Take the fall
I got you
Have someone's back
If I go down, you're coming with me
Take one for the team
[School bell rings]
CJ: Hey, Ben! Want to do something fun?
Ben: Not really, I know your idea of fun, CJ, and it’s going to get us in trouble.
CJ: Oh come on! We’re twins, we should be doing fun things together! Just one last time! It’s our last year in this school together.
Ben: Ugh, fine. What do you want to do?
CJ: We should graffiti this door and then say it was the new kid who did it, Brock!
Ben: What?! First of all, that’s insane. That’s Mrs. Whitman’s classroom. Trust me, you don’t want to see Mrs. Whitman angry. That woman’s scary. Secondly, why would you let Brock take the fall?
CJ: Because… I don’t know.
Ben: Wait, I think I know why. That’s because you’re jealous. Because you used to be the most popular guy in school before he got here and now everybody seems to like him even more than you.
CJ: Yeah, yeah, whatever. Here, take this and draw whatever you want. Come on, hurry!
Ben: Wait, why me? I don’t want to get suspended.
CJ: It’s going to be fine, I got you.
Ben: You got me, really? Like last time? See? You always say you have my back and then when we get caught, you always let me take the blame, but it ain’t happening this time, alright CJ? If I go down, you’re coming with me.
CJ: Fine, I don’t care. Plus, I told you. We’ll blame it on Brock and then everybody will hate him for getting Mrs. Whitman upset. Come on, she’s coming.
Ben: What should I draw?
CJ: I don’t know. Just something! I’ll be inside.

Mrs. Whitman: What in the-? Who did that? I said “Who did that”? I will not tolerate this type of behavior. Now, I want to know immediately who graffitied my door, or else the whole class is going to get detention.
Brock: I did it, Mrs. Whitman.
Mrs. Whitman: Brock, you did that?
Girl: Brock, what are you doing? You didn’t do it.
Brock: Taking one for the team, girl. It’s alright.
Mrs. Whitman: Alright, Brock. Come with me.
Ben: I guess your plan didn’t exactly work the way you thought, CJ.
