The scene from The Glass Castle that presented a universal topic was when Jeanette's dad would come to the home drunk and Jeannette would try to clean up after him. In the scene, the father would come home drunk and have a rampage destroying the home. Once he was asleep she would try to clean the mess he had left but her mom would insist because he wouldn't see the mess he caused. A quote to prove this, “He came home in such a drunken fury that Mom usually hid while we kids tried to calm him down. He broke windows and smashed dishes and furniture until he'd spent all his anger; then he'd look around at the mess and at us kids standing there.

After they had eaten and Mrs. Smith was a little calmer, Mr. Smith pinned the mum on her to cheer her up and they went to go talk to the
So, the commercial then shows the dog waiting all night and some of the next morning for his owner to come home, and then the screen goes black saying, “For some, the waiting never ended. But we can change that”. Then the owner walks through the front door saying he is back and that he decided to stay at his friend Dave’s house because he didn’t think it was a good idea to drive home last night. Then the commercial cuts to a black screen again saying, “Make a plan to make it home. Your friends are counting on you”, and then shows the dog licking the owners face because he is glad that he came back home.

One particularly oxygen-deprived pupil stood just by the passageway in front of a spell bound audience as he described his own plan to release two oiled pigs in the school, numbered one and three in order to trick the staff. Trite such as this was about as original as a hipster in a vinyl (record) store and was unlikely to ever reach fruition, yet to my dismay was the topic of conversation throughout the groups which gathered. Do not, however, be fooled by my apparent contempt for those around me. I too was roused by the principal’s announcement and intended to make a mark on the school in my final week. For years I had been what one would consider to be a model of student conformity, arriving each morning without failure, completing my work without question and then buggering off at the end of the day without anyone knowing my name; a perfect “cog in the machine” to use the words of my cliqued peers.

Thus, Cyganik took it upon himself to help Bullock in giving his home a makeover.
The school year progresses and Kenny keeps us up to speed on the highlights, which mostly involve Byron getting into trouble. He beats up Larry Dunn, he sets things on fire, he kills a bird with a cookie (no, we 're not kidding) and then gets really upset about it. At this point, we 're all a little confused about what exactly is going on with this kid, and Momma and Dad are pretty frustrated.
