Anthony is picked up in by Luke (David Haynes), a lonely/creepy rich kid who demands Anthony “become my friend” before he lets him in the car. Seriously, it is a really awkward exchange. Check it out.
Anyway, Anthony enrolls in school and, wouldn’t you know it, Dick and his crew also go to school there. But it gets better as this dialog exchange between Dick and an underling shows.
Underling: Hey Dick!

Ah, those wacky Italians, how I love them!
