Episode 1.01: "The Pilot"
"Bill ate the booger!"
|The coolest kid at White House Elementary, if not for the fact that

skater friends to go to the skate park with, and pretty much hung out with the other kids
by default. But that's okay because they accepted him as one of them, and eventually

Over the years, the show's writers gave George more and more "smart

the show's writers did it on purpose. I'll have to find where I saved a copy so I
can add it to the website (or if anybody out there wants to mail it to me, please do so at
- George's glasses aren't prescription. He just wears them for show.
