Ice Princess

Hold on!
- Almost ready?
- Uh-huh.

I have a surprise for you.
That does it.
I think the whole effect
is very grown up,

with a nod to femininity.
We've evolved past flaunting it,
but we don't have to deny it.

I mean, you are going to be mingling
with your future prospective
classmates and professors,

and I really wanted the look to say,
"We are serious. "

Well, it definitely succeeds.
Mom, we don't have to stay at this thing
for more than an hour, right?

Um, because...
there's something I have to tell you.

Oh... Oh, honey.
- What was that?
- I've been so worried.

You've been living at that rink,
but you're here, now.

And you're excited, because
you understand what's really important.

Look, I've got goose bumps.
I'm sorry, that was so type A of me.
Mom disease.

Just relax. Just be yourself.
Your normal, poised,
charming, articulate...

Do you wanna go over it
one more time?

Hi. I'm Casey Carlyle,
and I'm attracted
to the physics program because...

Physics rocks.
In sophomore year, you can join
the Quantum Club and that rocks

because we compete against
Cal Tech, MIT and Stanford.

Last year, our ion particle accelerator
took first place.

It rocked.
Sounds really, um... rockin'.
It is, it really is.
Do you know what I think is great?
If Casey's scholarship works out,

I'm sensing that you two will be
spending scads of time together.
