Super Cool Matt in Teacher's Pet
It's mid afternoon in Metropolitan City. Matt
Nicholson & his wife Six are @ Vic's Diner having
dinner (Six had chicken fried steak & Matt had a
hamburger platter). Waitress Beth brought their
drinks & gave Six iced tea & Matt a chocolate shake.
"Miss," Matt said, "I ordered a strawberry
"I'm sorry," she said, "I must be a dingy!"
Waitress Linda came by their table & got Matt's
Just then, Linda's 10 year old son, Marcos,
arrived with guitar case in hand. He just returned
from his weekly guitar lesson.
"Hey Marcos!" said Carol Jean Canterbury, another
waitress, "How about playing us a song. Do 'The
Yellow Rose of Texas'!"
"No!" snapped Vic, the cook, "Don't allow no
music in the diner, not even a jukebox. So cram it!"
"Vic," snapped Carol, "Kiss my oatmeal!"
"I have the feeling were in another Mel's Diner."
"What did you learn in guitar class?" asked Linda
to Marcos. But he wouldn't talk, so she complained,
"I can't believe that I spent $200 for an electric
guitar & amp he saw on sale @ Quarter Note Music, now
he's taking guitar lessons for $25 a month."
"Mom, I don't want to talk about it. I don't
feel like it." said Marcos asking, "Will you excuse
me?" He went to the gentlemen's room.
Minutes later, Matt had to use the gentlemen's
room. Unsuspectingly, he heard Marcos crying to
himself outside the diner.
"Mr. Studewood will set the diner on fire if I
ever tell anybody what happened in guitar class."
Matt left the bathroom quietly. Then he & Six
left the diner.
At the penthouse, Matt told Six that Marcos is
Super Cool Matt's #1 fan & friend. Then he told Six
what he learned that if Marcos spilled the beans, his
guitar teacher would set the diner on fire.
"Matt," Six suggested, "I think Marcos is taking
lessons from a child molester."
"No way!" said Matt.
"Matt," Six explained, "People like that would
often trick them into doing things that's wrong & then
threaten to do something harmful to their loved ones
if they tell on them. Maybe Marcos needs another
visit from SC Matt."
"You're right." he said, "I'll talk to him the
day before his next guitar lesson."
The day before his guitar lesson, Marcos was
walking home from school to his apartment building.
There he saw SC Matt on The Super Cool 4000.
"Hey Marcos, let's go for a ride." said SC Matt
handing a helmet for him to wear.
One of the neighbors complained & told Marcos not
to go off with a stranger. SC Matt showed the
neighbor his badge for proof he's real. Since the
sidecar was full, Marcos rode behind SC Matt as he
drove the SC 4000. They speeded down U.S. 287 North &
went 15 miles outside Metropolitan City to the next
rest area. SC Matt pulled over & had a talk with his
"You're taking guitar lessons, aren't you?" asked
SC Matt, "Is your teacher causing you trouble?"
"The word on the street is that if you squeal,
he'll set Vic's Diner on fore."
"Take me home SC Matt!" yelled Marcos angrily,
"Someone told!" Marcos got all panicky as he got off
the bike & ran to a picnic table. SC Matt caught him
"What's going on Marcos, I need to know! You're
my friend & #1 fan, but I'm also a cop." Marcos
started crying loudly, then he asked, "Does your
guitar teacher ever touch you?"
Marcos was crying, "Yes! Happy! Now he'll burn
my mom's diner down!" SC Matt grabbed Marcos & had
him cry on his shoulder.
"Marcos," he said in a nice tone, "I'm very proud
of you for telling me this. Your mother would be
proud as well."
"No she wouldn't!" he cried, "She'd blame me,
take my guitar & amp to a pawn shop & ground me for
"Marcos, you didn't do anything wrong!" explained
SC Matt. Then he went to the sidecar & got out a
guitar case with his acoustic guitar in it. Then he
strummed as he sang,
"There are strangers who trick kids to do
something that's wrong.
If they want to hurt you badly,
then listen to this song.
You got to run, scream & yell.
Say no, go & tell!"
SC Matt played a small guitar solo. Marcos felt
a little better. Then he told him about a plan how to
trap Mr. Studewood & wants him to act like nothing
happened. After putting the guitar up back in the
case & in the sidecar, SC Matt drove Marcos home.
The next day, Marcos went to his guitar lesson @
Mr. Studewood's. Marcos played what he learned while
Mr. Studewood was impressed.
"Cool, you learn fast." complimented Mr.
Studewood, "I wanna show you something."
Mr. Studewood placed a vcr tape in & showed
Marcos a video about an infamous rap/rock star.
"That's Marxy Marx." he explained, "Coolest
performer ever. He can rap, sing, play tympani,
percussion & guitar. Marxy's famous for performing in
his underwear, with practice, you could be the next
Marxy Marx! Take off your pants while I get the
"NO!" exclaimed Marcos, "I won't do it!"
Mr. Studewood was going to his closet to get the
camcorder until someone grabbed him from the closet.
"The kid said NO!"
"SC Matt!" he said fearfully asking, "But how?
Never mind, I'm going to burn the diner down!"
"I don't think so!" he said. SC Matt started
fighting Mr. Studewood telling him he saw evidence
from the other students. SC Matt knocked him down,
cuffed him as the police arrived to take away the
"Great job setting up that sting, SC Matt!" said
That evening @ the diner when it was closing, SC
Matt was watching Marcos explaining to his mother what
was going on with his guitar lessons.
"I can't believe that happened!" she screamed,
"Of all the rotten people, why did this have to happen
to my son?"
"He got his just desserts." said SC Matt, "It
wasn't easy for Marcos to come out telling the truth.
He was scared enough that his teacher would set the
diner on fire if he told."
"Marcos," she said as he went to her, she gave
him a hug, "You did the right thing. I'm very proud
of you & that you might have helped other people out
by telling. I'm not angry @ you, only @ that teacher.
However, I think I'll suspend guitar lessons for a
while since I was had."
SC Matt gave his mother the money back she spent
for those guitar lessons.
"I still can't afford lessons of what I make @
"Watch it Linda!" snapped Vic.
"I think I got an idea." said SC Matt.
A month later, Marcos checked his mailbox & saw a
package from SC Matt. It was a videotape. Marcos
played the tape on the vcr & saw SC Matt play a cool
guitar solo & sang the SC Bros. theme song. Then he
"Marcos, grab your guitar. It's time for your
monthly guitar lessons. Remember, every month for the
next year, I'll send you a new tape. Then you & I can
