無法進入大學而逐漸黯淡的前途、父母「沒進大學人生便沒希望」的壓力、被夢中情人莫妮卡唾棄，這些都是巴比特的惡夢，巴特比和他的朋友，一群毫無經驗的高中生，在對「自由主義」一詞做出廣義解釋之後，他們突發奇想的仿造了一張入學通知，進而仿造了一間大學，順便做了網站，最後，乾脆一不做二不休的將一間被廢棄的精神病院改裝成南哈蒙理工學院，South Harmon Institute of Technology的校舍。 (XD)
Bartleby Gaines:.....I'm an expert in rejection, and I can see it on your faces. And it's too bad that you judge us by the way we look and not by who we are. Just because you want us to be more like them when the truth is we're not like them. And I am damn proud of that fact. I mean, Harmon College and their 100 years of tradition. But tradition of what? Of hazing kids and humiliating anyone who's a bit different? Of putting so much pressure on kids they turn into these stress freaks and caffeine addicts.
Dean Van Horne: Your curriculum is a joke, and you, sir, are a criminal.
Bartleby Gaines: You know what? You're a criminal. 'Cause you rob these kids of their creativity and their passion. That's the real crime! Well, what about you parents? Did the system really work out for you? Did it teach you to follow your heart, or to just play it safe, roll over? What about you guys? Did you always want to be school administrators? Dr. Alexander, was that your dream? Or maybe no, maybe you wanted to be a poet. Maybe you wanted to be a magician or an artist. Maybe you just wanted to travel the world. ......But out of that desperation, something happened that was so amazing. Life was full of possibilities. ...... We don't need your approval to tell us that what we did was real. 'Cause there are so few truths in this world, that when you see one, you just know it. And I know that it is a truth that real learning took place at South Harmon. Whether you like it or not, it did. 'Cause you don't need teachers or classrooms or fancy highbrow traditions or money to really learn. You just need people with a desire to better themselves, and we got that by the shit at South Harmon. So you can go ahead, sign your forms, reject us and shoot us down, and do whatever you gotta do. It doesn't really matter at this point. Because we'll never stop learning, and we'll never stop growing, and we'll never forget the ideals what were instilled in us at our place. 'Cause we are SHIT heads now, and we'll be SHIT heads forever and nothing you say can do or stamp can take that away from us! So go!
