A girl teases a classmate about the hole in his smile. "It'll happen to you," the boy tells her. "No," she responds, "girls are different." The boy goes on to tell her about baby teeth, what happens to everybody, and about all the cool things happening to him. He has his very own dentist; she took pictures of his teeth and showed them to him. He gets to sit in a special chair in an office and spit. But the girl doesn't want to talk about it anymore. She walks away. Then, her tongue feels something. It's a loose tooth . . . .
