Weymouth (Weymo,Weytown, Weydub) is a crummy town separated into 3 main parts:
- South Weymouth (S-Dub): Preppy captital of WeyTown, probably the least boring palce, but still boring. East Weymouth usually hates south weymouth for it's popped colalrs. Preppy and Happening.
- North Weymouth (N-Dub):basically a Braintree in a nut-shell (aka a highway). Braintree is rumored to be developing a shpere of influence to slowly suck N-Dub into its scary, cold, concrete domain. Weird and Stupid
- East Weymouth (E-dub): Often thought of as the "cool part", E-dub includes Town Hall, the original high school (now owned by Sdub), and the projects. Centered around Jackson Square, Edub is the almost as stuck up as Sdub but definitly has had more real-ife un sheltered experiences than them. Outspoken and Cool.
- West Weymouth? (DubDub?): There is no West-Dub. It was taken over by braintree after it lost quincy.
