I'd say coming clean and apologizing seems your best route.
Honesty is STILL the best policy.
Sheldon, your best bet is your local version of GameStop
gaming store. Or, if one still exists in your area... a DVD rental store. They have the means to polish out damaged discs so they can re-rent them again.
That disc appears to have been exposed to heat and pressure to create such an imprint. Probably from books laid on the discs, perhaps on top of the DVD player which created the heat and pressure.
If the polishing at the rental place does not work, you need to replace the disc AFTER apologizing to your mother.
If it was MY DVD of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
, there would be hell to pay! The Final Frontier
, meh, not so much.
