Sixteen Candles (1984) Script

It looks good.

On the northwest toll, eastbound traffic is moving nicely this morning...

From Beecham Road down to River Road.

Westbound, there's now a 20-car backup at the Devon Avenue toll.

And on the northbound I-290 extension at Thorndale Avenue, we had a spinout there.

And that car was blocking the right-hand Lane...

And also blocking the Lane that's coming off of the, uh, eastbound Thorndale Avenue entrance ramp...

Leading to the northbound, uh, I-290 extension.

This was causing a backup to Irving park. We have...

Come on, chop-chop. We got relatives invading this afternoon.

Ginny, Mike, Sara, Sam! Come on. Everybody up!

Oh, I think I have a fever.

You don't have a fever.

Shut your face. Make me.

Dad, Mike hit me!

You liar. Mike, come on, pal. We got a wedding tomorrow.

Try to cooperate, will you? Dad, I didn't hit her.

I'd like to very much, and I probably will later, but give me a break.

You know my method. I don't hit her when you're just down the hall.

Pick on someone your own size.

Open this door.

Daddy, I'm the one getting married.

Not until tomorrow. I've got a mouthful of toothpaste.

I happen to have a serious problem.

Dad.

She got her period. Should make for an interesting honeymoon, huh?

Where are you learning that stuff? School.

Good. Getting my money's worth.

They were fantastic. Just great. What a great crowd.

♪ You got to walk into town to find a job ♪

♪ You're trying to keep your hands warm ♪ Chronologically, you're 16 today.

Physically, you're still 15.

Hopeless.

Nope. I look exactly the same as I have since summer.

Utterly forgettable.

No, I didn't expect to wake up transformed.

I just thought that turning 16 would be so major...

That I'd wake up with an improved mental state that would show on my face.

All it shows is that I don't have any sort of a tan left.

I better get downstairs.

My family's probably pissed off I haven't let them wish me Happy Birthday yet.

All right. I'll see you at school.

You need four inches of bod and a great birthday.

Where's my briefcase? Where'd you leave it?

Don't be a smart-ass. Okay, I'll be a dumb-ass.

You already are.

Okay, where's Sam? Where's my briefcase?

Sam? Allow me, Brenda. Hey, birth defect!

You missed breakfast again.

It wasn't my idea to give her her own phone line.

Grab a doughnut.

It's small. It's brown. It's made of leather.

It has my initials on it. And I believe... that's it.

Don't forget the grandparents are coming this afternoon.

Are we still having dinner with the rice chex?

Rizczechs. 8:00 at the club.

You'd better learn their names. As of tomorrow, they're family.

That's a lovely thought. Hmm.

When it comes your turn to get married, do me a favor. Elope.

Who'd marry her? Mr. t.

I'm sorry, you'll have to buy lunch today. I didn't have time to fix your carrots.

She's only eating carrots to increase the size of her breasts.

Mister, you had better shape up, or you will miss your sister's wedding.

Promise?

Now, don't give me that pouty look of yours.

You can eat your carrots when you get home.

That's it? You don't have anything else to say to me today?

What would you like me to say, Sam?

Come on now, honey. You're going to miss the bus.

Have a good day.

I can't believe this.

They fucking forgot my birthday.


I'm sure they didn't forget your birthday.

They just didn't remember it right away. Same difference.

It's a drag your sweet 16's the day before Ginny gets married.

But big deal. They'll remember. Oh, easy for you to say.

Did anyone ever forget your birthday? Come on, Sam.

Everything's getting shittier. My family forgetting my birthday just makes it more vivid.

What do you expect, a breakfast birthday party?

No, but they could have at least said "happy"

"birthday." It was just like any other day.

Why don't you remind them?

They'll feel some massive guilt. It could be highly profitable.

I wouldn't stoop to remind them.

Since I was about 12, I've been looking forward to my sweet 16.

You know, a big party and a band, with tons of people. Tons of people.

And a big trans am in the driveway with a ribbon around it.

And some incredibly gorgeous guy that you meet in France.

And you do it on a cloud without getting pregnant or herpes.

I don't need the cloud. Just a pink trans am and the guy, right?

A black one. A black guy?

A black trans am. A pink guy.

Oh, no.

You swear to God, you don't have it? I don't know anything about it.

Jennifer woods gave me a sex test during child development.

And I was supposed to do it and pass it to you in independent study.

I'm totally screwed. Did you put your name on it?

Hi. No, but it was really embarrassing.

I had to name who I'd do it with if I ever did it.

Who'd you name?

Jake Ryan. Jake Ryan? He doesn't even know you exist.

Thank you. That's a very nice thing to say.

I'm sorry. But Jake Ryan?

He's a senior, and he's taken. I mean, really taken.

I know. It was supposed to be my ideal.

He's ideal, for sure, but forget it.

God, I hope whoever got the note doesn't know it was me who wrote it.

I'd shit twice and die.

Do you know Samantha Baker?

Sophomore, right?

Yeah. What do you think of her?

I don't.

Would you ever go out with her?

Depends on how much you paid me.

She's not ugly.

There's nothing there, man.

It's not ugly. It's just... Void.

You know what I mean? There's something about her.

I do independent study with her. I catch her looking at me a lot.

It's kind of cool, the way she's always looking at me.

Maybe she's retarded.

I'm being serious, okay?

She looks at me like she's in love with me.

Jake, she's a child.

So? So what're you going to do with her?

She's obviously too young to party serious.

Maybe I'm interested in more than a party.

Come on, Jake. You talk like you're hard up.

You got Caroline. Now she's a woman.

It's unbelievable.

I swear to God, Caroline mulford had to flunk about nine grades.

Truly makes me ill.

She's perfect.

Practically impossible to cut up. She's supposedly real sweet.

Brother's deaf, and everybody in the world worships her.

And she's going with Jake.

Oh, I'm going to kill myself.

My man.

I loathe the bus.

There has to be a more dignified mode of transportation.

I hope you get a car for your birthday, and a license.

Let's not hold our breath.

Score... a direct hit.

On second thought.


♪ Hey ♪

Move it!

Call me, okay? You call me first. Tell me what happened at home.

I can tell you right now. Nothing.

Will you quit feeling sorry for yourself? It's bad for your complexion!


How's it going?

How's what going?

You know, things, life, whatnot.

Life is not whatnot, and it's none of your business.

Hmm. So you going to the new faces dance tonight, or...

That's also none of your business.

Are you inhibited about dancing in public?

I mean, you don't have to dance.

Maybe you could just stand there with me and my dudes and just be you, and... - sounds major.

So, I mean, what's the story? I mean, you got a guy, or...

Yes, three big ones, and they lust wimp blood.

So quit bugging me, or I'll sic them all over your weenie ass.

You know, I'm getting input here that I'm reading as relatively hostile.

I mean, it's just... Go to hell.

Very hostile.

Come on, what's the problem here? I'm a boy, you're a girl.

Is there anything wrong with me trying to put together some kind of relationship between us?

Look, I know you have to go. Just answer one question.

Yes, you're a total fag.

That's not the question.

Am I turning you on?

It's encouraging.

Very encouraging. Yeah, uh-huh.

You know, a girl with a hat is just so... whew.

So vogue. Uh, y-yeah.

Where are my blue socks, Dorothy?

You mean you didn't pack them? Oh, not again, Howard.

Can't I trust you to do anything?

Do you expect me to do all the packing?

Well, at least I brought this for you. It...

Sam! Samantha.

Look. Oh, look.

Hi! Hi!

Oh, God.

Oh, sweetheart!

My goodness, are you a sight for sore eyes.

Oh, good!

Just look. How are you, my little lamb chop? Hello!

I'm fine, grandpa.

How are you guys?

Oh, pretty good. Of course, I get lower back pain.

Oh, my corns are killing me. My arthritis in my fingers bothers me quite a bit...

So are you, uh... you're sleeping up here?

Yeah. Yeah.

Your grandfather Fred jumped our claim on Sara's room.

So here we are up here.

Well, I haven't seen you in a while. Do I look any older today?

Oh, no, no. I wouldn't say so. Do you think so?

No. Oh, I hope it isn't cold tomorrow.

You know Ginny.

It's not going to be cold. She'll refuse to wear a coat over her wedding dress.

If she does, you mustn't bug her... I'm not going to bug her...

I'm going to go set myself up in Mike's room.

So I'll see you guys later.

Okay, sweetheart. Look, there she goes.

Your grandpa and I are looking forward to a nice, long visit with you.

Aces. We certainly are.

See you a little later, darling. We've got a lot to...

I swear to God, this has got to be a joke.

Grandparents forgetting a birthday?

They live for that shit.

Put my arms around you ♪ Well, well, if it isn't Sammy Baker...

Davis, junior.

Hi, grandpa. Oh, I've got one for you.

Knock, knock. Who's there?

Who. Who, who?

Helen, we've got an owl out here in the hall.

Oh, Fred, Fred, leave her alone.

You'll make her tinkle. Oh, come on, Helen.

Oh, Sam, let me look at you.

Oh.

Fred, she's gotten her boobies.

I'd better go get my magnifying glass.

Oh, and they are so perky!

I can't believe my grandmother actually felt me up.

What's happening, hot stuff?

His name is long duk dong.

What? Long duk dong.

He came down with grandma and grandpa Baker.

He's an exchange student that's living with them.

Yeah, well, he's totally bizarre. He is not.

He is a very sweet boy.

I just hope you burn the sheets and mattresses after he leaves.

I don't suppose it makes any difference to you, but there's a very weird Chinese guy up in Mike's room.

Ginny dumped Rudy. He's her new fiancée.

Mike, stop it.

Sam, honey, do you think you could help the grandmothers with supper?

Dad and I have to go to the club for dinner with the rice chex.

Rizczechs. Oh. Rizczechs.

Uh, do you think that there's any reason...

That I should possibly stay home tonight?

Well, it might be nice if you'd visit...

With your grandparents and long duk dong.

Who?

The weird Chinese guy in Mike's room. Oh.

I think I have a dance to go to. Well, that's okay.

Oh, can you remember to turn off the stove in 20 minutes?

I can remember lots of things.

This is the single worst day of my entire life.

What the hell are you bitching about?

I got to sleep under some chinaman named after a duck's dork.

Well, where am I sleeping?

Sofa city, sweetheart.

Do you think grandpa Fred's going to embarrass me?

I don't know why not. He does to everyone else.

He already asked me if Rudy was the oily variety bohunk.

Is he? Don't be cute.

I really love Rudy.

And he is totally enamored of me.

I mean, I've had men who've loved me before, but not for six months in a row.

I think I'm in love.

So how long have you been in love, hmm?

Well, it hasn't really happened yet.

So what's the deal?

I'm not sure that he knows I exist.

Sam, I really don't have time for this.

Well, I'm sorry.

I always listen to you talk about your boyfriends.

Darling, is something bothering you?

You're really acting like... An asshole.

And I think I know what it is.

I think you're jealous that I'm getting married...

And that I'm getting all the attention, hmm?

You know, everybody in this family...

Has just gone totally outer limits.

No, Sam.

I think you're just being a little selfish and immature.

Oh, yes. That's it.

That's exactly it.

Unbelievable.

You make someone a bridesmaid, and they shit all over you.

Very clever dinner.

Appetizing food fit neatly into interesting round pie.

It's a quiche. Hmm. How do you spell?

Well, you don't spell it, son. You eat it.

Dong has only been in our country a short time, Fred.

I think we could all help him assimilate. Oh.

Long duk dong is about your age, Sam.

You two should have a lot to chat about.

I love, uh, visiting with grandma and grandpa...

And writing letters to parents...

And pushing lawn-mowing machine...

So grandpa's hyena don't get disturbed.

Hernia!

Oh, yes, yes, yes, indeedy.

He does the dishes and helps with the laundry. You betcha.

May I be excused?

Where are you going?

I have a dance to go to... At school.

It's a very important dance.

Uh, we're being graded on it... For gym.

Wait a minute. I have a wonderful idea.

Would you like to go to the dance with Sam?

I wonder if Jake's here.

I don't think it's healthy to get jacked about some guy that isn't a thing yet.

Yeah, when you don't have anything, you don't have anything to lose, right?

That's a cheerful thought.

Let's go make ourselves available.

That's the one, dude. Scope it out.

She doesn't look like a freshman. Sophomore, dude. Sophomore.

Fully aged sophomore meat.

We do the bus together. You talk to her?

Talk? Dude, I have a relationship with her. Get out.

Figure to, like, 17 digits.

Ja... Jake's my boy!

He asked me about you. Did not!

He did too. He did! He asked me what you were like.

Oh, my... oh! If you're lying, I'll beat the crap out of you. I'm not lying.

Oh, my God! What should I do? Should I go up to him?

Should I say, "hi, Jake, I'm Samantha"? Maybe I should let him come to me.

This is not my department. But what if I let him come to me, and he forgets?

What if he changes his mind? Then I'm totally screwed, right?

Apparently so.

What would you do if you were me?

I'm a gambling man by nature.

And, um, I'd go for it.

This is so strange. But I think I will. Oh, you're the best.

Wait, um... What?

Do you know anything about floppy disks?

We'll talk about this on the bus, okay? The thing is, I've got a problem.

Floppy disks are pretty expensive.

Yes, you do. I know.

Come on. Trace. You guys.

Would you help me, please?

Oh, shit! Come on, you guys. I'm your prom queen.

Trace, you guys, I'm serious.

Come on. I need help.

Okay. I need help too.

What is the problem? Several things.

Okay. We'll help you.

Don't go away, Caroline, baby.

Hello? Hello?

Listen, I know you're there. I can hear you breathing.

Yes, hello, sir. Um...

Are you the little bugger that's been calling up...

And then hanging up?

Would it be possible to tell me if there is a Samantha Baker there?

And if so, sir, may I converse with her briefly?

Yes, it is. And no, you may not.

Might I leave a message, sir?

He wants to leave a message for Sam.

Here, give me that phone.

Now, you listen to me, mister.

God did not put me on this earth to be awakened by filthy suggestions...

From a foul-mouthed hooligan like you.

And as for our granddaughter, I'm sure she has more than enough sense...

To stay clear of the likes of you!

Now, good night and good-bye!

That was great.

Sam's lucky she has us, Howard. Yeah.

Even if she doesn't appreciate us.

Do you promise you won't get mad? No, I love you.

Okay, close your eyes.

Scalpel. Scalpel.

Oooh! My God.

That was wonderful!

I don't know how to thank you enough.

My pleasure.

My God! Wow.

I hope they have insurance. The party's over.


What a disaster.


Jake!

Sam.

Sweetheart?

Daddy? Hi, kiddo.

What's wrong? Nothing. Everything's fine.

I was just upstairs, and I couldn't sleep.

I feel like a real jerk, honey.

We forgot your birthday.

I bet you're really P.O.'d, huh?

No, it's okay. I'm not really all that upset anymore.

This wedding is really turning this entire house inside out.

And I just came down to tell you that we did remember.

Thanks, dad.

Happy Birthday.

Is something else wrong?

No, why?

I don't know, I just get the feeling that something's bothering you.

Something other than your birthday.

No, I'm fine. Really.

I think I know what it is.

It has to do with a certain guy?

I know, honey. I know.

We're all upset that Ginny's marrying a bohunk.

What's the matter?

I meant Jake.

Jake?

Wait a minute. I thought she said his name was Rudy. Forget it.

Forget what? Who's Jake?

He's a boy, daddy. It's nothing.

Okay? Just forget it, please.

Come on, Sam. We're not communicating.

It's extremely embarrassing, okay?

What's embarrassing?

Sitting in the dark with your dad, telling him about your love life.

I'm afraid you lost me again, Sam.

Jake is a senior, and he's beautiful and perfect.

I like him a real lot, and he doesn't like me. Okay?

Oh.

And he's got this incredible girlfriend.

I'm just this ridiculous dork that's following him around like a puppy.

Why do you think you're a dork?

I don't think you're a dork. I don't think mom thinks you're a dork.

Mike thinks I'm a dork. Mike is a dork.

But so am I.

Well, if it's any consolation, I love you.

And if this guy can't see in you all the beautiful and wonderful things that I see, then he's got the problem.

I know. It just hurts.

That's why they call them crushes.

If they were easy, they'd call them something else.

But if I were Ginny, I'd have this guy crawling on his knees.

Well, let me tell you something about Ginny.

Now, I love her as much as I love you. But she's a different person.

Sometimes I worry about her.

When you're given things kind of easily, you don't always appreciate them.

With you, I'm not worried.

When it happens to you, Samantha, it'll be forever.

Well, I don't think I'll be able to sleep if I don't feel this little talk has helped you.

So would you be a sport and lie to me?

Yeah, sure, daddy.

Good night, sweetheart. Good night.

Oh, one more thing, sweetheart.

What?

When you do find the right guy, don't let him boss you around.

Make sure he knows you wear the pants in the family.

These are really hers? Yeah.

How did you get them?

She gave them to me.

Did you... no! No, Jake.

She's crying for you.

I told her you asked about her. Right? The girl freaked.

She had a hissy. She thinks you're the cat's meow. Really?

Yeah. She came up to me in the gym tonight.

She looked at me like I was a leper.

Girls'll do that, Jake.

You see, they know guys are, like, in perpetual heat, right?

They know this shit. And they enjoy pumping us up.

It's pure power politics, I'm telling you.

I thought she hated my guts.

Games, Jake. Silly, torturous games.

You know how many times a week I go without lunch because some bitch borrows my lunch money?

Any halfway decent girl can rob me blind!

Because I'm too torqued up to say no.

It's heinous, I'm telling you.

You better not be dicking me around.

It'd be a major downer to try and get together...

And find out she really does think I'm a slime.

Jake, would I dick you?

Let me put it to you this way.

What happens to me if I dick you?

I'd kick your ass.

Right. So why would I lie?

But I feel compelled to mention, Jake, if all you want is a piece of ass, I mean, I'll either do it myself, or get someone bigger than me, to kick your ass.

I mean, not many girls in contemporary American society today...

Would give their underwear to help a geek like me.

I can get a piece of ass anytime I want.

Shit, I got Caroline in my bedroom right now, passed out cold.

I could violate her ten different ways if I wanted to.

What are you waiting for? I don't know.

She's beautiful, and she's built and all that.

I'm just not interested anymore.

Does that really matter, guy? Yeah, it matters.

She's totally insensitive. Look what she did to my house.

She doesn't know shit about love.

Only thing she cares about is partying.

I want a serious girlfriend.

Somebody I can love, that's going to love me back.

Is that psycho?

That's beautiful, Jake.

I think a ton of guys feel the same way as you do. Really?

Yeah. It's just they don't... they don't have the balls to admit it.

You know? They're just... They're wimps.

Samantha's, uh... she's really special, you know?

I'll make a deal with you.

Let me keep these. I'll let you take Caroline home.

But you got to make sure she gets home. You can't leave her in some parking lot somewhere.

Okay?

Jake, I'm only a freshman.

So? She's so blitzed, she won't know the difference.

Jake, I don't have a car. You can take mine.

Jake, I don't have a license. I trust you.

Jake, I'd love to. I can't. Want a pretzel?

You sure? Positive.

I got her. You got her?

Yeah.

Is this, uh, your car, Jake? No, this is my dad's car.

You said you couldn't drive a stick.

This is a mother...

This is a Rolls-Royce, Jake.

So? So! So.

I heard the grill alone cost five grand on this.

Five grand! I don't have five grand.

Then don't hit anything. Ahh, don't hit anything.

Do you want to do this or not?

No.

Who the hell? Who does he...


Mm-hmm. Mmm.

Who's he? That's me.

Who are you? I'm him.

Oh.

Okay.

She's totally gone. Have fun.

Thanks.

Jake, is your dad a big man, or... About 6'4".

Very nice.

Ho.

Ohh. Oh.

Ho.

Easy. Easy.

♪ Hey, sucker ♪

♪ What the hell's got into you ♪

♪ Hey, sucker ♪

Oh, sexy girlfriend.

Banzai!


Think they liked us? Definitely.

Whoo! Go, darling geek!

Uh, could we turn that music down? I'm a first-time driver.

I need to concentrate.

Excuse me! Stop that.

Looks like rain. Better put the top up!

Will you stop that? You can get us in a lot of trouble doing that!

This is a car!

It hasn't got triple a on it.

Chugalug, pooh bear.

I can't believe you're so popular, acting like this.

Relax! Hello?

Oh, uh, I don't know. I'll have to look.

Mr. Ryan, are you in here? He's not... Mr. Ryan's not in right now.

My Christmas present to you!

Thank you. No. Really. Serious.

See? See?

Thank you.

Now we're both on the pill!

You gave me a birth control pill?

You have any idea what that'll do to a guy my age?

I know exactly what it'll do to a girl my age.

"Just climb in the car!" Shit.

It makes it okay to be super careless. Wait, wait!

Ha-ha!

Look, we're not going any further until you stop these childish antics.

Don't be such a poop.

Huh. On second thought.

I love you.

This is getting good.


Ted, what the hell are you doing?

Are those humongous jocks back?

Do you have any film in your camera? What?

Take those ridiculous things off.

Do you have any film in your camera? Sure.

Okay. Go get it and bring it outside. Okay? Right out front.

What for? Look, just get it and come on out front, okay?

U.F.O.? It's better.

Extraterrestrial? It's better! All right? Just get it and come outside.

Female extraterrestrial?

It's better than... shh!

Better than female extraterrestrial?

How do you tell if it's a female? 'Cause it's got tits.

What makes them different than regular tits?

They got four. Just get the camera. It's in the closet.

Don't go in the closet.

Such assholes. I can't believe it.

You should check that out. Why do you always have to argue?

I'm not arguing. I am not! I am not! Yes, you are. Yes, you are.

Every time I do something, bitch, bitch, bitch.

Bitch is a female dog.

I am not even. What's that supposed to mean?

Shit! Shoot!

Ted, that's a Rolls-Royce.

Ted, that's the prom queen. You got two girls in one night.

I told you dudes I was hot. Hot? You're a legend!

Will you shut up? People around here work, all right?

Will you hurry it up? I'm breaking, like, 30 major laws here.

You know, Ted, nobody's going to believe you.

No way.

That, my friends, is what the pictures are for. Okay?

Just get that thing there.

Are you guys ready? Wait, hold on.

Put it down just a bit. You guys know what you're doing here?

All right, just a minute.

How's this look? Very nice.

Wait, black and white. It would capture the moment so nicely. Oooh.

Will you take the picture already?

You're pissing me off, I'm telling you.

Smile, pumpkin. What? Oh! Pictures!

Cheers!


Marlene! Ohh!

Chill out, boy.

Mike, honey. Go get dressed.

I can't believe it. Ginny's not in the shower.

I wouldn't go in there. Grandpa Fred was in there for a half an hour.

It's totally polluted. Get dressed.

It's your nose.

They never listen.

What was he wearing? Well, he would have...

He was wearing a red argyle sweater and tan trousers.

Mmm. And red shoes.

Hmm? No, he's not retarded.

Now, what can I do to help? Well, you could finish the French toast.

Good.

I'll, uh... I'll just open the doughnuts.

Good thinking. Oops. Don't want to lose the nails.

I'll just wait until I hear from you, then. Voila. Breakfast is ready.

Oh, Sam.

Sam, I am so sorry about your birthday.

It's okay. I'll recover.

It's important to you.

And yesterday morning, you were trying to tell me.

It's okay, mom.

These things sometimes happen.

Oh, honey, I just feel miserable.

You'll feel better.

Who died?

Uh...

Is there something you want to say to your sister?

What? Are you kidding? Where should I start?

I mean about her birthday.

It was yesterday. We all forgot.

Classic.

Deep down, he's really sorry.

No, he's not.

I have to go to this wedding and look like miss pretty princess...

In this dipshit's bridesmaid's dress.

I don't have one-tenth of the bod to fill the stupid bust up.

So what? Should I just waste myself and spare the agony?

I was going to tell you something, but maybe I shouldn't. It's pretty bad.

You may as well. Nothing could shock me anymore.

Last night at the dance, my little brother paid a buck to see your underwear.

Geez! I hate that rock 'n' roll rubbish!

Well, I'm afraid it's here to stay, Howie.

Sam, you're dragging your dress, honey. Pick it up.

Come on, Ginny. Hurry up, Susie. Why is she so slow?

Do not fuss at your sister. It's her wedding day. Big deal.

All right, is everybody in? Oh, dear. Are you all right, Ginny?

Come on, everybody.

Get in the car, please. We're late already.

Helen, will you get in the car? I don't know what they're fussing about.

Helen, get in the car!

Hey, Howard, there's your chinaman.

Thanks, Fred. Bye, dong.

What the... what's he doing on the ground there?

What happened?

Hold a mirror in front of his mouth. Howard! He's dead!

Aw, shit. I pay seven grand for a wedding, I'll never see it!

Oh, watch your language, Mr. dirty mouth.

Oh, thank God, he is still warm. Oh, good.

Here, I-I'll help you. Roll him over.

Ugh. Canine cologne.

Oh, no more yankie my wankie.

The donger need food!

Hell, he's three sheets to the wind!

He's drunk as a skunk! Shut up, Fred. Shut up.

Dong!

Dong.

Dong, grandpa is talking to you.

Dong! Where is my automobile?

Automobile?

Lake. Big lake.

Ohh!

Why, you little scuzzbag!

Oh, my. Is everything all right?

I was afraid you'd had an accident.

I wish. Her monthly bill came early.

Well, she's fine.

Uh, she just took a muscle relaxer.

Try four.

You didn't. Mother!

Damn, mom! I've got my headgear on. Will you wake up?

Where the hell am I?

I'll, uh, tell you where you are, if you'll tell me who you are.

Farmer Ted. You're in the parking lot across the street from my church.

You own a church?

What happened? I have no idea.

Did I do that to your hair?

At this point, anything is possible.

Um, I... uh...

Did, um...

Did we, uh... yeah.

I'm pretty sure.

Um, excuse me, but do you...

Do you know if... Um, did I enjoy it?

Am I nuts? Of course I enjoyed it.

I mean, um... what I meant was, uh, did you?

Hmm.

You know, I have this weird feeling I did.

Here, Ginny. Drink this.

Come on.

Here.

Wow.

Do I feel funky! Uh-huh.

Okay. I'm coming.

Hello? Geez, this place is so confusing.

Okay.

Go away! I call f.I.B.! I call police!

Go away! Open the door.

No way, Jose! Open the door.

You beat up my face! You grabbed my nuts.

Is that you? Yeah. That me.

Oh, I'm so sorry.

I thought you my new... New-style American girlfriend.

Forget it, man. Just get Samantha, all right?

She not here. Don't jerk me around, man. Where is she?

She got married. What?

She at the church. She getting married to oily bohunk.

Married? Married.

Married? Yeah. Married.

Married?

Married! Geez.

Are you going to be all right, sweetie?

It's going to be a piece of cake, Bren.

Um, Ginny, I'm really happy for you.

I'm sorry for being kind of a jerk lately.

That's really lovely, Sam.

I know you'll have a great marriage.

Ginny!

Holy shit! She just had a cramp.

I don't care what she's got! Look at her! Will you be quiet?

We don't want to announce that she has her period!

I guess those guys who thought we had to get married feel pretty stupid, huh, padre?
