Curt: Why is it every girl that comes around here is ugly? Or has a boyfriend? Where is the dazzling beauty I've been searching for all my life?
John: I know what you mean. The pickin's are really gettin' slim. The whole strip is shrinking. Ah, you know, I remember about five years ago, take you a couple of hours and a tank full of gas just to make one circuit. It was really somethin'.


Steve: Maybe, before I leave, we could, ah, agree that, that seeing other people while I'm away can't possibly hurt, you know?... I think it would strengthen our relationship. Then we'd know for sure that we're really in love. Not that there's any doubt.
Laurie: OK. I can't expect you to be a monk or something while you're away.

[After Steve tells Terry he can use his car while he is away at school]
Steve: Only 30 weight Castrol-R...Now I've written the tire pressure and stuff on a pad in the glove...
Terry: I don't know what to say. I'll love and protect this car until death do us part. This is a superfine machine.

John: This better be a joke, 'cause I'm not drivin' you around.
Carol: What's the matter? Am I too ugly? Judy doesn't want me with her and now you don't want me with you. Nobody wants me - even my mother and father hate me. Everybody hates me.

Man: Excuse me, but I think we've had an accident.
Terry: Well, goddamnit, I won't report you this time, but next time just watch it, will ya?

Steve: I thought that since this is our last night together for three months, you might want to dance with me.
Laurie: [pushing him away] Get your cooties off me.
[Steve grabs her]
Laurie: Go ahead, slug me, scar my face. I wouldn't dance with you if you were the last guy left in this gym.
[She starts dancing with Eddie]
Peggy: Joe College strikes out.

Mr. Kroot: All right, Bolander, break that up. You know the rules. You and your girlfriend want to do that, go someplace else, huh?
Steve: Hey, Kroot! Why don't you go kiss a duck?
Mr. Kroot: What did you say?
Steve: I said, go kiss a duck, marblehead.
Mr. Kroot: OK, Bolander, you are suspended. Don't - don't even come in on Monday. You're out, you're out!
Steve: Hey, hey, Kroot. I graduated last semester. Remember?

Mr. Wolfe: Hey, I thought you'd left already.
Curt: No, not yet.
Mr. Wolfe: Boy, do I remember when I went off. Got drunk as hell the night before. Just ...
Curt: Blotto.
Mr. Wolfe: Blotto, exactly. Barfed on the train all next day.
Curt: Cute, very cute. Where'd you go again?
Mr. Wolfe: Middlebury, Vermont.
Curt: On a scholarship?
Mr. Wolfe: On a scholarship.
Curt: Stayed only one semester?
Mr. Wolfe: One semester. After all that, I came back here.
Curt: Why did you come back?
Mr. Wolfe: I don't know. I guess I just wasn't the competitive type.
Curt: I think I may find that I'm not the, uh, competitive type myself...well, I'm not really sure that I'm going.

Carol: Hey, is this what they call "copping a feel"?
John: What? No. N-O. Sheezus.
Carol: What's your name, anyway?
John: My name? Mud, if anyone sees you.

Carol: Oh, rats. I was hoping I might see some friends here.
John: Probably a couple of weeks past their bedtime.
Carol: Oh, wait, there's Dee Dee. I hope she sees me.
John: Oh, shit. Dee Dee!

Carol: You're a regular J.D.
John: File that under uh, C.S. over there.
[hands her the ticket just issued him]
Carol: C.S.? What's that stand for?
John: Chicken shit - that's what it is.
Carol: Oh.
[puts the ticket in the glove compartment which is full of similar tickets]

Bob Falfa: Hey, you know a guy around here with a piss yellow deuce coupe, supposed to be hot stuff?
Terry: You mean John Milner?
[Falfa nods slowly]
Terry: Hey, nobody can beat him, man. He's got the fastest...
Bob Falfa: I ain't nobody, dork. Right?
Terry: Right.
Bob Falfa: Hey, you see this Milner, tell him I'm lookin' for him, huh? Tell him I aim to blow his ass right off the road.

Terry: Hey, did anybody ever tell you that you look just like Connie Stevens? You do, I really mean it... Yeah, I met her once. At a Dick Clark road show... I mean that I'm not just feeding you a line. I really think you do. You look alot like Connie Stevens.
Debbie: I always thought I looked like Sandra Dee.

Debbie: Is that tuck and roll?
Terry: Yeah!
Debbie: Bitchin! I just love the feel of tuck and roll upholstery.
Terry: Yeah? Well, get in and I'll let you feel it... I mean, you know, you can touch it... uh... I'll let you feel the upholstery.

Steve: What's wrong?
Laurie: Go to hell.
