Terry: Hey, what do you say, Curt? Last night in town - you guys gonna have a little bash before you leave?
Steve: The Moose have been looking for you all day.
[hands check to Curt]
Steve: They got worried - thought you were trying to avoid them or something.
Terry: What is it? What do ya got?
Curt: Oh, great.
Terry: That's $2000 man! $2000!
Steve: Mr. Jennings gave it to me to give to you. He says he's sorry it's so late, but it's the first scholarship the Moose Lodge has given out. And he, uh, says they're all very proud of you back at the lodge.
Curt: Cute. Why don't you hold it for me for awhile?
Steve: Hey, I don't want it. Take it - it's yours.
Terry: I'll take it!

Curt: I don't think I'm gonna be going tomorrow.
Steve: You chicken fink... After all we went through to get accepted? We're finally getting out of this turkey town and now you want to crawl back into your cell - right? You wanna end up like John? You just can't stay seventeen forever.

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.
