1976.‚ The Bicentennial.
Led Zeppelin. Deep Purple. Alice Cooper.‚ Aerosmith (before they became grandparents...)
Although I went to high school in rural Kansas, I have a ridiculous sense of nostalgia when I watch this movie.‚ The hazing of the incoming freshmen that was more fun than terror.‚ The strange political landscape after Nixon resigned and a post Vietnam society.‚ The part of the country that didn't disco.
And the music.‚ Man, the music.
I'll see you there Wednesday.
Pink: It was vicious. Had some pretty cool seniors though. Like, they'd beat the hell out of you and then get you drunk, that sort of thing.
Shavonne Wright: What the hell are you talking about girl?
Kaye Faulkner: Didn't even think about it did you?
Shavonne Wright: Gilligan's Island?
Kaye Faulkner: It's what is called a male pornographic fantasy.
Shavonne Wright: [laughs] Oh my haha
Kaye Faulkner: Think about it! You're basically alone on a deserted island with 2 readily available women. One, a seductive sex goddess type. The other... a healthy girl-next-door-type with a nice butt. So the men have it all, the Madonna and the whore. Women get nothing! We get a geek, an overweight middle-age guy, and a nerdy scientific type.
Jodi: [interrupts] The professor... is sexy.
Wooderson: The older you get, the more rules they are going to try and get you to follow. You just gotta keep on livin', man. L-I-V-I-N.
