Fast Times at Ridgemont High script
Synopsis: Stacy Hamilton (Jennifer Jason Leigh) is a pretty, but inexperienced, teen interested in dating. Given advice by her uninhibited friend, Linda Barrett (Phoebe Cates), Stacy gets trapped in a love triangle with nice guy Mark Ratner (Brian Backer) and his more assured buddy Mike Damone (Robert Romanus). Meanwhile, Stacy's classmate Jeff Spicoli (Sean Penn), who lives for surfing and being stoned, faces off against Mr. Hand (Ray Walston), a strict teacher who has no time for the slacker's antics.

DAMONE:

I could be.

JUNIOR HIGH KID #2

What do you want for something in

the first ten rows?

DAMONE:

Twenty bucks apiece.

JUNIOR HIGH KID #1

Those tickets were only twelve

fifty!

DAMONE:

So don't buy 'em.

JUNIOR HIGH KID #2

(to friend)

All the other scalpers are sold

out, Arnold.

Damone reacts indignantly.

DAMONE:

Scalper? You call me a scalper? I

perform a service, my friends. The

service costs money. Now do you

want the tickets or not?

The Kids look at each other.

JUNIOR HIGH KID #1

Are you sure you can't go any

lower.

DAMONE:

These are my special back-to-school

prices.

JUNIOR HIGH KID #2

We'll take 'em.

Damone reaches inside his pants pocket for a wad of

tickets.

EXT. CARL'S JR. - NIGHT

At the other end of the mall is a neon-lit Carl's

Jr. Hamburger Restaurant. If Swenson's was the warm

up, this is the main attraction of the Ridgemont

Mall.

INT. CARL'S JR.

Back-to-school banners hang from the walls. Many

kids are lined up at the counters. In the middle of

the kitchen, directing all the orders, is a

seventeen year old named Brad. He moves

confidently, observing the fryer, checking cup

supply, and giving an affectionate squeeze to a

pretty cashier named Lisa. She lets him kiss her,

but only once.

A teenage Customer shouts to Brad from the front

counter.

CUSTOMER:

Hey Brad! I waited till you came

on! I wanted your fries.

Brad smiles, walks over to the fryer and discards

the fries left from the previous shift. He shouts

to the other employees as he puts in a new batch,

"his" batch.

BRAD:

We need fifteen Superstars, David!

FELLOW EMPLOYEE #1

Okay, Brad!

BRAD:

I'll take care of the fry orders!

Just get me the Superstars!

FELLOW EMPLOYEE #2

Fish sandwiches!

Brad spots three surfers sitting in the dining

area. None of them are wearing shirts.
