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.

BRAD:

Hey you guys! You had shirts on

when you came in here.

ANGLE ON THE MAIN SURFER

a bleary kid sitting at the head of the table. He

runs a hand through his long, stringy blond hair.

After a time, he speaks.

SPICOLI:

Something happened to them, mon.

BRAD:

Come on, Spicoli. Why don't you

just put your shirts back on? See

the sign?

ANGLE ON HANDWRITTEN SIGN IN WINDOW

that reads:
"No Shirts, No Shoes, No Dice"

INT. CARL'S JR.

A store manager, Dennis Taylor, bustles up to Brad.

DENNIS:

Any problems?

BRAD:

No, just a couple of surfers with

no shirts on. I took care of it,

Dennis.

ANGLE ON SURFERS

grumbling, putting shirts back on. It pains them.

Dennis heads back to his office when he sees

something in the trash bin.

DENNIS:

Did you throw away those fries,

Hamilton?

BRAD:

They were left over from the last

shift.

DENNIS:

Those were perfectly good fries,

Hamilton.

(glares at Brad)

Perfectly good.

BRAD:

But they weren't mine.

Brad laughs, goes back to work.

INT. MALL - LATE NIGHT

It is closed and only a few janitors remain. Stacy

and Linda walk through the large empty mall.

STACY:

He gave me his card.

(lovingly)

'Ron Johnson, Audio Consultant.'

LINDA:

(amused)

Should we buy a frame for that?

STACY:

Come on, Linda, I haven't had a

boyfriend all summer. You promised

when I started working at the mall

that my life would change... Do you

think he'll call this week?

LINDA:

Listen, Stace, you want to know

about guys? I'll tell you. They're

mostly chicken. Before I met Doug I

chased after every guy I thought

was cute. I thought if I gave out a

vibe they'd get the message and

call me up. Well, guess what? They

don't call.

STACY:

So what did you do?
