Why don't you guys swing by

the house later?

We'll throw around the pigskin,

crack a few beers.

- Honey, bring some of your friends.

- You're cute.

I know. I know.


Hey, shithead.

How come we never

threw around the pigskin, huh?

That's 'cause I'm ashamed of you.

What the f*ck, Dad?

I told you never

to call me that.

You never loved me.

Oh my God.

Could you be more of a pussy?

Now you're supposed to be a Dick.

Start acting like one.

Look at yourself.

I mean, come on...

Do some push-ups, get a girlfriend,

get a life.

No more jerking off.

Yeah, well maybe if I had a Dick

teaching me how to be a Dick...

I wouldn't be such a pussy,

all right?

Talk to the hand.

Talk to the hand.

- Real mature. Real mature.

- Talk to the hand.

- F*ck you, Dad!

- Hey...

- Cheesy-looking motherfucker.

- The balls...

You know, Jonny's still

single and available.

Dad, I'm married.

Yeah, well, it's never too late

for an upgrade.

Quiet. Quiet!

It is with pride

to introduce to you...

...the cornerstone

of this school...

Assistant Principal Becky Apple.

Look at those!

As seniors on

the fast track to graduation...

...a ritual is often performed.

I am of course

talking about prom.


I love you!

Prom is the be-all, end-all

of your time here.

On that note, I'd like to hand you over

to the prom chair, Hilary Weiss.



Totally. I want to bite

your ass!

Thank you, Miss Apple.

Thank you, students.

- Boy:
Fucking suck!

- Without your hard work...

...and dedication, our prom

would not be possible.

You guys are so awesome!

- Boy:

- Boy #2:
Your pussy stinks!

And on a more serious note...

...when prom comes,

all of you need to vote for me...

Hilary Weiss.

I mean, I'm the prettiest girl
