It's gonna be so perfect.|We're here for a week,

and there's no one|to bother us.

Who's up for a dip?

We're- they're-

Yeah. Safe sex.

- Eh, Paul?|- Yeah?

Have fun.

It's kind of sweet,|you know?

They seem pretty in love.

Bert, what the hell is that?

Huh? I'm gonna go shoot|some squirrels.

Why would you want|to kill squirrels?

- 'Cause they're gay.|- Don't be a fucking retard.

Kidding. I don't care if|they're gay or straight.

- I'll kill them either way.|- Will you be careful with that?

Would you relax, man?|It's a fucking BB gun. Relax.


So, Karen...

how long have we|known each other?

Seventh grade, right?


I was thinking, we've known|each other for so long,

and even though we-

That's hot!

And, even though we've|always been good friends,

we never actually-

I've always thought|you were really cool.

Hey, race you to the raft.

La la la la la|la la la la

La la la la la|la la la la la la...


Oh my God!

La la la la la|la la la la la la...

Oh, feels fucking great!

- You like that?|- Yeah!

I'm sorry.|Oh yeah!

So you know Ken Webb?


Short, greasy Ken.

The guy with the CDs, right?


He tried to kiss me.

- He did?|- Yeah.

Two days ago.

This guy I've known|for 12 years,

he's a family friend.

He puts his hands|on my face,

full-on tongue!|It was so gross!

Why, was it gross because|you've known him for so long or...

'cause he's gross?

No, it was definitely him.

I don't know. When you've known|someone a long time,

you just want to kiss them just|to see if they're a good kisser.

There's nothing wrong|with that, right?


- Where are you going?|- What's it look like?

- I thought we were kissing.|- Yeah, we were.


so what, you like me now?|Is this like a date?

Don't be gay.

Come back, Mr. Woodchuck.
