Eight Days a Week

Synopsis: Peter loves his next door neighbour Erica and, on the advice of his grandfather, decides to camp out on her front lawn for the entire summer, or until she agrees to go out with him. His father is none too happy about the idea and refuses to let his son back in the house, even to get a change of clothes. Peter's friend, Matt, thinks Peter should give up on women (like he has) and just have sex with fruit, and have a total devotion to masterbation.

I wanna be...

...just friends.

It's just a flesh wound, my friend.

It will not kill you.

Get back up and fight.

I'm not gonna give up so easily.

But, Peter...

I was rudely interrupted

by Erica's boyfriend, Nick.

He's what I call a "gaping a**hole. "

You know, the type of guy that's

going to college on a football scholarship.

But what bothers me most

is he's one of those macho d*cks...

...who's always grabbing his crotch

and adjusting his balls.

I mean, what's the deal?

He acts like he's a guard

at the Tower of London.

He's gotta check every 10 seconds

to see if the crown jewels are still there.

And how come every a**hole I know

has to make that noise?

You can hear a symphony of those

in any boys' locker room.

Is it like a lion roaring?

The a**hole who can hawk

a loogie the loudest...

...is the leader of the herd?

Needless to say, Nick has been

my nemesis since I was 5.

- I forbid you to go out dressed like that.

- Dad.

No self-respecting Christian girl

would be seen in public in a...

Just get in the house.

Get in the house.

Erica. Erica. Erica!

Erica looked more doable than

Barbara Feldon in Get Smart.

Erica! Get your...

She kissed Nick so hard, I'm sure they

could've swallowed each others uvulas.

Erica, if you...

What the hell's his story?

She then proceeded to tell Nick

what I was up to.

And if things weren't hard enough,

I encountered more unexpected problems.

Well, our prayers

have been answered.

I have been asking God

to send someone to take her away...

...from that heathen boyfriend, Nick.

- You're a miracle.

- Yes.

Erica's dad can never

have a conversation...

...without quoting some guy named Zig

Ziglar, a Christian motivational speaker.

Frankly, I'd never be caught dead

quoting some guy named Zig.
