Here on Earth

Synopsis: The lives of three young people - a rich student, a girl from the "wrong side of the tracks" and her boyfriend - unexpectedly intersect during one fateful summer in the romantic drama "Here on Earth." Kelley Morse (Chris Klein), who is cocky and brash, normally would never have crossed paths with the residents of a small town near his posh private school. But when he takes his shiny new Mercedes out for a drive, he locks horns with some of the locals, including Jasper (Josh Hartnett). As Jasper's willful girlfriend Samantha (Leelee Sobieski) looks on, Kelley and Jasper engage in a dangerous car race that turns disastrous, leaving a popular diner owned by Samantha's mother in ruins. Kelley and Jasper are sentenced to a creatively ironic but fitting punishment: They must help rebuild the diner. Not only does this ruin Kelley's summer plans, he also must board at the home of his rival, Jasper. Kelley begins to fulfill his "sentence," but refuses to have anything to do with Jasper and his

Do you really make

your own ice cream?

With our very own hands.

How does one actually

make ice cream?


It's a secret family recipe.

- You won't even tell me?

- Not even you.

- I bet I can get it out of you.

- Better men have tried.


They don't look like better men to me.

Three vanilla shakes will be fine.

Let me get that for you, Kelley.

If you check out my ass

when I walk away,

your shake will be in your lap.


- [Steve]:
Let's just get out of here.

Are you trying to get at me, Richie?

- "Richie"?

- Yeah. Richie Rich. That's your name, isn't it?

- Let's just get outta here.

No, he's right.

You can tell a lot from appearances.

Look at him.

I would say that you're poor.

They're not homeless or anything,

Just run of the mill poor.

Judging from your lazy grin,

I'd say you're not too bright either.

- Come on.

Kell, let's just go.

- Take it easy!

- Violence. The first refuge of the poor and...

Hey, cut it out!

- Hey, you want to get yourself hurt, or what?

- Who's gonna hurt me? Him?


: - Get out!

- Kell, let's just go, man.

- Later, Richie.

- You can count on it.

- You're lucky I don't kick you out.

- He was all over you, and l...

You were just picking a fight

while I'm in charge.


I can't even talk to you.


Let's just go, Kelley.

What are we doin' here, man?

- Hey, I wanna know one thing before I go.

- What's that?

What freaks you out more?

Gettin' bailed out by your girlfriend...

or knowing that she was

adding me to her fantasy file?

[Tires Squeal]

What did he say?

I think he just said,

"Come kick my ass."


Hell, that was awesome, man.

You should've seen their faces.

Should've seen your face, man! You were scared shitless.
