Oh, my God... Freedom.

I feel like my mascara's

running, is my mascara running?

It looks good. Like the

cover of Courtney Love's album.

You just need a crown.

There's a crown.

Hey, Noel, Noel,

can we borrow your crown?

We just need it for like a second.

Wow.

We just got the royal finger.

I never liked her.

What did we just go through?

I mean, what was that, a prom

or a Celine Dion listening party?

Don't shoot this part.

Okay, what is this place? Tell us...

You'll see when we get there.

Okay, we're doing 20 questions.

What is this place?

- Do they have food?

- Not have 20 questions.

What, you

can't just ask a question?

Aren't we just going to the

hotel? I'm very confused.

I just want to

say, "Hey, what's up?" to

all of the future versions of ourselves

watching this right now.

I hope that we all learn to be as

happy and beautiful

as these two right here

'cause they are going to have

the best prom night of any of us.

Hold on, let me get this.

Tonight could've bit ass.

Except it didn't

because we were together.

Don't make me cry. My mascara is

already f*cked up enough as it is.

You look pretty!

Guys, I love our group.

Guys, what are we doing?

Chill out, just live a little.

We're not going to get caught.

This is not legal. This is not legal.

Danielle, you're going to love

that you did this later on.

And Savannah's getting naked.

Oh, no. No, no, no.

No, Danielle.

If we get a rare

disease from this water,

at least we'll all die together.

I'm not leaving

my dress on the wet ground.

It's dry-clean-only

and my mom will kill me.

On the count of Celine Dion.

One, two, Celine Dion!

No, no, no.

You can no longer work

on your taxes from 1998.

Yeah, I cannot amend

your '98 return. No.

Hi, Dad.

No, no, no, I'm not

laughing at your situation.

Yeah. No, there's a strict

statute of limitations.

So sorry, I'm so sorry.

I didn't realize my dad

wanted me to work until 6:00.

I can't believe you're still filling

in for your dad's old sign girl.

Yeah, you know, I'm just

still trying to figure out

what kind of counseling I'm going to do.

Okay, Al, it's show

time. Let's see it already.

The decorator just put the

finishing touches on it yesterday.

After you!

Oh, my God.

- Sorry.

- That's okay.

Whoa!

Oh, my God.

- You have outdone yourself.

This is impressive. I thought you

were gonna have, like, a fish tank.

Look at the nipples on this

guy.

Oh, my God, we're going

to be so popular, Savannah.

That is the VIP section.

We can come any night of the week

and have our own special space.

It is so sexy. I love that we get to

be VIP! Okay, girls, getting ready...

- Let's get this party started.

- My God... No!

Last one, grab your penis.

- Thank you.

Turn them on like this.

I love it.

Hey, no, look, my balls won't light up.

Oh, my God,

that hat is too much.

I mean it truly is the

tiniest hat I've ever seen.

It is, it's like suitable for a mouse.

- You need to wear it to your wedding.

- I can't, I have a veil.

Okay, games, games, games, games.

All right, the way this game works

is you write a caption

for what you think

the woman in this scene

is saying to her husband.

But here is the thing...

Look, look, look.

Look, look. Yes, you

have to make it dirty.

It'll be fun, it'll be

fun, so, all right. Ready?

Set, go.

All right, stop.

Stop, stop, stop, pencils

down. I will go first.

He said he had a package for me.

All right, Danielle, you go.

I love getting mail.

But I spelled it m-a-I-e.

Oh, wow.

It's perfect. All right,

Meg, Meg, Meg, you go.
