How may I help you?

Not too

many people know this,

but 88% of our congressmen

and senators

were all in their college

debate teams.

You want to go into politics?

Well, actually,

it's my intention

to become the President

of the United States one day.

But I don't tell

too many people about that.

Of course not.

-So you here

on scholarship, too?

-You got it.

-What for?


You're Tomanski?

You're supposed

to be brilliant.


Look, uh, I'm sorry about...

I feel really stupid.

Hey, boss!

My name's Tucker.

Nice guy.

It's gonna be fun.



Who's that? Who's he?

Oh, boy, uh...

Um, I'm your roommate,

but I can leave

and come back later.

No, it's cool. Come on in.

Come on, Gar.

I was almost there.

What's one last orgasm in your

life on me?

Next to the threat of war

in the Middle East,

-how much does

that really matter?


Well, can't we go back

to my room and finish?

You have to

finish by yourself.

-I have to meet

my new roommate.


Hey, uh, Gar...

How about I get Tasha

and come back?

Goodbye, Mia.




That, uh...

That going all the time?

Welcome to Kenmont.

Tucker Muldowney.

Pleased to meet you.

-Garson McKellar.


How do you possibly find time

to study in this place?

Coach Nichols says

you're terrific.

I've been trying to figure out

if he set us up as roommates

for your sake or mine.

Are you kidding?

You're the best.

You know, I have studied

all your big debates on video.

And for a long time,

I copied your style

right down to a gnat's ass.

What kind of style

do you have now?

Well, I'm kind of working

on my own thing.

It's lots of home-spun candor,

my best Southern drawl,
