l'm gonna make me some Phat Farms.

-No, l mean, buy some.

-Don't come down this hallway again!

No, man. No, man. We can't be having that.

lt sounded great.

After you win, we should drop

this in the Galaxie.

lf l win.

No offense, but this baby's going with me.

Keep it in my dorm room.

Until l get a car.

No "if." When you win, man.

l sure hope l win.

lt'd be a nice change.

Tired of people calling us losers.

-Who says we're losers?

-What's the matter with you?

Being depressed and cynical is my job.


...we're about to graduate soon.

We never go on dates.

Never go to any dances.

We have no memories.

l mean, we're settling.

And they're not.

Clarence! Dinner's ready!

Can you turn off that music, please?

Turn off the music like you been

turning off your loving.

Alvin, honey, turn that game off.

Come on, time to eat.

Aretha, come on, honey, time to eat.

Let's go.

Gracious God.


-...Alvin, got a date tonight?

-Dad, you're in denial.

Shut up, you Bride of Chucky-looking


That's not even funny, stupid.

Well, Alvin, what do you have

planned for tonight, boy?

l'm gonna do some work on the computer.

All the schematics have to be

coded in HTML for the GM website.

Then me and the guys

will bust out some Xbox.

See that? Your son's a healthy,

heterosexual dork.

-Shut up, Lil' Kim in training!

-Both of you, hush now.

Why you always blaming me?

Go straight to the auto yard

when you get that part.

l don't like you walking

with that much cash.

-Why not? How much is it?

-$ 1500.

$ 1500?

My boy got $ 1500

cleaning swimming pools?
