Revenge of the Nerds

Synopsis: When lovable nerds Gilbert and Lewis embark on their freshman year at Adams College, little do they realize the dangers that await them. They are beset by taunting from the jocks of Alpha Beta fraternity, which only worsens when the jocks accidentally burn down their house and toss the freshmen out of the freshmen dorm. To make matters more problematic, Lewis develops a crush on pretty Betty Childs, popular sorority sister and quarterback's girlfriend. Joined by the aptly named Booger and the violin-playing Poindexter, the nerds soon realize they must form their own fraternity in self-defense. Soon the tables are turned as the nerds employ high-tech warfare against the jocks.... but can they really succeed and make a difference?

Like Davy Crockett always said,

be sure you're right, then go ahead.


Ogre! Ogre! Ogre! Ogre!

Anyway, college is a

whole new ball game.


People judge you different

than they did in high school.

- Nerds!

- Ogre! Ogre! Ogre! Ogre!


- Nerds!

- Where are they?

- I think they're talking about us.

- No way.


Nerds! Nerds! Nerds!

Come on, Lewis. Let's go.

Nerds! Nerds! Nerds! Nerds!

Nerds! Nerds! Nerds!



Fill 'er up, baby!

All right!

Mmm, Stan.

Okay, everybody, listen up!

It's time for stair diving!

Well, Gilbert, here's our new home.

Can't believe we finally made it.

Lewis, if you don't want the bed

by the window, I'll take it.

- You got it.

- Thanks.


You know, this is

really a great room.

- Yup.

- Definite possibilities.

Do you think maybe they'd let us put in a

little refrigerator for snacks and things?

Are you kidding, Gilbert? We can put a

fridge and a microwave right there.

That'd be a good place for the

entertainment center, too.


And that's just the beginning.

We're gonna have the best

dorm room on campus.

I don't know about the best, Lewis.

It'll certainly be the messiest.

Relax, Gilbert. Remember,

we got it covered.

This robot will be

better than a maid.

- It'll help with the women too.

- Women?

Yeah. Let's say one of us

is up here with a woman?

This'll be our early warning device,

so we don't walk in on each other.

Wait a minute. We're allowed to

have girls in our dorm room?

Not girls, Gil. Women.

- We're college men now.

- Isn't college great?

It's gonna be a great year.

Come on, Betty.

Show me what you got.

- Gable, check this out.

- What is it?

- It is outrageous, man.

- What is it?

Just try it!


Are you okay?

- Jesus, Burke, what is this?
