I told you I don't want that rabid beast in the house.

I keep Mac outside.

I am in earnest, young man.

That cat is so disgusting.

That's enough, Gloria.

- Where are you going?

- I'm going to study.

If you need any help...

Hey, Chad! What's that kid's...? Chuck! Have you seen Gloria?

Er, yeah. She went off with some guy in a Mustang.

What guy?

I don't know.

Who's the guy?

I dunno. Just...some guy.


Just now.

Chuck! Wait up!


Chuck, I said wait up!

What are you, my shadow?

Don't compensate by using me as an emotional punching bag.

You're too young to talk like that.

Gloria's right. You'll never pass it on your own.

- Shut up!

- Why don't you let me tutor you?

- You're ten years old!

- So? You know I'm smart enough.

You're a genius. A fender-face genius!

And you're a jerk! I hope you fail and have to live with us forever!

What are you gonna do, ask Gloria for help?

Don't be such a boy!

Hey, Norstadt!

You're still a virgin!

Catching up on a little reading?

School's over, you know, wing-nut.

Thanks for the newsflash, brillo-head.

Shut up!

What's goin' on, guys?

Pearson's got his old man's boat.

- Where are you gonna swim?

- Freak beach. You want in?

- You up to it?

- Let's go.

- Sure.

- What are you waitin' for?

- Come on.

Can I come?

No flat chicks allowed!

Shut up, you sexist pig!

- Whoa, bra-burner!

- Trainer bra-burner!

The only bra you'll ever see is your momma's!

What a stupid world.

We could divide all chickdom into Ginger and Mary-Anne...

but why not let visitors onto this island paradise?

Guest stars. Top of the list, Agent 99.

- Agent 99 sucks.

- Bewitched would be good.

- Bewitched is married.

- So?

- He'd probably do it with Mrs Howell.
