(creaking continues)

Looks like it's closed.

Don't be such a wimp.

The guy's right there.

(maniacal laughter)

I told you, Colleen,

if you're gonna pull this crap,

you could have just

stayed at home.

Will you just leave me

alone, you idiot?

- (carnival music playing)

- Well...


Come on already.

(laughter continues)

Two tickets, please.

Round trip or one way?


Go on, get on.

It's not gonna bite you.

(gears hiss)

- (banging)

- (creaking)

(maniacal laughter)

You see? It's all fake,

you little baby.

Don't you feel

stupid now?

(shrieks, laughs)




Look at that devil face.


You're not looking.



it's kind of cool.

- (yells)

- Stop it, jerk!

Oh, poor baby.

Want me to change your diaper?

- (roars)

- (girls scream)

- (gasps)

- (indistinct chanting)

Whoa, look at that.

(player piano playing)


Lmagine if this whole ride

shut down right now.

We would have to find

our way back out on foot.

- (animal howls)

- It might take hours.

Look at that fire,


That's awesome!

You're not looking.

You are such a little girl, Colleen.

You know that?

I'm gonna start calling

you Colleen Crybaby.

I knew I should have left you home,

Colleen Crybaby.

I'm gonna make you get out

and walk this ride all by yourself.

You know what?

(girls screaming)

(maniacal laughter)


(maniacal laughter continues)

All right, you stupid...




(Colleen screams)


(rock music playing)

? She's lying

right next to me...?

Cathy, am I even gonna

need a bathing suit in New Orleans?

I don't think so, Liz. Oh, unless

you're gonna pull your top down

- for "Girls Gone Stupid."

- What, like this? Whoo!

You know you're going to.

You'd love that.

Can you tell me again

why we're going there

and not someplace with palm trees

and umbrella drinks?

Look at it like this:

The money that we're going to save

by enduring this trip

with the boys...

and I do mean "endure"...

will more than make up

for food, fun

and anything else

we might need.

Think of it as business,

not pleasure, Liz.

I'm glad you suggested

we go to New Orleans.

It's retro.

You feel me?

It's like something

our grandparents would have done.

Yeah, well, I was hoping

the female population down there

- skewed younger than that.

- When they were our age,

- you freak show.

- Right.

Anyway, spring break's become

this market-laden excuse

for multinational consumer product

companies to pass out samples of shit,

like deodorant

and condoms.

F*ck! "Final Cut," dude.

I love this book.

What are you doing

reading this?

You gave it to me

for my birthday.

- Oh.

- Take it out of the bag

and put one

of these in instead.

We're going to spring break,

not to the library.

- What is this?

- It's a condom.

And you have to use it

when you're not having sex with her.

You know about her?

You know that Jim's

driving us, right?

Yeah, I know that.

Are you okay with that,

after what happened?

What happened was

I got really drunk

and I hooked up with someone

I shouldn't have hooked up with.

- It happened once, come on.

- You do it every weekend.

- Once.

- Stop, stop.

It's like the measles.

It's out of my system.

- Okay okay.

- Drop it.

You do know how I get

when I get a few drinks in me...

I could basically probably hook up

with anyone.

- The whole school knows how you get.

- Shut up.

Do you realize that

Michael Cimino almost bankrupted

United Artists with "Heaven's Gate"?

It's just such an abuse
