Oh, I love your helmet!

I love your cleats!

Ooh, and I love your padding.

That's not padding.

Hey Janie, how about me, I scored once.

I doubt that very much.

Ow, oh, ow, hey, hey hey hey.

Take it easy, easy on

the old crotch there.

One touchdown, one touchdown!

That's all it takes, one lousy touchdown.

Okay, let's get our

fannies in the showers, guys.

Finally got a chance

to beat Simpson High

for the first time in history the school

all because we got Tony!

Yeah, that's right!

Hey fellas, who wants a nice massage?

Here comes old grab-ass again.

Yeah, let's quit it.

Hey uh, hey guys, uh.

Hey Tone, nice game today.

Thank you, oops.

Well uh, almost all used up anyway, sir.

Jeepers, they all run out of here

like I had the plague or something.



Hi there, Mr. Walker!

God bless America.

Tony, Tony.

You're going with your father?

Tony, that's no fun.

Tony, you're a strange boy.

Hi Janie, how about a ride?

Hey, maybe we can!

I know son it hasn't been easy

growing up deprived of some of the things

that other young boys have.

Like what, Dad?

Well, like a mother.

Didn't you notice?

I mean you do remember Mom, don't you?

Oh yeah, she was that nice lady

that used to take me to the

beach and the playground

when I was real little.

No, that was the maid.

Oh, oh, I remember Mom now.

I came into your room

once without knocking

and you were both in bed together.

You screamed at me to get out.

That was the maid.

Oh, whatever happened to that maid, Dad?

Oh, she ran off with my

handkerchiefs and my ties.

I haven't heard from her since.

Whatever happened to Mom?

She ran off with my bank

account and my stock portfolio,

and I haven't heard from her since.

But I'm about to make it up to you, son.

Well Dad it's not as if we

never did anything together.

I mean you let me help you

build your bomb shelter and everything.

Yeah, and they all laughed

at us, didn't they, huh?

But when those Russian

missiles start pouring in,

we'll be the only ones

in town still alive.

Oh, that'll be great.

Chipped beef is good tonight, isn't it?

Oh it's the best it's been this week.

You know it's a good thing

the Central Intelligence

Agency selected me

to represent their interests

in this Romanian caper.

Real spy stuff?


No, we're just picking up some microfilm,

and you know you'll

provide the perfect cover.

Father and son visiting

Romania, tourists, it's perfect.

Yeah, but Dad I have

the big game coming up.

Ah, I don't worry about the big game.

You'll be back in plenty of time for that,

and you'll come back a

hero to your teammates,

but if you wanna let me

and your country down

and back out now, um,

of course no one will

think any less of you.

Oh no Dad, I'm anxious to go, really.

Romania, it's quite a country.

Steep behind the Iron Curtain.

It's steeped in the

superstition of the dark ages.

A country warped by ignorance and fear.

You'll enjoy it.

My home is America.

It's a wonderful country, you'd love it.

It's the bastion of democracy and freedom.

As a matter of fact,

you two lovely ladies, in America,

would be free to walk

the streets at night,

and you certainly would.

Oh, my friend Tony, uh.


Back from the museum early?

Did it close?

No, the museum is still open,

but there's only so much oldness

a guy can take in one day, you know.

I was just explaining

the Monroe Doctrine

to these two nurses.

Oh, huh, huh.

Well, there's a couple of dungeons in town

I haven't covered yet.

Good, this could be a long talk.

Oh, okay.

Well, I guess I sleep in
