Here on Earth

Synopsis: The lives of three young people - a rich student, a girl from the "wrong side of the tracks" and her boyfriend - unexpectedly intersect during one fateful summer in the romantic drama "Here on Earth." Kelley Morse (Chris Klein), who is cocky and brash, normally would never have crossed paths with the residents of a small town near his posh private school. But when he takes his shiny new Mercedes out for a drive, he locks horns with some of the locals, including Jasper (Josh Hartnett). As Jasper's willful girlfriend Samantha (Leelee Sobieski) looks on, Kelley and Jasper engage in a dangerous car race that turns disastrous, leaving a popular diner owned by Samantha's mother in ruins. Kelley and Jasper are sentenced to a creatively ironic but fitting punishment: They must help rebuild the diner. Not only does this ruin Kelley's summer plans, he also must board at the home of his rival, Jasper. Kelley begins to fulfill his "sentence," but refuses to have anything to do with Jasper and his

Baby's black balloon makes her fly

I almost fell into a hole in your life

- Tuck that shirt in, son.

Yes, sir.

And you weren't thinking about tomorrow

'Cause you were the same as me

With all your needs

A thousand other boys could never reach you

How could I have been the one

I saw the world spin beneath you

And scatter like ice from the spoon

There was your home

Comin'down the world turned over

A dangerous fall without you there

I go on as you get colder

Or are you someone who's there

You know the lies they always told you

The only love you never dreamed

Was of things they never showed you

That swallowed the light from the sun

Inside your world

- Oh, somebody's lost.


I'm comin'down to a world turned over

A dangerous fall without you there

As I go on I will lead you homeward

All because all

I'll become

You became to me

[Steve ]:
Sweet ride.

Who scored this?

- Probably some spoiled-ass mother...

- Shiverson!

- [Steve ]:
Look at that chrome on that thing, man.

- [Boy #2] Very nice.

[Shiverson ]:
It's, uh, a very nice gift.

I'm sure you're disappointed.

Why, 'cause my father can't come to graduation?

He's in London, in the middle of a deal

that's gonna double our stock price.

I don't need him to jeopardize

that for some bullshit graduation ceremony.

Sorry, sir.

The graduation ceremony is not bull.

Certainly not when you're valedictorian.

With all due respect, sir,

I didn't spend four years here...

just so I could give a "go get 'em" speech

to a bunch of whining children.


you know the rule about cars on campus.

So I'll keep it in the motor pool until after Sunday's ceremony,

and then it's all yours.

So, uh, if that's it...

My sister's boyfriend's got one. It's lickety, bro.

It's like a G-4 in a tail wind.

I can have sex with a car like that.

Just don't burn your wood drill on the tailpipe.

No, I mean I could have sex with a woman

if I had a car like that.

Steve, you couldn't have sex with a woman

if you gave her a car like that.

So he wouldn't even let you take it out for a quick spin?

A little shakedown cruise?

I don't need Shiverson's permission

to take my own car out.

Valet key.

It was on his desk.

I've never been here before

Didn't know where to go Never met you before

I've never been to your home

- [Tires Squealing]

[Music Continues]

- [Whooping]

You can do all the things that you learn to do

All around on the ground Pick a part that's new

You can do all the things that you like to do

All around, upside down

[Everyone Chattering]

- I swear I'm bein' blackmailed into this.

- Ha. Not true.

Somebody else better be up there

takin' the knife after me.

Just do it already.

- [Tapping On Table]

[Jennifer ]:
- Can I ask you a really big favor?

I have a date tonight.

- It's my graduation night.

- I know.

I'm sorry. I forgot that I was closing. I would ask Mom,

but she's baby-sitting Patty.

Please, Sam? Finish my shift for me. I promise you

I will owe you so big-time.

You already owe me your firstborn.

Oh, well, you can have her.

She likes you better anyway.

- Your turn, sucker.

- So, do I carve it up?

I have to do my sister a giant favor that

she'd never do for me.

Oh, come on. I do you favors.

She hasn't had a date in like a year.

All right.

Look, what are we doin', Kelley?

- You guys hungry?

- What, do you have a death wish?

- The Putties hate our guts.

- [Steve]:
Can we just leave?


Let's eat.

What the hell's he doing in?

So, what'll it be?

Uh, what's good here?

Besides the help.


Can I take your order?
