Just One of the Guys

Synopsis: Terry Griffith has got it all -- looks, popularity, the perfect college boyfriend, and an article that's a shoo-in to win her a summer internship at the local newspaper... or so she thinks. When Terry's journalism teacher passes her article up in favor of a couple of pieces written by boys, Terry is convinced that sexism is to blame. Determined to win the internship at any cost, Terry goes undercover at a rival high school to resubmit her article... as a boy. But Terry gets more than she bargained for when she finds herself fending off a bully and the advances of an oversexed female admirer, and falling for her new pal Rick.

- Terry?

- Denise, why aren't you in Science?

They're showing a filmstrip,

everyone left. I have to talk to you.

- I'm really into this article.

- I know, but I need your advice...

...and you are my best friend,

and I tried to deal with it myself...

...and I'm really stressed out!

Three guys wanna take me out,

I'm not too thrilled by any of them...

...but think I should go in case I don't

have a real boyfriend by the prom.

- Okay, who are the guys?

- If I give you names, you cannot laugh.

I know, you have

the perfect college boyfriend.

- You think Kevin's perfect?

- He's a god, okay?

Can we talk about me now?

Where was I?

Bruce Shulman, Edward Zink

and Roger Gibbler.

- This is serious.

- I know.

All right, on a scale of lame to cute

who rates the least low?

They're all lame.

Put Roger in a rent-a-tux,

he might move up to semi-lame.

Okay, forget looks,

who's got the hottest car?

A Pinto, dad's Skylark

and a Schwinn.

Looks like you're gonna have

to skip the prom.

Hey. Hey, everybody.

Listen up! Hey.

A lot of you've been giving me

grief about this Sun-Tribune...

...journalism competition.

Well, I finally got

all of your submissions read.

Now, during my planning period...

...I picked the best two,

and then from those...

...and from those submitted by

your pals over at Sturgis-Wilder.

Thank you.

The Trib will pick one and award

somebody a summer internship.


I'll post the names of the winners in

the trophy case after I finish my lunch.

Tuna salad on whole wheat.

A summer job at the Sun-Tribune,

think about it.

I'll think about that, you think about me

at the prom with a lizard.

- I think you're exaggerating.

- Hi, Denise!

Are you busy Saturday night?


Mr. Raymaker...

...Mr. Vino, the driver's ed. Teacher,

just ran over a dog.

Should I take a photographer?


What's up, Terry?

- How's it going, Terry?

- Hi, guys.

Hi, guys.

Bye, guys.

- Am I invisible?

- They were in a hurry.

You are so hot.

Buddy, I just ate.

- Thanks for stopping by, Bud.

- Anytime, sis.

Our parents are gone for two weeks.

Know what that means?

Their king-size bed is empty.

Well, what do you think?

I think if you and I were

the last man and woman on Earth...

...the human race would die out.

You want time to think it over.

I understand.

I have two words for you,

slumber party.

We'll invite every girl you know:

Tall, short, loose, easy.

I'll be the bartender,

they can use my bedroom...

...they can use my body.

- I wanna help.

- You wanna molest my friends.

- Forget it.

- Why?

You'll have a party, and I'll...

- Oh, God.

- Does he do this at the dinner table?

Don't get me wrong,

it's not like I've never had sex before.

I've had lots of sex. It's just that now

I'd like to try it with a partner.

We really have to get back

to school.

Yes, we must get back.

Wanna make sure

my article's in the trophy case.

Yes, we really must get going.

You have to get going?

I'm 15 years old.

In two years, I reach the peak

of my sexual powers.

The clock is ticking,

I have to get jamming.

Can't you hear

what you're saying?

- Aren't you a little embarrassed?

- Nope, I'm horny.

Horny will kick embarrassment's ass

every time.

Budster, listen to me.

Don't you want your first time

to be with someone you love?

I guarantee you, I'll be in love.

There's Lisa Macadoo,

I hear she'll do anything with anybody.

She looks pretty cheap to me.

Me too.

I am so excited. You know this job

means, like, everything in life to me.

I know.

Work in the sports section.

That way we can interview
