She was definitely a turnoff,|too overt.

Look at her...

Obviously, big problems.

Most girls|don't fly through the air...

with their skirt|around their waist.

Supergirl at least had|the decency to wear tights...

not that I read comics.

I'm more the politically,|environmentally correct...

feminist, poetry-reading type.

You know...


I wonder if she posed|for that painting.

Great perm.

Blond hair...

obvious bleach job.

Too bad it's six months old.

I don't know how she does it.

I get airsick on a seesaw.

I guess she's sort of beautiful.

I don't know. Those lips.

Lips are supposed|to be a perfect reflection...

of another part|of a woman's anatomy.

Not that I'm a lesbian.

Well, maybe I am.

No, definitely not.

I told my mother I was,|just for shock value.

She said, "Fine, just as long|as you don't smoke. "

Which, of course,|is my main joy in life.

Probably oral compensation.

I don't think I was breast-fed.

I can't imagine|where she came from.

None of the other kids|at my school are that scangie.

I really wish|we could be friends.

A dog got hit! Come on!

Someone should just kill it.

It's still breathing.

Oh, God.

You kids pipe down!

Principal's office. Please hold.

Take a seat, ma'am.

It's a stick-on.


I like the ivy.

The cross makes me think|of death, but the ivy is life.

Sort of the tragic|and the hopeful, you know?

What did you do to your hair?

It's Egyptian.


What are you busted for?

I got to keep|a certain grade-point average.

I'm slipping in biology.

You're one of those|scholarship kids.

You make it sound|like Jerry's Kids.

It's not a disease.


Did it hurt?

No. They used a gun.|It was really Quick.

But you've got this wire|running through your nose.

It feels like a booger.

Who's the old dude who picks|you up in the pimpmobile?

It's my dad.

He's having a midlife crisis.

My name's Sylvie Cooper.

What did they nail you for?

I phoned in a bomb threat|to KTVM.

You know that lame guy|who does the editorials?

He said that teenagers|are too hormonally imbalanced...

to have driver's licenses.

He said the age should be raised|to twenty-one.

How did they know it was you?

Wait a sec.

I've seen your dad.|He is that guy...

that jerk on TV who does|those tweaked editorials.

You phoned in a bomb threat|to your own father?

That's great.

No, I mean it.

I'm gonna break this|to you real slow.

Your dad's an asshole.

I ought to slap you good.

You can't put two hundred people|out on a sidewalk...

just because you|don't like an editorial!

They're trying to get rid of me.|Whose side are you on?

Sylvie, you hurt me.

I didn't mean to.

I'm sorry, Dad.

No more than me.


No more than I.

You're grounded.

You rich fuckhead!

I worked for it!

It's nice and cool in here.

I missed my ride.

Could you take me|to Olympic and Fairfax?

Just a sec.

She's my best friend.

Why didn't you think|of that before?

Come on.|Just this once, please?

Then I'll be grounded forever.

What's her name?



Good Lord.

Get in.

I get carsick.|Do you mind if I sit in front?



Your name is Ivy.

Something wrong with your mouth?

TMJ. It's stress-related.

It gives you terrible headaches,|makes your jaw stiff.

Almost killed Burt Reynolds.

Do you have to buy condoms, too?

No, I've got to get a spermicide|with Nonoxynol-Nine in it.


It's a school project.|This HIV-positive guy...

talked about not shooting up|and using condoms.

It's not like we're supposed|to screw around or anything.

We're supposed to learn|to not be embarrassed.

Don't worry. We turn|everything in at the end.
