Members of the faculty, parents,

fellow students...

...I'm honored and I'm proud

to be standing here today.

But more than that,

I'm really grateful...

...to all the teachers, friends,

and family members...

...who have supported and

helped me over the years.

To them I pledge

that I'll do my best...

...to justify the faith

that they've placed in me.

It's Bunny. Come on.

I wanna say...

...that in the four years we've been here,

we've seen great changes in our society.

Changes in its cultural values...

...economic priorities

and geopolitical posturing.

- All right.

I wanna say...

...that we've seen great changes

in our attitude towards race, sex...

...the environment,

our justice system...

Did you pop that vending machine

over on Fremont?

- So what?

- So that's my street.

And what you take from my street

belongs to me. Hand it over.

Ah! Shit!

Bunny.

Get her, man!

- Out of here.

- Yeah.

What the hell is wrong?

- I'm trying! I'm trying!

Get off my van, you scumbag.

- Holy shit.

Crazy mother.

I wanna say,

in the four years we've been here...

...we've seen great changes

in our society.

I wanna say these things, members

of the faculty, parents, former students.

- Frankie.

But, I can't. I can't...

You still going to that job at the beach?

...because the world

isn't much different.

- Frankie, I want to go.

As we leave today...

...to become part of that world,

we carry with us the hopes...

...and dreams of tomorrow.

- Oh, Frankie.

And perhaps we, in our turn,

can make a difference...

...because it seems to me,

we have the opportunity.

See, we can either get out there,

and we can make the kind of noise...

...that's gonna wake this world

from its stagnant slumber.

Or we can bloat ourselves,

like those who have gone before us...

...on the synthetic pap

sucked from the techno-tit...

...of those who will lead us

to their tyrannical bullshit...

...our apathetic asses

sometimes deserve.

Yeah.

What the hell?

- Billy's throwing offbeats.

- I like offbeats.

- Don't listen to what she's playing.

- How?

- She's jacked to the ceiling.

- I got a right to hear myself.

How long are we gonna

stay in this steam bucket anyway?

- My hair is beginning to frizz.

- Hey, guys, this is our last rehearsal.

Let's not blow it, okay?

Where the hell is Angie?

- Oh, jeez, I forgot to tell you. She quit.

- What do you mean, she quit?

I don't know. She said something about

rock 'n' roll being the devil's music...

...and people who play it

work for the devil and shit like that.

- Perceptive girl.

- That's it, man. The audition's off.

Oh, come on, Jennie. We gonna spend

another boiling summer...

...playing dives

in this dirtbag neighborhood?

No, we finally got a chance

to do something with a little class.

- I say we do it.

- Daryle, we've got nobody on keyboards.

Our van's in the goddamn river.

- But we can get over Angie.

- Yeah.

- I'll take care of the transportation.

- Yeah.

- How?

- Don't worry about it. I got it covered.

- Well, let's vote on it.

- Aye.

You guys.

All right, let's do it again.

Are you coming?

Would you come on?

What?

- The what-do-you-call-it.

- Give me the what-do-you-call-it.

- Oh, yeah.

Shh!

Would you stop? Shh.

- I'll crack your head open.

- Sorry.

What am I looking for again? I forgot.

- Hey. What are you trying to do?

Oh, Bunny. This is so romantic.

Bunny.

I swear, I'm such a fool for love.

Oh, Bunny.

We could be here all day.

Oh, Bunny. Oh, Bunny. Oh, Bunny.

Bunny! Oh, goddamn it, Bunny.

Not again.

- So I was wrong.

Just give me my shoe.
