Your mother was so happy...

when she found out

she was going to have twins.

She bought matching clothes for you.

Same crib.



Yeah. It'll be good for you

to get away for a while, hmm?

Spend some time with your friends.

- Hmm?

- Yeah.



All right.

No, Mommy, there will be

no shenanigans.

No, we're not drinking.


Yeah, I'll tell him.

- Dude, I don't think you should let Megan see that.

- What?

- Oh, yeah. No, you're right.

- She still taking her makeups in August?

- That's what she told me.

- [Woman] Hey. She's here.

- [Woman #2] Hey,you.

- Hey.

Long time, no see.

Come here.

I'm so glad you're doing this.

Can't blow off Senior Week.

It's tradition, right?

M.T., how ya doin'?

## [Man Singing]


Mark, you wanna pick up the pace a little?

I wanna get there

by the time the sun sets.


## [Continues]


Dude, this is gonna be such a rockin' Senior Week.

I'm so glad you could make it.



This is so cool.

## [Ends]


Hey, you remember this place?

You remember the crazy old woman

who works here?

[Woman #2] Are you kidding?

It's the best part of coming to this store.

Please do not forget toilet paper.

All right?

Last time I had to wipe my ass

with a potato chip bag.

- Mark.

- What, babe? It was barbecue.

- We know. Ugh.

- [Laughs]

[Bell Jingles]

Barbecue sauce-

it has some "G" in it. It burns, man. Bad.

- Stop.

- Okay, fine.

## [Radio:
Rock And Roll]



Psst. Check out the new guy.

- Hi.

- Hi.

I think we're a little bit lost.

You wouldn't happen to know the way

to Nowell Lake from here, would you?

Sure. Just stay on this road

for about another three miles or so.

You'll see the turnoff on the right.

So just look for the sign.

You, uh- Y'all from the city?

Yeah. We come here every summer

for St.John's Eve.

Oh. Summer solstice.

Right on.

- You know about that?

- Oh,yeah.

Cajun, born and bred.

So, what are we reading here?

Oh, that? Ghosts, black magic,

communicatin' with the dead.

Fortean Times.

It's pretty cool stuff.

[Mouths Word]

- You can have it if you want. I'm done with it.

- You sure?

Yeah. I was just about

to throw it away.

Have a great day.

Thanks. Take care.

Megan. Time to go.

- Oh.

- You can read your magazine in the car.

- I'm just gonna go to the bathroom.

- Sure.

You ready?

Everybody's waiting.

- Yeah. Sorry. I was just-

- You okay?

Yeah. Fine.


That guy was so hot.

[Woman #2]

He was cute.

- Mangy, but-

- [Man] What guy?

No, there was just a new guy.

working there behind the counter.

- Ah. So a local hick, huh?

- Mark-

[Mark Laughs]

You know, Mark,

for an alleged heterosexual...

- you have the most moist

collection of music I've ever seen.

Very funny.

Will you stop getting

processed barbecue all over my-

Look out!



Hey. You okay?


[Woman #2]


Yeah. See, this is about the time

that we run out of gas...

- and the men get gang-raped

by a band of the inbred locals.


- [Engine Sputtering]

- What the-

[Engine Dies]

Please tell me

you did not run out of gas.

No, babe. We have half a tank.

I don't-

All right,just don't pump it.

It might be flooded.

[Engine Cranking]

- [Engine Starts]

- [Mark] There we go.

Looks like somebody needs a tune-up.

I just had one done.

It's okay.


All right, someone choose some music.

- Come here.

- I can't even bear to look at that thing anymore.

I forgot how beautiful this place is.

Hey, um, Megan?

- Can I have the keys?

- Sure.

- I call master bedroom.

- Call bullshit!

That's ours!

I've got the keys.



Is everything okay?

Yeah. Sure.

Are you gonna

take the downstairs room?


Beer. How you doin'?

- I'm gonna go help Mark, so-

- All right.



It's Christmas vacation, Sophie.

Lighten up.

Mom's not gonna care.


That's not the point, Megan.

The point is to have a good time,

something you should do for a change.


What's your problem?

I can't do this.

What's wrong with you?


Sophie, you're losing it.


Hey, the twins have finally arrived.

We were starting to think

you guys forgot about us.

- [Laughing, Chattering]

- Hey, Christian.

- You okay?

- I'm fine.

You might wanna see

what's going on with Sophie though.

Hey. We're gonna go for a swim

before it gets dark. You wanna come?

Meg, you know, you can take my room

if it gets too weird for you.

No. It's okay.

I just found this.

When was it taken?

I guess about a year ago.

She and Christian

got in so much trouble for that.

I think she told my mom

she stayed at my Aunt Kathy's.

She was never a good liar.

She loved that stupid hat.

- Come on. Let's go. Let's go swimming.

- Oh.

No. I promised my mom

I'd pack up these things.

Rather do it now so it's not staring me

in the face all weekend.

- Aha!

- [Screams]

[Deep Gurgling]

[Gurgling Continues]


[Door Slams]



[Keys Jingling]

- ## [Soft Rock]

- [Zoe] The correct answer to the question...

"In what fictional

Southern California town...

does The Lost Boys take place," is-

- [Together] Santa Carla.
