[ Man ]

As your principal,

l watched you all start out

here at Lincoln High...

caterpillars in

our cocoon of stability.

Over the last four years,

your chrysalis has hardened.

And now if l listen closely,

l can almost hear

your cocoons opening.

l see before me

monarch butterflies...

ready to take off into

that great adventure...

that l like to call ''life.''

- [ Applauding ]

- And now...

l'm proud to present

your valedictorian...

Rebecca Warner.

[ Applauding, Cheering ]

Rebecca ! Whoo !

Today l would like

to talk about change.

lt's all around us.

Change. lt happens

whether we want it or not.

Change. Are we ready for it ?

l think so.

We are poised

and prepared for the future,

ready to embrace new people,

places and ideas.

[ Grunting, Blowing Raspberry ]

- ln short, we are ready

for the challenge of life.

- [ Snoring ]

- Ladies and gentlemen,

take a good look at us.

- [ Boy ] Wake up !

We are the future.

We are the Lincoln Tigers.

Hear us roar !

Whoo ! We did it !

[ Principal ]

- Rebecca !

- Zack, get up.

-Why don't you let me take the picture ?

-No, no, no, Dad, l'll take it.

- Don't worry about it.

- All right, okay. Do what you want.

- Hold still there.

- Rebecca ! Give me that camera, Walter.

lf we wait much longer,

it will be my graduation.

- Travis, would you please

take our picture ?

- Come on !

- Oh, yeah.

- Mom, where do you want me?

- Now look here, Travis,

you ever work one of these ?

- Come on, Dad !

- Just a minute, please.

- ln my day, all ya did

was push a button.

-ln his day, dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

-Okay, Walter,

- we're ready.

- Look, l'm just tryin'

to get a good one, damn it.

- Mom, it's fine.

- lt will be fine.

- All right, all right,

is everybody ready ?

- Yes !

- All right, everybody say, ''Cheese.''

- Cheese !

[ Walter ] Travis,

did you press that little thing--

California is a long way off

just to go to school.

- Are you sure you don't

wanna reconsider State ?

- [ Rebecca ] No, Dad.

- You know l wanna do this.

- Yeah.

Oh. Rebecca.

l-l'm not sure that l've...

really prepared you for what

you're gonna run into out there.

What l mean is...

the boys are different

than they are here.

They, um, uh--

W-W-What l'm tryin'

to say is that the--

Well, the lifestyle's

a lot faster.

- Are you tryin' to tell me

not to have sex, Dad ?

- Huh ?


l'll be fine.

- You know me.

- [ Chuckles ] Well, it's, uh--

lt's pretty late. Uh, guess

we'll get a little shut-eye, huh ?

- Yeah.

- Okay.

- Good night.

- Good night.

- Travis ?

- What ?

- Slow down.

- Why ?

'Cause l-l want it to be right.

Well, when's it gonna be right ?

You're leaving tomorrow.

You act like it's forever.

Well, l'm not gonna see you

for three months.

What if everything changes ?

Nothing is going to change.

l'll go to school,

you'll work at the co-op...

and we'll see each other

every single vacation.

And when l'm done,

we'll be together.

- Promise ?

- Promise.


l guess l can wait.

Now... where were we ?

That's no way to pack a truck, Junior.

These bags should be back there.

- Oh, come on, Dad.

l know what l'm doin'.

- All right, all right.

But don't come cryin' to me

when my granddaughter's clothes...

- are scattered all

up and down the highway.

- Watch your hands.

- Zack, where's your sister ?

- What ?

l don't know. Maybe she's still

in the barn with-- [ Clearing Throat ]

- [ Connie ] Zack.

- What ?

- [ Walter ] Rebecca ! Let's go !

- Just a minute.

Okay !

Learn a lot, Shortcake !
