"When I stepped out...

"...into the bright sunlight...

"...from the darkness

of the movie house...."

What's going on?

We're early.

What do you want to do?

Nothing legal. Let's get out of here.

-How're you doing, Bill?


Turn around! I've had it!

Here come the hobos.

I ain't got no cash....

Anyone want to buy a windshield wiper?

Give them the money.

What's the movie about?

I don't know.

It's one of those beach movies.

-Did I say you guys can play on my grass?


Then what are you doing here?

Give me those cards, will you?

-You guys ever play " Pick-Up"?



Don't get wise.

I don't like little kids,

I just don't like them.

Get out of here or I'll kill you!

The sky's getting dark. Let's go.

What do you think you're doing?

Cherry, just relax. You're supposed to be

my girlfriend, aren't you?

Don't ever pull anything like that again.

Are you serious?

Who do you think you are?

Don't do this to me.

I'm not going back there.

-I don't even understand.

-They just want to make it complicated.

Hey, baby, you want to see

what's hanging?

You're sure you want to do this?

I came to see a movie

and I'm gonna see a movie!

I'm freezing.

-Why didn't you bring a coat, stupid?

-I forgot.

Some cute redhead.

Are you a real redhead?

Are you real?

How can I find out

if this is your real red hair?

If this is the same red hair

that you have on these eyebrows, too?

Cut it out.

Get your feet off my chair

and shut your trap!

-Who's gonna make me?

-I'm gonna get a Coke.

Who, your boyfriend?

Leave her alone.

That's the Greaser who just

got out of jail.

Whatever you say.

Better leave us alone or

I'll call the cops.

You got me scared to death.

What am I gonna do, Pony?

This girl is making me shake.

Why don't you be nice and leave us alone?

I'm never nice.

Can I interest you in

a Coca-Cola or a Up?

Get lost, hood!

I'm sorry.

I didn't know you had this problem

of yelling in my face.

All right, I'll go.
