Goofs

Every time Sue is hurrying from swimming class to math class, she stops at her locker to get one book, presumably her math book. But when she finally realizes that she doesn't have time to stop at her locker, she suddenly feels the need to carry all of her books to and from swimming class. Since it is only this one class she has trouble making on time, she should still only need the one book. See more »

Quotes

Brick Heck: It's my teacher Mr. Wilkerson. He's a man. I like women. I like their bosoms.
Mike Heck: We all do, Brick, but right now you're in a bosomless situation. You gotta make the best of it.
Brick Heck: But when he asks you a question, he throws the answer ball. If I have to catch a ball, it's gonna be a long year.
