Lucas (1986)
[Lucas shows up to Maggie's house ready to go to the school dance with Cappie and Alise as a double date]
Lucas: So, you ready to go?
Maggie: I don't think we can go, Lucas.
Lucas: Why not?
Maggie: Cappie and Alise broke up today.
Lucas: But aren't they here?
Maggie: Cappie's here, and he's very depressed. Sit down.
[Lucas sits with Maggie outside her front door]
Maggie: She was jealous, or she doesn't like me or something. She said she'd break up with him if he went through with it. She didn't want to go with us, Luke. So, I think we have to call it off.
Lucas: I have my bike. We can still go.
Maggie: He kind of needs someone with him tonight. I don't want to leave him by himself. He had tears in his eyes when he came over tonight. Can you imagine tat big, strong guy crying?
[Cappie walks out of the house and sits between Maggie and Lucas]
Cappie: Hi, Luke. I am sorry, Bud. Am I a drag, or what?
Lucas: Listen. I think you should come to the dance with us. I think it'd cheer you up.
Cappie: Naw. I'd feel like a third wheel. We were thinking of going out for a pizza. Why don't you come with us?
Maggie: Yeah, why don't you?
Lucas: You're going out for pizza.
Cappie: Well, it's just a suggestion.
Lucas: If you're so depressed how come you're eating pizza?
Cappie: Maybe I should just go home.
Lucas: No. Go eat pizza. Don't let me spoil your depression.
[Lucas runs to get his bike as Maggie runs behind him]
Maggie: Are you okay? Where are you going?
Lucas: To the dance.
Maggie: By yourself?
Lucas: Hey, I'm a party animal.
[Lucas gets on his bike and rides away]

[Lucas is called out of football practice by Coach Boyd]
Coach: What the hell are you?
Lucas: Excuse me?
Coach: Who suited you up?
Lucas: Well, I'd like to speak to you about that. This equipment just doesn't fit.
Coach: No, that's not the problem. It's you that don't fit. Now go turn it in.
Lucas: Excuse me. I can run really fast when I concentrate.
Coach: I said turn it in. Now, get off the field.
[yells to the other players]
Coach: All right, everybody inside for chalk talk! Shower up, first. Let's go, go, go, go, go, go!
Lucas: You're making a big mistake. I'll be good at this. I can lower my center of gravity. See? Look.
[Lucas does a few little spins left and right]
Lucas: See? And my size, I gotta run fast. If they catch me, I'm dead.
Coach: Just, listen, little buddy. We got our first game this Saturday against Rockford and I don't have time to dick around with you.
Lucas: Well, I'm afraid... you'll have to, sir... dick around with me. The Supreme Court, by virtue of the sexual discrimination act says, that if anyone tries out for a team sport has to be given the same chance as everyone else. Now, if you wish to cut me based on my performance, that's your right, but I'll take you to court if you try it before.
Coach: What's this shit?
Lucas: I looked it up. My family's in law.
[Lucas walks off the field as Coach Boyd looks at him with his mouth open]

[Lucas tells Maggie how he feels about sports]
Lucas: You know, either you're an athlete, or you're not an athlete. Actually I am, I'm an athlete. I just don't like to get caught up in that stuff, I think it's superficial. You know, football heroes, cheerleaders, and parties. I'd be willing to play football if that other junk didn't go along with it.

Lucas: You can't ever make me quit, EVER!

[Lucas goes to his bike]
Maggie: Where are you going?
Lucas: To the dance.
Maggie: By yourself?
Lucas: Hey, I'm a party animal.

[Lucas runs in to play the first big game for the football team]
Coach: What the hell are you doing?
Lucas: I'm ready to go in. I can run fast. I can win this game.
Coach: Just get out of here, will you?
Lucas: Look, just give me one chance. One play.
Coach: Get out of here, I said. Get off of the field.
Lucas: Look, I'll make you a deal. You have nothing to lose. They're whipping your ass, anyway.
Coach: Listen to me...
Lucas: Put me in, I'll never come back, I swear. Just let me play today. You have nothing to lose, just let me in.
Coach: Hear me good, you pissant, because I'm only going to tell you one more time.
Lucas: Don't you call me that. Don't you call me a pissant, you dumb, fucking jock.
Coach: What'd you say?
Lucas: You heard me, pencil-brain. I mean, who are we kidding here, who is the pissant? The second-rate coach of a third rate team or me?
Coach: What's your name?
Lucas: Lucas.
Coach: I mean your last name!
Lucas: Bly.
Coach: You're right, Bly. I've got nothing to lose by sending you in. Karger out! Bly in!
Lucas: What position?
Coach: Prone.
[Lucas runs into the football field]

[Lucas hides away from Maggie under a bridge]
Maggie: Come on out, Lucas. I know you're in there. I can see your feet.
[joins Lucas under the bridge]
Maggie: Have you been crying?
Lucas: Yeah. So what? I mean, wimps do that. Didn't you know? Just like big, strong guys.
Maggie: What do you want me to do, Lucas?
Lucas: I don't care. Just keep doing what you're doing. Go to bed with him.
Maggie: That's not fair.
Lucas: Yeah, a lot of things aren't fair.
Maggie: Lucas, you and I were just friends.
Lucas: Why?
Maggie: What do you mean, why?
Lucas: I mean, why just friends?
Maggie: Because that's all we were.
Lucas: Yeah, but why?
Maggie: Well, you're 14.
Lucas: Romeo was 14.
Maggie: I don't know, Lucas. There are certain people you like in a certain way, and others you like as a friend. I don't know why. You know about science, do you know why?
Lucas: Yeah. Actually, I do. It's called the process of natural selection. You ever heard of Darwin? The males who demonstrate physical prowess are the most attractive to the females. And by breeding with the strongest males, the females ensure survival of the species.
Maggie: You know how wonderful you are?
Lucas: Yeah, but it doesn't turn you on, does it?
Maggie: I want you to be my friend.
[Lucas tries to kiss Maggie]
Maggie: What are we going to do with you?
Lucas: Go away.
[Lucas begins to yell]
Lucas: Go! Leave! Leave! Go! Go away!
[Maggie leaves Lucas alone]

Bruno: Luke, Luke! Get that ball away and puke! Ben and Luke! I'm going to puke!
Lucas: Let's go...
Ben: Don't let him scare you away!
Lucas: Scare me away?
Ben: Yeah, just tell him to eat shit.

[Lucas disagrees with Maggie on becoming superficial]
Maggie: I think I'm going to do this today.
Lucas: Cheerleading?
Maggie: Well check it out.
Lucas: What for?
Maggie: I might want to do it.
Lucas: What, be a cheerleader?
Maggie: I don't know. Is that all right, Lucas?
[Lucas shrugs his shoulders]
Maggie: Well, the way you were looking at me.
Lucas: Whatever. We can collect tadpoles tomorrow.
Maggie: Well, If I like it, I will be doing it tomorrow, too. They practice everyday.
[Lucas hangs his head]
Maggie: It sounds like fun, Lucas. well, didn't you hear what they said? Away games and buses and stuff.
Lucas: I guess everybody has their own idea of fun. Some people go to football games. Other people do less superficial things.
Maggie: Look, Lucas. Just because you don't approve of something doesn't mean other people don't have a right to enjoy it. Well, you're in the band aren't you?
Lucas: Yeah.
Maggie: So?
Lucas: So?
Maggie: So the band goes to football games.
Lucas: We're totally different.
Maggie: Why?
Lucas: Because the band does not have fun there.
Maggie: Then why do you do it?
Lucas: I don't know.
Maggie: Well, figure it out, and in the meantime don't call people superficial because they just want to have fun. Look, I'm new here. I don't know anybody. Why can't you be helpful and understanding about that?
[Maggie runs off]

Lucas: There is a dance on Friday and if you and Alise could take Maggie and me, it'd be great. See, she has to meet people. She has a strong need for acceptance.

[Lucas walks into the school shower with the other football jocks]
Bruno: Hey, Leukoplakia. They got a jockstrap that can fit you? Hey, maybe one of you guys should stop by sewing class and pick up a thimble, Lucas here needs a jockstrap. Or maybe a thimble would be too big. Hey, anybody got a contact lens? A contact lens with a Band-Aid.
Lucas: Are you referring to the size of my penis?
Bruno: Yeah I am.
Lucas: With a flaccid penis, it's the number of folds that count. And anyway, I don't get semi-erect around other males like some of you fellas do.
Bruno: What'd you say?
Lucas: It's a study done by the University of Illinois. You can tell the fags in a warm shower by who's got the longest dong. Look, yours seems to be growing even now.
Bruno: The hell it is.
Lucas: [Lucas points] It is, look.
Spike: Hey, look. He's getting a hard-on. Don't nobody bend over to pick up the soap.
Bruno: You little shit.
Lucas: Oh. They say physical violence is an expression of sexual feeling.
[Bruno and Spike charge Lucas and carry him with the rest of the football players]

[Lucas and Maggie sit in the movie theater and begin to watch Cappie and Alise kissing in the row behind them]
Maggie: Why do they call you Leukoplakia? Does it mean something?
Lucas: Leukoplakia is cancer of the mouth.
Lucas: [Maggie and Lucas then look in the row behind them] I think they've done it. It's the same with pigeons. You can tell by the way they kiss.
[Maggie continues to stare when Cappie see's her watching]

[Lucas see's Maggie for the first time and begins to watch her play tennis as one of the tennis balls rolls to him]
Maggie: Could you grab that for me?
[Lucas rolls the tennis ball back]
Maggie: Thank you. Do you play tennis?
Lucas: No. Uh-Uh.
Maggie: What's that thing?
Lucas: It's a net, for insects.
Maggie: You collect them?
Lucas: No, to collect them, you have to kill them. I just look at 'em.
Maggie: Oh, that's nice.
[Lucas smiles and nods]
Maggie: Well, thanks.
[Maggie goes back to playing tennis as Lucas hits the play button on his tape player, playing the song Waltz of the Flowers, continuing to watch her]
Lucas: [Maggie see's Lucas still watching as he turns off the tape player] You're very good.
Maggie: Not so much when people are watching me.
Lucas: Are you on the team?
Maggie: No, I just moved here. Is there a team?
Lucas: Yeah, at school.
Maggie: Which school, Park High?
Lucas: Yeah.
Maggie: You go there?
[Lucas nods yes]
Maggie: You look... Younger.
Lucas: Yeah I'm accelerated.
Maggie: Oh, you must be real smart then.
[Locus nods yes again]
Maggie: Well, I'll see you there when it starts.
Lucas: What's your name?
Maggie: Maggie.
Lucas: Hi, I'm Lucas.

[Lucas tells Maggie what he thinks about her name after she gives him a ride home]
Lucas: It's perfect your name's Maggie.
Maggie: Why?
Lucas: Because a Magpie's black and white.
Maggie: Oh.
Lucas: [smiles] Perfect.
Maggie: [laughs] Bye-Bye.
Lucas: Bye.
[Maggie honks her car horn]

[Lucas talks to Maggie inside her car]
Maggie: Well, what's your phone number?
Lucas: Oh, um, it's unlisted. And my parents don't like for me to give it out to people.
Maggie: Oh. Well, then maybe I'll stop by sometime.
Lucas: Um, they don't like people to stop by either. You know, I can visit people, but they just don't like people making a mess of the house.
Maggie: Oh.
Lucas: But hey, I can meet you there.
Maggie: Where?
Lucas: Um, the tennis courts, the ones by the school.
Maggie: When?
Lucas: 3:00.
Maggie: Today!
Lucas: Every day!
Maggie: Ok.
[Maggie laughs as Lucas runs off]

[Lucas talks to Maggie with their backs to each other, while sitting under the stage of a classical music band playing]
Lucas: Maggie.
Maggie: Yeah?
Lucas: Is your name Margaret?
Maggie: Yes.
Lucas: Margaret.
Maggie: Yeah?
Lucas: I'm just saying it.
Maggie: Oh.
Lucas: Did you think we'd be such good friends when we first met?
Maggie: I don't know.
Lucas: What did you think of me?
Maggie: I thought you were interesting.
Lucas: I thought you were beautiful.
Lucas: Do you still?
Maggie: What?
Lucas: Think I'm interesting?
Maggie: Yes.
Lucas: Me, too.
Maggie: Lucas, I think I like classical music.
Maggie: Lucas?
Lucas: Yeah.
Maggie: Is there something wrong?
Maggie: I just wish school would never start.
[Lucas and Maggie stare at each other]

[Lucas sits outside of the school dance when Rena joins him at his side]
Rena: Lucas, is that you? What are you doing?
Lucas: Nothing much.
Rena: You look nice.
Lucas: Thank you.
[Rena sits next to Lucas]
Rena: Drinking beer?
Lucas: Dragonfly Nymph. You ever see one?
[Lucas holds up a beer bottle with a bug inside]
Rena: Oh, it's ugly. Glad it's not bigger than me.
Lucas: It turns into something very beautiful, Rena.
Rena: Is that possible?
Lucas: Yeah, can you imagine that? Turning from something ugly into something beautiful.
Rena: No. Frankly, I can't.
[pause]
Rena: You going to bring it to Carlson?
[Lucas then throws the bottle as it splashes in the water]
Rena: I thought you had a date.
Lucas: Nah.
Rena: Well, are you going in?
[Lucas nods no]
Rena: Why not?
Lucas: Thinking.
Rena: About what?
Lucas: Romeo and Juliet.
Rena: Really? How come?
Lucas: How old were they? Do you know?
Rena: She was 13, and I guess he was about the same. Why?
Lucas: Two different worlds, huh?
Rena: Romeo and Juliet? Yeah.
Lucas: That can be a problem.

[Maggie walks into the hospital room Lucas is in]
Maggie: [Maggie begins to cry] You could have gotten killed.
Lucas: Did we win?
Maggie: No way.
Lucas: Boy. They sure were big.
Maggie: [Maggie laughs] I don't want you ever playing football again.
Lucas: Okay.
Maggie: You.
Lucas: Magpie.
Maggie: Locusts. They're all gone, you know. The Locusts. I was just outside. They aren't making any noise anymore.
Lucas: Not for 17 years.
[Maggie holds Lucas's hand]
Lucas: I'm sorry for doing this.
Maggie: I guess you had to.
Lucas: Yeah.
Maggie: You know, survival of the species and all.
[both smile]
Maggie: What are you thinking?
Lucas: I'm just wondering where we'll be when they come back.
Maggie: Who?
Lucas: The Locusts.
Maggie: Gosh, I don't know.
Lucas: You'll be 33.
Maggie: Oh, wow.

Cappie: Hey, what's the point?
Bruno: Hey, I'm kidding around, and this fat little marshmallow opens his mouth to me.
Cappie: Don't worry about it. Let's go see a movie.
Bruno: You better watch your mouth fat boy.
[grabs Lucas by the neck]
Bruno: Learn to be like Lucas here, he's smart, not like you.
Ben: He's scared, not like me.
Bruno: Oh, yeah?
Ben: Yeah.
Bruno: You know, you're asking for it.
Lucas: Well, so are you!

Angie: No fights, I mean it.
Cappie: I'd listen to the lady.
