Quotes

Tripper: You must be the short depressed kid we ordered.

Tripper: Attention. Here's an update on tonight's dinner. It was veal. I repeat, veal. The winner of tonight's mystery meat contest is Jeffrey Corbin who guessed "some kind of beef."

Crockett: Hardware.

Hardware: Yeah, Crockett?

Crockett: You're a dick.

Tripper: But, the real excitement of course is going to come at the end of the summer, during Sexual Awareness week. We import two hundred hookers from around the world, and each camper, armed with only a thermos of coffee and two thousand dollars cash, tries to visit as many countries as he can. The winner of course is named King of Sexual Awareness week and is allowed to rape and pillage the neighboring towns until camp ends.

Tripper: Mmmmm. Look at all those steaming wieners. Do you know what they're saying? They're saying, "This is the year that Fink beats 'The Stomach'."

[Fink picks up a hot dog and holds it to his ear]

Tripper: No, it's a couple of them over here... but they're saying it.

Rudy: I saw you dancing with Roxanne.

Tripper: Oh yeah? Well, she sort'a cornered me and there was nothing I could do without embarrassing her.

Rudy: Do you like her?

Tripper: Well I feel sorry for her, you know. She's got a glass eye. And, uh, I'm one of the few people who knows exactly which eye to look at when they're talking to her, so she's sort of fixated on me.

Rudy: Well, I like her.

Tripper: Well you're not exactly known for your taste. I'll probably just use her for the rest of the summer and then throw her on the scrap heap with all the rest of the women that I've destroyed.

Tripper: And even if we win, if we win, HAH! Even if we win! Even if we play so far above our heads that our noses bleed for a week to ten days; even if God in Heaven above comes down and points his hand at our side of the field; even if every man woman and child held hands together and prayed for us to win, it just wouldn't matter because all the really good looking girls would still go out with the guys from Mohawk because they've got all the money! It just doesn't matter if we win or we lose. IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER!

Rest of group: IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER! IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER...

Wendy: Tripper, I'm looking forward to some action this summer. I hope you can supply it.

Tripper: I'll supply it for you, but the guy you gotta watch out for is Spaz!

Wendy: Spaz?

Tripper: He's a sex machine.

Wendy: He couldn't wake me up with a trumpet and a drum!

Tripper: Well I went out with him one night and he got off six nurses by himself, and four of them couldn't report to work the next morning!

Roxanne: [Tripper has proposed that they live together after the summer] Where would I stay?

Tripper: My place, what do you think?

Roxanne: Is it big enough?

Tripper: It's *got* a *double bed.* What's the matter with you, haven't you ever lived with anybody before?

Roxanne: No. Have you?

Tripper: Pets, you know, a dog, a fish. No, I haven't. I've never asked anybody before.

[They kiss]

Tripper: I'm takin' the C.I.T.s on an overnight for the next couple days so you're gonna have to do your own training, son. I want you to run two miles today and two and a half tomorrow.

Rudy: I've never run that far.

Tripper: Neither have I but somebody's gotta do it. I can't be expected to do it. Somebody's gotta do it, and it can't be me. Because I'm too busy. I've responsibilities. I'm the entertainment director for the overnight.

[Holds up a bottle of wine]

Rudy: I'm going away.

Tripper: You goin' to Vegas? If you're going to Vegas, I would be up for it because I love that town. I'm a party guy. I love that town.

Rudy: I don't think they want me around.

Tripper: You talkin' about the soccer heads back there?

Tripper: Well, that's life in the fast-paced slam-bang, live-on-the-razor's-edge, laugh-in-the-face-of-death world of junior league soccer.

Larry Finkelstein: [talking about Spaz and Jackie] How did you make out?

Spaz: Well, we just kind of talked.

Larry Finkelstein: You had her in the woods and you just talked? You didn't do anything. YOU DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.

Spaz: I, um, held her hand when we walked home.

Larry Finkelstein: Held her hand? Spaz, you're on your way! Held her hand. In the woods! And it was dark!

Spaz: Yeah.

Tripper: [dancing together] Is that a bra you're wearing, or are you expecting an assassination attempt?

Roxanne: Are those Clorets in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?

Tripper: OK, we're even. 3 years of this. I don't think I have many lines left. Frankly, Roxanne, I'm frightened.

Roxanne: Oh, no. Don't go human on me now, Tripper.
