What you got running here, a bait shop?
Like, it's sushi, don't you know?
[points at each platter as she identifies them]
Like, this here is tuna, that's flying fish egg, and that's sea urchin.
This is pistachio paste, isn't it?
[picks up a smear of wasabi with a chopstick and eats it; he then watches party guests enjoying the sushi]
Dig in, Fred.
I think I'll go get something to drink.

Happy 25th Birthday to Valley Girl! Great soundtrack, plausible story, wonderful performances...captures the spirit of the 80's; the slang of the mainstreams and the outcasts. A wonderful rendition of high school life and "gritty downtown" from a suburban perspective.
The soundtrack contains songs by Modern English, Felony, Josie Cotton, Sparks, Payola$, Josie Cotton, The Plimsouls, The Psychedelic Furs, Men At Work, The Flirts and Bananarama.
This movie truly is Romeo and Juliet (minus the double suicide) set in 1980's Los Angeles. Julie's dad, played by Frederic Forrest (Sonny Bono, anyone?) is hysterical as a hippie idealistic dad who wonders how he sprung such a materialistic offspring. Yet, he doesn't judge, ya dig??
