  • A girl teenager asks a guy teenager if he saw her changing into her swimsuit. He says he did, meaning he saw her totally naked, but she says she isn't embarrassed (though we don't see anything).
  • A teenager poses as his girlfriend's father in order to sneak her out of school. In view of the principal, they kiss passionately; the principal only responds "so that's how it is in their family."
