[walks over with a bat]
Why don't you lay off?
Why don't you go back where you belong, hose head.
Take your hands off Kenneth or I'll break your arm. Your pitching arm.
Oh yeah? Don't make me laugh, lawn boy.
Let go. NOW!

Sometimes the most important thing eludes us and we don't recognize it. Not everyone has the opportunity to recognize, especially when one lives it, what is really important, what is in fact real; the truth of who we are and who others are. And to recognize that before the others and ourselves. Not everyone has that opportunity. Almost all of us fall in the lies and fictions of who we are, who the others are and the place of all of us in our world, but only few of us - lucky few - manage, in the end, but maybe still in time, to see the truth, the reality. And these ones, may consider themselves very happy.
All it takes is to understand that, and we can be who we want to: our own selves.
If you like '80s teen comedies, this one is not to be missed. I liked this movie and i just wanted to share these thoughts i had after seeing it. Patrick Dempsey is good in it, and Amanda Peterson is absolutely great, loved her. Wish i had met a girl like her when i was in high school. But then again, maybe i did...
7/10 overall, a good movie.
