VINCE LOMBARDI HIGH SCHOOL
"winning isn't the most important thing ... It's the only thing."


[Freshman] [Reading board] "YOU ARE HERE"
I'm where?

[Football Players] Freshman! Let's get him!

[Freshman] Help! Help! Seniors!

[Girl Student] Freshman! Freshman! We've got another Freshman!

[Freshman] Please! Put me down! Help!

[1ST PLACE SCIENCE AWARD: KATE RAMBEAU

[Freshman] Please, help me race to my first class!

[Football Player 1] What do we do with him?

[Football Player 2] Stuff him in a locker!

[Freshman] No! Not the locker! Anything but the locker!

[Music] "Did We Meet Somewhere Before"
by Paul McCartney

Did we meet somewhere before?
Far behind that half closed door?
Or is this just one small thing that's happening to both of us?
Happening time and time again,
Happening over and over,
Will the king's horses and all the king's men
Ever find out what it's all about?
Did you always look like this,
At the unsuspected kiss?
Of is this just one more thing that's happening to both of us?


[Tom Roberts] [To football players] Hey!

[Football Player] Nice game, Tom -- even though we lost!

[Tom Roberts] Oh, yeah!

[To unidentified person] Hey!

[Boy] How's the old arm?

[Tom Roberts] Still pretty sore!

[Kate Rambeau] [Sits at table with Tom] Hi, Tom.

[Tom Roberts] [Nods at Kate, then picks up his book]

[Kate Rambeau] [Rebuffed by Tom, Kate studies her own books]

[VINCE LOMBARDI HIGH SCHOOL, BOARD OF EDUCATION]

[School Board President] Never before has the school board seen a student body such as this.
But starting today, things will be different.
May I present to you an administrator ...
who has promised to carry out her duties ...
with an iron hand!
The new principal of Vince Lombardi High ...
Miss Evelyn Togar.

[School Board] [Clapping]

[Miss Togar] [Snaps her fingers at Fritz Hansel for her speech]
[Snaps them again]
Thank you.
[Clears her throat]
Members of the Board ...
as we stand on the threshold of a new decade ...
we must face harsh realities.
Our educational system has become far too permissive.
As that famous scholar once said ...

[Fritz Hansel] [Hands her the script]

[Miss Togar] "My darling Evelyn ...
how I long for the feel of your luscious thighs ...
wrapped around ...
[cuts off]
[Wads up paper and throws it on the floor]

[Fritz Hansel] [Gives her another script]

[Miss Togar] As you all know ...
I am here to replace Professor Web ...
who is unable to continue his duties as the chief administrator of this school.
And now I would like us all to rise and salute Professor Webb for his wonderful, gallant effort.

[School Board Members] [Rise]

[Nurses] [Spoon feed Professor Webb]

***

[Mr. McGree] Ludwig Van Beethoven ...
whom you will be interested to learn ...
wrote his greatest symphony ...
at a time when he was completely deaf ...
a feat that was practically unheard of at the time.
[Laughing]

[Students] [Groaning]

[Mr. McGree] I know that most of you are used to listening to a very different kind of music ...
but I hope that when you hear the immortal strings of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony ...
you will realize what a work of genius it really is.
[Attempts to put a record on the record player, which isn't there]
I seem to have misplaced the turntable.


[Riff Randell] Hi, everybody.
I'm Riff Randell ...
and this is Rock 'N' Roll High School!

[Music] "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker"
by The Ramones

Well the kids are all hopped up and ready to go
They're ready to go now they got their surfboards
And they're going to the discotheque Au Go Go
But she just couldn't stay she had to break away
Well New York City really has it all oh yeah, oh yeah
Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker now
Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker now
Well she's a punk punk, a punk rocker
Punk punk a punk rocker
Punk punk a punk rocker
Punk punk a punk rocker]

[Students] [Stop dancing]

[Riff Randell] Kate, I'm getting some static!

[Kate Rambeau] Not as much as you're going to get.

[Miss Togar] So. This is the type of behavior that I can expect.
The minute there's not a teacher in the room, the entire school erupts into a shameless display of adolescent abandon.

[Students] [Laughing]

[Miss Togar] If it's discipline that you students need ...
I am the one who can provide it for you.
Well, now ...
I'm not interested in punishing anyone.

[Students] [Laughing]

[Miss Evelyn Togar] But I think for the good of the whole school ...
the person responsible for this deviation from the schedule ...
should step forward.

[Kate Rambeau] [Steps forward]

[Riff Randell] [To Kate] Kate -- what are you doing?

[Miss Togar] [To Kate] What is your name?

[Kate Rambeau] Kate Rambeau.

[Miss Evelyn Togar] [To Riff] And who are you?

[Riff Randell] [Offers Miss Togar her hand to shake] I'm Riff Randell, rock 'n' roller.

[Students] [Laughing]

[Miss Togar] Obviously, you do not know who I am.
I am Miss Togar.
And I am the new principal ...
of this school.

[Wolf howling]

[Miss Evelyn Togar] I want you to go to your classes ...
[whispering] now!

ALLAN ARKUSH
& JOE DANTE


[Miss Togar] [To Riff and Kate] This incident is going down ...
on your permanent record ...
a record that's going to follow you ...
throughout your entire life.
You have managed to upset the entire school ...
with this godforsaken noise.

[Riff Randell] Noise? That's the Ramones' best album.
Number 1 with the Bullet.

[Miss Togar] Randell --
I want to see you both in detention center --
before the next bell!
Or else!
[Turns and walks away]

[Kate Rambeau] Oh, Riff -- detention center.
I've never served a detention before!

[Riff Randell] Oh, don't worry!
I've done more detentions than anyone in the school's history.

[Riff Randell] Oh, come on! It's not the end of the world. Yahoo! Detention!

[Tom Roberts] I don't understand it! I mean, I'm captain of the football team.
My complexion has cleared up.
And soon I'm going to be going to the college of my choice!
Why don't girls go for me?

[Cheryl] Hi, Tom!

[Tom Roberts] [Grabs Cheryl's belt and yanks on it] Hey, Cheryl!
How you doing? [Looking at her chest] Ahhhh!
Ahhhh!
Nice weather we've been having, huh?
A little dry lately, though.
I hear it's raining cats and dogs in Idaho.

[Cheryl] [Closes her eyes]

[Tom Roberts] [Laughs]

[Cheryl] Sure, Tom.
Be seeing you!

[Tom Roberts] Alright.
What went wrong?
[Snaps his fingers]
Maybe I'm too forward.

[Shawn] Hiya Tom.

[Tom Roberts] Hey, Shawn, baby.
How you doing?
Que Pasa?
Nice weather we've been having lately, huh?
It's been a little dry, though, huh?

[Shawn] I hear it's been raining cats and dogs in Idaho.

[Tom Roberts] [Touches her chin] Yes!

[Shawn] See you later, Tom.

[Tom Roberts] Yes.
What happened?
What went wrong?

[Freshman] ... football type ...
[incoherent]

[Tom Roberts] [Slams locker door] I've got to get myself together.
I need to improve my self-image
I need to broaden my horizons!

[Music] "I Want to be Sedated"

Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated

Two hours later you know where I was found


[Tom Roberts] [Enters Boy's Restroom, site of Eaglebauer Enterprises]

[Boys] [Smoking]

[Freshman] No, not the urinal!
Anything but the urinal!
No! Please!

[Bullies] Watch it! Watch it!

[Student 1] Hey, man, where are you going? Get at the end of the line!

[Students] [Protesting against Tom going to the head of the line]

[Student 2] Get in line like everybody else!

[Tom Roberts] [To Norma] Hi! I need to see Eaglebauer.

[Norma] Oh, I'm sorry, but he's tied up at the moment. Why don't you just take a number and have a seat.

[Tom Roberts] Miss, you don't understand. See, this is an emergency.

[Norma] [Surprised] Animal, vegetable, or mineral?

[Tom Roberts] Uh, sexual.

[Students] [Gasp]

[Norma] [Into telephone intercom] It's a Code 9!
[To Tom] He'll see you immediately!

[Siren] [Wails]

[Tom Roberts] [Enters Eaglebauer's office]

[Eaglebauer] Tom, my man!
It's good to see ya. Good to see ya. How are you doing?
Well, have a seat! Have a seat! Geez! Well! So what will it be for the star quarterback of Vince Lombardi High?
Fake I.D.?
Get you liquor in any state?

[Tom Roberts] Uh, no.

[Eaglebauer] Hall pass? Test Answers?

[Tom Roberts] No. That's not going to solve my problem.

[Eaglebauer] [Slams his hand down on his desk]
It's been like this all morning!
Ever since Togar took office. The whole school is in turmoil!

Initiates of the Egyptian Mysteries were sometimes called scarabs; again, lions and panthers. The scarab was the emissary of the sun, symbolizing light, truth, and regeneration. Stone scarabs, called heart scarabs, about three inches long, were placed in the heart cavity of the dead when that organ was removed to be embalmed separately as part of the process of mummifying. Some maintain that the stone beetles were merely wrapped in the winding cloths at the time of preparing the body for eternal preservation. The following passage concerning this appears in the great Egyptian book of initiation, The Book of the Dead: “And behold, thou shalt make a scarab of green stone, which shalt be placed in the breast of a man, and it shall perform for him, ‘the opening of the mouth.'” The funeral rites of many nations bear a striking resemblance to the initiatory ceremonies of their Mysteries.

Ra, the god of the sun, had three important aspects. As the Creator of the universe he was symbolized by the head of a scarab and was called Khepera, which signified the resurrection of the soul and a new life at the end of the mortal span. The mummy cases of the Egyptian dead were nearly always ornamented with scarabs. Usually one of these beetles, with outspread wings, was painted on the mummy case directly over the breast of the dead. The finding of such great numbers of small stone scarabs indicates that they were a favorite article of adornment among the Egyptians. Because of its relationship to the sun, the scarab symbolized the divine part of man’s nature. The fact that its beautiful wings were concealed under its glossy shell typified the winged soul of man hidden within its earthly sheath. The Egyptian soldiers were given the scarab as their special symbol because the ancients believed that these creatures were all of the male sex and consequently appropriate emblems of virility, strength, and courage.

Plutarch noted the fact that the scarab rolled its peculiar ball of dung backwards, while the insect itself faced the opposite direction. This made it an especially fitting symbol for the sun, because this orb (according to Egyptian astronomy) was rolling from west to east, although apparently moving in the opposite direction. An Egyptian allegory states that the sunrise is caused by the scarab unfolding its wings, which stretch out as glorious colors on each side of its body–the solar globe–and that when it folds its wings under its dark shell at sunset, night follows. Khepera, the scarab-headed aspect of Ra, is often symbolized riding through the sea of the sky in a wonderful ship called the Boat of the Sun.

Up for grabs is Fourth Prize from Disney's National Treasure 2 Sweepstakes. The sweepstakes had an ARV of $75 for the medallion. The Scottish Rite is currently selling the medallion in their online store for $100. I have seen it selling for less elsewhere online.

The bronze medallion commemorates the 190th Anniversary of the Supreme Council, 33rd Degree, of the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite, Southern Jurisdiction, U.S.A., in 1991. It was minted by Medallic Art Co of Danbury, CT. The front of the medallion has a portrait of Albert Pike (1809 - 1891) in high relief. Albert Pike was elected Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite's Southern Jurisdiction in 1859 and served the Freemasons in that capacity until his death.

The reverse side of the medallion commemorates the 50th Anniversary of Mount Rushmore by Sculptor Gutzon Borglum, 32nd Degree.

Well, look! Look at this!
Fake I.D.s down 50%.
Test answers down 60%.
Hall passes are falling off the board!
Let's get back to you.
Tell me exactly what you want out of life.

[Tom Roberts] I want someone with huge breasts.

[Eaglebauer] [Philosophically] "The sweet, stirring, passionate youth."

[Tom Roberts] I want to get laid before I'm 30.

[Eaglebauer] Are you a virgin?

[Tom Roberts] Uh, do you mean "technically"?

[Eaglebauer] You've come to the right place. Eaglebauer Enterprises is a name that stands for quality.
I'm going to get you a date with the most primo lady in this school: Kate Rambeau!

[Tom Roberts] [Mouthing the name "Kate Rambeau," as if trying to place her.]

[Cornets playing]

[Eaglebauer] Johnny, why don't you tell Tom how happy he'll be with Kate.

[Invisible Johnny] Right you are, Mr. Bauer. Kate Rambeau, age 17, attends Vince Lombardi High ...
where she majors in nuclear physics.
This perky gal on the go's hobbies include splitting protons, and checkers.
Included in your night to remember is a matched set of Travel-Ways luggage.

[Woman's Voices] Oooohhhh! That's Travel-Ways Luggage, the first name in travel for over five years. And now back to you, Mr. Eaglebauer.

[Audience] [Clapping]

[Tom Roberts] [Reluctantly clapping]

[Eaglebauer] Thank you, Johnny.
Well, there she is, Tom!

[Tom Roberts] I had somebody else in mind.

[Eaglebauer] Ah, but Tom -- my files indicate she's perfect for you.

[Tom Roberts] I know, I know. But I was kind of hoping you could set me up with -- with Riff Randell!

[Eaglebauer] [Throws himself backwards and slams his back against the wall] Riff Randell!
How about our cheerleader?
Nice set of pompons!

[Tom Roberts] [Jumps up and grabs the pompons] No!
The only girl I ever dream about at night is Riff.
But I always keep waking up just before the good part.

[Eaglebauer] Well, how are you set for large amounts of hard cash?

[Tom Roberts] Snaps his fingers]
I have a major credit card!

[Eaglebauer] [Takes credit card and punches telephone speaker] Uh, Norma, dear ...

[Norma] Yes, Mr. Eaglebauer.

[Eaglebauer] Yes, would you draw up a contract for a Tom Roberts and Riff Randell?

[Tom Roberts] [Extends his hand to shake Eaglebauer's, but Eaglebauer ignores it. He's got the money.]

[Tom pretends to look at his watch, instead.]

[Music] "Rock 'n' Roll"
by Lou Reed

Then one fine morning, she put on a New York station
And she couldn't believe what she heard at all
She started dancing to that fine-fine music
Ahh, her life was saved by rock 'n' roll
Rock 'n' roll


[Coach Steroid] What's that thing in your ear, Randell?

[Kate Rambeau] It's a hearing aid.
Don't [inaudible] She's very sensitive about it.

[Coach Steroid] [Talking loudly] Oh, I'm sorry to hear that, Randell.

[Riff Randell] What?

[Coach Steroid] [Yelling into Riff's machine] Sorry to hear that, Randell!

[Riff Randell] Fine! How are you?

[Coach Steroid] [Yelling] Oh, I'm fine. Thank you!

[Riff Randell] Oh, I'd say about a quarter to two.

[Kate Rambeau] C'mon Riff. Let's go!

[Riff Randell] But I just had lunch.

[Coach Steroid] So young!

[Riff Randell] [Laughing]

[Kate Rambeau] That was kind of close. We just got out of trouble. You want to put us back in?

[Riff Randell] Are you kidding?
[Mimicking Coach Steroid] "What's that thing in your ear?"
She doesn't even know the Beatles broke up.

***

[Miss Togar] [To Fritz Hansel & Gretel] I know something is going on behind my back.
[chuckling]
You two are not doing your jobs!
Look at me when I'm talking to you!
You're supposed to be ...
my eyes, my ears ...
my nose!

[Fritz Hansel] [Sneezing]

[Miss Evelyn Togar] Thank you!
[Wipes her nose with a kleenex]
If this school is going to get back on the winning track ...
we have to start cracking down immediately!
[Picks up the Ramones record]
And I know just ...
where to begin.
Okay!
You take a note to Mr. McGree ...
and I want you to take the same note to Coach Steroid.
And tell them to meet me immediately in the science lab.

[Fritz Hansel] [Looks at Miss Togar adoringly]

[Miss Evelyn Togar] [Waves him off, dismissively]

[Fritz Gretel] [Climbs over the counter and knocks everything down]

[Fritz Hansel] [Waves goodbye to Miss Togar]

[Miss Togar] [Can't believe it]

[Music]

[Fritz Gretel] [Lights a cigarette]
[Makes a paper airplane out of the note]
[Sets it flying]

[Mr. McGree] The most famous notes in all the musical literature is about ...
[Paper airplane lands in Mr. McGree's ear]

[Class] [Laughing]

[Mr. McGree] Earmail!

[Class] [Groaning]

[Mr. McGree] Class, I have to go to Miss Togar's office.
I'd like you to look over the chapter on Beethoven's Fifth Symphony while I'm gone.

[Class] [Groaning]

[Mr. McGree] Oh, and class -- as soon as I get back, there's going to be a surprise quiz on this material.

[Class] [Groaning]

[Fritz Gretel] [Makes a pig face at the students]

[Students] [Throw papers at him]

***

[Kate Rambeau] [At the top of the rope in gym class]

[Riff Randell] [To Kate] Come on!

[Coach Steroid] Nice work, Rambeau. I knew you could do it.
Okay, now come on down.

[Kate Rambeau] I'm stuck!

[Coach Steroid] Nonsense! There's nothing to it! Just go hand over hand but -- above all -- do not slide!

[Kate Rambeau] [Slides to ground, making a screeching sound]

[Riff Randell] [Gasps]

[To Kate] Are you all right?

[Coach Steroid] All right, girls. She's okay. You're okay, Rambeau. Get up and walk it off! Come on! Come on, girls! Move it!

[Fritz Hansel] [Comes swinging in, like Tarzan, and grabs Cheryl]

[Cheryl] [To Fritz Hansel] Hey!

[Shawn] That creep?!

[Cheryl] Yep!

[Fritz Hansel] [Hands Coach Steroid the note]
[Makes kissy faces at Cheryl]

[Cheryl] [To Fritz] Yech!

[Coach Steroid] [Reading note] Darling, Evelyn, how I long for the feel of your luscious thighs --

[Fritz Hansel] [Grabs the note away] Wrong note!
[Gives her the other note]

[Coach Steroid] [Reads the note]
All right! Class!
[Blows her whistle]
Listen up!

[Riff Randell] [To Kate] Are you okay?

[Kate Rambeau] Yes, thank you.

[Coach Steroid] I'm going to be gone for a few minutes.
While I'm away, I want you to continue with your exercises for the day.
[Turns on music]

[Class] [Groans]

[Coach Steroid] Nah! None of that! Let's have a little enthusiasm!
[Blows her whistle again]
[Starts doing jumping jacks as an example]
And a one, and a two, and a jumping up and down. Come on, girls! That's right! Peppy!

[Girls] [Lackadaisacally do jumping jacks]

[Coach Steroid] Now keep that up until I get back.

***

[Miss Togar] [Enters room and noisily closes door]
Well, you're probably wondering why I called you here.

[Fritz Hansel] [Raises his hand] Hey, I know. I know!

[Fritz Gretel] Me! Me!

[Fritz Hansel] I know! I know!

[Miss Togar] Go and monitor the halls!
[Waves them out dismissively]
[Clears her throat] Since assuming office this morning, I've noticed a couple of peculiar incidents among the members of the student body ...
all having to do with rock and roll music.

[Mr. McGree] Miss Togar, I have no particular love for rock and roll, but it doesn't seem to me that listening to it actually hurts the students.

[Miss Togar] Hah, hah hah! But that's where you're wrong, Mr. McGree.
[Holds a white mice up]
Recently, I have been doing a study of mice subjected to rock and roll music
Here we have a picture of this mouse. A typical member of the genus ratus rodendi ...
as he appeared before the start of my investigation.
Clean, good-natured ...
content to scamper playfully about his cage.
[Changes out the pictures]
This is a picture of the same mouse ...
one week after the introduction of rock and roll music.

[Coach Steroid] I never dreamed!

[Miss Togar] Oh, the results were dramatic! He lost all interest in keeping his cage tidy.

[Mr. McGree] How scientific!

[Miss Togar] He played his electric guitar far into the night, keeping the other test animals awake.

[Coach Steroid] He did?!

[Miss Togar] And he met this female mouse ...
and they have been sharing a cage together out of wedlock.

[Coach Steroid] That's fascinating, Miss Togar!

[Miss Evelyn Togar] Yes. It is.

[Mr. McGree] [To Coach Steroid] Is she crazy?

[Coach Steroid] [Back to Mr. McGree] She's the principal!

***

[Fritz Hansel] [Mocking Miss Togar] "Monitor the hall! Monitor the hall!" I am sick of monitoring the hall!
Let's go monitor the freshman!

[Fritz Gretel] Good idea!

[Grab the Freshman]

[Fritz Gretel] Alright. What the hell do you think you're doing out here?

[Freshman] Well, I was just getting my books!

[Fritz Gretel] Listen, do you have a hall pass?

[Freshman] Well, no!

[Fritz Hansel & Gretel] No hall pass?

[Fritz Hansel] Hit 'em! Hit 'em!

[Freshman] Hey, guys, I'm allergic to violence. I break out in blood

[Fritz Hansel] Hit him anyway!

[Fritz Gretel] Calm down! Let me see some I.D. Come on, I haven't got all day.

[Freshman] Well, I need it for the sock hop tonight.

[Fritz Gretel] [Hits him] The sock hop! Who would dance with you? All you have is a buck?

[Fritz Hansel] I'll have that!

[Fritz Gretel] [Looking at his I.D.] Is this you?

[Freshman] Well -- I take a bad picture.

[Fritz Gretel] Tell me about it!

[Fritz Hansel] Ooooh!

[Fritz Gretel] Yuk! Listen, I'm going to give you a demerit!

[Freshman] What's a demerit?

[Fritz Hansel] If you get enough of them, you wind up in Miss Togar's office!

[Fritz Hansel & Gretel] Demerit! Demerit!

[Freshman] Well, what for?

[Fritz Hansel & Gretel] Because you're ugly!
[Cover his face with his hat]

[Fritz Hansel] Hit him now. Hit him. Hit him.

[Fritz Gretel] Wait! Let's go monitor the girl's gym.

[Fritz Hansel] All right!

[Freshman] [Making muffled noises]

PART 2 OF 4

[Girls] [Lackadaisacally doing jumping jacks]

[Riff Randell] [Turns off the music]

[Kate Rambeau] What are you doing, Riff?

[Riff Randell] Gym class called on account of boredom.
Got some of my homework instead.

[Kate Rambeau] Homework?

[Riff Randell] Yeah. From Mr. McGree's songwriting class. I've written a song for the Ramones. Wait'll you hear this!

[Music] "Rock N Roll High School"
by Riff Randell

[Riff Randell] [Singing] Rock, rock, rock, rock ...
rock and roll high school!
Well, I don't care about history
Rock, rock, rock 'n' roll high school
'Cause that's not where I wanna be
Rock, rock, rock 'n' roll high school
I just want to have some kicks
I just wanna get some chicks
Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock'n'roll high school
Well the girls out there knock me out, you know
Rock, rock, rock 'n' roll high school
Cruisin' around in my GTO
Rock, rock, rock 'n' roll high school
I hate the teachers and the principal

[Miss Togar] Next, I investigated reports of loss of hearing by individuals ...
due to the high decibel level ...
involved in playing rock 'n' roll music.
Put on these ear-protective devices, as I am going to --
Mr. McGree -- play a song by the Ramones --
at the decibel level consistent ...
with that used in your average concert.
[Tapping her stick at the mouse] Your standard mouse!
And your standard speakers.
Now, back! Back!
This is the rockometer.
It is used to measure comparative rock 'n' roll intensity levels.
Watch the mouse while I turn it on.

Lobotomy!

[Kate Rambeau] Uh, Cheryl ...
do you think Tom Roberts ...
is cute?

[Cheryl] Yes, but he's such a dork!

[Kate Rambeau] No, he's not!

[Cheryl] [Nods her head, "yes he is."]

[Kate Rambeau] I think he's a fox!

[Riff Randell] A fox?!
Tom Roberts is so boring, his brother is an only child. He's not half as hot as Joey Ramone!

[Kate Rambeau] Who's Joey Ramone?

[Riff Randell] [Knocking on the mirror in front of Kate] Where have you been? Mars?!
Earth calling Kate!
He just happens to be the lead singer in the Ramones.

[Shawn] Boy, I wish we could see them this Thursday at their concert!

[Riff Randell] So, what's stopping you?

[Cheryl] We can't cut classes to stand in line for tickets.

[Shawn] That's right.

[Riff Randell] Oh, please! Ten years from now, no one will care if you've ever been to high school ...
much less skipped a few classes.
You all act as if everything's so important around here.
I mean, just because Togar's stuck in the fifties, doesn't mean there isn't life after high school, you know.
I mean, I've got my own future to think about. I know I can write for the Ramones. All I've got to do is get my songs to them. They won't be in town again for another year, so I've got to see them now!

[Cheryl] [To Riff] Hey! Well, we want to go as much as you, but we can't all cut classes!

[Riff Randell] Well, I guess it's up to me. But you'll have to cover for me, Kate.
I'm going to take a 3-day leave from Camp Lombardi, and be first in line!
If anyone wants to join me at front row center, why you just let me know.

[Girls] [Murmuring]

[Riff Randell] Alright!

[Music] "School Days"
by Chuck Berry

Up in the mornin' and out to school
The teacher is teachin' the Golden Rule
American history and practical math
You study' em hard and hopin' to pass
Workin' your fingers right down to the bone
And the guy behind you won't leave you alone
Ring ring goes the bell
The cook in the lunchroom's ready to sell
You're lucky if you can find a seat
You're fortunate if you have time to eat
Back in the classroom open you books
Gee but the teacher don't know
How mean she looks
Soon as three o'clock rolls around
You finally lay your burden down
Close up your books, get out of your seat
Down the halls and into the street
Up to the corner and 'round the bend
Right to the juke joint you go in

[Riff Randell] [Sets up Ramones cardboard cutout, and kisses each of the Ramones]

[Music] With the one you love you're makin' romance
All day long you been
Wantin' to dance
Feelin' the music from head to toe
'Round and 'round and 'round you go
Drop the coin right into the slot
You gotta hear something that's really hot
Hail, hail rock 'n' roll
Deliver me from the days of old
Long live rock 'n' roll
The beat of the drum is loud and bold
Rock rock rock 'n' roll
The feelin' is there body and soul

[Eaglebauer] [To Invisible Johnny] It's Kate!

[To Kate] Yeah, come on in.

[Kate Rambeau] Hello, Mr. Eaglebauer.

[Eaglebauer] How are you doing?

[Kate Rambeau] Great! Thank you!

[Eaglebauer] Oh, please! Sit down! Sit down!
What can I do for you, Kate?

[Kate Rambeau] Well, I want to go out on a date!

[Eaglebauer] Say no more!
Eaglebauer Enterprises has a man for you.
Tell me, have you had much experience with boys?

[Kate Rambeau] Well, once I played nurse with the boy next door and got sued for malpractice.
[Laughs]

[Eaglebauer] [Laughs uneasily]
[Makes a face]

[Kate Rambeau] I wish part of Riff would rub off on me.
Everything's so easy for her!

[Eaglebauer] Did you have any one particular person in mind

[Kate Rambeau] Well --
I was kind of hoping that ...
you might fix me up with ...
[whispering] with Tom Roberts.

[Eaglebauer] [Screeching] Tom Roberts?!

[Kate Rambeau] [Nods her head vigorously] [Whispers] Yes.

[Tom Roberts] I love him! He's a great guy. I love him!

[Kate Rambeau] Can you do it?

[Kate Rambeau and Eaglebauer driving to Lover's Lane in his car]

[Kate Rambeau] This will never work! Tom will never like me! I don't know who I'm kidding!
What possible reason could there be to put myself through all this?
Sex! [Laughs]
I must admit, as far as reasons go, it must be one of the best!

[Eaglebauer] Kate, I've known Tom ever since he was a Freshman, when I sold him his first touchdown! Believe me, you're just the type of girl he goes for!

[Music] Did you always look like this?

[Eaglebauer] [To Tom Roberts] Tom, my man!
How's my would-be Romeo?

[Tom Roberts] Eaglebauer, what are we doing up here?!
I thought we were going to start training today.

[Eaglebauer] This is the perfect spot for it. The most romantic setting in the city! Just you, the skyline, and your training partner.

[Tom Roberts] My training partner?

[Kate Rambeau] [Gets out of car]
Hi, Tom!

[Tom Roberts] [To Eaglebauer] I was kind of expecting Riff Randell.
[Grabs Eaglebauer by the shoulders]
Eaglebauer -- I don't know if I can go through with this.
Couldn't I just practice with myself?

[Eaglebauer] You've done too much of that already!

[Tom Roberts] Yeah.

[Eaglebauer] [Puts his arms around Kate and Tom]
For the next three days, you two are going to have nothing but fun!
The first lesson: necking.
The place? Lover's Lane.
The reason: Well, you're young!
[Sprays perfume around]

[Kate Rambeau] [Makes faces at the perfume]

[Eaglebauer] Now, what's the first thing you guys do?

[Kate and Tom] [Move away from each other]

[Eaglebauer] Ah, no, no, no, no!
[Tells Kate and Tom to pay attention]
[Yawns]
[Puts his arm around the blow-up woman]
[Turns her face toward him]
[And grossly molests her]

[Blow-up Girl] [Slaps Tom!]

[Eaglebauer] [Instructs Tom to get inside Kate's blouse]

[Tom Roberts] [breaks Kate's rose apart -- deflowers her]
[Expresses frustration]

[Kate Rambeau] [Opens her blouse and gives him a peek]

[Eaglebauer] Now this next step can either make or break a successful date.
The one-handed approach to strap unfastening is a basic skill that must be mastered. Now watch closely as I demonstrate.
There's the hook.
The snap.
There is the double-hook.
There is the dreaded mini-hooks.
And if you play your cards right ...
the easy-open frontal assault.

[Kate Rambeau] Very good, but that's geography, and this is calculus.

[Riff Randell] Oooh, sorry!

[Kate Rambeau] Look at your math book. It looks brand new. I bet you've never even opened it.

[Riff Randell] I only use it on special equations!
[Laughs]
Oh, I don't feel like studying tonight!
[Throws her math book on the floor]

[Kate Rambeau] Yeah, I've got to get home anyway.
I'm expecting Tom to call me tonight.

[Riff Randell] You really like him, don't you?

[Kate Rambeau] Uh hmmm.
I've been seeing a lot of him lately.

[Riff Randell] You have?

[Kate Rambeau] Uh hmmm. Eaglebauer says we were made for one another.

[Riff Randell] Are you kidding?

[Kate Rambeau] That could be pretty special.

[Riff's telephone rings]

[Riff Randell] [Grabs the telephone]
Hello?

[Tom Roberts] [to Eaglebauer] She's on the line.

[Eaglebauer] Just remember what I told you!

[Music] "I Want to Be Your Boyfriend"
by The Ramones

Hey, little girl
I wanna be your boyfriend
Sweet little girl

Do you love me babe?
What can I say?
Because I wanna be your boyfriend


[Tom Roberts] Hello, um, Riff? Hi. It's Tom.

[Riff Randell] [Making a face] Tom?!

[Tom Roberts] Yeah, Tom Roberts. Football player?

[Riff Randell] No.

[Tom Roberts] I talk about the weather a lot.

[Riff Randell] Oh, yeah!

[To Kate] Hey, Kate, it's Tom Roberts on the phone.

[Kate Rambeau] [Talking to herself] [Taking off her glasses] Tom?
Why would he call me here?

[Riff Randell] So, how's the weather?

[Tom Roberts] Ahhhh, it's a little dry lately.

[Riff Randell] Yeah, but I hear it's raining cats and dogs in Idaho.
[Laughing with Kate]

[Tom Roberts] Yes! Yessss!
[To Eaglebauer] Oh, man, it's going great!

[Eaglebauer] Oh, wait!
[Points to the van picture]

[Tom Roberts] Listen, I'm just lying here in my new van ...

[Eaglebauer] [Points to the waterbed]

[Tom Roberts] You know, in my beautiful waterbed ...
listening to the Ramones' ...
brand new album ...

[Kate Rambeau] [Trying to interrupt Riff]

[Riff Randall] [Scowls at Kate]

[Eaglebauer] [Points to the stereo]

[Tom Roberts] ... on this fantastically expensive stereo.

[Eaglebauer] [makes sign of rightness]

[Kate Rambeau] [Scowls back at Riff]

[Riff Randall] [Shushes Kate]

[Tom Roberts] ... wondering if you'd like to maybe go out tonight and get drunk.

[Riff Randell] Alright!

[Tom Roberts] Listen, I really wish you'd reconsider -- WHAT?!

[Riff Randell] Sure, I'll go out with you tonight.

[Kate Rambeau] [To Riff] You can't do that.
He's mine!
[Hits Riff repeatedly with a pillow]

[Tom Roberts] Uh, you will?

[Riff Randell] Just find a date for Kate, okay?

[Tom Roberts] Great! Great! I will! Listen, I'll pick you both up in about an hour.
[Hangs up phone]
[Claps his hands together]
We got it!
***

[Kate Rambeau] [To Riff] How can you go out with him?
[Hits Riff repeatedly with the pillow]

[Riff Randell] [Teasing Kate] You know, I never thought about Tom ...
until you mentioned him.

[Kate Rambeau] [Screeching] WHAT?!

[Riff Randell] I mean, maybe it would be a change for me, don't you think? I mean, I never went in much for the jock types!

[Kate Rambeau] Oh, cut it out!
[Hits her with the pillow again]

[Riff Randell] [Laughs]

[Kate Rambeau] But what about me? What about tonight?

[Riff Randell] Don't worry -- you'll be in the back seat with Eaglebauer! He's lots of fun!
[makes vomiting sounds and falls forward onto the bed]

[Kate Rambeau] I don't want to have fun! I want to be with Tom! [Hits Riff some more with the pillow]

[Riff Randell] [Laughs] Hey, I'm only kidding, Kate!
I wouldn't do that to you. Huh?
I'll take care of Eaglebauer, and you can have Tom all to yourself!
Hmmm?

[Kate Rambeau] You shouldn't kid like that, Riff.

[Riff Randell] [mocking Kate] "Ohhh, I shouldn't kid like that, Riff!" [Hits Kate back with the pillow]

[Kate Rambeau] You know how hot I am for him.

[Riff Randell] Hot?

[Kate Rambeau] Yes, hot!

[Riff Randell] Whoa, hot. Off the lips of Kate. My goodness.
[Laughs]

***

[Tom Roberts] [Laughing] Ha ha. We did it.
We did it! I got you a date with Kate!

[Riff Rambeau] Hot equals Joey Ramone.

[Kate Rambeau] No, hot equals Tom!

[Riff Randell] Ooooooh!

***

[Tom Roberts] Oh, man!
I can't believe it. I can't believe it was that easy!

[Eaglebauer] You gotta remember --

***

[Riff Randell] He looks like a little cherub or something. He looks like he's going to fly away to heaven.

[Kate Rambeau] Oh, God!

[Riff Randell] He's so sweet looking. Kind of like a cream puff.

[Kate Rambeau] That's why I like him. I like him.

[Riff Randell] Yeah, well, I like Joey Ramone because he's tall and handsome. He looks like a poem to me.

[Kate Rambeau] A poem?

***

[Eaglebauer] Hey, we got to --

[Tom Roberts] We get them drunk, we go in the back, we get in the waterbed!

[Eaglebauer] We got to take turns in the back!

[Tom Roberts] Okay.

***

[Riff Randell] All he eats is pizza! I just love the way he just holds the pizza dripping above his mouth ...
He just slithers and slides it into his mouth, and it's so sexy the way it [makes a slithering/sliding noise]

[Kate Rambeau] Oooh, gross!

[Music] "Questioningly"
by The Ramones

Questioningly ...
her eyes looked at me
And then she spoke aren't you someone I used to know
And weren't we lovers a long time ago?
Looked at her close forced her into view
Yes, I said, you're a girl
That I once may have knew
But I don't love you anymore
Why do you want to talk to me for?
You should have just let me walk by
Memories make us cry
In the morning, I'm at work at time
My boss he tells me that I'm doing fine
When I'm going home
Whiskey bottle movie on T.V.
Memories make me cry
And I'm alone just me
Just me, Questioningly
But I dont love you anymore...
Looked at her close...
Questioningly her eyes looked at me..

[Music] "So It Goes"
by Nick Lowe

I remember one night, the kid cut off his right arm
in a fit to save a bit of power.
He got fifty thousand watts
in a big acoustic tower.
Security's so tight tonight,
oh, and they're ready for a tussle.
Gotta keep your backstage passes,
'cause the promoter had the muscle.
And so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
but where it's going,
no one knows.
And so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
but where it's going,
no one knows.
In the tall buildings sit the head of armed nations,
worthy men from Spain and Siam.
All day discussions with the Russians
but they still went ahead and vetoed the plan.
Now up jumped the U.S. Representative.
He's the one with the tired eyes.
747 for the midnight condition,
flying back for my peacekeeper mission.
And so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
but where it's going,
no one knows.
And so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
but where it's going,
no one knows.
And in the air, there's after shave lotion
in the wake of a snaky Persian.
On his arm is a skintight vision,
wonder why she ain't mine, she's his.
And so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
but where it's going,
no one knows.
And so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
and so it goes,
but where it's going,
no one knows.
But where it's going,
no one knows.

And I think it would be tidy ...
if they wore neckties.

[Fritz Hansel & Gretel] [Gulp]

[Miss Togar] And lunch is to be cut down to half an hour ...

on silent study hall.

[Fritz Hansel & Gretel] [Make OMG faces at each other]

I think that should teach them a lesson in deportment.

[Miss Togar] D-e-portment.

I would just like to say one thing:
Screw you Principal Togar, we made it to the concert anyway!

More wheat germ and riboflavin.
Yeah, come on, Joey -- eat! Good!
Look, I'm going to eat some myself.
Yum, yum.
Organic alfalfa sprouts.
Come on, now. Good.
Yum. Come on, eat Joey. Good boy. Yeah. Mama will love you. You like it? Huh? Huh? Good? Yeah! Iron, niacin, B-12.

[Riff Randell] [Smells pizza lovingly]

[To Riff] Okay! Okay, girlie! The boys will take a look at them ...
and get back to you tomorrow.

PART 4 OF 4

[VINCE LOMBARDI HIGH SCHOOL: "WINNING IS BETTER THAN LOSING"]

[Miss Togar] And I say to you parents ...
this high school is a failure.
The past semester has been ...
a black mark on the proud tradition of Vince Lombardi High.
Student Riff Randell alone has disrupted classes --

[Riff Randell] You can't say I haven't contributed anything!

[Miss Togar] And banded the students against me ...
to attend a concert of the Ramones --

[Students] [Cheering]

[Miss Togar] -- that awful rock and roll music.
You see before you my first major step ...
in putting this school back on the winning track.
I give you ...
the final solution!

[Students] [Screaming]

[Riff Randell] [Pointing] Those are our records!

[Parents] [Form a fence around the students preventing them from getting their records]

[Tom Roberts] [Throws his football at Miss Togar]

[Football hits her foot]
[And bounces onto the ground]

[Miss Togar] And this is what we think of The Ramones.
[Lights the album on fire and holds it up]

[Man] We've got to stop her!

[Riff Randell] Hey, stop her! She can't do that!

[Fritz Hansen & Gretel] [Pour lighter fluid over the albums]

[Students] [Screaming]

[Mr. McGree] Miss Togar!
I cannot stand by and allow you to do this!

[Miss Togar] Then stand aside, Mr. McGree.

[Riff Randell] [To the parents] Let me through!

[Miss Togar] [Lights the record collection on fire]

[Man] She's burning our records!
We got to stop her!

[Riff Randell] [Breaks free of the parents' restraint]
[Picks up punch bowl ...
and throws it at Miss Togar] Togar!

[Miss Togar] Ack!
That's the last straw, Randell! Detention -- for life!

[Riff Randell] [Laughing]

[Music] "School's Out"
by Alice Cooper

School's out for summer
School's out forever


[Kate Rambeau and Tom Roberts] [Put out the fire with a hose]

[Fritz Hansel] [To Miss Togar who has fallen on the ground] My darling Evelyn ...
how I long for the feel of your luscious thighs.

[Man] See you later, Togar.

[Fritz Hansel & Gretel] [Take Miss Togar to safety]

[Man] She's going to call the cops!

[Alice Cooper singing] No more pencils
No more books


[Riff Randell] [To The Ramones] Hey, come on, you guys. Follow me into the school. Come on!

[Students] [Trying to retrieve burned albums]

[Alice Cooper singing] No more teacher's dirty looks
Out for summer
Out till fall
We might not go back at all
School's out forever
School's out for summer
School's out with fever
School's out completely


[Mr. McGree] I regret that I have only one life to give for rock and roll.

[Riff Randell] [To Mr. McGree] Come on into the school with us, Mr. McGree.
Come on!

[Joey Ramone] [To Johnny] Things sure have changed since we got kicked out of high school

[Johnny Ramone] [Sticks his guitar into Miss Togar's butt]

[Miss Togar] Ohh!
Oh, where are you going?

[Joey Ramone] We're going to Mr. McGree's class.

[Miss Togar] Oh! Well, I'm happy to see that some students are interested in their studies.

[Marky pastes "KICK ME HARD" sign onto Togar's back]

[Johnny Ramone] Hey, we're not students, we're the Ramones.

[Miss Togar] Ramones! You're responsible for making that horrible rock and roll music?
You've turned the whole school against me!

[Johnny Ramone] [Waves his hand dismissively at her and walks away]

[Students] [Screaming, lower "Rock N Roll High School" banner from the window]

[Miss Togar] [To the Ramones] Do your parents know that you're Ramones?

[Joey Ramone] [Waves at students]

[Students] [Scream and holler]

[Students] [Yelling]

[Riff Randell] [To the Ramones] Come on in!
[Jumps over the counter]
[Speaking into the intercom] Rock and Roll High School is on the air again!
[Plays the record]

[Music] "High School"
by The Vindictives

Woh, come on!
Woh, come on!
The kids want a little action

[Girl] [To Fritz Hansel & Gretel] We've got you now!

[Mr. McGree] [Dancing with Riff]

[Miss Togar] Call the National Guard!
They're causing a riot!
These kids are going to --

[Mrs. Mouse] The National Guard?! My children are inside that school! Oh, dear!

[Sign: QUIET: WHITE MICE PRESENT
"The best laid plans of mice and men oft go astray"]
[White mice explode in their cages]


[Vindictives singing] The kids know what the deal is
They're getting farther out everyday
We're gonna be takin' over
You better get out of the way
'Cause we're goin' to
(High school) rah, rah, rah

[Music] "Come On, Let's Go"

Well, come on, let's go, let's go, little darlin'
Tell me that you'll never leave me
Come on, come on, let's go again
Go again and again
Well, now, swing me, swing me, swing me, little darlin'
Come on, let's go, little darlin'
Let's go, let's go again once more
Well, I love you, babe
And I'll never let you go
Come on, baby, so, oh, pretty baby, I love you so
Well, let's go, let's go, let's go, little sweetheart
Forever we can always be together
Come on, come on, let's go again
Oh, well, I love you, babe
And I'll never let you go
Come on, baby, so, oh, pretty baby, I love you so
Well, come on, let's go, let's go, little darlin'

Again, again, and again
Again, again, and again
Again, again, and again


[Ramones & Gang] [Push Fritz Hansel & Gretel out of the 2nd story window]

[Fritz Hansel & Gretel] [Praying]

[Adults] [Watch Fritz Hansel & Gretel fly out the window]

[Miss Togar] [Turns away from the spectacle]

[Students] [Yelling & Screaming] [Mocking Fritz Hansel & Gretel] Demerit, demerit, demerit, demerit, demerit ...
[Throw other stuff out the window]

[Riff Randell] [To The Ramones] So, what do you think of my school, guys?

[Johnny Ramone] Boy, when you have recess, you really go all out!

[Riff Randell] Consider yourselves officially enrolled in Rock N Roll High School.
The facilities are yours.
Do whatever you want!

[Music] "Do You Wanna Dance"
by The Ramones

Do you wanna dance and hold my hand?
Tell me, baby, I'm your lover man, oh baby, do you wanna dance?
Do you wanna dance under the moonlight?
Squeeze me baby all through the night, oh baby, do you wanna dance?
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance ?
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance?
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance?
Do you wanna dance under the moonlight?
Squeeze me baby all through the night, oh baby, do you wanna dance?
Do you wanna dance under the moonlight?
Squeeze me baby all through the night ...
oh baby, do you wanna dance?
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance?
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance?
Do you, do you, do you ...

[Eaglebauer] [To Kate & Tom] Go on! Get out there! Yeah!

[Ramones singing] Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance?
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance?
Do you, do you, do you ...

[Cheryl [Shaking her tits]

[Ramones singing] Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance?
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance?


[Kate Rambeau] [Jumps into Tom's arms]

[Crowd] [Screaming and yelling]

[Tom Roberts] [Kisses Kate]

[Eaglebauer] [Makes right-on sign with his fingers]

[Miss Togar] [On bullhorn] Attention!
[To Fritz Hansel] Give it to me!
Attention students! Attention students!

[Riff Randell] Hey, quiet! Quiet, everyone. Listen!

[Miss Togar] This is your principal, Miss Evelyn Togar!
I want to speak to Riff Randell!

[Riff Randell] I'm going into my office.

[Police Chief] I don't think it's working.

[Miss Togar] You don't think it's working?

[Riff Randell] Start talking, Togar. It's your dime.

[Miss Togar] Okay, Randell. I know we've had our differences in the past
But I think it's time we tried to understand one another.
I think the problem is clear.

[Students and Mr. McGree] [Nodding their heads to the clarity]

[Miss Togar] I am a reasonable, well-educated ...
mature, adult member of society ...

[Riff Randall] [Blowing a rasberry]

[Miss Togar] ... and you are a spoiled, heathen punk who has taken over my school.

[Fritz Hansel & Gretel] [Working the applause signs]

[Cops & Parents] [Clapping]

[Students] [Scream and yell]

[Miss Togar] [Raises her hand to stop applause]
So let's make a deal! I could have you expelled and turned over to the police.

[Police Chief] [Excited] Huhh!!!

[Miss Togaar] But I'm going to forget about that.

[Police Chief] [Disappointed] Oh!!

[Miss Togar] And just put one black mark ...
on your permanent record ...

[Riff Randall] [Puts one permanent mark on her record, and throws it aside]

[Miss Togar] ... a record that will follow you throughout the rest of your life ...

[Students] [Booing]

[Miss Togar] ... if you'll just come out of there ...
right now!

[Riff Randell] [Salutes Miss Togar]

[Students yelling] "No"

[Riff Randell] [To Eaglebauer, Kate & Tom] Well, I think one more black mark isn't going to make too much of a difference.

[Tom Roberts] [Throws paper aside]

[Eaglebauer] [To Riff] Eaglebauer Enterprises comes through again.
[Gives her a chainsaw]

[Riff Randell] Alright!
[Starts the chainsaw]
Here's what I think about your school records, Togar!
[Chainsaws her school records]

[Police Chief] You handled that very well, Miss Togar!
[Fists her chin gently]

[Miss Togar] [Lowers her head shyly]

[Riff Randell] [Making screaming sounds]
[Sawing paper up]

[Police Chief] What's that?

[Miss Togar] I don't know!

[Riff Randell] Here you go, Togar.
[Throws shredded documents out the window]
[Laughing]

[Eaglebauer] [Laughing]
[Throws shredded documents out the window]
Yahooo! Yahooo!

[Students] [Throw shredded documents out the window]
[Scream & holler]

[Miss Togar] Well, now they've done it! Destroying government property!

[Police Chief] I think you failed, Miss Togar. I think we're going to have to do it my way.

[Miss Togar] I think you're right.

[To Riff] Randell, I just talked to the Chief of Police. If you're not out of there in five minutes, he's going to storm the building!

***

[Screamin' Steve] Well, you heard it folks!
Miss Togar has just given the students of Rock N Roll High ...
an ultimatum ...
a classic confrontation ...
between mindless authority and the rebellious nature of youth.
The moment of truth is at hand: What will these kids do next?

***

[Chemicals bubbling]

[Kate Rambeau] [Pours chemicals into chemicals]
[Tightens stopcock]
[Fire starts]

***

[Johnny Ramone] [To Riff] Boy, this sure is Rock N Roll High School.

[Joey Ramone] Yeah, we liked it so much, we're going to play it on our next album.
To show our appreciation ...
we're going to make you an honorary Ramone.

[Riff Randell] Oh, thanks!

[Joey Ramone] [Places a leather jacket around her shoulders]

[Johnny and Dee Dee] [Raise their guitars in honor to Riff]

[Mr. McGree] Hey, guys. You know, people say that your music is loud and destructive and lethal to mice ...
... but I think you're the Beethovens of our time.

[Marky] [Pokes at Mr. McGree] That was a good one, Mr. McGree!

[Kate Rambeau] [Finishes her explosion alchemy]

[Kate leaves the room with the detonator while the reaction gets going]

[Riff Randell] [To Kate] Is it ready to go?

[Kate Rambeau] It's a go.

[Riff Randell] [To students] Alright! Everybody, follow me. We're going to evacuate!

[Miss Togar] [To Police Chief] I guess we should rush the building!

[Students] [Come out the front door]

[Chief of Police] Not so fast. Look!

[Miss Togar] They're coming out!
It's over!
We won!

[Screamin' Steve] Ladies and gentlemen: school is out!
It appears that the final bell has rung for these students.
Has Riff Randell given up?
Has she and her fellow classmates failed Miss Togar's final exam?
Is this the end of Rock N Roll High?

[Miss Togar] And just what do you have to say for yourself, young lady?

[Riff Randell] I have seen the errors of my ways.
I'd just like to say to all students everywhere that you may think the school is yours for awhile, but it's always run by the principal and her administration.

[Miss Togar] Oh, that's nice!

[Riff Randell] Vince Lombardi High ...
is your school, Miss Togar. So you can have it!

[Miss Togar] Well, I'm very happy to see that you've come to your senses.
And what would you have done with the school anyway?

[Riff Randell] Rock the roof off it!
Hit it, Marky!
