Movie Quote(s):
  • [Sally has bungled her gymnastics lesson] Coach George Michaels: What happened? Sally: I'm not sure. Coach George Michaels: What do you mean you're not sure? Sally: I don't know. Coach George Michaels: You broke your concentration, that's what happened! I've never seen anything so sloppy!
  • [Two teenagers flee the boiler room] Mr. Roberts: Come back here! Don't think I don't know who you are, because I do. Come on and show your face, you miserable scum!
  • Ronald Corliss: Why didn't you call us at the airport? I'd have picked you up. Anne Ramstead: I got here all right. Ronald Corliss: Yeah. I can see that.
  • Principal Guglione: What do you say I come by your place later on with a bottle of wine after you're finished. Hm? Blondie: You know something, Mr. Guglione? Principal Guglione: Hm? Blondie: You are a real bastard. [pause] Blondie: Make it around midnight.

Movie Trivia:
  • The blonde girl in the number 46 track jersey was cut out of the film as much as possible since she was fired due to refusal to fulfill the nudity requirements. Linnea Quigley was hired to replace her.
  • SPOILER: Towards the end of the film, when the dead bodies are discovered under the bleachers, Linnea Quigley's decapitated head is never found. This is because she hadn't been hired yet when they shot the scene. However, the decapitated head of the actress who she replaced remains in the scene.
