Corey: Brains stick with brains. The bomb could go off and their mutant genes would form the same cliques.
Mike Cameron: This is one fresh jam. Listen, God, I dont know you very well, but I wanted to ask you: how’d you get Diane Court to go out with you?
Lloyd: I called her up.
Mike: Yeah, but how come it worked? I mean, like, what are you?
Lloyd: I’m Lloyd Dobler.
Mike: This is great. This gives me hope. Thanks.
Diane: You dont like old people?
Lloyd: Me? Sure I do.
Diane: Come on.
Lloyd: Well, except for one thing. I worked at a smorgasbord, and the old people would flock there, and they loved to eat, and they’d just jam their mouths, you know? And they’d just eat with their mouths open, and to be honest, it was too much for me. You get to be thinking about how short life is, and how maybe everything has no meaning, because you wake up, and you’re frying burgers, and you’re like 60, 70, and then you check out, you know? What are you doing? And I dont need to be thinking about those kind of things. Thats the reason……But I’m not sure about all that.
Diane: I think that’s ageism, and that’s being prejudiced against people because they’re old.
Lloyd: Really? Well, you’re really turning me around here.
Constance: Why do you eat that stuff? There’s no food in your food.
Lloyd: A career? I’ve thought about this quite a bit sir and I would have to say considering what’s waiting out there for me, I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything or process anything as a career. I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed or buy anything sold or processed or repair anything sold, bought or processed as a career. I don’t want to do that. My father’s in the army. He wants me to join, but I can’t work for that corporation, so what I’ve been doing lately is kick-boxing, which is a new sport…as far as career longevity, I don’t really know. I can’t figure it all out tonight, sir, so I’m just gonna hang with your daughter.
