Ray, the kids have to be picked up soon.
Can you go get them? I just sat down.

Ray, why didn't you tell me about this? 'Cause I'm not going, okay? Only losers go to those things.
Thank you.
I'm planning on going to my 20th.
Does that make me a loser? Four years away, and you're already planning it? Ray, you should really think about going, you know? It's like your own personaI twilight zone.

Scott Preman.
- Hello.
I was reading my yearbook before, and I want you to know that I do remember the good times in study hall and I did have an excellent summer.
I wrote that in his book.
Scott and I, we hung out a lot in high schooI.
Oh, man.
You remember when the Egg McMuffin came out? We snuck out of schooI and got three of them.
That was wild.
What was Ray like then? - He was crazy.
- What? - Yes.
- What? One time, we went to McDonald's.
He walked through the drive-through.
Here's him, he's like, "Honk-honk.
Hey, hurry it up.
It's taking too long.
" It was so the girI in the window would look at me.
- Did she look at you? - Not the way I planned it.
You remember that? Bald eagle, 3:00.
- Red Baron.
- Here you go, White Lightning.
White Lightning? - We had CB radios.
That was their handle.
- What was your handle? Warren, look who's here.
Man, Ray! Newsday's Ray Barone.
- How you doing, Warren? - You still going by Straight Shooter? Straight Shooter? Okay, shut up.
You guys remember Foxy Lady? - You idiots.
- Yeah.
This was great.
We used to talk to her all the time on the CB and then one night, we arranged to meet up with her.
And we pulled into the parking lot of HoJo's.
And we were in the parking lot and Foxy Lady, it turns out, is Mrs.
Drayer from the cafeteria.
She was the lunch lady.
Ray wanted to moon her.
- You would've been such dead meat.
- Yeah.
- I'm going to let you guys all catch up.
- Where are you going? - I'm going to the ladies' room.
- Bring me back one.
- You have a wife.
- Yeah.
How about you guys? Married or You guys remember that time we all went into the girls' bathroom? I remember.
We were pushed in.
That's right.
Pete Hastings pushes us in, holds the door shut and you were crying.
Yeah? Scott cried during the SATs when he skipped a question by mistake - and all his answers were off by one.
- Yeah.
That wasn't funny, okay? I had to go to community college.
But you cried.
Yeah, right.
I know.
Man, look who's here.
Whoa! That's Jessica Bell.
- Ding-dong.
- Please come in.
Ring my bell She's coming.
She's coming this way, man.
I can't believe you talked to her.
She smells different now.
Ray, didn't you have bio class with her? Junior year? Yeah, we had dissection.
I pinned her frog open.
- Lucky dog.
- Yeah.
What's going on? What are you doing now? I'm a regionaI field rep for Burlington Hosiery.
Socks and sock-related items.
That's cooI.
I guess the hardest part of that is getting your foot in the door.
- I'm going to use that on my screensaver.
- Thank you.
Use it.
How about you? You still got that comic-book store? No, it burned down.
Now I'm studying to be a rabbi.
It's so frigging hard.
- Can we not talk about work? - All right.
Don't cry.
Are you guys having fun? - Yeah, just like old times.
- That's great.
I met a girI from your class, she said we should go sit at their table.
Yeah? All right.
Debra, why don't you come over? - Ray, you remember Jessica Bell? - Yeah, I think.
So this is Ray.
I didn't recognize you.
He pinned your frog back.
So, Debra, want to join us? I want you to meet everybody.
Come on.
Let's go.
Really nice to meet you guys.
- I'll see you guys later.
- Catch you on the flip-flop.
- The belle of the ball.
- Hey, Pete.
Wait, that's Pete Hastings.
Guys, I want you to meet Debra Barone.
- How's it going? - Hi.
And this is her husband Ray.
He was in our class.
I thought Ray Barone died in a car wreck right after graduation.
That was Jay Malone.
Jay Malone, yeah.
Now, he was a great guy.
- Here's to Jay.
- To Jay.
Wish you were here.
Deb, you got to come look at these pictures.
Want to see what my hair looked like Like Farrah? I was Dorothy Hamill.
- Where you going? - I'll be right back.
This is wild.
Ray, you're not Bobby Barone's brother, are you? Yeah.
Great basketball player.
What's he doing now? He's a cop.
Wow! That's great.
I'm a sportswriter.
I got a column in Newsday.
Wait a minute.
Ray Barone.
Now I know who you are.
I used to throw you in the girls' room all the time.
You remember that? Thanks.
So, how are you? - Here we go.
- I love this song.
- Do you remember the freak? - Yeah, and the hustle and the bump.
The bump.
- Jessica, come on, you ready? - Let's go.
- Come on, Ray, let's boogie.
- No, weddings only.
You know that.
Come on.
Ray, you're not going to dance? Would you like to dance? - Do you mind? - Sure.
- Great, thanks.
- Go boogie.
Shake, shake, shake Shake your booty - All right.
- What? Enough booty.
That was so much fun.
I just love dancing, you know? This is just in: disco sucks.
What, you didn't have a good time? Your friends are great.
Those people aren't my friends.
Who? Pete, Jessica, Chris, Steve, Wendy, and Jodie? What's wrong with them? They used to throw me into the girls' room.
They're very nice now.
- Yeah, to you.
- What? To you, they're nice.
You're one of them.
- What do you mean, I'm one of them? - You know Popular.
Ray, what's the matter? Are you mad at me for having a good time? You could've had a good time.
I asked you to dance.
- I don't like dancing.
- Yeah, but I do.
Yeah, I know that.
I know the whole class of '77 knows that.
Forgive me, but I'm not afraid to have a little bit of fun.
What a snobby, shallow, superficiaI, popular thing to say.
I'm trying to understand this.
You didn't like our table.
Where did you want to sit? On our couch at home.
And you're wondering why you weren't popular.
Ray, this is why I wanted to go to your reunion 'cause you never want to go anywhere.
You know something? There's something really wrong with somebody who has to be popular at somebody else's reunion.
You are such a nerd.
I knew it.
You think I'm a nerd.
Yeah? You know what you are? A cheerleader.
Go put in your retainer! God! I'm going to bed.
Here, let me translate that for you.
Give me a "B!" Give me an "E!" Give me a "D!" What's that spell? Hey, no MTV in this house.
What are you Give me that.
Popeye's great.
Nobody likes Popeye.
Why? 'Cause he's not cooI? Maybe you don't know Popeye.
Don't be so quick to judge.
"Nobody likes Popeye.
" Till Bluto's got you in a headlock.
Then what? Guy hangs out with Wimpy and Never mind.
Monster tattoo.
Just wanted to see what it looked like.
That's not nerdy.
I didn't say a thing.
Listen, I washed your gym stuff.
Your nose plugs went through the dryer.
Sundram said I have to wear those to prevent infections in my Eustachian tube.
Yes, Ray.
We all know you have sensitive tubes.
What's the matter? It's not cooI enough for you? What's a big medicaI problem with you? Ruptured booty? No, I've never ruptured my booty.
One time, I did sprain my groove thang.
- So, how was last night? - Oh, yeah, it was great.
A lot of people at the reunion asked about you.
Yeah? Remember Jessica Bell? Little Jessica.
Used to follow me around.
Good kid.
- You know, I think she liked you.
- Yeah? Her friends asked my friends to ask me to ask her out.
- You went out with Jessica Bell? - No, she was a freshman.
That would've been like me hanging out with you.
Pete Hastings, too.
Tough guy, right? Yeah, I remember him.
Got wise with me once.
I pushed him in the girls' room.
You know what you do? You hold the door closed so they can't get out.
- I know.
- Have you heard about it? So you had fun, right? Come on.
It was a good time? Don't ask me.
Ask her.
She's the dancing queen.
Really? Do the hustle.
Cut it out.
Stop it.
Robert, you've got the moves.
I got the music in me.
He needs an Indian and a construction worker, and you got an act.
Sorry, Robert.
Ray's a little cranky this morning.
He was up too late watching everybody else have fun.
I wasn't watching people have fun, all right? I was keeping an eye on the purses.
Pulling some nerd duty? Come on now, Robert Ray's as cooI as any guy with a stick-on tattoo and nose plugs.
Nose plugs.
Some of us aren't in high schooI.
We've moved on, okay? Let me ask you, does a nerdy guy go on the road with the New York Knicks? Depends if they need somebody to watch the purses.
That's very funny.
I don't care what you guys think, okay? I know what I am.
- Raymond, I got something for you to try on.
- What? I saw these in the catalog, and I thought they looked jazzy.
Ray, that's great.
Your mom bought you some short pants.
Very jazzy.
Look, Mom, I'm not wearing these pants, okay? Why not? They're very with-it.
Ray, if the shorts fit Yeah, you know what? Maybe the shorts do fit.
What's the matter with you? You were very happy when I bought you those pajamas.
Are you okay? Listen Would you Maybe I don't know.
Would you Do you wanna go dancing Saturday night? Dancing? You and me? Yeah, if you want.
- Well, we can't Saturday, but - Okay, fine.
- No, but maybe some other time.
- Yeah.
Some other time.
I've heard them all, okay? How about, "I can't.
I'm washing my hair"? Or, "I don't think of you that way.
" Or, "I'm not allowed to date Italians.
" Yeah, I get it, okay? I get it.
I'm a dork.
Ray, I can't go dancing with you Saturday because you're going to be out of town with the Knicks.
How convenient.
And I don't want you to go dancing with me just to prove to yourself that you're not a dork.
Well, I don't know how else to do it.
This is a mixed marriage.
I was just teasing you.
What are you so sensitive about? Look, you're one of the cooI people and I'm not.
Then why did I marry you? That's right.
Good question.
No, I'm asking you.
Why do you think I married you? I don't know.
Come on.
I'm nice.
What else? I have good hair.
I have a car.
You have your own car? It's my father's, but I can get it whenever I want.
How come I never see you in the cafeteria? 'Cause my mom makes me come home for lunch.
Wow! You're a good kisser.
I'm a lot better without the retainer.
- You know what I'm thinking? - What? You can't be such a dork if the cooI girI's about to sleep with you.
- Jessica Bell's coming over? - Stop it.
You ready? I just need a little tune-up, that's all.
Look, just relax, all right? Okay.
Look, can you do this? Good.
All right.
Okay, now how about this one? There you go.
Loosen up.
Shake it up.
That's it.
How about this? Let's work this in, 'cause I got this.
- Where did you learn that? - Church dance.
Okay, all right, check this out.
I can't do that.
