Liz, we have got to do something about this curfew thing.
I feel like I'm always saying good night to you.
We hardly have any time alone.
Well, we don't have to worry about it this weekend.
My parents are going out of town.
Great.
So am I.
I have to spend the weekend with my cousins in Oxton.
Why? My house is being painted.
You're kidding.
I wish I was.
You haven't met my cousins.
They polka.
I was hoping to spend all our time together this weekend.
Well, maybe we still can.
What are you talking about? I can move in with you.
Yeah, right.
That'll go over real big with my parents.
Who's gonna tell them? Come on, it'll be fun.
Todd, I don't know.
Don't you trust me? Of course I do, but I just don't know Fine.
But if I come back with an accordion I can't believe the Soundgarden concert's all sold out.
I'd do anything to see that show.
I know.
I'm sorry, Morgan.
I tried all my connections.
But don't worry.
I'll talk to Winston.
He always has tickets.
Hmm.
Winston, do you still have those Soundgarden tickets? Third row center.
I wanna go.
Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but am I the last man on earth? Not with you.
I need to buy them.
I wanna take Morgan Gethers.
I thought he was going with Lila.
So does Lila.
Hey, Todd, I ran into Coach, uh Schultz.
Yeah.
He was looking for his star goalie something about bench-pressing three-pointers or something? What? Just beat it.
I get the hint.
Later, Gethers.
Sure.
What's up? Do you have any plans for Sunday night? Well, Lila's still trying to get us tickets.
You mean, she didn't tell you? What? She got 'em.
No way.
To Swan Lake.
I just talked to her.
She's been trying to find you.
Swan Lake? Isn't that ballet? I hate ballet.
Then don't go.
I'm gonna need a good reason.
Tell her you're going to Soundgarden with me.
I thought my parents were never gonna get on that plane.
I know.
I have been thinking about this all week.
Alone at last.
Which one should I wear to the concert? Purple is Morgan's favorite color.
You're right.
Purple.
Thanks.
Ooh Calvins.
It's not what you think.
Todd's gonna sleep on the couch.
The king and queen of self-control.
But aren't you afraid of what Mom and Dad will think? You're not gonna tell them.
Me? Would I do that? You're my sister.
I'd never dream of telling on you.
Thanks, Jess.
As long as I can throw a party tomorrow night.
Mom said no parties.
Call it a gathering.
Whatever.
That's a big whatever.
So, is Todd sleeping over? A small gathering.
Small.
Very small.
One other thing.
The credit card Mom left you? I need a new outfit.
It's only for emergencies.
Having the perfect dress is always an emergency.
But how will you explain it to Mom? She'll never know.
I'll take the dress back the next day, and they'll take it off the bill.
I do it all the time.
Sometimes you amaze me.
Believe me, the feeling's mutual.
We're gonna have a great weekend.
Every decision I make after now Is up to you to decide, oh, my, my All that's mine is yours All that's yours is mine 'Cause, darlin', we're on our We're on our own We're on our We're on our own Aah! I don't need anything When you're by my side All that's mine is yours All that's yours is mine 'Cause, darlin', we're on our We're on our own now We're on our We're on our own now That'll be 42.
69.
Todd, do you have any money? I've only got $30.
Uh, sure.
A ten? That's it? Well, something's gotta go back.
Well, this can go.
We need it.
Um Not these.
They're my favorite.
I always get in the wrong line.
Nope.
Todd, hurry up.
Pick something.
No, we've gotta have that.
Tabouleh? Come on, who needs tabouleh? What is tabouleh? This.
Not my Crispy Chunky-O's.
OK, now, don't peek.
You ready? It's beautiful.
To us.
To us.
Oh, it's showtime.
It smells wonderful.
Do you need any help? Ow.
God.
No problem.
I got it.
This is so cool.
I'm learning so much about you.
I never knew you knew how to cook.
What's to know? You grab some stuff, toss it in a dish, throw it in the oven, and voila.
Nothin' to it.
Well, there's a little more to it than that, Todd.
Oh, yeah, it does help to preheat the oven to 350.
I hope you like this.
I saw them make it on Kathie Lee and Regis.
I've never had chicken like this before.
That's 'cause That's 'cause it's veal.
Oh.
Now you see why I needed the Crispy Chunky-O's.
Really gives the coating some zip.
I can't eat this.
Fine.
Don't.
Why is it so dark in here? Great.
Well, isn't this quaint.
What do you want, Jess? Ew.
Well, don't do anything I wouldn't do.
Not a chance of that, now, is there? Why don't we forget about dinner and just enjoy being alone together.
All right.
TV? Sure.
Anything special you want to watch? Oh, whatever.
Darling, when you walked through that door, I knew my life would never be the same.
I love you and I always will.
Oh, I just love these old movies.
What else is on? All right.
The big game.
Oh, man, they're down by two.
Todd, do we have to watch this? There's only a minute left.
So, what do you want to do tomorrow? Yes! A three-pointer.
Yeah.
What did you say? I was hoping Go, Lakers.
Go.
Come on, come on.
No! Oh, yes, a steal.
Come on.
I was hoping we could grind up some glass and feed it to each other.
Fine.
Sounds great.
Come on, come on.
Yes! Yes! Yeah.
Yeah.
Whoo! Yes.
Whew.
Go, Lakers! Come on! Come on.
Come on.
Todd, what are you doing? It's 2am.
I was thirsty.
What? Uh-huh.
Of course we don't want to invite the same people, Lila, but this can't be a big party.
If I get caught, I'll be grounded forever.
Don't worry, Jess.
You can count on me.
Just a select few.
Right.
Bye.
Big party tonight.
Here's the address.
Invite all your friends.
Cool.
Big, big party tonight.
Here's the address.
Bring all your friends.
Big party tonight.
There's the address.
Bring all your friends.
What's going on? Todd, what is your problem? I can't find the sports page.
What did you do with it? I threw it out with the coffee grounds.
What? You watched 57 hours of sports yesterday.
What score could you possibly not know? But I always read the sports.
What have we here a lovers' spat? We don't have time for this, kids.
And, Todd, while you're living with civilized people, try acting like one.
Who died and put you in charge? Do what I say, deadbeat, or the honeymoon's over.
Is that the emergency outfit? $200 worth.
What do you think? It goes back tomorrow, and so does Todd.
He's driving me crazy.
That's probably Lila.
She said she'd come over early and set up.
She's been a big help.
After you stole Morgan from her? Is it my fault she can't keep a guy? Yeah, most of the time.
Look, Liz, what do you say we just get out of here? What about the party? We need to spend some time alone together.
Maybe there's still hope for this weekend.
Yeah, I guess I can trust Jess with a few friends.
Come on! Oh, my God.
I know it's a few more people than you expected, but I'm sure someone that can get sold-out concert tickets can handle it.
Who are they? I hardly know any of them.
I would have brought more, but Sweet Valley U's on break.
That's a great outfit, Jess.
My favorite color.
I know.
I mean, what a coincidence.
Let's go meet some people.
Now, kids, don't try this at home.
Oh, my God.
Where did all these people come from? Get rid of them.
Liz, you're overreacting.
Besides, they just got here.
This whole weekend has been a total disaster.
Thanks.
You have to admit, this isn't exactly what we had in mind.
And you're blaming me? Fine.
I know when I'm not wanted.
I'll pack my things.
Fine.
Go with him, Liz.
You're just gonna ruin the party.
Todd.
Hey, Todd, check this out.
Winston, don't! Ohh! Whoa! Ugh! My dress! Now look what you've done.
Liz, come on, open up.
This is stupid.
Liz? Liz! I talked to Winston.
I'm staying at his place tonight.
Fine.
Fine.
So, I'll get my stuff.
Whatever.
It didn't have to be this way, you know.
Well, excuse me for not getting into Wilkins' Wild World of Sports.
What's that supposed to mean? You've treated me horribly all weekend.
Oh, like cooking you a gourmet meal that you trashed.
Todd, let's not start this again.
You got it.
I hope you two are happy.
It's ruined.
There's no way they'll take it back now.
What about the 200 bucks? How are you gonna pay for this? Me? The credit card was your responsibility.
You used it.
Who gave it to me? This is your problem, not mine.
Maybe if you thought more like me for a change, you wouldn't be in this mess.
I can't believe this.
We'll figure something out.
I thought you were leaving.
I said I was leaving, but I didn't say I was leaving you.
This is my fault, too.
Todd, what are we gonna do? For starters, let's think like Jess.
5, 4 3, 2 Aah! I can't find my concert tickets.
I'll look upstairs, you guys look down here.
Tear the place apart if you have to.
It won't help, Jess.
Morgan's gonna be here any minute.
You won't find them.
Well, if you'd get up and help You won't find them, 'cause I sold them.
You what? I had to pay off the credit card before Mom and Dad got back.
You told her to think like you, Jess.
Thanks for the advice.
I'm never gonna talk to you again.
What kind of threat is that? What do you want? I don't have time right now.
Cranky, are we? Actually, I just stopped by to thank Liz.
For what? Third row, center.
Liz, you didn't.
I did.
Of course, you know it meant that I had to give up tickets to Swan Lake.
Well, as much as I've enjoyed this, we really must be off.
"We"? Hey, Jess, thanks for the concert tickets.
Sorry you got sick.
You look great for someone with the stomach flu, though.
Stomach flu? It was either that or ringworm.
Ciao! And remember plenty of fluids.
I can't believe you guys.
Now I'll never get Morgan.
Don't worry, Jess.
You're still going to the concert.
What are you talking about? That.
You've got to be kidding.
Wow, Jess, you look great.
Don't tell me.
You've got more tickets.
Right next to Lila and Morgan.
Are you ready to go? Thanks, but I'd rather be deep fried.
If that's the way you want it.
What? Gimme the keys to the jeep.
Sorry.
It's completely out of gas.
Oh, sure.
It's true, Jess.
We coasted it into the driveway bone dry.
Why didn't you fill it up? Gee, I really wanted to, but I was out of cash.
Somebody had the emergency credit card.
Winston? Winston! Winston, wait.
Where are you going with my flowers? Winston! Wait! Well, I guess I better get my bag.
Yeah.
Todd, wait.
I said a lot of things this weekend that I didn't mean, and I'm sorry.
Me too.
It's just, every time I turned around, you were there.
I know.
I never thought we'd really get on each other's nerves.
Me neither.
Turns out living together is a lot harder than I thought.
Yeah, I guess we didn't realize what we were getting into.
No, but we will next time.
Let's get out of here.
Why bother? We've finally got the place to ourself.
Kids? Oh, my God.
We're home.
My parents! They're home early.
