  • (Kevin Bacon) "I'll tell you, there was this place called the Blue Heaven. It was great. Had to steal IDs to get in, but it was incredible. It was like a huge underground circus, you know. Hot pink neon climbin' up the walls. And astro music. And millions of girls, like from the university mostly. If we could get one to dance, just one, then that was it.

She says we can't go to her place 'cause of her roommate, right? But she says, ''Hey, that's no problem.'' She's got seats in the car that recline back. All the way back.; If you know what I'm saying.; All the way? Would I s*** you? Right? She rips my shirt open. She's clawing my chest. She's biting my neck, and I'm trying to get over the stick shift -- 'cause we're goin' like a freight train now. All of a sudden, she starts screaming at the top of her lungs -- ''Oh, God. Oh, God. Don't stop. Make Ginger pop.''"
