"Dear Diary, my teen-angst bullshit now has a body count."

Before Diablo Cody made talking in a teenage lingo mean dropping in dated Internet references as often as you can, Daniel Waters perfected the art of bitchy high school teen speak dialog in his screenplay for HEATHERS.

"What's your damage?"

"Where's your urge to purge?"

"If you wanna fuck with the eagles, you've gotta learn to fly!"

This is the movie that established the teen black comedy as the ultimate way of viewing high school, and way before Lindsay Lohan learned about a new way to play through the social politics of the clique system in MEAN GIRLS, Christian Slater taught Winona Ryder that there are much more... physical ways of handling queen bees.

This movie may not be as chock full of one-liners as some of the Mel Brooks types of comedies we've done as Quote-Alongs in the past, but the magic of hearing everyone say, "Lick it up, baby. Lick. It. Up," all in unison should be magical enough. And if that line alone isn't enough, "I love my dead gay son!" will clearly make this show worthy of surviving our adolescence for. And choosing whether or not to kill yourself when you were a teenager was one of the most important decisions you made!

We'll start the show with a lunch time poll, have some puke available should you need to pay anyone back for getting you into a Remington party, a "Draino" cocktail on the menu, and have plenty of CornNuts for everyone! Teenage suicide: don't do it. (Henri Mazza)
