i definitely have to get the movie 'swingers' on dvd.

the first time i watched it was in northern california. san fransisco, to be exact. i had taken a road trip with rvx and tai – the three of us were staying at mad-boy's old apartment in san jose. i think it was one of those afternoons after a very hard night of partying, where we really just didn't want to move all that much.

so… we popped in this tape. and for the entire trip, we acted like goof-balls, telling each other how '$$MONEY$$!' we all were. yes, yes… i know… we did do this.

mad-boy: "dude… you're so money… and you don't even KNOW IT!"

but you see, all of us were single at the time. i think tai and i were dating others, but we weren't in a serious relationship. and so… you know… being young and foolish, well… we did young and foolish things. and apparently, telling each other how $$MONEY$$! we were was all part of that young and foolishness i speak of.

the best dialogue of the entire movie, though, was of the following:

Mike: So how long do I wait to call?
Trent: A day.
Mike: Tomorrow.
Sue: Tomorrow, then a day.
Trent: Yeah.
Mike: So two days?
Trent: Yeah, I guess you could call it that, two days.
Sue: Definitely, two days is like industry standard.
Trent: You know I used to wait two days to call anybody, but now it's like everyone in town waits two days. So I think three days is kind of money. What do you think?
Sue: Yeah, but two's enough not to look anxious.
Trent: But I think three days is kind of money. You know because you…
Mike: Yeah, but you know what, maybe I'll wait 3 weeks. How's that? And tell her I was cleaning out my wallet and I just happened to run into her number.
Charles: Then ask her where you met her.
Mike: Yeah, I'll ask her where I met her. I don't remember. What does she look like? And then I'll asked if we f-d. Is that… would that be… T, would that be the money?
Trent: You know what. Ha ha ha Mike, laugh all you want but if you call too soon you might scare off a nice baby who's ready to party.
Mike: Well how long are you guys gonna wait to call your babies?
Trent, Sue: Six days.
