Failure To Launch

Tripp finds out about Paula's deal with his parents and goes sulking at the boatyard, while Paula gets ready to move back in with *her* parents. Their friends come up with a plan to make them reconcile - by abducting Tripp and locking him up at Ace's house with Paula - and it works.Paula and Tripp get their own boat, Ace (who actualy owns his own house) and Kit get together, Demo goes hiking through the Amazon with his new girlfriend, and Tripp's parents are finally rid of him.


Deliberate mistake: At one point they use a Red Ryder BB gun (Yes, just like in A Christmas Story) and the guy says "You pumped it more than twice, didn't you" to his female counterpart when they shoot the bird. Red Ryder BB guns cannot be cocked/pumped more than once, due to the simple nature of the toy gun that it is.

Tripp: It's over. She gotta go.
Ace: You're dumping Paula?
Demo: What happened?
Tripp: Same thing that always happens. Everything is going along nice and smooth, we're having a good time, and all of a sudden, out of nowhere - whoap! - she gets serious. I hate to say it, boys, but it is time to take the girl home.
