The first time I saw Fast Times, it was in the nun’s residence on my high school property. We used to be able to use their lounge area to spend time in during study hall as seniors, but we largely ended up watching films that would shock the nuns if they caught wind of them. Scandal at the Catholic high school! Hahahaha.

Here's some food for thought: I've noticed there's a similar theme shared between "Fast Times" and (my personal favorite) "Ferris Beuhler's Day Off". Both are focused on a single exceptional teenager who outwits their superiors in school and have hedonisitic sensibilities about life. The difference: While Spicoli represents the stoner/loser who lucks out in the en discd, Ferris represents the more sober yet clever rascal using every trick in the book to get his way.
