- "You're paining me!"
- Screech's little cousin at the wedding. Poor thing. I hope she grew out of that awkward stage...
- 90's fashion. It makes the 80's look good.
- Denzel Washington laying on the bed looking like a schoolboy sneaking to get on his parents' phone line. Ha!
- The sex scene. Once you've seen Denzel's upper thigh--which is laden with hair I might add--there's no going back.
