You look like a pumpkin, bitch!

  • A Threesome Is Hot: Zigzagged. Initially two girls fall in love sitting on either side of Adam, and he just looks like he's caught in their moment. Then he takes them back to his place but when he goes in for a kiss one of them pushes him away. All of this only to serves to reinforce Emma's jealousy of course and leads to a Crowning Moment of Funny as she drunkenly kicks them out of his house.
  • Wild Teen Party: In the beginning at the University of Michigan, where plenty of people are having sex with Anything That Moves.
