ok, the last question. nitroglycerin, calcium carbonate,and aluminum nitrate are ingredients commonly found in... lasagna. come on, alex. what's the real answer? i'll answer that question if you answer this one. name one reason why i shouldn't kiss you. we have to study, your family's home, it's getting late-- rache, one reason. i can't thinkof one. dynamite. thank you. i do my best. alex,that was the answer.

i know. i'm a shoo-in. i fed my stats into the school computer. it printed out, "write that speech." oh, alex.these last four weeks have been the mostexciting in my whole life. me, too. wait. we've been seeing each other for six weeks. the first twoweren't that great. how's the studying going? we're sponges in a sea of chemical knowledge. i hope you'll clean upafter yourselves. how do you feel? soon you'll be graduates. it feels great,mrs. keaton. i know alexis excited, too. that's right. and although we eagerly cast our... our lines of hope into the unchartered waters of our future... it's with a heavy heart...
to the hallowed halls of harding high. seniors whose last names begin with "a" through "j" please step forward. if our names beganwith the same letter, we could marchdown the aisle together. that sounds nice. how come we neverdated until recently? what could i havebeen thinking about? joselyn clark and deena marks and carrie newman-- ok, ok, ok, rache. seniors whose names begin with letters "k" through "t" please step forward. that's us. before we proceed with the graduation rehearsal, i have an announcement. the faculty has just chosen the valedictorian. i'm so proud of you! so join me in congratulating the brightest and best among us, our most deserving new valedictorian...
alex, are you all right? don't worry about me. this is your big moment. i'm happy for you. come up here and take a bow, rachel. i never even thoughti was in the running. no more pencils,no more...books. hi! last day of school! look, i gotmy final grades. oh, mal. that's wonderful. "a" in french,"b" in english, and some other stuff. we'll talk about that other stuff later. how'd you do, alex? four as. an "a" minus. honey, that is terrific. oh, come on, mom. what does itmean really? i am not valedictorian.
it's an anticlimax. let's face it. my life has no meaning. hey, i'm readyto face it. how about you guys? jennifer. ok, ok, i'm going. i know you'redisappointed aboutthis valedictorian thing, but you're not goingto get everythingyou want in life. being valedictorian was my destiny. it was ruthlessly yanked from my grasp by the cruelest of fates. that's the spirit. [knock on door] yeah. alex? hi, rachel. so, how you doing, alex? oh, fine, fine. never better. get your final grades?
how were they? let's not talk about it. no, come on,come on. how were they? five as. sure.rub my nose in it. so what's up? i hope my being chosen valedictorian won't affect our relationship. oh, no.of course not. don't be silly... smarty-pants. alex! i'm kidding.i'm kidding. give me creditfor a littlematurity here, ok? what's that? well, i finished my rough draft of my speech, and i was wondering if you'd look at it and give me your opinion. sure. why not?
ha ha! what? is something funny? yeah. you splityour infinitive. where? several places here. you do thatwhen you speak. i noticed thatabout you. what about the speech? i mean overall. it's not bad. it won'toffend anybody. i want to do more than not offend. i want to be inspiring. did you think it was inspiring? i'd hate to send peopleoff to war with that. well, how do i make it more inspiring? ok.all right, rache.
as we,the graduating seniorshere at harding high, attempt to go... aren't you goingto write this down? i don't want you to dictate a speech. i want suggestions, but i want the heart of it to be my own. oh, well, fine. just, uh, go withwhat you have there then. alex. is, uh... something wrong? what do youwant from me? you're the valedictorian! you obviouslyhave your own ideas! why are you eveninvolving me in this? well, i was foolish enough to think you'd help me. if it were me, i'd help you. if it were me,i wouldn't need your help. well, maybe i don't need your help either.
what are you doing? just looking at some baby pictures of alex. there he iswith his combinationslide rule/teething ring. he was a beautiful baby. and tomorrow he's graduating. it all went so fast. now, elyse, don't gomisting up on me. you've still gottwo in the nest. oh, i got the watchback from the jeweler. it's workingperfectly now. it'll be a wonderful gift for alex. i'll never forgetthe day my fathergave this to me. he came home fromthat dry-cleaning shopwhere he worked. he handed me thisand said, "i want you to have thisfor your graduation.
[sniff] uh... what is it, alex? dad, i, uh... i don't know how to say this, but, uh... this isn't easy for me. but, uh.. i think the cleveland browns will really miss brian sipe next year, don't you? uh...yes, i do. it was very sensitiveof you to keep thatfrom your mother. well, i figured she's a big browns fan. dad, i really blew it with rachel yesterday. you mentionedthis brian sipething to her, too?
this valedictorian thing really threw me off. i was a real jerk. why don't youapologize to her? that's not going to solve the problem. this will change our relationship forever. well, why, alex? it'll always be with us. every time i kiss her, she'll be thinking, "why am i kissing this nonvaledictorian?" it's not fair! it's not right! it's a gyp! a gyp? that's right. when you were littleand things went wrong, you'd lie onthe floor and scream, hold your breathand pout. but adults must acceptsome things they don't like. if it had been anyone else, i could have handled it.
but not rachel. my girlfriend! i just can't feel comfortable in a relationship unless i'm number one. it is nota competition, alex. it is a relationship. both partners are equal. dad, uh... i know you have to use that feminist rhetoric in front of mom... but just between you and me, why not admit that you are still the man? you're number one. i am the man,but not number one, and neitheris your mother. you can be the man without feelingsuperior to the woman. aren't youhappy for rachel? why should i feel happy to be in her shadow when she makes that speech tomorrow?
every year when another class graduates, i feel i lose a little part of myself, and i'm not referring to my hair. commencement, as you know, means-- alex! alex! quiet down! you're disrupting the ceremony! alex, come here! and so often, graduates return to tell me how valuable they've found their years at harding. mallory, there'sa graduation ceremonygoing on. rachel's really upset in the ladies' room. you should talk to her. he can't go in the ladies' room! i think she went backstage. she looked terrible. she's nervous about her speech.
she kept saying, "i'm very proud to be valedictorian of this here place." i triedto talk to her. she wouldn't see me. maybe you should try again. sir! me? is there something you'd care to share with the rest of us? no. that's fine. thank you for asking. well, in that case, we'll proceed with the awarding of diplomas, followed by the valedictory address by rachel miller. alex, talk to her! betsy afferton... amanda agretti... "and i thinkfranklin roosevelt
oh, i wish i'd wornmy other earrings! i think it was eleanor roosevelt who said that. alex... i told you i don't wantto see you anymore. yeah, but i want to see you. we got to talk. i feel terrible about what happened the other day. alex, in five minutes,i have to do my speech. if you felt bad, you'dhave called before this. i've been busy. doing what? moping... and whining... and being a real idiot. you'd be surprised how much time that takes. alex, you hurt me. when i needed you,you really let me down. i know, rache. why does itbother you so much that i'm valedictorian? i'd have thoughtyou'd be happy for me.
we should build each other up. i would've been happy for you. i know. why do you have to win at everything? i have a little problemin this area. i don't want to always compete with you. we're notalways competing. we are. give me an examplewhen i've beenoverly competitive. when i beat you at miniature golf. i handled that very well. you fileda formal protest with the manager. it wasn't a formal protest. i asked him to examine your clubs. i don't wantto feel guilty for beinga better golfer than you. you're absolutely right. i wouldn't say you're a better golfer. you had one good game.
i'm going to work on this problem. it's going to get better. i promise. warren kane... you'd better go out. they're goingto call your name. no. i refuse to graduate high school until we have this matter settled. alex p. keaton... keaton, alex p. although i really would like to graduate. go ahead, alex. you're notthe dropout type. last call for alex p. keaton. marvin kennedy...
thank you. alex, i don'twant to lose you because i'msmarter than you. i wouldn't say you're sm-- you're not going to lose me. you go out there, and you give the best valedictory speech this school's ever heard. franklin roosevelt expressed it best when he said,"this generation of americans has a rendezvous with destiny." once again, i thank the faculty for this honor. this is a day i will remember always. thank you.
i'd like to extend a hearty congratulations to the graduating class of 1984. it's over, kids. alex, your mother and iwould like you to have this. oh...dad. that-a-boy. i'm so proud of you. mom, you promised you wouldn't get emotional. i'm not emotional. my little baby boy! we're proud of youfor holding it in. we did it, alex. we graduated. we did. great speech, rachel. maybe you can give mesome pointers
