TRAVIS: I think I have a fever.

    GORDO: So who told you to stand under a freezing
    cold shower at three o'clock in the morning? Didn't
    he notice your lips were turning blue?

    TRAVIS: You just don't understand.

    GORDO: Don't I? Travis, if you'd taken Trig with me like I
    asked you to, you'd know by now that it doesn't matter if
    you like boys instead of girls because the formulas are all
    the same.

    TRAVIS: No.

    GORDO: Ever collect baseball cards?

    TRAVIS: No.

    GORDO: How old is Barbra Streisand?

    TRAVIS: 36. Three weeks ago.

    GORDO: What do you needa fucking blueprint?
