After John loses the drag race with Falfa, John talks about how is he no longer the best and wants to give up racing. Terry starts to rally him up and says that is “cool” and can be the best. Here, John gets wrapped back up into his youthful and powerful self-image, still not able to let go of his glorious teenage years. In the film Superbad, the two adult police officers, Officer Slater (Bill Hader) and Officer Michaels (Seth Rogen) are presented as immature. The police officers portray behavior that is even more adolescent than the teenage boys. They drink and drive, shoot guns in parking lots and hit Seth with their police car. It is hard for these characters to let go of their youth and finally accept their adult life. It is viewed by them as something to be avoided yet it is a part of their reality. At the end of both films, the some of the characters seem to come to a new self-awareness and acceptance of their soon to be an entrance into the adult world. At the end of American Graffiti, Curt accepts his adult life by deciding to go to college while Steve, who initially was the one who wanted to go to college,…

Some believe that this bill implies that the “First Amendment should be treated ‘not as a right but as a privilege’” (Sigmon 1). What is false about this belief is that all legislation can be deemed unconstitutional if it is. The lawmakers of America want to protect citizens while respecting the rights granted to them in the Constitution. It is part of their job to use the Constitution as a…

    Of course, Jack and Bill also have more investigations to do thanks to some information that has come to light regarding Mr. Gowen.
