The New Guy

Plot hole: When Diz is called into the Principal's office following the first game, he is questioned about the prom, which is scheduled in two weeks. In that two weeks, the football team goes through a whole season, including the state championship. When do they have time for school? (00:52:25)

Plot hole: At the party when Dizzy gives his wallet to a couple of guys so they can see the picture of him and his 'girlfriend' he never gets his wallet back from them. He gets on his motorcycle and leaves. (00:38:05)

Plot hole: When Gil was riding on the bike as it was tied up to the car by rope, leaving the party, his friends slammed on brakes, causing Gil to fly forward over the car onto the windshield. After he said, "I almost got laid", music came on and it appeared through the window they started driving again. If they had driven away, the bike tied up would've been making noises. They showed no interest in the bike still dragging behind them.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gil has knocked out Connor and is trying to get the whole school to see it, he lifts him up against the wall where Connor falls into the trophy case, breaking the glass. Later on in the scene, when the principal comes out, they show the trophy case, but no broken glass. (00:27:40 - 00:28:45)

Eddie Griffin: You know, high school's a lot like prison. Bad food, high fences. The sex you want you ain't gettin', and the sex you getting you don't want.

Trivia: Dizzy/Gil (Qualls) is taken to the new school by the police in the van. This scene is identical to the scene in Con-Air when Garland (Steve Buscemi) is taken to the plane.

Question: Towards the end, just after we find out the Eliza Dushku changed herself a bit too, after she says "no kidding" to Dizzy, what does he say? I can't make it out, and that line's not subtitled on the DVD.
