Napoleon Dynamite

Napoleon is a high school geek that is always picked on, and doesn't have many friends, except for Pedro, who wants to run for student council, and Deb, who is sort of going out with Pedro. Living with Napoleon is Kip, who is just as geeky, but older. When Napoleon's grandmother is injured, his uncle Rico stays to look after him, along with Kip. Kip's girlfriend, LaFawnduh comes to visit too. Uncle Rico offers to sell some "breast enhancers" to Deb, lying that Napoleon suggested the idea. Deb calls Napoleon, saying that he should try some himself for being so heartless.
