Young, ambitious high school students Darcy Elliot (Molly Ringwald) and Stan Bobrucz (Randal Batinkoff) have a hitch thrown into their plans to attend college and pursue professional careers when they discover that Darcy is pregnant. Deciding against abortion or adoption, the couple decides to carry the child to term and to try to raise it themselves; however they are unprepared for the myriad of decisions and responsibilities that they are forced to deal with.

Stan: "You're light as air."
Darcy: "Yeah, so is a blimp."
Stan: "But a blimp can't dance."
Darcy: "I tried on my dress, for the prom, I look like a Thanksgiving Day float. Also I'm itching everywhere, my ankles are fat, there's something hanging out of my butt, the article's not going good and now I need a haircut."
Stan: "There's something hanging out of your what?"
Darcy: "Well, when you're pregnant, sometimes you get hemorroids, okay?"
Stan: "Bummer."
Stan: "Oh no, my wife is not gonna get a job!"
Darcy: "Oh great Stan, you sound just like Fred Flintstone."
Darcy: "How could you name our baby Theodosia?"
Stan: "We needed a name for a the birth certificate, I asked you what you wanted!"
Darcy: "It sounds like a greek fishing boat, or a crater on the moon or something!"
Darcy: "Oh my God! My God, it's huge, it's a monster! It's a giant boa-constrictor, get that thing away from me, get it away, put it aways before it kills somebody!"
Mr. Bobrucz: "You, Fife, can take your French fruit and stuff it up your big bird!"
Michaela: "How can you be so smart and so dumb?"
Michaela: "I love it when the smart kids try to be so stupid."
Stan: "You don't take care of bills by stuffing them in a shoebox!... We'll do less entertaining! And there is no reason on God's green earth that we have to have chocolate milk in the fridge at all times! Or French goddamn roast goddamn coffee, with goddamn cinnamon!"
Mr. Babrucz: "Young lady you need to learn how to keep your mouth shut and your legs crossed!"
Darcy Elliot: "I'm pregnant. Could you pass the turnips?"
