Back at the Haverchuck house, Gloria, Biff, and Bill are having dinner. Bill is dejected and silent. He doesn't even warm up when Biff asks his pick for best movie of all time. Then again, Biff doesn't really give Bill time to answer; he just plows ahead with his opinion of Carl Weathers's physique in his own favourite movie, Rocky II. He claims that the sequel was much better than the original Rocky. For all I know, he may be right, since I've never been able to sit through even five minutes of any of the thirty or so Rocky movies. Whenever I think of Sylvester Stallone -- which I try really hard not to do, generally speaking -- all that comes to mind is the old Spy magazine article that relates that he was once photographed in his study looking very involved in reading a book -- which turned out to be a dictionary. It will come as no great surprise that Biff is not overly fond of Bill's favourite comedian, Bill Murray, claiming that "somebody ought to smack some sense into that guy." When Bill defends his namesake, Biff does a nice job of trying to be diplomatic. He makes the mistake of trying to encourage Bill to do better in Gym class, though. When Gloria excuses herself to use the restroom, Bill says, "We don't have a restroom; we have a toilet." Whatever it's called, Gloria leaves to make use of it, while Biff and Bill fall back into tense silence. Biff sighs. By the way, it turns out his real name is Ben Fredricks, but he'll always be Biff to me.
At school, Lindsay and Kim are joking and giggling when they run into an exceedingly glum Millie. When asked what's wrong, Millie replies, "Goliath's dead." Kim snickers and asks, "Who's Goliath?" Lindsay tells her that Goliath was Millie's dog.. She is totally sympathetic to Millie as she asks for details. When Millie mentions that the person who ran over Goliath didn't even stop, Kim and Lindsay obviously realize that they were the ones who killed the dog. They don't say anything to Millie, though.
In the lunchroom, Kim and Lindsay do confess to Ken and Daniel. Ken asks Kim whether she killed the dog with her "bare hands." That almost makes up for his annoying next statement, that "girl plus car equals dead animal." Kim is too upset to kick him in the crotch for that remark. Lindsay thinks they should tell Millie what happened, but Kim doesn't want to. Ken makes a pathetic attempt to cheer up Kim by pointing out that at least she didn't kill a human. Kim says that what happened is worse, because she likes dogs. I like most animals better than I like most people, so I can relate. It's hard not to feel sorry for Millie, though. She's eating lunch alone, looking so down that her face is almost on her lunch tray.
