MONDO EXTRAS

Oh, Those Wacky Muslims

The Princess & the Marine

Back to Meriam and the Plucky Violins and the random phone calls. A woman on the other end announces that she has reached "Manai Plaza" and asks what room she wants. Meriam pauses, looks at the clock, and says "One Three Three" (since that's the time). Back at the barracks, the phone rings in the room of the three friends. Okay, I refuse to believe that this happened. Meriam never called random rooms. She never called their barracks at random. I just don't buy it. Other Friend says that Zack's woman must be on the phone. Zack asks who would have the number, and Other Friend replies, "Fate." Zack won't answer the phone so Other Friend picks up. Meriam asks who it is. Finally! Other Friend shall now be known as Trucker. Thanks, Meriam. After exchanging pleasantries, Meriam says she just wanted someone to talk to. Trucker pauses and whispers to his roommates, "It's a girl, it's a girl!" Hick nearly breaks something running over there, as if he's never talked to a girl on the phone before. Actually, looking at him, he probably hasn't. Meriam tells Trucker that she's seventeen and then shuts the door to her room. Trucker asks if she has any friends, and then asks them to come hang out with him and his friends for a Coke. Meriam says she doesn't think her friends would go for it. Trucker asks her to come alone. Dude, she's seventeen! She's underage! Meriam blurts out that she'll be at the Desert Mall the next day after school and hangs up quickly. Trucker and Hick celebrate their date. Um, there's only one of her and three of you, and I don't want to know what kind of date that is, especially since she's, you know, a minor and all. Hick jokes that she'll be wearing "all those veils." Zack says that he's not going with them, and tells them to read the guidebook, because if they "screw around with a woman," they could get their heads chopped off. Trucker protests that the girl might not be Muslim -- she could be Methodist or Mormon. Yeah, I bet there are many Mormons in the Middle East. Or Methodists for that matter. Trucker points out that Meriam called them, and says that Zack wants to learn about new things. Zack agrees to go.

Cue the Spice Girls. No, really. No. Really. It's "Wannabe." Nothing against the Spice Girls, but was this movie made in 1997? Anyway, Meriam and a couple of her friends run around in the mall, wearing their school uniforms. They run into a bathroom and change out of their uniforms while primping in front of the mirror. They run around the mall, holding hands. Okay, are they twelve? Who acts like that at seventeen? While her friends window-shop, Meriam spots the three Marines coming up the escalator.
