Oh, Those Wacky Muslims

The Princess & the Marine

As they reach the top, Trucker says, "Houston, we got a problem." It seems that they might have trouble finding their girls, given the size of the mall. Meriam watches them. Hick spots some Tootsie Rolls being sold at a cart, and walks over. Trucker starts hitting on some girl. Zack compliments a woman's baby. Oh, he's definitely the one for her. Well, out of the three, he's definitely the best. Meriam tells her friends that her asthma is acting up, and she needs to go to the bathroom. Once the friends are ditched, Meriam walks over to where Zack is standing and adjusts her shoe. She whispers to him that she can't talk to him there, and tells him to meet her at some stairs nearby.

She takes off and Zack stares after her with a look on his face like Mr. Belding just told him to clean the blackboards after school. Trucker and Hick come up and ask Zack if that was Meriam. Zack thinks so. Trucker teases him about the head-chopping-off stuff. Zack gives him a history lesson about how, in 1977, a princess and her boyfriend were discovered. They chopped off the guy's head and shot the girl. Trucker says that it was different, because that was a princess. Trucker and Hick take off to meet Meriam. Zack stands there for a minute, thinks about Kelly Kapowski, and then follows.

The three Marines approach Meriam. Hick runs into Trucker. Hee! They offer to give Meriam a ride home (Zack) or just go for a ride (Hick). Meriam agrees to go with them. Trucker says something about not wanting to be killed. Hick is still eating a giant Tootsie Roll.

The Marines plus Meriam stop in the wilderness somewhere. Hick finds some dates on a tree and Trucker jokes that those are the only dates he'll get in Bahrain. I seriously would rather watch a show with the two of them than this princess and marine crap. Trucker pulls out a football and tells Meriam to "go long." Zack says Meriam doesn't know anything about football. Meriam says, "You don't think I can catch it?" Zack replies that she can do anything, but he doesn't know if she should. Oh my God, I just realized who Zack reminds me of in this movie. Dawson. He's so Dawson. The phrasing, the sanctimonious talk. Meriam says that she could go to jail if they get caught. She and Zack frolic with the football, because talking about jail got Zack all hot and bothered. Zack asks Meriam why they're worth the risk. Meriam is sick of being told what she can't do, and wants to try something new. Meriam asks Zack if he believes in his country, since he's a Marine. Zack says that he's a "career Marine," and asks Meriam what she believes in. Meriam says she believes she was "born in the wrong place." Lots of eye contact and flirtatious banter. Trucker comes up and asks what's going on with them. Meriam says her mother thinks she watches too many "Meg Ryan movies" and she believes in love. Meriam runs off and Trucker tells Zack that he's leaving him home next time. They drop off Meriam at the mall. As Meriam pauses outside the mall to pull out her uniform, some security guy sees her, and then sees the Marines pulling away in their SUV. He looks mad.
