El Al BBG/San Francisco BBG Mean Girls Night 4/11/09
Planner: Nicole Pavlovsky
6:30-6:40 El Al and SF1 arrive
6:40-6:55 Mixer. People break up into groups and act out their favorite scenes of Mean Girls. (Assign each group a different scene so that they won’t repeat, scroll down to find the scene scripts below this) 6:55 -7:15 Girls Who Eat Their Feelings, Girls Who Don’t Eat Anything program. Decorate matzah with jam with your emotions during that week and eat afterwards. 7:15-7:35 Havdallah and cheers.
7:35-8:00 “Suck out all the poison” program. People get paper and pencils and write an apology letter to someone, and they read it out loud. Then the letter is burned over a candle. 8:00-9:00 Intro & Good and Welfare. Read this out loud: “Everybody close your eyes. I want you to raise your hand if you have ever had a girl say something bad about you behind your back. Open your eyes. Now, close your eyes again. And this time, I want you to raise your hand if you have ever said anything about a friend behind her back. Open them. There's been some girl-on-girl crime here. OK. So, what we could do today is a couple exercises to help you express your anger in a healthy way. Let's start over here.” After reading this, go around in a group, and each girl says 1 thing that is either making them angry at the moment, an apology they want to get off their chest, or any other 1 emotion. This is like a mini-good&welfare that is much shorter than ordinary g&ws. 9:00-10:45- Eat kosher desserts (macaroons)& drink "mocktails" and watch Mean Girls! While the movie is playing, make the anti-burn book. Get lots of paper and write the name of each girl at the event and have girls write NICE instead of MEAN, bitchy things about that girl.
Fill a flat plate with sugar, and another plate with lemon juice. Take plastic cups, and 1 at a time, dip the plastic cup rim into the lemon juice, then into the sugar, creating a sugar rim. Then pour in the mocktails drinks. Garnish with strawberry slices, lemon slices, and maraschino cherries!
Mixer Skit Scene Scripts
Scene 1: Cady: Where's the back building? Janis: It burned down in 1949. Cady: Won't we get in some sort of trouble for this? Janis: Why would we get you into trouble? We're your friends.Cady: I know it's wrong to skip class, but Janis said we were friends. And I was in no position to pass up friends. I guess I'll never know what I missed on that first day of health class.Coach Carr: Don't have sex. Because you will get pregnant and die. Don't have sex in the missionary position, don't have sex standing up. Just don't do it, promise? OK, everybody take some rubbers.
Scene 2: Damian: In the name of all that is holy, will you look at Karen Smith's gym clothes? Janis: Of course all The Plastics are in the same gym class. Cady: Who are The Plastics? Janis: They're teen royalty. If North Shore was Us Weekly, they would always be on the cover. That one there, that's Karen Smith. She is one of the dumbest girls you will ever meet. Damian sat next to her in English last year. Damian: She asked me how to spell "orange". Janis: And that little one? That's Gretchen Wieners. She's totally rich because her dad invented Toaster Strudel. Gretchen Wieners knows everybody's business. She knows everything about everyone. Damian: That's why her hair is so big. It's full of secrets. Janis: And evil takes a human form in Regina George. Don't be fooled, because she may seem like your typical selfish, back-stabbing, slut-faced ho-bag. But in reality, she is so much more than that. Damian: She's the queen bee. The star. Those other two are just her little workers.
Scene 3: Regina: Get in, loser. We're going shopping. Cady: Regina's like the barbie doll I never had. I'd never seen anybody so glamorous. Regina: So how do you like North Shore?Cady: It's good. I think I'm joining the Mathletes. Regina: No! No, no.Gretchen: No, no. Regina: You cannot do that. That is social suicide. Damn, you are so lucky you have us to guide you. Cady: Being at Old Orchard Mall kind of reminded me of being home in Africa. By the watering hole. When the animals are in heat. Gretchen: Oh, my God, there's Jason! Regina: Where? Oh, there he is. Gretchen: And he's with Taylor Wedell. Karen: I heard they're going out. Regina: Wait. Jason's not going out with Taylor. No. He cannot blow you off like that. He's such a little skeez. Give me your phone. Gretchen: You're not gonna call him, right? Regina: Do you think I'm an idiot? Gretchen: No. Regina: Wedell on South Boulevard. Gretchen: Caller ID. Regina: Not when you connect from Information. Taylor’s mom: Hello? Regina: Hello. May I please speak to Taylor Wedell? Taylor’s mom: She's not home yet. Who's calling? Regina: Oh, this is Susan from Planned Parenthood. I have her test results. If you can have her give me a call as soon as she can. It's urgent. Thank you. Regina: She's not going out with anyone. Gretchen: OK, that was so fetch.
Scene 4: Cady: She took him back. Regina took Aaron back. Janis: Oh, no, Cady.Cady: Why would she do that? Janis: Because she's a life-ruiner. She ruins people's lives. Damian: When we were 13 she made people sign this petition saying that Janis was... Janis: Damian! Please! Janis: Look, she's not gonna get away with this again, OK? We're gonna do something. Cady: We are? Janis: Regina George is an evil dictator. Now, how do you overthrow a dictator? You cut off her resources. Regina would be nothing without her high-status man candy... ...technically good physique... ...and ignorant band of loyal followers. Now, Cady, if we want this to work, you are gonna have to keep hanging out with them like nothing is wrong. Can you do it? Cady: I can do it. Janis: OK, let's rock this bitch.
Scene 5: Mr. Duvall: And your Spring Fling Queen, future co-chair of the Student Activities Board and winner of two gift certificates to the Walker Brothers Pancake House… Cady Heron. Where is Cady? There she is. Cady: Thanks. Well, half the people in this room are mad at me. And the other half only like me because they think I pushed somebody in front of a bus. So that's not good. Mr. Duvall: You know, it's not really required of you to make a speech. Cady: I'm almost done, I swear. Cady: To all the people whose feelings that got hurt by the Burn Book, I'm really sorry. You know, I've never been to one of these things before. And when I think about how many people wanted this, and how many people cried over it and stuff... I mean, I think everybody looks like royalty tonight. Look at Jessica Lopez. That dress is amazing. And Emma Gerber, I mean, that hairdo must have taken hours, and you look really pretty. So... ...why is everybody stressing over this thing? I mean, it's just plastic. Could really just... Share it. A piece for Gretchen Wieners, a partial Spring Fling Queen. A piece for Janis Ian. Mr. Duvall: Seriously, most people just take the crown and go.Cady: And a piece for Regina George. She fractured her spine, and she still looks like a rock star. Regina: Thank you. Cady: And some for everybody else. G-d, Mr. Duvall, can you wrap it up?
Gretchen: Did he say why? Regina: Somebody told him about Shane Oman. Gretchen: Who? Regina: He said some guy on the baseball team. Gretchen: Baseball team? Regina: I gave him everything. I was half a virgin when I met him. Karen: You wanna do something fun? You wanna go to Taco Bell? Regina: I can't go to Taco Bell, I'm on an all-carb diet. G-d, Karen, you are so stupid! Gretchen: Regina, wait. Talk to me. Regina: Nobody understands me. Gretchen: I understand you. Cady: You're not stupid, Karen. Karen: No. I am, actually. I'm failing almost everything. Cady: Well, there must be something you're good at. Karen: I can put my whole fist in my mouth. Wanna see? Cady: No. That's OK. Anything else? Karen: I'm kind of psychic. I have a fifth sense. Cady: What do you mean? Karen: It's like I have ESPN or something. My breasts can always tell when it's gonna rain. Cady: Really? That's amazing. Karen: Well, they can tell when it's raining.
