    • Gordo: He's just excited by the Sadie Hawkins Day dance.
      Sadie Hawkins Day originated in a satirical comic strip written by Al Capp called Lil' Abner, which ran from 1934 until 1977. It was about a bunch of hillbillies who lived in the fictional town of Dogpatch somewhere in the mountains. Sadie Hawkins was the mayor's daughter. She was so ugly that in order to marry her off, the mayor declared "Sadie Hawkins Day," when there was a big race with all the unmarried men getting a head start. If any woman pursuing the men caught one, she could marry him. Since then Sadie Hawkins dances, where the girls ask to boys to go, have been held at schools everywhere
