Hey Rockin,
Reminds me of that scene from the Bells of St. Mary's...when the two boys get into a fight and wind up shaking hands after... the boy who wins offers to buy the loser a ice cream cone, of course, Fr. O'Malley witnesses the whole thing is astonished that the geeky guy wins the fight...with Sister Benedict's help, of course...ah what we have lost...
