Paramore “(One of Those) Crazy Girls” Live From Ruth Eckerd Clearwater A…

Terms Index

Terms from OOH-RAH!

 

Below are terms found in the script which you might be unfamiliar with. Please let me know if there are any other terms you would like information about.

 


Carowinds

Pg. 18

“Last I saw you, you were beggin your Mom for second holes in

your ears and crying over trips to Carowinds.” -  Ron

 

Carowinds is a theme park located adjacent to Interstate 77 on the

state line between North and South Carolina, in Charlotte and

Fort Mill, built in 1973.  Attendance at Carowinds was severely

diminished by the 1973 oil crisis, and the park suffered from sagging

attendance and mounting debt throughout its history.

 

 

Eckerds

Pg. 25


“She used to work the register at Eckerds. Now she’s married to

Ned, from/your – “ - Sara

 

Eckerds was one of the largest drugstore chains in America before

it was acquired by CVS and subsequently Rite-Aid. The merger with

Rite-Aid was signed and completed as of 2007, with all remaining

Eckerd stores converted to Rite-Aid by the end of September 2007.

 

 “Eckerd - You’ll like what we’ll do for you!”

 

 

Food Lion

Pg. 25


“I ran into her at Food Lion, she had just come back from

the gynecologist…”-Sara

 

Food Lion is a discount grocery store, offering 5 to 15 percent less

Discounts on prices found at other stores, described as lacking the

aesthetic amenities of other grocery stores. Food Lion operates

1169 supermarkets in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee,

Kentucky, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland,

Delaware and Pennsylvania.

 

 

Bebe gun =BB guns 

 

BB guns are a type of air gun designed to shoot

projectiles named BBs after the birdshot pellet of approximately

the same size. These projectiles are usually spherical but can


also be pointed; those are usually used for bird hunting. One

of the most famous BB guns is the Red Ryder BB Gun by 

Daisy Outdoor Products, modeled after the western Winchester

rifle. First introduced in 1938, the BB gun became an iconic

American toy, and is still in production today. Eye protection 

is essential when shooting BBs, more so than when shooting

lead pellets, since a BB bouncing off a hard surface can retain

a very large portion of its initial energy (pellets usually flatten

and absorb energy), and could easily cause serious eye damage

up to and including blindness. 

 

 

Ooh Rah

pg. 48 

“Ooh Rah, Devil Dog!” – Ron

 

Greeting and battle cry used by the United States Marines since the

mid-20th century, equivalent to the Army’s “hooah!” Also can

refer to a number of different responses, including “heard, understood

and acknowledged”, “copy that”, “affirmative”,  and anything and everything

except “no”. Also used as call and response, a cheer to boost morale, an

adjective describing anything particularly Marine-like. It originated relatively

recently, and is more common among post-Vietnam Marines.

 

 

Devil Dog

Pg. 48

“Ooh Rah, Devil Dog!” – Ron

  • Devil Dogs: The German Army coined this term of respect for U.S. Marines during World War I. In the summer of 1918 the German Army was driving toward Paris. The French Army was in full retreat. In a desperate effort to save Paris, the newly arrived U.S. Marines were thrown into the breach. In June 1918, in bitter fighting lasting for weeks, Marines repeatedly repulsed the Germans in Belleau Wood. The German drive toward Paris sputtered, fizzled, and died. Then the Marines attacked and swept the Germans back out of Belleau Wood. Paris had been saved. The tide of war had turned. Five months later Germany would be forced to accept an armistice. The battle tenacity and fury of the U.S. Marines had stunned the Germans. In their official reports they called the Marines “teufel hunden,” meaning Devil Dogs, the ferocious mountain dogs of Bavarian folklore.
  •  devil dogging – correcting another Marine’s minor deficiency, often in public with implied humiliation.

 

Under the Tuscan Sun 

Pg. 66

They’re just like the ones they use in Tuscany like in

Under the Tuscan Sun. You hold em at the base and swish it

around and the wine breathes, cause apparently

wine’s gotta breathe too. “ - Sara

 

Under the Tuscan Sun was made in 2003, based on Frances

Mayes’ memoir in 1996, directed by Audrey Wells and starring

Diane Lane.

“A woman starts her life over with a new home in a new land in this

romantic comedy drama . Frances (Diane Lane) is a writer in her mid-‘30s

 who feels emotionally derailed after her divorce. Unhappy and unable

to write, she isn’t sure what to do with her life, and her best friend Patti

(Sandra Oh) decides she needs some time away from her problems.

With that in mind, Patti gives Frances a ticket for a two-week tour of the

 Tuscany region of Italy; while there, Frances finds a dilapidated old villa.

Charmed by the warmth, beauty, and charm of the small town of Cortona,

Frances impulsively decides to buy the villa, thinking she can fix it up

herself. The home proves to be more of a handyman’s special than she

imagined, but as she slowly gets the hang of household maintenance,

Italian style, Frances develops a new confidence as she makes friends

with her neighbors and finds love with a handsome local named Marcello

(Raoul Bova). Under the Tuscan Sun is loosely adapted from the memoir

by Frances Mayes, who (unlike the leading character of the film) remained

happily married during her sojourn in Tuscany. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

 

 

 

“Huahh!”

Commonly spelled “Hooah!”

Pg. 48

 

“HUAHH, SIR!” - Chip

 

Greeting and battle cry used by the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force that can

refer to a number of different responses, including “heard, understood

and acknowledged”, “copy that”, “affirmative”,  and anything and everything

except “no”. Also used as call and response, a cheer to boost morale, an

adjective describing anything particularly Army-like. The origin is disputed,

with some attributing it to the film The DI, made in 1956, from the command

of Sgt Jim Moore – “Let me hear you roar, tigers!”, with “hooah” being  the

roared response.

 

 

Semper fi

Pg. 103

 

“Semper Fi, right? That’s what you say?” – Ron

“SEMPER FI.” - Chip

 

Latin for “always loyal”, motto of the United States Marine Corps, shortened

from the full Latin: Semper Fidelis. Adopted by the Marine Corps in 1883.

 

           

IED

Pg. 76

 

“It’s cigarettes you find there, it’s no weapons, no, IED’s.” – Ron

 

IED is the acronym for improved explosive device, used predominantly

in the second Iraq War, responsible for approximately 63% coalition

deaths in Iraq. Also commonly known as a roadside bomb


Lejeune

Pronounced correctly as (luh-JERN)

 

Pg. 76

 

“They just sent over 5,000 from Lejeune son, we missed that boat.” – Ron

as a training facility for Marines.

 

 

Parris Island

Pg. 56

 

“Cocky new green kid, I know your type, think you know everything.

Where’d you train?” – Ron

“Parris Island.” – Chip

 

Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island is located in Port Royal, South Carolina,

just south of Beaufort. Parris Island is used for the training of enlisted Marines,

including male recruits living east of the Missisippi River and all female recruits.

Male recruits living west of the Mississippi River receive their training in San Diego.

The facilities in San Diego and Parris Island are the only two boot camp facilities

in the United States for the training of enlisted Marines.
