Embarrassing sex in ”National Lampoon’s Animal House”
THE CHARACTERS Delta fraternity pledge Larry ”Pinto” Kroger (Tom Hulce, above), and Clorette DePasto (Sarah Holcomb), a grocery store cashier and daughter of the mayor
THE SCENE After Pinto unsuccessfully tries to take off Clorette’s bra during a makeout session, the girl finally removes it herself — then immediately passes out, leaving a surprised Pinto holding great handfuls of tissue. His good and evil sides debate over whether to take advantage of the unconscious Clorette. In the end, he dumps her in a shopping cart and drops her off at her father’s doorstep.
EMBARRASSMENT QUOTIENT Moderate compared to a later scene, when Clorette reveals to Pinto that she’s underage, then introduces him to her father as ”the boy who molested me.”
