Two college roommates go out and party, resulting in bad grades. They learn of the clause that says, "If your roommate dies, you get an A," and decide to find someone who is on the verge, so to speak, to move in with them.
In the film, Kyle (played by Jason Segal) dates Kelly (played by Linda Cardellini). Segal and Cardellini would go on to play a couple again in TV series Freaks and Geeks in 1999, as well as date in real life.
I'm not gonna commit suicide, if that's what you're thinking.
Cooper: Aw come on Josh, you're fucked anyway. At least this way, one of us comes out on top.
Josh: Then you kill YOURself.
Cooper: Naw, I just couldn't see that working.
When Cliff O'Malley falls off a balcony after throwing water balloons the second time around and Josh and Cooper run over to him you can see the shadow of a mike boom.
The opening sequence consists of diagrams of how to commit suicide as they would look if they were questions on a college midterm.
