Set on the last day of camp, in the hot summer of 1981, a group of counselors try to complete their unfinished business before the day ends.
In a July 2015 Entertainment Weekly interview, David Wain said that the ordeal that Victor underwent while trying to get back from leading a canoe trip to "make out" with Abby, was based on an experience he had while he was a camp counselor: "I had just turned sixteen. I was assigned to drive a group of campers to an overnight camping trip and leave the next morning with another counselor and head back to camp. But, I had just met this girl at the camp and I was so excited to see her that I decided, 'No, I'm going to leave late at night and race back to camp', even though I barely knew how to drive. So I cranked up the tunes, pedal to the metal, and I was driving through pitch black, winding unpaved roads as fast as I could, in hopes of making out with this girl, and about two miles away from the campsite, but still in the middle of this state park, I smashed hard into a tree. I lodged the fender deep into the tire, rendering the van utterly undriveable, and was stuck in the middle of the woods. I had no idea how to get back, I couldn't see my hand in front of me, but luckily I did end up wandering back to find the campsite with the kids and the counselor and they were like, 'What the hell is wrong with you?' After that, they initiated a policy that junior counselors weren't allowed to drive vehicles at camp. I eventually did get to make out with the girl."
Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.
Gary: Come on - what?
Gene: Finish up the taters.
Gary: And then what did you say?
Gene: And then what did I say?
Gary: You said you were going to... fondle your sweaters.
Gene: Ah, uh - no I didn't. I said... fondue the cheddar......
