Johnson inform us of his plans not to rerun in the upcoming election. Upon hearing of his plans, Matt and the rest of the students celebrate by smoking marijuana. An uncool student from next door is disturbed by the boys' racket, and upon being pelted with junk food by the boys for telling them to be quiet, he calls the police. Within minutes, Matt and his roommates are caught smoking, and are banned from college campus. Matt returns home to his family, where he is faced with various issues before being shipped off to Vietnam. Source: Wikipedia (no source cited).. please someone update this!!.
