* {{Jerkass}}: Tommy. At Suzi's party, he tries to make Julie jealous by deliberately walking or dancing by her with any one of several girls also in attendance. It doesn't work; she continues to give him the cold shoulder. Tommy later tries to bed Loryn, but when she insists that they will be a couple after the deed is done, he reverses gears and blackmails her into silence ("I won't tell if you won't."). Of course, not only does he tell his friends, but he ''lies'' ("Oh yeah, she was good."). When he catches wind of Julie talking to Randy, he and his cronies interrupt their conversation, rough Randy up on the spot, then throw him out of the house.

** Additionally, Suzi and Stacey are unaware of, or choose to ignore, Tommy's JerkAss traits simply because he is a "bitchin'" example of what they consider to be an ideal Valley dude. Not only that, but the looks that Stacey often gives Tommy and her constant referring to him as a hunk seem to hint that she might have wanted him for herself.

*** The Valley Girls' distaste for Randy is ironic in hindsight when taken into account that they practically drooled at the sight of him at the beach earlier; Stacey had even described him as a "hunk"! Of course, people are not likely to wear their street clothes at the beach, so Stacey had no way of knowing that the hunk that had caught her attention would be the Hollywood punk who would later romance her best friend.

* ReallyGetsAround: Stacey and Julie have a conversation in which Stacey says that she believes that Loryn does the things she says she does ("I mean, who could make up 'that stuff tastes like Clorox'?"). Julie, however, is not convinced, though she does worry for Loryn's safety. Stacey's suspicions turn out to be true; Loryn makes out with a drunken Tommy at Suzi's party and is prepared to go further. When she insists that doing the nasty will cement them as a couple, however, Tommy backs off and blackmails her into silence, saying, "I won't tell if you won't." Of course, Tommy, being the {{Jerkass}} that he is, not only tells, but ''lies'' about his encounter, hinting that he and Loryn did go all the way.

* StalkingIsLove: Randy. He goes back to Suzi's house after being thrown out, sneaks into the upstairs bathroom through the window, and hides in the shower stall, waiting and hoping that Julie will eventually come in. The next day, he shows up unannounced at the Richmans' health food store to see Julie, much to her shock (although she does turn out to be pleased to see him). After Randy resolves to win Julie back after she dumps him, he accosts her on her way to school, which doesn't go well. Julie later finds photo booth pictures of Randy in her schoolbooks, and that he has dedicated a song to her on the radio ("Eyes of a Stranger," the song that played when they first met at Suzi's party). Randy then goes all about the Valley, getting jobs in places where Julie just happens to go, just to get a glimpse of her. Julie seems secretly happy to see him, but seeing that he had spent the night sleeping on her front lawn proves too much for her; she tries to close the shutters of her bedroom window before he can see her, but fails as Randy protests loudly.

** Stacey is the most vocal in her disapproval; she makes the most snarky comments about Julie and Randy's relationship and puts the most pressure on Julie to break up with Randy and reunite with Tommy. Her vehement disapproval seems to stem not just from her prejudice against non-Valley folk, but also from her anxiety that Suzi and Loryn might find out that she, albeit unwillingly, went to Hollywood with Julie, Randy, and Fred, and will ostracize her the same way that she insinuates that everyone will do to Julie if Julie continues to date Randy. And this is the one that Julie calls her best friend!

** Loryn, however, seems conflicted. She goes along with Stacey and Suzi in dogging Julie about Randy when the clique is together, but when she and Julie are by themselves at Du-par's and Julie asks her for advice about the situation, Loryn, because of A) having found out firsthand what a JerkAss Tommy turned out to be, B) just being more adventurous with the opposite sex than the other girls, or [[spoiler:C) possibly feeling some sympathy for Julie's situation, given that Loryn, being from Malibu, is technically an outsider herself within the clique]], earnestly admits that she, too, doesn't know what Julie should do.
** Julie, despite her better judgment, caves in to peer pressure (or, more accurately, to Stacey's smug needling) and announces her intent to break up with Randy. Stacey, with a big relieved smile on her face, tells Julie that she's done the right thing and Suzi just smiles approvingly. Loryn, though, looks visibly uncomfortable (most likely stemming from the reasons outlined above, as well as knowing that Julie was pretty much bullied into making her decision), but says nothing.

This film was made to cash in on the "Valley girl" fad launched by Music/FrankZappa's hit song of the same name. Throw in an [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome awesome]] '80s soundtrack and obvious references to ''{{Romeo and Juliet}}'', and the end product is this cult classic. True love is only a zip code away!
