Bebe begins getting breasts and chaos ensues in fourth grade. Suddenly all the boys think she’s cool and they all want to hang out with her. She loves the attention, but it’s making Wendy jealous. All the boys start turning into primitive monkeys and hanging around her house, asking her mother if she can come out to play.
Bebe becomes increasingly dismayed as she realizes that it’s only her early maturation that’s inspiring attention from the boys; she says:
“If I grow up getting everything I want and having things made easy for me because I have hot knockers, then I’m going to grow up to be a lame person. If I’m handed everything in life then my chances of becoming a lawyer or a marine-biologist are zero.”
As the boys start warring amongst themselves for Bebe’s affection and attention they have to learn that sometimes there are more important things in life. Randy tells Stan:
“You can’t let them get in the way of your friends. There are a lot of boobs out there, son. But they’re just boobs; your friends are forever….I know you think this set of boobs is important now, but those boobs will be replaced by another set of boobs. Boobs will come and go, and then, someday you’ll meet a pair of boobs that you want to marry. And those become the boobs that matter the most.”
