How often do you want your own pool?

A) Once or twice a year. B) Never. C) On days like this. D) I like the idea but not the reality. E) I have one. It's a mixed bag. F) Doesn't make sense here. G) What kind of liability insurance do you need to have? H) I'd think if I used it a couple dozen times a year, it would be worth it. I) Does chlorine infiltrate your precious bodily fluids?

Localize “The Graduate” in 6 easy steps

1. Have Ben and Elaine live in Spokane.

2. Have Elaine go to school at U-Dub.

3. Instead of at the Taft Hotel, have Ben and Mrs. Robinson get together at The Davenport.

4. Keep the Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack.

5. Set Elaine's aborted wedding at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist and then have Ben and Elaine jump on an STA bus.

6. At that party early in the movie, instead of having that guy say “Plastics” to Ben, have him say “Assisted living.”

OK, what did I forget?
