Captain Hook Fish and Chips, Fast Times at Ridgemont High
There’s nothing like a good ol’ pirate uniform, eh? In Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Brad Hamilton finds himself swashbuckling his way around Captain Hook Fish and Chips, but abruptly quits when an ’80s babe laughs at his getup on a delivery run. Fun fact: That babe was Nancy Wilson. Barracudas and pirates are both nautical, so you’d think she’d be into it.
