28 years ago today was the debut of The Goonies. A movie that changed many peoples childhoods and has given us all dreams of finding a pirate ship or hidden treasure or pulling a fast one over on some bad guys.  

I bet no one of you know The Goonies oath though? I sure didn't because it was cut out of the film so I found it.

"I will never betray my goon dock friends / We will stick together until the whole world ends / Through heaven and hell, and nuclear war / Good pals like us, will stick like tar / In the city, or the country, or the forest, or the boonies / I am proudly declared a fellow Goony."

Another little side note is that the pirate ship was in fact not a special effect. They constructed a full sized ship for the movie. None of the cast had seen the ship until the big scene where they zipped down the water slides. It had to be re-shot because most of them ended up swearing when they first saw the ship. 

The pirate ship was offered to anyone that would take it off their hands after the movie was filmed but no one was able to take it so the ship had to be destroyed sadly.
