    From IMDb:

    When Jeremy Melton/Adam Carr asks each girl for a dance, they each state a mean comment right after he asks them. This foreshadows each of the girls' [fates]:

    - Shelley: "In your dreams, loser" - Dies lying down in a sleeping position.

    - Lily: "Eww!" - Receives maggots in a chocolate box and her body lands in a dumpster.

    - Paige: "I'd rather be boiled alive." - Gets thrown into a hot tub and is later electrocuted.

    - Dorothy: "He attacked me!" - Makes everyone believe she was "attacked" by Jeremy after being caught kissing him behind the bleachers. Jeremy/Adam makes everyone believe that all the killings were Dorothy's doing.

    - Kate: "Maybe later, Jeremy." - Jeremy/Adam lets Kate live since she is the only girl that did not insult him and wasn't mean to him. She does eventually dance with Adam and have a relationship with him.
