Dude Back Off is the two-hundred twenty-fifth video in the lonelygirl15 video series. Sarah complains about Daniel being too serious and clingy.


(Sarah is sitting on the bed with her legs crossed in a yoga position. She has candles lit, and Daniel's puppy is lying beside her.)

Sarah: I am free and happy. I am free and happy. I am free and happy.

(Sarah gets close to the camera.)

Sarah: I am free and happy because I am locked in my room, away from all clingy and needy guys. You wanna hear my eternal freak song?

(Cuts back to Sarah in the yoga position.)

Sarah: I am not now, nor have I ever been Mrs. Cleaver. I am not now, nor have I ever been Mrs. Cleaver. I am not now, nor have I ever been Mrs. Cleaver.

(Cuts to Sarah in the living room, pushing a vacuum cleaner. Cuts to her in an apron folding laundry. Cuts back to her pushing the vacuum. Cuts to Sarah checking something in the oven. Cuts back to Sarah sitting in her bedroom.)

Sarah: Who is Mrs. Cleaver?

(Cuts to Sarah back in the yoga position.)

Sarah: So you see, m'dear... the reality of "us" is... not all happy faces and sappy love songs and sunshine and birdies.

(Sarah gets close to the camera.)

Sarah: Why do you guys always get so serious? I mean, really. It's a big turn-off. Come on, Daniel, think about my life. I just graduated high school, I left home, I don't even know what I'm doing with my future. Except for the fact that I'm chasing around Bree, the cult girl. I mean, come on. What did you think would happen? You're a bud. Be a bud. Let's just kick back and chill. "Chill" being the key word here. And who knows... maybe I'll let you paint my toes again sometime soon.

(Sarah wiggles her toes for the camera.)


  • Mrs. Cleaver is a reference to June Cleaver, the mother of the main character in the television show Leave It To Beaver.
  • This is the second official video in a row to use blatantly improper grammar in its title. To be correct, there would need to be some sort of punctuation, such as a comma or an ellipsis, between "Dude" and "Back Off".
  • The apron Sarah wears is identical to the one worn by Nikki Bower in It's Party Time - NBR Investigates.
  • In Time To Grow Up Bree also refers to Daniel as "clingy".
  • The room Sarah vacuums in looks a lot like the room Bree cries in in "Cheer Me Up."
