10 Things I Hate About You
Life is a grindstone. Whether it grinds us down or polishes us up depends on us.Thomas L. Holdcroft
- I hate the way you talk to me. And the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots And the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick — It even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh — Even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it that you're not around. And the fact that you didn't call.
But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you — Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.
- What is it with this chick? She got beer-flavored nipples?
- Are you asking me out? That's so cute! What's your name again?
Dr. Walter Stratford

- Patrick: So what's your excuse?
- Kat: For?
- Patrick: Acting the way we do.

- Dr. Stratford: Then you'll never date...Oh I like that! And I'll get to sleep at night, the deep slumber of a father whose daughters aren't out being impregnated
- Dr. Stratford: This morning I delivered a set of twins to a fifteen-year-old girl, and you know what she said to me?
- Bianca: "I'm a crack-whore who should have made my sleazy boyfriend wear a condom"?
- Dr. Stratford: Close.. but no. she said, "I should have listened to my father."
- Bianca: She did not!
- Dr. Stratford: Well, that's what she would have said if she wasn't so doped up.
- How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways.

- Note: There are other versions of the film floating around the Internet. Most of them are the original script. As the movie was filmed, however, large portions of this original script were changed or completely eliminated. The most common version found in the Internet, then, is useless because of the many differences between original script and actual film. This is a transcript, word-for-word (except where noted), of the movie itself, not what the movie "was supposed" to be like.
