Pretty in Pink
The only reason they come to see me is that I know that life is great—and they know I know it.Clark Gable
- You know, it's so insane that someone you've never met, never talked to can be your enemy.
- I just want them to know that they didn't break me.
- If somebody doesn't believe in me, I can't believe in them.
- May I admire you again today?
- God, Andie, I'd've died for you!
- Drinking and driving don't mix, that's why I ride a bike.
- Well, that's very nice. I'm glad. Well here's... here's the point, Andie. I'm not particularly concerned with whether or not you like me, because I live to like you and... and I can't like you anymore. So... so when you're feeling real low and... and dirty, don't look to me to pump you back up 'cause... 'cause... 'cause maybe for the first time in your life I WON'T BE THERE!
- It's called a sense of humor - you should get one - they're nice.
- It's the end of the month, they're out of toilet seat covers!
- This is an incredibly romantic moment, and you're ruining it for me!
- We don't have none of this stuff in the boy's room! Wait a minute! We don't got none of this... we don't got doors on the stalls in the boy's room, we don't have, what is this? What's this? We don't have a candy machine in the boy's room!
- I'm off like a dirty shirt.
- This is a really volcanic ensemble you're wearing, it's really marvelous!
- Good Morning! Welcome to another day of higher education!
- You couldn't buy her, though, that's what's killing you, isn't it? Stef? That's it, Stef. She thinks you're shit. And deep down, you know she's right.
- You said you couldn't be with someone who didn't believe in you. Well I believed in you. I just didn't believe in me. I love you... always.
- That girl was, is, and always will be nada!
- Money really means nothing to me. Do you think I'd treat my parents' house this way if it did?
- Why don't you go to take a shower, you look like shit.
- Andie, you're a bitch.
- [finishes stapling records to the window display] Applause, applause, APPLAUSE.
- Andie, hon. Listen, it's after 7:00. Don't waste good lip gloss.
- Bouncer at CATS: Love's a bitch, Duck. Love's a bitch.
- Principal: If you give off signals that you don't want to belong, people will make sure that you don't.
- Iona: Does he have... strong lips?
- Andie: How can you tell?
- Iona: Did you feel it in your knees?
- Andie: I felt it everywhere.
- Iona: Strong lips.
- Iona: I know I'm old enough to be his mother, but when the Duck laid that kiss on me last night, I swear my thighs just went up in flames! He must practice on melons or something.
- Steff: I've been out with a lot of girls at this school. I don't see what makes you so different.
- Andie: I have some taste.
- Duckie: What now?
- Andie: Bed.
- Duckie: Yours or mine? Ours?
- Blane: How are you doing?
- Andie: Why haven't you called me?
- Blane: Oh, I got nailed for the stable thing. I guess the groom saw us. It's against the rules.
- Andie: I called you three times and i left messages.
- Blane: Yeah? Well I didn't get them. My family... they're irresponsible about that stuff, you know?
- Andie: I waited for you this morning.
- Blane: Yeah? Where?
- Andie: Parking lot. I saw you and I thought you saw me.
- Blane: No.
- Andie: What about prom, Blane?
- Blane: Andie, I'm having a bad day. Can we talk later?
- Andie: No. What about prom?
- Blane: Why don't we meet after school?
- Andie: No! What abot prom?
- Blane: Andie, come on.
- Andie: Just say it.
- Blane: What?
- Andie: Just say it. I wanna hear you say it.
- Blane: Andie, please, all right?
- Andie: I wanna hear you say it.
- Blane: A month ago, I asked somebody else and I forgot.
[Andie pushes him against a locker]
- Andie: YOu're a liar! You're a filthy, fucking, no-good liar. You don't have the guts to tell me the truth. Just say it!
- Blane: I'm not lying.
- Andie: Tell me!
- Blane: What do you want to hear?
- Andie: Tell me!
- Blane: What?
- Andie: You're ashamed to be seen with me.
- Blane: No, I am not!
- Andie: You're ashamed to go out with me. You're terrified that you're goddamn rich friends won't approve.
[Andie hits Blane]
- Andie: Just say it!
[Andie hits him again]
- Andie: Just tell me the truth!
- Blane: You don't understand that it has nothing at all do with you.
[Andie runs away]
- Blane: [wipes a tear] Andie!
- Andie: You know your talking like that just because I'm going out with Blane
- Duckie: His name is Blane? Oh! That's a major appliance, that's not a name!
- Duckie: You know what an older women does for me?
- Iona: Changes your diapers?
- Duckie: Touché.
- Andie: What are you doing?
- Duckie: I had to use the powder room, so I figured I'd come in the back.
- Andie: I'm sure there are bathrooms all over the place!
- Duckie: I'm not nine, Andie, I know that.
- Andie: Were you here long?
- Duckie: No, no! Three, four... hours.
- Andie: I don't know what I'm doing!
- Iona: Wishful makeup!
- Andie: May I admire you?
- Duckie: If you wish!
- Andie: Well, not nothing. I mean, I kissed him...
- Iona: Anywhere interesting?
