  • [during her beauty exam] Lady, I'm not butchering your hair. It's a free haircut, so stop you bitching, before I cut it all off, you fat cow!
  • [about her dad] First guy to walk out of my life, definitely not the last. Funny things, you and me. You always stayin' away from love, me always chasin' after it.
  • Don't let people stand in your way. They're just people, like you and me! Well, maybe not like you. I don't know if I have ever met anyone like you before.
  • He was like an angel, you know? I never knew life could be like that. He was the one thing I followed through in my life, the one thing I didn't give up on. I was good at loving him.
  • I am going to fall in love with you. You don't have to love me back. I am going to give you my heart.
  • My life is like watching the Three Stooges in Spanish!
  • What worries me is when someone is as screwed up as these guys doesn't want me!
  • He doesn't make sense, I don't make sense, together we make sense.
  • Magic records and a baboon heart...


  • I am not very good with people.
  • Once people got used to stay away, they always stay away. I never got close to anyone.
  • You are my peace.


  • Look at him! He's like a tumor sittin' over there. Ugh, and his hair! It just bothers me so much!
  • It's too bad though. I'd do him, if he wasn't so dumb!
  • It's not right to feel shitty this time of year, but everybody does. It's like this is life, and once you go through it long enough, you realize what the flavor is. And it sure ain't vanilla!


Caroline: Adam, your heart is diseased! You need a new one.
Adam: But this is my heart! I'm afraid that if they take it away, I won't be able to love you the same.
Caroline: You love with your mind and your soul, not your heart.
Adam: [touching his chest] Then how come I hurt here when you're not with me?

Adam: Do you like music, Caroline.
Caroline: Mmm. That's the first time I heard you say my name. It sounded... nice.
Adam: Would you like to listen to my records, Caroline?... Caroline.

Caroline: What's your dog's name?
Adam I don't know. He never told me.

Caroline: I think I'll go inside now.
Steve: I'll call you later, alright?
Caroline: No, don't do that. Just leave me alone.
Steve: I didn't mean to hurt you, Caroline.
Caroline: Yeah, well. You did.

Caroline: When did you get here?
Adam: Ten.
Caroline: Ten? That was almost two hours ago. You'd rather be out here with my cat than inside with... [realizing] than inside with a room full of strangers and relatives.

Caroline: You don't have to come as my boyfriend or anything. Though I'd like you to.
[Adam nods]
Caroline: Is that a yes?
Adam: Yes.
Caroline: Say yes again.

Caroline: You followed me home.

Caroline: Well, I mean, don't be sorry... I just...
Adam: I wasn't finished.
Caroline: Finish.
Adam: I'm sorry I was late that night.
Caroline: I never hear you speak, and when you do, you apologize for saving me?
Adam: I wonder if you think about me.
Caroline: Of course I think about you!
Adam: I wasn't finished!
Caroline: Finish.
Adam: I wonder if you think about me, as much as I think about you.

Caroline: I have fallen...
Adam: Are you hurt?
Caroline: I wasn't finished.
Adam: Finish.
Caroline: I have fallen so in love with you, so much more than I said I would.

Adam I love hockey.
Caroline: You didn't even know what a power-play was.
Adam: I know. But next time you can tell me.

Cindy: You are like wet sand in my underwear.
Jim: Ouch.

Caroline: Star light, Star bright, First star I see tonight, wish I may wish I might I might, Have this wish I wish tonight.
Adam: That's Mars.
Caroline: What?
Adam: That's Mars.You just wished on a planet.
Caroline: Figures.
