Boys Don't Cry (1999)
Brandon: Lana, you are one cranky girl.
Lana: Yeah, well, you'd be cranky, too, Mister I'm Going To Memphis Graceland Tennessee, if you were stuck in a town where there's nothing to do but go bumper skiing and chase bats every night of your evil fucking life.

Lana: God, I hate my life.
Lana's Mom: [drunk on the sofa] Lana?
Brandon: I hate your life, too.

Brandon: Boy, I... I really fucked up. I borrowed one of Candace's checks, then I got that speeding ticket, and this fake I.D. I guess, I just need to learn to stay home, huh?
Lana's Mom: Brandon, I invite you into my home and you expose my daughter to your sickness. D'ever think about Lana in all this?
Brandon: That's all I been thinking about.
