She's the Man (2006)
Viola: You know it bro'

Viola: [as Sebastian] I gotta be completely honest. The whole dissecting thing kinda freaks me out, so uh... I think you may have to take the reins on this one.
Olivia: Wow, most guys would have never admit that.
Viola: Oh crap! You're right.
Olivia: No, don't worry I think it's refreshing.
Viola: You do?
Malcolm: [interupts] No paper near the bunsen burner.
Viola: Wait!
Olivia: What's this? poems?
Viola: Lyrics. They're his... my, my old stuff.
Olivia: [reading] "Wake up I've been waiting for you".
[Finishes]
Olivia: Those are really good. So honest.
Viola: I know. I keep telling him... me... meself... my... myself.
Malcolm: I write songs too, Olivia.
Olivia: Really? Wonderful.
Malcolm: Check it out.
[sings]
Malcolm: I see you through your window, while I'm standing on a tree outside

Viola: I get to take a shower. I get to take a shower.
Malcolm: [startled gasp then realizes he forgot to introduce himself] Malcolm Festes, Dorm Director. Shower shoes are to be worn in the bathroom at all times except when in the actual shower... Did you not read your "Dorm Life" pamphlet? It was in your cubby.
[Duke walks in and hits Malcolm behind the head with a towel. Malcolm emits a high-pitched squeal]
Viola: Sup dog?
Duke: Yeah, what's kickin', homie?
Viola: Later.
Duke: Hey, you forgot, ew...
[holding up Viola's chest bandage]
Duke: This, coolio.
Viola: Word, g-money.

Viola: [Viola's mom shows her a dress] Echh. No. Sorry, Mom. I have a strict no-ruffles policy.
Daphne: Sometimes I just think you just might as well be your brother.

Viola: So, what brings you here?
Duke: Well, a few days ago I kissed this girl at a kissing booth. And now, I just can't seem to stop thinking about it.
Viola: Neither can she.
Duke: Plus, I miss my roommate. I really liked him.
Viola: Well, he's right in here.
[pointing to her heart]
Viola: Listen, I know I should have told you who I was, but I was afraid. I'm sorry.
Duke: Well, you know maybe if I had known you were a girl, we wouldn't have talked like we did, and got to know each other the same way. And that would've been a shame.
Viola: Just so you know, everything you told me when I was a guy, just made me like you so much more as a girl.
Duke: Ok, but just from here on in, everything would just be alot easier if you stayed a girl.

Justin: [kisses Viola] Ok, you are really getting good.
Viola: Aw, you too. I mean when we first started going out, you couldn't kiss at all.
Justin: I meant at soccer.
Viola: Aw, really?
Justin: Absolutely. You're already better than half the guys on my team.
Viola: Hmm... probably more than half.
[kisses justin]
Justin: What do you mean I couldn't kiss at all?
Viola: Don't worry, I've taught you well.

Duke: [Using one of Viola's tampons after getting into a fight with Justin at the carnival] Oh, yeah, I uh, borrowed one of your... yeah... and you're right, they really do work.
Viola: Oh my god you're hurt...
[clears throat]
Viola: I mean, suck it up, be a man and rub some dirt on it
Duke: Okay, I'll rub some dirt in it...

Daphne: [after hearing about Viola breaking up with Justin] But why? He's so handsome, and rugged, and chiseled, and great.
Viola: Then why don't you date him mom?
Daphne: [pauses to fantasize and giggles] oh no... I couldn't.

Viola: No man... if you wanna kiss her... You go right ahead and you kiss her! I mean, knock your self out! You just take her... then kiss her. Then kiss the crap out of her!
Duke: Okay

Viola: You know how it is. New school, new babe pool.

Toby: I need your advice man. I got lady troubles.
Viola: I'm here for you bro. I got a lifetime of knowledge.

Viola: So, uh, you play the beautiful game... bros... brothers... brethren?

Duke: I kinda got into it with your sister's ex.
Viola: Really. Why?
Duke: He kinda saw us making out at the kissing booth.
Viola: Wait... you kissed her?

Toby: Seriously, how old are you?
Viola: [as Sebastian] I skipped a couple grades. I'm brilliant. Shh.

[after getting hit in the crotch with a soccer ball by Toby]
Viola: [as Sebastian] Oh. Right. OWW! OH, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! IT BURNS!

Viola: Speaking as a completely objective third party observer with absolutely no personal interest in the matter...

Viola: Speaking as a completely third party objective with absolutely no personal interest in the matter, I'm not really sure that you and Olivia really mesh well together.

Viola: [as Sebastian, watching Kia strut away from him/her in front of Duke, Andrew, and Toby] I'd tap that.

Sebastian: [indicating Viola's false sideburns] Are those real?
Viola: Oh yeah, I'm growing sideburns now- NO!

Toby: Is your sister hot?
Viola: [as Sebastian] Uh... I guess so... she's got a great personality
Toby: Ew

Viola: Okay, who's your daddy?
Duke: Huh?
Viola: I got her to consider you! You're half way in man!
Duke: Um, uh, ok, so, should I ask her out?
Viola: No. You don't want to freak her out, you've got to have a casual conversation first, hello?
Viola: [after Duke looks away in frustration] Why do I get the feeling you don't do this very often?
Duke: Man, I just, I'm not really good at talking to girls.
Viola: Why? You're hot!
Duke: What?
Viola: [clears throat] Ya know, you're an appealing guy- man- guy- guy man.
Duke: Look, I don't know, I just always say the wrong- I just always say the wrong thing.
Viola: OK. Alright, come on, get up. I wanna trying something where I'm gonna act like a girl and you're gonna talk to me, ok?
Duke: Ew. Do, do I have to?
Viola: Yes. Cause, "I'm Viola. Duke, nice to meet you."
Duke: OK, that was creepy. You really just sounded like a girl just then.
Viola: I used to imitate my sister all the time. I got really good at it. Come on, get up. Ask me some questions and if the chemistry's right, things will just start flowin'.
Duke: Questions about what?
Viola: Anything. Ask me if I like... cheese.
Duke: [laughing] Um, ok. Do you... like... cheese?
Viola: [Girl's voice] Why yes I do. My favourite's gouda.
Duke: I like gouda too?

Olivia: You're right.
Viola: I know.
Olivia: The next time I see Sebastian, I am gonna march right up to him...
Viola: You march.
Olivia: ...I'm gonna tell him how I feel...
Viola: You tell him.
Olivia: ...and then I'm going to kiss him so passionately...
Viola: What?
Olivia: ...that even the people he hates will feel pleasure.

Viola: I just can't do this.
Paul: Just remember, inside every girl, there's a boy. That came out wrong but you know what I mean.

Viola: So what about the thing... we talked about it... that you're gonna do later?...
Duke: What thing? I'm... I'm thingless...

Coach Pistonek: Hi girls, heard the bad news.
Viola: Bad? It's a disaster!
Coach Pistonek: I know. Well if there's anything I can help you with, you just say the word.
Viola: As a matter of fact, there is. We want to try out for the boy's team.
[Other girls agree]
Coach Pistonek: [laughs] Uh, anything besides that.
Viola: Coach, come on! You know that we're good enough!
Coach Pistonek: I don't know that that's a thing that I know.
Viola: All we're asking for is one shot.
[Other girls agree]
Coach Pistonek: Girls, we have two weeks before school starts. Then we open against Illyria, a rivalry game. We have to win.
Viola: And we can help you win.
Justin: Hey, baby. What's going on coach?
Coach Pistonek: Umm, girls here want to try out for the team.

Viola: What are you talking about? Why are you lying?
Justin: Viola! End of discussion.
Viola: FINE. End of relationship.
Justin: Baby, don't be like that. I just don't want to see you get hurt.
Viola: Aww. You are so full of...
Coach Pistonek: [whistle blows] Back to practice.

Viola: ...and when I close my eyes, I see you for who you truly are, which is UUUG-LAY.

Viola: Be a man. Suck it up and rub some dirt in IT.
Duke: All right, I'll rub some dirt on it...

Viola: You know the percentage of bands that actually make it to the big time?
Sebastian: Probably the same as female soccer players...

Viola: [getting into catfight] You are messing with the wrong man.

Viola: [as Sebastian] Eunice!
[clears throat]
Viola: Uh, Eunice! Why didn't you wake me?
Eunice: You looked so serene. I made breakfast, darling.

Malcolm: I am convinced he's hiding something.
Principal Gold: Oh, nonsense, Malcolm. He may be a little lost and confused, but deep down he's an all-american, red-blooded male, just like yourself.
Viola: [walking by, dressed as Sebastian, while on the phone] Mom, I will pick out my own dress. And no, I will not wear high heels. Because heels are a male invention designed to make women's butts look smaller... and to make it harder for them to runaway.
Principal Gold: Malcolm, have you ever tried to run away in high heels?
Malcolm: No, sir, I...
Principal Gold: Not that easy. Not that easy...

Viola: What does your heart tell you?
Duke: What?
Viola: I mean... which one would you rather see NAKED?

Coach Dinklage: [about to assign shirts and skins] OK, shirts and skins!
Viola: Pardon me, sir. I have to be a shirt.
Coach Dinklage: What?
Viola: I'm allergic to the sun.
Coach Dinklage: ...You're allergic to the sun?
Viola: Very, very, very deathly, deathly allergic.
Coach Dinklage: Well, we like to accomodate here in Illiria, so I'll follow you around with a parasol. Alright, Nancy boy?
[looks at his clipboard]
Coach Dinklage: You're a shirt.

Viola: You know what? If you can't join 'em, beat 'em.

Viola: [as Sebastian] Hi, Eunice. Sorry for running out on our date.
Eunice: It's okay. My intensity scares some people.

Monique: Hello, Viola.
Viola: Oh, boy. This isn't good.
Monique: And hello to you little... homewrecker.
Olivia: Uh, who are you?
Monique: I am Sebastian's girlfriend.
Viola: Ex-Girl-Friend.
Monique: Okay. Everybody's gotta stop saying that.
Olivia: Oh. You were the one he dumped at the pizza parlor the other day.
Monique: Nonononononono, he did not dump me. We're just going through a little bit of a rough patch.
Olivia: Oh? I heard he dumped you. He dumped you big. It was just like a big, huge dumping.

Justin: Could you be a girl for just 5 seconds
Viola: Ok... First of all it's not a stupid soccer issue and... you're a jerk. Oh look at that, times up.
[slaps him in the face]

Viola: Quit blushing! That's lame.
Duke: Shut up, I'm not blushing.

Viola: [figure emerges from the fog] I didn't think you'd show up. It really means a lot to me that you're here. Say something.
Groundskeeper: I gotta turn the sprinklers on.

Duke: [after seeing Olivia nod at Viola and wave] Dude you know her?
Viola: Talked to her for like a second.

Duke: This is perfect. You spend an hour with her every other day. You can convince her to go out with me!
Viola: Dude, she's had that option for, like, three and a half years.

Viola: I can do this. I am a dude. I am a hunky dude! I'm a badass hunky dude!

Duke: You know... it's crazy how wrong you can be about a person... just crazy... You think that they are one thing and then they turn out to be the exact opposite. You know what? Save it. We were suppose to be friends.
Viola: We are friends.
[Duke showes Viola/Sebastian against the wall]
Duke: You dont even know the meaning of the word.

Duke: Its not gonna be that bad, Olivia's gonna be there. the perfect opportunity for me to lay some groundwork.
Viola: Oh, Olivia's gonna be there. And my sister, and Monique, and you, and my mom. great.

Cheryl: [making bizarre arm gestures] Who's ready to come out?
Viola: [imitating her expression] Kill me.

Viola: SEBASTIAN!
Daphne: Were you just talking with your brother?
Viola: No. Yes. On the phone. He's at dad's. BYE DAD.

Toby: [cough] Incoming.
Viola: Check out the booty on that blondie.

Andrew: So you stick 'em up your nose?
Viola: Yeah! What, you've, you've never done that?
[Boys shake head]
Viola: Oh my! Beckhem does it all the time.
Duke: Serious?
Viola: Yes. Look, let me show you how to do it. Take that off and whatever that is, and, and you stick it right in. It absorbs right up!
Duke: That's disgusting!
Andrew: Oh my god! You're room-mates a freak!

Daphne: So Monique's getting you all excited about being a debutant, huh?
Viola: Thuper duper exthited! Have a good carnival!

Monique: Sebastian!
[Monique mistakes Viola for Sebastian]
Viola: Ow!
Monique: Eww... It's you. God you and your brother look scarily alike from the back. I think it's your total lack of curves.
Viola: Hey Monique, it's so good to see you too!
Monique: Hmm. I'm looking for Sebastian. Where is he?
Viola: I don't know.
Monique: Just remind your brother how lucky he is to be in my life. And tell him to give me a all if he wants to stay in it, okay?

Viola: I am? Thanks, I, guess.
9 Year Old Boy: You don't have to flirt with her first, okay, genius? You're paying for it.

Viola: Well, it's the least I can do.
Duke: Uh, ok - here I go. Um - uh...
[They kiss]

[singing]
Duke: I'm going out with Olivia...
Viola: What the hell, I thought you like Viola now!
Duke: Dude, come on, you're a guy. What would you do?
[sings again]
Duke: If the hottest girl in school came to you and asked you on a date?
Viola: I'll be right back!


Malvolio (2009)
Viola: Malvolio? Have you talked to Sebastian about this?
Olivia: No, I didn't want to upset him.
Viola: Well, good. This whole thing is ridiculous! Malvolio is dead.
Olivia: I Know, but I'm scared. I think I should have said something.
Viola: Does this dress show too much cleavage?
Olivia: No, It's nice.
Viola: Damn. Olivia, If I were you I would just forget about the whole thing. Malvolio is dead, we've made sure of that.

Duke Orsino: [to Viola/Cesario]
Duke Orsino: Boy, thou hast said to me a thousand times thou never shouldst love woman like to me.
Viola: And all those sayings will I overswear.
Duke Orsino: Give me thy hand. Your master quits you; and for your service done him, so much against the mettle of your sex, here is my hand. You shall from this time be your master's mistress.
