Some Kind of Wonderful (1987)
Keith: Well, I like art, I work in a gas station, my best friend is a tomboy. These things don't fly too well in the American high school.

Watts: [putting on Keith's diamond earrings] What do you think?
Keith: You look good wearing my future.

Keith Nelson: You can't tell a book by its cover.
Watts: No, but you can tell how much it's gonna cost you.
Keith Nelson: Wow, I never knew you were so deep.
Watts: You want shallow, call Amanda Jones.

Watts: It must be a drag to be a slave to the male sex drive.
Keith: It's not just sex.
Watts: Oh, you want to start a book club with her?

Keith Nelson: I'm sorry. I'm sorry I was so hard on you.
Watts: Me too.
Keith Nelson: You always hurt the ones you love.
Watts: So when are you going to beat the shit out of Amanda Jones?

Laura Nelson: This is not true. It can't be. This has got to be the most hilarious rumor ever floated. Right?
Cindy Nelson: What are you talking about?
Laura Nelson: Last night, I hear everybody talking about how Keith has asked this girl out.
Cindy Nelson: No way.
Laura Nelson: Check it out. This girl is popular, she's beautiful... and obviously in the middle of some emotional shootout to consent to date the human tater tot. What did you do to her, Keith? Threaten her life?
Keith Nelson: I just asked her out.
Laura Nelson: Well, her boyfriend's a man, for Christ's sake.
Carol Nelson: Hey, hey, hey.
Laura Nelson: He's extensively easy on the eyes, he's a total buck, and you're - you're... Keith.
Carol Nelson: Is she nice?
Laura Nelson: Mother, the girl *is* sex.
Cindy Nelson: For God's sake, I'm eating!
Cliff Nelson: Glad you got time to think about the girls. Between the girls and your art kick, you have no time for anything important. You'll be dead and buried before you get off your butt and apply to a college.
Laura Nelson: Ease up, Dad. Any fool can get into a college. Only a precious few may say the same about Amanda Jones. Am I wrong?

Hardy Jenns: Look, I'm perfectly willing to forget this. Okay? I see no reason in carrying this on any longer. It was a joke. It's gone too far. It's over. Okay?
Keith Nelson: You want the truth? You want the plain truth? You're over.
[Keith turns to leave]
Amanda Jones: Are you just gonna leave?
Keith Nelson: There isn't anything I could do to him that he hasn't already done to himself.
Amanda Jones: I wish I could live with that.
[Amanda walks up to Hardy and slaps him across the face. She then slaps him again]

[referring to Watts driving them on their date]
Amanda Jones: So, do you always bring an extra girl when you go out?
Keith: Well, I like to cover my bets.
Amanda Jones: That's very cute. I'll have to remember that.

Amanda Jones: Look, uh, how this happened is as much of a MYSTERY to me as it is to you. I'm not any more thrilled about it than you are. So, why don't you just STOP giving me attitude, PLEASE?
Keith: I'm giving YOU attitude?
Amanda Jones: Yeah. Like on Friday, pulling that He-Man power play, about how I have to ask my friends for permission. I didn't appreciate it. I don't like being treated like that.
Keith: Well, it's TRUE, isn't it?
Amanda Jones: At least I have friends.
Keith: Are you sure?

Amanda Jones: - You think I used you?
Keith: - Didn't you?
Amanda Jones: - I don't know... in a way.
Keith: - In a way? Amanda, there's only one you use someone - you either do or you don't!
Amanda Jones: - And you didn't use me? God, you hypocrite! What's hanging in that museum, huh? My soul? No, it's my face. You're using me to pay back every guy with more money and more power than you. Paint it in any colour you want. It's still you using me.
