Quotes

Michael Fitzsimmons: So are you going to marry Mr. Blue Impala and graze around with all the other sheep for the rest of your life?

Peggy Sue: No... I already did that.

Michael Fitzsimmons: Gilfond's okay, except that he thinks Hemingway is great literature.

Peggy Sue: And you don't?

Michael Fitzsimmons: He's a fisherman. The most overrated writer of the century. I mean, man he is the perfect American Author - fat, violent, drunk.

Peggy Sue: Maybe you're confusing his life with his work.

Michael Fitzsimmons: A writer's life is his work. Jack Kerouac doesn't have to kill a bull to have something to write about. I mean, man, he's out there burning, feeling, grooving on life.

Evelyn Kelcher: Peggy, I don't mean to be intrusive, but are you having problems with Charlie?

Peggy Sue: A lot of things are confusing right now, Charlie is just one of them.

Evelyn Kelcher: Is Charlie pressuring you into doing things you don't think you should be doing?

Peggy Sue: What do you mean?

Evelyn Kelcher: Peggy, you know what a penis is? Stay away from it!

Evelyn Kelcher: What's the matter, have you and Charlie had a fight?

Peggy Sue: Yes.

Evelyn Kelcher: What about?

Peggy Sue: House payments.

Peggy Sue: I am a grown woman with a life time of experience that you can't understand.

Charlie Bodell: Yeah, girls mature faster than guys.

Richard Norvik: I would be very careful about this if I were you. What if you fall into the hands of some madman with plans to manipulate your brain?

Peggy Sue: Well, that's why I was getting a divorce!

[Peggy Sue purposely squirts ink across Delores' blouse]

Delores Dodge: AHHHHH!

Peggy Sue: Oh I'm so sorry!

Delores Dodge: YOU DID THAT ON PURPOSE!

Peggy Sue: These pens are so tricky...

Delores Dodge: Go stuff your bra!

Peggy Sue: I beg your pardon?

Delores Dodge: Take a long walk off a short pier!

Peggy Sue: [amused] Have a nice day!

Peggy Sue: Then you think time travel is possible for people?

Richard Norvik: Yes. It's absolutely possible for people, for dogs, for cancan girls.

Peggy Sue: Oh, then I'm not crazy.

Richard Norvik: Well, I really don't know if you're crazy. I know most people think I am.

Michael Fitzsimmons: But we had heat, baby. Passion! Fire! We owe it to ourselves to fuse together, at least one more time.

Peggy Sue: Oh, that's a good line. You are gonna be a terrific writer.

Michael Fitzsimmons: You thinks so?

Peggy Sue: Yeah.

Michael Fitzsimmons: I'm going to check out of this bourgeois motel, push myself from the dinner table and say, "No more Jell-o for me, mom!"

Peggy Sue: It's funny. It's really funny. You bought an Edsel.

Jack Kelcher: Young lady, what's the matter with you? Are you drunk?

Peggy Sue: Uh, just a little. I had a tough day.

[Peggy Sue hands in her algebra test]

Mr. Snelgrove: And what's the meaning of this, Peggy Sue?

Peggy Sue: Well, Mr Snelgrove, I happen to know that in the future I will not have the slightest use for algebra, and I speak from experience.

Richard Norvik: I have this theory that time is like a burrito. A burrito is this mexican food that I had when my parents took me to Disneyland.

Peggy Sue: I *KNOW* what a *BURRITO* is

Peggy Sue: Charlie, it's like there's this window into my heart and you can open and crawl in whenever you want. Well, I've got to close it or nothing is ever going to change.

Peggy Sue: Grandpa, if you had a chance to go back and do it all differently, what would you have changed?

Barney Alvorg: Well, I would have taken better care of my teeth.
