Poison Ivy (1992)
Sylvie Cooper: [voice over narration] I still think about her. I guess, still love her. She might have been even more alone than I was. I miss her.
Ivy: It's nice and cool in here. I missed my ride. Can you take me to Olympic and Fairfax?
Darryl Cooper: No.
Sylvie Cooper: Just a sec
[to her Father]
Sylvie Cooper: Dad, she's my best friend.
Sylvie Cooper: The fact that Fred hated ever human except me really meant something.
Sylvie Cooper: There's something about her. I don't know. Those lips. You know lips are suppose to be the perfect reflection of a woman's anatomy. Not that I'm a lesbian... Well. Maybe I am. No, definitely not. I told my mother I was just for shock value. She said "fine. As long as you don't smoke".
Georgie Cooper: Leave it open.
Sylvie Cooper: It's supposed to rain tonight.
Georgie Cooper: Then open it wider. What kinda girls are impressed by suicide?
Sylvie Cooper: I like her.
Georgie Cooper: She has a hole in her nose.
Sylvie Cooper: Yeah well a lot of girls do.
Georgie Cooper: I think you'd be embarrassed.
Sylvie Cooper: What?
Georgie Cooper: Getting caught lying all the time. Did you tell her you're black too?
Sylvie Cooper: You don't want me to have any friends do you?
Georgie Cooper: People you have to lie to so they like you arn't worth your friendship.
Sylvie Cooper: I like the ivy.
Ivy: Well the cross makes me think of death, but the ivy is life. Sort of the tragic and hopeful you know.
Sylvie Cooper: So what are you busted for?
Ivy: I gotta keep a certain grade point average. I'm slipping in biology.
Sylvie Cooper: Please, stop.
Ivy: I want to hear you say it! Are you excusing me of something?
Sylvie Cooper: Why? Did you do something?
Sylvie Cooper: She was definitely a turnoff, too overt. Look at her. Obviously, big problems. Most girls don't fly through the air with their skirt around their waist. Supergirl at least had the decency to wear tights.
Sylvie Cooper: Lips are supposed to be a perfect reflection of another part of a woman's anatomy.
Sylvie Cooper: She said, Fine, just as long as you don't smoke. Which, of course, is my main joy in life. Probably oral compensation.
Sylvie Cooper: TMJ. It's stress-related. It gives you terrible headaches, makes your jaw stiff.
Darryl Cooper: Almost killed Burt Reynolds.
Georgie Cooper: People you have to lie to aren't worth your friendship.
Ivy: One day with the top down is better than a lifetime in a box.
Sylvie Cooper: Her acceptance didn't make me think less of her. It made me think more of me.
Sylvie Cooper: I always seem to be looking at life from the wrong side of the window.
Sylvie Cooper: I know it's stupid to be jealous about a dog.It's probably because I have low self-esteem.
Sylvie Cooper: I guess you give up things when you take on a friendship.
