The Baby-Sitters Club (1995)
Kristy Thomas: Hi, I'm Kristy. I'm the founding member of the Baby-Sitters Club. I don't mean to brag or anything but we're famous, here in Stoneybrook. Everybody knows us. That's because everybody uses us. You call one number, and get connected with seven incredible babysitters. This is Stacey, she's our club treasurer. She's good at keeping track of money, she's also good at spending it. Stace was raised in New York City. Sometimes she thinks she still lives there. That's Mary Anne. When we were little, we used to live next door to each other. She's kind of quiet, kind of serious. Why are we friends? They say opposites attract. Dawn's Mary Anne's stepsister. She grew up in California. Dawn really cares about the environment. Her biggest regret is that she wasn't born on earth day. Claudia's an amazing artist. She's REALLY talented. I mean, do you anybody who can take a fourk and a hammer and turn it into... That? And of course Mallory, she's a junior member of the club. She started her novel when she turned eleven and is determined to finish it by the time she's eleven and a half. Jessie's Mallory's best friend and another junior member of the club. Jessie's motto is ''Why walks when you can dance?''. You know, we're more than just a club. We're friends. Best friends. Nothing could ever change that.
Jessi: Stacey, how was your date with Luca?
Kristy Thomas: Smashing? What, did he hit you over the head with his charm?
Kristy Thomas: When can you start?
Alan Gray: Yesterday.
Kristy Thomas: You've got a deal.
Dawn Schafer: Kristy! He's a dweeb.
Kristy Thomas: He's a free dweeb!
Alan Gray: Yeah, I'm a free dweeb.
Mallory Pike: We're rich!
Jessi: We can almost buy a car!
Mallory Pike: In five years, we can drive it!
Kristy Thomas: Hey, you guys, if we raise enough money, we can have our own office!
Stacey: That's a great idea!
Mallory Pike: We could have a fax machine!
Jessi: Go international!
Claudia Kishi: That would sure let me off the hook if I flunk.
Mary Anne Spier: You're not going to flunk.
Kristy Thomas: Claude, I'll help you.
Claudia Kishi: [Hesitant, smiles] Okay.
Dawn Schafer: I say we start looking.
Mary Anne Spier: Stace, how many people signed up so far?
Stacey: For out last count, we have...
Kristy Thomas: [Hangs up the phone after booking a baby-sitting appointment with Jacky Rodowsky] I know Jackie Rodowsky's a walking disaster but I like him, okay? New business.
Claudia Kishi: We have a tragedy here! I flunked science and I have to go to summer school.
Jessi Ramsey: [Sarcastic] Aren't your parents going to kill you?
Claudia Kishi: Maybe.
Kristy Thomas: Today, using the BSC quick study method, you're going to learn about the human body!
Claudia Kishi: Don't bother. It doesn't interest me.
Mallory Pike: Does the Baby-Sitters Club interest you?
Claudia Kishi: It's my life.
Mallory Pike: Then get interested.
Luca: Why don't we go out on Saturday? We could go to the movie so if nothing is playing, you could show me around Stoneybrook.
Stacey: Well, this is kind of it. I mean, it's not like New York City or anything. That's where I grew up. Have you ever been there?
Luca: No, not yet.
Stacey: It's the best!
Luca: You mean, like you?
Rosie Wilder: Are you going to kiss her?
Luca: What ever gave you that idea, Rosalind?
Mary Anne Spier: [Referring to Kristy] She'll be here any minute.
Claudia Kishi: [Coldly] She's been late all summer.
Stacey: [Referring to Kristy's birthday cake] Why is the cake melting?
Jessi: [Tastes the cake with her finger] Who bought an ice-cream cake?
Stacey: [Knocks on door, Rosie's violin is heard in the background] Hello? Hello?
Rosie Wilder: [Opens the door, hugs Stacey] Hi, Stacey.
Stacey: Hi, Rosie.
[Referring to the violin]
Stacey: You're getting so good.
Rosie Wilder: Thank you.
Stacey: I have a little surprise for you in the kid kit: Extra stickers and puzzles.
Rosie Wilder: Great!
Stacey: [Holding the miniature American flag] Oh, and I have something for your little cousin. Where is he?
Luca: [Comes downstair] Hi, I'm Luca, the little cousin. You brought me a gift?
Stacey: [Emabarassed] Well, it's just a small... little... American flag thing.
Luca: Cool, very nationalistic. And you're...?
Stacey: Your sitter, I guess.
Rosie Wilder: I thought you were going to the movies.
Luca: I have my whole life to go to the movies.
Kristy Thomas: Dad, why did you come back if you're just going to hide?
Patrick Thomas: To see you. I missed you.
Kristy Thomas: Well, you could have came before. Nothing was stopping you.
Patrick Thomas: I tried.
Kristy Thomas: Dad, you sent like two postcards in five years, or something. I was always thinking you would come. You never did, ever. I wait for you every year, you never even called. You don't care about me and everyone who does care about me's mad at me. I can't do this anymore. I've never lied to my mom or my friends and since you've got here, that's all I've been doing and I hate it. It's all your fault. I'm going to tell Mom you're here.
Patrick Thomas: Kristy, we had a deal.
Kristy Thomas: Yeah. Well, Dad, I'm breaking it just like you broke all your promises.
Patrick Thomas: I'm here, aren't I?
[Claudia is arguing with Kristy for bailing on her when Kristy was supposed to help her study]
Kristy Thomas: Look, Claude, I'm sorry, OK?
Claudia Kishi: Sorry's not good enough.
Mary Anne Spier: She said she was sorry.
Claudia Kishi: Mary Anne!
Logan Bruno: [to Alan who is trying to get Dawn to like him and just squirted her with a novelty flower] I said give her a flower, not squirt her with one!
Kristy Thomas: Hey, guys. Sorry I'm late. Can we start?
Claudia Kishi: We already have. Okay, new business. The Miss Haberman problem.
Kristy Thomas: Who's Miss Haberman?
Dawn Schafer: She's our next door neighbour who's going to call the city and take away our permit.
Kristy Thomas: We don't need a permit, I checked it out!
Stacey: Well, it would've been nice if you were there to tell her that.
Kristy Thomas: I had an appointment, okay?
Claudia Kishi: Since when is a date an appointment?
Kristy Thomas: It wasn't a date! Look, Claude, I said I was sorry. I'll talk to her, it's no big deal.
Mary Anne Spier: It is a big deal, Kristy. We could lose the camp.
Kristy Thomas: I said I'd handle it, okay?
Stacey: I have to go meet Lucas.
Jessi: I have to sit for Becca.
Dawn Schafer: Come on, Mary Anne. The Masons are coming for dinner.
Mallory Pike: I have to finish my novel.
Luca: I'm coming back next summer.
Stacey: You are?
Stacey: [Smiles] I'll be fourteen.
Luca: [Smiles back] I know.
Margarite 'Cokie' Mason: Mary Ann, I got the most outrageous outfit for the concert.
Mary Anne Spier: I'm not going to cry.
Jessi Ramsey: Oh, Dawn. I heard that Alan Gray likes you.
Mallory Pike: Likes her? Or ''like'' likes her?
[Makes Jessi laugh]
Dawn Schafer: That dweeb? Spare me. It doesn't matter anyway because I don't like him. Or ''like'' like him.
Mary Anne Spier: Something's wrong here, you guys. School's out and I miss it.
Dawn Schafer: I know, it's not that I love it, just...
Mary Anne Spier: We don't get to see each other everyday?
Jessi Ramsey: And we end up baby-sitting at different houses.
Mallory Pike: We might as well be on seperate planets.
Mary Anne Spier: Yeah.
Bebe: [Referring to the stink bomb] We did it!
Margarite 'Cokie' Mason: Great! Did you pull the tab?
Grace: [Confused] We didn't pull anything.
Margarite 'Cokie' Mason: [Angrily] You were supposed to pull it, you freaks!
Alan Gray: [Referring to Dawn] She likes me. Oh, yeah, she really likes me.
Logan Bruno: [Sarcastically] Okay.
Kristy Thomas: [Hesitates, smiles] Friends forever.
[Blows out her candles]
Grace: She's a hermit?
Bebe: Isn't that some kind of animal?
Margarite 'Cokie' Mason: PERMIT, you IDIOTS!
Dawn Schafer: [Referring to Cokie] That girl is developing some really bad karma.
Grace: [Distracts Mary Anne so Cokie can talk to Logan] Mary Anne
Bebe: Mary Anne!
Mary Anne Spier: [Confused] Hi!
Mary Anne Spier: Yeah.
[about to leave]
Grace: [Stops her] Wait! What, um, classes are you taking next year?
Mary Anne Spier: I don't really know yet. Why?
Grace: [Bebe and Grace look at each other] Can I try on your riding pants?
Logan Bruno: Fifth row? Center? How'd you get 'em?
Margarite 'Cokie' Mason: I knew you'd say yes. Just think. You, me and smashing pumpkins!
Claudia Kishi: [after Dawn offers her a snack] Soymill chips? Forget it.
Dawn Schafer: They're good for sugar addiction!
Mallory Pike: [after getting off the phone with Kristy] We got cut off.
Stacey: [Worried] Where is she?
Mallory Pike: I don't know!
Dawn Schafer: [Turns to Mary Anne] Mary Anne?
Mary Anne Spier: I can't, I promissed.
Dawn Schafer: Mary Anne, something horrible could've happened.
Claudia Kishi: We have to find her.
Dawn Schafer: [Mary Anne hesitates] Mary Anne!
Mary Anne Spier: Kristy's dad came back... her real dad.
Jessi Ramsey: [Shocked] Wow.
Claudia Kishi: We have to call her mom.
Mary Anne Spier: No! Kristy made me swear!
Dawn Schafer: Well, we can't just stand there
Stacey: Mallory, when are your parents coming home?
Mallory Pike: [Sadly] Late.
Mary Anne Spier: We need a car to get there.
Stacey: I think I know someone.
[the girls gather around Stacey as she makes a phone call]
Stacey: You guys think I should've told him?
Kristy Thomas: What? Who?
Kristy Thomas: About what?
Stacey: I'm only thirteen!
Kristy Thomas: So?
Stacey: He's seventeen!
Kristy Thomas: [Shocked] That's ancient!
Claudia Kishi: He's a poet!
Stacey: He drives!
Claudia Kishi: He's a musical genius!
Stacey: He's been to Europe!
Kristy Thomas: He's FROM Europe!
Margarite 'Cokie' Mason: [to Bebe and Grace] Look at Kristy and her band of goody two shoes. What do they think they are? One big, happy family?
Stacey: Last time she was like this she wanted to open a Dude Ranch.
Margarite 'Cokie' Mason: [flirting] Logan, I meant to call you.
Logan Bruno: Oh, yeah?
Kristy Thomas: [Arrives with Jackie] Get lost, Cokie.
Margarite 'Cokie' Mason: Hello, Kristin.
[Referring to Jackie]
Margarite 'Cokie' Mason: Oh, you have a date. And I can see his age is the same as your I.Q.
Kristy Thomas: Who let you out of that bat cave, Margarite?
Bebe: She hates to be called that.
Grace: [Laughs] That's your real name?
Margarite 'Cokie' Mason: No... it's the mumbling of an idiot.
Dawn Schafer: Want some tahini?
Mary Anne Spier: [Smiles] I'll pass, thanks.
Dawn Schafer: [Sits next to Mary Anne] What's up with you and Kristy?
Mary Anne Spier: [Hesitant] Nothing.
Dawn Schafer: Well it doesn't look like nothing, you're always whispering!
Mary Anne Spier: That's not true.
Dawn Schafer: [Raising her tone] It is true!
Mary Anne Spier: Do you think I should get my ears pierced?
Dawn Schafer: Don't change the subject!
Mary Anne Spier: Please don't be mad at me. I'd tell you if I could. But I promised Kristy.
Dawn Schafer: [Coldly, stands up and leaves] Go be her sister then.
