The Craft (1996)
Bonnie: We were just wondering; do you still have any powers?
Rochelle: 'Cause we don't.
[Bonnie shots her a look]
Sarah: So, if you ever just want to hang out and chant or call the corners...
Sarah: [scathing] Maybe. Hold your breath until I call.
Rochelle: [as she and Bonnie start walking away] She probably doesn't have any powers anyway.
Sarah: [Turns around with a look of concentration. Wind blows, clouds cover the sky. Lightening flashes; a bolt hitting a tree branch which falls close to Bonnie and Rochelle. They stumble to the ground to avoid it, and the sky returns to normal. Sarah stares at them with a hard expression] Be careful. You don't want to end up like Nancy.
Nancy: What's going on? Why aren't you dead?
Sarah: Manon. He came to me. Saved me. Oh, and by the way. He wanted me to give you a message. You're in big shit. He says you've abused the gifts that he's given you, and now you're going to have to pay the price.
Nancy: [her fingers turn to snakes] What's going on?
Sarah: Where did Bonnie and Rochelle go? They just ran out of here without even saying good-bye. That's bad manners.
Chris: [handing sarah a flower] I wanna apologize for those guys in French. They're assholes.
Sarah: [droping the flower] Yeah well, you know what they say. You are who you hang with.
Chris: Yeah right... wait, did you just call me an asshole?
Sarah: [chuckels] Sorry, my defenses are up. People here have been really rude to me.
Sarah: By the power of three times three, make them see, make them see.
Sarah: Did you tell your friends?
Sarah: That you're a lying sack of shit.
Chris: No... b-but I will!
Nancy: [Performing the spell to evoke the spirit; calling the corners] Hail to the guardians of the watchtowers of the East, the powers of air and invention. Hear me! Us! Hear us!
Bonnie: Hail to the guardians of the watchtowers of the South, the powers of fire and feeling. Hear us.
Rochelle: Hail to the guardians of the watchtowers of the West, powers of water and intuition. Hear us.
Sarah: Hail to the guardians of the watchtowers of the North, by the powers of mother and earth. Hear us.
Nancy: Aid us in our magical workings on this May's eve.
Nancy: [Continues with a new chant] Serpent of old, ruler of the deep. Guardian of the bitter sea. Show us your glory. Show us your power! We pray of thee, we pray of thee. We invoke thee.
Rochelle: You guys, maybe he'll really listen to us now.
Sarah: What's that? That's like God?
Bonnie: No. Man invented God. This is much older then that.
Sarah: Do you guys worship the devil?
[the other three girls laugh at Sarah]
Nancy: No. It's like God and the Devil. I mean, it's everything. It's the trees, it's the ground, it's the rocks, it's the moon... it's everything.
Sarah: It's nature.
Nancy: If God and the Devil were playing football, Manon would be the stadium that they played on. It would be the sun that shone down on them.
Lirio: [to Sara, Bonnie, and Rochelle] True magic is neither black, nor white - it's both because nature is both. Loving and cruel, all at the same time.
Lirio: [Bonnie and Rochelle laugh. Sara stares, taking in every word of Lirio's speech, as she continues] The only good or bad is in the heart of the witch. Life keeps a balance on its own. You understand?
Rochelle: [giggling] Not really.
[Bonnie laughs. Sara continues to listen patiently to Lirio]
Lirio: [tone becomes slightly stern] Well, then understand this: whatever you send out there you get back times three.
Rochelle: [No longer laughing, but still skeptical, as is Bonnie] Wait, we didn't read that in any book.
Lirio: [Matter-of-fact] No, it's part of a basic spiritual truth. Said in many ways in many faiths: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you".
Nancy: What's wrong with your scars, Sarah?
[Nancy slashes at Sarah's wrists with her dagger]
Sarah: It isn't real.
Nancy: Then why are you still bleeding? Run! Run to your up room like a little coward you are. She's so pathetic!
Rochelle: All these songs are by Connie Francis.
Grace: Yeah, isn't that great? Since I was a little girl all I've wanted in life was a jukebox that played nothing but Connie Francis records.
Bonnie: That's great.
Rochelle: Who's Connie Francis?
Grace: Who's Connie Francis? Honey, listen and learn! Connie Francis!
Laura Lizzie: Ow! You pulled my hair out!
Sarah: Sorry, I thought I saw a bug. They have shampoo for that, you know.
Laura Lizzie: Stupid bitch.
Chris: You're just jealous!
Nancy: Jealous? Jealous? You don't even exist to me! You don't exist! You are nothing! You are shit! You don't exist. The only way you know how to treat women is by treating them like whores! Well, you're the whore! And this is gonna stop! Do you understand! Do you understand what I'm saying? Hmm?
Chris: [frightened] I'm sorry!
Nancy: Oh, he's sorry! He's sorry, he's sorry, he's sorry, he's sorry, he's sorry!
Nancy: Sorry, my ass!
[Nancy pushes Chris out a window and kills him]
Sarah: What's wrong with her?
Rochelle: Her spell's not working.
Bonnie: What spell?
Rochelle: I don't know. She doesn't want to be white trash anymore. I told her, "You're white honey! Just get over it."
Nancy: You know, in the old days, if a witch betrayed her coven, they would kill her.
Nancy: You know, if I were as pathetic as you are, I would have killed myself ages ago. You should get on with it.
Nancy: Have you ever heard of invoking the spirit? It's when you call him... Manon. It's like... it's like you take him into you. It's like he fills you. He takes everything that's gone wrong in your life and makes it all better again.
Sarah: Nothing makes everything all better again.
Nancy: Maybe not for you...
Chris: Sarah, come on, I mean... you look like you need to talk to somebody anyway.
Sarah: How do you know what I look like? We're talking on the phone.
Lirio: You know how to use candles?
Sarah: Yeah, you light the wick.
Lirio: [Smiles] More than that.
Nancy: He comes on to anything with tits, Sarah.
Bonnie: Except me.
Sarah: I'm not watching him.
Nancy: He spreads disease.
Nancy: I speak from personal experience.
[after yelling at Chris]
Nancy: HE'S A JERK!
Nancy: So hot-stuff how did it go?
Sarah: How did what go?
Nancy: Your date with Chris.
Rochelle: Chris already told everybody.
Sarah: [confused] Told everybody what?
Bonnie: That you guys "did it".
Sarah: But we didn't... do it.
Nancy: Well then he was just trying to save-face because he's going around the whole school saying that you were the "lousiest lay he's EVER had" and coming from him that's pretty bad.
Sarah: [looking over to the other girls in the classroom who were giggling] UH UH.
[hoping it wasn't true]
Rochelle: He said the same stuff about Nancy.
Nancy: Told you he was a jerk.
Bonnie: The almanac says today will bring an arrival or something.
Nancy: Yeah, wonderful. I'm getting my rag.
Bonnie: A new wholeness and with it a new balance, earth air, fire, water... maybe it's our fourth!
Nancy: We don't need a fourth.
Bonnie: Nancy, We need someone to call the corners; North, South, East, and West.
Rochelle: Four would make a circle
Nancy: Maybe she could be our fourth?
[motions to female security guard]
Nancy: I love a woman in uniform!
Laura Lizzie: Oh God look, there is a pubic hair in my brush. Oh no wait, wait. That's just one of Rochelle's little nappy hairs.
Rochelle: Why are you doing this to me, Laura? Do you think you're funny?
Laura Lizzie: You really wanna know why?
Rochelle: Yes, I really wanna know why.
Laura Lizzie: Because I don't like negroids.
Nancy: [noticing Sarah's cuts] What's up with that?
Sarah: [embarrassed] I slit my wrists.
Bonnie: What you'd do it with?
Sarah: A-a kitchen knife.
Bonnie: [surprised] You even did it the right way.
Nancy: [reassuring her] PUNK ROCK! Let's go.
Rochelle: The right way? How do you know the right way?
Bonnie: [defensive] Shut up Rochelle.
Rochelle: Well how do you know?
Sarah: Hey, Chris. Fuck you!
Mitt: But I will.
[looks to Trey as Sarah runs off, upset]
Mitt: She's gonna cry, then I'm gonna cry, and we're all gonna cry!
Sarah: [Braiding a strand of Laura's hair into Rochelle's] Laura really has split ends.
Sarah: I guess this confirms she's not a natural blonde.
[tone becomes contemplative]
Rochelle: What do you think will happen to Laura?
Sarah: I don't know. If she leaves you alone, nothing will happen to her. Nothing good.
Bonnie: [to an attractive passer-by] Hi!
[he continues walking]
Bonnie: Don't be shy honey. Nice ass!
Bonnie: What? He has a cute butt.
Sarah: You're a slut.
Rochelle: Maybe you should ask him out.
Sarah: You know it.
Bonnie: [laughs] Yeah, "Hey, I like your butt. Do you want to have dinner?"
Sarah: [Talking to Chris about Bonnie, Rochelle and Nancy] When I started hanging out with them I was almost relieved... I didn't have many close friends in San Francisco. It just felt really nice to belong.
[shakes her head]
Sarah: I disagreed with them once and they turned their backs on me. That's not friendship.
Lirio: Sarah, you have a tremendous light inside you... more so than any witch I've ever known. You must not be afraid.
Sarah: [Scared] I can't control it. I always end up hurting someone.
Lirio: [reaches down, touches the ring on Sarah's finger] Do you hear the voice of your mother?
Sarah: What about her?
Lirio: She's telling you to be strong. She was a witch too, of course. Didn't you know?
Sarah: [Shakes head] No.
Sarah: [Taps Nancy on the shoulder and steps out of a full length mirror] Oh, did I frighten you? I'm sorry.
Sarah: [about Mannon] He wanted me to give you a message: you're in deep shit. He says you've abused what he's given you and now you have to pay the price.
Nancy: [trying to hide her fear] Did he?
Sarah: [Unwavering] He did.
Bonnie: So does stuff like tonight happen to you a lot?
Sarah: No. Not like that.
Sarah: Other... stuff.
Rochelle: Where did you learn it?
Sarah: I don't know.
Bonnie: [Nods] A natural witch.
Sarah: [about her supposed "power"] I hate it; it's always getting screwed up. It's like... sometimes I'll... I'll want it to rain, and a pipe will burst in my bedroom, and it'll just get *flooded*
Nancy: [Bonnie and Rochelle laugh with glee, Nancy looks skeptical] Yeah right.
Sarah: No, really! Or I'll want it just to be quiet and I'll wish for it and wish for it, and I'll go deaf for three days straight.
[Bonnie and Rochelle stare in awe, Nancy looks begrudgingly convinced]
Sarah: [Teaching the game "light as a feather; stiff as a board] You take your index finger and your middle finger and put it under her like this
[Nancy, Sarah, and Bonnie all put their two fingers under Rochelle]
Sarah: [Continuing] Now you have to imagine that she's incredibly light; like she's made of air.
Bonnie: Is that her whole body or just her head?
Sarah: Guys, concentrate or it's not gonna work.
Nancy: [everyone is silent briefly, until Nancy laughs] I think I sprained my finger.
Rochelle: Shut up!
Sarah: [Trying not to smile] Guys, focus! Ready?
[They keep chanting until Rochelle is raised over two feet in the air]
Sarah: [opens her eyes] Holy shit.
[Bonnie and Nancy stare, speechless]
Rochelle: [Eyes closed] You guys, it's not working.
[opens her eyes and sees she's suspended in mid air]
Sarah: Shut up or you're gonna fall!
Rochelle: How do I get down? Whose got the instructions?
Sarah: Just concentrate.
[All are quiet until Bonnie's mom knocks on the door, entering the room just as Rochelle drops to the floor]
Rochelle: Ow! My butt!
Bonnie: I drink of my sisters, and I take into myself the power to be beautiful, outside as well as in.
Nancy: [Driving] Can you guys tell me what color that light is?
Sarah: It's red.
Nancy: [keeps driving, puts on a faux confused voice] Doesn't red mean stop?
Bonnie: [Playfully] Yeah, red means stop.
[Nancy continues driving, the red light turns green just as they reach it]
Sarah: [concerned] It's like what Lirio was talking about; throwing things out of balance. I know you guys think we're getting what we want now, but it's going to come back to us, threefold.
Bonnie: [Mockingly] Ohh!
Nancy: Are we actually having a theological conversation here. I mean it's fun, it's scary. I mean, who gives a shit?
[Bonnie and Rochelle giggle in the backseat]
Sarah: [Turning to them] What do you guys think?
Nancy: [dismissively] They don't think
Rochelle: [mock offended] Bitch!
[Bonnie continues to giggle]
Nancy: [Turns to Sarah] And stop trying to win them over, because it won't work.
Rochelle: [Slightly annoyed] I'm not trying to win them over, you're paranoid.
Nancy: [Angry] I'm paranoid? I'm not paranoid!
[Bonnie and Rochelle start repeating the word "paranoid", contiguously laughing historically]
Nancy: Will you guys shut up!
Nancy: You want in or do you want to leave this circle? Just tell me right now.
Sarah: [Raising her voice slightly] Why does it always have to be that way with you Nancy?
Nancy: [Very angry] Because that's the way it is!
Sarah: [Sarah's tone calms down, but remains firm] All I'm saying is, I think you should *think*.
Sarah: Add I don't want out.
[Takes on a warning tone]
Sarah: One of these times, the light's not gonna be green, Nancy.
Rochelle: [tentative] Sarah?
Bonnie: [also tentative, but slightly more confident] Hi Sarah, how are you?
Sarah: [Slightly scornful] Good, then again I can sleep at night so... how are *you*.
Rochelle: We... want to apologize. We feel really bad about...
Sarah: [Cuts her off] Trying to kill me?
Bonnie: [about running away when the snake man is hit by a car] The car hit him, and we made it happen!
Nancy: [diplomatic] Maybe, maybe not.
Bonnie: [Excited] Definitely! I thought to myself, "it's going to hit him".
Rochelle: [also excited] I thought it too!
Nancy: Well, I did too...
Bonnie: Sarah, did you think it?
Sarah: [Slightly apprehensive] Yeah.
Bonnie: Then that's it, Sarah's the forth! North, South, East, and West; we can make things happen! This is it, this is real.
Nancy: [Finally starting to share the excitement] Shit.
Sarah: [Performing a glamor spell] This is to feel/This is to be/Shape and form it/For all to see
[moves her hands to cover her eyes]
Sarah: By the power of three times three/As I will it/So shall it be!
[Uncovers her eyes in a ta-da move]
Rochelle: [Nancy, Bonnie and Rochelle look around, confused] What?
Sarah: My eyes are brown.
[they move in closer to look]
Bonnie: [unimpressed] Oh.
Sarah: [explaining] They're usually green.
Bonnie: [Still lackluster] Oh.
Nancy: [sounding unimpressed to the point of annoyance] You can do that with contacts.
Bonnie: [Reassuringly] Yeah, but it's good. I mean, it suits you.
Rochelle: [lackluster] Subtle.
Rochelle: but good!
Sarah: You want something bigger?
Nancy: [Now excited] I want bigger!
Nancy: [after finding out that Chris had tried to rape Sarah] I'm gonna go play.
Chris: Why didn't you answer the phone?
Sarah: It's three in the morning Chris.
Chris: Oh. Yeah, I guess that's a good reason... hey, you know, I was thinking we should move in together.
Sarah: I don't think I'm ready for that level of commitment.
Chris: Oh. Sarah, I can't stop thinking about you. I can't eat, I can't sleep. I think I love you. I've never loved anyone before... well, except for my mom and this little puppy I had when I was little...
Mitt: [In French class] You know this is L.A. We should be learning Mexican or something.
Chris: That would be Spanish, genius.
Sarah: You know I've never read anything about this stuff before. I mean, I don't follow it.
Lirio: Maybe you are a natural witch. Your power comes from within.
Chris: [seems to lose confidence] Nevermind.
Bonnie: [referring to Sara's spell] It's working!
Sarah: That or he's gone completely crazy.
Sarah: I need help to undo a love spell.
Lirio: [Matter-of-fact] When you open a flood gate, how can you undo it? You unleash something with a spell. There is no undoing; it must run it's course.
Nancy: You should let him suffer.
Lirio: It's not for you to judge suffering.
Chris: Yeah, you know sometimes it's like we're one person. Know what I mean?
Sarah: [confused] No, I'm not sure.
Chris: [laughs] I'm not sure either! That's so funny, I was just thinking "I have no idea what I'm talking about".
Lirio: You can defeat those who challenge you, but you must surrender yourself to the higher power.
Lirio: You must invoke the spirit.
Sarah: [protesting] But it made Nancy crazy.
Lirio: She takes it to a dark place.
Lirio: Don't be afraid.
Rochelle: [to Nancy about Sarah's love spell on Chris] It's working! check it out; her spell is working. Oh my god, Nancy, would you look?
[Nancy glances over, looking annoyed]
Bonnie: Some of these football dicks make their girlfriends come and watch them practice as if it's interesting.
