Forever Fabulous (1999)
Corinne Daly: You've got to climb Mount Everest to reach the Valley of the Dolls. It's a brutal climb to reach that peak... especially in heels.
Loreli Daly: Texas and Miss Texas Gal were just not meant to be.
Loreli Daly: You know, I can understand why Miss Joan Crawford's children had a bizarre fear of wire clothes hangers, but I am stumped here.
Corinne Daly: Because she was born in Paris, Texas, Loreli chose French as her second language. Most people just thought she was from Canada.
Corinne Daly: Don't get me wrong, Loreli wasn't a bad mother. She just felt that giving birth to me had ruined her chances of ever looking good in a swimsuit again.
Loreli Daly: Don't you roll your eyes at me, missy! I swear, one of these mornings you're gonna wake up cross-eyed!
Loreli Daly: I'm gonna cry - but it'd ruin my mascara, so I'm gonna hug you instead.
Corinne Daly: Oh, you're just like Diane Sawyer! Oh, she's my favorite, cuz she was America's Junior Miss 1963, and now she gets paid millions of dollars just to read things! If that ain't inspiration for literacy, I don't know what is.
Loreli Daly: See now, I never would have gotten to be Miss Texas Gal 1969 if I didn't know how to twirl.
Tiffany Dawl: Okay people, are you gonna listen to my plan, or what?
Corinne Daly: Why? Why should I trust an arsonist like you?
Corinne Daly: She almost burned my head, mama.
Tiffany Dawl: Oh, really! I mean, are you gonna go on about that all night?
Corinne Daly: If I have to!
Tiffany Dawl: Wow! It's just like steppin' back into my childhood.
Corinne Daly: Yeah, yeah. Welcome to beauty queen world.
Loreli Daly: I haven't been back to Texas for years. People will talk.
Lyle Green: They - they will have forgotten.
Loreli Daly: No, no! People don't forget - not Texans!
Liz Guild: My mother hated pageants. She always said, "Now Liz, why do you want to surround yourself with vain women? Find another crowd to hang out with." Now I work in a prison.
Corinne Daly: Tiffany was about to find out that the only star of the Loreli Daly show was Loreli Daly.
Tiffany Dawl: Give me an honest answer, just be yourself. Beauty queens: feminist warriors or slaves to sequins?
Corinne Daly: I, um... I like sequins!
Corinne Daly: I love sequins! They're pretty and they're shiny - especially when the light hits 'em! They're sort of like a pretty armor, so I guess that's what a feminist warrior would wear!
Loreli Daly: You need to learn that beauty is a language of its own. It knows no barriers.
Tiffany Dawl: We've been on the road for five minutes and already somebody is dead!
Tiffany Dawl: I am a member of the press, I can't get involved in something like this!
Loreli Daly: Oh, please! Like you have morals!
Liz Guild: A man is dead! I know what they do to murderers in prison!
Loreli Daly: Are you judging me?
Corinne Daly: No. Cuz no matter what else I might think about you, Mama, you got way too much class for me to ever judge you.
Corinne Daly: This may not look like the face of a seductress, but I decided that if I was going to make it in Hollywood, I'd need to learn how to handle men.
