Quotes

Olive Penderghast: Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life.

Rosemary: We're a family of late bloomers - I didn't until I was 14, and nor did Olive.

Chip: Why does that matter - I'm adopted!

Dill: [Freaking out] What? Oh my God! Who told you? Guys, we were going to do this at the right time!

Brandon: Is there an Olive here?

Rosemary: There's a whole jar of them in the fridge!

Olive Penderghast: [to Brandon as she takes off her panties] Relax. Jesus. What is with you gays? Are you really that repulsed by lady parts? What do you think I have down there? A gnome?

Principal Gibbons: This is public school. If I can keep the girls off the pole and the boys off the pipe, I get a bonus.

Olive Penderghast: Ironically, we were studying "The Scarlet Letter", but isn't that always the way? The books you read in class always seems to have a strong connection with whatever angsty adolescent drama is being recounted. I consider this. Except for "Huckleberry Finn", 'cause I don't know any teenage boys who have ever run away with a big, hulking black guy.

Mr. Griffith: I don't know what your generation's fascination is with documenting your every thought... but I can assure you, they're not all diamonds. "Roman is having an OK day, and bought a Coke Zero at the gas station. Raise the roof." Who gives a rat's ass?

Olive Penderghast: [Mocks interest] He got a Coke Zero AGAIN. Ah, that Roman. Incorrigible.

Nina: [spiteful] Perhaps you should embroider a red A on your wardrobe, you abominable tramp.

Olive Penderghast: Perhaps you should get a wardrobe, you abominable twat.

Olive Penderghast: I might even lose my virginity to him. I don't know when it will happen. You know, maybe in five minutes, or tonight, or six months from now, or maybe on the night of our wedding. But the really amazing thing is, it is nobody's goddamn business.

Rosemary: Olive! There's a young man here to see you

[starts speaking in a Southern accent]

Rosemary: He said something about asking for your hand in marriage!

Olive Penderghast: [Also speaking in a Southern accent] Oh, happy day, Mama! Oh, I thought I was gonna have to spend my dowry on booze and pills to numb the loneliness. A gentleman caller, hurray!

[from trailer]

Marianne: There's a higher power that will judge you for your indecency.

Olive Penderghast: Tom Cruise?

Olive Penderghast: [from trailer] A is for Awesome.

Olive Penderghast: What's your problem?

Rhiannon: You really want to know what my problem is?

Olive Penderghast: No, actually, that was a rhetorical question. I don't want to know anything from you.

Rhiannon: We are not friends anymore.

Olive Penderghast: Oh.

Rhiannon: We are officially over!

Olive Penderghast: OH RATS!

Rhiannon: Hey, I want my Juicy sweatshirt back! It's way too loose around your chest anyway!

Olive Penderghast: Ohhhhh, burn!

Olive Penderghast: Do you have a religion section?

Bookstore guy: It's right over there. Can I help you with something?

Olive Penderghast: The Bible.

Bookstore guy: That's in bestsellers, right next to Twilight.

Olive Penderghast: Don't you think it's a little strange that your boyfriend is 22 years old and still in high school?

Marianne: Not that it's any of your busniess, trollop, but he is here by choice.

Olive Penderghast: So it's his choice that he's a fourth year senior who can't pass any test he takes?

Marianne: No, silly,

[points up]

Marianne: His. His, with a capital H. If God wanted him to graduate, then God would have given him the right answers.

Olive Penderghast: [laughs] I'm sorry, but you gotta be shittin' me, woman.

Dill: The family member of the week gets to pick the movie.

Olive Penderghast: You get family member of the week every week.

Rosemary: And there's a reason for that.

Olive Penderghast: Yeah, you pick family member of the week!

Rosemary: Are you accusing me of nepotism?

Rhiannon: Please tell me the rumors are true!

Olive Penderghast: Yes. Yes, I am a big fat slut.

Rhiannon: No, no! Not that one. The one where you got suspended for calling Nina Howell a dick and punched her in the left tit.

Olive Penderghast: I worry about the way information circulates at this school.

Olive Penderghast: [Going to a Church] I was just wondering if there's a minster around?

[Women looks at her]

Olive Penderghast: Is it not a minister?

Olive Penderghast: [Tries again] a Reverend?

Olive Penderghast: A Wizard?

Rhiannon: You're being pretty cavalier about this. Aren't you supposed to be eternally in love with him and shit?

Olive Penderghast: Yes... I believe so, if I was the Gossip Girl in Sweet Valley of the Traveling Pants.

Woodchuck Todd: Screw all these people, Olive!

Olive Penderghast: Haven't you heard? I already did.

Marianne: I just hope for your sake you had the good sense to use protection.

Olive Penderghast: Why? Your parents didn't.

Olive Penderghast: I could have chlamydia. I have been... whoring around a lot.

Mrs. Griffith: No, honey. No, you haven't. Because a real whore can't even admit it to herself, let alone another person.

Dill: [to his adopted son] Where are you from originally?

[from trailer]

Rosemary: I had a similar situation when I was your age. I had a horrible reputation.

Olive Penderghast: Why?

Rosemary: Because I slept with a whole bunch of people. Mostly guys.

Olive Penderghast: Mom!

Mrs. Griffith: I'm the guidance counselor. I should know all the students, especially the ones that dress like prostitutes.

Rosemary: Not to mention how you have been dressing these past few days. No judgment, but you kind of look like a stripper.

Olive Penderghast: Mom!

Dill: [to Olive] A high-end stripper, for governors or athletes.

Woodchuck Todd: [in Woodchuck costume carrying head] Hey Olive.

Olive Penderghast: Oh my God! The illusion is shattered! This is exactly why they put you in the gas chamber if you take your head off at Disney World.

Woodchuck Todd: Actually I think they just, you know, they fire you. You're thinking of Disneyland. Disney World is much more liberal.

Olive Penderghast: Oh yeah! I always forget Disney World went blue in the last election.

Eighth Grade Olive: So, I think this is the part where you're supposed to stick your tongue in my mouth. It's just what I've heard.

Eighth Grade Kid: Just give me a second, okay?

Eighth Grade Olive: According to my watch, you have 382 of them.

Eighth Grade Kid: How do you do that?

Eighth Grade Olive: What?

Eighth Grade Kid: Add so fast. And you also talk like a grown up.

Eighth Grade Olive: Don't worry. I'm not nearly as smart as I think I am.

Olive Penderghast: [V.O] So the next day I had detention. Which, thanks to recent budget cuts meant *cleaning*. I was looking forward to putting all this behind me - I had done the crime, I was going to do the time. And that would be that

Brandon: Aren't there, like, child labor laws against this?

Olive Penderghast: Not in high school. The principal is like a captain of a ship in international waters. He can even marry people!

[Brandon nods]

Olive Penderghast: We haven't talked in a while - how've you been, Brandon?

Brandon: [sarcastic] Fabulous! Crushing it! Everything according to plan.

[yelling]

Brandon: I wanna be in detention!

Olive Penderghast: Ya, why are you here? Judging from the amount of blood I saw gushing from your nose I thought you were the bull-*ied*

Brandon: You'd think, but Principal Gibbons is a homophobe, which is why I called him a fascist.

Olive Penderghast: So the rumors are true.

Brandon: [defensive] I don't know what you're talking about.

Olive Penderghast: I meant about Gibbons' being a fascist.

Preferably to the Gap, but I'd also take Amazon.com, or Office Max. Actually, make it Office Max - I have my eye on a label maker. We did not have sex. I let you fondle my chest, and it was a glorious moment for you. Unmatched by anything you have heretofore experienced... including cake.

Rosemary: He seems like a nice kid. He seemed a little incredibly gay...

Olive Penderghast: Dyed in the wool homosexual, that boy is.

Rosemary: I just want you to know your father and I are totally supportive. We love you no matter what the sexual orientation of your opposite sex sex partner...

Olive Penderghast: We are not dating, Mom.

Rosemary: ...and don't worry about not making us grandparents. Although we were kind of hoping you'd get "knocked up" so we'd have a second shot at raising kids, really do it right this time.

Olive Penderghast: Bye now...

Rosemary: You know, I dated a homosexual once. For a long time, actually... a "long" time...

Olive Penderghast: Dear God, dear Lord, tell me you didn't marry and have children with him!

Rosemary: [Giggles] No.

Paying me to lie for you, and calling me every name in the book. And you know what? It was just like Hester in the Scarlet Letter. Except that's the one thing movies don't tell you: how shitty it feels to be an outcast. Warranted or not.

It's not like I've actually been doing the things that people are saying I'm doing, but - then again - I'm not denying them, so I've just been wondering: is that wrong? It was just that a lot of people had been asking me to do things and I thought it was okay, because it wasn't real. It was make-believe and no one was getting hurt. But a lot of people hate me now.

Brandon: [while pretending to have sex with Olive and she's hitting him with a book] You don't have to be so aggressive about it.

Olive Penderghast: What, you don't like that?

[yells so the eavesdroppers outside the door will hear]

Olive Penderghast: You don't like that!

Brandon: [whispers to Olive] NO, I don't like that!

Rhiannon: [about Olive's pretend tryst with Brandon] I had to hear from *Jackie Rudedsky*. Do you know how embarrassing it is; finding out you slept with some gay dude from *Jackie Rudedsky*?

Olive Penderghast: [Not caring] That must have been pretty embarrassing.

Olive Penderghast: [V.O, about Maryanne's group] I didn't know *what* they were so upset about; I put an "A" on my wardrobe just like they asked. Maybe it was because I was wearing clothes that were two sizes too small.

Mrs. Griffith: [During an appointment with Olive] Don't tell anyone I'm doing this - please...

[opens a drawer and takes out a handful of condoms, then hands them to Olive]

Mrs. Griffith: Here you go.

Olive Penderghast: I really don't need those.

Mrs. Griffith: Oh, you *really* do.

[puts the condoms in Olive's hand]

Mrs. Griffith: Here you go. I just don't want this *thing* you're going through to define your life. Olive, do what you got to do, let your freak flag fly. Just make sure you have an exit strategy.

Olive Penderghast: [Olive looks at the condoms] Listen, Mrs. Griffins, I really don't need these.

Mrs. Griffith: You know, the pill is not 100% effective. Ask some of your friend's parents.

Olive Penderghast: [V.O, continuing onto Webcam] So it was time to put an end to this once and for all by telling my side of the story. And that's why I decided to do this webcast. So here we go. Part Five:

Olive Penderghast: Not with a fizzle, but with a bang.

[from trailer]

Brandon: Do you wanna go out with me?

Olive Penderghast: Brandon, just a couple of hours ago you told me you were Kinsey 6 gay.

Brandon: You said I should pretend to be straight.

Olive Penderghast: I didn't mean with me!

Brandon: I am tormented every day at school. Just one good, imaginary fling.

Olive Penderghast: I think we should just put this conversation to bed.

Rhiannon: Fine. Don't come camping with us, just know I hate you, bitch. Go get your chocolate milk.

Olive Penderghast: So they got Rhiannon. Never underestimate the power of extremists like Marianne. They sense any weaknesses, they pounce like jungle cats. And the whack pack just gets bigger and bigger. But at least they have a pack. I was used to being by myself, but I have never felt more alone.

Rhiannon: George is not a sexy name. George is like what you name your teddy bear, not the name you wanna scream out during climax.

Mr. Griffith: I hope by "climax" you weren't talking about...

Olive Penderghast: The stable and self-perpetuating end-stage in the evolution of a plant community. Like "by George, that tree has reached the final stage of ecological succession".

Rhiannon: And it only took 20 seconds.

Olive Penderghast: [on webcam] If you're still with me - and I'm hoping most of you are - this bring us to part 4.

Olive Penderghast: [after performing her song at the pep rally] This was just a free preview - for the main event log onto "www.freeolive.com" tonight at six p.m. And I know it interferes with the basketball game; but come on, would you rather be here cheering on the Woodchucks or watch me do one?
