Damsels in Distress (2011)
Rose: What you are describing is a "playboy" or "operator" move.
Violet: Hello! Are you a new student?
Violet: We'd like to help you.
Violet: Our aspirations are pretty basic - take a guy who hasn't realized his full potential - or doesn't even have much...
Heather: Someone like Frank!
Violet: Yes. Then help them realize it or find more.
Violet: Do you know what's the major problem in contemporary social life? The tendency to always seek someone cooler than yourself.
Violet: [about their college] There's enough material here for a lifetime of social work.
Violet: We're also trying to make a difference in people's lives, and one way to do that is to stop them from killing themselves.
Depressed Debbie: [Angry] You think I'm going to kill myself and make you look bad?
Violet: I'm worried that you'll kill yourself and make yourself look bad.
Heather: [to Lily] Speaking of suicide prevention; do you have a boyfriend?
Violet: What would you say are the most effective means to fight depression?
Frank: No, beer's a downer! Cocktails! Hard liqueur and spirits is what really gives you a lift.
Rose: Frank's stupid, we knew. That he was a rat playboy operator, I hadn't realized.
Violet: Seven Oaks is the last of the Select Seven to go co-ed. Unanimous fear of male barbarism predominates. We're going to change that.
Violet: I don't really like the word "depressed". I prefer to say I'm in a tailspin.
Depressed Debbie: [about Violet] I suppose now she'll want the doughnuts too.
Priss: [Crying] He used to gaze at me with such love in his eyes. Know what I mean?
Violet: No. No, I've never actually seen that.
Violet: [about Priss' ex-boyfriend] Was Josh handsome?
Priss: [crying] Yes
Violet: That's a problem.
Violet: Have you ever heard the expression, prevention is nine tenths the cure? Well in the case of suicide, it's ten tenths the cure.
Violet: [to Jimbo, who she believes is depressed] Did you know that a good-smelling environment is crucial to our overall sense of well-being? Have you considered finding a better-smelling place to live?
Heather: [about seventh-grade Violet] But you were nice to her?
Rose: No, not really. The idea of being nice to weird and unpopular kids hadn't arrived yet.
Violet: I took the commuter train to Villa Franka and I checked into a cheap motel there.
Rose: The Motel Six?
Violet: No, the Motel 4. It's even less expensive.
Heather: Could Frank be dyslexic?
Rose: No, dyslexics are intelligent.
Lily: [about Charlie] I would hate to think what would happen if one of you guys got her claws into him.
Rose: That's outrageous! We're perfectly nice! We've met lots of pathetic guys, and nothing very bad happened.
Violet: [about Fred/Charlie] He's lying. I find that *very* attractive.
Fred Packenstacker: I wasn't just buying drinks for people; they were for cute girls. There was a perfectly rational, logical, easily-explainable agenda.
Violet: [Smiling slightly] So it *was* a playboy or operator move.
Fred Packenstacker: Of course. Transparently so.
Violet: I admire that. Drinks are expensive.
Lily: Oh my god! How crazy! He's completely insane. I almost dated him!
Heather: You can say that about a lot of guys.
Heather: I'm sure I've heard of strategic development. I think it's something pretty important.
Violet: Are you...
Violet: ... gay?
Fred Packenstacker: Not especially. But in another era it might of had some appeal.
Thor: [about a beanbag] What colour would you say that chair is?
Frank: That's a chair? I had no idea!
Violet: Poor Lily. Xavier just used her body, and not even the right side!
Mad Madge: [Violet is practicing her tap routine] What do you think you're doing?
Violet: I'm sorry, did I disturb you?
Mad Madge: Why are you wearing tap shoes? Are you out of your mind?
Violet: I think that's pretty clear...
Lily: There no logic to the algebra of love.
Fred Packenstacker: The algebra of love? Sounds like the title of some lame book.
Lily: It's a title but the book's not lame at all.
Fred Packenstacker: Love's algebra? I always thought it was more geometry.
Lily: Okay, the title's not good but the book is.
Fred Packenstacker: What's it say?
Lily: Well, that while we're all perverse in our preferences, there's actually this logic, or algebra to our perversity. And it has something to do with how the species has evolved
Fred Packenstacker: The survival of the species?
Lily: Yes, and whether it will continue to do so.
