Quotes 

  • Miss Collins : You too, Chris, and spit out that gum.

    Chris Hargenson : Where will I put it, Miss Collins?

    Miss Collins : You can choke on it for all I care just get it out of your mouth.

  • Miss Collins : [to the girls]  Now, my idea for this little trick you pulled was three days' suspension and refusal of your prom tickets.

    [the girls gasp] 

    Norma : [in disbelief]  What? God!

    Miss Collins : That'd get you where you live, wouldn't it? And you deserve it. I don't think any of you have any idea of just how nasty what you did really was. But the office has decided you're to have one week's detention.

    [the girls sigh with relief] 

    Miss Collins : Still, there's one little catch. It's to be my detention.

    [the girls are once again perturbed] 

    Miss Collins : That's fifty minutes every day starting today in the athletic field. Get the picture?

    Chris Hargenson : I'm not coming.

    Miss Collins : That's up to you, Chris. That's up to all of you. Punishment for skipping detention is three days' suspension and refusal of your prom tickets. Any other thoughts? Good. Now change up.

    [the girls proceed begrudgingly] 

    Chris Hargenson : Where are you going?

    Norma : Come on.

    Chris Hargenson : I'm not coming.

    Norma : You're really not gonna come? You're gonna miss out on the prom?

    Chris Hargenson : I'm not coming.

    Norma : Well, I'm not gonna miss the prom.

    Chris Hargenson : Fuck.

  • Miss Collins : Carrie? Carrie. Carrie, what's the matter? What happened?

    Carrie : Nothing.

    Miss Collins : Was it one of the girls? Did one of the girls do something to you?

    Carrie : No.

    Miss Collins : What is it, then? You can trust me, you know that? Would you tell me?

    Carrie : I got invited to the prom.

    Miss Collins : That's great! That's fantastic! So what are you down here moping around for?

    Carrie : Tommy Ross asked me.

    Miss Collins : That's even better. He's really cute, huh?

    Carrie : I know who he goes around with. They're just trying to trick me again. I know.

  • Miss Collins : The period's not up, Hargenson.

    Chris Hargenson : It is for me.

    Miss Collins : [to the other girls]  Keep running!

    [to Chris] 

    Miss Collins : Well, there are ten minutes left.

    Chris Hargenson : Stick 'em up your...

    [Miss Collins slaps her] 

    Chris Hargenson : You can't hit us! You'll get canned for this, you bitch!

    Miss Collins : One more word out of you, and I'm gonna knock you down! Do you understand me?

    Chris Hargenson : She can't get away with this if we all stick together! Norma? Helen? Sue!

    Sue Snell : Shut up, Chris. Just shut up.

    Chris Hargenson : This isn't over. This isn't over by a long shot!

    Miss Collins : You're out of the prom, Hargenson.

    [she turns to the other girls] 

    Miss Collins : Okay, the show's over. In place! Run! One, two! One, two! One, two!

  • Tommy Ross : What is the big deal?

    Miss Collins : Because it is a very big deal for Carrie White, and you know it!

    Tommy Ross : Well, she already said no, anyway.

    Sue Snell : Yeah, well, with a little effort, you can change that.

    Tommy Ross : Don't count your chickens.

    Miss Collins : Just don't try!

    Tommy Ross : Fine. I won't try.

    Sue Snell : Hey, wait a second! It's not fine! You can't order someone not to take someone to the prom.

    Miss Collins : Well, you know, I can make sure that you don't hurt Carrie White anymore.

    Sue Snell : We're not trying to hurt her, Miss Collins. We're trying to help her!

    Miss Collins : How? Hey, Tommy. Um, don't you think you're just gonna look a little ridiculous when you walk in the prom with Carrie White?

    Sue Snell : We don't care how we look. Do we?

    Tommy Ross : Well...

  • Miss Collins : Okay, line up.

    [Nobody listens] 

    Miss Collins : Line up!

    [the girls rise to their feet, still conversing with each other, moving slowly] 

    Miss Collins : Move it! On your feet right now, two lines!

    [They begin forming the two lines she demanded] 

    Miss Collins : Alice and Mary, eyes front! Katie!

    [the girls all form two perfect lines, quiet themselves and look to Miss Collins, except for Chris Hargenson] 

    Miss Collins : You too, Chris!

    [Chris turns around from her conversation, chewing on gum] 

    Miss Collins : And spit out that gum!

    Chris Hargenson : [Sarcastically]  Where'll I put, Miss Collins?

    Miss Collins : You could choke on it for all I care, just get it out of your mouth!

    [Chris, slightly angry, tears off a piece of loose leaf paper and uses it to take the gum out of her mouth; Miss Collins walks down the line to Norma standing there with a smirk upon her face] 

    Miss Collins : Wipe that smirk off your face, Norma.

    [Norma complies with some fear of Miss Collins] 

    Miss Collins : Okay. Now, I want you all to know that you did a really shitty thing yesterday, a really shitty thing.

    [Some laughter from Helen] 

    Miss Collins : Did any of ever stop to think that Carrie White has feelings? Do any of you ever stop to think? No, I guess you're too busy thinking about your dates and the Prom. I guess you can take your pick, Chris. Who's the lucky guy?

    Chris Hargenson : Billy Nolan.

    Miss Collins : Who?

    Chris Hargenson : [With some annoyance]  Billy Nolan.

    Miss Collins : [a little more testy]  I'm sorry, can't hear you, could you speak up?

    Chris Hargenson : [With anger]  Billy Nolan!

    Miss Collins : Well, isn't he the lucky one? What about you, Sue? Who's taking you?

    Sue Snell : [With tears in her eyes from feeling the guilt]  Tommy Ross.

    Miss Collins : Right. Now my idea for this little trick you pulled was 3 days suspension and refusal of your Prom tickets.

    Helen : [All the girls start squirming uncomfortably]  Oh!

    Norma : What?

    [Whispered] 

    Norma : God!

    Miss Collins : That'd get you where live, wouldn't it? And you deserve it. I don't think any of you have any idea of just how nasty what you did really was. But the office has decided you're to have one week's detention.

    [the girls all relax, feeling relieved] 

    Miss Collins : Still, there's one little catch: It's to be my detention.

    [the girls groan] 

    Miss Collins : It's 50 minutes, everyday, starting today on the athletic field. Get the picture?

    Chris Hargenson : I'm not coming.

    Miss Collins : That's up to you, Chris. That's up to all of you. Punishment for skipping detention is 3 days suspension and refusal of your Prom tickets.

    [More groaning from the girls] 

    Miss Collins : Any other thoughts?

    [Silence from the girls] 

    Miss Collins : Good. Now change up.

    [She leaves. with the other girls going to change up for gym class] 

    Chris Hargenson : [Annoyed]  Where you going?

    [Norma tries to get Chris to see reason] 

    Chris Hargenson : I'm not coming!

    Norma : You're really not gonna come? You're gonna miss out on the Prom?

    Chris Hargenson : I'm NOT coming!

    Norma : Well, you're gonna miss the Prom.

    [She walks away] 

    Chris Hargenson : [Whispered]  Fuck.
