Some Kind of Wonderful (1987) Poster

Lea Thompson: Amanda Jones



  • Amanda Jones : I'd rather be with someone for the wrong reasons then alone for the right.

  • [referring to Watts driving them on their date] 

    Amanda Jones : So, do you always bring an extra girl when you go out?

    Keith : Well, I like to cover my bets.

    Amanda Jones : That's very cute. I'll have to remember that.

  • Hardy Jenns : Look, I'm perfectly willing to forget this. Okay? I see no reason in carrying this on any longer. It was a joke. It's gone too far. It's over. Okay?

    Keith Nelson : You want the truth? You want the plain truth? You're over.

    [Keith turns to leave] 

    Amanda Jones : Are you just gonna leave?

    Keith Nelson : There isn't anything I could do to him that he hasn't already done to himself.

    Amanda Jones : I wish I could live with that.

    [Amanda walks up to Hardy and slaps him across the face. She then slaps him again] 

  • Amanda Jones : I hate feeling ashamed. I hate where I'm from. I hate watching my friends get everything their hearts desire. I gave into that hatred and I turned on what I believed in. I didn't have to. You didn't.

  • Amanda Jones : Look, uh, how this happened is as much of a MYSTERY to me as it is to you. I'm not any more thrilled about it than you are. So, why don't you just STOP giving me attitude, PLEASE?

    Keith : I'm giving YOU attitude?

    Amanda Jones : Yeah. Like on Friday, pulling that He-Man power play, about how I have to ask my friends for permission. I didn't appreciate it. I don't like being treated like that.

    Keith : Well, it's TRUE, isn't it?

    Amanda Jones : At least I have friends.

    Keith : Are you sure?

  • Amanda Jones : - You think I used you?

    Keith : - Didn't you?

    Amanda Jones : - I don't know... in a way.

    Keith : - In a way? Amanda, there's only one you use someone - you either do or you don't!

    Amanda Jones : - And you didn't use me? God, you hypocrite! What's hanging in that museum, huh? My soul? No, it's my face. You're using me to pay back every guy with more money and more power than you. Paint it in any colour you want. It's still you using me.
