Some Kind of Wonderful (1987)
Watts: Because I'm driving you crazy and you're driving me crazy and I'd rather not see you and have you think good things about me than have you see me and hate me. 'Cause I can't afford to have you hate me, Keith. The only things I care about in this goddamn life are me and my drums and you.
Watts: [putting on Keith's diamond earrings] What do you think?
Keith: You look good wearing my future.
Duncan: I'm here to kick your ass, and you know it, and everybody here knows it, and above all, you deserve it. In fact, I think it's safe to say that this party is about to become a historical fact.
Keith Nelson: I'm sorry. I'm sorry I was so hard on you.
Watts: Me too.
Keith Nelson: You always hurt the ones you love.
Watts: So when are you going to beat the shit out of Amanda Jones?
Keith: Well, I like art, I work in a gas station, my best friend is a tomboy. These things don't fly too well in the American high school.
Keith Nelson: You can't tell a book by its cover.
Watts: No, but you can tell how much it's gonna cost you.
Keith Nelson: Wow, I never knew you were so deep.
Watts: You want shallow, call Amanda Jones.
[In the locker room]
Girl: I've just never seen a girl wearing boys underpants before.
Watts: Have you ever seen a girl with a drumstick shoved up her nose?
Girl: Oh, is that some kind of a threat?
Watts: It's some kind of a warning.
Laura Nelson: Any fool can get into college. Only a select few can say the same about Amanda Jones.
Laura Nelson: This is not true. It can't be. This has got to be the most hilarious rumor ever floated. Right?
Cindy Nelson: What are you talking about?
Laura Nelson: Last night, I hear everybody talking about how Keith has asked this girl out.
Cindy Nelson: No way.
Laura Nelson: Check it out. This girl is popular, she's beautiful... and obviously in the middle of some emotional shootout to consent to date the human tater tot. What did you do to her, Keith? Threaten her life?
Keith Nelson: I just asked her out.
Laura Nelson: Well, her boyfriend's a man, for Christ's sake.
Carol Nelson: Hey, hey, hey.
Laura Nelson: He's extensively easy on the eyes, he's a total buck, and you're - you're... Keith.
Carol Nelson: Is she nice?
Laura Nelson: Mother, the girl *is* sex.
Cindy Nelson: For God's sake, I'm eating!
Cliff Nelson: Glad you got time to think about the girls. Between the girls and your art kick, you have no time for anything important. You'll be dead and buried before you get off your butt and apply to a college.
Laura Nelson: Ease up, Dad. Any fool can get into a college. Only a precious few may say the same about Amanda Jones. Am I wrong?
Watts: Don't go mistaking paradise for a pair of long legs.
Duncan: We're gonna bring this party up to a nice respectable level. Don't worry, we're not gonna hurt anyone. We're not even gonna touch 'em. We're just gonna make 'em cry a little, just by lookin' at 'em.
Duncan: [walking into Hardy's party] It must be a hen house, because all I see is chicken shit.
Watts: It must be a drag to be a slave to the male sex drive.
Keith: It's not just sex.
Watts: Oh, you want to start a book club with her?
[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.
Amanda Jones: I'd rather be with someone for the wrong reasons then alone for the right.
Ray: So you gotta hang around for an hour?
Watts: If I feel like it.
Ray: You know how much damage we could do to each other in an hour?
Watts: It's kind of a revolting thought, actually.
Ray: Really? What's revolting mean?
Watts: Oh, God. Get your hands off me, man.
Ray: Does that mean you wanna come over?
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]
Ray: See, a lot of guys I know think that you're... confused. But I know it's just an act. Wanna know how I know?
Watts: Enlighten me.
Ray: Because you radiate this sexual vibe and I know that if you wanted, you could be a girl
Ray: like that.
Watts: Ray, this is 1987. Did you know a girl can be whatever she wants to be?
Ray: I know. My mom's a plumber.
Watts: That explains a lot about you, Ray.
Watts: You couldn't score her in a million years. A, you're too shy and closed up to even approach her, and B, she'd kill you!
Watts: Keith... you're losing it. And when it's lost, all you are is a loser.
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.
Watts: I think it's hip that you paint. I think it's hip that I drum. And it's perfect that we're friends.
Duncan: This is what my girlfriend would look like without skin.
Carparker: To win big you gotta do what?
Carparker: Lose big. What are we doing now?
All: We're losing big.
Duncan: I think it's safe to say that this party is about to become a historical fact.
Duncan: Alright man, let's just cut the bullshit, alright... please. I'm here to wipe the floor with your ass, and you know it, and everybody knows it, and you deserve it.
