Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997) Poster

Mira Sorvino: Romy White



  • Christie : So, Mi-chelle! What are you up to?

    Michele : Oh, okay. Um, I invented Post-Its.

    Christie : No offense, Michele, but how in the world did *you* think of Post-Its?

    Michele : Uh...

    [looks across the room at Romy talking to Billy Christianson] 

    Romy : And I thought of them completely by myself. I mean, all Michele did was say: "What about making them yellow?"

    Michele : [turns to the A Group]  Actually I invented a special kind of glue.

    Christie : Oh really? Well then I'm sure you wouldn't mind giving us a detailed account of exactly how you concocted this miracle glue, would you?

    Michele : No. Um, well, ordinarily when you make glue first you need to thermoset your resin and then after it cools you have to mix in an epoxide, which is really just a fancy-schmancy name for any simple oxygenated adhesive, right? And then I thought maybe, just maybe, you could raise the viscosity by adding a complex glucose derivative during the emulsification process and it turns out I was right.

  • Romy : Swear to God, sometimes I wish I was a lesbian.

    Michele : Do you want to try to have sex sometime just to see if we are?

    Romy : What? Yeah, right, Michelle. Just the idea of having sex with another woman creeps me out. But if we're not married by the time we're 30, ask me again.

    Michele : Okay.

  • Michele : Oh my God, you did it!

    Romy : Yeah, I did.

    Michele : What did you have to do?

    Romy : I had to give everyone in the service department hand jobs.

    Michele : Well, while you were doing that, I made us a tape of all the nostalgic songs from high school to get us in the mood.

    Romy : Michele?

    Michele : What?

    Romy : Do you really think I would do that? For a car? Just get in.

    Michele : O.K.

  • Cheryl : I don't believe it!

    Christie : What?

    Cheryl : THAT!

    Kelly : They're back!

    Christie : Nice outfits. Post-it's must be really lucrative!

    Michele : Romy, are you sure you wanna do this?

    Romy : Oh yeah, Michele. I am SO sure!

    [they approach Christie, Cheryl, & Kelly] 

    Romy : What the hell is your problem, Christie? Why the hell are you always such a nasty bitch? I mean, okay, so Michele and I did make up some stupid lie! We only did it because we wanted you to treat us like human beings. But you know what I realized? I don't care if you like us, 'cause we don't like you. You're a bad person with an ugly heart, and we don't give a flying fuck what you think!

    [Cheryl and Kelly laugh sarcastically] 

    Romy : Come on Michele.

    Michele : Okay, and... YEAH!

    Christie : Unbelievable! They're as deluded about their lives as they are about those HIDEOUS clothes

    Lisa Luder : Actually Christie. They have nice lines. A fun, frisky use of color. All and all, I'd have to say they're really... NOT BAD!

    Christie : Well, WE still think they're ridiculous. Don't we girls?

    Lisa Luder : Why don't you just let them think for themselves for once?

    Christie : You're just jealous. Because unlike a certain ball-busting dried up career woman, I might mention, we're all HAPPILY MARRIED!

    Lisa Luder : That's right, Christie. Keep telling yourself that.

  • Michele : Remember the prom? You got so thin by then.

    Romy : Oh, I know. I was so lucky getting mono. That was like the best diet ever.

  • Romy : Heather, um, has anyone ever told you that smoking can kill you?

    Heather : No. No one. Thank you.

  • Michele : Did you lose weight?

    Romy : Actually, I have been trying this new fat free diet I invented. All I've had to eat for the past six days are gummy bears, jelly beans, and candy corns.

    Michele : God, I wish I had your discipline.

  • Billy Christiansen : Wanna get a room?

    Romy : But you're married!

    Billy Christiansen : To Christie!

    Romy : Yeah, but you have children, and you're a successful real estate developer.

    Billy Christiansen : I do dry wall for her old man's construction company, and you know this new kid, don't even know if he's mine! So, how about that room?

    Romy : Okay. Why don't you get that room? Why don't you wash your face and take off all your clothes? And, I'll be there in five minutes.

    Billy Christiansen : All right! Your fantasy is going to come true tonight. See you later!

    Michele : Bye.

    Romy : Now he's going to see what it feels like to wait.

    Michele : Such a good one.

  • Romy : [mocking the film "Pretty Woman"]  Aw, look, poor thing - they won't let her shop. Yeah - like those salesgirls in Beverly Hills aren't bigger whores than she is.

  • Romy : Hey, um, great suit. Is that an Armani?

    Suit Salesman : Yes. Yes, it is.

    Romy : I thought so. So, what do you do?

    Suit Salesman : I'm a suit salesman.

    Romy : Would you excuse me? I cut my foot before and my shoe is filling up with blood.

  • [looking at yearbook pictures] 

    Romy : Oh my God! Remember what a big controversy it was for us to have our picture taken together?

    Michele : Yeah, because Danny Weller like, lodged that complaint. Because alphabetically he was supposed to be between us.

    Romy : So we said: "OK Danny. If you want to be between us, come to Michele's house on Friday night and we'll be waiting."

    Michele : And then he showed up, and we were like: "Danny, it was a joke!"

    Romy : And then we turned the sprinklers on him!

    [both laugh hysterically] 

    Michele : Oh my God!

    [abruptly stops laughing] 

    Michele : Didn't he die?

    Romy : I think so.

  • Heather : Do you live with Michele Weinberger?

    Romy : Yeah.

    Heather : I just figured she'd be married to Sandy by now.

    Romy : Sandy Frink?

    Heather : Yes, Sandy Frink! He could barely contain his erection every time she walked by! Why do you think he always carried around that huge notebook?

    Romy : The Frink-a-zoid and Michele... I'm sure! Besides, didn't *you* have a thing for Sandy in high school?

    Heather : I did not have a THING! I did not have a thing, I did NOT have a THING! I was VERY much in love with him! VERY much in love and there's a difference!

    [to customer behind her] 

    Heather : There's a difference!

    [to Romy] 

    Heather : There's a difference! I have to go now!

  • Michele , Romy : [singing along to radio]  Cut loose! Footloose! Kick off your sunday shoes!

    [they both trail off and look at each other] 

    Romy : I have no idea what the rest of the lyrics are...

  • Michele : I'm the Mary, and you're the Rhoda.

    Romy : YOU'RE the Rhoda, you're the Jewish one.

  • Ramon : You have to say something nice about my penis!

    Romy : Oh, Ramon! Your penis is so powerful! I'm coming! Okay, thanks, get off me now.

  • Michele : Sandy Frink has a helicopter?

    Romy : Yeah, apparently he's worth millions. He invented some kind of rubber.

    Michele : Like for condoms?

  • Romy : Michelle and I have this high school reunion to go to, and we need to show up in a really cool car.

    Ramon : Yeah?

    Romy : Todd told me he gave you a really great deal on a convertible and that you were fixing it up.

    Ramon : Yeah?

    Romy : So... can I borrow your car?

    Ramon : Well, if I loan you my car, what do I get?

    Romy : Uh... what do you want?

    Ramon : [looks her up and down]  Oh, Romy... you know what I want.

    Romy : Forget it! I'm not going to have sex with you just to borrow your stupid car!

    Ramon : I gotta get something!

    Romy : OK... close the blinds, and we'll work something out.

  • Michele : [On video phone in the future in Michelle's dream]  Billy, honey. Tell your mommy that Michelle Wienberger is on the phone.

    Romy : No. Not Until you admit that I'm the Mary, and you're the Rhoda.

    Michele : I'm the Mary! You're a pasty hag on your death bed!

  • Romy : All I ever wanted was for people to think that we were better than we were in high school. And now we're just a stupid joke, just like we always were.

    Michele : Romy, can I tell you the truth? I never knew that we weren't that great in high school. I mean, we always had so much fun together... I thought high school was a blast! And until you told me that our lives weren't good enough, I thought everything *since* high school was a blast. I think we should go back out there as ourselves, and just have fun like we always do. The hell with everyone else!

    Romy : I don't think I can.

    Michele : Well, do you think you can stop being such a baby? God! I feel like I've been, like, chasing you all over this reunion. We have come all this way, now we are going to enjoy ourselves whether you like it or not!

    Romy : God, Michele... I've never seen this side of your personality before. You're so bossy and domineering. I like it!

    Michele : [Smiling]  Me too!

  • Christie : Thanks a lot Romy.

    Romy : What?

    Christie : Thanks for stealing my boyfriend!

    Romy : What are you talking about?

    Christie : Billy just broke up with me. Apparently he's had a crush on you since Mr. Roswell's class and now that he knows that you like him, he doesn't want to pretend with me anymore. My life was perfect and you ruined it! Oh!

    Romy : I swear to God Christy, I didn't even think he'd dance with me!

    Michele : Wow, she is really P.O.'d. This is so cool!

    Romy : I know. It's like I had this dream where Billy was like in love with me, and he was in a wheelchair, but still, it's like it's coming true!

  • Romy : Have a "Romy and Michele" day!

  • Romy : Do you have some sort of business woman special?

    Truck Stop Waitress : Come again?

    Romy : Well, were business women.

    Michele : From LA.

    Romy : And you know how some places have like a lunch special?

    Michele : For business women...

    Truck Stop Waitress : We don't have anything like that.

    Romy : Ok we'll take 2 burgers, fries, and medium cokes cause were in a hurry.

    Michele : We're due in Tucson later... some business thing, you know.

    Truck Stop Waitress : What kind of business you all in?

    [Romy and Michele give a long pause] 

  • Romy : [reading the customer paperwork]  Heather? Heather Mooney? From Sagebrush High in Tuscon?

    Heather : [disinterested yet quietly anxious]  Yeah?

    Romy : [excitedly]  It's Romy! Romy White!

    Heather : [disinterestedly taking a drag from her cigarette]  You're shittin' me.

    Romy : No! This is so weird - I didn't know you were living in L.A.

    Heather : Well, now that you know, will we be getting together a lot?

  • Romy : You have absolutely no proof that you're cuter.

    Michele : Oh, proof. You want proof? Ok, fine. Who lost their virginity first?

    Romy : Oh, big wow, with your cousin Barry. I wouldn't brag about it.

  • Romy : Well, anyways, are you going?

    Heather : [referring to her cigarette]  I'd rather put this out in my ass!

  • Romy : I've been killing myself for eight days and I gained a pound.

    Michele : That's impossible. Did you deduct sixteen pounds for your shoes?

  • Romy : Isn't it weird when you're not friends with your friends anymore? I mean, Michele and I just fell out of touch about two hours ago.

  • Romy : The reunion is less than two weeks away. I just can't believe that you turned down a job!

    Michele : Well, I thought the whole point of going to the reunion was to impress people. I mean, how am I gonna impress ANYBODY by selling ban-lon smocks at Bargain Mart?

  • [looking at yearbook pictures] 

    Romy : Well we definitely weren't in the A group, but you know, we weren't really in the B group either.

    Michele : Oh my god! We weren't in the C group were we?

    Romy : Oh god no, that was, like, all the losers and honor students, like Sandy Frink and Heather Mooney.

    Michele : So, Romy, what group WERE we in?

    Romy : Well, we weren't really in a group, we were more like loners. Oh look! There we are!

    Michele : Yeah, and alone.

  • Mr. Lish : [addressing Romy & Michele]  Just a reminder, girls - you have DETENTION after school today.

    Michele : Yeah, we're really looking forward to it!

    [Mr. Lish looks at them, stunned, then quickly withdraws] 

    Romy : Can you believe he just got married? Like how desperate is she?

  • Romy : Hey, if anyone needs to make a call, I've got a phone!

    [the A-Group look embarrassed and confused] 

  • Romy : Michele? Now that I'm looking at this, our lives don't seem as impressive as I thought.

    Michele : They don't?

    Romy : Well, do you think it's impressive that we're still single, and we've been living together for ten years, and I'm a cashier and you're unemployed?

    Michele : Not super-impressive.

    Romy : Then, what's the point of going if we're not going to impress people?

  • Billy Christiansen : Chubbo?

    Romy : The name is Romy.

  • [at an AA meeting looking for a boyfriend] 

    Romy : Hi, my name's Romy and I'm an alcoholic.

    AA members : Hi Romy.

    Romy : Hey.

  • Romy : Yeah, Ramon. That'll happen.
