Pretty in Pink
Movie Quote Quiz

Duckie: May I admire you again today?

Duckie: This is a really volcanic ensemble you're wearing, it's really marvelous.

Andie: You know, it's so insane that someone you've never met, never talked to can be your enemy.

Steff: Why don't you go to take a shower, you look like shit.

Andie: You know you're talking like that just because I'm going out with Blane.
Duckie: His name is Blane? Oh! That's a major appliance, that's not a name.

Duckie: Well, that's very nice. I'm glad. Well here's... here's the point, Andie. I'm not particularly concerned with whether or not you like me, because I live to like you and... and I can't like you anymore. So... so when you're feeling real low and... and dirty, and your heart is splattered all over hell, don't look to me to pump you back up 'cause... 'cause... 'cause maybe for the first time in your life I won't be there.
Andie: I can't believe you're saying this.

Steff: Money really means nothing to me. Do you think I'd treat my parents' house this way if it did?

Andie: So what do you want to drink?
Duckie: Oh you know, beer, scotch, juice box... whatever.

Andie: I just want them to know that they didn't break me.

Iona: Andie, hon. Listen, it's after 7:00. Don't waste good lip gloss.

Duckie: You know what an older women does for me?
Iona: Changes your diapers?
Duckie: Touché.

Andie: If somebody doesn't believe in me, I can't believe in them.

Andie: What are you doing?
Duckie: I had to use the powder room, so I figured I'd come in the back.
Andie: I'm sure there are bathrooms all over the place.
Duckie: I'm not nine, Andie, I know that.

Andie: Well, not nothing. I mean, I kissed him.
Iona: Anywhere interesting?

Duckie: This is an incredibly romantic moment, and you're ruining it for me.

Duckie: I'm off like a dirty shirt.

Blane: You couldn't buy her, though, that's what's killing you, isn't it? Stef? That's it, Stef. She thinks you're shit. And deep down, you know she's right.

Blane: You said you couldn't be with someone who didn't believe in you. Well I believed in you. I just didn't believe in me. I love you... always.

Continuity mistake: At the end, at the prom, Andrew McCarthy's hair is clearly much shorter (and combed really weird!) than in the rest of the movie. Sure you could argue, "maybe he got a haircut for the prom". But a couple of scenes earlier, it shows everyone getting ready for the prom, including him, and his hair is the same as it is all through the movie, up until the prom scene. [One contributor explains: Andrew McCarthy and Duckie are both wearing wigs. I know this because my father made the wigs. The original ending had Molly Ringwald ending up with Duckie. They wanted to change the ending so that she would end up with McCarthy. In the meantime, he had gotten a crew-cut to appear in a play or movie about soldiers. I don't know what was up w/ Duckie's hair, but the last scene has him in a wig,too].
