Movie Quote Quiz

Courtney: Food's cool and all. You need it to live, but the mere act of eating invokes thoughts of digestion, flatulation, defecation. Even shall we say, complexion defection.

Courtney: I killed Liz. I killed the teen dream. Deal with it.

Courtney: I have this gift. I can smell a lie.

Courtney: What a fucking tearjerker. Look, Marce, it's like "Terms of Endearment Part III" only this time, the boyfriend's gay.
Marcie: Yeah, and the rest of the cast sucks.

Courtney: I taught you to disrespect us?
Fern: You taught me to rule.
Courtney: That's right! Rule, bitch! But don't forget who made you.

Courtney: You knew Liz Purr right?
Fern: I... I know of her.
Courtney: Knew of her. Past tense. She's dead, Fern. She died, but we've got a bit of a problem because you know we did it. You heard us. That gives you a little something, Fern and it's called power. The power to tell and you're the kind of girl that tells. A tattle-tale.
Marcie: A rat.

Vylette: This is high school, Detective Cruz. What is a friend anyway?
Detective Vera Cruz: A friend is someone who tells the truth no matter what. A true friend never lies.

Marcie: AHH! She is gonna die! This is so much better than what we did last year.
Courtney: I wish I had friends that would do this for me.
Julie: Yeah, right! You'd have us killed.
Courtney: Brutally maimed, my dear.

Courtney: I don't believe we've met, what with the cruel politics of high school and all.

Marcie: Trends change. People change. It's all about details. Pay attention to details. Look at my nails. In junior high, I wore only pink. Now it makes me puke. So I change. See? It's called Demented. Seriously, the color's called Demented.
Courtney: Mine? Decayed. Like Julie. Our friendship with her is decayed. Rot. Julie is over. Done, null and void. In two weeks, no-one will know her including you. From now on, you don't know her. Never knew her. She's like Fern Mayo. A bad dream. Get it?

Julie: It's over Courtney.
Courtney: I am petrified.

Dane: Don't go.
Courtney: Don't come.

Courtney: First, we're gonna stuff her pretty face with pancakes, then tie her to the flagpole in her bra and undies and watch the humiliation begin.
Marcie: She is gonna die.

Courtney: We just killed our best friend! Do you realise what this means?
Marcie: You're a shoo-in for prom queen?

Courtney: Ok, reality check. Liz is in the trunk of this car and she is dead. That is a sad, fucked up thing, but you are going to walk into that school and strut your shit down the hallway like everything is peachy fucking keen.

Continuity mistake: When Courtney, Fern and Foxy are in the cafeteria and they're all drinking diet Coke, Fern has her Coke in her hand near her face when Courtney names her Vylett, but when the shot changes to Fern's face, the Coke is on the table. When the shot changes to show all three, the Coke is in Fern's hand again.

Question: The whole point of the trick is to persuade the police that Liz was murdered after having sex with a random stranger. The police decide to accept this suggestion. Why do they accept this, when they know that a woman pretending to be Liz's mother called the school to say Liz wouldn't come in - ie. the police know that a woman must have been involved, yet they decide it was just a man who did it?

Answer: They have no reason to follow up the call or never did all they know is that she was at home.
