Movie Quote Quiz

Olive Penderghast: Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life.

Brandon: So, what's with your new look? It's very whore couture.

Rhiannon: George is not a sexy name. George is like what you name your teddy bear, not the name you wanna scream out during climax.

Brandon: Do you wanna go out with me?
Olive Penderghast: Brandon, just a couple of hours ago you told me you were gay.
Brandon: You said I should pretend to be straight.
Olive Penderghast: I didn't mean with me!
Brandon: I am tormented every day at school. Just one good, imaginary fling.

Principal Gibbons: This is public school. If I can keep the girls off the pole and the boys off the pipe, I get a bonus.

Mr. Griffith: I don't know what your generation's fascination is with documenting your every thought... But I can assure you, they're not all diamonds."Roman is having an OK day, and bought a Coke Zero at the gas station. Raise the roof." Who gives a rat's ass?

Nina: Perhaps you should embroider a red "A" on your wardrobe, you abominable tramp.
Olive Penderghast: Perhaps you should get a wardrobe, you abominable twat.

Olive Penderghast: I really like this guy, and I might even lose my virginity to him. I dunno when it'll happen. It might be five minutes from now, or tonight, or six months from now, or maybe on our wedding night, but the really amazing thing is, it is nobody's goddamn business. (01:25:40)

Olive Penderghast: I just thought of the funniest thing. My name is an anagram for "I love."

Continuity mistake: In the restaurant scene when Olive is on a date with Anson, after the waitress sets their food down on the table, Olives bib begins changing positions between shots. In one shot it is tied around her neck. In the next, it appears tucked into her shirt down on her chest. The bib goes back and forth several times before she finally takes it off. (01:10:30)
