Andie Quotes in SpaceCamp (1986)
Kathryn: Why are you so hard on me?
Andie: Because someday, you're goin' up. But the only way that will happen is if you have every drill here down better than everyone else. There's no room for mistakes. Every 'i' dotted, every 't' crossed. That's the way I learned it. That's the way you'll learn it. You copy?
Kathryn: I copy.
Rudy Tyler: [while chewing gum] Rudy Tyler, Ma'am.
Andie: Spit it out, Rudy.
Rudy Tyler: RUDY TYLER, MA'AM!
Andie: I meant the gum, Rudy.

Andie: ...Like I know the feeling.
Andie: [They're all in a space shuttle simulator] The computer does most of the work. Now the first lesson I want to teach you is...

Andie: I don't have a "Donaldson."
Kevin: Well, you have one now.

Kevin: I could run down to the 7-Eleven.
Andie: [in the space shuttle] Max, Tish, take your seats on the main deck. If you need any help, just holler.

[blows away a kiss to Ben up on his balcony]
Andie: Poor guy.

Ben: Who's Princess Sophia?
[Andie points at his crotch]
Ben: Nah-nah-nah, nah! Whoa, whoa, you're kidding me, right? Princess Sophia?
Andie: Little, big, little, big? I don't know. We will find out!
Ben: Alright listen, you can't name my... my member Princess Sophia.
Andie: Yes, I can!
Ben: Listen, if you are gonna name m... my member, alright, you gotta name it something hyper masculine, okay? Something like a Spike, a Butch, a Krull the Warrior King!

Andie: Are you saying I'm some kind of mental person?
[Andie is holding a platter of veggies and flings them at the guys and the middle of the poker table, then tosses the platter onto the table]
Andie: True or False: All's fair in love and war.
Andie: Great answer.
Ben: Good question!
Ben: So that's what I was, huh? I was a guinea pig. Somebody you can test your theories on?
Andie: Yeah, and I was just a girl somebody picked out in a bar.
Ben: Yeah, you know what? Big deal. Hell, now you can even use it as a little twist in your story.
Andie: That's a good idea. Maybe we should bet on it.
Ben: You know what, you did your job now, Andie.
Andie: Yes, I did.
Ben: You wanted to lose a guy in ten days, congratulations, you did it. You just lost him.
Andie: No I didn't Ben, 'cause you can't lose something you never had!
Glenda: Now Andie, I hope you know that we expect you to come back here because you have held Ben to his lowest bullshit score since his tonsillectomy and we are thrilled!
Andie: Why, were all his other girlfriends bullshit losers?
Glenda: What other girlfriends? You are the first girl he ever brought home! Don't you break his heart now!
Andie: [crying at restaurant after waitress asks if everything is okay] My boyfriend thinks I'm fat!
[flicks food at Ben]
Andie: And I can't eat in front of him! I can't eat in front of you! I have to go to the bathroom.
Ben: [receives dirty looks from other customers] Honey, I don't think you're fat! I don't think she's fat!

Tony: Yeah, uh, I hate Mr. Sniffles.
Michelle Rubin: So, tell me, how long have you guys been seeing each other?
Andie: Seven days.
Michelle Rubin: Seven days. Interesting.
Ben: Is that too soon to be seeing a therapist?
Andie: Well, Ben, seven days isn't like a lifetime, or anything...
Ben: It's like a week.
Andie: I love you, Binky... but I don't have to like you right now.
[Andie starts crying when Ben places food in front of her]
Ben: Hey, what's wrong?
Andie: Nothing. It's beautiful.
Ben: Thank you.
Andie: You're beautiful. The game, the whole thing. It's just... I wish I ate meat. Mary had a little lamb, little lamb... You have to take it away before I gag.
[Andie dry heaves]
Andie: Benny boo boo... boo boo boo!
Ben: Look who made the trip with me.
Andie: It's our love fern! Oh, Bennie-boo-boo, boo-boo.
Andie: Does Krull the Warrior King want to come out and play?
Ben: You know what, due to intense humiliation, the king has momentarily abdicated his throne, okay?
Andie: Oh. Uh-oh!
Andie: Well, in that case, I better get going. Take care of our love fern, honey.
Andie: I want you to respect me.
Ben: I do. And, I want your respect.
Andie: I respect you for respecting me.
Ben: I respect that.

Ben: Like, shoes?
Michelle Rubin: Oh, you are never going to pull this off.
Andie: Watch me. Tonight, I'll hook a guy. Tomorrow, pull the switch. Before the ten days are up, I'm going to have this guy running for his life.
Jeannie Ashcroft: You're not going to burn his apartment down or bite him, or anything?
Andie: No! I'm going to limit myself to doing everything girls do wrong in relationships. Basically, everything we know guys hate. I'll be clingy, needy...
Jeannie Ashcroft: Be touchy-feely.
Jeannie Ashcroft: Ooh, call him in the middle of the night and tell him everything you had to eat that day.
Michelle Rubin: What's wrong with that?
[Andie & Jeanie stare at Michelle]
Michelle Rubin: I'm kidding.
Thayer: We, you know, we got a whole bunch of work we have to do, but we're still on for poker at your house this weekend?
Ben: Oh, you count on it.
Andie: Whoo! Boys' night.
Andie: I'm taking this love fern with me!
Andie: Why do they always forget my bacon?
Jeannie Ashcroft: I can't believe you got that guy knocked out.
Andie: Only for a few seconds.
Lana Jong: Andie, I am loving your notes on this piece.
Andie: [with her mouth full] Thank you, Lana.
Lana Jong: When are you seeing him again?
Andie: Tonight. He's inviting me over to his house for dinner.
Lana Jong: Excellent! I've got a feeling about this one.
Michelle Rubin: I hate it when she pops her head in like that.
Andie: I never noticed it.
Lana Jong: A-hem. I heard that. And Andie, tonight take smaller bites.
Andie: Thank you, Lana.
Michelle Rubin: Oh, my God!
Jeannie Ashcroft: Disgusting! I can barely eat over here.
[Andie takes an even bigger bite]
Andie: I have to crack this guy. I mean this is Defcon 5, and I have to do something truly appalling. It's not funny.
[Michelle and Jeanie laugh even harder]
Andie: Like, do blondes, like, do they really have more fun?
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: C'mon, I'm talking about more than just sex here.
Andie: No you're not.
Steff: You know, I've been out with a lot of girls at this school. I don't see what makes you so different.
Andie: Well, I have taste.
Steff: [puts cigarette in mouth] You're a bitch.
Andie: I just want them to know that they didn't break me.
Blane: How are you doing?
Andie: Why haven't you called me?
Blane: Oh, I got nailed for the stable thing. I guess the groom saw us. It's against the rules.
Andie: I called you three times and i left messages.
Blane: Yeah? Well I didn't get them. My family... they're irresponsible about that stuff, you know?
Andie: I waited for you this morning.
Blane: Yeah? Where?
Andie: Parking lot. I saw you and I thought you saw me.
Andie: What about prom, Blane?
Blane: Andie, I'm having a bad day. Can we talk later?
Andie: No. What about prom?
Blane: Why don't we meet after school?
Andie: No! What abot prom?
Blane: Andie, come on.
Andie: Just say it.
Andie: Just say it. I wanna hear you say it.
Blane: Andie, please, all right?
Andie: I wanna hear you say it.
Blane: A month ago, I asked somebody else and I forgot.
[Andie pushes him against a locker]
Andie: You're a liar! You're a filthy, fucking, no-good liar. You don't have the guts to tell me the truth. Just say it!
Blane: I'm not lying.
Andie: Tell me!
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!
Iona: Does he have... strong lips?
Andie: How can you tell?
Iona: Did you feel it in your knees?
Andie: I felt it everywhere.
Iona: Strong lips.
Iona: I know I'm old enough to be his mother, but when the Duck laid that kiss on me last night, I swear my thighs just went up in flames! He must practice on melons or something.
Andie: Were you here long?
Duckie: No, no! Three, four... hours.
Andie: May I admire you?
Duckie: If you wish!
Andie: If somebody doesn't believe in me, I can't believe in them.
Andie: I'm really sorry for bumming out the night for you.
Blane: [laughs] You didn't bum out anything. I had a great time.
Andie: [accusing] Liar.
Blane: [looking her in the eye] I was with you. I had a great time. If I was in a Turkish prison, I'd have a great time with you.
Andie: I don't know... it's just too weird for me, you know? Maybe it shouldn't happen.
Blane: What? You and me?
Blane: Well. You know, maybe it doesn't happen all the time, but that doesn't mean it isn't right. Doesn't mean you can't try.
Blane: What do you want to hear?
Andie: Tell me!
Andie: You're ashamed to be seen with me.
Blane: No, I am not!
Andie: You're ashamed to go out with me. You're terrified that you're goddamn rich friends won't approve.
[Andie hits Blane]
Andie: Just say it!
[Andie hits him again]
Andie: Just tell me the truth!
Blane: You don't understand that it has nothing at all do with you.
[Andie runs away]
Blane: [wipes a tear] Andie!
Andie: I don't know what I'm doing!
Iona: Wishful make-upping!
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: What now?
Duckie: Yours or mine? Ours?
Andie: You know, it's so insane that someone you've never met, never talked to can be your enemy.
Andie: So what do you want to drink?
Duckie: Oh you know, beer, scotch, juice box... whatever.
Andie: I mean, he used to be kinda cute but now he's just twitchy.
Andie: I remember the first time I saw someone move like they were from another planet, I couldn't keep my eyes away. I was little mom took me to a jam session in the neighborhood, it started off small but word spread and soon some of the best dancers around were showing up to compete in something they eventually called the streets. It became home, I got a front row seat to history. I wanted to glide and spin and fly like they did, but it didn't come easy. My mom would tell me don't give up, just be you, because life's too short to be anybody else. She was right. When I was 16 my mom got sick and in a couple months she was gone. Everything changed, including the streets.
Andie: The streets are supposed to be about different people coming together... We call this a battle but what are we fighting for? We're all here because we have this thing we do, we dance... Being part of the street used to mean much more than just turf or power... It's about bringing something new to the floor... and it shouldn't matter what we wear, what school or what neighborhood were from because the best part of the streets is not about what you got, it's what you make of what you've got! So if the 410's too scared to defend their title against us, hell, well be doing our thing outside where the streets started!
Chase Collins: Andie!... Come 'ere
Andie: You should really wait your turn... ooooh
Chase Collins: Couldn't
Andie: I didn't know you could Salsa?
Chase Collins: There's a lot you don't know about me, Andie
Andie: Which is surprising, considering how much you talk about yourself
Chase Collins: ooooh
Andie: Look, the streets is about where you're from. It's not some school talent show. There's no spring floors. There's no spotlights to use what you got and... what makes you think you got it, huh?
Chase Collins: Aren't you late for something, Andie?
[Andie gets angry and turns around and leaves]
Chase Collins: [smiles] Bye Andie West!
[Andie turns around to see him]
Chase Collins: You're an amazing little dancer, you know that right?
Moose: ...and then I was like, "Damn, your breath stinks, girl!"
Andie: Why would you ever say that to her?
Moose: Cause I thought it would be cool.
Andie: Well, it wasn't!
Chase Collins: So that's it, huh?
Andie: [sighs] I guess so...
Andie: What's your deal? Boy bands making a comeback?
Chase Collins: Yeah, they actually offer a course on it here
Chase Collins: I'm getting straight A's.
Andie: [sarcasm] That wouldn't surprise me.
Andie: Ow! Pointing hurts!
Blake Collins: Yeah, it's supposed to.
