    Jenny: Babysitter?

    Zee: Mmm-hmm.

    Jenny: Okay, let's cut the crap. Maybe the parents you work for left you forty dollars in emergency money...

    Jenny: [interrupting] Um, Jenny Bennett. Two-term class president at Westbrook Prep.

    Chowder: ... You know there's a... there's a great taco stand near there...

  • Zee: Now what do you want?

    Jenny: Just trying to get a head-start on life and secure a sucessful future.

    Zee: You want a successful future? When a guy with tattoos comes up to the drive-thru, give him his burger, not your phone number.

  • DJ: Questions?

    Chowder: Yes, umm, are you nuts? I don't wanna steal drugs from my Father, I don't wanna go inside a monster, and I don't wanna die!

    Chowder: Yes I agree. Let's do it.

  • Jenny: Smart house.

  • Chowder: We're dead. You've killed us, and we're dead!

    DJ: Shh! I don't think the house knows that we're in here. I bet it thinks we're still in the car.

    Jenny: Listen.

    [rumbling sound]

    Jenny: Sounds like it's sleeping.

    DJ: The only way that we're gonna get out of here alive, is if we find the heart, and put out the fire.

    Chowder: Maybe we should examine our other options?

    DJ: Sure. Other option: we wait here and do nothing until it wakes up and eats us.

    Chowder: Find the heart, put out the fire. Got it.

    Winston: Georgette is not going to like this.

  • [Jenny is at the wharf to ransom Oliver, unaware that Fagin is the kidnapper]

    Jenny: And what kind of person would steal an innocent little kitty?

    [Jenny starts sobbing]

    Fagin: He must have been a poor, desperate man.

    Jenny: It's still wrong. I'm scared. I don't know what to do. I don't know what to do.

    Alec McKuen: Oh no. No, it happened in Edinburgh at our wedding.

    Jenny: He was in such a hurry leaving the church, he fell all the way down the steps.

    Woman: Oh! You poor wee bride. After all that waiting. It's been no marriage for you at all.

    Jenny: You underestimate Alec.

  • Jenny: [on cassette tape] I know you well enough not to ask why you're doing it. Or why you want to do it alone. But I guess if the reason's good enough for you, it's good enough for me.

    Jenny: Yes I have.

    Walter Eckland: Shut up.

  • Walter Eckland: [Jenny, who won't talk, has just given him a bottle of liquor. She doesn't reply when he says "Thank you." He holds up a whistle] See this whistle?

    [Jenny nods "yes"]

    Walter Eckland: Would you like to have it?"

    [She nods "yes" again]

    Walter Eckland: OK. Now, all you have to do is repeat three simple words after me. Is that a deal?

    [She nods "yes"]

    Walter Eckland: Just repeat three words. Alright. Elephant.

    Jenny: [Looks from Eckland to the whistle and back. Seems to consider for a moment] Elephant.

    Walter Eckland: [He smiles, slightly] Rhinoceros.

    Jenny: [More quickly this time] Rhinoceros.

    Walter Eckland: Wrong.

    Jenny: WHy?

  • Matilda: I love it here! I love my school... it isn't fair! Miss Honey, please don't let them...

    Matilda: Matilda!

    Harry Wormwood: Whatever.

    Matilda: I want to stay with Miss Honey.

    Zinnia Wormwood: Miss Honey doesn't want you. Why would she want some snotty, disobedient kid?

    Jenny: Because she's a spectacularly wonderful child and I love her.

    Matilda: Adopt me, Miss Honey! You can adopt me.

    Harry Wormwood: Look, I don't have time for all these legalities!

    Matilda: One second, Dad. I have the adoption papers.

    Zinnia Wormwood: What? Where did you get those?

    Matilda: From a book in the library. I've had them since I was big enough to Xerox.

  • Matilda: Why don't you run away?

    Jenny: I've often thought about it, but... I can't abandon my children. And if I couldn't teach, I'd have nothing at all.

    Matilda: You're very brave, Miss Honey.

    Jenny: Not as brave as you.

    Matilda: I thought grown-ups weren't afraid of anything.

    Jenny: Quite the contrary. All grown-ups get scared, just like children.

    Matilda: I wonder what Miss Trunchbull is afraid of.

  • Zinnia Wormwood: Look, Miss Snit, a girl does not get anywhere by acting intelligent! I mean, take a look at you and me. You chose books - I chose looks. I have a nice house, a wonderful husband... and you are slaving away teaching snot-nosed children their ABCs. You want Matilda to go to college? Ha, ha, ha, ha...

    Harry Wormwood: College?


    Harry Wormwood: I didn't go to college. I don't know anybody who did. Bunch of hippies and cesspool salesmen, ha ha ha ha...

    Jenny: [insulted] Don't sneer at educated people, Mr. Wormwood. If you became ill, heaven forbid, your doctor would be a college graduate.

    Harry Wormwood: Yeah...

    Jenny: Or - or say you were sued for selling a faulty car. The lawyer who defended you would have gone to college, too.

    Harry Wormwood: What car? Sued by who? Who you been talking to?

    Jenny: N-nobody.


    Jenny: I can see we're not going to agree, are we?

  • Matilda: This is the cottage from your story!

  • [Miss Trunchbull has accused Matilda of going into her house]

    Jenny: Miss Trunchbull, I was the one who was at your house last night, and I think...

    Agatha Trunchbull: [grabbing and clenching Miss Honey's wrist very tightly in her fist] I broke your arm once before; I can do it again, Jenny.

    Jenny: [suddenly mad, she briskly releases her arm from Miss Trunchbull's grip with her free hand] I am *not* seven years old anymore, Aunt Trunchbull!

    [the class gasps]

    Agatha Trunchbull: Shut your mouths!

  • Jenny: [sees a painting of Ms. Trunchbull] Oh my. My father's portrait used to hang there.

    Matilda: Whoever painted The Trunchbull must have had a strong stomach. A really strong stomach.

  • Agatha Trunchbull: The distance the shotput goes, depends upon the effort that you PUT INTO IT. PERSPERATION! If you can't handle the little brat, I'LL LOCK HER IN THE CHOKEY!

    [she lunges the ball at the door, ultimately puncturing it immensely]

    Agatha Trunchbull: Get it?

    Jenny: [nods] Yes, ma'am.

    Agatha Trunchbull: One day Jen, you'll see that everything I do is for your own good. And for the good of those - PUTRESCENT LITTLE CHILDREN!

    [she shoves Jenny out of her office and slams the door after her]

  • Jenny: Matilda, you promised me you wouldn't go back in that house again.

    Matilda: I didn't, I was on the garage roof.


    Matilda: I did it with my powers.

  • Matilda: We'll wait until she's gone, then we'll go get your doll.

    Jenny: What?

    Matilda: Just kidding.

  • Cooper: I'm taking a nap. Wake me up when the train gets here.

    Jenny: It says here this town has a famous nude beach.

    Cooper: Alright, look, we can't all just lie around all day, we've got to get out there and experience the culture first hand!

  • Jenny: Sorry to hear about Fiona. She's a whore.

    Scott: Well, that's very sweet of you. Thanks.

  • Cooper: Show her the picture. She makes every girl in our high school look like a walrus.

    Jenny: I'm a girl from your high school.

    Cooper: No, I mean *girl* girls.

  • Cooper: There's got to be a hundred drunk girls here, and we should be trying to have sex with every one of them!

    Jenny: Hello. Mixed company?

    Cooper: What?

    Jenny: I'm a girl.

    Scott: No, you're not.

    Cooper: Yeah, you're just a cool guy with long hair.

  • Jamie: [to the tour group] This is so strange! Usually, they wait 15 days to elect a new Pope. We could be seeing history in the making.

    Jenny: [to herself] We could be seeing an arrest in the making.

  • Jenny: I'M COMING!

  • Jamie: I spent the last four years tutoring the lacrosse players just to pay for it. So nobody touches my camera but me.

    Cooper: So it's like your wiener.

    Jamie: No, it's not like my- Jenny!

    Jenny: Cooper! Leave him alone.

  • [Cooper, in serious pain and humiliated from last night's BDSM "living nightmare", arrives to see both Scott and Jenny sitting on the bench and also humiliated from the incident at a bakery]

    ScottJenny: Don't wanna talk about it.

    Scott: [notices the Vandersexxx t-shirt] What is that?

    Cooper: Free t-shirt.

  • Scott: So, have you guys decided where you're gonna go first?

    Jenny: Paris! I can't wait. I heard two years ago, Nicky Jager's sister Debbie met this really wealthy French guy, and they spent a month sailing the Mediterranean on his yacht. Isn't that just the most romantic thing you've ever heard?

    Cooper: Stuck on a boat with a weird French guy? That sounds a little gay.

    Jenny: It's not gay. I'm a girl.

    Scott: Kinda gay.

    Cooper: A little gay.

  • Jenny: So you just go around Europe sleeping with every woman you meet?

    Christoph: No, please Jenny, it is not like that. I also sleep with men.

    Jenny: [straightens and turns around] What's up?

    Cooper: Oh Jesus, Jenny, I thought you were some girl.

  • Cooper: So who's Cristoff?

    Jenny: I don't wanna talk about it.

  • Cooper: So how's Cristoff?

    [Takes bottle of alcohol and drinks it all]

  • Jenny: [furious that Jamie was mugged during oral sex] All of our money. Our passports! Our tickets! Everything! Gone!

  • [the spell is broken as the party guests come out all beat and sweaty]

    Jenny: [singing and laughing] I put a spell on you.

    Dave: And I thought L.A. was a party town.

  • Jenny: Hey, Max, how was school?

    Max: It sucked!

    Dave: Hey, watch your language.

    [Max goes upstairs and slams his bedroom door]

    Max: I can't believe you made me move here!

    Jenny: Hmm, he wasn't wearing any shoes.

    Dave: Must be some form of protest.

  • Max: [suddenly startled by Dave in a vampire costume] Oh! Dad.

    Dave: It's not Dad. It's Dadcula.

    [see's Allison]

    Dave: Oh, my goodness. Who must this charming young blood donor be?

    [kisses Allison's hand]

    Max: Dad! Something terrible happened.

    Dave: [suddenly concerned] Dani? What's wrong? Wh

    Max: No, Dani's fine.

    Dave: [sighs] Good.

    [to Allison]

    Dave: Excuse me. Come here.

    [he leads Max away]

    Dani: [looks for Jenny, and finds her] Mom?

    [Jenny turns around in a Madonna costume]

    Dani: Mom?

    Jenny: Hmm?

    Dani: What are you supposed to be?

    Jenny: Madonna. Well, you know. Well, obviously. Don't ya think?

    Dave: Shoot, Max. Look, whatever it is, just tell me.

    Dani: [to Jenny] Come here.

    Jenny: What?

    Dani: This cat here, Binx, right? He can talk. My brother's a virgin: he lit the black flame candle. The witches are back from the dead and they're after us. We need help.

    Jenny: How much candy have you had, honey?

    Dani: Mom, I haven't O.D.'d. I haven't even had a piece. They're real witches, they can fly, and they're gonna eat all the kids in Salem. They're real!

    Jenny: All right, let's just find your father.

  • Mrs. Gwyneth Harridan: Rock for Daddy Day Care... Do you know what this means?

    Jenny: A... chance to prove ourselves in a little healthy competition?

  • Jenny: I seriously think it's time for you to move on and stop this broken-heart stuff.

    Rick: All right. So... you wanna hook up?

    Jenny: You're gonna have to try a lot harder than that, Rick.

    Rick: [pause, lower] Soooo... ya still wanna hook up?

    [Jenny laughs]

  • Rick: You're pretty good with these kids. They seem to like you.

    Sam, The Fun Police: Hank?

    Coconut Pete: Yes, Hank. The head of security on all my tours.

    Jenny: So, what? He keeps aging hippies from stealing the bong out of your tour bus?

    Coconut Pete: It just so happens Hank used to be a federal agent. Yes, that's right. Headed a FBI task force on serial killers. Single-handedly caught the Minneapolis Mangler.

    Lars: Who's the Minneapolis Mangler?

    Hank: Exactly.

    Dave: Pete, you are aware that I've personally served this guy twenty beers a day for the last ten years, right?

    Jenny: What the hell's wrong with you Putman? Everyone knows Dave's parents got killed at a Pete show.

    Juan: Way to bring up on a sore subject.

  • Sam: [referring to lyrics form a Coconut Pete song] You know, octopus spelled backwards is supotco. Juan, isn't that Spanish for something?

    Juan: Supotco? No. But, the word for shoe is zapato.

    Sam: hmm, shoe.

    Putman: [returning from being on stage] What'd I miss?

    John O'Hanlan: Yeah, I know. When I was a boy down in the panhandle, that was before I slipped my hobbles, I was a real stargazer. I tell you, Jenny, I dreamed and I planned big things. And then I started drifting... and I've been drifting ever since.

  • John O'Hanlan: Well, how much money does he need to get her liver fixed?

    Jenny: Five hundred dollars.

    John O'Hanlan: Five hundred dollars for a liver?

    Jenny: That's what the big doctor in Chicago charges. And he's got all kinds of fancy letters in back of his name.

    John O'Hanlan: I don't care what's in back of his name! Five hundred dollars - that's more than you have to pay for a good horse!

  • Guy Jamieson: Well, I'm not discounting the possibility, but I'd like to get to know you first.

    Jenny: I think you're taking a big risk there.

    Guy Jamieson: Why?

    Jenny: Well you might get to know me, and find out you don't like me and then you'll miss out on a fantastic root.

    Guy Jamieson: Shouldn't we find out if we any things in common?

  • Jenny: You're going straight from youth to old age and missing the middle bit.

    Guy Jamieson: What's the middle bit?

  • Jenny: Guy and I have a bit of an announcement to make.

    Guy Jamieson: We've decided to split up.

  • [Jonny drags Anne off the train to pose as his fiancee again, leaving her friends open-mouthed]

    Jonathan Reynolds Jr.: Come on, I'll give you another fifty dollars!

    Jenny: Well, what do you know!

    Jackie Donovan: Don't worry, Jenny, it's platonic. He wants her for his father.

  • Amsterdam Vallon: I give you my word, this all will be finished tomorrow.

    Jenny: No, it won't.

  • Jenny: [after running into Johnny] Look where you are going, Johnny!

    [notices Amsterdam]

    Jenny: You look stunned and poorly, sir.

    [both of the men are silent and nervous]

    Jenny: [sarcastic] Quite a pair of conversationists, aren't you.

    Amsterdam Vallon: Maybe not. We're deep thinkers.

    Jenny: [chuckles] Well then. Gentlemen, I leave you in the grace and favour of the Lord.

    [walks off]

  • Amsterdam Vallon: Is there anyone in the five points you *haven't* fucked?

    Jenny: Yes! *You!*

  • [speaking of Bill the Butcher]

    Jenny: When I was twelve years old, my mother was dead, and I was livin' in a doorway. He took me in. Took care of me, in his way. After they cut out the baby... well, he doesn't fancy girls that's scarred up. But you might as well know in your own mind that he never laid a hand on me until I asked him to.

  • Bill: Anything in your pockets?

    Jenny: I ain't started working yet.

  • Jenny: You like Patsy Cline? I just love her. I wonder how come she don't put out no more new records.

    Bobby: Because she's dead.

    Jenny: Oh... that's sad. Don't that make you sad?

    Bobby: I've had time to get over it.

  • Jenny: Bye, Mister. Don't go nowhere without me. I wanna have your love child.

  • [last lines]

    Jenny: My world has changed. I try to follow its rules. It's a beautiful world, my new mother says. She tells me to hang on. That I'm doing well. That I'll get used to it with time. I'm not like the others. I guess they've forgotten. I can't.

    Jenny: Every morning I wake up to the same thought of giving it all up and running back home. But I remind myself I wanted this life. I wanted it. I made it happen. I guess it's better this way, right? Right? Right?

  • Jenny: My name is Jenny and everyone's a fucking joke.

  • Guiseppe: [after walking in on Antonio and Jenny having sex] Hell yea - when can I get in on that shit?

    Jenny: Fuck off, Guiseppe.

    Guiseppe: All I'm sayin' is that if I was an ugly bitch and two hot dudes like us wanted to fuck me, I'd be into it.

  • Young Nerf: Which one of you, which one of you is gonna suck me off first?

    [points at each one]

    Young Nerf: You? You?

    Diane: What you got? You got nothin'!

    Young Antonio: [flashes them] How about that?

    Jenny: [laughing] No, I like it! It's cute - I like it.

  • [Jenny lays in bed as Cain pretends to be Carter by laying in the bed beside her]

    Jenny: [Cain runs his hand up Jenny's leg] Oh, Dr. Nix.

    Jenny: [Cain runs his hand up Jenny's shirt] Oh, how horny we are.

    Jenny: [Cain bites down on Jenny's ear] Ow! You're hurting me.

  • [Jenny talks to her friend Sarah at the park about Carter]

    Sarah: Now, I hate to bring this up, but you are married to the perfect man.

    Jenny: The perfect man? Yesterday, out of the blue, he started to make love to me... and then stopped when Amy started to cry.

    Sarah: Well, just because he was worried about Amy...

    Jenny: He wasn't worried about Amy, because he didn't even go to her room. He went downstairs, got into his car and drove off.

    Sarah: Well, that doesn't make any sense.

    Jenny: Carter isn't making any sense. And he's becoming awfully compulsive with Amy. He doesn't just take care of her, he studies her. I have this horrible feeling it has something to do with his father.

  • [Jenny returns home and fights Carter for trying to kill her, who doesn't remember a thing]

    Jenny: [Jenny holds a knife to Carter's throat] Wake up! Don't move or I'll cut it.

    Carter: Jenny, what are you doing? I'm bleeding. Oh my god, I'm bleeding!

    Jenny: [Jenny sarcastically replies with a smile, being a doctor] And I can help you.

    Carter: Don't let me die, Jenny!

    Jenny: [Jenny screams back] I want to know what you've done with Amy!

    Carter: Amy? What are you saying?

    Jenny: [Jenny pulls on Carter's shirt] I want answers, Carter!

    Carter: Jenny!

    Jenny: How could you let me drown like that?

    Carter: Drown? What's happening?

  • [Cain talks to Carter as Jenny holds Carter down with a knife]

    Cain: [Cain stands over Jenny's shoulder] She wants to know where her brat is. So why don't you tell her before you get your throat cut.

    Carter: [Carter replies back looking to Cain] But I don't know where she is.

    Cain: [Cain imitates Carter] 'I don't know where she is.'

    Carter: I don't!

    Jenny: [Jenny looks over her shoulder] Who are you talking to?

    Cain: I do. I took her to dear ol' dad.

    Carter: Where is she?

    Jenny: [Jenny looks behind herself again seeing that nobody's there] Who are you talking to?

  • [the detectives hope that Carter isn't too nuts to stand trial]

    Lt. Terri: Well, let's hope he's not too nuts.

    Jenny: What do you mean?

    Lt. Terri: Too nuts to go to jail.

    Jack: You mean, he might not go to jail?

    Lt. Terri: First, we gotta find out if he's competent to stand trial. Even if he is, any smart lawyer'll plead him not guilty by reason of insanity. And, depending on what Waldheim finds out, Carter could wind up a celebrity mental case in some cushy institution.

  • [Dr. Waldheim returns to Lt. Terri's office, confirming Carter is Cain]

    Lt. Terri: Carter is Cain?

    Dr. Waldheim: And Josh and Margo and God knows who else. Now it is clear to me... how Dr. Nix got all his precise data. He traumatized his own son. Then over the years, he observed the effects.

    Jenny: Does Carter know what he did?

    Dr. Waldheim: Carter didn't do anything. Cain did all the killing.

    Jack: Who is Cain?

    Dr. Waldheim: One of Carter's multiples. One of the ones Dr. Nix created when he abused him as a child. When something bad is about to happen to Carter, or when something bad has to be done, Carter blacks out and Cain takes over. After the unpleasantness, Cain exits and Carter wakes up. He has lost some time. He doesn't remember how he got where he is... or what happened while he was asleep. He may be confused, but his conscience is clean.

  • [Jenny talks to Sarah at the park, who recommends she be ready for Carter returning back]

    Sarah: Well, just in case he shows up, I'd be packing a .45.

    Jenny: Well, Jack's staying with me now. So...

    Sarah: Better than a .45.

    Amy: [Jenny tracks down Amy who ran into the woods at the park] Where's Daddy?

    Jenny: Daddy's not here, sweetie. He's gone away.

    Amy: Daddy's here!

    Jenny: No he's not. Come on, honey, we've got to head back. Come to mommy.

    [Jenny leans down to pick up Amy, revealing Margo standing behind her in a brown wig, red jacket, with a big smile]

  • Paula: I liked the way you took on Charlie today. Ain't many fish that would fuck with Chuck.

    Jenny: I didn't know who I was messing with. Seems like Charlie and Edna have an understanding.

    Paula: Yeah. Charlie's under and Edna's standing.

  • Ed Fanelli: Oh, that's it. I'm out of here. I'm gonna go see my boys. We're going bowling tonight. League Champs, I might ad.

    Jenny: Oh, I could care. You know, do they even HAVE social lives? I have never seen two grown men so obsessed with hanging out with their father, instead to trying to get dates or attempting to meet women.

    Ed Fanelli: Well, maybe that's what we're doing when we go out, ever think of that?

    Jenny: Please. Who would possibly be interested in YOU? I can't believe I was for that one fleeting moment.

    Ed Fanelli: Oh, yeah? You know, that front door hasn't moved.

  • Jenny: Its ok darling. When you get a job, I'll quit work. Then we can finally raise our family.

  • Jenny: If you never do anything, you never become anyone.

    Miss Stubbs: You seem to be old and wise.

    Jenny: I feel old. But not very wise.

  • Jenny: The life I want, there is no shortcut.

  • Headmistress: Nobody does anything worth doing without a degree.

    Jenny: Nobody does anything worth doing WITH a degree. No woman anyway.

    Headmistress: So what I do isn't worth doing? Or what Miss Stubbs does, or Mrs. Wilson, or any of us here? Because none of us would be here without a degree. You do realize that, don't you? And yes, of course studying is hard and boring...

    Jenny: Boring!

    Headmistress: I'm sorry?

    Jenny: Studying is hard and boring. Teaching is hard and boring. So, what you're telling me is to be bored, and then bored, and finally bored again, but this time for the rest of my life? This whole stupid country is bored! There's no life in it, or color, or fun! It's probably just as well the Russians are going to drop a nuclear bomb on us any day now. So my choice is to do something hard and boring, or to marry my... Jew, and go to Paris and Rome and listen to jazz, and read, and eat good food in nice restaurants, and have fun! It's not enough to educate us anymore Ms. Walters. You've got to tell us why you're doing it.

  • Jenny: [Jenny's thoughts on sex ] It's funny though, isn't it? All that poetry and all those songs, about something that lasts no time at all.

  • Jenny: I don't want to lose my virginity to a piece of fruit.

    Jenny: One of the boys I dated, and they were boys, suggested that we go to Paris and I said I'd always wanted to see Paris. As if I'd never been!

  • David: Do you go to concerts?

    Jenny: No. We don't believe in concerts.

    David: Oh, I assure you, they're real.

  • Jenny: If people die the moment that they graduate, then surely it's the things we do beforehand that count.

  • Jack: We have to have this out. Well, if you won't do it, I will. I'm still your father.

    Jenny: You're my father again now, are you? And what were you when you encouraged me to throw my life away? Silly schoolgirls are always getting seduced by glamorous older men, but what about you two?

  • Headmistress: He's a Jew? You're aware, I take it, that the Jews killed our Lord?

    Jenny: And you're aware, I suppose, that our Lord was Jewish?

  • Jenny: [Reading from envelopes she found in David's car] Mr. and Mrs. David Goldman. Mr. and Mrs. David Goldman. Mr. and Mrs. David- you're married!

    David: Legally yes, but...

    Jenny: When were you going to tell me?

    David: Soon, it just never seemed like the right time. You seemed so happy, and I was happy...

    Jenny: You were living with your wife all this time, around the corner! Byron Avenue. It's no wonder we kept bumping into each other, is it? What number?

    David: 34. Don't be like this, come on.

    Jenny: I have nothing. I didn't take my exams. I... I left school. Where's it all gone now?

  • Jenny: Miss Brode never got married like our mothers and fathers.

    Sandy: They don't have primes.

    Jenny: They have sexual intercourse.

  • Jenny: [Seeing Caroline in the restroom] Ugh, slut.

    Caroline Wexler: What did you call me?

    Jenny: I think I just called you a slut, slut.

    Caroline Wexler: Why?

    Jenny: Because everyone knows that you've banged, like, forty different guys since you came here.

    Caroline Wexler: Really? Forty?

    [pause to look in mirror]

    Caroline Wexler: Okay, let's just say that I have banged forty guys. What's the problem? You're just jealous because you've been, ah, brainwashed by puritanical assholes who think sex is a sin. But then again, your, ah, little gerbil-sized brain has been reprogrammed by the media to believe that sex is the be-all, end-all. So now you're stuck, right? 'Cause on the one hand you love to fuck, but afterwards you feel overwhelmed by guilt & you're not sure why. Maybe it's because sex is neither as good or as evil as you've built it up to be.

    Jenny: [hurt pause] Shut up, slut!

    Caroline Wexler: Jenny, seriously, listen to me! The highlight of your entire life is gonna be your yearbook photo. You are already nostalgic for shit that has not even happened yet cause you have so precious little to look forward to. You're gonna spend the first half of your life planning your wedding and you're gonna spend the second half regretting it. And if I were you - and thank god I'm not, cause you have terrible hair - I would stop and I would reconsider your whole value system, because everything you know is wrong.

    Diane Bradford: Who?

    Jenny: The guy who was preaching.

    Diane Bradford: Oh I thought it was a bunch of bull.

    Patty Myers: Oh some people get all strung out over things that don't even matter. I mean I'm a Christian.

    Jenny: You are?

    Patty Myers: Well not like *he* was a Christian. I mean I go to church about every week, I try to follow the 10 Commandments, I read my Bible once in a while, and I try and help people if they need it.

    Diane Bradford: [laughing] You're practically a missionary.

    Patty Myers: Well what else is there?

    Jenny: I don't know.

  • Girl at teen center: That's right, Jenny, in a way it *is* free, what I mean is it doesn't cost anything but your life.

    Jenny: That sounds pretty expensive.

    Girl at teen center: Well it might seem that way, until you realize that you're living with God who created you. The God who cares for you more than any other person could. That you're letting Him take over. There's no way you could lose.

  • Girl at teen center: But He's done it for us, Jenny, that's why He came to Earth. Jesus Christ was born a human being, and He grew and lived the life that God's holiness demands of each of us. And He was punished and killed, punished as though He was one of us.

    Jenny: That seems so unfair.

    Girl at teen center: Who said love is fair?

  • Pastor Balmer: I'm reminded of a neighbor I had back in Nebraska who got up one night in the middle of the night, took off his pajama tops and went downstairs for some ice tea. In the meantime his wife had awakened out of her sleep and discovered her husband was gone, turned on the light, found his pajama tops, and was immediately convinced that the rapture had taken place and that she had been left behind. Well from our studies in the past few weeks, we can conclude that we're living now in the end times, the days in which we live are seeing many prophecies being fulfilled that we have never seen fulfilled before. And surely this serves to remind us that the time is short at best, and if we would be followers of Jesus Christ, we must join His band now.

    Susan: [cut to Susan coming home] Mom, I'm home. Sandy had to go to her aunt's so I came home early. Mom?

People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, and a whole list of other things.
