Anywhere But Here (1999)
mother made an amazing amount of noise when she ate her food like
she was trying to take on the whole world. Sometimes I hated her.
Sometimes I just couldn't stand her. Sometimes I thought she was
ruining my life. What kept me going was knowing that one day I'd
Never Been Kissed (1999)
"Sex is really fun when you're old enough, which none of you are. Trust me, I should know. Because when you lose it to some guy named Junior with bad breath in the back of a van at a Guns n' Roses concert, you're gonna wish you had listened to your mother when she said: 'You know, nobody's gonna want to buy the whole friggin' ice cream truck when you're handin' out the popsicles for free!'"
"Let me tell you something, I don't care about being your stupid prom queen. I'm 25 years old. I'm an undercover reporter for the Chicago Sun Times and I have been beating my brains out trying to impress you people. Let me tell you something Gibby, Kirsten, Kristin, you will spend your lives trying to figure out how to keep others down because it makes you feel more important. Why her? Let me tell you something about this girl. She is unbelievable. I was new here and she befriended me - no questions asked. But you, you were only my friend after my brother, Rob, posed as a student and told you to like me...All of you people, there is a big world out there, bigger than prom, bigger than high school and it won't matter if you were the prom queen, or the quarterback of the football team, or the biggest nerd in school. Find out who you are and try not to be afraid of it."
Notting Hill (1999)
is it about men and nudity? Particularly breasts? How can you be
so interested in them?"
live in Notting Hill. You live in Beverly Hills. Everyone in the
world knows who you are. My mother has trouble remembering my name."
Runaway Bride (1999)
"I love Eggs Benedict, I hate every other kind. I hate big weddings with everybody staring. I'd like to get married on a weekday while everybody's at work. And when I ride off into the sunset, I want my own horse."
I was walking down the aisle, I was walking toward somebody who didn't
have any idea who I really was. And it was only half the other person's
fault, because I had done everything to convince him that I was exactly
what he wanted. So it was good that I didn't go through with it because
it would have been a lie. But you - you knew the real me."
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
"I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate it, I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all."
"You're not as mean as you think you are, you know that?"
Erin Brockovich (2000)
don't need pity, I need a paycheck. And I've looked. But when you've
spent the past six years raising babies, it's real hard to convince
someone to give you a job that pays worth a damn. Are ya gettin'
every word of this down, honey, or am I talkin' too fast?...I'm smart,
I'm hard-working, and I'll do anything. I'm not leaving here without
a job. (pause) (softly) Don't make me beg. If it doesn't work out,
fire me. Don't make me beg."
"Which number do you want, George?...Oh, I got numbers comin' outta my ears. For instance: ten...That's how many months old my baby girl is...Yeah. Yeah, sexy, huh? How 'bout this for a number? Six. That's how old my other daughter is. Eight is the age of my son. Two is how many times I've been married - and divorced. Sixteen is the number of dollars I have in my bank account. 850-3943 - that's my phone number. And with all the numbers I gave you, I'm guessing zero is the number of times you're gonna call it."
now, you many want to..now .that you're working here, you may want
to re-think your wardrobe a little...Well, I think, uh, some of the
girls are a little uncomfortable because of what you wear."
Miss Congeniality (2000)
-- (sing-song) "You think I'm gorgeous, you want to kiss me...You want to hug me... You want to love me... You want to f--k me... You want to screw me... You want to..."
-- "I am in a dress, I have gel in my hair, I haven't slept all night, I'm starved, and I'm armed! Don't mess with me!"
Jersey, as you know, there are many who consider the Miss United
States Pageant to be outdated and anti-feminist. What would you say
"Miss Rhode Island, describe your perfect date."
"My idea of a perfect date would be a man who takes me to a romantic
dinner, and then we walk along the beach barefoot discussing books
and - and music and - and movies."
"What is the one most important thing our society needs?"
What Women Want (2000)
"Let's try to look at the upside of this, shall we? You know, Freud died at age 83 still asking one question. What do women want? Wouldn't it be strange and wonderful if you were the one man on earth finally able to answer that question? Listen to me, Nick. Something extraordinary and I think miraculous has happened to you. My advice is, you must learn from this. You know, there isn't a single woman that I treat that doesn't wish her man understood her better. If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, then you speak Venusian. The world can be yours. I don't know how this happened to you or why, but you may just be the luckiest man on earth. Imagine the possibilities. If you know what women want, you can rule."
for the piece of resistance, we have, uh, we have the right leg.
(he applies a glob of wax to his leg)...Oh, hot, hot, geez, ooh,
that's hot!...Okay, we passed and next, we immediately apply disposable
cloth over the waxed area. (he places the strip on the waxed area)
Yes, yeah, feels kinda nice, yeah. I dunno why women complain about
waxing their legs. In one smooth motion, yank the strip quickly in
the opposite direction of the hair growth. That would be north. And
1, 2, 3! (he yanks off the cloth strip) Ooowwwww!"
Where the Heart Is (2000)
got a man?"
too late, isn't it, Forney?"
Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)
"The only thing worse than smug married couple. Lots of smug married couples."
number one: obviously, will lose twenty pounds. Number two: always
put last night's panties in the laundry basket. Equally important.
Will find nice sensible boyfriend to go out with and not continue
to form romantic attachments to any of the following: alcoholics,
workaholics, commitment-phobics, peeping toms, megalomaniacs, emotional
fuckwits, or perverts."
Legally Blonde (2001)
you're breaking up with me, because I'm too... blonde?"
me, Paulette. You have all the equipment, you just need to read the
manual. Do you know what I'm saying? OK, I'm gonna show you a little
maneuver my mother taught me in junior high. In my experience, it
has a 98% success rate of getting a man's attention and when used
appropriately -- it has an 83% rate of return on a dinner invitation.
It's called the 'bend and snap.'"
have to wonder if the defendant kept a thorough record of every sperm
emission made during his life?...Well, unless the defendant attempted
to contact every single one-night-stand to determine if a child resulted
in those unions -- he has no parental claim over this child whatsoever.
Why now? Why this sperm?...And for that matter, all masturbatory
emissions where his sperm was clearly not seeking an egg could be
termed reckless abandonment."
The Wedding Planner (2001)
barely know you. I don't know your dad's first name, I don't know
if you ever wore braces, or contacts, or glasses and I have no idea
how you came to be a wedding planner, Mary. But I do know the curves
of your face. And I know every fleck of gold in your eyes. I know
that the night at the park was the best time I've ever had. Pl-please
