Dr. Lilian Thurman: Do you still think about girls a lot?

Sean Smith: Beer and pussy. That's all I need.
Ronald Fisher: Well we gotta find ourselves a Smurfette.
Sean Smith: Smurfette?
Ronald Fisher: Mmm-hmm [gulps beer]. Not some like tight-ass Middlesex chick, y'know? Like this cute little blonde that'll get down and dirty with the guys. Like Smurfette does.
Sean Smith: [Nods Agreement] Hmm.
Donnie: Smurfette doesn't ****.
Ronald Fisher: That's bullshit. Smurfette ****s all the other Smurfs. Why do you think Papa Smurf made her? It's because all the other Smurfs were getting too horny.
Sean Smith: No, no, no, not Vanity. I heard he was a homosexual.
Ronald Fisher: Okay well you know what then, she ****s them while Vanity watches, okay?
Sean Smith: Well what about Papa Smurf? I mean, he must get into all the action.
Ronald Fisher: Yeah. What he does: He films the gangbang, later on...he beats off to the tape.
Donnie: [earnestly] First of all: Papa Smurf didn't create Smurfette - Gargamel did! She was sent in as Gargamel's evil spy with the intention of destroying the Smurf village. But the overwhelming goodness of the Smurf way of life transformed her. And as for the whole gangbang scenario - Huh! I - it just couldn't happen. Smurfs are asexual, th-they don't even have...reproductive organs under those little...white...pants. That's what's so illogical, y'know, about being a Smurf. Y'know what's the point of living... if you don't have a dick?
Sean Smith: [sighs] Dammit Donnie wh-why you gotta get so smart on us?

Donnie: Ling Ling finds a wallet on the ground filled with money. She takes the wallet to the address on the driver's license but keeps the money inside the wallet. <Scoffs> I-'m sorry Mrs. Farmer. I don't get this.
Kitty Farmer: Just place an X on the Life Line in the appropriate place.
Donnie: No, I mean I know what to do, I just don't get this. You can't just lump things into two categories. Things aren't that simple.
Kitty: The Life Line is divided that way.
Donnie: Life isn't that simple. I mean who cares if Ling Ling returns the wallet and keeps the money? It has nothing to do with either fear or love.
Kitty: Fear and love are the deepest of human emotions.
Donnie: Okay. But you're not listening to me. There are other things that need to be taken into account. Like the whole spectrum of human emotion. You can't just lump everything into these two categories and then just deny everything else.
Kitty: If you don't complete the assignment you'll get a zero for the day.

Principal Cole: Donald let me preface this by saying your Iowa test scores are intimidating... So, let's go over this again, what exactly did you say to Ms. Farmer?
Kitty Farmer: [interrupting] I'll tell you what he said - he asked me to forcibly insert the Lifeline exercise card into my anus!

Emily Bates: Mom said the school is closed today because it's flooded, and there's feces everywhere!

Donnie: When it reminds you of how beautiful the world can be?
Gretchen: Yeah... [turns her head] and right now there's some fat guy over there staring at us.

Donnie: Well look, um... uh... you wanna go with me?
Gretchen: Where do you wanna go?

No one ever knows what they want to be when they grow up. You know it takes a little, little while to find that out, right, Jim? And you... yeah, you. Sick of some jerk shoving your head down the toilet? Well, you know what? Maybe... you should lift some weights, or uh, take a karate lesson and the next time he tries to do it, you kick him in the balls.
Jim Cunningham: Son... DO YOU SEE THIS? This is an Anger Prisoner. A textbook example. DO YOU SEE THE FEAR, PEOPLE? This boy is scared to death of the truth. Son, it breaks my heart to say this, but I believe you are a very troubled and confused young man. I believe you are searching for the answers in all the wrong places...
Donnie: You're right, actually. I am pretty- I'm, I'm pretty troubled and I'm, I'm pretty confused. But I. . .and I'm afraid. Really, really afraid. Really afraid. But I... I... I think you're the ****ing Antichrist.

Elizabeth: I'm not gonna squeeze one out until I'm thirty.
Donnie: Will you still be working at Yarn Barn 'cause that's a great place to raise children.

Elizabeth Darko: Donnie, you're such a dick.
Donnie: Whoa, Elizabeth! A little hostile there. Maybe you should be the one in therapy. So Mom and Dad can pay someone $200 an hour to listen to all your thoughts, so we don't have to.
Elizabeth: OK, you want to tell Mom and Dad why you stopped taking your medication?
Donnie: You're such a ****ass!
Elizabeth: What?!
Rose Darko: Please.
Elizabeth: Did you just call me a “****ass”?
Rose: Elizabeth, that's enough.
Elizabeth: You can go suck a ****.
Donnie: Oh please tell me, Elizabeth, how exactly does one suck a ****?
Elizabeth: You want me to tell you?
Rose: We will not have THIS at the dinner table.
Donnie: Please, tell me... I'm all ears.

Donnie Darko: Why do you wear that stupid bunny suit?
Frank: Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?

Dr. Lilian Thurman: Has he ever told you about his friend Frank?

Dr. Lilian Thurman: Yes, the giant bunny rabbit...
Edward Darko: What?
Rose Darko: I don't recall him ever having mentioned a rabbit.

Donnie: Frank, when's this gonna stop?
Frank: You should already know that.

Dr. Lillian Thurman: Do you feel alone right now?
Donnie: I... I don't know... I mean, I'd like to believe that I'm not, but I just... I've just never seen any proof, so I... I just don't debate it anymore. You know, it's like I could spend my whole life debating it over and over again, weighting the pro's and con's and in the end, I still wouldn't have any proof, so I just... I just don't debate it anymore. Heh, it's absurd...
Dr. Thurman: The search for God is absurd?

Donnie: I don't wanna be alone.

Dr. Lilian Thurman: Did Frank...tell you to do these things?
Donnie: I have to obey him, he saved my life! I have to obey him...or else I'll be left all alone. And then...then I won't be able to figure out what this is all about. I won't be able to kn...know his master plan.
Dr. Lilian Thurman: Do you mean...God's master plan? Do you now...believe in God?
Donnie: I have the power to build a time machine.
Dr. Lilian Thurman: How is that possible? [Donnie starts sniffling] How is...time travel...possible?
