View Quote Cineplex manager: What the hell is wrong with you?
Enid: What? I was just joking around with the customers. It's my schtick.
Cineplex manager: Well, lose it. And why aren't you pushing the larger sizes? Didn't you get training about upsizing?
Enid: Yeah, but I feel really weird. It's pretty sleazy.
Cineplex manager: It's not optional! [leaves her]
Enid: [rolls her eyes] Jesus.
[A customer comes up to the counter]
Customer: Hi. Can I get a medium 7 Up?
Enid: Medium? Why, sir, do you not know that for a mere 25 cents more, you could purchase a large beverage? And you know, I'm only telling you this because we're such good friends. Medium is really only for suckers who don't know the concept of value.
View Quote Customer: Do you serve beer or any alcohol?
Enid: I wish. Actually, you wish. After about five minutes of this movie, you're gonna wish you had ten beers.
View Quote Enid: [about Seymour's garage sale] It was so cute how he had his own little bags. I thought I was going to start crying.
Rebecca: Yeah, he should totally just kill himself. [looking through the classified ads in a newspaper] Oh, here's one. Oh, but you have to share with a "non-smoking feminist and her two cats."
Enid: I don't know. I kind of like him. He's the exact opposite of everything I really hate. In a way, he's such a clueless dork, he's almost kind of cool.
Rebecca: That guy is many things, but he's definitely not cool.
View Quote Enid: [coming out of their high school graduation ceremony] God, what a bunch of ****s.
Rebecca: God, I know. I thought that chipmunk face was never gonna shut up.
Enid: I know. I liked her so much better when she was an alcoholic crack addict. She gets in one car wreck and all of the sudden she's Little Miss Perfect and everyone loves her.
View Quote Enid: [spying on Seymour from across the diner] Oh, my God. He just ordered a giant glass of milk.
Josh: That's a vanilla milkshake.
View Quote Enid: Sometimes I think I'm going crazy from sexual frustration.
Rebecca: And you haven't heard of the miracle of masturbation?
View Quote Enid: You know what my number-one fantasy used to be?
Seymour: What?
Enid: I used to think about one day, just not telling anyone and going off to some random place. And I'd just... disappear. And they'd never see me again. Do you ever think about stuff like that?
Seymour: I guess I probably did when I was your age.
Enid: You know what we should do? We should just get in your car right now and just drive off. Just find some totally new place and start a whole new life. **** everybody.
Seymour: I'm, uh, I'm not in any good condition to drive.
Enid: I'm serious! I'm just so sick of everybody. Why can't I just do what I want?
Seymour: What do you want?
Enid: What do you want? [a pause. They look into each other's eyes] Don't you like me?
View Quote Garage sale woman: How much for this dress?
Rebecca: God, I can't believe you're selling that.
Enid: That's $500.
Garage sale woman: What?
Enid: 500.
Garage sale woman: You're crazy. It should be, like, $2.
Enid: I was wearing that when I lost my virginity.
Garage sale woman: Well, why do I care about that?
Enid: Well, why do you want it? I mean, it would look stupid on you anyway.
Garage sale woman: God! **** you! [tosses the dress back over the rack and walks off]
Rebecca: So, now are you gonna get a regular job?
View Quote John: [noticing Enid's green hair and leather jacket] Oh, my God. Didn't they tell you?
Enid: Tell me what?
John: Punk rock is over.
Enid: I know it's over, asshole, I'm not even—
John: You really want to **** up the system? Go to business school. That's what I'm gonna do. Get a job in some big corporation and, like, **** things up from the inside.
Enid: You know, I'm not even trying—
John: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Hey, do you have my money?
[Enid pulls a dollar bill out of her pocket, scrunches it up and throws it at John. It bounces off his face]
John: Oh! Oh, how punk!
Enid: You know that tape sucked, by the way?
John: Oh, I'm so sorry if it offended Jew.
Enid: Go die, asshole!
John: Get a job.
Enid: God, **** you!
Rebecca: Can we go now?
Enid: You know, it's not like I'm some modern punk, dickhead! It's obviously a 1977 original punk rock look, but I guess Johnny ****face over there is too stupid to realize it!
Rebecca: I didn't really get it either.
Enid: Everyone's too stupid!
View Quote John: Well, well, well. If it isn't Enid and Rebecca—the little Jewish girl and her Aryan friend.
Enid: You're late, asshole.
John: Fine, and how are you?
Enid: Did you bring the tape?
John: [shows her the videotape but pulls it away when she tries to take it] You never paid me for that tape of the lndian dance routine.
Enid: Yes, I did.
John: You Jews are so clever with money.
Enid: [snatches the tape off him] **** you! You stupid redneck hick.
View Quote Josh: [at Wowsville] Aren't there a million places like this?
Enid: No. This is the ultimate. It's, like, the Taj Mahal of fake '50s diners.
View Quote Maxine: It's really quite something to see you all grown-up like this, Enid. I'd love to know what you're doing now. I can't help but feel I had some small part in how you turned out. What are you studying? You were always such a smart little girl.
Enid: I'm taking a remedial high school art class for ****-ups and ****s.
View Quote Melorra: Oh, my God. You guys, I can't believe we made it!
Enid: [deadpan] Yeah. We graduated high school. How totally amazing.
View Quote Rebecca: [about Weird Al] I want to make love to him.
Enid: I'm gonna tell him you said that.
Weird Al: [shows up to serve them] So nice to see you again, ladies.
Enid: Hi, Weird Al. My friend here has—
Rebecca: Shut up!
Enid: She says she wants to—
Rebecca: [shuts Enid's mouth with her hand] Shut up!
View Quote Rebecca: [arriving at the graduation ball] Wow. This is so bad, it's almost good.
Enid: This is so bad, it's gone past good and back to bad again.
