(RAM) My friends, my fellow conscripts, we have scored. I feel so much better.
(LANCE BRUMDER) My parole officer wants to give me a drug test... can I score some of your piss?
(VERONICA SAWYER) The cops? This is my life. Oh, my God. I'll have to send my s.a.t. scores to San Quentin instead of Stanford.
(BILL SAMPSON) Don't cry. Just score it as an incomplete forward pass.
(MAX FISCHER) Maybe I'm spending too much of my time starting up clubs and putting on plays. I should probably be trying harder to score chicks.
(FRITZ) My farting around days are over! From this day on I shall live every day as if it were my last! Yes! Yes! I must do it! No more the dreary boring classes, the dismal lectures, the sitting around bulls.ing with pretentious fat-assed hippies, no more reading the books, the spoutings of a bunch of old farts who think they know the whole damn score!
(PVT. JOE BOWERS) There was a time when reading wasn't just for fags. And neither was writing. People wrote books and movies. Movies with stories that made you care about whose ass it was and why it was farting. And I believe that time can come again!
(OLD MAN MCCOY) So, uh, you made the movie, and now you wanna make it again? (EDWARD D. WOOD, JR.) We shot 10 minutes of the movie, and now we're looking for completion funds.
(MICKEY) I wandered for a long time on the upper west side, it must have been hours. My feet hurt, my head was pounding, and I had to sit down. I went into a movie house. I didn't know what was playing or anything, I just needed a moment to gather my thoughts and be logical and put the world back into rational perspective... I'm watching these people up on the screen and I started getting hooked on the film. I started to feel, how can you even think of killing yourself, I mean isn't it so stupid. Look at all the people up there on the screen, they're real funny, and what if the worst is true. What if there is no God and you only go around once and that's it. Well, ya know, don't you wanna be part of the experience?
(BOBBY TAYLOR) I believe this movie. A dude could jump off a mountain and not hurt himself, cause he did brace himself. And knew something about the levels of gravitivity and polarity.
(JAM) It's a teenage girl walking along the side of the highway! I mean, they, they, they make scary movies that start out like that. (TRIP) Hey, but, but they make porno movies that start out like that too, man.
(SUSAN SARANDON) Oh, movies are important and they're dangerous because we're the keepers of the dreams. You go into a little dark room and become incredibly vulnerable; on one hand all your perspectives can be challenged... It can encourage you to be the protagonist in your own life. On the other hand it can completely misshape you.
