It’s GHOST WORLD Day! Amazingly quotable, fabulously freak filled, cultural reference filled, teen angsty, bottle of awesome-sauce!
A Great Graphic Novel with a perfect Movie version, it’s almost hard to decide which is better. Since my last gif-filled posts from TANK GIRL are still being tumbled over and over, I decided to talk about another Must-See Movie for everyone, and I am serious, there is literally something for everyone here. Thora Birch, Scarlett Johansson, & Steve Buscemi make for the most brilliant cast.
Here are my 10 favorite quotes:
Rebecca: This is so bad it’s almost good.
Enid: This is so bad it’s gone past good and back to bad again.
Paul, the Fussy Guy - Record Collector: It has a enlarged centre hole and a hair-crack.
Seymour: But the crack is so tight it’s completely inaudible.
Paul, the Fussy Guy - Record Collector: But a tight hair-crack is just that - a crack. I don’t collect cracked records. I only pay premium on mint records. Seymour, you know that. Please.
[he walks away. Enid, who has been listening, goes up to Seymour]
Enid: So what was all that about enlarged holes and tight cracks?
Seymour: I can’t relate to 99% of humanity.
Enid: I think only stupid people have good relationships.
Seymour: That’s the spirit.
Rebecca: So, what do you do if you’re a Satanist anyway?
Enid: Sacrifice virgins and stuff.
Rebecca: Well, that lets us off the hook.
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’re you studying? You were always such a smart little girl.
Enid: I’m taking a remedial high school art class for fuck-ups and retards.
Enid: By the end of this summer, you’re gonna be up to your neck in pussy.
Sidewinder Boss: Hey! Hey! You! How many times I tell you? No shirt, no service! Get the hell out of my store! What do you think this is, Club Med?
Doug: It’s America, dude. Learn the rules.
Sidewinder Boss: Learn the rules? YOU learn the rules! We Greeks invented democracy!
Doug: You also invented homos.
Sidewinder Boss: Fuck you!
Doug: [with a mouthful of beef jerky] You wish. You gotta buy me dinner first!
Melorra: Oh my god, you guys, I can’t believe we made it!
Enid: [Deadpan] Yeah. We graduated high school. How totally amazing.
Rebecca: [serving a woman a coffee] Can I get you a bis…
Rude Coffee Customer: [curtly] No, I do not want a biscotti with that.
[she takes her coffee and leaves]
Enid: God! How can you stand all these assholes?
Rebecca: Some people are OK, but mostly I just feel like poisoning everybody.
Enid: Well, at the least the wheelchair guy is entertaining.
Rebecca: He doesn’t even need that wheelchair, he’s just totally lazy.
Enid: That rules!
Now go watch it! The Soundtrack Rocks TOO!
