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.

[they laugh]


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.

Seymour: Jesus!


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!
