"Monday morning you're history"

Great Moments in Screen Bitchery #8, Winona Ryder & Kim Walker in Heathers (1989)

Heather: You stupid fuck
Veronica: You goddamn bitch
Heather: You were nothing before you met me. You were playing Barbies with Betty Finn. You were a bluebird. You were a brownie. You were a girl scout cookie.

I got you into a Remington party. What's my thanks? It's on the hallway carpet. I got paid in puke.
Veronica: Lick it up, baby. Lick it up.

Daniel Walters SO deserved a Best Screenplay nomination. And the category wasn't exactly shabby.

P.S. It's a holiday weekend so posting may be a touch draggy. Have fun at your parties, whenever they may begin.

I can't believe I still haven't seen this, considering how much I love Mean Girls. I know what's going onto my Blockbuster Online queue next.

BTW, this series is nothing but pure unfiltered awesome. Keep it up.

Fuck me gently with a chainsaw, jbaker475!

I think this screenplay provided the most girly catchphrases until Clueless came along.

I watched this movie for the millionth time again yesterday. Best movie ever! Best Quotes too! Why aren't movies like this anymore?!

Happy Canada Day, ya'll.

Veronica: Heather, it's just why can't we talk to different kinds of people?

Heather: Fuck me gently with a chainsaw! Do I look like Mother Theresa? If I did, I probably wouldn't mind talking to the geek squad.

(Geeks look over and spit out milk)

Geek: Heather #1 just looked right at me!

I watch this movie every couple of months like it's therapy for me.

What the bleep happened to all of them? The Writer: Sex and Death 101. The Lead Actor: Appeared in a Uwe Boll film. The Lead Actress: Battered, but finally repairing her critical and popular reputation. The Director: One of the main True Blood Directors. (Probably most repaired critically of all), but not anywhere close to a "pop resurgence", because not many note TV Directors. And as I've said many times: No serious directors were interested in using Christian Slater after that work?

"This isn't just a spoke in my menstrual cycle"...well, that's what I call a monologue!!!
