My So-Called Life is one of the greatest tv shows ever made. Ever since I began watching it, it has captivated me. It's such a great teens show, so realistic and timeless. Everything on the show still happens today, all the issues they deal with, we still deal with, it's just that the fashion is out-dated. Too bad only 19 episodes of this show were made -_-; Anyways, since I love the show so much, I'm going to post my favourite quotes/lines.
"School is a battlefield for your heart."
"Cafeteria is the embarrassment capital of the world. It's like a prison movie."
"What I, like, dread is when people who know you in completely different ways end up in the same area. You have to develop this, like, combination you on the spot."
"What's amazing is when you can feel your life going somewhere, like your life just figured out how to get good, like, that second."
"Grownups like to tell you where they were when President Kennedy was shot, which they all know to the exact second. Which makes me almost jealous, like I should have something important enough to know where I was when it happened. But I don't yet. And in fact it was a better time then, and people knew what they were supposed to do and how to make the world better. Now nobody knows anything. We know who's popular, or that Social Studies is boring, or that Brian always has stomach trouble."
"It's weird how something has to happen sometimes to see how you actually feel about someone."
"When someone compliments your parents, there's like nothing to say. It's like a stun gun to your brain."
"You know how sometimes the last sentence you said, like, echoes in your brain? And it just keeps sounding stupider? And you have to say something else just to make it stop?"
"What's really horrible is being a witness while someone's parents order them around. It ruins the conversation."
"Sometimes it seems like we're all living in some kind of prison, and the crime is how much we all hate ourselves. It's good to get really dressed up once in a while and admit the truth -- that when you really look closely, people are so strange and so complicated that they're actually beautiful. Possibly even me."
"Sometimes someone says something really small and it just fits into this empty place in your heart."
"Love is when you look into someone's eyes and suddenly you go all the way inside, to their soul, and you both know instantly. I always imagined I'd fall in love nursing a blind soldier who was wounded in battle. Or maybe while rescuing someone in the middle of a blizzard, seconds before the avalanche hits. I thought at least by the age of 15 I'd have a love life, but I don't even have a like life."
"But there are sometimes in my life where being me, right now, where I am, is just like, enough."
"This life has been a test. If it had been an actual life, you would have received actual instructions on where to go and what to do."
"There are so many different ways to be connected to people. There are the people you feel this unspoken connection to, even though there's not even a word for it. There's the people who you've known forever who know you in this way that other people can't because they've seen you change. They've let you change."
"Seems like some people have to die young. Like it fits them or something."
"Walking into someone's house for the first time is like entering another country. Not that I've ever been to another country."
"Sometimes I think if my mother weren't so good at pretending to be happy, he'd be better at actually being happy."
"My mother's a behavioral psychologist, and my father's a Freudian psychiatrist, which basically means they fundamentally disagree on, like, everything."
"Her hair smelled incredible. Her hair smelled like this orange grove we passed when I was eight on my way to see my grandmother. But I guess that's just, like, her shampoo or whatever."
"So I tried to be invisible. It's surprisingly possible. You just sit in the back and keep quiet and let the boys shout out the answers, which they will, even if they're wrong. Boys are less afraid of being wrong."
"My whole life is waiting for something to happen."
"People tell you to be yourself...Like yourself is some defined thing."
"Hatred can become like food. It gives you this energy. You can, like, live off it."
"A person can have feelings for someone even if they're not like, THE person anymore."
I know in the past I've caused you pain, and I'm sorry. And I'll always be sorry til the day I die. And I hate this pen I'm holding, because I should be holding you. I hate this paper under my hand because it isn't you. I even hate this letter because it's not the whole truth. Because the whole truth is so much more than a letter can even say. If you wanna hate me, go ahead. If you wanna burn this letter, do it. You could burn the whole world down. You could tell me to go to hell. I'd go. If you wanted
me to. And I'd send you a letter from there.
