For some, 13 feels like it was just yesterday. For Jenna, it was.(taglines)


  • Okay, you can wipe the doe-eyed, Bambi-watching-her-mother-get-shot-and-strapped-to-the-back-of-the-van look from your face.


  • You don't always get the dream house, but you get awfully close, you know?
  • It doesn't matter what Lucy said. I stopped trusting her after she stole my PopRocks in the third grade.


[Repeated lines]
Matt: Arrivederci.
Jenna: Au revoir.

Mom: Just because you don't look like those girls in Poise magazine doesn't mean you're not beautiful in your own way.
Jenna: I don't wanna be beautiful in my own way. I wanna look like these people!
Mom: Oh, those aren't people, honey. Those are models.

Lucy: Can you get in the car?
Jenna: I can't get in the car, I don't get in the car with strangers.
Lucy: Please get in the car, we're gonna be late.
Jenna: I can't get in the car, I don't know you.
Lucy: Just get in the car.
Jenna: I don't get in the car with strangers!
Lucy: You're being a little paranoid.

Becky: I like your dress.
Jenna: That's because I have these incredible boobs to fill it out!

Lucy: Speaking of disasters, what is she doing here?
Jenna: Who?
Lucy:Sparkle's editor in chief, Trish Sackett. Twelve o'clock and headed our way.
Trish: Hi, girls. Our J. Lo issue is selling like hotcakes. How's yours doing?
Lucy: My God, Trish, are things so bad you had to come to our party to eat free food? Please, put some crab in your purse for later.
Trish: You might want to keep some of that biting wit for your magazine. Or you could change the name to something more appropriate...like Poison or Pitiful. Whatever's more pathetic.
Jenna: You know what? You are rude and mean and sloppy and frizzy. I don't like you at all.

Jenna: I love you, Matt. You're my best friend.
Matt: Jenna... I've always loved you.


  • For some, 13 feels like it was just yesterday. For Jenna, it was.
  • A comedy for the kid in all of us.
