They were three small time girls, with big time dreams. Now, fate is giving the Pussycats, the chance of a lifetime. (taglines)


Alexander: You know what? I still don't understand why you're here.
Alexandra: I'm here because I was in the comic book.
Alexander: What?
Alexandra: Nothing.

Josie: If I could go back in time and change everything back, I would!
Melody: That's really cool. If I could go back in time, I would want to meet Snoopy.

Carson Daly: If I wasn't a key player in this whole conspiracy to brainwash the youth of America with rock music, we could totally date!
Melody: Ew, I would never go out with you!

Valerie: Okay, who else thinks that Fiona's a freak?
Melody: Oh my God, I'm so glad you said that, because as soon as you said her name, I got the most awful sensation. Like this ice-cold chill creeping up my spine.
Valerie: [pause] Oh, sweetie, that's 'cause you're sitting on the O.
Melody: [stands, looks to see she has been sitting on the "O" in the ice sculpture of Fiona's name] Oh!

Josie: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And when the going gets tough...
Melody: The tough make lemonade!

Alexandra: [using a fake English accent] I used to summer on the continent. Fancy a snog?
Wyatt: Fancy a mint?

[Carson Daly is about to kill both Melody and Valerie on a mock-up of the TRL set]
Melody: I thought this was supposed to be "Total Request Live"!
Carson Daly: Actually, this is more like "Total Request DEAD"!
[Carson picks up a baseball bat and swings it towards Melody and Valerie]

Eugene Levy[edit]

Hello, I'm Eugene Levy. And yes, I'm an Actor. No, I said cappuccino. I'm here to talk to you about something very important. And no, it's not about me or my career. I'm here to talk about subliminal messages in rock and roll music. Or as it's simply known in some cultures, 'rock music'. You see, for years the government has been wisely coercing teenagers to buy products they normally wouldn't want, just to get their money. Fact! Kids don't have bills to pay. Fact! They don't pay taxes. But! They do babysit and hold minimum wage jobs that earn them wads of cash as substantial as, well, my body of work. But kids today aren't dumb. They're not gonna buy just anything. That's why the government has been planting small subliminal advertising suggestions in today's rock music. The results? We can now get these kids to buy just about anything. We can have them chasing a new trend every week. And that is good for the economy. And what's good for the economy... is good for the country. So God bless the United States Of America - the most ass-kickin' country... in the world!


  • Fiona: You can kiss my cellulite-free ass for all I've done for you!
  • Valerie: Wyatt, you messed with the wrong pussy!
  • Mr. Moviefone: Conform! Free will is overrated! Jump on the bandwagon! There is no such place as Area 51!
