Kids is a 1995 drama film centered on a day in the life of a group of sexually active teenagers in New York City and their unrestrained behavior towards sex and substance abuse (alcohol and other drugs) during the era of HIV in the mid-1990s.
- Virgins. I love 'em. No diseases, no loose as a goose pussy, no skank, no nothin'. Just pure pleasure.
- Condoms don't work. They either break, or they slip off, or they make your dick shrink. Nah, but you still gotta use em, yo. At least I did once.
- When you're young, not much matters. When you find something that you care about, then that's all you got. When you go to sleep at night you dream of pussy. When you wake up it's the same thing. It's there in your face. You can't escape it. Sometimes when you're young the only place to go is inside. That's just it - fucking is what I love. Take that away from me and I really got nothing.
- There's a difference between making love, having sex, and then fucking.
- [singing, while drunk in the bathroom] I'm Casper, the friendly ghost / The dopest ghost in town / All the bitches love me 'cause I'm fuckin' Casper / The dopest ghost around.
- Taxi driver: You look like the prom queen. I dated the prom queen when I was your age. She was the first girl I stuck my tongue in.
- Telly: Know what I want to do?
- Girl: You want to fuck me. But you can't fuck me...You know why? 'Cause I don't want no baby.
- Kim: So this is your new girl, huh?
- Telly: I hope so. For now.
- Kim: You like 'em kinda young, right? Babies?
- Telly: I like 'em new. Not like you.
- Casper: That girl was 12, you hit that shit up?
- Telly: Who am I? I'm the motherfuckin' virgin surgeon....Once it was on, we fucked for like a good half an hour. I had to keep taking it out and putting it back in. It hurt the first time. Didn't want to come too quick either...That bitch was so clean, dude...I think I'm getting addicted to this shit...It's all I think about now.
- Casper: Hey Telly, she suck your dick, man?
- Telly: A little bit, but I really didn't want her to...Having a virgin suck your dick, that's so basic, man. It's simple, it's easy. But like, if you deflower a girl, man, ah, man, you're the man! No one can ever do that again. You're the only one. No one has the power to do that again.
- Casper: Right. The way I see it. My outlook on the situation. It's like getting fame, you know what I'm saying? Say you was to die tomorrow right, fifty years from now all the virgins you ever fucked are gonna remember you. Right? They gonna tell their grandkids about that shit.
- Casper: How did she smell? Did her puss stink?
- Telly: Take a whiff.
- [Telly holds up his fingers and Casper smells them]
- Casper: Mmmmm. Butterscotch, yo. That's the best.
- Nurse: Jennie, you've tested positive for the HIV virus.
- Jennie: What?
- Nurse: The test isn't one hundred percent accurate. You should...
- Jennie: I tested positive?
- Nurse: I'm sorry.
- Jennie: But I only had sex with Telly...
- [the nurse is silent]
- Jennie: I just got tested to keep Ruby company...
- Jennie: What if you can't make yourself happy?
- Taxi driver: Then I don't know. You know what you do then you forget, you block it out... If you want to be happy don't think... if you stutter don't talk.
