Dialogue[edit]

[at the store where Romy is working, she reconnects with Heather Mooney, but when Heather brings up that their batch reunion is coming up and she wouldn't come]
Romy: Wonder why we didn't get an invitation? I'm sure Michele would have told me if she got one.
Heather: Michele Weinberger?
Romy: Umhmm.
Heather: Do you live with Michele Weinberger?
Romy: Yeah.
Heather: I just figured she'd be married to Sandy by now.
Romy: Sandy Frink?
Heather: Yes, Sandy Frink! He could barely contain his erection every time she walked by! Why do you think he always carried around that huge notebook?
Romy: The Frink-a-zoid and Michele, I'm sure! Besides, didn't you have a thing for Sandy in high school?
Heather: I did not have a thing! I did not have a thing, I did not have a thing! I was very much in love with him! Very much in love and there's a difference! [to customer behind her] There's a difference! [to Romy] There's a difference! I have to go now!

Michele: To me, fashion is just like... everything. [looks at a customer looking into a mirror] By the way... Hi! That blouse looks great on you!
Irate Customer: [looking pleased] Thank you!
Michele: And see? I have this really believable way of telling people they look really good, even though I'm just, you know... [does masturbating gesture; Irate Customer looks embarrassed and leaves] I think she heard me.

Christie Masters Christensen: So, Mi-chele! What are you up to?
Michele: Oh, okay. Um, I invented Post-Its.
Christie: No offense, Michele, but how in the world did you think of Post-Its?
Michele: Uh...
[looks across the room at Romy talking to Billy Christensen]
Romy: And I thought of them completely by myself. I mean, all Michele did was say: "What about making them yellow?"
Michele: [turns to the A Group] Actually I invented a special kind of glue.
Christie: Oh really? Well then I'm sure you wouldn't mind giving us a detailed account of exactly how you concocted this miracle glue, would you?
Michele: No. Um, well, ordinarily when you make glue first you need to thermoset your resin, and then after it cools you have to mix in an epoxide, which is really just a fancy-schmancy name for any simple oxygenated adhesive, right? And then I thought maybe, just maybe, you could raise the viscosity by adding a complex glucose derivative during the emulsification process and it turns...out I was right.

[having been humiliated earlier by Lisa and the A-Group, Romy and Michele decide to come back as their real selves in flashy dresses]
Cheryl: [scoffs] I don't believe it!
Christie: What?
Cheryl: That!
Kelly: They're ba-aaack!
Christie: Nice outfits. Post-It's must be really lucrative!
Michele: [as they close the distance] Romy, are you sure you wanna do this?
Romy: Oh yeah, Michele. I am so sure! [when they finally confront the clique] What the hell is your problem, Christie? Why are you always such a nasty bitch? [people react] You get some kind of sick pleasure from torturing other people? I mean, yeah okay, so Michele and I did make up some lame story. We only did it because we wanted you to treat us like human beings, but you know what I finally realized? I don't care if you like us, 'cause we don't like you. You're a bad person with an ugly heart, and we don't give a flying fuck what you think! [everybody is stunned at them standing up to the A-Group. Cheryl and Kelly laugh sarcastically] Come on Michele.
Michele: Okay, and...yeah!
Christie: Unbelievable! They're as deluded about their lives as they are about those hideous clothes.
Lisa Luder: [comes from behind the clique] Actually, Christie. They've got nice lines. A fun, frisky use of color. All in all, I'd have to say they're really... [looks at Christie] not bad! [classmates react positively]
Christie: [dismisses positive reception] Well, we still think they're ridiculous. Don't we girls?
Lisa: [seeing the other two women keeping quiet and looking away] Why don't you just let them think for themselves for once?
Christie: You're just jealous, because unlike a certain ball-busting dried-up career woman, I might mention, we're all happily married!
Lisa: That's right, Christie...keep telling yourself that. [looks at Romy and Michele before walking off]

Toby: Since you never got around to it in high school, I was wondering if you would sign my yearbook. And please don't tell me to fuck off, because it really hurts my feelings.
Heather: [reacts at the revelation] I hurt your feelings?
Toby: Yeah, all the time.
Heather: Tremendous! That's tremendous! Go get your stupid yearbook, I would be happy to sign it!

[Sandy Frink has arrived by helicopter, and everybody is wide-eyed at his entrance in a three-piece suit and white-soled sneakers]
Heather Mooney: That's Sandy Frink? The hell was I thinking? [goes somewhere else]
Christie: [tries to greet Sandy] Sandy, hi! You look so rich. I mean, great. [Frink slightly smiles at her but moves on]
Sandy Frink: Michele. After all these years, you still take my breath away.
Michele: Thanks. So you must be, like, the most successful person in our entire graduating class.
Sandy: Well, I guess that depends on how you define "success." If, to you, success means having a house in Aspen. one in Acapulco, penthouse in New York, mansion in Malibu, 60-foot yacht, an eight-seat Windstar, a Bell Jet Ranger, a Bentley, a personal trainer, a full-time chef, a live-in masseuse, and a staff of 24, then, yeah... I guess I am successful. But no matter how much I accumulate... there's still one thing I just don't have.
Michele: [lost in his monologue] Your own country?
Sandy: I don't have you, Michele. Will you dance with me?
Michele: Only if Romy can dance with us.
Sandy: Sure. [they perform a dance rendition of Time After Time]

[Heather is attempting to light a cigarette, but when someone offers her a light, she sees it's the Cowboy]
Heather: Oh Jesus, Mary and Joseph, what do you want?
Cowboy: You were right, I was a brain-dead redneck asshole. Though I never screwed a sheep or my sister.
Heather: Why not, couldn't catch 'em?
Cowboy: Guess I deserve that. I was a jerk. I'm so miserable in high school, I don't think I spoke more than two words the entire time. Just couldn't breathe there, you know, plus I was a really bad stutterer. Listen do you, uh, want to go somewhere quiet? Somewhere we can talk?
Heather: [surprised at the invite] You...you want to talk to me? [the Cowboy nods] OK cowboy, I don't know what your trip is, but if this is some kind of a sick game.
Cowboy: What? No!
Heather: If you fuck with me, in any way, I will rip each and every appendage from your body, starting with your dick. Capice?
Cowboy: Look, I just wanted to talk.
Heather: OK what the hell... [they head off] What is your name?
Cowboy: Clarence.
Heather: Clarence, I like the name.
Cowboy: Thank you.
Heather: Pick up the pace.

Romy: I've been killing myself for eight days and I gained a pound.
Michele: That's impossible. Did you deduct 16 pounds for your shoes?
