When Andy met Edie, life imitated art. tagline

Nobody is doing anything like you right now, and that itself is a sign of brilliance, don't you think?

  • [to Edie] You're the boss, applesauce!
  • I think I'll quit my painting and just make Edie a big star.
  • I went to a party once and there was a palm reader there. And when she looked at my hand, she just froze. And I said to her "I know. My lifeline is broken. I know I won't live past thirty."
  • To me, New York was Jackson Pollock sipping vodka and dripping paint onto a raw canvas.


  • Billy Quinn: Lady, you don't know shit about shit.


Andy Warhol: I wonder if people are going to remember us?
Edie Sedgwick: What, when we're dead?
Andy Warhol: Yeah.
Edie Sedgwick: Well, I think people will talk about how you changed the world.
Andy Warhol: I wonder what they'll say about you... in your obituary. I like that word.
Edie Sedgwick: Nothing nice, I don't think.
Andy Warhol: No, no, come on. They'd say, "Edith Minturn Sedgwick: beautiful artist and actress..."
Edie Sedgwick: "And all-around loon..."
Andy Warhol: "Remembered for setting the world on fire..."
Edie Sedgwick: "And escaping the clutches of her terrifying family..."
Andy Warhol: "Made friends with eeeeverybody, and anybody..."
Edie Sedgwick: "Creating chaos and uproar wherever she went. Divorced as many times as she married, she leaves only good wishes behind." [laughs] That's nice, isn't it?

Edie Sedgwick: And what would I have to do in one of your movies?
Andy Warhol: Just be yourself.
Edie Sedgwick: Well, which one?
James Townsend: You're going to be bankrupt soon.
Edie Sedgwick: James, you take life too seriously. How could I possibly be bankrupt? My grandfather invented the elevator.
James Townsend: Then you should be familiar with the concept of up and down.

Edie Sedgwick: I can't take it any more. I want to die.
Wanda: And why do you want to die?
Edie Sedgwick: Because my credit's no good at Bonwit Teller, and I just stole $30 worth of underwear at Bergdorfs, and I think I might do it again. [laughs]
