Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson Edit

  • Different things can be sad... it's not all war!
  • People go by the names their parents give them, but they don't believe in God.
  • I found when it happened that I really like dry humping more.
  • I was on top! Who the fuck is on top their first time!
  • I hate California, I want to go to the east coast. I want to go where culture is like, New York, or Connecticut or New Hampshire.
  • The only thing exciting about 2002 is that it's a palindrome.

Marion McPherson Edit

  • Money is not life's report card. Being successful doesn't mean anything in and of itself. It just means that you're successful. But that doesn't mean that you're happy.

Larry McPherson Edit

  • You're not gonna get in a car with a guy that honks, are ya?
  • Hey, I'm like Keith Richards. I'm just happy to be anywhere.

Other Edit

  • Julie Steffans: Some people aren't built happy, you know.
  • Kyle Scheible: You're gonna have so much unspecial sex in your life.

Dialogue Edit

Sister Sarah Joan: You clearly love Sacramento.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: I do?
Sister Sarah Joan: You write about Sacramento so affectionately and with such care.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: I was just describing it.
Sister Sarah Joan: Well it comes across as love.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Sure, I guess I pay attention.
Sister Sarah Joan: Don't you think maybe they are the same thing? Love and attention?

Marion McPherson: I want you to be the very best version of yourself that you can be.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: What if this is the best version?

Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Just because something looks ugly doesn't mean that it's morally wrong.
Casey Kelly: You think dead children aren't morally wrong?
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: No. I'm just saying that, if you took up close pictures of my vagina while I was on my period, it would be disturbing but it doesn't make it wrong.
Casey Kelly: Excuse me?
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Listen, if your mother had had the abortion, we wouldn't have to sit through this stupid assembly!

Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Hey. [pause] I like your band. With Jonah Ruiz? L'Enfance Nue?
Kyle Scheible: [in French accent] L'Enfance Nue.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Uh. Well, I saw your Thanksgiving show. My name's Lady Bird.
Kyle Scheible: It's weird you shake hands.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Yeah. [pause] I'm friends with Jenna and she's always talking about how great your band is so I wanted to check it out.
Kyle Scheible: Yeah, Jenna's hella tight.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Yeah.
Kyle Scheible: Maybe I'll see you at the Deuce or something?
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Sure, see you at the Deuce.
Miguel McPherson: Hey, I'm not paying you to flirt.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: [exhales] I wasn't flirting.
Kyle Scheible: I wish you had been.

Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Why can't you say I look nice?
Marion McPherson: I thought you didn't even care what I think.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: I still want you to think I look good.
Marion McPherson: Okay, I'm sorry. I was telling you the truth, do you want me to lie?
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: No, I mean, I just, I wish that you liked me.
Marion McPherson: Of course I love you.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: But do you like me?

Julie Steffans: Miss Patty assigned you a role by the way, you just never showed up to claim it.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: What role ?
Julie Steffans: The Tempest.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: There is no role of the Tempest!
Julie Steffans: It is the titular role!
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: No! It's a made-up thing so we all can participate.
Julie Steffans: You can't do anything unless you're the center of attention, can you?
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Yeah, well you know, your mom's tits, they're fake! Totally fake!
Julie Steffans: She made one bad decision at 19!
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Two bad decisions!

Marion McPherson: If you're tired, we can sit down.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: I'm not tired.
Marion McPherson: Oh, okay. I just couldn't tell because you were dragging your feet. [Lady Bird rolls her eyes] Well, I just couldn't tell.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Why didn't you just say "pick up your feet"?
Marion McPherson: I didn't know if you were tired.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: You're being passive aggressive.
Marion McPherson: No, I wasn't.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: You are SO INFURIATING!
Marion McPherson: Please stop yelling.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: I'm not yelling.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: [Marion picks out a pink dress] Oh, it's perfect!
Marion McPherson: Do you love it?

Danny O'Neill: Your mom is crazy, I'm scared of her.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: She's not crazy. She just, you know, she has a big heart. She's very warm.
Danny O'Neill: I don't find your mother warm.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: You don't?
Danny O'Neill: No. No, she's warm, yeah but she's also kind of scary.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Well you can't be scary and warm.
Danny O'Neill: I think you can, your mom is.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: You're gay!
