Poppy MooreEdit

  • I didn't start it, it wasn't my fault, and if this were America, I would sue.
  • Welcome to Malibu, biatch!
  • What is this place? Hogwarts?
  • I don't fit in with everybody else.


  • [Poppy has just walked into head girl, Harriet] There is an hierarchy in this school, teacher, prefects, scholars, dogs, vermin, Americans; Kate see to that she falls in line!


  • [Poppy and Harriet are fighting as Freddie comes by] Shouldn't you guys be in bikinis for that?


Kate: Get up. Wait for Mrs. Kingsley and the prefects.
Poppy: Screw them!
[Kiki and Kate raise Poppy from her seat and make her stand up]
Poppy: That is physical abuse! I'm calling my lawyer!
Kate: With what?

Harriet: Harriet, head-girl
Poppy: Mmh.
Harriet [takes Poppy's hand] You shake the head-girl's hand out of respect
Poppy: When the head-girl has earned my respect, then I will shake her hand!
Harriet: I'm sorry?
Poppy: Apology accepted.

Mrs. Kingsley: [Poppy knocks on the door] Who's there?
Poppy: [Poppy bursts into the room, annoyed] Jesus.
Mrs. Kingsley: Oh, we were always led to believe you had a beard and sandals. Now we'll have to change the stained glass window in our chapel.

Poppy: [Freddie refuses a stormy kiss] Oh, cards on the table! Are you gay?
Freddie: No, just English.

Harriet: Me thinks.
Charlotte and Jane: [Both] We think so, too.

Kate: [after looking at all of the bottles of water in Poppy's trunk] Erm... Why?
Poppy: What? I might get thirsty
Kate: You know in England we have this amazing thing, it's called a tap.

Kate: Sorry, Mrs. Kingsley we just got a little bit carried away.
Mrs. Kingsley: Well as I understand, Drippy was totally carried away by Mr. Nellis and Miss Rees-Withers after laying in a pool of her own vomit.
Drippy: Actually it was Kate's vomit Mrs Kingsley, I was just lying in it.

Poppy: It's nice to see you when I'm not half-naked or delirious!
Freddie: I wouldn't speak to soon... is it wrong of me to say that I´m just a little bit disappointed?

Harriet: [just had her help pour coffee water onto Poppy] Oh, sorry, just can't trust the help these days! Do you have a pass to be out now?
Poppy: Yea, yea I do, it's right here
[flips off Harriet offscreen]

Mr. Christopher: Oh my god, its Tom Cruise!
Drippy: Can you say that any louder, I need your help!
