Charlie Bartlett Quotes

Anton Yelchin as Charlie Bartlett

  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "How's THAT working for you?"
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Some days are better than others."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Maybe you got slapped around one too many times for your lunch money on your way to the bus. Maybe your pop's gotta booze himself up every morning so he can plow roads with a sense of humor, then, when he gets home, you're just a distance third to sloppy joes and a bad sitcom. Maybe the cheerleaders call you a scumbag behind your back. Maybe it's 'cause the school's got you placed on the remedial track and your teachers are really good at making you feel like an idiot. Maybe it's none of these things. Maybe it's all of 'em."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Oh, shit, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to do that."
  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "Well -- you did it. It's done."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "I guess I should tell you about the first time I had my period. My daddy was driving me back from summer camp, and I turned to him and said, "Daddy, I think I'm sloughing." And he said, "That's nice, honey." And I realized that he had, like, NO IDEA what sloughing meant. So, I explained to him that it meant blood was gushing from my YOU-KNOW-WHERE. And he nearly wrecked the car trying to hand me a wad of fast food napkins; which is not something that you particularly want to stick up your hooch."
  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "Everybody needs to vent a little now and again, don't you figure? Some of us are privileged enough to vent to you in the boys' room stall and the rest of us have to settle for less conventional methods, like, I don't know, a bottle of booze and a handgun."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Ahh."
  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "God, I'm sorry. I'm-I'm not putting you on edge with my behavior, am I?"
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Watch Murphy Bivens' fists of fury pummel your best friends. Get 'em while they last. Bert Bannister hit in the face. Charlie Bartlett punched in the eye. Instant gratification or your money back."
  • (Dr. P. Sarossy) "I must say, of all the kids applying for a summer internship, you have quite a checkered history."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "I understand, and I'm sure you have a whole stack of people with perfect backgrounds and no, uh -- disciplinary record. Really, I'd do anything to work here."

  • (Anton Yelchin) "I'm just a stupid kid."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "My name is Charlie Bartlett. If there's one thing I want you guys to walk away with tonight -- uh, it's that you guys don't need me. I really mean it. You think I'm any less screwed up than you are? I get up every morning, and I look in the mirror, and I try and figure out just where I fit in. And I draw a complete blank. You guys are looking to me to tell you what to do? You need to stop listening to me. Stop listening to people telling you who you should be. And stop listening to the people who are telling you you're not good enough to do the things that you want to do. You guys have all the answers."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Oh, trust me, Doc, bringing psychiatric drugs and teenagers together is like opening a lemonade stand in the desert."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "For the first time, everybody likes me."
  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "There are more important things."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Look, I know. Everybody keeps saying that, but the thing IS is I'm 17 and popularity is pretty damn important to me."
  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "Charlie, there are more important things"
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Like what?"
  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "Like what you do with that popularity."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Well, duh, dude, this place sucks, but I just worry that one day we're gonna look back at high school and wish we'd done something different."
  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "Charlie, come on -- What are you doing this for?"
  • (Anton Yelchin) "I don't know. I guess -- I'm really happy here. For the first time, everybody likes me."
  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "There are more important things."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Look, I know. Everybody keeps saying that. But the thing is, I'm 17, and popularity is pretty damned important to me."
  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "Charlie, there are more important things."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Like what ?"
  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "Like what you do with that popularity."

  • (Principal Nathan Gardner) "Some days are better than others."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Do you wanna talk about it sometime?"
  • (Anton Yelchin) "I just think you're missing the big picture."
  • (Mark Rendall) "What big picture?"

  • (Mark Rendall) "Not life like we think, but yeah. Probably at least single-cell organisms."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Well, see, that's my whole point. I mean, you could've been born a single cell organism on the planet Zortex. In fact, given the odds, it's probably more likely, but you weren't. You were born a human being. And not just any human being in the history of human beings, but a human being that gets to be alive today, that gets to listen to all kinds of music, that gets to eat food from every culture, that gets to download porn off the internet. So, really, you have everything to live for."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Do you feel better?"
  • (Mark Rendall) "Not really."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Mom, they were just starting to appreciate me. You know, I was the guy that everyone wanted to meet."

  • (Tyler Hilton) "I take the train tracks home. You drive around in a limo."

  • (Anton Yelchin) "Yeah."
  • (Kat Dennings) "What's the deal with your father?"
  • (Anton Yelchin) "Does that really have to be the next question?"
  • (Kat Dennings) "Yes. The harder the question, the greater the reward."
  • (Anton Yelchin) "He's in prison. My Mom went into a pretty bad depression when he got arrested. So, uh, when he was out on bail he took me out for ice cream. He told me I had to take care of her. So, I promised him I would. And um, I've been taking care of her ever since."
  • (Kat Dennings) "So who takes care of you?"
