Girl, Interrupted (film) Quotes

Brittany Murphy as Daisy

  • (Brittany Murphy) "You're just jealous, Lisa -- because I got better -- because I was released -- because I have a chance -- at a life."
  • (Robin Reck) "They didn't release you 'cause you're better, Daisy, they just gave up. You call this a life, hmm? Taking Daddy's money, buying your dollies and your knick-knacks -- and eatin' his fuckin' chicken, fattening up like a prize fuckin' heifer? You changed the scenery, but not the fucking situation; and the warden makes house calls. And everybody knows. Everybody knows. That he fucks you. What they don't know -- is that you like it. Hmm? You like it."
  • (Brittany Murphy) "Which do you like better? Taking a dump alone or with Valerie watching?"
  • (Winona Ryder) "Alone."

Everyone would hug her and kiss her and love her and no one would ever know what was in that big ol' head of hers, you know?"
  • (Winona Ryder) "Declared healthy and sent back into the world. My final diagnosis: a recovered borderline. What that means, I still don't know. Was I ever crazy? Maybe. Or maybe life is."

  • (Winona Ryder) "Seventeen Burling Game."
  • (Unnamed) "Alright --"
  • (Winona Ryder) "Crazy isn't being broken, or swallowing a dark secret. It's you, or me, amplified. If you ever told a lie, and enjoyed it. If you ever wished you could be a child, forever. They were not perfect, but they were my friends. And by the 70s, most of them were out, living lives. Some I've seen. Some never again. But there isn't a day my heart doesn't find them."

  • (Robin Reck) "That's everybody."
  • (Winona Ryder) "I mean, what kind of sex isn't casual?"

  • (Winona Ryder) "It means I don't care. That's what it means."
  • (Dr. Wick) "On the contrary, Susanna. Ambivalence suggests strong feelings -- in opposition. The prefix, as in "ambidextrous," means "both." The rest of it, in Latin, means "vigor." The word suggests that you are torn -- between two opposing courses of action."

The choice of your life. How much will you indulge in your flaws? What are your flaws? Are they flaws? -- If you embrace them, will you commit yourself to hospital? -- for life? Big questions, big decisions. Not surprising you profess carelessness about them."
