Wil Wheaton as Gordie

  • (Wil Wheaton) "Is it loaded?"
  • (River Phoenix) "s*** no. What do you think I am?"

  • (River Phoenix) "They won't let me."
  • (Wil Wheaton) "What do you mean?"
  • (River Phoenix) "It's what everyone thinks of my family in this town. It's what they think of me. I'm just one of those low-life Chambers kids."
  • (Wil Wheaton) "That's not true."
  • (River Phoenix) "Oh wait, it is. No one even asked me if I took the milk money that time. I just got a three day vacation."
  • (Wil Wheaton) "Did you take it?"
  • (River Phoenix) "Yeah, I took it. I mean, you knew I took it. Teddy knew I took it. Everyone knew I took it. Even Vern knew it, I think. But maybe I was sorry and I tried to give it back."
  • (Wil Wheaton) "You tried to give it back?"
  • (River Phoenix) "Maybe. Just maybe. And maybe I took it to Old Lady Simmons and told her, and the money was all there. But I still got a three day vacation because it never showed up. And maybe the next week, Old Lady Simmons had this new suit on when she came to school."
  • (Wil Wheaton) "Yeah, yeah. It was brown and it had dots on it."
  • (River Phoenix) "Yeah. So let's just say that I stole the milk money, but Old Lady Simmons stole it back from me. Just say that I told this story. Me, Chris Chambers. Kid brother to Eyeball Chambers. Do you think that anyone would've believed it?"
  • (Wil Wheaton) "No."
  • (River Phoenix) "And do you think that that bitch would have dared try something like that if it had been one of those douchebags from up on the view, if they had taken the money?"
  • (Wil Wheaton) "No way."
  • (River Phoenix) "Hell no. But with me? -- I'm sure she had her eye on that skirt for a long time. Anyway, she saw her chance, and she took it. I was the stupid one for even trying to give it back."
  • (River Phoenix) "I just never thought a teacher -- Oh, who gives a f*** anyway? I just wish -- that I could go some place -- where nobody knows me. I guess I'm just a p*****, huh?"
  • (Wil Wheaton) "No way. No way."
  • (Wil Wheaton) "-- the main guy of the story is a fat kid that nobody likes named Davie Hogan."
  • (Jerry O'Connell) "Like Charlie Hogan's brother. If he had one."
  • (River Phoenix) "Good Vern. Go on, Gordie."
  • (Wil Wheaton) "Well this kid is our age but he's fat. Real fat. He weighs close to one-eighty. But you know, it's not his fault. It's his glands."
  • (Jerry O'Connell) "Oh yeah, my cousin's like that, sincerely. She weighs over three hundred pounds. Supposed to be Hyboid Gland or something. Well, I don't know about any Hyboid Glands, but what a blimp. No s***. She looks like a Thanksgiving turkey. And you know this one time --"

  • (Wil Wheaton) "Oh, gee. Thanks, Dad."
  • (River Phoenix) "Wish the hell I was your dad. You wouldn't be goin' around talkin' about takin' these stupid shop courses if I was. It's like God gave you something, man, all those stories you can make up. And He said, "This is what we got for ya, kid. Try not to lose it." Kids lose everything unless there's someone there to look out for them. And if your parents are too f***ed up to do it, then maybe I should."

At school, they put a sticker on his back that says "Wide-Load". And they rank him out and beat him up whenever they get a chance. But one day, he gets an idea; a greatest revenge idea, a kid ever had."

  • (Corey Feldman) "Goofy's a dog. He's definitely a dog."

  • (Corey Feldman) "What are you, crazy? That's 5 miles down the river, you go 5 miles down the river you gotta walk 5 miles back. That could take 'til dark. We go across here we can get to the same place in 10 minutes."
  • (Jerry O'Connell) "Yeah, but if a train comes there's nowhere else to go."
  • (Corey Feldman) "No there isn't, we just jump."
  • (River Phoenix) "Teddy, it's 100 feet."
  • (Jerry O'Connell) "Yeah, Teddy."

Bossman Bob Cormier took one look at Bill Travis and barfed on Principal Wiggins, who barfed on the lumberjack that was sitting next to him. Mayor Grundy barfed on his wife's tits. But when the smell hit the crowd, that's when Lardass' plan really started to work. Girlfriends barfed on boyfriends. Kids barfed on their parents. A fat lady barfed in her purse. The Donnelley twins barfed on each other, and the Women's Auxiliary barfed all over the Benevolent Order of Antelopes. And Lardass just sat back and enjoyed what he'd created-a complete and total barf-o-rama."
  • (River Phoenix) "Yeah."
