  • Quotes (10)

    • Bianca: I'm just excited to know that you're capable of physical attraction. Now, maybe I won't have to suffer the burden of caring for you and your cats when you're old.

    • Bianca: You are such a bitch! Chastity: What did you say to me? Bianca: You heard me! You are a manipulative, conniving, mean little shrew of a person and I am sick of taking your crap! Can't you see that nobody likes you? (Chastity runs out of the room crying) Suhrob: (to Bianca): That was harsh.

    • (Kat is sitting on the stairs by herself, the old lady walks up) Kat: Look, I'm off duty. Fire's over. Old Lady: Oh, so I guess I don't have to show you what your boyfriend left for you. Kat: He's not my boyfriend. Old Lady: (points) Over there. Missy, lighten up - I know a lot of cat ladies who started out like you. (smiles and walks away while Kat goes to see what Patrick left her - her mom's vinyl albums) Bianca: (while Kat flips through her albums in disbelief that Patrick was thoughtful enough to bring them) I am so happy we can go home. This evacuation has been nothing but drama. (Walter appears behind them) Walter: The fire is out, the house is safe and no babies were born in the gym. We may all return to our lives. (he gestures to his daughters) come here, come here. Life is great (he kisses Bianca's forehead and puts an arm around each of them) Kat: Are you drunk? Walter: Only on life, my darling. And five hundred dollars worth of wine. Kat: I'm driving.

    • Kat: (finds Patrick sitting on a ledge on the roof of the school) Don't jump. Patrick: Oh, I don't have to, you're here now. Kat: Okay jump. Patrick: I'm only three stories up. All I'd do is break a leg. Kat: It'd still be worth it. Patrick: (points to fire burning in the distance) Come check this out. It's really beautiful. Kat: If you don't think about all the homes being destroyed. Patrick: (leans closer and points) Look over there. UGH! (pretends to be slipping off the edge. Kat cries out and reaches for him) Aah! Kat: Oh! (walks away from the ledge, Patrick follows) Patrick: See, you don't want me to jump. Kat: You're such a jerk. Patrick: Now, I can tell you what I wanted to tell you. Kat: Ooh, I'm on pins and needles. Let me guess...is it the same thing you wanted to tell the girl downstairs? Patrick: Oh, I like it when you're jealous. Kat: I'm not jealous, I'm appalled- there's a difference. Patrick: Look, I was going to tell her that she should stop stalking me. Kat: Hmm..big words from the guy who shows up unannounced in my bedroom window at eleven O'clock at night. That's way past visiting hours. Patrick: You talk a lot. (takes her head in his hands ands kisses her, they continue on for several moments) Kat: (pulls back, happy) Is that what you wanted to tell me? Patrick: Sure (smiles and leans in to kiss her again) Kat: (breaking away quicker this time) No, seriously. Patrick: Oh, seriously? Okay, I realized why I find you interesting. Kat: Hmm...do tell. Patrick: (cupping her face with one hand) You're different from other girls. You have a mind of your own. Kat: That must be a refreshing change for you. Patrick: It is, you're not all clingy and...needy. We can just make-out and it doesn't have to be this whole big thing. (leans in to kiss her but Kat pulls away) Kat: Right. (moves away) Right, because I'm a total slut. But I have a mind of my own. Patrick: No that's not what I meant. Kat: Well, what did you mean? Patrick: I meant you're not living some fairy-tale where I'm your prince charming. Kat: Trust me. No one would mistake you for prince charming. Prince Charles maybe. Patrick: Aah! And we were having such a nice time. Kat: Unbelievable! I'm worried about losing my home all of my stuff, every memory and you just want to hook up. Patrick: Why do you have to make everything so difficult? Kat: What can I say, I'm not easy. (Leaves the rooftop)

    • (Kat's handing out small bottles of water and spots Patrick coming down the hall again, the Old lady's suddenly right next to her) Old Lady: Go after him already. Seize the moment. Life is short, trust me - I know. Kat: You're old, I get it. (walks around her again) Old Lady: Ooh. (Bianca runs up to Kat's side) Bianca: Do you have keys to any of the classrooms? I NEED you to open one. Kat: Chastity needs more room for her ego? Bianca: Someone brought a family into our room and she's a bit territorial. Kat: Too bad. Tell Gangus Chastity that there's a fire going on and we all need to pull together. Bianca: Yeah, yeah, yeah- we are the world I get it. Can't you just open a door please? Kat: Not a chance. Bianca: Why can't you just help me once? Why does everything you do have to be about principles? Kat: Why does everything you do have to be about Chastity? It's pathetic. Bianca: Fine, I guess you'd rather be handing out water bottles to old ladies than making out with Patrick Verona but you're right I'm the one who's pathetic! (Kat watches Patrick go up to the rooftop)
