  • show Description
  • "Alice, I Think" is about the misadventures of a maladjusted teenager who is starting high school after years of home schooling. Poor Alice is terribly out of touch with what is "in" and is in desperate need of some fashion sense and a social life. Rounding out Alice's world are her mother Diane, the family bread-winner, her stay-at-home dad John, and her little brother MacGregor. "Alice, I Think" will be premiering in the summer of 2006 on CTV and The Comedy Network Canada. It is produced by Slanted Wheel Entertainment and Omni Film Productions in association with CTV and The Comedy Network.moreless

    • John: I'm not a fool, Alice. I know what goes on in a young man's mind... at least I know what went on in my mind when I was Audrey's age... Alice: Aubrey. John: ...I had a constant.. uh, itch... that needed to be scratched, three, four times a day. I was diagnosed with a repetitive strain injury (he holds his hand up and moves his wrist) which just hasn't... (Alice looks horrified)

    • Bob: I remember my first love... Tanya was her name. She was a looker! Yeah, we used to call her "Tongue-ya" for the way she would lick my ear...

    • Alice: What is with the adults in my life? They all think Aubrey and I are going to have sex! (pause) Oh my god! What if Aubrey thinks so too? What if he thinks he's going to take me into the womanhood tent? Am I entering the sexual marketplace? (she looks at herself) I have nothing to sell!

    • Diane: Aubrey, the holes in your logic are big enough to drive a truck through. Aubrey: All I am saying is that I need meat to feel truly full. Diane: Oh, so you want to free the fishies, but slaughtering animals for your consumption is okay? Aubrey: Yes and no. I only eat the stupid animals. Diane: The ~stupid~ animals? Aubrey: Sure... chickens, turkeys, cows... I never eat pork; pigs are highly intelligent.

    • Bob: You're not ignoring customers, are you? Alice: Yes. Bob: Where's your boss? Alice: Oh, Mom's not here. Bob: (panicking) We're alone? Alice: Yes. Bob: I don't know how to run a book store! We need to regroup!

    • Alice: He's a shop-lifter! And he's getting away! Diane: You saw him steal a book? Alice: No. But he has a purse and he smells like patchouli. Diane: You just described all of our customers!

    • Diane: Okay, what button do you push if you want to clear a sale? (Alice pushes a random series of buttons) No... no... no... no... no... Alice, have you been listening to a word I've said? Alice: Why do we even need to use this stupid thing? You're the one that's always saying, "Technology is our enemy!" Diane: I was talking about bombs, Alice, not cash registers.

    • Alice: ...and I got this new job in my mom's bookstore. I start tomorrow. Bob: Wow! That's great! This is good for us! Alice: Yeah! I can buy this really incredible jacket I've wanted. Bob: No, Alice, this isn't just about the money, this is about responsibility! We're going to do a terrific job! Alice: You keep saying "we" and "us" like we're going to split my pay cheque. Bob: No, ethically that wouldn't be right. I'm talking mentally, Alice... we're a team!

    • Karen: Hey MacLeod. Who was that guy I saw you with the other night? Alice: Oh, he's just some guy that I've been seeing on and off from Prince George. Karen: Hottie. Alice: Yeah, he's not bad.

    • Customer #2, played by Susan Juby, the author of the Alice, I Think book series, tries to purchase a book, only to be told by Alice that they don't take credit cards; the book she's trying to purchase is Miss Smithers, one of the Alice, I Think books.

    • The song that the band plays at the memorial is "My Girl (Gone, Gone, Gone)" by Chilliwack (1981).

    • Finn: Yup, that's the jock strap worn by Ross Rebagliati on his '98 gold medal run. Customer: No it wasn't. Snowboarders don't wear jock straps. Finn: And I suppose you're the expert? Your loss, pal. The customer is Ross Rebagliati, who won the Olympic gold medal in the 1998 Men's Giant Slalom Snow-borading event in Nagano.

    • (upset that she's been left alone in the Bookworm) Alice: It was a tormentious situation, being abandoned by my own mother my first day on the job, like Moses in the bullrushes, or that little boy in that movie with Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep... the one where she doesn't have an accent. While Alice's mother ~did~ leave her alone, it wasn't quite like Moses, who was put in a basket and hidden in some bullrushes in order to save his life. The movie that Alice refers to is Kramer vs. Kramer (1979); the story is about a mother who leaves her husband and son, then returns and fights for custody of him. Meryl Streep is famous for assuming accents in her many roles; however, in this movie, she was playing an American and so had no accent.

    • Diane: I don't care if you're an intellectual and you attend our community college. If a customer wants to buy a thousand Danielle Steele books, you shut your mouth and you wrap them up! John: Danielle Steele's written a thousand books? Danielle Steele is a prolific romance author who has written over 60 books, which have sold over 500 million copies.

    • Finn says that the jockstrap on display in his used sportsgoods store belonged to snowboarder Ross Rebagliati, an actual Olympic gold medal winner. The customer who responds that snowboarders don't use jockstraps is played by Ross Rebagliati himself.

    • (Alice has just told Finn that her outfit is appropriate) Finn: Yeah, if you're Margaret Thatcher! Alice is wearing an outfit that an older woman would wear, not someone who is 16. Margaret Thatcher (1925 - ) was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990.

    • (giving advice to the band) Diane: I think you should all join in on the chorus. It'll give more oomph to the message of the lyrics. John: Great note, honey. Finn (coughing into his hand): Yoko! When Finn calls Diane "Yoko", he's referring to Yoko Ono, who is popularly 'credited' with being one of the factors that caused the Beatles to break up with her constant presence at their recording sessions.

    • (John is wearing his bathrobe and interviewing candle candidates) Mr. Polaski: Who are you supposed to be, Hugh Hefner's nephew or something? Hugh Hefner (1926 - ) is the founder of Playboy magazine, and famous for lounging at his mansion with beautiful women while wearing his silk robe.
