  • Quotes

    • The Advisor: Are you still thinking about becoming an R.A?
      Felicity: I don't think so.
      The Advisor: Really?
      Felicity: Yeah, I'm...um, kind of feeling like who am I to be giving anyone advice?
      The Advisor: You're someone who's been through it. (pause) So... see you next year?

    • Felicity: (to the advisor) I just hope this whole year wasn't for nothing. I hope I learned something. When I came here. I didn't know anyone. I mean, even the boy I followed to New York was a stranger, which,it turns out is why I followed him to New York. There were people here that I never met. Who,just became so important to me, it's like... I don't know... I guess they just felt like real friends. I bet you get this a lot, right? Kids at the end of their freshman year crying about their lives... about the way things turned out.

    • Felicity: (to Sally) Is it just me, or did this year go by faster than ever? I mean, it actually seems like time is speeding up. Lately, I have been getting up earlier everyday. I don't know why. I guess it's the excitement of the end of the year or something. I've only got a few days left.

    • Noel: Felicity and I are going to Berlin.
      Ben: Yeah, that's what Felicity says.

    • Felicity: Julie, I am so sorry.
      Julie: You know, I really don't care what the hell you are, you can be sorry or not, it doesn't matter to me. You're just a lying bitch.

    • Ben (to Felicity): How come everything has to have so much meaning? I mean, I've never met someone so desperate for meaning.

    • Felicity: I can't be having this conversation, because I am the devil.
      Ben: You keep saying you're the devil. I'll tell you what: you are not the devil.
      Felicity: What if I am? Then what?
      Ben: Then I'd still want you to come with me.
      Felicity: You would not!
      Ben: Yes I would.
      Felicity: First of all, you would not want me to go with you if I were the devil. And secondly, it's not just us. There are other people involved.
      Ben: Yeah, but I like you. I can't help it.

    • Felicity: You and I both know that if we were to drive across the country, it would never be platonic.
      Ben: So?

    • Felicity: I can't go with you, because that would make me the devil.

    • Ben: Where are you going?
      Felicity: I don't know. It's a flight reflex.

    • (Ben kisses Felicity. Felicity stares ahead in shock.)
      Ben: I've been wanting to do that for a long time.
