  • Quotes

    • Naomi: Some party.
      Emily: Yeah.
      Naomi: Eventful. I love you too.
      Emily: I know.

    • Emily: Katie, I can't stand this. I'm a person, I'm not you.
      Katie: I know.
      Emily: You have to understand Katie, I love you and I'll never really leave you, but I can't fix this. I like girls, no I like a girl. No, I love her, okay? (points to Naomi) I love her.

    • (Naomi and Katie scrap over Emily)
      Katie: She's my sister, you're just a slut.
      Naomi: Oh it takes one to know one, doesn't it?
      Katie: Oh go fuck yourself, Naomi.
      Naomi: You just needed to blab about JJ. You just loved doing it, didn't you Katie?
      Katie: She deserved it.
      Emily: What did I deserve, Katie?

    • Naomi: Why are so horrible?
      Katie: Because I love her more than you ever can. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got dresses to buy for a ball. You won't be there because if you are ...

    • Mr Fitch: You've been fighting with a girl? That's not very lady-like.
      Emily: No, dad, I've been making love to a girl. Okay? Everybody satisfied?

    • Emily: What do you do if someone you love lets you down? Really fucks you over.
      Thomas: You must try to stop loving them.
      Emily: And is that possible?
      Thomas: No. I don't think so.
      Emily: I'm gay Thomas.
      Thomas: It's fine. Shall I call a taxi because I don't think this bus is going to come soon and besides, my feet are extremely cold.

    • Naomi: I hope you're gonna finish the job and dump Freddie for her as well.
      Emily: Ugh, that's over. Katie knows it.
      Naomi: Yeah, it was an eventful barbeque. Adultery makes a party go with such a swing.
      Emily: It's not funny. Effy hurt her.
      Naomi: Like I said, eventful.

    • Emily: (quickly getting dressed) I'm not your fucking experiment! Where are my fucking... (growls in frustration) my fucking shoes! Oh fuck it! Keep them. (stops getting dressed and turns to face Naomi) I'm tired, so sick and tired of it. Still holding hands through a cat flap aren't we? Have fun in Cyprus.

    • (Emily and Naomi are in bed)
      Emily: (stroking Naomi's skin) Naomi? I wanna tell people.
      Naomi: That you're gay?
      Emily: I wanna tell people about us. (long pause) Come to the college ball with me, like we're together.
      Naomi: (sighs) I don't want to do that.

    • Katie: (twisting James' ear) What's in the box James!?
      James: (pained) It's a secret! (Katie twists his ear some more) Argh!
      Katie: I'm waiting!
      James: Okay, okay! (Katie lets go of his ear, he rubs it) Fannies! It's full of fannies!

    • Naomi: I think I'm going away for the summer.
      Emily: Oh.
      Naomi: Spain, Cyprus perhaps. By myself. Spend some time by myself, y'know? Do some thinking, by... (clears throat) myself.
      Emily: About what?
      Naomi: Let's just be friends... ok?
      Emily: We say that don't we?
      Naomi: Yeah... Have a good summmer.
      (Naomi turns and starts walking away)
      Emily: (shrugs) I'll miss you.
      (Naomi stops, takes deep breath, turns and ealks back to Emily quickly, pushes her aganist the locker and kisses her)
      Naomi: (in between kisses) I can't stand it, I can't.

    • Naomi: (checking Emily out) You should dress up more often.
      Emily: (laughs) They're Katie's.
      Naomi: (smiles) Yeah, you look nice! From the neck down.
