  • Quotes

    • Narrator: And as Hayley set off hand-in-hand with her new beau... one question naturally came to mind.
      Ricky: What's he got that I don't?
      Narrator: And of course, there was only one answer. He had her. That night was almost like a fairy tale. A night filled with magic... and love... and princesses. And pumpkins. Maybe it was fitting. In a land of insecurity, where curly-haired kids wanted straight hair, and heavy kids wanted to lose weight... and skinny ones wanted to gain it, and everybody wanted to be somebody else... the one true beauty... was the girl who simply knew herself. And was happy... with what she knew.

    • Narrator: In high school, appearances are everything. The way you look. The way you wish you didn't look. Nobody is satisfied. Which is maybe why...throughout the halls and classrooms... we hear the one universal cry.
      Ricky: What's wrong with me?
      Narrator: Ricky Holsenbach. When it came to inferiority complexes, he had them all.
