DAYDREAM NATION 2010
Caroline Wexler: Okay, let’s just say that I have banged forty guys. What’s the problem? You’re just jealous because you’ve been, ah, brainwashed by puritanical assholes who think sex is a sin. But then again, your, ah, little gerbil-sized brain has been reprogrammed by the media to believe that sex is the be-all, end-all. So now you’re stuck, right? ‘Cause on the one hand you love to fuck, but afterwards you feel overwhelmed by guilt & you’re not sure why. Maybe it’s because sex is neither as good or as evil as you’ve built it up to be.
Jenny: [hurt pause] Shut up, slut!
Caroline Wexler: Jenny, seriously, listen to me! The highlight of your entire life is gonna be your yearbook photo. You are already nostalgic for shit that has not even happened yet ‘cause you have so precious little to look forward to. You’re gonna spend the first half of your life planning your wedding & you’re gonna spend the second half regretting it. & if I were you - & thank god I’m not , ‘cause you have terrible hair - I would stop & I would reconsider your whole value system, because everything you know is wrong.
The first time I kissed you. One kiss, I was totally hooked. Addicted to you. I could never love anyone the way I love you. I’d follow you across the universe.

I’m restless. Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again.
