The Edge of Seventeen movie quotes express the teenage angst in the coming of age comedy drama about an awkward high school girl. Kelly Fremon Craig wrote and directed the The Edge of Seventeen, which opened in theaters on November 18, 2016.
In The Edge of Seventeen movie quotes, viewers meet Nadine Byrd (Hailee Steinfeld), a 17-year-old girl who doesn't exactly fit in with the cool kids, but gets by with a little help from her best friend, Krista (Haley Lu Richardson), and her history teacher, Mr. Bruner (Woody Harrelson).
So when Krista starts sleeping with Nadine's older brother and cool kid, Darian (Blake Jenner), Nadine feels lost and alone. To make matters worse, Nadine accidentally sends her crush, Nick (Alexander Calvert), a very naughty message. Her mother, Mona (Kyra Sedgwick), means well, but is ill-equipped to deal with Nadine's angst. So Nadine is forced to deal with her struggles in ways she is not used to doing.
Nick, I Like You
Nadine: Nick, I like you. I want you to put your mouth on my tits. We can do it in the Petland stockroom. Oh my god, I can't send this. Oh, no no no no no, my god, no!
Mr. Bruner: This doesn't seem so bad. I want to be with you. I want you to put your mouth on my tits. I wanna feel you inside me. We can do it in the Petland stockroom.
Nadine: Oh my god, say something! Help me!
Mr. Bruner: You need to watch out for run-on sentences.
Nadine really likes Nick, in a hot birds and bees kind of way. But when she types him a lustful message then accidentally sends it, she's utterly mortified.
I'm Going to Kill Myself
Mr. Bruner: Busy
Nadine: I don't want to take up too much of your time but I'm going to kill myself. I just thought that an adult should know.
Mr. Bruner: Wow, actually, I was writing my own suicide note just now. "My 32 fleeting minutes of happiness during lunch, which has been eaten up again and again by the same especially badly dressed student and I thought I would rather have the dark nothingness."
When Nadine is feeling down, she visits Mr. Bruner during lunch to express herself. But as he shows in these The Edge of Seventeen movie quotes, he too has stress in his life.
Everyone Is as Miserable as I Am
Mona: Why don't you do what I do when I'm feeling down?
Mona: And I say to myself, "Everyone is as miserable as I am. They're just better at pretending."
Mona tries her best to cheer Nadine up when she's having a bad day in these The Edge of Seventeen movie quotes. But Mona simply isn't equipped to give this kind of supportive advice, at least not to Nadine's satisfaction.
Maybe Nobody Likes You
Nadine: The people out there have nothing in common with me.
Mr. Bruner: Maybe nobody likes you.
While Mr. Bruner is a friend and mentor to Nadine, as evidenced in these The Edge of Seventeen movie quotes, he can also sometimes be a bit of a smartass.
Two Types of People in the World
Nadine: There are two types of people in the world: The people who naturally excel in life and the people who hope all those people die in a big explosion. When I was 13, it was clear which side of the equation I was on but that's what best friends are for and I had Krista.
Nadine essentially explains the situation in the film and a bit about her character in the plot in this The Edge of Seventeen movie quote. She's not one of the cool kids, but at least she has a kick ass best friend, Krista.
Life's About Taking Risks
Mr. Bruner: Life's about taking risks. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there.
Mr. Bruner offers Nadine another nugget of life advice in this The Edge of Seventeen movie quote. He urges her to take risks and put herself out there citing that's what life is all about.
My Brother, Seriously?
Nadine: My brother, seriously?
Krista: I can't help how I feel.
Nadine: You turned into a completely different person.
When Nadine walks in on her bestie, Krista, in bed with her brother, Nadine flips out. Krista, unfortunately, has no apologies for her behavior, citing love.
Having a Problem Today
Mr. Bruner: Are you having a problem today, Nadine?
Nadine: Several. I don't really have any friends at the moment.
Almost as if he knew she was packed full of teenage angst, Mr. Bruner asks Nadine if she's dealing with any problems. Of course she is, and in this instance, it's a lack of friends.
