Paper Towns movie quotes follow one teen who heads out on an adventure to find his missing crush, only to find himself in the process. The mystery drama, which was based on the novel of the same name by John Green, was directed by Jake Schreier using a screenplay by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. Paper Towns opened in theaters on July 24, 2015.

In Paper Towns, Quentin (Nat Wolff) is an average, albeit boring, high school senior who has always had a crush on his eccentric and spontaneous neighbor Margo (Cara Delevingne). While Quentin and Margo are, for the most part strangers, when Margo shows up one night asking for his help in a revenge plot against her ex-boyfriend, he jumps at the chance to spend time with her. In their adventures, Quentin learns that perhaps breaking out of his comfort zone and acting more like Margo is the key to life, rather than the structured life plans he had for himself.

But the next morning when Margo goes missing, everyone looks to the last person she was with, Quentin, for answers. Along with his buddies Ben (Austin Abrams), Radar (Justice Smith) and Lacey (Halston Sage), Quentin follows clues that Margo left for him not only to try to find her, but try to find another purpose to his own life. What he finds, surprises everyone.

Paper Towns is sure to bring folks to theaters which are already showing other great films such as Pixels, Ant-Man, Mr. Holmes, and Minions.

Quentin: I can feel my heart beating out of my chest.
Margo: That is how you should feel your whole life.
Quentin: It's beautiful.
Margo: It's a paper town, paper houses and paper people. Everything's uglier up close.
Quentin: Not you

It's not often that Quentin feels the thrill that comes with breaking out of his comfort zone, but he surely feels that with Margo. But as she explains, things look good from a distance, but inside those paper houses, things get ugly.

I Like Boring

Quentin: Life for me was a well-oiled machine. Duke in the fall, kids by 30. Got it all mapped out. It sounds boring, for sure, but I like boring.
...
Radar: Does it really make sense to go our whole high school years never ever going to a party?
Quentin: We've been to plenty of parties.
Ben: No! No!
Radar: If there's a tuba there, it's not a party.

Quentin is pretty boring, something he's totally cool with. So when his buddies talk about going to a party, he's not exactly the first to raise his hand and want to go.
