"Sometimes it seems like we're all living in some kind of prison. And the crime is how much we hate ourselves. It's good to get really dressed up once in a while and admit the truth: that when you really look closely, people are so strange and so complicated that they're actually...beautiful. Possibly even me." - My So-Called Life

"When he's around, my whole body knows it. I'll keep talking and stuff, but my mind will have no idea what I'm saying. I keep wondering if there's a term for this." - My So-Called Life

"It's amazing the things you notice. Like the corner of his collar that was coming undone, like he was from a poor family and couldn't afford new shirts. That's all I could see, the whole world was that unraveled piece of fabric. It's such a lie that you should do what's in your heart. If we all did what was in our hearts, the world would come to a halt." - My So-Called Life

"Lists, notes, and gossip, is that what everything boils down to after a certain point? Like whatever we are, if we can even figure that out, doesn't matter? The only thing that matters is who and what other people think we are, and how they rank us?" - My So-Called Life

"Love is when you look into someone's eyes, and suddenly, you go all the way inside, to their soul... and you both know, instantly. I always imagined I would fall in love, nursing a blind soldier. Who was wounded in battle. Or maybe while rescuing someone in the middle of a blizzard, seconds before the avalanche hits. I thought, at least, by the age of fifteen, I would have a love life. But, I don't even have a 'like' life." - My So-Called Life

"I know in the past I've caused you pain and I'm sorry and I'll always be sorry until the day I die. I hate this paper in my hand because it isn't you. I even hate this letter 'cause it's not the whole truth because the whole truth is so much more than a letter can even say. If you wanna hate me, go ahead. If you wanna burn this letter, do it. You can burn the whole world down . . . you can tell me to go to hell . . . I'd go if you wanted me to and I'd send you a letter from there." - My So-Called Life

"You know how sometimes the last sentence you said, like, echoes in your brain? And it just keeps sounding stupider? And you have to say something else just to make it stop?" - My So-Called Life
