Angus (film) Quotes

Wesley Mann as Mr. Kessler

  • (Wesley Mann) "May I See it?"
  • (Charlie Talbert) "You're looking at it."
  • (Wesley Mann) "Is this a joke, Mr. Bethune?"

  • (Wesley Mann) "The Chaos theory."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "The Bethune Theory."
  • (Wesley Mann) "Your hypothesis?"
  • (Charlie Talbert) "When a small, abnormal element is forced into a larger normal system, the element will either be rejected or destroyed."
  • (Wesley Mann) "Obviously."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "But it doesn't have to be that way. If --"
  • (Wesley Mann) "If?"
  • (Charlie Talbert) "If the element is brave."
  • (Wesley Mann) "Brave?"
  • (Charlie Talbert) "If the element can hold out long enough and face the torment of the system until the system's energy is depleted. If the element can look the system in the eye and say 'I'm still here, asshole.' Then, the system will have to change, adapt, mutate. And if this happens, it will have proved my f***ing point."

Charlie Talbert as Angus

  • (Grandpa) "These ARE my teeth."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "I guess; you paid for 'em."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "I'm still here, asshole."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "My grandfather was as smart as they come -- when he was awake."
  • (Grandpa) "Superman isn't brave."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "Did you take your pills this morning?"
  • (Grandpa) "You don't understand. He's smart, handsome, even decent. But he's not brave. No, listen to me. Superman is indestructible, and you can't be brave if you're indestructible. It's people like you and your mother. People who are different, and can be crushed and know it. Yet they keep on going out there every time."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "My mother named me after my father, Angus; a cow's name, which didn't help matters much, because I was a big kid. My mother was in labor with me for two days, but it was my father who died during child birth. He had a heart attack waiting for her to deliver, but this wasn't really my problem. In fact, I perceived my family situation as relatively normal, until I began to collect expert opinion around kindergarten."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "I look like Moby Grape."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "I can't dance. My limbs are lethal weapons. Innocent people got hurt trying to teach me dance."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "I get this pain in my stomach whenever I see her."
  • (Chris Owen) "You get a boner in your stomach?"
  • (Charlie Talbert) "The dance ended. School closed for the holidays. Rick Sandford got suspended for his little prank. I got into Jefferson, but I didn't go. I said screw 'em. I finally knew what it felt like to be on top of the world. I had had my moment, and then I heard my grandfather's voice say to me, "Now go have another." Maybe I will. Who knows, maybe Melissa Lefevre actually likes me. All I know is I'm still here."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "You just don't know how it feels."
  • (Chris Owen) "I don't know how it feels? Do you think you're the only one who wakes up wishing they could be somebody else?"
  • (Charlie Talbert) "I'm still here, asshole. I'll always be here."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "You push me down and I'll get right back up again, and again, and again, and again and again."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "I could beat you right here, right now. But I don't want to be better than you, Rick. I don't want to be better than anybody. I want to be who I am : a fat kid, who's good at science, and fair at football. That's who I am. I can live with it. Why can't you?"
  • (James Van Der Beek) "Because it's not normal. You're not normal."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "And who is? You?"
  • (James Van Der Beek) "You bet your ass."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "And so what? to be normal, we all have to be like YOU? There are 400 people in this room that are nothing like you. Some of them are fat, some of them are skinny. Some of them are tall, some of them are short. Some of them have braces, some of them have birth marks, or scars, or frizzy hair, or ears that stick out."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "But most of them probably walk through these halls every day, never telling anybody the truth about what they really want, or need, or believe, because people like you, normal people like you, have them terrified of being who they are. I mean, if you're normal, what does that make them? So which is it, Rick? Are you normal? Or are you just one of us?"
  • (James Van Der Beek) "Whatever I am, it's something you're never gonna be."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "Thank God."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "I don't sweat. I rain."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "I'm still here, adenoid."
  • (Grandpa) "Don't mind what other people think."
  • (Charlie Talbert) "You don't know what other people think anyway. Your mind is shot."
  • (Grandpa) "Why does she talk to me like I'm a child?"
  • (Charlie Talbert) "Why does she talk to me like I'm an adult?"

Chris Owen as Troy

  • (Chris Owen) "Oh, man. That's what I call getting a slice in the ol' dick pie."
  • (Chris Owen) "Holy s***."
  • (Chris Owen) "Put it on a dead guy and bury it."

James Van Der Beek as Rick

  • (James Van Der Beek) "Isn't Angus a cow's name?"
  • (Charlie Talbert) "Moo."
  • (James Van Der Beek) "I'd lend you my shirt, but I'm afraid it might rip."
  • (Chris Owen) "That's because it's cheap -- Like your mother."

Kathy Bates as Meg Bethune
