  • (Jake Gyllenhaal) "Smurfette doesn't f***."

They don't even have reproductive organs under those little white pants. That's what's so illogical, you know, about being a Smurf. What's the point of living -- if you don't have a dick?"

Drew Barrymore as Karen Pommeroy

  • (Drew Barrymore) ""There would be headlines in the papers.

It was as though this plan had been with him all his life, pondered through the seasons, now in his 15th year crystallized with the pain of puberty."

  • (Jazzie Mahannah) "They wanted to rob him."
  • (Drew Barrymore) "Joanie, if you had actually read the short story, which, at a whopping 13 pages, would have kept you up all night, you would know that the children find a great deal of money in the mattress, but they burn it."
  • (Drew Barrymore) "When the other rabbits hear of Fiver's vision, do they believe him?"
  • (Jake Gyllenhaal) "Why should we care?"
  • (Drew Barrymore) "Because the rabbits are us, Donnie."
  • (Jake Gyllenhaal) "Why should I mourn for a rabbit like it was human?"
  • (Drew Barrymore) "Are you saying that the death of one species is less tragic than another?"
  • (Jake Gyllenhaal) "Of course. The rabbit's not like us. It has no history books, no photographs, no knowledge of sorrow or regret. I mean, I'm sorry, Miss Pommeroy. Don't get me wrong. You know, I like rabbits and all. They're cute and they're horny. And if you're cute and you're horny, then you're probably happy that you don't know who you are or why you're even alive. You just wanna have sex as many times as possible before you die. I just don't see the point in crying over a dead rabbit, you know, who never even feared death to begin with."
  • (Drew Barrymore) "I don't think that you have a clue what it's like to communicate with these kids. And we are losing them to apathy, to this prescribed nonsense. They are slipping away."
