Derry Girls Quote of the Day
Wednesday, June 29, 2022
Orla: Which one's ours?
Erin: She didn't send a photo. Her family probably don't even own a camera. She'll find Derry a bit overwhelming at first, just because of how advanced everything is here. All the cracker stuff we have.
Orla: They have some pretty cracker stuff where she comes from, too, Erin.
Erin: Oh, really? Like what? Disease? Poverty?
Orla: No. You can get this wee woman made of wood, right? You pull her apart and inside her there's an even wee-er wooden woman, and you pull the wee-er wooden woman apart...
Erin: Are you talking about Russian dolls?

Orla: Well, practice makes perfect, Aunt Mary. You know, that is why they are so cracker.
Erin: I'm sorry? Did you just call the Orange Order "cracker"?
Orla: I'm considering joining.
Erin: I don't think they accept Catholics, Orla. Or, you know, acknowledge our right to exist.

Sarah: Sure, didn't I predict this?
Erin: No, you didn't.
Sarah: I said this trip would place us in grave danger, Erin. Those were my very words.
Erin: This isn't grave danger.
Orla: Oh, look, that cop's pointing his gun at us.
Erin: I mean, it's not ideal, but this is more of a pickle. It's a pickle, isn't it, Grandad? It's just a pickle.

Emmett: [opens car boot] Was there something else, or...?
Mary: Yes. Yes, there was something else, actually.
Emmett: Look, I'm sure you have questions. I just don't really want to get into it all.
Mary: Yeah, well, we didn't really want you to get into our boot, but...
Joe: Maybe just leave the fella be. Sure, what's the odds?
Gerry: And what if they pull us over at the checkpoint, Joe? What if the army asks to search the car?
Joe: The Brits are flat out with thon parade! They'll not bother with the likes of us.
Emmett: That's a good point.
Mary: Stay out of it, you!
Joe: Right, in you go, son. [closes boot]

Sister Michael: Take a seat, please, ladies.
Erin: Where's Ms. De Brún?
Sister Michael: Gone. And she's not coming back.
Clare: I knew it. When I woke up this morning, I had a feeling something terrible was going to happen and also that essentially deep down, I'm quite an evil person.
Michelle: It's called a hangover, Clare. You'll be grand.

Clare: I cannot believe you're even discussing it.
Michelle: Let's live a little, for fuck's sake!
Clare: I want no part of this. And if you guys do decide to go through with it, then, I'm sorry, but any friendship we have is over.
[music: Rock The Boat by The Hues Corporation plays]
Clare: Rock The Boat! It's Rock The Boat!
Michelle: Happy fucking days!
Michelle: Bagsy the front! Bagsy the front!
