all great Just Friends quotes
Just Friends (2005)
While visiting his hometown during Christmas, a man comes face-to-face with his old high school crush whom he was best friends with — a woman whose rejection of him turned him into a ferocious womanizer.
Chris: No, you have fun being the girl who peaked in high school.
Samantha James: Get off me, God Boy!
Samantha James: [on voicemail] Hey Chris, it's Samantha. I talked to my sponsor and I owe you an apology.
Samantha James: It's Samantha. Call me!
Samantha James: It's Samantha!
Chris' Mom: [phone beeps] Hello Joyce? Joyce?
Chris: It's like the Michael Bolton starter kit.
Chris: So, how's the love life?
Jamie Palamino: Lame. Marty and I broke up a year ago.
Chris: Another jerk, huh?
Jamie Palamino: "Another jerk, huh?"
Chris: I'm just saying… you dated a lot of jerks in high school.
Jamie Palamino: So what about you? You in love with anyone besides yourself?
Chris: [Jamie slaps him] You slap like a cheerleader…
[Jamie then punches him in the face]
Bouncer: [throws a drunk Chris out of the bar] And stay out!
Bouncer: Always wanted to say that.
Chris: [writing in her yearbook] Dear Jamie, When we're together, I feel like we're not in high school, but in our own little Chris and Jamie world. Whether we're watching 'Party of Five' or practicing our cheers, I feel like I can just be myself. Jamie, we've been friends for a really long time, but I want to be more than that. Hoping to be your boyfriend… Sincerely, Chris Brander. BFF!
Ray: Where did you come up with this theory?
[referring to the ‘Friend Zone’ theory]
Chris: Some chick f'ed me up in high school bad.
Clark: How'd the big date go?
Chris: It was terrible. I went in for a kiss, but she wants a hug, okay? Then I get caught in a sort of kiss-hug limbo type thing. I don't know what that is, then I ended up *shaking* her entire body!
Clark: So you gave her a body shake?
Chris: Oh, God! I should've just kissed her! What am I doing?
Clark: It looks like you picked up right where you left off. You're back in the friend zone.
Clark: Chris Brander, ladies and gentleman!
Jamie Palamino: We need to talk about what you wrote. Is that really how you feel?
Chris: I don't know. Maybe. Why?
Jamie Palamino: Because that's the nicest thing anyone's ever written me.
Chris: It was?
Jamie Palamino: Yes. I love you Chris –
[goes to kiss him. Chris goes for her lips and she moves to his cheek]
like a brother!
Jamie Palamino: We're friends right?
Chris: For sure!
Chris: [thinking] This is it. You're finally going to have sex with Jamie Palamino. Oh God, look at that face. Look at that body. Why are you smiling like a fricken idiot? Go on. Make a move. MAKE A MOVE!
[takes a deep breath]
Jamie Palamino: What's on your mind?
Chris: [awkwardly] Bush. President Bush. The first family, really.
Jamie Palamino: [Jamie sighs and rolls over]
Chris: [thinking] Dude! You're killing me! This is the girl of your dreams! Ravish her! What if she doesn't want to be ravished? What if she wants to stay friends? Friends don't ravish each other. Friends watch New Years Rockin' Eve. I wonder who's hosting this year.
Jamie Palamino: Chris, can you put your feet on mine? They're freezing.
[thinking while cuddling up behind Jamie]
Chris: Hell yeah. Her feet aren't even cold. This is it. Don't even think about how weird tomorrow's going to be.
Jamie Palamino: Chris?
Chris: [thinking as he slowly rolls over off of her] Oh God. Oh, God. What are you doing? Where are you going?
Jamie Palamino: Is everything alright?
Chris: Oh, everything's fine. Yeah. You okay? Uh, you need another blanket or anything?
Jamie Palamino: No, I'm fine.
Chris: You're not going to make a move are you?
Chris: Good night, Jamie.
Jamie Palamino: Good night, Chris.
Chris: [thinking] You don't deserve a penis!
Chris' Mom: You don't need to show off to impress Jamie. You should just be yourself.
Chris' Mom: Be yourself! Be yourself. Be yourself.
[Chris starts to runs off]
Chris' Mom: Now come on, Mike and I are making snow angels!
Chris: I don't want to be myself.
Mike: Samantha James, it is an honor. I have your poster on my wall, but you are so much hotter in person.
Samantha James: [coyly] I know!
Chris: Look Jamie. I said a lot of crappy things the other night and I'm sorry about that. The truth is, I'm scared to be your friend, because I'm always going to want more. But then I got to thinking that I would rather have you in my life as a friend than not at all.
Chris: [Jamie opens her door] You know that's a lie too.
Jamie Palamino: [Comes outside and closes her door] Why are you back here?
Chris: Because I want to take you on a date. And I don't care if it's in the day, or at night, or whenever, as long as it's a real date. And I wanna tell you how beautiful I think you are. Inside and out. And I wanna have babies with you, and I wanna marry you, and I love you Jamie. I always have.
Chris: [Chris leans in and kisses her. Jamie accepts this for a second and pulls back] Sorry. Twenty years all at once, just blah!
[Jamie laughs. Chris leans in and kisses her again]
Chris: Mom! I need my skates to show off my talents!
Jamie Palamino: So, tell me about your job!
Chris: Oh my God, when you get past all the glamour, it's just crazy. I mean, you got Pink calling you, Good Charlotte, then it's Jay-Z's birthday party, and I am totally name dropping right now and I'd really like to stop. Mick Jagger. How about you?
Dusty: I mean, listen, I know it might sound a little corny, maybe even a little femme, but I find something so resplendent in the simplicity of Nicholas Sparks' writing, you know what I mean?
[Looks at Chris’s completely feminine Christmas sweater]
Dusty: Nice outfit, by the way. Rock and roll.
Mike: Dude I think she left you hanging.
Chris: It's probably just an important businees call. Get off the phone.
Mike: What, the bar ran out of curly fries?
Chris: Get off the phone!
[losing his temper]
Mike: Dude are you gonna boink Jamie or what?
Chris: Yes! Are you happy now?
Mike: Dude the Notebook is so gay.
Chris: GET OFF THE PHONE!
Mike: Homo, homo…
[Mike makes noises down the phone with his tongue]
Mike: [Chris kicks down the bathroom door]
Chris: So that's why she went with Dusty. She wants a sensitive guy… more like the old me. Well, if she wants Mr. Rogers, then I'm going to show her the biggest pussy she's ever seen.
