Damsels in Distress (2011)
Analeigh Tipton: Lily
Heather : [about Lily's friend] " Zavier " with a " Z? "
Lily : No, I think it's with an "X."
Heather : No, I'm certain it's a "Z." " Zavier " Like " Zorro. " It's the same sound.
[Draws a "Z" in the air with her finger]
Heather : Zorro marked his name with a "Z."
Lily : It's an "X."
Heather : But Zorro's with a "Z." I t's the same.
Violet : Okay, let's see if we can figure this out. Used at the beginning of a name, " Z " and "X" have the same pronunciation.
Heather : But it's Zorro- with a "Z."
Violet : Actually there were two " Zorros. " One spelt his name with a " Z " and made a " Z " mark for Zorro , the other one spelled him name with an "X" and with his sword he'd make an "X" mark . What was really unfair was that, because he marked his name with an "X", everybody assumed he was illiterate, when actually he was spelling correctly
Lily : There's no logic to the algebra of love.
Fred Packenstacker : The algebra of love? That sounds like the title of some lame book.
Lily : It's a title but the book's not lame at all.
Fred Packenstacker : Love's algebra? I always thought it was more geometry.
Lily : Okay, the title's not good but the book is.
Fred Packenstacker : What's it say?
Lily : Well, that while we're all perverse in our romantic preferences, there's actually this logic, or algebra to our perversity. And it has something to do with how the species has evolved.
Fred Packenstacker : The survival of the species?
Lily : Yes, and whether it will continue to do so.
Violet : Rose has a very sensitive nose. Have you heard of "nasal shock syndrome?" Any harsh, acrid, or just "disgusting" odor sends Rose into nasal shock
Rose : This wasn't true nasal shock. Had it been, I'd've lost consciousness entirely.
Lily : Just from some b.o.?
Violet : "Just some b.o .?" Omigod, Lily, you must have a very high threshold for pain! That'll serve you well here at Seven Oaks!
