Igby Goes Down - The one-liners



Compiled by: Jack Foley

IGBY Goes Down is one of those movies that is so well-written, you could be quoting it for ages.

Here are some of the choice one-liners...

His creation was an act of animosity. Why shouldn't his life be? - Mimi (his mother), on Igby


I call her Mimi because 'Heinous One' is a bit cumbersome - Igby on Mimi


If heaven is such a wonderful place, then why is being crucified such a big fucking sacrifice? - Igby to a priest


I think if Gandhi had had to hang out with you for any prolonged period of time, he'd have ended up kicking the shit out of you - Oliver (Igby's brother), to Igby


I believe that certain people in life are meant to fall by the wayside to serve as warnings for the rest of us. Signposts along the way

You're a furious boy. Eventually, you won't be a boy and it will eat you up - Sookie (Igby's lover), to Igby


How many Vassar professors and intellectual theologians beget nymphomaniacal, psuedo-bohemian JAPs? Actually, a lot probably, right? - Igby, to Sookie


I love the fact that the captain of the Morality team, Mr All-American, invites his chick to the same party as his wife - Igby to Rachel


An artist creates art regardless of what form the canvas takes - Russel, to Igby


She's a dancer who doesn't dance, and her best friend is a painter that doesn't paint. It's kind of like a boho version of 'Island of Lost Toys' - Igby, on Rachel
