Favorite Uglies quotes?
« on: June 06, 2013, 10:33:10 AM »

I have made a list (SPOILER ALERT: MANY ARE FROM THE ENDS):

UGLIES

"This whole game is just designed to make us hate ourselves."
-Shay

"What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful."
-David

"We don't want to hurt you, but we will if we have to."
-every Special ever

"Your father's not pretty, David. He's dead."
-Maddy

"I'm Tally Youngblood. Make me pretty."

"Of course a hoverboard. What is it about those things and miscreants?"
-Dr. Cable

THE SMOKE LIVES

"I can't imagine anything worse than being required to have fun."
-Shay

"You're all brainwashed into believing you're ugly."
-David

"You can die ugly for all I care."
-Dr. Cable

Pretties

"You didn't change your mind. The operation did."
-Zane

"Humanity is a disease, a cancer on the body of the world."
-Dr. Cable

"I love you."
-Zane (to Tally)

"Hey, this is dehydrated food of the gods, okay?"
-Tally

"Pretty? Think again. I'm Tally Youngblood. My mind is very ugly. And I'm taking you car."

"I never would have left you alone in there, Tally."
-David

"You're just staying with [Zane] because he's pretty."
"No. it's because I love him."
-David and Tally

"Get your ugly face out of here!"
-Tally

"Just because it's human nature doesn't make it bad, Tally."
-Zane

"Face it, Tally-wa, you're Special."
-Shay/ strange dream dragon

Specials

"Sure, it's not fair. But that doesn't make it your fault, Tally."
-Shay

"But maybe I thought love might make a difference. Well, Tally-wa, did it make Zane special for you?"
-Shay

"What is it that you're not feeling, that you have to do that?"
-Zane

"Do I still challenge the gods? Yes, I still challenge them."
-Tally

"That's what's amazing about you, Tally - even Dr. Cable and her surgeons don't stand a chance against your ego."
-Shay

"Listen, Tally. When David saw how beautiful you were, he took on five million years of evolution. He saw past your imperfect skin and asymmetry and everything else our genes select against. And now you can't even look at me just because I'm shaking a little?"
-Zane

"It doesn't take much convincing to make someone believe they're better than everyone else."
-Shay

They couldn't see how maddening death was, how colossally pointless in every way.

"Nothing, David. You just took on five million years of evolution again."
-Tally

Freedom has a way of destroying things.
-Tally, in her manifesto

Extras

"I'm not trying to be mysterious. It's just working out that way."
-Aya

"You like me, don't you?"
"Was I being too subtle?"
-Aya and Frizz

"Fame is radically stupid, that's all. So I want to try something else."
-Aya

"Being crim can change the world."

"I guess sometimes you have to lie to find the truth."
-Frizz

"Governments have been taken down before, after all. By me."
-Tally

"I know what it's like to be manipulated, Aya-la. And I know what it's like to be in danger. While your city was building you mansions to live in, my friends and I have been protecting this planet. We've spilled more blood than you have flowing in your veins. So don't try to make me feel guilty!"
-Tally

"I'd rather be here with you than anywhere else."
-Frizz

"The last time I kissed someone, I wound up watching him die."
-Tally

Sorry about the extensive list. I've been wanting to get that out there...
Anyway, these are my top 10 out of each book, but I know there are tons more! Please feel free to post more Uglies quotes and favorites.
P.S. Has anyone else noticed that Tally announces "I'm Tally Youngblood" a lot? Like, "I'm Tally Youngblood. Make me pretty." and "Pretty? Think again. I'm Tally Youngblood." and I'm pretty sure she said that in Extras, too. If not, Frizz did: "That this is Tally Youngblood."

She was an Uglies fan XD. Her reaction was to squeal and start a deep conversation about the right way to take out a Special. We decided that direct impact from an M12 FAV would do it.

The application asked for a work of literature or media that had impacted the way I view the world, I used Uglies.
