Well, I really do like the quotes of Shay dissing Tally.
"You didn't need an operation to make you shallow and full of yourself. You already were." - Shay
The others I can't remember right now, I haven't read in a while. But some of the best serious quotes:
"Right, you're so special no one can touch you. So special you have to cut yourself to feel anything." -Zane
"I'm sick of all the bad blood and mix-ups between us. From now on, we're gonna be best friends forever. - Shay
"We don't care about your little tricks, Tally. Except for what they reveal about you." - Dr. Cable

And then there were a few that made me laugh every time.
"But what could be more challenging than getting up here?"
"Getting up there." -Zane and Tally
And the dehydrated food one, the radical honesty one... not too many more that I can remember.

Hahaha, yeah i agree. Some of them were really funny, expecially in Pretties, though i can't remember...
Of course, all three of the endings were great, too.

I forget the exact quote, but I like the one Shay says referring to ''hyped up Barbie Dolls" in Uglies.

"Be careful, or next time we meet, it could get ugly."

-Tally

It goes something like that.. It's from the last chaper of Specials I was reading for good quotes.

There are so many epic quotes, I don't know where to begin.  They are a main reason why Uglies is so enjoyable to read again and again.

Yes, i totally agree!!

"Sometimes you have to lie to find the truth." - Frizz(who is my FAV character from this series)

I like the quotes from the pages before the next part.

like:

"remember, some of the most beautiful things in the world are the most useless."
" By plucking her petals you do not gather the beauty of the flower."

My favourite quotes are all from like, the same chapter:

'You just look like Tally to me.' -David

'From now on, no one rewires my mind but me.' -Tally

'So from now on, David and I are here to stand in your way.
You see, freedom has a way of destroying things.
' -Tally

oh yeah, and:

'Hey Ping-la'
