Parenthood (1989) Poster


Martha Plimpton: Julie



  • Julie : He said that he loved me.

    Helen : Men say that. They all say that. Then they cum.

  • Julie : [door slams as Tod leaves after having a fight with Julie]  If he thinks I'm having his baby now, he's crazy!

    Helen : [shocked]  Baby?

    George Bowman : Your daughter's having a baby?

    Helen : [even more shocked]  A baby?

    George Bowman : You're going to be a grandma?

    Helen : [laughs incredulously]  No, no, no, no. I'm too young to be a grandmother. Grandmothers are old. They bake, and they sew, and they tell you stories about the Depression.


    Helen : I was at Woodstock, for Christ's sake! I peed in a field! I hung on to The Who's helicopter as it flew away!

    [gestures wildly] 

    George Bowman : I was at Woodstock.

    Helen : [shouts]  Oh yeah? I thought you looked familiar!

  • [Tod is struggling with Julie] 

    Tod : Julie, you belong with me!

    Helen : [hitting him]  Let go of her!

    Tod : You're my wife!

    Helen : I said-!


    Helen : His what?

    Julie : His wife. We got married a few days ago.

    Helen : [hitting her]  Are you out of your *mind*? Are you out of your *mind*?

  • Helen : [whimpers as she flips through the stack of sex photos of Julie and Tod] 

    [Julie enters the room and Helen holds up a picture] 

    Helen : I... I... I think this this one is my favorite.

    Julie : It was just for fun, Mom.

    Helen : Well, I'm glad to know it's not a job. That's that Tod, isn't it? There's one with his face.

    [as she looks closer at the photos] 

    Julie : Is that what bothers you? That I did those things? Or that I did those things with Tod?

    Helen : Gee whiz, Julie, so many things bother me about this, I don't know where to separate them.

    [holds up a different photo] 

    Helen : Oh! Whoo! Here's something for my wallet!

    Julie : Tod is very important to me.

    Helen : And we've got the photos to prove it!

    [as she holds up the sex photos again] 

    Julie : Mom...

    Helen : [looking again at the photos]  This is your room. You did these things right here? In my house?

    Julie : Well, I thought someone in this house ought to be having sex. I mean with something that doesn't require batteries.

  • Tod : [upon finding Julie at her own house with her mother]  Julie!

    Julie : Tod?

    Tod : I thought I'd find you here.

    Julie : What does that make you, Sherlock Holmes? I live here!

    Tod : You live with me.

    Julie : I wouldn't live with you if the world were flooded with piss and you lived in a tree.

  • Julie : I wouldn't live with you if the world were flooded with piss and you lived in a tree!

  • Julie : I can't do this! This is too intense!

    Helen : This is marriage!

  • Helen : I swear, Julie, if you walk out that door, don't you dare come back!

    Julie : Don't worry about it!

    [Garry enters] 

    Julie : Hey Garry.

    Garry : Hi.

    Julie : I'm moving out.

    Garry : Bye.

    [walks out of the room] 

    Helen : See? Now you've upset your brother!

  • Julie : I can't believe I trusted him...

    Helen : Well, what did you expect from a kid like that?

    Julie : Oh, Mom, back off. The last guy you dated stole our furniture.
