My So-Called Life
created by Winnie Holzman
Angela: Why don't you just admit it, okay?
Patty: Admit what?
Angela: That I'm ugly, okay?
Patty: What? How can you think--
Angela: By looking in the mirror, okay? By looking at you, the way you look at me. By the way you instruct me on how to wash my face so I don't get zits. Like you have to fix me, like you're ashamed of me. You expect me to be beautiful...'cause you're beautiful. Well, I'm sorry. I'm not. I'm just not.
