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.

Kudos and immense thanks to Johanna for this monologue, much appreciation and my everlasting gratitude go to her.
