Girl, Interrupted (1999) (Movie)
I like this quote!I don't like this quote!
Susanna Kaysen: I'm ambivalent. In fact that's my new favorite word.
Dr. Sonia Wick: Do you know what that means, ambivalence?
Susanna Kaysen: I don't care.
Dr. Sonia Wick: If it's your favorite word, I would've thought you would...
Susanna Kaysen: It *means* I don't care. That's what it means.
Dr. Sonia Wick: On the contrary, Susanna. Ambivalence suggests strong feelings... in opposition. The prefix, as in "ambidextrous," means "both." The rest of it, in Latin, means "vigor." The word suggests that you are torn... between two opposing courses of action.
Susanna Kaysen: Will I stay or will I go?
Dr. Sonia Wick: Am I sane... or, am I crazy?
Susanna Kaysen: Those aren't courses of action.
Dr. Sonia Wick: They can be, dear - for some.
Susanna Kaysen: Well, then - it's the wrong word.
Dr. Sonia Wick: No. I think it's perfect.
