- Annie Potts as kooky Iona steals every scene she's in:
Duckie: You know what an older women does for me?Iona: Changes your diapers?Duckie: Touché.
Kid: You missed my eye by an inch!Iona: *smugly* Half an inch.
- She shoots a kid trying to shoplift with a staple gun on the face:
- "I know I’m old enough to be his mother, but when the Duck laid that kiss on me last night, I swear my thighs just went up in flames! He must practice on melons or something!"
- Duckie is a fan favorite for a reason too:
Andie: You know you're talking like that just because I'm going out with Blaine.Duckie: His name is BLAINE?!?! Oh! That's a major appliance, that's not a name!!!Andie: What are you doing?Duckie: I had to use the powder room, so I figured I'd come in the back.Andie: I'm sure there are bathrooms all over the place!Duckie: I'm not nine, Andie, I know that.
- "This is a really volcanic ensemble you're wearing, it's really marvelous!"
- When bullies shove him into the girls' restroom: "We don't have none of this stuff in the boy's room! Wait a minute! We don't got none of this... we don't got doors on the stalls in the boy's room, we don't have, what is this? What's this? We don't have a candy machine in the boy's room!"
- And the infamous scene of Duckie dancing and lip syncing to "Try A Little Tenderness" while Andie and Iona just stare at him.
