Best Quotes from The O.C. - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

Best Quotes from The O.C.

February 22, 2007 by  

The OC Series Finale

I would pay big money for a book that included all the best O.C. quotes. Each episode was filled with hysterical chit chat that had me laughing out loud. I’m not even going to pretend that I scratched the surface with the quotes below, but I figured maybe you could share a few of your favorite quotes and we can remember the witty banter and hip one liners together.

“We’re having a very Britney Christmas, Mother.”
– Kaitlin, describing her family by using 2006’s favorite shorthand for white trash.

“I love shopping, tanning and celebrity gossip. Always have, always will.”
– Summer, getting to the heart of the true Summer.

“Men to me are what chardonnay is to you. One sip and I’m upside down on a chandelier.”

– Julie, explaining to Kirsten why she’s swearing off men. And reminding Kirsten that she’s a boozehound.

“Few grunts. The occasional shrug.”
– Sandy, predicting how much chatter the Cohens will get out of Ryan at dinner.

“You’re taking all that? You only own, like, a wifebeater and two hoodies.”
– Seth, expressing surprise that Ryan has packed such a full bag for an overnight trip.

“Wow! Well, aren’t you a regular Veronica Mars? Way to solve this week’s mystery!”
– Marissa, criticizing Summer’s nosiness while referencing a wildly popular teen show.

“So what? I kinda like her, you know? I don’t care that she married my grandpa for money or had sex with Luke. I think she’s got moxie.”
– Seth, dismissing Summer’s concerns about Julie so he can get back to making out.

“The Siegfrieds donated a pool and a field house last year and their son only smoked pot. Our daughter shot someone. We have to at least give them a hundred grand.”
– Julie, responding to Jimmy’s offer to give Harbor two, maybe three thousand dollars.

“Ryan and Marissa – separate? Both great people that I love. But together? Disaster.”
– Summer, trying to convince Seth not to play matchmaker.

“Look, I experimented when I was your age, albeit it involved a little Motley Crue and a lot of Jaeger.”
– Julie, trying to tell Marissa her lesbianism is just a phase.

“Alex and Marissa? No longer welcome in the Red States.”
– Seth, informing Ryan that their exes are now dating each other.

“It’s a tale as old as time. Boy meets girl, boy likes girl, boy finds out girl is surrogate mom’s illegitimate step-mother.”
– Seth, trying to help Ryan with his relationship quandary.

“If my sense of the cultural Zeitgeist is accurate – and I believe it is – this is the year Chrismukkah sweeps the nation.”
– Seth, preparing Ryan and Kirsten for the onslaught of Chrismukkah.

“Well! Guess who’ll be staying in tonight? Carson Daly and a ball dropping! There’s two images that should never be said in the same sentence.”
– Seth, mocking Ryan’s inability to speak about love.

“Chino? Eww.”
– Summer, confirming her suspected anti-Chino bias.

…and of course, the quote that started it all

Welcome to the O.C., bitch. This is how it’s done in Orange County.”
– Luke, after pummeling Ryan on the beach.

…got more to add?  I’d love it!!

    Ryan: Sometimes I think you talk just to make sounds.
    Seth: Well, sometimes I do.

    Seth: In fact, having you around to defend me, I’ve gotten kind of soft. Without anybody picking on me, there’s been no need for the Seth Cohen retaliatory zinger.

    Hey, Seth, did you know that Ryan did musicals?
    Seth: Wow. That’s extremely minty of you. I didn’t even know they had musicals in Chino. Or dancing….or laughter.

    Sandy: Just because you’re leaving, doesn’t mean I’m letting you go. (Sandy, to Ryan)

  2. Matt on February 22nd, 2007 2:30 pm

    Seth: “I was like a fish flopping around on dry land; I was Nemo, and I just wanted to go home”.
    (Describing his first time with Summer).

    Summer: “Cohen kneed me in the hip”.
    Marissa: “Why’d he do that?”
    Summer: “I don’t know, he must have read it in the Kamasutra”.
    (Describing their second attempt)

    (Summer, Marissa, Seth, and Ryan are trapped in the mall; Summer slips on a hockey mask)
    Summer: “You know what that means?”
    Ryan: “You’re going to kill us all with a chainsaw?”

    Anna: “You don’t know how strange it is to find another person who likes comic books, and sailing, AND Death Cab”.
    Sandy: “Death Cab’s a band right?”

    Julie: “I thought I’d make some bagels, if the Cohen’s can do it so can we”.

    Lance: “I thought I’d drop by and give you something.”
    Julie: “Last time you gave me something, I was drinking cranberry juice for a week.”
    (Julie trying to fend off her past life)

    Sandy: “I can only think of two reasons; either she’s run out of money, or she’s run out of money”.
    Seth: “3 letter word for hilarious; Dad”.
    (While doing a crossword; Sandy describes Kirsten’s sister Haley’s reasons for coming to Newport)

    I know there’s much more, but that’s all I got for now.

    Julie: Well, I was easy to love back then. I was beautiful and much nicer.
    Jimmy: Jules, come on, you’re still beautiful. And we both know you were never nice.

    Seth: What about the Ryan and Seth go to Europe money, my man? Get back in there- we could get Vespas!

    Seth: He enjoys sunset walks, punching people and not smiling.

    Ryan: You realize we’re both screwed.
    Seth: Dude, I’m wearing a wife beater.

    Seth: So when you lost your virginity, I was playing Magic the Gathering.
    Ryan: You still play Magic.
    Seth: Yeah, but not as much.

    Ryan: I didn’t tell her anything. I think the black turtle neck in August tipped her off.
    Seth: Okay, I was going for stealth, and also it’s slimming.

    Ryan: I’m just gonna sit here and brood, silently.

    Seth: Hey Dad, did you hear? Ryan’s funny now.

    Summer: I was being sarcastic.
    Marissa: So was I.
    Summer: Which we never were before Cohen showed up and introduced us to irony. Jackass.

    …and we’re just scratching the surface!
