My Girl (1991)
Jamie Lee Curtis: Shelly DeVoto
Shelly : She won't come out. It's been a whole day. You have to do something, Harry.
Harry : The funeral's starting.
Shelly : Open your eyes, she's eleven years old! Her only friend in the world is dead.
Harry : I know that, but what do you want from me?
Shelly : Stop hiding, Harry! You run, Harry. When I first came here, the idea of working with dead people didn't exactly thrill me. When I saw a family that lived here, I thought, if I'm living without a family, at least I can work with one and maybe, once in a while, be invited in for supper.
Harry : Yeah... and when those suppers are disrupted because there's a car crash, or there's a fire, or a little boy steps on a beehive...
Shelly : I'm not asking you to stop caring for those people. But life isn't just death, Harry. Don't ignore the living, especially your daughter.
Shelly : They're dead. All they have are their looks.
Shelly : The first rule of eye makeup is that you can never wear enough blue eye shadow.
Shelly : You know, Vada, you have to watch what you eat at the carnival. I remember one summer I went with my two older cousins, and they both ate hot dogs, and the next day they had nephritis.
Vada : Nephritis is a kidney disease, you don't get it from eating hot dogs.
Shelly : Well I'm no doctor, all I know is the next morning when they woke up, they had real high temperatures and their faces got really fat.
