Maddie: My Dad can’t even look at me right now and my mom’s gonna freak when she finds out. She didn’t even like Colt in the first place and now I’m not even gonna be able to see him ever again. And the thing is, we weren’t even having sex, I know that’s what my dad thinks, but we weren’t, we weren’t gonna go that far, I swear.
Juliette: Baby, c'mere. I know you think that this is the end of the world, but I promise you it’s not, okay? You and I have a lot in common, we’re both talented, we both have big dreams, we both started really, really young and that’s a dangerous combination, y'know?
Maddie: So you think I should wait to have sex?
Juliette: I would be… bein’ a little bit of a hypocrite if I said it just like that, but what I will say is that, when the time comes, I just hope you do it for the right reasons.
Maddie: You’re gonna be an amazing Mom.

I don’t fit in.

That’s how I felt too. That’s how I always feel.

You know, that’s a big part of what makes you an artist. It’s a blessing but, it’s also a curse – ‘cause that is what we do: we feel, very deeply, all of the time. But, instead of sneaking out, or acting up, the best way for people like us deal with all them feelings, is to write them down.

This is so perfectly written and was perfectly performed.
