south of nowhere quotes

When it comes down to having the choice of being right or protecting you, I’ll be wrong every single time. Because it’s just who I am.
—  Ashley Davies, South of Nowhere
AIDEN DENNISON
Do you have any idea what I’ve done for you today? Let’s see. I set up your plasma, I hooked up your surround sound, I moved you furniture - …
ASHLEY DAVIES
Okay, so you don’t wanna go, tonight.
AIDEN DENNISON
No, I don’t wanna go tonight or any other night.
ASHLEY DAVIES
What does that mean?
AIDEN DENNISON
I’m done, alright. I’m done being your handyman. I’m done being your back-up date. I’m done!
ASHLEY DAVIES
Where’s all this coming from?
AIDEN DENNISON
People got shot, Ashley? People got hurt, people died and you walked away from it and none if it, none of it, even touched you.
ASHLEY DAVIES
Of course it did.
AIDEN DENNISON
Look at you. You’re the same person you were before this happened. You didn’t even stay around long enough to see who’s standing and who wasn’t. [beat] Spencer may have forgiven you, but I haven’t. [heads for the door]
ASHLEY DAVIES
Oh, wait a minute! When Spencer dumped me, you came to me and you knew exactly who I was.
AIDEN DENNISON
And that makes it okay?
ASHLEY DAVIES
No, okay. I’m sorry. I suck. I’m a terrible person. What more do you want me to say?
AIDEN DENNISON
‘Sorry’ isn’t good enough.
ASHLEY DAVIES
I gotta go. [turns to leave]
AIDEN DENNISON
Yeah. Go. Leave. 'Cuz that’s what you do best. You leave, 'cuz you can’t deal. You’re gay when it’s convinient, you’re straight when you want me around.
ASHLEY DAVIES
It is so not even like that.
AIDEN DENNISON
It is like that! You know what? Wear your little dress and got to your stupid club. Have sex with Lily Allen or whoever else. I don’t care. But do me a favor. Next time you have an emergency, call 911. [leaves]
—  I used to have this saying when I was a kid wrapped around this character of South of Nowhere which was wrapped around this character ‘Aiden.’ It was the reflection of the hurt male figure due to lack of self knowledge and how this reflects to sexuality and consequences and I felt this speech summed up this idea. I however realise this applies to all people but I called it back then as an 'Aiden’ and I understand now.
