... you can learn from:
Pink Flamingos (1972)
Sandy Sandstone: Well what am I supposed to do now, that's what I'd like to know.
Connie Marble: You can eat shit as far as I'm concerned, Miss Sandstone, or eat anything you like, or do anything you like, just don't assume that I want to know your troubles. Now if you wouldn't mind, I'm a busy woman with a full day's work ahead of me. Please remove yourself from my office!
Sandy Sandstone: You're a real CUNT, do you know that? A real fucking CUNT! How can you be so shitty to people? How can you STAND yourself?
Connie Marble: I guess there's just two kinds of people, Miss Sandstone: MY kind of people, and assholes. It's rather obvious which category you fit into. Have a nice day.
Y'all know I love John Waters, but I don't actually re-watch Pink Flamingos all that often because even for me, it can be a bit much. My go-to for a good John Waters time is and always will be Female Trouble, utter fuckin' perfection. That said I did actually just re-watch Flamingos a few weeks ago and realized I should watch it far more often than I do -- for every singing asshole and shitty mouth there's about a thousand zingers tossed off by Divine & Mink Stole worth their weight in gold-plated plastic lawn furniture.
Anyway a very happy 73rd birthday to Mink today! She was supposed to be the guest of honor at the annual birthday party John Waters throws for himself back in April but that got canned, pushed until next year, so let's just stick our thumbs up our butts til then.
