Angela Chase Always Says Awesome Shit

When I was a sophomore in high school, and My So-Called Life was on TV, I was way wrapped up in the whole Jordan Catalano romance thing. But it wasn't until I started watching the show again on DVD (the box set, which I highly recommend) that I've gotten really into Angela's voiceovers; they're wonderful. Like this: "Like cheerleaders...Can't people just cheer on their own? To themselves?" Or this: "When Rayanne Graff told me that my hair was holding me back, I had to listen. Because she wasn't just talking about my hair. She was talking about my life." And totally this one, from the clip above: "I cannot bring myself to eat a well balanced meal in front of my mother. It just means too much to her."

@J.D.Regent: Also, (random fact) she married a minor British Royal (he had a title and land somewhere but had moved out to LA) who played on my rugby club. She used to come out to Irish Pub nights with us. It was the only time I get star-shocked out here in LA.
