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."
