Today, let’s look at some of the classic quotes from Flipped: 💡

Juli Baker : I guess it’s something about his eyes or maybe his smile.

Richard Baker : And what about him?

Juli Baker : What?

Richard Baker : You have to look at the whole landscape.

Juli Baker : What does that mean?

Richard Baker : A painting is more than the sum of it’s parts. A cow by itself is just A cow. A meadow by itself is just grass, flowers. And the sun picking through the trees, is just a beam of light. But you put them all together and it can be magic.

Juli Baker : Bryce, you should come up here. It’s so beautiful.

Juli Baker : His hair smelled just like watermelon.

Chet Duncan : Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss; but every once in a while, you find someone who’s iridescent, and once you do, nothing will ever compare.

Juli Baker : Somehow the silence seemed to connect us in a way like words never could.

Chet Duncan : You know, Bryce… one’s character is set at an early age. I’d hate to see you swim out so far you can’t swim back.

Bryce Loski : Sir?

Chet Duncan : It’s about honesty, son. Sometimes a little discomfort in the beginning… can save a whole lot of pain down the road.
