Juno quotes: The good, the great and the downright wonderful

Oh, it worked and it worked so well.

Here are 10 quotes which show Ellen Page nail it as a terrified teenager dealing with an impending arrival, interfering family members and judgemental school friends.

The good

On matters of past conquests

 “I still have your virginity.”

The great

On matters of adoption

"I mean, can’t we just, like, kick this old-school? Like, I have the baby, put it in a basket and send it your way, like Moses and the reeds"

Sigh, what a movie.
