“I think maybe it’s the things we don’t want to talk about that are the things people most want to hear.”
Julie Murphy, Dumplin'

“I've wasted a lot of time in my life. I've thought too much about what people will say or what they're gonna think. And sometimes it's over silly things like going to the grocery store or going to the post office. But there have been times when I really stopped myself from doing something special. All because I was scared someone might look at me and decide I wasn't good enough. But you don't have to bother with that nonsense. I wasted all that time so you don't have to.”
Julie Murphy, Dumplin'

“Then he left, and with him he took the sun, the moon, the stars, and anything inside of me that might have been good.”
Julie Murphy, Side Effects May Vary
