“Spanish, huh?" he said, glancing down at the scattered papers as he grabbed them. "Can you say anything interesting?"
"El tono de tu voz hace que queria estrangularme." I stood up and waited for him to hand over my papers.
"That sounds sexy," he said, getting to his feet and handing me the stack of Spanish work he'd swept together. "What's it mean?"
"The sound of your voice makes me want to strangle myself."
"Kinky.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend

Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“First:
"Wesley Rush doesn’t chase girls. They chase him.”

Then:
“You’re right. Wesley Rush doesn’t chase girls, and I’m not chasing you”

But in the end:
"Wesley Rush doesn’t chase girls, but I’m chasing you" ♥”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend

“Your sense of humor needs some work, then,' Wesley suggested. 'Most girls find my jokes charming.'

'Those girls must have IQs low enough to trip over.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
I think about you much more than any self-respecting man would like to admit, and I'm insanely jealous of Tucker - something I never thought I'd say. Moving on after you is impossible. No other girl can keep me on my toes the way you can. No one else makes me WANT to embarrass myself by writing sappy letters like this one.
Only you.

Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“I don't like him," I explained. "He annoys the hell out of me ninety-six percent of the time, and sometimes I'd like nothing better than to strangle him to death. But at the same time I... I want him to be happy. I think about him way more than I should, and I -"
"You love him.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“Thanks,” Toby said. “And if Wesley breaks your heart, I promise to . . . well, I would say I’d kick his ass, but we both
know that’s physically impossible.” He frowned down at his skinny arms. “So I’ll write him a strongly worded letter.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“Bianca, whore is just a cheap word people use to cut each other down," he said. His voice softer. "It makes them feel better about their own mistakes. Using words like that is easier than really looking into the situation. I promise you, you're not a whore."

I looked at him, into his warm gray eyes, and suddently understood what he was trying to tell me. The message hidden beneath the words.

You're not alone.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“You can lie to yourself if you want, but reality is going to catch up with you. I’ll be waiting when it does… whether you like it or not.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“I was the Duff. And that was a good thing. Because anyone who didn't feel like the Duff must not have friends. Every girl feels unattractive sometimes. Why had it taken me so long to figure that out? Why had I been stressing over that dumb word for so long when it was so simple? I should be proud to be the Duff. Proud to have great friends who, in their minds, were my Duffs.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“Just when I think you might have a soul, you say shit like that.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“I wanted to make sure you were fine...and that he was okay, too. You didn't, like, stab the boy, did you? I mean, I totally disapprove of murdering hotties, but if you need help burying the body, you know I'll bring the shovel.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
"...we’re all fucking Duffs.”
(Designated Ugly Fat Friend)
“I’m not the Duff,” Wesley said confidently.
“That’s because you don’t have friends.” (Bianca)
“Oh. Right.”

Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“Wesley Rush was the most disgusting womanizing playboy to ever darken the doorstep of Hamilton High… but he was kind of hot. Maybe if you could put him on mute… and cut off his hands… maybe—just maybe—he’d be tolerable then. Otherwise, he was a real piece of shit. Horn dog shit.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“He was sweet and charming and smart... but my feelings for Wesley were way beyond that. I'd skipped the crush kiddie pool and jumped right into the deep, shark-infested ocean of emotions. And, if you'll forgive the dramatic metaphor, I was a lousy swimmer.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“You're a disgusting, shallow, womanizing jackass, and I hope that soda stains your preppy little shirt." Just before I marched away, i looked over my shoulder and added, "And my name isn't Duffy. it's Bianca. we've been in the same homeroom since middle school, you selfabsorbed son of a bitch.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“I’m the wind beneath your wings”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend

“No rush. This time things were slow and earnest. This time I wasn't looking for an escape. This time it was about him. About me. About honesty and compassion and everything I'd never expected to find in Wesley Rush.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“Calling Vikki a slut or a whore was just like calling somebody the Duff. It was insulting and hurtful, and it was one of those titles that just fed off the inner fear every girl must have from time to time. Slut, bitch, prude, tease, ditz. They were all the same. Every girl felt like one of these sexist labels described her at some point.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“I kissed someone tonight."
"Good for you. Now go back to sleep."
"It was Wesley...Wesley Rush."
Casey shot straight up in bed. "Whoa!" She shook her head and rubbed the sleep from her wide hazel eyes. "Okay, now I'm awake.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“He wasn't perfect, or even remotely close, for that matter, but, hey, neither was I. We were both pretty fucked up. Somehow, though, that made everything more exciting. Yeah, it was sick and twisted, but that's reality, right? Escape is impossible, so why not embrace it?”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“Don’t lie to yourself because you think nit’s safer. Reality doesn’t work like that…”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“Wesley Rush doesn't date, he fucks - everyone, for that matter.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“Yeah, it was sick and twisted, but
that’s reality, right? Escape is impossible, so why not
embrace it?”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“I'm perfectly fine with being used. But I would like to know for what I'm being used.
Distraction
That much I gathered. What am I supposed to be distracting you from? There's a chance that if I knew, I could do my job more effectively.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“I shook my head. "Don’t bother making excuses," I said. "Don’t waste your time because, the fact is, I am the Duff. But so is everyone else in the world. We’re all fucking Duffs."
"I’m not the Duff," Wesley said confidently.
"That’s because you don’t have friends."
"Oh. Right.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“I mean, there is a reason its initials are VD. I bet you more people contract syphilis on Valentine's Day than on any other day of the year. What a cause for celebration.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
“The winter sky has already turned black, but I could still see Wesley's gray eyes in the darkness. They were exactly the color of the sky before a thunderstorm.”
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
