Based on the rise and fall of socialite Edie Sedgwick, concentrating on her relationships with Andy Warhol and a folk singer.
Andy Warhol: I wonder if people are going to remember us? Edie Sedgwick: What, when we're dead? Andy Warhol: Yeah. Edie Sedgwick: Well I think people will talk about how you changed the world. Andy Warhol: I wonder what they'll say about you... in your obituary. I like that word. Edie Sedgwick: Nothing nice, I don't think. Andy Warhol: No no, come on. They'd say, "Edith Minturn Sedgwick: beautiful artist and actress... Edie Sedgwick: ...and all around loon. Andy Warhol: ...Remembered for setting the world on fire... Edie Sedgwick: ...and escaping the clutches of her terrifying family... Andy Warhol: ...Made friends with eeeeverybody, and anybody... Edie Sedgwick: ...creating chaos and uproar wherever she went. Divorced as many times as she married, she leaves only good wishes behind. [laughs] Edie Sedgwick: That's nice, isn't it?
Edie Sedgwick: And what would I have to do in one of your movies? Andy Warhol: Just be yourself. Edie Sedgwick: Well which one? James Townsend: You're going to be bankrupt soon. Edie Sedgwick: James, you take life too seriously. How could I possibly be bankrupt? My grandfather invented the elevator. James Townsend: Then you should be familiar with the concept of up and down.
Edie Sedgwick: I can't hate him!
Edie Sedgwick: I went to a party once, and there was a palm reader there and when she looked at my hand, she just froze. And I said to her "I know. My lifeline is broken. I know I won't live past thirty.
Edie Sedgwick: I can't take it anymore. I want to die Wanda: And why do you want to die? Edie Sedgwick: Because my credit's no good at Bonwit Teller and I just stole $30 worth of underwear at Bergdorfs and I think I might do it again [laughs]
Edie Sedgwick: You are so much fun. How come you don't spend more time with us? Richie Berlin: Because of my lips. Edie Sedgwick: Your lips? Richie Berlin: They have a hard time kissing Andy Warhol's ass.
Syd Pepperman: [regarding Edie] What do you want me to do? Billy Quinn: I dunno. See if she needs anything... [walks away] Billy Quinn: I'd help her if I could.
Edie Sedgwick: Don't be jealous, Andy. He's nothing like you.
Edie Sedgwick: Chuck's my best girlfriend
Billy Quinn: Lady, you don't know shit about shit.
Andy Warhol: I think I'll quit my painting and, just make Edie a big star.
Billy Quinn: How did a nice chick like you get mixed up in the whole acting racket? Edie Sedgwick: Breakfast at Tiffany's. You know, Audrey with her hair pulled back, and she's smoking through the black cigarette holder. Billy Quinn: You wanna live in a movie? Edie Sedgwick: I never saw the movie, just the poster. Billy Quinn: So you haven't read the book then? Edie Sedgwick: Well Audrey isn't in the book. Billy Quinn: The book is a bit different. It's about a working girl and a writer, an artist. You see the artist steals the girls stories and makes a fortune, and the girl doesn't get anything. Edie Sedgwick: Why do you have such a problem with Andy? Billy Quinn: Because of what he worships.
Andy Warhol: [to Edie] You're the boss, applesauce!
Edie Sedgwick: To me, New York was Jackson Pollock sipping vodka and dripping paint onto a raw canvas.
