  • This exchange:

Wednesday: I don't want to be in the pageant.
Counselor Gary: Don't you want to help me realize my vision?
Wednesday: Your work is puerile and under-dramatized. You lack any sense of structure, character, and the Aristotelian unities.

  • Wednesday's epic 'We cannot break bread with you' speech at Camp Chippewa. Having been forced to watch Disney movies, and sing and dance, she retaliates by leading the geeks into a blood-soaked Humiliation Conga against the popular children and counselors, which ends with them barbecuing several of them. Kicked off by this:

Wednesday:You have taken the land which is rightfully ours. Years from now my people will be forced to live in mobile homes on reservations. Your people will wear cardigans, and drink highballs. We will sell our bracelets by the road sides, you will play golf, and enjoy hot hors d'oeuvres. My people will have pain and degradation. Your people will have stick shifts. The gods of my tribe have spoken. They have said, "Do not trust the Pilgrims, especially Sarah Miller." And for all these reasons I have decided to scalp you and burn your village to the ground.

    • The best part of the scene comes at the end when Wednesday (still in her costume) is looking around, pleased at all the chaos, then notices Amanda Buckman, who at this point has been tied to a stake, had an apple shoved in her mouth, and is screaming for help. She calmly walks towards Amanda, stops, and pulls something from her headdress. Amanda's eyes go wide... and Wednesday lights the match. As the match burns, Wednesday for the first time lets loose with her true smile. A smile worthy of her mother.
    • Before that, when they tried to break them with the videos. Joel sticks up for Pugsley. Sure it's funny because they don't want to watch positive movies. But the fact that the kid, who's allergic to everything is standing up for the brother of a girl he has a crush on is pretty cool.

Counselor Gary: Yes indeedy, that's the ticket. Bambi.
Counselor Becky: Lassie Come Home.
Counselor Gary: The Little Mermaid.
Wednesday: Stop it.
