Thirteen (2003) Poster


Holly Hunter: Melanie Freeland



  • Melanie : [to Tracy]  I love you and your brother more than anything in the world. I would die for you, but I won't leave you alone right now.

  • Melanie : [to Tracy]  How do you explain $860 in your purse?

    Tracy : What do you expect me to say, Mom? We jacked it, okay? It's not like your broke ass ever has any money to give me. Mom, when Brady went to the halfway house, what happened to our phone, our cable? You didn't even know how to pay the bills. It's no wonder Dad didn't want to be with you! You didn't even finish high school!

    Melanie : We don't have extra stuff, but we're doing okay. You know we're doing okay. You don't have to steal.

    Tracy : Mom, you knew what was going on! You're not that dumb, are you?

    Melanie : [shouts]  I didn't know it went that far!

  • Tracy : Mom, I have to go to the bathroom now!

    Melanie : Can't you hold it a minute?

    Tracy : That's how you get a bladder infection, you child abuser.

    Melanie : That's dramatic.

  • Melanie : [When Evie walks on Melanie having a cigarette in her bedroom]  Don't ever start smoking.

    Evie : Is everything okay, Mel?

    Melanie : Yeah.


    Melanie : No. Evie, I'm sorry, but I think it's time for you to go home.

    Evie : I can't go home. Brooke had a convention in Bakersfield. She said she sent you an e-mail.

    Melanie : I guess I didn't check my E-mail.

    [laughs nervously] 

    Evie : I'm sorry, Mel. I hope it's okay that I'm here.

    Melanie : Well, I guess it's gonna have to be, isn't it?

    Evie : Her boyfriend hits me, Mel.

    [sits down on Melanie's bed and pulls her hair back to reveal a bruise on her neck] 

    Evie : He grabbed my throat and he threw me against his van.

    Melanie : [gasps softly]  Oh, Jesus.

    [sits down beside Evie on the bed] 

    Melanie : Where's your mother, baby?

    Evie : [sniffles]  She - she passed away.

    Melanie : I didn't have a mother when I was your age either. I know how hard it is. I do.

    [she and Evie hug each other] 

  • Brooke : We'll be moving up to Ojai so you won't be seeing Evie again. Ever. You're really cruel, Tracy. I mean, I'm sure you can be a sweet kid when you want to, but right now, you're a really bad influence. I mean, you cheat, you lie, you steal...

    Tracy : [shouting in disbelief]  Oh, my God! Are you kidding me? Where do you think I learned all this shit from?

    [walks off into the kitchen] 

    Melanie : Tracy was playing Barbies before she met Evie.

    [Melanie, Evie and Brooke follow Tracy into the kitchen] 

    Brooke : Did she teach you how to beat the crap out of her as well? I've seen the bruises.

    Tracy : What the hell did you tell her, Evie?

    Brooke : [turns to Evie]  Come here. What about this?

    [shows the scrape by Evie's hairline that Tracy accidentally made while the two girls were play-fighting] 

    Tracy : [shouts]  What the fuck? We were just goofing.

    Melanie : Tracy didn't hit her.

    Evie : [starting to cry]  Yes, she did.

    Tracy : I don't believe this! She hit me too!

    Brooke : [grabs Tracy's arm and struggles with her to pull back her sleeve]  And look at this, Mel.

    Tracy : Don't you dare! No! Please!

    Melanie : Get your hands off her.

    [Tracy starts to cry as the cuts on her arm are revealed when Brooke pulls down her sleeve] 

    Brooke : She cuts.

    [Melanie looks stunned and horrified at the cuts on Tracy's arm] 

    Tracy : [crying]  It's none of your business, you fucking Frankenstein!

    Brooke : Oh, no, this child is my business, you little cunt.

    Melanie : That's enough. You need to get out.

    Brooke : [to Evie]  Honey, come on.

    [she and Evie slowly start to leave the house] 

    Melanie : [yelling]  Get out!

    Evie : [crying]  Who would want to be in this shit hole anyway? It fucking stinks in here, Mel!

  • [after dying Cynthia's hair] 

    Melanie : If this gets you laid, you owe me double.

  • Melanie : [to Tracy]  What the hell is that?

    [Tracy doesn't answer her] 

    Melanie : I'm talking to you!

    Tracy : [whispers]  It's a belly-button ring.

    Melanie : Speak up. I can't hear you.

    Tracy : It's a belly button ring! How else can I say it? I don't speak no other languages! Oh. And do you want to know what that is?

    [sticks her tongue out] 

    Tracy : That is a tongue ring.

  • Melanie : I want you here with me. You're my heart. I'll make it right.

  • Melanie : [tearing up the floor in her kitchen]  Goddamn dollar-fifty-a-square-foot floor!

  • Melanie : [to Tracy]  Have you been drinking?

    Tracy : No!

    Mason : She's always fucking drinking!

    Brady : Oh, like you never have!

    Melanie : Hey, hey, hey. Come on. You guys!

    Brady : Hey, Kayla. What's going on?

    [Kayla starts crying]
