Only one quote in IMDb, more below:
The last time I checked, your twin sister Denise here is black, and she pulled a 1500 on the practice test.
- It was actually a 1540, Daddy.
Ah! You go, girl. That's my baby.
- Just doing what I do best... outshining Teddy's butt.
Hell, you get 400 points just for signing your name. You do know how to spell your name, don't you? T-H-E...
-What? You're wrong. Ain't no "H" in my name.
--She's spelling your legal name. "Theodore."
Well, there goes those 400 points.
-She like a Chinese boy at school.
Aren't you a little old to be a pop-star?
- Aren't you a little young to die?
Teddy, the issue is... you're clinically dumb.
Yep, but you also have dyscalculia.
-Discalcu... I don't even know how to pronounce that.
Basically, it's like dyslexia but with math.
You are just one big, beautiful mixed drink of learning disabilities.
-So I'm not dumb?
Boy, I was just playing when I said that earlier. No good teacher would ever call their students dumb.
-Okay. So, how do we fix it?
Let's talk solution. Well, there's no cure for what you have.
-Oh, my God. I got learning herpes?
Boy... There is no such thing as learning herpes.
-I'm blistering up. It's 'cause I'm trying to think.
Carrie, please, no more learning. My brain is at capacity. I want to be a dental hy-enist, not Elon Musk or Stephen Hawking.
Graduation speech P1 of 3.
I'm Teddy Walker, and... I'm a liar. For years, I've been pretending to be somebody else. Somebody that I'm not. And my reason for doing that is because I was ashamed. Ashamed that I didn't learn like my classmates. Ashamed that I couldn't take a test. Ashamed that I let my family and my friends down. I mean, I put so much time and energy into creating this fake version of Teddy Walker that I forgot the value that went into learning in school. I'm talking about honesty. I'm talking about accepting who you are. And it wasn't until I met my amazing night school classmates and... and a teacher that actually believed in me... that I was able to accept who I was.
Graduation speech P2 of 3.
As a loudmouth hustler with a boatload of learning disabilities. You know, for any of you who may have struggled to get it right the first time... that I am living proof that you can get it together on a second chance. I mean, I done had a lot of chances. Mm-hmm. 'Cause I messed up a lot. Mm-hmm. But I made it to the other side. I mean, hell, we all did. Ain't that right, night school crew? Hell yeah. We all got second chances. And to my dad. He was... he was tough on me. He said some things, but he said it out of love. Dad, I know you ain't never mean it when you used to say some of the things that you used to say. You know, you used to say stuff like, "I wish I ain't never had you." Or like, uh, "That was a waste of sperm." Oh! Oh. "Oh, God, if I could get that nut back." I remember you said that.
Graduation speech P3 of 3.
But all that stuff was said out of love to motivate me and push me. And you thought you didn't do good, but look at me now. Anything is possible! I did it! Hey, Dad. I did it, Dad!
Pops, those standardized tests are culturally biased. They want me to calculate the average number of manatees that are in Florida. What does that have to do with the African-American experience?
-You hear that, Gladys? We got Minister Louis Farrakhan at the table.
Teddy... you are a lot of things. A hustler. A liar. You're very short. Mad loud, too. Mmm. But you are not dumb.
