Ellen Page is a smart teenage girl. I quote her: Juno: Yeah, I’m a legend. You know, they call me the cautionary whale.
She is referring to her unplanned pregnancy. She wasn’t smart enough to avoid that. However, she does try to solve the problem on her own, initially. Here’s a movie quote: Juno: I’m calling to procure a hasty abortion?
But in the end she decides to give birth to her baby and have the child adopted. When her parents find out, Juno gets rebellious. Here’s a classic Juno quote: Vanessa: Your parents are probably wondering where you are. Juno: Nah. I mean I'm already pregnant so what other kind of shenanigans can I get into?
Finally, a childless couple is willing to adopt Juno’s baby. A meeting is arranged with Juno and her parents. Here are some quotes:
Vanessa: Hi! I'm Vanessa, you must be Juno. Mr. MacGuff: Hi. Vanessa.
Juno: It's, uh, Vanessa right? Is that--
Mac MacGuff: Thanks for having me and my irresponsible daughter over to your house.
In sum, this movie is about a young girl who lands into “premature adulthood” and is forced to make hard calls and decisions she was not ready to make. However, with the love and support of her family she is able to learn from the experience and eventually, finds her place in the world.
Vanessa: Your parents are probably wondering where you are. Juno : Nah... I mean, I'm already pregnant, so what other kind of shenanigans could I get into?
Paulie: Come on, let me carry your bag. Juno : Oh, what's another ten pounds?
Juno : If I could just have the thing and give it to you now, I totally would. But I'm guessing it looks, probably like a sea monkey right now, and I should let it get a little cuter.
Juno Quote: You should've gone to China, you know, 'cause I hear they give away babies like free iPods. You know, they pretty much just put them in those t-shirt guns and shoot them out at sporting events.
Rollo: That ain't no etch-a-sketch. This is one doodle that can't be un-did, homeskillet.
Juno : I could like, have this baby and give it to someone who like totally needs it. Leah: You should look in the PennySaver. Juno : They have ads for parents? Leah: Yeah! 'Desperately Seeking Spawn.'
Juno MacGuff: It all started with a chair.
Paulie : Can we make out now?
Juno: Paulie Bleeker is about as good as it gets when it comes to boyfriends.
Punk Receptionist: Free condom? They're boysenberry. Juno : No, thanks. I'm off sex right now.
Juno : What about Katrina De Voort? You could go out with her. Paulie : No, I don't like Katrina. She smells like soup, her whole house smells like soup!
Juno :This is not a food baby all right? I've taken like three pregnancy tests, and I am for shizz up the spout.
Juno MacGuff: Yeah, I'm a legend. You know, they call me the cautionary whale.
Juno MacGuff: Can't we just like kick this old school. You know, like I stick the baby in a basket, send it your way, like Moses and the reeds?
Juno MacGuff: As far as boyfriends go, Paulie Bleeker is totally boss. He is the cheese to my macaroni.
Leah: Maybe it's a food baby, did you have a big lunch? Juno : This is not a food baby, alright? I've taken like three pregnancy test and I am for shizz up the spout.
