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 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: 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: 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.
Andy Warhol: I think I'll quit my painting and, just make Edie a big star.
Billy Quinn: Lady, you don't know shit about shit.
Andy Warhol: [to Edie] You're the boss, applesauce!
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.
Edie Sedgwick: To me, New York was Jackson Pollock sipping vodka and dripping paint onto a raw canvas.
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.
Billy Quinn: I sing about what I see.
Edie Sedgwick: Don't be jealous, Andy. He's nothing like you.
Edie Sedgwick: Chuck's my best girlfriend
