Memorable Monologue: The Babysitters Club

"Hi, I'm Kristy. I'm the founding member of the baby-sitters club. I don't mean to brag or anything but we're famous, here in Stoneybrook. Everybody knows us. That's because everybody uses us. You call one number, and get connected with seven incredible baby-sitters. This is Stacey, she's our club treasurer. She's good at keeping track of money, she's also good at spending it. Stace was raised in New York City. Sometimes she thinks she still lives there. That's Mary-Ann. When we were little, we used to live next door to each other. She's kind of quiet, kind of serious. Why are we friends? They say opposites attract. Dawn's Mary-Ann's step-sister. She grew up in California. Dawn really cares about the environment. Her biggest regret is that she wasn't born on earth day. Claudia's an amazing artist. She's REALLY talented. I mean, do you know anybody who can take a fork and a hammer and turn it into... that? And of course Mallory, she's a junior member of the club. She started her novel when she turned eleven and is determined to finish it by the time she's eleven and a half. Jesse's Mallory's best friend and another junior member of the club. Jesse's motto is 'Why walks when you can dance?'. You know, we're more than just a club. We're friends. Best friends. Nothing could ever change that."

I loved the Babysitters Club book series! The movie didn't quite do it for me, but that monologue is pretty great.
