  • Since making her film debut in 1984's Dune, Alicia Witt has matured into one of the more steadily employed young actresses in Hollywood. With a resumé that includes both film and television work, the flame-haired Witt has become known for her roles in projects as varied as the TV sitcom Cybill and 1998's teen horror flick Urban Legends.Born August 21, 1975, in Worcester, MA, Witt displayed a remarkable precocity from an early age. Talking by age two and reading by the age of four, she made her film debut in Dune at the age of nine and earned her high school GED when she was 14. Her next role of any import was on David Lynch's TV series Twin Peaks (1990) and was later followed by a secondary role in 1993's Bodies, Rest & Motion, co-starring Bridget Fonda, Phoebe Cates, Eric Stoltz, and Tim Roth. In 1994, Witt earned Sundance credibility with her turn as a murderous teen in Fun and the following year was introduced to a wider audience with her role as Cybill Shepard's daughter on Cybill. A variety of roles followed in films ranging from the desultory (1995's Four Rooms) to the delightful (Alexander Payne's 1996 satire Citizen Ruth). 1996 also saw Witt in one of her more recognizable roles, as one of Richard Dreyfuss' struggling band students in Mr. Holland's Opus. Her recognition was further heightened with her appearance in 1998's Urban Legends, in which she co-starred with a number of other nascently twinkling stars, including Jared Leto, Joshua Jackson, and Rebecca Gayheart. She had a memorable part in John Waters scathing satire Cecil B. Demented, and went on to appear in Vanilla Sky, Two Weeks Notice, The Uspide of Anger, the Al Pacino thriller 88 Minutes, Peep World, and Cowgirls 'n Angels.

QUOTES FROM Alicia Witt CHARACTERS

Ms. Burns
Who was it who said 'Adversity is the stone on which I sharpen my blade?
Ms. Burns
Is it that obvious I'm sleepin' with him?
Brenda
Now...didn't you tell me...that you were having a little difficulty...forgiving yourself? I thought...as a friend...I could help you out in that department. Payback's a bitch! Isn't it?
Brenda
Now, didn't you tell me that you were having a little difficulty forgiving yourself? I thought, as a friend, I could help you out in that department. Payback's a bitch! Isn't it?
Natalie
Brenda, please, you need to get help.
Brenda
I have already tried therapy! Obviously, it did me no good. And I must say...I am kind of enjoying all this...playing with your pretty little head. You used an urban legend to kill my boyfriend. And now-

Natalie
What are you gonna do?
Brenda
Oh, just my favorite U.L. - The Kidney Heist. You do know this one, don't you? Guy gets picked up by a woman at a bar. She takes him back to her hotel room...Fixes him a drink. Boom; knocked out. When he wakes up, he's in a bathtub full of ice...and he realizes that one of his kidneys has been removed. Supposedly they sell them on the black market. I don't think it's ever actually happened though...Till tonight.

I must say, Natalie...you have proved your friendship to me...coming all the way out here to rescue me...without even a little pepper spray to defend yourself...Very endearing. Excuse me? I'm sorry, but I can't understand a thing you're saying, doll. Now, if I remove the gag...you have got to promise me...that you won't scream. Lord knows I had enough of that with Sasha.

I prefer the term "eccentric"...but...yeah...I guess you could say I'm a little nutty.

Natalie
(talking to Brenda about a horrible incident from her past) - We were in my car one night. Michelle was driving. The story about the gang high beam initiation had been going around. Michelle wanted to play a practical joke...so she turned the headlights off...and waited for the first car to pass by and flash us. When someone finally did...she made a U-turn and...Started chasing him...flashing her high beams, laughing. I was laughing, too, at first...then we started going really fast. I wanted to tell her to stop...but I just sat there. And then the other car lost control and ran off the road. He was our age. By the time the ambulance came, he was already dead. The courts were lenient with us. We just got probation. I was never able to forgive her for what she did. I guess I couldn't forgive myself for not doing something more to stop it.

What was all that about..."Reckless endangerment"? We're not exactly talking about running a stop sign here, are we now?
Paul

Natalie
I really don't wanna talk about it.
Paul
Oh, okay, what do you want to talk about? My career options without a body of writing samples...Because for your information, they're kind of limited.

Natalie
It was in high school. It's over.
Paul
Look. Does this have something to do with Michelle Mancini? Hey, I just wanna know what's going on here...'cause I don't know if I buy it anymore. I don't know if I ever bought it.

Dean Adams
You two break in to a professor's office...and then have the audacity to accuse him of murder?

We found the axe.
Professor Wexler
That is a prop I use in my folklore class. How can you even suggest that I had anything to do with that girl's death?
Natalie
Tonight's the 25th anniversary.
Paul
What's that got to do with anything?
Natalie
The Stanley Hall Massacre.
Paul
I told you, that story is not true.
Natalie
Are you sure?
Natalie
(talking about Tosh's death the night before) - There was someone else in that room. "Aren't you glad you didn't turn on the lights," for Christ's sake?

She painted half the room black. I had a pretty good idea.
Sasha
(while Natalie and Sasha are looking through a book about urban myths) - Wait a second. This is definitely not a myth!

Natalie
What?
Sasha
The "Gang High Beam Initiation." It happens all the time. Gang members drive around at night with their headlights off. And when someone goes to flash their high beams to warn them, they kill them. That's why I never warn anybody about anything when I drive.

Parker
Then my big question is, what is he gonna do next? Maybe put spider eggs in bubble gum or ram a gerbil up a celebrity's ass.
Parker
(about Damon's ordeal and disappearance) - It was a mannequin. Damon uses it all the time to scare pledges during hazing. He also has this life-size blow-up doll. But you don't wanna know about that.

Parker
Come on. Damon is the best practical joker on this campus, all right? He once convinced a freshman he was the middle Hanson brother to get laid.
Damon
(after Natalie shares a story with Damon about the loss of her friend) - You're lonely. You're repressed. You're aching to break loose. Those are the type of problems that only a man can fix.

Damon
Well, you know?
Natalie
Nice try. That was a fairly good impersonation of a human being.
Damon
I understand you're afraid. But you don't have to be afraid anymore. You don't have to be afraid to love. (He leans in for a kiss)
Natalie
(she punches Damon in the face) - Start the car right now!
Natalie
(she punches Damon in the face) Start the car right now!
Damon
Okay, that hurt. I'm just trying to help you out here. You don't have to act like such a bitch.
Natalie
It's not an act. Believe me.
Damon
You sure you don't wanna think this over...'Cause I'm all about healing.
Damon
You sure you don't wanna think this over 'Cause I'm all about healing.
Natalie
One black eye or two? You decide.
Damon
All right, fine. I'm gonna take a piss. I'll be right back.
Natalie
Pig.
Damon
Parker said he's gonna pierce Hootie's nose.
Natalie
Hootie's a dog.
Damon
Yeah, there's no reason he can't be hip.

Actually, you know, I did know her.

Let me tell you something, young man. The only lunatic on this campus is you.
Paul
I'm flattered. Can I quote you on that?
Reese
I have a quote for you. "U.S. News and World Report"...named Pendleton the safest university in this country. And you best believe, I intend to keep it that way.

Damon
It took me a month to grow this.
Brenda
So is this what you do for your free time, Damon? Hang out in the dark by yourself, waiting to scare people like a freak?
Damon
Only when I see two losers stand in front of this relic...trying to summon the dead.
