Friendship Quotes in The Perks of Being a Wallflower

How we cite our quotes: (Part.Chapter.Paragraph)

Quote #4

It would be very nice to have a friend again. I would like that even more than a date. (1.7.32)

After Michael's death, Charlie is eagerly craving any sort of social interaction. We know it's desperate when a teenage boy wants a friend more than a date.

Quote #5

Sam sat down and started laughing. Patrick started laughing. I started laughing. And in that moment, I swear we were infinite. (1.10.118)

Infinite. What a great way to describe the profound power of a shared moment of joy between friends. Can you remember your most recent infinite moment?

Quote #6

I hope it's the kind of second side [of a mix tape] that [Patrick] can listen to whenever he drives alone and feel like he belongs to something whenever he's sad. (2.7.8)

Charlie is really the sensitive type, huh? No matter what kind of stupid stuff he does to and with his friends, it's pretty clear that he cares about them.
