"I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car, I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind;
I hate you so much it makes me sick, it even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you're always right, I hate it when you lie,
I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it when you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call,
But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you, not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all."
- In the space of a few lines when Bianca first speaks to Cameron, she gets his name wrong twice, calling him Curtis and Calvin. He corrects her the first time, but not the second.
- Joey too, in the scene after the doctored flyers for Bogey's party are distributed. Joey calls him Bogey Lowenbrau while talking to Bianca.
- But played straight with Bianca falling for Joey. That is, until she also subverts it by falling for Cameron.
- Lampshaded with the White Rastas when they try to join in on Mr. Morgan's righteous indignation about the lack of black authors on the school curriculum, only to be reminded they're not actually black.
Michael: These delusionals are your White Rastas. Big Marley fans, they think they're black. Semi-political, but mostly...
Cameron: ...Smoke a lot of weed?
Bianca: Where did you come from? Planet "Loser"?
Kat: As opposed to Planet "Look At Me, Look At Me"?
- Kat also agreeing to go to the prom, despite having criticised it repeatedly earlier, so that Bianca can attend.
- Mr. Stratford sends Sarah Lawrence a check at the end so Kat can attend, even though he initially wanted her to stay close to home. When he tells Kat this, she's so happy she actually hugs him.
Cameron: We're screwed.
Michael: Hey, no, hey. I don't want to hear that defeatist attitude. I want to hear you upbeat.
Cameron:[upbeat)] We're screwed!
Michael: There you go.
- Chastity. She reveals her true colours at Bogey's party when she goes off with Joey afterwards (Bianca even calls her a bitch after that happens), then shows up at the prom with Joey seemingly just to rub it in Bianca's face that Joey was going to nail her after the prom all because of a bet with his friends.
Cameron: Did you just say ... am I in the right office?
Michael: She's actually looking for a French tutor...
Cameron: Are you serious? That's perfect!
Michael: Do you speak French?
Cameron: Well, no, but I will!
- Walter gives Joey one on prom night when the latter turns up at the Stratford house to pick up Bianca, before wordlessly slamming the door in Joey's face.
- Also captured in that wonderful exchange with Miss Perky:
Ms. Perky: People perceive you as somewhat...
Ms. Perky: "Heinous bitch" is the term used most often.
Cameron: I thought we could start with pronunciation?
Bianca: Ugh, not the hacking and gagging and spitting part, please.
Michael: I have a dick on my face, don't I?
- Mr Morgan insulting Joey in his class ("Someday you're gonna get bitch-slapped, and I'm not going to do a thing to stop it" and then "Unless she kicked the crap out of your dumb butt, I don't want to hear about it") sets up how Joey will get his ass handed to him by Bianca at the prom.
- Bianca tells Cameron in their first meeting that Kat used to be popular but an "unsolved mystery" caused her to become cold and antisocial. Bianca later finds out that it was because Kat went out with Joey before and they went all the way, but when Kat told Joey she wasn't ready to do it again, he dumped her.
- At Bogey's party, when Kat saw Bianca with Joey, Kat tried to get Bianca alone, but Bianca told her to go away. Kat was going to tell Bianca about her past relationship with Joey that she (and the audience) find out about later.
- When Coach Chapin is supervising detention several scenes later, he still visibly has trouble sitting down due to his earlier injury.
- A Noodle Incident equivalent happens in Kat's backstory. ("I still maintain that he kicked himself in the balls.")
- When Michael is on his bike and accidentally goes tumbling down a hill, he shouts "My balls!" during one of the bounces.
Cameron: Have you always been this selfish?
- Patrick is playing pool in a bar when Cameron and Michael tell him about Kat's likes and dislikes, which Cameron found out from Bianca.
- Kat is seen at Club Skunk when Patrick goes there to try and get to know her better, armed with facts about her that Cameron told him.
- The party at Bogey's house features loads of characters doing this.
- Kat is seen in the music store playing the guitar, and then in a bookshop, where Patrick finds her.
- Kat and Patrick do this after Kat sneaks Patrick out of detention, where they rent a pedalo and then go paint-balling.
- When Bianca once again asks Mr. Stratford if she can go to the prom, he's doing exercises on the back patio.
- At the prom, Patrick tells Kat he was in Milwaukee the year before, looking after his grandfather, which consisted (from what we hear) of watching Wheel of Fortune and making SpaghettiOs.
- Cameron wants Bianca to go sailing with him, and after the prom, she agrees to. Their last scene is of the two of them heading off to go sailing.
- "Are you kidding me?"
- In a subversion of the Almost Kiss that happens in the film, Ledger instead accepts the invitation and pulls Stiles into a big, sloppy kiss.
- An example: It's a 45 minute drive from Stadium High School in Tacoma (where the actual school building is located) to the docks where they rent the boat when they escape detention.
- Bianca at first. Best exemplified early on when she says, "Can we just focus on me for a second, please?" She drops it after Cameron calls her out on her behaviour.
- Mr Stratford. True, he may want what he feels is best for Kat and Bianca, but he does it by essentially not wanting them to grow up and have their own lives and doing what they want, coming across as an overprotective jerk in the process. He still loves them, though, and despite not wanting Kat to attend Sarah Lawrence, at the end he does allow her to do so, and is impressed when he learns Bianca beat the hell out of Joey.
- Kat. She comes across as a jerk to almost everyone due to what happened between her and Joey in the backstory. She refuses to let Bianca date Joey or to date anyone seemingly just so Bianca can't. She's still a good person under it all and Bianca sees Kat's point eventually about Joey. Of course, her good side comes round full-circle when she decides to go to the prom just so Bianca can attend and have a good time.
- Michael is kicked out of the Ivy League group at Padua for a petty reason by Bogey Lowenstein, so Michael gets his revenge by planning a house party at Bogey's house without Bogey knowing about it. It also has a side effect for the main characters in that it gives Joey, then Cameron, an excuse to get with Bianca.
- Also, when Bianca finds out about Joey's ultimate aim to have his way with her on prom night, and now knowing about what he did to Kat in the past, she furiously attacks him.
- Also received a tone-shift between script drafts; the original screenplay is much darker, including a subplot about a suicidal Mandella.
- Cameron James is named after King James, who ruled during Shakespeare's life.
Cameron:I burn, I pine, I perish!
Michael: ...Sure you do.
"I'll let you get back to Reginald's quivering member."
"I've got deviants to see and a novel to finish... now SCOOT!"
- She gets a few more mentions, the implication being that she left the family, and that left the dad feeling out of control, explaining why he's so overprotective of his daughters. She seemed to have been a character in an older version of the script.
- Whether she left in a taxi or a hearse is never established, but frankly it doesn't change much.
- In the original script, their mother was present, but spent all of her time at the computer writing romance novels. All of the gags surrounding Ms. Perky's novels originally belonged to Mrs. Stratford.
- In the series, she's dead.
The film10 Things I Hate About You is a modern day American version of the English play 'Taming of the Shrew' by the poet and play writer William Shakespeare. The modern film incorporates many popular film making techniques used in today's cinemas. These techniques have been used by director Gil Junger in order to demonstrate and communicate adolescent Journey in this film. These techniques include camera angles, lighting, sound and music and props and clothing. These film making techniques have been used by director Gil Junger to communicate and demonstrate adolescent Journey.
Camera Angles are used in order to demonstrate and communicate the adolescent journey in 10 Thing I Hate About You. Camera distance is used to show adolescence is an emotional time and the status of certain types of adolescents which are affected by how the camera views them. A prime example of this is when Kat attended the party and became drunk beginning to dance in the midst of a crowd on a table. In this scene the camera angle used to depict Kat was known as an inferior camera angle showing Kat dancing drunk on the table which showed her status in doing this act inferior, not only for her own character perception and norm but also for the hooker type attitude she would have developed in doing that. Another example is seen when Patrick sings a solo to his love Kat at her Soccer match. It seen in this seen that the camera is a superior angle to Patrick as he sings 'Can't Get My Eyes Off You' to Kat. This symbolizes that the act that Patrick has just preformed has lifted his status from what was once an inferior person chasing Kat to what is now a person who has caught up to Kat and has won the war of taming her. These camera angels clearly show that camera angles are used to demonstrate and communicate the adolescent journey in 10 Things I Hate About You.
10 Things I hate about You also includes many lighting techniques to demonstrate adolescent Journey. Lighting is used to show the experiences of adolescents and that adolescents go through a journey during this stage from leaving childhood to entering adulthood and that sometimes this can be a difficult transition for some adolescents. A clear case in 10 Things I Hate About You were lighting is used, is at the Party scene whereby Kat leaves the Party where it is illuminated brightly and clear and moves outside to a scene where it is a darkened night and not as visible. This demonstrates that in the party there must have been excitement, delightment, enthusiasm and pleasure to a backyard that was gloomy, bleak, depressing and disheartening. Evidently in 10 Things I hate About You the director Gil Junger has demonstrated an adolescent journey through many lightning techniques that he has emphasized throughout the film.
In the film 10 Things I hate About You Gil Junger also uses sound in order to demonstrate and communicate adolescent journey. Different sounds and music
