Bend It Like Beckham (2002) Poster

Juliet Stevenson: Paula Paxton


  • Jules : Me and Jess were fighting because we both fancy our coach... Joe.

    Paula : [pause]  Joe, a man, Joe?

    Jules : [exasperated]  Yeah, as in male, Joe! Joe, our coach, Joe, man, Joe!

  • Paula : Get your lesbian feet out of my shoes!

  • Jules : Anyway being a lesbian's not that big a deal

    Paula : Oh no of course not sweetheart no. I mean I've got nothing against it. I was cheering for Martina Navratilova as much as the next person.

  • Paula : All I'm saying is, there's a reason why Sporty Spice is the only one without a fella!

  • Paula : That's why she's been so depressed lately cos' that Jess broke her heart! She's in love. With a girl!

    Alan Paxton : You're jumping to all the wrong conclusions

    Paula : But I heard her! No wonder she never looked twice at the Kevin or brought any boys home. I tried to get her nice clothes, you know we've had some lovely prints in this summer you know in swimwear and sarongs and that. She never wants to go shopping with me. It was terrible what they did to that George Michael going on about him and his private business in the papers like that! Oh No!

    Alan Paxton : George Michael is still a superstar and you still listen to Wham!

  • Paula : Don't tell me. The offside rule is when the French mustard has to be between the teriyaki sauce and the sea salt.

  • Paula : When are you going to realize you have a daughter, with breasts, not a son!

  • Paula : You know Jesminder, I cooked a lovely curry the other day.

  • Paula : When will you realise you have a daughter with breasts not a son
