Game Friday: You Can Quote Me on That

Hi all! Happy Friday!! Hope you all are hatching some stellar weekend plans for our newly minted autumn (or know who you are).

We deserve to kick off the merriment a little early, right? Right??

Share with us one of your favorite movie quotes. One that really speaks to you. Extra points if you used it in conversation today. I'll get us started with a couple.

"Talk to me Goose." Tom Cruise (as Maverick), Top Gun

"Do. Or do not. There is no try." Yoda (playing himself), Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back

'' No, you just need to believe. Promise me, Shifu, promise me you will believe. ''

(Oogway to Shifu in Kung Fu Panda.)

Too common, but one's I use (or think) frequently:

"We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto."
"You can't handle the truth!"
"Help me Obi-Wan-Kenobi, you're my only hope."

No ID necessary, right?

"There are too many notes!" said the King of Austria to Mozart in Amadeus in regards to WAM's opera The Marriage of Figaro.

Wonder what he would have said to Wagner...

Catherine Vibert said...

Oh, I thought of a couple more.

"Your eyes are full of hate, 41." (Ben Hur)

"But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief that thou, her maid, art far more fair than she." Need I say from whence this comes?

Incurable hopeless romantic, I know...

Vesper said...

This is fun, Jason. :-) Here are some that I like:

The Pope: When will you make an end?
Michelangelo: When I am finished!

(from "The Agony and the Ecstasy")

Harry Callahan: I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?

(from "Dirty Harry")

"The truth? What truth? There is no truth. These men just make it up as they go along."

(Alex Krycek in "The X-Files")

Have a wonderful weekend!

"Come on, Heather. Let's have another look at today's lunch. Bulemia is so '87." Heather #1 to Heather #3, Heathers

And also from Heathers, "I love my dead gay son!"

I need to watch that again. The militia inspired feminine 80's fashion alone is good for laughs even with the volume off.

Chris Eldin said...

LOL! These are so much fun!

From a Bette Davis flick, something like, "Hold on. It's going to be a bumpy night."
Oh, I have to google that now. I just hear Bette Davis saying that...
