Some movies just stick with us, for whatever reason.
Maybe it has a lot of action.
Maybe it had a great story.
Possibly, it was just that hilarious.
In a lot of movies, there are pieces of dialogue that just stick out.
They are really funny
They have meaning and speak to me.
I am sure it is that way for all of us.
Some quotes just come back to me time and again.
This weeks Ten Things Tuesday is on the movie quotes that I really remember.
1. " Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they never stopped to think if they should."
This is so true of so many things. A lot of people do because they can and never think of the consequences. Or they don't care what may happen.
Ian said it to John.
2 "Intellectuals, liberals, peacemongers, IDIOTS!"
I love this movie. If you have never seen it, I highly recommend it. Martians invade and the governments keep trying to be their friends. Most of the people seem to have their heads up their asses.
The general said it because he was mad no one would listen.
3. "It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me."
Isn't that the truth? It isn't about your name, how much money you have, or what clothes you wear. It's about the way you chose to live.
Bruce said it to Rachel. He was paraphrasing something she had said to him earlier.
4. " POTATOES! You know potatoes? Fry 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew."
Lord of the Rings: Two Towers
As to why I remember this phrase, I really don't know. I just do. If you don't remember- Sam said it to Gollum.
5." You're goin' down like a sweet muffin!"
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story
This was a funny, funny movie. About a group of guys playing in a dodgeball tournament to pay off a loan.
White said this to Peter during the competition.
6. "If you're here and I'm here, doesn't that make it our time?"
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
So, the dude was a stoner. Isn't that actually true?
Spicoli said this to Mr. Hand in class one day.
7. "I do not think that word means what you think it means."
The Princess Bride
Don't you just want to say that to people sometimes? I know I do.
Inigo said this to Vizzini because Vizzini kept saying things were "Inconceivable!"
8. " Now, get out of my Van Halen t-shirt before you jinx it and the band breaks up."
The Wedding Singer
If you grew up in the 80s, you can definitely relate to this movie. But, my daughter loves it too so I'd say all around winner.
Robbie said this to Linda when she tried to get back together with him.
9. " When you grow up, your heart dies."
The Breakfast Club
My mom always thought this was horrible, but in some ways it is true.
When you grow up, you aren't the same. You can't do things just because they are fun. You have responsibilities and to a teenager that can seem like you don't care about what they want.
Allison said this to the rest of the group.
10. " Life is a do over."
Life really sucks sometimes. Sometimes all you can do is start over.
Just because things have turned to crap doesn't mean they always will be that way.
Mitch said this to Phil after Phil majorly FUBARed his life.
