Friday Favorites: Movie Quotes

Friday, October 2, 2009

I love movies (it's a family thing), but what I love more than anything is a perfectly placed movie quote in everyday conversation. It's a truly magical moment. My sister and I are pretty good at carrying on a conversation and half of it being movie quotes. It's just so fun.

Here are some of my favorite movie quotes. This is not a complete list. I'm sure five seconds after posting this email I will think of others. Don't worry. I will update this list as they come to me.

  • (Rocky) Paulie: [talking about Adrian] You like her?
    Rocky: Sure, I like her.
    Paulie: What's the attraction?
    Rocky: I dunno... she fills gaps.
    Paulie: What's 'gaps'?
    Rocky: I dunno, she's got gaps, I got gaps, together we fill gaps.
  • (Rocky) Rocky: Ah come on, Adrian, it's true. I was nobody. But that don't matter either, you know? 'Cause I was thinkin', it really don't matter if I lose this fight. It really don't matter if this guy opens my head, either. 'Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody's ever gone the distance with Creed, and if I can go that distance, you see, and that bell rings and I'm still standin', I'm gonna know for the first time in my life, see, that I weren't just another bum from the neighborhood.
  • (Peter Pan) Lost Boy (Bear): I think I had a mother once.
    Lost Boy (Racoon): What was she like?
    Lost Boy (Bear): I forget.
    Lost Boy (Fox): I had a white rat.
    Lost Boy (Bear): That's no mother! (Don't ask why this is a favorite of mine)
This list goes on and on, but my battery is about to die so I have to stop there. Don't worry I will finish.
