Movie Quotes or Dialogue

Recommended Posts

Post your most memorable movie quotes (or dialogue) here. I'm thinking not necessarily the most well known (Life is a box of chocolates), but those which stuck with you for some reason. If you wanna say why its memorable to you, even better.

 

To start:

 

From "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" (major paraphrasing)

 

Mona Stangley : And Jesus went to a wedding where he turned the water into wine

 

Sheriff Earl Dodd: He was a great man, and he knew how to throw a party

 

Mona: Earl, I can't believe you said that, that's sacrilegious

 

Earl: I know, I know. But God forgives me.

 

Mona: Ain't it funny how God can for give you, but people can't?

 

Earl: I suppose that's because people aint very God-like

 

 

I was a teenager when I saw this scene. Growing up, we were taught that our parents' word was infallible. I was starting to realize this wasn't true, and they were often unfair. Seeing this scene brought it home that people truly aren't "God-lkie"

“It reminds me of that old joke—you know, a guy walks into a psychiatrist's office and says, 'Hey doc, my brother's crazy! He thinks he's a chicken.' Then the doc says, 'Why don't you turn him in?' Then the guy says, 'I would, but I need the eggs.' I guess that's how I feel about relationships. They're totally crazy, irrational, and absurd, but we keep going through it because we need the eggs.”

 

— last line of Annie Hall

NSFW WARNING!!! FOUL LANGUAGE.....

 

There are so many great lines in Pulp Fiction, these are my favorite because the dialogue is so unique and original....

 

Butch Coolidge: You okay?

Marsellus Wallace: Nah, man. I'm pretty f-ing far from okay.

Butch Coolidge: What now?

Marsellus Wallace: What now? Let me tell you what now. I'm gonna call a couple of hard, pipe-hitting n----as to go to work on the homes here with a pair of pliers and a blow torch. [to Zed] You hear me talking, hillbilly boy? I ain't through with you by a damn sight. I'm gonna get medieval on your ass.

Jules Winnfield: F.. n--ga what the F did you do to his towel?

Vincent Vega: I was dryin' my hands.

Jules: You're supposed to wash 'em first!

Vincent: You watched me wash 'em.

Jules: I watched you get 'em wet.

Vincent: I was washing 'em. But this s-- 's hard to get off. Maybe if I had Lava or something, I coulda done a better job.

Jules: I used the same F-in' soap you did and when I got finished, the towel didn't look like no goddamn Maxi-Pad!

St. Elmos Fire: Wendy: Yea… ya wanna know what’s great? Last night I woke up in the middle of the night to make myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich… and ya know, it was my kitchen, it was my refrigerator, it was my apartment… and it was the BEST peanut butter and jelly sandwich that I have had in my entire life.

 

Joy Luck Club

I tell you the story because I was raised the Chinese way. I was taught to desire nothing, to swallow other people's misery, and to eat my own bitterness. And even though I taught my daughter the opposite, still she came out the same way. Maybe it is because she was born to me and she was born a girl, and I was born to my mother and I was born a girl, all of us like stairs, one step after another, going up, going down, but always going the same way. No, this cannot be, this not knowing what you're worth, this not begin with you. My mother not know her worth until too late - too late for her, but not for me. Now we will see if not too late for you, hmm?

 

Ferris Bueller's Day Off (first time there was dialogue after closing credits in a movie from all I know)

 

You’re Still Here? It’s Over. Go Home.

LaHermes reminded me of another favorite quote. I just saw the movie "Dirty Harry" last month.

 

"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 kinda lost track myself.

But being this is a . 44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off,

you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

I love that movie especially for the dialogue. "Royale with cheese?" "Yeah, it's the metric system, what do they know about a quarter pound?"

I didn't see Joy Luck Club, but listened to the audiobook. The opening where she talks about how surprised she was about her aunt dying because she thought the aunt had died years ago stuck with me.

Breakfast Club

 

See this what you get at the Bender house when you spill paint in the garage. It looks like the size of a cigar. Did I stutter?.....

 

What About you dad? No, what about you? ..... you!

 

I took a course in Grad school on Conflict resolution. One assignment was to write about conflict in a movie, using a certain rubric. I chose the Breakfast Club.

    • Girls Will Act Like THIS When They Develop Feelings For You (Early Signs Of Affection & Attraction)
      Is she developing feelings for me? In today's video we're going to be discussing those very early initial signs she is developing feelings for you. Just as a girl starts to fall for you her actions and behaviours will begin to change when she's around you. From the types of texts she sends you to the way she is in your company.

      There is no better feelings in the world than that of falling in love with someone. Finding someone that you can share your life with is the best and it's something that everyone is searching for. Women are known for wearing their hearts on their sleeves, and when they fall for someone they fall deeply for them. And often experience the feeling of love before the other person does. So they normally try to keep this to themselves though because they don't like feeling vulnerable. And they want to make sure that you feel the same before they say anything.

      So because of this it can make it difficult for the men because it's hard to tell if they are developing feelings for you or not. It often means that men have to take that initial risk and announce their feelings before a lady does. So today's video I'm going to tell you what girls do when they start to develop feeling for you. Now this is going to help you understand when a lady likes you or if she doesn't. And it should help you be more confident when it comes to making that first move.

In this video I respond to a letter from a man who struggles to detach from an ex who tries to keep him at arm's length, but hooked on her all the same.
