Great, not so well, remembered movie lines
Observations of a Middle-aged Dragon with a tattoo:
Great lines capture the essence of a scene, a movie, a life and in some cases a generation.
We all remember lines like Gone with the Wind’s: ‘Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn’. Then there’s the one that was never said in the movie Casablanca: ‘Play it again Sam’ what Bogie actually said was ‘You played it for her, you can play it for me! Play it Sam. Play as Time Goes By.’
Everyone remembers: Forrest from Forrest Gump saying, ‘My mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.’
But may have forgotten: ‘Me and Jenny goes together like peas and carrots.’
1933: DUCK SOUP: Groucho Marx: ‘You know, you haven't stopped talking since I came here? You must have been vaccinated with a phonograph needle.’
1954: SABRINA: Thomas her father: ‘He’s still David Larrabee and you’re still the chauffeur’s daughter. And you’re still reaching for the moon.’
Sabrina: ‘No father. The moon is reaching for me.’
1957: THE SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS: J.J. Hunsecker ‘I'd hate to take a bite outta you. You're a cookie full of arsenic.’
Scottie: ‘Don’t you think it’s sort of a waste for the two of us to…’
Madeleine: ‘Wander separately? Ah, but only one is a wanderer. Two together are always going somewhere.’
1965: DARLING ROBERT: Robert: ‘Your idea of fidelity is not having more than one man in bed at the same time.’
1970: BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS: Ashley: ‘You’re a groovy boy. I’d like to strap you on sometime.’
1978: CALIFORNIA SUITE: Hannah: ‘You’re worse than a hopeless romantic. You’re a hopeful one.’
1981: BODY HEAT:
Ned: ‘Maybe you shouldn’t dress like that.’
Matty: ‘This is a blouse and a skirt. I don’t know what you’re talking about.’
Ned: ‘You shouldn’t wear that body.’
1983: WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? Jessica Rabbit: ‘I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.’
1988: BULL DURHAM: Annie: ‘A guy’ll listen to anything if he thinks it’s foreplay.’
1988: BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY: Jamie Conway: ‘She’s got a heart like a twelve-minute egg.’
1991: NEW JACK CITY: Nino Brown: ‘Sit your five-dollar ass down before I make change.’
1996: TRAINSPOTTING: Renton (a junkie): ‘I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin’ else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got heroin?’
1996: THE LAST KISS GOODNIGHT: Charly Baltimore: ‘Were you always this stupid, or did you take lessons?’
1999: THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY: Ripley: ‘I always thought it would be better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody.’
<<<2000: ERIN BROCKOVICH:
George: ‘How many numbers you got?’
Erin Brockovich: ‘Oh, I got numbers comin' outta my ears. For instance: ten’.
Erin Brockovich: ‘Yeah. That's how many months old my baby girl is.’
George: ‘You got a little girl?’
Erin Brockovich: ‘Yeah. Yeah, sexy, huh? How 'bout this for a number? Six. That's how old my other daughter is, eight is the age of my son, two is how many times I've been married - and divorced; sixteen is the number of dollars I have in my bank account. 850-3943. That's my phone number, and with all the numbers I gave you, I'm guessing zero is the number of times you're gonna call it.’
2001: Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN:
Luisa: ‘You have to make the clitoris your best friend’
