Today’s Monday Listicles topic is 10 Movies. Or is it 10 Favorite Movies? Or 10 Favorite Movie Quotes? I do know what it is but I’ve decided to mush it together and, unfortunately, I have more than 10 quotes but they are from only 10 movies. Does that count?
These are some of my favorite movies and a few are “All Time” favorites.
Here you go and in no specific order of favoritism.
10 Favorite Movies And Their Best Quotes (IMO):
“Surely you can’t be serious.” "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley."
2. The Princess Bride
Inigo Montoya: “You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.”
The Man in Black: “You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.”
Prince Humperdinck: “Please consider me as an alternative to suicide.” (Great pick up line?)
Man in Black: “I do not envy you the headache you will have when you awake. But for now, rest well and dream of large women.”
Inigo Montoya: “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” (In response to “Inconceivable”)
I think the Man in Black said all the best stuff!
3. When Harry Met Sally.
“I’ll have what she’s having”
4. SAY ANYTHING
“I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that.”
“One question: are you here 'cause you need someone, or 'cause you need me?... Forget it, I don't care.”
5. THE BREAKFAST CLUB
“We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all.”
“Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you're crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us... In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain...
...and an athlete...
...and a basket case...
...and a criminal...
Does that answer your question?... Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.”
6. THE WAY WE WERE
“When you love someone, from Roosevelt to me, you go deaf, dumb and blind.”
“Wouldn't it be lovely if we were old? We'd have survived all this. Everything thing would be easy and uncomplicated; the way it was when we were young.”
“Katie, it was never uncomplicated.”
“You never give up, do you?
“Only when I'm absolutely forced to. But I'm a very good loser...”
“Better than I am.”
“Well, I've had... more practice.”
7. SIXTEEN CANDLES
“That's why they call them crushes. If they were easy, they'd call 'em something else.”
And anything Long Duk Dong says.
8. FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF
“The question isn't "what are we going to do," the question is "what aren't we going to do?"
“The 1961 Ferrari 250GT California. Less than a hundred were made. My father spent three years restoring this car. It is his love, it is his passion.”
“It is his fault he didn't lock the garage.”
“If you're not over here in fifteen minutes, you can find a new best friend.”
“You've been saying that since the fifth grade.”
9. SOMEWHERE IN TIME
“Is it you? Is it?”
“The man of my dreams has almost faded now. The one I have created in my mind. The sort of man each woman dreams of, in the deepest and most secret reaches of her heart. I can almost see him now before me. What would I say to him if he were really here? "Forgive me. I have never known this feeling. I have lived without it all my life. Is it any wonder, then, I failed to recognise you? You, who brought it to me for the first time. Is there any way that I can tell you how my life has changed? Any way at all to let you know what sweetness you have given me? There is so much to say. I cannot find the words. Except for these: I love you". Such would I say to him if he were really here.”
“Have we ever met before?”
10. PITCH PERFECT
“What are you doing?”
“I have a feeling we should kiss. Is that a good feeling or an incorrect feeling?”
“Well... sometimes I have the feeling I can do crystal meth, but then I think, mmm... better not.”
I saw this for the second time this weekend and it’s so much funnier. The best lines come from Fat Amy.
