Famous movie quotes
Thought I'd try something different today and talk about famous movie quotes. You know what I'm talking about? Those quotes that you hear and you know exactly what movie they're from. Sometimes all you have to do is hear half the quote and you know exactly what the person is going to say. And sometimes we even use those quotes in our everyday lives. "I'll be back" my family and I tease each other with that famous Terminator line all the time. Of course we use the "Arnold" voice too. Can't say "I'll be back" without it. Another one of my favorites is "You had me at hello" or "You complete me". I'm not a big Tom fan but loved it when he said that to Renee. Those two lines will forever be in my memory. Oh, and who can forget, "Nobody puts Baby in the corner". *Swoon* Patrick was so hot in that movie. Loved it when he came and grabbed Baby and jerked her out of the corner and brought her up on the stage. His respect for her showed so clearly in that one line. One of my favorites, and I agree with Helen Hunt on this one, its one of the best compliments I've ever heard is, "You make me want to be a better man" from As Good as it Gets. Can you imagine having some guy say that to you? Again, *swoon*. Of course we can't forget one of the most famous of all times, "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn". I'm going to let you in on a little secret, I've never actually seen the movie but I know the line that's for sure!
I love quotes like this. Just one line that brings a scene alive in your head. I remember what I felt like when Johnny walked up to Baby and said that. My heart accelerated. Butterflies danced in my belly. I remember that scene perfectly and that one line makes makes the image bloom in my mind every time I hear it.
Do you like quotes? Have any favorite movie quotes that make you smile, make you laugh, that makes your heart feel good? What about quotes from a book? Is there a line from one of your favorite books that the hero or heroine say to each other that makes you swoon?
