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?

***Also, if any Wonder Women did anything special for themselves since last Wednesday please list it in the comments section too :)

I love that movie "As Good As It Gets". There were so many great lines in that. It was funny, but so emotional too.

Here's another quote:

Wuthering Heights: "If you ever looked at me once with what I know is in you, I would be your slave."


To answer your question. I haven't done a single thing this week for myself. But, I do plan to give myself a pedicure tomorrow. I already can't wait! :)

Molly Daniels said...

ACK! Forgot about that. Does my fantastic Saturday with the husband count?

anny cook said...

No quotes... but I got a haircut!

Regina Carlysle said...

I can't believe you mentioned pampering Kelly. Great minds and all that...I just blogged about it. Getting my HAIR DONE tomorrow. Damn, needs it too.

The line from As Good As It Gets is one of my favorites. I know this is corny but I loooove Young Frankenstein. Crazy movie. There's this scene where Gene Wilder and Teri Garr are standing at the door of the castle and he bangs the gigantic "knocker" on the door.

He says....Wow, what Knockers.
Terri giggles and says...Why thank you Herr Doctor!

Don't know why but that always cracks me up.

Tonya said...

I'm rushing around quick this morning, late for a meeting. I overslept. LOL!!! OOPS....does that count as doing something for myself?

Kelley, great topic! Movies and books often have amazing lines...and all the ones you mentioned are fabulous...Loved Dirty Dancing!!! How about from Forrest Gump? There are tons of quotes I love from there. That was a dynamic movie to me, but two of my favorites revolve around his relationship with Jenny, "We were like peas and carrots" and "I'm not a smart man, but I know what love is".

Kelley Nyrae said...

AGAIG is a great movie, isn't it? LOVE that quote from Wuthering Heights.

Molly, well if the day was fun for you and you enjoyed yourself with no work then it does, lol.

Anny, Congrats on the haircut.

Regina Carlysle said...

Tonya...I love that last Forrest Gump line you gave. That line is so profound that I always tear up. It's just beautiful.

Kelley Nyrae said...

Regina, Yay on getting your hair done. I need to do it too!

Tonya, GREAT quote from Gump!

I love the movie Pretty Woman - When Vivan says "Well, color me happy! There's a sofa in here for two!"

My all time favorite movie is Martian Child - THis quote gets me everytime "I do know, there's no one on this planet that loves Dennis anymore than I do."

That was fun :) A might have more later :)

That bit in Sense and Sensibility. Just as Elena's family is leaving so Mr. Ferris can tell her that it wasn't him that married the other woman, but his brother and that his heart belonged to her, and Emma Thompson did that infamous ugly cry.

Love that.

Don't waste your time with Gone with the Wind, I saw it a couple of years ago, all this hype and Scarlett O'Hara was such a BITCH! My God that woman was annoying.

I'll probably be hunted down with a pitch fork for that.

Kelley Nyrae said...

Ashley, love, love, love Pretty Woman. That's a cute line.

Amy, we won't hunt you down with pitch forks, I promise.

No quotes, but I love the last scene in 'Never Been Kissed' with Drew Barrymore where she stands in the middle of the baseball field waiting, and waiting and the 5 minutes decrease to seconds and her guy doesn't show, but then the crowd goes wild and you see him walk down the bleachers and he runs to her, grabs her for her FIRST REAL KISS. I love, love, love that scene. Who needs words? :)


P.S. Scarlett was annoying in GWTW. By the time Rhett tells her that famous line, I was ready to say it with him. LOL Though I did enjoy reading the book - twice...
