movie quotes

Date May 9, 2008

I love the movies.  The popcorn.  Big Diet Cokes with lots of ice.  (oh, how I loved thee, Diet Coke!) The quiet hush as the lights go down.  I stinking LOVE the movies. 

When Lyle and I lived in Australia, we’d meet in Sydney on Saturdays and watch movies all day long.  It made it feel not so far away for a while.  Sisser and I have been known to see three movies in one day, and there’s no telling how many I’ve seen all by myself.  I just adore ’em.  I really do.  We won’t discuss at the moment the fact that movies in Colombia are in Spanish.  We won’t.  I’m coping with it.  There’s still the popcorn. 

What we’ll talk about instead is movie quotes.  What’s your all time favorite? 

Mine?  Just one?  It’s tough, but “You’re killin’ me Smalls!” ranks up there.  Who doesn’t love The Sandlot? I mean, honestly!

Now, let’s hear ’em.  Leave your favorite quote in the comments.

    I love movies too, and I don’t really know if I can narrow down to one favorite. Let me see if I can pick a few.

    The Man from Snowy River and The Return to Snowy River
    National Treasure
    Dirty Dancing
    Lonesome Dove series
    I really could go on and on.

    Oh yes, movie quotes are the soundtrack to my life. I say about 5 original sentences per day and everything else I say is a movie quote. It’s impossible to choose a favoite, so here’s a few of my most-used quotes:
    “Oh, look what a mess little Neddy made of his car seat” About a Boy
    “Killer boots, man!” Dumb and Dumber
    “Get that corn outta my face!” Nacho Libre
