The bodacious-ness of movie lines and quotes

I realized I was on to something with a portion of yesterday’s Thanksgiving Day post. While listing all the main things I was forever thankful for, I mentioned random and not so random movie quotes that allow me to partake in some verbal movie quote vomiting on a regular basis. But OBVIOUSLY that one little paragraph hardly did this topic justice!! Half of my vocabulary and means of expressing myself can be directly attributed to movies and the skillful writers who pen the most brilliant of lines.

And so, presently, it’s my great pleasure to give you a list of my most used and/or most favorite movie lines or dialogues I can think of…(by all means, please share ones you feel are equally as relevant. I may be missing out on some key phrases in life!!)

“I just want them to know that they didn’t break me.”

“There’s a rhythmic ceremonial ritual coming up.”

“Life is not whatnot, and it’s none of your business.”

“Sofa City, Sweetheart!”

“And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday.”

“You wanna know what happened? Buy the book!”

“Nobody puts Baby in the corner.”

“Marie de Salle’s playing. You remember I told you about her. I like her. She’s kind of Sheryl Crow-ish crossed with a post-Partridge Family pre-L.A. Law Susan Dey kind of thing, but, you know, uh, black.”

“You’re an idiot anyway. But if you say you get along with your parents, well, you’re a liar too.”

“Suddenly a dark cloud settled over first period… “

“You can dere-lick my balls cap-E-tan.”

“Allow myself to introduce… myself!”

“A man with priorities so far out of whack doesn’t deserve such a fine automobile.”

“His name is Blane? Oh! That’s a major appliance, that’s not a name!”


“I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!”

“Todd! Are you not aware that I get farty and bloated with a foamy latte?”

“Last night, Darth Vader came down from planet Vulcan and told me that if I didn’t take Lorraine out that he’d melt my brain.”

“This is my dance space. This is your dance space.”

“A eugoogoolizer… one who speaks at funerals…Or did you think I was too stupid to know what a eugoogooly was?”

“Why must I be surrounded by frickin’ idiots?”

“Do you think I’d speak for you? I don’t even know your language.”

“Phat! Did you write that?”

“My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.”

“Was I the only one listening?I thought it reeked.”

“Nice ma- nice manners, babe.”

“That was way harsh, Tai.”

“Games, Jake. Silly torturous games.”

“There’s that word again; “heavy”. Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the earth’s gravitational pull?”

“Tell me the part about Kenny G again?”

“Would you guys please hurry up, I’m breaking like 30 major laws here.”

“I’m Farmer Ted.”

“Darling is something bothering you? …you’re acting like… an a**hole.”

“That’s a Cosby sweater.”

“This isn’t life, it’s just stuff. And it’s become more important to you than living. Well, honey, that’s just nuts.”

“He is totally enamored of me. I mean, I’ve had other men love me before, but not for six months in a row.”

“Charlie, you f*cking bitch. Let’s work it out.”

Nicholas Angel: You’re a doctor, deal with it!
Danny Butterman: Yeah, motherf*&ker!”

“I quote John Lennon, “I don’t believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.” Good point there. After all, he was the walrus. I could be the walrus. I’d still have to bum rides off people.”

“Don’t worry about it, I don’t even have a piece of shit. I have to envy yours.”

“I rule!”

Oh (this is me talking now, not referring to a movie)… I also like that part at the end of Dirty Dancing when they finally get the lift right.

Good times!

One thought on “The bodacious-ness of movie lines and quotes

  1. Woo, here are some of my favs:

    "What? No. We can't stop here. This is bat country. "

    "Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. " (most anything from the Holy Grail is quotable…)

    "It's a Trap!!"

    "No expect you to die Mr. bond."

    And that new Herzog movie w/ Nicholas Cage:

    "To the Break of dawn! the Break of DAWN!"

    "Shoot him again… his soul is still dancing"

    (which is probably going to be a bat-shit movie of awesomeness.)
