Favorite Lines


A few of my favorite lines from a few of my favorite movies. Enjoy.

(Jack) Why love, if losing hurts so much? I have no answers anymore: only the life I have lived. Twice in that life I've been given the choice: as a boy and as a man. The boy chose safety, the man chooses suffering. The pain now is part of the happiness then. That's the deal.
(Joy) Are you TRYING to be offensive, or merely stupid?

Bottle Rocket:
Anthony) Grace thinks I'm a failure. (Dignan) What? What has she ever accomplished in her life that's so great?

(Kumar) Man, I blew it. I blew it, man. (Anthony) Kumar, what were you doing in the freezer? (Kumar) I don't know, man, I lose my touch, man. (Dignan) Did you ever have a touch to lose, man?

Chocolat: Once upon a time, there was a quiet little village in the French countryside, whose people believed in Tranquilité - Tranquility. If you lived in this village, you understood what was expected of you. You knew your place in the scheme of things. And if you happened to forget, someone would help remind you. In this village, if you saw something you weren't supposed to see, you learned to look the other way. If perchance your hopes had been disappointed, you learned never to ask for more. So through good times and bad, famine and feast, the villagers held fast to their traditions. Until, one winter day, a sly wind blew in from the North...

The Darjeeling Limted:I'm gonna mace you in the face!

Emma: (Emma) Good heavens! Go back!

Pride & Prejudice:(Mr. Darcy) Yes, but that was only when I first knew her, for it is many months since I have considered her as one of the handsomest women of my acquaintance.

OH, I just loved to see some of your favorite movies! Some I've never seen, but I also LOVE Chocolat, Emma, and Pride & Prejudice! OH, Colin Firth! Makes me fluttery!

Shadowlands is also a favorite movie of another friend of mine. After reading that quote, I've GOT to see it. AMAZING!

HOORAY for the movies!!!

Love it! I need to go rent some of those movies though. A couple I have never seen. Emma is still one of my all time favorites too.

Dude, I swear Wes Anderson wants to be J.D. Salinger. That bottlerocket line is straight out of "The Catcher in the Rye."

Fun post, missy.
