“Here’s looking at you, kid.”

I’m not a movie buff, but there are a few movies which I’ve enjoyed because the dialogue (which is always my favorite in movies, because movies with great dialogue tend to be character driven and that’s what I enjoy most).

Here are some of my favorites

BREAKING AWAY (The dad talking about Italian food):

“I know I-tey food when I hear it! It’s all them “eenie” foods… zucchini… and linguine… and fettuccine. I want some American food, dammit! I want French fries!”






“You know what’s wrong with you, Miss Whoever-You-Are? You’re chicken, you’ve got no guts. You’re afraid to stick out your chin and say, “Okay, life’s a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that’s the only chance anybody’s got for real happiness.” You call yourself a free spirit, a wild thing, and you’re terrified somebody’s going to stick you in a cage. Well, baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somaliland. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.”

WHEN HARRY MET SALLY (The Ooooohhhhh, yes, yes…..ohhhhhh…..mmmm restaurant scene is my favorite no-words-quote scene. I may or may not have tried this out with my husband. 😉 )

“All I’m saying is that somewhere out there is the man you are supposed to marry. And if you don’t get him first, somebody else will, and you’ll have to spend the rest of your life knowing that somebody else is married to your husband.”




“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”


“My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator.”





“You know what? Fuck beauty contests. Life is one fucking beauty contest after another. School, then college, then work… Fuck that. And fuck the Air Force Academy. If I want to fly, I’ll find a way to fly. You do what you love, and fuck the rest.”


“Half my life is over and I have nothing to show for it. Nothing. I’am thumbprint on the window of a skyscraper. I’m a smudge of excrement a tissue surging out to sea with a million tons of raw sewage.”


“Pardon my French, but Cameron is so tight that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass, in two weeks you’d have a diamond.”


“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends.”





” I’ve got a job to do, too. Where I’m going, you can’t follow. What I’ve got to do, you can’t be any part of. Ilsa, I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you’ll understand that.”
