Most of my quotations are from films that most people never quote from. I figure they deserve equal time. So, here are some from my film journal:
"You look like one of Santa's helpers."~Liza Minelli to Dudley Moore in "Arthur"
As his career wound down, Moore did play an elf in "Santa Claus", a big-budget film that did not do well. I guess I like the irony.
"Downloading's cool, but nothing beats vinyl."~Emma Roberts to Max Thieriot and Josh Flitter of old-style records in "Nancy Drew"
I feel the same way about my LP and 45 collection!
"Rock stars have kidnapped my son!"~Frances McDormand of Patrick Fugit to her class in "Almost Famous"
a) "That's a very awkward age for girls."
b) "What is?"
a) "Twelve through 35."
a) Paul Reiser and b) Matthew Modine in "Bye Bye, Love"
"You might as well like yourself. Think of all the time you're going to have to spend with you."~Jerry Lewis in "The Nutty Professor" (It's what the professor tells everyone after he transforms back from Buddy Love.)
"Sometimes when a woman leaves, she takes happiness with her. Sometimes when she leaves, she leaves happiness behind."~John Rhys-Davies giving relationship advice in "The Ferryman"
a) "You think you are funny, don't you?"
b) "I know I am. I'm the famous comedian Arnold Braunschweiger."
a) Austin O'Brien and b) Arnold Schwarzegger (as Jack Stark) in "Last Action Hero"
"There's no problem with building a dream castle unless you try moving into it."~Elke Sommer to Tony Bennett in "The Oscar"
"Don't you know that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few?! Don't you watch 'Star Trek'?"~Nicole Eggert to Michael Dorn (as alien) in "Amanda & the Alien"
Yes, irony strikes again!
"That's the second biggest zipper I've ever seen!"~Don Adams of zipper-entrance to mountain in "The Return of Maxwell Smart" aka "The Nude Bomb"
"Violence is the sign language of the inarticulate."~John Phillip Law in "Skidoo"
"Our best day's what we make it."~Angelina Jolie to Denzel Washington in "The Bone Collector"
"Actually, depravity can be terribly boring if you don't smoke or dirnk."~Audrey Hepburn to William Holden in "Paris ~ When It Sizzles"
"Get angry, darling! It gives you a dimple. Or, is it dirt?"~Robert Preston to Elizabeth Sellers in "Cloudburst"
"When you're being tortured, the first lie's the most important. You might not get to talk again."~Robert Preston to Harold Lang in "Cloudburst"
"Champagne! I love it! It tastes like your foot's asleep."~Joan Davis in "George White's Scandals"
