    ROMY & MICHELE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION (1997) did you guys know I'm working on a time machine so I can go back to 1988 and see the stage play this movie is based on?
  3. 3.
    Why y'all gotta waste my flava, damn!
    CANT HARDLY WAIT (1998) Seth Green is so perfect as Kenny... which makes it surprising to know he actually auditioned for the role of vengeful nerd William

    It's a dinglehopper. Humans use these babies to straighten their hair out. See? Just a little twirl here and a yank there and voilá, you've got an aesthetically pleasing configuration of hair that humans go nuts over.

    Look, you're my best friend, so don't take this the wrong way. In twenty years, if you're still living here, coming to my house to watch the Patriots games, still working construction, I'll fucking kill you. That's not a threat, now, that's a fact. I'll fucking kill you.
    GOOD WILL HUNTING (1997) I've told my friends to good will hunting me but nobody takes me seriously. Guess I need to be friends w Ben Affleck if I'm gonna get any motivation
  11. 11.
    I would like to say this. Tardiness is not something you can do on your own. Many, many people have contributed to my tardiness. I would like to thank my parents for never giving me a ride to school, the LA city bus driver who took a chance on an unknown kid,
    and last but not least, the wonderful crew from McDonald's who spend hours making those egg mcmuffins without which I'd never be tardy. CLUELESS (1995)
  12. 12.
    There's a difference between like and love. Because, I like my Skechers, but I LOVE my Prada back pack.
    10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU (1999) product placement at its finest: I bought Skechers right after this movie came out and I loved them but that's only because I didn't have a Prada back pack or a solid sense of style.
  13. 13.
    Yo dude! You obviously in the wrong hood. This is my dominion and it's a drug free zone. You understand? Now, I'm feeling generous today. So I'm gonna let you get your sorry vanilla booty out of here before we be using your eyeballs as hockey pucks!
    THE MIGHTY DUCKS (1992) Emilio Estevez is visibly cracking up in the background in this scene when they play hockey. I'd be laughing, too, these kids are squad goals
  14. 14.
    It was sort of sweet actually, I mean, I know she's an actress and all that so she can deliver a line, but she said that she might be famous as can be, but also... That she was just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her... Oh, sod a dog. I've made the wrong decision, haven't I?
    NOTTING HILL (1999) Hello I'm waiting... I want a movie star to fall in love with me, too.
  15. 15.
    Let me get this straight. You know her. She knows you. But she wants to eat him. And everybody's okay with this? Did I miss something?

    I wish I knew how to quit you.
    BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN (2005) I said this to Jake Gyllenhaal IRL but he didn't hear me because I couldn't get words out because omg
  18. 18.
    The point that I totally realized that, you know? Fate. There is fate. But it only takes you so far, because once you're there, it's up to you to make it happen.
    CAN'T HARDLY WAIT (1998) this quote resonates so hard and I repeat it when it's time to make moves
  19. 19.
    I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floating around accidental like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it's both. Maybe both is happening at the same time.
    FORREST GUMP (1994) the feather isn't real, shh
  20. 20.
    For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay your welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.
    THE BEACH (2000) easier said than done but such great words to live by
  21. 21.

    UP (2009) squirrel!
  24. 24.
    I want you to draw me like one of your French girls
    TITANIC (1997) the hand doing all the drawing in this scene actually belongs to James Cameron because this man can do everything
  25. 25.
    This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
    THE MATRIX (1999) if you pretend the sequels don't exist then this is a very good movie

    Has God heard your little prayer? Will Cinderella dance again? And then, suddenly, the crowds part and there he is: sleek, stylish, radiant with charisma. Bizarrely, he's on the telephone. But then, so are you. And then he comes towards you, the moves of a jungle cat. Although you quite correctly sense that he is..
    gay... Like most devastatingly had some single men of his age are, you think... What the hell. Life goes on. Maybe there won't be marriage... Maybe there won't be sex... But, by God, there'll be dancing! MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING (1997)
  29. 29.
    You're the perfect verse over a tight beat.
    BROWN SUGAR (2002)

    As we grow older, it becomes difficult to just believe. It's not that we don't want to but too much has happened and we can't.
    NOW AND THEN (1995) This movie expects us to believe that Christina Ricci grows up to be Rosie O'Donnell but too much has happened and we can't.

    Afterward, the 700 people left in the boats had nothing to do but wait... wait to die, wait to live, wait for an absolution, which would never come.

    I feel like men are more romantic than women. When we get married, we marry, like, one girl, cuz we're resistant the whole way until we meet one girl and we think "I'd be an idiot if I didn't marry this girl. She's so great".
    But it seems like girls get to a place where they just kinda pick the best option... "Oh, he's got a good job". I mean, they spend their whole life looking for Prince Charming and then they marry the guy who's got a good job and is gonna stick around. BLUE VALENTINE (2010) hey girl, this one's deep

  40. 40.
    Larson: "What did you do?" McGill: "My job."

    It must be really hard for you, Victoria. Ya know, tryin to decide whether to wear the little Gucci dress, the little Gucci dress, OR the little Gucci dress.
    SPICE WORLD (1997) most people don't understand this film. I'm not most people.

    ANIMAL HOUSE (1978) "Toga! Toga!" is #82 on AFI's 100 Years 100 Movie Quotes but this is the line that made me LOL the most as a youngin'

  46. 46.
    Even if they live in tiny old attics, even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty, or smart, or young, they're still princesses - all of us! Didn't your father ever tell you that? Didn't he?
    A LITTLE PRINCESS (1995) This is why no one dares accuse a woman of not being a princess.
  47. 47.
    The truth is now I don't travel back at all, not even for the day, I just try to live life as if I've deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was final full day of my extraordinary ordinary life.

  51. 51.
    I still believe in paradise. But now at least I know it's not something you can look for. Because it's not where you go. It's how you feel for a moment in your life when you're a part of something. And if you find that moment... it lasts forever.
    THE BEACH (2000) still looking, Leo, still looking
  52. 52.

  53. 53.
    We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday but as the day the world declared in one voice: We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!
    INDEPENDENCE DAY (1996) except America didn't have to fight for independence more than once, here's to hoping the aliens attack on the exact same day in Independence Day: Resurgence
  54. 54.
    Attachment is forbidden. Possession is forbidden. Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is essential to a Jedi's life. So you might say, we are encouraged to love.
    STAR WARS EPISODE VII: ATTACK OF THE CLONES (2002) I'm sorry for this one, please don't stop reading. This line perfectly explains Anakin's entire rationality and Padmé believes him so...
  55. 55.
    Well that's what we do, we fight... You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing.
    THE NOTEBOOK (2004) fun fact: the book is nowhere near as amazing as the movie
  56. 56.

  57. 57.
    Boo, you whore!
    MEAN GIRLS (2004) I know Tina Fey told us to stop calling eachother sluts and whores because it makes it ok for men to do so but this line is just too perfect.
  58. 58.
    JUST ONCE I would like to go the distance!
    TROOP BEVERLY HILLS (1989) I can neither confirm nor deny that this line inspired the Michael Bolton hit from Hercules
  59. 59.
    Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see is - in the simplest terms. In the most convenient definitions.

    Now Sid, don't you blame the movies. Movies don't create psychos. Movies make psychos more creative!
    SCREAM (1996) if it wasn't for star Drew Barrymore dying in the first scene of this iconic film, Ned Stark probably would've made it through season 1. (I maybe made this fact up but think about it)
  67. 67.
    Oh god, this is one of those key moments in life, when it's possible you can be really, genuinely cool, and I'm failing 100%. I absolutely and totally and utterly adore you and I think you're the most beautiful woman in the world and more importantly
    I believe and have believed for some time now that we can be best friends. What do you think? NOTTING HILL (1999) incidentally, exactly what I'll say to Julia Roberts if I ever meet her
  68. 68.
    It's a trip, you know? When you're a kid, you see the life you want, and it never crosses your mind that it's not gonna turn out that way.

  69. 69.

  72. 72.
    I'll tell you a riddle. You're waiting for a train. A train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you; but you don't know for sure. But it doesn't matter. How can it not matter to you where that train will take you?

  79. 79.
    Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me.
    Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life. EASY A (2010) but for real, though
  80. 80.
    I am a nice shark, not a mindless eating machine. If I am to change this image, I must first change myself. Fish are friends, not food.

    This big blue book and opened up to New York and it's an island, is really what it is. It's this island full of people of different colors and different ideas and I can't- It sounds like a lot of fun to me. You know, we don't see much of that in Blaine.

  87. 87.
    Now it happened that the trees began to die out. The mighty beasts who seemed to rule the earth were, in truth, ruled by the leaf. Out of desperation, some of the herds ventured out west, in search of the Great Valley, a land still lush and green. It was a journey towards life.
    THE LAND BEFORE TIME (1988) this movie is what gives me hope that I could survive an apocalypse
  88. 88.
    We accept the reality of the world with which we're presented. It's as simple as that.
    THE TRUMAN SHOW (1998) the movie that caused a generation to narcissistically think that their life was a TV show. No? Just me and the Kardashians, then? Ok.
  89. 89.
    I'm so sorry, I fuckin' hate this job. I don't want to be the one to pass judgement, decide who gets in. Shit makes me sick to my stomach, I get the runs from the stress. It's not cause you're not hot, I would love to tap that ass. I would tear that ass up. I can't let you in cause you're old as fuck. For this club, you know, not for the earth.
    KNOCKED UP (2007)
  90. 90.
    I have a question, you probably get this a lot. Is this the real Caesar's Palace?

    SUNSET BOULEVARD (1950)
