FAVORITE MOVIE QUOTES AND WHY

  1. "Do you spend time with your family? Good. Because a man that doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man." -The Godfather
    Because every man must have a code.
  2. "I always find the fish, always! And I will this time. So don't fuck with me!" -The Perfect Storm
    I think about this one all the time at work. Quit nay-saying! Just let the man do his job! (and lead them to their certain death)
  3. "When you go up to talk to her, man, I don't want you to be the guy in the PG-13 movie everyone's really hopin' makes it happen. I want you to be like the guy in the rated R movie, you know, the guy you're not sure whether or not you like yet. You're not sure where he's coming from. Okay? You're a bad man. You're a bad man. Bad man." -Swingers
    This movie made me want to write comedy and tell stories for a living
  4. "Hey, if anything happens to me, you tell every woman I’ve ever gone out with that I was talking about her at the end. That way they’ll have to re-evaluate me." -Broadcast News
    Because Albert Brooks is a genius and even before I was old enough to date I could relate to this one.
  5. "Oh, he's just like any other man, only more so." -Casblanca
    Describing Captain Renault - but it always makes me smirk
  6. "I need you to make me ugly." -The 25th Hour
    The first line of one of the final scenes that is both horrifying and a beautiful show of friendship
  7. "I'm the guy who does his job. You must be the other guy." -The Departed
    Another work one
  8. "What one man can do another can do!" -The Edge
    David Mamet writes a film where Alec Baldwin and Anthony Hopkins are being chased by a bear. And today - Hopkins is gonna kill the motherfucker.
  9. "Oh, this is the best pizza in a cup ever. This guy is unbelievable. He ran the old Cup 'o Pizza guy out of business. People come from all over to eat this." -The Jerk
    Obscure, but Steve Martin is the best
  10. "I can't see anything I don't like about you." "But you will! You will think of things and I'll get bored with you and feel trapped because that's what happens with me." "Ok." "Ok." -Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    It starts out weird, funny and visually compelling and then suddenly it's a beautifully honest slice of life
  11. "Doing stuff is overrated. Like Hitler. He did a lot. But don't we all wish he woulda just stayed home and gotten stoned?" -The Tao of Steve
    This movie was our bible on how to pick up women in high school
  12. "You're not perfect, sport, and let me save you the suspense: this girl you've met, she's not perfect either. But the question is whether or not you're perfect for each other." -Good Will Hunting
    Cause that's what it's all about
