Totally Awesome!

“She is the only evidence of God I have seen with the exception of the mysterious force that removes one sock from the dryer every time I do my laundry.”  St. Elmo’s Fire (1985)

“There are several quintessential moments in a man's life: losing his virginity, getting married, becoming a father, and having the right girl smile at you.”  St. Elmo’s Fire (1985)

“Loosen up, have some fun! Yes, sleep when you feel like it, not when you think you should. Eat food that is bad for you - at least once in a while. Have conversations with people whose clothes are not color coordinated. Make love in a hammock! Life is the ultimate experience, and you have to live it to write about it.”  The Sure Thing (1985)

“Walter (Gib) Gibson
: Elliot? You're gonna name the kid Elliot? No, you can't name the kid Elliot. Elliot is a fat kid with glasses who eats paste. You're not gonna name the kid Elliot. You gotta give him a real name. Give him a name. Like Nick.
Alison Bradbury: Nick?
Walter (Gib) Gibson: Yeah, Nick. Nick's a real name. Nick's your buddy. Nick's the kind of guy you can trust, the kind of guy you can drink a beer with, the kind of guy who doesn't mind if you puke in his car, Nick!”  The Sure Thing (1985)

“Chris Knight
: So, if there's anything I can do for you, or, more to the point, to you, you just let me know.
Susan: Can you hammer a six-inch spike through a board with your penis?
Chris Knight: Not right now.
Susan: A girl's gotta have her standards.”  Real Genius (1985)

Nancy: I hate my fuckin' life.
Sid: This is just a rough patch. Things'll be much better when we get to America, I promise.
Nancy: We're in America. We've been here a week. New York is in America, you fuck.”  Sid and Nancy (1986)

John Bender: You're right. It's wrong to destroy literature. It's such fun to read. And
John Bender: Moe-Lay really pumps my nads.
Claire Standish: Moliere.”  The Breakfast Club (1985)

Sam Emerson: Look at your reflection in the mirror. You're a creature of the night Michael, just like out of a comic book! You're a vampire Michael! My own brother, a goddamn, shit-sucking vampire. You wait 'till mom finds out, buddy!”  The Lost Boy (1987)

Inigo Montoya: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”  The Princess Bride (1987)

“Dark Helmet
: What's the matter, Colonel Sandurz? CHICKEN?”  Spaceballs (1987)

“Dark Helmet
: Before you die there is something you should know about us, Lone Star.
Lone Starr: What?
Dark Helmet: I am your father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate.
Lone Starr: What's that make us?
Dark Helmet: Absolutely nothing! Which is what you are about to become.”  Spaceballs (1987)

What quotes make you laugh, think, smile, etc.? 


  1. Good question, here are some quotes that I liked:

    Red Will Danaher: “He'll regret it till his dying day, if ever he lives that long.” The Quiet Man (1952)

    Mary Kate Danaher: “Could you use a little water in your whiskey?”
    Michaleen Flynn: “When I drink whiskey, I drink whiskey; and when I drink water, I drink water.” The Quiet Man (1952)

    Hugo Drax: “Look after Mr. Bond, see that some harm comes to him.” Moonraker (1979):

    Rex: ”Is it possible?”
    Miles Massey: “It's a challenge.” Intolerable Cruelty (2003)

    Jimmy Dugan: “Well I was just wonderin' why you would throw home when we got a two-run lead. You let the tying run get on second base and we lost the lead because of you. Start using your head. That's the lump that's three feet above your ass”
    [Evelyn starts to cry]
    Jimmy Dugan: “Are you crying? Are you crying? ARE YOU CRYING? There's no crying! THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!”
    Doris Murphy: “Why don't you give her a break, Jimmy...”
    Jimmy Dugan: “Oh, you zip it, Doris! Rogers Hornsby was my manager, and he called me a talking pile of pigshit. And that was when my parents drove all the way down from Michigan to see me play the game. And did I cry?”
    Evelyn Gardner: “No, no, no”.
    Jimmy Dugan: “Yeah! NO. And do you know why?”
    Evelyn Gardner: “No...”
    Jimmy Dugan: “Because there's no crying in baseball. THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL! No crying!” A League of Their Own (1992)

  2. OH VEEJAY! I forgot the Quiet Man! One of my favorite movies.

    Thornton: There'll be no locks or bolts between us, Mary Kate... except those in your own mercenary little heart!

  3. My goodness. There are so many, but now I'm getting a hankering to torture my husband with St Elmo's Fire again... Rob Lowe pretending to play the sax... nothing better than that if you ask me. :D

  4. LOL! OMG! Hinny, I forgot about Rob Lowe playing the sax. It looked soooo believable. *rolls eyes*

  5. Loved them! I love any Princess Bride Quotes & shamefully, The Three Amigos.
    "Would you like to kiss me on the veranda?"
    "Lips would be fine." ;)

  6. I can totally see you liking The Three Amigos. Fer Sure.
