Romancing Canada's Indigenous People

I thought I’d do something simple for my last post of the year.  The title says it all.  I put the quotes under the cut since there is some strong language.



“Can you dig it!” – Cyrus, the Warriors

“I’m a rocker.  I’m a roller.  I’m an out of controller.”  –The Nightrider, Mad Max

“Greetings from the Humungus.  The Lord Humungus.  The warrior of the wasteland.  The ayatollah of rock and rolla.” –The Toady, Mad Max II (Road Warrior)

“I never fucked anybody over in my life didn’t have it coming to them.  You got that?  All I have in this world is my balls and my word and I don’t break them for no one.  Do you understand?” –Tony Montana, Scarface

“WHAT?  You went over my helmet?” –Dark Helmet, Spaceballs

“You’re 10 seconds away from the most embarrassing moment of your life.” –Ford Fairlane, The Adventures of Ford Fairlane

“All right, knock this shit off!  I HAVE BEEN HAVING A VERY BAD DAY!  I just got out of jail this morning!  Already I’ve been shot at, I was on a bus that flipped over seventeen times, bitch tried to stab me in the bathroom, and somebody blew up my Porsche!  I am in a BAD goddamn mood!” –Reggie Hammond, Another 48 Hours

“This guy could fuck up a cup of coffee.” –Nicky Santoro, Casino

“And then there was Jimmy Two Times, who got that nickname because he said everything twice, like, ‘I’m gonna go get the papers, get the papers.’” –Henry Hill, Goodfellas

“Sometimes they have to kill us.  They have to kill us because they can’t break our spirit.” –Jimmy Looks Twice, Thunderheart

“The only thing that scares me, Mr. O’Connell, are your manners.” –Evy Carnahan, the Mummy

“I’m not crazy; I’ve just been in a very bad mood for the last 40 years!” –Ouiser Boudreaux, Steel Magnolias

How about you?  What are some of your fave movie quotes?

  2. Left-Brained Business for Write-Brained People says:

    My favorite is kind of long, and it’s really the third to the last sentence in this quote, but I need to put in the whole quote so that it’s in context to show why I love it so much.

    “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here – that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?”
    ~ John Keating (Robin Williams) from Dead Poets’ Society

    …that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse.

    Thanks for giving me a reason for thinking about this again, Maggie.


    1. That is a really nice quote. I never saw this movie before. The fifth line is beautiful.
