These are great! My favorites from Drity Hair were always "Make my day." and "Think of all those people looking up."

R.G. ALEXANDER said...

Awesome list!! We are a house that speaks in movie quotes-and you picked a lot of our favorites :)
Happy TT!

Shelley Munro said...

Lots of my favorites here. It's funny how the quotes end up in everyday language.

Barefootbelle said...

My pick from Star Wars would have had to be "It was the truth. From a certain perspective." In the end that makes more sense than, "I know." which is probably my favorite line ever.

Gina Ardito said...

I use "I'm walkin' here!" all the time. (Complete with heavy NY accent)
Terrific list, Gwen!

Tempest Knight said...

"This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship" from Casablanca;.
Or my fav. "You know how to whistle don't you Steve? You just put your lips together and blow"
(from "To Have or Have Not")

Savannah Chase said...

oh these are classics...

Great T13

Gwen Mitchell said...

Hehe... ooh, those are good too. It was hard to choose, actually. I had about 25 and had to pare it down. I tried to spread them out over several decades. =P

Dana Belfry said...

Ohhh thats a great list. I'll have to watch some of those again!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Hey, Gwen! Those are TOTAL classics.

Want one of my favorites? It's from The Lost Boys, which is one of those movies I've seen a jillion times.

"Death by stereo."

It's from when the one vamp falls into the stereo and gets electrocuted... I don't know. I use it a lot. Weird, huh?

Gwen said...

Not weird! That movie's a classic too! =P
