The Art Of Getting By
What were you like as a child?
I was such a better person than I am now.
Game of Thrones
What you suggest is treason.
Only if we lose.
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
That's what a ship is, you know. It's not just a keel, hull, deck and sails - that's what a ship needs - but what a ship is ... is freedom.
Middle Men
You know that most of the outside world is looking down on you, but you also know at the exact same time - if they were really honest with themselves - they'd kill to be on the inside with you.
Dead Like Me
I always thought I loved Halloween because I got to look behind all those closed doors, but now I see that it's because I was painted with something darker - that I was meant to see the dark, and through the dark.
The Princess Bride
Life is pain. Anyone who says differently is selling something.
Anybody who tries to tell you exactly who she was - they didn't know her at all.
I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You never know what hand you're going to get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you - to make each day count.
The Perfect Score
The poor little rich girl thing is a little played out don't you think? It's like the oldest story in the world isn't it?

Not if it's your story.
To live life to the fullest I require only enough to cover my modest expenses. I've no desire to be the richest stiff in the cemetary.
For most women if a guy's a good provider and generally a nice chap then six pack abs really aren't a dealbreaker.

On the flip side however, even though [your boyfriend] will deny it (and he will deny it) for us boys it's all about FBB. Face, boobs, bum. I'm just being honest.
The Beach
This became our world, and these people - our family. Back home was just one more place we didn't think about.
I don't want to feel like some ride you're taking, because I'm not - despite how I might advertise myself.
Ghosts of girlfriends past
If theres one thing family does it's believe - against all odds - in the best of each other.
Eagle eye
Sometimes the very measures we put into place to safeguard our liberty become threats to liberty itself.
Letterman Show
If you're not making the executives nervous you're not doing your job as an artist
We can have anything!

No we can't. We can aspire to anything, but we don't get it just because we want it. I would rather spend my life close to the birds than waste it wishing I had wings.
The Unusuals
You know what I realized recently? All the rich kids that I grew up with, I mean the really rich ones, they weren't kids but they weren't adults either. It's like this weird netherworld of no boundries - no responsibilities.

When I dropped out of college my parents gave me a car - they thought I was depressed! "Go to Europe" they said, "take some time". None of it mattered; as far as they were concerned I never had to be anything, so I grew up to be nothing.
The Unusuals
You know some people believe you have to apologize to God for the mistakes you've made.

God's not the one we hurt, it's each other.
Benny & Joon
You dont like raisins?

Not really.


They used to be fat and juicy and now theyre twisted; they had their life stolen. They taste sweet but really they're just humilitated grapes.
A Life Less Ordinary
You thought we had something?

It's possible.

But why ... why Robert? Why do we have something - we were getting along just fine. Having something ruins everything.
Quantum of Solace
I wish I could set you free, but your prison is [inside you].
His whole life he fought to free himself from fear
His failure towers over other mens successes
In Plain Sight
So why didn't you tell me?

Because I needed to make up my own mind, and that's not always an option with you.
Willie & Phil
You gotta promise me one thing - never tell me that you love me; just love me.
Let me ask you something - why are you alive?

I am alive, I live to safeguard the continuity of this great society. To serve libria.

It's circular, you exist to continue your existence what's the point?

What's the point of your existence?

To feel. Because you have never done it you can never know it, but it's as vital as breath. And without it, without anger, without love, without sorrow, breath is just a clock ticking.
Someone like you
Why can't you just let it go?

Because I was happy. Because if this theory is wrong men don't leave all women - they leave me!
Princess of thieves
That's what I used to say when my father went off to war, "It's not fair. Why does he love Richard more than his own daughter?". I didn't understand; it wasn't Richard he loved, it was something much bigger. Something he held inside himself like a priest carries his faith.
Slow Burn
I have this dream. I'm in a grocery store, just a regular grocery store. I wake up and my heart is pounding, because I don't belong there. Anyplace I go is a foreign country. I never been to a dance. I never been to a library. I never had a phone number. I never been in a swimming pool. I never... never...
A Piece of my Heart
I'm sorry.

For what?

For the way I treated you ... and for telling you I'd make you happy and breaking that promise.

I chose to come out here, and I chose to stay with you - probably longer than I should have. But it all comes down to choice and my happiness is not for you to promise.
Sarah Connor Chronicles
True evil doesn't give us time to fight or be afraid.
I've never been a good sharer. Not that I was a brat, I always pretended like I could share but I never liked it, truthfully. Does anyone really like it? I mean, come on - it's hard not to feel like you're giving something away when you're sharing. How weird is it that when you grow up you're supposed to feel all complete because you're sharing your whole life with someone else.
I always thought responsibilities were the death of dreams.
My Little Pony was the end of western civilization. I don't know why, something about the reduction of the epic to the quotidian. The unicorn, the battlesteed, a world of adventure reduced to a little purple piece of plastic with hair you can comb. Did the people who made those things understand the magic they were asking us to give up?
A job is where you check your soul at the door and do the bidding of people who are trying to exploit humanity. Where you give up your dignity in order to help strip others of theirs; where your greatest asset is inauthenticity. That's a job.
Grey's anatomy
Should we say a prayer?

She didn't believe in anything.
A Scanner Darkly
Yeah but to sacrifice someone ... a living person without them ever knowing it ... I mean if he'd understood ... if he had volunteered ... but he doesn't know and he never did.
You, Me & Dupree
Well Carl, I don't always know what I'm doing either but we're in this together - when its good, when its bad. Carl, I know who you are and I love who you are, that's why we dont walk out on each other.
A little boy, that's all he is. Just a child.

But to the vampire girl, he's a glass of water in the desert, taken away before she could drink.
Cannonball Run

Why what?

Why all this speed and trouble and risk... I mean what for?

For the hell of it. Didn't you ever do anything just for the hell of it?
A Beautiful Mind
Seems that you won after all, Martin.

They were wrong John, no one wins.
Final Fantasy, the spirits within
Doctor, there is a war going on - no one is young anymore.
A good woman
I like America! Name me another society that's gone from barbarism to decadence without bothering to create a civilization in between.

A tribute to American efficiency.
A good woman
Can you imagine what people would say?

Well, if we're always guided by other people's thoughts, what's the point of having our own?
X-Men 2
So... what are they?

They're angelic symbols. Passed on to mankind by the archangel Gabriel.

They're beautiful. How many do you have?

One for every sin, so quite a few.
You can't make it in.

Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Haven't you been paying attention?
Killing is what I do - it's what I'm good at.
Well yes, there is an antidote; and yes when I get the boy, isolate the antigen, and release it into the atmosphere anyone who wants to live will queue up daily at this door to get it.

I thought we were the ones you hated.
I thought we were the ones you were trying to wipe out.

That's the problem - you were - past tense.
Now that you, and those like you, are all but extinct, what's someone like me - someone with a job to do - going to use to keep order in a society that, left to itself, would sprint toward chaos like an olympic event?
We did our job too well.
Now, must we make amends.

You disgust me.

It's a relative term, Violet.
Only then does he realize that wanting part of her - and not all of her - had hurt them both, and how he cannot justify his actions, except that... well... it was life.
From Dusk Till Dawn
Don't you believe in God anymore?

Not enough to be a pastor.
Look, I know this is hard on you kids. After Jenny's death this is probably the last thing you need, but my congregation needs spiritual leadership. Well, my faith is gone. To answer your question, I do believe in Jesus. Yes, I do believe in God, but do I love them? No.

Well it's just that... all our lives you've been a pastor, and then one day, you're just gonna wake up and say 'F*** Him'?

I didn't say 'F*** Him'.
Rumor has it
I love you.
I didn't come here to tell you that I can't live without you.
I can live without you. I just don't want to.
Rumor has it
Life should be a little nuts.
Otherwise, it's just a bunch of... Thursdays, strung together.
Lord of War
Hey, you trust me, right?
She looked me directly in the eye, the way I've looked in the eyes of a thousand customs officials, government bureaucrats, and law enforcement agents..
Yes, I trust you. [kisses him]
.. And she lied without flinching.
She learned from the best.
Lord of War
I know you Yuri, I know you're not everything you seem.
Don't worry, I wont ask a lot of questions - I don't want to hear you lie.
Lord of War
Ava knows, right?
She doesn't have to know, she understands.
Dune (2000)
You see her standing there, so haughty, so confident - let us hope she finds solace in her writing and her books, she'll have little else.
She may have my son's name, but it is we - the ones who carry the name of concubine, that history will call wives.
You wanna be making moves on the street - have no attachments, allow nothing to be in your life that you cannot walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner.
The Crow
He said, your childhood is over the moment you know you're going to die.
Scud, I don't know how this happened to me but... being bad doesn't feel good anymore..

Do you love her?


You willing to give up all this ... life of crime, the whole nine yards?

Whatever it takes.
Once Upon a Time in Mexico
The bull is wounded.
The bull is tired before the matador ever steps into the ring. Now, is that victory?
Of course it is.
Want to know the secret to winning? Creative sportsmanship.
In other words ... one has to rig the game.
Victoria and I are not big on asking questions; figure when a person is ready they'll give their answers.
And we would really like for you to come with us... because that's what families do... they stick together.
In the market, those men were fighting, you knew that, right?


But that didn't bother you?


You weren't afraid?

You know the Greeks didn't write obituaries ... they only asked one question after a man died - did he have passion?
Star Wars Episode V
I ... I don't believe it!
That is why you fail.
The Interpreter
Everyone who loses somebody wants revenge on someone - on God if they can't find anyone else.
The Interpreter
Vengeance is a lazy form of grief.
Star Wars Episode II
Well, mentors have a way of seeing more of our faults than we would like - it's the only way we grow.
Star Wars Episode III
Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.
Star Wars Episode III
So this is how liberty dies - with thunderous applause...
Emperor's Club
A great teacher has little external history to record. His life goes over into other lives. These men are pillars in the intimate structure of our schools. They are more essential than its stones or beams, and they will continue to be a kindling force and a revealing power in our lives.
What kind of business are you in?

We predict the future. The best way to predict the future... is to invent it.
Memory, like fire, is radiant and immutable. While history serves only those who seek to control it, those who would douse the flame of memory in order to put out the dangerous fire of truth. Beware of these men for they are dangerous themsleves and unwise. Their false history is written in the blood of those who might remember and those who seek the truth.
How did that happen?
How did you do that?

Do what?
I wasn't even there.

Yes you were.
You were so there.
I know there's something beautiful in all my imperfections.
A Few Good Men
You don't need to wear a patch on your arm to have honor.
Cable Guy
I am the bastard son of Claire Huxtable!
I am the lost Cunningham!
I learned the facts of life from The Facts of Life!
Don't you get it?
Someone has to save all the other cable boys and girls, someone has to kill the babysitter.
Don't let your brain interfere with your heart.
I would rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right.
Simply Irresistible
A man's character is his destiny.
Simply Irresistible
It's the love that turns into magic once in a full moon
When you came here you were filled with anger.
All the decency you once had - poisoned by violence and tragedy.
It's the only way to leave - "I don't love you anymore, goodbye".

Supposing you do still love them?

You don't leave.
She expressed regret that she had to ask me to deal with the basic question of my life at such a young age
and then .. she asked it - "Is what you want for yourself... to become someone very different than me"?
After The Sunset
i helped you because i love you, but now im leaving you.
Notting Hill
The thing is, I have to go away today, but I wondered.. if I didnt, whether you might let me see you a little.. or a lot maybe.. see if you could like me again..


Anna look, I'm a fairly level-headed bloke, not often in and out of love, but can I just say no to your fine request?

Yes. Fine, of course... well I'll just be going then, it was nice to see you.

The thing is, with you, I'm in real danger, it seems like a perfect situation, but my relatively inexperienced heart would, I fear, not recover, if I was once more cast aside, as I would absolutely expect to be.

That really is real no, isn't it...

I live in Notting hill, you live in Beverly hills. Everyone in the world knows who you are, my mother has trouble remembering my name.

Fine..fine.. good decision.. good decision..
The fame thing isn't really real you know.
And don't forget I'm also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her...
Notting Hill
"For June, who loved this garden -
from Joseph, who always sat beside her."
Some people do spend their whole lives together.
Notting Hill
You see, I think you've forgotten what an unusual situation you two have.

To find someone you actually love, who will love you... the chances are always minuscule.
Notting Hill
Rita Hayworth used to say "They go to bed with Gilda, they wake up with me."

Who's Gilda?

Her most famous part. Men went to bed with the dream, they didn't like it when they woke up with reality. Do you feel that way?

You are lovelier this morning than you have ever been.
Notting Hill
One day, not long from now, my looks will go.
They will discover I can't act, and I will become some sad middle-aged woman, who looks a bit like someone who was famous for a while.
Raise Your Voice
Look, I don't know what you're going through, but I do know from experience that backing down can become a way of life.
If you show someone their future, they have no future.
I could have my own children
And I would kiss them every day...tell them "You don't have to be anybody" because I would know that being somebody doesn't make you anybody anyway.
Life is so disappointing. Here you are, you have arrived, you are here, this is your moment. What do you have? You have pain. And when you have everything, what do you have? You have nothing. And everything is right, everything is wrong. It's disappointing, it's confusing. This is life, what can you do?

People keep going away from me, that hurts.

Work, work, you have a gift, use it. will be there later, when you have worked, and you have lived, and you know who you are, life is easy. Work it's the only answer i know.
Under Suspicion
My looks are entirely ordinary, and I'm no genius. Mediocre people tolerate success when it comes to someone exceptional, like a movie star or an athlete, but when it comes to one of their own, then it strikes them as being an injustice.
There is something here, something evil.

Sarah, it is so much easier to believe in evil as an entity, but it's not, it's a purely human condition inside all of us.
Full Clip
I was thinking about finishing out nursing school, so I could come back and help around here. There's just something about changing lives, touching people, it just fulfills me in a way I cant even really explain. It's beautiful.

That's cool.

What fulfills you?

I don't know.
Meet Joe Black
But Allison loves you?
How do you know?
Because she knows the worst thing about me, and it's ok.
Meet Joe Black
I love her.

How perfect for you, to take whatever you want because it pleases you. It's not love.

What is it?

Some aimless infatuation which, for the moment, you feel like indulging. You're missing everything that matters.

Which is what?

Trust, responsibility, taking the weight for your choices and feelings, and spending the rest of your life living up to them, and above all - not hurting the object of your love.
First Daughter
Imagine never being alone and always feeling lonely.
First Daughter
He must be proud of you.

If he was he definitely wouldn't say so.

Let's say you do please your father, and you are completely successful and completely self-reliant, and you know that he's proud of you.
Then what?
It's tough to imagine, right? Because then you'd have to actually figure out who you were.
First Daughter
I've spent almost my entire life with people smiling at me and laughing at my jokes, telling me how special I am and great I am, and how nice and smart. And right now, I don't know if any of that was true. Maybe it was all some kind of an act. I don't know. What if I was different, what if I was just like everybody else.
Raising Helen
Dear Jenny,
If you are reading this you know that I am gone and I asked Helen to be the guardian for the kids, and you're probably freaked about it.
Yes, it's a surprising choice, considering that you are the most incredible mother I've ever known.
If you find this letter odd, understand that my "always be prepared" Paul convinced me to write it now, while our children are young.
You must know from experience that when comes to picking someone else to raise your kids no one seems right, no one is you.
But you choose someone who is most like you.
Someone that will give the kids a taste of their real mom.
The mom they lost and never really got to know.
In so many ways we are so much alike, that's why I chose Helen.
Of course she'll have lots of fights with the kids, yet she'll find a way to make up.
I know, sometimes she messes things up and makes big mistakes.
On the other hand, she also makes big comebacks.
Respect her Jenny, and give her a shot.
We're family and I'm counting on you to keep everyone together.
I know, Helen will certainly need some help learning how to be a mother to my kids, but I've got you for that, and who could be better?
Seeing Other People
You seem sad.

I seem sad? You're the one that's crying.

No, I mean really sad.
Win A Date With Tad Hamilton
When great love is rejected, something inside a man dies.
So all he can do is run away; or he can meet the girl he loves second-most, unless you can get to him before he closes the book on you.
But once its closed, it's closed.
Con Air
Two went down, one came up.

It wasn't my fault.

Well you don't have to tell me. Most murders are crimes of necessity rather than desire, but the great ones, Dahmer, Gacy, Bundy, they did it because it excited them.

Don't you.. I got nothin' in common with them.. with you.. don't you talk to me! They were insane.

Now you're talking semantics. What if I told you insane was working fifty hours a week in some office for fifty years, at the end of which they tell you to piss off? Ending up in some retirement village, hoping to die before suffering the indignity of trying to make it to the toilet on time? Wouldn't you consider that to be insane?
Resident Evil: Apocalypse
Why didn't they see us?
The chopper. We were right there on the street in front of the hospital, how could they not see us?
They saw us.
What do you mean?
We're assets Nicholai, expendable assets, and we've just been expended.
Alien Vs. Predator
You know when you get sick you think about your life, and how you're going to be remembered.
You know what I realize will happen when I go? Ten-percent drop in share prices, maybe twelve, and thats it.

I've heard this speech before.
My dad broke his leg seven hundred feet from the summit of Mount Rainier. He was like you, he wouldn't let us go back or stop.
We reached the top and he opened a bottle of champagne. I had my first drink with my dad at 14,400 feet.
On the way down he developed a blood clot in his leg that traveled to his lung. He suffered for four hours before dying twenty minutes from the base.

Do you think that's the last thing your dad remembers? The pain? Or drinking champagne with his daughter at fourteen thousand feet in the air?
I need this.
Cruel Intentions
You were very much in love with her, and you're still in love with her, but it amused me to make you ashamed of it.
You gave up on the first person you ever loved because i threatened your reputation.
And now you've completely blown it with her.
I think its the saddest thing I've ever heard.
Ella Enchanted
You're about to become king. You'll have the power to make a difference in the world and you don't even care.

It's not like i asked to become king, I've had no say in the matter.
The Village
Are you not angry that you have no sight?
I see the world, just not as you see it.
The Village
How could you have sent her? She's blind.
Shes more capable than most of us, and shes led by love. The world moves for love, it kneels before it in awe.
The Village
I hope I am always able to risk everything for the just and right cause.
The Village
What makes you think he has feelings for me?
He never touches you.
You can be free, and freedom is power.
The Perfect Score
You know a lot of people think these questions are difficult... not me.
Nah..these questions all have answers.
The Perfect Score
I was thinking someday I might wanna be an actor.
As opposed to solving world hunger or curing a terminal disease?
See what i mean?
I would run an animal shelter or..I would just be a mom.
.. not just a mother. I would be a real mom. Ya know, one that cared more about the title 'parent' than the one on her business card.
Uptown Girls
He's a vegetable now, soon he'll be nothing.
That's kind of harsh..
It's a harsh world.
Uptown Girls
Other people always let you down.
Why don't you forget about them and do something for yourself?
Go be a teenager, it ends too soon and gets replaced by ribbons and lampshades.
The Breakfast Club
Dear Mr. Vernon,

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did WAS 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 us. In the simplest terms, by the most convienient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basketcase, a princess, and a criminal. Does that answer your question?

Sincerely yours,
The Breakfast Club
The Breakfast Club
So whats wrong?
What is it?
Is it bad? Real bad? Parents?
What do they do to you?
They ignore me...
Yeah... yeah.
Fight Club
Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes,
working jobs we hate,
so we can buy **** we don't need.
We're the middle children of history man,
no purpose or place
we have no great war,
no great depression.
Our great war is a spiritual war,
our great depression... is our lives.
Fight Club
You are not your job.
You are not the clothes you wear.
You are not how much money you have in the bank.
You are not the car you drive.
You are not your bowel cancer.
You are not your Grande Latte
You are not your ******* Khakis.
Fight Club
You have to give up
You have to realize that some day you will die.
Until you know that, you are useless.
