Day Twenty-One: Favorite Movie Quote

Day Twenty-One: Favorite Movie Quote

So many to choose from!

Here are 21 movie quotes I love, instead.


(The Princess Bride)

Inigo Montoya: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.


Westley: Give us the gate key.
Yellin: I have no gate key.
Inigo Montoya: Fezzik, tear his arms off.
Yellin: Oh, you mean this gate key.

~and so many more~


(John Carpenter's Halloween)

Dr. Sam Loomis: I met him, fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no conscience, no understanding; even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, good or evil, right or wrong. I met this six-year-old child, with this blank, pale, emotionless face and, the blackest eyes... the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... evil.


Sheriff Brackett: It's Halloween, everyone's entitled to one good scare.


Laurie: It was the boogeyman.
Dr. Loomis: As a matter of fact, it was.

(Friday the 13th)

Crazy Ralph: Doomed! You're all doomed!

Count Dracula: Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make.

Buddy: He's an angry elf.
(Christmas Vacation)

Clark: Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?
Eddie: Naw, I'm doing just fine, Clark.


Bethany: Don't throw me down, Clark.
Clark: I'll try not to, Aunt Bethany.


Clark: Russ, we checked every bulb, didn't we?
Rusty: Sure, Dad.
Clark: Hmm... Maybe we ought to just go up there and check...
Rusty: Oh, woo. Look at the time. I gotta get to bed. I still gotta brush my teeth, feed the hog, still got some homework to do, still got those bills to pay, wash the car...



Norman Bates: We all go a little mad sometimes.


(Rear Window)

Jeff: Why would a man leave his apartment three times on a rainy night with a suitcase and come back three times?
Lisa: He likes the way his wife welcomes him home.
Stella: Intelligence. Nothing has caused the human race so much trouble as intelligence.
(Arsenic and Old Lace)
Mortimer Brewster: Look I probably should have told you this before but you see... well... insanity runs in my family... It practically gallops.
Controller: Bad news. The fog's getting thicker.
Johnny: [jumps to an overweight controller] And Leon is getting laaaaarrrrrger.


Steve McCroskey: Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinking.


Hanging Lady: Nervous?
Ted Striker: Yes.
Hanging Lady: First time?
Ted Striker: No, I've been nervous lots of times.


Rumack: Can you fly this plane, and land it?
Ted Striker: Surely you can't be serious.
Rumack: I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.


Captain Oveur: You ever been in a cockpit before?
Joey: No sir, I've never been up in a plane before.
Captain Oveur: You ever seen a grown man naked?


(A Christmas Story)

[Mr. Parker reads a side of the box with the prize that he won]
Mr. Parker: Fra-gee-lay. That must be Italian.
Mrs. Parker: Uh, I think that says FRAGILE, dear.



  1. haha. some great lines here...i could quote princess bride and holy grail just about all day..

  2. I'm loving reading your blog each day. This of course is my favorite and I'm with Brian, I could quote those 2 movies all day long (along with Pulp Fiction).

  3. I love many of those quotes. It's great how much certain phrases stick in our minds.

  4. Great choices!! I can see how it would be hard to choose. But the "You killed my father, prepare to die" - has got to be my favorite.

    Thanks for sharing.


  5. CHRISTMAS STORY and PRINCESS BRIDE in the same post?? Wings, we were made for each other

  6. I've still not seen Elf, and I've never even heard of Arsenic and Old Lace. Any good?
