I am so excited for this week’s Monday Listicles. I have a few movies that I love and know a lot of the lines from… quotes that I try to work into my every day life on a daily basis. Some of the times, people get the reference, and other times not… but, it makes me chuckle to myself and that makes it worth it… so, here it goes…
Lightning McQueen: Holy Porsche!
9. Blues Brothers
Elwood: We’re on a mission from God.
8. Heart Like a Wheel
Reporter: What’s a beautiful girl like you doing at a race track like this?
Shirley Muldowney: Winning.
7. Adventures in Babysitting
Albert Collins: Nobody leaves this place without singing the blues.
6. Blues Brothers
Elwood: Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration, don’t fail me now.
5. Adventures in Babysitting
Chris: Don’t worry. We’ll get home. This has all just been a big mistake.
Sarah: What about Brenda?
Brad: That was her parents’ mistake.
4. Fast and the Furious
Dom: I live my life a quarter mile at a time. Nothing else matters: not the mortgage, not the store, not my team and all their bullshit. For those ten seconds or less, I’m free.
3. Fast and the Furious
Dom: It starts with the eyes. She’s gotta have those kind of eyes that can look right through the bullshit, to the good in someone. 20% angel, 80% devil. Down to earth. Ain’t afraid to get a little engine grease under her fingernails.
2. Blues Brothers
Elwood: It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full take of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark, and we’re wearing sunglasses.
Jake: Hit it.
1. The best movie line of all time…. Gumball Rally
Smith (after their cars were impounded): Um… how are going to get back to New York?
Bannon: Hadn’t given it much thought.
Bannon: This is ridiculous.
Bannon: Where do you get cars around here?
Smith: Well, it’s America, babe.
Bannon (to Professor Graves): Gumball.
Okay… those mine? If you haven’t seen any of these movies, I highly suggest them. There seems to be a recurring theme in all my quotes… lol. You can imagine the looks I get when I interject these sometimes… but, it cracks me up. Of course, I am easily amused.
What is your favorite movie quote?
