It's late on a Saturday night (well, late for me). I have been doing a lot of heavy thinking and doing lately: weddings, funerals, political issues, special services. Tonight, for just a little while, I want to have fun.
While at the retreat this afternoon, the intern mentioned to me watching the movie Apocalypse Now for an English Literature class (based, of course loosely on Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness). And mentioned the classic line: "I love the smell of napalm in the morning." So then I mentioned one of my all-time favorite movie lines, from Some Like it Hot: "Well, nobody's perfect."
While I'm on a roll, here are some good lines from classic and not-so-classic movies:
"You may now serve the nuts."
"How could this happen? I was so careful. I picked the wrong play, the wrong director, the wrong cast. Where did I go right?"
"Tell 'em, Raymond." "K-Mart sucks."
"I'll have what she's having."
"Too many notes."
"That's going to leave a mark."
"Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas any more."
"As God is my witness, I'll never go hungry again."
What are some of your all-time favorite movie lines?
