I can't come up with anything now - but I know what I'll be thinking about all day!

Alan G

How 'bout....

"I'll have what's she's having."
from 'When Harry Meets Sally'


"My father thanks you. My mother thanks you. My sister thanks you. And I thank you." from 'Yankee Doodle Dandy'.


I think "ET phone home" is my favorite!


Dear Joy ~~ Catching up on your posts and I love all the quotes you had from movies, and the home you live in and have for 32 years and the maintenance needed. and the lovely story of your friend Uncle Bobby Jack. It is always so sad to lose a friend.
Thank you so much for your kind words about my blog and meals (I have to cook, because I love to eat)so I have some meat and veggies every day and that helps keep me healthy. Mike prunes fruit trees in the season and later will pick the fruit, and is
between those jobs at present.
Take great care of yourself dear friend, Love always, Merle.


"I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse."

"I coulda been a contender!"

"The horror. The horror."

Anyone would think I'm a Marlon Brando fan. lol


I could only think of two and you covered them. Therefore, I can't add to your list,but then with my poor memory I wouldn't be able to name the movie even if I remembered the quote.


"Snakes, why did it have to be snakes?" Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
That scene is on YouTube at


I think you covered all my favorites, but it was fun saying, "Oh Yaaa" after each one.



I loved "Casablanca" and Bogey saying to Bergman, "Here's lookin at you, Kid."

And Bacall saying to Bogey in "To Have and Have Not", "You know how to whistle,don't you, Steve? Just put your lips together and blow."

Thanks for bringing up these wonderful movie memories,Joy. The older films were a very great part of my young life and remembering them now brings great pleasure to me.

One of my favorites is from 'Arthur' with Dudley Moore. He announces he is going to the bathroom and his butler replies "I shall alert the media." I use that one on my kids all the time.


Oh, these are great! Think you came up with all the ones I could think of.



"Captain Renault: What in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?
Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.
Rick: I was misinformed.

Rick: Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine.

Rick:But it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world"


And these from "Being There" with Peter Sellers who played Chance, the simple minded gardner who was mistaken for a genius by those in power:

President "Bobby": Mr. Gardner, do you agree with Ben, or do you think that we can stimulate growth through temporary incentives?
[Long pause]
Chance the Gardener: As long as the roots are not severed, all is well. And all will be well in the garden.
President "Bobby": In the garden.
Chance the Gardener: Yes. In the garden, growth has it seasons. First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again.
President "Bobby": Spring and summer.
Chance the Gardener: Yes.
President "Bobby": Then fall and winter.
Chance the Gardener: Yes.
Benjamin Rand: I think what our insightful young friend is saying is that we welcome the inevitable seasons of nature, but we're upset by the seasons of our economy.
Chance the Gardener: Yes! There will be growth in the spring!
Benjamin Rand: Hmm!
Chance the Gardener: Hmm!
President "Bobby": Hm. Well, Mr. Gardner, I must admit that is one of the most refreshing and optimistic statements I've heard in a very, very long time."

There were only 2 quotes that I did not know what movie they were from. Amazing how one line can stay with us forever and ever.

Now my head is spinning trying to think of a movie line and I am drawing a blank. :(
