Quotable Quotes

Watching movies was my favorite pastime when I was still single. Usually, every weekend, I went to the mall just to watch a movie, be it alone or with a date. And in every movie, I can always get a good line or phrases. After I got married and gave birth, Superman and Kung Fu Panda were the only movies that I was able to watch…sigh. Anyways, listed below were the movies with memorable quotes or lines.


“A child without a father is like a house without a roof”

This is a story about a young but poor Vietnamese woman whose life was controlled by her mother. She later met an American G.I., portrayed by Tommy Lee Jones, and married him. He brought her to the U.S. thus, leaving poverty and woes behind. However, their marriage became shaky and eventually led to divorce. But Tommy Lee committed suicide. The young Vietnamese was then told this phrase when she consulted a Chinese spiritual adviser.


This movie became memorable to me when Hawkeye (played by Daniel Day-Lewis) told this line to Cora (played by the beautiful Madeleine Stowe):
Hawkeye to Cora: "No, you submit, do you hear? You be strong, you stay alive, no matter what occurs! I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you. I will find you!"


Show Me the Money! – (shouted repeatedly in a phone exchange between Rod Tidwell and Jerry Maguire) – played by Cuba Gooding & Tom Cruise

And who would ever forget this line?

Jerry: Hello. Hello. I'm looking for my wife.

(Dorothy looks up stunned, and looks quite apprehensive)

Jerry: Wait. Okay, okay. Okay. If this is where it has to happen, then this is where it has to happen. I'm not letting you get rid of me. How about that? This used to be my specialty. You know, I was good in the living room. They'd send me in there, I'd do it alone. And now I just... I don't know. But tonight, our little project, our company, had a very big night. A very, very big night. But it wasn't complete, wasn't nearly close to being in the same vicinity as complete, because I couldn't share it with you. I couldn't hear your voice, or laugh about it with you. I missed my wife. We live in a cynical world, a cynical, cynical world, and we work in a business of tough competitors. I love you. You complete me. And if I just had...

Dorothy: Shut up. Just shut up.....You had me at hello. You had me at hello.


Jack , I want you to draw me like one of your French girls , wearing this , wearing only this. – Rose to Jack portrayed by Kate Winslet & Leonardo di Caprio


A person's a person, no matter how small


Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift—that is why we call it the present – Master Oogway to Po

I also love that line taken from kung fu panda. Also that from the ten commendments. Like you, I also love memorizing tag lines from the movies I watch.
