As I Began To Love Myself
TOM CRUISE WEEK: THE COLOR OF MONEY
I saved the best for last, here they are, my favorite quotes from The Color Of Money!
Eddie Felson: You got to be a student...of human moves. See, all the greats that I know of...were students of human moves.
Eddie Felson: You're some piece of work. You're also a natural character.
Vincent Lauria: I've been telling her that. I got natural character.
Eddie Felson: That's not what I said, kid. I said you are a natural character. You're an incredible flake. But that's a gift. Guys spend half their lives inventing that.
Carmen: Vincent, you win one more game... you're gonna be humping your fist for a long time.
Eddie Felson: The balls roll funny for everybody, kiddo.
Eddie Felson: Vincent, get in the car, this is embarrassing. You're acting like some girl who got felt up at the drive-in.
Eddie Felson: Human moves, kid. You study the watch... while I study you.
Vincent Lauria: Hey Eddie, what are you going to do when I kick your ass?
Eddie Felson: Pick myself up and let you kick me again.
Vincent Lauria: Oh yeah?
Eddie Felson: Yeah.
Eddie Felson: Just don't put the money in the bank, kid. Because if I don't whip you now, I'm gonna whip you next month in Dallas.
TOM CRUISE WEEK: JERRY MACGUIRE
Another great movie... My favorite quotes:
Ray: D'you know that the human head weighs 8 pounds?
Jerry: Did you know that Troy Aikman, in only six years, has passed for 16,303 yards?
Ray: D'you know that bees and dogs can smell fear?
Jerry: Did you know that the career record for hits is 4,256 by Pete Rose who is NOT in the Hall of Fame?
Ray: D'you know that my next door neighbor has three rabbits?
Jerry: I... I can't compete with that!
Ray: Let's go to the zoo Jerry
Jerry: The fuckin zoo is closed, Ray.
Ray: You said "fuck."
Jerry: Uh... yeah... I...
Ray: Don't worry. I won't tell.
Rod Tidwell: It's something very personal, a very important thing. Hell! It's a family motto. Are you ready Jerry? I wanna make sure you're ready, brother. Here it is: Show me the money. Show! Me! The! Money! Jerry, it is such a pleasure to say that! Say it with me one time, Jerry.
Jerry Maguire: But if anybody else wants to come with me, this moment will be the ground floor of something real and fun and inspiring and true in this godforsaken business and we will do it together! Who's coming with me besides... "Flipper" here?
Rod Tidwell: Anyone else would have left you by now, but I'm sticking with you. And if I have to ride your ass like Zorro, you're gonna show me the money.
Jerry Maguire: How's your head?
Rod Tidwell: Bubblicious.
Jerry Maguire: What do you want from me? My soul?
Dorothy: Why not? I deserve that much.
TOM CRUISE WEEK: DAYS OF THUNDER
Who doesn't love this movie? Here are some of my favorite quotes:
Harry Hogge: All right. While we're still under a caution, I want you to go back out on that track and hit the pace car.
Cole Trickle: Hit the pace car?
Harry Hogge: Hit the pace car.
Cole Trickle: What for?
Harry Hogge: Because you've hit every other goddamned thing out there, I want you to be perfect.
Harry Hogge: Cole, you're wandering all over the track!
Cole Trickle: Yeah, well this son of a bitch just slammed into me.
Harry Hogge: No, no, he didn't slam you, he didn't bump you, he didn't nudge you... he *rubbed* you. And rubbin, son, is racin'.
Cole Trickle: Just a little rubbing Harry and rubbings racing.
Harry Hogge: What do you know about stock car racing?
Cole Trickle: Well... watched it on television, of course.
Harry Hogge: You've seen it on television?
Cole Trickle: ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.
Harry Hogge: I'm sure I would.
TOM CRUISE WEEK: TOP GUN
So the movie Top Gun came out when I was 4 and to this day it is still one of my favorite movies, probably in large credit to the fact that the same year the movie came out, my brother went into the navy. So a few of my favorite quotes:
Maverick: Tower, this is Ghost rider requesting a flyby.
Air Boss Johnson: That’s a negative Ghost rider, the pattern is full.
Carole: Hey Goose you big stud!
Goose: That’s me, honey.
Carole: Take me to bed or lose me forever.
Goose: Show me the way home, honey.
Charlie: Well, if you were directly above him, how could you see him?
Maverick: Because I was inverted.
Iceman: [coughs whilst saying] Bullshit.
Goose: No, he was man. It was a really great move. He was inverted.
Charlie: You were in a 4g inverted dive with a MiG28?
Maverick: Yes, ma'am.
Charlie: At what range?
Maverick: Um, about two meters.
Goose: It was actually about one and a half I think. It was one and a half. I've got a great Polaroid of it, and he's right there, must be one and a half.
Maverick: Was a nice picture.
Charlie: Eh, lieutenant, what were you doing there?
Maverick: Communicating. Keeping up foreign relations. You know, giving him the bird!
Goose: [Charlie looks puzzled, so Goose clarifies] You know, the finger
Charlie: Yes, I know the finger, Goose.
Goose: I-I'm sorry, I hate it when it does that, I'm sorry. Excuse me.
Maverick: [spots Charlie for the first time] She's lost that loving feeling.
Goose: She's lo... No she hasn't.
Maverick: Yes, she has.
Goose: She's not lost that lo...
Maverick: Goose, she's lost it, man.
Goose: Come on!
Goose: [to himself] Aw sh... I hate it when she does that.
Jester: That was some of the best flying I've seen to date - right up to the part where you got killed.
