We’re in that time of the year – TCM is showing winners from previous years, there are “commercials” on TV promoting the various Best Picture nominees.  I thought this would be a good time to resurrect some of the most famous and notable movie quotes.  However, to keep my blog entertaining to my younger readers I’ve decided to include 5 from more recent movies and 5 from the old classics (from which I could easily pull 20)! 

  1. “Lawzy, we got to get a doctor, I don’t know nuthin’ ’bout birthing no babies Miss Scarlett  – Gone With The Wind
  2. “A martini, shaken, not stirred” – Goldfinger
  3. “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here!  This is the War Room” – Dr. Strangelove
  4. “Why don’t you come up sometime  and see me”? – She Done Him Wrong
  5. “I am big!  It’s the pictures that got small” – Sunset Boulevard
  6. You’re gonna need a bigger boat” – Jaws
  7. “Show me the money” – Jerry McGuire
  8. “May the Force be with you” – Star Wars
  9. I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse” – The Godfather
  10. Houston, we have a problem” – Apollo 13

I just love movies and as I was researching for these quotes, I read so many that brought me back to those great movies.  So many that I may just do this again next Thursday, stay tuned

To Have and To Have Not: “You know you don’t have to act with me, Steve.  You don’t have to say anything and you don’t have to do anything.  Not a thing.  Oh, maybe just whistle.  You know how to whistle, don’t you Steve?  You just put your lips together and –  Blow.

The Bells of St. Mary’s:If you ever need anything, no matter what it is or wherever you happen to be-”  “Yes, I know- I just dial O for O’Malley”

All About Eve: “Fasten your seat belts.  I it’s going to be a bumpy night.”

Sunset Boulevard:I am big, it’s the pictures that got small”.

Auntie Mame: Live, live, live!  Life’s a banquet and most poor suckers are starving.”

In the Heat of the Night: They call me Mister Tibbs
