I (Heart) Movies

Because I've been super busy this past week and because I've overbooked myself and my family for the next 2 weeks, I can't come up with anything clever to post about and my weekend was so wild that I can't even do a Weekend Wrap Up.  So for today, you get my Top 10 Favorite Movie lines.  Yes, I think you'll be able to tell what some of my fav movies are, and you'll also see that some of the best lines come from children's movies. (I have way more than 10 favorites, but I had to draw the line somewhere).

Here we go:

10.  "Cars didn't drive on it to make great time, they drove on it to have a great time. -- Sally, Cars.

9.  "I don't know what to do with my hands." -- Ricky Bobby, Talladega Nights.

8.  "You know, I've never understood what that means, but no, I'm not 's@%*ing' you. -- Melanie Carmichael, Sweet Home Alabama.

7.  "Miss Truvy, I promise my personal tragedy will not interfere with my ability to do good hair." -- Annelle, Steel Magnolias.

6.  "And 'cause I was a gazillionaire, and I liked doin' it so much, I cut that grass for free." -- Forrest, Forrest Gump.

5.  "Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's vagina." -- Ron Burgandy, Anchorman.

4.  "Chip, I'm gonna come at you like a spider-monkey!" -- Texas Ranger, Talladega Nights.

3.  "You have to do the best with what God gave you" -- Mrs. Gump, Forrest Gump.

2.  "Your Grace! Your Grace!  Please wait!" -- Cinderella, Cinderella.

And my #1 favorite movie line (get the tissues ready)...

1.  "I realize as a woman how lucky I am.   I was there when that wonderful creature drifted into my life and I was there when she drifted out.  It was the most precious moment of my life." -- M'Lynn, Steel Magnolias.

Oh my gosh--I'm totally crying right now.  Sally Field's cemetery scene in Steel Magnolias gets me every time...even more now that I'm a mother.  That is my #1 all time favorite movie...EVER!  I think every line of that movie is one of my favorite movie lines.

Hope you all have a have a happy Monday!!!

Love Ya!

I love the "ability to do good hair" line, too.
I just saw the end of Pursuit of Happyness (and only the end) and started tearing up. Does that make you feel better?
Around here, we quote SuperBad.
