Movie lines that made an impact on you


Recommended Posts

I was thinking about this lately. Most of us remember the absurd lines from movies.

Some of the funniest lines are in Eddie Murphy movies. However, one Eddie Murphy movie, "Trading Places" has a lot of funny lines, but one of the most profound (in my mind).

If you recall, Eddie Murphy is being prepped to make a switch to the Ivy League/Philly Main Line world in "Trading Places." The butler in the movie was really perceptive, especially after years of catering to the snobs that lived in that mansion.

As he sends Eddie Murphy off into the limo, he says "just be yourself, they can't take that away from you." Wow. For some reason, that stuck.

Have any movie lines resonated with you?

WE are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships! We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own! Your culture will adapt to service us! Resistance is Futile. (Sounds very Teutonic)

The only thing dependable about the future is uncertainty.

Not sure where it came fro, possibly FFVII. It is my favorite quote.

FAVORITE game of all time... still waiting for them to decide to remake it ;)

One line that stuck with me was from Good Will Hunting, and it's when Robin Williams was telling Matt Damon repeatedly, "It's not your fault."
