Something more fluffy

My blog topics have been a little heavy as of late, and I think both my readers and I need a break from the serious conversations. This is not to say that I'm backing down from my beliefs, but I need more fun in my life :) I'm spending today on the couch, as my annual allergies/asthma flare up has commenced a little earlier in the calendar year than usual. I would say it's a more mild case this year than usual, or maybe I've come to expect it and therefore know what to treat it with to head it off at the pass.

Anyway, I watched one of my favorite movies this afternoon, "Moulin Rouge!" (2001). There are so many great lines in that film alone, and so I thought, why not post a list of my top 10 favorite movie lines of all time? I will go ahead and apologize to those of you who do not share my taste in film, especially my good friends Matt and Erin, because I'm sure Matt will roll over in laughter at the films I choose :)

1. Maverick: She's lost that loving feeling.
Goose: I hate it when she does that.
~Top Gun

2. Duke: I don't care about your ridiculous dogma! Why shouldn't the courtesan choose the maharajah?

Christian: Because she doesn't love you!

~Moulin Rouge

3. Johnny: Nobody puts Baby in the corner
~Dirty Dancing

4. Harry: I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
~When Harry Met Sally

5. Noah: So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday.
~The Notebook

6. Timothy: Whores don't get second chances!

7. Jake: I am a liberal Row-Ark. What I am not is a card-carrying ACLU radical.
~A Time to Kill

8. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaking suspicion... love actually is all around.
~Love Actually

9. Mr Ollivander: I remember every wand I've ever sold, Mr. Potter. It so happens that the phoenix whose tailfeather resides in your wand gave another feather... just one other. It is curious that you should be destined for this wand when its brother gave you that scar.

Harry: And who owned that wand?

Ollivander: We do not speak his name! The wand chooses the wizard, Mr. Potter. It's not always clear why. But I think it is clear that we can expect great things from you. After all, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did great things. Terrible! Yes. But great.
~Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

10. Jack: But why is the rum gone?
~Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

Love your choices, Lins!

Here's a few of mine:

Mr. Darcy: "She is tolerable, I suppose, but not handsome enough to tempt me."
- Pride and Prejudice

Elizabeth Bennett: And because it's my favorite movie of all time (the BBC version), here's another one:
You are mistaken, Mr. Darcy, if you suppose that the mode of your declaration affected me in any other way, than as it spared me the concern which I might have felt in refusing you, had you behaved in a more gentleman-like manner."
- Pride and Prejudice

The Priest: "It's a wonderful thing, as time goes by, to be with someone who looks into your face, when you've gotten old, and still sees what you think you look like."
- The Bachelor (this quote is the only thing I remember from this movie, because it wasn't one of my favorites)

Sam: "I made a promise, Mr Frodo. A promise. 'Don't you leave him Samwise Gamgee.' And I don't mean to. I don't mean to."
- Lord of the Rings

Ben Barry: "That's what I was, huh? I was your guinea pig, somebody you can test your theories on."
Andie Anderson: "And I was just a girl somebody picked out in a bar."
Ben: "Yeah, so what, big deal? Hell, now you can even use it as a little twist in your story."
Andie: "That's a good idea, maybe we should bet on it."
Ben: "You know what, you did your job now Andie."
Andie: "Yes I did."
Ben: "You wanted to lose a guy in 10 days, congratulations you did it. You just lost him."
Andie: "No I didn't Ben, cause you can't lose something you never had!"

Those are just a few of mine. :)
