1841 7.1 7.23. Easy A (2010)
"Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exists in 80's movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I want to ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just ONCE I want my life to be like an 80's movie. Preferably one with a really awsome musical number for no apparent reason."

"In the end, I've come to believe in a thing I call "the physics of the quest": a force in nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity. The rule of quest physics goes something like this: if you're brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and conforting, which can be anything from your house to bitter old resentments, and set out on a truth seeking journey, either externly or internly, and if you're truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared, most of all, to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth will not be witheld from you."
1517 7.5 87. True Romance (1993)

1489 6.1 6.49. He's Just Not That Into You (2009)
"Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we're told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope. "
"People who get married, they're not to be trusted, because if you're so legitimally happy, honestly, you wouldn't feel the need to make a big show out of it. You wouldn't have to broadcast it. They do it because they're insecure, because they think that getting married is what they're supposed to be doing, and so they're lying to themselves, and they're lying to other people. "
- What if i'm the exception?
- You're not. In fact, you're the rule. And the rule is this: if a guy doesn't call you, he doesn't want to call you. (...) If a guy is treating you like he doesn't give a shit, he genuelly doesn't give a shit. No exceptions.
"Things have changed. People don't meet each other organically anymore. If I want to seem attractive to the opposite sex, I wouldn't go get a new haircute, I'd update my profile, it's just the way it is."
"I miss the days when you had one phone number, and one answering machine, and that one answering machine had one cassete tape, and that one cassete tape either had a message from the guy or it didn't.

676 6.3 6.610. Reality Bites (1994)
"There's no point to any of this. It's all just a... a random lottery of meaningless tragedy and a series of near escapes. So I take pleasure in the details.

2963 8 8.211. Into the Wild (2007)
"The sea's only gifts are harsh blows, and occasionally the chance to feel strong. Now I don't know much about the sea, but I do know that that's the way it is here. And I also know how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong but to feel strong. To measure yourself at least once. To find yourself at least once in the most ancient of human conditions. Facing the blind death stone alone, with nothing to help you but your hands and your own head."
1120 7.1 7.512. Doubt (2008)
"There are people who go after your humanity, Sister. They'll tell you that the light in your heart is a weakness. Don't believe it. It's an old tactic of cruel people to kill kindness in the name of virtue. There's nothing wrong with love."

"I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can't remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world's still there."
"Memory can change the shape of a room; it can change the color of a car. And memories can be distorted. They're just an interpretation, they're not a record, and they're irrelevant if you have the facts."
2241 7.2 7.615. Blow (2001)
"So in the end, was it worth it? Jesus Christ. How irreparably changed my life has become. It's always the last day of summer and I've been left out in the cold with no door to get back in. I'll grant you I've had more than my share of poignant moments. Life passes most people by while they're making grand plans for it. Throughout my lifetime, I've left pieces of my heart here and there. And now, there's almost not enough to stay alive. But I force a smile, knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent. There are no more white horses or pretty ladies at my door."
"Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again, but life goes on. "

"Life's funny. To a kid, time always drags. Suddenly you're fifty. All that's left of your childhood... fits in a rusty little box."
- You know, the girl with the glass of water? If she seems out of place, maybe it's because she's thinking of someone.

- No, of a boy she saw somewhere else. She feels like they've a lot in common.
- In other words, she prefers to imagine a relationship with someone who is not there rather than to tie real bounds with people around her.
- No, on the contrary, maybe she even goes out of her way to arrange other people's messed up lives.
- But what about her own messed up life? Who's going to take care of it?
- Well anyway, I'd rather take care of others than look after a garden dwarf!

Her hardest hue to hold.

But only so an hour.

So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay."
"I was getting to where I could see the truth. Someday I'll be brave enough to speak it."
"Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold.
2391 6.7 7.122. Meet Joe Black (1998)
"Be deliciously happy, or at least leave yourself open to be. Love is passion, obssession, something you can't live without, if you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. How do you find him? Well, forget your head and start listening to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Cause the truth is, there's no sense in living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love.

Teddy: Goofy's a dog. He's definitely a dog.
Gordie: I knew the $64,000 question was fixed. There's no way anybody could know that much about opera!
Chris: He can't be a dog. He drives a car and wears a hat.
Gordie: Wagon Train's a really cool show, but did you notice they never get anywhere? They just keep wagon training.

- No man, seriously. Am I weird?
- Yeah, but so what? Everybody's weird. "

I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick — it even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you're always right.
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh — even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it that you're not around and the fact that you didn't call.
But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you — not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

"Sometimes I feel there is a hole inside of me, and emptyness that at times, seems to burn. I think that if you lifted my heart to your ears, you could hear the ocean. And the moon tonight, there's a circle around it, a sign of trouble not far behind. I have this dream of being whole, of not going to sleep each night wanting. But still, sometimes, when the wind is warm and the crickets sing, I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for. I just want someone to love me, I want to be seen.

2479 7.3 7.735. Match Point (2005)
"The man who said 'I rather be lucky than good' saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependant on luck. It's scary to think so much is out of one's control.

Or maybe it doesn't, and you lose."
571 5.2 5.536. Babylon A.D. (2008)
Save the planet. Whenever I've read that bumper sticker I've had to laugh. Save the planet. What for? And from what? From ourselves? Life's simple: kill or be killed, don't get involved and always finish the job. A survivor's code, my code, and it all sounds great until the day you find yourself confronted by a choice. A choice to make a difference, to help someone, or to walk away and save yourself. I learned something that day: you can't always walk away. Too bad it was the day I died.
1426 6.2 6.837. Hairspray (2007)
Life is like the seasons with no summer
It's rock 'n' roll without a drummer

Like a week that's only Mondays
Only ice cream, never sundaes
Like a circle with no center
Like a door marked "do not enter"!

"This isn't a conversation about this being over, it's, it's...

I gotta go... you changed my life in four days. This is the beginning of something really big. But right now, I gotta go."
1624 6.2 6.439. Elizabethtown (2005)
"There's a diffrence between a failure and a fiasco. A failure is merely the absence of success. Any fool can achieve failure. But a fiasco, a fiasco is a disaster of epic propotions. A fiasco is a folk tale told to other's to make other people feel more alive because it didn't happen to them."
4085 7.4 7.840. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)

894 6.4 6.941. Saved! (2004)

5982 7.8 8.542. American Beauty (1999)
"I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me... but it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life... You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry, you will someday."
