Listy listy listy

This Tuesday's list is brought to you by Alicia from Chromalab (chromalab.blogspot.com). Alicia and I are soul mates; she read it in a book at her inlaws' house, so it must be true.

What are the top 5 movies you know by heart?

1. Steel Magnolias, "There is no such thing as natural beauty."

2. Clue, "Flames. Flames on the side of my face."

3. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, "What's so fab about it?"

4. Reality Bites, "We are going to eat gas?"

5. To Kill a Mockingbird, "Entailments are bad."

Whatchoo got?


  1. Tommy Boy, "Fat guy in a little coat."

  2. It IS true. Aug 12 + Nov 5 = soul mates. I knew what your list would be except for Reality Bites. I just saw that for the first time this year!

  3. 1. The Deer Hunter, "Stanley, see this? This is this. This ain't something else. This is this. From now on, you're on your own."

    2. Heat, "You know, we are sitting here, you and I, like a couple of regular fellas. You do what you do, and I do what I gotta do. And now that we've been face to face, if I'm there and I gotta put you away, I won't like it. But I tell you, if it's between you and some poor bastard whose wife you're gonna turn into a widow, brother, you are going down."

    3. The Departed, "Church wants you on your place. Kneel, stand, kneel, stand. If you go for that sort of thing, I don't know what to do for you. A man makes his own way. No one gives it to you. You have to take it. 'Non serviam.'"

    4. Up In The Air, "I'm like my mother, I stereotype. It's faster."

    5. Leaves of Grass, "I was born just a few minutes before my brother, Brady. He lived life on his own terms, indifferent to fear - either his own, or those of others. And, let's be honest, by any normal measure my brother was a criminal and a colossal fuckup. But, in the years that we were together, when we were growing up, he gave me the happiest freest times that I will ever know. I don't know why it took me so long to realize that. I left Little Dixie because of my own fears. My greatest regret is that I never told him how difficult that really was."
