Movie Lines We Could Use

Movie Lines We Could Use dan skognes insurance finance investments motivation blogger speaker entrepreneur (256x320) (256x320)

I love movies.  Always have.  There is something magical about them, and there are certain lines that just stick with you.  I got to thinking, what movie lines could we use or have we heard in our business? Some of them I have WANTED to use…LOL.  If nothing else, some of these memories will make you smile.

These are just few I thought of (sorry for the profanity…but they are quotes):

Jerry McGuire.  “Help me help you!”

A Few Good Men. “You can’t handle the truth!”

Poltergeist.  “They’re here!”

Gone With the Wind.  “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

Network. “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

Rocky Balboa. “Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”

Terminator. “I’ll be back.”

The Untouchables. “What are you willing to do?”

The Godfather. “I’m going to make him a deal he can’t refuse.”

Marathon Man.  “Is it safe?”

Cool Hand Luke. “What we have here, is a failure to communicate.”

Terminator 2. “Hasta la vista, baby!”

Apocalypse Now. “I love the smell of napalm in the morning.”

Top Gun. “I feel the need….the need for speed.”

Moonstruck. “Snap out of it!”

Titanic. “I’m king of the world!”

Knute Rockney, All American. “Tell ‘em to go out there with all they got and win just one for the Gipper.”

Dead Poets Society. “Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.”

Casa Blanca. “Here’s looking at you, kid.”

A Streetcar Named Desire. “I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.”

Star Wars. “May the force be with you.”

Field of Dreams. “If you build it, he will come.”

The Pride of the Yankees. “Today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.”

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. “Badges? We ain’t got no badges! We don’t need no badges! I don’t have to show you any stinking badges!”

When Harry Met Sally. “I’ll have what she’s having.”

Midnight Cowboy. “I’m walking here. I’m walking here!”

The Wizard of Oz. “Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

On The Waterfront. “You don’t understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I could’ve been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.”

Braveheart. “Freedommmmmmmmmmmmmmm.”

Bonnie and Clyde. “We rob banks.”

The Sixth Sense. “I see dead people.”

Silence of the Lambs. “A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.”

Frankenstein. “It’s alive. It’s alive!”

Apollo 13. “Houston, we have a problem.”

Some Like It Hot. “Well, nobody’s perfect.”

Scarface. “Say hello to my little friend.”

Dirty Harry. “You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?”

Forrest Gump. “Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”

Taxi Driver. “You talking to me?”

Jerry McGuire. “You had me at hello.”

Wall Street.  “Greed, for lack of a better word, is good.”

Gone With the Wind. “As God is my witness.  I’ll never be hungry again.”

Sudden Impact. “Go ahead, make my day.”

All About Eve. “Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.

OK, so tell me the truth…some of these YOU have wanted to say at least once, right?

Shalom!
