I searched the world and I cannot find one picture of us.
How did this happen? Do none exist??
umm… i do not like that. not one bit. we need to alleviate that problem. and make new ones because if there are some, i’m sure they’re from, like, middle school, and no one wants to see awkward personified in a picture…
I’ll post a quote from pop entertainment (movies, TV, books, etc) and if you know the answer, reblog with your answer to where it is from and who said it, and then a new quote. Let’s see how long we can get this. Also, to keep it interesting, if there is a quote from a TV show posted, you have to give the correct episode title as well.
So, let’s go!
“Theresa falls up the stairs, Theresa falls down the stairs.”
SHIT! I’m never one to be good at these things or even participate in them, but i couldn’t help it because i actually KNOW it! mostly bc Boone was the hottest character ever, or maybe because i watched season 1 on dvd like six times (the only way I’d EVER remember an episode name). but regardless, its:
Boone, LOST season 1, “Deus Ex Machina”
ok, mine. a literary (oops, hint!) quote i live life by—
“What’s comin’ will come, and we’ll meet it when it does.”
I KNOW that’s a Harry Potter quote, but I can’t for the life of me figure out who said it or in which book. I could look it up but it’s like 2:30am and I’m sleepy. So you’re welcome to whoever gets it right. I helped.
So, I was gonna hold off on this, but since nobody else is answering…
Hagrid in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
“This isn’t ‘Nam, this is bowling. There are rules.”
Walter from The Big Lebowski
I’ll enter this game with a softball:
“Life is pain, princess. Anyone who tells you otherwise is selling something.”
THE PRINCESS BRIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! mmmm, it’s Wesley talking to Princess Buttercup, of course. my favorite movie! =)
This is from a novel: “Nothing is more deceitful … than the appearance of humility. It is often only carelessness of opinion, and sometimes an indirect boast.”
I know this one, but I cheated. I had a hunch, but I still cheated to verify. So I’ll wait on answering. The rest of you have 24 hours.
Okay, so I am 100% on this being from a Jane Austen book, but that’s where my knowledge ends.
Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy.
“You know, if you stab a man in the dead of winter, steam will rise up from the wounds. Indians believed it was his soul escaping from his body.”
Glen says that in Wayne’s World!!!
New quote (it’s easy I know):
The worst thing I ever done…I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, the then, I made a noise like this: hluuahh huahhhhhhghh, and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.
chunk in the goonies
ok another movie translated into english
“ but captain, to obey - just like that - for obedience’s sake, without questioning. that’s something only people like you do. “
That would be the doctor from El laberinto del fauno (or Pan’s Labyrinth).
“Hi. I’m a recovering crack head. This is my retarded sister that I take care of. I’d like some welfare, please.”
Dennis, from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, specifically “Dennis and Dee go on Welfare.”
Quote the next: “There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats.”
Yesssss!!! Ratty says that in The Wind in the Willows, one of my favorite books ever!! I’m so glad you played that Ben:)
Listen, you little wiseacre: I’m smart; you’re dumb; I’m big, you’re little; I’m right, you’re wrong, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
can anyone play this game?
matilda, mr wormwood, that asshole!
“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”
YESS you can play this game Kevin:) alright I know I just answered but this is one of my favorite movies ever. Robin Williams as John Keating in Dead Poet’s Society:)
NEW: I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?
sometimes when things stop making sense it’s best to slowly remove yourself from everything & become a secret little ghost. unplugging your phone, leaving the internet, refusing to speak. you can drift through your days in a fog & not think much about anything because thinking would lead to too many things & your frail little heart may be too full of sadness to really want to bring those things up. well my handsome little ghosties, usually this hiding away only leads to being a ghost much longer than anticipated. these ghostly vacations do not solve anything. they store your problems in a locked case deep in your glass hearts & once the box is full it will explode & then & then & then you’ll be haunted. let’s try something new. ghost to ghost secret: it will be tough & it may hurt a tiny bit but think of how bad a glass-heart explosion could hurt! grab my hand & please listen: being a ghost is oh so easy but is it as satisfying as we first believed? no no no. so let’s change. it will take a very brave heart. we must say what we believe! fight for what we believe! never back down. we must call on our close friends when we just feel like escaping. we must NOT escape. we must say yes to invitations to be surrounded by people who truly care. we must say no when we mean no. we must say yes when our heart says ‘yes yes yes’ but our fears make us want to say ‘no no no’. we must TALK. we must share our silly stories. we must not fear how we come off to strangers. we must believe that the people who will love us & stay with us will be drawn to everything we do, every piece of our unlocked heart they see. being a ghost is quite easy & the easy way hardly ever leads to the most rewarding outcome.
let’s grab hands & watch the colour return to our cheeks.
