My Favorite Movies of 2004

See if you can figure out which movies these quotes are from. Later in the week, I’ll reveal the answers and explain why I liked each of these films so much.

Person A: Can you get in the car?
Person B: I can't get in the car, I don't get in the car with strangers.
Person A: Please get in the car, we're gonna be late.
Person B: I can't get in the car, I don't know you.
Person A: Just get in the car.
Person B: I don't get in the car with strangers!
Person A: You're being a little paranoid.

Person A: You want me to bribe senators?
Person B: I don't want them bribed, Jack. I want this done legal. I want them BOUGHT.

Person A: You got big holes in your socks.
Person B: Oh, they're not that big.
Person A: Didn't I give you money for some new ones?
Person B: These are my sleeping socks. My feet like a little air at night.
Person A: How come you're wearing them in the daytime, then?
Person B: ’Cause my daytime socks got too many holes in them.

Person A: Didn't fancy my sandwiches?
Person B: Don't eat fish.
Person A: Why not?
Person B: Fish piss in the sea.
Person A: So do children.
Person B: Don't eat children either.

I know you think we can't be together, but can't you respect me enough to let me make my own decision? I know there'll be risks but I want to face them with you. It's wrong that we should be only half alive... half of ourselves. I love you. So here I am—standing in your doorway. I have always been standing in your doorway. Isn't it about time somebody saved your life?… Well, say something.

Sometimes I hear myself say something and then I think, “Wow, that wasn’t even remotely true.”

Let me sing you a waltz / Out of nowhere, out of my thoughts / Let me sing you a waltz / About this one night stand / You were, for me, that night / Everything I always dreamt of in life / But now you're gone / You are far gone / All the way to your island of rain / It was for you just a one night thing / But you were much more to me, just so you know / I don't care what they say / I know what you meant for me that day / I just want another try, I just want another night / Even if it doesn't seem quite right / You meant for me much more than anyone I've met before / One single night with you, little ------, is worth a thousand with anybody / I have no bitterness, my sweet / I'll never forget this one night thing / Even tomorrow in other arms, my heart will stay yours until I die / Let me sing you a waltz / Out of nowhere, out of my blues / Let me sing you a waltz / About this lovely one night stand.

Person A: What are the paddles for?
Person B: We're going cow-spanking.
Person A: What the fuck is cow-spanking?
Person B: Well, it's like cow-tipping, except we spank.

Telephone conversation.
Person A: What took you so long?
Person B: I just walked in.
Person A: Do you miss me?
Person B: Oddly enough, I do!
Person A: You said “I do”—I guess that means we're married!
Person B: I guess so!

White women call this the silent treatment... and we let ’em think we don't like it.
