With the election and all of its rhetoric heating up, I know I need to take a step back and cool off.
We are a nation of pop culture. There are symphonies, but I don't know many people who go to them. There are lectures on serious subjects, but I don't know many people who go to those either. But everyone I know goes to movies or has their favorite guilty television pleasure. That's the vernacular we all speak.
That makes movie quotes a societal shorthand. A word or a short phrase can convey as much meaning as a Shakespearian soliloquy. But when the same line gets used over and over again, I think it gets tiring and I start to feel the speaker or writer or commentator is just getting lazy. Here are 10 movie quotes that I could gladly bid hasta la vista, baby.
You do know what movie each of these if from, don't you?
TEN MOVIE LINES I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF
- Show me the money.
- Here's Johny!
- I'll have what she's having.
- They're here!
- Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.
- There's no crying in baseball.
- I see dead people.
- I feel the need...for speed.
- I'm king of the world!
