Favourite Quotable Films.

Recommended Posts

Guest Rebecca Quentin

Just thought I'd start a thread about peoples' favourite quotable films. I'd say one of my all-time favourite films that is packed with great quotes, is "Withnail & I". How could I not love a film that delivers lines such as "don't threaten me with a dead fish" and "we demand the finest wines known to humanity, and we want them here, and we want them now!".

Plus it launched Richard E Grant and Paul McGann's careers.

One of my all time favorite TV shows as a kid was the A-Team. They are about to have a movie come out, unfortunately with different actors as most the the original actors are now to old. The line I liked was (I love it when a plan comes together). That should go with most of what we do. We plan out our transition and if it comes together, we love it.

Love,

Sarah F

We have a consensus, Donna Jean, Carolyn Marie, Jean Davis and I decided that the number one most quotable movie of all time is "Airplane" with "Young Frankenstein" and "Blazing Saddles" right behind.

You can just imagine what the conversation was like.

"And don't call me Shirley!"

Star Trek

Excuse me… Excuse me. I’d just like to ask a question… What does God need with a starship?

-James Kirk, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

Spock: Ahh, Mr. Scott, I understand you’re having difficulty with the warp drive. How much time do you require for repair?

Scotty: There’s nothing wrong with the bloody thing!

Spock: Mr. Scott, if we return to space dock, the assassins will surely find a way to dispose of their incriminating footwear, and we will never see the captain, or Dr. McCoy, alive again.

Scotty: Could take weeks, sir!

-Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

How we deal with death is at least as important as how we deal with life.

-James Kirk, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Spock: This is the new brig, Captain. It is escape-proof.

Kirk: How do you know?

Spock: The designers tested it using the most intelligent and resourceful person they could find. He failed to escape.

Kirk: This person didn't by any chance have pointed ears and an unerring capacity for getting his shipmates into trouble, did he?

Spock: He did have pointed ears.

-Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

Believing oneself to be perfect is often the sign of a delusional mind.

-Data, to Borg Queen, Star Trek: First Contact

Someone is going to have to help me with the name of the movie. It's a quate i have used to lighten up some situations. In my best Jack Nicholson impersonation...."You want the truth.

Thanks Chloe for giving me the name of the movie. I was going crazy tryong to think of it. There is also another quote i like. Can't quote it exactely, but it's from the movie, Dances with wolves. When Kevin Costner's character state he wants to go west...to see it...before it is gone. Something I have always thought about. How great it would be, to see what this country looked like before technology etc. made it into something else.

Clint Eastwood movies are full of wonderful quotes.

One of my favorites is from "Unforgiven," when the Schofield Kid (Jamz Woolvett) tells William Munny (Eastwood) that the bad guys "had it coming."

Will Munny's reply: "We all got it coming, kid."

From the same movie, this exchange between Sheriff Little Bill Daggett (Gene Hackman) and Will Munny:

Little Bill: "You just shot an unarmed man."

Bill Munny: "He should have armed himself if he's gonna decorate his saloon with my friend."

Wonderful movie. Also, lets not forget to give credit to the great screenwriters down through the years. They never get remembered by the public, and

deserve as much credit as the actors who delivered the lines.

Another I like,

"I'll have what she's having" "When Harry Met Sally" The woman in the dinner played by Director Rob Reiner's mother after watching Sally (Meg Ryan not me!) faking fits of ecstasy - that should get past the word filter and stay PG-13. :rolleyes:

and

"Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death" "Auntie Mame!" by the same Character.

There are so many, but the ones that came to my mind for now are:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

-"I was thinking how nothing lasts, and what a shame that is"

-"Did you know I was struck by lightining seven times?" LOL

-"You never know what's coming for you"

-"It's a funny thing about comin' home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You'll realize what's changed is you."

-"You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went. You could swear, curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go. "

Forest Gump

-"I'm not a smart man... but I know what love is."

-"You have to do the best with what God gave you."

-Lieutenant Taylor:"Have you found Jesus yet, Gump? "

Forest:"I didn't know I was supposed to be looking for him, sir. " LOL

-"Life's a box of chocolates, Forrest. You never know what you're gonna get. " (I had to put this in...)

-"What's normal anyways?"

Cast Away

-"You never know what the tide will bring"

Uhhh... there are just sooo many... That's enough for now I think ^_^

"Oh, I like this one... One dog goes one way, the other dog goes the other way, and this guy's sayin', "Whadda ya want from me?'" (Goodfellas) (Everything else Joe Pesci says in that movie also works.)

"Another day to live through. Better get started." (The Last Man on Earth)

"Who is that?" "Wayne Gretzky? On steroids?" (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) (Wayne Gretzky on steroids is my automatic response to who is that.)

"Thank God for rednecks!" (Zombieland)

In the movie "I shot Andy Warhol", and I think Andy said it to Candy Darling (who is a transvestite from the 60's) in real life as well.

Andy- "Oh Candy, how often do you get your period?"

Candy- "Oh I get it every day Andy, that's just how women I am!"

      Hello, Hello, I'm here to complain about my family because they can be downright medieval in my humble opinion. Since my brother is home for the summer, my father works at home, and I'm not doing much during the day besides helping my mother run things around here, that means I don't have a daily uniform. So, that being said, if I wanna be comfy, I get comfy. If I feel the need to bind and can't (usually because I need to give my ribs a break), I usually don't wear anything at all beneath shirts (big shirts. shirts that are not revealing or anything so i really don't think the no bra thing should be an issue). Bras tend to lift and accentuate what I have and when dysphoria hits that is literally the worst thing I can imagine. That's the first thing my family has a problem with. The second? Leg hair. Oftentimes I let it grow because it helps to defeminize my legs (and I guess the fact that they're angry about it means the effects not just working on me. So basically I'm not allowed to be near my brother or my father unless my calves are smooth as a baby's butt and I have a 'proper' bra on. Apparently these are 'the rules'. I have never agreed to these rules, nor did I know they had come into existence. If I break these 'rules' (which I have been for a few months) I get called butch, a '-lesbian-' (my apologies for including this slur), and other things including just plain 'disgusting'. For what? Some fuzz on my legs while my brother has a RUG ON HIS? I'm just tired of getting yelled at, so I usually pull myself from the situation. Like now! They're watching a movie I don't particularly enjoy upstairs and I'm down with my laptop, Netflix, and some frozen waffles I'm about to devour. Let's see if I can make them sweet enough to cover up how bitter I feel. Cheers.

      Hi there Jaye! I'm so happy much of your family is ready and willing to help you through this process– Keep chasing that light!
    • Kamarka
      Hi, Dain! I might just give that book a read!
    • Kamarka
      I don't want to try and make light of the situation, so please call the helpline. Your beautiful life and soul matters so much in the grand scheme, no matter which path you are on or where you find yourself. There are people who love you and will miss you, and I for one am going to keep wondering where you are if I never hear from you. You've made it this far, so just make it a little farther! It's never too late to learn! Never! You've got to console yourself with that fact and do what you can, imo– Make a list of girly things you're dying to learn, join a group, just do what it takes to get yourself back on your feet again! People experience dysphoria in so many different ways, and I'm confident you can and WILL find how to combat it again and again and again https://www.translifeline.org/

      Thank you guys for your advice! We may try the jewelry. He doesn't want anyone to know about it, not even our kids, so something like an ankle bracelet may be perfect! I got a new job and we are going clothes shopping for it tomorrow, so he may pick out a dress he likes that way it is his and not just one of mine.

      So I am having some super dysphoria happing right now.  I just started having thoughts of wishing that I was a little girl.  I am having thoughts of everything I missed cause I was not a little girl.  I am hating these thoughts.  I just want to die cause the never got to do the activities that the little girls get to do.  I just want to die.  Why can't I do some of the stuff or learn the stuff that little girls get to do?
    • VickySGV
      Unless you work with a bunch of people I would not like to, your time is going to be whenever you want to based on your clothing options.  If you wear mechanics coveralls, you might never have to worry about it.  If you are a lifeguard at a pool that will be another problem.  The time frames I gave above on when the HRT will most likely have done what it is going to do also rely on your family biology as to how big you will get. Talk to your Gender Therapist for contingency plans based on "Prepare for the worst, hope for the best and take whatever comes your way with a smile." It will happen sooner than you think it will.
    • VickySGV
      When we get to the point of coming out to ourselves it is even more confusing than coming out to absolutely anyone else in the world.  We had feelings and ideas defined to us by others.  If they assigned you male at birth you got the definitions for boys, if you were assigned female, you got another set of definitions.  For those of us who have some degree of binary, getting the wrong definition was bad enough, but to my knowledge only the tiniest number of parents or communities have given their children the definitions of Non Binary life.   I am 60% binary Trans Female and 30% NB these days but I was given only the tools to understand being male as I was assigned at birth.  Long lead in to saying that you are discovering how to talk about yourself at  this point in the journey and it may take time even to you to find your very personal definition.  Don't worry we have been there, and you will come to where you can declare "This is ME" and know what that means.

      Thanks for your support! I wish you the best of luck and I don't think 32 was too late for you either, you're looking pretty good! Inspiring to see all the different people here who are really making it work, gives me a lot of hope for the future. It's going to be a rough couple years here at times, but for the first time in my life I truly see the light at the end of the tunnel.
    • MaryMary
      hey, welcome I'm happy you are here and also happy that things seems to be going well. It's never too young to transition, we should not fall into that trap. To me it's a serious health concern (in the sense that it's not good to stay depressed and dysphoric for too long). It's great that people are doing this younger but the end goal is to be yourself and it's never too late to be yourself and to be happy I transitioned at 32 I was really old lollll I will send you positive energy so that it continues to go super well.
    • LeavesThatAreGreen
      I apologize in advance for how long and rambling this is going to be.   Well, in the past few weeks I've finally come to terms with the reality I've known for years. And I don't think a second too soon. I've been on a roller coaster ride these past few days, getting really wasted (not encouraging that behavior, nor do I mean to trigger anyone who suffers from alcohol abuse, just let me know if this part isn't ok) and crying my eyes out to music so loud the neighbors could hear it.   The first people I came out to were some people I knew online. I think I felt confident coming to them first because they have no idea what I looked like, they could instantly shift their perspective of me, and they did. They were incredibly accepting and to be treated like the person I really was for the first time was such an amazing experience and I felt a kind of happiness I've never felt before. Of course very soon after I was again wracked with self-doubt and shame. I almost got to the point where I felt like I was unsafe enough to check myself into in-patient (once again).   Realizing that my only options were seriously transition or die, the next day I came out to my therapist. Our scheduled meeting had to be called off, but when I emailed him to schedule a new one he offered to do a session over the phone. He was obviously incredibly supportive, said that he's had clients like me in the past and we'll have a lot to talk about the next session. Called me by my real name a million times and it was so great. Afterwards I called my brother and sister-in-law, which also went incredibly well, they're very open minded people, as is my mom who I called next. They all were supportive and agreed to try their best to get into the habit of using the right name and pronouns. I know it's gonna take a long time to adjust, and hell I still misgender myself even in my own head. I don't feel at this point that I'm worthy of being recognized yet, but I think I just have to fight through that. Telling my dad is going to be rough though, and I'm not even going to think about that for now.   As the title might suggest, I'm 22 and I'm not getting any younger. The thing that finally did it for me was noticing how masculine my body was getting. All of us sudden I experienced dysphoria intense enough to truly recognize it for the first time, and I realized that I've been dealing with it for years without knowing what it is. I've always been attracted to men so in the recent past I figured that "just being gay" would be enough, but obviously it's not the same thing. I could fight through it, but for some reason homosexual activity just didn't feel "right", not in a judgemental way, just in a "that's fine and all, and I'm into it, but it's not really me" way. Now I know what that reason was.   As far as the hand I've been dealt in terms of transitioning, I'm honestly pretty lucky. I think talking about the specific things I'm dealing with, for better or worse, is probably best for another thread. I've been reading around online and some people say that 22 is getting up there to start, but I don't think it is at all. Our bodies aren't even done developing until 25 or so, and it's NEVER too young to transition. I think most people who say "X is too old to transition" are trolls and transphobes who want us to choose the that only other option we have. Like I said, this isn't really the thread where I'd like to go into it, but in my opinion I don't have overly masculine features, and I think passing is well with-in the realm of possibilities for me sooner rather than later. I've got my work cut out for me, but in a lot of ways I really am lucky to be in the situation I am. Well, I mean if just being born the right gender wasn't an option.   Good luck to everyone else here, and I look forward to being a part of this community, Jaye

      First of all Welcome! It's great to have you here! I have deleted and or walked away from many many posts, cause sometimes my mind wants to say a whole bunch, sometimes it flows, and sometimes it gets all tangled up. After i come back and read a bit more in here, i find i am able to write most of what I wanted to say in the post. Sometimes I "ramble on," but I feel better getting it out, instead of bottling it up. The TP community helps me with my thoughts and questions, and later I can see what and how i was thinking.  As abstract as you might think your thoughts are, they will make sense to us, cause we are and have been where you are right now, in some form shape and manner,   we either understand and/or can be here for you to help. (I hope all of that made sense, lol)  
    • carolcrissy
      Thanks to all for a warm welcome!😊

      The Answer depends on the individual. For some people. their bodies might respond quickly, others not for years. I am 53 and have been on HRT for a little over 4 months and counting. I had an Orchiectomy a little over a month ago, and I am T free. I feel that My hips are starting to show, but not to anyone else. I can see slow breast growth happening , but only one comment about "have i been working out?" But thats Me, you and everyone else will probably have a different response. Speak with a Gender Therapist and your Doctor (that is fluent with the LGBTQ community), so they can help you with your journey. Continue researching until You are comfortable with your decisions. If you decide to start HRT, and do not like the way you look and or feel, then talk to your doctor, or stop all together.  Since you have a "year or two," you have plenty of time to do your research and talk to the GD therapist and your Doctor.  Best of luck in  your Journey!

      Facial hair is no longer my “beard”- pun intended as I’ve had laser hair removal. I guess my main question from here is the question of when the curves:fat redistribution and breasts became harder to hide. I do eventually want to live full time. I just won’t be ready to make that leap for another year or two though.
