Quotes from the movies I love.

Rochester: Allow me to be frank at the commencement. You will not like me. The gentlemen will be envious and the ladies will be repelled. You will not like me now and you will like me a good deal less as we go on. Ladies, an announcement: I am up for it, all the time. That is not a boast or an opinion, it is bone hard medical fact. I put it round you know. And you will watch me putting it round and sigh for it. Don’t.” It is a deal of trouble for you and you are better off watching and drawing your conclusions from a distance than you would be if I got my tarse up your petticoats. Gentlemen. Do not despair, I am up for that as well. And the same warning applies. Still your cheesy erections till I have had my say. But later when you shag – and later you will shag, I shall expect it of you and I will know if you have let me down – I wish you to shag with my homuncular image rattling in your gonads. Feel how it was for me, how it is for me and ponder. ‘Was that shudder the same shudder he sensed? Did he know something more profound? Or is there some wall of wretchedness that we all batter with our heads at that shining , livelong moment.’ That is it. That is my prologue, nothing in rhyme, no protestations of modesty, you were not expecting that I hope. I am John Wilmot, Second Earl of Rochester and I do not want you to like me.

Who are you?
Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.
Well I can see that.
Of course you can. I’m not questioning your powers of observation I’m merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

„You must acquire the trick of ignoring those who do not like you. In my experience, those who do not like you fall into two categories: The stupid and the envious. The stupid will like you in five years time. The envious, never”.

„I would like to thank my mother, who taught me to stand up straight, sit erect, use discipline with wine and sweets, and only smoke six cigarettes a day.”

„Wine may not the answer, but it makes you forget the question.”

Rochester: So here he lies at the last. The deathbed convert. The pious debauchee. Could not dance a half measure, could I? Give me wine, I drain the dregs and toss the empty bottle at the world. Show me our Lord Jesus in agony and I mount the cross and steal his nails for my own palms. There I go, shuffling from the world. My dribble fresh upon the bible. I look upon a pinhead and I see angels dancing. Well? Do you like me now? Do you like me now? Do you like me now? Do you like me… now?

Dear diary, I’m afraid I’m gravely ill. It is perhaps times like these that one reflects on things past. An article of clothing from when I was young. A green jacket. I walk with my father. A game we once played. Pretend we’re faeries. I’m a girl faerie. My name is Laura Lee. And you’re a boy faerie. Your name is Tita Lee. Pretend, when we’re faeries we fight each other, and I say „Stop hitting me I’ll die!” And you hit me again and I say, „Now I have to die.” And then you say, „But I’ll miss you.” And I say, „But I have to. And you’ll have to wait a million years to see me again. And I’ll be put in a box, and all I’ll need is a tiny glass of water and lots of tiny pieces of pizza and the box will have wings like an airplane.” And you’ll ask, „Where will it take you?” „Home.” I say.

 

One thing I was sure of,that my uncle Leo was definitely the hero of my childhood.
The smell of his „Old Spice” cologne carried me back into that lost childhood more than the home movies did.
My uncle didn’t know it, but It was the sweet, cheap smell of car dealers that took me back, and made me dissolve into a dream of the past.
Leo was the last dinosaur that smelled of cheap cologne.
And he believed in the American dream.
I was crazy about him, because he believed in miracles.
And Even though he lived inside of life and sold Cadillacs, he always looked like a ten-year-old boy whose sleeves were too long.
When I was ten, Leo gave me this great movie camera.
And My mother always hoped I’d become the next Milton Berle.
But dreams of houses, and cars, and fresh-cut lawns aren’t dreams when they become real.
And somehow I understood what my mother meant by „Good morning, Columbus.”
And even if my mother didn’t like what I was doing with my life, I think she’d understand.
When I was 11, I got this really weird earache that wouldn’t go away.
I went to about a hundred doctors but none of them could help me…
So what Leo did was he went into Mexico, and brought back this fat lady witch doctor who did this mumbo-jumbo and fixed me right up.
I was grateful, but somehow I thought I might’ve been better off mute.
All in all, I had a very happy childhood.
My father was a border guard, who spent most of his life trying to keep people from crossing lines.
Every night for 15 years, he’d go out and smooth down the road between Mexico and Arizona, and every morning he’d be out there looking for footprints in the dirt.
But my father always said that work was like a hat you put on your head.
And even if you didn’t have pants, you didn’t have to walk down the street ashamed of your ass, so long as you had a hat.

And if somebody was to ask me why I don’t get up right now and take the next train back to New York, it’s because you can’t say no to your childhood hero.
I decided to be his best man, but one thing I was sure of :
No matter how much I loved the smell of cheap cologne,
I was never going to become my uncle, and I was never going to sell Cadillacs.
