Movie Quote of the Day – Dear Frankie, 2004 (dir. Shona Auerbach)


Nell: Bette Davis used to have blood-red nails.
Lizzie: Did she?
Nell: That’s what your daddy used to call you. You’d be all dressed up in my best frock and high heels. Talking away to yourself. Away in your own wee world. And he’d say, “Jesus Christ, Nell. Who the hell does that lassie think she is? Bette Davis?” I never really liked Bette Davis. Preferred Barbara Stanwyck. You knew where you were with Barbara Stanwyck.

Movie Quote of the Day – Bride & Prejudice, 2004 (dir. Gurinder Chadha)


Kiran Bingley: Darcy’s a great reader. In fact, I think a love of books is on his list for his ideal woman.
Will Darcy: I think you’ve had one too many Sea Breezes.
Kiran Bingley: I remember a very drunken night in Oxford when you recited the list. She has to be smart, speak several languages…
Will Darcy: All right, Kiran, drop it.
Kiran Bingley: No, I recall, she had to be athletic, voluptuous, of course, graceful, witty, confident…
Lalita Bakshi: I’m not surprised Mr. Darcy hasn’t found his ideal woman with a list like that. Does this mean you’re an ideal man?
Will Darcy: I guess you’d be a better judge of that than me.

Movie Quote of the Day – Little Black Book, 2004 (dir. Nick Hurran)


Stacy: I believe we write our own stories. And each time we think we know the end, we don’t.

Once you let go of the wheel, you might end up right where you belong.

Movie Quote of the Day – Melinda and Melinda, 2004 (dir. Woody Allen)


Ellis Moonsong: Why do things that start off so promisingly always have a way of ending up in the dump?
Melinda Robicheaux: Not for everyone.
