Movie Quote of the Day – Because I Said So, 2007 (dir. Michael Lehmann)


because_i_said_so

Daphne: And who am I supposed to choose anyway, huh? Who do you think is better?
Johnny: Me.
Daphne: What?
Johnny: I like you. And I have an odd instinct that I’d like her too. Maybe I should meet her.
Daphne: Let me be perfectly honest with you, okay? You’re a very charming guy, irresistible, in fact. And that’s why I know you would be a horrendous choice because I’m not looking for a great affair for my daughter. You know, like, a gorgeous musician who’s gonna break her heart. I’m looking for a life partner.
Johnny: That’s great. Thanks. Yeah, no, I love being reduced to a cultural cliché. That’s just terrific. Because only musicians break people’s hearts. Wow.
