Movie Quote of the Day – Bananas, 1971 (dir. Woody Allen)


Nancy: Can. . .can you, like, define the meaning of love?
Fielding Mellish: What do you. . .define. . .it’s love! I love you! I. . .I want you in a way of cherishing your. . .your. . .your totality and your otherness, and. . .and in the sense of a presence, and a being, and a whole coming and a going in a room with grapefruit, and. . .and love of a thing of nature in a sense of not wanting or being jealous of the thing that a person possesses.

Movie Quote of the Day – Love and Death, 1975 (dir. Woody Allen)


Boris: The question is: have I learned anything about life? Only that… only that human beings are divided into mind and body. The mind embraces all the nobler aspirations, like poetry and philosophy, but the body has all the fun. The important thing, I think, is not to be bitter. You know, if it turns out that there IS a God, I don’t think that He’s evil. I think that the worst you can say about Him is that, basically, He’s an underachiever. After all, you know, there are worse things in life than death. I mean, if you’ve ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman, you know exactly what I mean. The key here, I think, is to… to not think of death as an end, but think of it more as a very effective way of cutting down on your expenses. Regarding love, heh, you know, what can you say? It’s not the quantity of your sexual relations that count. It’s the quality. On the other hand, if the quantity drops below once every eight months, I would definitely look into it. Well, that’s about it for me folks. Goodbye.

Marion: I closed the book and felt this strange mixture of wistfulness and hope and I wondered if a memory is something you have or something you’ve lost.

Movie Quote of the Day – Manhattan Murder Mystery, 1993 (dir. Woody Allen)


Carol Lipton: I don’t understand why you’re not more fascinated with this! I mean, we could be living next door to a murderer, Larry.

Movie Quote of the Day – Broadway Danny Rose, 1984 (dir. Woody Allen)

Movie Quote of the Day – Alice, 1990 (dir. Woody Allen)

Alice Tate: I’ve experienced a double blow. A husband who loved me once, I know that he no longer does. And a man I met recently and developed strong feelings for now doesn’t seem to want me.
Dr. Yang: Love. Love is most complex emotion. Human beings unpredictable. No logic to emotions. Where there is no logic, there is no rational thought. Where there is no rational thought, there can be much romance but much suffering.
Alice Tate: Gee, I. . .I feel like I’m adrift, like I’ve been cut loose. A while ago I had a routine life, with feelings I understood. A husband, a home.
Dr. Yang: Mrs. Tate had illusion of happiness. Upon closer observation, not very honest husband, not very honest with self.
Alice Tate: I’m frightened.
Dr. Yang: Freedom is frightening feeling.

Movie Quote of the Day – Husbands and Wives, 1992 (dir. Woody Allen)

Michael: I’m over-anxious because I like you a lot.
Sally: Oh, dear. Michael, what can I say? I haven’t made love in such a long time. My marriage, I told you, was dead. For years. I don’t know why. Yes, I do. It’s the Second Law of Thermodynamics: sooner or later everything turns to shit. That’s my phrasing, not the Encyclopedia Britannica.
