Fun Monday Mar 10.

This weeks host and task are;

IT Guy @


I need YOU (yes, the wonderful YOU!) to pick 5 memorable lines from 5 different movies (if you could tell us which character said it and to whom, would be a bonus)...and tell us to WHOM (who in the people in your life) you could have said those lines.

1 “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn”.

Movie, Rhett Butler to Scarlet O’Hara, from "Gone With The Wind.."

Real life, The line forms from the right, just take your place.

2 “I’ll have what she’s having.”

Movie, This line by a bit player who happened to be Director Rob Reiner’s
mother is the most remembered one from “When Harry Met Sally”.

Real life, I could use this line (and sentiment) on an almost daily basis!!!!

3 “Go ahead, make my day.”

Movie, One of the many gems from Harry Callahan, this one from “The Enforcer”

Real life, Well in my “Dream Real life” anyway, to parking officers, traffic
offenders, and people with bad manners everywhere.

4 “Life is like a box of chocolates.”

Movie, Forrest Gump, aka Tom Hanks, to a lady on a park bench from “Forrest

Real life, just think of the fun you could have with this one on Valentines Day.

5 “I’ll be baaack.”

Movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s famous line from “The Terminator.”

Real life, I’ll be back, next Monday to play Fun Monday again, now go and read
some more entries from the list at IT Guys site.

Well, frankly my dear.......LOL. I could say that nearly everyday!

Good lines all, Peter.

Suzz said...

"Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?" Indiana Jones, upon opening the Well of the Souls in the 1981 Raiders of the Lost Ark. One of my favorite lines, along with not giving a damn. Don't know who I would use the Raiders line on, but like Kenju, I'd repeat Rhett's line to almost anyone!

mjd said...

Those are all great quotes. My favorite from Gone with the Wind id "Tomorrow is another day."

MA LOVES PA (which is dolphin talk from DAY OF THE DOLPHIN. I say it to the hubby with a squeaky lil voice that sends him cringing)
