Favorite Movie Quotes

Some great movie quotes made it to the American Film Institute’s list presented on CBS this week. I’m pleased to see so many from “Casablanca” included, such as “Here’s looking at you, kid,” “Round up the usual subjects,” “We’ll always have Paris,” and “Play it, Sam – play ‘As Time Goes By.’”

However, quite a few of my favorites were missing. Here are the most glaring omissions:

“All of life’s riddles are answered in the movies.” -– Steve Martin in “Grand Canyon.”

“I worship at the Church of Baseball.”-- Susan Sarandon in “Bull Durham.”

“You’ll shoot your eye out.” –- Santa Claus (and others) in “A Christmas Story.”

“I’d rather be a ghost floating by your side than enter heaven without you.” -– Chow Yun-Fat in “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.”

“If we bring a little joy into yer humdrum lives, it makes us feel as though all our hard work ain’t been in vain fer nothin’.” –- Jean Hagen in “Singin’ in the Rain.”


  • "What does that mean, a father, a son? A baby holds your hand and then there's this big person lifting you up off the ground and then they're gone. Where's that son?"
