Movie Challenge: most quotable

04 Aug

 

7.) A Movie That You Know Practically The Whole Script Of

answer: Back To The Future

So much of my everyday lingo consists of  dialogue from movies, that I often forget I’m actually quoting them; lines from ‘Monty Python and The Holy Grail’, ‘Spaceballs’, and ‘The Princess Bride’, just to name a few. The movie that I’m most familiar with though, is ‘Back To The Future’.

I was already smitten with Michael J. Fox, due to his role as Alex P. Keaton on ‘Family Ties’, but seeing him as Marty McFly sealed the deal for 13 year old me. I took up skateboarding because of this movie. I wasn’t very good, mind you, but flipping that skateboard up into my hands like he did gave me a giddy sense of satisfaction. as did adopting a similar clothing style.

just like this. except my suspenders were blue

 

Quotes that I still use, over 30 years later:

 

They found me. I don’t know how but they found me. run for it, Marty!

 

What the hell is a gigawatt?!

 

I’m you’re density

 

Dad, Dad, Daddy-O

 

If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything

 

I may not skateboard anymore, or wear suspenders and a jean jacket (I really miss my jean jacket, by the way. it had tiny gold safety pins on the back arranged in a big peace sign, that were pinned by hand *sighs nostalgically*) but I still love this movie and I still think Marty McFly is an absolute dream.

    I’m with you on this one! Love the movie and its sequels. (MJF is Canadian by the the way, and many years ago played for the same ice hockey club that my sons play(ed) for.)
