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.
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.
