Movie Quote Monday – The Goonies
I have enough romance and imagination in me to almost believe that a wish could be attached to a coin. Enough so that it would be hard for me to put that coin into a soda machine, for example.
I could do it if I had to…but that coin would haunt me.
Andy: I always used to believe that when you threw your money in, it turned into your wish.
—Goonies: You take this one, and I’ll take two coins…
Stef: Wait, wait, wait, wait – stop, stop – you can’t do this…
Stef: Because, these are somebody else’s wishes…they’re somebody else’s dreams.
My logical mind understands that dreams and wishes can’t be attached to a particular coin, any more than throwing said coin into a fountain will bring those wishes true. Making your dreams come true requires a bit more effort than that. But still…
I can spare a quarter for romance and imagination…and a little bit of wishful thinking.
Every dream needs a place to start.
