Movie Quote Monday – Moonstruck (again)

I couldn’t let February go without one last Valentine-y movie quote.  And I hadn’t planned on using another Moonstruck quote (at least not so soon), but I couldn’t didn’t resist that, either.

This is from the same scene as the last Moonstruck quote, and it’s Ronny’s response to Loretta, who said she could resist the pull she felt toward him.  She told him a person can learn from their mistakes, that they can “say yes to some things and no to other things that are gonna ruin everything”.

Ronny:  Love don’t make things nice – it ruins everything.  It breaks your heart.  It makes things a mess!  We, we aren’t here to make things perfect.  The snowflakes are perfect…  The stars are perfect.  Not us – not us.  We are here to ruin ourselves and…and to break our hearts.

What do you think?  

I was really struck by thesinglecell’s quote about love on last week’s Infinite Monkey, and I wonder if she and Ronny are right.

Movie Quote Monday – The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride is like a banana split…with chocolate and vanilla ice cream and plenty of syrup and peanuts and whipped cream.  (sigh)  It’s big and it’s beautiful and it makes you happy just to think about it.  And even though you know all the flavors by heart, it’s still delicious every single time.  You can’t just take a taste of a movie like The Princess Bride.  You devour it.  And then you lick the spoon.

And sometimes you lick the bowl too, but only when you think no one is looking.

So, without further ado, here is my valentine to you.  I hope you like the quote; and that is not a joke.  You should also take a listen; but I can’t think of a rhyme for this’n.  (I wonder if Fezzik would be disappointed in me?)

Westley:  Death cannot stop true love.  All it can do is delay it for a while.

Ah, To Blave…that’s what it’s all about.
