I pride myself in being a great listener, but whenever I meet somebody new I find I’m doing all the talking.

Maybe you’re not really such a great listener.


Maybe you’re not such a great listener.

No, that’s not it, I’m a great listener.

If you guys were the inventors of Facebook, you’d have invented Facebook.

-Mark Zuckerberg, The Social Network (2010)

Okay, so maybe this quote is a little overused in trailers etc.  But it’s still an awesome moment.

Get out of my way son, you’re using my oxygen.

-McMurphy, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)

Yes, quotes of the week are back.  I’m excited, so you should be too.  There are many quotable one-liners comin’ from this character, but I particularly enjoyed this one.

Are you crazy?!  A man in a really nice camper wants to put our song on the radio!  Gimme a pen – I’m signin’!  You’re signin’! We’re all signin’..

~Lenny, That Thing You Do! (1996)

This is one of my favorite movies, and Steve Zahn is quickly becoming a favorite as well.  It’s just so snappy.

You think you have enough talent to win on talent alone?  Gentlemen, you don’t have enough talent to win on talent alone.

~Herb Brooks, Miracle (2004)

For a sports flick, there are a lot of pretty good one-liners in here.  Great movie, though!
