10 Things Tuesday Right Hand Edition

It's hard to type but I can copy and paste with 1 hand so I'll do 10 quotes I love. Feel free to leave your own in the comments.

1. "Let's go practice watching me dive."
ChemE (so not what she meant but we kept saying it that whole summer)

2. Marla Singer: A condom is the glass slipper for our generation. You slip one on when you meet a stranger. You dance all night, and then you throw it away. The condom, I mean, not the stranger.
Fight Club

3. Dr. Twardon: Who's to say that love needs to be soft and gentle?

4. [They are stranded in the middle of nowhere in the rain]
Alison: I have a credit card.
Gib: You have a credit card?
Alison: Yes. But my father told me only to use it in case of an emergency.
Gib: Well, maybe one will come up.
The Sure Thing (perhaps this is where my love of the road trip originated)

5. Marcella: You know, when you started getting invited to your ten year high school reunion, time is catching up.
Martin Q. Blank: Are you talking about a sense of my own mortality or a fear of death?
Marcella: Well, I never really thought about it quite like that.
Martin Q. Blank: Did you go to yours?
Marcella: Yes, I did. It was just as if everyone had swelled.
Grosse Point Blank

6. [the President neglected a formality transferring executive power before going into surgery]
Margaret: Can I just say something for the future? *I* can sign the president's name. I've got his signature down pretty good.
Leo McGarry: You can sign the president's name?
Margaret: Yeah.
Leo McGarry: On a document removing him from power and giving it to someone else?
Margaret: Yeah. Or do you think the White House Counsel would say that's a bad idea?
Leo McGarry: I think the White House Counsel would say that's a Coup D'Etat.
Margaret: I'd probably end up doing some time for that.
Leo McGarry: I would think. And what the hell are you doing practicing the president's signature?
Margaret: It's just for fun.
Leo McGarry: We've got separation of powers, checks and balances, and Margaret, vetoing things and sending them back to the hill.
The West Wing

7. 'Skank' Marden: I play hockey and I fornicate, 'cause those are the two most fun things to do in cold weather.
Mystery, Alaska

8. Luke: Rory's not here yet.
Lorelai: Then you'll have to entertain me until she arrives. Okay Burger boy, dance.
Luke: Will you marry me?
[Lorelai is taken aback]
Luke: Just looking for something to shut you up.
Gilmore Girls

9. Pacey: See this? This is you. It's not showy or gaudy. It's simple. Elegant. Beautiful.
Joey: It's my mom's bracelet.
Pacey: I know.
Joey: How do you know?
Pacey: Well, because you told me. Six months ago. You were wearing that blue sweater with the snowflakes that you have. You were walking down the hallway at school. I was annoying you as per usual. You said, "Look, Pacey, I just found my mother's bracelet this morning, so why don't you cut me some slack?"
Joey: You remember that?
Pacey: I remember everything.
Dawson's Creek

10. Elizabeth: Aye, but marry who, your grace? Would you give me some suggestion? For some say France and others Spain, and some cannot abide foreigners at all. So I am not sure how best to please you unless I married one of each.

I cannot express how hard it was to keep myself to one quote per show/movie or even how hard to keep myself to 10 shows/movies. We might have to do this more often.


  1. You totally beat me to the punch this week! I've been working on a movie/tv quote list for today! argh!!!!! great minds and whatnot...how's it healing?

  2. Anonymous8:46 AM

    Of all of these, I only really recognize two - the West Wing quote (it was a great one, especially delivered as masterfully as it was by John Spencer) and the Elizabeth quote (I just watched that again the other day...). Of course, I recognized the Gilmore Girls, but I never saw the episode that quote came from, so that doesn't really count.

    I LOVE Ten Quote Tuesdays; I think the one I did a month or so back was the most fun we had with a Ten Things Tuesday, and I'll likely do one again next week...

  3. You know how I feel about the DC quote.
    But, if you have a second, I'd love to hear why you chose that WW quote of all of Sork's masterful ones.
    And, did you notice that you have two Cusack ones? Must be his delivery.
