He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

my house is a mess, and has been for months. Whenever I need to get into the mood to fix it up, my mantra is "I will clean this house today"

If we're ever talking about how much we need to spend on some food we're ordering, I'm always delighted to yell "THAT'S NOT ENOUGH!!"

If I find myself saying "I'm hungry" out loud, I find it hard not to end the sentence with this:

then I have to tell my friends "it's a quote. there's no tacos."

If John Wayne is ever being discussed for any reason whatsoever, it kills me not to chime in with this:

Ever have a feeling and you don’t know why?

Pitch Perfect has usurped Mean Girls' place as the super-popular film that gets quoted all the damn time in my household.

- "Damn, prison changed you."

- "Make good choices!"

- "Not a good enough reason to use the word 'penetrate.'"

- "Yeah, no, don't put me down for cardio."

- "Nothing makes a woman feel more like a girl than a man who sings like a boy."
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.

Haha, yeah I use that one quite a lot too. Though it's one of those quotations that doesn't obviously announce itself as a movie reference, so it can seem like you're passing it off as your own joke if the person doesn't know the film - this is a moral grey area: are you required to explain that it comes from Annie Hall, or do you let your friend think that you just made an excellent funny? Ah, the politics of movie quotes...

Whenever someone is laughing AT me and not with me, I always respond with a quick "Laugh it up, FUZZBALL." (Empire Strikes Back)

 It happened to make my now girlfriend laugh every time while I was courting her, so I stuck with it without telling her it was a Star Wars quote. Mutual friend blew my cover. She still loves me but I don't quote that line anymore. Kinda lost it's magic.

Whenever I’m looking for something I’ve misplaced or have forgotten what the thing is I’m looking for, I can’t help but think of Rosanna Arquette’s delivery of “what you are you looking for?!” the second time she says it (3:31)

Ever have a feeling and you don’t know why?

If somebody invites me to an event or asks me to help out a little late in the game:

“I always wanted to be in one of your fucking plays.”

“Like Godzilla says to Mothra, man - let’s go eat some place.”
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

Everytime I see the figure of 12 dollars ( which is what is in my bank account right now )

Chris Rock in Dogma:

“know him? N**** owes me 12 bucks”
