Zee End.

Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
Theme: Making movie lines our own.

Zee End

(Read like a phony foreign accent, "Zee End.")

We are at "zee end" of the 2016 A to Z Challenge, so here are some favorite last lines -- lines at "zee end" of the film.

Gone With the Wind (1939)...

SCARLETT (Vivien Leigh)
Tara! Home. I'll go home, and I'll think of some way
to get him back! After all, tomorrow is another day!

There's a lot to be said for making people laugh!
Did you know that's all some people have?
It isn't much, but it's better than
nothing in this cockeyed caravan! Boy!

The Quiet Man (1952)

MICHALEEN FLYNN (Barry Fitzgerald)
No patty fingers, if you please. 
The proprieties at all times.
Hold on to your hats.

BUTCH CASSIDY (Robert Redford)
Oh, good. For a moment there, 
I thought we were in trouble.

The Sting (1973)

You not gonna stick around for your share?

JOHNNY HOOKER (Robert Redford)
Naah. I'd only blow it.

DR. EMMETT BROWN (Christopher Lloyd)
Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.

MOSES (Bill Cobbs)
And that's the story of how Norville Barnes
climbed waaay up to the forty-fourth floor
of the Hudsucker Building, and then fell
all the way down, but didn't quite squish
hisself. You know, they say there was a man
who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? 
But that's another story...

Spider-Man (2002)

PETER PARKER (Tobey Maguire)
Whatever life holds in store for me, 
I will never forget these words: 
"With great power comes great
responsibility." This is my gift.
My curse. Who am I? I'm Spider-Man.

The Help (2011)

God says we need to love our enemies.
It hard to do. But it can start by telling
the truth. No one had ever asked me
what it feel like to be me. Once I told
the truth about that, I felt free. 
And I got to thinking about all the
people I know. And the things I seen
and done. My boy Trelaw always said
we gonna have a writer in the family
one day. I guess it's gonna be me.

    My favorite last line is from It's a Wonderful Life...

    Zuzu Bailey: Look, Daddy. Teacher says, every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.
    George Bailey: That's right, that's right.
    George Bailey: [Looks heavenward] Attaboy, Clarence.

    Weekends in Maine

    1. I selected one from each decade, starting with the 1930s. It was tough choosing!

      When I come across a good movie I always plan to post a review, but I'm waaaay behind.

  9. Just stopped by to say hey. Congrats to all for crossing the A-Z finish line.
