If you’re stranded on a deserted island, you can pick only five movies to watch for the rest of your life. Post your favorite quotes.

1. Napoleon Dynamite:

[Kip is singing to Lafawnduh after they become husband and wife]

Kip: We met in a chatroom, now our love can fully bloom… Sure the world-wide web is great, but you, you make me salivate… I love technology, but not as much as you, you see… But I STILL love technology.

2. Little Miss Sunshine:

Frank: Do you know who Marcel Proust is?

Dwayne: He’s the guy you teach.

Frank: Yeah. French writer. Total loser. Never had a real job. Unrequited love affairs. Gay. Spent 20 years writing a book almost no one reads. But he’s also probably the greatest writer since Shakespeare.

Anyway, he uh… he gets down to the end of his life, and he looks back and decides that all those years he suffered, those were the best years of his life, ’cause they made him who he was. All those years he was happy? You know, total waste. Didn’t learn a thing.

So, if you sleep until you’re 18… Ah, think of the suffering you’re gonna miss. I mean high school? High school – those are your prime suffering years. You don’t get better suffering than that.

3. Breaking Away:

Dad: What is this?

Mom: It’s sautéed zucchini.

Dad: It’s I-tey food. I don’t want no I-tey food.

Mom: It’s not. I got it at the A & P. It’s like… squash.

Dad: I know I-tey food when I hear it! It’s all them “eenie” foods… zucchini… and linguine… and fettuccine. I want some American food, dammit! I want French fries!

4. The Blues Brothers:

Curtis: Well, the Sister was right. You boys could use a little churching up. Slide on down to the Triple Rock, and catch Rev. Cleophus. You boys listen to what he’s got to say.

Jake: Curtis, I don’t want to listen to no jive-ass preacher talking to me about Heaven and Hell.

Curtis: Jake, you get wise. You get to church.

5. Coal Miner’s Daughter:

Loretta: I done wrote me a song Betty Sue. Your mama dadgome songwriter now.

Betty Sue Lynn: That’s a nice song Mama.

Loretta: Thank you baby.
