Grey’s Anatomy: 10 Meredith Grey Quotes We Can All Relate To

Grey’s Anatomy is known for many things: Steamy romances, dreamy doctors, and fascinating medical cases set to an awesome soundtrack. Another vital aspect of the long-running drama is its undeniably quotable dialogue. Most fans have several favorite lines to choose from. Some of these quotes were said by Meredith to another person, but the majority of them come from the show’s trademark voiceovers, which always make it feel like her words could apply to anyone.

Grey’s has featured a revolving cast of characters over the course of its 15 seasons (and counting) run. One of the longest-lasting constants was the woman at the show’s center: Meredith Grey. Viewers can relate so much to Meredith, in large part because she’s not perfect. Mer is a flawed human being just like the rest of us – though she has excellent writers to give voice to her inner turmoil.

10 They say death is hardest on the living…

Full Quote:

They say death is hardest on the living. It’s tough to actually say goodbye. Sometimes it’s impossible. You never really stop feeling the loss. It’s what makes things so bittersweet. We leave little bits of ourselves behind, little reminders. A lifetime of memories, photos, trinkets. Things to remember us by even when we’re gone.

If you live long enough, you will eventually have to suffer the loss of someone you love. Anyone who’s been through this knows that death is, indeed, hardest on the living. While we find ways to survive the unbearable pain, there are pieces of that loved one that will never truly die, because we carry them with us for the rest of our lives. Grief isn’t something that people get over, so much as something that they eventually learn to live with.

The writers of Grey’s Anatomy have always excelled when it comes to twisting the knife, killing off beloved characters such as Mark Sloan, Lexie Grey, George O’Malley and, of course, Derek Shepherd. This Season 9, Episode 1 quote perfectly embodies theses feelings of loss, as well as the bittersweet memories that accompany them.

9 Your choice, it’s simple, her or me…

Full Quote:

Okay, here it is. Your choice, it’s simple, her or me. And I’m sure she’s really great. But Derek, I love you, in a really, really big ‘pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window,’ unfortunate way that makes me hate you …love you. So pick me. Choose me. Love me.

Rarely has a declaration of love been made so plainly as this quote from Season 2, Episode 5. Season 1 ended with the mammoth twist that Derek was married and the next year saw him trapped between his duty to work things out with his wife and his undeniable love for Meredith.

Anyone who’s ever been in love the way that Meredith describes here can relate to her sentiments and everyone who’s had their heart broken knows just how crushed she was when Derek choose Addison. Mer made herself extremely vulnerable, but she never badmouthed Addison and even incorporated a Say Anything reference.

8 We have to learn our own lessons…

Full Quote:

We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug until we can’t anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering. That waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst, most intractable mistake beats the hell out of never trying.

This Season 1, Episode 6 line refers to Benjamin Franklin’s oft-quoted statement, “Never leave that ’til tomorrow, which you can do today.” We’re all guilty of procrastinating, of putting things off as long as we possibly can. This quote really sums up what’s at the heart of Grey’s Anatomy in general.

The characters at the center of the series make so many mistakes, but there’s no denying how hard they try to save lives, to find love, and just to survive. Meredith’s right, of course. No matter how epically we may fail, it’s still better than not trying at all.

7 Time waits for no man…

Full Quote:

Time waits for no man. Time heals all wounds. All any of us want, is more time. Time to stand up. Time to grow up. Time to let go. Time.

This line from Season 3’s premiere episode is something that everyone can relate to. Ultimately, all any of want is more time. Whether it’s more time in the day, more time to spend with our loved ones or more time to become the person we want to be, all of us struggle with the finite number of minutes which we are given.

The end of Season 2 saw fan-favorite Denny Duquette run out of time completely, the ramifications of which were still being felt as the 3rd season began. This episode is even appropriately titled, “Time Has Come Today.”

6 Adapt or die…

Full Quote:

Adapt or die. As many times as we’ve heard it, the lesson doesn’t get easier. Problem is, we’re human. We want more than just to survive. We want success. We want to be the best we can be so we fight like hell to get those things. Anything else feels like death.

It is true that change is the only real constant in life. Some of us are great at rolling with the majority of what is thrown at us, while others struggle with the slightest changeup to a well-known routine. Once again, the writers point out that we’re only human, which means we can’t help but strive for more than mere survival.

RELATED: Grey’s Anatomy: 10 Times Meredith Was Actually A Jerk

This line comes from Season 7, Episode 21 and perfectly illustrates more than just what challenges the characters face. The quote could also be talking about Grey’s itself. This series has endured far longer than most and has constantly managed to adapt to change, with its ever-evolving cast, as well as the world itself, which is quite different than it was when Grey’s Anatomy was initially conceived.

5 You can seek the advice of others…

Full Quote:

You can seek the advice of others, surround yourself with trusted advisers, but in the end, the decision is always yours and yours alone. And when it’s time to act and you’re all alone with your back against the wall, the only voice that matters is the one in your head. The one telling you what you probably already knew. The one that’s almost always right.

This quote from Season 8, Episode 16 makes the point that no matter how many people we consult, our choices are ultimately our own. No one else can truly take responsibility for the decisions that we make. We all have that voice in our heads constantly telling us what to do. Sometimes we listen, but other times, we ignore it completely.

Every character on Grey’s has made poor decisions, but viewers keep rooting for them because we’ve all made similar mistakes. Maybe the voice in our heads does know what’s best for us, but sometimes it’s difficult to hear it over all that outside noise.

4 When we go without certain things long enough, it’s easy to forget just how much we need them…

Full Quote:

When we go without certain things long enough, it’s easy to forget just how much we need them. We forget what we had once. We forget what it’s like to live with a thing, not that we need, but that we want. That’s why it’s so important for us to remind ourselves, for us to remember, just because we can live without something, it doesn’t mean we have to.

Season 11 was a rough time for Meredith and Derek, with fans being unsure if their relationship could even survive. This quote from Episode 17 highlights the idea that just because we are capable of living without something, doesn’t mean that we have to.

RELATED: Every Sizzling Season Of Grey’s Anatomy So Far, Ranked

It’s true that if you spend enough time without something or someone that you love, it becomes easy to deny how much it means to you. During their struggles, Mer did learn that she could live without her husband. She also decided that she didn’t want to. Sadly, Derek’s life ended not long after she came to this realization.

3 What’s worse?

Full Quote:

What’s worse? New wounds, which are so horribly painful, or old wounds that should have healed years ago and never did? Maybe our old wounds teach us something. They remind us where we’ve been and what we’ve overcome. They teach us lessons about what to avoid in the future. That’s what we like to think, but that’s not the way it is, is it? Some things we just have to learn over and over and over again.

This quote comes from Season 3’s 18th episode, with Meredith wondering which wounds are worse, the old or the new. She also makes the point that while we all may think that we’ve learned from past choices, that’s not always the case, because we are often doomed to repeat them anyway.

Over the course of 15 seasons, fans have indeed seen the doctors of Seattle Grace (now Grey Sloan Memorial) learning the same lessons on several occasions, despite the deep wounds caused the first time around. However, some of the show’s most enduring romances would never have survived if these characters had chosen differently. So, in certain cases, viewers are grateful that their favorite players are sometimes a bit hardheaded.

2 I think you can’t wait for someone to fly underneath you and save your life. I think you have to save yourself.

We all want to be rescued sometimes, but if Grey’s Anatomy has taught us anything, it’s that sometimes you need to be your own hero. The series is full of amazingly strong characters who have all evolved quite a bit over the years. It helps that they’ve got each other to rely on, but this line from Season 2, Episode 8 really leans into the idea of depending on yourself.

RELATED: Grey’s Anatomy: Most Heartbreaking Deaths, Ranked

Sometimes when all seems lost, many of us just wait for the solution to magically appear. Unfortunately, that means that most of us know how it feels to be disappointed by the sad fact that if we want something to change, we’ve got to change it for ourselves.

1 You don’t get to call me a whore…

Full Quote:

You don’t get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done. So all the boys, and all the bars, and all the obvious daddy issues, who cared? Because I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I’m all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don’t get to call me a whore.

Meredith said this to Derek in Season 2’s 24th episode and it was a truly inspired moment. Derek had chosen Addison over her but then had the audacity to judge her quite harshly for the way that she had attempted to move on. He never had the right to call her a whore and how she chose to repair the damage done was none of his business.

It would’ve been easy for Mer to crumble at this moment, but she did not. Instead, she told Derek exactly how she felt and made it clear that his bitter comments were unacceptable. Really, Derek was just jealous, but nothing about the way he spoke to Meredith was okay and it’s awesome that she let him know that with such certainty.

10 Fabulous Quotes From The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Rocky Horror Picture Show was released over 40 years ago but is now as popular as ever before. The film follows Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon) as they go on a road trip after getting engaged and get stranded at Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s mansion. The film received mixed reviews upon its release but quickly developed a cult following.

RELATED: Tim Curry Was Disappointed By IT TV Miniseries Ending

With hidden meanings about the glam rock movement and gender expression, there is plenty to dissect in each viewing. The musical was rebooted as a TV movie in 2016 but received mainly negative reviews. The original, however, is still highly regarded due to the original musical from Richard O’Brien and the screenplay from O’Brien and Jim Sharman. Here are 10 fabulous quotes from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

10 ‘I WOULD LIKE, IF I MAY, TO TAKE YOU ON A STRANGE JOURNEY’

Since he is the narrator, the Criminologist wasn’t actually there at the time of the events at Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s mansion, but he still had some memorable lines in the film.

In his very first line, the Criminologist opens by saying, “I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey”, which is a great way to begin the story that is about to unfold. His opening line is unforgettable, but so is his final line of the film, “And crawling on the planet’s face, some insects called the human race. Lost in time. And lost in space… and meaning.”

9 ‘THAT’S A RATHER TENDER SUBJECT. ANOTHER SLICE, ANYONE?’

One of the more memorable songs comes near the middle of the movie when Dr. Frank-N-Furter kills Eddie. The scene itself can be taken as a metaphor for Glam Rock taking over rock ’n’ roll and the song “Hot Patootie-Bless My Soul” is one of the catchier songs of the film. Eventually, Dr. Everett von Scott comes looking for his nephew Eddie and sits down for supper at Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s mansion.

When he asks about Eddie, Columbia exclaims, “Eddie!” before Frank-N-Furter’ revs an electric knife at her and says, “That’s a rather tender subject. Another slice, anyone?”. The line is witty since it is soon after revealed that the guests are actually eating slices of Eddie, whose body is underneath the glass table.

8 ‘I’LL TELL YOU ONCE, I WON’T TELL YOU TWICE. YOU BETTER WISE UP JANET WEISS’

Towards the end of the film, the song “Planet Schmanet, Janet” is sung by Dr. Frank-N-Furter. It’s no secret that the Doctor is a jealous person, so when Janet runs to Rocky when she gets scared from seeing Eddie’s dead body, Frank-N-Furter has an issue.

RELATED: Tim Curry is ‘Fascinated’ To See IT Movie’s Version of Pennywise

He chases after her and starts singing, “I’ll tell you once, I won’t tell you twice. you better wise up Janet Weiss.” Frank-N-Furter chases her to his lab where he then says “The transducer will seduce ya” before he flips the switch and Brad, Janet, and Dr. Scott are all stuck in their place.

7 ‘THERE’S A LIGHT, OVER AT THE FRANKENSTEIN PLACE’

After the Criminologist introduces the story, Brad and Janet are seen driving through a storm in the middle of the night. After their car gets a flat, they have no choice but to trek through the storm to try to find help. As they are walking through the rain, they see a light in the distance coming from Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s mansion.

They break into song and sing, “There’s a light” as the Transylvanians sing back, “Over at the Frankenstein’s place.” Needless to say, Brad and Janet wouldn’t have been so thankful if they knew what was in store for them.

6 ‘IN JUST SEVEN DAYS, I CAN MAKE YOU A MAN. DIG IT IF YOU CAN’

Peter Hinwood had a very short-lived acting career, but his most famous role by far was Rocky in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Rocky was the muscular creation from Dr. Frank-N-Furter who was rather dimwitted. Shortly after Rocky is born, Dr. Frank-N-Furter gives him a set of weights and breaks out into song.

RELATED: The 10 Best Indie Horror Movies Of All Time, According To IMDb

Frank-N-Furter is mainly talking about how Rocky will keep his impeccable muscles in shape, but his most famous lyric in the song is, “In just seven days, I can make you a man. Dig it if you can!”. Unfortunately though, Rocky doesn’t stay as faithful to Dr. Frank-N-Furter as he had hoped.

5 ‘GREAT SCOTT!’

Christopher Lloyd may have popularized that phrase “Great Scott!” in 1985 for Back to the Future, but The Rocky Horror Picture Show included the line ten years earlier. When Dr. Everett V. Scott (played by Jonathan Adams) first appears in the film, he makes quite an entrance.

He comes smashing through the wall of Frank-N-Furter’s lab and then rolls down the long ramp. Right when Scott smashes through the wall, Brad exclaims, “Great Scott!” since he wasn’t expecting to see him in Frank-N-Furter’s mansion. Dr. Scott is looking for his nephew Eddie, but unfortunately, he had just been killed a few scenes prior.

4 ‘HOT PATOOTIE, BLESS MY SOUL! I REALLY LOVE THAT ROCK N’ ROLL!’

Frank-N-Furter cut out half of Eddie’s brain to give to Rocky but then ends up murdering Eddie with an ice pick. Before that, however, Eddie smashes through the freezer on his motorcycle and breaks into song and dance. The only song that the character Eddie (played by Meat Loaf) sang for the entire movie was called “What Ever Happened to Saturday Night?” also known as “Hot Patootie, Bless My Soul.” The entire song is catchy and even includes a saxophone solo from Eddie, but the best line in the song is the chorus, Hot patootie, bless my soul! I really love that rock n’ roll!”.

3 ‘DAMMIT, JANET, I LOVE YOU’

Brad and Janet are two characters that are forced to confront their homosexual and bisexual urges throughout the film. At first, however, they are seen as a cookie-cutter suburban couple. After they attend a wedding and Janet catches the flower bouquet, Brad proposes to her during a catchy musical number.

The chorus of the song, “Damnit, Janet, I love you” is one of the most recognized lines from the film. That being said, Janet’s line, “Brad, I’m mad for you too” isn’t quite as catchy. After that, they begin their trip to see Dr. Scott, so the fun hadn’t really even begun at that point.

2 ‘SO COME UP TO THE LAB AND SEE WHAT’S ON THE SLAB. I SEE YOU SHIVER WITH ANTICI…PATION’

Soon after Brad and Janet are introduced to Riff Raff, Magenta, and the rest of the party-goers, they meet the host of the party, who introduces himself as a “sweet transvestite.” With Janice and Brad being innocent newlyweds, they are visibly uncomfortable with Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s appearance, but he is clearly very comfortable in his skin, despite him being an alien.

The song Sweet Transvestite” is probably the most famous song of the film behind “The Time Warp” and the line, “So come up to the lab and see what’s on the slab. I see you shiver with antici…….. PATION!” is delivered perfectly by Tim Curry.

1 ‘LET’S DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN!’

The most popular song to come out of The Rocky Horror Picture Show is arguably “The Time Warp.” When Brad and Janet first arrive to Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s mansion, they are greeted by Riff Raff. Riff Raff begins the song by singing, “It’s astounding, time is fleeting. Madness takes its toll,” but the tempo of the song quickly picks up from there.

After Riff Raff and Magenta rush through the doors to the main ballroom, Brad and Janet see all of the people attending the Annual Transylvanian Convention. The song continues with Riff Raff, Magenta, Columbia, and company singing the famous line, “Let’s do the time warp again.”

10 Funniest Quotes From The Hangover Part III | ScreenRant

After Todd Phillips and Warner Bros. had another success with The Hangover Part II, they decided to end the series with a third and final film. The Hangover Part II was criticized for basically being a copy of The Hangover, but it still made a big profit at the box office.

RELATED: 10 Most Hilarious Quotes From The Hangover

Despite The Hangover Part III having an original story, the film received mostly poor reviews and didn’t make nearly as much as the first two films at the box office. Even though Part III is often regarded as the worst in the series, the film still had a handful of lines that were humorous. Here are the 10 Funniest Quotes From The Hangover Part III.

10 “YOU MISS CHOW?”

After Marshall takes Doug, the gang are sent to go find Mr. Chow, who recently escaped from prison. Alan is the only one from The Wolfpack who keeps in contact with Chow, so they set up a meeting with him at a bus stop in Mexico. Chow told Alan to come alone, but with Alan not being able to keep a secret, Chow quickly finds out that Stu and Phil are sitting in a car watching their meeting.

Chow goes over and breaks Phil’s windshield and starts to threaten them, but Phil is able to calm him down by telling him that he and the guys just miss him. Chow calms down and sadly mutters, “You miss Chow?” as he puts his hand up against the window.

9 “MY NAME’S ALAN AND I BOUGHT A GIRAFFE”

While Alan was obnoxious and dangerous in the first two Hangover movies, he was out of control in The Hangover Part III. This led many people to find the character more irritating than funny the third time around, but he still had his moments.

Early on in the film, Alan can be seen driving down the highway with a giraffe in a cage being pulled behind his car. When he sees a child in the car next to him looking up at his giraffe, Alan is ecstatic and yells, “My name’s Alan and I bought a giraffe.” While he was happy, anybody who has seen the film knows that things get traumatic for Alan, and the giraffe, rather quickly.

8 “THEY’RE ANGRY. ALL I FEED THEM IS COCAINE… AND CHICKEN”

Bad things always seem to happen when the guys meet up with Mr. Chow. In Part III, Chow is hiding out in Mexico and says he got into cockfighting. The joke is dropped relatively quickly until they get back to Mr. Chow’s place and talk about the plan to steal Marshall’s gold.

RELATED: The 10 Funniest Quotes From The Hangover Part II

Alan goes to sit down on a box behind him that ends up being chicken cages. The guys are all attacked by the chickens and Mr. Chow even smothers one of them with a pillow. Phil then asks what is wrong with the animals to which Mr. Chow responds, “They’re angry. All I feed them is cocaine… and chicken.”

7 “I CAN THINK OF SO MANY PEOPLE I WOULD RATHER HAVE DIED FIRST… LIKE MY MOTHER”

Despite Alan being a 42-year-old man, he is still very dependent on his parents and still lives at home. After Alan’s little fiasco with the giraffe on the highway, Sid tells his son that he can either go back on his medication or he will cut him off from his money. Sid tells Alan that he and his mother can’t take it anymore and walks away, but then he has a heart attack.

Alan beautifully sings at his father’s funeral, but then has a not-so-pleasant speech. Alan starts off by saying, “I can’t believe my daddy is dead. I can think of so many people I would rather have died first… like my mother.”

6 “CAN YOU TAKE STU INSTEAD?”

After the guys recover from their stunt in Las Vegas in 2009, Mr. Chow continues to wreak havoc with people associated with the Wolfpack. After Chow kidnaps Black Doug, he gets wind of Marshall’s heist to steal $42 million in gold bars from an Abu Dhabi Sheikh.

Chow ends up stealing half of the loot by posing as a cop and pulling over one of Marshall’s vans. Marshall blames The Wolfpack for Chow’s activity, so he forces them to track him down and takes Doug as collateral. Alan clearly enjoys spending time with Doug more than Stu so he asks, “Can you take Stu instead?”

5 “YEAH STU, TRY NOT HAVING SUCH BIG HORSE TEETH”

While Stu usually tells Alan how stupid he is, Alan constantly told Stu how dumb he thought he was in The Hangover Part III. After Stu comes back from the pharmacist with Demerol and a pack of syringes, he asks if Alan and Phil have heard anything from Chow. Clearly not seeing the urgency in their situation, Alan pulls out his phone and says he got an email from Chow 20 minutes ago saying to meet him in Tijuana.

Initially thinking it was a bad idea, Phil says the location is perfect since it is only three hours from them. Alan then makes fun of Stu for not being able to read a map. Stu then says, “Yeah Alan, try reading… anything, ever.” Clearly not being able to think of a good comeback, Alan just replies, “Yeah Stu, try not having such big horse teeth.

4 “PLUS SHE LETS ME MOUNT HER, WHICH RELAXES ME”

The first Hangover saw Doug get married to his soulmate, Part II showed Stu marrying his, and The Hangover Part III ends with Alan getting ready for his wedding. The final scene of the movie is one of the best as it sees Alan developing into a more mature adult by resigning from the Wolfpack.

Alan breaks the news to the guys and says, “She’s my soulmate and my new best friend.  Plus she lets me mount her, which relaxes me.” Phil’s reaction is just as funny as he laughs and says “Oh my god” before Doug pipes in and mentions that maybe Alan shouldn’t say that again.

3 “AT THE TIME I THOUGHT IT WAS CHOW LIKE GOODBYE. YOU KNOW LIKE CIAO, ARRIVEDERCI, SBARRO, PAPA JOHN’S”

As the search for Mr. Chow begins, Alan, Stu, and Phil stop for gas. Alan runs inside to get snacks while Stu and Phil argue about the plan. Alan comes back outside and interrupts, saying he thinks he might have gotten an email from Chow a few days ago, but he wasn’t sure it was from him.

RELATED: 10 Funniest Quotes From Adam Sandler’s Billy Madison

Phil reads the email which is signed Chow. Phil and Stu are baffled as to how Alan didn’t know it was from Mr. Chow, to which Alan explains, “At the time I thought it was Chow like goodbye. You know like ciao, arrivederci, Sbarro, Papa John’s.”

2 “THAT’S MY PASSWORD. HEY PHIL”

Ever since the first movie, Alan made it painfully clear that he had a man-crush on Phil. Alan basically looks up to Phil and tries to act and look like him, which can be seen when Alan tries to make his hair look like Phil’s at Doug’s wedding.

After realizing he left his phone in the minivan Chow stole, Phil asks Alan for his phone to use the “Find My Friends” feature. Phil asks Alan what his password is to which Alan answers, “Hey Phil.” Thinking Alan is asking him something, Alan has to clarify, “That’s my password. Hey Phil.”

1 “NOTHING HURTS CHOW. I AM INVISIBLE”

After Alan and Phil manage to sneak into Chow’s penthouse suite at Caesar’s Palace, they corner Chow on his balcony. Chow is dangerously standing on the edge, so Phil and Alan are clearly concerned and tell him to get down before he gets hurt.

Being under the influence of cocaine, Chow says, “Nothing hurts Chow. I am invisible.” Phil tells him the word is “invincible” not invisible and tells him to get down before he dies. Chow responds, “Die? How do you kill, what’s already dead?” flips them off, and then parachutes down the Las Vegas strip.

The Notebook’s 10 Most Romantic Quotes, Ranked | ScreenRant

The Notebook is often cited as one of the best, most romantic dramas out there. While the book by Nicolas Sparks was quite popular, it was really the blockbuster film interpretation that made this story so important to the pop culture canon. The story of Allie and Noah and their love that was able to last through a lifetime (and many things that tried to keep them apart) was one that many people found beautiful and relatable.

RELATED: Most Sob-Inducing Nicholas Sparks Movies, Ranked

It’s no wonder that the book and movie were filled with romantic quotes that would make almost anyone swoon. We’ve put together a list of the 10 most romantic quotes from The Notebook that will remind you of how romantic this story really is.

10 “IF YOU’RE A BIRD, I’M A BIRD.”

One of the things that made The Notebook so compelling was the portrayal of the lead characters, Allie and Noah (by Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling respectively). These two had a lot of on-screen chemistry that made this love story believable.

One iconic scene from the movie is when the two of them are at the beach and Allie pretends to be a bird. Noah then says this line to her that reminds her that they are in this together and that he will go along with what she needs him to be.

9 “IT WAS REAL, WASN’T IT? YOU AND ME.”

Another thing that made the story of The Notebook so powerful was how these two were able to overcome everything that tore them apart to be together in the end. Relationships can be difficult, and they all have their own struggles.

When Allie and Noah meet again years later, Allie says this line to him. This romantic quote shows that despite the time and distance, the feelings these two had for each other were very strong. The quote continues with, “such a long time ago, we were just a couple of kids. But we really loved each other, didn’t we?”

8 “THE BEST LOVE IS THE KIND THAT AWAKENS THE SOUL; THAT MAKES US REACH FOR MORE; THAT PLANTS A FIRE IN OUR HEARTS AND BRINGS PEACE TO OUR MINDS.”

This might be one of the most romantic quotes from the movie. This is a general quote that speaks to the feeling of love and how it impacts people.

This line reflects on the fact that true love should bring both passion as well as peace. It should also inspire people to want to do and be more. The relationship between Allie and Noah is definitely one that inspired them both to break free of their own constraints and perceptions.

7 “WHAT DO YOU WANT?”

This entire quote reads, “stop thinking about what I want, what he wants, what your parents want. What do you want?” This dramatic line comes from a scene after Allie and Noah have reunited but when Allie is still engaged to Lon Hammond.

RELATED: Which Nicholas Sparks Movie Are You, Based On Your MBTI

Noah reminds Allie to think about herself and what she wants. Loving someone is often about respecting what they want and need, and Noah reminding her to follow her own desires is definitely powerful.

6 “I’VE LOVED ANOTHER WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL, AND TO ME, THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN ENOUGH.”

The Notebook is told in two different time periods. One story is the current time period where Allie and Noah are elderly, and the other is in flashbacks looking back on their story and how they got together. The beginning of the movie begins with this romantic monologue:

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.”

5 “YOU ARE EVERY REASON, EVERY HOPE, AND EVERY DREAM I’VE EVER HAD.”

This is another one of those lines from the movie that is deeply romantic and insightful. This line is from Noah about Allie, and it’s definitely a strong one. The entire quote continues, “I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, every day we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.”

This quote speaks to how love can change you for the better. Clearly, the love Noah has for Allie is deep and real.

4 “BUT DESPITE THEIR DIFFERENCES, THEY HAD ONE IMPORTANT THING IN COMMON. THEY WERE CRAZY ABOUT EACH OTHER.”

When Allie and Noah first meet, they are both young and wild. They don’t always have a smooth-sailing relationship and their personalities sometimes clash.

The narrator, who is Noah from the future, talks about how they didn’t often agree on many things and were always challenging and fighting each other. But, in a way, this is good for them, as they both pushed each other to be better and improve.

3 “I WROTE YOU 365 LETTERS. I WROTE YOU EVERYDAY FOR A YEAR. IT WASN’T OVER… IT STILL ISN’T OVER.”

If there is one thing from The Notebook that many people remember, it’s Noah writing all of those letters. Of course, Allie never got those letters as her mother kept them from her, which is especially infuriating as their continued separation wasn’t something they chose.

Noah says this dramatic line to Allie before going in for that iconic kiss. It’s definitely clear that these two have a deep passion for one another.

2 “I THINK OUR LOVE CAN DO ANYTHING WE WANT IT TO.”

The Notebook has both a sad and happy ending. It’s happy because Noah and Allie were able to be together and live a long, full life. But, Allie’s Alzheimers is crushing to see and watching these two pass away is also rough.

However, seeing them die at the same time was romantic and heartbreaking at the same time. When Noah says this line to Allie in her brief moment of remembering him, it’s extremely powerful.

1 “SO IT’S NOT GONNA BE EASY. IT’S GONNA BE REALLY HARD.”

This entire quote reads, “so it’s not gonna be easy, it’s gonna be really hard. And we’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I wanna do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever. You and me. Everyday.” This line might be the best-known and most powerful from the movie.

Noah says this to Allie as she is about to leave him again, and the interchange in this scene between them is especially raw emotionally. The way he implores her to work through the tough things with him is definitely a swoon-worthy moment.

10 Funniest Quotes From Old School | ScreenRant

Old School is one of the funniest comedies of the 2000s and one of the films that helped kick off the so-called Frat Pack group of comedy. Starring Luke Wilson, Vince Vaughn, and Will Ferrell, the movie was about some middle-aged friends who start a college fraternity which turns them into legends.

The high concept is bolstered by the fantastic cast, especially the three leads. Their individual style of comedy helps to make this an unforgettable and hilarious film. There are so many laugh-out-loud moments and one-liners that have become iconic even after all these years. Relive the frat boy fun with the funniest quotes from Old School.

10 “I’m here for the g**g-b**g.”

The film starts with a bang, so to speak, with Mitch (Luke Wilson) returning home from a business trip and finding an unexpected surprise. He walks into his bedroom to find his girlfriend watching adult movies. While he is initially excited by the idea, that excitement quickly turns to horror as a group of blindfolded people, sans clothes, emerge from the closet.

To find out that your partner is cheating on you is bad enough, but to find out just how much she was getting up to behind your back must really sting. To add to the terrible situation, a last-minute guest arrives at the door saying, “I’m here for the g**g-b**g.” There’s no denying it at that point.

9 “What, I thought we were in the trust tree in the nest, were we not?”

One of the funniest sub-plots of the movie is Frank (Will Ferrell) finding that his hard-partying ways are damaging his new marriage. Frank’s wife is having a hard time coping with the various shenanigans he is getting involved in and they eventually go to marriage counseling.

As the counselor ensures them that they are in a safe space where they should share openly, Frank decides to share what is one his mind lately. He goes into great detail about how he daydreams about other women and their underpants. He quickly learns that the so-called “trust tree” has its limits.

8 “See, I’m the first one to go to college in my family and when I left she said, “Weensie, if you screw this up, I’ll kill you.””

The exploits of the new fraternity soon catch the attention of the college Dean, who has a bitter history with Mitch and his friends. As a way to punish them, he declares the fraternity is to be shut down and all members expelled from the school.

One of the frat boys, Weensie, takes this particularly badly, saying that his mother will kill him. The others reassure him that he’s overexaggerating, but Weensie explains that his mother made that point perfectly clear. That’s a pretty intense way to motivate your children’s education.

7 “Just ring the f**king bell, you pansy.”

It’s clear that the frat’s stand-out member is Blue. The extremely old veteran proves to be as passionate about the fraternity as any of the young members and participates in all the activities, no matter how dangerous. However, the mud-wrestling contest they hold for his birthday bash proves to be too much for the old man.

As he steps into the ring, Frank questions if he’s actually up for this kind of activity. Blue bluntly responds with his final words, “just ring the f**king bell, you pansy.” Blue was a man that knew what he wanted, even if it killed him.

6 “You just took one in the jugular, man.”

While the whole cast of Old School helps to make this movie so great, Will Ferrell really steals the show. Frank is such a mess that Ferrell is given plenty of outrageous and hilarious situations to deal with. One of the funniest moments comes when Frank is talking with an animal wrangler (Seann William Scott).

RELATED: 10 Funniest Quotes From Pineapple Express

Despite the tame petting zoo animals that he takes care of, the wrangler is very excited by the prospect of getting to use his tranquilizer gun on one of them. Of course, it’s Frank who accidentally shoots himself with the gun directly in the jugular.

5 “And finally, why is the other end of this string tied securely to your p***s?”

As with any frat movie, there needs to be a hazing sequence for their new recruits. After violently abducting the wannabe frat members, the men take them to the top of one of the college buildings for a terrifying test of their trust in each other.

Each member stands at the edge of the building holding a cement block tied to a rope. The other end of the rope is then tied to their p***s. They are then told to drop the cement blocks and trust that they have been given enough rope to prevent any unwanted pulling.

4 “You’re my boy, Blue!”

Frank proves to be the most intense member of the fraternity and takes a lot of pleasure in ordering the pledges around and yelling at them constantly. One member that he seems to take a strange liking to is Blue. So, naturally, Blue’s death in the tragic wrestling mishap hits Frank pretty hard.

In a touching and hilarious tribute, Frank soulfully sings “Dust in the Wind” at Blue’s funeral. Breaking down at the end, Frank cries out “you’re my boy, Blue.” The line has become one of the most quoted lines from the movie and made it impossible to listen to that song in the same way ever again.

3 “Once it hits your lips, it’s so good!”

When we meet Frank at the beginning of the movie, he is a mild-manner guy who seems to be comfortably settling into domestic life. However, we get a hint that he might have had wilder days in the past. His wife worries that his old hard-partying persona “Frank the Tank” might resurface.

RELATED: 10 Funniest Quotes From The 40-Year-Old Virgin

During the first party in Mitch’s new house, Frank is invited to do a beer bong with some of the younger guys. He eventually relents and Frank the Tank returns. Seeing Ferrell’s gleeful reaction to chugging the beer is hilarious.

2 “Earmuffs.”

Despite being the most successful member of the group and being a family man, Beanie (Vince Vaughn) is the most involved member of the fraternity. He is the one who comes up with the idea in the first place and plans out all the wild activities. He manages to balance his other responsibilities by bringing his children along to the frat events.

A frat house might not seem like the best place to bring a kid, but Beanie has it covered. When he says “earmuffs” to his kids, they cover their ears and everyone can swear all they want. It’s a great running gag and a fun parenting tip (not really).

1 “We’re going streaking!”

When you think of Old School, it’s impossible not to think about this scene. During an epic concert at Mitch’s house, Frank is reintroduced to beer and comes up with a great idea. As Snoop Dogg performs on stage for the crowd, a very drunk Frank comes out and declares “we’re going streaking!

After trying to get Snoop to join in, Frank runs off for a one-man streaking adventure. This may be the moment that cemented Ferrell as a comedy superstar and gave the movie its most iconic moment.

Outlander: 10 Jamie & Claire Quotes That Prove They Are Relationship Goals

Outlander is one of the most romantic shows on television. Not only is the backdrop of Scotland in the 18th-century sweepingly romantic, but so is the love story that is featured at the core of the show between Jamie and Claire.

The WWII time-traveling nurse who falls for the 18th-century Highlander Scotsman has a story for the ages. And throughout both the series and the books, the two have poured their hearts out to one another about their love for each other.

We will be going through the two lovers’ most romantic quotes of all time about one another. Here are the 10 Jamie And Claire Quotes That Prove They Are Relationship Goals.

10 Jamie: “I Can Bear Pain Myself, But I Couldna Bear Yours. That Would Take More Strength Than I Have.”

If there is one thing everyone should look for in a partner, it’s their unflinching support in every circumstance. Particularly when talking about going through something such as childbirth.

Here, Jamie lays it all out on the line while they discuss their future during their trip to Jamie’s home — Lallybroch — in season 1. Claire believes she cannot provide Jamie with any children. We know now that isn’t true, but since that was what she believed, he reassured her it was okay.

But he also thought it might be for the best, since he literally couldn’t take seeing her in any pain. That in itself is beyond romantic.

9 Claire: “He Had Called Me That From The First; The Gaelic Word For Outlander, A Stranger. An Englishman. First In Jest, Then In Affection.”

I think we all are well aware what pet name Jamie gave Claire from the start of their friendship turned relationship: Sassenach. In actuality, the term is typically used in a negative connotation. It is meant to make someone feel unwelcome, particularly if they are English and in Scotland.

RELATED: Chicago Fire: Best & Worst Relationships

Jamie always called Claire this from the very beginning, as Claire states here. But it quickly turned into a term of affection that he only used for her and her alone. It is evident from this quote that she very much enjoys being referred to in this way by her Highlander husband.

8 Jamie: “Does It Ever Stop? The Wanting You? Even When I’ve Just Left Ye. I Want You So Much My Chest Feels Tight And My Fingers Ache With Wanting To Touch Ye Again.”

There’s no doubt that Jamie and Claire were experiencing strong lust for one another even before they became fully intimate. Whether they wanted to admit or not. But once they crossed that line and were now husband and wife, Jamie shared his feelings on the matter.

RELATED: Outlander: 10 Facts About Claire & Frank From The Books The Show Leaves Out

It literally pained him to not be touching her. All he wanted was her and to be with her intimately every chance he got. This is when it was becoming clear that the two shared a one-of-a-kind connection and that their love story was merely beginning. They were destined to be together, that much is obvious.

7 Claire: “That Amount Of Time Doesn’t Exist.”

One of the most heart-wrenching parts in Claire and Jamie’s love story on Outlander was when the two were parted — for twenty years. During this time, Claire was technically with Frank again and raising her and Jamie’s daughter, Brianna, with Frank.

RELATED: 10 Powerpuff Girls Quotes That Prove Girls Rule

They ended up arguing one night and Frank asked Claire if she might have forgotten Jamie, “with time?” She replied, “that amount of time doesn’t exist” with zero hesitation. As hard as that must have been for Frank to hear, it was the truth. Claire and Jamie are obviously soulmates and there isn’t a way for one to forget about the other.

6 Jamie: “Ye Werena The First Lass I Kissed, (…) But I Swear You’ll Be The Last.”

Any fan of the Outlander books will immediately recognize this famous Jamie Fraser quote from the first book. See, while Jamie may have gone into his marriage with Claire as a virgin, while she was not, he did have his fair share of experiences kissing women.

Claire comes to find this out when they first kiss, of course. But Jamie makes sure that Claire knows how deep his feelings for her go, and that he only wants to be with her from this day forward, when he utters this line to her.

It’s a sentiment he meant wholeheartedly, to be sure.

5 Claire: “I Longed For Jamie, In A Visceral Way That Had Nothing To Do With Thought Or Reason.”

Much like Jamie felt he could not stand to be even on second away from Claire and her embrace, she, too, felt these strong emotions for Jamie. That is made perfectly clear with this swoon-worthy quote.

RELATED: Stranger Things: Hopper’s 10 Most Memorable Quotes

Most times, with love, there is not a lot of logic when it comes to how someone feels about another person. Especially when they have as deep of a connection as Jamie and Claire have with each other.

So it makes sense that Claire would have these incredibly strong feelings for Jamie, even if she couldn’t explain them fully herself.

4 Jamie: “When The Day Shall Come That We Do Part, If My Last Words Are Not ‘I Love You’ — Ye’ll Ken It Was Because I Didna Have Time.”

This quote comes from Jamie in The Fiery Cross. It is one of the most romantic lines we’ve heard from him, and definitely makes us emotional just thinking about the day he’d have to part from Claire — forever.

Everyone wants a love like Jamie and Claire’s. A love that is so pure and warm and unconditional. And that is exactly what this quote encompasses.

RELATED: Outlander: 10 Hidden Facts About Jamie Only True Fans Noticed

Jamie would be most concerned with Claire knowing how much he loved her rather than meeting his fate, and if that isn’t the most romantic thing you’ve ever heard, I don’t know what is.

3 Claire: “To Be With Jamie Was Bliss, Adventure, And Absorption.”

For anyone who has been in love, they probably know exactly what Claire is talking about in this quote about Jamie. Being with the one you love makes you feel as if you’re alive for the first time.

RELATED: The Office: Jim’s 10 Most Romantic Quotes Ever

Yes, it makes you feel blissful, and with a man like Jamie, clearly there is a lot of adventure involved in that life. But absorption, that is the feeling of love that is nearly indescribable.

Claire feels as though they not only complete one another, but like Jamie is the one for her. In every way imaginable.

2 Jamie: “Your Face Is My Heart, Sassenach And The Love Of You Is My Soul.”

If only all men had a way with words the way Jamie Fraser does. It’s lines like these that make us realize how easy it must have been for Claire to fall in love with him, regardless of her first husband, Frank.

Jamie looks at Claire’s face and immediately feels his love for her in his heart. And the love she has for him gives him life and lives on in his soul.

That is the purest form of romanticism and would make any woman swoon. Claire is very lucky to have found a man as great as Jamie.

1 Claire: “Jamie— I Won’t…I Can’t…I Bloody Won’t Live Without You, And That’s All!”

Claire and Jamie were brave to live apart from one another for two decades, especially since they thought they never would see each other again. But the thought of Jamie and Claire actually having to live without the other is too much for even us fans to bear.

Which is why we completely understand where Claire is coming from in this passionate quote. She refuses to live a life that doesn’t have her husband in it and we can’t exactly blame her for that.

To actually hear Claire refusing to live without Jamie and making that her final statement shows how deep her love for him goes.

The 10 Grooviest Quotes From Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead Trilogy

The 1980s had some highly-praised horror films, one of which was Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead. The film was released in 1981. The film is notorious for its excess gore, which was all done with practical effects. Being friends with Sam and Ted Raimi, Bruce Campbell was chosen for the role of Ash Williams, which has since become the most famous role of his career.

Related: 10 Best Possession Movies

Ash returned in 1987 for Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn, the sequel Army of Darkness in 1992, as well as the TV show Ash vs. Evil Dead in 2015. Throughout Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy, Ash became more humorous and arrogant, resulting in some memorable lines. Here are The 10 Grooviest Quotes From Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead Trilogy.

10 “YEAH, TRULY AMAZING”

Evil Dead II is one of the good examples of how to mix comedy and horror, which is why most of his famous lines come from Dead by Dawn and Army of Darkness. However, one of Ash’s few one-liners in the original Evil Dead is “Yeah, truly amazing”.

The line comes when Shelly and Linda are trying to guess the cards that the other person is holding. After Linda guesses incorrectly, Shelly lies and says she is right. She excitedly tells Ash that she guessed correctly, but he is trying to focus on the recording they found in the basement, so Ash simply responds, “Yeah, truly amazing”.

9 “SWALLOW THIS!”

Henrietta Knowby was a character first introduced in Evil Dead 2. She was the wife of Professor Raymond Knowby, who discovered the Necronomicon. The deadite version of Henrietta was a grotesque overweight demon, played by Ted Raimi.

After Henrietta turns into her fourth form, she grows a long neck, which makes it easier for Ash to cut with his chainsaw arm. As the head is flopping on the ground saying, “I’ll swallow your soul,” Ash takes his shotgun, points it at Henrietta and says, “Swallow this.” The head then explodes in a gory and typical Evil Dead fashion.

8 “YOU’RE GOIN’ DOWN”

Near the beginning of Evil Dead 2, Ash tries to leave the cabin only to discover that the bridge to safety has been destroyed. Ash heads back to the cabin where he finds that Linda’s head has come back to life. Linda bites his hand and won’t let go, so Ash takes her out to the shed and puts her head in a vice.

Related: Why Arielle Carver O’Neill Was Ash’s Daughter (& Not Kelly)

The deadite continues to torment Ash by saying that they have Linda’s soul and that she is suffering. Ash then says, “You’re goin’ down” before reaching for a chainsaw. Unfortunately, the chainsaw isn’t where he thought it was, so he has to fight Linda’s decapitated body to get it back.

7 “THIS… IS MY BOOMSTICK”

As if Ash didn’t have a hard enough time in the first two Evil Dead movies, things get even worse for him when he gets stuck in the year 1300 AD. At the end of Evil Dead 2, Ash gets sucked into a vortex which lands him in the Middle Ages and fights hordes of deadites to get back to the present day.

Upon arriving in 1300 AD, a knight challenges Ash to a sword fight. Ash simply shoots his shotgun at his sword, which cuts it in half and scares everyone since guns hadn’t been invented yet. Ash then says, “Alright you primitive screwheads, listen up! See this? This… is my boomstick!”

6 “YO… SHE B****… LET’S GO”

Initially, Ash wants nothing to do with helping the people in 1300 AD defeat the army of the undead. All he wanted to do was go back to the present day and live his life, but he becomes romantically involved with a woman named Sheila (played by Embeth Davidtz).

Before Ash goes on his journey to find the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, he visits with the Wise Man, but during their meeting, a woman turns into a deadite and threatens Ash. Ash has no trouble killing the deadite with his boomstick, but before he does so, he says, “Yo… She-B****… Let’s go”.

5 “WELL HELLO MR. FANCY PANTS”

Before the people in 1300 AD find out that Ash is their savior, they imprison him and nearly kill him. After binding Ash in a pillory, they lead him to a pit, where they eventually throw him in to fight against a deadite. Before that though, he talks with a fellow prisoner; Henry the Red.

After Henry explains that he is lord of the Northlands and the leader of its citizens, Ash responds sarcastically by saying, “Well hello Mr. Fancy Pants. I got news for you pal, you ain’t leadin’ but two things right now; Jack and s***, and Jack left town.”

4 “GIMME SOME SUGAR BABY”

After having to kill all of his friends in a cabin in the woods, Ash is no doubt fed up with all of the deadites’ non-sense. Ash is significantly smarter than the people from 1300 AD, simply because he’s experienced several things that hadn’t even been invented yet. This causes Ash to have little patience with the people who need his help, constantly calling them primitives.

When Sheila comes to give Ash a cloak she made before he ventures off, he insults her, which results in him getting slapped in the face. Ash runs after Sheila before she leaves his quarters, holds her close and smoothly says, “Gimme some sugar baby”.

3 “SHOP SMART, SHOP S-MART”

Once Ash defeats the pit b****, he climbs out and is challenged by a knight. Ash effortlessly defeats the knight that provoked him by shooting his sword, breaking it in half. With the people unaware of what guns are, he calls it his “boomstick” before going into a long drawn out speech describing the weapon.

Related: Bruce Campbell Reprising Ash Williams One More Time in Evil Dead Video Game

Ash explains, “It’s a twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington, S-Mart’s top-of-the-line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That’s right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It’s got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair-trigger.He ends his monologue by saying,That’s right. Shop Smart. Shop S-Mart.” and screaming, “YA GOT THAT!?”

2 “HAIL TO THE KING, BABY”

 

Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy almost ended very differently than what made it into the theatrical cut. Originally, Ash was going to end up in a post-apocalyptic future after drinking too much of the potion used to return to the present day.

Instead, they had Ash miss a word in the phrase he had to say to get back to his own time, resulting in a deadite attacking S-Mart. Ash heroically takes out the deadite using a shotgun from the Sporting Goods department, before sharing a passionate kiss with a woman he had been talking to before the attack.

1 “GROOVY”

No list of Evil Dead quotes would be complete without mentioning, “Groovy”. The iconic line was first muttered by Ash in Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn. The character builds a modification for a chainsaw, allowing him to attach it where his hand used to be.

Ash then cuts the barrel off of his shotgun before dramatically saying, “Groovy”. The one word one-liner is probably the most well-known quote from the Evil Dead series and was repeated in Army of Darkness and the TV series Ash vs. Evil Dead. Bruce Campbell even returned in a post-credits scene for Fede Alvarez’ Evil Dead remake to say his iconic line.

10 Powerful Quotes From GLOW That Slayed Us | ScreenRant

GLOW‘s third season is coming to Netflix on August 9th, 2019, and we’re more than ready to see the beautiful, hilarious, and strong-as-hell women return. This drama comedy centers around Ruth Wilder as she joins a wrestling television show with her ex-best friend, Debbie Eagan.

RELATED: 10 Brilliant Shows to Watch If You Like GLOW

The show follows the personal (and professional) lives of these powerful women as they struggle through their friendship, their careers, and their lives. Let’s not forget the hilarity and dynamics of all of the other women involved. As season 3 closes in on us, this list shares the 10 best quotes from the currently available two seasons and shows just why this show is a perfect demonstration of women power, personal struggle, and the media industry.

10 Real Parts

Ruth Wilder (Season 1, Episode 1):

What I’m interested in are real parts, not secretaries telling powerful men their wives are on line two.

Ruth Wilder is the epitome of a strong, good-hearted actress trying to make it on the big screen without giving up every last shred of her feminism and dignity. Although she takes on the role of Zoya in the GLOW production, she still firmly believes that she is destined to help make the show more than just women wrestling each other.

Ruth blurts this masterful line after an audition for a part where she accidentally reads the man’s (powerful) part, only to be told by the casting director that she is supposed to read the woman’s line, which is that of a secretary. This line confronts the nature of the industry, and Ruth’s determination to not accept it.

9 Choices

Debbie Eagan (Season 1, Episode 1):

Things don’t just happen. People make choices. They want things, and then they go for them.

Debbie Eagan is another strong force in this series, and that’s probably why she and Ruth can’t just seem to get along. Debbie is full of one-liners, but some of them are much more powerful than others.

Throughout the show, Debbie’s character goes back and forth between hopelessness and acceptance, strength and determination. This quote definitely represents the latter, proving once again that Debbie has ambitions, and you don’t get anywhere unless you work for them.

8 Sleeping Beauty

Sam Sylvia (Season 1, Episode 2):

You’re pretty. You got big boobs, and those soap writers didn’t count on you having brains. Am I right? You asked too many questions, you maybe improvised a few too many lines and then, boom, Sleeping Beauty.

Debbie Eagan (Season 1, Episode 2):

Yeah, if you wanna do something more than nod and eat a salad and make a pretty cry-face, you’re punished.

Although Sam is literally the full embodiment of a creepy, sexist, and selfish television producer, he is also the King of slipping in completely honest and bitter truths. Somehow, this line encompasses sexism, feminism, and a huge push at character development all in one.

Through this conversation, we see Sam’s awareness of the nature of the industry, and we also learn why exactly Debbie got fired from her soap opera. While delivered in a blunt and comical nature, this quote confronts Hollywood in a succinct and powerful way.

7 Here You Are

Sam Sylvia (Season 1, Episode 2):

Now, here you are. You’re ripe. Fecund. A custodian of new life. You’re a… you’re a fertile harvest goddess. Now… pull your shoulders back, and, and strut like you own the ring.

Again, Sam isn’t exactly known for his feminist ideologies, but he sure knows how to get the ladies to perform to their best abilities, even if it means appealing to their biological beauty.

While this line literally cannot help but make you laugh as Marc Maron delivers it with a dry and humorous twist, we still appreciate the notion, and we’re applauding his attempt at appreciating the beauty of a woman’s fertility. These women are all goddesses.

6 It Is For Me

Sheila the She-Wolf (Season 1, Episode 4):

I’ve worn this, or some version of this, every day for the past five years. It’s not a costume. Just me. And what I do in the morning… what I put on, what I wear, it’s not for you. It’s… it is for me.

Sheila spends pretty much all of her screen time keeping to herself, battling ignorance, and struggling to fit in. Finally, Ruth manages to break down some of her walls, and Sheila shares this beautiful truth that all women and men can relate to.

While maybe none of us can directly relate to Sheila, we all know how it feels to struggle with finding yourself, and we can all benefit from thinking like Sheila. You do you boo, and do you well.

5 Push The Envelope

Sam Sylvia (Season 1, Episode 4):

Well, that’s the problem. That’s middle-of-the-road shit. It’s safe. You see, me? I like to push the envelope. I like to jolt people into consciousness.

For such a controversial character, Sam makes this list an impressive number of times. This quote in itself makes for a pretty good life motto.

RELATED: GLOW Characters Sorted into Their Hogwarts Houses

We all could use a bit of ingenuity and spontaneity, and maybe that’s something we could actually take away from Sam (minus the serial sex, cocaine, and bitter loneliness).

4 The Alma Behind The Hitchcock

Ruth Wilder (Season 2, Episode 1):

Alfred Hitchcock and his wife? Alma, you know, the woman behind the man who is as important as the man and really helps the man be great while also getting the job done.

Ruth strikes again with her women-deserve-more-credit ideology; honestly, we can’t get enough of it. When Ruth suggests that she can be the Alma to Sam’s Alfred, he’s pretty confused, but Ruth quickly clears things up.

She doesn’t need to say anything more to show that all women have a role. Even if it’s behind the scenes, they are contributing to greatness. However, we’d also like a little more women up front, but Ruth has that covered, too.

3 People

Rhonda Richardson (Season 2, Episode 5):

Perverts are people, too.

This simple (and admittedly cheeky) quote had to find a slot on this list. Rhonda isn’t exactly the brightest crayon in the box (ironically, of course, contrasting her wrestling character), but this purely innocent line actually carries a lot of weight.

Regardless of someone’s reputation, everyone deserves and needs a little kindness in their lives.

2 A Difference

Ruth Wilder (Season 2, Episode 5):

I’ve been acting pretty much my whole life, and it’s always just another audition, another meeting, another year of waiting for someone to give you permission to do the thing you wanna do. But finally I’m getting to do something, and it feels different, you know? I feel different. Strong. In control.

This is probably Ruth’s best quote in the entire series thus far. It encompasses everything about her character and what it is like to follow your dreams and have ambitions. While she’s specifically talking about acting, this quote can translate to everyone everywhere, regardless of what they’re trying to achieve.

We all deserve a chance at our goals, and sometimes it takes a little longer than anticipated. Like Ruth, you should never give up.

1 “It Shouldn’t Be That Way…”

Debbie Eagan (Season 2, Episode 5):

Men try shit, you have to pretend to like it until you don’t have to anymore.

Ruth Wilder (Season 2, Episode 5):

It shouldn’t be that way.

Debbie Eagan (Season 2, Episode 5):

No, it shouldn’t, and women should get to direct and not be washed up by the time they’re 30, and I should have got to eat a piece of my own wedding cake without worrying about how many minutes of Jane f**king Fonda it was gonna take to work it off, but that is the way it is.

This quote is honestly pretty depressing, but it’s also one of the most powerful ones that GLOW has presented in its first two seasons. There isn’t really a silver lining or a shining hope in this conversation, but it provides an honest, succinct confrontation of the media industry and systemic sexism.

Ruth and Debbie have both been pushed to use their sexuality to move forward due to not being taken seriously because of their gender. These two ladies still give us hope that doesn’t always have to be the case. “It shouldn’t be that way,” and we’re going to work like hell until it isn’t.

Silicon Valley: Gilfoyle’s 10 Most Badass Quotes | ScreenRant

Bertram Gilfoyle, known simply to his group as Gilfoyle, is really an enigma. As the senior security architect for Pied Piper on the HBO series Silicon Valley, he has a highly inflated ego (though he’s able to back it up with stellar work), and he seemingly finds joy in, well, nothing. Except when sparring with Dinesh, that is.

A professed Satanist, he speaks in a monotone, expressionless voice and has an apathetic, pessimistic attitude. But he’ll be there when you need him, even if he’ll make sure to throw an insult (or two) your way any chance he gets.

RELATED: Silicon Valley: 10 Things That Need To Happen Before It Ends 

Because of his attitude, quick wit, and incredible skills, he has had some of the best one-liners of the entire series to date. And we expect them to continue in the sixth and final season, which is expected to air sometime in 2020.

Whether he’s spewing insults, talking about his own rock star skills, or simply touting the benefits of Satanism, here are Gilfoyle’s 10 most badass quotes.

10 What Do I Do?

“It’s not magic, it’s talent and sweat. People like me ensure your packets get delivered unsniffed. So what do I do? I make sure that one bad config on one key component doesn’t bankrupt the entire f*cking company. That’s what the f*ck I do.”

Gilfoyle has no patience for stupidity, so when he’s asked to explain what he does exactly to justify his position in the company while a formal business plan is being formed for Pied Piper, he’s understandably peeved.

Of course, Gilfoyle’s role is integral to the company, and he does ensure that systems work well and are secure. Nevertheless, perhaps he was embellishing just a bit here, over-inflating his importance as a member of the team.

9 We’re All Doomed

“People like to lie, Richard. It’s a war of all against all. The history of humanity is a book written in blood. We’re all just animals in a pit.”

Leave it to Gilfoyle to paint a beautiful picture of life. A self-professed Satanist and someone who never shows himself experiencing any type of joy, Gilfoyle describes life here to Richard in his own despondent words.

He says these words to Richard when Richard realizes that Monica might have lied to him. In all his pessimistic glory, Gilfoyle provides this succinct and depressing answer.

8 An Expression of Joy

“Makes me feel like I’ve died and gone to hell.”

While this might sound as though Gilfoyle is describing a feeling of being upset, this is actually him expressing sheer joy. As a Satanist, to Gilfoyle, the best case scenario after death is to enter the gates of Hell.

Saying this amidst other fellow developers, it does not surprisingly make them comfortable. Gilfoyle seems to thrive on making people feel just so.

7 Passive-Aggressive Insults

“I’m sure you can find your way out with one of your two faces.”

Leave it to Gilfoyle to deliver a seriously biting insult in a monotone voice that, for some reason, hurts twice as hard as if it was coming from someone who was more visibly upset.

Spoken to Monica after she reveals that Pied Piper’s funding has been pulled, Gilfoyle speaks these scathing words to make her question her own integrity. It wasn’t Monica’s fault. But that didn’t really matter to Gilfyole. She was there, and an easy target.

6 Your Misery is My Gain

“I’m effectively leveraging your misery. I’m like the Warren Buffet of f*cking with you.”

Most of Gilfoyle’s best comments come during his exchanges with Dinesh, his frenemy and co-worker. In this case, Gilfoyle relishes in his latest act, which was to contribute a few hundred dollars to a Kickstarter campaign that Dinesh had already contributed thousands to, thinking it would never meet its goal and he’d get his money back.

Gilfoyle not only did a despicable thing just to watch Dinesh squirm but he then twisted the knife in a bit more with this comment.

5 Against Authority

Monica: “Sorry, I don’t mean to rain on the parade.” Gilfoyle: “I find parades to be impotent displays of authoritarianism.”

Only Gilfoyle could respond to a phrase that denotes preventing someone from enjoying an occasion or event with a statement that makes a usually fun affair sound like a terrible thing.

When Monica says these words to him, Gilfoyle isn’t trying to reassure her that she isn’t, in fact, spoiling his day. Rather, he wants her to know that her use of the phrase means nothing to him because, well, parades suck.

4 Money Isn’t Everything

“Why do people covet the silly pieces of green cotton paper in their wallets? It’s because we are all sheep. And we’ve mutually agreed to endow certain things we value.”

It is never about money with Gilfoyle, though he isn’t opposed to buying things if it means he can bring displeasure to others (especially Dinesh!) And you have to hand it to him, sometimes his statements make a lot of sense. Why is it that we spend so much time focused on padding our wallets with pieces of paper that are valued so much by society?

In this one statement, Gilfoyle can make you think and wonder if it’s all worth it. Gee, thanks Gilfoyle!

3 Cryptocurrency Is Where It’s At

“There are very few things that I will defend with true passion: medical marijuana, the biblical Satan as a metaphor for rebellion against tyranny, and mother***** Goddamn cryptocurrency.”

In his plea to Richard that they work in cryptocurrency, Gilfoyle proves how much faith he has in the method of currency by looping it in with two other very important things in his life: Marijuana and Satan.

Gilfoyle also uses the opportunity to promote and justify his Satanism. Satan isn’t bad, according to Gilfoyle. Satan is just a representation of our way to “stick it to the man,” so to speak, and push back against authority and oppression.

2 The AI Takeover

“If the rise of an all-powerful artificial intelligence is inevitable, well it stands to reason that when they take power, our digital overlords will punish those of us who did not help them get there. Ergo, I would like to be a helpful idiot. Like yourself.”

When the guys from Pied Piper start playing in AI, Gilfoyle’s naturally pessimistic view transforms into terror because he believes in the rise of the machines and AI overtaking humanity. But instead of deciding that he wants out, he decides to push on by rectifying his involvement in the best way he can: Using logic.

If AI is coming, no matter what you do, do you really want to be on the wrong side of it? No, you want to show that you were a loyal soldier or, in Gilfoyle’s words, idiot, and helped in the transition. All hail the AI leaders!

1 Ribbing Dinesh

“Since your failure as a leader is a virtual certainty, tolerating your short reign as CEO in exchange for a front-row seat to the disaster seems fair. Plus, if I’m wrong, which I’m not, I get rich. So I’m down with it, Dinesh.”

Arguably one of the few things that bring Gilfoyle true joy is incessantly mocking Dinesh, whether it’s taking aim at his skills as a software engineer, his love life, fashion sense, or elaborate purchases, everything is fair game.

In this case, when Dinesh assumes the role of CEO, Gilfoyle is ready to sit back and let the action happen. Because he’s confident there will be some action. And, spoiler alert, he was right as Dinesh’s short reign as CEO almost single-handedly killed the company when he failed to add a public term of service to the website that included an age limit. Oops!

Gilfoyle covers all his bases. In the event that Dinesh didn’t mess everything up, well, he’d be rich with tons of that insignificant green paper in his wallet. So it was really a win, win.

The Office: Jim’s 10 Most Romantic Quotes Ever | ScreenRant

Jim and Pam are one of television’s most iconic and talked about couples. While The Office was known for its hilarious moments, it was also popular because of how it made audiences care about the stories of the characters. The romance between Jim and Pam was definitely a staple and backbone of the series. Part of why people were so drawn to the couple was because of how much of a romantic Jim could be. He definitely loves Pam, and he wanted to make sure she knew it.

We’ve put together a list of Jim Halpert’s most romantic quotes from the series.

10 “PLAN A WAS MARRYING HER A LONG TIME AGO. PRETTY MUCH THE DAY I MET HER.”

This romantic line is said on the day of Jim and Pam’s wedding at Niagara Falls. Jim talks about how he booked a boat ride to the falls as plan C for their wedding. But, while plan B was getting married in the church, he really wanted to marry her long ago. It took these two a while to get together even though they clearly had feelings for each other for years. So, when they finally tie the knot it was a triumphant moment for them and for fans watching the show.

9 “YOU ARE EVERYTHING.”

While once Jim and Pam got together it seemed like things were mostly smooth sailing for them, season nine of The Office changed this up. This season explored the challenges these two faced as Jim started a new business in Philadelphia.

Many of Jim’s choices caused Pam to doubt if she was enough for Jim. When Jim says that she is his everything, it was a great moment as it made him refocus his priorities back on what really mattered to him most.

8 “I AM ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING VERY BOLD IN THIS JOB THAT I’VE NEVER DONE BEFORE…TRY.”

Jim was always a good salesman at Dunder Mifflin, but he never really tried very hard. Compared to many of the other employees, Jim didn’t really have to do much to be good at his job. However, when he starts dating Pam and makes plans to buy a house and marry her, he starts to put more effort into his job and making money. This is a romantic quote as it shows how Jim is willing to do more and be better because he loves Pam.

7 “I THINK, EVEN THEN I KNEW, I WAS WAITING FOR MY WIFE.”

Definitely the most romantic episodes of The Office were the ones where Jim and Pam get married. During their wedding dinner the night before they tie the knot, Jim gives a speech about how much he cares about Pam. The entire quote reads, “For a really long time that’s all I had. Little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl who I worked with, but I think, even then I knew, I was waiting for my wife.”

This emotional monologue reveals how much Jim cared about Pam all along.

6 “THERE’S ONLY…ONE THING THAT WILL MAKE YOU GIVE UP ON EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW, EVERY RATIONAL CALCULATION.”

In season nine, Dwight and Angela realize once again that they love each other and are right for each other. When Dwight talks to Jim about his worries with this relationship, Jim says another romantic paragraph that reveals how much love means to him.

The entire quote reads, “All I know is that every time I’ve been faced with a tough decision, there’s only one thing that outweighs every other concern. One thing that will make you give up on everything you thought you knew, every instinct, every rational calculation.”

5 “EVERYTHING I HAVE I OWE TO THIS JOB…THIS STUPID, WONDERFUL, BORING, AMAZING JOB.”

Life as an employee of Dunder Mifflin was definitely wild and full of a lot of shenanigans and ridiculous moments. Jim never loved his job there and often complained about it, but, in the end, he realizes he’s grateful for it. Dunder Mifflin gave him the most important things in his life: Pam and their children. Hearing Jim wax a little poetry about life and his job was definitely a tearjerker.

4 “ALL RIGHT, THEN IT’S A DATE.”

In the first couple of seasons of The Office, Jim and Pam aren’t together. Pam is still engaged to Roy, and for fans watching the show, it was just a matter of when and how these two would get together. When Jim moved to Stanford and then started dating Karen, fans had to wait another season before Jim and Pam would start dating. When Jim returns from the interview for the corporate job in New York, he finally asks Pam on a date.

3 “THE FUTURE MOTHER OF MY CHILDREN.”

Sometimes romance isn’t just grand features and poetic quotes. Sometimes it’s the humorous and everyday aspects in a romance that make up a love story. This quote comes from an episode when Pam is at art school and accidentally leaves Jim a long voicemail while she’s drunk. This causes Jim to lovingly point out that she’s the future mother of his children. One of the great things about Jim and Pam’s relationship is how they are always joking around together.

2 “GOT IT A WEEK AFTER WE STARTED DATING.”

Seeing Jim and Pam finally get engaged was an exciting moment for many fans. When Jim reveals the ring he has picked out to the cameras, he says that he has been planning the engagement for a while now. These two have such a romantic story, and they both seemed to know when they started dating that they had finally gotten it right.

1 “I WAS JUST…I’M IN LOVE WITH YOU.”

This quote is really romantic but also a little bittersweet. Jim says this line to Pam at the Casino Night at the end of season two. While Pam isn’t ready to admit her feelings as well, seeing Jim risk their friendship and his happiness to tell her how he felt was definitely romantic. Luckily, these two get a happy ending even if it takes them a bit of time to get there.
