A Cinderella Story

2004 American, teen, romantic comedy film featuring Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray, directed by Mark Rosman. Routinely exploited by her wicked stepmother, the downtrodden Sam Montgomery is excited about the prospect of meeting her Internet beau at the school's Halloween dance.

Favorite Lines:

Shelby: What can I get here that has no sugar, no carbs, and is fat free?

Sam: Water.


Austin: Do you believe in love at first sight?

Sam: I'll let you know.


Austin: Sam! Okay, I know you think that I'm just some...

Sam: Coward? Phony?

Austin: Okay, just listen.

Sam: No, you listen. You turned out to be exactly who I thought you were. I never pretended to be somebody else. It's been me all along. And it was me who was hurt in front of everybody. Look, I didn't come here to yell at you, okay? I came to tell you that I know what it feels like to be afraid to show who you are. I was, but I'm not anymore. And the thing is, I really don't care what people think about me... because I believe in myself. And I know that things are gonna be okay. But even though I have no family, and no job, and no money for college... it's you that I feel sorry for.


Austin: I can be surrounded by a sea of people and still feel all alone... Then I think of you.

Take the Lead

2006 movie starring Antonio Banderas, Rob Brown, Alfre Woodard, Dante Basco, Marcus T. Paulk, Jenna Dewan, Lauren Collins and also features former America's Next Top Model contestant, Yaya DaCosta. The movie is based on the life of Pierre Dulaine, a well-known ballroom dancer and a dance instructor, known for 'Dancing Classrooms'.

Favorite Lines:

Pierre Dulaine: You can get what you want.

Rock: No, some people get what they want.

Pierre Dulaine: Those are the people who show up to get it.


Pierre Dulaine: Sometimes the best way to conquer an enemy is to get right up in his face.

LaRhette: I'd rather be dead than up in his face.

Rock: You know what? I feel the same way.


Kurd: We don't need any more white bread tourists seeing how the other half lives. We don't.

Caitlin: White bread? Excuse me, do you own a mirror? 


Pierre Dulaine: I want to teach your kids to dance.

Principal Augustine James: If theres' one thing they can do, it's dance.

Pierre Dulaine: Ballroom dance? Waltz, the foxtrot?

Principal Augustine James: Ok, where's the camera? Because if you're saying that you want to teach my kids the foxtrot I have to be on TV.


To do something, anything, is hard. It's much easier to blame your father, your mother, the environment, the government, the lack of money, but even if you find a place to assign the blame, it doesn't make the problems go away.
--Pierre Dulaine

Favorite Lines:

Do you know what Love is? Love will clip your wings. You won't be able to fly. It will make your life hell.

Creep? I wish there was such a creep in my life. I'd get such lovely flowers.

But tonight, ladies and gentlemen is not about me. It's about the real heroes behind the action. And it's my real privilege to give this award to someone ...who is my real life hero. To the man who takes the fall as the director yells action.
--Sylvester Stallone

Are you guys out of your minds to renounce such happiness? And for a stuck up little witch like me?

Don't you always say that all stuntmen are dumb? It's true. Absolutely true.

If you try any funny stuff I will unleash the power of the internet on you. I will register you as a sex offender in all 50 states, and Canada.

Sweetheart, respecting your mother is not about reliving her life. One big reason I fell in love with her was that she always stood up for her friends in need, no matter how hard it was. And on that, you are exactly like her.
--John White

Favorite Lines:

Echh. No. Sorry, Mom. I have a strict no-ruffles policy.

Well, you know maybe if I had know you were a girl, we wouldn't have talked like we did, and got to know each other the same way. And that would've been a shame.

Favorite Lines:

I like myself the way I am!

Y'know you inspired me, doing what you did, going off on your own like that.

So what are you hiding from the law or is it just a bad nose job?

10 Things I Hate About You

Favorite Lines:

Has the fact that you're completely psycho managed to escape your attention?

You are amazingly self-assured, has anyone ever told you that?

Someone paid me to take out this really great girl. Yeah, but I screwed up. I, um, I fell for her.

Favorite Lines:

Love has given me wings so I must fly.

They can take it away from you, they can and they will. Oh, they will. But love they cannot take.

God love you, William. So do I.

Your men love you. If I knew nothing else about you, that would be enough.
--Prince Edward

Hope guides me. It is what gets me through the day and especially the night. The hope that after you're gone from my sight it will not be the last time I look upon you.

3 Idiots

2009 Indian comedy-drama film directed by Rajkumar Hirani. Two friends embark on a quest for a lost buddy. On this journey, they encounter a long forgotten bet, a wedding they must crash, and a funeral that goes impossibly out of control.

If Michael Jackson's dad forced him to be a boxer... and Mohammad Ali's dad pushed him to be a singer... imagine the disaster.

Today my respect for that idiot shot up. Most of us went to college just for a degree. No degree meant no plum job, no pretty wife, no credit card, no social status. But none of this mattered to him, he was in college for the joy of learning, he never cared if he was first or last.

I was a good student since childhood. Parents hoped I'd end their poverty. That scared me... My fear grew. Fear is not good for grades, sir.

You're right, Dad. It wasn't suicide... It was murder.
