Special holidays call for an occasion to reflect on good times and happy memories. Many of us pop in our favorite film, sitting in the living room with our loved ones. What better way to enjoy the season than to laugh, feel sentimental, and even shed a tear? One recent Disney-Pixar film defines just that.
How much do I love Toy Story? Like many who grew up with the 1995 masterpiece that introduced us all to Pixar, I appreciated every little ounce of it. Its ridiculous amount of terrific quotes symbolizes one of those reasons. Many of us entertainment buffs gravitate to movie quotes because they are poignant, funny, universal, or sometimes all three. The Toy Story films possess a mix of these qualities and offer too many great quotes that can fit in one edition. Therefore, I am dividing up the 25 best quotes per film over several editions of Disney In Depth in the next few months.
Let’s metaphorically travel back to 1995 and recall the excitement upon hearing – and eventually quoting – these 25 brilliant lines from Toy Story for the first time.
As we celebrate America’s birthday today, let’s harken back to a film that remains the classic Summer July 4th picture, the legendary thriller Jaws. Since the summer of 1975, the film has remained a pop culture phenomenon to moviegoers the world over. Like two films in one — the first one on land when the inhabitants of Amity Island are forced to deal with a predator that’s slowly devouring its citizens one by one, to the three men (Chief Brody, Matt Hooper, and salty sea veteran Quint) going out to sea to try and catch the shark singlehandedly — Jaws is an absolute memorable classic of the history of the cinema.
So now, in the film’s chronological order, are 50 of the greatest quotes — highly memorable ones and some obscure ones, but all are benchmarks of the films dialogue and narrative. Some are purposely left out so you can add your favorites below. And “You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat” I’ll put right here, it’s one of the most oft-repeated lines of the film, and was ad-libbed by Roy Scheider. Also the centerpiece of the movie, the Indianapolis Speech, is not here either, as that’s an incredible monologue, and almost impossible to pull a quote from. This list could have been 100 quotes probably, but for that, “I’m gonna need a bigger column.”
In honor of the 30th anniversary of the premiere of the original ‘Star Wars’ — back when the biggest explosion came from the last TIE fighter and Han actually shot first — we present to you 30 of the film’s most memorable quotations “¦ and no questions asked.
