My Movie Go To’s

I have a confession to make. I like movies but I don’t love them. I do like the times when I can sit down and watch something that sparks my interest but I don’t need to watch the new releases and I don’t allow a lot of my personal time to be taken up sitting in front of the screen. I prefer being outside and spending my time with people. I love to talk and laugh and bond . . .which is why quarantine has been a killer for me. Thank heavens my county has finally moved into a soft opening up. I can’t take my four walls anymore!

But . . .during this time of isolation, I did turn to some movies to help me laugh or smile. Below are 5 of my go-to movies.

And the Award Goes To . . .


Happy Independence Day to all my USA Friends!!


I just thought that I would get that out early so I don’t forget. 🙂

Now on to the post . . .


Do you know those weeks where you aren’t quite sure how you got to Friday but you are positive that time still traveled in the exact same manner as all subsequent weeks? I know we had a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, etc. but for some reason all the exact days seem to be a slight blur.


I am sure it had to do with the fact that I have been sick all week, that my sister and her fiancé came into town unexpectedly, and that I had a lot more action in the job department this week.


So now that we are to Friday I can say that; my cold is getting better (thank heavens), my sister will now be getting married in Wisconsin (fabulous), and I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed with employment opportunities (Seattle anyone?).


So I now have to share a little bit about my family and also what happens when I am sick and cannot get any sleep. Does your family ever speak in movie lines? Mine does and they start to get more ridiculous as the conversation goes on especially late at night and when I am sick and lacking sleep, EVERYTHING gets really funny.


So in honor of my family’s craziness late at night, I have decided to share with you 5 of our favorite movie lines. They are not in order of favorites nor is this list ANYWHERE near complete. We will just have to visit this post again, and again, and again . . .


What are some of your favorite movie lines? Please share them with us! 🙂


  1. Movie: One Fine Day (1996)

Line: “Rosa, if you speak English say okay.”

“Okay. Gracias. Bye-bye.”

  1. Movie: Good Morning Vietnam (1987)

Line: “Excuse me sir. Seeing how the VP is such a VIP shouldn’t we keep the PC on the QT cause if it leaks to the VC we could all end up MIA and then we would all be put on KP.”

  1. Movie: The Three Amigos (1986)

Line: “Would you say I have a plethora of pinatas?”

“A what?”

“A plethora.”

“Oh yes, you have a plethora.”

“Jefe, what is a plethora?” (and it goes on) 🙂

  1. Movie: Tommy Boy (1995)
