Spring/summer movie season is in full swing. What's your all-time favorite movie quote?
Alicia Rorabaugh, Senior, Johansen High School
From the film "Notting Hill": "After all
I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her." Anna Scott (Julia Roberts)
Martin Cepeda, Eighth Grade, Sacred Heart School Turlock
My favorite movie quote would be "Bond. James Bond." Need I say more?
Julie Fogarty, Sophomore, Central Catholic High School
My favorite movie quotes of all time are: "When I close my eyes, I see you for what you truly are which is UGGLAY!" from "She's the Man," and the exchange "Inconceivable!"
"I don't think it means what you think it means," from "The Princess Bride." Those are great movies!

"You died on a Saturday morning. And I had you placed here under our tree. And I had that house of your father's bulldozed to the ground. Momma always said dyin' was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn't." Forrest Gump
Patrick Germann, Senior, Central Valley High School
"The Force is strong with you, young Skywalker. But you are not a Jedi yet." Darth Vader, "The Empire Strikes Back." I always liked the way this line was delivered.
Dominique Germann, Junior, Central Valley High School
I love movie quotes, so: "Regal, majestic, lovable, yes, yes, a cuddly face, that's me to a 'T' "(Disney's "Robin Hood") and, "I've got my own business to tend to, so y'all mind your own!" ("The Help").

Though I consider all lines from the Muppet movies to be pure gold, there is one that will always stay close to my heart. My brother used to always quote Gonzo's "Muppet Treasure Island" line, "I'm not Jimmy-Jim-Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim, he's Jimmy-Jim-Jimmy-Jim-Jim-Jim-Jim." Repetitive exposure has caused the line to become pretty much my all-time favorite. Muppet lines never get old, they just get funnier.
Emily Hoeksema, Junior, Ripon Christian High School
There are so many epic movie quotes to choose from! There's the classic "It's a gift
and a curse," from "Monk," or there's, ahem, Captain Jack Sparrow pointing out to Will, "If you were waiting for the opportune moment, that was it." Another favorite Jack quote is this: "She's safe, just like I promised. She's all set to marry Norrington, just like she promised. And you get to die for her, just like you promised. So we're all men of our word, really
except for, of course, Elizabeth, who is in fact, a woman." These are just a few of my favorite quotes, but there are so many more!

Even though my siblings and I never fail to pull out a Muppets quote, my favorite quote actually comes from "Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin." When Christopher Robin is telling Pooh that they won't always be together, he tells Pooh to always remember, "You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." I was obsessed with Pooh when I was younger, and this quote helped me to always believe in myself. I'm still a Pooh fan, even to this day.
