In 2013, the world of cinema gave us plenty of reasons to smile, cry, be anxious and live one with the characters. Here are some of the best quotes from 2013 movies:
1. Andrew Fassbach from World War Z
Mother Nature is a serial killer. She wants to get caught, she leaves bread crumbs, she leaves clues… Mother Nature knows how to disguise her weakness as strength.
2. The Kents from Man of Steel
Jonathan Kent: You’re the answer, son. You’re the answer to “are we alone in the universe”. Clark Kent at 13: Can’t I just… keep pretending I’m your son? Jonathan Kent: You ARE my son. And I have to believe that you were sent here for a reason. And even if it takes the rest of your life, you owe it to yourself to find out what that reason is.
3. Christopher Pike from Star Trek into Darkness
Do you know what a pain you are? You think the rules don’t apply to you. There’s greatness in you, but there’s not an ounce of humility. You think that you can’t make mistakes, but there’s going to come a moment when you realize you’re wrong about that, and you’re going to get yourself and everyone under your command killed.
4. Jack and Sally from Oblivion
Jack Harper: How can man die better: than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his Gods.
Sally: I created you, Jack. I am your god.
Jack Harper: F**k you, Sally.
5. Matt Kowalski from Gravity
I get it, it’s nice up here. You could just shut down all the systems, turn down all the lights, just close your eyes and tune out everyone. There’s nobody up here that can hurt you. It’s safe. What’s the point of going on? What’s the point of living? Your kid died, it doesn’t get any rougher than that. It’s still a matter of what you do now. If you decide to go then you just gotta get on with it. Sit back, enjoy the ride, you gotta plant both your feet on the ground and start living life. Hey, Ryan, it’s time to go home.
6. Nick Carraway from The Great Gatsby
Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter – tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther… And one fine morning – So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
7. Roman from Fast and Furious 6
Father, thank you for the gathering of friends, Father we give thanks for all the choices we’ve made because that’s what makes us who we are, let us forever cherish the loved ones we’ve lost along the way; thank you for the little angel, the newest addition to our family, thank you for bringing Letty home, and most of all thank you for fast cars!
8. Stacker Pentecost and Raleigh Becket from Pacific Rim
Stacker Pentecost: One, don’t you ever touch me again. Two, don’t you ever touch me again. Now, you have no idea who the hell I am, or where I have come from. And I’m not about to tell you my whole life story. All I need to be to you and everybody in this dome is a fixed point. The last man standing. I do not need your sympathy or your admiration. All I need is your compliance and your fighting skills. And if I can’t get that, then you can go back to the wall that I found you crawling on. Do I make myself clear?
[turns his head away and gestures to his ear. Beckett grimaces, leans closer, and speaks]
Raleigh Becket: Yes, sir!
9. Matilda and Max from Elysium
Matilda: There once was a meerkat who lived in the jungle. He was hungry, but he was small. So small. And the other big animals had all the food, because they could reach the fruits. So he made friends with a hippopotamus to…
Max: [interrupting her] Okay, stop. It doesn’t end well for the meerkat.
Matilda: Yes it does, because he can stand on the hippopotamus’s back to get all the fruits he wants.
Max: What’s in it for the hippo?
Matilda: [precociously] The hippo wants a friend.
10. Katniss, Peeta and Haymitch from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Katniss Everdeen: Haymitch, please. Please, just help me get through this trip.
Haymitch Abernathy: This trip doesn’t end when you get back home.
Peeta Mellark: So what do we do?
Haymitch Abernathy: From now on, your job is to be a distraction so people forget what the real problems are.
