You Can Quote MEme

Okay, that's enough of the sappy from me.

Back to typical Shell.

Supahmommy and MommyBrain's All About MEme subject for the week is: What is your favorite quote and why?

Well, because every quote I can think of- with the exception of As Good As It Gets' "Sell crazy someplace else, we're all stocked up here." which is our family motto- are sappy, I'm going with something slightly different.

Once upon a time, at the end of my college days, I was addicted to a little show called Dawson's Creek. The whole will-they-or-won't-they and then Pacey-or-Dawson thing had me riveted. I thought I could have been Joey Potter in another life.

Every Wednesday, from 8-9pm, no one was to bother me. Ah, the days before dvr.

A boyfriend once called me at 8:55 on a Wednesday night: right at the end of the show- critical defining moment/cliffhanger time. I answered the phone by screeching, "What the hell are you thinking? It's not 9pm yet!" And then I hung up on him.

In case you're wondering, he later apologized profusely for that. And then I dumped him shortly after that for being spineless. *Shrugs*

But, back to my love affair with the show. I would watch with anticipation and end up sobbing my way through many shows.

Even if you never saw an episode how dare you, you can still appreciate some of my favorite quotes from the show. Remarkably deep, coming from teenagers. 


Dawson: But what good is their love if it's not strong enough to overcome those circumstances?
Joey: Because in spite of the circumstances... they never stop loving.


Jen: Don't give up on your lost causes, you never know when your luck will change.


Jack: I don't believe in perfect love. But I do believe that there are people whose lives are inextricably intertwined.

Mr. Brooks: Do you know why so many great pictures are about love triangles? Simple. For every piece of happiness, there's also a piece of unhappiness. If you haven't told both sides, you haven't told the whole story.


Pacey: I don’t regret anything because it’s life’s little twists and turns and bumps and bruises that make you who you are. Why would I regret that?

Do you have a favorite quote? Click the button to link up or to read more quotes.

Btw, wanna see how Dawson's Creek had far reaches? Check out this quote from the show from May of 2001: Dawson: It's become obvious to me that in life, you're either a Mac person or you're a PC person. The choice defines you.

I LOVED Dawson's Creek. It was part of our "routine" in college. We'd watch that and 90210 together in our dorm room. LOL

Great quotes.

Aww I loved that show...I also loved 90210...ok, basically, I loved every soapy teenage drama on TV during the 90s. Great quotes, I think the last one is my favorite.

Oh I am sorry I never got into that show. I knew about it. I am so like that with Grey's and some other shows. I do love my t..v. I hope you have a great week. On Friday I am hosting my Family Fridays. It is a time to share a story about someone in your family if you want to stop by..

Okay, I love that Jack quote too. Also, I get totally irritated with Andy if he is away from the house, and either calls or shows up in the middle of a show I watch. I don't watch many, so when I do, I want peace and freakin' quiet.

I LOVED Dawson's Creek. In fact, I used to watch it with a "guy friend" on the phone. That's right. We'd have a phone date to watch DC. I was obsessed.

Blogger Sassy Salsa girl said...

I used to be a PC person. But ever since my husband got a Mac I have changed sides, I think its a better definition.

I never really got into Dawson's Creek, but I think its mostly because we could never get it in clearly on my old TV back home. Thank goodness for cable....

But speaking of quotes, I actually spent sometime online trying to find this one certain quote, and I found it! Its now the marquee on my screensaver at work.

Oh you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support group for that, its called EVERYBODY and they meet at the bar. -Drew Carey

Oooh, I really like Jack's quote. Nice vocab. ;)

ok well i never saw that show - i was too old for it to appeal to me. i think. i am the 90210 generation. and am profoundly embarrassed about THAT.

thanks for sharing the quotes

Blogger Foursons said...

Hate to burst your bubble but those quotes aren't by teenagers, but by the script writers who are adults. Unless of course these were said outside of the show.

I never did get into the DC thing. My guilty pleasure was One Tree Hill. There are some classic lines in that show, too!

Ah yes, wisdom from The Creek! :-D But the line from "As Good As It Gets" definitely works for so many people! ;-)

Oh how I LOVE Dawson's Creek! I am a big fan of Pacey :) I watch Fringe just to stare at him and hear his voice! This show - as evident from your quotes - was ahead of its time and a classic!

I *gasp* never watched Dawsons Creek. Not once. Zilch. Never watched 90210 or Friends either (well, I have watched Friends reruns - just never watched them when they came out!)

Some very powerful quotes though! I am guessing teenagers didn't actually come up with them... oops... hope I didn't ruin it for you... LOL

well I am PC in transition to a Mac...scary world to move from one to the other. My fav quote at the moment is a bit more brief -- I can only please one person per day, today is not your day and tomorrow does not look good either.

dearest shell. i thought you were really drop a bomb when you started with "in college i was addicted to:"-- wait-- i guess you did.

i also love that you can't just have ONE favorite quote from dawson's creek.

my quote is regarding the just dance competition.

“My body is like breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don't think about it, I just have it.” Arnold Schwartzenegger

oops! wrong one!

here, i found it:

“If it bleeds, we can kill it.”

that's right, bring it bitchez.

Oh, Dawson.

I didn't start watching that show until it was well into reruns on TBS. One day, I accidentally saw the very first episode. When I realized what they were doing, I set my alarm for 8:55am every day so I could watch that show before class.

One of my family's favorite quotes is from Bull Durham: The world is made for people who are not cursed with self awareness.

We say that whenever we run into someone stupid.
