Life Lessons from Movies

Say Anything…

In Comedy, Movies on December 20, 2013 at 1:35 PM

Say Anything (1989) is a comedy written and directed by Cameron Crowe about the summer romance between two recent high school graduates, Lloyd Dobler (John Cusack), who has no future plans, and Diane Court (Ione Skye), the valedictorian who wins a scholarship to study in England.

Life Lesson:

Go after what you want.

Movie Scene:

Lloyd Dobler: “I’m gonna take out Diane Court again.”

Corey Flood (Lili Taylor): “That’s unlikely.”

Lloyd: “Is the movies a good second date, you know, as– as a date?”

Corey: “But you never had a first date.”

Lloyd: “Yes, I did. I sat across from her at a mall. We ate together. We ate. That’s eating. Sharing an important physical event. […] I’m gonna call her.”

Corey: “Diane Court doesn’t go out with guys like you. She’s a brain. Diane Court does not realize how good looking she is.”

Lloyd: “This sounds great to me. I’m gonna call her. That’s what’s cool about her.”

Corey: “Brains stay with brains. The bomb could go off, and their mutant genes would form the same cliques. I’m sorry. It’s just you’re a really nice guy, and we don’t want to see you get hurt.”

Lloyd: “I want to get hurt!”
