Wedding movies I love.

…and my favorite lines from them, as always.

Father of the Bride (1991)

George: Drive carefully. And don’t forget to fasten your condom.
Annie: Dad!
George: [shrieks in embarrassment] Seat belt! I meant, I meant seat belt.

(I love their house; if it had a wrap-around porch, it would probably be my dream home.)

Matty Banks: Can I put Cameron back on the list if he promises not to eat?

George: You know, that’s not a bad idea. Who else can we ask not to eat? My parents and your mother.

Annie: Why don’t we just charge people? That way we can make money on the wedding?

The Wedding Singer (1998)
Sammy: Somebody left a jacket in the back.
Robbie: That’s Julia’s jacket! She took off on Notson Street, remember? She said it wasn’t jacket weather anymore.
Sammy: Uh-oh… You like her!
Robbie: No, I don’t.
Sammy: Of course you do! She’s a cool chick with a hot ass.
Robbie: How about this? You talk about her ass again, I’ll break your neck.

Julia: Not porno tongue. Church tongue.
Robbie: [laughing] Church tongue, I like that.

Robbie: Hey, psycho – we’re not gonna discuss this, OK, it’s over. Please get out of my Van Halen t-shirt before you jinx the band and they break up.

The Wedding Planner (2001)


Mary: Y’know, “those who can’t do, teach”? Well those who can’t wed, plan.

Mary: I can treat that jackass like any other faceless groom! And that’s just what I’m gonna do! Why? Because he’s nothing… because I love a challenge! And because I am a goddamn professional!
My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
Toula Portokalos: I had to go to Greek school, where I learned valuable lessons such as, “If Nick has one goat and Maria has nine, how soon will they marry?”


Toula Portokalos: Ma, Dad is so stubborn. What he says goes. “Ah, the man is the head of the house!”
Maria Portokalos: Let me tell you something, Toula. The man is the head, but the woman is the neck. And she can turn the head any way she wants.

Toula Portokalos: Nice Greek girls are supposed to do three things in life: marry Greek boys, make Greek babies, and feed everyone… until the day we die.

Wedding Crashers (2005)
John Beckwith: [about Chazz] He lived with his mom till he was forty! She tried to poison his oatmeal!
Jeremy Grey: Erroneous! Erroneous! Erroneous on both counts!

Jeremy Grey: Have you even shot one of these things before?
John Beckwith: The whole 17 years we’ve known each other I’ve been sneaking off to go on little hunting trips around the world. No, I don’t even know what the fuck a quail is!
Jeremy Grey: I feel totally ridiculous. Like why do I have to be in camouflage? So the big bad quail doesn’t see me?
John Beckwith: I know. Why can’t we hunt something cool like a hawk or an eagle, something with some talons?
Jeremy Grey: That’d be awesome. We could get something like big game. Even like a gorilla or a rhinoceros or a fucking human being! That’ll get you jacked up.

Jeremy Grey: I’m not perfect, but who are we kidding–neither are you.

Chazz Reinhold: Oh, come in, sit down, I was-hey, you want something to eat?
Chazz Reinhold: HEY MOM! CAN WE GET SOME MEATLOAF?

    GAH, Father of the Bride (and its sequel) is a favorite in my family. i’ve seen it a million times and never get tired of it. it’s also one of those rare phenomena’s where a movie’s sequel is actually just as good as the original.
