Breakfast at Tiffany's

I lost my diploma, Its a good thing it only cost me about 30+ thousand, of which I am still paying for. I know mentioned that in my Monday GBU. I spent ALL DAY Monday looking for it. Literally it was 10 pm when I found it. My brain was literally fried. So I snuggled up on the couch with Westley and Tiger and watched Breakfast at Tiffany's.

How in the world have I gone all my life and never watched this movie?

If I had know that Audrey Hepburn's name in the movie was Holly, or that her Cat looked like my Tiger I probably would have watched it sooner. After all we owe a lot to this movie. Without it we may not have the little black dress. Who doesn't own a little black dress, or recognize that Tiffany's blue from a mile away? 

 For those of you who still haven't watched the movie. Go see it! Seriously its on Netflix. Here are some of my favorite quotes. Curtsey of IMDB

Holly Golightly: You could always tell what kind of a person a man thinks you are by the earrings he gives you. I must say, the mind reels.

 Holly Golightly: Promise me one thing: don't take me home until I'm drunk - very drunk indeed.

 Paul Varjak: [about Holly and Jose] So you're getting married, then?
Holly Golightly: Well, he hasn't really asked me, not in so many words.
Paul Varjak: Four you mean?
Holly Golightly: Huh?
Paul Varjak: Well that's how many it takes: will you marry me?

 Paul Varjak: Holly, I'm in love with you.
Holly Golightly: So what?
Paul Varjak: So what? So plenty! I love you. You belong to me.

 Paul Varjak: You know what's wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You're chicken, you've got no guts. You're afraid to stick out your chin and say, "Okay, life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness." You call yourself a free spirit, a "wild thing," and you're terrified somebody's gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.
[takes out the ring and throws it in Holly's lap] Here. I've been carrying this thing around for months. I don't want it anymore.

Such a good movie. It is right up there with Armageddon, Sweet Home Alabama, Princess Bride,  Mortal Kombat, and the Crow as my fave movies.

  1. Have to be honest, Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of those one I still haven't gotten around to watching. Need to add it to my Netflix cue!

    The Crow is one of your favorite movies? That's a great one!

    1. yeah the crow really is one of my faves. I remember the first time I ever saw it. I love the love story behind it. That death can't stop his love for her. The tagline Real love is forever says it all.
