Movie Name: Shanghai Kiss (2007)
Joe Silverman: Listen to yourself, man! Youre moving to Shanghai for
a girl! A *Chinese* girl for Godsakes!
Liam Liu: This is not just about the girl.
Joe Silverman: Then what is it?
Liam Liu: It just -- it *feels* right! Im Chinese. I gotta go back
to my roots.
Joe Silverman: [scoffs] All right, slow down, Kunta Kinte. You dont
even speak Chinese. What the hell are you gonna do? What, drive a

Movie Name: Charmed (1998)
Phoebe Halliwell: So much has happened over the last 8 years. So much
has been gained and lost. Still, in some ways I feel like my life
is really just beginning... and it was. For though I had loved
before, Id never really known love until I met Coop. A man who I
shared the special little girl I had long ago forseen, but feared I
might never have. Along with two other special little girls I had
not forseen. I was suddenly so blessed to have a new family of my
own, and old friends to share it with. And though I kept working
and giving advice to those who asked, I was more interested in
helping them find love. Since finally, having been loved.
Paige Matthews: Phoebe, had become somewhat of an expert on the
subject. As for me, life without demons opened up similar avenues.
Henry of course continued to look after his parolees, even if they
didnt want to be looked after. While still making time to help me
with little Henry and the twins. Which allowed me time to finally
embrace my inner whitelighter. And to help the next generation of
witches come into their own.
Piper Halliwell: So that Paige could pass on all the she learned. Not
just to her own children, or to mine, or to Phoebes, but to other
future witches and white lighters as well. Which filled the time
between when we were doing the fighting and when our kids were old
enough to take over. Allowing me time to get back to my roots and
cook something other then potions for once. And open the restaurant
Id always dreamed of owning. As for Leo, after we reclaimed magic
school he went back to teaching. Which he continued to do, until it
was time to retire. Older Piper
[finishes reading the Book of Shadows to her granddaughter]
Elderly Piper: And although we certainly had our struggles and heart
aches over the years were a family of survivors and we will always
be. Which is why weve truly been Charmed.
Granddaughter: Again, Grandmama, again.
Elderly Piper: Oh, dear. No, I cant. I need to rest. But you can
look at it for a little while if youd like. After all, itll be
yours one day.
[as older Piper and Leo walk up the stairs, the camera zooms in
pictures spanning four generations of the Halliwell family,
including a picture of Victor and Patty]
Elderly Piper: .
Movie Name: Boo Boo Runs Wild (1999)
Yogi Bear: Boo-Boo?
Boo-Boo Bear: [after slowly snapping from hearing Ranger Smiths
latest regulations] I cant take it anymore, Yogi! "Dont do this!
Dont do that!" Anytime we want to do something fun, or natural,
indecent... theres a new rule. And Im plenty TIRED OF IT!"
Yogi Bear: Easy, Boob.
Boo-Boo Bear: NO EASY! NO EASY! Im a bear, Yogi... not a man. I was
born a bear, and Im going back to my bear roots! Ill no longer
dress in the mans attire! And Ill no longer speak in the mans
tongue! From now on, its going on all fours and grunting for me!
Movie Name: The Daily Show (1996)
Contributor, Back in Black: Growing up, my baseball heroes were
Wade Boggs, Babe Ruth, and even Joe DiMaggio. They were drunks!
They had to overcome their substance! So why cant baseball go back
to its roots? Forget the performance-enhancing drugs and bring back
the performance-hindering ones! At the very least, do it for the
Movie Name: JCVD (2008)
J.C.V.D.: This movie is for me. There we are, you and me. Why did you
do that? Or why did I do that? You made my dream come true. I asked
for it. I promised you something in return and I havent delivered
yet. You win, I lose. Unless... the path youve set for me is full
of hurdles where the answer comes before the question. Yeah I do
that. Now I know why. Its the cure, from what Ive seen here. It
all makes sense. It makes sense to those who understand. So...
America, poverty, stealing to eat... stalking producers, actors,
movie stars, going to clubs hoping to see a star, with my
pictures, karate magazines. Its all I had. I didnt speak English.
But I did 20 years of karate. Cause before I wasnt like that
[points to flexed bicep] . This... this is me today. I used to be
small and scrawny. And I took up karate. Hence the Dojo, hence
respect, thou shall believe people who say, "Oss!" Its Samurai
code. Its honour, no lies. So this guy in the US, its not the
same thing. No one says "Oss" to you. Sometimes people in show
business say, "Were gonna fuck em". I believed in people, in the
Dojo. I was blessed and had a lot of wives. I always believed in
love. Its hard for a woman with three kids to say, "Which one do I
love more?" A mother... If you have 5, 6, 7, or 10 wives in a
lifetime, theyve all got something special, but no one cares about
that in the so-called media. What about drugs? When you got it all,
you travel the world. When youve been in all the hotels, youre
the prima donna of the penthouse. And in all hotels the world over,
travelling, you want something more. And because of a woman...
well, because of love, I tried something and I got hooked.
Van-Damme, the beast, the tiger in a cage, the "Bloodsport" man got
hooked. I was wasted mentally and physically. To the point that I
got out of it. I got out of it. But... its all there. Its all
there. It was really tough. I saw people worse off than me. I went
from poor to rich and thought, why arent we all like me, why all
the privileges? Im just a regular guy. It makes me sick to see
people... who dont have what Ive got. Knowing that they have
qualities, too. Much more than I do! Its not my fault if I was cut
out to be a star. I asked for it. I asked for it, really believed
in it. When youre 13, you believe in your dream. Well it came true
for me. But I still ask myself today what Ive done on this Earth.
Nothing! Ive done nothing! And I might just die in this post
office, hoping to start all over here in Belgium, in my country,
where my roots are. Start all over with my parents and get my
health back, pick up again. So I really hope... nobodys gonna
pull a trigger in this post office... Its so stupid to kill
people. Theyre so beautiful! So, today, I pray to God. I truly
believe its not a movie. Its real life. Real life. Ive seen so
many things. I was born in Belgium, but Im a citizen of the world.
Ive travelled a lot. Its hard for me to judge people and its
hard for them... not to judge me. Easier to blame me. Yeah,
something like that.
Movie Name: The Cider House Rules (1999)
[We see Homer writing to Dr. Larch and hear the words in his voice as
we are shown variously relevant scenes]
Homer: Dear Dr. Larch. Thank you for your doctors bag, although it
seems that I will not have the occasion to use it, barring some
emergency, of course. I am not a doctor. With all due respect to
your profession, Im enjoying my life here. Im enjoying being a
lobsterman and orchardman. In fact, Ive never enjoyed myself as
much. The truth is, I want to stay here. I believe Im being of
[We hear the words Dr. Larch writes back to Homer in response]
Dr. Wilbur Larch: My Dear Homer: I thought you were over you
adolescence - the first time in our lives when we imagine we have
something terrible to hide from those who love us. Do you think
its not obvious to us whats happened to you? Youve fallen in
love, havent you? By the way, whatever youre up to cant be too
good for your heart. Then again, its the sort of condition that
could be made worse by worrying about it, so dont worry about it.
[the back and forth correspondence continues interwoven with scenes
from Homers life at the time]
Homer: Dear Dr. Larch, What Im learning her may not be as important
as what I learned from you, but everything is new to me. Yesterday,
I learned how to poison mice. Field mice girdle an apple tree; pine
mice kill the roots. You use poison oats and poison corn. I know
what you have to do. You have to play God. Well, killing mice is as
close as I want to come to playing God.
Dr. Wilbur Larch: Homer, here in St. Clouds, I have been given the
opportunity of playing God or leaving practically everything up to
chance. Men and women of conscience should sieze those moments when
its possible to play God. There wont be many. Do I interfere when
absolutely helpless women tell me they simply cant have an
abortion - that they simply must go through with having another and
yet another orphan? I do not. I do not even recommend. I just give
them what they want. You are my work of art, Homer. Everything else
has been just a job. I dont know if you have a work of art in you,
but I know what your job is: youre a doctor.
Homer: Im not a doctor.
Dr. Wilbur Larch: Youre going to replace me, Homer. The board of
trustees is looking for my replacement.
Homer: I cant replace you. Im sorry.
Dr. Wilbur Larch: "Sorry"? Im not sorry. Not for anything Ive done.
Im not even sorry that I love you.
[Cut to scene of Dr. Larch sitting on a hospital bed reading Homers
letter. He is crest-fallen and one of his nurses sits down to
Dr. Wilbur Larch: [Speaking to the nurse] I think we may have lost
him to the world.
Movie Name: Down in the Delta (1998)
Will Sinclair: I dont know how shes going to recognize me. She
thinks somebody else is her own dead mother.
Earl Sinclair: Oh, yeah? Maybe somethin come back if she more of ya.
Will Sinclair: Dad, how many times we got to talk about this? Im not
moving back to Mississippi.
Earl Sinclair: But your roots are here.
Will Sinclair: You taught me that my roots are here.
Will Sinclair: [pause, looks at the checkerboard] Whose move is it?
You always do this. Why do you always start talking and then you...
Earl Sinclair: Your move. [chuckles] Your move!
Movie Name: Carolina (2003)
Grandma Mirabeau: [Saying grace at a Thanksgivings Day dinner] Lord,
bless my family. Fill their bellies and keep them warm and safe.
And, now, Lord, lets get personal. Please find Georgia a man to
daddy that young un shes carrying. Give Maine those lottery
numbers before she loses her virginity on that rocking horse. Lord,
let my Teddy settle down and plant some roots. Look over my sister,
Marilyn, who, bless her ignorant soul, is back in jail again.
Enlighten her about cellular telephones and credit card
transactions both of which are traceable. And, finally, Lord, bless
my Carolinas heart for she is the best part of me. Amen.
Movie Name: Tomb Raider: Chronicles (2000)
Hanging Corpse: Come, child, come closer. For I have gifts for thee.
Lara Croft: Ill stay where I am.
Hanging Corpse: [laughs sinisterly] Fear not this visage. It is but a
vessel for my troubled spirit. [hisses] Come closer, for you are
safe, while I am hung like so much butchered meat.
Lara Croft: Who... are you?
Hanging Corpse: WHO? Hmm... for it is more like WHAT. Condemned to
wander between the kingdoms of man and that of the elementals.
[hisses] But I must be swift in my request, [hisses] for they watch
and wait, to once more draw me back into the darkness!
Lara Croft: Request?
Hanging Corpse: My heart, girl! They have hidden my petrified heart!
In the roots of this, the World Tree, down under the watchful gaze
of the dragon Níðhöggr. [hisses] Find this, my child and return it
to its rightful resting place [hisses] and you shall be rewarded!
Lara Croft: And why on Earth should I trust... you?
Hanging Corpse: Not ON Earth, girl, in between. [laughs] My soul is
gone, and how it fares, nobody knows, and nobody cares! [laughs
once more, and then disappears in a flash of lightning]
Movie Name: A Walk in the Clouds (1995)
Alberto Aragon: My daughter can trace her roots back 400 years to the
best families in Mexico.
Movie Name: Pyrates (1991)
Ari: When I was in like, 5th grade, the miniseries "Roots" was this
big thing. So, our teacher had us make family trees. I consulted my
mom, and my grandmother, but we couldnt trace it back any further
than New York, which was embarrassing. So, I lied and said that we
were descended from Russian Tsars. Which is possible if any of them
married poorly. Now Liam on the other hand, if theres a good Monty
Python rerun on, or if hes had enough Guinness, will confess to a
lineage of pirates. Dashing, hearty, seafaring men, known for their
rich appetites and poor showings on college placement exams.
Supposedly, he claims, they started out with the best of
intentions. Rebellion against a tyrannical crown. But then
conditions changed, and they lost track. They became desperados.
Seduced, driven mad by a combination of lust and endless, chickless
months at sea. They raped, they pillaged, they took things that
were not theirs. See, thats the literal definition of piracy
today. Record pirates, video pirates, love pirates. Maybe thats
why Sam and I broke up. Maybe it was just sex. Maybe it was
something we let our careers get away with. But no matter what, if
we didnt have a hold on it, if it wasnt truly ours, then we had
no right fucking with it. Yeah, we had a lot in common with Liams
pirates, Sam and I. The lust... the abandon... the tendency to just
burn everything in sight. I dont think Ill ever fall in love
Movie Name: Voltron: Defender of the Universe (1984)
Sven: [pushes back the two boulders he parted to get into the cave]
Now youre safe, so why dont you get out of here!
Princess Romelle: What do you mean get out of here?
Sven: Just what I said: go away! Get out of my sight!
Princess Romelle: Whats the matter with you?
Sven: What do you think? Im crazy, cant you tell? Yeah, you got it.
Im a wild man. I live in these tunnels eating roots and mushrooms.
Im crazy. I could do anything!
Princess Romelle: [Gasps] No. I *knew* I recognized your face. You
look different, but...
Sven: But what? I was an unknown slave before I ran away to these
caves. So if you think you know me, well - you must have mistaken
[puts the candle down, lowers his voice]
Sven: ...for somebody else.
Princess Romelle: No, I didnt. You used to be the best navigator in
the Alliance. Then you joined the Voltron Force.
Sven: What are you saying? With a crazy brain like I have, do you
think theyd let me join the Voltron Force? Now go away!
Princess Romelle: [nudges his pointing hand down and crosses her
arms] No. You try to act mean, but youre kind; youre not crazy or
you wouldnt have saved me. I know you *now*.
Princess Romelle: Youre Sven, the Blue Lion.
Sven: How dare you! Who do you think you are, coming here and talking
about Sven? There *is* no Sven!
Princess Romelle: Why are you saying that?
Sven: Because the Sven you speak of is gone. He was nothing but a
failure. A *failure*.
Princess Romelle: No, thats not true. Sven was no failure.
Movie Name: Foxes (1980)
Jeanie: Back in the heavy stoned days, when we used to stay up and
talk a lot, Annie and me, we were talking about dying, how it feels
and all. I said Id never get buried. I couldnt stand them
shoveling dirt in my face. Like, I know Id be dead, but I still
might have this strong compulsion to breathe, okay? But Annie, she
said she wanted to be buried right in the ground under a pear tree.
Really. Not in a box or anything. She said she wanted the roots
going right through her, and each year, wed come along, take a
pear, and go "Hey, Annies tasting good this year, huh?"
