Parting Gifts

The time has come, my three loyal readers.  This will be Cinephile Femme’s final blog post here at Mesa County Libraries.  In honor of this bittersweet occasion, I have compiled 10 of my very favorite closing lines in cinema history.  They aren’t necessarily the most famous (see: “Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship”), but they have all resonated and stuck with me.

 

1. “After all, tomorrow is another day.” — Gone With the Wind (1939)

2. “Well, nobody’s perfect.” — Some Like It Hot (1959)

3. “I was cured all right.” — A Clockwork Orange (1971)

4. “You have to have a little faith in people.” — Manhattan (1979)

5. “Why don’t we just wait here for a while… see what happens?” — The Thing (1982)

6. “I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?”                            — Stand By Me (1986)

7. “Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it.” — Edward Scissorhands (1990)

8. “I’m having an old friend for dinner.” — The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

9. “And like that, he’s gone.” — The Usual Suspects (1995)

10. “Ernest Hemingway once wrote, ‘The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.’ I agree with the second            part.” — Se7en (1995)

 

And, that does it for me.  It’s been rapturous to post my little opinions here for the past three and a half years.

 

So long, and thanks for all the fish!

Hannibal
