Quotes Corner - 2014 Edition

I have a regular feature called Quotes Corner (you'd be forgiven for not knowing given how irregularly I get round to posting one) where I collect together some of wittiest, snarkiest and most memorable lines from a recent film or TV show. In the past, I've covered Community, Modern Family and even Karl Pilkington. 

This December, I've been documenting every and anything that summarises 2014 in film - from a soundtrack playlist to my Top 5 Worst Films of the Year - and I decided it'd be cool to revive this past feature with a bumper edition jam-packed full of the most memorable (for better or for worst) lines from films this year.

So, without further ado, here are some of my favourite quotes from 2014!

"That's Vietnamese Jesus now. See this is a Vietnamese church, you racist sacrilegious sack of shit! Yeah, Vietnamese Jesus is just drippin' swag-goo!" Captain Dickson (Ice Cube), 22 Jump Street

"You fucked Captain Dickson's daughter? Captain? What the fuck, you bragged to him to his face!

"You know, I wasn't trying to win you over. I was telling you to fuck off." - Greta (Keira Knightley), Begin Again

"We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us." - Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), Interstellar

What are your favourite quotes from 2014? Let me know if I missed any in the comments down below! Thanks :)


  1. Great collections of quotes. The Wolf of Wall Street and Gone Girl might be my favorite ones of the year - especially Tyler Perry's. Jake Gyllenhaal's lines from Nightcrawler stick out to me too. "I feel like grabbing you by your ears right now and screaming, "I'm not ****ing interested!". Instead, I'm going to drive home and do some accounting."

    1. Thanks Katy :) Tyler Perry had some surprisingly good lines in Gone Girl, kinda stealing the show in some scenes. I really liked Carrie Coon's character as well :)

  2. I love this post! Some brilliant quotes in here, and many that I'd forgotten, so thanks for reminding me :)
    - Allie

    1. Thanks Allie! Not a problem, my pleasure :)

  3. Yeah, Guardians had a lot of good quotes, didn't it? Good stuff there. I also have a few favorites from Interstellar, such as Anne Hathaway's speech about love transcending time and space, but also the exchange between Cooper and Case: "That's not possible." "No, it's necessary." Goosebumps, dude.

    Also, that TMNT quote? Just, lol, WOW! XD

    1. It sure did :D I really love that TMNT quote hahah, I was just rolling in my seat when he said it in the movie :P

  4. I love the list, man!

    Strangely enough, I did not realize how much Cooper was a contradiction to himself, in Interstellar. Of course, those quotes are memorable, but he throws it all out the door for his family/dirt.

    The best quote of the year is probably the Gyllenhaal line, but "my face is the warrant" is a close second! ha

    1. Thanks Tanner :) He does a bit doesn't he? Fun fact about the warrant line, is that it was completely improvised. Most of the best lines are!

  5. The Wolf of Wall Street was heavily featured in my last year's awards especially Jean Dujardin's ''Take your suit, take your dick and move your ass!' so many great ones there, especially Jordan's I choose rich every time and my winner - I WILL NOT DIE SOBER!!!!

    From this year my favorite is probably a whole bunch of quotes from Amy Dunne's tirade about men and surprisingly a lot from Interstellar, mainly 'Because my dad promised me' which really made me cry

    1. Amy did have a lot of great quotes, and I think Rosamund just made them even more impactful :)
