Pop Culture References – TV and Movies

So many characters have inspired me to feature them for one reason or another. Here’s a compilation of the ones I’ve created over the last few years. You can check out some of their featured posts below.

Alex from Flashdance

Welder by day, exotic dancer by night – Flashdance

It’s like – I go out there and the music starts and you begin to feel it – and your body just starts to move. I know it sounds really silly. But, something inside you just clicks – and you just take off and you’re gone. It’s like you’re somebody else for a second. Some nights I – some nights I just can’t wait to get out there, just so I can disappear.

Fool! Don’t you see now that I could have poisoned you a hundred times had I been able to live without you?

Look. Any longer out on that road and I’m one of them, you know? A terminal crazy… only I got a bronze badge to say I’m one of the good guys.

Just don’t make eye contact.

Princess Leia
Princess Leia
A simple outfit that doesn’t require a lot of effort (since that’s how Jabba preferred his women).

Carrie Fisher said that scene, “was like, ‘Where am I in all of this?’ … I have to stay with the slug with the big tongue! Nearly naked, which is not a style choice for me. … It wasn’t my choice. When [director George Lucas] showed me the outfit, I thought he was kidding and it made me very nervous. I had to sit very straight because I couldn’t have lines on my sides, like little creases. No creases were allowed, so I had to sit very, very rigid straight.”

What redeems it is I get to kill him, which was so enjoyable. … I sawed his neck off with that chain that I killed him with. I really relished that because I hated wearing that outfit and sitting there rigid straight, and I couldn’t wait to kill him.

Buffy the vampire slayer

Never leave home without a stake.

Now, we can do this the hard way, or… well, actually there’s just the hard way.

Zoe from Firefly

It’s a shame Firefly only ran for one season but at least there was a movie.

This is really not my area of expertise, Doctor. I tend to be putting these into people more than the other thing.

Do you have a favourite quote from any of these movies and shows? Bonus point if you can include a link to the scene it comes from.
