Movie lines you'd use as an epitaph--how morbid!


Recommended Posts

Maybe it's the times.  Of course I'll never need one.  Now if I did, what would I use. . . .?  I know, :

Things are indeed hopeless, hopeless--but not serious.

Fred Astaire, Finian's Rainbow (1968).

The Monster in Bride Of Frankenstein (1935)-

And now THIS one Jim has me thinking that if I should die while my house is engulfed in flames, my tombstone should read:

"Fire BAD!"

;)

Can't think of a movie line, and as I'm requesting cremation, the epitaph would have to be engraved on my urn.  And it'd be the title of the '76 RON HOWARD movie---

EAT MY DUST.  ;)

Hey,  didn't you just say "Well, I'm Episcopalian"? 

Now you're Hindu?         😉

Yeah, I'm Episcopalian, but that doesn't mean the Hindus don't have it right.  And I'd guess any deity, be it God or KRISHNA, wouldn't treat any soul differently from another.  ;)  Like, I don't believe there's different Gods for each religious doctrine or denomination. 

And besides, I think it'd be an amusing epitaph.  ;)

I think I can see people walking up to my tombstone and reading the following inscription upon it:

"Sorry I missed you, but then you were always good at being a moving target."

(...well, at least that SOUNDS like something Groucho might've said in some flick anyway, RIGHT?!)  ;)

Yes, since I looked it up on a search engine.  :P

I'll pick "Sometimes you gotta say 'what the f***'" from Risky Business.

I thought that all discerning people who claimed familiarity with good movies would recognize it as a line spoken by the character Hoban 'Wash' Washburn in the movie: Serenity (2005). It is spoken at the moment when a person either slinks away and lives the rest of their life as a coward or they accept that they do not have to be brave to accomplish a great good if they will only relinquish their sense of self and allow fate to carry them where it will. I clearly misjudged my audience.

I could have gone with that character's second-most-famous line: "Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"

At the very least you misjudged me.  I try never to make that mistake.  I always cite my reference.  Unless, like Homer, I nod.
