Disney Movie Quotes

I think that Disney movies stay active in our collective memory because they actually show parallels to our lives. Few movies do this in a meaningful way, ye Disney does it time and time again.

So here are a couple of quotes that found their way into my life (and why):

  • "Just keep swimming" – Dory, Finding Nemo
    • Anytime I run into something difficult
  • "Oh, wee lamb." – Merida, Brave
    • when my sister was complaining
  • "Where is my supersuit?" – Lucius, The Incredibles
    • When anything has gone missing, or when my sister would borrow/steal a clothes from my closet
  • "Because I'm a lady, that's why" – Marie, The Aristocats
    • Whenever my boyfriend questions my behavior
  • "But daddy I love him!" – Ariel, The little mermaid
    • I just find this one fun to yell dramatically
  • "I'm especially good at expectorating!" Gaston, Beauty and the Beast
    • Use this one in those "oh, duh" moments I sometimes find myself in
  • "How about a girl whose gotta brain? And always speaks her mind? ...NAH!" – Mulan, Mulan
    • When people don't take me serious because I am a woman
  • "Adventure is out there!" – Up
    • This one makes me cry
  • "Hakuna Matata" – Lion King
    • I mean, come on, it means no worries! That is good right!

Yeah, I know, I am a Disney nerd....
