Nina: "Deeply! Deeply! You passed on deeply, which was your word, which means that you couldn't have meant it! So you're a fraud, that's it!...(They hug) You're probably a figment of my imagination. (pause) Juicily?"

Father of the Bride (1991)

Love is wonderful. Until it happens to your only daughter.

"I used to think a wedding was a simple affair. Boy and girl meet, they fall in love, he buys a ring, she buys a dress, they say I do. I was wrong. That's getting married. A wedding is an entirely different proposition. I know. I've just been through one. Not my own, my daughter's."

"Well, that's the thing about life, is, uh, the surprises, the little things that sneak up on you and grab hold of you."

"Who presents this woman? This woman? But she's not a woman. She's just a kid. And she's leaving us. I realized at that moment that I was never going to come home again and see Annie at the top of the stairs. Never going to see her again at our breakfast table in her nightgown and socks. I suddenly realized what was happening. Annie was all grown up and leaving us, and something inside began to hurt."

Frankie & Johnny (1991)

"I'm a BLT down sort of person, and I think you're looking for someone a little more pheasant under glass."

"Send out for a pizza. Rent a film. That's dinner and a movie. And I don't have to deal with some jerk trying to put his tongue in my ear."

Fried Green Tomatoes (1991)

The secret of life? The secret's in the sauce.

"I can't even look at my own vagina."

Evelyn: "I never get mad, Mrs Threadgoode. Never. The way I was raised, it was bad manners. Well, I got mad and it felt terrific. I felt like I could beat the s--t out of all those punks. Excuse my language. Just beat 'em to a pulp. Beat 'em til they begged for mercy. Towanda the Avenger. And after I, after I wipe out all the punks of this world, I'll take on the wife-beaters, like Frank Bennett, and machine-gun their genitals! Towanda will go on the rampage. I'll put tiny little bombs in Penthouse and Playboy so they'll explode when you open 'em. And I'll ban all fashion models who weigh less than 130 pounds. And I'll give half the military budget to people over 65 and declare wrinkles sexually-desirable. Towanda, Righter of Wrongs, Queen beyond compare!"
Ninny: "How many of them hormones (are) you taking, honey?"

Thelma & Louise (1991)

Somebody said get a life... so they did.

"You shoot off a guy's head with his pants down, believe me, Texas ain't the place you want to get caught."

"I don't ever remember feeling this awake."

Thelma: "Are you sure we should be driving like this, I mean in broad daylight and everything?"
Louise: "No, we shouldn't, but I want to put some distance between us and the scene of our last goddamn crime."

Thelma: "But, I don't know, somethin's crossed over in me. I can't go back. I mean, I just couldn't live."
Louise: "I know, I know what you mean. Anyway, don't wanna end up on the damned Geraldo show."

Enchanted April (1992)

It's April in Italy, and anything can happen...even love.

"In my day, husbands and beds were very seldom mentioned in the same breath. Husbands were taken seriously, as the only true obstacle to sin."

A League of Their Own (1992)

A woman's place is on home, first, second, and third.

"Careers and higher education are leading to the masculinization of women, with enormously dangerous consequences to the home, the children, and our country. When our boys come home from war, what kind of girls will they be coming home to? And now the most disgusting example of this sexual confusion: Mr. Walter Harvey of Harvey Bars is presenting us with women's baseball. Right here in Chicago, young girls plucked from their families are gathered at Harvey Field to see which one of them can be the most masculine. Mr. Harvey, like your candy bars, you're completely... nuts."

"Ladies, ladies. You can't play ball in this, you can't play ball with us. Right now, there are 38 girls getting train tickets home who will play in a bathing suit if I ask them...There is no smoking. There is also no drinking and no men. All of your social engagements will be cleared through your team chaperones. Plus, each of you will have regular classes in charm and beauty school...Every girl in this league is going to be a lady."

"Well, I was just wonderin' 'cause I couldn't figure out why you would throw home when we've got a two-run lead. You let the tying run get on second and we lost the lead because of you. Now you start using your head. That's that lump that's three feet above your ass. Are you crying?...Are you crying? ARE YOU CRYING? There's no crying! THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!"

Prelude to a Kiss (1992)

-- "I love you."
-- "What about when I'm a 100 years old with a mustache and yellow teeth?"
-- "I'll still love you."
-- "I'm sagging down to here and I'm bald."
-- "I'll love you all the more."
-- "Sure?"
-- "Yes, I promise."
