Film Title/Year, Tagline(s) and Memorable Quote(s)

The Joy Luck Club (1993)

"I tell you the story because I was raised the Chinese way. I was taught to desire nothing, to swallow other people's misery, and to eat my own bitterness. And even though I taught my daughter the opposite, still she came out the same way. Maybe it is because she was born to me and she was born a girl, and I was born to my mother and I was born a girl, all of us like stairs, one step after another, going up, going down, but always going the same way. No, this cannot be, this not knowing what you're worth, this not begin with you. My mother not know her worth until too late - too late for her, but not for me. Now we will see if not too late for you, hmm?"

I really feel, short, to recap in a slightly clearer version, uh, in the words of David Cassidy in fact, uhm, while he was still with the Partridge Family, uh, 'I think I love you,' and uh, I-I, uh, just wondered by any chance, you wouldn't like to... Umm...Uh...Uh...No, no, no of course not...Uhm, I'm an idiot, ha, he's not... Excellent, excellent, fantastic...lovely to see you, sorry to disturb...Better get on...Well, I thought it over a lot, you know, I wanted to get it just right."

-- I don't call it anything. I just wasn't brought up to talk about a person's anatomy.
-- That's probably because you don't have a word for it.
-- That's just ridiculous. I do, too. It just doesn't often come up.
-- Okay. What is this, below the belly button?
-- I'm not gonna say 'pussy' if that's what you're after, okay, I hate that.
-- Okay. So, what do you call it?
-- Down there.
-- Oh, come on! 'Down there!'
-- Well, 'vagina' seems so formal.
-- But you make it sound like a basement!
-- Okay. Honestly?
-- Yeah.
-- Fine. 'Hoo-hoo' or 'cissy.'
-- You're kidding, right? A 'hoo-hoo' or a 'cissy,' what is that?
-- Well, that's what my mother called it. I had a 'hoo-hoo' or a 'cissy' and my brother had a 'noodle' or a 'dingle.'
-- And that's what you still call it, huh?
-- Well, it's better than 'pussy.' Or 'beaver.' What's that about? I never got that. Or worse...
-- Worse? Did you say worse? Now, what could be worse? I have to hear you say it.

-- What? What was that?
-- I said it!
-- No, you breathed it! I want to hear you say it.
-- All right! All right. All right. 'C-U-N-T, cunt.'
-- Yeah?
-- 'Cunt.' 'Cunt.' 'CUNT!'
