Q and A Kiss

Another week, and another Q and A put together because one of the faithful kingdomites asked for a movie specifically.  This week’s set, all quotes from the movie French Kiss, was thrown together based on a request from Jodi Lea.

Do you have a movie you’d like me include in these Q and A sessions?  Or a theme?  Or a specific actor?  Let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can put together for you.

(All previous Q and A iterations are here.)

As a reminder:  The Q’s are life situations you may find yourself in, and the A’s are the corresponding quotes from movies that you could considering using in those situations if you were mad like me.  But, I am a professional Jester, so take that into consideration before trying them on your own.

*WARNING – this Q and A is less “PG” than some – it’s not terrible, but there are some words that may not be child friendly if you are concerned about such things.*

Q: What should you say when someone asks what your talent is?
A: “For me, bullshit is like breathing.”
– Luc (Kevin Kline)

Q: What should you ask when someone is bemoaning the fact they had a bad night at the tables?
A: “You lost your birthright in one hand of poker?”
– Kate (Meg Ryan)

Q: What should you say when someone you don’t like is complaining about someone else you don’t like?
A: “Of course you know him. All you bastards know each other.”
– Kate (Meg Ryan)

Q: What should you say when a friend is going on and on about how perfect everything is for them at the moment?
A: “When people tell me they are happy, my ass begins to twitch.”
– Luc (Kevin Kline)

Q: What should you say when someone asks if you’ve seen the most recent French film that is gaining notoriety at all the film festivals?
A: “Those French. They hate us, they smoke, they have a whole relationship with dairy products I don’t understand.”
– Kate (Meg Ryan)

Q: What should you say when someone asks how your blind date went?
A: “I met this woman, this apparition, this goddesse.”
– Charlie (Timothy Hutton)

Q: What should you say when someone asks why you don’t like to fly?
A: “I get around as nature intended: in a car.”
– Kate (Meg Ryan)

Q: What should you respond when someone asks if you like them?
A: “I like you. But I don’t like the way you say with your face all scrunched up, “you’re French, aren’t you?” And then I don’t like how you say, with your eyes all squinty, “all men are bastards.””
– Luc (Kevin Kline)

Q: What should you say when there is announcement on a plane and the person sitting next to you asks what it was (they missed it because they were too busy playing with their iDevice)?
A: “The pilot said there is a crack in the engine, but not to worry, he’ll take off anyway.”
– Luc (Kevin Kline)

Q: What should you retort when that same persons says, “I guess I should pay attention”?
A: “Maybe if you did, you wouldn’t have that little problem we’re not supposed to talk about.”
– Kate (Meg Ryan)


A great film with top class actors to be sure, but still, for the simple plot this one could also have been included in the “films that punch above their weight series.”  As far as rom-coms go, this one offers a depth and script above and beyond.  That could just be due to the performance of Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline though.  What do you think?  Here there be jewelry thieves and silliness and love, above all else there is love, and some monsters too.  Thanks for playing along.

    • It’s one of those movies that is better than it probably should be.
      But, considering limited time constraints and the plethora of fantastic movies out there… it certainly doesn’t need to be moved to the top of your list.

  1. I like the quotes and the film, although whenever I hear mention of “French Kiss” lactose intolerance is always the first thing that springs to mind!

    I’m now going to have a look at the rest of the entries in your series.

  2. Bravo! Hubby and I quote that movie ourselves when situations warrant it. My personal favorite is “Fester, fester, fester. Rot, rot, rot.” -Kate (Meg Ryan). You would be surprised how often you can use that one in real life 🙂
    Thanks for the fun!

  3. Ya, more than anything, it was the cast that elevated the movie. The script was not shabby too. I loved the soundtrack though. Most especially “La Mer” as sung by Kevin Kline.

    Have you done any of the Ocean’s series yet? Or how about Savages? I know. It will be an R-rated post. Or Once Upon a Time in Mexico? Or it’s prequel, Desperado?
