Twitter Users Ponder Less Well-Known Film Quote That They Use All the Time

I saw this Twitter prompt from writer Daniel Kibblesmith yesterday:

I instantly thought of three things.

One, because I find it applies to the shitty way my stupid brain works all the time: ‘I’m nostalgic for things that haven’t happened yet’, from Noah Baumbach’s feature debut, Kicking And Screaming—a film that I absolutely love, which was first recommended to me by this very site actually, way back in the day, and which also came up in the Twitter thread in response to Kibblesmith’s prompt:

Two, because I’ve been laughing at the delivery and the placement ever since I first saw the film a year or so after release: David Cross’ character’s, ‘Carrie, I am making a bird house!’ from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

And three, because it’s such a vital component of one of the greatest scenes in modern cinema, Guillermo Francella’s delivery of: ‘A guy can change anything. His face, his home, his family, his girlfriend, his religion, his God. But there’s one thing he can’t change. He can’t change his passion.’

Here are some of Twitter’s responses, the lesser fame of some of which may be debatable, but that’s all relative:
