“How do you shoot the devil in the back? What if you miss?”


I was walking back from buying a Valentine’s Day card for H this morning (nothing like leaving it to the last minute – what a rip-off cards are nowadays – I’ll be making one next year – if I do it with K, I’ll be ‘imaginative’ as opposed to ‘cheap’) when a quotation from ‘The Usual Suspects’ just popped into my head. If anyone can think of a better quotation from a film than this, then hats off to them…

“Keaton always said, ‘I don’t believe in God, but I’m afraid of him’. Well I do believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is Keyser Soze.”

Superb line, superb film – a guaranteed mainstay in the ever changing ‘top ten favourite films’ list in my mind.



  1. the ‘making the card’ approach is a false ecomomy… you end up having to fork out for stuff like glitter and coloured pens than you only use once… ends cup costing about a tenner!

    i say get your valentine card from here…

    movie quotes… gotta be something from the big lebouski

  2. That site is a great find – and could have saved me £3.50!

    As for ‘The Big Lebowski’, the only quotation that comes to mind is the oft-repeated:

    “That rug really tied the room together.”

  3. the best (yet not really repeatable on a family site) are the ones by ‘jesus’ … in the welcome to the hotel california (gypsy kings) scene.
