Sure, we all want to mimic the heroics we see in movies. Who wouldn’t like to stop crime like Batman or plumb the depths of the ocean like Steve Zissou (or a more legitimate undersea explorer)? What we really pine for, though, is the ability to reel off snappy, poignant dialogue like the characters in our favorite films. There’s plenty of iconic film dialogue out there that we’d never be in a position to employ (“Leave the gun; take the cannoli”; “We’re going to need a bigger boat”), but there are so many classic film lines that would be just perfect to unleash in regular conversation. It’s just that as living breathing people, we aren’t allowed to be awesome all the time.
