Meet Joe Black (movie Quotes)

This is one of my favorite movies... here are a few quotes from the movie.
---------------------------
WILLIAM PARRISH: I know it's a cornball thing, but love is passion. Obsession. Someone you can't live without. I say fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy, and who'll love you the same way back. How do you you find 'em? Well, you forget your head and you listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Because the truth is, honey, there's no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love, well, you haven't lived a life at all. But you have to try, because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived.
------------------------
Susan Parrish: So you're a one-girl guy?
Young Man in Coffee Shop: Yes, I am. That's right. Looking for her right now actually. Who knows, you might be her.
-------------------------
William Parrish: I want you to know how much I love you, that you've given a meaning to my life that I had no right to expect, that no one can ever take from me.
Susan Parrish: Dad...
William Parrish: No! I love you so much. And I want you to promise me something. I don't want you to ever worry about me. And if anything should happen, I'm gonna be okay. And everything's gonna be all right. And I have no regrets. And I want you to feel the same way.
Susan Parrish: I love you, Daddy.
William Parrish: That's why it's okay.
-----------------------------
Joe Black: How are you doing?
William Parrish: What the hell do you care?
Joe Black: Just asking, Bill.
William Parrish: You wanna know? I'll tell you. You're looking at a man who is not walking through the valley of the shadow of death. He's galloping into it. At the same time, the business he built with his own hands and head has been commandeered by a couple of cheap pirates. Oh, yes! I almost forgot. My daughter's fallen in love with Death.
---------------------------
Susan Parrish: Do you love making love to me?
Joe Black: Yes
Susan Parrish: More than peanut butter?
Joe Black: Yes. Much more.
----------------------------
William Parrish: I loved Susan from the moment she was born, and I love her now and every minute in between. And what I dream of is a man who will discover her, and that she will discover a man who will love her, who is worthy of her, who is of this world, this time and has the grace, compassion, and fortitude to walk beside her as she makes her way through this beautiful thing called life.
-------------------------------
Jamaican Woman: It nice it happen to you. Like you come to the island and had a holiday. Sun didn't burn you red-red, just brown. You sleep and no mosquito eat you. But the truth is, it bound to happen if you stay long enough. So take that nice picture you got in your head home with you, but don't be fooled. We lonely here mostly too. If we lucky, maybe, we got some nice pictures to take with us.
-------------------------------
[Watching the fireworks above the party before they depart]
William Parrish: It's hard to let go, isn't it?
Joe Black: Yes it is, Bill.
William Parrish: And that's life... what can I tell you.

This is one of my favourite movies ...i cry every time ...and you just made me cry again.
I love the cast in this....and i feel the script on so many levels....
Great story.

I actually really like this movie and don't know many people who do. The peanut butter quote is a personal favourite of mine.

I agree, very much so. I've now added it to my "watch again" list.

If you guys can keep a secret, I'll admit it's a guilty pleasure of mine.

Drew: Who would have ever believed you..an IRS Agent?
Joe: "Death and taxes".

Just prior to that Joe delivers a long dissertation blasting away at Drew that's just great screenwriting.

In case you didn't know, it's actually a remake of an old 1930's film..."Death Takes A Holiday". A catchy and more fitting title, In my opinion.

This is fav movie of mine, H...I like your taste..

Aww crud! Don't you know you're supposed to give a girl a chance to tell you wether or not she can keep a secret prior to actually spilling the beans?!?!

*mutters something under breathe about protocol ...*

Love that line! And actually I have seen "Death Takes A Holiday", I love older movies.

@ djtiger: thanks!
