Good Will Hunting is a really well written movie. Sure, everything is shrouded in a thick Boston accent, but underneath the cursing and southie vernacular are a bunch of pretty inspirational life lessons.
Live up to your potential. Live life to the fullest. Nobody is perfect. Here are the best quotes from one of the best movies. Enjoy.
Most days I wish I never met you because then I could sleep at night and I wouldn’t have to walk around with the knowledge there was someone like you out there. Lambeau, Good Will Hunting
You just spent 150 grand on an education you could have gotten for $1.50 in late fees at the public library. Will, Good Will Hunting
Most people never get to see how brilliant they can be. They don’t find teachers that believe in them. They get convinced they’re stupid. Tom, Good Will Hunting
It’ll be some kid from Southie over there takin’ shrapnel in the ass. He comes back to find that the plant he used to work at got exported to the country he just got back from. And the guy who put the shrapnel in his ass got his old job, ’cause he’ll work for fifteen cents a day and no bathroom breaks. Will, Good Will Hunting
You’re not perfect, and let me save you the suspense, this girl you met, she isn’t perfect either. But the question is whether or not you’re perfect for each other. That’s the whole deal. That’s what intimacy is all about. Sean, Good Will Hunting
Look – you’re my best friend, so don’t take this the wrong way. In twenty years, if you’re still livin’ here, comin’ over to my house to watch the Patriots games, still workin’ construction, I’ll fuckin’ kill you. That’s not a threat; now, that’s a fact. I’ll fuckin’ kill you. Chuckie, Good Will Hunting
My wife used to fart when she was nervous. She had all sorts of wonderful idiosyncrasies. You know what? She used to fart in her sleep. Sorry I shared that with you. One night it was so loud it woke the dog up. She woke up and gone like “oh was that you?” I’d say yeah…I didn’t have the heart to tell her. Sean, Good Will Hunting
So this is a Harvard bar, huh? I thought there’d be equations and shit on the wall. Chuckie, Good Will Hunting
That’s why I’m not talkin’ right now about some girl I saw at a bar twenty years ago and how I always regretted not going over and talking to her. I don’t regret the 18 years I was married to Nancy. I don’t regret the six years I had to give up counseling when she got sick. And I don’t regret the last years when she got really sick. And I sure as hell don’t regret missin’ the damn game. That’s regret. Sean, Good Will Hunting
You know, I was on this plane once. And I’m sittin’ there and the captain comes on and he does his whole, “We’ll be cruising at 35,000 feet,” then he puts the mike down but he forgets to turn it off. Then he turns to the copilot and goes, “You know, all I could go for right now is a fuckin’ blow job and a cup of coffee.” So the stewardess fuckin’ goes bombin’ up from the back of the plane to tell him the mic’s still on, and this guy behind me goes, “Hey hon, don’t forget the coffee!” Will, Good Will Hunting
My boy’s wicked smart. Morgan, Good Will Hunting
You’ve never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known somebody who could level you with her eyes. Feelin’ like God put an angel on earth just for you, who could rescue you from the depths of hell. Sean, Good Will Hunting
Every day I come by your house and I pick you up. And we go out. We have a few drinks, and a few laughs, and it’s great. But you know what the best part of my day is? For about ten seconds, from when I pull up to the curb and when I get to your door, ’cause I think, maybe I’ll get up there and I’ll knock on the door and you won’t be there. No goodbye. No see you later. No nothing. You just left. I don’t know much, but I know that. Chuckie, Good Will Hunting
Dear Sean, tell the professor sorry about the job. I had to go see about a girl. Good Will Hunting
Will: Does this violate the doctor-patient relationship?
Sean: Not unless you grab my ass. Good Will Hunting
