In the approximately two hours we spend watching a movie or some 30 minutes for a TV episode, we could be captivated by the charm of the protagonist, enraged by the wickedness of the antagonist, be enchanted by the vibrant cinematography or the romantic musical scoring. Or we could be stunned by a line delivered by a character.
There is surely no scarcity of these memorable lines in the local movies and TV series shown this year. A look back:
“One slap, one kiss.” “TALK BACK AND YOU’RE DEAD”
There is a sexy kind of push and pull beneath this line, uttered in one confrontation scene between the lead characters. We bet other girls would love to take Samantha’s (Nadine Lustre) place and keep slapping Top (James Reid) to get a kiss after kiss after kiss…
“I can’t breathe.” “SHE’S DATING THE GANGSTER”
“I love you” can be too convenient and predictable an expression that some opt to use an alternative. In the case of Athena (Kathryn Bernardo) and Kenji (Daniel Padilla), it’s “I can’t breathe” – as if saying, “I can’t breathe when you’re near me,” “You’re the air I breathe,” or “I can’t live without you.”
“I deserve an explanation. I deserve an acceptable reason.” “STARTING OVER AGAIN”
This line definitely deserves to be part of the list. Following the January release of the trailer, this line became one of the most reenacted and impersonated by people from all walks of life. And duh, when the one claiming an explanation and acceptable reason is Papa P (Piolo Pascual), how can you not give it?
“Adik ka na naman sa pag-asa eh. Subukan mo kayang lumaklak ng realidad?” “STARTING OVER AGAIN”
To not include this line would be to neglect the multitude of reposts it received in social media. This line, uttered by Wella (Beauty Gonzalez) to Ginny (Toni Gonzaga), hits hard because it’s as if she’s saying it to us. We can be too caught up with our fairy-tale desires that we often lose sight of what is real.
“How do I unlove you?” “STARTING OVER AGAIN”
This line is powerful because it sums up all the feelings of pain, of loss, and of the love that remains even when things have ended. And it’s a sad, helpless statement, too, because you can keep asking that question, but you can never fulfil what it is about.
“Walang sa’yo, Nicole! Akin lang ang asawa ko!” “THE LEGAL WIFE”
Another much-reenacted and impersonated line, originally delivered by Angel Locsin for her character Monica. This line is too bold it could’ve swallowed Monica’s husband-stealing best friend Nicole (Maja Salvador) whole.
“Isn’t it amazing? Isn’t it surprising? Isn’t it?” “BRIDE FOR RENT”
This line wouldn’t have been as amusing and memorable if not for Kim Chiu’s standout delivery for her character Rocky – while sitting on Rocco’s (Xian Lim) lap. Add to that her winning facial expression. 10,000 ounces of cuteness.
“Kem bak to da young en byutipool you!”
“BEAUTY IN A BOTTLE”
This could’ve just passed as an ordinary beauty commercial statement, but it soared with flying colors thanks to Angelica Panganiban, who made stomachs hurt (in a good way, of course) because of her character Estelle’s “bad” delivery.
“GOT TO BELIEVE”
Chichay (Kathryn Bernardo) gave us a new idea of saying sorry: high-pitched, almost sing-song, but still adorable. Now if you were Joaquin (Daniel Padilla), will you not forgive her?
“Ako na ang mahal ni Victor at hindi ikaw…! ‘Wag kang bitter!”
This line encapsulates the brashness, or perhaps, just plain confidence of Woman No. 2, who, in this case, is Janine (Erich Gonzales). It’s raw and real at the same time, that real-life legal Yvonnes (Kaye Abad) wouldn’t help but cringe.
