The ten best lines from Labyrinth

Categories: Film and TV

Let's get one thing straight from the start: I am a woman over thirty, and Labyrinth is one of my all-time favorite movies. In honor of the upcoming Labyrinth Quote-Along on Thursday, November 15, and Friday, November 16 (it's part of the International Film Series at the University of Colorado at Boulder), here are my ten favorite lines that I would love to hear everyone nail at this epic film event.

10. "Dance, Magic, Dance"

Since this is the one you were all waiting for, let's get it out of the way first -- as well as the video clip that everyone wants to see.

Favorite quote: "You remind me of the babe."
"What babe?"
"Babe with the power."
"What power?"
"Power of voodoo."
"Who do?"
"You do."
"Do what?"
"Remind me of the babe."

(You didn't need me to tell you that, either.)

9. Worm in the corridor

The worm's entire speech is worthy of quotation here, but the best line is the one that could have ended the movie an entire hour sooner.

Favorite quote: "If she'd have kept on going down that way, she'd have gone straight to the castle!"

(Second best: "Things aren't always what they seem in this place, so you can't take anything for granted.")
