“So I’ve spent every day since then chasing Amy…so to speak.”

From: Chasing Amy

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Silent Bob

The story behind the quote: The quote comes from the 1997 film, Chasing Amy. The film is about a male comic artist named Holden McNeil who falls in love with a girl named Alyssa who turns out to be a lesbian.

The quote comes after Holden McNeil (played by Ben Affleck) has a big fight with Alyssa and they break up because she is much more experienced in bed than he thought because she’s a lesbian. He goes have lunch with his friends, Jay and Silent Bob (played by Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith, respectively). Silent Bob reveals he was in the same type of situation as Holden and he talks about his past with a girl named Amy, who he broke up with when she revealed she was also more adventurous in bed. After the story, Silent Bob delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom: Always cherish the people you have in your life. They may make mistakes but, if they really are important to you, you shouldn’t let those mistakes sour your relationship with them. Because you may regret losing them in the future.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
