Happy Tuesday everyone.
Thank you for tagging me iScriblr in this new tag. I love these as it gives me a chance to mix up my content and share a bit more about me!! I’ve really enjoyed reading everyone’s 3 quotes in response to this tag, it’s been pretty interesting to see other people’s favourites. Some classics and some inspiring ones I’ve never heard of!
My 1’st Quote tag is taken from Pulp Fiction, one of my favourite ever films. Mia Wallace is my favourite EVER film character. I love women’s early 90’s style and her characterisation is completely iconic. And obviously any Quentin Tarantino film is just a winner anyway.
My favourite quote from the film is:
Mia: Don’t you hate that?
Mia: Uncomfortable silences. Why do we feel it’s necessary to yak about bullshit in order to be comfortable?
Vincent: I don’t know. That’s a good question.
Mia: That’s when you know you’ve found somebody special. When you can just shut the fuck up for a minute and comfortably enjoy the silence.
I think I love this quote so much because it’s pretty badass for her to say. She’s taken out by Vincent by request of her husband to keep her “entertained” like she’s a dog. On Mia’s and Vincent’s dinner outing she’s literally like, shut the fuck up Vincent. She knows she’s better than small talk. It highlights her intelligence and strong character.
I’m someone that can’t help but chat absolute shit in between awkward silences as I always find something to say. So when I first heard Mia say this in my first watching of Pulp I actually sat back like woaaaaah that’s true. I do believe that she’s right, that you’ve found someone mint if you can just sit there and say nothing but still feeling comfortable within their company.
