Best Scene Quotes

  1. “I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water.” ~ Ray Charles
  2. “Where the world ceases to be the scene of our personal hopes and wishes, where we face it as free beings admiring, asking and observing, there we enter the realm of Art and Science.” ~ Albert Einstein
  3. “Kids at skate parks will step up and challenge me to a game of skate, but I’m over that, I really don’t care. I’m all about participating, and I’m all about being a part of this scene, but there’s certain vibes I just don’t get along with.” ~ Mike Vallely
  4. “Take nothing for granted. Make an emotional discovery as often as you can find one in every scene. Ask yourself: What is new?” ~ Michael Shurtleff

  5. “But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she. Be not her maid, since she is envious; Her vestal livery is but sick and green And none but fools do wear it; cast it off. It is my lady, O, it is my love! Oh, that she knew she were!” ~ William Shakespeare
  6. “The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C. This wasn’t for any religious reasons. They couldn’t find three wise men and a virgin.” ~ Jay Leno
  7. “I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in providence, for the illumination of the ignorant and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.” ~ John Adams
  8. “The battlefield is a scene of constant chaos. The winner will be the one who controls that chaos, both his own and the enemies.” ~ Napoleon Bonaparte

  9. “Film your murders like love scenes, and film your love scenes like murders.” ~ Alfred Hitchcock

  12. “Ecstasy is not really part of the scene we can do on celluloid.” ~ Orson Welles

  13. “Because the writer must be a participant in the scene, while he’s writing it — or at least taping it, or even sketching it. Or all three. Probably the closest analogy to the ideal would be a film director/producer who writes his own scripts, does his own camera work and somehow manages to film himself in action, as the protagonist or at least a main character.” ~ Hunter S. Thompson

  17. “Faith-is the pierless bridge supporting what We see unto the scene that we do not.” ~ Emily Dickinson
  18. “Don’t go into great detail describing places and things, unless you’re ­Margaret Atwood and can paint scenes with language. You don’t want descriptions that bring the action, the flow of the story, to a standstill.” ~ Elmore Leonard
  19. “It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.” ~ Anais Nin
  20. “I probably still haven’t completely adapted to the world. I don’t know, I feel like this isn’t the real world. The people, the scene: they just don’t seem real to me.” ~ Haruki Murakami

  21. “Writing is rewriting. A writer must learn to deepen characters, trim writing, intensify scenes. To fall in love with the first draft to the point where one cannot change it is to greatly enhance the prospects of never publishing.” ~ Richard North Patterson
  22. “The world’s a scene of changes.” ~ Abraham Cowley
  23. “I love just seeing shots of New York inside of a fictional movie that are not controlled. I do not like shots with extras, I have to say. I don’t mind extras in other scenes, but I love New York City streets just as they look. I don’t even care if someone looks at the camera. It doesn’t bother me.” ~ Greta Gerwig
  24. “The way television works is that directors come in and out, and they’re not there all the time, following every character through every scene. They’re vagabonds who go from one show to another.” ~ Amy Sherman-Palladino

  25. “[In acting] I like the fight scenes because you don’t have to remember lines.” ~ Travis Fimmel
  26. “My favorite thing to do is action-driven, emotionally-charged scenes. If it’s not just two people talking in a room, but it’s on the move and things are happening and it’s chaotic, and emotion comes from the characters and from the action, and the fall-out ultimately changes the character relationships, that exactly the kind of stuff I like writing.” ~ Geoff Johns
  27. “Actually I’m a big fan of Spielberg and the way he shoots action scenes.” ~ Tommy Wirkola
  28. “I really like when I read a scene and it scares me. That makes me excited.” ~ Lily Rabe

  29. “It’s hard work. It’s really hard work, but it’s really interesting. We have this camera, I think it’s called a SimulCam, and when you play it back, you can see the giant in the scene you just shot. It’s incredible. You’re reacting to a tennis ball that’s way up there, then when you watch it, it’s this huge giant’s face on it. Wow. That’s cool. I just can’t wait to see it when it’s all edited together and the special effects are all crystal clear. It’s going to be, hopefully, amazing.” ~ Eleanor Tomlinson
  30. “The intimate conversations have its moments, because you have to sell the characters, because there is so much going on. It’s so easy to get lost in the special effects and forget about the performances. The dialogue scenes have been great. It’s been great working with Bryan and the writers to find where we’re going and what’s the story. Yeah, it’s been really, really interesting.” ~ Eleanor Tomlinson
  31. “But when there were certain moments or scenes that required a very specific nuance or performance, I myself would act out the scene or the sequence and that would inspire the actors. Of course, I can’t really express emotions on camera, but I was very active in showing a certain action or a blocking for an actor. I would also participate in certain stunts myself and because of that, I would get bruises or cuts on my knees and elbows.” ~ Kim Jee-woon
  32. “I hope to take advantage of the Netflix organism and see if there are ways to get in new material and see if there are ways to do deleted scenes.” ~ Mitchell Hurwitz

  33. “Josh [Gad] is such an amazing improviser and is so good when the material is flowing from him that sometimes, if a written scene isn’t working quite right, I’ll tell him that we’ve got it and that he can just play. He’ll blow us away with some super weird stuff and some wild things that we might use bits and pieces of in the edit, and then I’ll say, “Just for good measure, let’s do one more of the scripted version.”” ~ Josh Gad
  34. “We will be looking at things like the confluence of a scene, and we still have all these creative decisions to make. In general, we’re going to just try to make these under a half-hour. We’re going to try to take that kind of cable TV comedy model.” ~ Mitchell Hurwitz
  35. “There are elements of that, where you’ll see a scene again and you’ll recognize it, but I wouldn’t say it’s got one conceit like that, at all. It definitely has those jokes, but it would be wrong to say this is a show where, every time you see it, you see a new angle.” ~ Mitchell Hurwitz
  36. “‘Fringe’ is essentially a love story, so the scenes where Walter had close connection with Peter, but also with Anna’s character or Jasika’s character, were very special to me.” ~ John Noble

  37. “Even on the old show, we would maybe not all be in the scene. Sometimes there would be a penthouse scene and everyone would get together. But, even in that context, it would be because somebody was missing.” ~ Mitchell Hurwitz
  38. “Walter is incredibly complex. I do a lot of thinking about the work I do, and try to get the rhythms of scenes.” ~ John Noble
  39. “You’re looking, moment by moment and scene by scene, how you can tell the most interesting story. So, we had this great short and we knew that we had a story about a boy and his dog. Because we had that pure emotional core, we could go on crazy tangents and always come back to Victor and Sparky. When I wrote in stuff like Weird Girl and the cat poop, Dutch Day and the windmill, it felt like it was part of Tim’s universe.” ~ John August
  40. “The challenge, and also what I like most about a big ensemble movie, is that all actors have completely different processes and all of them prefer scenes to be done a different way.” ~ Jamie Linden

  41. “I’ve been in so many funeral scenes from The Sopranos, and I think I’ve even been in one on Sons of Anarchy. Those scenes, as a human being, are the most tedious scenes, of all time. You’re waiting, all day, in the blistering hot heat. So, I didn’t need to be there.” ~ Drea de Matteo
  42. “The visual stuff just lives inside of you. As far as really being able to take care of an actor on a set, how to talk to an actor, and how to get what you need out of a scene is probably where I might know a thing or two. Although, in TV, the actors are pretty much left alone. It’s really the writer’s medium more than anything.” ~ Drea de Matteo
  43. “Even dramatically how you position some person, the depth, the existence [in 3D] is different than a flat image even though by itself it has depth, we create the illusion of depth. For example, some of the shots I have to stay closer to the actor because it’s a young actor, I like it closer for some of the shots. I watch 2D scenes next to the camera, then when I go back to my station and watch it in 3D I have to go back and reduce his acting, he has to shrink a little bit because he peeks out more.” ~ Ang Lee
  44. “Using the energy in a scene can really cut the fat off of something and streamline it. It can make it work for you and activate it for you in a way.” ~ Greta Gerwig

  45. “For me, the thing that I love about the show is the psychological thriller aspect of it. It’s frightening and it’s scary, and there are all these things that happen. You have these really dramatic scenes, and then you get in a scene with him and I can’t tell you how many times I would start cracking up.” ~ Kyra Zagorsky
  46. “There were a couple of times that we did end up moving the set [of Helix] outside to shoot some of the outside scenes, just because we needed a bit more space, and that ended up being a little bit more helpful and easier to breathe, when you’re dealing with some of the fake snow stuff. It was a lot of fun, and it looks amazing.” ~ Kyra Zagorsky
  47. “Everyone had coverage. You might have like three lines, but there were 10 people, so they would cover each person. Three lines could take 12 or 15 hours, but it was fun because everybody was together. As hard as it was to shoot those scenes, I always enjoyed when we were all together.” ~ Peter Facinelli
  48. “Even in the big movies, if the scenes are very big, I’m not fond of them as much as I’m fond of small actor scenes.” ~ Ayelet Zurer

  49. “Bill [Condon] is such a great actor’s director. He cares about what you’re thinking. And, he’s very open. Even though he was pressed for time, and he was doing two movies at once, and all this stuff was happening around him, he would still take time to sit there and talk to you about your scene and your character and what you were going through. That was really a treat.” ~ Kellan Lutz
  50. “What I enjoy most with acting is when it’s a good scene with one or two other actors, and you feel a strong connection and you don’t know how you’re going to respond, and everybody is listening to each other and getting affected by each other, and even though you’ve rehearsed it many times, it feels like it’s happening right now.” ~ Joel Kinnaman
  51. “There’s an economy in sports that I always think is a useful metaphor for acting. You have an objective. You’re trying to win, and of course, you want to do well. You want to use good techniques so you enforce it, but also you don’t do things you don’t have to do. It’s very economical, and I think that in acting the most economical way through a scene is always the best. It’s active. There is the sense of the fight and you want to win.” ~ Greta Gerwig
  52. “Even if the dramatic scenes are really hard, if you’re happy with what you have and it’s been creative and you had a good time with the people you worked with, that’s a good day.” ~ Ayelet Zurer

  53. “When I got the episode where Spider-Man meets Aunt May (voiced by Misty Lee), it was another one of those things where I was like, “I can’t believe I have a scene with Aunt May. That’s just amazing to me.” And they drew her a lot younger and hotter then the Aunt May that I remember.” ~ Clark Gregg
  54. “You know I grew up on the Batman movies, and they had some terrific actors in, but you know a lot of the other ones – it wasn’t always the case that you had people the caliber of Jeff Bridges or Robert Downey, so to kind of show up and work with Jeremy Renner or Robert or with Mark Ruffalo, any of them, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, the caliber of people you’re acting with, to me, is really fun. From the first day I started doing scenes with Robert, it’s been one of the funnest experiences I’ve ever had.” ~ Clark Gregg
  55. “Once you play with these scenes and you’re outlining it, again and again, and telling each other the narrative, and telling it to people you know, trying to make sure that the mathematics of the story work, you feel that those are in place, and the actual writing and final draft doesn’t take as long.” ~ Brit Marling
  56. “My acting style and my physicality lends itself to doing things like putting a scene together for a dancing competition.” ~ Chris Klein

  57. “I did do a little research. I went to a couple really fantastic strip clubs with really talented dancers, just in terms of their physical prowess. For the scene, there was a whole dance routine that I had to do, so I worked with a pole dance instructor who helped me choreograph a number for that scene. We broke down the principles of pole dancing, for three days, for an hour a day.” ~ Megalyn Echikunwoke
  58. “It was fun. I’d never done anything like that. I’d never done any bi-sexual or lesbian scenes before, but it was really fun.” ~ Megalyn Echikunwoke
  59. “Emily and I have some funny scenes where we quarrel and it gets quite heated, the mother-daughter relationship. You know, film mothers and daughters adore each other. And some don’t. But how could you not love Emily Blunt? But I think I’m just one of those people who’s always discontented.” ~ Jacki Weaver
  60. “The second political thing I did was to say ‘The Beatles are bigger than Jesus.’ That really broke the scene, I nearly got shot in America for that. It was a big trauma for all the kids that were following us.” ~ John Lennon

  61. “After The Beatles came on the scene everyone started putting on a Liverpudlian accent.” ~ John Lennon
  62. “As a matter of fact, that was a bit of a problem for me at the beginning of my career – the problem of identification. In The Conversation I played a character who was gay, so nobody recognized me from American Graffiti. When I did Apocalypse Now, after Star Wars, I played an intelligence officer of the American army. George Lucas saw the footage I had done and didn’t recognize me until halfway through the scene.” ~ Harrison Ford
  63. “You’re not doing the scene exactly the way it is in the book [The Hunger Games], but the intention of the scene is there.” ~ Nina Jacobson

  64. “I wanted out of the navy so bad in ’45, I faked homo to get a discharge. It didn’t matter that the Germans surrendered, I knew we were heading to Japan and I was done with that scene.” ~ Lenny Bruce
  65. “It’s very tricky to know when to stop. I think there are definitely moments where you feel that is the heart of a scene. When you’re working on the script, you’re looking for a handle on it.” ~ Oliver Parker
