“George Lassos the Moon” from It’s a Wonderful Life. For one thing, my dad cries at the end of this movie every single time without fail. That in itself is special to me. It also just reminds me of the strength that my family has had to stick together over the years through whatever hardship. If anything, tragedy has brought us closer- and I’m incredibly lucky for that.
“George Bailey: What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That’s a pretty good idea. I’ll give you the moon, Mary.
Mary: I’ll take it. Then what?
George Bailey: Well, then you can swallow it, and it’ll all dissolve, see… and the moonbeams would shoot out of your fingers and your toes and the ends of your hair… am I talking too much?
Man on Porch: Yes! Why don’t you kiss her instead of talking her to death?
George Bailey: …You want me to kiss her, huh?
Man on Porch: Ah, youth is wasted on the wrong people.”
