Sometimes…well, sometimes there’s a movie that, when you see it is on TV, you just have to sit down and watch it no matter what point in the film it is at. For Caroline and I, one of those movies is Top Gun.
I know everybody who loves this movie wants to be Maverick…
…or Ice Man (and let’s be honest, Ice Man is the better pilot)…
Oh, and our dog has even started doing that move ^^^
You’re probably saying, “She’s a dog. She’s just biting.” Nope, she does it one time to emphasize after a bark.
“I learned from watching you, DAD!!!”
Anyway, I get it. Mav and Ice are the hot shot pilots. They’re good looking and slick. But, if I am being honest with myself, I’m Goose…
Sarcastic, ruggedly if not conventionally handsome, and the photographer of the crew (if we needed more similarities).
This movie is quoted ALL THE TIME in our house. There are just so many quotes to choose from…
And this guy – “I WANT SOME BUTTS!”
I feel like I actually might be understating how much Caroline and I love this movie. We went to a screening of this movie on the deck of an aircraft carrier with a Q&A/introduction by the RIO (Radio Intercept Officer) who was a technical advisor on the film – yea, basically the inspiration for Goose.
Oh, and we also high five like this…all the time!
Plus, ya know…DANGER ZONE!
So, if you’re looking for a photographer who will be your wing man anytime, give me a flyby! Oh, and drop your favorite quotes from the movie in the comment section.
