Movie Quotes

“Jack talked about how music is essentially twelve notes between any octave. Twelve notes and the octave repeats. It’s the same story told over and over, forever. All any artist can offer the world is how they see those twelve notes. That’s it. He loved how you see them.” – Bobby 
“Hey!” – Jackson
“What?” – Ally
“I just wanted to take another look at you.” – Jackson

“Look, talent comes everywhere, but having something to say and a way to say it so that people listen to it, that’s a whole other bag. And unless you get out and you try to do it, you’ll never know. that’s just the truth. And there’s one reason we’re supposed to be here is to say something so people want to hear. So you got to grab it, and you don’t apologize, and you don’t worry about why they’re listening, or how long they’re going to be listening for, you just tell them what you want to say. Don’t you understand what I’m trying to tell you?” – Jackson

“I’m off the deep end. Watch as I dive in. I never meet the ground. Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us. We’re far from the shallow now.” – Ally

Movie Quotes

“Music, you know, true music – not just rock n roll – it chooses you. It lives in your car, or alone listening to your headphones, you know, with the cast scenic bridges and angelic choirs in your brain. It’s a place apart from the vast, benign lap of America.” – Lester Bangs 
“I didn’t invent the rainy day, man, I just own the best umbrella.” – Dennis Hope

“I have to go home.” – William Miller
“You are home.” – Penny Lane

“So, you’re talking to Ben Fong-Torres, right? Here’s what you do. Tell him it’s a think piece about a mid level band struggling with their own limitations in the harsh face of stardom. [Chuckles] He’ll wet himself.” – Lester Bangs

Walk the Line stars Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon, Ginnifer Goodwin, Robert Patrick, Dallas Roberts, Dan John Miller, Larry Bagby, Shelby Lynne, Tyler Hilton, Shooter Jennings, Waylon Payne, Rhoda Griffis and James Keach.

Walk the Line is the autobiographical story of Johnny Cash (Joaquin Phoenix) and his rise to fame in the 1950’s. A chronicle of Cash’s life, from his early childhood days growing up on an Arkansas cotton farm where he struggles under the scorn of his father (Robert Patrick) to his rise with Sun Records in Memphis, where he recorded alongside Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins.

While growing up in the Great Depression era, Johnny takes an interest in music. Anxious to leave Arkansas, when he was old enough he joined the Air Force and got stationed in Germany. While there, he buys his first guitar in a German music store and starts writing his own music.

After the Air Force, he returns home and proposes to Vivian (Ginnifer Goodwin) and they move to Memphis, Tennessee where Johnny works as an unsuccessful  door-to-door salesman who so desperately wants to be a musician and practices with his band consisting of Johnny and two mechanics who also play guitar and bass. They get together weekly to practice gospel songs.

While working as a salesman, he was walking when he hears music coming from an alley and he follows it to a small building with the back door open. He peeks in the door and sees Elvis Presley recording a song. The door is quickly shut but in that moment he discovers a man named Sam Phillips (Dallas Rogers) who can help him pursue his dreams.

Phillips agrees to give him and his band a tryout. Stopping them half way through their song, Phillips doesn’t believe the song touches Johnny and encourages him to play a song that would make a difference if he had only one shot at singing a song. He slowly starts playing a song he wrote while in the Air Force and Phillips loves it and they wind up making an entire record.

Soon after, Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Two started playing on a short multi-city tour, promoting his songs. This is where he meets the already famous and beautiful June Carter (Reese Witherspoon). Trouble ensues as the tours get longer and his feelings for June get stronger. However, Cash’s volatile lifestyle and drug addiction threatens to keep them apart.

Movie Quotes

“If you was hit by a truck and you was lying out there in the gutter dying, and you had time to sing *one* song. Huh? One song that people would remember before you’re dirt. One song that would let God know how you felt about your time here on Earth. One song that would sum you up. You tellin’ me that’s the song you’d sing? That same Jimmy Davis tune we hear on the radio all day, about your peace within, and how it’s real, and how you’re gonna shout it? Or… would you sing somethin’ different. Somethin’ real. Somethin’ *you* felt. Cause I’m telling you right now, that’s the kind of song people want to hear. That’s the kind of song that truly saves people. It ain’t got nothin’ to do with believin’ in God, Mr. Cash. It has to do with believin’ in yourself.” – Sam Phillips 
“You can’t wear black. It looks like you’re going to a funeral.” – Vivian Cash
“Maybe I am…” – Johnny Cash

“Y’all can’t walk no line!” – June Carter

“Get yourselves a pine box, boys. Nobody follows The Killer!” – Jerry Lee Lewis
