BEST QUOTES FROM IT TAKES TWO

“It Takes Two” (1995) is a family comedy film that is remembered for its heartwarming moments and witty dialogue. While the movie doesn’t have extremely famous or widely quoted lines like some other films, there are a few memorable quotes:

 

Diane (Kirstie Alley):That can’t eat, can’t sleep, reach for the stars over the fence, world series kind of love.

Amanda (Mary-Kate Olsen): “You don’t mess with a kid’s food. Everyone knows that.”

Diane (Kirstie Alley): “Sometimes what you’re looking for is right in front of your face.”

Amanda (Mary-Kate Olsen): “This is the ’90s. The 1990s. And in the 1990s, every child has the right to be loved and nurtured. To be first in their parents’ life, not second.”

Amanda (Mary-Kate Olsen): “I’ve never been part of a family before. What if I mess it up?”

Amanda (played by Mary-Kate Olsen): “No way! No way! You’re not my mother!”

Amanda (again): “You’re the most boring couple in the world. You do nothing but sit in a big house and make money, and you never have any fun.”

Alyssa (played by Ashley Olsen): “Amanda, this is the biggest, hugest, most gigantic mistake in the world!”

Amanda (to Alyssa): “We can’t be twins; I don’t like her!”

These lines capture the essence of the movie, which revolves around the humorous and heartwarming situations that arise when the two girls decide to switch places.
