A “Memento” Quote To Tattoo On Your Body


“Hey, guess what time it is: it’s beer o’clock, and I’m buying.”

-Teddy (Joe Pantoliano), from Memento

I haven’t seen Memento for a few years, but after remembering this quote a few days ago (I joked with one of my students about the time being “beer o’clock”), I checked out more from the movie and realized how much I liked it. I really dug it when it came out in 2001 and I remember seeing it a few times in Germany and back in Colorado. Really original plot and concept, good acting, great lines. Anyhow, good stuff.

I’m going to put this on the front page of Cinematic Attic, mainly to remind you to check out our other pages with shorter posts. We have the Movie Log, Quotes, and Beer pages, and all are great and waiting for you!


This is actually the same advice I give to my students regarding cell phone use in class, but I don’t think any of them have tattooed it on their arms yet.

Have a good one!
