QUOTE OF THE YEAR


Jake has a purdy mouth. And out of that purdy mouth sometimes comes some strange word formations. Now, Jake's been saying weird stuff for eons, but only Jake Watch has chronicled these verbal events, common sense eclipses if you will, and discussed them at quite unnecessary length. But which quote is the finest example of Gyllenbabble? Come with me now, as we journey back over the past year and look at some top notch 'Quote of the Week' entries....(que: mists of time)

"...so it’s based in a real reality..." Feb 1 2007
Zodiac; it's really real, you know.

“He asked if I’d remembered to bring a good pair of Velcro gloves. I was devastated because I hadn’t, but promised him I would get a pair immediately." Jan 2 2007
Jake had also forgotten the tent pegs, Calor gas stove and baked beans.

"You should record my voice really fast so that you can slow it down and I can sound really weird." Dec 11 2006
Yeah, 'cos only then would you sound weird.

"Hey I was in (row) 15C the other day... It’s been the best experience I’ve had flying. Air Canada’s just been terrific." Nov 20 2006
Jake 'Easily Pleased' Gyllenhaal.

"I think that I'd like for [the audience] to walk away with the metaphor for what that movie is about, and that's the metaphor". Sept 4 2006
He was talking about October Sky and rockets. Makes perfect sense with the context, doesn't it?

"My dog has changed my life". Aug 21 2006
But where the hell is Boo now?

"There are three things I'll never do again - eat Play-Doh, run with scissors and keep my ice-cube collection in a shoebox" July 3 2006
They've made Play-doh edible now, Jake, so it's all good.

"Voting is sexy. I think everybody should do it, and I want everybody to do it with me." May 15 2006
I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is Prophecy Girl's favourite quote.

"It's funny to me that people find other people getting coffee really interesting, or walking their dog in the dog park." April 3rd 2006
Ahahahaha! Shut up.

Oh what a great compilation. How funny is he, i mean really, he is so intellegent (well we think he is!) but can come across sounding so silly. The scarey thing is that i always understand exactly what hes trying to say! Ive been wondering latley how i can get all those funny sayings/interviews he has onto a cd so i can listen to it in my car when ive had a bad day!

I think all this speculation on the fate of Boo Radley Gyllenhaal is unnecessary. Boo is just being true to the character of his namesake! After all, the original Boo never came out of his house except under cover of darkness, and that was to fight evil and leave gifts for precocious children, remember? ;)

He bears watching.

I LOVE the Gyllenbabble. It's one of my favorite things about Jake, even if it causes my eyes to cross at times.

And I'm with PG on the voting quote. I'll do it with you anytime, Jake...anytime at all.

BTW, this is Veeveevee here. What's up with Blogger not accepting my password??? Grrrr.

" 'My dog has changed my life'. Aug 21 2006
But where the hell is Boo now?"

I'm REALLY worried about Boo....
:/

I think Jake is having privacy issues and has decided that Boo and Atticus have had too much exposure from paps. When he left for Morocco and put them in the kennel with their au pair they became very demanding and difficult as a result of their celebrity status. Stephen and Naomi have thrown their hands up in despair.You know you're bad when your grandparents don't even want you to visit!
BTW: Jake on Letterman repeats tonight.

one gyllenhaalic said:..I'm with s4m985...I (get) JAKES SENSE OF HUMOUR... and totally understand exactly what he is trying to say...Pretty darn intelligent...if you want my opinion...I like it when he drinks goat's blood, and watches pigs get slaughtered...and gags when he changes Romona's organic diapers...made out of banannas and straw...and describes (jarheads) as little white plants grown in the middle east...that look like a jar....he's just soooo funny....I would like a cd like that too...because it lightens my load when I think of what he says...

smurfette said...

how to choose, how to choose? they're all brilliant for different reasons-- some are hilarious as standalone WTF quotes, some i love simply because jake is so endearing in them, some are special because they're so applicable to us, and some-- ok, to be honest, ALL are made GOLDEN, and infinitely more incredible by britpop's captions/commentary.

LMAO at where the hell is boo now and ahahaha shut up. and for that reason... i'll have to go with the last one as my favorite, cuz i'm a fan of irony in print =P. sans-BPB postscript, though, maybe #2 cuz i heart earnest/gullible jake so damn much =P.

sandra ramsey said...

Gyllenhaalic says....I am with s4m905...I (GET) EVERYTHING JAKE SAYS... I really like it when he says he drinks goats blood ...and gags when he changes Romona's organic diapers, made out of banannas and straw...and likes to watch pigs get slaughtered...I like to do all those things too...He likes to mess with peoples heads...very intelligent if you want my opinion...If he is WIERD...then SO AM I....HE IS HILARIOUS...I too need a c/d with all these funny sayings on them..

"I think that I'd like for [the audience] to walk away with the metaphor for what that movie is about, and that's the metaphor".

Come again Jake??

sandra ramsey said...

OOOPS... I have never blogged before...and didn't think the first one went through...SANDRA RAMSEY IS NOT MY REAL NAME...IT'S MY SLAVE NAME...MY REAL NAME IS HOLDEN CAULFIELD...

Katie said...

I think this will always be my favourite:

"There are three things I'll never do again - eat Play-Doh, run with scissors and keep my ice-cube collection in a shoebox"

but I do like the rave about sitting in 15C and the 'record my voice really quickly'.

I love it when I think Jake's playing with us - and we're definitely up for it. Bring it on, Jake!

Anonymous said...

I get a feeling Jake IS playing with us 90% of the time. And seriously, every one of those quotes are so...in the moment...I honestly cannot pick a favorite. They are seriously enriched by your perspective, BPB!

cina 4:48 LMAO!!!!!!

cina said...

The finest examples of Gyllenbabble in my opinion are as follows.

The one I posted earlier:
"I think that I'd like for [the audience] to walk away with the metaphor for what that movie is about, and that's the metaphor".

And Katie's choice:
"There are three things I'll never do again - eat Play-Doh, run with scissors and keep my ice-cube collection in a shoebox"

Marina said...

Yay! :)

"It's funny to me that people find other people getting coffee really interesting, or walking their dog in the dog park."

Poor Jake doesn't even know we find him just standing up or sitting down fascinating?

cina said...

^^ LOL!

True dat.

Agnes said...

"...so it’s based in a real reality..."

Jake I am so glad you told me that or I would get really confused LOL!!!!

The play-doh one is hysterical. Where is it from?

Anonymous said...

If you can overlook where these pics are (and ignore the Reese innuendo)....there are new pics of Jake in a fight....with his bike...

I just wanted to bring this up since european interviews tend to be more detailed and personal than north american. But since it is in German, it would be ignored by most people:

http://www.gyllenhaal.de/gyllenhaalnews/news2007/0341a198fb0f8ff03/xl002.jpg

In this interview he clearly states he doesn't want a new relationship - and not with Reese.

-> "ich will keine neue Beziehung - auch nicht mit Reese"

So unless he's lying, at least he did state that.

It is also stated in the interview that his heart is not taken by Reese. The interviewer then goes on to say "good for us so we can still keep dreaming about him." The interviewer then goes on to say good for Maggie since he can babysit for her.

ROFL at the bike pics! Thank you for pointing those out. Yet another WTF moment from our dear boy.

And to the last anon, I think there might be people over in the forums interested in the information you have to share. :)

anonymous blonde said...

my personal favorite is "a real reality" (as opposed to a faux reality).

actually, I'm pretty sure I know what he means.

Anonymous said...

In those new bike pictures he looks like he is putting the bike in the trunk of a car, not having trouble as the paps wrote.

Anonymous said...

I saw those bike pictures and they really bothered me. It looks like they were taken at someone's home. The paps are perfectly capable of stalking people, and I think that is horrible! Walking/cycling/driving down a public street, entering or exiting a restaurant, club, store, building etc. is one thing. Fair game. But going to a residence, any residence,and stalking someone is way wrong. Hope people will go to the comments section of x17 and say something about it.

Funny,when Jake was interviewed by E! for Zodiac, they asked if there was anyone special and he said no. Now this German interview where he allegedly says no specifically to the Reese rumors.
Maybe Reese isn't looking for a relationship, either. (When I got divorced, I went thru a grieving process, even tho he was a skunk! It took almost a year to feel like even being social!)So maybe neither one of them is wants a serious relationship and they are just FWB. Sometimes people like to hang out together. And if sex IS part of the equation, I'm certainly in no position to judge.

It's pretty obvious that Heath, Penelope Cruz, George Clooney, Jake, and a lot of other celebs do not feel like they have to answer, or explain, or be accountable to the media just bcz some ass asks a personal question and gets into their private business. I say good on them. So what if he lied. There's lying and then there's lying.

cfitz said...

God!
He is just precious.

Do you all love it when he gets tickled at himself and giggles.

Love it!

"My dog has changed my Life" And I echo ncwoman: Where the hell is Boo??
