The Quotable Librarian 4

This edition is dedicated to The Librarian TV trilogy

This edition of “The Quotable Librarian” is dedicated to… The Librarian. The TV trilogy, that is. 🙂 In the mid-to-late 2000s, Noah Wyle starred as Flynn Carsen, aka “The Librarian” in a trilogy of fun TV movies. Sure, the movies owe more than a bit to Indiana Jones, but with a male librarian as an action hero lead (rare indeed!), I wholeheartedly enjoy and support this reel librarian’s adventures.


The Librarian: Quest for the Spear (TV, 2004):


Charlene: What makes you think you could be the Librarian?

Flynn: Well, I’ve read a lot of books.

Charlene: Don’t try to be funny. I don’t do funny.

—–

Charlene: What makes you think you could be the Librarian?

Flynn: I know the Dewey Decimal System, Library of Congress, research paper orthodoxy, web searching. I can set up an RSS feed…

Charlene: Everybody knows that. They’re librarians. What makes you think you are The Librarian?

—–

Nicole: [slapping him] Don’t you ever leave my sight again, do you understand?

Flynn: What is this, Slap the Librarian Day?

—–

Nicole: Maybe you made a mistake.
Flynn: I don’t get facts wrong! It’s everything else I screw up.

—–

Flynn: [about to go on his epic quest to save the world] The fate of the world is in my hands? That’s so… sad.


The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines (TV, 2006):


[Jomo hands Flynn a chocolate bar at the airport]

Flynn: For the Hippos?

Jomo: For the Hippos!


The Librarian: The Curse of the Judas Chalice (TV, 2008):


Flynn: I think it only fair to warn you that I am a librarian.

—–

Katie: Maybe some women are ok with the wild and unpredictable lifestyle of dating a librarian, but I’m not.

—–

Flynn: Check. Save the world no matter what.

Charlene: As long as you don’t go over budget.

—–

Flynn: Charlene, how big is the Library?

Charlene: As big as we need it to be.
