Best Father’s Day Quotes from Movies

In the 2006 movie Flicka, Katie McLoughlin, played by Alison Lohman said to her father Rob McLoughlin, played Tim McGraw, “There will always be a few people who have the courage to love what is untamed inside us. One of those men is my father.”

In the 1999 movie October Sky, Homer Hickman, played by Jake Gyllenhaal says to his father, John Hickman, played by Chris Cooper, “Dad I may not be the best, but I come to believe that I got it in me to be somebody in this world. And it’s not because I’m so different from you either. It’s just because I’m the same. I mean, I can be just as hard-headed and just as tough. I only hope I can be as good a man as you.”

In the 2006 movie Superman Returns, Clark Kent/Superman, played by Brandon Routh, was talking to his son Jason as he slept, “You will make my strength your own. You will see my life through your eyes as your life will be seen through mine. The son becomes the father and the father becomes the son.”

In the 1998 movie Lion King: Simba’s Pride, Simba, voiced by Matthew Broderick told his daughter Kiara, voiced by Neve Campbell, “I’m telling you this because I don’t want to lose you. If something happened to you, I don’t know what I’d do.”

Father of the Bride is pretty much the gold standard of father/daughter bonding movies. Steve Martin’s character, George Banks, has an entire movie worth of quotable lines. One of my favorites, though, really sums up fatherhood! “Well, that’s the thing about life, is the surprises, the little things that sneak up on you and grab hold of you.”

Of these movies, Father of the Bride is definitely my favorite, but I really love the quote from October Sky. It’s so inspiring, and the perfect sentiment to share with a son to a dad.

  1. Father’s Day is such a great moment in our life to cherish & words cant easily express the love you have for your dad & these are some wonderful quotes from movies that makes you feel so good. The quote from Flicka is my favorite among these.

  2. I am unfortunately living the last half of the “Lion King” quote, as my Dad passed away in 2002, and I still miss him and struggle with Father’s Day every year. There are many days I wish I could call him or go visit him. I can’t think of a quote at the moment, but a song that is really meaningful for me is “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” by Justin Moore. If you or anyone would like to listen to the words and watch the music video, it’s here: https://youtu.be/55GAUgjpDQA

  3. These quotes would be a nice addition to the card that you’re sending your dad this Father’s Day! I really think it’s a nice gesture. Quotes are always very heartwarming and inspiring!

  4. It’s not really a “Father-Child” quote, but I use it with my children: From Kung Fu Panda – “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.”

  5. Anything from the Lion King is quotable. My favorite moments are watching my hubby and our son watching some Disney from our era! Thanks for the quotes!
