George Jung Quotes

On this page you can find an overview of inspiring quotes from the movie Blow. Most of these quotes come from the real George Jung, but we also collected some nice quotes from his father Fred Jung.

Quote #1

Our first quote is actually based on the last lines of the movie Blow. These words will stick into everybody’s mind who watched the movie. You see George dreaming about meeting his daughter again while the following words are told by a background voice:

George Jung – So in the end, was it worth it? Jesus Christ. How irreparably changed my life has become. It’s always the last day of summer and I’ve been left out in the cold with no door to get back in. I’ll grant you I’ve had more than my share of poignant moments. Life passes most people by while they’re making grand plans for it. Throughout my lifetime, I’ve left pieces of my heart here and there. And now, there’s almost not enough to stay alive. But I force a smile, knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent. There are no more white horses or pretty ladies at my door.

Quote #2

The following quote is also told by George while he is in prison. He is taping an audio casette to say farewell to his dying father. This quote originates from an old Irish blessing:

George Jung – May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face. And may the wings of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars.

Quote #3

Fred Jung, George’s father plays an important role in his life. George turns often to his father for advice. On one of these occasions, Fred tries to explain to George how people attach too much importance to money…

Fred Jung – Money isn’t real, George. It doesn’t matter. It only seems like it does.
Young George Jung – Are you gonna tell Mom that?
Fred Jung – Yeah, that’s gonna be a tricky one.

Quote #4

George – So, what’d I tell ya, Derek?
Derek – It’s great, but what am I supposed to do with it?
George – Sell it.
Derek – Jesus Christ, George, I don’t see you for two years and you show up on my doorstep with 110 pounds of blow.
George – Just fucking sell it, Derek.
Derek – Okay, but it’s going to take me a year.

Derek – 36 hours, 36 hours, I can’t believe we got rid of it in 36 hours.
George – I think it’s fair to say you underestimated the market, Derek.
Derek – Right on. It’s going to take us longer to count it than it did to sell it.
