"I just met a wonderful new man. He's fictional but you can't have everything." Cecilia in The Purple Rose of Cairo.
Her fictional man surely had a great pick-up line to entice her into romance. If popular protagonists were able to leap off the page or screen, what would their lines be? Here are some possibilities:
Superman: "They don't call me the Man of Steel for nothing!"
Captain Kirk: "I will boldy go where no man has gone before."
Hamlet: "To be or not to be - that is the question, but it's not the ONLY question. What are you doing Saturday night?"
Pandora: "Wanna play with my box?"
Medusa: "Whaddya think of my killer looks?"
Batman: "Come check out my pole in the Bat Cave"
Moby Dick: "Enough said. Oh wait, I'm a whale..."
A text from Peter Pan: "Hey baby. I can make you fly ;)"
Aphrodite: "I'm not too shabby on the half shell. I am the goddess of love and horniness after all....just sayin' "
Winnie the Pooh: "How about a taste 'o honey, honey? Oh wait, I'm a teddy bear..."
Big Brother: "I like to watch."
Harry Potter: "I can do wonderful things with my wand."
Tigger: "I'm bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!!!! Oh wait, I'm a tiger who's really a plushie in a little boy's bedroom...."
Thing (Ben Grimm of the Fantastic Four): "Why do you think they call me Thing? Do the descriptions "superhuman endurance" and "stone-like flesh" mean anything to you?"
Human Torch (Johnny Storm of The Fantastic Four): "I'm hot"
Eeyore: "I'm an ass. Don't bother."
