"I like to watch."
Good for many occasions, or explaining your You Tube addiction.
No one smokes anymore, and cigarettes have been too expensive too long for anyone to offer you theirs, but when watching old crime movies I still get to quote Police Squad:
(Interrogator offers up a pack of cigarettes to suspect)
Suspect: 'Yes...yes it is.'
Or, 'Yes...I know.'
So many from Pulp Fiction. Sometimes a series of lines.
I know how good my coffee is, Jule's
Sorry, baby, I had to crash that Honda
You must have gone over a bump, or something
You watched me wash em
You calling the Wolf?
Be cool, Honeybunny
Ribbed for her pleasure. Eeewwwwww.
Another PF phrase I use regularly that no one ever recognises was picked up from a movie: "That's a bold statement."
Whenever I'm going through a yellow light with someone in the car, I say "We're on a mission from God" followed by "The light was yellow, sir" - both from one of my favorite movies of all time - The Blues Brothers. I know those didn't happen right in a row in the movie, but that's the way I roll.
My daughter and I were in an Aldi's not too long ago and she did something goofy. I turned to here and said "I don't know about you Henry, you may fold under questioning" (kinda sorta Goodfellas). The cashier girl nearly fell on the floor. SHE got it.
"What we have here . . . failure to communicate" (Strother Martin, in Cool Hand Luke).
I got moved to a desk near a window, and today a colleague IM'd me saying "Can you now see the squirrels, and are they merry?"
Yep. I use that one too
"I must've missed Sixty Minutes" used to get rolled out from time to time if something want clear at work. Hans Gruber, I salute you!
Not exact quotes, but close:
"Feed me, Mandrake"
"I don't go into combat with loose change"
"If you don't pay for your sins in church, you do it at home, you do it in the streets"
I manage a golf course, so "That's a peach hon" and "Right in the lumber yard" are recited almost daily.
"Get To Da Choppa"
Up there,up in those trees...
"Nice night for walk"
"Nothing clean right?"
"Nothing clean right."
"I`m not a coward Zod"
"Two or three days ago,I saw a vehicle that could haul that tanker.You wanna get outta here,you talk to me."
Twighlight Zone To Serve Man Episode'It`s a cookbook"
"It is the mealtime"
"There is no time in space"
"That is to say there is no chronology wich can be calibrated"
Simpsons Mcbain character-"Meeting adjourned"
My girlfriend was running a fever the other day and complaining about alternating between feeling warm and feeling chilly. My mind immediately flashed to "He needs more blankets and he needs less blankets!"
I was a career asphalt paving guy. I can't tell you how many times I used that line from Apocalypse Now, substituting asphalt for napalm.
A few from Slap Shot that get referenced, in whole or in part:
"Old time hockey? Like Eddie Shore?"
"Too much, too soon!"
"I'M LISTENING TO THE F**KING SONG!!!"
"She's a lesbian! A lesbian!"
"You do that, you go to the box, you know. Two minutes, by yourself, and...you feel shame, you know. And then you get free."
"The peanut vendors are standing up to them!!!"
"That rabbit's dynamite!"
"You'll have to answer to the Coca Cola Company"
"We have an injured rabbit also"
I say this a lot.
"I'd buy THAT for a dollar!"
One I was reminded of tonight, that I pull out occasionally during pub games when I cock something up, from Goodfellas: "MotherF**KER!!" Sure this doesn't have to be a movie quote, but it's all about that Pesci intonation.
I suspect half the X-ers here have said "you're so money and you don't even know it!" at least a couple of times.
Many, many quotes from Local Hero.
