"English mother f----r, do you speak it?"
Red Dwarf: "Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast"
Ha ! They might
it's a little sick, but my friends and I always say this when we're told someone has passed away :
"He's dead. And nothing is going to bring him back."
Sollozzo the Turk, "The Godfather"
And of course these classics :
'The cat's in the bag, and the bag's in the river"
"Match me, Sidney !"
"Outside your hotel room ? I haven't been on the Bowery in years" (said when the Bowery in NYC was a haven for drunks and bums, and not the chic bars and stores of today)
"I would hate to take a bite out of you. You're a cookie full of arsenic"
All from "The Sweet Smell of Success" ....as you can guess from my name and avatar, a favorite of mine
Maybe if you included, "Off with ya me lad and be lively!" they would get it?
I wouldn't mind trying some mulled wine, or a flaming rum punch for that matter!
"That was your plan? Get her?"
I use a few others from this movie as well.
Oh yeah-one from a different movie:
"There's some lovely filth over here!"
At work, if some jerk would occasionally say, "I didn't come here to make friends" (which is what Frank Burns said in MASH), I would fire back with Radar O'Reilly's retort, "You've come to the right place".
This is probably not an obscure quote, but what the heck.
About a month or so before my retirement, I would use this one from Office Space:
"The thing is, Bob, it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care".
Ironic, though, because he was NOT dead, and he'd outlive Sollozzo.
I'd call him a sadistic, hippophilic necrophile, but that would be beating a dead horse.
"Remember when you told me to tell you when you were acting rudely and insensitively? Well you're doing it right now."
"That girl standing over there listening and you're talking about 'back doors!"
"It's hard to satirize a guy with shiny boots"
"I can't go buy bread because we haven't got any bread." - Neil Pye
Maybe since I flip it, it makes it a bit obscure...
Baby's dad from Dirty Dancing...
"When I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong..."
but then when I follow it with
"I know you weren't the one who got Penny in trouble"
The person looks at me like "WTF? Who the f^ck is Penny?"
Great movie, great soundtrack with the infinitely quotable song Bad Man from Juicy Bananas.
Managing a pop group's no job for a man!
Guess how many suits I got. Guess how many pair o' shoes. Guess how many ties.
Anyone steps up to me, straight off I nut 'em in the face. Then I bring my heel down on that foot...and break the bone
Put ya seatbealt on. That's...one of my rules.
For some reason I use two from the movie "Hollywood Knights" relatively often and they are both interchangeable.
"That'll put a hem in your dress" (referring to a joint) and "It does have a little wang in it, good though" ("spiked" punch).
"I'm sorry, Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that. "
Only a fool gets killed for a car.
If Woody had gone right to the police, this would never have happened.
OP says not obscure!
I will "endeavour to persevere ."
"My hovercraft is filled with eels."
Similar: First time I went to New York I asked a taxi driver to take me to the Baxter Building. Complete blank. I just wanted to see where he'd take me.
