(Psst...more movie review chewiness over at MovieGrenade for you to ignore - Earl)
I'm an obsessive quoter of movies that I love. Some love it (Slyde), some fear it (my family), some begrudgingly accept it (Gia), but most don't even know that I am doing it. I once even had a brief fling with a much, much younger waitress that started on a drunken evening that, I think, had me using some of Jack Nicholson's lines to Helen Hunt from As Good as It Gets on her. I even feel a little bad about that one. Because I didn't really mean any of it. So much for being a good guy, eh?
Anyway, I thought it would be fun (after that painfully embarrassing admission above) to list out some of my favorite movie quotes from some of my current films. Do you have any that you A) use in your daily routine or B) wish you could use in your daily routine?
Frank Costello: Who let this IRA motherfucker in my bar?
[the man looks startled]
Frank Costello: [laughs] Only kidding. How's your mother?
Man in Costello's Bar: Oh... I'm afraid she's on her way out.
Frank Costello: [walks away] We all are. Act accordingly.
[smiles and his straightens tie.]
The 40-Year Old Virgin
Cal: Wanna know how I know you're gay? Because you like Coldplay.
Will Munny: It's a hell of a thing, killing a man. Take away all he's got and all he's ever gonna have.
The Schofield Kid: Yeah, well, I guess he had it coming.
Will Munny: We all got it coming, kid.
Burke: It was a bad call, Ripley. It was a bad call.
[after witnessing a murder through a window]
Paul Hackett: I'll probably get blamed for that.
The Big Lebowski
[being forced into a limousine]
The Dude: Hey, careful, man, there's a beverage here!
The Princess Bride
[Vizzini has just cut the rope The Dread Pirate Roberts is climbing up]
Vizzini: HE DIDN'T FALL? INCONCEIVABLE.
Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Dazed and Confused
Slater: Behind every good man there is a woman, and that woman was Martha Washington, man, and everyday George would come home, she would have a big fat bowl waiting for him, man, when he come in the door, man, she was a hip, hip, hip lady, man.
Field of Dreams
Shoeless Joe Jackson: Ty Cobb wanted to play, but none of us could stand the son-of-a-bitch when we were alive, so we told him to stick it!
Peter Gibbons: Doesn't it bother you that you have to get up in the morning and you have to put on a bunch of pieces of flair?
Joanna: Yeah, but I'm not about to go in and start taking money from the register.
Peter Gibbons: Well, maybe you should. You know, the Nazis had pieces of flair that, but they made the Jews wear them.
Mr. Blonde: Are you gonna bark all day, little doggy, or are you gonna bite?
[His girlfriend says they don't have time for sex now]
Mike McDermott: I'll be really quick. You won't feel a thing.
Constance: Why do you eat that stuff? There's no food in your food.
The Wicker Man
Sergeant Howie: [Upon seeing the wicker man] Oh God! Oh Jesus Christ!
(I use this one an awful lot in my daily life - Earl)
Todd Wolfhouse: Steve's got the eye of the Jew.
Big Trouble in Little China
Jack Burton: Like I told my last wife, I said, "Honey, I never drive faster than I can see, and besides... it's all in the reflexes."
[Albert walks back and forth with a John Wayne swagger]
Albert: No good?
Armand: Actually, it's perfect. I just never realized John Wayne walked like that.
Crash Davis: I have been known on occasion to howl at the moon.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Dr. Gonzo: I hate to say this, but this place is getting to me. I think I'm getting the fear.
Raoul Duke: Look, there's two women fucking a polar bear!
Dr. Gonzo: Don't tell me these things. Not now man.
Bo Catlett: Only this time it ain't no John Wayne and Dean Martin shooting bad guys in "El Dorado."
Chili Palmer: That was "Rio Bravo." Robert Mitchum played the drunk in "El Dorado." Dean Martin played the drunk in "Rio Bravo." Basically, it was the same part. Now John Wayne, he did the same in both. He played John Wayne.
Bo Catlett: Man, I can't wait for you to be dead.
[while Marie de Salle is singing "Baby I Love Your Way"]
Rob Gordon: I used to hate this song.
Barry, Dick: Yeah.
Rob Gordon: Now I kinda like it.
Barry, Dick: Yeah.
A League of Their Own
[Jimmy has just signed a baseball for a little boy]
Little Boy: [reading] Avoid the clap, Jimmy Dugan.
Jimmy Dugan: Hey, that's good advice!
There are a million more that I use every day, I just can't remember them right now. I've now decided to tag everyone on my blogroll with the same task. Gimme some of your favorite movie quotes and avoid the clap! - Earl
