QUOTES

Oda Mae sent me a link and I have spent wahhhhhy too much time on this today, but I love reading everyone's favorite movie quotes.

Around our house, we have some tried and true quotes. I like when I am explaining something complicated to my husband and he brushes me off with Jack Burton's "I know, there's a problem with your face." When the dog does something cute, we fake cry and say, "Ah luve him so much." When someone says something illogical, we always say that electrolytes are what plants crave. Yesterday I was so mad at someone that this came out of my mouth: "I hated her, so much... it-it- the f - it -flam - flames. Flames, on the side of my face, breathing-breathl- heaving breaths. Heaving breath..." Ha. I could go on and on.

But lately the thing that has cracked me up the most is when my husband makes our life part of FAIL blog. The other day we were in a loud place and he was telling me about an upcoming movie, and I misunderstood the first sentence he said so none of the rest of the plot made any sense. The whole thing got so muddled, and finally my husband just goes, "Conversation FAIL" and I cracked up.

I love quoting things, per se.

I think So I Married an Ax Murderer is the most quoted movie in the AF Household.

The most versatile quotes coming from the part of the movie where the father is discussing world domination and Col. Sanders.

"Och, I hate the Colonel with his wee beady eyes! You're gonna eat my chicken!"

Useful in situations where there is fried chicken involved or when we're talking about worldwide evil cabals.

AFW, that's a good one too! Sometimes my husband says he's gonna cry himself to sleep on his giant pillow. Heh. Oh, and I like saying, "Excuse me, there's been a mistake, I ordered the LARGE coffee."

We're big time movie quoters in this household. Most of our quotes come from the second Austin Powers movie (and mostly things Dr. Evil said). The husband quotes lines from Full Metal Jacket once in a while, no big surprise there.

Oh, happy new year btw!

I would say Forrest Gump, for whatever reason, and Wedding Singer, for obvious reasons, are quoted most at our house.

"And then, Ah was ruh-ning..."
And, any time we have shrimp it's suh-rimp and we name off as many suh-rimp dishes as we can.

In the wedding singer, if we deal with a crazy person, it's "Hey, psycho. Why don't you take off my Van Halen t-shirt b/4 you jinx the band and they break up?!"

"Again, something I could have benefited from knowing YESTERDAY." (very popular at Casa W).

We lurve our movies!!

Thank God you posted, Sarah...I was worrying maybe you and your husband were trapped under something heavy. :)

Whenever our kids are running around outside we'll yell, "Ruuuun, Forrest!"

LMAO!

And The Wedding Singer is such a classic! When AFG is sick, we ask him how dead he is (the Princess Bride). When I'm being really bitchy, he'll tell me, "As you wish..."

When he's being a dork, I'll tell him, "No, I didn't ask what you did for a living. I asked who you are," from Anger Management.

I know I've spent too much time in cartoon movie land. My favorite that I've actually been heard quoting in public is from Kung Fu Panda "Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift. That's why they call it the present."

When I was in Afghanistan, about 90% of my team's communication was in quotes from either Anchorman or Napoleon Dynamite. I had to watch both movies before I could effectively communicate.

This one gang kept wanting me to join because I'm pretty good with a bow-staff.

I'll try to stop now.

Okay, one more. When we see someone we really hate, AFG will copy the baby in Meet the Fockers, "Ass...Hooooole"

I could totally do this all day...

I realize this doesn't work for everyone, but I'm fond of quoting from Monty Python's Holy Grail.

There's a million.
"Bring out your dead!"
"I'm feeling better"
"Its only a flesh wound".
"What is the air speed velocity of a swallow?"
"She's a witch!"
"Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time."(said in a French accent).

"Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. "

"Help! Help! I'm bein' repressed!"

"We live in a bloody swamp. We need all the land we can get. "

But my favorite, naturally, is "There are those who call me.........Tim!"

Lately, one of our frequent movie quotes is from the second Austin Powers movie (I think I haven't seen it): "We do not gnaw on our kitty" (complete with accent). Ian has a stuffed tiger, and shoves its face in his mouth when we hand it to him. I think he's kissing it. :)

Monty Python, Anchorman (another I haven't seen, but my husband has), MST3K, Simpsons, Futurama, and some others I can't remember right now tend to sneak into our conversations.

We do Monty Python--"I'm feeling much bett-ah!"--and So I Married an Axe Murderer. I love "flames on the side of my face". But the family favorite is The Princess Bride. There's a quotation for every situation. Every. Single. One.
