What's my Line

I told you readers to be prepared for some weirdness in my blog. Today, for unknown reasons, I'm thinking about movie-lines. I thought I'd share some of my favorites that have been plaguing my mind lately....

Corey Haim and Corey Feldman singing at the beginning of "Dream a Little Dream":

"Oh my life is tough,
Money never seems to be enough.
And if I could have, oh just one thing..."
C. Feldman interrupts, "Holy God I wish you could sing."

The father from that same movie:
"Argh... No milk, no cookies. Nothing!"

The fool, Ellis, from "Die Hard":
"Spreken ze talk?"

Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith from "MIB":
Smith: "Well, it's better to have loved and lost, and all that..."
Jones (cold as ice): "Try it."

This one should need no introduction:
"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

All the times someone says: "Okay then," in "Raising Arizona"

Judd Nelson in "The Breakfast Club":

"Impossible sir, it's in Johnson's underwear."
And, by the way, if anyone knows the punch-line to the joke he tells while crawling through the ceiling, TELL ME. I've tried to figure that out for years, and haven't heard anything that comes close.

Richard Pryor in "See no Evil. Hear no Evil.":
"You mean I'm black? Does dad know?"

Ah yes, there's always Bill and Ted:
"Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K."

Cheech and Chong from... Damn short-term memory loss, I forget which movie this is from:
"I'm with the police."
Cheech: "The Police? I love you guys... 'Don't stand so close to me'."

Emit, the old rancher from "Roadhouse":
"Calling me "sir" is like putting an elevator in an outhouse... It just don't belong."

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in "Mr & Mrs Smith":
Mrs: "Any last words?"
Mr: "The new curtains are hideous."

Marty Feldman in "Yellowbeard":
"My hands'll be wandering towards your throat, Pew, if you don't tell me what it is you overheard."

Eric Idle and John Cleese, from that same movie:
Blind Pew: "Yellowbeard was here."
Clement: "How do you know."
Blind Pew: "Because he sounded about forty-seven. And his clothing gave off the unmistakable fiberous crackling sound of the eighty-percent hessian wool. Whilst the deafening rustling of his beard indicated a length of not... argh" (gets choked off)
Clement: "Cut the prattle, Pew, just give us the facts."

Madeline Kahn and Eric Idle, again from "Yellowbeard":
Mrs Beard: "A plague."
Clement: "Plague!?"
Mrs Beard: "All sudden-like. Lucky I was out."

Humperdink and Westley from "The Princess Bride":
Westley/Roberts: "You mean you wish to surrender to me? Very well, I accept."

So, what movie lines have been roaming your head lately? What's your favorite?

Barbara Streisand from "Funny Girl". "What are ya going to do.....shoot the swans? These lovelies?" Great movie. Why don't you come on over and join us at LAST CAMPFIRE OF THE SUMMER And be sure to at least say "hi" so we know that you're there!

God, I have so many.
The Princess Bride has so many that I can't even begin to cover them all. My most favorite line from that movie is so stupid too.

Vizzini "No more ryhmes now, I mean it!"
Fezzik "Anybody want a peanut?"

But my favorite scene in PB is at the end.

Wesley to Humperdinck
"Wrong! Your ears you keep, and I'll tell you why. so that every shriek of every child at seeing your hideousness will be yours to cherish. Every babe that weeps at your approach, every woman who cries out, "Dear God, what is that thing?" will echo in your perfect ears. That is what "to the pain" means. It means I leave you in anguish, wallowing in freakish misery forever."

"I think you're bluffing."

"It's possible, pig. I might be bluffing. It's conceivable, you miserable vomitous mass, that I'm only lying here because I lack the strength to stand... then again, perhaps I have the strength after all."


Oviously, my problem is that I tend to have entire favorite scenes rather than specific lines. LOL


rm_aranayd replies on 9/3/2006 9:24 pm:
Me too. And PB is FULL of them. I knew a kid named Westley in HS, and I have no idea how many times we said to him: "Nobody would surrender to the Dread Pirate Westley."

Not to mention all the times someone has called me; "Little Captain Dan." from "Yellowbeard"

You know what? I have never seen "Yellowbeard".

I need to I guess. If It's Eric Idle and John Cleese, how
could I not like it?

OHHHH! Also I get lines from "Monty Pythons Meaning of Life" stuck in my head too.
"After dinner mint? It's waffer thin!"


rm_aranayd replies on 9/3/2006 10:05 pm:
You've never seen Yellowbeard!!!? GREAT movie. Madeline Kahn, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Cheech and Chong, and most of the Monty Python cast. The only ones missing are Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder. Check it out.

John Belushi as "Bluto" in Animal House:
"Seven years of college down the drain."

I think I've had entire conversations using only movie quotes. Here are some of my faves. Thanks for asking...

Fletch: Can I borrow your towel for a sec? My car just hit a water buffalo.

Spinal Tap:
Nigel Tufnel: You can't really dust for vomit.

Real Genius:
Chris Knight: Have you ever seen a body like this before in your life?
David Decker: She happens to be my daughter.
Chris Knight: Oh. Then I guess you have.

Old School:
Dammit, Blue was old. That's what old people do. They die.

and of course...
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

Real Genius... there's one I forgot:
"Can you hammer a 6 inch spike through a board with your penis?"
"A girl has to have her standards."
