Your Favorite Movie Quote....Please.

Last night was Bunko Night for my group. It was so much fun, a couple of new faces who were subbing for our out of town ladies. Our gracious hostess, Susan C., developed the theme of "Pie Night" based on her families recent travels to the Gulf Shores where they ate at a restaurant called "Sweetie Pie's" a couple of times. The menu was certainly labor intensive, but very tasty.

One of my favorite goofy things to do, is quote movies. So on occasion when together with my friends who like to also quote movies we can go to town on Coal Miner's Daughter....Doo done thrown me out daddy, Doo, Doo...that lady grabbed a piece of my hair, bologna sandwiches, come on over here twins, and then there is Steel Magnolia's...classic movie quotes like...you know I love you more than my luggage, Anne Bolin has 6 fingers, I haven't left the house without lycra on these thighs for years...your mama raised you right, take a whack at Ouiser, I wear a size 6, but a 7 feels so good I buy a size 8, laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.

Last night was certainly a movie quoting night at bunko. Thanks to all the non movie quoters for putting up with Denise and I.

Are you a movie quoter? If so what are some of your faves?

I know Steel Magnolias by heart, but here are some others...

"I'm tired of talking about me. Let's talk about you. What do you think about me?" - Beaches

"The loudest silences are those that are filled with everything that has been said." - The Story of Us

Brandi said...

Two of our favorite quotes come from "Brother Bear",

"Don't make me turn this formation around!"

and the entire "I spy" segment - "I spy something green"

We are so simple minded!

Susan said...

Bunco was so much fun last night!

Jerry Maguire - "Shut up. You had me at hello."

I think Fried Green Tomatoes is my favorite all time movie. Here are some of my faves...

"Evelyn Couch: Towanda! Right of Wrong, Queen Beyond Compare!
Ninny Threadgoode: How many of them hormones you takin', honey?"

Ruth: Idgie Threadgoode, you ol' bee charmer, you.

Missy: I hear they've got an assertive training class for southern women.
[looks puzzled]
Missy: Of course that's a contradiction in terms.

[Evelyn is cut off in a parking lot]
Evelyn Couch: Hey! I was waiting for that spot!
Girl #1: Face it, lady, we're younger and faster!
[Evelyn rear-ends the other car six times]
Girl #1: What are you *doing*?
Girl #2: Are you *crazy*?
Evelyn Couch: Face it, girls, I'm older and I have more insurance.

My sister and I started to list all of our family's favorite movie quotes, and (in the midst of our laughter) just realized that it would be easier to just submit the four movies we quote CONSTANTLY:

Raising Arizona
A family favorite! One time I drove from Texas to Virginia to see my folks, and when my dad found out I'd forgotten to pack his favorite movie, he told me to turn around and go get it.

("Ya' gotta' do that, Hi!" & "There's right and there's right and never the twain shall meet." & "He had himself a little ol' askident." & "Gum'ment DO take a bite, don't she?" & many, many more...all said with ridiculously over-emphasized Southern accents)

Monty Python & the Holy Grail
("Ooh, there's some lovely filth down here!" & "There was much rejoicing." & many, many more...all said with ridiculously over-emphasized Cockney accents)

Princess Bride
("Inconceivable!" & many, many more)

Better Off Dead
My parents hated it; we kids loved it...which made quoting it all the more fun!
("Sorry your mom blew up, Ricky." & "KRIIIIS-MAAAAS!" & "It's got raisins in it; you like raisins." & "Two dollars!" & "Would you mind if I date Beth?" & "Love! The international language!" & "You little...MENACE!" and so many more. We recently rented this movie to show Karen's kids, and they didn't find it *nearly* as hilarious as the two old forty-somethings giggling hysterically through the whole thing...)
