So Yeah, I Quote Movies
« on: December 27, 2017, 12:30:42 PM »
Do you use any movie quotes in your everyday conversation?  Like what?

I find myself making joking reference to Buckaroo Bonsai by saying, "No matter where you go, there you are" and seeing who catches it.  Not many, I'm afraid.  It has entered into popular culture without knowing the reference.

I often use "They can't all be winners can they", from Bad Santa.

Mostly as inside jokes with friends I chat with every day. Whenever someone (usually a newscaster) says something blatantly obvious, one of us will say "No ****ing ****, lady. Does it sound like I'm ordering a pizza?" from Die Hard.

Without any context, my friend and I will crack each other up by saying "Peter, I'm a pediatrician. You're sitting on a fire truck" from Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

I visited the second-to-last Blockbuster store in my city(-ish...it's about 20km out of the way, and the other one is close to 30km) and they had all blu-rays for $2.50AU so I picked up a stack. Nothing stellar but it was nice to patch a few holes, and got me thinking about the sad sad day when physical media finally dies. I enjoy the collection aspect too much.

A co-worker from The Office got me a shirt that reads "I speak fluent movie quotes." I get certain ones stuck and often people in the room don't know what I'm quoting. With my wife, I take deep dives into Disney films. A popular recent one with me is when I'm ready to go somewhere and she's not yet I say, "Look at me. I'm taking the shortcut." while mock walking like Bing Bong in Inside Out. He's good for a few repeaters.
After using a tissue, "I blow a mean nose."
When I feel sore, "Ow, I hurt all over."
When I want to break an awkward silence, "Try the caramel, it's delicious."

Last night when one of the rooms at the festival got too crowded I said “This place is dead anyway.” I also like randomly asking people if they would say I have a plethora of piñatas. So yeah, I quote movies.

The quote I use most frequently I think is "It's a sad and beautiful world", from Down By Law.

I might remember it all differently tomorrow.

The one I found especially useful in 2017 is from Sonny Steele in Electric Horseman:

"Well, maybe them experts ain't so expert."

The Big Lebowski gets quoted the most by me in real life:

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."
"Shut the CINECAST! up, Donny!"
"Donny, you're out of your element!"
"This aggression will not stand, Man."
