    Alex, please … just for my enjoyment … could you quote a little bit of Strait jacket?

  5. Alex says:

    1) “…..she must have hidden it her purse…”

    Crawford “discovering” the truth about the murdere, and solving the crime.

    2) “Ever get…, Lucy?”

  6. red says:

    Holy crap. “took an AXE … took an AXE …”

    Also … the subtlety of what we found funny in Joan’s contemplative “she must have hidden it in her purse” moment.. – we were howling, but why on earth did it strike us as so funny?

    Well, there was the Purse moment, and then the obligitory Match On The Record moment. I honestly don’t remember laughing that hard, or that long in my entire life. I thought someone was going to have to call someone.

  24. Movie Quote Madness

    Okay, I’ve seen this at enough different blogs that I now feel compelled to get in on it, too. The First Five Movie/TV Quotes that come into your head (must be from different movies/shows). 1. “I speeek good Eeeenglish! I…

  25. Stevie says:

    Lace! Of course! Thanks Lisa :)

  26. Dave J says:

    I feel some kind of (obviously insane) obligation to correct Skinnydan’s Bill and Ted quote. Here’s the whole exchange, which is seared, seared in my memory.

    MEDIEVAL UGLY DUDE: Put them in the iron maiden.
    TED: Iron Maiden?
    BILL and TED together: Excellent!
    [both do air guitar]
    MEDIEVAL UGLY DUDE: Execute them.
    BILL and TED together: Bogus!

  27. Chai-rista says:

    Red – Love the Willy Wonka quote. It’s one of my favs too.

    “The Lieutenant says to collect all the ammunition.” “Man! What are we supposed to use? Harsh language?”

    “Sir, this radio frequency is for emergencies only.” “No shit lady! Does it sound like I wanted to order a f**’n pizza?!”
    Die Hard

    “You’re not catching us at our best.” “That much is certain.”

    “Sal could you lower that gun please, we’re almost there and I wouldn’t want anything unfortunate to happen now.”

    {singing}”Every now and then I get a little bit terrified I see thefuckinglook in you eyes…”

    The wedding singer in, Old School.

  30. skinnydan says:

    A thousand apologies, DaveJ, for the misquote. That should learn me to keep from messing with the classics of Western Cinema.

    In the future, I shall stick to The Princess Bride, which I have been known to recite in my sleep.

    “You tol’ me to go back to the beginning, so I have.”

  31. red says:


    Do not let Dave J’s autistic memory intimidate you! I am SURE he knew what you meant in the quote, and we ALL knew what you meant …even if it wasn’t word for word. Dave J is a freak of nature when it comes to remembering movie quotes (and entire films, really). Good for him, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t play, too.

    Go forth and flourish!

  32. popskull says:

    “Actually, I look like a can of smashed assholes.”

    Movie Quotes

    So a lot of folks (see here here and here and here and here , for instance, are listing the first five famous quotes from movies that pop into their heads.

  35. Dave J says:

    “Dave J is a freak of nature when it comes to remembering movie quotes (and entire films, really).”

    I shall take that as the compliment I know it is. :-)

  36. red says:

    Dave J:

    Of course it’s a compliment. But I don’t want other readers to feel like they have to back off just because you’re a freak of nature. If the quote is 99% correct, then I consider it 100% correct, if everyone knows what it actually refers to .
