What film is the most fun to quote from?

1.   Greg Brock
Depends on the company you're keeping, I guess. I can't exactly throw out Blazing Saddles quotes to anybody. Airplane and Lebowski would be my best two.

Oh, so many. I can't take them all.

Friday. I don't love the movie, but I do love to quote it. Of course, it only works when saying it, not typing, because the cadences are just as, if not more funny than the actual lines.

Lebowski hands down. Though I got big laughs quoting "Happy Gilmore" the other day. I was trying to get a lobster into a togo box and I pulled out the "that's your home, are you too good for your home?" line.

I've been using Idiocracy a lot lately, but people mostly stare blankly at me since hardly anyone saw it.

Today at Fox, the studio treated us to a BBQ and a screening of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.I would like to repay their kindness by saying that the movie was really really terrible.


The climactic action sequence was a guy staring intently at a cloud.

6 - My favorite line from "Idiocracy" is unprintable here, but suffice to say that is an awesome movie.

7 - The line involves reading and the other "f" word.

There were some excellent lines in "Let's Go to Prison", which is a severely underrated movie in my opinion. It has some plot problems but the acting and lines are fantastic. Plus, it features one of the sweeter gay romances ever put on film.

1. Pulp Fiction
a. Let's not start (blank)ing each others (blanks) just yet
b. Giving a (blank) a foot massage and sticking your tongue in the holiest of holies ain't the same (blank)ing thing, ain't in no ballpark neither.

Yeah, definitely depends on the company you keep.

7 8 my favorite Idiocracy lines are said by the Carl's Jr. food dispensing machine. I also wish I could quote the hospital computer pictures. Every once in a while, I'll tell my friends that Brawndo is what plants crave.

The Princess Bride is endlessly quotable. I get great mileage out of "You keep saying that word... I don't think it means what you think it means."

Kicking And Screaming. Not the lousy 2005 Will Ferrell Kicking And Screaming, but the great 1995 Noah Baumbach Kicking And Screaming. Endlessly quotable.

Idiocracy's not a bad alternative, however. "With two 'D's' as he says, for a double dose of this pimping."

Han Solo in any star wars movie, ever since I read this article
I can't stop quoting him.

One quote each from my five most quotable films:

"Oh man, I just shot Marvin in the face!"

"What I used to able to pass off as a bad summer could now potentially turn into a bad life."

"There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours."

"What's your nationality?" "I'm a drunkard."

"Behind every good man there is a woman, and that woman was Martha Washington, man. Everyday when George would come home from working in the fields, she'd have a big fat bowl waiting for him, man. She was a hip, hip lady."

Hard to top Pulp Fiction. Stripes and Office Space would be right there for comedies.
2007-06-16 22:33:30
17.   Benaiah
15 - Pulp Fiction, Kicking and Screaming (this is the only quote in my facebook profile), ?, Animal House (?) and Half Baked. Where is that quote about breasts from?

17 First two right, the others, no dice.

Five more excellent quotable movies:

"Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed! But I do say no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh, depending on the breaks."

"I'd never sleep with a player hitting under .250. Not unless he had a lot of RBIs and was a great glove man up the middle."

"At least they left you the Creedence."

"Next time I say let's go someplace like Bolivia, let's go someplace like Bolivia."

"No, sir. I didn't see you playing with your dolls again."

1. Dr. Strangelove

2. Bull Durham

3. Lebowski

4. Butch & Sundance

5. Spaceballs (I gotta admit, this last one took me a while...)

If forced to choose, I'd probably go with Lebowski. I can quote more from Billy Madison, Office Space, Dumb and Dumber, 40-Y-O Virgin, Caddyshack, Anchorman, etc., but those don't have the same cool factor as quoting from Lebowski.

"My uncle used to drive a Ho Runner"

I hardly ever go a day without quoting the gospel according to Spinal Tap.
2007-06-17 22:21:57
24.   Benaiah
This is a tad risque but it has been stuck in my head all day:

"Wave of the future dude, 100% digital"
"I still (bleep) off manually"
"Of course you do, dude."

I can quote Lebowski chapter and verse. "Phone's ringing, dude" is banned from my vicinity because I heard it too much in college (it is just too easy).

For my money, the funniest moment in film history is when the Dude sneaks over to the pad of paper to see what Jackie Treehorn wrote down. Just perfect.

In a perfect world John Goodman would have gotten a best supporting actor statue for Walter Sobecheck.

"4000 years of beautiful history from Moses to Sandy Koufax, you're (bleep) right I'm living in the past."

Clueless and any Austin Powers Film can be quoted to just about any type of company.
