A quote from a movie you may have used at some point in your everyday life?

Asked by ucme (50031points) April 21st, 2011

Whether as a put down to someone who irritated you, or a friendly gesture between pals, or whatever. Something that just seemed to work well for that particular situation. Even if it’s only been said once, that’ll work.

From “It’s a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” Sally says “I’ve been robbed” when she is in the pumpkin patch… I say that but never knew where it came from until a boyfriend pointed it out….

“What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic thing I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”

S’from Billy Madison, it’s a terrific burn

‘You know what the chain of command is? It’s the chain I go get and beat you with ‘til ya understand who’s in ruttin’ command here. ...’

but there dozens from ‘Firely’ and ‘Serenity’ that I use as well as a number from children’s movies… like ‘You’re a delay fish.’

My husband has used “You amoeba” from Twentieth Century. John Barrymore said the line.

I have used “We should have bought the squirrel” from Rat Race when something goes wrong.

Cheers peeps, good stuff. When the wife has an e-mail i’ll say “Candygram for Mongo!!” I’m only kidding, god she’s going to kill me….twice! :¬(
One I do use from time to time though is this, “Oh i’m sorry, did I break your concentration?” From Pulp Fiction, but only when some fucktard has spoken out of line.

I thought it would be so cool if I could have used, ‘What’s your name?’
(guffaws, jokes,etc.)That’s cool. What’s your first name?’
“up” Billy Jack

filmfann's avatar

When Prince William was born, I was hoping Charles and Diana would name him Up, so they could be refered to as Up, Chuck, and Di.

gmander's avatar

@faye – While it’s funny, it doesn’t work. The next question would almost always be “yours what?”, resulting in ‘Yours Up’, which isn’t funny.

@bkcunningham so true… and not all poetry is good poetry

bkcunningham's avatar

Sorry it is a quote and I forgot to attribute it to the author. But I like it.

Blueroses's avatar

doesn’t matter @bkcunningham my response still holds up. I’ve done some gawd-awful poetry under the influence of wine

Roses are thorny, peaches are creamy, wine is fine and I feel cheesy.

I’m glad this is social. But I bet I get deleted. That has seemed to be the pattern today. lol

“You must be Larry!” I have no idea what this is from, but my dad has always said it as an exclamation of victory (e.g. looking for something then finding it). It’s said in a funny voice, and my brother and I now use it despite having no idea what we’re referencing.
