Trollop with a Question #6

Mondays have begun to come faster for me since I started this little feature. Because suddenly—hey, it's Monday again! Last week, I asked what you'd do if you found (a decidedly odd) amount of money in your pocket.

Today, I'm asking you something totally serious and very important to me. (Kidding.) What is your quest? No. Not that. What is your favorite color? No, wait. that's not it either. What is your favorite movie line? The one you go to. The one your friends know you for. The one you can even do the way the actor or actress does in the movie.

We're waiting!


P.S. Remember, anyone who answered last week should drop me a note at msalisontyler at yahoo dot com so I can send you a prize. And CJ—you are my big winner! I'll be in touch.

"You have 13 hours in which to solve the labyrinth before your baby brother becomes one of us... forever."

And many, many other lines from that movie (Labyrinth). When I typed the quote above, I wondered how that can possibly come up very often, but apparently I make it work because I quote it frequently.

It's weird, I end up quoting TV far more often than my favorite movies. (Eddie Murphy's "The Fifth Beatle" SNL skit and vintage Bosom Buddies episodes still find their way into my conversations, even though they haven't aired since I was a kid.) This may be because my favorite movies fall into weird categories: totally warped French romcom (THE GIRL ON THE BRIDGE), heartwarming hockey story (MIRACLE), completely uncategorizable documentary-screwball comedy-melodrama-homoerotic softcore with a musical sequence (BEEFCAKE). On the other hand, if somebody asks me about hockey rules, I will usually start going into the Quebecois goaltender's dialogue in SLAP SHOT without any advance warning. ("You go to da box for two minutes, ya know, by yourself and you...feel shame...then you get free.") Other than that, it's sort of situational.

Also, I'll be curious to see how often guys quote CADDYSHACK this week...people say it's the male go-to, and I've always wondered if that's true...

My very first go to line is "I've got a bad feeling about this." frome very Star Wars movie ever.

Or its got to be "This was supposed to be a no rough stuff kind of deal" from Fargo

Pretty sure this will be a common one. From The Princess Bride. "You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means."

CJ Lemire typed my thoughts. (Just this once, I hope.)

Plus, for more specific situations, I'm likely to use various lines from Tremors (the original) and Blazing Saddles.

Ha! I have two...

"I am invincible" from Goldeneye. It has to be delivered with a flexing of the the biceps and a bad Russian accent.

The other one is
"Ashley, Oh Ashley" said in my best Southern bell accent and a fluttering of the eye lids.

Mine is from the movie From Dusk 'til Dawn.

"Sometimes life really sticks it in and breaks it off."

The line fits so many situations, I used it yesterday, in fact. (But I do a very poor George Clooney impersonation)

Miz Angell said...

So many, but one that my friends always expect from me is from Monty Python.

"No one expects the Spanish inquisition."

That and from Moulin Rouge

" The show must go on, Satine. We're creatures of the underworld. We can't afford to love. "

Miz Angell said...

Oh, and just tweeting with the lovely Sommer, I realized that while I don't use these lines anymore, these are some I used to use (back when I was younger...)

You want to fuck with the eagles, you have to learn to fly. - Heathers

How very. - Heathers

That was way harsh. - Clueless

Life after death is as improbable as sex after marriage! - Clue
