Plus basically anything
anybody said in 'Red Dawn'

Lines inexplicably missing from AFI's list of top 100 movie quotes:
  • "I want my two dollars."
  • "Demented and sad, but social."
  • "It's the end of the month, they're out of toilet seat covers!"
  • "I can't believe my grandmother actually felt me up."
  • "Number 5 is alive!"

Hmmm ... Do you suppose it's possible I spent a little too much time at the movies during the '80s?

My new favorite is "Why don't you ask the school nurse? I know she's got like five sticks in her drawer." (It must be repeated in a very lispy voice)

So I'm not sick? Except for this terminal disease?

I watched that! And there is one... Just one we were waiting for.. Luke, I am your father. Call me crazy... One of the biggest lines ever... And I found it terribly bothersome that they had 6 lines from one movie. Yes, they were good lines, but lets be a little creative. :P

They missed my favorite:
Elijah Cook Jr. to Bogart in "The Maltese Falcon" - "You're going to be pickin' iron out of your
liver. . . "

Don't forget, "Gee Ricky, I'm really sorry your mom blew-up."

"I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that."

I think the best quote from "Better Off Dead" should be "Wait....This stuff is pure snow!"

Growler said...

You guys... c'mon, this is the classic from The Breakfast Club:

"But face it, you're a Neo-Maxi-Zoom-Dweebie!"

How many of us heard THAT line eighty-million times in the 80's?

Here's a tough one:

My, my, it's so hot! But at least it ain't sticky. I just hate it when it's sticky! But listen to me. A sticky desert is as foolish as an intelligent woman. Oh, I miss Terra.

If you can't place this one here's another clue:

I've never taken a 'lude in my life!

Bstermyster said...

Dan -that is "inconceivable".

My favorite line (could be a song I guess)"Look Richard, Fat Guy in a little suit, Fat guy in a little suit."

Bekkah said...

"They took the BAR! The whole f#*king BAR!!!"

"They FUCK YOU at the drive-thru, okay? They FUCK YOU at the drive-thru! They know you're gonna be miles away before you find out you got fucked! They know you're not gonna turn around and go back, they don't care. So who gets fucked? Ol' Leo Getz! Okay, sure! I don't give a fuck! I'm not eating this tuna, okay?"

One of my favorite '80s lines is from a movie hardly anyone saw, but I think is hilarious - "Blind Date" starring Bruce Willis and Kim Basinger. Neither of them spoke this line. And it's not the line so much as the delivery. John Laroquette played the asshole (as he always does) and rival for Basinger's affections. His dad was the voice of KITT, but his real name escapes me. Anyway, the dad got up in the middle of the night to go shut up the dog who was barking and Laroquette gets up and yells down, "What the hell are you doing?" and his dad goes, "I'm planting corn. What the hell does it look like?" I suggest you rent the movie so you can fully appreciate it. :)
