Movies I Can Watch Over and Over (with quotes!) (and LINKS!!)

These are just a few off the top of my head (inspired because TNT is playing The Fugitive tonight) and are presented to you in no particular order...

-The Fugitive

Cosmo: Uh, "Richard David Kimble, vascular surgeon..." what the hell is that?
Poole: Somebody that makes more money than you.


Phillipe: If you lay one hand on her you will find it on the ground next to your head.

-The Hunt for Red October

Navigator: What's the matter Commander? You don't like flying, huh? Aw, this is nothing! You should've been with us five, six months ago! Whoa! You talk about puke! We ran into a hailstorm over the Sea of Japan. Everybody's retching their guts out! The pilot shot his lunch all over the windshield, and I barfed on the radio! And it wasn't that lightweight stuff either, it was that chunky industrial weight puke! Here, want a bite?


Stephen: In order to find his equal, an Irishman is FORCED to talk to God. Yes, Father! The Almighty says "don't change the subject, just answer the fookin' question!


Doc Holiday (pretty much every scene he's in is amazing): It appears my hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Apollo 13

Grandma Lovell: Don't you worry. If they could get a washing machine to fly, my Jimmy could land it.

-Jerry Maguire

Rod: I feel for you, man. But a real man wouldn't shoplift the pootie from a single mom.
Jerry: I didn't shoplift the pootie.
[Rod gives him a long Look]
Jerry: All right. I shoplifted the pootie.

There are a lot of others that I love to watch again and again, though some of them, I've found, don't really have a lot of good, catchy quotes.

What are YOUR favorite movies?

A couple of these qualify for me. Also Fight Club "The condom is the glass slipper of our generation.", Secretary "Who's to say that love needs to be soft and gentle?", The Sure Thing "I'm not going to bed with you, I'm going to bed in a bed you happen to be in also." BUt yeah, I could go on and on. Tombstone is, for sure, one of those. I need to get it on DVD so I can wind to Doc's parts more easily. "Darlin' I fear we must change the nature of our relationship."

Pretty In Pink: "I had a great ass. I loved my ass." (Annie Potts)
Christmas Vacation: "Clark! I don't want to spend the holidays DEAD."
Playing by Heart: "Talking about love is like dancing about architecture." (Angelina Jolie before she was ANGELINA JOLIE)
Beautiful Girls: "So you're the little neighborhood Lolita." "So you're the alcoholic high school buddy shit for brains." (Natalie Portman before she was NATALIE PORTMAN)
Almost Famous: "The only true currency in this bankrupt world if what we share with someone else when we're uncool."
Love Actually: "There was more than one lobster present at the birth of Jesus?"
And of course, Jerry: "I'm still sort of moved by your "My word is stronger than oak" thing."

Maybe I should see Beautiful Girls - I LOVE the snarkiness of that comment.

There are a ton of them, aren't there? Great lines that are just PERFECT for where they are.

Pretty much anything Ruby says in Cold Mountain is just right - I loved "Oh, he's so full of manure, that man! We could lay him in the dirt and grow another one just like him."

Also loved Cole in Sixth Sense: "You wiggin' out?"

Then there's Gimli in Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers: "You're gonna have to toss me. Don't tell the elf."

Best LOTR quote (from FOTR):

Strider: "Gentlemen! We do not stop until nightfall."
Pippin: "But what about breakfast?"
Aragorn: "You've already had it."
Pippin: "We've had one, yes. But what about SECOND breakfast?"

Best Fugitive quote:

Gerard: "Newman. What are you doing?"
Newman: "Thinking."
Gerard: "Well you think me up a cup of coffee and one of them chocolate donuts with the sprinkles on top, huh? While you're THINKING."

Best Hunt for Red October quote:

Ryan: "Be careful what you shoot at, Ryan. There are things in here that don't react well to bullets." Yeah, like me! I don't react well to bullets!"

True Lies:

Gibb: "All right, Twinkle Toes, what's your exit strategy?
Tasker: "I'm gonna walk right outta the fromt gate."
Gibb: "Ballsy. Stupid, but ballsy."


Cavalry Sergeant: "How do I know this is your horse?"

(The horse is slobbering all over Paden)

Paden: "Can't you see this horse loves me?"
Sergeant: "Mister, I had girl do that to me once. It didn't make her my wife."

Seems I need to see True Lies again, too.

J from M.I.B: "Get a decorator in here quick, 'cause, DAMN!"

Gomez from Addam's Family: "Damn you, Thing! I HATE it when you STUTTER!!" (Thing is trying to tell Gomez that Morticia is in trouble, and he's so excited that he can't fingerspell smoothly - it CRACKS ME UP).

Falcon, wait until your little man is into movies - most of the modern Disneys - and ALL of the Pixars - have really good quotes in them. Atlantis is a hoot - "Hey! Look at me, I made a bridge, took me, what? Ten, eleven seconds, tops." spoken by Father Guido Sarducci - as is Mulan - "I am the great STONE dragon, off to FETCH Mulan!" done by Eddie Murphy.

This is fun!

I don't have to wait, Mrs. C. - hey, look - now I'm the Fonz and you're Richie Cunningham's mom! :) - he's already into Finding Nemo and the Toy Stories.

Fave Nemo quote? "Sharkbait Ooh Ha Ha!"

Fave Toy Story Quote? "To infinity and beyond!"

Arguably the best movie quote of all time: "You're gonna need a bigger boat!"

BTW, True Lies is the best film Schwarzenegger ever did, IMHO.

7:40 PM  
Blogger Mrs.Chili said...

Oh, no, no, no - best Nemo quote is "och, he lives! HEY DUDE!!" That, and pretty much anything that comes out of Crush's mouth.

Best Toy Story quote? That's a harder one. I like Buzz: You are a sad, strange little man, and you have my pity. Farewell.
Woody: Oh, yeah? Well, good riddance, ya loony.

and "One minute you're defending the whole galaxy, and, suddenly, you find yourself sucking down Darjeeling with Marie Antoinette... and her little sister."

SUCH fun1

Slight misunderstanding, Marion ;)

The quotes I listed are my little man's faves, not mine. He SAYS them! Well, ok, her tries to say them (he's only 19 months, folks), but it's still pretty cute to hear him try to say "ooh ha ha" and "to infinity!"

Some good quotes from The Rock:

Carla: "You like my pigtails?"

Stanley: "Oh yeah. The pigtails are very naughty. Naughty. Naughty!"


Stanley: "Which brings me to another question. When you broke out... let me see if I can get this straight... you went down the incinerator chute on the mine cars, through the tunnels to the power plant, under the steam engine - that was really cool, by the way - and into the cistern
through the intake pipe.

But how in the name of ZEUS' BUTTHOLE did you get out of your cell?!"

Omigod Mrs. C. - how could we possibly have forgotten THIS quote?!:

"If you no help me now, I say f@#k you, Jobu! I do it myself!"

Blogger Mrs.Chili said...

Probably, Falcon, because it's SUCH a part of our everyday lexicon, we don't think of it as a movie quote anymore!

Ooooo! I have some!

For quotes, there are a couple you haven’t mentioned that really stand out.

--“Running Scared” (Billy Crystal; Gregory Hines).
Costanzo: “Let's bust 'em.”
Hughes: “For what?”
Costanzo: “In this neighborhood, a Mercedes is probable cause.”

[Bullets bounce off the windows of the custom car]
Costanzo: “Hey, this bulletproof glass really works!”
Hughes: Thank you, Ace!
[Costanzo tries to roll down the window to shoot at the bad guys]
Costanzo: I can't roll the window down!
Hughes: You asshole, Ace!

--“Jumpin’ Jack Flash”
“I'm a little black woman--in a big silver box!”

“Mick, Mick, Mick! Speak English, Mick!”

--“Matrix, Reloaded”
“I love French wine, like I the French language. I have sampled every language, French is my favorite. Fantastic language. Especially to curse with. Nom de dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperie de connard d'enculé de ta mère. It's like wiping your arse with silk. I love it!”

--“When Harry Met Sally”
“Baby fish mouth! Baby fish mouth!”

Harry: “You did not have great sex with Sheldon.”
Sally: “I did too.”
Harry: “No. You didn't. A Sheldon can do your income taxes. If you need a root canal, Sheldon's your man, but humpin' and pumpin' is not Sheldon's thing. It's the name. 'Do it to me Sheldon, you're an animal Sheldon, ride me big SHEL-DON.'

Also from Jumpin' Jack Flash:

A QUARTER?!? KISS my ass; FIND me in New York for this fuckin' quarter!

one of my many favorite lines from that movie

6:14 PM  
Anonymous nhfalcon said...

and now for a great line from a really cheesy movie:

"Callin' me sir is like puttin an elevator in an outhouse - don't belong."

Any guesses?

10:11 PM  
Blogger Wayfarer said...

That was obscure, but I remember it because, oddly enough, there's a connection between Road House and Jumpin' Jack Flash. It's not the same guy who says the quote, but Chino "Fats Williams appears in both movies (as a homeless guy and Larry the Heavyset Guard, respectively).

My favorite quote from that film: The sign in the bathroom that reads, "Don't eat the big white mint".
