Thanks to you people I've gotten nothing done in the past 30 hours. NOTHING. All I've done is read your favorite movie quotes, laugh a lot, and compile a list of movies I have to see again - or for the first time - as soon as possible.
When I mentioned this on FB several of you asked for my list, so here it is:
Hands down, your most quoted movie was The Princess Bride, followed by Labyrinth and Ghostbusters. (I already know those by heart, so they're not on my list.) You guys are either destined to be my best friends or extremely skilled at sucking up. ;)
John and I probably quote Princess Bride the most, too, but we use "It's possible, PIG" and "GENTLY!!" far more than is advisable in polite company. We also like "I hate waiting," said in Inigo's accent, and "*I* am not left-handed!" (I don't know how that one gets used so often, but somehow, it does.)
Sometimes you've got to modify the quote to fit your situation. I like whipping out, "You're right, no HUMAN BEING would [insert activity here] like this."
Also on your Most Quoted List (and which everyone should know by heart):
- Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail ("RUN AWAY!")
- Star Wars ("Laugh it up, Fuzzball!")
- Firefly and Serenity ("I aim to misbehave.")
- The Emperor's New Groove - ("WRONG LEV-AAAAAAHH!")
(I've long felt New Groove is the most underrated of the Disney films, so it thrills me to see so many of you quoting it. Yzma & Kronk are probably the best Villain & Henchman combo Disney has ever created; I could watch them all day. John and I like to break out in "squirrel" from time to time: "Uh, squeakety squeakers squeak 'em.")
I'm sure I missed a lot of other good ones, but you'll just have to go wading through the 900+ comments to make your own list now. ;)
Oh, right, and I guess I should mention who won the give-away, huh? Ha! Ok, the winner is...
Amanda, please e-mail me your mailing address. And to everyone else, thanks for distracting me so very thoroughly.
