There are too many movies that I quote. Sometimes, it seems as if I don’t even have my own words. A lot of times, I’ll quote from a movie and can’t remember which movie it is. Some quotes that I use all the time are as follows:
“Some day, this war’s gonna end.” from Apocalypse Now. I usually replace “war” with any other noun that’s germane to the conversation.
“You’re killing me, Smalls.” from The Sandlot. I’ve only ever seen this movie once and I remember nothing about it, but for some reason, that line stuck with me and I say it all the time. For a long time, I had no idea what movie this was from and had to look it up.
Boring, Sidney, boring.” and “What about the farewell drugs?” from Sid And Nancy.
“You owe me for one jelly donut.”, “They’re payin’ for it, you eat it.” and “Too beaucoup.” from Full Metal Jacket, along with about a bazillion other lines from this movie. It’s infinitely quotable.
“I’m not here to make a record, ya dumb cracker. We ain’t one-at-a-timin’ here, we mass communicatin’!”, “She done R-U-N-N-O-F-T” and “But we’re kin!” from O Brother, Where Art Thou? This movie also has about a billion lines that are quotable.
“Phone’s ringin’, Dude.” and “This is what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass, Larry!” from The Big Lebowski, among many, many others.
“Let me tell you about my mother.”, “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die. ” and “Wake up, time to die!” from Blade Runner.
“It’s like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.” and “This one goes to eleven.” from This is Spinal Tap.
“This [noun] is dildos”, “Brutal.”, “We are here to make coffee metal. We will make everything metal.” and “food libraries” when referring to a grocery store from Metalocalypse.
Any of the make-believe words Anthony Burgess thought up in the book A Clockwork Orange and Kubrick eloquently put on screen, i.e., “gulliver” (head), “droog” (friend), “bog” (god), “glazzies” (eyes), “yarbles” (balls), “cal” (crap), “prestoopnick” (criminal), “cutter” (money), “pee and em” (dad and mom), etc.
“Don’t touch that! Your primitive intellect wouldn’t understand alloys and compositions and things with… molecular structures.”, “Well, hello, Mister Fancypants.” and “We can take ’em… with science!” from Army of Darkness.
“You see, in this world there’s two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.” from The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly.
“These were not the hoof prints of your average God-fearing junkie. It was too savage. Too aggressive.” among others from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
“In the quiet words of the Virgin Mary… come again?” and “D’ya like dags?” from Snatch.
“What’s your function in life?” from Survive Style 5+ said in Vinnie Jones’ very Cockney accent.
“Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken.” from Fight Club, but you could just as easily pick any random line from that movie and odds are pretty good that I say it all the time.
And there are still a million Simpsons quotes rolling around in my brainpan.
I could go on forever, but these are a few of my favorite movies, lines from which have made their way into my vernacular. They are a part of me and help make up who I am.
