A Short Story and Favorite Lines

Yes! All is right with the world as Chicken Nugget Day was celebrated in all its unnatural glory. Aunt James stopped by my fourth hour to ask if I was going to indulge. Of course, I said yes.

"Okay, stop by my room and we'll go down together."

I said okay, went to the LARC to pick up a new book (I finished A Million Little Pieces--crap), and stopped by her room. Out she comes with the following, "I don't have any money!" So, guess who bought Aunt James lunch today? Yep, I got played.

But, I got to sit down to some fine fake chicken and potatoes, so I'm not complaining.

Just for fun, some of my favorite movie lines (not word for word on all of them, I'm sure), from a short list of some classics (and some crap). Add your own in the comments section, if you like.

Something Wild
"I'm a closet rebel."

"Attempt to be cool."

Better Off Dead
"What a waste of a perfectly good white boy."

Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid
"I was adjusting your breasts."

--"What does FOC mean?"
--"Well, that's when a man and a woman..."
--"No, F.O.C."

"You think you're so smart just 'cause you can read."

Hollywood Shuffle
"You want wine on your hoecake?"

Animal House
"Does this thing talk?"

"The question here isn't whether we took a few liberties with our female party guests--we did."

"Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?"

"Wait 'til Otis sees us! He loves us!"

O Brother, Where Art Thou?
"My hair."

"We're in a tight spot."

"Oh, George, not the livestock!"

"I'm the damn pater familias."

"And stay out of the Woolsworth!"

Raising Arizona
"It ain't Ozzy and Harriet."

"And this here's the divan, for socializin' and spendin' quality time with the family unit."

The Big Lebowski
"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

"Who the fuck are the Knutsons?"

"You want a toe? I can get you a toe...."

"You're not wrong, Walter, you're just an asshole."

"This is not Nam, Smokey, this is bowling. There are rules."

"Fuck it, Dude. Let's go bowling."

--"Where you going, Dude?
--"Home, Donny."
--"Phone's ringing, Dude."
--"Thanks, Donny."

Joe Versus the Volcano
"I have no response to that."

"Brain cloud."

"Are you...Joe?"

"We're gonna need a bigger boat."

"Smile, you son of a bitch!"

Spinal Tap
"This one goes up to eleven."

--"That's pretty. What's it called?"
--"'Lick my Love Pump'."

Pulp Fiction
"I had to crash that Honda, baby."

"It's American. Our names don't mean shit."

"That's a tasty burger."

You are quite the entertainer, Reda. Unfortunately, remembering movie lines is not one of my strengths, and at the end of this long work day all I can bring to mind is a delightfully lewd song lyric that I won't drop on a blog that isn't my own. I know you're proper like that.

So basically, I got nothin for a change. And that is OK. It's like baseball I guess; nothing really happens (but it *could* happen), and it's entertaining nonetheless.

Anon AMVB with the entertaining strike-out response, dropping her blogging average just a tiny nudge. Just keepin it real with a reminder that I too am human.

Monkey not like your movie quotes. You not have any from King Kong or Planet of the Apes!

Monkey Critic,

A gross oversight, for sure. You were invited to add your own. Help a brother out!

Some of my favs:

Super Troopers--
Farva: "I'll just take a liter of cola."
Fast food clerk: [into mike] "Literacola. Do we sell 'literacola'? [to Farva] "What's a 'literacola'? "
Farva: "'Liter' is French for gimme some fuckin' cola."
Ramethorn: "Just order a large, Farva"
Farva: "I don't want a large Farva, I want a goddamn liter of cola."

Napoleon Dynamite--
"Napoleon, you're just mad cause I've been chatting online with hot babes all day. And besides, we both know I'm training to be a cage fighter."

Coming to America--
"Every time I talk about boxing some white boy always gotta pull Rocky Marcianno out his ass."

Oh Brother...--
"I don't want Fop, goddamn it -- I'm a Dapper Dan man."

"What are you doing with that lawnmower blade?"
"I'm fixin' to kill you with it."

"What? Am I funny to you? Funny like a clown?"

ATR said...

That's what I'm talkin' about, Osculator! You go.

Can't believe I left out the "Fop" line. Reminds me of another favorite:

"Well, ain't this place just a geographical oddity? Two weeks from everywhere!"
