Just *Some* of my Favorite Movie (Line)s

Standard

Everyone has their favorites.

I have mine; you have yours. Maybe some of mine will remind you of some of yours.

There is no way I can include them all, but these are the ones that I love most of the time, because I remember them so often. I picked the lines I did because I they are more obscure than the more popular lines and I am hopeful that when you read them, you’ll be taken back to your favorite moment in the film. Without further ado, in no particular order:

  1. We’ve come for your daughter, Chuck.
  2. Somebody blows their nose and you want to keep it?
  3. Throw me the idol, I give you the whip.
  4. This town needs an enema!
  5. They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue.
  6. We released ourselves on our own recognizance.
  7. They fuck you at the drive-thru!
  8. This house is clean.
  9. This is U.S. History, I see the globe right there.
  10. I wish we could just run away.
  11. I’ve never seen sugar do that.
  12. There are some who call me … Tim?
  13. I don’t know, Sparks. But I guess I’d say if it is just us… seems like an awful waste of space.
  14. Listen, I haven’t got a lot of time, but if you love your country, if you’re a patriot, you’ll listen and you’ll listen hard. I’ve got to get to a phone and you gotta make a call.
  15. How much you wanna bet I can throw this football over them mountains?
  16. Once you have a man with no legs, you never go back, baby.
  17. I think this boy’s cheese has done slid off his cracker.
  18. Eunice? There’s a person named Eunice?
  19. But why is the rum gone?
  20. My problem is that it’s 2 A.M. My problem is I’m asleep. I’m on a tour bus with eight stinkin’ men. Rule number one: Don’t propose to a girl on a bus, you got that? Rule number two: Don’t tell her it’s because you had a bad dream.
  21. That’s the beauty of it. I wake up one day, I don’t know where I’m gonna’ end up or who I’m gonna’ meet.
  22. The time for honoring yourself will soon be at an end.
  23. Well, you can’t never let anything happen to him. Then nothing would ever happen to him. Not much fun for little Harpo.
  24. You killed the car.
  25. There’s your Chinaman, Fred.
  26. Well, man from health department say he find rat pellet in pastry but I say no, is big chocolate sprinkle, but he shut store down. So we clean up, make big cookie for to bring customers back.
  27. You, ‘Flock of Seagulls,’ you know why we’re here? Why don’t you tell my man Vincent where you got the shit hid at?
  28. I love my dead gay son.
  29. There’s a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours.
  30. And this lamp… that’s all I need.
  31. Here’s to swimming with bow-legged women.
  32. Put a sock in it, boy, or else you’ll be outta here like shit through a goose.
  33. Mother Nature just pissed her pantsuit!
  34. The only way somebody would get that would be to chop off my – finger. Let’s go down to the garden and find out what’s buried there.
  35. Young, young man. Did anyone ever tell you you look like a young prince out of the ‘Arabian Nights’?

This list isn’t exhaustive of my favorite movies, but they are all favorites. My favorite on the list? Impossible to decide. But the one that makes my whole family including the surly teenager laugh is “What’s Up Doc?” You can’t go wrong, ever with that one. And the clothes? Oh! To die for.

Thank you.
