I was musing in the car today about whether you could do this meme with song lyrics. I think Badger would be the one to try it out, don't you?
I wan't going to do this, because I clearly don't have enough readers (yet?), but I've just been having so much fun with it at everyone else's place that I decided to go ahead and find some quotes!
Rules, no googling, yada yada yada.
Here we go! Some quotes from a few of my favorite movies:
#1: Snappy snapped this one up! It's "Good Will Hunting." I love this movie, and particularly this part!
#2: secrethandshake and I like the same movies! For now, I'll just put her down for "Dead Poets Society," but she figured out lots more too!
C: Damn it Neil, the name is Nuwanda.
Excrement! That's what I think of Mr. J. Evans Pritchard! We're not laying pipe! We're talking about poetry. How can you describe poetry like American Bandstand? "I like Byron, I give him a 42 but I can't dance to it!"
#3: I couldn't believe this one sat here so long. I know this movie by heart. Erin (who stopped by from Jen's place) knows it's "Say Anything." Yes, I am another woman in love with John Cusack. But I love him more than you do.
Hey my brother, can I borrow a copy of your "Hey Soul Classics"?
J-Man: No, my brother, you have to go buy your own.
OR ALSO... AGAIN
I got a question. If you guys know so much about women, how come you're here at like the Gas 'n' Sip on a Saturday night completely alone drinking beers with no women anywhere?
J: By choice, man.
#4: Jen of Jenontheedge and Eco Women: Protectors of the Planet! knows that this is what Harry says to Sally on New Year's Eve at the end of "When Harry Met Sally." The last sentence is just perfect.
#5: MomBabe, if "Singin' in the Rain" is your favorite movie, you might just be my new best friend! I think it is one of the best movies ever made, despite that weird long "Gotta Dance" section near the end...
By the way, MomBabe has the prettiest blogs! I obviously need her help with design and decor... Fleeting Moments and The Bingham Diaries
#6: Blackbird and secrethandshake got "Hairspray." This is from the 2007 musical version, which is a new favorite of the *WHOLE* family.
But, all the kids are battin' up their hair now, hon.
You're no help.
It's ratting, daddy. And our first lady, Jacqueline Kennedy does it!
I don't believe that.
What do you mean you don't believe that? How else would it look that way?
I believe that it is naturally stiff.
#7: Blackbird and secrethandshake also know this one from "Shakespeare in Love." A beautiful quote.
#8: Poppy Buxom, good one! It's from "Clueless," my favorite adaptation of Jane Austen's "Emma." She even identified the teacher as Wallace Shawn (also seen in another of my favorites, "The Princess Bride").
#9: Erin and I must be the same age. Because she knows this one, too! It's from "Swingers." The funniest part is when they are playing the NHL videogame, because I watched The Hubby and his roommate play this game all through senior year of college! Takes me back every time!
Do you think we'll get there by midnight?
Baby, we're going to be up five hundy by midnight!
Vegas baby! Vegas!
#10: Guider got "Strictly Ballroom!" This is a hilarious Aussie film (redundant, right?) that I have loved for a long time -- and now, if you've gotten into the Dance shows on TV, it's even more fun to watch!
Yeah, well an Open Amateur has no right to dance non-Federation steps, but you did, didn't you?
But that's different.
*How* is it different? You're just like the rest of them! You think you're different, but you're not, because you're just, you're just really scared! You're really scared to give someone new a go, because you think, you know, they might just be better than you are! Well, you're just pathetic, and you're gutless. You're a gutless wonder! Vivir con miedo, es como vivir a medias!
Bonus #1: Tuvaluans K and Oldest (hi, guys!) know that this is from "Back to the Future." In fact, it is the very last line.
Bonus #2: Elizabeth M. knows these classic lines from "This Is Spinal Tap." Seriously, folks, see it (again). Awesome. Someday I will have to write a post about the time I saw Spinal Tap play live at the Warfield in San Francisco. So Meta!!!
It's very pretty.
Yeah, I've been fooling around with it for a few months.
It's a bit of a departure from what you normally play.
It's part of a trilogy, a musical trilogy I'm working on in D minor which is the saddest of all keys, I find. People weep instantly when they hear it, and I don't know why.
It's very nice.
You know, just simple lines intertwining, you know, very much like - I'm really influenced by Mozart and Bach, and it's sort of in between those, really. It's like a Mach piece, really. It's sort of...
What do you call this?
Well, this piece is called "Lick My Love Pump".
And they had no hole in the center of the record.
It would teeter crazily on the little spindle.
No, you had to provide it yourself. They were still good records. Good product.
If you punched a hole in them, you'd have a good time.
Bonus #4: Blackbird and secrethandshake have good taste in movies, like this one: "School of Rock." Ladies, we should get together for movie night!
Who? No. Come on. What? You, Shortstop.
Katie, what was that thing you were playing today, the big thing?
Ok. This is a bass guitar. And it's the exact same thing but instead of playing it like this you tip it on the side... cello, you got a bass.
