You are all familiar with the madness now, right?
And I’m starting to wonder how many more posts I can get out of this idea!
Anyway, here we go again:
Over the years I’ve incorporated an abundance of film dialogue into my day to day lingo. The following is a
useful guide parody I’ve put together of situations you may find yourself in and the some (in)appropriate and/or completely silly responses.
You probably shouldn’t ever use most of these.* However, I’ve used many of them and the rest I’m just waiting on the perfect opportunity.
