Might I be so bold as to interject my personal favorite reaction to any dumb idea I hear? “Are you impaired in some way I haven’t noticed yet?” It’s from the movie “Michael” and I will get back to you on who the actress was.
Pansy Millbanks (Jean Stapleton )
Egad! I was wrong! These things happen. I’m just the jester after all – the teller of tales, not the knower of things.
We forgive you… it’s not like you’e a cat-lover. Erm….
Strike 2!!!! Uh oh, I better watch my steps from here on out.
No one is perfect. It’s just some of us are less imperfect than others…. :S
Nicely done there, very nicely done. 😛
Andie McDowell, right? Four Weddings and Funeral and a bunch of other things! Michael is a great movie – I expect I’ll be pulling something from it eventually. Thanks!
“Having a luck dragon with you is the only way to go on a quest” for Neverending Q & As.
That is an excellent point! 😀
Friday is now complete, I had time to read this and get in touch with movie lingo! Great job as usual. The awesome Friday tradition continues.
And on and on. I think next week maybe I’ll go with a theme of quotes, and not identify what movies the quotes are from and see who gets the theme right… and maybe who can identify all the movies too…
That is a winning idea, it would be fun to do and interactive. Great tug of war as well. I think it will be hard for people to go against the fictional characters so I think I am going to give it a go. They have lived off the imaginations of unsuspecting children long enough.:-)
It has seemed like the ones I’ve been able to read so far (crazy hectic week; hence the total slacking on reading/commenting on what everyone else has been doing – sorry), so I too will probably write something in support of ending these traditions… Just have to wait and see how the next couple days go.
Hey, totally unconnected to this post … sorry … but did you see this page?
I am doing this … it’s going to be fun! Doing the memoir. And some of the free projects! 🙂
Looks very cool! Thanks for the link. I’m going to have to spend some time going through it all and seeing what I want to do.
Tsk, tsk, I haven’t even gotten on to any themes yet! Soon there will be superhero movie Q and A’s, and western movie Q and A’s, and baseball movie Q and A’s, and… Well, you get the point, because you’ve already been following the madness here, and here, and here, and here. Once I’ve completely exhausted movies, I can just pick up a few books and send the series that way. Once I’m done with books I can listen to a few more albums and send the series that way. By then I’ll have watched a whole new slew of movies to have pulled dialogue from and the cycle will being again.
Now, where are my sharks with the laser beams attached to their heads?
(Dr. Evil, Austin Powers, as if you didn’t already know.)
Over the years I’ve incorporated an abundance of film dialogue into my day to day lingo. The following is a
useful guideparody I’ve put together of situations you may find yourself in and thesome (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 for the perfect opportunity.
