Q and A Classics part 2

And so it is that we embark on another adventure of Q and A silliness…  Well, that’s how we started last week anyway, and since this is a continuation, you don’t mind that I’ve stolen the opening line again, do you?  Right?  Yes?  No?  Speak up, I can’t hear you?

Anyway, moving on.

This time we will be pulling out the classics, again, with just a bit of a twist.

Not entirely sure what is going on?  All previous Q and A silliness is conveniently stored here.

Over the years I’ve incorporated a lot of movie dialogue into my day-to-day lingo.  And what better place to pull quotes from than those films considered the best of the best.  (And, yes, this is a direct copy from last week’s post… it’s okay, they are my words and I can steal them if I want to.)

Q: What do you tell someone to do when they ask for your advice on how to woo their true love?
A: “Climb the castle walls. Sweep her off her feet. Carry her off in style.”
– Little John (Phil Harris) – Robin Hood (1973)

Q: What is one of the best insults you could ever hurl?
A: “Impudent piece of crockery.”
– Merlin (Karl Swenson) – The Sword in the Stone (1963)

Q: What do you respond when someone asks where you are going?
A: “Second star to the right and straight on till morning.”
– Peter Pan (Bobby Driscoll) – Peter Pan (1953)

Q: What do you say to someone who is slowly getting on your bad side one too many uttered words at a time?
A: “You are losing my interest, and that is very dangerous.”
– King Haggard (Christopher Lee) – The Last Unicorn (1982)

Q: What do you say to someone who is trying really hard, and failing, to be scary?
A: “Oh my, you are so fierce!”
– The Shadow (Hans Conried) – Faeries (1981)

Q: What do you say to someone asking for advice?
A: “Let your heart guide you. It whispers so listen closely.”
– Littlefoot’s mother (Helen Shaver) – The Land Before Time (1988)

Q: What do you say when someones asks you if you are hurt after tripping over your own feet and stumbling to the ground?
A: “Nope. One of my better landings, bud.”
– Orville (Jim Jordan) – The Rescuers (1977)

Q: What do you say when someone is trying to coax you out for an evening on the town and you don’t feel up to it?
A: “Have ya looked outside? It’s suicide out there!”
– Wilbur (John Candy) – The Rescuers Down Under (1990)

Q: What should you say when someone says you are looking good?
A: “I’m not bad. I’m just drawn that way.”
– Jessica Rabbit (Kathleen Turner) – Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)

Q: What do you say when someone questions your parenting?
A: “He’s with me, ain’t he? And I’ll learn him all I know..”
– Baloo (Phil Harris) – the Jungle Book (1967)

That Phil Harris got got around, didn’t he?  An amazing voice actor, a one-of-a-kind voice…


Do you think my bit of silliness regarding “the classics” will become a classic itself?  You don’t?!  Well, I don’t either it, but it sure was fun to do a second round of them.  Did you see what I did this time?  It was pretty obvious.  All of these movies came out before I was 10 years old and they are the films I grew up watching.  Do you have a list of cartoon movies you grew up watching?  Thanks for playing along with my Friday Q and A silliness again.  Never forget, here there be monsters, and really really really talented voice actors and actresses, a few world class scripts, and some amazing artists too.  These monsters are the stuff dreams are made of.

  1. “Impudent piece of crockery.” … Awesome! One of my absolute favorite scenes from one of my absolute favorite movies! 🙂 I also love Archimedes’ laughing fit after Merlin gets the toy airplane propeller wound up in his beard and the plane goes plummeting to the ground. (“Oh, Man will fly all right. Just like a rock.”) 😀
    I also love this scene:
    Merlin: Archimedes, where… where are we?
    Archimedes the Owl: In a tumbled-down old tower in the most miserable old castle in all Christiandom. That’s where.
    Merlin: Ca… castle?
    Archimedes the Owl: Don’t you even remember the boy?
    Merlin: Boy?
    Sir Ector: [outside, to Kay] Can’t you remember one blasted thing?
    Merlin: [to Archimedes] Now, just a moment…
    Sir Ector: Firm grasp on the lance!
    Merlin: Oh.

    I could probably go on and on with this movie… 😀

    • 😀 It is one of my favorites too. I used to watch it endlessly when I was growing up. I guess I’ve always been fascinated by magic, in all its forms.
