You’ll never guess what this week’s Q and A theme is. Nope. Never. Wait, you already figured it out? Boo. Well, fine, be that way. I’m going to post it anyway.
(All other Q and A silliness can be found here.)
As a reminder: The Q’s are life situations you may find yourself in, and the A’s are the corresponding quotes from movies that you could considering using in those situations if you were mad like me. But, I am a professional Jester, so take that into consideration before trying them on your own.

I loved this! A very appropriate Q & A for me today… Thanks so much for your guest post. It will publish on 9/16, as a “follow-up” for the re-blogged post that publishes tomorrow.
(Yes, I am using both of them!) 😉
Hooray, thanks for the reblog, and was happy to put the other post together for you. I’ll reblog it to the kingdom on the 16th to try and encourage some of the kingdomites to head over and check it out.
Have a wonderful time on your honeymoon!!
It’s supposed to rain the whole time, but I’m sure we will find something to do. 😉
Thanks for encouraging your readers to click on over to my corner!
You won’t even notice the rain down there. And it certainly won’t keep you from enjoying the beach or the water… It might even make it slightly more enjoyable because you won’t have to worry about slathering on as much sunscreen. 😉
Well done, and full of chuckles. Here’s one back at you. “Striker, listen, and you listen close: flying a plane is no different than riding a bicycle, just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.”
I almost used that one!!
I also almost used all of the “I picked a bad day to quit…” quotes too.
Glad you found some chuckles here! It’s good to have you back.

Hanging Lady: Nervous?
Ted Striker: Yes.
Hanging Lady: First time?
Ted Striker: No, I’ve been nervous lots of times.
This could go on all day. 🙂
Surely, you must be joking?
I am joking. And don’t call me Shirley. 🙂
Um.. [JD], do you like movies about gladiators?
Ha, ha, ha!! Such a classic movie.
It’s true. Been awhile since I last watched it. I might try to convince the queen that she’ll enjoy it so we can watch it this weekend. A decision I’ll regret afterwards when she rightfully accuses me of knowing that she definitely wasn’t going to enjoy it. Still… could be worth it. 😉
I find myself quoting Lloyd Bridges as Steve McCroskey quite often, especially during work hours. 😀
Picked a bad day to quit smoking, drinking, huffing paint, sniffing glue, snorting amphetamines, …?
AKA Mondays and Fridays
Friday’s I’m usually on such a cloud nine it’s like I hadn’t picked the day to quit any of the above…
I’m doing a one hour layover at Dallas while en route to Toronto. Very apropos!
Everyone is out and about traveling these days! Safe journeys!
Have to agree with everyone else – “Looks like I picke the worng week to quit…” can and has been used as a response to just about everything.
So is the theme “Actors the majority of whom are probably past their prime”?
That’s a very good pick up on a hidden sub-theme. Nicely done.
Easy! Side story- but I first saw Airplane! when I was really young and for some reason it terrified me. The scene where someone just keeps spitting out eggs…oh my – I was just so scared that if I got sick, I was going to start hurling up eggs. I’ve only seen it once since then, but it’s funny what things scare you when you’re little.
Oh no, the terrible egg spitting cold!! 😉 Yeah, I know I was terrified of some pretty silly stuff when I was younger (well, I’m still terrified of some silly things), and it is funny what scared us then.
So, do you have like every line to every movie memorized?
I have no idea what the lines are to Runaway Bride.
So, all but one movie then?
Okay, okay… You got me. I also have no idea what the lines are to that movie, you know, the one Sacha Baron Cohen did after Borat? Funny yellow outfit? I don’t even know what the name of it is…
But, yeah, everything else.
I always use the “Picked the wrong week to quit” quote when things start going screwy. Which means I use them alot.
I am plead the fifth. (read: I use it almost every day for that exact reason)
I plead the fifth is another I use daily 😉
Great minds, as they say…
The force be with you
These aren’t the Star Wars quotes you are looking for… Move along…
I already did a Star Wars Q and A… but, there are 6 movies… I guess I could come up with a few more quotes. 😉
Live long and prosper?
Haven’t done Star Trek. So, requested, so shall it be. To boldly Q and A where none have Q and A’d before.
Oh no! lol why did I choose a si fi movie…I’m so not a si fi person ahaha!
You have time to suggest something else, or I’m blaming the Star Trek post on you. 😛
*Red wry smile* “I’ve been known to procure things from time to time.”
In other words – consider it done. 😉
woowhoo. bring it!
