Q and A Redemption

This week’s theme is fairly evident, if you haven’t figured it out just based on the post title, it’s all quotes from The Shawshank Redemption.  This series was thrown together based on a request from Behind the Mask of Abuse.

Do you have a movie you’d like me include in these Q and A sessions?  Or a theme?  Or a specific actor?  Let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can put together for you.

(All previous Q and A iterations are 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.

Sorry, I had snow on the brain when I put this together.  The coming fall means the coming of snowbaord season.  And it was such a hot late summer that I can’t wait to cool off in the snow this winter.  Shawshank is one of my favorite movies and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t already included it in a previous Q and A post.  I use several of these quotes on a weekly basis.  How about you?  Here there be innocents and one guilty person, along with several monsters.  Thanks for playing along.

  1. An eminently quotable film!

    Since snow is on your brain, how about Ski Patrol – a movie i’ve had the misfortune to see most of.
    Though, I think you’d be hard pressed to come up with a page of good quotes from it.

    • Ski Patrol!! Consider it done… and if I can’t come up with a full set of quotes, I’ll just throw in some classic pictures…. rocket skis…. mice colony… oh me, oh my.

  2. What do you say to your coworker after your boss asks you to work late? “The colossal prick even managed to sound magnanimous.” What does your boss say to your coworker when you slip out at 5 o’clock anyway? “Man up and vanished like a fart in the wind!”

  3. Good job! This is one of those movies I can definitely watch over and over again, now I’ll think of the skiing references too 🙂
