You So Funny


Since everybody else is taking spring break from blogging, I think I will as well. Actually, I’m just too busy with unimportant things — work, church, family — to concentrate on my high-priority to-dos like blogging.

Let’s use the comments area (below) for the following game: List the movie/TV quote (or quotes) that really speak to you. You may laugh every time you hear them. You may find excuses to subtly work them into conversations. (I recently — and quite accidentally — used “R-U-N-N-O-F-T” while making a church announcement. It got a few giggles. I also worked “Festivus” into the bulletin last Christmas season.)

So, comment away. And tune in next week to hear Wednesday say, “Meeting adjourned.”

“No, you say that.”

“Say what?”

“Meeting adjourned.”

“It is?”

“No. You say that.”

“Say what?”

    “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” – Inigo Montoya

    “It’s all ball bearings nowadays!” – Fletch

    These two quotes find their way into my daily conversations all to often.

  4. Coach Says:

    “Why are you so sweaty?”
    “I’ve been practicing…”
    “Oooooooooh, practicing what?”

    “Work, work, work. Hello, boys, did you miss me?”

    “Whah hahpenned?”

  5. Coolhand Says:

    it’s pretty much all napoleon dynamite quotes for me these days:

    “your mom goes to college.”

    “it’s a liger. it’s pretty much my favorite animal. it’s bred for its skills in magic.”

    “what the heck are you even talking about?”

    “i think i’ll build her a cake or something.”

  6. coach Says:

    “What are ya in for, Ben.”
    “Molesting a dead horse.”
    “Well, that’s every man’s right as an American; I’m trying to cut back myself.” (Fletch Lives, Al)

    “You think somebody’s gonna want a roundhouse kick to the head when I’m wearin’ these pants? Fahgeddaboutit.”

  7. Terry Austin Says:

    I’m fighting with the missus over Napoleon Dynamite. I’m dying to see it; she’s listening to her mature adult friends who all say it’s dumb as a bag of hammers.

    Right up my alley.

    By the way, each of the quotes listed — the ones I recognized, anyway — has brought a smile to my face. Can’t believe there haven’t been more OBWAT (O Brother, Where Art Thou) references…

    Oh, George, not the livestock…

    Can I borrow your towel? My car just hit a water buffalo.

  9. Steve Says:

    “60% of the time, it works 100% of the time.” “That doesn’t make sense.”–Anchorman

    “Sun is bad for you. Everything your parents sad is good is really bad. Sun, milk, red meat, college.”–Annie Hall

  10. Terry Austin Says:


    “It’s made with bits of real panther.”

    And basically the entire scene featuring the similies related to the scent of Fantana’s cologne. (I think those are similies. Coach? Mikey?)

  11. Coach Says:

    You really must see Dynamite though I doubt Mikey agrees. Also, for high hilarity, it’s hard to beat anything directed by Christopher Guest. If you’ve never seen Mighty Wind, Waiting for Guffman, and Best in Show, it’s about friggin’ time.

  12. Michael Lasley Says:


  13. Terry Austin Says:

    Saw “A Mighty Wind.” Fun stuff, made even better because the wife hated it so much. The other two are on my lengthy must-see list.

    How does Christopher Guest do such high-quality work with six fingers on his right hand?

    “Do you own gloves?”

    “I rent ’em. Got a lease with an option to buy.”

    “Whew! Ever seen a spleen that large?”

    “Not since breakfast.”

    “James Jestersten! The man’s name is James Jestersten… his name is… Lawrence Felz…”

    “Lawrence Jamison?”

    “YES! YES! Lawrence Jamison! We’re like THIS!”

  14. Coolhand Says:

    ok, here are a couple from my all time favorite comedy:

    “i fart in your general direction.”

    “i though we were an autonomous collective.”

    “african swallows are non-migratory.”

    “build a bridge out of her!”

    and, since chevy chase is popular around here:

    “I’m Dr. Rosenrosen.”

    “Do you have anything other than Mexican food?”

  15. juvenal_urbino Says:

    I’m late to the game, but:

    Pretty much anything Henry Blake said on MASH.

    “What’s wrong with this type?”
    “I triple-spaced it. Kinda looks like free verse, huh?”
    “It looks like a menu.”

    “How about a kiss, boy? What’s wrong with a kiss?”
