Top Ten: My Quotable Movies

So, I am taking up mamacita’s challenge. Here are my most quoted movies. It is a pretty revealing list. In my defense, these are movies I watched a lot in high school and college and kind of became common reference points among my group of friends. I think only two or three would not fit into that category. So, here we go:

  1. Raising Arizona “You ate SAND?”; “I don’t know. Maybe it was Utah”, and the entire movie. My vote for most quotable move ever made.
  2. Better Off Dead “Gee, I’m sorry your mom blew up, Ricky”
  3. Wet Hot American Summer “So that’s where my priorities are right now. Sex. Specifically with Andy and not with you.”
  4. Star Wars “I used to bullseye womp rats with my T-16 back home…they’re no bigger than 2 meters.”
  5. Rushmore “O, my God! I wrote a hit play!”
  6. Real Genius “So, you’ll hammer later.”
  7. Office Space “I wouldn’t say I’ve been missing it, Bob”
  8. War Games I’d piss on a spark plug if I thought it’d do any good!”
  9. Blues Brothers “Pier One Imports. They got everything.”, “We’re on a mission from God!”
  10. Airplane “Joey, have you ever been to a Turkish prison?”

I did not include any movies by John Hughes because it is just plain embarrassing how many lines I know from Pretty in Pink.
