I love quotes from great scientists, philosophers and even politicians because they give you a little insight into the mind of those people. Literature aside for a second I have to admit many of my favorite quotes are from movies. Many times when my wife and I talk to each other when we are with other people we get strange looks because we have almost created a mini-language based on movie references. There are a few films like “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” that we can probably quote from beginning to end. Here are a few great scenes with those famous quote from movies you might remember as well. Feel free to add any of you favorite quotes from movies, television, or any other source for that matter.

The quotes in the battle between King Arthur and the black night in Monty Python and the Holy Grail are just too classic to pass up in a discussion of movie quotes.

Uncle Ruckus from Boondocks.  (if you are easily offended you might not want to watch this compilation).

The famous “Far better place…” quote from a Tale of Two Cities with Ronald Coleman (I know I’m cheating because it’s about my favorite quote in literature as well because it demonstrates the height of human unselfishness in a selfish world).

“I love the smell of napalm in the morning” from Apocalypse Now.  The problem was victory in Vietnam was just as elusive and short lived as that smell.

The most damaging mentality that still prevails in our culture.   The “greed is good” speech from Gordon Gekko in the film Wall Street.

One of my favorite is from Top Gun Stinger to Maverick

Maverick, you just did an incredibly brave thing. What you should have done was land your plane! You don’t own that plane, the tax payers do! Son, your ego is writing checks your body can’t cash. You’ve been busted, you lost your qualifications

One of my favorite quotes from a film is from Jaws, when Roy Scheider, after getting his first real look at the monstrous thing, turns around and says to Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss:

“We’re gonna need a bigger boat.”

AdLib– Goodfellas is one I never tire of watching. And from Fargo, our favorite quote, for some reason, is the way she says, “He’s a nice man.” Maybe because it’s so Minnesotan– even from Fargo.

Remember “The Goodies”?

There’s something about fast-forward and kazoo music that is total catnip to the Brits. 😮

I don’t understand! For a bunch of liberal, commie, pinkos-with “no sense of humor”-Flush Limpbrain says, “you people” have a lot of fun on the weekend nights. When do you find time to take over the country?

I just read that he’s going to survive and that he didn’t have a heart attack. Too bad.

We’ll get to it during the next commercial, honey. Honest.

Speaking of commercials, check out the portion sizes in this one. No super-sized 44 oz. plastic soda cups here.

Chernynkaya

That is shockingly small! And it’s bracing too!

kesmarn

Well, I suppose if something is small, it had darn well better be bracing.

I seem to be going downhill fast tonight. And the only thing I’m drinking is Pepsi Throwback. Which is actually pretty good, I might add.

LOL!!

Yeah, Yeah, right after you take out the garbage!

Here’s another one of my favorites, and seriously, how handsome is this guy?

Horatio Hornblower and yes, we own the entire series –

Patsy and Edina!!!

I liked this one, too:

This was my guilty pleasure, though it totally jumped the shark and I didn’t quite perk up anymore after the immaculate hawtness that is Lucy Griffiths left:

Yeah, saw the Hornblower series all the way through, as well.

My first “adult” movie:

Remember Sandra Dee??

javaz
Member

Of course I remember Sandra Dee.
Wasn’t she the original Gidget in the movies or was it Tammy.
I loved them Tammy movies.

When you said first adult movie, I thought you meant porn!
LMAO
I’ve never gone to an actual theater to see porn, LMAO, here’s where 67 countries or whatever view this post, but I actually asked a boyfriend to take me to a porn movie at a drive-in in upper Michigan all them years ago.
They showed porn at the drive-in in the UP for the hunters.
LMAO
I’m embarrassed writing this, but I wanted to see a porn film to understand what was the deal with that.
And seriously, what is the deal with that?
It had some piano music to it, and not a whole lot of dialog, but the funniest scene in the movie that I remember was some girls in sexy underwear ordered a pizza, and for whatever reason, there was a toilet in the middle of their living room.
And when the girls had to pee, LMAO, my gosh, a man’s face came up from the toilet to lick their naughty bits.
The plot!
There was no plot, and let me tell you, that after that movie, I never understood the allure.
LMAO
I remember when that boyfriend took me to that movie, and I had to pee, I made us leave because there was no way I’d leave the car in the dead of winter for fear someone might recognize me, but heaven only knows what would be lurking inside that toilet!!!
LMAO

Oh gosh.
I had girlfriends that actually went to the theater and saw Deep Throat, and they said it actually had a plot.
Oh man.

and on that embarrassing note and revealing something that I shouldn’t have most likely, I am logging off and going to bed.
LMAO

Good night, j’avaz. Oh, my Image of you has forever been tarnished (except you at least have been to the UP) 😆 .

Are you and the mister heading into the bedroom now because you’re embarrassed? Or tired? Or……….?

You put that digital video camera down right now, young lady.

Chernynkaya

Javez, you are too funny!!! Why would you be embarrassed? I should have added: Remember when porn was in actual theaters?!

bito
Member

Cher, not really porn, but it was line after line of adult humor. Did you see “Flesh Gordon”?

Chernynkaya
Member

Hiya, Bito! No, missed that one. Worth renting?

bito
Member

Cher, it may seem dated. It was pretty “Korney” but is was ROFLAO 35+ years ago when we where passing “those Funny Cigarettes” around. What was the movie about how pot made the bobbysoxers go crazy and listen to jazz?
Oh! just remembered “Reefer Madness”!!!

Chernynkaya

You mean this?

javaz

Hazel–“Hi Mr. B!”

javaz
Member

I’ve no idea on the Beverly Garland, but I do know the actress.

Oh sheesh, my head will hurt if I try too hard on that one – let me make a wild guess – Paladin?

Chernynkaya

No, It was Decoy. But Paladin was a fantastic series with Richard Boone.
