Top 5 Tuesdays (T5T) Remembers The Catchphrases


It's every filmmakers dream to create a movie that is beloved and remembered for generations. And probably right below that is to create a movie catchphrase that weaves its way into pop culture only to be repeated ad nauseum.

At boring parties I will randomly throw out a movie catchphrase and if anyone bites, I'm hanging with that person for the rest of the night. I have a long list floating around in the brain. But here are my top 5, in no particular order.

1. "What's my name? Fuck you, that's my name." Glengarry Glen Ross

2. "How about a nice greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray?" Weird Science

3. "Baby, we're going to be up five hundy by midnight." Swingers

4. "Look eye. Always look eye." The Karate Kid

5. "You're going to need a bigger boat." Jaws

Hey Elgringo....It's "Get 'em a body bag!"

Fletch said...

"We're gonna need you to go ahead and come in on Saturday..." - Office Space

Hell, who am I kidding, I could do mine entirely of Office Space lines. Then again, it's also possible that the majority of my spoken phrases are just mashed-up movie quotes, so that makes it really hard to pick any. I'm like the Cable Guy, minus the crappy job, lisp and stalker tendencies.

Piper said...

Fox,

I love that you quoted Billy Madison three times. I always quote Farley with "I'll turn this bus around and that'll end your precious field trip."

Or "if peeing your pants is cool, then I'm Miles Davis."

Or a little Happy Gilmour "you eat shit for breakfast?"

Fletch,

I used to work with a guy exactly like that guy.

A few more to add to the batch.

Give me some sugar - Army Of Darkness

I was born a poor black child - The Jerk

He hates these cans! - The Jerk

Garrett said...

"Bocce Balls!!" - Splash

Piper said...

Another favorite between my son and I. It's from some kid's baseball movie. "Funky butt lovin'"

Anonymous said...

"Sweep the leg"

"I dunno. A little paint, a few flowers, couple of throw pillows."

"These go to eleven"

"I said, no, but that's a real nice ski mask"

"I've been to one world's fair, a picnic and a rodeo, and that's the stupidest thing I ever heard come over a set of earphones"

This is fun, Piper. Wonder how quickly people identify the movies.

Ray said...

"You still owe me another month's rent, so I suggest you do some tongue exercises by Friday." - KINGPIN

"Let's not even talk about it. I pulled outta her way early on that one." - KINGPIN

"I'd rather mop the floors at a peepshow." - KINGPPIN

"Believe me, as a bowler, I know ... that right now, your bladder feels like an overstuffed vacuum cleaner bag, and your butt feels like an about to explode bratwurst" - KINGPIN

"Half the dresses you own you need two hairdos to wear!" - KINGPIN

Sue me ... I love KINGPIN.

Fox said...

Piper,

I could go on and on with the Billy Madison - just like Ray did with the Kingpin.

Oh, ok...

"Hey Billy, who would you rather bone: Meg Ryan or Jack Nicholson?"

"Jack Nicholson now, or in 1974?"

"1974"

"Meg Ryan"

--------

"Mortal Kombat is the greatest game ever."

"I disagree. It's a very good game, but Donkey Kong is the best game ever".

"Donkey Kong SUCKS!"

"YOU SUCK!"

-----

"How 'bout you Sideburns? You want some of this milk?"

Piper said...

Ray,

A man after my own heart. But my favorite quote is "what is it about good sex that makes me have to crap? You really jarred something loose tiger."

And Fox,

The sideburns quote made me laugh and almost crash the car when I read it.

And I also want to add one of my favorite Caddyshack lines. "Pick up that blood."

Burbanked said...

"Son, you've got a panty on your head."

"Cause she's got a GREAT ASS! And you got your head all the way up it!"

"I don't know what it is, but it's weird and pissed off."

"Isn't that just like a wop? Brings a knife to a gunfight."

"Come quietly or there will be...trouble."

Megan said...

"Exhibit B. Exhibit B is MISSING!"

"He'll regret it to his dying day. If ever he lives that long."

"It's ok, we can fix this. My dad's got a lot of tools."

"Yeah, man, Bishop should go. Good idea."

"SEE! The Cliffs of Insanity!"

I use all these at work. Whenever someone gets one, I get a little glow all over...

Anonymous said...

Piper - How could I skip that line?? I must have had a brainfart.

Burbanked - BRILLIANT quotes my friend!!!

Sarah said...

My list. And with some of these, I'm like Pavlov's dog...all I have to hear is "steak knives" and I'm quoting Glenary Glen Ross. It's a disease.

1. I love my dead gay son." - Heathers

2. Second prize is a set of steak knives. 3rd prize is you're fired. - Glengary Glen Ross

3. Oh, that gate key. - Princess Bride

4. Yes, satan?...oh, I'm sorry sir, you sounded like someone else.

5. I'm not kidding, that boy's head id like Sputnick...spherical but quite pointy at parts. ...He'll be crying himself to sleep tonight, on his huge pillow. - So I Married an Axe Murderer.

Anyone who recognizes these quotes at a bar or party automatically gets free drinks from me:

"Have a good time, all the time." -- David Kaff as Viv Savage, Spinal Tap

"Jar Jar Binks makes the Ewoks look like fuckin' Shaft." – Simon Pegg as Tim, "Spaced"

"Malvert pee red!" - Malvert, Student Bodies

"Looks like you stuck your finger up the wrong person's ass!" – M. Emmet Walsh as Loren, Blood Simple

"Up this ramp?" -- Sean Penn as Jeff Spicoli, Fast Times

"I quite enjoy a good crap. It's not all pain and anger." – Kenny

"Fagabefe?" – Barf, Midnight Madness

Adam Ross said...

Burbanked beat me to the "GREAT ASS!" line! Nights at the campus bar eventually evolved into a contest to see who could say that line the best (translation: loudest). This exchange would also be uttered at least once:

"Here's the beer, do you want me to pour it?"
"No, I want you to fuck it! Shit yes, pour the fucking beer!"

One more: Any time I see a piano I have to do Bill Murray's bit from "Ghostbusters," playing the two highest keys and saying "They hate this." I keep doing it in the hope that someone will eventually recognize it.

Piper said...

Godard,

Did you just quote the movie Student Bodies? Holy shit.

Adam,

Here's a love letter straight from my heart, fucker.

matthew said...

"But face it, you're a Neo Maxi Zoom Dweebie." The Breakfast Club

"Awesome amounts of alliteration from anxious anchors placed in powerful posts." Broadcast News

"The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long, and you have burned so very, very brightly." Blade Runner

Godard said...

Some productions, like Student Bodies, Spaceballs, the second Austin Powers and the last 20 seasons of Saturday Night Live, are better off quoted than actually seen. We remember the lines as being better than they were actually delivered.

Ah, I've always loved number one.
"And your name is you're wanting".
