Movie Quotes That Pop in Your Head/You Use

    Do you have a favorite quote from a movie that either pops into your head during specific situations or that you use? I have two.

    1) Every time I see a police officer, police car, or the like, I'm reminded of when Buzz Lightyear first saw Woody in Toy Story. So in my head or even mumbling, I'll say, "Ah, local law enforcement."

    2) From the movie Captain Ron, I love using the line, "Tell the General shit happens." I queued that up on Netflix a couple of weeks ago, and my 15-year old exclaimed, "So *THATS* where you got that" :lol:

    I'm actually going to pull a Star Trek one from Voyager's "Ashes to Ashes" when Ballard says one of her favorite Klingon sayings is "Own the day." Not sure how often I reference it but I think it occasionally and have used it before.

    Two that comes up with good frequency:

    "You'd have a better chance playing Pick-Up Sticks with your butt cheeks."

    and

    "I guess that isn't exactly Plan B..."

    Generally speaking, whenever my wife and I are visiting friends and we're offered a beverage, I say, "Yes, have some."

    A lot of Star Trek ones for sure. And like tharpdevenport i use "inconceivable!" often.
    And, weirdly, "Look Ma, disco!" (that's from Mr. Mom).
    I know there's lots more, i just have to sit and think about it.

    "Coffee, the finest organic suspension ever devised"
    This comes out of my mouth a lot more than it should.

    "Say 'hello' to my little friend"
    I don't say it, but it goes through my head a lot.

    "I told you never to use wire hangers"
    I think it or say it every time I do laundry. If you don't know where it's from, then you've made me old.

    "I don't think so, Tim."
    I say this when someone tells me something that is, to me, obviously stupid.

    Lena Lamont in Singing in the Rain, in the horrible voice of hers:
    "What do you think I am--dumb or something?"

    My husband and I use that one to each other a lot.

    Not so much of a movie quote, but I do say "Frell" sometimes.

    I'm not proud of it, and it doesn't make much sense most of the time, but every once in a while, when plans go awry, I am known to mutter "So much for the training cruise..."

    I can talk in movie/tv quotes, and I frequently use 80's cartoon insults. And Jem'Hadar lines. It's a serious problem.

    I've got a bad feeling about this.

    Don't call me Shirley.

    I don't think so, Tim.

    I often used the phrase "I'd buy THAT for a dollar!" every time I entered Poundland. But that was when the exchange rate was favourable....

    One of my favorite authors (David Rosenfelt) has a character who, along with one of his friends, talks in song lyrics. They constantly try to outdo each other. It's very funny.

    We play a similar game with song titles, and whoever manages to seamlessly slip in "Making Plans For Nigel" is the winner. :lol:

    I am so glad I'm not the only person who does this.
