Kind of a tacky thought, but I seem to recall a few movies where quotes, morals and creeds come up in some situtations. Some of them are just so simple and basic it makes sense. These are ones that seem to stick with me.

Always be closing-Glengarry Glen Ross
Business talk for sure, but hey I used to when cold wind was coming through the window. LOL. IS this movie 90's?

Fair is fair-The Legend of Billie Jean
So simple and so.....fair. Don't cheat!

Be excellent to each other-Bill and Ted.
Makes sense to me. Maybe some warring countries could do that.

When someone I know tells me they're having car trouble, no matter what it is pertaining to, I always say "You got mud in the tire" - from My Cousin Vinny.

When we are at work and razzing on eachother(which we pretty much do all day), if it starts to get a bit too much, we will say "You were a little out of line, you insulted me a little bit" - from Goodfellas.

The first two that spring to mind were mentioned again (cuz they are CLASSICS dammit!) The RISKY BUSINESS "Sometimes you just gotta say...." one and the "Thats why they call them crushes...." one from 16 CANDLES.

I'll also throw in one my daughter has been spouting ever since we watched STAND BY ME a few weeks ago "I dont shut up, I grow up and when I look at YOU I throw up....."

- Talk to me goose... (Top Gun) Usually when I'm working with someone on a technical problem and they have know idea what the answer is. I love to do this to hardware vendors. They always say, did you just call me goose? heheee...

- Well this is not a boating accident! Didn't you get on a boat and check out these waters? From Jaws (I know it's from the 70s). Usually happens when I arrive on the scene and find that someone has messed something up. Some of the looks I get are priceless.

I quote lines from 80s movies all of the time... [Smile]

I've been quoting Eddie Murphy for years...whenever someone tells me something that is shocking or a bit of a surprise, I say...."Get the f**k outta here"....in a high pitched voice - Axel Foley - Beverly Hills Cop.

Sometimes I will break out with Eddie Murphy's weird laugh, people will think it's either him or Horschak from Welcome back Kotter.

I know pretty much all the Spicoli dialogue from Fast Times, as luck would have it a few years ago I walked into a convenience store where a friend was working and I went into the spiel towards the end of the movie. "Hey, I know you, you used to work at all American Burger." I was hoping he would tell "why don't you get a job Spicoli", but he didn't catch on until later. Funny nevertheless if you can find people on the saem wavelength with these quotes.

One of my best friends and I are always throwing around Karate Kid quotes. He does the most hilarious impersonation of Daniel scoring at Foosball during the date montage too, and I make him do it every time we get together.

Back when we were in college, we both attended an external program overseas and half the kids there were from the performing arts school. So they were always putting on these showcases, reading Shakespearian monologues and such. A lot of them were really pretentious about it, carrying on like they were God's gift to the art of acting and we were all supposed to fall over ourselves to watch them perform. The Performing Arts Director insisted that the rest of the class (i.e. the non-theater majors) be compelled to watch these showcases, so we were forced to sit through all this nonsense for months on end. Needless to say, all this compulsory viewing of bad acting showcases got old really quick. So as a joke my friend and I decided to put on our own impromptu showcase just to mock the whole pomposity of the proceedings. So we performed the "I hate this bike" scene from KK. Everyone recognized the dialogue immediately and were rolling in the aisles. Some of the actors were so offended at how we mocked their "craft" that they refused to talk to us for the rest of the semester, which worked out to be a really nice bonus.

"Wax On, Wax Off"

I have no idea what brought that one to mind. I think about it when I am wiping down my countertops in my kitchen.

"What's happenen hot stuff"--Sixteen Candles, as if you needed help on that one.

Pretty much anything from Sixteen Candles is good. My personal favorite is "I can't believe I gave my panites to a geek". I sure did and it is the best thing I ever did!! [Big Grin]

'Ghostbusters'...all the time, so much so that I often forget I'm quoting it: if my buddy pulls into the driveway its: "you can't park that here!" or doing some DTP on Quark "you don't think its too subtle do you, people are just gonna drive by and not see the sign?" or "Listen...you smell that?" or if someone says something stupid its "this reminds me of the time you tried to drill a hole through your head", giving money, pulling it away before going "you've earnt it" "And the flowers are still standing!" usually just before being asked to a leave a restaurant. And it goes on like so ad infinitum...

And 'Top Gun' of course, but most of you already know that [Wink]
