Just *Some* of my Favorite Movie (Line)s


Everyone has their favorites.

I have mine; you have yours. Maybe some of mine will remind you of some of yours.

There is no way I can include them all, but these are the ones that I love most of the time, because I remember them so often. I picked the lines I did because I they are more obscure than the more popular lines and I am hopeful that when you read them, you’ll be taken back to your favorite moment in the film. Without further ado, in no particular order:

  1. We’ve come for your daughter, Chuck.
  2. Somebody blows their nose and you want to keep it?
  3. Throw me the idol, I give you the whip.
  4. This town needs an enema!
  5. They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue.
  6. We released ourselves on our own recognizance.
  7. They fuck you at the drive-thru!
  8. This house is clean.
  9. This is U.S. History, I see the globe right there.
  10. I wish we could just run away.
  11. I’ve never seen sugar do that.
  12. There are some who call me … Tim?
  13. I don’t know, Sparks. But I guess I’d say if it is just us… seems like an awful waste of space.
  14. Listen, I haven’t got a lot of time, but if you love your country, if you’re a patriot, you’ll listen and you’ll listen hard. I’ve got to get to a phone and you gotta make a call.
  15. How much you wanna bet I can throw this football over them mountains?
  16. Once you have a man with no legs, you never go back, baby.
  17. I think this boy’s cheese has done slid off his cracker.
  18. Eunice? There’s a person named Eunice?
  19. But why is the rum gone?
  20. My problem is that it’s 2 A.M. My problem is I’m asleep. I’m on a tour bus with eight stinkin’ men. Rule number one: Don’t propose to a girl on a bus, you got that? Rule number two: Don’t tell her it’s because you had a bad dream.
  21. That’s the beauty of it. I wake up one day, I don’t know where I’m gonna’ end up or who I’m gonna’ meet.
  22. The time for honoring yourself will soon be at an end.
  23. Well, you can’t never let anything happen to him. Then nothing would ever happen to him. Not much fun for little Harpo.
  24. You killed the car.
  25. There’s your Chinaman, Fred.
  26. Well, man from health department say he find rat pellet in pastry but I say no, is big chocolate sprinkle, but he shut store down. So we clean up, make big cookie for to bring customers back.
  27. You, ‘Flock of Seagulls,’ you know why we’re here? Why don’t you tell my man Vincent where you got the shit hid at?
  28. I love my dead gay son.
  29. There’s a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours.
  30. And this lamp… that’s all I need.
  31. Here’s to swimming with bow-legged women.
  32. Put a sock in it, boy, or else you’ll be outta here like shit through a goose.
  33. Mother Nature just pissed her pantsuit!
  34. The only way somebody would get that would be to chop off my – finger. Let’s go down to the garden and find out what’s buried there.
  35. Young, young man. Did anyone ever tell you you look like a young prince out of the ‘Arabian Nights’?

Thank you.

  1. What’s Up Doc was awesome. Yes Eunice. just the things that happen in the background as well. Yes Eunice. Like the guy tripping up the stairs in the shop. [Taxi driver] Yes Eunice.

  2. I have seen all of those movies. I don’t think I could match a single quote. I am so bad at this stuff! I’m glad I have friends like you who can remember all of the things I can’t seem to remember.

    Great idea for a post!

      • I have a feeling your not so obscure movie lines would be lost on me as well. I just don’t have that kind of memory. My sister does. She’s like a walking encyclopedia. Still, I love posts like this.

  3. Hey man keep up your blog its great!

    I just started my first blog and need help getting some traffic! My blog is called MovieswithMusic and its a daily post of a kickass movie trailer and a tune weather it be a music video or audition anything you can Jam to! i was wondering if you could help me?

    • hi wyeld, thanks for stopping by! i checked out your blog – you just got started! good for you! i want you to do a couple things: tag your posts. do you know what “tag” means in the blogging world? it means to use labels like “movie soundtracks” “thrillers” “dramas” “comedy” “R&B” or “jazz” or whatever your interest / post is about.

      another thing would be to use the “sharing” tools in WordPress’s dashboard and select it to upload all your posts to Facebook and Twitter if you have accounts there.

      another tip would be to comment on like-minded blogs and come back and stay active.

      there are several wonderful blogs that would help you on your journey from your accident. i hope you will give your self a break and dial back on the “striving for perfection” as there is no such thing and immortality is a fun concept, but wouldn’t it break your heart to see all your loved ones come and go?

      check out movie blogs … there are so many! you found mine today probably because you saw my “tag” – “movies” and you were in…

      use great headlines. “Movies with Music” is the name of your blog; but every post (article) has it’s own theme or “reason” right? so make sure that post / article has a compelling and good headline. headlines are probably THE MOST IMPORTANT aspect of driving readers to your blog.

      come up with a schtick, see what works, watch your stats and see what gets the most response… after a month or two you should be able to see patterns develop. stick with those patterns.

      try to create a schedule – say on mondays you write about movies on DVD; wednesdays you write about foreign films; friday you write about animation… whatever works for you. just keep cultivating it and people will come… i can’t read all the blogs i get every day. it’s impossible, so only post if you enjoy it. don’t expect lots of people to come to your site for every post.

      as i said, i’ve been at this for 2 years and i average about 80 views a day when i post a regular piece and about 150 when i post a recipe or a health topic.

      try to be funny or knowledgeable — remember: you want to give people something for coming to read you, not just your opinion, but your thinking behind your opinion: “why you should care about this post” and then tell them.

      ask people to guest post for you and offer to do that for others.

      and last tip:

      … be patient. i’ve been at this for 2 years. it’s hard work and if you love it, it will love you too. don’t post if you don’t feel like it. i don’t post every day. i have ONE standard, “Tuesday Morning Press” in which i write one post within one hour.

      it will come. trust it and don’t give up. just remember: if you’re doing this to get rich and famous… change your objective. it’s not a place where people get rich or famous… but try to enjoy it and do it for your friends or yourself. whatever you enjoy, others will too.

      good luck!
