So I’m beginning to think that not everyone watches movies over and over again until they can recite complete dialogue like my family does. There are times when we have complete conversations that consist only of quotes from various movies, mixing and matching as we see fit.
Beloved favorites that are repeated often include:
“Kevin’s not here. Kevin’s not here. Kevin’s not here.” (It helps that we have a Kevin in our inner circle.)
“5:45! Five forty-five doesn’t do me any good. Network news is in make-up at 5:45.”
“You don’t want to be in love. You want to be in love in a movie.”
“You’ve got a baby! ….in a bar!”
“So I can kiss you any time I want.”
“You can’t ride two horses with one ass, Sugarbean.”
“I never fully understood that expression but no, I’m not shitting you.”
“Look what you’ve done, you little jerk!”
“Sydney, this is just a dinner. We’re not going to be doing espionage or anything.”
As you can see, we have a plethora of verbal gems from which to choose. So many lines,….so little time.
So now that I’ve digressed almost to the point of where the heck was I………..
Yesterday I posted seven interesting facts that weren’t really about me but instead characters in some of my favorite films. I challenged you to identify yourselves as my soul-mate and name the characters and/or movies.
I’m happy to announce that my new found soul-mate is ……..Otin, the Wizard, himself. One of these days, Otin and I are going to sit ourselves down with some sweet-tea
vodka and watch my our favorite flicks together. Right, Otin? I’m sure that Otin is dancing the fiesta dance right this very minute in celebration of my promised undying affection for him. Isn’t that right, Otin?
Otin came through with the answers to:
1. Sleepless in Seattle. (By the way, I really can peel an apple in one long, curly strip too.)
5. An American President
Janie also knew Twister but if she hadn’t Oklahoma would have disowned her as their part-time spokeswoman.
Eileen at Hit40 knew that #3 was Sweet Home Alabama. And poor Dana is worried that maybe I really did blow up a bank…..with a cat. I’m just not sure if she’s worried more about me…the cat….or the bank?
No one knew my all-time favorite #4 was The Family Man.
didn’t get got #7 by proclaiming that it couldn’t be is You’ve Got Mail. Kimberly also said You’ve Got Mail but I’m not sure if she was only talking about #7.
And dear, sweet Auntie thought that I really did all those things.
Mona, love, you know you can be secure in my adoration of you.
I had so much fun reading your comments that I thought we’d play again today. Can you name the movies that I’ve quoted above? Can ya? Huh?
