Fun Monday #12
This week's Fun Monday host is IT Guy and this is his assignment:
I need YOU (yes, the wonderful YOU!) to pick 5 memorable lines from 5 different movies (if you could tell us which character said it and to whom, would be a bonus)...and tell us to WHOM (who in the people in your life) you could have said those lines.
I don't watch that many movies, I simply don't have the patience to sit for two hours and stare at the screen. But, there are several movies I do enjoy and my quotes come from these films.
Men in Black 1997
Kay (to Jay): No, Elvis is not dead. He just went home.
This quote always makes me giggle. In his younger years, Himself did a mean Elvis impression but he had to be very, very drunk to do it and when he was, t was most definitely time for Elvis to go home!
Blade Runner 1982
"Home again home again jiggedy jig"
This is said to Deckard when he comes home by his robot (I think, my memory is a little hazy!) and we say it to each other every time we come home after being away for a weekend.
Independence Day 1996
Captain Steve Hiller (Will Smith): Oops.
David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum): What do you mean, oops?
Another one we say to each other! Despite my protestations that I'm not a great movie watcher, Himself is so quotes from films seem to play a regular part in our conversations! "Oops" is a word I use quite often and Himself usually remembers the response!
Little Shop of Horrors 1986
"Feed me Seymour, feed me now!
I don't think this is the exact quote but it's close enough! Another one that we use here when one of us is starving hungry!
Cool Hand Luke 1967
"What we have here is a failure to communicate"
Not sure who said this to whom in the film but it's one of Himself's favourite quotes and gets used a lot round here.....when should be fairly obvious!
Ummm....I'm not sure I've stuck strictly to the rules on this one but it's the best I can do! Head on over to IT Guy's blog to visit the other participants!
