Don't quote me

One of my favorite things to do is to reuse quotes from old movies. I like doing this because I can say something in jest and quote from a movie and if the person gets offended I just laugh it off as a joke. For example:

When one of my kids messes up, instead of yelling at them, I usually say: “There's no way, that you came from my loins. Soon as I get home, first thing I'm gonna do is punch yo mamma in da mouth.”

When my boss expects me to do something without telling me what I am supposed to do and later get mad at me for not doing it, I say: “What we have here is a failure to communicate.”

When my dear wife gets mad at someone and wants my opinion on what to do, I usually say: “let’s give em the old number 6.”

And when someone gets angry at me and throws a fit, I usually sarcastically say: “Lighten up Francis”

You have to guess the movies though.

I also hate clichés and not just because I can’t spell the word. (thank you spell check). I often misquote them just to pick at people. My least favorite is “There are no stupid questions” So when someone says that I usually follow it up with “yea only stupid people.” Now before you jump on me for saying “stupid people” “walk a mile in my tennis shoes” If you had to sit through some of the meetings I do and listen to some of the questions that are asked you wound understand why I said that and also understand why brother and sister should never marry each other.

Have a great day,

I do it with song titles, then start singing the song. This really winds some folks up, but do I care? just show them a number 6 (IS THAT RIGHT?)
Play it again Sam, whilst I look up which movies these came from...

Yes you should look them up. The number 6 quote is from one of the most funny movies ever made. In my opinion that is.

I hadn't thought about it, but I have a bunch too- all movie or TV related :)

The answer to whatever question I'm asked is often "42"...(hitch hikers guide)
And I've gotten so many quotes from Seinfield it's not funny :)

I'll have to google the #6 quote- can't figure out which one that is- Hope you have a great week :)

I am absolutely horrible with remembering movie quotes, stars of a movie, titles of a movie...but ask me details of the movie and I can recount the entire thing, or ask me to summarize a book and I can tell you the entire story...

I guess I have a strange brain...
