What movie line sticks with you for no reason?

My friends and I were talking about movie lines that, while not profound, stick in your head anyway.
For no apparent reason, I love recalling the Hindenberg scene in “Indiana Jones III” where Indy, passing himself off as a blimp conductor to avoid discovery by the Nazis, tosses a nazi who got wise out of the blimp to certain death below. When the crowd looks at him in shock, he hesitates, then points out the window and replies with bravado:
“No ticket!”
With that, the entire blimp rush feverishly to show their tix.
It was just done so well.
Anyone else got one? The “Kitner boy” line from Jaws also comes to mind.

The more you drive, the less intelligent you are. - from Repo Man

Boogie Nights
“You having a good time, Eddie?”
“Oh yeah”
“Good, that’s what Jackie’s house is for.”

“That John Denver’s full of shit man.”

From the movie Dumb & Dumber.

The way he said that line made me laugh my ass off.

From “Better Off Dead”…

Paper Boy: “I Want My Two Dollars!”
From “Legend”…

Tom Cruise: “You don’t really mean to eat me, do you?”
Swamp Creature: “Oh indeed I do!”

Lines delivered in impenetrable accents tend to stick in my mind:

“Giff me dot Cobra jool!”—Maria Montez, “Cobra Woman”

“Go. I am wee-wee of you now”—Marlene Dietrich, “Shanghai Express”

“Ay hayde her. Ay hay dot Qvinn!”—Zsa Zsa Gabor, “Queen of Outer Space”

“You do drugs, Danny?”
“Every day.”

Caddyshack lines have a tendency to stick with me. So do lines from Monty Python, Animal House and Ghostbusters.

“It’s just a little bunny rabbit.”

“You fucked up, you trusted us…”

“What did you do, Ray?”

Joe Pesci’s line from Lethal Weapon 2:
“He’s right, ya know… y’are.”

Crow, from anther MST3K:
“Wow, let’s not do that again.”


You ever been convicted of a crime?

Convicted? Nope…
Recruiting Officer and Bill Murray in Stripes

We’re on a mission from God.
Dan Akroyd in The Blues Brothers

Look, strange women, lying in ponds and distributing swords is not a basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses! Not from some farcical aquatic ceremony!
Michael Palin in Monty Python and the Holy Grail

I FART in your general direction!
???(John Cleese I think) in Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Where are we?

We’re safe.

Yes…but where are we?

We’re in the hold of a Vogon Constructor Ship.

Ahhh…this is obviously some strange new usage of the word ‘safe’ I was previously unaware of!
??? playing Arthur Dent in the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

Jack, you’re a grown man. You have control over your words!

I have control over my words? Ok. Here’s two words for you. Shut the fuck up!
Charles Grodin and Robert DeNiro in Midnight Run

My two favorite movies of all time are Ghostbusters and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

From Ghostbusters, I can never ever stop laughing at:

“That’s a big twinkie”


“I love this plan! I’m excited to be a part of it!”

In fact, I use these lines in almost DAILY life.
From Ferris, I love:

“Well, makes you look like an ass is what he does Ed.”

and this exchange:

“Uh, don’t worry sir, I’m a professional.”
“Professional WHAT?”


Please, why this ‘Junior’

That’s his name! Henry Jones Junior.

I like Indiana.

We named the dog ‘Indiana’.

(Of course, you have to do it their voices…)
From “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”

Ghostbusters is full of them:

“Okay, so, she’s a dog.”

“Ray. The next time someone asks if you’re a god, say YES!”

“Let’s show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown.”

“Aim for the flat top!”

“Nobody steps on a church in my town!”

From Hook:

“I think I just had an apostrophe.”
“I think you mean an epiphany”
“Lightening … has just struck my brain.”
“Well, that must of hurt.”


“That just fell right out there, sir”

“Oh, sure. Blame the bat.”

Disney’s Hunchback of Notre Dame

“Achellis. Heel.”
Disney’s Atlantis:

“How’d you get in here?”
“I came down your chimney. Ho. Ho. Ho.”

All the above lines stick to you 'cause they’re pretty good. These lines from RoboCop stick with my for no good reason:

I like it!
I’ll buy that for a dollar!
And from “Our Gang” (they used to be in the movies, right?):
Come, come Algebra.

A line that sticks with me for no reason? As opposed to being a good, funny line that sticks in my head legitimately?

From Dead Again: “If fate works at all, it works because you think this time it isn’t going to happen!”

I remember it, I think, because of Derek Jacobi’s intensity and because of his inimitable cadence. Also because I’ve seen the movie like fifteen times.

From Ghostbusters:
“I don’t know.” [takes swig of beverage, shakes head] “I don’t know.”

From History of the World, Part I:
“It’s good to be da king.”
“You said it, they stink on ice.”

From Real Genius:
“Then I’m happy and sad for you.”

From Titanic (modified frequently to describe myself):
“You look like kind of an…indoor…girl.”

From Galaxy Quest:
“That was a hell of a thing.”

And, of course, from Ace Ventura, Pet Detective:
“Allll-righty, then!”

From Ghostbusters:
"I don’t know. <takes swig of drink, shakes head> “I don’t know.”

From History of the World, Part I:
“It’s good to be the king.”
“You said it, they stink on ice.”
“We are now armed with Mighty Joint!”

From Real Genius:
“Then I’m happy and sad for you.”

From Galaxy Quest:
“That’s a hell of a thing.”

From Titanic (and which I frequently use to describe myself):
“You seem like kind of an…indoor…girl.”

More Ghostbusters stuff, some good and some just stuck for no reason:

“You’re right. No human would stack books this way.”

“That’s amazing! I was just about to say ‘eight o’clock?’”.

“The effects? I’ll tell you the effects! It’s pissing me off!”

“Great, Egon. Somebody blows their nose and you want to save it.”

“I’m a little fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing.”
“Try and imagine every particle in your body exploding outward at the speed of light and the end of all life as we know it.”
“OK, that would be bad. Important safety tip, guys.”

And much, much more but I’ll restrain myself.


I timed out, then refreshed to see if the post went through, anyway. IT DIDN’T SHOW UP!

Sorry 'bout that.

That’s a hell of a thing.

All the time! Me too!

Also from Ace Venture:
Do you mind if I aaassssss[sub]k[/sub] you some questions?

From The Princess Bride:
I’m not a witch, I’m your wife and I’m not even sure I want to be that anymore!

From The Holy Grail:
…with big, nasty pointy teeth! [sub]I like to make the motions the wizard does at this point in the movie, fingers for fangs, the whole thing[/sub]

<SCENE: Sigourney Weaver has been possessed and is hitting on Bill Murray>

BM: I make it a rule to never get involved with possessed people.

SW: <starts kissing BM>

BM (mumbles): Well…it’s more of a guideline than a rule…
And later talking to Egon…

BM: I like that girl. She sleeps above her covers…three FEET above her covers!
