Never Fail

Some movie lines are always matter how many times you see them...

She turned me into a newt!...I got better…

I gotta no change…I’ll have ta give ya 9 more books…

I think people should mate for life…like swans... or Catholics…

I have found that alcohol, taken in sufficient amounts, produces all the effects of drunkenness

We want wine! We want the finest wines available to humanity, we want them here, and we want them now.

'cause you people are BASTARD PEOPLE! ... That's what you are!
You're just bastard people!

Carl Spackler: Make yourself at home.

Ty Webb: No, I don't want to stick to anything in here.

[to waiter] I'll have three fingers of Glenlivet, with a little bit of pepper... and some cheese

What are some of your "never fails"?


Lemmy Caution said...

"I've DONE everything a mother can do: I've locked her in her room, I've beat her with the car aerial. Nothing changes her. It's HARD being a loving mother!"

"This is a very complicated case, Maude. You know, a lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-yous. And, uh, lotta strands to keep in my head, man. Lotta strands in old Duder's head. Luckily I'm adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug regimen to keep my mind limber."

"So they call me Concentration Camp Ehrhardt?" of my all time big laugh favorites...

"If a man said that to me, I'd break his neck." I am a man. "Well, I mean a much shorter man."

Those are great Lemmy!

You reminded me of my favorite Waters:

"Maybe I should get out of Baltimore."

Retro Hound said...

Well, I know your first three.

Bunched Undies said...

Yes RH..i should have included attributions..

1. Monty Python & Holy Grail
2. Day at the Races
3. manhattan
4. Wilde
5. Withnail & I (deserves its own post, so many great lines)
6. Waiting for Guffmann
7. Caddyshack
8. Ron Burgundy

And, if I'm not mistaken Lenny's are from
1. Female Trouble
2. big Lebowski
3. To Be or Not to Be
4. Love and Death

think that's right

Lemmy Caution said...

Yep, you got my four correct.

I knew all of yours except for #4 - Wilde. Have never seen that one. Going to have to chuck it into the Netflix queue.

Also....Withnail is one of those movies that each time I watch it, becomes funnier and funnier. You are correct, just FULL of great lines.

Bunched Undies said...

You'll love Wilde Lemmy, it's very well done.

You know the first time I saw Withnail I didn't get it at all. But I watched it again and suddenly it all clicked. Now I wander around muttering:

"Here am I, a trained actor!"

"haven't heard from my agent in months...bastard must have died"

They're throwing themselves into the escape all this hideousness!!"

"Why has my head gone numb?"

You get the idea....

Lemmy Caution said...

Same here. First time I saw it...I just thought it was kind of a meandering mess. It grows on you.

Actually, the very same thing could be said about Lebowski (for me). Fist time was meh. Subsequent viewings have been sublime.

Tiger said...

What about:

-Does you'r dog bite?
-AU!!! I thought you said your dog doesn't bite!
-That is not my dog.


-I'd like a rrrrryyyyym.

Oh, and who could forget:

-I know a little German, he's sitting right over there!"

Bunched Undies said...

LOL....Top Secret and Pink Panther....well done Tiger!
