Actual conversation that took place as Jared was preparing for a trip, meaning he was determining which movies to take with him, and, being the good husband that he is, he tries to take movies I have little to no interest in seeing. See why I keep him around?
Jared: Do you want to see The Adjustment Bureau? It’s the one with Matt Damon.
Me: Matt Damon, like, fat and with a mustache? Or hot?
Me: I mean, it matters.
J: No mustache, I think. How about Unknown? It’s like Taken with Liam Neeson.
Me: But who does it have in it?
J: Liam Neeson.
Me: But Taken had Liam Neeson.
Me: So, he did the same movie twice?
J: Do you want to see it or not?
J: You haven’t seen this one.
Me: But … ok, fine. Yes. I liked it well enough the first time.
J: *eye roll*
I should probably mention that he listed, like, six other movies that I swear I’ve never even heard of. I don’t understand. I watch the television. I occasionally go to the movie theater. Is it that everything that’s not Harry Potter just fails to make an impact on me? Except I knew what Arthur was, because I love the idea of Helen Mirren and Russell Brand being all inappropriate and flirty during the promotional tour.
Alright, I’m not normally one for memes, but I am one for movie quotes (as are many, many of my friends), and when I saw this post over at Pardon the Egg Salad, I decided to jump on board.
- Pick 10 (or so) of your favorite movies.
- Find, remember, or look up a quote from each movie.
- Post them here for everyone to guess.
- Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
- NO googling or cheating by doing an online search. Cheaters never prosper.
- Commenters should share the fun and only guess one movie (on the first try — if you come back and you know one that still hasn’t been chosen, knock yourself out).
I’m sure there’s nothing I do that you’d find exciting. I don’t open beer bottles with my toes, I don’t sit around and count what’s left of my teeth, hey, I don’t even enjoy a good tractor pull. It’s been a limited existence, but I’ve gotten used to it. lizteubner got this one — it’s “The Cutting Edge.” And oh, you guys, I have so many other quotes from this movie. Probably because, well, I can pretty much recite it from start to end.
It’s not the years, honey, it’s the mileage. Thank you, Lorra! Yes, It’s “Indiana Jones” — Raiders, if we’re being specific.
I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, … but I am proud of what I am. I… am a librarian. It’s “The Mummy,” as velocibadgergirl so keenly guessed.
I have two guns, one for each of ya. Kerrianne got it — Tombstone. I’m your Huckleberry. (This is another one I can pretty much do start to finish. Why I find a man with TB so damn hot is beyond me. Why oh WHY did Val Kilmer have to Brando?)
This job would be great if it wasn’t for the fucking customers. I figured my husband would know this one. We’ve watched it enough times! Good job on guessing “Clerks,” Jared.
I feel like such a heifer. I had two bowls of Special K, 3 pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, 5 peanut butter M&M’s and like 3 pieces of licorice. As Home Sweet Sarah knew without a doubt, it’s “Clueless.”
I’m not a witch, I’m your wife! Megan is right — it’s “The Princess Bride.” And also a quote I use on Jared ALL THE TIME.
I don’t know what’s scarier, neurotic cheerleaders or the pressure to win. I could make a killing selling something like Diet Prozac. It’s “Bring It On.” Thanks, Maggie!
“You learned English?” “Just in cases.” Kristin got this one right — it’s “Love, Actually.” One of my favorite movies, too!
At your age, you’re going to have a lot of urges. You’re going to want to take off your clothes, and touch each other. But if you do touch each other, you *will* get chlamydia… and die. That’s no word vomit — Emily, you’re correct. It’s “Mean Girls!”
I might make some enemies here, but the truth is that I don’t think The Office is all that funny. Honestly, it makes me squirm. It’s not that it’s hitting so close to home, or that I have a problem with Steve Carrell (loved him in Little Miss Sunshine) — it just generally doesn’t make me laugh. Smirk a little, maybe, but definitely not laugh.
Jared and I have run into this with movies, too. We turned off You, Me, and Dupree about 30 minutes in, and there have been a number of others that we’ve either turned off early or just not bothered with because we knew it was that “uncomfortable humor.”
I like to think I have a pretty good sense of humor. I’m okay with gross fart jokes, and I also enjoy intelligent, topical humor, but this new form of comedy is really leaving me cold. Thoughts?
