Movie quotes add panache to speech

By Shane Peterson 2005

For years now people have been using the same old words to say the same old things. For example: when greeting, one might say, “What’s up?” or “How are you?” These old words are starting to put a damper on life, so why not take life’s everyday quotes and put a different twist on them by using quotes from television and movies.

For example, when talking to someone in the morning, one might say:
•”What? Did you take stupid pill this morning?” -Mr. Potato Head/Toy Story
•”Gooooooooooood morning, Viet Nam!” -Adrian Cronauer/Good Morning, Viet Nam
•”What an excellent day for an exorcism.” -Regan McNeil/The Exorcist

When showing up late for class, one can make himself look cool by saying:
•”Wasssssssssup!” -Budweiser guy #2
•”Here’s, Johnny!” -Jack Torrance/The Shining
•”Hellooooooo, ladies!” -Val Venius/WWE Superstar

When your boss is telling you to do something outrageous, one could reply with:
•”I’m not a puppet. I’m a real boy” -Pinnocchio/Shrek
•”I’m sorry. All I heard was blah blah blah I’m a dirty tramp.” -Jan/Mr. Deeds
•”Talk to the hand.” -The Terminator/Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.

When trying to ask your crush out on a date, try using these clever quotes:
•”Hey, baby! I noticed you have braces. I have braces too!” -Butthead/Beavis and Butthead Do America
•”I’ll be in the neighborhood later on, and I was wondering if maybe you wanted to get some frozen yogurt, or perhaps a whole meal of food, if that would be agreeable?” -Frank/Old School
•”I love you, SheHulk.” -Chris Griffin/The Family Guy

When asked what your aspirations are at a job interview, one might say:
•”To do whatever you tell me, drill sergeant!” -Forrest Gump/Forrest Gump
•”Look, you’re really cute, but I can’t understand what you’re saying.” -Marlin/Finding Nemo
•”To be or not to be, that is the question.” -Hamlet/Hamlet

When being insulted by a bully, try to counter attack with these lines:
•”Were you born worthless, or did you have to work at it?” -Gunnery Sergeant Hartman/Full Metal Jacket
•”Yes, I have a question. When did you turn into a nutbar?” -Garth/Wayne’s World 2
•”I can practically hear you getting fatter.” -Richard/Tommy Boy

Some of these quotes might make a person look crazy, so be sure to use them responsibly. Hopefully, they will spice up your life.
