Fun Monday: Movie Quote Edition

Courtesy of IT guy comes this week's Fun Monday assignment:

I need YOU (yes, the wonderful YOU!) to pick 5 memorable lines from 5 different movies (if you could tell us which character said it and to whom, would be a bonus)...and tell us to WHOM (who in the people in your life) you could have said those lines.

And so, here we go.


1) I use this one quite a bit with the kids in the car. From Shrek II, exchange between Shrek and Donkey:

D: Are we there yet?
S: No.
D: Are we there yet?
S: No.
D: Are we there yet?
S: No.

D: Are we there yet?
S: No.

D: Are we there yet?
S: Yes.
D: Really?!
S: No.


2) From The Princess Bride, which I randomly quote often and apropos of nothing:

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

Also, from this same movie, said by Miracle Max. I say it to the kids as they head off to school:

"Have fun storming the castle!"

3) Does this one count? I do the Darth Vader breathing.

(Do I really need to link it for you? Can't you just hear it in your head? C'mon....try it....you'll like it.....you don't know the power of the dark side...)

4) On any hot summer day: "I'm melting! I'm meeeeelllllllllttttiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnggggg!"

From The Wizard of Oz. Spoken by the Wicked Witch. Expression of dismay, said to no one in particular. Pretty much the way I use it.

5) Whenever the kids and I are getting ready to go somewhere: "Are you ready to rock and roll?"

From KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park (1978), said by Star Child (Paul Stanley).

So there you go, people. Five random movie quotes, not that I *would* use, but that I *do* use. Can't wait to see what other people have to say, in other people's words. mk

We say the quote about Rock and Roll and the time and I had NO IDEA where it came from. Thanks for the info.

Happy FM!

Great sendoff for anyone--"Have fun storming the castle." I hope most days to have that kind of determined attitude. Certainly that's what you'd want from your kids.

This was a fun one, wasn't it?

Of course now I think of better titles for this, like "'In Your Own Words'...or Not" or "In The Words Of..." or "What'd He Say?"

Just like coming up with the perfect comeback....hours later, when you're alone. mk
