You're a riot!

A friend mine called me right afterward and and said he missed the end and asked me what the final ten were. I was trying to convince him that the top ten included lines from Clerks and the Ref.

Dante Hicks: "I'm not supposed to be here today! "

(BTW: It's getting near BB time when we quote bad language all the time, so I guess it's OK to quote some from mainstream movies.)

Great lists, but you know I gotta throw in Star Trek:

STII: The Wrath of Khan: "The needs of the many outweight the needs of the few ... or the one." (Spock's death(?) scene) :cry:

Here are some from Monthy Python the Holy Grail:

Black Knight: It's just a flesh wound

Black Knight: [calling after King Arthur] Oh, I see. Running away, eh? You yellow bastard. Come back here and take what's coming to you. I'll bite your legs off

Tim: I *warned* you, but did you listen to me? Oh, no, you *knew*, didn't you? Oh, it's just a harmless little *bunny*, isn't it?

French Soldier: I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries

French Soldier: You don't frighten us, English pig dogs. Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-called "Arthur King," you and all your silly English K-nig-hts.

Crackers...I lived in Natchitoches, Louisiana when Steel Magnolias was being filmed. I actually met some of the cast...Julia Roberts, Sally Fields, Dolly Parton...just to name a few. They are genuinely nice people in real life. Not snobby at all. Just plain people!

That movie is based on a real family from Natchitoches. Pronounced (Nack - Ah - Tish)

The Author still has a home there. The main part of the city still to this day, looks just like it did when they made the movie. It is one of my favorites!! :P

I have a very strange question about a quote. I work with a child with autism and if any of you know about that, a lot of kids will script movies, tv shows, etc. Well, my child scripts heavily and he's been saying this one line everyday at least 3 times in an hour, if not more. It's killing me to know what he's scripting from. It's so random, but I thought it was worth a shot to ask. The line is:

"He met Eric."

LOL, yes, that's all you got to go on. :rolleyes:

Thanks!
