Name that Movie

For anyone that's met my husband and I, it's no secret that we kinda speak a weird language of our own.

It's movie language.

You see, BK* we used to LOVE watching movies together.

And then we watch the ones we loved over and over and over again.

Lines from those movies are forever burned into our cerebral cortex.

Those lines flow like honey into our daily conversations.

Not only with each other, but with others as well.

Other movie buffs get this...and can throw it back (which I LOVE)

Others kinda look at us with cocked heads and a furl in their brow.  Sigh.

Ok, below you'll find a list of the most commonly quoted lines in our house. 

Can you guess what movie their from?

1.  "I've never been so happy in my whole life!"


2.  "Catch you on the flip side"  As evidenced here.


3.  "Where is my AUTOmobile?"    "AUTOMOBILE?!?!?!?!"


4.  "There's no crying in baseball.  THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!"


5.  "Jump.back."


6.  "Yes indeedy, he helps with the dishes and does the laundry. You BETCHA!"


7.  "What did David do? ....  What did David do?"


8.  "I have a very low tolerance for dehydration."


9.  "What ever I want to do, GOSH!"


10.  "Did you mom marry Mr. Rogers?"  "No, Mr. Johnson"


And...here's the bonus question....if you can guess this movie, you will win the grand prize**

"You know, they don't make enough meat on a stick"




Top Ten {Tuesday}

*before kids

**The grand prize is this:  my complete and utter fanfare.  You see, I've been quoting this movie line for over 8 years, and I CANNOT remember (for the life of me!) which movie this is from.  I haven't slept since.  I may need therapy. 


I promise to post answers tomorrow.  Just in case you can't place these movie lines, and you start quoting them...and then you won't be able to sleep....I promise not to do that to you.  :)

There's Something About Mary - she says "I don't think they have enough meats on sticks." Is that what you're thinking of?

and I do not know any of those quotes. Except, I think it's a good educated guess that #9 is Napoleon Dynamite.

Yeah, I don't know any of those, but my husband and I have some of our own movie language. Any guesses on these?

"I got it, Grace, I got it."

"For the love of God and all that's holy, will you just calm the [heck] down!"

"Land the plane, [Liz], land the plane."

2. Boondock Saints.

3. Sixteen Candles (best. movie. ever.)

4. A League of Their Own ("Well, this would be more then, wouldn't it?")

5. Footloose!

9. Napoleon Dynamite (ugh)

The meat on sticks line is from "There's Something About Mary". I only know this because I googled it and it came right up... I'm sorry you lost 8 years of sleep over it, though. Maybe just look it up next time? ;)
