My New Favorite Quote

A teacher as she dismisses her class:
And please take your leftover lunches with you. My husband is tired of me coming home smelling like salami.
--From Stuart Little 2, which I have seen way too much of in the past five days since Zane’s been sick

Prairie Home Companion? Hmmm...I didn't know that anyone went to see that movie, but it's a great quote.

jw-
Is it strange that the only salty fisherman I can bring to mind is a Simpson's character? That show has truly entered my consciousness.

srh-
I always get "weird science" and "real genius" confused. Which one did they make the perfect computer girl in? Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.

Were you a big fan of the brat pack? I might have picked that - or I might not have. You always surprise me.

Hope you're feeling better.

From the brat pack days

Can I borrow your underpants for 10 minutes?

--Sixteen Candeles

Then I have to add quotes from my 2 favorite movies

We figured there was too much happiness here for just the two of us, so we figured the next logical step was to have us a critter.
--Raising Arizona

Almost every line of Princess Bride makes for a great quote...We always tell Jama to Have fun Stormin' da castle....and she tells us...Have fun stormin' IN the castle. I think they'd have two very different meantings.

Welcome, welcome, welcome!

And thanks for Urban Cowboy reference - who can get enough of the tagline "Hard hat days and honkey tonk nights"? Brilliant.

Raising Arizona is one of our all-time favorites - so many good lines in that one. Plus the car chase scene that is just cinematic genius.

My favorite Princess Bride line:
No more rhymes now, I mean it.
Anybody want a peanut?

Anybody want a peanut? My college friends and I used to say that at random moments. That and "Heed. Pants. Now." from Mike Myers greatest movie "So I Married an Ax Murderer."

My first comment on your page was, "My legs are sweatin', mama." I win the worst first comment contest.

My favorite line from So I Married... - He'll be crying himself to sleep on his big, fat pillow tonight. Great flick, that.
