Thirteen of my favorite movie/tv quotes

wouldn't it be a wonderful world if fear and desperation made us more attractive ... if needy was a turn on
Broadcast News

I was going to be so good you would have left your body three times and begged it to get back in when you saw how much fun it was having
Murphy Brown

Dr. Egon Spengler: It would be bad.
Dr. Peter Venkman: I'm fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, "bad"?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Dr Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Right. That's bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.

King Arthur: The lady of the lake, her arms outstreached, pulled forth the shimmering samite. Signifying by devine providence that I Arthur should carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king!
Dennis: Listen. Strange women laying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses not from some farcical aquatic cerimony.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Inigo Montoya: You are using Bonetti's Defense against me, ah?
Man in Black: I thought it fitting considering the rocky terrain.
Inigo Montoya: Naturally, you must suspect me to attack with Capa Ferro?
Man in Black: Naturally... but I find that Thibault cancels out Capa Ferro. Don't you?
Inigo Montoya: Unless the enemy has studied his Agrippa... which I have.

Princess bride

Bart: Are we awake?
Jim: We're not sure. Are we... black?
Bart: Yes, we are.
Jim: Then we're awake... but we're very puzzled

Blazing Saddles

Vercotti: Doug (takes a drink) Well, I was terrified. Everyone was terrified of Doug. I've seen grown men pull their own heads off rather than see Doug. Even Dinsdale was frightened of Doug.
Interviewer: What did he do?
Vercotti: He used... sarcasm. He knew all the tricks, dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, puns, parody, litotes and... satire. He was vicious.

Monty Python's Flying Circus

Loki: Let it never be said that your anal-retentive attention to detail never yielded positive results.
Bartleby: You can't be anal-retentive if you don't have an anus.


That's a lot of alliteration from anxious anchors put in powerful possitions.
Broadcast News

Stay close to the candles. The stairway can be... treacherous
Young Frankenstein

Hooper: Always some white boy gotta invoke the holy trilogy. Bust this: Those movies are about how the white man keeps the brother man down, even in a galaxy far, far away. Check this shit: You got cracker farm boy Luke Skywalker, Nazi poster boy, blond hair, blue eyes. And then you got Darth Vader, the blackest brother in the galaxy, Nubian god!
Banky Edwards: What's a Nubian?

Chasing Amy

You can't touch me now. I'm one of the stately homos of England
The Naked Civil Servent

You know what I'm going to get you next Christmas, Mom? A big wooden cross, so that every time you feel unappreciated for your sacrifices, you can climb on up and nail yourself to it.
The Ref

Thursday 13 Jan 14, 2010 - Why I HATE being sick

1. Its so damn expensive. Been to the Walgreen's clinic twice and to the doctor once, plus a strep test and countless cough drops and decongestants. All told spent about $400 and they still really have no idea why I'm sick. The latest theory is a sinus infection.

2. Taking drugs. I try to be careful about taking anti-biotics so I won't get resistant of them. Well I got desperate when the pain in my throat reached a pain level of 8. I've taken 2 courses of Amoxicillin and now he's got me on Levaquil, which by the way is $17 per pill without insurance $3 with insurance. Pharmaceutical bloodsuckers.

3. No sleep. I wish I was one of those people who could sleep when they're sick. Slightest discomfort and I'm awake ugh!

4. Not getting anything done. My to do list is so long I had a panic attack.

5. No human contact. I'm just laying around my house like a hermit.

6. Feeling yucky. I turn into a 5 year-old

7. No sleep - this was a biggy, needed to be in there twice.

8. Can't make plans - Hate having to say, "We'll see how I'm feeling".

9. Horrible health insurance. I know I come back to the money thing, but hey I'm unemployed. $500 a month for private health ins and it has a $5k deductible so its completely useless.

10. Doctors who no longer "get you in" when your sick. My doctors office actually told me to go to the clinic because he couldn't see me for 3 days.

11. I never know what to eat. Don't have the energy to cook so I'm spending even more money on take-out. (and yes I seem to be a bit obsessed about money these days).

12. Feeling like I'm never going to be healthy again.

13. Being emotional. I seem to be really emotional when I'm sick. I've been crying at the oddest television shows.

Oh well. Hopefully the next TT I'll be all better and my list will be a bit more fun!
