Movie Madness Monday: Comedy isn't pretty edition
Yes, even though you thought I would be distracted by a sick dog at the Cornelius house, I have BARELY gotten in my weekly trivia geek contest known as Movie Madness Monday.
Here's the deal: Each Monday, I post some salient quotes from one wonderful example from the world of film. You then respond to said quotes by posting a quote of your own from the same film. As I am addicted to quotes, I get validation, and you help me feel that I am not the only geek in the world that quotes huge blocks of text from movies that I have seen. I seek to delurk you through geekiness! Who can resist?
So here we go, with one of my VERY FAVORITES EVAH:
"And I was just thinking: as much as I really admire your shoes, and as much as I'd love to have a pair just like them, I really wouldn't want to be IN your shoes at this particular place and time."
"Naughty: uh, pardon me, sir, some of the ladies have asked if you wouldn't mind putting that thing away."
"I think it's brilliant! What an idea! And I was there! He took the idea! He saw it ripe on the tree, he plucked it, and he put it in his pocket. It's, it's, dare I say... genius? Ah, no, no! But maybe, ooh! ah! maybe it is! Maybe I'm in the presence of greatness, maybe I just don't know it. But I saw it... "
"Oh, ho, ho, irony! Oh, no, no, we don't get that here. See, uh, people ski topless here while smoking dope, so irony's not really a, a high priority. We haven't had any irony here since about, uh, '83, when I was the only practitioner of it. And I stopped because I was tired of being stared at."
"He's got a great ass."
"Too bad it's on his shoulders."
"I notice you do not have any tattoos. Wise choice. Jackie Onassis would not have gone so far with an anchor on her arm."
"Who designed these steps? The Marquis de Sade?"
"Hey, Sophie. Do you know the old saying about a man's nose?
"You mean how the size of a man's nose relates to the size of his...?"
"Oh, my God!"
***Wednesday Update: The movie is Roxanne, with Steve Martin, Daryl Hannah, and Shellly Duvall among others-- Steve's brilliant update of Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand. This one makes me laugh every time!
"Your name wouldn't happen to be Dick, would it?!"
"You must LOVE the little birdies to give them THIS to perch on!"
