Movie Madness Monday 47: More of my wasted youth edition

Movie Madness Monday, and we're going to go back in time to my college days.

Here's how we play: I give you quotes from a movie, and you respond with lines of your own from the same movie WITHOUT NAMING THE MOVIE so that everyone can play. Later in the week I will tell you the movie title, if someone hasn't blown it.

"Everything is different, but the same... things are more moderner than before... bigger, and yet smaller... it's computers... San Dimas High School football rules!"

"George Washington. One: the father of our country."
"Two: born on President's Day."
"Three: the dollar bill guy."

"Now, who was Joan of Arc?"
[pauses] "Noah's wife?"

"'Socrates - "The only true wisdom consists of knowing you know nothing.'"
"That's us, dude."

"Deacon, do you realize you have just stranded one of Europe's greatest leaders in San Dimas?"

****Thursday Update: Be excellent to each other; it's

Who could NOT love a movie that has a Go-Go playing Joan of Arc? And Clarence Clemons playing a floating future world leader? Whatever happened to Alex Winter? A question which is surely burning in everyone's mind, I am sure. No matter what, this movie was not bogus!

"Dude, it's Sigmund Frood. How much time we got left?"

"Tons. Why?"

"Extra credit, dude."

"Strange things are afoot at the Circle K."

I hear they actually might be making another one (NO joke). I would be ridiculously happy if that were to happen!

D'OH!! mswhite took my absolute favorite quote from this most triumphant movie!

"What number are we thinking of?
Sixty-nine, dude!!"

"All we are, is dust in the wind."
"Dude, that was some serious philosophizing."

"Sure Missy... I mean, Mom"

"Deacon, do you realize you have just stranded one of Europe's greatest leaders in San Dimas?"
Deacon: "He was a dick."

Since I was actually in high school when that movie came out, I have especially fond memories of it.
