Movie Madness Monday 82: Shark edition

Nothing says back to school like a good Movie Madness Monday! So let's dive in, shall we?

I give you the primer quotes, you give your own in the comments. Right? Here ya go, then.

"Miss Stoeger, I would just like to say that physical education in this school is a disgrace. I mean, standing in line for forty minutes is hardly aerobically effective. I doubt I've worked off the calories in a stick of Carefree gum."

"Isn't my house classic? The columns date all the way back to 1972!"

"Been shopping with Dr. Suess? "
"Well, at least I wouldn't skin a collie to make my back pack."

"I joined this program and there's steps. There's... uh..."
"Yeah, how'd you know?"
"Wild guess."

"You see how picky I am about my shoes, and they only go on my feet."

"Which reminds me, where's your report card?
"It's not ready yet."
"What do you mean, 'It's not ready yet?'"
"Well, some teachers are trying to low-ball me, Daddy. And I know how you say, 'Never accept a first offer,' so I figure these grades are just a jumping off point to start negotiations."

"It's just like Hamlet said, 'To thine own self be true.'"
"Hamlet didn't say that."
"I think I remember Hamlet accurately."
"Well, I remember Mel Gibson accurately, and he didn't say that. That Polonius guy did."

I love these little movie things. I can't figure out if you're making the quotes up, or what, and they sure don't come from any films I've ever seen.

But it's entertaining. Sorta like school is for kids who can't read, or didn't pass the preceding class in the sequence.

I finished a five-star soduku last week; maybe I'll figure it out.
