Movie Madness Monday 135: Skwirls predicting the weather edition

Here is a surprise reappearance of Movie Madness Monday, the movie quote trivia game. This is one of my favorites of all time because, every year, it feels so perfect for how I am feeling. So put your quotes in the comments section!

"People like it!"
"People like blood sausage, too. People are morons."

"This is one time where television really fails to capture the true excitement of a large squirrel predicting the weather."

"This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. Well, it used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. You're hypocrites, all of you! You have a problem with what I'm saying, Larry? Untie your tongue, and you come out here and talk, huh? Am I upsetting you, Princess?"

"You're gonna eat steak, you need to get some sharper teeth."

"There is no way this winter is ever going to end, as long as this groundhog keeps seeing his shadow. I don't see any other way out. He's got to be stopped. And I have to stop him."

"I like to say a little prayer and drink to world peace."
"To world peace."

"When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter."

One of my favorite movies with TONS of quotable parts. I quit dating a girl one time when she said she thought it was a stupid movie!

Groundhog Day "Rise and shine campers, it's Groundhog Day!"

Good one.

"Did he actually just refer to himself as 'the talent?'"
