How many odd, obscure, or funny movie lines do we all know? I'll start!

"I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. That, or Duder. His Dudeness. Or El Duderino, if, you know, you're not into the whole brevity thing--"

One of my all time favorite movies... Who knows it? posted_image

Big Lebowski?     

This one should be easy, at least for the older crowd.   "My Dad's a TV Repairman, he's got an awesome set of tools, we can fix this."

Ding, Ding, Ding... Big Lebowski.

I guess I'll have to come up with something a bit MORE obscure.

Hey, I just thought about what you said... "especially for the older crowd..." I resembl... I mean resent that remark! LOL

OK... Here's a list!

Aw, now ain't that a shame? Folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that.

Ah, ah... Nobody says the "B" word.

Freeze, gopher!

Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now. As I slooshied, I knew such lovely pictures!

I once caught a fish this big. (Hint: Actor is standing in a large robotic machine, and he uses the machine to indicate how big the fish was.)

Wonderful story, Bodie. I noticed you've stopped stuttering.
I've been giving myself shock treatments.
Up the voltage!

Next thing you know they're going to find me, floating at the bottom of the Hudson.

Me? Of course! I've been looting and pillaging up and down the coast.

I asked for a car, I got a computer. How's that for being born under a bad sign?

Commander Powell would've named it.

But you think... You think you're an intellectual, don't you, ape?
Apes don't read philosophy.
Yes, they do, Otto, they just don't understand it.

Well, Pete, I just figured it should the the one with capacity for abstract thought. But if that ain't the consensus view, hell, let's put her to a vote!

They send you here for life, and that's just what they take from you.

Let me tell you something, Shelly. I do what I'm hired to do. I'm...wait a second. I'm hired to watch the leads. I'm given... hold on, I'm given a policy. My job is to do that. What I'm told. That's it. You, wait a second, anybody falls below a certain mark I'm not permitted to give them the premium leads.

That's right. When I was your age, television was called books. And this is a special book. It was the book my father used to read to me when I was sick, and I used to read it to your father. And today, I'm gonna read it to you.

That's enough for now! Let's see who can keep up with Dave in the "obscure-movie-references-club"!

The answer is so easy:  all those lines are from Scary Movie 3!

(...except for that last line.  I think G. Massey said that one...)

Peter Falk in The Princess Bride.  That movie has loads of great obscure quotes.

Ok, here's a couple:

"I'm not kidding, that boy's head is like Sputnik; spherical but quite pointy at parts! Now that was offsides, wasn't it? He'll be crying himself to sleep tonight, on his huge pillow."

" (as Stegosaurus) Yes...yes. This is a fertile land, and we will thrive. We will rule over all this land, and we will call it...this land. (as Allosaur) I think we should call it your grave! (as Stegosaurus) Ah! Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! (as Allosaur)Ha ha ha! Mine is an evil laugh! Now DIE!"

" Punctual: all right, Delbman, your nose was on time but YOU were fifteen minutes late!"

Firefly... not a movie, but a TV series. PAINFULLY obscure. Well done! (I have the DVD's!) Oh, God!!! LOL

Roxanne, starring Steve Martin. One of his best, AFAIAC.

I hope nobody was taking stevdart's suggestion as all those quotes from Scary Movie... posted_image

Red, played by Morgan Freeman, in The Shawshank Redemption?  One of the greatest stories written and one of the best films, too.  A reference that makes you think of prison, to be sure!

Well this was a thread I thought should've gone further... So anyone that wants to play along--

1) Life doesn't care about your vision. You just gotta roll with it.

2) Get your cousin outta that clown costume! Havin' that heat stroke again. Scarin' white folks...

3) Don't clutter up a clever scheme with morality

4) After Shiloh, the South never smiled.

5) You'll find a slight squeeze on the hooter an excellent safety precaution.

6) What the hell was that you little freckle face cartoon? Did I give you permission to sneeze, Opie?

7) Oh come alive, Rachel. Please come alive! Don't be dead. You can't be dead. Come alive, Rachel!

8) If that machine can do what you say it can do, destroy it, George! Destroy it before it destroys you!

9) Ask any dope rat where their junk sprang and they'll say they scraped it from that who scored it from this who bought it off so and after four or five connections the list always ends with the Pin. But I bet you got every rat in town together and said 'show your hands' if any of them've actually seen the Pin, you'd get a crowd of full pockets.

10) First rule of leadership: everything is your fault.

My first instinct was The Borrowers, but as you said it was never released on DVD, I knew that couldn't be it, so here I sat, pondering, digging through the lost chapters of empty memories-- then something struck me, a faint bell ringing, if you will... "They tap dance not, neither do they fart..." Suddenly and vivaciosly,  miniscule flashes of an animated film.. But what were these images of? Suddenly my thoughts became much more clear and organized, and I knew I had it. This film that had eluded me, a title that was just beyond reach..

Anywhoser, the movie was Twice Upon a Time.

My turn again!

Why waste those cute little tricks that the Army taught us just because it's sort of peaceful now.

Whaaa...??? I LOVED Uncle Buck. No, I didn't forget UB, but I *did* forget Spaceballs. Sure, UB wasn't Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, but still a pretty darn good movie. While it was very representative of the cheezy, campy, predictable John Hughes flick of the genere, and granted it WAS the first of the John Hughes "formulaic, coming of age" teenie bopper flicks, I still loved it. Maybe it's because Macaulay Culkin was still a cute little kid. Dunno.

As a side note, I do mark Uncle Buck as the beginning of the end for JH. From this point on, I feel he put too much "fingerprint" on the movies he was associated with - too damn "family friendly". Before? mmm... not so much.

"The moose out front shoulda told you." I love that line!

It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

I liked UB because he didn't take any crap from "Bug". And I loved his car. Bang!!

"The Pope may be French but Jesus was English, Your On"

There is one that might not be obscure but wasnt said by the lead character so it might be a little tougher. If this thread picks up some steam than Ill start breaking out some really hard ones, I have at least one that I am saving for now

A Knights Tale... The character was Roland as played by Mark Addy, who brought us other gems such as,  Around the World in 80 Days, The Time Machine, and my personal favorite role was his character "Bill" in the TV series, Still Standing, where he played the quintessential sitcom father figure..

Here we go again Haem, had movie night with some friends last night and picked up these beauties:

1) Here cousin. Looks like you could use a swig of this. It's good for what ails ya.

2) Wait a minute! I sawed off this head and you're not even gonna use it?

3) One thing I've learned in the last seven years, in every game and con there's always an opponent and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter so you can become the former.

Have at!

Never saw Knight's Tale... Didn't have that one at all.

First one... I'm lost. Nothin.
Second one... 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag. LOVED it. Joe Pesci as Tommy Spinelli! He's a favorite actor of mine. "I fit in better'n you. (At) least I'm wearin' cowboy boots!" LOL
Third one... (And I'm not sure of this one - I'm at work, so no way to confirm...) Revolver? It's been a while since I saw it, but that sounds about right.

Ahh, the first is my child-hood favorite, The Rescuers. Number 2 definitely is 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag ( 1 of 4 David Spade roles I didn't hate). And Numero 3 is in fact Revolver.
