Like you said, there are SO many to choose from! Like the entirety of "Office Space," for example. But you reminded me of my favorite Austin Powers dialogue exchange:
Austin: There you are!
Vegas Tourist: Do I know you?
Austin: No, but that's where you are -- you're there!

And, of course, I can't leave out the exchange that inspired the naming of my new puppy:
(From The Sandlot)
Ham: Hey, you want a s'more?
Smalls: Some more what?
Ham: No, no, do you want a s'more?
Smalls: I haven't had anything yet, so how can I have some more of nothing?
Ham: You're KILLING me, Smalls.

Current Favorites:
from "Accepted" -
Scene: A college student is wearing a hot dog costume in the middle of a campus quad as part of a fraternity hazing ritual.

Sherman Schrader: Ask me about my wiener!

(it doesn't help that one of the local personal injury lawyers is running a commercial that starts out "I'm Joel Bee-ber..." and every time I want to follow that up with "ask me about...")

and from "Transformers" -
Scene: in a helicopter with military types

Sam Witwicky: So...
Maggie Madsen: What'd they get you for?
Sam Witwicky: I bought a car. Turned out to be an alien robot.
Glen: [whispered] Wow...!
Sam Witwicky: Who knew?

(for some reason that cracks me up every time)

I have never been more excited to comment on a post... I would say about 99% of my everyday conversation is made up of movie quotes. Sometimes I get lucky and the person I'm talking to just thinks I'm actually that witty... No need to inform them otherwise.

*Baxter (his dog) barks at him.
Ron Burgundy: Baxter! What was that? You know I don't speak Spanish!

And lately I've been quoting The Burbs...
Ray: Do you wanna put that back? Do you wanna NOT steal that from Walter's house?


Rumsfield: Ricky! Get that lame-o outta your yard!

(I'll stop. I could go on for days...)

From Good Will Hunting:
Morgan: Double Burger.
Morgan [singing]: Chuck, I had a double burger!
Chuckie: Will you shut the fuck up? I know what you ordered, I was there.
Morgan: So give me my fucking sandwich.
Chuckie: What do you mean your sandwich? I bought it. Hey Morgan, how much money you got on you?
Morgan: I said I'd give you the change when we ordered the Sno-Cones when we pulled up, so why don't you give me my sandwich and stop being a prick.
Chuckie: Well why don't you give me your fucking sixteen cents you got on you and we'll put your sandwich on layaway. There you go, keep it right up here for you, We'll put you on a program. Everyday you bring your six cents and at the end of the week you'll get your sandwich.
Morgan: Why do you have to be such an asshole?
Chuckie: What am I, fuckin' sandwich welfare? I think you should establish a good line of credit. Like how you bought your couch, payment plans. Remember how your mother brought in $10 everyday for a year and she finally got her couch Rent-A-Center Style?
Morgan: Can I have my food now please?
Chuckie: [throws the burger at Morgan] Here's your fucking double burger!

(It's the singing "Chuck I had a double buuuurger" and the "sandwich welfare" that kills me.)

And another from Talladega Nights:
Ricky Bobby: Dear 8 pounds 6 ounces baby Jesus, new born, not even spoken a word yet...

From The Princess Bride...
-Mawige, mawige is what bwings us togevah tewday

From Napoleon Dynamite...
-gym class kid "Hey Napoleon,what you do last summer?"
-Napoleon "I told you, I spent it with my Uncle in Alaska shooting wolverines"
-g.k.c "Really? What did you use?"
-Napoleon "A freakin twelve gage what do you think!"

From a League of Their Own...
-"There's No Crying in Baseball!"

From Dirty Dancing
-"Nobody puts baby in a corner"

One: You guys are killing me.

Two: Fraulein, your comment reminded me that I've never seen Good Will Hunting. Back when it came out, before all the hype, I used to think it was a movie about hunting for sport while keeping a positive attitude. How lame am I?

I have been reading for a while, but can't think of a better time for my first comment than right now!

I, too, quote A LOT of movies/TV. A. Lot. So I'm SUPER excited to share my favorite, which is proudly displayed on my cubicle wall:

From Billy Madison:
Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

And there are SOOO many from Old School, but this is one I quote a lot:
Mitch: I've had a hell of a day and even worse week. And all I want to do is get some fucking sleep.
Beanie: Whoa. Whoa. Why the F-ing? Why in front of the kid? All ya gotta do is say "earmuffs" to him, and you can say "Fuck, shit, bitch."
Frank: Cock. Balls.
Beanie: I'm just trying to make a point, Frank. You don't have to celebrate it.

Oh Man! I, too, could go on Ffffoooorrrreeeevvvveerrr. (ha! that's a good one too!) But I'll stop now. For a while, at least...

p.s. - Kara is soooooo adorable! We can NEVER have enough pictures! (hint hint!)

One of my faves:

From Dazed and Confused:

Wooderson (Matthew McConaughey): Say, man, you got a joint?
Mitch(that freshman kid): No, not on me, man.
Wooderson: It'd be a lot cooler if you did.

Wooderson: That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.

I love that movie!

Happy Gilmore:
Shooter McGavin: I eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast!
Happy: ...you eat pieces of shit for breakfast?
Shooter: ....NO!

Dumb and Dumber
Larry: We got no food, no jobs... our PET'S HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!

Dumb and Dumber (again, because this movie is SOOOO quotable, it's ridiculous. We use this one in our house ALL. THE. TIME.)
Harry: Just when I thought you couldn't get any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!

Dumb and Dumber (okay, I swear, last one! We say this one a lot too)
Lloyd: Uh, what is the Soup Du Jour?
Waitress: It's the Soup of the Day.
Lloyd: Mmmm. That sounds good. I'll have that.

Harry: Yeah I called her up, she gave me a bunch of crap about me not listening to her, or something, I don't know, I wasn't really paying attention.

OH HECK. Just visit this page for the rest of them, hehe: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109686/quotes

This is so much fun.

My all-time favorite, which my dad and I use at every possible opportunity, then giggle hysterically, from FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF:

Ferris's Dad: Make yourself some soup and wrap a hot towel around your head.
Ferris: Wrap a hot towel around my head?

Another great one from RAISING ARIZONA:
Hi and Ed have just brought their stolen baby home and the amazing Holly Hunter (as Ed) looks at him, then starts sobbing,
"I love him soooooooooo muuuuuuuuuuuuch!" Apparently I said this the first time I saw my son. Nice.

I'm going to be refreshing this all day.

Addams Family Values
Little Girl: ...and then Mommy kissed Daddy, and the angel told the stork, and the stork flew down from heaven, and put the diamond in the cabbage patch, and the diamond turned into a baby!
Pugsley: Our parents are having a baby too.
Wednesday: They had sex.

I can't think of my favorite right now, but I just have to second (third?) how much I love the dialog in Talladega Nights. I'm really embarrassed to admit that I've seen it. But it was SO FUNNY.

The scene in "Better Off Dead" when our slacker hero meets the evil paper boy...

Slacker Hero (Lane): Sorry, Johnny, I don't have a dime.
Evil Paper Boy: Didn't ask for a dime. Two dollars. CASH.
Slacker Hero: See... my little brother got his arm stuck in the microwave, so my mom had to take him to the hospital and my grandma dropped acid this morning, and she freaked out and hijacked a busload of penguins... So it's sort of a family crisis. Bye! [slams the door]

It's a pretty solid excuse for any occasion.

This certainly warranted a trip to imdb.com to verify my quotes. The first, from Stigmata...

Frankie (Patricia Arquette): Jesus said... the Kingdom of God is inside you, and all around you, not in mansions of wood and stone. Split a piece of wood... and I am there, lift a stone... and you will find me.

Then from Blade,

Blade (Wesley Snipes): Motha fucka, are you outta your God-Damned mind?!

And finally, from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back...

Jay: "So you like animals, huh?"
Justice: "Sure."
Jay: "That's cool. Even snakes?"
Justice: "Well, you can't exclude an animal just 'cause they're not cuddly. Of course I like snakes."
Jay: "How 'bout trouser snakes?"
Justice: "Ooh, what's a trouser snake?"

And Frema....I'd love to see a Song Lyric BFF one day....some days I feel like I could go an entire day speaking in nothing but lyrics.

Frema, you might actually like Good Will Hunting. I mean it's not going to Change Your Life or anything, but it's a good movie. All the hype about it was kind of nauseating, though.

Austin Powers: Shall we shag now, or shall we shag later? How do you like to do it? Do you like to wash up first? You know, top and tails... whore's bath? Personally, before I'm on the job, I like to give my undercarriage a bit of a 'how's your father'!

Austin Powers: Name? Austin Danger Powers. Sex? Yes please!

Austin Powers: Allow myself to introduce... myself!

Austin Powers: Judo chop!

Vanessa Kensington: That's you in a nutshell.
Austin Powers: No, this is me in a nutshell: "Help! I'm in a nutshell! How did I get into this bloody great big nutshell? What kind of shell has a nut like this?"

This is another one that really, the whole movie is quotable. I get at least one judo chop from Mia every day. It's fabulous.

Also, from Varsity Blues:
Billy Bob: A 10... a 10... a fucking 10!

Billy Bob: [staring at Miss Davis's breasts] Miss Davis, would you go to the prom with me?

Jules: It takes a lot of money to look that cheep.

Jonathon "Mox' Moxon: The male erection. Pitchin' a tent, sportin' a wood, stiffie, flesh rocket, tall tommy, Mr. Morbis, the march is on, icycle has formed, Jack's magic beanstalk, rigor mortis has set in, Mr. Mushroom-head, mushroom on a stick, purple headed yogurt slinger... oh, and a pedro.
Miss Davis: ...a pedro?
Mox: yeah, uh huh.

Charlie Tweeder: [singing] "She broke my heart, so I broke her jaw."

Vegas Vacation

Clark Griswold: [inside the sleezy casino] I need to go somewhere a man can think.
Cousin Eddie: Oh, oh I wouldn't do that here Clark, the stalls are awefully dirty and they're backed up all the time.
Clark Griswold: No, Eddie, I need to be alone.
Cousin Eddie: Oh, oh I see, ya want me to go with ya?
Clark Griswold: Allright,come on.

Since it's been about 10 degrees in Chicago and dry enough to chap your lips in 10 minutes without chapstick, this one comes to mind (and you all better know where it's from):

"It rubs the lotion on it's skin, or else it gets the hose again..."

It's okay to chant this to a 3 year old and a 9 month old after their baths, right??

My fave, fave movie Zoolander:

Derek Zoolander: What is this? A center for ants? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read... if they can't even fit inside the building?
Mugatu: Derek, this is just a small...
Derek Zoolander: I don't wanna hear your excuses! The building has to be at least... three times bigger than this!

I can't believe that nobody quoted The Blues Brothers yet!

Jake: I hate Illinois Nazis.

Elwood: We're on a mission from God.

Elwood: It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.

And, my all-time favorite movie, EMPIRE RECORDS!

[Answering the phone]
Mark: Empire Records, open 'til midnight, this is Mark.
Mark: Midnight.

Warren: Who glued these quarters down?
A.J.: I did.
Warren: What the hell for, man?
A.J.: I don't feel that I need to explain my art to you, Warren.

Lucas: Who knows where thoughts come from? They just appear.

A.J.: What's with you? Yesterday you were normal and today you're like the Chinese guy from the Karate Kid. What's with you today?
Lucas: What's with today today?

Warren: Stop calling me Warren! My name isn't FUCKING WARREN!

Mark: We mustn't dwell... no, not today. We CAN'T. Not on Rex Manning day.

haha - Sorry I posted so many from this movie, I just love it.

Dude, I love this. Thanks to Frema for starting this fun game!

My all time favorite movie is Sixteen Candles. My favorite quote:

The Geek: How's it going?
Samantha: How's what going?
The Geek: You know - things, life, whatnot.
Samantha: Life is not whatnot, and it's none of your business.

Believe it or not, I manage to say this all the time. And believe it or not, nobody ever knows what movie it's from. Idiots.

Oh, I also love "Annie Hall". So quotable.

My favorite from that movie:

Alvy Singer: Love is too weak a word for what I feel - I luuurve you, you know, I loave you, I luff you, two F's, yes I have to invent, of course I - I do, don't you think I do?

I have a few favorites from a couple different movies:

From "Forest Gump"

Forest Gump: "Now, you wouldn't believe me if I told you, but I could run like the wind blows. From that day on, if I was ever going somewhere, I was running!"

Forest Gump: "You know it's funny what a young man recollects? 'Cause I don't remember bein' born. I don't recall what I got for my first Christmas, and I don't know when I went on my first outdoor picnic. But I do remember the first time I heard the sweetest voice in the wide world."

From "Lucky Number Slevin":

Mr. GoodKat: "There was a time."
Nick Fisher (looking at his watch): "4:35"
Mr. GoodKat: "You misunderstood. I wasn't asking for the time, I was just saying... there was a time."
Nick Fisher: "There was a time?"
Mr. GoodKat: "Mmm-hmm. Take Brown Sugar back there, for example. (camera shoots to an elderly woman slumped over the chair) She's pretty fuckin' foxy, right?"
Nick Fisher (disgusted): "She's 70!"
Mr. GoodKat:"If she's a day. But there was a time."

Nick Fisher (after hearing the opening story): "Fuck! Shit! Jesus!"
Mr. GoodKat: "FuckShitJesus is right"

The Rabbi: "I live on both sides of the fence, my grass is always green."

From "As Good As It Gets":
Jack Nicholson's character: "You make me want to be a better man."

Oh my God - the 2nd Austin Powers movie is so quotable. I especially love Dr. Evil and Mini-Me.

Dr. Evil: Mini Me, you hungry? Something to eat? Not even a Hot Pocket? An Eggo?
Dr. Evil: Somebody get the stick! (with Mini Me stuck in the rafters)
Dr. Evil: Throw me a frickin bone here. I'm the boss. Need the info.
Dr. Evil: Mini Me, if I ever lost you I don't know what I would do.
I'd probably move on, get another clone but there would be a 15 minute period there where I would just be inconsolable.

We play this game at work all day, every day!

From Meet the Parents (Robert DeNiro to Ben Stiller): "I have nipples, Greg. Can you milk me?"

From French Kiss (Kevin Klein to Meg Ryan in airplane - Said with French accent): "What do you think? The plane is going to crash and we are all on the ground in a thousand pieces dead? I promise if it happens, you won't feel a thing."

From Love Actually (Lian Neeson 'Daniel' to Thomas Sangster 'Sam') "Are you ready to get the shit kicked out of you by love?"

I, too, have a million and could go on forever! I also love to read the quotes that have stuck in other's minds. My kids can quote Talladega Nights from beginning to end! I'm so proud!

Keep the Baby Pictures coming!!!!

Seriously, no one has done Zoolander yet? Or did I miss it? Zoolander has got to be in my top 5 favorites. And here is why...

Derek Zoolander: I'm pretty sure there's more to life than being really, really good looking. And I plan to find out what that is.
Derek Zoolander: What? Are you here to tell me what a bad eugoogoolizer I am?
Matilda: A what?
Derek Zoolander: A eugoogoolizer... you know one who speaks at funerals.
[Matilda looks at Derek confused]
Derek Zoolander: Or did you think I was too stupid to know what a eugoogooly was?
Derek Zoolander: So join now, 'cause at the Derek Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can't Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too, we teach you that there's more to life than just being really, really, really good looking. Right kids?
Matilda: What time is it?
Derek Zoolander: Almost five.
Matilda: What? Hey, guys, that show is in three hours. Derek is dead unless we get that evidence. Do you guys...
Hansel: Whoa, whoa, easy! How 'bout a "Good afternoon, Derek and Hansel. Thanks for the freak fest last night."
Derek Zoolander: Well I guess it all started the first time I went through the second grade. I caught my reflection in a spoon while I was eating my cereal, and I remember thinking "wow, you're ridiculously good looking, maybe you could do that for a career."
Matilda: Do what for a career?
Derek Zoolander: Be professionally good looking.
(throws model of building onto the floor)
Derek Zoolander: How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read if they can't even fit inside the building?

The building must be at least (pause) 3 times this size!

LMAO OMG, that movie is JUST TOO GOOD. There are so many hilarious lines. ANother good one is The Grinch with Jim Carrey. Some people don't like it, but it cracks me up every time!

Oh oops, someone did Zoolander already. But I clearly did it better. Maybe because I am ridiculously good looking.

The soup du jour line from D&D has made it impossible for me to ever order the soup of the day at a restaurant. I can't say the words "What's the soup du jour?" without dissolving into a giggling heap.

I'm late, and mine isn't funny, but it's from "For Love of the Game" - Kevin Costner has just opened the door to Kelly Preston. I have to paraphrase.

"I just want you to know, that whatever happens in the next ten minutes, when I opened this door and saw you there, my heart...it leapt. My heart leapt."


What are your colors, Shelby?
My colors are blush and bashful.
Her colors and "pank" and "pank".
My colors are blush and bashful, Mama.

No one hit that movie. It's also one that has so many good ones.

From the Princess Bride, the mental showdown between Vizzini and the Dread Pirate Roberts (Westley):

Vizzini-I can't compete with you physically, and you're no match for my brains.

Westley-You're that smart?

Vizzini-Let me put it this way...Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates?



I'm so late on this, but mine is from Anchorman. Well, actually there's several from Anchorman, but this is one of my favorites:

Ron: Do you know who I am?
Veronica: No, I can't say that I do.
Ron: I don't know how to put this but.... I'm kind of a big deal.
Veronica: Really?
Ron: People know me. I have many leather-bound books. My apartment smells of rich mahogany. I'm friends with Merlan Olsen. Sometimes he comes over. It's stupid.
Veronica: No that's very exciting. I'm happy for you.
Ron: Can we start over? Look, I'm gonna throw something out there and if you like it keep it, if not send it right on back..... I wanna be on you.
