rock on crouton

that's one of my sister's favorite lines. it's funny how we all have our little sayings or inside jokes.
after mission impossible (the tom cruise original) came out when i was in high school, i always used to say to my dad: hasta lasagna, to which he'd respond: don't get nothin' on ya. every once in a while, we still say it. being the only child at home during my jr high and high school years afforded me a lot of inside jokes with my parents. (something neither of my siblings were overly fond of.)
tv has provided hours of one-liner entertainment in my life. i love quoting tv shows and movies, when appropriate (and sometimes even when it's not). i think i learned this from my brother, who used to randomly break out in "moon river" like chevy chase does in cadyshack. every once in a while, my movie/tv quotes get blank stares of confusion, but mostly people at least think it's funny (even if they don't get the reference). it's great when the quote pays off, and someone else picks up on the reference and takes it one step further. the other day, i couldn't help but laugh when c had a great idea, to which i said "good idea" and simultaneously we both quoted joey from friends: not just a hat rack, my friend (pointing to our heads). man that was funny.
not all of my one-liners come from tv or movies. (hey, this doesn't mean i'm unoriginal, does it? i steal material from all kinds of places, i guess).
pitter patter, let's get at 'er : hockey coach
what's up butter cup? : former boss
hola lola; and we laughed & laughed : ex
ya hear me cluckin' big chicken? : college roommate
yeah, dude : kd
shyah : killipino
super-fantastic : current boss

some of my favorite tv/movie quotes, bonus points if you can name where they are from...no cheating:
  1. pond, pond would be good for you.
  2. pivot. PIVOT.
  3. I like you Betty. It's Danny, sir.
  4. say hello to my little friend.
  5. shit twice and die.
  6. well, what are you waiting for? i don't know, somethin' great, i guess.
  7. no, no, no, lie down before you hurt yourself.
  8. 10,000 years can give you such a crick in the neck.
  9. Uh, whose car is that out front? Mine. 1970 Pontiac Firebird. The car I've always wanted and now I have it. I rule!
  10. of all the gin joints in all of the world, she had to walk into mine.
  11. i looked for love, and i didn't find it. but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist
  12. dr rosen. dr rosen-rosen. dr rosen-rosen-rosen.
  13. let's kick the tires and light the fires, big daddy.
  14. wouldn't be any fun if they just fell over with their legs in the air.
  15. have you ever woken up next to someone, where you would rather chew your own arm off than wake them up?
that's all i've got for now. i'll post answers later :)

I know a few of your favorites (and have recently used pivot, PIVOT myself! lol)
My most favorite quotes (since you asked) would be "Stop looking at me swan!" and "Let's throw it out on the stoop and see if the cat licks it up." Using movie quotes is awesome, especially when they fit the context of the moment :)

New layout?

I don't mean to pull rank on you, but Chevy Chase sings "Moon River" in Fletch, not Caddyshack.

As for the others, I'll get the party started and take some of the easy ones:

"pond, pond would be good for you" -Caddyshack

"I like you Betty. It's Danny, sir" -Caddyshack

"of all the gin joints in all of the world, she had to walk into mine." -Casablanca

"dr rosen. dr rosen-rosen. dr rosen-rosen-rosen." -Fletch

Dam 3 times!
I totally debated if "Moon River" was from Fletch or Caddyshack...and in usual form, I chose the wrong one. Thanks for clearing that up (I think you might be smarter than me). Good work on naming some of the other quotes.
new layout, yes. gotta keep you readers on your toes.

Ah Ben...using a Fletch quote to point out the incorrect Fletch reference. Nice work.

"say hello to my little friend."
-Scarface

"let's kick the tires and light the fires, big daddy."
-Independence Day

"Uh, whose car is that out front? Mine. 1970 Pontiac Firebird. The car I've always wanted and now I have it. I rule!"
-American Beauty

I tried to look up some others that I thought were on the tip of my brain (just so I would know) and google didn't even know what they were. I kept finding references to your blog and that's about it so I have no idea what they are lol. well, except for:

"damn, 3 times"
-Austin Powers Uno

Whoops, I meant I couldn't find some. Some I should have remembered, but others came up blank. I didn't eat lunch today, give me a break on the double replying. :)

I wouldn't dare claim to be smarter than you, Ang. After all, I've never fixed a garage door...
