Nearly every minute is quotable and it's ultra-geeky.

Ah well, listmaker was not brought upon this world to get it!

Your women. I want to buy your women. The little girl, your daughters... sell them to me. Sell me your children!

We have both kinds. Country AND Western

Do you have a miss piggy?

It's been a while since I've seen Holy Grail. How bad is it for a smart 8 year old to watch? I know I'd have to skip over the spanking castle scene but other than that how is it?

Would you even have to skip that part? I would think that that would go right over the head of an 8 year old (of course I don't really spend any time with 8 year olds, but that'd be my impression).

"...and then the oral sex".

He may have a point.

8 years old, dude


Hmm, well crap, I forgot that part.

Yeah, they really should have made this list at least 50 movies long. Us geeks have an unusually large storage space for things like this that enter into our lexicon.

Also, I give you this:

I'm afraid I can't do that, Dave.

RexTalionis: As I grow older, I've come to realize that Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a really mediocre movie that's nowhere as funny as all the people who tediously quote lines from that movie back at me think it is.


To be fair, its decades old. Came out in 1975, the fact that it can still make lists and be funny compared to everything that came after it ....remains impressive.
 
2012-06-01 09:02:55 PM
Totally with you. Monty Python's entire body of work was essential to me when I was 14. But now... it's kinda hard to re-watch lots of it.

you die, you die and go to hell

As dated as that movie is I still enjoy it, but there aren't a whole lot of quotable lines from it.

Iron Maiden? Excellent!

For me, it's Fight Club, although that's chalked up there with some of the other quotable films as questionable in terms of geek cred.

"In the event of a dildo, it is the company policy to never use the indefinite article 'a dildo' rather than the definite article [looks at the narrator] 'your dildo'."
"I don't own a di--"
"Shhh."

"The first rule of Fight Club is that you do not talk about Fight Club."

"I want you to hit me as hard as you can."

"His name is Robert Paulson."

"He was the guerrilla terrorist of the food service industry. Apart from seasoning the lobster bisque, he farted on meringues, sneezed on braised endive, and as for the cream of mushroom soup..."
"Go on, tell 'im."
"You get the idea."

"It was beautiful. We were selling rich women their own fat asses back to them."
 
2012-06-01 09:52:55 PM
RoboCop also has geek cred and a lot of quotable lines in it.

"I'd buy that for a dollar!"

"Dead or alive, you are coming with me."

"Drop your weapon. You have fifteen seconds to comply."
"I think you better do what he says, Mr. Kenny."
[Mr. Kenny drops the gun]
"[roars] You now have ten seconds to comply."

"Biatches, leave!"

"Somewhere, a crime is happening."

"Come quietly or there will be...trouble."
"Aw, fark you!"

"Your move, creep."

Shadow Blasko: List COMPLETELY fails without Lebowski, (Although, it is debatable if that is a "geek" film, it is still quite often quoted by geeks. Any movie that makes cameos on Power Puff Girls and My Little Pony has got to have some serious geek cred) Office Space, and last but CERTAINLY not least...

Okay, not "for geeks" per se, but still imminently quotable.

I'm sure WarGames has made the thread already, but I have to add a few more:


"He's intelligent, but an under-achiever; alienated from his parents; has few friends. Classic case for recruitment by the Soviets".

"Nature knows when to give up, David. "

"A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess? "

"Confidence is high. I repeat, confidence *is* high"

pretty much this. Hell, maybe it was because I heard the whole movie quoted verbatim by dozens of different people, but I never saw what the big deal was with the movie. I would pay to never ever hear another person quoting Holy Grail.

The wife and I are constantly quoting Kevin Smith movies at each other. Not a day goes by that "I'm not even supposed to be here today!" or a "All at once" kind of quote goes unheard.

lerxst2112: Ok so I'm not on top of things when it comes to comics and such, but watching that Avengers clip I gotta ask. Has Dr. Banner always been able to turn into the Hulk as quickly as he did in that clip? Again, I don't know.


The short, minimal spoilers version: Banner usually struggles to prevent himself from becoming the Hulk, but that time he wanted to change.

Di Atribe: swahnhennessy: For those of you who haven't figured it out yet, quoting movies is rarely a good replacement for wit. Especially you guys quoting Monty Python. The world hates you.

Ah, no they don't. You do not equal THE WORLD! People quote movies all the time. Otherwise, there wouldn't be this thread. It's a matter of connecting through something we have in common, almost like an inside joke to everyone who's seen the movie. No one ever said it should substitute for actual wit.

And really, your criticism of other people who like things you don't wasn't very witty.


Though we've had our differences, I still heart you.

Di Atribe: RexTalionis: As I grow older, I've come to realize that Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a really mediocre movie that's nowhere as funny as all the people who tediously quote lines from that movie back at me think it is.

It's extremely silly. It's not the only type of humor I like, but it's one of my favorites. I'm glad they used my favorite scene for the clip. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. I mean, if I went round sayin I was emperor simply because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.



A lot of the stuff in Holy Grail is funny because of the way it skewers stuff from history, literature, and British culture - and they don't spoon-feed you a precis of what that is. Constitutional Peasants is mocking both communistic collectives of the time of the movie's creation and medieval communes, which did kick out the nobility and try to knock together rules for running themselves (with varying levels of success). Palin nattering on like that is funny because he's mocking the hyper-legalese of modern communes and the fark-you-ism of medieval communes. And the whole movie is like that. As a straight story, it is butt-fark retarded. Have a decent education and it is somewhat more hit than miss. Have a good education and you can watch it a couple score times and still find a new little nugget of humor - but even then, at least half of Grail isn't funny at all

Of course, taken as a whole, the Monty Python corpus is mostly dross. About 20% is just complete shiat, actively decreasing the good in the universe simply by its continued existence in media. About 50% is just not funny. About 15% would be funny, but they carry on way too long and/or beat the punchline into the ground. 10% is actually funny. And the final 5% is complete farking genius. The problem is that people decide that since the 5% is genius, it must mean all the rest is genius, and then defend the entire body of work like a 12yo girl defending Bieber, which creates the expected backlash. MP was funnier than most, the former members can be funnier than most now if they want, but most of what they did/do isn't - you just have to decide if the gems are worth the digging

While it may be stupid, it's funny because it's unexpected & absurd. The most cute cuddly little thing you ever did see and it's slashing warriors left & right. I love absurdity. It's why I'm on Fark so much.

Conan the Barbarian was a great movie. I don't think it was that quotable, though, aside from his answer to "What is best in life?"

One of my favorite quotable movies: Big Trouble In Little China.

When my friends and I were in college, it was Tombstone

Airplane?
Caddyshack?

Except for list's #1 and #7, I think I'd have a whole new list.

Quotable movie and no Airplane? FAIL!


It's a lIst about the most quotable movies and Airplane is not on the list?
