Movie lines you regularly quote but aren't obvious at all.
« on: July 26, 2020, 12:46:04 PM »
I find myself doing Sam Neill's 'DO YOU SEE' line from the end of Event Horizon really frequently, but realised it's actually not even that memorable or relevant. Think I just like Sam Neill quite a lot.

How obvious is Robert Stack's "That's just what they'll be expecting us to do" line from Airplane?
I say that a lot.

Whenever I see a parent trying to reason with a misbehaving child I quote E Murphy from Beverley Hills Cop "might I suggest using your nightstick officer?"

Do you see is from Red Dragon iirc.

Ralph Feinnes gets his bum out and says "Do you see?" to Philip Seymour-Hoffman, who is strapped to a comfy chair in his undies.

It's definitely in Manhunter.  "Mrs McConnell, after her changing.  Do you see?"  But it could be in Event Horizon too, I mean they are three very common words.  Ludovic Kennedy used to use them all the time.  Oh wait that was Did You See.

I say it all the time, because I run the surgical recovery unit in an eye hospital.

Trading Places. Also on that film, if I'm about to board a train with someone I always say, in a Jamaican accent a la Dan Ackroyd "I certainly hope there's enough space on the tray-en for me". Never goes down well. Very strange.

After forty years I still find myself concernedly saying, "Oo, I dunno though." when I have serious second thoughts about something.

"We can't trust him, he's so mauve"

That's not right, and the script online is wrong about a lot of the lines so fuck consulting that but I think from memory Withnail offers him a Sherry and he says "Sherry? Oh no no no, I'll be sucked into his trap. He's so mauve, we don't know what he's planning!"

Incidentally, a friend & I (see what I did there?) insert the word 'see?' onto the end of sentences to copy Withnail's 'We're doing a film up here, locations, see?' but probably end up sounding like we're doing James Cagney.

When I was a kid, every time I walked into the kitchen for breakfast and someone else was there:

"Have you seen Luke this morning?"

Loads.

Anytime I hear "get out of X", like "I need to get out of muddy shoes" something like that, it's immediately followed by "and into a black dress. Tell me doctor. Do you like the circus?" from Batman Forever, which must have got into my head because of the weird lispy dub on Val Kilmer.

Also "of course horse. I was married for fourteen years" which I've half remembered from one of the Hostel films.

Harry Dean Stanton saying "son, you've got a condition" comes up a lot for me to.

Your man from The Thing saying "thanks for thinking about it though", although that might just be something people say generally when someone gives them a quick no.

A Gerard Depardieu line from the fairly forgettable 90s romcom Green Card, which I use after hearing certain kinds of music: "well..... is not Mozart"
