  2. "Truly you have a dizzying intellect."
  3. "Yes, you're very smart. Shut up."
  4. "Where was I?" "Australia."
  5. "Inconceivable!" "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
  6. "No good. I've known too many Spaniards." (Or sailors, or whatever...)

  12. "This is true love. You think this happens every day?"
  13. "Goodnight, sleep well, I'll most likely kill you in the morning."

[Update: My husband pointed out that I had the same quote twice. So I changed #12. This should help the attitude problem these quotes seem to have.]

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The first and most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia. But only slightly less famous is this: never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line! Ha ha ha ha ha....thunk.

Hee, hee, hee. Now I gotta get out the old DVD again.

Oh man! Carmen beat me to my favorite quote.

Oh well, kindred spirits tend to do that, right Scone?

Numbers 1, 6, & 8 have always been my favorite. Those, and "It's possible, Pig."

Jen said...

I love that movie!

[i]"You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this: never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!"[/i]

My dad and I toss this around, usually only the first part, so it goes like this, "You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this: Never buy your wife a vacuum cleaner for Mother's Day" or any other thing that one of us has done that seems like a classic blunder...

Nice, I meant to actually make it italics. The new message board for my homeschool group is UBB instead of HTML, and I'm getting all cornfused.

Sigh.

Scone said...

I'm glad other people love this movie as much as I do. You're right, Carmen, you could just go on-- the whole movie is a big string of quotable lines. I didn't put in all of our favorites-- like, "Wait till I get going!", the land war in Asia one (I do that same thing, Jen!), and the "It's possible..." line.

Here's a bit of trivia for PB buffs: there really was a dread pirate named Roberts-- Bartholomew Roberts, aka Black Bart. He was known as the most successful pirate on the Spanish Main, although nobody can figure out how he managed to capture 400+ ships when he was only marauding 4 years. He started as a sailor on a ship called "Princess"-- and that, as Andy Rooney said, is the rest of the story.
