Thursday 13 v.8

Posting early, as I have a sleep test Wednesday night into Thursday morning. I'll visit you all when I wake up! :)

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen of the best movie quotes by CARMEN


  1. Princess Bride: Prince Humperdink: "I have my country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder, and Gilder to frame for it. I'm swampped!" (This is the BEST movie EVER)
  2. Space Balls: Dark Helmut: "I knew it! I'm surrounded by assholes!" (I could quote this for days, but my other favorite is where they're told to "comb the desert" and they literally have combs. Dark Helmut: (in his pith helmut) "Are we being to literal?")
  3. Office Space: Milton: "If they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire" (This movie is funny because it's so true.)
  4. Firefly: Wash: "This is gonna get pretty interesting."
    Mal: "Define interesting."
    Wash: "Oh, God, oh, God, we're all gonna die." (Joss Whedon is a comic genious. Writer of Buffy. I'll have to do a whole 13 on Buffy quotes)
  5. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: Professor Henry Jones: "We named the *dog* Indiana." (Sean Connery and Harrison Ford in the same movie? I could die happy.)
  6. Star Wars: Han to Chewbacca: "Get in there, you big furry oaf! I don't care what you smell!" and, of course Darth Vader: "Never underestimate the Force." (I was a Han Solo girl, thought Luke was whiney.)
  7. Tootsie: Michael: "For I am not Emily Kimberly, the daughter of Dwayne and Alma Kimberly. No, I'm not. I'm Edward Kimberly, the recluse brother of my sister Anthea. Edward Kimberly, who has finally vindicated his sister's good name. I am Edward Kimberly. Edward Kimberly. And I'm not mentally ill, but proud, and lucky, and strong enough to be the woman that was the best part of my manhood." (I can't watch this movie without laughing so hard I tear up.)
  8. Cutting Edge: Kate: "I'm in the mood to kick a little ass." and "Toepick!" (D.B. Sweeney. Can you say 'hello salty goodness?)
  9. Breakfast Club: Bender: "How come Andrew gets to get up? If he gets up, we'll all get up, IT'LL BE ANARCHY!" (I had such a crush on Judd Nelson)
  10. League of Their Own: Coach: "There's no crying in baseball!" (The only movie Madonna ever made that was any good.)
  11. Ever After: Her Majesty: "And while they lived happily ever after, the point is, gentlemen, that they lived. "(Mmmm. Dougrey Scott. Yum - my)
  12. Top Gun:: Maverick: "Requesting permission for flyby."
    Air Control: "That's a negative ghostrider, the pattern is full." (Can you say "volleyball scene"? Did it just get warm in here?)
  13. Princess Bride:: Inigo Montoya Re: Inconceivable!: "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." and "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." (Seriously folks, if you haven't seen this, go watch it!)

WooHoo....I'm first! Great list. I love the quote from 'Space Balls'. That was the funniest movie!
Hope your sleep test went well.
My list is up.

Sonya said...

I love all of them, but never seen Fire Flys or Space Balls.

Carolyn F said...

Absolutely HILARIOUS! Good luck with your sleep study, thanks for the laugh!

FrogLegs said...

I love space balls!!!! Oh, and Breakfast Club-- oh gawlie.. LOL! Never seen Princess Bride all teh way through.. I'll have to try it again... I use to yell "toepick" to my ex. All. the. time. He wasn't amused, but I surely was! Happy TT!

Undercover Angel said...

Great quotes! There wasn't too much in Space Balls that wasn't funny. I hope your sleep test goes okay. My TT is up.

Laura said...

my favorite is always "there's no crying in baseball!" from a league of our own.
My TT about my son's 9th surgery is up.

Chaotic Mom said...

I LOVE the quotes, not just a listing of movies. GREAT LIST! ;)

Elle said...

My favourite is from Robin Hood; Men In tights -

Robin: "...and unlike some other Robin Hoods, I speak with an English accent!"

Happy TT day
Elle X

Wystful1 said...

Oh, there are so many of my favorite movies...and quotes.

An oldie but goodie is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Just one of many from that movie...

with the preceding question "you remember when we were in Denver?"...and Butch C says "Ya, I had roast beef, Etta had chicken, and if I remember what you had I'll die a happy man.".

Oh well...you got me started now. I'll be quoting quotes all day.

My T T is published

Becky, Mom, Mommy, Hey you, said...

OMG my favorite movie is Princess Bride too, I bought it for the kids and still will walk around the house saying 'AS YOU WISH' and of course you have to drawl it out...LOL
Buffy I miss..it doesnt' come on over here...plbb
Top Gun..ahhhh

Natsthename said...

I LOVE PRincess Bride!!! Thanks for making me smile before work today!

"D" said...

"Mawwwidge..." and "toblaave! he said toblave and we all know that toblave means to blame!" LOVE your list! Mine are up too...

Tanya said...

The Princess Bride - one of my favourite movies of all time!!!

My 13 are up.

Angie said...

That was great!

Lazy Daisy said...

Oh my goodness, are you ever from my tribe and from my clan. I know every one of those lines by heart! My TT is up and I'm back in the daisy patch.

twiga92 said...

Great list! There are so many great Star Wars quotes. I prefer Han Solo myself.

Lisa said...

Breakfast Club - there are so many times I find myself quoting that movie!

Spaceballs - I haven't seen that in SO long. I know we went to the theater to see it. Gotta love those slapstick movies!

I must be one of the 1% who has never seen Princess Bride. I know, I need to.

Denise said...

I haven't even seen most of those movies. How sad is that?

My 13 are up.

Mandy said...

Great listings! I remember the Star Wars one well :)

While I'm here, just gotta mention that little cat video on your blog, it's soooo sweet, that poor kitty LOL

Mandy :)

Moogie said...

You have some really good movies on this list. Some of them I haven't seen but am going to have to check out.

My TT is up!

colleen said...

Wow...did that take some research? It's a great idea. I got a great line from the new show "Old Christine." She and her new boyfriend were kissing on the porch and he asked her if she wanted to go inside and sit down and she said something like "no, I like standing up and kissing when I sit down I get that roll over my stomache!" Not as funny as when she said it.

Mine are posted.

Karen said...

we can have entire converstions of Princess Bride quotes! good list.

May-B said...

I love it!! You and I quote most of the same movies. So good! Great list.

Ames said...

thanks for dropping by my T13 - I absolutely love this list...but you can't forget.

So I married an axe murder:

"would you look at the size of it, it's like an orange on a toothpick...I think I might have gone a little too far....aigh, he'll be crying himself to sleep tonight on his HUGE pilla"

hahaha!

Sheri said...

Ohh...I love nearly every movie you mentioned.

We are big quoters around here too...my husband tends to say "As you wish" to me a lot (Princess Bride) and of course "Oh Look, Frost!" he he.

Oh, and total Han Solo girl here too. And Toepick...and and and...

Daydreamer of Oz said...

Great quotes. Especially love the one from Office Space :)

mar said...

Haven't seen all of those movies but I loved your quotes! what kind of a sleep test are you doing??? happy thursday!

PresentStorm said...

what a cool idea for a TT list and OH YEAH on the Judd Nelson!!! I LOVE that movie :)

Strong Enough said...

Great list! I have to say that I will be one of the firsts that DIDN'T watch Space Balls.

Mom Nancy said...

I am a Joss Whedon "groupie." My daughter is a Star Wars geek (okay, me, too) but we both agree that if Joss had written the dialogue for the Anakin/Padme romance it wouldn't have sounded so DUMB! (I'm a romance writer so it bugs me doubly!) My daughter also LOVES Princess Bride and has a T-shirt that says, "My name is Inigo Montoya...Prepare to die." (whole quote) My husband learned how to say that quote in German when we lived over there.

Great list.

Thanks for visiting my list.

Nikki said...

I read the Princess Bride not too long ago and I couldn't stop giggling whenever IƱigo Montoya kept saying "You killed my father. Prepare to die". I'm not really sure why. I guess I'm just weird that way. Thanks for visiting my blog by the way :D

Trinity13 said...

I love Office Space...I watch it when I need a good laugh.

And I also adore Firefly...and would love it if you did a Buffy quote 13 sometime!!! Very cool!

Amanda said...

The Princess Bride is one of my favorite movies of all time - thanks SO MUCH for making me laugh so hard this morning!

My 13 are up, too.

Melli said...

LOL Carmen! (we both did quotes today - mine are not movie quotes!) This is a GREAT list -- I DO love Princess Bride! I haven't seen all of your movies, but they sound like they're all funny ones! I guess I'll get around to them one day... in my old old age!

Chi said...

I think the only movie I've seen on your list is Star Wars but several sound very interesting.

Thanks for visiting my TT & for trying to guess my real name...it isn't Marcia but it was a great choice. *s*

Shalee said...

You have several of my favorite quotes/movies listed here... I use the "Inconceivable" and "I do not think that means" lines a lot. And I throw in the Billy Crystal and Carol Kane lines too for good measure.

Cat Lady said...

LOL You are right... great minds think alike. I love those quotes. There are just too many great movies and movie quotes to limit it to just 13. My husband and I both love Princess Bride, too. We quote movie lines every day in every conversation. It's become a game to see where we can work them in, and if the other will even notice.

feedscott said...

Office Space: Milton: "If they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire" (This movie is funny because it's so true.)

That movie is rated R so my spouse does not approve. But, I love that movie!

pvtB)fs

Kel said...

I love those movies.

Another funny line is in Firefly when the Captian says that they will experience turblence and then maybe explode. (not the total quote, as I'm going by memory here.)

Oh and I also loved the whole Walsh Dinosaur scene too.

Office space is the best. We recently kept getting moved around a lot at work so I printed out a picture of Milton and his stapler and put it outside my cube. I had a lot of visitors for a long time. LOL

I could go on and on but I'll spare you. Happy Thursday!

Dorothy said...

I'm a quoter too. Love your list

Susie said...

#11 is my favorite movie of all-time. I could watch it over and over and over!

ivoryfrog said...

great idea for a T13!
Hope your sleep test went well. :-)

Happy Thursday!
Take Care
Ivoryfrog x

Mouse said...

I don't know about you, but Fezzik was my favorite character in "The Princess Bride."

"I am the dread pirate Roberts. But soon you WILL NOT BE HERE!"

I've only seen "Princess Bride," "Star Wars," "Indiana Jones," "Ever After," and "Cutting Edge," but very good list this week. We're both on a quotes kick.

Mine are up!

Faith said...

what a great list. Office Space is so weirdly funny. It cracks me up!

Thanks for visiting my T13.

Froggie Mama said...

Great list!! :) I've actually seen every one of the movies you listed! And I'm a huge fan of Princess Bride! :) Thanks for visiting mine!

Geggie said...

From Spaceballs I also love, "It's my industrial strength hairdryer, and I. Can't. Live. Without it!

Yes, I love Burt's Bees. Thanks for stoppin by my TT.

Norma said...

Some funny lines, and I've only seen a few of them. Especially enjoyed Tootsie.

Thanks for visiting my TT.

Lifecruiser said...

I just say: Tooooootsieeee *LMAO* Hilarious movie. Can see it over and over again.

la la la I can't hear you said...

Thanks for visiting Lam(b). I love the Princess Bride. I like in Ferris Bueller's day off, when the waiter doesn't believe Ferris is "The Sausage King of Chicago" And Ferris goes, "Are you suggesting that I'm not who I say I am?"

Also the Pathetic and sad but true, line, I think that is also the breakfast club.

Alexia said...

GREAT POST!!! Made me relive all those movies for just one instance. Thanks.

Mrs. Fun said...

LOVE Office Space, great movie. I also liked League of their own. The other movies bore me,lol.

Most of those 7000 are PJ songs,all their live concerts they release.

Susan said...

I did the sleep test last year....interesting for sure.

These are great movies. Thanks for stopping by.

Goofy Girl said...

I love Spaceballs!!! Great movie

The Shrone said...

All excellent quotes! We share the same tastes in movies!

Karen said...

Office Space absolutely rocks!! People always look at me weird when I say that. It's nice to know there are other OS people out there. *grin*

Amy said...

I always love reading your blog! They always make me laugh. Love love love office space!!!

Sleeping Mommy said...

You have some of my absolute favorites. Princess Bride, Office Space, and League of their Own are all quotes used regularly in this house.

Also Tommy Boy "Did I hear a niner in there?"

Sarah said...

Ooh, good movies. I love Office Space, Princess Bride, Spaceballs, and Firefly too... Just did my first Thirteen so I am going to look at other people's! I am going to be shopping my NaNo manuscript this summer, so good luck and I'll check back to see how yours goes.

Angel said...

AWESOME quotes--you will have to let me know when you do the Buffy quotes!!! (Good idea btw!)

LOVE LOVE LOVE Princess Bride (have you read the book?)

I never get tired of Tootsie! And I just had to say "toepick" outloud ROFL

Anonymous said...

LOL good ones Carmen! Gave me an idea for a T13 but I'd have to watch them all again is my memory has gone mush! I'll have to watch Space Balls again!lol -Erika

Francesca Gray said...

Very funny. Enjoyed the 'reminders', I'm not very good at remembering quotes.

Dariana said...

I loved the Breakfast Club and I had a crush on Judd too, lol.

TLC said...

Love your list. Those are all very funny movies. Office Space just keeps getting funnier as you watch it.

You might try Kevin Smith movies. There is profanity, but they are so funny. Especially if you love snappy dialogue. Clerks is especially good. And Dogma. Kevin Smith ranks up there with Joss Whedon and Aaron Sorkin, in my book.

Mary said...

A League of Their Own

I loved that movie!

Thanks for stopping by!

Heather Smith said...

Great list! I love The Princess Bride! Thanks for stopping by my 13!!

R said...

Princess Bride--cute little Fred Savage.

I call my neighbor's older brother "Farmboy," but I'm pretty sure he's not my True Love.

Lisa said...

this makes me miss Netflix. Stop it. :)

Bar Bar A said...

I just love your blog! You are so cute creative! Thanks for stopping by my T 13!

dawn said...

LOL...thank you

Sherri said...

I LOVED your list!! ...great humor in there too :)

Thanks for visiting my TT:)

The Red Queen said...

I love the cat video on the left! My daughter has a huge list of fav lines but then she can remember whole scenes of dialog after one viewing. Thanks for stopping by my TT. Be Blessed today.

The Schooligan said...

Glad to *meet* another die hard Buffy fan. I am not ashamed to admit that there were days when I called into work to stay home and watch entire seasons on DVD. Ahem.

TNChick said...

you all that list movies quotes and such amaze me... i could never list 13 movie quotes. *blush*

me2 said...

ooops I'm a little bit late (76) :)
great ideas for TT
see you later :)

Suzy said...

Yeah, the Princess Bride has to be the most quotable movie ever. (Along with Tommy Boy, of course.)

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

Who doesn't love "toepick?!"

Thanks for stopping by my TT. Happy Thursday!

Uisce said...

Top Gun, was that a movie? sadly I had to erase that classic from my memory and smashed the VHS with a sledgehammer

Reverberate58 said...

Great quotes all of them. Have fun storming the castle!! Thanks for the visit.

Empress Juju said...

Some of my favorites! "Toepick!" Ahahaha...

I also like "The chicks can hold the smoke.. that's what it is.." from Breakfast Club!

Chana said...

How about...Tombstone...Doc Holiday (Val Kilmer..scrumptious).."There is no such thing as a normal life... just life" and then an interaction between one character (don't remember which) and Doc Holiday: "You're so drunk, you probably see double." and Doc Holiday wittingly remarks, "that's okay, I have a gun for each one of you."

YellowRose said...

I agree about Joss Whedon...he is great! Love the Firefly quote and the Everafter quote..one of my favorites!

Happy Thursday!

Michelle said...

I love your list. But I prefer the "anybody want a peanut" dialog from the Princess Bride :)

My TT is up!

Just Expressing Myself said...

There's nothing like a great line - and thirteen of them are way cool.
My own TT is up.
Have a good week.
Take care,
Frances

Rachel said...

Fabulous list! I love all of those movies. I had a crush on Judd Nelson, too, and the volleyball scene - incredible!!!

Karin said...

Princess Bride is one of my favorite too! :)

Master Enigma said...

Movies are such great escapes.

*Skittles* said...

WOW Great list!!! OH and so many have listed their site too. Congrats!!!

Oh I added you to my bookmarks on yahoo. ;) Now I can visit anytime.

Anthony said...

An appropriate quote for your "test"...Sgt. Hulka in STRIPES: "Sleep tight, ladies."

Katherine said...

Oh the one from Tootsie is the best. It just cracks me up!! Thanks for stopping by - we're moving to Chesterfield County in Richmond, some new subdivision called "Foxfield", but since I was there for all of one day, I don't even know where it is!

Libragirl said...

There is not one movie on there that doesn't make me laugh. My nephews 7 &5 quote Spaceballs all the time. They love Pizza the Hut. And Princess Bride. is the BEST MOVIE EVER.

Leesa said...

Love loved #9!!

Angie said...

GREAT list! I LOVED Breakfast Club...I quote that one all the time! :)

Ocean Lady said...

Oh I had a crush on Hans Solo too and Judd Nelson! They were just so bad to the bone! Space Balls is pretty hilarious! I wanna go to Egypt too!!! :)

Cynthia said...

Hi Carmen. I'm new to this TT13 thing, but your list today made me giggle like mad.

My list would definately include Monty Python quotes. "Bring out your dead!!" "Is that an American swallow or a European Swallow?"

And from Star Wars, when Princess Leah says "Can somebody get this big furry carpet out of my way!"

Have a great day.

stacey said...

I LOVE the Princess Bride!
One of my favorite scenes was the wedding scene where the minister says "..and wove, TWUE wove, will follow you faheva..."
My TT is up.

Karen said...

Thanks for visiting my TT at http://ahumbleheart.org/blog/?p=217

eph2810 said...

Oh my gosh Carmen - 109 people linking to your post - wow....That must be a record.
I enjoyed the movie Office Space - poor Milton...
I have never seen Princess Bride. I loved the first 3 (or is it the last 3) Star Wars movies - didn't care to much for the last ones...

Emily said...

I just wanted to let you know that I mentioned you in my TT today. :) In a good way of course, Happy Thursday!

Laci said...

Great list... "Princess Bride" is one of my favorites as well! :)

Happy Thursday!

I haven't seen the Breakfast Club for years, not since my children used to watch it. I loved it then. I must see Princess Bride as so many people seem to love it.

Thanks for visiting my TT.

Joan said...

Thanks for coming by my blog and for the encouragement on my Monthly Marathon.

Froggie said...

I love your list. I haven't thought of some of those movies for such a long time... Spaceballs and the Princess Bride are the best!

Christine said...

The Princess Bride is an awesome movie. My husband and I could watch this movie over and over. His favorite part is when they talk about "MARRIAGE"! Cute movie.
Great TT!

Leanne said...

Uh, do you know you're twelve shy of the number of participants this week? Dannnnggggg....

I love the Tootsie quote - I could hear it in my head while I was reading it!! FUNNY!

Nicole said...

I love the Princess Bride "As you wish..." and "Mawwiage" I also love Top Gun, especially the part where they sing in the bar.
