Useful And Fun Movie Quotes

Patterico has a great post on Hollywood quotes that have insinuated themselves into everyday life. Here are some that my RISK* playing buddies and I often use.

The animated feature Heavy Metal is a good source of quotes:

"She dies, you die . . . EVERYBODY DIES."

"I've got an angle."


So is Aliens, particularly Private Hudson:

That's it, game over man!


Speaking of a lack of courage, even the Wizard of Oz has some great quotes:

Whadda they got that I ain't got?


You can say that again.


Monty Python's Meaning of Life has tons of good quotes, but I especially like the one that did in Mr. Creosote:

Would you like an after dinner mint? It's wafer-thin.


Goodfellas, of course:

I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown? I amuse you?


Not to mention the Godfather, which is filled with tons of very famous quotes. This one is less well-know, but tons of fun to say in a Marlon Brando accent (the one guy everyone seems to be able to imitate):

When have I ever refused an accomodation?


*We used to take our RISK playing very seriously. It used to cause crying in some of our younger players and at least one spouse, so we pretty much stopped playing.
