Useful movie quotes

Oftentimes one finds oneself without the proper quip or epigram for a given situation. In such times, I prefer to look to the arts — particularly trashy movies — for inspiration. Below are my new favorites. Feel free to use them on coworkers and bosses in response to… well anything, really.

  1. “You get out of here! And take your hand with you!” El Mariachi
  2. “Didn’t I kill you already?” Hellboy
  3. “Pai Mei taught you the five point palm exploding-heart technique?” Kill Bill, Vol II
  4. “Yes. We can rebuild. Enlarge the containment field. Make it bigger and stronger than ever! But we need money.” Spiderman 2
  5. “My name… is Alice. And I remember everything.” Resident Evil: Apocalypse
  6. “As Mr. Sloan always says, ‘There is no “I” in team, but there is an “I” in pie. And there’s an “i” in meat pie. Meat is the anagram of team. I don’t know what he’s talking about.” Shaun of the Dead
  7. “Do you think that’s air you’re breathing now?” The Matrix
  8. “Kid? While you were off licking stamps, I saved the world from a Crelon invasion.” Men in Black II
  9. “Oh, for God’s sake! He’s got an arm off.” Shaun of the Dead
  10. “My radio. Aren’t you going to fix it? Nothing ever gets fixed round here. Just a whole bunch of pies and anchovies. Go away. I don’t ever talk to strangers.” Exorcist 3

    Oh, I don’t know rust my man, I think the quote from WoTW the other day comes up pretty well…

    I quote –

    Tom Cruise: Show me the Death Ray!
    Nasty Alien: Yeah, that’s it brother but you got to yell that shit!
    Tom Cruise: Show me the Death Ray!
    Nasty Alien: Louder!
    Tom Cruise:” Show me the Death Ray!”

    now that was a quote


  3. Spud

    Found someplace, but it about sums up how I feel …

    If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I’d carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like “Hey, look. He’s carrying a soldering iron!” and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, “That’s right, it’s a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice.” Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.
