We do too. We looked deep inside our internal lexicons to figure out which are our most "Potent Quotables" (Thanks Lindsey, for the Jeopardy category tribute!)
I have a few movies I quote fairly often, but when push comes to shove it is Ghostbusters that wins the top honors for me. There are a ton of lines from this film but none I use more than...
You keep saying that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.
If something is geeky-related, I usually need to quote The Big Bang Theory where Sheldon says...
Quantum physics makes me so happy. It's like looking at the universe naked.
For me, it's always something Monty Python or Mel Brooks.
Strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government.
'Scuse me while I whip this out...
There are so many quotes I love from Bridesmaids, especially the line when Melissa McCarthy walks into the dress boutique:
This is some classy shit in here.
"I didn't know I was reading your diary I just thought it was a sad hand written book."
Monty Python and the Holy Grail must be one of my most quoted of all time...
"I'll bite your legs off!"
"Fetchez la vache!"
And soooooo many more!
"Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!"
I've been rewatching the Homestar Runner cartoons since the release of the new 'toons, and I'm shocked at how much of the dialogue has wormed its way into my everyday language.
Every time I'm on hold:
Thank you for holding. Your call is very unportant to us
Extremely cheap and kind of janky?
Cheap as Free!
Also, "Tai Chi and Chai Tea space"
and, of course, Butt Dance...
Me, too! Strongbad quotes pepper my speech:
"Leave your belongings under your seat and exit to the leeeeeeft."
Sunday, Sunday, SOMEDAY!
I do say 'email' using his voice...
