Fun Monday~ Give Me Five!

Thanks to I.T.Guy fvor coming up with a fun one:

Monday is here!And today...I need YOU (yes, the wonderful YOU!) to pick 5 memorable lines from 5 different movies (if you could tell us which character said it and to whom, would be a bonus)...and tell us to WHOM (who in the people in your life) you could have said those lines.

Here are my 5:

"Do or Do Not. There is no Try." ~ Yoda
I say this to my oldest son alot.

"We named the dog 'Indiana'" ~ Dr. Henry Jones, Sr.
I knew when I got a dog, I would have to name her Indiana, and we did!

"Could be worse. Could be raining." ~ Igor, "Young Frankenstein"
For reasons unknown, I tend to say this one alot.

"Yellow means go really, really fast!" ~ Long Duc Dong, "Sixteen Candles"
I'm sure this isn't where this saying originated from, but it's what sticks in my head. Driving in the Banana Republic, you must keep this saying in mind at all times or you'll liable to be rear-ended!

"You can do it!" ~ that weird guy in "Water Boy"...wait...aren't they all weird guys in that movie?
I know, I know...this is a really over-used quote. But IT Guy wanted to hear what we use alot and this one is it! I probably say this one at least 5 times a week.

One more for Extra Credit?
I tend to say this one when people are pissing me off and ignoring me.

Sorry...I actually downloaded sound clips of most of my quotes, but had no idea how to load them here for y'all to hear. I am such a dork sometimes!

If you want to see what quotes other folks have picked, head over to I.T. Guy's site and start clicking on all the links to this week's "Fun Monday" particiants!

So you named the Dog Indy? Funny how all your quotes are from the same time period. Have you heard they are doing a new In Jones movie, I got to see part of the thrid one being filmed, Moab and surounding areas.

Great quotes! Hubby likes to do the Bueller one and my grandma is always saying that yellow means to go very fast. :)

Great picks - I love them all, although I've never seen the Waterboy.

Love your header picture.

Great for a dog. I understand that another Indiana Jones movie is coming out in the spring with Sean Connery too.

Sayre said...

I think IT guy has a wrong address for you. WHen I clicked on it, I went to Project 365. Luckily, I know where you live (in a blog sense).

Love the dog quote. Always makes me laugh!

Great quotes. I love the little wrinkled dude - He is so wise! Enjoyed your FM post. Jennifer

Thanks for the heads up, Sayre! I went on to my other blog and posted a quick note. I wonder how that happened???

janet said...

awesome picks. i think bueller has infiltrated everyone's life!

Faye said...

You're the second to identify the Yoda line--it's a keeper, especially for those with followthrough issues like yours truly.

Patience-please said...

I feel old. (I AM old!) I think I've only seen Indiana Jones of all your quotes.. Better get on netflix! Nah, wait I've seen Ferris and of course Star Wars... never mind!

JennV said...

I LOVE your list of quotes! Hubby and I say the "You can DO It" one all the time! Hope you had a Fun Monday!

Jeanna said...

Fun choices. I'm not sure, but didn't Jeff Bridges say that about yellow means go really fast in Starman?

Jettie said...

Good ones!!!!!!!
I have been using could be worse could be SNOWING one!!!

Heather said...

Igor's "could be worse" quote is definitely one of my faves!

Two from the 80's that always stuck with me:

"Sometimes, you just have to say 'what the f***'"
-Risky Business
"Do you want to play a game?"
-War Games

And more recent movies...
"With great power comes great responsibility"
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return."
-Moulin Rouge
