Kool-aid, no sugar ... and other quotables.

I don't normally set out to write a blog post of rambling.
But it's Friday. I've had coffee. I ain't got sh*t to do ...!
(sorry, I can't help but channel Chris Tucker, aka Smokey, whenever I hear the words "it's Friday.")
Craig Jones: We ain't got no sugar. 
Smokey: No sugar? Damn. Y'all ain't never got two things that match. Either y'all got Kool-aid, no sugar. Peanut butter, no jelly. Ham, no burger. Daaamn. 

I love this movie. And Player's Club. Ice Cube was the shizz in the '90's. I could rap every word to every song on that soundtrack, ESPECIALLY We be Clubbin' and Who are You Lovin'! #WhiteGirlRapper

And in case you're just now realizing this about me, I love quoting movie lines. It's my sister's fault. (Thank you, Lisa.) She and I started all the way back in our Little Mermaid Days and it spiraled from there. Not to mention, we love classic musicals so we sang a lot of our quotes. Newsies, (That my cigar? You'll steal anudda'... Hey bumma's we got work to do. Since when did you become me mudda? Ah, stop you're bawling. Hey- Who asked you?) <---For Lisa and a little bit for Matt ;) 

Then there was Oklahoma, South Pacific ("I'm gonna wash that man right outta my hair.") and The King and I. Loved that one. ("Shall we dance?" ba-dum-dum-dum) And the best part was that by high school she and I could have entire conversations using nothing but movie lines, and no one else got it. It was like our own secret language; the 90's kid version of pig latin. Except now, she watches a lot of 'B' movies and quotes stuff that I'm like "WTF is that from?" (Foot-foot, you smell like a paduket. <---for you, Lisa!) and some weird one with Zooey Deschanel and her boyfriend, who always had life-altering relationship decisions in front of a swing set at a deserted park. Then there was the one where the guy had a blow-up girlfriend... Lars and the Real Girl. HAHAHAHA! Yeah, that was a weird one. And those are just the ones I've tried to watch with her. She has eclectic taste. 

OH, and don't ask me what a paduket is. I have no clue. but it must smell pretty gross. Like cabbage or something. 

(Your mom smells like cabbage.) Okay, still channeling my sister. I'll try and reign it in. 

Why am I telling you all this? 
I got thinking about it--and the fact that I probably haven't detailed this habit of mine--because I recently did an interview over at the Readiacs and one of the questions was this:

Tell us one thing about Heather Hildenbrand that we won’t be able to find on the Internet?

You can read my entire answer here, along with the rest of the interview, AND enter for the giveaway. Basically, I disclosed this little movie quoting habit as my answer. And btw- this was prob one of the most fun interview questions I've ever had. Thanks for the opp Readiacs! 

Oh another favorite is The Sandlot. Not just the "You're killing me, Smalls" line, because everyone says that one, but the whole 'mallow roasting scene. "You want s'more?" ... "How can I have s'more? I haven't  had any yet."
("You play ball like a GIRL!")

Love it! 

Oh and the 3 Ninjas ... "Let's murder-lize 'em!" --Tum-Tum
We have all four 3 Ninja movies. (Yeah, I didn't remember there being four, either. Mostly because the later ones weren't good.) My son loves them almost as much as my little brother did when we were kids. 

And then, of course, there's Napolean Dynamite -- the entire movie was one long quote. All of it was repeatable. And everyone repeated it. Especially "gosh" and "I'm training to be a cage-fighter." I still tell everyone my favorite animal is a liger. 

But I think the best semi-recent quotable flick, for me, is Superbad. 

I CLUCKING love this movie.
"Take off that vest, you look like Aladdin."
Hahaha, and McLovin ... "WHAT? One Name? You are you? Seal?"
This one is at the top of the list. 

Now that my kids are old enough to really catch on, they've started doing it, too. (Just not with Superbad. What kind of a mother do you think I am?? Don't answer that... keep reading.) They're not quite on the same level, (yet) but it's there. When they need to say a bad word, they channel Ramona and Beezus and shout "Guts!"  and we've watched Transformers: Dark of the Moon so many times, my 6yr son walks around saying "Deep Wang, Deep Wang" from the bathroom stall scene where everyone thinks Asian-guy is going to whip it out on Sam. Prodigy, I tell ya'.

Obviously, I could go on and on with these different examples, past and present. (As you've probably already guessed.) But instead, I'll end it and ask: What's your favorite movie for quoting? 
Or just post the quote and see if I can guess the movie! 


  1. "dear mr white man, I am so freakin pissed!!" (guess that!) I just spent 45 min typing you the greatest quotes ever only to have my phone switch pages and delete it all!! (my finger works against me with touch screens)

    So now you get one quote "no leroy, im bilingual, theres a differnce!!" If you dont know what that movie is ima come over later and "ima get you high today. Cuz its friday, and you aint got no job, and you aint got chizz to do" ...yeah its NEXT to that :)

    so I did all of this after reading your dmv post while I am sitting at the doc office and a n interesting looking woman walked in and announced her last name was kuntz and me and 2 others stopped to look at her at the exact same time... Made me wish you were here :)

  2. NEXT FRIDAY!!!! woohooo #Win
    And OMG about that name! I woulda' looked up, too, bc I woulda' HAD to know what that person looks like! haha.

  3. "See, y'all Christians is somethin'... y'all go pull out that Bible, but y'all don't know which prescripture to use for which situation. You got to find the right prescripture. There's a prescripture that says, 'Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.' Have you been redeemed by the Lord?"

    No CHEATING and looking it up online! If you can't get it, say so, I'll tell you. I'm honest.

  4. freaking crack me up. Thanks for the laugh. And my movie quote....
    "Run away, or I shall taunt you a second time."

  5. Wow....I was beginning to think my husband and I were the only people who obsessively quote movies to each other. I don't know if I can pick a favorite, but here are a few of the top ones we use.

    "I wanna cut the blonde one! I'm just sayin"

    "Candy stripe a cancer ward, not my problem"

    "Clay: Pooch, can you stand?
    Pooch: Oh. Oh, this is Stupid Question Day. This is Stupid Question Day, and nobody decided to tell me! Naw, that's cool. It's all good.
    Jensen: Come on, Legless Pooch, I got ya."

    "Watch me walkin' away! Watch me walking away from Jesus!"

    My movie selection is probably a lot different than yours since I disliked both Friday and Superbad, but still.

  6. @LucyLou - don't yell at me. or hate me. or call me names in publc... I looked it up. Or, actually, my husband looked it up for me, since we both decided that was a gray area because you never said HE couldn't look it up. =P Turns out, I've never seen that one so I wouldn't have gotten it anyway. Awesome quote, though. It made me laugh. And the answer is Madea. @Anna I don't know for sure, but I am guessing a Monthy Python quote? Not sure which movie, but it sounds like a line from one of them. (What is your favorite color? Blue, no green! Ahhhh!) Love those movies. @Tabby I have NO idea what the Clay/Pooch dialogue is from. HELP me out and let me know! But i *think* the walkin' away from Jesus line is from that Mandy Moore movie, i forget what it's called. Okay, keep 'em coming. And I MIGHT start tweeting this game because it's just too fun.

  7. Okay... I thought of another:

    "Dang! You got shocks, pegs... lucky! You ever take it off any sweet jumps?"

    "It's a liger. It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic."

    " I caught you a delicious bass. "

    haha :)

  8. NAPOLEON DYNAMITE baby! Yes, love this one! And "Tina, eat your dinner!" hahaha
