Totes Quotes

“It’s not what you say, it’s the way you say it!” If I had a shiny new, unforgeable pound coin for every time I’d heard that, I’d be a rich, rich man. Trouble is, it’s not exactly accurate is it? Great dialogue transcends both the performance and the film from whence it came and has the ability to infiltrate popular culture and consciousness.

From the endlessly quotable to the words you wish you’d said yourself, every Friday will feature an iconic iteration. So in the words of Reservoir Dogs’ Joe Cabot…”Let’s go to work.”

Naked Gun

From one crime squad to an altogether more comical squad. Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear sets slap-stick super-cop Frank Drebin on the trail of Vincent Ludwig; a man with designs on committing regicide. That’s whacking the Queen, y’all! After plenty of dead-panning, Drebin questions an eyewitness:

Drebin: Now, Jane, what can you tell us about the man you saw last night?
Jane: He’s Caucasian.
Ed: Caucasian?
Jane: Yeah, you know, a white guy. A moustache. About six-foot-three.
Drebin: Awfully big moustache.

Aaaah, every time!
