Movie Quotes

I was going to do a post that was basically going to bag on this insane elderly woman that came into Popeye's Chicken, as we were picking up dinner tonight. But in the end, I found it a little too insensitive for my taste and I bet inevitably that you would find it that way too.

Instead? Oooh, Reel Life Wisdom! Movie quotes that you can apply to your own life for inspiration...or demanding elderly women at Popeye's Chicken.

When you eat at Popeye's, do you dream (dream) about meeeeee?

I think Jack Blades is a Popeye's franchisee these days. I hope he wears a hairnet.

Katie,

Naw, it's one of those stories where you have to tell it in person, to contextualize it.

Becka,

No, Night Ranger, but I did dream about you, until the Missus made me take the shrine to your avatar pic down. I promise I will be good and stay the required two-hundred feet away ; )

They're chickens, you dolt! Apart from you, they're the most stupid creatures on this planet.

"Mrs. Tweedy," eh?

First, turkeys are even more stupid than chickens, seeing as you could actually teach a chicken how to play tic-tac-toe. Second, the Missus would explain to you that I have a license and can type on my own, on occasion. Thus, that puts me further up the food chain and the intelligence scale.

If only the real Miranda Richardson would heckle me. Sigh

Begone with you, before I cover you in cheese and sic Grommett on you.

Al,

I've never heard "Psycho Chicken," I did hear "Psycho Kitty" though.

Back in 1979 Psycho Chicken was the most requested song on the radio station I worked for (WBLM in Maine) and we didn't even play the song it was parodying (Psycho Killer by Talking Heads).

Eric,

Was "Psycho Chicken," strictly an east coast phenom? I don't know, I didn't listen to Dr. Demento in '79. Was that a college station? Because I can't imagine a college station that didn't play The Heads.

Angel,

From "Pulp," "I love you, Honey Bunny."

From "Beetlejuice,"

"Ah. Well... I attended Juilliard... I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT... NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY... NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I'm qualified?"

I had to look it up, but I used to be able to do it verbatium and almost pitch-perfect.
