The Movie Quoting Game

Are you a movie quoter? Even if you’re not, certainly you know someone who throws movies quotes innocuously into everyday conversation. I do. A lot of my friends do, Sandy does. The key to quoting movies is that you never quote the big lines. This is how you pick a faker out. They’ll quote “pool or pond, pond would be good for you.” (Caddyshack)or “he slimed me.” Give me a break. Sandy, Stephe, and I will quote Star Wars all day and never hit on a line that anyone else would recognize. Some days Sandy and I text back and forth random lines from Return of the Jedi, what follows is several days worth of texts.

The shield is down!

Throw me another charge.

Get down here, she’s wounded.

That thing’s operational!

We just have to give him more time.

We’ll last longer than we will against that death star.

i’m endangering the mission, I shouldn’t have come.

I was about to clear them.

parts and technical crew for the forest moon.

Form up, stay alert.

These are actually from my phone, I’m scrolling through the last salvo right now.

There it is.

“There it is” That’s an actual line from Jedi, do you get more subtle than that?

Intensify forward fire power!

I responded with the same line because that’s the next line in the scene. It’s ridiculous, isn’t it?

And Sandy responded…

Ahhhhhhhrgh!

Which is the line after that.

And the capper from Sandy.

And while I’m erasing them…

Shields Up Captain?…The Shields are down?…Well raise them!…I can’t!…Botany Bay…He put things in our ears…So it could disguise itself as a pack of cigarettes?…Chemicals, moving parts…she’s a total loser…she’s not my mother TODD…what’s the dog’s name?…your foster parents are dead…she stabbed me in the kneecap with my pen…hahaha Bay 12!…thought you never missed…yeah, Bishop should go…mostly…didn’t everyone make it with a beautiful MP last night?
