See if you can guess which movie each quote, which I actually got off my phone, is from. Quotes, and the answers, after the jump, but first two funny exchanges with Mark Hanner.

Mark texted: “Baby Okay?” – To which I texted back “Do you hear me Roger Ramjet?” which is another quote from The Abyss. Turns out he wasn’t quoting The Abyss, he was asking if Justin’s baby was okay. And then…

“Say hi to your mom for me.” – In the reverse of “baby okay?” this prompted me to say hi to my Mom for him, but it’s a line from a movie, which one, I forget.

And now, on with the actual texts, what movie?

1) “How were the shoes? Expensive” – Sandy Marshall

2) “Any Cock’ll Dooo!” – Mark Hanner

3) “I know the day it happens” clue: In response to my text: “August 29th, 1997” Believe it or not Sandy and I were texting post-apocalyptic dates back and forth.

4) “Everybody leave microbes and shit” – Mark Hanner

4) “I’ll take a copy of the Beatles White Album and bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia.” -Roommate Stephe

5) “With the new XP-38’s they’re just not in demand anymore.” – Sandy Marshall, and about as classic a Sandy Marshall quote as you get.

6) “Fruit Please” – Mark Hanner, in response to “Spearmint? Or Fruit?”

7) “I’m crappin’ ya negative” – Hanner, a good example of a quote you can slip into normal conversation, and I do.

8) “Why don’t you breast feed, you appear to be capable” – Hanner

9) “I’m Mr. Nussbaum” – Kate James, yes, even Kate and her back got into the action.

10) “I don’t know, he was wearin’ his damn jammies, they had Yoda’s and shit on ’em” – Hanner, if you don’t get this one you’re fired, Schadenfreude.net Reader.

11) “I told you, call me Bronco.” – Hanner, if it helps my follow up text was “My own wife doesn’t recognize me.”

12) “Bad Joke. I made a bad joke. You’re not a Replicant” – Marshall

13) “Bish Hang up!” – Marshall

Bonus Fun: “LIME!” – Sandy Marshall, this is a very small quote from an UNquoted movie. The only reason it’s in the canon is at the last writing retreat we all laughed at how over-the-top Colin Farrel was when delivering it, it’s in the first five minutes of Michael Mann’s Miami Vice, if you ever catch it, just watch for this line, you’ll love it.
