Another that I use frequently (and I have no idea where it's from) is to stand up and announce to anyone within hearing:

"OK, I'm leaving. I've done enough damage for one day."

Paraphrasing from Happy Gilmore:

"That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. At no point in your rambling incoherent response did you come close to anything resembling an actual answer. Everyone in this room is dumber for having heard it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

Dodgeball, Office Space, and Tombstone are also popular.

"Bunch of savages in this town" - Clerks

"How's it going, Eisenhower?" - Stripes (Almost anytime I see one of my bosses in their dress uniforms with all their medals)


I paraphrase from Catch-22:
"Ok, let me see if I've got this straight. In order to not go out on the street, I've got to be crazy. And I must be crazy to keep hitting the street. But if I ask to not hit the street, that means I'm not crazy anymore, and I have to keep hitting the street."

At more than one homicide scene, the words "Well, he died. You don't get any older than that" have been uttered.

"I'm going to live forever, or die in the attempt"

A few from Dr Strangelove as well:
A few good arguments in the Tact Office or bar after work: "You cant fight in here, this is the war room!"

"Well, I've been to one world fair, a picnic, and a rodeo, and that's the stupidest thing I ever heard!"

Billy Madison. But in your defense, those movies (and most of his work) is the same.

Damn, I'm getting forgetful in my old age, missing that reference:

I have used this, to the astonishment of the recipient, who had apparently not seen the flick.

There was a couple I found handy.

"Head 'em up, Move 'em out." One of the younger fellas said 'Cool, that's the Blues Brothers." Although he was close, no cigar..Rawhide.

The other was "The game's afoot". Good ol Sherlock Holmes.

Thank you!

I have (unfortunately) been dealing with someone at work who comes up with "great ideas" (i.e., idiotic suggestions) that would mean more work for me if I listened. Luckily I am able to ignore him. But, the other day, he suggested something and I thought of this. However, I had only heard it once before and had no idea where it was from.

Now, I am going print it out and keep it on my desk. Big Grin

I use this one as well, but I wasn't aware it was from a movie.
