Things that happen when you watch too many movies



MR and I are often found of a weekend on the couch watching a movie. We have 4 drawers full and overflowing of movies and 2 shelves of TV shows on DVD.  MR likes to watch movies to unwind after a busy week working way too many hours and I like to feel like I am efficiently and productively multitasking by watching TV and crafting at the same time.*

While we may or may not be as bad as some when it comes to movie quotes making up a part of your everyday conversation, we do have a few we use on a regular occurrence.

I'm not going to tell you what they are right away, but I will put them down the bottom.  It's always nice to have a guess and feel excited if you know what movies they are from.  Well, I think so anyhow.

"Aziz, light!" or just "Aziz!" (mainly when I don't turn the bedside light off because I'm not ready to sleep but MR is.  And it is ALWAYS me who is never ready to sleep.)

"Llama face"

"ChickUN"

"Uno mas"

"Iiiice" - this one originated whilst in New Zealand and was shouted by the first person to spot the latest ice capped mountains of the day/hour. Needless to say, it got a lot of use in the South Island during our October holiday and caused much hilarity. 

I don't actually use this one but it is my all time favourite movie quote: "I shall go down in history as the man who opened a door!"

And MR, his brothers and friends have a habit of quoting Team America sayings to each other as greetings on the phone. I haven't seen it though so it loses a bit in translation.



So how did you go?  Did you recognise any of the movies?  Are any of them your favourite movies as well?

"Aziz, light" - The Fifth Element
"Llama face" - The Emperor's New Groove
"ChickUN" - The Fifth Element
"Uno mas"  - Shangai Noon
"Iiiice" - Cool Runnings
"I shall go down in history as the man who opened a door!" - Ever After




What movie quotes make it into your everyday conversation?
  
 


* I've somehow almost completely fooled myself that TV watching and craft doing simultaneously does equal efficient productiveness so please don't tell me otherwise.

I'm no good at quotes or lyrics, somehow I regularly stuff 'em up.
Of course watching TV & crafting is productive time!

Loved your list.

I have to knit while I watch TV or movies. Its part of the relaxing process. So much so we went to a music concert on Friday and I could barely sit still without my knitting!

I didn't know any of these quotes!

I'll have to have a think about the movies we quote... mostly we quote odd people we've seen on the news, youtube, or comedy shows.

I like The Fifth Element, though I am more likely to say 'Could it BE any more ...' as Chandler from Friends. I watch way more TV than film!!
