  1. Empire is the most quotable? Not when you have Princess Bride and Holy Grail on the list. Those two are shear quotable gold. Empire, not so much.

    And Superman II? I don’t any quote from that movie has ever come up in our conversations, and we can use some obscure references. I’d say some re-arranging is in order.

  2. What, no Airplane? That’s movie (along with Princess Bride and Holy Grail) has to be one of my best sources of one-liners.

  3. How could I forget Airplane?! Throw out Supes II and replace, STAT!

  4. Airplane! It’s an entirely different kind of movie…altogether. πŸ™‚

  5. “Run! Run to the choppah!”

    -Ahnold in Predator

    Sorry all, couldn’t resist….

  6. What about Buckaroo Banzai? Geeks the world over still quote that one.


  7. Falls a little bit outside of the ‘geek’ definition, but both Raising Arizona and Oh Brother Where Art Thou are ones that ‘we’ quote quite frequently.

  8. How is Empire more quotable than A New Hope?? I don’t remember when was the last time I said “Luke! I AM your father!”

    While, just today, I said “These are not the droids you’re looking for…”

  9. Is that an African or European swallow?

  10. Superman2??

    Game Over man! Game over! πŸ™‚


    Laugh it up, fuzzball.

  11. Pete, Pete, Pete. You’re Star Wars Fanboy credentials are about to be revoked. All true Star Wars Fanboys know there is no bloody Episode IV or bloody A New Hope. It is, and always will be, just Star Wars, the way God intended before Lucas went crazy, sometime shortly after dreaming up Ewoks.

  12. Yes!! Finally, validation that I’m not a SW phanboi!! Doh! I’m still a geek, though…
