MOVIE LINES–80s week

My sweet hubby chuckles when we watch movies together. I tend to finish the lines before the actors do on some of our favorite 80s movies. I love it. It might have stemmed from my working at Mr. Movies when I was in high school. We had movies running all the time, but I couldn’t watch them since I was working. So I listened…learned a lot of lines that way.

These are just a couple of my favorites:

The Terminator: “I’ll be back.”  Did you notice that he says that in other movies too? Commando he says, “I’ll be back, Bennett.”  The Running Man, he says, “Killian, I’ll be back.”  He says it in quite a few more of his movies.  CLICK HERE if you wanna see.

Revenge of the Nerds: “We love you when you’re mad.”  They holler that out after the panty raid scene. It’s a naughty scene, but that line cracks me up.

Sixteen Candles:    “Quiche? How you spell.”  “You don’t spell it, son, you eat it.”  Remember this part? They’re eating at the dinner table all staring at Long Duck Dong while he eats dinner using a spoon and a fork as chop sticks?  That scene cracks me up.


What are some of your favorite scenes from 80s movies you like?

  1. Ohhh…I could go on and on. I’ll restrain myself and focus on “Better Off Dead,” John Cusack’s first starring role. It’s not as morbid as it sounds! Bad 80s writing, but hilarious.

    Scary Paperboy (collecting subscription $): “Two dollars. Cash.”

    Charles: “I’ve been going to this high school for seven and a half years. I’m no dummy. I know high school girls.”

    Lane: “Two brothers… One speaks no English, the other learned English from watching ‘The Wide World of Sports.’ So you tell me… Which is better, speaking no English at all, or speaking Howard Cosell?”

  2. oh, I thought we were talking about my fav 80’s movies. Not movie lines….hmm, that will take more thought.

    Ok, the best line in the movie is right before Navarre kills the bishop but probably would not be recieved well here, lol.

    So, the next line I can think of off the top of my head is this one:

    “Did you know hawkes and wolves mate for life? The bishop didn’t even leave us that. Not even that.”

  3. Travis….Your post came in as I was doing mine so I didn’t see it when I did mine. Talk about timing, eh?

    Yeah, Bill and TED….. that’s a great one! Only seen it once, but yeah, was a good one.

  4. Billy. OH I LOVE that scene. I LOVED Marty’s character. Such a loveable freak. NICE

    Kat. Yeah, Revenge of the Nerds is a bit naughty, but hysterically funny. Creative. I mean really, we could NOT get away with half of what they joked about nowadays. My fav is when they are shutting the lights off, saying goodnight (in the gym still) and booger lets out this righteous belch. It was GREAT!!!

    Gzusfreek. Girl, I LOVE the Goonies! Oh, and Lost Boys. I’ve watched is a zillion times. Haim does crack me up. I’m always like “GO GRANDPA!!!!” at the end. NICE!!

  5. OMG. LR you are going to be so sad you brought the subject of the ’80’s up. I could talk about it forever!

    The Goonies!
    Raiders of the lost ark
    War Games
    The Wall
    Mad Max
    Young Guns
    Amadeus (Antonio Salieri’s insane jealousy still haunts me.)

    And, my very favorite of all time:
    The Lost Boys -Haim and Feldman were hilarious, and it was then I first fell for Keifer Sutherland (the crush was solidified once seeing him as the poetic, writing cowboy in Young Guns)

  6. Oh, I got into so much trouble watching Revenge of the Nerds when I wasn’t supposed to. :-I I love the part where the one guy asks, “Why do they call you Booger?” as Booger is picking his nose.

    One of my favorite 80s movies to quote is Stand By Me: “Two for flinchin’!”

  7. Love the scene from Back to the Future when Marty goes into his father’s bedroom and scares him into thinking Marty’s an alien by playing Van Halen and flashing the Spock sign. Hilarious.
