Is Butter a Carb?

Is anyone else as annoying as I am? I quote movies like it's my jay-oh-bee. Job. Over and over again I quote them. Sometimes I just quote them out of the blue because they're on my mind. Other times I tie random phrases from favorite movies into every day life and pretend that they just make sense. Let me dive into a few favorites of mine. 

Mean Girls. I vividly remember seeing it in theaters the day it opened. I was a junior in high school and the entire local theater was packed with kids from my high school, I practically knew everyone in there and we all rendezvoused at Applebees afterwards, quoting it already. Those were the days, right! This movie has no shortage of quotes that also fit into every day life.
"Is butter a carb?"
When Jared and I are eating healthy and I just really want to eat all the bad things.

"You can't just ask people why they're white."
When anyone else says something awkward in a social setting.

"No, I just have a lot of feelings."
When I just want everyone to love each other and get along.

Elf is obviously another classic movie that everyone knows and loves. And I'm sorry, but its not just for Christmas. I typically have to bust it out at least once during the summer for those feel-good moments and to remind me that Christmas is halfway here. I'm obsessed, I know.
"Why's your coat so big?"
Jared and I are both so weird and randomly ask each other this. No rhyme or reason to it, we just do.

"Good news, I saw a dog today!"
Again, no logical reason I should be saying this in every day conversation, but I do.

"Hope you find your dad!"
I say this to people when they leave my house. Seriously, I do

"It's very purpley!"
Anytime someone wears anything purple at all.

Monsters University- such a good animated film. I own a couple of the plush characters and I am not ashamed to admit that! Not quite as quoteable as some movies, but there's a solid one-liner I utilize a lot:

"I can't go back to jail!"
When I think I messed up/did something wrong.

Gladiator- a movie I didn't expect to like when Jared introduced me to it years ago, but man, I loved it. I have one favorite line from that movie:

"Are you not entertained!"
When anyone is staring at you and its uncomfortable. Just yell that quote.

And I'll leave you with a favorite of mine. Anne Shirley always had so much wisdom and I never get tired of the Anne of Green Gables movies. Tomorrow is always, ALWAYS fresh.

What's your favorite movie to quote? Are you obnoxious as I am by working in one-lines anywhere you can? ;)


  1. This might be my new favorite post. "I'll just be in my car listening to my tuuunes", bahaha! "Aca-awkward"... ;) too many to count. Life without movie quotes wouldn't be the same!!

  2. I love this post :) Some of my favourite movie one liners are "so I've got that going for me, which is nice" from Caddyshack (hilarious movie if you haven't seen it yet)..."love actually is all around" from Love Actually (best movie ever ;)) and "As you wish" and "inconceivable!" from the Princess Bride :) My husband also often quotes 300..."For tonight we dine in hell!" hahah

  3. Oh man. You and JC would get along well. He always quotes movies and then has me try to guess what movie it's from and 9x out of 10, I have no idea because a) I don't remember movies that vividly and b) I haven't seen THAT many movies, compared to him.

    I do very much enjoy this post though! JC and I say "Bye Buddy. Hope you find your dad." in the same (a miserable attempt) voice/tone as Mr. Norwhal.

    I feel like there are a million other ones I could say here, but of course, I can't think of any of them right now!

    I really LOVE that last quote you posted though. So perfect for any day of the year!

  4. Hahaha I totally love quoting movies! Sometimes I don't even know what movie I'm quoting because I've said it so much I feel like it's become "my" quote lol! Hahaha "I hope you find your dad!" I'd die laughing if you said that to me when I was leaving!

  5. Such a great post! Mean Girls and Elf are definitely the two movies that I quote all the time! A couple of coworkers and I will literally just have conversations in Mean Girls quotes and it's amazing!

  6. I've never even seen Gladiator and I quote that line all the time, but Mean Girls is definitely the best movie to quote. I'm pretty sure Jarrod can quote it and he's never even seen it.

  7. I think I definitely annoy people with how much I quote movies as well... especially when they have no idea what I'm talking about *womp womp*. Mean Girls and Elf are two of my favs to quote (whenever people are disgruntled I say they're an angry elf), and Wedding Crashers is my other favorite!

  8. Um, yes to Elf! I like whispering, too. Also, I quote Zoolander waaaaay too much. Way too much. Anytime I quote from a movie Freddie just automatically thinks I'm quoting Zealander. Which means a) I do quote it too much and b) he really isn't listening to me ;)

  9. LOVE THIS! I'm totally a movie quoter, ELF and UP are two of my biggest offenders. I sometimes just say FRANCISCO just because...heeehee!

  10. haha yessss. Doug and I are both big movie quoters....and tv shows- specifically Scrubs.

    Mean Girls is definitely a classic though too!

  11. Hahaha, I love this! You and Eric would get along so well! He's a chronic movie quoter (if that's a thing) and I'm the worst for him because I can't ever remember where he's quoting from... takes some of the fun out of it for him ;)

  12. Well this is just the cutest post ever. And now I want to say all of the things!

  13. Every since I heard that the AofGG guy died, I've been meaning to find the movies and watch them again. I loved them soo much!

  14. It's actually terrifying how often I quote The Sandlot. I think I know every single word from beginning to end and I've become quite proficient at fitting lines into real life...I mean besides the obvious "You're killing me, Smalls." This time of year, I always bust out, "I'm baking like a toasted cheeser." I love that you tell people you hope they find their dad. That's amazing. Also, "Are you not entertained?!" totally works in some situations.

  15. My niece and nephew love Monsters, Inc. They are visiting soon so maybe I'll ask them to bring it and watch it with them. Not sure I've actually seen the movie. I have used the "are you not entertained?" line before. I don't think I necessarily quote movies per se, but Chris and I do have certain one-liners that we use often. They are typically things we've heard athletes say (usually after a big game). For example, "Can't Wait" from Bart Scott after the Jets advanced in the playoffs a few years ago. And "Get your popcorn ready." from something T.O. said once. It's the small things that crack us up.

  16. I am constantly quoting movies too! I can have entire conversations based solely in movie quotes!!! Mean Girls and Elf are on repeat with me, along with Step Brothers "Did we just become best friends?", Hall Pass "Chilis!!! That place has ass on tap." Wedding Crashers - Mom! The meatloaf!" and so many more!!!!

  17. Mean Girls for sure, and Empire Records (obvi). Boondock Saints comes up a lot, complete with Irish accent. I also bust out "Rule #76, no excuses, play like a champion" from Wedding Crashers any time one of my friends wants to bail from a party early. And for some reason, 'It's not a tum-a' and 'get to the chopp-a' come up a lot in my life as well...

  18. ha, I love that you added Elf in here. There are SO many good quotes from that movie--one of my fav's!!

  19. I am an old school quoter - The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Dirty Dancing, Top Gun, etc. Empire Records too. And I always say "O. R. they?" from Rushmore. Out of nowhere, for no reason.

  20. i think mean girls is like the most quotable movie of all time. i totally quote disney movies all the time (the little mermaid, beauty and the beast, tangled to name a few). i also quote 10 things i hate about you randomly. the other day i said 'i know you can be overwhelmed and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?' and KC looked at me like I was crazy. He said 'um.....' and I said 'i think you can in europe' and he was seriously like who did I marry?
    i also quote pride and prejudice a lot. i always say 'dont you dare judge me!' and KC is like I didn't say anything! or I say 'what excellent boiled potatoes' when there are no potatoes in sight. haha.

  21. OMG!! I love Mean Girls! I usually quote any good movie I love like that, Pitch Perfect, lots of Disney movies, the list goes on!

  22. I have this pretty vivid memory of my brother standing in the middle of my grandma's pool on top of one of those floating bed things (totally blanking on what they're actually called) shouting, "ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED" before losing his balance and falling backward into the pool while we all stared.

    This probably won't surprise you, but my family has a TON of inside jokes related to movie quotes. The funny thing is that some of us haven't even seen the movie the quote is referring to, but we all have heard it so much that we laugh anyway.

  23. Oh my gosh, this is great cuz I do this too but typically with any Chris Farley/Adam Sandler movie. However, I tend to use "boo, you whore" often. Ha!

  24. YES! I quote Mean Girls daily. It will never not be hilarious to me. Elf, too!

    My family constantly quotes National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. I'm not sure if you've seen it, but there's one small part where this lady says "Why is the carpet all wet, Todd?" and he says "I don't KNOW, Margo!" The way he says it is hilarious, and we say that to each other all the time.

  25. hahahaha literally quote mean girls like daily. I remember my big brother took me to see it as a surprise and it was the best thing ever! I watch it now and realize some parts might have been awkward to see with your sister hahah I love quoting shes the man, too. that movie is full of genius quotes

  26. YES love quoting movies! Adam and I quote movies at each other all the time! Mean Girls and Elf have so many good ones!

  27. We quote movies ALL the time - when saying goodbye it's frequently "goodbye buddy, hope you find your dad"

    Always, always with the forest gump - can't sit here or this seat's taken (said with the little southern accents)

    When i'm upset about something my son (he's 12) will say to me "if it make you feel any better, I left my reading glasses at home" from Home Alone

    and then the ever popular "you're killing me smalls"

    Sometimes i feel like my life is an endless stream of movie quotes.

  28. You are speaking my language. Another great from Mean Girls..."you can't sit with us!" Classic.

  29. I quote Mean Girls probably monthly. haha! It's too good not to ;)

  30. Love it! My sisters & I quote Mean Girls, Elf, Pirates of the Caribbean, Animal House, Uncle Buck. We love movies; it adds to our bond!

  31. On Wednesdays, we wear pink!

  32. Haha I think of movie/tv quotes all day long too! From Mean Girls, its the pink quote and "the limit does not exist!" From elf, it's "you smell like beef and cheese!" From the Grinch (with Jim Carrey) it's "an awarddddd? for me?" I process employee awards for my division so I think this multiple times a day! Gah I could go on and on haha I love quotes!!

  33. I quote movies and tv shows all the time. A lot of the time I think people just think I'm weird because they don't know that what I'm saying is from a show or movie. This Means War is a favorite for my best friend and I to quote.


Thanks SO much for taking the time to read and comment on my blog! I read each one and love to respond and chat with you! :)
