Favorite "quotable" comedy?

I did this before, thought it would be good here. What's your favorite comedy you quote lines from over and over? One from which you and your buddies could easily act out scenes verbatim. Not to include stand up concert films which deserve a poll all their own. Only had ten spots

Honorable mentions: Princess Bride,Stripes, Spinal Tap, The Jerk, Bachelor Party, Friday, Big Lebowski, Dumb and Dumber, P.C.U, Raising Arizona, Sixteen Candles, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Bad Santa.

Caddyshack is definitely up there.

But The Big Lebowski has withstood the test of time with me and my friends.

I find myself quoting from Super Troopers a lot.

"Do you boys like Mex-i-co?"
"I am all that is man!"
"Yeah, I'll have a liter-a-cola."
"I swear to God I'm going to pistol whip the next guy who says 'Shenanigans.'"
"It's the latest in Afghanistanimation!"
"Say Car Ramrod!"
"Ha, lucky guess. I just lost a dollar. To myself!"

And so much more!

I said Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail.


In fact, this Friday the movie came up somehow, and the whole day me and another guy were just busting out quotes to each other.



"I'm not dead!"

"I told you, we're an anarcho-syndicist commune, we take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week."

"King Arthur: Now stand aside, worthy adversary.
The Black Knight: 'Tis but a scratch.
King Arthur: A scratch?! Your arm's off.
The Black Knight: No it isn't.
King Arthur: Then what's that then.
The Black Knight: I've had worse "

"Run away!"

"Every time I try to talk to someone it's "sorry this" and "forgive me that" and "I'm not worthy"

"Peasant 2: She turned me into a newt!
Bedevere: A newt?
Peasant 2: I got better"


Argh...so many.

Perhaps one of my most favorite:

"Help! Help! I'm being repressed! Come see the violence inherent in the system! Violence inherent in the system!"

The Big Lebowski.

The Dude: And, you know, he's got emotional problems, man.
Walter: You mean... beyond pacifism?

Those are all great movies and excellent choices, but my absolute favorite would have to be Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Caddyshack, Airplane, Stripes, Blazing Saddles, and Holy Grail are all great, quotable movies, but none of them even come close to the quotableness of The Princess Bride.

"No more rhymes now, I mean it!"
"Anybody want a peanut?"


"There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a
pity to damage yours."


"My brains, his steel and your strength against sixty men and you think a little head jiggle is supposed to make me happy? Hmm??"


"I'm on the brute squad!"
"You ARE the brute squad!"


"I didn't mean to jog him so hard."


"Bye-bye, boys! Have fun stormin' the castle!"
"Do you think it'll work?"
"It'd take a miracle."


"Who are you?"
"No one of consequence."
"I must know."
"Get used to disappoinment."


"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."
"STOP SAYING THAT!"


I could go on... and on... and on...

I voted for Animal House, best comedy ever IMO, but I would also have to mention The Big Lebowski. "You got a date Wednesday baby!!"

Me and my friends quote a ton of movies all the time. Some of our favorites include The Money Pit, Ghostbusters, Kingpin, Christmas Vacation, etc.

Couldn't pick a favorite though.

Office Space, Old School, Super Troopers, Clerks and Swingers quotes is all you'd hear on the guys floor in my dorm building last year.

"This is my BOOMSTICK!"

It's too damn hard to vote off of what you listed, why? Becasuse there are great lines in everyone of them and I love them all equally.

Note: This has got to be one of the most heart felt replies in a long time.

Or the edited for television version "This is what happens when you FIND A STRANGER IN THE ALPS!"

Honestly, that's what it is.
