FFM: Lines that Make me Smile
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 9:38 am

This week’s FFM challenge: name at least five lines (yes, I went a bit nuts) from TV/Movies that you always find amusing-maybe not laugh-out-loud funny, but that always amuse you.

FFM: Favorite Lines

(For extra-special fun, the sources of the lines are hidden below the fold).

No particular order:

1. “It’s made out of people!”

2. “He’s pinin’-for the fjord.”

3. “I do not think it means what you think it means.”

4. “I was aiming for his head”

5. “Thinking is so important”

6. “To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.”

7. “That’s just sad, Larry.”/”Larry, that’s just sad.”

8. “We are the Knights who say ‘ni!’”/”We are no longer…”/”A shrubbery!”

9. “Those aren’t pillows!”

10. “Hi, I’m Larry, this is my brother Darryl, and this is my other brother Darryl”. (came to mind because of #7).

1. The line is from Soylent Green, but it’s funny because of SNL.

2. A classic Monty Python sketch.

3. Inigo Montoya in The Princess Bride:

[Vizzini has just cut the rope The Dread Pirate Roberts is climbing up]
Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

4. Avon from the Blake’s 7 episode Orac:

[Avon shoots Travis’ gun-arm]


AVON Don’t move.

BLAKE Good shot, Avon.

AVON I was aiming for his head.

5. From my favorite segment from any of the Black Adders’: the start of Head.

6. From the Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy (radio script)-more of the passage here.

7. Ross Perot to Larry King (indeed, it may have been Dana Carvey as Ross Perot, but it really doesn’t matter). The quote is even funnier if one uses a Ross Perot voice.

8. Yes: all quite silly, but Monty Python and the Holy Grail rocks, and the Knights Who Say Ni! are amusing for no particularly discernible reason.

9. Steve Martin to John Candy in Planes, Trains and Automobiles:

[Waking up after sharing the same bed in a motel]
Neal: Del… Why did you kiss my ear?
Del: Why are you holding my hand?
Neal: Where’s your other hand?
Del: Between two pillows…
Neal: Those AREN’T PILLOWS!!!

Source: Mutant Reviewers from Hell do “Planes, Trains and Automobiles”

10. Newhart. “There were these three woodsmen….”

  2. Isn’t it true that everything is funnier if said in a Ross Perot voice?

    Comment by Jan — Saturday, November 12, 2005 @ 10:34 am

  3. True.

    Comment by Dr. Steven Taylor — Saturday, November 12, 2005 @ 10:46 am

  4. I’m still thinking about my list, but I must say, the two Monty Python quotes always make me smile, too.

  5. Favorite Quotes

    Last FFM from Poliblog, which I never got around to over the weekend, was to name at least five lines from TV/Movies that you always find amusing–maybe not laugh-out-loud funny, but that always amuse you.

    Here’s my list (but I can’t do the neat …
