Movie quotes I use that no one ever gets

Even though I haven't watched as many flicks compared to other people, there are quotes I use that in my mind I think everyone knows but nobody does. Here are a few.

"We're goin' downtown."

Every time I see Jim Carrey say this in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, I laugh my ass off.

Not once have I ever said this in the inflection Jim does and had anyone recognize it.

"If it bleeds, we can kill it."

This of course is the unintended star line from the movie Predator. This is a total man movie 100%, and it's eff'ing awesome.

You can only say this quote in very select company because anyone who doesn't know it will look at you like you're a madman.

"Trial by stone!"

This is a quote from the General character from The Dark Crystal and is in fact a whole scene.

You thought Jim Henson did nothing but Muppets? Oh, how wrong you are. 🙂

The race of Skesis in TDC are one of the most unsung movie bad-guy types in cinema history. The sheer amount of work that went into them is nothing short of mind boggling. As far as their characters go, not once in the entire movie is a Skesis ever nice. It's usually the case where a bad guy shows some glint of good-style quality, even if only for a brief moment - but not Skesis. They are bad guys from beginning to end, and that makes for some seriously awesome villain characters.

I think I may have tried "Trial by stone!" once or twice.

Example:

"Let's go to KFC."

"Nah, let's go to Taco Bell."

"Dude, I want to go to KFC."

"TRIAL BY STONE!"

(blank dumfounded stare)

It never works, so I stopped using it.

"WHY THE HELL AREN'T I NOTIFIED ABOUT THESE THINGS?"

Spoken by The Shat in Airplane II: The Sequel. I've used this many times and nobody ever catches it.

"Blinking and beeping and flashing... I CAN'T STAND IT ANYMORE!"

Same movie, same guy as above.

Again, I've used this many times and nobody catches it.

Oh, well.
