when life can be quoted by a movie line....

Ok, we all watch movies, and there are alway lines from a movie that will stick with you and then all of a sudden...a life moment is perfectly described by that specific line from a movie!! first I will say that there is this movie that was out in the early 80s....Mr. Mom, with Michael Keaton and Terri Garr... and in this movie the dad ends up staying home when the wife finds work in a rough economy -- sounds familiar these days but that is not my point... so the other day my husband, me and the kids were in a Target store and my hubby had bought the kids a pretzel and a pop... now I really probably dont need to finish this story...however, the mess the kids made and eventually the pop ended up "splat" in one aisle.... I laughed so hard as I walked away saying "Irv...clean up on aisle 7".....as it was it was early enough in the day that the store was very slow...so we were able to find someone to clean it up. So I thought maybe you have a line from a movie that matches something that has happened to you in life?? Want to share your story??

Movie lines become classic lines in life for just that reason, and yes I can think of several times when that happens. one such line comes to mind to describe a friend of mine. Even now thinking of this friend and how I have introduced her to someone new I can hear Rosalind Russell from Mame saying "she's my oldest and dearest friend" It helps that this friend has a Mame like personality. LOL one of the best is "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore" from Network, this happens only a when I am really really angry. Which helps make the anger fade lol because it is just silly to quote movies when your mad. This is a paraphrase from League of Their Own instead of saying "There's no crying in Baseball" we say "there's no lying in poker, only bluffing" And at times when some one I know is being an idtiot I might quote Snaps from the movie Oscar "Poole was right! You are an ox *and* a moron!" For those who don't know the movie, at one point the character Poole is correcting the gramer of Connie's character here is the lines that were prior to the one I quote Connie: Even in the old days he was known as an honest crook. Dr. Thornton Poole: That's an oxymoron. Connie: Gee, you shouldn't oughta said that, Doc. Snaps: Yeah, leave Connie alone. He does the best he can.

yeah, ever since then when someone is called a moron I can't help but laugh, not at the person being called a name but because the dialog goes through my head.

There was this movie I forgot the title, but it's about two best friends that were good in every endevour, the problem is they're too lazy. "You know what's our problem? We can own the world... but It's just boring doing it". Then one day my wife told me nearly the same thing, I work in a multimedia company and I can do nearly 20 projects a day, now it went down to 6. My wife told me "You maybe the best in your company, but you're too damn lazy". I was just giggling when she told me that.

Hey, Well I always remember a huge amount of movie quotes and apply it to my life. Like one day I was on a school trip, and I bought some meat pie for breakfast. Then my brother asked me the quote from Spiderman 3, "How is the pie?" and I of course replied "SOO good!". Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!
