6 Brilliant Movie Quotes that are impossible to fit into everyday conversation.

Its OK I am not descending into a list based blog. During a conversation with my wife this morning I quoted a film that led to truly blank stares. Then I realised just how creepy and out of place it was…

Ben Jabituya: I don't know about you, but I am planning to scream and run.

Never something that you can drop into casual conversation and often the very thing that fails to come to mind when screaming and running would be good. This quote, despite its great humour, is additionally hampered by its mandatory racist accent. Add to  this the chance that the quote receiver may have no idea what you are on about and you have a recipe for true horror. Of course this is from the wonderful film “Short Circuit”

Emil: I know you! You're dead! We killed you!

A wonderful quote from Robocop when Emil recognises Murphy from his more well know “Dead or alive, you are coming with me”. Fiendishly difficult to get into conversation as most persons today tend to be living. While on the subject this line also suffers for the same reasons…

T-Bird: I knew I knew you, I knew I knew you. But you ain't you. You can't be you. We put you through the window. There ain't no coming back. This is the really real world, there ain't no coming back. We killed you dead, there ain't no coming back! There ain't no coming back! There ain't no coming back!

This one needs increasing desperation as you mimic being duct taped to a car!

While on the subject of death another line to draw blank or concerned (and sometimes scared) stares is this “Unforgiven” gem…

Will Munny: It's a hell of a thing, killing a man. Take away all he's got and all he's ever gonna have.

Some quotes, of course, are supremely easy to get into conversation… but its best not to. The following gem from Blackadder the Third got me a night on the sofa…

Edmund Blackadder: If I'd Wanted To Talk To A Vegetable, I'd Have Bought One At The Market.

Of course the ultimate quote to slip into casual conversation speaks for itself. If you have managed this… let me know.

Pumpkin: [Standing up with a gun] All right, everybody be cool, this is a robbery!

Honey Bunny: Any of you fucking pricks move, and I'll execute every motherfucking last one of ya!
