You Said It, Pt. 1

There are dozens of lines from movies and TV shows that Kristen and I reference all the time. Recently, we attempted to write down as many of these quotes as we could think of off the top of our heads. Then, with each passing day, we would catch ourselves quoting something else and add it to the list.

After a few weeks of compiling, we ended up with a whopping 60 quotes, which we then organized into five categories and divided into two installments. Some are famous. Some are obscure. Some are funny. Some we like to make fun of. Some we have been quoting for so long that we had to really think to remember what it was originally from.

How you say the line is usually the most important part, so I have gone to great efforts to create a sound clip for each quote. Hopefully they will still make some sense even though they are out of context (though a few don't make sense even in context, which is why we find them funny). For maximum enjoyment, try to imagine Kristen and I saying each one.

I see several favorites already listed. I'm surprised to not see anything from Star Wars..perhaps that would be a post of its own (or maybe it already has been)

I also am sad to not see anything from What about Bob:

"mm..Fay, this is scrumptious, is it hand shucked?" - What about Bob

And of course Footloose:
"I've never hit anyone in my life"
"You can't go to the prom without a corsage"

I made sure to include "we're gonna have to take the boy" just for you, Christie.

There is at least one Star Wars quote coming in the next installment. Really, we probably could have kept thinking of more and more quotes if we had continued compiling for a another week or two, but we figured 60 quotes was enough... for now.
