Funniest line in the film...


Even after years of watching this hilarious film, I still bust a gut when Glenn Plummer and the other mover are about to try and cross that old bridge and Plummer says "This ain't a bridge, it's termites holdin' hands."

LOL!

The part I always laugh at is when Andy's dog runs away before he gets a chance to name it.. "Hey!! Hey... Dog!"



"I'll bet you never smelled a real school bus before"

"You know it, and I know it, Yellow Dog doesn't know what town he lives in!"

Help control the pet population, have your pets spayed or neutered.

The little old lady in the antique store:

"That belonged to my sister ... she's dead. We were very close ... this cup is all I have left to remember her by. Everything else was lost in the explosion."

SO GOOD!!

"They're thinking of buying the house."

"Oh, is that so? Well you won't regret it. But, uh, I'm REALLY gonna be SAD to see the Farmers go! HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH"

And for the silver medal:

"How'd you know my name was Mac?"
"Just a guess."
"Then why don't you guess yourself to Redbud?"

DON'T FORGET YOUR PAL ANDY!

"Your not knocking him out your beating the piss out of him"

"By the time he gets to your place he is pretty much liquored up and pissed off"

"You sure do have a taste for testicles"

"What's that, is he alive?"

Their are many great lines and scenes, Yellow Dog being too lazy to move his burning tail from the fireplace and Chevy moving it with a poker had me in tears. Yellow Dog digging up Claude Musclemen and bringing his hand inside and getting wacked with the frying pan. Chevy's new dog running away as soon as he brings it home, lamb fries, Sheriff crashing his car in the lake and the big Christmas tree, bridge falling when the movers try to go over it, the snake jumping out of the water, guy getting hooked in the neck scene, pay telephone scenes.

"You have to get up earlier than that, Mr. Farmer....I know the sound of two pennies being dropped into a jelly jar when I hear it"....CLICK!

before jumping off the boat to escape being beaten up:

"If you come after me, I'll be ready! I don't work...I don't sleep!"

Andy: "Ice fishing?"
Crum Petree: "I thought it was a nice touch....but it'll cost ya! HEHEHEHHEEHEE!"

Andy to Michael Sinclair:
"We could have had him! We could have hit him dead center! Who the hell are you, anyway?"

and, after finding out who Sinclair is and while standing there in full combat get-up after trying to hit a passing truck with a boulder:

"I can assure you, there's nothing strange going on here"

Priceless...

When Andy's wife is reading his manuscript,I'm paraphrasing here: "In the first chapter you have 3 flash-backs, 1 flash-forward and on page 22 you have a flash-sideways."

Ending with the wife begging him to, "Burn it!"

Gets me everytime.

reply

When Elizabeth is telling Andy about the Children's Book she sold. Andy realizes the story is about him. He asks her what the Squirrel's name is

Elizabeth: Andy.
Andy: I'm a son of a bitch!

LOL I always die at that part.

reply

"Now, how much notice do you think you'll need to start acting normal?"

(at the town hall meeting)

I used to use the flash sideways bit when I'd talk about lost years ago. I also loved the phone posts when after she'd had enough the wife finally says 'this is Elizabeth Farmer. There is a corpse in the garden. Get me the sheriff immediately!'

And when the dude digging up Claude Musselman says 'ma'am, can I trouble you for a glad bag?' She's all 'ugh, I'll get them'

That's just a few of many. Brilliant movie!
