Quote of the Day: Clue


Wadsworth: Professor Plum, you were once a professor of psychiatry specializing in helping paranoid and homicidal lunatics suffering from delusions of grandeur.

Professor Plum: Yes, but now I work for the United Nations.

Wadsworth: So your work has not changed.

Quote of the Day: Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

[Wayne shows Diane the shrunken couch]

Diane Szalinski: [excited] Are you saying… it works? The machine works?

[Wayne nods]

Diane Szalinski: Do the kids know?

Wayne Szalinski: Well, yeah, the kids know.

Diane Szalinski: That’s great!

Wayne Szalinski: No, it’s not that great.

Diane Szalinski: Why?

Wayne Szalinski: I shrunk the kids.

Diane Szalinski: …What?

Wayne Szalinski: And the Thompson kids too. They’re about this big, they’re in the backyard.

Diane Szalinski: *What*?

Wayne Szalinski: I threw them out with the trash.

[just as Diane grabs hold of Wayne, the doorbell rings. Wayne opens the door to two police officers]

Wayne Szalinski: Yes?

Female Cop: Did uh, you report two missing children?

Wayne Szalinski: Oh, there must be some mistake. Our children are in the backyard. Right, honey?

[Diane faints]

Quote of the Day: Highlander

Connor MacLeod: I don’t like boats, I don’t like water. I’m a man, not a fish.

Ramirez: So you complain endlessly.

Connor MacLeod: You look like a woman you stupid haggis.

Ramirez: Haggis? What is haggis?

Connor MacLeod: Sheep’s stomach stuffed with meat and barley

Ramirez: And what do you do with it?

Connor MacLeod: You eat it!

Ramirez: How revolting!

[Ramirez sneezes]

Connor MacLeod: Be still for God’s sake! You’ll tip us over.

Ramirez: So?

Connor MacLeod: I cannot swim you Spanish peacock.

Ramirez: I’m not Spanish, I’m Egyptian.

Connor MacLeod: You said you were from Spain! You’re a liar!

Ramirez: You have the manners of a goat and you smell like a dung-heap. And you’ve no knowledge whatsoever of your potential. Now, get out!

[Throws MacLeod into the lake]

Alex Finch: Oh, me? I was no one special.

Woman in the bookstore: Oh, we’re all special!

Alex Finch: I mean, I wasn’t Cleopatra or Hannibal or someone great or famous.

Woman in the bookstore: [the woman chuckles] I know you weren’t Cleopatra. I was.
