Post a Quote Challenge: Day 3

Stashmatters has tagged me to do the Post a Quote Challenge!

The rules are simple: post a quote each day for three days, and tag another blogger to do it each day. I guess you’re actually supposed to tag three bloggers per day, but that seems excessive to me. One quote, one tag! ๐Ÿ˜€

Today, I am tagging: mrsstrawberryblonde!

My third and last quote is from the classic Mel Brooks comedy, Spaceballs. It’s a Star Wars spoof starring Bill Pullman, Daphne Zuniga, John Candy, and Rick Moranis as the villain who utters my favorite line from an immensely quotable movie.

And now, to end Post a Quote Challenge on a sad note. Rick Moranis, the Toronto-born comedian who appeared in many memorable movies from my childhood (The Ghostbusters movies, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, L.A. Story, and Spaceballs, to mention a few), retired from Hollywood in the 1990s to raise his two children after his wife died of cancer. What a dad!

He still occasionally does voices for animated projects, like Brother Bear, so it’s nice to see that he hasn’t completely disappeared from moviemaking.

I never did see Little Shop of Horrors, so I think I’ll rectify that this weekend.

Thanks for reading! And thanks to Stashmatters for the tag!

My second quote is from another favorite comedy, Mystery Men, with Ben Stiller, Hank Azaria, Janeane Garofalo, Geoffrey Rush, and a bunch of other very funny people (Eddie Izzard has a small role in it, too!). The quote is spoken by a character called The Sphinx, played by Wes Studi, who guides our heroes with pithy, nonsensical sayings like, “Sometimes, the true hero is the one with the courage to run away.” Whoops, I guess you get two quotes today.

You must be like the wolf pack…
…not like the six pack.

Post a Quote Challenge: Day 1

Stashmatters has tagged me to do the Post a Quote Challenge!

The rules are simple: post a quote each day for three days, and tag another blogger to do it each day.

First, I am tagging: The Sock Mistress!

I’m not really into motivational quotes and the like, so I’ll just pick a few of my favorite lines from movies and TV.

Baldrick…
You wouldn’t recognise a subtle plan
if it painted itself purple and danced naked
on top of a harpsichord, singing,
“Subtle plans are here again!”
