"You know how to whistle, don'tcha, Steve? You just put your lips together and...blow."

Didge TheOtherTink Dec 28, 2016

That's going back a way. Thanks, Tink.

@ Didge:

I love old film noir flicks.  It the days of strict censorship, they had great double entendres in the lines, like in this one, starting at 1:36.  :)

Didge TheOtherTink Dec 29, 2016

Good fun. :) 

Marianne TheOtherTink Dec 29, 2016

Unforgettable Bacall and Bogart - a great pair!

"Some folks just need killin'."


Didge xix Dec 29, 2016

Looks as though the kid's listening. Hope he didn't follow in his father's footsteps. :)

xix xix Dec 29, 2016

That wasn't his father. And it was the kid that said it, about his mom's piece of crap boyfriend.

Didge xix Dec 29, 2016

You sucked me in that one. Sounds like a smart kid (if you don't mind a smidgin of homicide in his upbringing). :)

xix xix Dec 30, 2016

He's just Southern.

Slingblade with Billy Bob Thornton and Lucas Black. Trippy movie !

The thing I liked was I never had any problem understanding anyone's accent.

After watching Starwars Rogue One today I have added a new favorite to my list.

"Rebellions are built on hope." - Cassian Andor, Rogue One

Didge Corey The Goofyhawk Dec 29, 2016

Pity we didn't have that to go on in the lead-up to November 8. That was most certainly a rebellion. Lots of hope, probably unfounded.

@ Didge:

I seem to remember something about "hope and change" about 8 years ago.

But the hubris (among other things) spoiled it.


Didge Corey The Goofyhawk Dec 29, 2016

There's always promise and it's almost invariably followed with disappointment. :( 

@ Didge:

Yes, when politicians (aka professional liars) are involved.  :angry:

"Get your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!" Planet of the Apes....1968

Didge Rooster Dec 29, 2016

Didn't see that one but the quote reminded me of Independence Day: "Welcome to Earth!" 

TheOtherTink Rooster Dec 30, 2016

@ Rooster:

Yeah, you have to say that from time to time.  :D

There are many, and regarding movies in English, I liked some hilarious statements, for instance:

"I don't want to talk about it." (after a hilarious mishap)

(The Gods Must Be Crazy)

and a rather famous quote:

"(Well) - nobody is perfect".

(Some Like It Hot)

Didge Marianne Dec 29, 2016

I remember that first quote. You're right, it was hilarious. We watched both those movies a few months ago and enjoyed the reruns. :)

Marianne Marianne Dec 30, 2016

Lol - I am still laughing at the hilarious scenes in The Gods Must Be Crazy (No 1 was the very best, but No 2 was funny too). And I saw them several times.


Didge Marianne Dec 30, 2016

I kept a copy of both when they were shown on TV. We watch the every two or three years and they still make us laugh. It's just good fun. 

Marianne Marianne Dec 30, 2016

Lol - I don't have videos left, but since years, certain TV channels are showing about once every 1 - 2 years several of these good old parodies. Furthermore, there are lots of anniversaries and hommages to be added.

You heard probably that several great names of the movie and music scenes passed away this year, like, lately, Michèle Morgan and Claude Gensac, Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, etc., just to cite a few.

The Day the Earth Stood Still.  

Many years ago I used it as a closing statement in my signature block. I was told by upper management, in all seriousness, I wasn't allowed to use religious quotes in my signature block. They thought I was writing "Latin".

TheOtherTink AncientOne Dec 29, 2016

LOL!  :D

Didge AncientOne Dec 29, 2016

Religious quote? You must have been working for a genius. 

It's one of those phrases that means nothing and everything, both at the same time. Strange but effective. 

AncientOne AncientOne Dec 30, 2016

Love it.

From The Wizard of Oz, what put the ape in apricot? What makes the hot in Hottentot so hot.... Courage!!

Didge Echooos Dec 29, 2016

The Wizard of Oz was released in Oz a couple of weeks after my third birthday (I just looked it up). My sister took me to see it but I don't remember a darned thing. Thanks for the quote.

Echooos Echooos Dec 30, 2016

Dang Didge!!! how could you not know The Wizard of Oz.... So what did you grow up in woop woop?

Didge Echooos Dec 30, 2016

I thought Woop Woop was a uniquely Australian town (along with Bandywallop and Wheelabarabak). 

(I mistyped that and my spell checker suggested uniquer. How the heck cany anything be uniquer? It either is or it isn't. Crazy computer.) 

Mountain Man Dec 30, 2016

From The Dead Pool with Clint Eastwood in 1988. "You forgot your fortune cookie. It says you're sh#t out of luck."
