Fab 5 Fridays

Fab 5 Fridays, where I flash on 5 of my favorite things. Move over, Oprah.

This week, it's my five favorite movie lines. No, not the lines you stand in to get inside the theater, but the ones you hear once the movie starts.

1. "I'll be your huckleberry," said Doc Holliday in Tombstone. I don't remember the context, but I use this line whenever Sarge is mad at me.

2. "You better bop Mister upside his head and think about heaven later," said Miss Sophia in The Color Purple after Celie had told Harpo to beat her.

3. "Burn it." Mel Gibson in Braveheart OR what he told his ex-wife to do with those audio tapes.

4. "You can't handle the truth," said Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men. I know, I know; such a cliche, but it was either that or, "Honey, I'm home," also Nicholson after he axes his way through the door in The Shining.

5."Am I missing a tooth?" Stu, from The Hangover. I can't wait until the Wolf Pack comes back!

What's you favorite movie line?

I have a couple I share with the Beneficent Mr. Hall.

"What we have here is a failure to communicate." from Cool Hand Luke (You'd be surprised how often that can come up in a marriage. Or maybe not. :-)

"Was that fast? I thought that was fast? Did you think that was fast?" Jodie Foster says this to Mel Gibson in Maverick about drawing guns. We don't say it about guns, but there are a LOT of fast things in life. :-)

LOL, Cathy. I can think of a couple times to use the "Was that fast" line. ;-)

I say "I'll be your huckleberry" all the time! I LOVE Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday in Tombstone.
