'Wedding Crashers' (2005)
Jeremy Grey (Vince Vaughn): "Janice, I apologize to you if I don't seem real eager to jump into a forced awkward intimate situation that people like to call 'dating.' I don't like the feeling. You're sitting there, you're wondering do I have food on my face, am I eating, am I talking too much, are they talking enough, am I interested I'm not really interested, should I play like I'm interested but I'm not that interested but I think she might be interested but do I want to be interested but now she's not interested? So all of the sudden I'm getting, I'm starting to get interested... And when am I supposed to kiss her? Do I have to wait for the door cause then it's awkward, it's like well goodnight. Do you do like that ass-out hug? Where you like, you hug each other like this and your ass sticks out cause you're trying not to get too close or do you just go right in and kiss them on the lips or don't kiss them at all? It's very difficult trying to read the situation. And all the while you're just really wondering are we gonna get hopped up enough to make some bad decisions?

Really."Ron Burgundy: "Agree to disagree."

If I were a lion and you were a tuna, I would swim out in the middle of the ocean and freaking eat you and then I'd bang your tuna girlfriend."Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell): "OK, first off: a lion, swimming in the ocean. Lions don't like water. If you placed it near a river or some sort of fresh water source, that make sense.

And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire..."

Phil Connors (Bill Murray): "This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. Groundhog Day used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. You're hypocrites, all of you!"
'Trading Places' (1983)
Randolph Duke (Ralph Bellamy): "Exactly why do you think the price of pork bellies is going to keep going down, William?" Billy Ray Valentine (Eddie Murphy): "Okay, pork belly prices have been dropping all morning, which means that everybody is waiting for it to hit rock bottom, so they can buy low.

Joe with the kung-fu grip! And my wife ain't gonna f... my wife ain't gonna make love to me if I got no money!' So they're panicking right now, they're screaming 'SELL! SELL!' to get out before the price keeps dropping. They're panicking out there right now, I can feel it."

I've worn dresses with higher IQs. But you think you're an intellectual, don't you, ape?" Otto West: "Apes don't read philosophy." Wanda: "Yes they do, Otto. They just don't understand it.

Those are all mistakes, Otto. I looked them up."

Ferris (Matthew Broderick): "The key to faking out the parents is the clammy hands. It's a good non-specific symptom; I'm a big believer in it. A lot of people will tell you that a good phony fever is a dead lock, but, uh... you get a nervous mother, you could wind up in a doctor's office. That's worse than school. You fake a stomach cramp, and when you're bent over, moaning and wailing, you lick your palms. It's a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school."

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [to Igor] "Now that brain that you gave me. Was it Hans Delbruck's?" Igor: [pause, then] "No." Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: "Ah! Very good.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [pause, then] "Abby someone. Abby who?" Igor: "Abby... Normal." Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [pause, then] "Abby Normal?" Igor: "I'm almost sure that was the name." Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [chuckles, then] "Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA? [grabs Igor and starts throttling him] Is that what you're telling me?"
'The Jerk' (1979)
Navin R. Johnson (Steve Martin): "I know we've only known each other four weeks and three days, but to me it seems like nine weeks and five days. The first day seemed like a week and the second day seemed like five days. And the third day seemed like a week again and the fourth day seemed like eight days. And the fifth day you went to see your mother and that seemed just like a day, and then you came back and later on the sixth day, in the evening, when we saw each other, that started seeming like two days, so in the evening it seemed like two days spilling over into the next day and that started seeming like four days, so at the end of the sixth day on into the seventh day, it seemed like a total of five days. And the sixth day seemed like a week and a half. I have it written down, but I can show it to you tomorrow if you want to see it."
'National Lampoon's Vacation' (1983)
Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase): "We're 10 hours from the f**king fun park and you want to bail out. Well I'll tell you something. This is no longer a vacation. It's a quest. It's a quest for fun.

Nigel Tufnel: "Exactly." Marty DiBergi: "Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?" Nigel Tufnel: "Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not 10. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at 10. You're on 10 here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?" Marty DiBergi: "I don't know." Nigel Tufnel: "Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?" Marty DiBergi: "Put it up to 11." Nigel Tufnel: "Eleven. Exactly. One louder." Marty DiBergi: "Why don't you just make 10 louder and make 10 be the top number and make that a little louder?" Nigel Tufnel: [pause] "These go to 11."

Dr. Peter Venkman: "Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!"
