What's your favorite line?

Mine is from "Mr Mom"

From "Back To The Future":

"What the hell is a jiggawatt?" - Marty McFly, after Doc Emmett Brown explains that the time machine's "flux Capacitor" needs 1.21 jiggawatts to work... [Linked Image]

As a side note, the cover over the flux capacitor as seen in the movie is a gearbox cover from a Simplex 35mm movie projector.


Stupid should be painful.

I thought "jiggawatt" was hilarious, until I found out it's the preferred pronunciation! It's probably the only place I've ever heard it.

My fave is from "Die Hard":

"Uh, central? Yeah, this is Walt over at Nakatomi. Do you think you could turn off grid 22?"

John, wasn't there some argument in a following scene as to whether the poco employee had authority to cut the power? I vaguely remember him standing in a hole full of water in the rain doing it!

Alan, "Walt" was standing in an open manhole, with a portable radio. The argument about authority was a little earlier, between him and the FBI guys, who tell him "Lose the switch, or you lose your job."

Actually, my favorite quote comes a few lines later: "Shut it down -- Shut it down now." My wife and occasionally mimic that line to each other, with the same inflection, just working around the house. [Linked Image]

Since someone stole the Die Hard scene from me ( [Linked Image] ), I also like the quote from Running Scared:

Two cops driving a taxi (containing a nun and a priest) down an "L" track in persuit of badguys.
Cop A: "Watch that third rail, there's 600 volts in there."
Cop B: "It's not the volts that get you. It's the amps."
Nun: "How many amps are there?!"
Cop B: "Enough to push a train... And shut up!"

-John
