Does your family watch movies? Do they like movies. Are they obsessed with movie lines?
We love movies around Chez Knit.
When the progeny were young their TV watching was limited. Most of the time I made them go out and play with the bugs and frogs in the dirt. When they came in they could watch certain programs….and they could watch as many movies on video tape as we had available. And we had a lot. And we recorded a lot.
But not just any old movie, like some skanky Movie of the Week. No, no, no they could watch old movies or musicals. Things like Ben Hur or Sound of Music or The Fugitive or something like that. They went through an extended Charleton Heston phase at one point. And we all seemed to have the capacity to quote lines from the movies that we had watched. Endless lines.
And we can’t seem to stop.
We keep you alive to serve this ship. Row well….and live.
You’ve got sawdust in your veins!
Welcome to Earth!
You want to make it a runway!
What about second breakfast?
Behold His mighty hand!
Left turn. Left turn. Too fast. Too fast. Pull up. Pull up.
Ryan,some things in here don’t react well to bullets.
You are a strange, sad little man.
The other day, while on the phone with Cartoon Girl, she called something “hinkey”. My next comment was, “He did a Peter Pan right here!”
And Cartoon Girl said, “Oh man, it is so great that you knew what movie I was talking about without me having to explain it. I love that about our family”.
