movie quotes are more fun at work when a coworker knows the responding line. we quote "hot rod" a lot.
Something like this:

"Hi, my name is _____, and I like to party"
"I know for a FACT you don't party!"

I have used this line to introduce new designs:

"I needed to think last night. So I galloped into a wooded glen, and after punch dancing out my rage and suffering an extremely long and very painful fall, I realized what has to be done."

Also quote Napoleon Dynamitea LOT in my office. Most common?

"Idiot! GOSH!"

or when referring to working on a project for a client:

"I will build her a cake."

but one of the guys on my team found this clip on Youtube:

which, of course, became our department's motto and mantra. :mrgreen:

some i use from one of my most quotable movies ever... all in one scene! ... re=related
video quality is terrible but you get the gist if you haven't seen the movie.

"theres a man with integrity!" - White men cant jump. (use when someone is brutally honest about something)

"this is like the luck of the irish but im not irish, so you figure it out" - White men cant jump. (when somone catches a break)

"aint no thing but a chicken wing on a string.. from burger king." - White men cant jump (use whenever!)

Modern Man seems to most often quote and reference The Big Lebowski and Dr. Strangelove.

"Mr. President, we must not allow a mineshaft gap!"

"I, uh... I do not avoid women, Mandrake... But I... I do deny them my essence."

"Shut the fuck up, Donny."

"Has the whole world gone crazy? Am I the only one around here who gives a shit about the rules? Mark it zero!"

"Fuckin' Quintana... that creep can roll, man."

"Fuck it, Dude, let's go bowling."


"I had a rough night, and I hate the fucking Eagles, man."

"You mean coitus?"
