May I quote you?

casablanca-picThe past few weeks, I’ve taken to tossing out a random quote a couple of times a day on my Facebook and Twitter feeds.

I’ve got to tell you, it’s been fun.

It’s been an assortment of movie and TV quotes with song lyrics and another odd thing or two thrown in there.

Without further ado, here are several of them.

“Who are those guys?” Paul Newman as Butch Cassidy in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”

“I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!” Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch of the West in “The Wizard of Oz.”

“You’re soaking in it.” Jan Miner as Madge in 27 years of Colgate Palmolive commercials.

“We are the federales … you know … the mounted police.” Alfonso Bedoya as Gold Hat in “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre”

“And when you finish doing that, bring in the dog and put out the cat.” The Coasters in “Yakety Yak”

“Do you think she woke up one morning and said ‘I think I’ll go to law school today’?”  Victor Garber as Professor Callahan in “Legally Blonde”

“I’m in a hurry to get things done; Oh I rush and rush until life’s no fun.” Alabama in “I’m in a Hurry (And Don’t Know Why)”

“You think, DiNozzo?” Mark Harmon as Leroy Jethro Gibbs in “NCIS”

“Well doggies!” Buddy Ebsen as Jed Clampett in “The Beverly Hillbillies”

“Get busy living, or get busy dying.”  Tim Robbins as Andy Dufresne in “The Shawshank Redemption”

“Actually, it’s perfect. I just never realized John Wayne walked like that.” Robin Williams as Armand Goldman in “The Birdcage”

“Whenever I despair, I remember that the way of truth and love has always won.”  Ben Kingsley as Mahatma Gandhi in “Gandhi”

“Hemingway said, ‘Every true story ends in death.’ Well, this is a true story.” Jack Warden as George Halas in “Brian’s Song”

“Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes!”  Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as Roger Murdock in “Airplane!”
