Yes, Skunkee, another great one ..."Be careful out there among those English. "
I haven't used that one in awhile, though.It's actually kind of a special thing to say to somebody.

But 'Ten seconds, Bob!" is in almost constant use around here, and I have said it since high school...but it worries me that I forgot it was from an old Cheech and Chong album I had thirty years ago [ which included the Sister Rosetta Stone thing, too!] This bit consists of someone screaming shrilly QUIET! and then in a soft nasal voice droning hmm..thank you, class.
----------------
EDIT
[ Whoops. Just informed by my friend that it was really Sister Mary Elephant on that old Cheech and Chong album, rather than Rosetta Stone. I stand humbly corrected. Boy, it really has been thirty years...]

Well, I never knew where "ten seconds Bob" came from until today. My husband did, however, as he is a big Cheech and Chong fan. Cheech and Chong weren't that well known in Australia.

I'm a big Harrison Ford fan so "Be careful out there among those English" is another saying you'll hear frequently in our house. Normally said by Maynooth when he has the day off and I am heading out the door to go to work.

Whenever my daughter says she can't do something (like her maths homework), Maynooth always says "There's no such thing as CAN'T in auto-racing, Marigold". Does anyone know where that comes from? I've always assumed it came from a cartoon.

MG, that ' Marigold' line comes from the 1960's cartoon series called Tom Slick [He was a race car driver.] It was well written and always funny - by the same folks who created Rocky and Bullwinkle.

"What we have here is a failure to communicate..." (from "Cool Hand Luke") was useful in our house when growing up. It sticks with me as a memory since I was usually just about to get grounded when I heard my Dad say it .

Oh, yes, Gats...I forgot about that classic beauty, too. I think almost every parent [ with a sense of humor, that is] says that to their teenager at one time or the other!

Quote:

"I'm doing it, I'm doing it" (Basil Fawlty)




That one we render as "I'm doing it NOW" - I especially use it when I answer the phone, knowing it's my mother to remind me it's the dog's day to get his ears permed (another FT quote - hey, I never noticed that, FT for FunTrivia and Fawlty Towers freaky)

Other Fawlty Towers favourites
"Pretentious, moi?"
"Under the tay-ble"
"He's from Barcelona"
"He is hideous orangutan"
"I speak English well, I learned it from a book"
"Brahm's fifth racket" (fifth?)
"Is this a piece of your brain?"
"A herd of wildebeast sweeping majestically across the plains"
"A bit buttery with my skin"
"I think we got something here" (when Mrs Richards says the radio's broken and Basil has it blasting - again I use with my parents often when they've failed to grasp something basic about technology, like, ooh, the TV needs to be plugged in!)

Making myself go on to something else...though I'm quite sure I never saw it in the original, "to da moon, Alice" slips out of my mouth quite regularly.

Blackadder's another fine source of course:
"A turnip all of my very own"
"Dog - not a cat"
"Bob."
"Mistress Ploppy"
"No, a deep, booming voice"

My brother and I have whole conversations which consist of little else but quotes (and voices, of course) - makes for good short-hand. Can't think of any postable examples right now, but they'll come to me!

Alot of my favourites come from the British comedy "Keeping Up Appearances".

"Mind the Pedestrian". (Hyacinth)
"It's Bouquet! B-U-C-K-E-T." (Hyacinth)
"Try not to make a noise in the bathroom, Dear." (Hyacinth)
"If my Sheridan were here, he's be appalled!" (Hyacinth)
"Oh, nice!" (Onslow)

We have also taken to referring to family members as 'our' as they do on the program. 'Our Hyacinth, 'Our Rose' etc. We get a big kick out of it.

My boys like the quotation from the animated "Madagascar".
"If you have any poo fling it now".
That one reduces them to hysteria.

Another favourite is Seinfeld's "No soup for you!" and Oh Moses smell the roses!"

We have also been known to use the Potterisms
(M*A*SH)

'horse hockey'
'mule fritters'
'beaver biscuits'

Yes, Sherman Potter is sometimes quoted around here, too, and the kids don't even know what they're quoting!

And of course, a stand by I forgot..."I'm ready for my close up, Mr. DeMille" [ only effective with thrown back head and glazed over eyes]

We throw Seinfeldisms around all the time so I'd be forever listing those but there's one that I still catch myself saying (especially while driving) -

"What does a yellow light mean?"
"Slow down."
"What does a yelloow liight mean?"
"Slow down."
"Wha-at duzzz a yelllow liiight meean???"
"Slow down!"

...you get the picture...

One of my favorites is "You play ball like a GIRL!" from The Sandlot.

I'm also particularly of "There's no crying in baseball!" From A League of Their Own.

One I use around here a lot is "That boy ain't right" from King of the Hill.

My dad used to say "mmmmmm chocolate" and "mmmmmm donuts" like Homer Simpson.

edited to add "Juuuuuust a bit outside" from Major League.

Sometimes if my sister or I say something smart-alecky to our dad he'll give us a play slap on the cheek and say,"Gotta rap somebody on the beak to get a little respect around here." (which is from "Tombstone") That quote might not be word for word, but you get the idea. That scene still cracks me up but I don't think it's meant to.

My aunt (my dad's sister) says, "You're a daisy if ya do." sometimes too.

What a maroon...what an ultra maroon!" is a bugsi-ism in use since my brothers and I were old enough to drag a cereal box down from the pantry on Saturday morning.

Some more are:

"I'm comin' Elizabeth - this is the big one!" as Fred Sanford clutches his chest.[That's probably a line from
Steptoe And Son too, come to think of it.

"A little song
A little dance
A little seltzer
down your pants..."
[ The Mary Tyler Moore Show

"I'm mean, but I make up for it by bein' REAL healthy..."

[ Andy Griffith Show]

"Oh. ROOOOBBB!"
[Dick Van Dyke]

These gave me such a good laugh, have to add some of ours.
'Here's one I prepared earlier...' I use this often in my Year 2 classrooom, goes over the kids heads, but I enjoy it and if there's ever another adult in the room it gets a giggle.
'Don't mention the war' (Basil Fawlty)
'B-a-a-a-sil!! (Sybil Fawlty) is one my daughter and I shriek whenever cooking with/shopping for basil.
'Looks like a sub-dural haematoma' is from an old television show called Ben Casey. Dr Ben Casey was a neurosurgeon and everything turned out to be a subdural haematoma.

Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries! (Monty Python and the Holy Grail)
Just a flesh wound. (Monty Python and the Holy Grail)
Run Away! RUN AWAY! (Monty Python and the Holy Grail)
Prepare for the fight scene! (Robin Hood: Men in Tights)
I lost. I lost? Wait a minute; I'm not supposed to lose! Let me see the script! (Robin Hood: Men in Tights)
I can see! [WHAM!!] Nope, I was wrong. (Robin Hood: Men in Tights)
I don't know what to do! I can't make decisions! I'm a president! (Spaceballs)
Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes? (Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark)
Ah! Dessert... Chilled Monkey-Brains! (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom)
"X" never, ever marks the spot. (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade)
We at the FBI do not have a sense of humor we're aware of. (Men In Black)
