Last night, we drank. And when we drink, in between oafish attempts at “l’amour” and trying to make like Wade Boggs and will ourselves invisible when it’s our turn to buy a round, someone will invariably start spouting off movie quotes. Shortly therafter, it devolves into a bunch of drunks babbling stuff like:
“Orange whip? Orange whip? Three orange whips.”
“‘PC Load Letter’? What the f–k does that mean?”
“Daniel Simpson Day has no grade point average.”
“Are you guys like Pedro’s cousins with all the sweet hook-ups?”
“Here lies David St. Hubbins. And why not?”
“This is Ohio. If you don’t have a brewski in your hand, you might as well be wearing a dress.”
Last night, however, as we rolled through this dreck, someone interjects: “The sun will rise, the sun will set, and I’ll have lunch,” the famous Lou Gorman bit.
So then we’re off on Red Sox quotes. Like that classic Oil Can Boyd observation after fog postponed a game in Cleveland: “That’s what you get for building a ballpark by the ocean.”
And Bill Lee’s take on the Green Monster: “Do they leave it there during games?”
And Clemens’ infamous playoff meltdown with umpire Terry Cooney that reached its crescendo with a hearty “I know where you live.”
And Dewey’s “You want a piece of me, Cerrone?”
So now we’re on a quote kick. And as we peel our eyes open and nurse ourselves back to health, we invite you to leave your favorite movie or Red Sox quotes in the comments section. Because it’s Friday. Time to kick back in your cubicle, turn on and tune out. Or watch Kung Fu.
