"Fat guy in a little coat" - yet another classic from the "Tommy Boy" quote mine

I’m tired tonight, but it’s a good kind of tired.  I’ve just come from a children’s ministries meeting at one coffee shop immediately followed by meeting a friend at another coffee shop.  I  think I need a coffee nightcap now and I’ll have had the perfect night.

    “Son, you got a panty on your head.” – Raising Arizona. We use this one pretty often around here.

    Another fave from the same movie, “We’re using code names.”

    If I want my husband to look at me funny and/ or shake his head I say, “Love isn’t love without a violin-playing goat.” ~Notting Hill

    Probably my favorites, or at least in my top 5, “I’m right on top of that, Rose.”-Don’t Tell Mom, The Babysitter’s Dead, and one that I find useful in many situations, “They’re called boobs, Ed.” -Erin Brokovich.


    • “Notting Hill” features one of my most best/worst quotes – the “I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, trying to tell him that she loves him”. Or some crap like that. It’s a stupid line and the delivery is just awful. Makes my teeth hurt. But I like the line about the goat.
