dear guys...

... please do not try to charm women by quoting movies. Save that for your old developmentally arrested college buddies. Half the time the reference will be lost on us anyway and we will just think you're having a stroke. Thank you.

I don't think I could have a conversation without quoting a movie.

You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means. (Inyigo Montoya - The Princess Bride)

As Dirty Harry said- "A man's got to know his limitations".

For bonus points- Anyone know why they called him "Dirty Harry"?

Sorry Kat, but you started it. P&B.

i was JUST saying this!!
i am pretty sure this is some form of autism. nobody cares if you remember every word will ferrell has ever said. the occasional obscure movie quote is fine, but i can't even watch several coen brothers movies anymore, and i disliked the princess bride enough already. this also goes for pink floyd lyrics.

We're not trying to charm you, it's a complex screening process. We don't want to spend the rest of our lives with a woman who doesn't appreciate the finer things in life.

It's either that or we go back to breaking wind and watching your reaction.

Your call.

The Crescat said...

Well then Shark, I guessed I failed. No wonder I am still single. :-P

Retail Girl, that was one of my all-time favorite quotes! When I first heard it at age 11 I immediately appreciated its profundity and untapped humor.
