I have the Rainy Day blahs. You know what they are, drizzle days with no spark. It has been gray for a few days and it really brings my mood down. On the first day, I enjoy puling out snuggly sweaters, tucking in the cozy couch and listening to the rain. But several days of it and I am feeling the BLAHS. I have no reason to feel this way and it kind of annoys me because I have been riding the Tourist high for a while.  School is working out, I have my books, cracked them open and started reading. Working is going smoothly. My kids transition into school has been great. I leave soon for Paris. I am reconecting with friends. So why the BLAHS? I blame the gray sky. So to cheer me up I am making a list of my Top 11 Favorite Funny Movie Quotes. I need a laugh and a smile. Just thinking about these moments sends my honey and I into a fit of giggles. So, pop some popcorn and grab a bag of licorice and lets reminisce!

  1. I don’t have a quote I have a dialogue from a Pink Panther Movie

    Inspector Clouseau to Hotel Clerk “Does your dog bite”
    Hotel Clerk “No”
    Inspector Clouseau after getting bit by the dog “I thought you said your dog didn’t bite”
    Hotel Clerk “That is not my dog”

  2. “There’s no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you’ll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?”

  3. “The new phone book’s here! The new phone book’s here! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity I need! My name in print! That really makes somebody! Things are going to start happening to me now.”

  4. I’m not sure whether you’re an Adam Sandler fan or not, but Happy Gilmore is one of my favourite comedies. Perhaps my favourite line from it is the one he gives in response to his nemesis, Shooter McGavin:

    Shooter: You’re in big trouble though, pal. I eat pieces of sh*t like you for breakfast!
    Happy: You eat pieces of sh*t for breakfast?

    The Hangover is a great movie to watch, and another one I love is The Princess Bride. That whole movie is fantastic, I love the initial scenes between The Man in Black and Inigo, Fezzik and Vizzini.

    Man in Black: [as he is unsuccessfully fighting Fezzik] Look, are you just fiddling around with me or what?
    Fezzik: I just want you to feel you’re doing well.

    And finally, one from Anchorman:

    Bartender: You know, times are changing. Ladies can do stuff now and you’re going to learn how to deal with it.
    Ron Burgundy: What? Were you saying something? Look, I don’t speak Spanish.

    1. I do enjoy Adam Sandler! Actually, all of the movies you mention are excellent choices!! If you have never read The princess bride, you must. I picked it up for a train journey through the Rockies, I never saw a mountain but I did laugh out loud until people stared. It remains the funniest book I have ever read to date. I recommend it! Thanks for the great lines today!
