From Just The Ten Of Us, when the slut sister goes on a date, and the date tries to date-rape her, and she breaks his arm. Then each time she's recounting the story, the religious sister asks the same series of questions:
"Did you order the lobster?"
"Did you cross and uncross your legs?"
"Did you go like this?" (licks lips), and of course the slut-sister answers affirmatively, but is too dumb to see that the whole fiasco is really her fault.

I always want to reproachfully ask people these questions mid-story, when they can't figure out what they did to trigger some consequence.

Come to think of it, I believe that, other than Star Wars, the lines that were quoted the most in my (all too small) high school social group were from the Hitchhiker's Guide. This was of course prior to the movie, which, sad to say, was so bad that it didn't motivate a renaissance in Guide quoting.

I was exactly the wrong age for HGtG and hated it with a passion ("... with a vengeance"), for not showing proper respect for science fiction (or something like that, I was a very earnest little teen). I actually quite enjoyed the film, but on the very low-bar grounds that I didn't (aged and mellow) dislike it as much as I had the books and the radio and TV show long ago when foolish (which probably means it was getting everything all wrong for actual-real back-in-the-day fans).

After watching for several minutes i really began to hate it, but my brother was there, and he wanted to watch a movie, so we surfed. The next movie to show up? Transformers. Now I don't have a lot of love for the transformers, but it still was another reminder of the horror that Hollywood was unleashing on my childhood fantasies.

Actually Last Chance Community College has a remarkably robust geek population. I my logic class this semester I needed an example of a true sentence with fictional reference. I opened with the first one that popped into my mind.

Me: So the sentence "Hamlet is the Prince of Denmark" is true, right?

[Pause.]

Me: Right?

Student 1: I don't know what your talking about.

Me: ok, I need another example. Umm, ummm. James Kirk is captain of the Starship Enterprise. Does that work for you?

[This was before the hype for the movie started]

Student 2: Actually, Kirk was captain of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701.

There are several quotes from Metropolitan that I reference for myself, but I don't generally use them in conversation:

"Sometimes old people get up really early." (I guess they didn't get up as early as I thought).

"None. I don't read novels. I prefer good literary criticism. That way you get both the novelists' ideas as well as the critics' thinking."

"Playing strip poker with an exhibitionist somehow takes the challenge away. "

"That it ceased to exist, I'll grant you, but whether or not it failed cannot be definitively said. "

Fred: Maybe you can clarify something for me. Since I've been, you know, waiting for the fleet to show up, I've read a lot, and...
Ted: Really?
Fred: And one of the things that keeps popping up is about "subtext." Plays, novels, songs - they all have a "subtext," which I take to mean a hidden message or import of some kind. So subtext we know. But what do you call the message or meaning that's right there on the surface, completely open and obvious? They never talk about that. What do you call what's above the subtext?
Ted: The text.
Fred: OK, that's right, but they never talk about that.

Speaking of pop culture references . . .

M/tch & I are going to a space-themed costume party on Saturday and need the hive brain's suggestions. We are most interested in the aren't-we-so-clever, conceptual sort of costumes, such as covering one of us in Post-It notes like the figure on the Office Space poster.

Mind you, simply awesome non-conceptual costumes are options as well. (I say that even though one such excellent idea would be for M/tch to go as Mork in a striped shirt and suspenders, but he petulantly refuses to even entertain the idea.)

Each of you should dress unobtrusively and, while at the party, behave in a way that doesn't call attention to yourselves. However, you should also always be on hand to welcome newcomers, introduce people who haven't met, pour drinks, facilitate conversations with new topics or new ideas (but never even one flashy or memorable bon mot), maybe even start a romance or two.

Ta-da: the dark matter that holds the party together.

"He stands...like some sort of...pagan god or deposed tyrant. Staring out over the city he's sworn to...to stare out over...and it's evident...just by looking at him...that he's got some pretty heavy things on his mind."

From the series:

"Egads! How many languages do you people have?"

I used to say the latter all the time to an ex-girlfriend, who spoke and read eight or nine European languages.

"Yes, sir, Cap'n Tightpants."

And finally: "Up until the punching, it was a real nice party."

I use all of those a lot, but in my circles, everyone gets the reference.

I am really not the kind of person who makes film/popular culture references. There's probably only one film I quote from, and that only to my family (i.e. my brother and my parents).

"What the hell, it was fun anyway," gets regular use.
"Her? She's ugly!"
"It's a quest! A quest for fun!"
"A dead person breathed on me!"

You know what's even better than the "literary criticism" reference from Metropolitan (and by "better" I mean "more likely to seriously irritate someone")? You wait until asks you some relatively innocuous question, wait two beats, and then bust out with this line from High Art: "Do you have any idea what a fucked-up thing that is to say to me right now?" I guarantee you will immediately sink several points in your interlocutor's esteem, and they may even kick you out of their car. To be deployed with caution, obviously.

We think we've settled on Sir Kraab going as a Red Giant, and me going as MySpace.

So: STANLEY FOR THE WIN!!!11!!
(what's the name of your band again, Stanley? I'd like to look at your MySpace page, for inspiration).

Honorable Mention: teh apostropher, for his heroic assist that resulted in the Red Giant concept.

349: Can't access myspace here at work, but with a name like that, I can't WAIT to get home . . .

350: My plan to mimic the gold soundz of myspace is to buy a bunch of those greetings/birthday/etc. cards that play tinny music when you open them and cut them down as small as possible so that I can flip open various ones as needed.

The space space got pretty thoroughly explored, but this reminds me that I later came up with an idea so profoundly offensive that decorum prohibits posting it even here. (Hint: Godwin violation.)

I'm glad this thread is still alive, because I omitted all quotes from Bring It On.

I'm pretty, I'm cool,
I dominate the school,
Who am I? Just guess,
Guys wanna touch my chest,

I'm major, I roar,
I swear I'm not a whore,
We cheer and we lead,
We act like we're on speed,
You hate us 'cause we're beautiful,
Well we don't like you either,
We're cheerleaders!
We are cheerleaders!
