Some people basically speak in movie quotes. I don't think I do, but they're definitely part of my cultural baggage. Here then are the 6 quotes I've been most known to use in every day conversation:
It's more the delivery than the words themselves, truthfully, but there's no call to extricate yourself from a situation more urgent that Christopher Lloyd's.
A recent addition, but there's something addictive about repeating Russell Crowe's corrective catch phrase to his daughter whenever someone says "and stuff" at the end of a sentence.
Since become meme-worthy, so I probably don't need to sell it; the line and delivery are perfect for when you don't believe something is real.
Doctor Who is very quotable, but I think this is the only line I use regularly, probably because people are always asking me when I sleep given my grueling blogging schedule.
People who interact with me, like, AT ALL, will have heard me say this anytime I come to an immediate understanding with a like-minded person. Unless they're total Herberts, then we never reached. (Actually, I'm SUCH a Herbert in real life; using this quote is the only groovy thing about me.)
The concept of the mind killer is something I use in teaching improv, fear standing in for anything that might hold you back while trying to have complete access to your brain. The mind killer is what prevents you from playing, and in a larger sense, from doing anything at all. And that mind killer is a feeling, anxiety or thought that is counter-productive and has no actual bearing on the situation. I think my students are the point where they think I made it up, so I'm going to have to force Dune on them (either the book or the Sci-Fi Channel mini-series, sorry David Lynch version).
Obviously, there are quotes I think about a lot - the "Oompa Loompa Song" is stuck in my head right now, and I often mentally react with lines from Magnolia - but these don't actually leave my lips. And there are quotes I like to do as impressions - Michael Keaton's "I'm Batman" or HAL's "Hi Dave" - but they don't count as "using them in conversation". What are the quotes YOU find yourself using most often in every day life? And do the mundanes notice?
