Billy Ray Valentine: Happy New Year.
Coleman: That’s kind of you, son. A Happy New Year to you, too. Could I offer either of you two gentlemen a wee jolt of Irish whisky, to usher in the New Year?
Clarence Beeks: Not for me, pal.
Billy Ray Valentine: I do not drink. It is against my religion.
Coleman: I always say, religion’s a fine thing, taken in moderation.

Movie Quote of the Day – Clue, 1985 (dir. Jonathan Lynn)


Mrs. White: Yes. Yes, I did it. I killed Yvette. I hated her, so much. . .it-it- the f – it -flam – flames. Flames, on the side of my face, breathing-breathl-heaving breaths. Heaving. . .

Jack: An asshole! [beat] Life mocks me even in death.

Movie Quote of the Day – Animal House, 1978 (dir. John Landis)


D-Day: War’s over, man. Wormer dropped the big one.
Bluto: Over? Did you say “over”? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he’s rolling.
Bluto: And it ain’t over now. ‘Cause when the goin’ gets tough…
[thinks hard]
Bluto: the tough get goin’! Who’s with me? Let’s go!
[runs out, alone; then returns]
Bluto: What the fuck happened to the Delta I used to know? Where’s the spirit? Where’s the guts, huh?

Otter: Dead! Bluto’s right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part.
Bluto: We’re just the guys to do it.
D-Day: Let’s do it.
Bluto: Let’s do it!
