Quote-idiots Friday

This evening, we will be watching this movie. Anyone? (If you’ve read April’s blog recently you are disqualified.) πŸ˜‰ As always, there’s a signed bag of popcorn for your next family movie night for the random winner chosen from the hundreds of right responses.

1) Light the lamp, not the rat, light the lamp!

2) If he became a flavor, you can bet he would be sour.

3) How would the bookkeeping staff like to be suddenly….UNEMPLOYED?

4) “I’m about to raise your salary.” “Ooooh, and I’m about to raise you right off the pavement….”

5) “Why are you whispering?” “It’s for dramatic emphasis.”

6) Mother always taught me “Never eat singing food.”

7) What an employer he was. Hard and as ruthless as a rose petal.

8 ) “This is scary stuff! Shouldn’t we be worried about the kids in the audience?” “Oh no, this is culture!”

9) “Hello London.” “Goodbye lunch!”

10) There’s more gravy than of grave about you.

Ok, when you know the answer, please leave your response and we’ll draw a winner, randomly, and send you your signed bag of popcorn. πŸ˜€

Until next time, Happy Movie Night, from the Clarks!

    Muppets Christmas Carol?

  2. Lynn says:

    Dawn,

    NO WAY! I went to the local video store today…
    this very day, to rent The Muppet Christmas Carol!?!?! I was so bummed when they didn’t have it. Can we come over and watch with you guys? I just made Runzas and I’ll bring them along. Little g and C are going to their missionary support night meeting (aka poker night.)

    Enjoy! I’ll be going to the nearby “big” town to rent it tomorrow. In the mean time, we’re watching Elf.

    Love ya,
    Lynn

    Lynn, Sweetie, ANY TIME! Runzas or no Runzas. (Granted I wouldn’t know a Runza if it BIT me!)

    E.L.F.?? Like Will Farrell Elf? Like ELF?!!! Now, I’ve not seen it, but Lynn….ELF??????????????????? πŸ™‚

    Tiffany – IT”S SO GOOD TO SEE YOUR NAME! πŸ˜€

  4. Ugggghhhh! I finally know one and everybody beat me to it!

  5. Lynn says:

    Runzas are rolls filled with cooked burger and cabbage.

    Yes, the Will Farrell Elf. Dawn, it’s hilarious. I’ve never seen anything else with WF in it and I doubt that I ever will. But this is one your family has to see… although they may be quoting it for quite some time. We’ve been known to answer the phone with “Buddy, the elf, what’s your favorite color?” And Chloe jumps from line to line in the crossing at Safeway.

    Okay, I’m curious… why are you questioning me about this movie?

  6. Tiffany says:

    So, do I win??? This is the first quote I’ve been around for, I’m so excited to be first!

    Starting to get online more these days, y’all probably start seeing my name more than you really want to before long….

  7. Lynn says:

    Sorry, Tiffany, but I think Undividedheart and I are still in the running. The fine print above reads… “there’s a signed bag of popcorn for your next family movie night for the random winner chosen from the hundreds of right responses.”

    Just so you have fair warning, I am SO competitive. I’m glad that none of you will see me tomorrow night at the Christmas party I’m going to…. my friend, Heidi, has such great prizes and I really want to win!!!

    *Jumping Up and Down* I finally knew this one! πŸ™‚ We love Muppet Christmas Carol. We love the Muppets!

    When my husband did his student teaching, he taught the kids Dicken’s Christmas Carol. And as a treat, he did a night showing of the Muppets with popcorn and candy. I got to go and it was fun to watch those kids laughing.

  9. javadawn says:

    I’m glad I could find a common one for us all! πŸ˜€

    As for the competition….whew ~ watch out, I’ve heard about Lynn’s competitive nature! πŸ˜‰

    Sooooo, Lynnaroni, let us know what you win at Heidi’s. πŸ˜€

  10. Lynn says:

    Dawn, I still want to know why you questioned my movie selection. Do you know something I don’t? After watching it last night (and it is SO funny) the only warnings I have to give is concerning the shower scene (which is all very innocent)… but you see Jovie from the shoulders up. And there are a few negative phrases used like cotton-headed-ninny-muggins, son of a nutcracker, and some mild profanity. If you’re concerned about my movie recommendation you can check it out at screenit.com.

    I sure hope I can find Muppet Christmas Carol today!

  11. Holly says:

    Nuts. I didn’t know it. We scarcely watch anything. πŸ™‚

  12. Holly says:

    THAT is a gorgeous picture up top, Mrs. Dawn! I love it!

  13. Kate says:

    I’ve never seen the Muppet Christmas Carol – I really want to watch it now having read all those quotes! Just for the record, and in Lynn’s defence, my husband and I rented Elf last year (yes, I know, two grown adults – hey, it was the run up to Christmas, we are allowed some seasonal nonsense, aren’t we?). We are not planning to watch it again but it did crack us up in places, especially when Buddy is listing how he and his father will spend the day and finishes “and then we’ll snuggle” (*shamefacedly* – we actually rewound and watched that bit again, sad but true).

  14. javadawn says:

    Lynn, my dear –
    It’s not Elf, per se, as I’ve not seen it. It’s Will Ferrell. I’m sorry – he just creeps me out. Granted, I’ve not seen him in much, but the few tiny bits I’ve seen just give me the creeping willies. HOWEVER, I am willing to give it a try! SO, we will track it down from the library and give it a shot. πŸ™‚ I even promise to do it with an open mind. πŸ˜‰

    Uh, Lynn, I will wait until sometime on Monday to see if anyone else knows of the quotes – and then I’ll draw a random name. I’ll be CERTAIN to post the winner. πŸ˜‰

  15. winkies6 says:

    We taped ELF one day last year. The kids really enjoy it. We were supposed to go to the school Dec 1st for a movie night, but we were “weathered out”. That was the movie they were showing, so we just had our own movie night. πŸ™‚ It’s a cute movie. Something about having a place in the world…..

  16. myderbe says:

    Lynn, I watched Elf last night. You’re right. Hilarious! And I don’t care for Will Farrell movies. Once we rented something with him in it and stopped it part-way into it because we couldn’t stand it. But this . . . this is just very, very funny.

    I know I’ll botch the quote but, — Singing is just like talking . . . only longer and your voice moves up and down. πŸ™‚ Very funny movie.

  17. javadawn says:

    Ok, Lynnaroni, it was in at the library –
    You uh, didn’t tell me that he was chewing other people’s GUM!!!! OH SO GAGGY!! πŸ˜€

    Oh and Lynn, I love you, I love you, I love you, you cotton headed ninny-muggins. πŸ˜‰

  18. javadawn says:

    AND that candy, syrup, chocolate syrup, Pop-tart spaghetti thang?!!! :blark: πŸ˜‰

  19. Lynn says:

    Dawn, wasn’t it funny!?!?!?!? Admit it, admit it, ADMIT IIIIT!

    Oh, that gum thang… when the girls were about 2yo we were flying home in the middle of the night. We made beds at our feet for them. As we landed in Anchorage Addie came out from under the seat chewing some gum she found there – GAG! I was SO grossed out but this single guy next to us thought it was hilarious.

    Myderbe, I’m glad you liked it. I usually NEVER recommend movies because our family has different taste than most. And I’ve never seen anything else with Will Ferrell – so I don’t get creeped out like Dawn.

    As for the party at Heidi’s. I didn’t realize we were to bring gag gifts. I took this really cool old, glass water bottle. I came home with Polident. But I did get a prize for ending up with the worst gift – a cute little snowman ornament. So do you feel sorry for me? Do I win the autographed bag of popcorn from the Clarks?

  20. myderbe says:

    That gum thing was gross! When my oldest was 15 or 16 months old, we had a picnic with friends at the park. We took Kentucky Fried Chicken. After a few minutes, we noticed our darling daughter walking around munching on a potato chip. We had not taken potato chips. Ick! She’d just found it in the park shelter.

    My kids keep coming up to me whispering, “I like to whisper too.” ha ha ha

  21. myderbe says:

    Oh, and Lynn. I went to a party for my MOPS group and we did a white elephant gift exchange. I ended up bringing home two 1993 factory-sealed videos — Buns of Steal and Legs of Steal. ha ha ha ha ha ha Can you believe nobody stole those things from me?

    And shucks, Lynn, we didn’t have a prize for the worst gift. Where’s my cute little snowman ornament? πŸ™‚
