Today, Sir Monkeypants and I have been married for 15 years. It’s a long time but it has flown by. Our honeymoon feels like it was a thousand years ago, and yesterday. The kids we were when we got married are long gone, yet they are still there inside. We’re different people now but we both still know each other as all the things we were, and all the things we’ve been in between.

I really like being married to that guy.

In celebration of our anniversary this morning, we both totally forgot, as is 100% typical of us on an annual basis. We both are fighting off a doozy of a cold and I spent most of the morning moaning on the couch while he struggled to get the kids off to school. Just another morning for us. I’ll take 15 more years of them, thank you very much.

I intended to make a lovely post this morning full of in-jokes and love poems and secret messages, but my head is pounding and I need to lie down. So instead I offer him (and you) this list of our 15 favourite movie quotes. Know these, and you can communicate with us even when we’re at our most exclusive twosome level. Happy anniversary, honey.

Tape it! Tape it! It’s taping.

Ho there! Keep your ho there.

For Skinny.

You just threw that in the spa.

Don’t you get it? You see the hat? I am Mrs. Nesbitt!


Eorlingas, to me!

Tonight’s key words are “caution” and “flammable.”

Nice shootin’, Tex.

Not even God knows what you’re doing.

Schnell! Schnell!

I’m behind you, but I’m in front of you.

Fit so nice, he said I could keep it.

You’re sawing the table right now!

It won’t always be like this. [Yes, it will, Roy; yes, it will.]

    Happy 15th! I love that you have those movie quotes. I could only recognize one of them, and only because the kids have watched that movie 500 times. Hope you both get better fast.

  2. Happy Anniversary – we celebrate 15 years this summer too.
    Will you be posting the movies that go with the quotes? Apparently I am really bad at this game and didn’t get any of them.

    1. I consider this a personal throw-down to Sir Monkeypants. He should be able to go 15 for 15. I’ll let him comment his answers!

    15 years – woo-hoo! Also loved the movie quotes. I only got one, the same one that Shirley did (for the same reason). Though I remember “Schnell, schnell” from Hogan’s Heroes, not from a movie.

  4. Happy Anniversary! Hope I don’t forget mine this year; my wife’s not quite as on the same forgetfulness page as me with that stuff.

    For SKINNY! (I remember that post… so funny…)

    Okay .. I have to admit that even *I* had trouble with some of these. I know the quotes, but where did they come from?

    1. Speed. They’re following the bus and the captain is making a video of them in the bus that Dennis Hopper can watch while they unload the bus.

    2. The Princess Bride. Inigo is drunk and waiting for Vizzini.

    3. Step Up. A particularly poignant and touching moment where they decide to get out of the drug business and dance after one of their friends is killed.

    4. Tin cup. Cheech to Costner after he’s thrown an empty milk cartoon into their inflatable pool.

    5. Toy Story. After Buzz realizes he is a toy.

    6. Point Break. Capitalization required to capture Keanu’s extremely poor deliver. Whoa.

    Okay .. I have to get ready to leave for work. So the descriptions are going to have to go for now.

    7. The Two Towers.

    8. Bubba Ho-Tep.

    9. Ghostbusters (I needed help with this one).

    10. Die Hard 3: With a Vengeance

    11. Die Hard

    12. American Flyers

    13. The Princess Bride

    14. This technically isn’t a movie. It’s from a CFB film short called The Big Snit.

    15. Tin Cup.

    1. In working on these quotes I have realized that you and I could have an entire conversation quoting exclusively from The Princess Bride, Speed, Tin Cup, and Die Hard 3. I propose that all future anniversaries involve a viewing of one of these four classics of cinema. Their legend lives on!

    2. DOH! Just thought of one I left out – “Why didn’t I just concur?” – this is from Catch Me If You Can, during the part when Leo DiCaprio is pretending to be a doctor.

  6. Mike and I quote a lot from movies. Love your list even if I didn’t know where some of them came from. We quote the most from the Office, Will Ferrell movies, Ben Stiller movies and such. Happy anniversary!

      Oh, man. I can’t believe there was a quote from a Bruce Campbell movie and I missed it. I will say that it was the quote I was most interested in finding out about. I think I *sensed* the epic coolness behind it.

      It’s the only Bruce Campbell movie that CapnPlanet thinks is even watchable, but he sat through all three Evil Dead films with me, as I am the world’s biggest horror film chickens*!t.

      This list has taught me that I need to pay more careful attention when watching movies. I missed TWO Princess Bride quotes and a Two Towers quote??

      1. CapnPlanet

        Well, the Evil Deads were definitely so awful (each in quite different ways!) that they were entertaining for their (presumably partly intentional) awfulness.

        And, yeah, it’s been too long since we watched the Princess Bride.
