Charlie: "Look, kid, I - how much you weigh, son? When you weighed one hundred and sixty-eight pounds you were beautiful. You coulda been another Billy Conn, and that skunk we got you for a manager, he brought you along too fast.

Terry: "It wasn't him, Charley, it was you. Remember that night in the Garden you came down to my dressing room and you said, "Kid, this ain't your night. We're going for the price on Wilson." You remember that? "This ain't your night"! My night! I coulda taken Wilson apart! So what happens? He gets the title shot outdoors on the ballpark and what do I get? A one-way ticket to Palooka-ville! You was my brother, Charley, you shoulda looked out for me a little bit. You shoulda taken care of me just a little bit so I wouldn't have to take them dives for the short-end money."

Charlie: "Oh I had some bets down for you. You saw some money."

Terry: "You don't understand, I could have had class. I could have been a contender. I could have been somebody...instead of a bum...which is what I am. Let's face it... It was you, Charley."

"What, so I gotta sit here and eat desert alone like I'm fuckin Stephen Glansberg?" - superbad

Stephen Glansberg is not a character in the movie, despite him being showed. He's just a fuckin guy that's never mentioned again. But that one line made Seth and Evan so relatable in that movie, it just so perfectly contextualized how their high school worked, who they were in comparison, and it was all just by virtue of having "that kid known for doing something weird" thrown into it in such a natural way.

Makes sense since Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg started writing that script in like 8th grade. It's such a "went to a big public school system" kid line.

Fuck it, I also love the line from 40 year old virgin where Andy tells his coworker he 'drives' a bike, and gets "ok mr Schwinn Fuckin Armstrong, who asked you, to drive a bike?",. Schwinn fuckin armstrong got me on day 1, and will always get me till I do. Fuckin hilarious and such natural dialogue.

See, that's interesting - I didn't know that Good Morning Vietnam swiped that line from Abbott and Costello.



Taking absolutely nothing from Madplaid, I think he was mistaken. That line doesn't appear in Buck Privates as far as I can remember. I own every A&C movie ever made and I've seen that particular one at least 50 times over the past 50 years. I could be wrong, but I don't remember it.

Hi nargi, you may be right about Buck Privates. I have a distinct memory of Costello saying, in his perfect delivery, “End of an inning” to that stupid question. Funny. Maybe it was in another Abbott & Costello movie? I must have watched all their movies on wpix every Saturday when I was a kid.
