And....just for you Tenacious Peaches!

"I draw the line at seven unanswered phone calls"

Of course this could only be one film...

"Joe lies, Joe lies, when he cries..."

"Why do you eat that stuff? There's no food in your food"

I can't believe that with this site being predominately about music that no one has mentioned.......

THE BLUES BROTHERS

Undoubtedly the best film of all time not just the '80's

" It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it"

[to man in restaurant]

Jake: [fakes accent] How much for the little girl? How much for the women?

Man: What?

Jake: Your women. I want to buy your women. The little girl, your daughters... sell them to me. Sell me your children.

Elwood: Illinois Nazis.

Jake: I hate Illinois Nazis.

Elwood: Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration, don't fail us now.

Jake: First you trade the Cadillac for a microphone. Then you lie to me about the band. Now you're gonna put me right back in the joint.

Elwood: They're not gonna catch us. We're on a mission from God.
