When laying down the law to my daughters, usually not in a totally serious manner, I invoke the spirit of Jules
eg: If you don’t shift all that washing off the stairs and back into your drawers as I’ve asked, I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and F-U-R-I-O-U-S anger (marks for extending furious to the longest possible)
When planning a trip to the smoke – ‘of course, London’s a big place. It’s a very big place…. (even better if I can find a pot or a vase to echo Loo-oo-oo-oose in)
Both obviously chosen to extend their learning experience to the best films, but mainly to cause maximum annoyance. Hence dragging the key words out until I get a reaction.Posted 9 months agoperchypantherMember
I pick up TV and movie phrases all the time and find myself using them unconsciously because I like the words rather than deliberately trying to shoehorn them in to a conversation.
I caught myself saying this to one of the kids the other day…
“You and I are going to have a conversation that you won’t enjoy”
Five minutes later, I realised I was channeling Tommy Lee Jones from Captain America.Posted 9 months ago
