    Intellectual challenge for the day…
    Think of examples where you might use a phrase or word from a TV/Film in everyday speech to add some humour or convey meaning. And the people who hear it would understand.

    like
    ‘Run Forest Run’
    or
    ‘Picanic basket’

    I wouldn’t say common but in our house two spring to mind.

    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.

    Here’s one I made earlier…I’ve started so I’ll finish…

    You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off

    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.
