I’ve heard this from the kids more than once to express their lack of desire to attend school (though they know I won’t be home baking cookies.)
(And I posted to reassure everyone that I’m still in the game, just not every day—well, except today! Old habits…)
Such a useful quote when needing to warn others not to use the bathroom. Can be shortened to “Grandpa Fred” and be completely understood in my house.
There’s a little Grandpa Fred in all of us! Click here to watch the whole scene!
Bender said this to the principal and got the memorable “Don’t mess with the bull. . . you’ll get the horns” response, but this Barry Manilow line is useful.
This is in no way meant to disrespect Barry. Love him! Used to jam to this album in the basement with my sis.
Had this one too. “Copacabana” was on this. Need I say more?
Say this when you would like someone to hand you something but don’t have to be particularly polite in asking for it.
“Farmer Ted” (Anthony Michael Hall) said this in Sixteen Candles, which my sis and I saw at the Riviera back in the day. Such a useful quote.
A little longer clip (beware. . . contains potty language)
Navin (Steve Martin) was explaining potential carnival prizes. Often misquoted as “between the chiclets and the erasers,” this can be used when describing where things are located.
This quote works for a tough day or even an especially good day, but it is only really effective if you’re inexplicably obsessed with this movie.
No need to be careful what you wish for if you listen to Willy Wonka (played brilliantly by Gene Wilder in the 1971 movie).

This is how the principal described six-year-old Maizy, and Uncle Buck (John Candy) went into a tirade that included the memorable have-a-rat-gnaw-that-thing-off-your-face advice. Be a sillyheart!
Watch the scene!
“Annie” said this when serving pie to her “family”. Whenever anyone in my house asks me to bring them something, they know I will use this line.
Here it comes… time for a pie in the face?
