TT # 14

Raising Arizona has been playing on one of the movie channels. This is one of those movies where, no matter how many times you watch it, you catch more and more of the lines. This movie, Fargo, and O Brother, Where Art Thou are movies that I love to watch over and over again, listening for something new. And yes... a theme runneth through them. They are all Coen Brothers films.

Here are....

13 Lines from Raising Arizona

1. H.I., you're young and you got your health, what you want with a job?

2. They've got a name for people like you H.I. That name is called "recidivism."

Repeat offender!

Not a pretty name, is it H.I.?

No sir. That is one bonehead name. But that ain't me anymore.

3. Da**it, are you boys gonna chase down your leads or are you gonna sit drinkin' coffee in the one house in the state where I know my boy ain't at?

4. Name's Smalls. Leonard Smalls. My friends call me Lenny... only I ain't got no friends.

5. Wake up, Son. I'll be taking these Huggies and whatever cash ya got. And make it quick, I'm in dutch with the wife.

6. Biology and the prejudices of others conspired to keep us childless.

7. There's right and there's right and never the t'wain shall meet.

8. Why do you say you feel "trapped" in a man's body?

Well, sometimes I get them menstrual cramps real hard.

9. Edwina's insides were a rocky place where my seed could find no purchase.

10. We figured there was too much happiness here for just the two of us, so we figured the next logical step was to have us a critter.

11. Now you take that diaper off your head and you put it back on your sister!

12. We finally go out with decent people and you break his nose. That ain't too funny, Hi.

His kids seemed to think it was funny.

Well they're just kids.

13. If not Arizona, then a land not too far away. Where all parents are strong and wise and capable. And all children are happy and beloved. I don't know. Maybe it was Utah.

I have watched that movie before and couldn't tell you any of the quotes. Sometimes, I rent movies and don't remember I have seen them. Guess I am having senior moments.

Great post
Happy TT

Don't think that this was due to the mighty powers of recall. www.imdb.com gets all the credit. I just knew which ones were my faves.

Out of the thousands of TT entries I had to stop by someone who loves Raising Arizona. One of my all-time funniest movies. "Son, you've got a panty on your head!" I'm up too.

Any film that uses Utah as the final punchline strikes a chord with this ol' Utah gal. I still remember the first time my friends and I saw the movie and when we got to that line at the end I thought we were all going to die laughing.

It's even funnier now that I have kids.

I usually never remember a single line from a movie--even after seeing it a hundred times!!!

I've only seen Raising Arizona 2 or 3 times. Funny movie!

Lots of people LOVE this movie! I don't think I've ever seen more than maybe 10 minutes of it. I should probably watch it, huh?

Thanks for coming by to visit Snarkypants! I appreciated it! (I'm on the "better late than never" train of commenting!)
