10 Underrated Quotes in Legendary Movies


Posted by on

We all know the famous lines – the “I’ll be back”s and the “We’re gonna need a bigger boat”s of the world get plenty of press. But in this list, we’re going to shine some light on underrated bits of dialogue from major flicks.

10. “Where’s the commode in this dungeon? I gotta take a squirt,” Reservoir Dogs

Quentin Tarantino is notorious for quotable movies, but this Steve Buscemi line from his first flick doesn’t get enough love.

9. “You’ve had your whole f***ing life to think things over. What good’s a few more minutes gonna do you now?” The Shining

We all know “Here’s Johnny,” but this Kubrick classic has some equally incredible dialogue, most notably this homicidal quip.

8. “Pardon my French, but Cameron is so tight that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass, in two weeks you’d have a diamond,” Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

John Hughes was a master of crafting unforgettable dialogue, and while people remember other lines from Day Off, this one is a favorite.

7. “For us, there is no spring. Just the wind that smells fresh before the storm,” Conan The Barbarian

The bit about driving your enemies before you is the money shot of Conan, but this grim parable is equally good.

6. “You mark that frame an eight [and] you’re entering a world of pain,” The Big Lebowski

This Coen Brothers classic is chock-full of amazing quotes, but this bit from Walter Sobchak at the bowling alley is truly underrated.

5. “Story of my life. I always get the fuzzy end of the lollipop,” Some Like It Hot

Billy Wilder’s 1959 flick was rated the best comedy of all time by the American Film Institute, and this quote showed Marilyn Monroe’s underrated chops.

4. “A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets,” Titanic

Yes, there’s the “king of the world” bit and the “draw me like one of your French girls” bit, but this line from Rose is very underappreciated.

3. “Pick up that blood!” Caddyshack

Harold Ramis’s 1980 golf comedy classic is one of the most quotable movies of all time. This line from Lou Loomis doesn’t get enough love.

2. “Didn’t we just leave this party?” Star Wars

Han Solo has the lion’s share of good lines in the first Star Wars flick, but this particular quip, delivered as the crew is trying to escape the Death Star, is a particular favorite.

1. “I’m not going to waste my time arguing with a man who’s lining up to be a hot lunch,” Jaws

This quip from marine biologist Matt Hooper is one of many sick burns throughout Jaws, and Hooper does manage to survive.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
