I think we all know that person who speaks in movie quotes… constantly. You wonder, how the heck do they remember that? Sometimes it makes for awkward silences. Case in point, tonight:


Corey: Says/does something funny.
Me: Babe, you’re funny!
Corey: Funny, how? Like a clown? Like I amuse you?
Me: Silence. Confusion. (In my head thinking: Really? What do you mean funny how? Funny like you made me laugh!)
Corey: It’s a quote from Good Fellas.
Me: Ohhhhh. Yeah. Never seen it.

This happens more than I care to admit. It happened all the time when we first started dating. You know that stage when even if the guy says something weird/dumb/confusing you just nod your head and smile and hope he doesn’t realize you have no freakin’ clue what they’re talking about?! Yeah. It was awkward. But that’s why I love him!

  1. Hahaha very nice! I am quite the opposite… I haven't seen that many moves in my lifetime (at least compared to my friends) and I have a bad movie memory too. I need to work on it!

  2. Bahahahahaha, that happens to me far too often. I'm usually the person who doesn't recognize the quote. Oops.

    You and Corey sound adorable.

  3. hah, that's awesome. my husband does that, too, but usually he's quoting from some obscure childhood movie, so i don't beat myself up for not knowing what he's talking about.

    oh! and i'm totally jealous that you live in downtown portland! we're planning a weekend trip there in a few weeks! let me know if you have any suggestions for places to see, eat, etc. 😀

  4. yep 🙂 happens to me all the time too! 🙂 some times i am actually proud of myself for *not* watching the movies my fiance quotes. he's like: “oh it's a quote from extract”.. and i'm like: “yeah, no one watched that but you” haha.

  5. This is so funny! My husband used to ask me if he was funny like a clown when we first started dating. I had no idea what he was talking about so I would just kiss him because he was so cute.

    And we both do some movie quotes together that we have both seen.

  6. I showed this to my boyfriend and he instantly knew what movie that was from! He quotes movies all the time and I have no idea where they are from. 🙂
