I was reading something about incorrect movie quotes (the writers got the facts wrong sort of thing) and my mind went to thinking about movie quotes that dont make sense in context. What are you favorites/onesyou are most annoyed by?

In case of rapture, can I have your car?

Eh what? its a little hard to figure out what you mean, or how this is a poll at all.

"Life is like box of chocolates" because im a casual movie watcher and its one of the only movies i remember seeing more than once.

I always wondered why did he open the box and start eating the chocolates before he even got to jennys house.

I remember this one from "In the loop"

Malcolm Tucker: "Climbing the mountain of conflict"? You sounded like a Nazi Julie Andrews!

Funilly enough the trailer just has him shouting "Nazi Julie Andrews!" at the end...
The sun beyond the mountain glows
The yellow river seaward flows
You can enjoy a grander sight
By climbing to a greater height

I have run out of places to climb. I will abandon this body and take to the air. We will leave twin vapor trails in the air, white lines etched into these rocks. I am the aerial. In my passing, I will send news to each and every star.

DM: You'll need the spider's permission first...

"That punk pulled a Glock 7 on me, you know what that is? It's a porcelain gun made in Germany. It doesn't show up on your airport metal detectors and probably costs more than what you make in a month."

Sorry about that, I'll clarify.

What are your favorite annoying quotes from movies or quotes that make no sense (in context)?

Right now "nobody puts baby in a corner" is really bugging my for some reason
In case of rapture, can I have your car?

I only have a sideways answer.  I can't think of any direct quotes that annoy me (I'm sure there must be many) but what really bugs me is extremely long 'quiet' shots where no dialogue is spoken, no camera is panning, and no expressions are changing on the person we are looking at it.

Clearly nothing but filler to make a 20 minute movie into an 82 minute movie so they can get more money, I guess.

Or the tedious chase scenes where the no tension is building, no changes in the scenery or characters are occurring, just virtually the same shots over and over (same reason as above).

Another buggy thing is what I call 'French Endings' (sorry, Frenchies!) where the movie ends on something completely stupid because they (producer? director? writer?) didn't know how to end it.  Typically, a streetcar out of nowhere running over the main character or the car driving off the cliff (no, I'm not thinking of "Thelma and Louise" - it made sense in that one).  The other type of French Ending is where the movie just stops; no resolution to the problem, no idea of where it would go from here... I'm thinking they just ran out of film.

Oh... another "this really bugs me": science fantasy passed off as science fiction.  But that should be another thread.

It's funny.. bad lines don't seem to bug me near as much as the above.  I just think "what a crap line", and then carry on with it.

That should be "Baby" not "baby". Since it's her nickname. And she was sitting in the corner; the underlying notion being that her father is sort of punishing her by making it more difficult for her to get up and leave his side.

It's still kind of lame regardless.
All right, I’ve been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man whose gonna burn your house down – with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

Can't say I blame you for not wanting to rewatch it. It's not a bad movie as such, but it's kind of "meh".
