|"Now they know that we know that they know that we know." - The 'Burbs|
From Without a Clue - Dr. John Watson (Ben Kingsley) is referring to the evil Professor Moriarty when he states to Sherlock Holmes (Michael Caine) "Don't worry - he knows you're stupid!" To which Holmes replies, visibly relieved, "Oh, good."
From The 'Burbs - His neighbors call out to Art Weingartner, "Art! You're wife's home .... and your house is on fire!" Art responds, "My wife's home?!?"
Out of context, they may seem somewhat vanilla. Within the framework of their respective films, however, these lines can be utterly giggle-inducing. Many experiences of my life are passed through the comedic quote-filter in my head, providing me more chances to laugh along with life as it comes at me (ask my wife how many times a week I quote The 'Burbs and she'll tell you, "Too many."). Here are some other movies enshrined in my Quotable Hall of Fame:
How about you? Which movies help you sometimes to get through the day?
