Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads...

I know I don't normally post on Sundays, but I couldn't resist signing up for Ellie Garrat's Top Ten Horror/Sci Fi Movie Quotes BlogFest.  EGTTHSFMQBF for short.

So, I am not a big Horror fan- actually I don't remember the last time I saw a horror movie...so most of my quotes are from Sci Fi flicks.  Although, I do love me some classic Scream (is that even considered horror?)

EGTTHSFMQBF is especially difficult because I hardly remember the names of movies, let alone actual quotes.  I'm always like, "Hey, remember that one movie, with that one guy who said that really funny line?  What was it...umm...." And then I sit there trying to remember while my mind is COMPLETELY blank and everyone stares at me waiting for the punch line.  And then like, 5 hours later I'll be sleeping and all of a sudden I'll sit up and bed and yell "Groundhog Day!" (which btw, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow so Spring will be early- thank goodness we have groundhogs to tell us what our weather will be like.  Can't trust those weather guys)

And I slipped in my favorite TV show ever, just so ya know.  Because it totally deserves a spot on this list.
Okay so here's my top ten in no particular order:



Marty: "Wait a minute Doc...ah...are you telling me, you made a time machine...out of a DeLorean?" 
Doc: "The way I see it...if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with style?"
          ~Back To The Future






[on the ship's intercom] This is the captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then - explode.
          ~Malcom, Serenity








"I'm the thing that monsters have nightmares about. And right now, you and me are gonna show 'em why."
          ~Buffy Season 7










 "Dammit, man! I'm a doctor, not a physicist!"
           ~Bones, Star Trek (2009)









Do you like scary movies?
          ~Scream






"If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious shit."
          ~Doc, Back To The Future







 "E.T. phone home"  "Beeee goood" 
           ~E.T.





Jay: Did you ever flashy-thing me?
Kay: No.
Jay: I ain't playing with you, K. Did you ever flashy-thing me?
Kay: No.
          ~Men in Black





"For someone who was never meant for this world...I must confess I'm suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I'm not leaving. Maybe I'm going home."
          ~Vincent Freeman, Gattica





"You know, somehow "I told you so" just doesn't quite say it.
           ~Spooner, IRobot

Great list. I've been reading many that I forgot about.

Liz Pezzuto said...

Great list! Bonus points for BTTF represented twice. :)

DL Hammons said...

Kudo's!!! Excellent list. I could have used a dozen quotes from Serenity alone! :)

Meredith said...

Haha, I love this list! Especially the Buffy quote--my fave heroine ever!

Ellie said...

Yay! I'm so pleased you decided to play. An awesome list of quotes, and I can't believe I forgot about the Back to the Future films!

Yay for Gattica! I was trying to remember the name of that movie for this list, and I couldn't dredge it up, I was hoping someone would post it. Great quote from it too. I'm just gonna have to watch it again.

You're the first I've read to list I, Robot, too, great quote!

Back to the Future - loving that so many are listing that one. Another one I'll have to watch again!

erica and christy said...

Fun list - I'm impressed! My husband is great at remembering quotes, but I'm the type that can't even remember if I've seen a certain movie!

Colene Murphy said...

Great list and awesome movies/shows!! Ahh You always make me want to watch Buffy!!

M Pax said...

Pretty much all of Serenity is quotable. I'm excited about the upcoming sequel to the new Star Trek. Awesome movie.

Danette said...

Ha! We both picked the Bones quote from the new Star Trek (and I can't wait until the new movie comes out!) Great list!!!

Elaine AM Smith said...

You have some great quotes. You included some movies I wanted to squeeze in - Star Trek, MIB and the brilliant Gattica. I could have covered walls with Buffy quotes but again - that would have gotten me my own padded cell and that would be a shame.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

WooHoo for Serenity and I,Robot.

Trisha Leaver said...

Great list. Love the one from IRobot.

Mara Nash said...

Great list! BTTF ranks up among my all time faves, too. It's so incredibly quotable.

And despite the complaints from Star Trek purists, I really like the 2009 version. Urban was perfect as Bones!

Witless Exposition said...

Great list! I'm glad you included the new Star Trek movie, I really loved it. Hopefully they'll keep putting out more good sci-fi!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Explode! Damn, I missed that Serenity quote. Good list, Abby.

brokenbiro said...

Great list! I've never seen 'Serenity' but it's popped up in a few lists today so I'm going to have to seek it out! First I've seen from Men in Black but I have a git feeling it must have lots of great lines in it... like you, I struggle to remember!

Dave said...

I love that Serenity quote it really sets the scene, but I could probably have come up with dozens and dozens of Buffy quotes, so I'm glad I stuck to movies.

Woo hoo! A list where I've seen EVERY thing on here ~ :) But, you're making me feel a little like a traitor...I totally should have included some BtVS on my list. It's wonderfully quotable. Love it!

Jennie Bailey said...

Awesome list!! I laughed outloud at the Serenity quote. I completely left that off my list and am now kicking myself.
