Monday Movie Quote: FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME.

Gus is Billy’s catcher. Gus Sinski (John C. Reilly): Trying to take my hand off? Billy Chapel (Kevin Costner): Sorry. Gus Sinski: Just let me set for that juice. Warn me or something. Billy Chapel: I’m gonna throw a little harder than usual today. There’s your warning. Gus Sinski: Chap, don’t throw it away too early. Billy Chapel: Today I’m throwing hard. Gus Sinski: You and me? One more time? Billy Chapel: Why not? I am not a person that elevates Baseball to the level of religiion. Field of Dreams annoys me for that very reason. But For The Love Of The Game does get to me.

Monday Movie Quote: RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK.

Belloq (Paul Freeman): Jones, do you realize what the Ark is? It’s a transmitter. It’s a radio for speaking to God. And it is within my reach!Indy (Harrison Ford): You want to talk to God? Let’s go see him together, I’ve got nothing better to do…For me, this is one of the best scenes in ROTLA. We see Indy’s dark side, at this moment, he is ready/willing to kill Belloq in cold blood and die in the process.Temple of Doom and Last Crusade were fine (don’t even mention that fourth turkey!), but Raiders is a true classic. One that I can watch again and again.

I saw it in the theater when it first came out and I’ve owned it on Beta VHS and two different DVDs. No matter what mood I’m in, it’s the right movie. Great stars, great cameos, great music. Everything I could want in a movie. They even filmed part of it here in Milwaukee.It also has a huge percentage of quotable lines. The quote I chose I still use every time we get in the car to drive to Chicago. And now after seeing...

Monday Movie Quote: FLETCH

Alan Stanwyck (Tim Matheson): If you reject the proposition, you keep the thousand – and your mouth shut. Fletch (Chevy Chase): Does this proposition entail my dressing up as Little Bo Peep? Alan Stanwyck: It’s nothing of a sexual nature, I assure you. Fletch: Yeah, I assure you. Alan Stanwyck: One thousand just to listen? I don’t see how you can pass that up, Mr…? Fletch: Nugent. Ted Nugent.  Before I go any further, let me make it clear that the use of FLETCH for the Monday Movie Quote is by no means a suggestion that it is a great film. I realize there are fans of Gregory McDonald that hate this film and...
