Everyone has favorite movies and television shows that they like to quote. Take my husband and I – we wouldn’t even know how to communicate without sprinkling “Seinfeld’ quotes into the conversation. Just a few days ago, I had to whip out the old, “I don’t know how you guys walk around with those things.” There was also mention of a frightened turtle in there somewhere.
While Seinfeld is probably one of the most quotable tv shows in history, there are also plenty of movie quotes out there. “I’ll be back” and “We’re gonna need a bigger boat” come to mind. But around here, we are a little more sophisticated. We quote classic movies. You know. Like “Caddyshack” – or one of my all time favorites, “Dumb and Dumber.”
Today we had a group of consultants arrive from New York. I met them in the lobby and as we walked back to our office, I chatted with a few of them. One gal, Gisa, had a lovely accent which I couldn’t quite place. Well, let me just outline our conversation – or at least how I heard it:
Gisa: There is a lot more snow here than in New York.
Me: Really? Indiana has more snow than the northeast?
Gisa: Yes, we have only had a dusting. A lot of people think that since I’m from Australia, I would like the cold weather, but I don’t.
