Funday Furkids: Famous Movie Quotes

The Funday Furkids love to watch movies and since lockdowns provided plenty of opportunities for hoomins to catch up on the classics, their furkids did too. With an abundance of confidence – which only furkids manage to have while still being totally adorable – they tell me they are now movie experts. To prove themselves, they decided this week’s episode should be a compilation of famous movie quotes.

Now I know mondegreens are misheard lyrics but I don’t think there’s a term for misquoted movie lines. If there is, then I feel I should warn you that it would apply to most of this list.

To make it a little more fun, they asked me to ask you to match each quote to its movie. I suggest that, where necessary, you first correct the misquote, then name the movie. The answers will appear at the beginning of next week’s story (which might be about rain but they haven’t decided yet).

There are 21 movie quotes in all. That includes the one (#1) in the header image featured at the top of the story. Now for the other 20, starting at #2.

  1. This is fantastic! I was also surprised that I know most of the movies. I did love the “We’ll always have parrots”, and the psycho dalmation “Love means never having to say you’re sorry”, shoot, they’re all great.

    • It was fun to do! I had to put a limit on how many or it would’ve gone on and on! I actually set the limit at 20 but there had to be just this one more…!
      Answers will be at the top of next week’s episode.

  2. {{{Michelle}}} – I recognize 12 of them even though I haven’t seen all the movies those 12 came from. They have to be *really* famous movie quotes for me to know them. LOL. 1, 2, 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, & 20 are lines I recognize and could place the movies in question – if not necessarily the correct title. 1 & 13 – Star Wars and Snow White – are the only ones I’ve actually seen. moar {{{HUGS}}}

    • I think I’ve seen all but 5 or 6 of the films. Also, when I checked, I discovered I’d ascribed two of the quotes to the wrong films altogether! There was one quote that was unfamiliar to me and when I looked it up, I found it was from one of the films I had actually seen, probably at a movie night during my uni days which, in my defence, was decades ago! (Friends who were members of the university film society would drag me along every now and then when they thought I needed to be “taken out of myself”. I’ve no memory of why I never joined the society because I always enjoyed the films!)

  3. BTW – Donna Andrews (she writes very whimsical murder mysteries) has one entitled “We’ll Always Have Parrots” – it’s hysterical of course. If folks aren’t familiar with her work, at least read the first one “Murder with Peacocks” so you’ll know who everybody is. moar {{{Michelle}}}

    • I’ve read about half a dozen of her books and loved every one of them! But that was a few years ago when not all of them were available on kindle. I must check them out again and start once more from the beginning.

      • I’m not up to date with her. She has at least 2 out in the last few years that I haven’t read. I get them from our library and they get them fairly quickly but not immediately after they publish. Of course haven’t been to the library for almost a year now anyway. And won’t be any time soon. But when I do go back, I know I’ll have at least 2 books to look forward to. LOL. Definitely see what you can find – and enjoy.

        • That’s been the wonderful thing about having a kindle. I can get all my books via wifi, no contact involved. I took out a membership to KindleUnlimited too. For around $12 a month, you can read as many books as you like on the KindleUnlimited list (which has hundreds of books on it every month) and download up to 10 at a time.
          I also bought a cover for my kindle so it feels like a book to hold. Better still, the cover folds into a stand so I can prop it up on the bed beside me and read it without holding it. Of course Loula then comes and knocks it over because petting is more important!

          • Kindle’s a blessing for those who can use it. I can’t really. Print doesn’t bother my eyes but pixels sure do. So reading anything online becomes a problem after a while. Tweets are short so I can take breaks and even then I start having trouble after several hours online. But I know folks it’s the opposite – they love the online and print gives them problems. (& of course petting is more important. ?)

        • I just checked Amazon for her books and there’s a kindle bundle of the first 18 of the Meg Langslow books on special! I bought it! I can now read them all in order starting back with the first one again! Thank you so much for mentioning her because I would not have thought to look for her books if you hadn’t and I would’ve missed out on the special!
          I just checked and there are 29 books in that series now. I’ll gradually buy them on kindle until I have all of them.

    • Incidentally, what do you think of the idea of starting a book club here? I’d favour sticking to light reading so the whole thing is fun. That means we could begin with the first Donna Andrews book. I’m thinking of calling it PoliBooks or PoliReading – what do you think? And how often should we meet to chat about our book selection? Once a month? Once a fortnight? I’ve thought about doing it on Twitter but it’s just too difficult to organise it there. Here would be ideal.

  4. It’s really hard to pick a favorite but I’ll go with “We’ll always have parrots.” Thanks for another brilliant Sunday read.

  5. I don’t know as far as my participation in it. Sounds like fun if there are several folks who want to. Reading online is an issue for me. Reading lengthy things even more so.
    And while I can get Andrews’ books at the library I can’t guarantee when a given volume will be available. Nor could I guarantee when I could get any other book chosen. (Although as far as Andrews’ books are concerned, considering there are something like 30 books in the series now you could do her for years. LOL)

    It would definitely be better here than twitter. As to how often, I guess that would depend on whether you were planning multiple meetings for the same book or one book per meeting. If multiple meetings for the same book, the fortnight would be better. If one book per meeting then monthly works. Or of course more often if folks wanted it that way (and read fast enough).

    • We’ll hold off until everyone has been vaccinated so folks can get copies of the month’s book from their local library.

      I think it would be fun to dedicate the next two and a half years to Donna Andrews books! But then that would mean other authors would miss out and that would be a shame. Perhaps just choose the first book in a series so folks can then read the rest of the series if they want to.
