That's the fact, Jack!

Bill Murray, Stripes, 1981

I used it today in another thread.

Often quoted as That's a fact, Jack!, but the transcribed script has "the"

Most of my favorite quotes come from an old, old Val Kilmer movie Top Secret. (From makers of Airplane! and Airplane 2, The Sequel) Here's the best of the best:

Don't take it so hard Nick. Life is filled with it's little miseries. Each of us in his own way must learn to deal with adversity in a mature and adult fashion. [sneezes, then looks at hands]

AAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! [jumps out window]

Ahhhhh, Deja Vu.

For Bogleheads struggling to determine their risk tolerance, I like Clint Eastwood's line:
A man's got to know his limitations.
For Bogleheads for whom greed has overcome fear, I like Tom Petty's oxymoron:
Too much ain't enough.
Better than Bogle's "Enough", if you ask me. Not from a movie, but I still like it.

Yes, but nothing tops Die Hard 2 where Bruce Willis says his trademark goodbye line to the bad-guys in a TV-edited version.

"Yippie Ki Ye, Mister Falcon". (Without the edit is a different 2 word MF saying. )

I also like Ahnuld's many sayings, but find myself constantly telling my wife "it's not a tumuh" when one of us has a headache. Kingergarden Cop will live on for that line alone.

Love that movie.

This is off topic a bit, but many of us in corporate America espouse waiting the "Wally period" (from the Dilbert comic strip) before doing any assigned task. Searched for the original strip but have been unable to find it, but the basic premise is that "most tasks become unnecessary within seven days."

I use this one (or the last sentence) all the time - from Caddyshack.

So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.
