Line(s) of the Day #MontyPythonsLifeofBrian

Life of Brian

All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Reg (John Cleese) in the religious satire Monty Python’s The Life of Brian (1979)

Alf Ramsey

You’ve won it once. Now go out there and win it again.

As famously said by Sir Alf Ramsey (1920 -1999), after Germany had equalised in the last minute of the 1966 World Cup final against the England team he was managing. England went on to score two goals in extra time to win 4-2.

Line(s) of the Day #SomebodythatIusedtoknow

Somebody i used to know art cover

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember.

Taken from the song ‘Somebody I used to know’ by Belgian-Australian singer songwriter Gotye, from his third album Making Mirrors (2011).

Line(s) of the Day #Stalag17

Stalag 17

In our compound there were about 630 of us, all American airmen: radio operators, gunners, and engineers. All sergeants. Now you put 630 sergeants together and, oh mother, you’ve got yourself a situation. There was more fireworks shooting off around that joint… take for instance the story about the spy we had in our barracks

Cookie (Gil Stretton) in the World War 2 classic Stalag 17 (1953).

Gr8at – Sheldon Cooper

After mentioning him in a Christmas special I knew it would only be a matter of time before I gave Mr Bazinga himself, Sheldon Cooper, the tribute of a Gr8at platform. Below are eight of the TV King of Sarcasm’s finest, and the star of hit comedy The Big Bang Theory.

The Tangible Affection Proof

Amy: Did you hold the baby?
Sheldon: I did.
Amy: And how did it make you feel?
Sheldon: Looking into the blank, innocent eyes of a creature that couldn’t begin to comprehend anything I was saying … basically another day at the office.

Raj: I don’t like bugs, okay? They freak me out.
Sheldon: Interesting. You’re afraid of insects and women. Ladybugs must render you catatonic.

Sheldon: Why are you crying?
Penny: Because I’m stupid!
Sheldon: That’s no reason to cry. One cries because one is sad. For example, I cry because others are stupid, and that makes me sad.

Leonard: You’ll never guess what just happened.
Sheldon: You went out in the hallway, stumbled into an inter-dimensional portal, which brought you 5,000 years into the future, where you took advantage of the advanced technology to build a time machine, and now you’re back, to bring us all with you to the year 7010, where we are transported to work at the think-a-torium by telepathically controlled flying dolphins?
Leonard: No… Penny kissed me.
Sheldon: Who would ever guess that?

Penny: So what do you say Sheldon, are we your X-Men?
Sheldon: No, the X-men were named for the X in Charles Xavier. Since I am Sheldon Cooper, you will be, my C-Men.

Zack: You know, I saw this great thing on the Discovery Channel. Turns out if you kill a starfish it’ll just come back to life.
Sheldon: Was the starfish wearing boxer shorts? Because you might have been watching Nickelodeon.

Penny: Look, can we just forget about this extra stuff and can you just tell me what Leonard does?
Sheldon: Alright. Leonard is attempting to learn why subatomic particles move the way they do.
Penny: Really? That’s it? Well, that doesn’t sound so complicated.
Sheldon: It’s not… it’s why Leonard does it.

Leonard: You know what, go to Hell and set their thermostat.
Sheldon: I don’t have to go to Hell. At 73 degrees, I’m there already!
