While I hate correcting people (actually, that's a lie. I love it.), This is an often improperly stated quote. In actuality, the line is "What we have here is failure to communicate." That extra "a" is thrown in much of the time.

I was rather proud of this one..
"Well the world needs ditch diggers too."

On another note, at the new job our receiving has a volume control for the overhead speaker. My first act once left alone as a manager at my new job was...

The best part about it is after I added the 11, the other manager that I will be working most closely with walked in and noticed the change and got a pretty good laugh out of it. Things are looking up. :lol:

I was quoting Newman's parody of the line right before he gets killed. I do believe it has an "a".

Technically Strother's version starts "[w]hat we've got here," or at least my copy on Use Your Illusion II does.

Well, that's what I get for correcting someone. I knew the moment I did, I would screw something else up. I was just waiting to see what part I screwed up.

I've used most of the regular FilmWise quotes. I use "goes to eleven" on a weekly basis.

Also, it's "what we('ve) got here is... (a) failure to communicate". It's actually kinda hard to make out exactly what he says. Surely anyone who has UYI2 should know that.

"At least now I'm in my thirties, I can hold my drink."

Which is a bit silly because I'm not in my thirties, but I can hold my drink, so whatever.

A few years ago, coming out of my office to find a group of people in the hall filling out their brackets for an office Final Four pool:

I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!


The sad part was, no one got it. :?

I just disrupted our meeting with some paraquoting(TM):

Manager: I want answers.

Me: You think you're entitled? You want answers? You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!!1!



I expect my P45 shortly.

I hope they saw the funny side :D

Also use "Good luck, wacoy" frequently.

Seem to be saying "I'm gonna need a bigger desk" quite a lot lately, seeing as bits of paper with information on Cardiff, Swansea and South Wales in general seem to have taken over my workspace.
Statler: Well, how do you like the film?
Waldorf: I've seen detergents leave a better film than this.

Unfortunately most of the quotes I'm using won't be as funny for you as they're in french....

But one I'm using very often is the translated one about the "two kinds of people, my friend: Those with <insert name of car, great poker hand, any fnar fnar pun> and those who dig. You dig."

Managed to slip in an obscure-ish one tonight when leaving the pub. One of my work colleagues is going skiing in France next week, so as I was leaving I shouted "bring me back something French" :D
