See any good movies last night?

I love movies. I once worked at a movie theater, and the experience was amazing. I am now taking evening classes for a degree in Media Art, and one of the classes is Intro to Film Study. It is exactly what it sounds like. I watch one film a week and then discuss it in class.

With that in mind, for over a month now I've compiled a list of movie quotes, and applied them to members of the Astros. Included are those on the field, as well as those in the dugout and the front office. As you'll notice not everyone in the dugout or in the office has made it on the list. I've racked my brain and I just don't have the mental library to get a good quote with absolutely everyone, but maybe you do.

The List:


Brad Mills - "Well he's gonna walk Beck to pitch to Parkman obviously Taylor's thinking... I don't know WHAT the hell he's thinking. " Major League II

Brad Arnsberg - "Relax, all right? Don't try to strike everybody out. Strikeouts are boring; besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls. It's more democratic." Bull Durham

Jeff Bagwell - "You had me at 'hello'" Jerry Maguire

More after the jump


Chris Johnson - "Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." Forest Gump

Jason Castro - "If you can dodge a car you can dodge a ball" - Dodgeball

Hunter Pence - "I'm sorry, Bruce. These boys get that syrup in 'em, they get all antsy in their pantsy."  Super Troopers

Michael Bourn - "I feel the need—the need for speed!" Top Gun

Carlos Lee - "I want you all over that ball like a fat kid on a cupcake!" Van Wilder

Geoff Blum - "I’m too old for this..." Lethal Weapon

Brett Myers - "I ain't got time to bleed." Predator

Wandy Rodriguez - "There’s no place like home" Wizard of Oz

Felipe Paulino - "I'll be back." The Terminator

Brian Moehler - "Houston, we have a problem." Apollo 13

Matt Lindstrom - "I want you to know that I was rooting for you. Know that. " Pirates of the Caribbean

Tim Byrdak - "GET OFF MY PLANE!" Air Force One

Drayton McLane - "You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads! Now evidently, my cycloptic colleague informs me that that can't be done. Can you remind me what I pay you people for? Honestly, throw me a bone here. What do we have?" Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Ed Wade - "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way." Who framed Roger Rabbit

Bobby Heck - "Roads? Where we're going we don't need - roads." Back to the Future
