The Raven's Collected Quotes

Here's something different. Not another movie quote thread, but this time it's time to let that wittiness of fellow raveners shine.

The layout of the game is pretty simple. While checking out the boards, you see a post that contains something in it that should be immortalized, you quote it and post it in this thread.

What exactly then? Something you see worth some extra visibility, as long as it's been posted on the boards and not by you. It could be one sentence in a lengthy rant you find amusing or worth an applause, an especially fitting comment to another member's post, unintentional humor caused by a typo, etc... anything.

I for one love the idea of a "Raven's Greatest Hits" thread. But honestly, I can't remember the last time someone here made me lol, rotfl, lmao, or bwl. But I'm keeping my eyes peeled.

This made me laugh in 2008.

I thought we agreed to keep from posting our own witticisms, Mordy.

The first one is genuinely funny.

What can I say? I am deeply touched that a post of mine made it onto this thread so quickly...maybe I'll get another zinger on here this year!

...er Professor. Teaching everyone how to rightfully use Sam Earch, ay? I love it.

I won't cite my sources, but I am always fond of the "I'm leaving now, I mean it" stuff; followed two weeks later with a "Okay, almost said my final goodbye's...." etc ad nauseam.

Or was that a reference to the original purpose of this thread? If so, well... I don't think you need even the old Sammie to find the answer for that.

Better honors have never been uttered

From the "Indy IV as a wrap up of the series", as quoted in "where paths crosses, but never again...." thread

Quote:
Originally Posted by Joe Brody
Thematically, the only story left to tell is one where Indiana Jones grapples with his inner demons. Narratively -- and this is where the supernatural part comes in -- this story could be told by Indiana Jones somehow being haunted by 'ghosts' from his past.

Think of each of the films, each offers a neat range of dead characters:

Raiders
(1) Forrestal -- imagine Indy somehow being the cause of the competitor's passing
(2) Belloq -- Indy's shadowy near-equal
(3) Abner Ravenwood -- Indy's alienated teacher. Is he dead or not?

Temple of Doom
(1) Wu Han -- Indy's friend who dies assisting Indy. In passing, he happily notes that he goes off on the 'great adventure' first

Last Crusade
(1) Elsa Schneider -- conflicted soul who dies on the verge of grace

After a lifetime of fighting demons (Nazi's and cultists) and patching things up with Dad, what is left but to deal with the demons from the past?

For me, what's key to my theory is (i) Lucas's wrapping-it-up statement, (ii) the larger supernatural element hinted at by Lucas, (iii) the rumor about the past leading ladies being involved, (iv) the acknowledgement that Ford's age is relevant, (v) the desire to tell a different type of story, (vi) the fact that the '50's represent a new modern era and that Indy's 'older' magical world is fading, and (vii) the reality that the '50's don't offer any good villains, so why not some of the old dead ones like Forrestal or Belloq? I could see a story where Indy has to go on a quest into his own past . . . and surprise, perhaps not everyone that we thought dead actually is.

[I've got to hand it to Pale Horse and Deadlock, you guys are like the monks who preserved Western culture during the dark ages keeping this brainstorming going.]

I like the Austrian way better.

Comedy gold.

So, Canyon (Lucky turns on the Raven radio, lights a fire in the fireplace. The sounds of Barry White can softly be heard wafting through the bar's sound system as he leads Canyon to a quiet corner of the bar) So, Canyon, how you doin'? You know, we've known each other for a year now, so when are you coming out to the States, baby?
