Sunday's With Sue

It's a little late today! My animals actually let me sleep in a bit this morning, then we went to lunch with mom and dad, and I've been taking down the rest of the bat cave, doing laundry etc. Anyway, it was great to see mom and dad! Mom I really, really like your latest hair color! I know I told you at lunch, but I really do like it!

So, last week's quote was from the very funny Tommy Boy! Em was first to guess, then Haley, then Matt, then B, then Cat. You did it again Em! It was extrememly difficult to find quotes from that movie that we all don't use all the time! Almost every sentence from that movie is a great quote! Cam and I actually watched the movie just a couple of hours ago, Comedy Central was playing it.

This week I'm doing something different. I'm doing a quote from a TV show. It's a show that I know most of us love dearly. If you don't like it, let me know, and I'll stick to movies. But, if I'm going to stick to movies you guys have to send me more titles! I didn't get a very good response when I asked for titles from you guys before. Okay, here's the quote:

Person #1- Mother Nature made Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, and me.
Person #2-Right--The steep, the deep, and the creep.

Good luck!

I don't know about this one? I have a feeling it is probably addled somewhere in my brain.

Even though I may not get this, I am fine with you using quotes from other sources. The amount of movies that we have all seen and love must be fairly slim, so I think you should just do what you want, if we know it fine, if not, fine (maybe next time).

Sue said...

I like your atitude! I can do what I want! I did decide last night that I think I'll post Sunday's with Sue at night. That way, Cat has more of a fair chance to get it.

This quote is probably somewhere in your brain.

Matt said...

I am down with quotes from other sources as well. But I will try to come up with more Wright classics.

I don't know this quote but I think it would be fun to try things other than movies. By the way, I am home sick today and I just watched Young @ Heart and I loved it! It was great. You were right Sue, I laughed and cried. Joe was my favorite, that was sad. I think my favorite part was when Fred sang "Fix You" at the end, that was awesome, made me cry. I am pregnant though...

Sue said...

It would make you cry pregnant or not. Fred singing "Fix You" made me lose it. Who sings that originally? I heard it at the grocery store the other day and almost started crying again! I'm glad you liked it. Those old people are adorable. The opening scene with the 90+ year old singing the Clash is the best! And aren't the videos hilarious? Staying Alive when he's thowing those bowling balls made me laugh so hard!

B said...

It's Coldplay that sings "Fix You" originally, and that was an amazing performance. I love the music video for "Womans Man" or whatever that song is called. Joe and Fred were the best. That choir director was scary though. He would've made me cry.

B said...

Ok, now I am ONLY getting updates when Haley posts something. This is wierd!

Sue said...

Know wonder I didn't know who sang it originally. I'm not a Coldplay fan. Cam and I also liked the "We're on a Road to Nowhere" video, it's a Talking Heads song.

Sue said...

I forgot to add in my last comment, what is wrong with the choir director? I thought he was really cool. What a great thing for someone to dedicate their life to. There is no way I could work with old people in any capacity. I would get way to close to them and then they would die. I couldn't handle that. In this movie alone 2 of them died during the filming then the 90+ year old lady died after it was filmed. I don't know how someone can handle that much death.

B said...

He does amazing work, that's true, but he just has a personality that scares me. Maybe it's just music teachers that scare me. I've never had one that didn't make me cry. I think they have to have a certain tough personality to keep everyone organized, and that just doesn't mesh with me.

Sue said...

Poor B, so much scarring. I had a ballet teacher when I was like 5 that used to carry around this stick thing and smack our ankles when our feet weren't in a perfect "first position" or whatever. But I don't think it scarred me for life, I just thought she was kind of a b@#$!

Marcus and Haley Crook said...

Haha! I agree with B about him scaring me a little, just because you would have to be to get a performance together like that. They were awesome though, I really liked it. Joe was like my favorite person on there! I was so sad when he died. I also really liked the part when they sang for the prisoners, I thought that was uplifting. Yeah, Fred's performance was the bomb. He has a great voice and I love that song. I used to not really like Coldplay but a few of their songs I love.

Sue said...

Well so far I've only had one person guess, and it's Cat! And she got it exactly right, down to who person 1 and 2 are. So start scratching your noodles people! (That's a noodle scrather-Ned Flanders). I know at least one more of you can get this.

Here is the Wednesday hint:

Person #1- This could've happened to any of us.

Person #2- Yeah. Somewhere out there, there's an elephant with your name on it.

I liked the choir director. Not scary at all comparied to Sister Howell who is directing a group of us rehersing for the Thanksgiving Sacrament meeting. Now, she is scary and yells! I had a very old teacher for senior english in 1955 that was a returned christien missionay from China. She was a mean ol' b.... and when she got mad at me for sleeping or something, she would point her finger at me and yell in chinese, but her finger was broken and the tip would point off to the right and it looked so funny I just had to laugh and she would get madder and madder and then the whole class would laugh. Her name was Miss Barton and she looked about eighty to me, but she was probabally around sixty. Fun time at ol' Chula Vista High...go Spartins!

Cat said...

Oh, Dad. That story about your teacher just cracked me up! Got mad at you for sleeping! And please, don't stop posting your randomness, they are all of our favorites. Answer to worst non-celebrity celebrity: Kim Kardashian.

Emily said...

Haha! My favorite part was hearing that dad used to sleep through his school classes. I don't know a meeting or such where I have sat by dad and he didn't fall asleep. It was a funny image of young dad doing the same thing.

Sue said...

That is a great story dad! Were you one of the class clowns? I had a Mrs. Barton for 9th grade english. She had a weird body shape and her butt was way up high on her back. Me and my friends called her "butt back barton". We were way into alliteration back then.

Pops said...

Sleeping in church, huh! I'll have you know that all the time I was in the bishopric or Bishop in Mapleton, I didn't sleep once (that I remember) not that I did't get sleepy. I remember Richard Barrett sleeping all the time on the stage durning Sacrament meetings and we all laughed behind his back. Not me!!!
As for class clown, I was so shy I didn't make much noise in high school, but when I did it was pretty funny. I was sort of the leader with my jeep club pals and hot rodding buddies later. We had a lot of sober laughs mingled with cigar smoke.
