Obscure, Surreal and Head-Scratching Movie Quotes
In general, the measure of a good movie quote is how long it sticks in your mind. Some achieve it by being repeated (catchphrases, arc quotes...) and others are delivered only once but are so puzzling that you keep repeating them over and over. They're not necessarily meant to convey obscure or surreal meanings, sometimes they're just so strange and nonsensical that they almost have a ring to it. This poll is about quotes that don't make sense when you first hear them but sound so attractive to the ear even if they make you go "huh?" Read each quote -if you know the film, you'll probably agree; if you don't, it's even better. Which of these head-scratching quotes, quick exchanges or dialogues is your favorite? A poll vote without a discussion here is like a soup without a mustache!

When Life Gives You Lemons... Watch a Jack Lemmon Movie

Filmmakers took notice and cast him in so many different kinds of roles that Lemmon's great versatility became part of his appeal among audiences: when we're down and want to feel understood or gain insight, we can watch one of his dramas; when we're down and want to be distracted and laugh, we can cheer up with one of his comedies. No matter what life gives you, there's a Jack Lemmon film to help. Which of his performances have you most appreciated? Discuss Jack Lemmon or the poll here.
