Best Line from "Best In Show"

The final day of the Westminster Dog Show should trigger one thing: Your favorite lines and/or moments from "Best In Show," one of the funniest "sports movies" of all time.

The "Buck Loughlin" TV analyst character is the most spot-on satire of the sports-TV "jockocracy" (h/t: Cosell) in the history of popular culture.

I can't even pick a favorite quote, there are so many. Here's one from Buck, particularly appropriate for a sports blog:

"Now tell me, which one of these dogs would you want to have as your wide receiver on your football team?"

In the Comments, add in your favorite quote from "Best In Show."

Buck Laughlin - "And to think that in some countries these dogs are eaten."

Maureen said...

"I went to one of those obedience places once... it was all going well until they spilled hot candle wax on my private parts."

Fred Willard definitely got the best lines in this movie.

M said...

Two of my favorites-

"I don't think I could ever get used to being poked and prodded like that. I told my proctologist one time, 'Why don't you take me out to dinner and a movie sometime?'"
"Yes I remember you said that last year."

"I'll tell you something, if you live in my neighborhood and you're dressed like that, you'd better be a hotel doorman."

We met at Starbucks. Not at the same Starbucks but we saw each other at different Starbucks across the street from each other

Mike said...

"Peanut. Hazelnut. Cashew nut. Macadamia nut. Pine nut. Pistachio nut. Red pistachio nut. Natural, all natural white pistachio nut."

Maybe not my favorite line (anything by Fred Willard trumps anything else from the movie), but it always cracks me up.

Whenever something is missing in my house, inevitably the words come screaming through the walls:

"WHERE'S BUSY BEE? You run and you go get busy bee! You look at me. Don't you look at the fatass and losers, you look at me!"

Tom said...

"Peanut. Hazelnut. Cashew nut... Macadamia nut." That was the one that would send her into going crazy. She'd say, "Would you stop naming nuts!" And Hubert used to be able to make the sound, he couldn't talk, but he'd go "rrrawr rrawr" and that sounded like Macadamia nut.

"That is one happy fella!"

John Radcliff said...

"We could talk or not talk all day and still find things to not talk about. "

"Can I see that pepperoni? I just want to hold it."

"My mom was always there for the unconditional love. That was her job. And it worked great for my family until she killed herself."

"You stiched that yourself? Well you must be very proud Mary."

Buck Laughlin: "Excuse me if this off the subject a little bit, but just take a guess at how much I can bench press. Come on, what do you think? Take a guess. 315 pounds, at the top of my game, maxing out at 500! "
