She's a lumberjack and she's okay

JD's quotes:

Hot Shots

Going backwards, here's a post on Hot Shots!, the world's best movie parody of Top Gun!...How many can there be? I've already covered Hot Shots! Part Deux, it's backwards because they ran on TV that way. Not my fault. Click on the Charlie Sheen tag at the bottom for the other post. Here is my list of most memorable quotes from Hot Shots!:

1. Ramada (played by Valeria Golino): Lieutenant, you're staring.

Topper (played by Charlie Sheen): No, not-not really. I'm lost in your eyes. That is the whitest white part of the eye I've ever seen...Do you floss?

Ramada: You're very confident aren't you?

2. Lt. Commander James Block (played by Kevin Dunn): Topper Harley?

Topper: Once, perhaps. Now I am called Tukachinchilla.

Block: What does it mean?

Topper: Fluffy Bunnyfeet

3. Kent (played by Cary Elwes): Something's changed, hasn't it? It's not another woman is it? I just couldn't compete with that.

Ramada: No, of course you couldn't.

4. Ramada: I don't want to be alone...and by the way, I can go all night like a lumberjack.

5. Topper before a hilarious parody of 9 and a half weeks: So, I take it you've been with a man before.

Ramada: I'm a virgin, ...I'm just not very good at it.

6. Topper: My Uncle used to tell me that not playing to win is like sleeping with your sister. Sure, she's a great piece of tail with a blouse full of goodies but it's just illegal.

Block: Jesus, Topper, come on.

Topper: Then you get into that whole inbred thing. Kids with no teeth who only play the banjo, eat apple sauce through a straw, pork farm animals.

Block: Topper, that's enough.

Topper: I think you get my point, sir.

An interesting or possibly uninteresting piece of information:

Fans of Two and a Half Men, starring Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer can see the two of them in a much earlier collaboration in Hot Shots! as not only is Charlie the star but Jon Cryer plays Jim 'Wash Out' Pfaffenbach along with him. Alright, so, maybe it wasn't completely interesting...sue me.

Check out a scene from Hot Shots! during ''Dead Meat'' Thompson's funeral...Funerals, definitely a breeding ground for laughs. This contains one of my favorite funny funerals...of which there are many. See Lloyd Bridges as Admiral Benson, who works in a Godfather parody during the eulogy and Heidi Swedberg as Dead Meat's wife. Seinfeld fans will recognize Heidi who played George Costanza's unfortunate fiance.
