Movie Quotes turned to ski quotes... - Page 5

post #121 of 307

Skiing's like a box of chocolates...


Those look like comfortable boots. I'll bet you can ski all day in boots like that and not feel a thing.

I wish I had boots like that.


My feet hurt.


Momma always says there's an awful lot you could tell about a skier by their boots.

Where they going.

Where they been.

I've worn lots of boots.

I bet if I think about it real hard I could remember my first pair of boots.

Momma said they'd take me anywhere!

She said they was my magic boots...

Dr. Q: Philpug, this ski "The Ski", seems very special. I would like so much to hear about your love for it.
Philpug: Have you never met a the ski that inspires you to love? Until your every sense is filled with the desire to have it? You inhale her fresh wax. You run your fingers down the sharply tuned edges. You see your unborn desire to ski in the graphix, and shape of this vintage ski and know that your heart has at last found a home. Your life begins with this ski, and without her in your quiver, your desire to own skis will surely end.
Dr. Q: I have no doubt that losing a ski like this from your quiver must be painful. But you must understand, my friend, that the power of PhilPugs love for all skis must not be denied.

City Slickers

Not my idea, stolen and modified from KevinF in THIS thread

Phil: What do you think? What would be the perfect ski for this run?
Trekchick: Hot Rod Eliminator?
Phil: No. If it was Stowe, right on the money, but this? Atomic Snoop Daddy.
Finn: What's going on?
Trekchick: Phil can pick out the exact right ski for any condition. Go ahead. Challenge him.
Finn: Challenge him?
Phil: Go on.
Finn: Jackson Hole.
Phil: Volkl Mantra. Don't waste my time.
[Flings pole at Finn as if he throws down the gauntlet]
Phil: Come on. Push me.
Finn: Steamboat.
Phil: Bumps?
Finn: Trees.
Phil: I'm with you.
Finn: Aspen Grove. 18" of fresh.
Phil: Head Mojo.
Phil, Trekchick: WOOF!

My name is Maximus Powdimus Huckitonce, commander of the Armies of the Backcountry, General of the Park Spinning Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Fresh Gnar. Skier to a murdered trail, rider to a slow-speed quad. And I will have my untracked pow, in this life or the next.

Not sure if this has come up yet...

"Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Carvius "the wise"?"


"I thought not. It's not a story the PSIA would tell you. It's a PMTS legend. Darth Carvius was a Dark Lord of PMTS, so powerful and so wise he could simply use tipping to influence the skis to create carves... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from steering."

He could actually save people from steering?

"PMTS is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural."

What happened to him?

"He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice caught him steering. It's ironic he could save others from steering, but not himself."

Is it possible to learn this power?

"Not from the PSIA."

A Fish Called Wanda

Archie: You make me feel free.
Wanda: Free?
Archie: Wanda, do you have any idea what it's like being an instructor? Being so correct all the time, being so stifled by this dread of, of doing the wrong thing, of saying to someone "Did you fall?" and hearing "My binding released this morning," or saying, "Uh, do you have students?" and being told that I didn't pass my level III. You see, Wanda, we'll all terrified of skidding. That's why we're so... dead. Most of my friends are PSIA, you know, we have these piles of corpses to dinner. But you're alive, God bless you, and I want to be, I'm so fed up with all this. I want to ski the woods with you, Wanda. I'm a good skier - at least, used to be, back in the early 80's. Can we go to Mad River?
Wanda: Yeah.

Teenager: Are you a patroller?
Fletch: As far as you know.
Teenager: Are you gonna clip my ticket?
Fletch: Why? Did you ski OB?
Teenager: I sure did.
Fletch: Well, I'm not even sure that's a crime anymore. As long as you show me your powder stash.

Shall we Dance?

Moguljunkie : The Zipper line, she is the vertical expression of a horizontal wish. You have to attack her, like each mound is your reason for living. Let her rip, like your heart's being ripped from your chest. Be aggressive, like you're going to experience the most satisfaction you've ever experienced right there on the rugged slope . And then finish, like she's ruined you for life.
Buckethead: Yeah, why can't you do it like that?

Folks its the off season..........lets play around in some of these creative thread just for fun!

Atomicman: Why did Atomicman shop for more skis? Well, first of all, Atomicman likes Skis, and Ski Gear in general. Atomicman had the Day off. Atomicman said, 'Hey, a Ski swap sounds good,' plus he got an invitation.
Tom: Why is Atomicman referring to himself in the third person?
Atomicman: What are you talking about? Did you see my new Heads?

The Three Amigos....classic

El Guapo: Jefe, would you say the mountain has a plethora of snow?

Jefe: A what?

El Guapo: A *plethora*.

Jefe: Oh yes, El Guapo. Th mountain has a plethora of snow.

El Guapo: Jefe, what is a plethora?

Jefe: Why, El Guapo?

El Guapo: Well, you just told me that the mountain has a plethora of snow, and I would just like to know if you know what it means to have a plethora. I would not like to think that someone would tell someone else the mountain has a plethora of snow, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora.

Lawrence of Arabia:
T.E. Lawrence: I wasted two snowboarders. One was... yesterday? He was just a boy and I led him into thick glades. The other was... well, before Arabba. I had to execute him with my ski pole, and there was something about it that I didn't like.
General Allenby: That's to be expected.
T.E. Lawrence: No, something else.
General Allenby: Well, then let it be a lesson.
T.E. Lawrence: No... something else.
General Allenby: What then?
T.E. Lawrence: I enjoyed it.

Ghost Dog

Pierre, eh: There is something to be learned from a mogul field. When meeting with sudden bumps, you try not to get bounced and traverse quickly along the trail. But doing such things as crossing over the tops of bumps, you still get bounced. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same bouncing. This understanding extends to everything.

Ghost Dog

Highway Star: When one has made a decision to ski a line, even if it will be very difficult to succeed by advancing straight ahead, it will not do to think about doing it in a long, roundabout way. One's heart may slacken, he may miss his chance, and by and large there will be no success. The Way of the Skier is one of immediacy, and it is best to dash in headlong.

The Big Picture

Neil Sussman: I'm very, very aware... that you are seeing other skiers. And I think it's good that you are. Finally, I mean it's healthy. But, this is the thing. If you decide to sign with me, you're gonna get more than an skier. You're gonna get three people.
[Holds up four fingers]
Neil Sussman: You're gonna get an skier, a shop rat, an instructor, a shoulder to cry on, someone who knows Mad River Glen inside and out. And if anyone ever tries to poach your line, I'll grab them by the balls and squeeze 'til they're dead.

(if you haven't seen this gem of a movie, you must!!!)

Do the Right Thing

Radio Raheem: Let me tell you the story of "Right Hand, Left Hand." It's a tale of good and evil.
(raising left hand) Hard snow: It was with this hand that Cane iced his brother.
(raising right hand) Soft snow: These five fingers, they go straight to the soul of man.
The right hand: the hand of soft snow. The story of skiing is this: weather. One hand is always fighting the other hand; and the left hand is kicking much a**. I mean, it looks like the right hand, soft snow, is finished. But, hold on, stop the presses, there’s a big powder dump, the right hand is coming back. Yeah, he got the left hand on the ropes, now, that's right. Ooh, it's the devastating right and hard snow is hurt, he's down. Left-Hand hard snow K.O.ed by soft snow.

Robert the Bruce: You have skied with Weems, now ski with me!

Spindrift: I understand that you little guys start out with your skinny skis and you think they're great... and they are, they are terrific. But pretty soon, a skinny ski isn't enough. You're out on the street trying to score a nice Mid-fat, or maybe a Twin-tip. And the next thing you know, you're strung out on Pontoons or Praxis. That's serious.

Mr. Mom again

Phil: Yeah? Are you gonna ski a 888?
Finndog: Yeah. 888... 889, whatever it takes.
post #142 of 307
Spindrift: What we do know is that, as powder was waist deep, another awakening took place; that the human spirit is more powerful than any drug - and THAT is what needs to be nourished: with a bluebird day, play, friendship, family, and peaches. THESE are the things that matter. This is what we'd forgotten - the simplest things.

Love Actually

Paul Jones: Whenever I get gloomy with the state of winter, I think about a fresh powder day. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of grooming and snow guns, but I don't see that. It seems to me that skiing is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - instructors and students, gapers and gear geeks, racers and park rats, ski buddies, ski divas, snowboarders. When the single chair at Mad River was to be replaced, as far as I know none of the internet posts were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of skiing. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that skiing actually is all around.

SHH: Okay, Mr. Ski bum, let's hear your story.
Philpug: Chicks dig me, because I rarely wear goggles and when I do it's usually something unusual. But now I know why I have always lost women to skiers like you. I mean, it's not just the outfits. It's the stories that you tell. So much fun and imagination.
[points to the skier next to him]
Philpug: Finndog, you are a madman. When you stole that snowgun, and your friend tried to make it with the snowgun. I want to party with you, cowboy. If the two of us together, forget it. I'm gonna go out on a limb here. I'm gonna volunteer my leadership to this gathering. An gathering without leaders is like a ski without a big toe piece. And SHH is always gonna be here to be that big toe piece for us. I think that we owe a big round of applause to our newest, bestest buddy, and big toe piece... SHH.
[the skiers start clapping]
SHH: Well, okay, hotshot. We're gonna see what kind of skier you are.
SHH: You better hit that hot tub my little babies, or SHH with the BIG TOE PIECE is gonna see how far he can stick it up your Skiboot.

CirqueRider: Now, are either of you free riders?
Barrett: You mean like switch? Or part time?
CirqueRider: Well, it's a question we have to ask of all our new recruits.
Barrett: No, we're not free riders, but we are *willing to learn*.
Finndog: Yeah, would they send us someplace special?
CirqueRider: I'll just put that as a 'no'.

Stripes... yet again

Yuki: My philosophy: a hundred-dollar tune on a three-dollar pair of skis.
post #147 of 307

Stripes again

Can't resist. I tried, really I did.
I'm a sucker for a movie quote turned to ski quote moment:

Philpug: We're all very different people. We're not Ice Skaters, we're not Snowmobilers, we're Recreational Skiers. With a capital "S", huh? And you know what that means? Do you? That means that we've been kicked out of every decent Competitive Snow Sport in the world. We are the wretched refuse of the perfect carve world. We're the bumpers. We're the huckers. We're the Tree Skiers. We're the mutts of the ski methodology world. We can say Whooo hooooo, even on a bad day!
post #148 of 307
Philpug: The name's Phil Pug, but everybody calls me Phil. Any of you gapers call me Pug, and I'll kill you.
Finndog: Ooooooh.
Philpug: You just made the list, buddy. Also, I don't like no one touching my stuff. So just keep your meathooks off. If I catch any of you guys touching my Elan's or Krypton's, I'll kill you. And I don't like nobody touching me. Any of you gapers touch me, and I'll kill you.
Trekchick: Lighten up, Pug.

Whiteroom: Shoprat, the ski shop has spent a lot of money teaching you to mount bindings. Now mount it and adjust it.

Whiteroom: Shoprat. The only way to learn anything is to do it. Now mount the binding.
