Mark Gilbert's Blog

Science and technology, served light and fluffy.

Previously Parodied Lines

Update: I’m now publishing these as a series of web comics: http://Try-Catch-Finally.com.

The following is a list of the movie lines that my blog’s tag line has parodied.  Following the line in parentheses is a link to IMDB.com for the movie where the inspiration for the parody appears. You can check out others here: http://mark-gilbert.com/category/parodied-lines/.
