I voted for "Another line." I think everything Aunt Martha says in the movie, and of course the way Desiree Gould plays the character, is brilliant. Certainly, every time she says "goodness no, why that wouldn't do at all," it's classic.
(Kenny) "Yo Angela, how come you're so f*cked-up?"
anything Aunt martha say so I voted for her
I picked Ricky's rant, one of the funniest parts of the movie.I love this movie, can't get enough of it in fact. Who the hell would send their kids to this camp ? Everyone there is miserable, the cook is a pedophile, nut hugging short short wearers are running rampant, fake mustache wearing cops,asshole camp counselors, and a psychotic killer on the loose to boot. Don't even get me started on that one guys red jumpsuit / short short combo.Was that ever in style in any era ? Not the greatest movie ever made, but it is a lot of fun and has my favorite ending to any movie ever. I still can't understand why Meg would want to bang Mel. Then Mel shows up for their "date" looking like fucking Arnold Palmer, I tell you that is some hilarious shit man. My friends and I actually get together a few times a year to watch this. I've always said (and I believe I posted it somewhere here before) the tagline for this should have been " Sleepaway Camp, where the shorts are short, and your life expectancy is shorter."
Had to go with Ricky's rant. Hilarious stuff.
Can't I just vote for all of them?
Wow. Surprised to see I was the only one who voted for "Meet me at the waterfront after the social". I thought that would be in the top 5 or so. If you listen to the commentary, Felissa Rose says she's often asked to write that when she autographs a copy of the movie.
Being that I'm not a fan of the original and absolutely love the Pam Springsteen sequels, some of my favorite quotes are:
"Snowboy!" "Yeah!" "Time to go fishing!" "Geez, what a dildo."
"Riff, since Bobby and Maria caught the fish, I think you should clean them." "Aw, fuck that shit!"
"Party all night! Teenage Wasteland!"
"Oh, I'm a happy camper,
I love to drink and fuck.
And if you pay me money,
On my titties you can suck!"
I rewatched the movie 2 weeks ago and that line sent me into hysterics!
In time, it might become my new favorite line.
You know, I think I'm gonna have to re-watch this over the weekend. Maybe make it a July 4th tradition. I've always loved that it really re-created the upstate New York summer camp feel. I WENT to camps like this (minus the murder and girls with...well, you know). Playing baseball on a field with patchy grass and basepaths that are really just worn tracks on the field.....kids with NY City accents....man, I've BEEN there.
Sure, it's been quoted endlessly, but my favorite is still: (Judy) "She's a real carpenter's dream: flat as a board and needs a screw!"
"Look at all that young fresh chicken! Where I come from, we call em' 'baldies'." all the way.
Angela's humming is definitely creepy.
I watched Sleepaway Camp over the long weekend. Still love it.
For all Judy's complaints about Angela's figure, what's up with hers? Her breasts don't even BEGIN until midway down her chest. They're not on the upper half like most human females. I think I may have touched one or two in my life, and they're not usually where hers are...
i had to go with Anut Martha's classic line. "I tied a string around my finger so I wouldn't forget!"
"Eat shit and die, Ricky!"
"Eat shit and live, Bill!"
"Your ass stinks!" from RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP certainly deserves mention among all these classic originals. It always cracks me up.
It is moments like the classic lines in this film that makes Sleepaway Camp my all-time favorite flick. The dialogue is just so...unique. Amazing!
I honestly can't pick a favorite. I love the humming scenes, flat as a board, the crazy Aunt, "you little schemers", eat shit and live Bill...but there are some awesome ones not listed.
"...Especially after he said what a prude you are...That is the word you used, isn't it Paul?"
"'Starting to spoil the little brat already."
"Oh, little Angela here, doesn't feel like going in the water today."
"Oh she doesn't does she?"
"But then again I'm no doctor."
"Yo Angela. How come you so fucked up?"
"Ain't that right Angela? Ain't cha looney toons?"
-Kenny & Co.
"So. What are you going to do with your BIG paycheck?"
"I dunno. Maybe I'll buy a Corvette or something."
"Mind over matter..."
"Got any chips?"
"Wait till you get a load of Judy...Man oh man!"
*nods* "You'll see."
-Paul & Ricky
"*any music from the film - so 80s but creepy*"
Like really, the score feels so old, but that adds to its atmosphere. The music at the end, during the first social, in the bedroom with the girls just before Meg goes into the shower...I feel its creepiness. Yikes!
I went with "Eat shit and live," 'cuz I love a good comeback. "Carpenter's dream" is a great line, and you gotta respect a good rant, and Ricky's is one of the best.
