Awesome: City Slickers

City Slickers

  • Bruno Kirby (Ed Furillo) was EXTREMELY allergic to horses. Prior to each day of filming, he required an injection of allergy medication to get through the day.
    • Now THAT'S dedication!
  • Jack Palance as Curly and Duke equals TOTAL OWNAGE!
  • Phil beating the crap of the Jerkass cowboys, and making one of them think he's about to shoot him.
  • Not exactly in the movie itself, but when Jack Palance won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar, he started doing one armed pushups on stage, at age 73, mind you.
  • Mitch finally standing up to Curly - "If you're gonna kill me, then do it. If not, shut the hell up. I'M ON VACATION."- and finally earning the cowboy's respect.
  • Mitch, Ed, and Phil bringing in the herd, singing the theme to Bonanza.

City Slickers II

  • Mitch rescuing Glen just before he and the wagon he's in goes over the nearby cliff. Mitch even lampshades it.
    Glen: (freaks out when he spots Mitch) Wah! What are you doing?!
    Mitch: I'm saving you you schmuck!
