Funny: William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet
  • The film manages to combine Have a Gay Old Time, Parenthetical Swearing and This Is for Emphasis, Bitch! in one sentence just by putting a minor bit of emphasis on the end of Shakespeare's original line:
    "Bring me my longsword, ho!"
    • And again:
    Mercutio: Make it a word, and... a blow.
    Tybalt: You shall find me apt enough for that, sir. And you will give me occassion.
    Mercutio: (walking away suggestively) Could you not take some occassion without giving?
  • All of the cute little allusions to Shakespeare's lines dotted here and there as ad slogans. The best one: "I'll send it posthaste!" In the movie, "Post-Haste" is a courier service, like FedEx (note the typeface).
  • 'JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLIEEEEEEET!'
  • The Montague boys leering and shouting 'I am a pretty piece of flesh'... at a group of nuns.
