Quotes: Name's the Same


*gasp* "He's named like my name!"
Homer Simpson, The Simpsons, "Homer to the Max"

"Puny man not Phoenix! Phoenix a bird lady. Hulk confused!"

"Why should I change my name? He's the one who sucks!"
Michael Bolton on Michael Bolton, Office Space

Another Man: Well, it was a pretty memorable gathering. All those wonderful people who'd been in the Theatre fifty years or more—Mary and Ethel and—
Ella: Mary Martin and Ethel Merman!
Man: No. Mary Pickford and Ethel Barrymore.


"No, not 28 Days Later. Although some people infected by the rage virus might have spiced it up just a bit."
Miles Antwiler on 28 Days (2000)

Jay: So, Mike, would you recommend Birdemic?
Mike: I would recommend Birdemic. (beat) I would also recommend Birdman starring Michael Keaton/Michael Caine, and Emma Stone/Stone Phillips. (confused) Who else was in this movie? Zack Galligan/Zach Galifianakis?
Jay: Gallagher was in the movie, yeah. He smashed some watermelons on stage, it was great.
Half in the Bag on Birdman (2014)

"Lindsay Lohan talked to The Mirror about her first performance of Speed-The-Plow that some say was a disaster because she didn’t know her lines and the audience laughed at her ass. LiLo says that the negative shit hos say about her bounces off of her freckled zombie skin and she doesn’t care what the haters think. The haters can eat it, because LiLo ran into Al Pacino at a hotel recently and he told her he was proud of her for doing theater. Yeah, she probably didn’t run into THEE Al Pacino, she ran into some random dude who happens to be named Al Pacino. And he didn’t tell her he was proud of her for doing for theater, he asked her what her hourly rate is."
Michael K., "Lindsay Lohan On Her Messy First Performance Of Speed-The-Plow: “It Could’ve Been A Disaster. I Could’ve Not Shown Up.'"

"A lot of people often confuse Nina Hagen with another German speaking pop singer from the 80's: Nena, of '99 Luftballons' fame. It's an easy mistake to make. After all, the odds of Germany offering up just one performer with any cultural importance in a given century are astronomical enough, but two with practically the same name? Astounding!"
Interesting Motherfuckers — Nina Hagen

"Cassandra Cain was saddled with what may actually be the worst name in comics history. I mean, really, I love an ominous biblical reference as much as the next person, but comics maybe should’ve knocked off the whole 'Cain' thing once Marvel introduced an evil clone of Spider-Man who could melt your face with his spider-powers and had to spell it 'KAINE' just to get through. Along the same lines, 'Cassandra' is a great name, but there are roughly two hundred Cassandras in comics, and the only one who even comes close to giving that name any significance is Judge Anderson. It could not have been more generic if her name was Secrette I. Dentity."
