I Love this film. No matter how many times I watch it, it still makes me smile. My favourite Lines are:

"No we're not gonna FUCKING do Stonehenge."

and

"If I've told them once, I told them a thousand times to put Spinal Tap first and the puppet show last."

and

"Why are we going to an airforce base?"

Nigel showing off his Les Paul...

N:"The sustain, listen to it!"

M:"I'm not hearing anything..."

N:"You would, though, if it were playing"

The scene where Nigel shows a guitar "no-one can touch"... (Can't remember the dialogue)
And of course: "This one goes to 11"

Yes very funny indeed. Also listen to some of the lyrics such as Big Bottom reminds me of Van Halen Bottoms Up.

"I love her each week day, each velvety cheek day, if you know what I mean?"

"My baby fits me like a pink tuxedo, I like to sink her with my pink torpedo...."

Should be " My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo, I like to sink her with my pink torpedo..."

I think?

"Hello Cleveland!...HELLO CLEVELAND!"

Did anyone get the 2 DVD special edition?

It`s got an hour of outtakes that are just as funny as the original film plus music videos etc.

Didn`t their `92 comeback suck?

Marty DiBergi: David St. Hubbins... I must admit I've never heard anybody with that name.

David St. Hubbins: It's an unusual name, well, he was an unusual saint, he's not a very well known saint.

Marty DiBergi: Oh, there actually is, uh... there was a Saint Hubbins?

David St. Hubbins: That's right, yes.

Marty DiBergi: What was he the saint of?

David St. Hubbins: He was the patron saint of quality footwear.

-----------------

Artie Fufkin: You know what I want you to do? Will you do something for me?

David St. Hubbins: What?

Artie Fufkin: Do me a favor. Just kick my ass, okay? Kick this ass for a man, that's all. Kick my ass. Enjoy. Come on. I'm not asking, I'm telling with this. Kick my ass.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

David St. Hubbins: I do not, for one, think that the problem was that the band was down. I think that the problem *may* have been, that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being *crushed* by a *dwarf*. Alright? That tended to understate the hugeness of the object.

Ian Faith: I really think you're just making much too big a thing out of it.

Derek Smalls: Making a big thing out of it would have been a good idea.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
David St. Hubbins: We say, "Love your brother." We don't say it really, but...

Nigel Tufnel: We don't literally say it.

David St. Hubbins: No, we don't say it.

Nigel Tufnel: We don't really, actually mean it.

David St. Hubbins: No, we don't believe it either, but...

Nigel Tufnel: But we're not racists.

David St. Hubbins: But that message should be clear.

[Reading a review of the album "Shark Sandwich"]
Marty DiBergi: Two words: shit sandwich.

David St. Hubbins: It's such a fine line between stupid, and clever.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nigel Tufnel: It's like, how much more black could this be? and the answer is none. None more black.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Nigel is talking about his favourite amp]
Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and -
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel Tufnel: [Pause] These go to eleven.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Nigel Tufnel is showing Marty DiBergi one of his favorite guitars]
Nigel Tufnel: The sustain, listen to it.
Marty DiBergi: I don't hear anything.
Nigel Tufnel: Well you would though, if it were playing.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Derek Smalls: It's like fire and ice, basically. I feel my role in the band is to be somewhere in the middle of that, kind of like lukewarm water.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Marty DiBergi: Do you feel that playing rock 'n' roll music keeps you a child? That is, keeps you in a state of arrested development?
Derek Smalls: No. No. No. I feel it's like, it's more like going, going to a, a national park or something. And there's, you know, they preserve the moose. And that's, that's my childhood up there on stage. That moose, you know.
Marty DiBergi: So when you're playing you feel like a preserved moose on stage?
Derek Smalls: Yeah.

"David: ...well this is thoroughly depressing.

Nigel: It really puts perspective on things, though, doesn't it?

David: Too much, there's too much fucking perspective now..."

Couldn't leave this out:

"Derek: He was going to do a TV special from here, before he died.

David: Yeah, that's right, the musical version of "Somebody Up There Likes Me"... (Sings: ) Well since my baby left me, I found a new place to dwell, well, it's down at the end of Lonely Street, at Heartbreak Hotel.

Nigel: Do it, do it with the harmony parts.

D + N: Well since my baby left...

David: The same key, though, I think.

D + N: Well since my baby left me...

Nigel: If I'm going: Well since my baby left me, meeee...

David: No, you can't hit that note!

Derek, D+N: Mmmmm...since my baby left me,
well, I found a new place to dwell...

Nigel: That's alright.

Derek: Not really, not really...voice down...

David: Well it sounds raga, don't want to go raga on this stuff.

Nigel: No, not with this you don't, Well since my baby left me,

David: It sounds...fuckin barbershop...

Derek: Hey!

David: Barbershop raga. A new hybrid..."

the scene where they describe the album cover for, "smell the glove."

don't know it word for word (nor do i feel like looking it up somewhere...)

but how the dude confuses being called "sexist" with being sexy, regarding the album cover of featuring the tied up chick getting the glove to her face.

then whoever it is follows it up with something like, "well, in the original cover, it wasn't a glove, i can tell you that."

Yes, classic Nigel genius.

"They say the cover is sexist."
"What's wrong with being sexy?"

This is my favorite movie of all time.

How did we all forget about the scene where Nigel is dissatisfied with the bread!

"It's this, and I don't want this."

"Look who's in here, no one!"


For those who have the special edition DVD, my two favorite bits in that were:

Ferguson Jenkins
Slime Moles

Anyone who watched the deleted scenes (and I heard there are a LOT more deleted scenes out there on a bootleg VHS) knows what I'm talking about.

Fuck Lou, that sandwich part is hilarious. Used to go on and on about it with my friend in my band in high school... so fucking funny.

I haven't seen the DVD's deleted scenes yet. Looking forward to that, for sure.
