Episode 14: Highlander

We welcome Doug McCoy to the podcast. Doug is a podcasting veteran, hosting shows such as 80s Anthologies, In the Theater, Crazy Creepy Cool Movies, The Pastor and the Pappy, and Never Seen It. In the spirit of Never Seen It, we decided to review a film that at least one of us had not seen – Highlander. In addition to our review of this classic movie, Robert has a concert review of Asia and Journey, a new Play This, Not That, and an all new Remember That Song and 80s Trivia.

Quote of the Day: Highlander

Connor MacLeod: I don’t like boats, I don’t like water. I’m a man, not a fish.

Ramirez: So you complain endlessly.

Connor MacLeod: You look like a woman you stupid haggis.

Ramirez: Haggis? What is haggis?

Connor MacLeod: Sheep’s stomach stuffed with meat and barley

Ramirez: And what do you do with it?

Connor MacLeod: You eat it!

Ramirez: How revolting!

[Ramirez sneezes]

Connor MacLeod: Be still for God’s sake! You’ll tip us over.

Ramirez: So?

Connor MacLeod: I cannot swim you Spanish peacock.

Ramirez: I’m not Spanish, I’m Egyptian.

Connor MacLeod: You said you were from Spain! You’re a liar!

Ramirez: You have the manners of a goat and you smell like a dung-heap. And you’ve no knowledge whatsoever of your potential. Now, get out!

[Throws MacLeod into the lake]
