Quote of the Day: The Blues Brothers

[while standing at the entrance to the Triple Rock church watching the service with much dancing and Hallelujah choruses, a heavenly light shines down on Jake and he has an epiphany]

Jake: The band? The band.

Reverend Cleophus James: DO YOU SEE THE LIGHT?

Jake: THE BAND!

Reverend Cleophus James: DO YOU SEE THE LIGHT?

Elwood: What light?

Reverend Cleophus James: HAVE YOU SEEEEN THE LIGHT?

Jake: YES! YES! JESUS H. TAP-DANCING CHRIST… I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT!

Quote of the Day: The Blues Brothers

Mrs. Murphy: Don’t you “Don’t get riled, sugar” me! You ain’t goin’ back on the road no more, and you ain’t playin’ them ol’ two-bit sleazy dives. You’re livin’ with me now, and you not gonna go slidin’ around witcho ol’ white hoodlum friends.

Matt Murphy: But babes, this is Jake and Elwood, the Blues Brothers.

Mrs. Murphy: The Blues Brothers? Shit! They still owe you money, fool.

Jake: Ma’am, would it make you feel any better if you knew that what we’re asking Matt here to do is a holy thing?

Elwood: You see, we’re on a mission from God.

Mrs. Murphy: Don’t you blaspheme in here! Don’t you blaspheme in here! This is my man, this is my restaurant, and you two are just gonna walk right out that door without your dry white toast, without your four fried chickens, and without Matt ‘Guitar’ Murphy!

Quote of the Day: The Blues Brothers

Jake: What’s this?

Elwood: What?

Jake: This car. This stupid car! Where’s the Cadillac?

[Elwood doesn’t answer]

Jake: The Caddy! Where’s the Caddy?

Elwood: The what?

Jake: The Cadillac we used to have. The Bluesmobile!

Elwood: I traded it.

Jake: You traded the Bluesmobile for this?

Elwood: No, for a microphone.

Jake: A microphone?

[pause]

Jake: Okay I can see that. What the hell is this?

Elwood: This was a bargain. I picked it up at the Mount Prospect city police auction last spring. It’s an old Mount Prospect police car. They were practically giving ’em away.

Jake: Well thank you, pal. The day I get outta prison, my own brother picks me up in a *police* car!

Jake: [to Sister Mary Stigmata] Five grand? No problem, we’ll have it for you in the morning. Let’s go, Elwood.

Sister Mary Stigmata: No, no! I will not take your filthy stolen money!

Jake: Well then… I guess you’re really up Shit Creek.

[Sister Mary Stigmata hits Jake Blues with a ruler for using that kind of language]

Sister Mary Stigmata: I beg your pardon, what did you say?

Jake: I offered to help you… You refused to take our money. Then I said: I guess you’re really up Shit Creek!

[Sister Mary Stigmata hits Jake Blues with the ruler again]

Elwood: Christ, Jake. Take it easy man.

[Sister Mary Stigmata hits Elwood Blues]

Jake: Oh shit!

[Sister Mary Stigmata hits Jake Blues]
