Manic Monday - Gravy

This week’s Manic Monday word is gravy. Oh, I was sooooo drawing a blank on this one. This weekend, I was working on my Thanksgiving menu, but I never include gravy because my gravy sucks! Seriously. My mom used to make gravy that made me want to drink it out of the bowl with a straw. Unfortunately, I did not inherit that talent.

Therefore, I went to IMDB, and decided to list a few TV and movie quotes about gravy. I was actually surprised there were so many. Here are some good ones!

Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988)
Mike Nelson: “Get the holy drippings and make the sacred gravy.”

101 Dalmations: (1997)
Lucky: “Can’t we watch something besides the gravy channel?”

M.A.S.H. (1972)
Hawkeye: “The gravy was better than usual tonight . . . you could cut it with a fork.”

The Simpsons
Dr. Hibbert: “Well, your cholesterol level is lethally high, Homer, but I’m more concerned about your gravy level.”

The Simpsons
Homer Simpson: “Now, wait a second. You doctors have been telling us to drink eight glasses of gravy a day!”

Whose Line Is It Anyway? (1998)
Kathy Kinney: “I’m Gravy Spice!”

A Christmas Story (1983)
Ralphie as adult (narrating): “The heavenly aroma still hung in the house. But it was gone, all gone! No turkey! No turkey sandwiches! No turkey salad! No turkey gravy! Turkey Hash! Turkey a la King! Or gallons of turkey soup! Gone, ALL GONE!”

Ghost Rider (2007)

Mack: “We were on the gravy train with biscuit wheels before you showed up.”

Head (1968)
Davy Jones: “And, uh, I’d like a glass of cold gravy with a hair in it, please.”

Kingpin (1996)
Ernie McCracken: “You’re on a gravy train with biscuit wheels.”

Kissin’ Cousins (1964)
Ma Tatum: “Aw shucks, it ain’t nothing but possum tails, owl gizzards, and grits fried in bear grease. And then that there gravy, that’s just goat’s milk with vulture eggs and mashed catfish eyes.”

Love and Death (1975)
Boris (after being grazed by bullet): “Does this come out, from dry cleaning, or is it like gravy?”

Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941)
Waitress: “You’re as funny as a cry for help! You also pulled that old gag about breaking your fork in the gravy!”
