Dumb And Dumber (New Line Cinema)

News about the Farrelly brothers' upcoming Dumb and Dumber sequel, Dumb and Dumber To, is coming thick and fast.

But while it sounds pretty great and Jeff Daniels has promised that the follow-up will make the previous films "pale in comparison", we've got a lot of love for the 1994 original.

Ostensibly a lowbrow road trip movie, the good-hearted yet intellectually-challenged Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne became comedy heroes to a generation of fans courtesy of their asinine, uncouth antics.

While the entire film is a quotable goldmine, here are our top 10:

Lloyd: I got robbed by a sweet old lady on a motorised cart. I didn't even see it coming.
Harry: Oh, no, no.

Harry: It gets worse. My parakeet, Petey.
Lloyd: Yeah?
Harry: He's dead.

Blind kid Billy
Harry: Where did you get those?
Lloyd: I bought them when we filled up.

Lloyd: This didn't come out of our travel fund.
Harry: Oh.
Lloyd: Yeah, I was able to raise 25 extra bucks before we left.

Harry: Petey? You sold my dead bird to a blind kid? Lloyd! Petey didn't even have a head!

Harry: Just when I thought you couldn’t possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this… and totally redeem yourself!

Romantic Lloyd
Lloyd: The first time I set eyes on Mary Swanson, I just got that old fashioned romantic feeling where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling, Lloyd.

The love motel
Harry: I don't know, Lloyd. These places always seem to bring back a lot of bad memories.
Lloyd: What's the matter, Har? Some little filly break your heart?
Harry: No, it was a girl.

The bet
Lloyd: I'll bet you twenty bucks I can get you gambling before the end of the day!
Harry: No way!
Lloyd: I'll give you three to one odds.

Harry: Nuh uh!
Lloyd: I don't know how, but I'm gonna get ya.

Bikini bus
Bikini Girl: Hi guys. We're going on a national bikini tour, and we're looking for two oil boys who can grease us off before each competition.
Harry: You are in luck! There's a town about three miles that way. I'm sure you'll find a couple guys there.
Bikini Girl: [baffled] Okay, thanks.
Lloyd: Do you realise what you've done? HEY! HEY!
Harry: Lloyd! Lloyd!
Lloyd: You'll have to excuse my friend. He's a little slow. The town is back that way.

Bus stop faux pas
Lloyd: That's a lovely accent you have. New Jersey?
Lady at bus stop: Austria.
Lloyd: Austria! Well, then. G'day mate! Let's put another shrimp on the barbie!
Lady at bus stop: Let's not.

Lloyd's date
Harry: I don't get it, Lloyd. She told me ten o' clock, sharp! Are you sure you went to the right bar?
Lloyd: Yep. I'm pretty sure. Lobby bar right by the lobby... Maybe she just had a change of heart.
Harry: Oh, that pisses me off! That pisses me right off! I hate when women do that. She wanted to see you again! And now no? Now... Wait a minute! Wait! She must have meant ten o' clock at night!
Lloyd: Do you think...?
Harry: Why would she have you meet her in a bar at ten in the morning?
Lloyd: I just figured she was a raging alcoholic.

Harry: ing.
Lloyd: Yeah!
Harry: bird.
