We’re pleased to announce a drawing to help us get geared up for this fall’s most anticipated comedy, Couples Retreat starring Vince Vaughn and friends.  To celebrate, our friends at Universal Pictures will provide a $25 Fandango gift certificate to a randomly chosen person who answers this question:

What’s Vince Vaughn’s Best Line?

It’s a hard decision, as Vince has a litany of excellent lines going all the way back to Swingers or perhaps beyond (Rudy, anyone?). Of course, here in Fratville we’re big fans of Vince’s lines from Frat Pack classics such as Old School (”Earmuffs!”), Anchorman (”Dorothy Mantooth is a Saint!”), and Wedding Crashers (”Might as well be a bullseye”). Of course, this is just for fun and not a judged test. So, come on, let your suggestions fly!

Couples Retreat looks to be an excellent return to form as we’ve already heard some zingers in the trailer for the film (”It’s time to get the guns and shoot some fish!”). The film was written by Vince with Jon Favreau and is directed by longtime associate (and first time director) Peter Billingsley.  The film also stars Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Faizon Love, Kristin Davis, Malin Akerman, Kristen Bell, Kali Hawk and Jean Reno. The film opens on October 9th.

All you need to do is comment below with your favorite Vince Vaughn line. Leave a comment below!

Winner will be chosen randomly from all entries by 11:59 pm PDT on October 8th. One entry per person (based on email address). You must be able to provide a mailing address if your name is picked.  There are no eligibility restrictions, however I believe Fandango only operates in the United States.

    - Vince Vaughn, Wedding Crashers

    Classic, but there is too many to choose from.

    “Rule # 6, do not sit in the corner and sulk, it draws attention to you in a negative way, draw attention to yourself, but on your own terms.” - Wedding Crashers

    “Blue was old, that is what old people do, they die.” - Old School

    “Please don’t touch my ruffles. Put that one back.” - The Break-Up

    “You’re adopted! Your parents don’t even love you!” - Dodgeball

    “I have a wife and kids. Do I seem like a happy guy to you, Frank?” - Old School

    Just some good ones that I like.

    Janice, I apologize to you if I don’t seem real eager to jump into a forced awkward intimate situation that people like to call dating. I don’t like the feeling. You’re sitting there, you’re wondering do I have food on my face, am I eating, am I talking too much, are they talking enough, am I interested I’m not really interested, should I play like I’m interested but I’m not that interested but I think she might be interested but do I want to be interested but now she’s not interested? So all of the sudden I’m getting, I’m starting to get interested… And when am I supposed to kiss her? Do I have to wait for the door cause then it’s awkward, it’s like well goodnight. Do you do like that ass-out hug? Where you like, you hug each other like this and your ass sticks out cause you’re trying not to get too close or do you just go right in and kiss them on the lips or don’t kiss them at all? It’s very difficult trying to read the situation. And all the while you’re just really wondering are we gonna get hopped up enough to make some bad decisions? Perhaps play a little game called “just the tip”. Just for a second, just to see how it feels. Or, ouch, ouch you’re on my hair.

    Vince definitely hit his stride in Wedding Crashers. 5 lines that slayed me:

    1. Yeah, it could have been the soft mattress. Or the midnight rape. Or the nude gay art show that took place in my room. One of those probably added to the lack of sleep.

    2. The painting was a gift, Todd. I’m taking it with me.

    3. Well, the proper girl in the hat just eye-fucked the shit out of me.

    4. I’m sorry. I’m not sorry. Okay? I’m not gonna apologize, I’m a cocksman!

    5. (I was the only one in the theater who laughed at this line, Neil Diamond reference)- I mean, I had an imaginary friend when I was kid, and his name was Shiloh! We used to play checkers with each other every day, and bless his heart, Shiloh would always let me win!

    Allright I need to go watch this movie now.

  8. Tom

    Anything from Made. For example:

    Salesperson: Excuse me sir, there’s no smoking in here.
    Ricky Slade: Why, you serving food?
    Salesperson: No, it’s store policy. And you can’t sit at a station without purchasing a ceramic.
    Ricky Slade: You believe this shit? I can’t sit at a station without purchasing a ceramic. Well, why don’t you bring me a ashtray then. Can I color me that, a ceramic ashtray?

  9. Tom

    Here’s 50 bucks, take this in case I get drunk and call you a bitch later.

  10. tara w

    “patience bud, can you try that ? The bip P word?…….patience..”

  11. Alyssa

    There’s a real big gap between getting your ass kicked and having a dancing, singing sprite fool you with trickery and then strike your throat before you even know you’re in a fight.
    Break Up

    All I do is stare at their mouths and wrinkle my nose, and I turn out to be a sweetheart.

    “Band of Brothers”… you should rent it sometime
    Break Up

  12. chris

    Swingers ‘You’re so money and you don’t even know it!’

  13. vanessa

    m just sayin’ if that’s what this is gonna be, it’s gonna be that.”. Be Cool

  14. Boz

    What are we dating?

  15. vanessa

    You and I both know I’m a phenomenal dancer

  16. Rob Carson

    Yeah, it’s the school marching band. I own (forget number) Circuit Cities and I am worth 3 million dollars that the government knows about, it’s not the fucking school marching band, just make sure you can see the stage when the band comes on. Old School.

    Lock it up! Wedding Crashers.

  17. amy

    “Your so money baby”

  18. amy

    Perfect JOE!!! I LOVE Vinnie there are so many where do we start !!!! My fave would have to be ,
    1. Yeah, it could have been the soft mattress. Or the midnight rape. Or the nude gay art show that took place in my room. One of those probably added to the lack of sleep.

  19. Nic

    “You guys had me a blood and semen”


  20. amy

    -Wow. Mr. Environmental is also a hunter. That’s got to be an interesting combination.

    -Not nearly as much as I do with the attire that you have on, or just your general point of view towards everybody. But let’s go kill some birds. I’m psyched.

    -I’m sure you’d love to be free, maybe go out and meet some Latin guy that can dance, grind up on you, make you feel dangerous but also safe. And how about you? Don’t you want to get inside Chastity without having to wonder if everyone’s gonna find out?

    -Cause she didn’t keep it, and I know you’re not raising the goddamn thing. I think it’s very obvious at this juncture that she just flat out does not wanna see you.

    -Why don’t you try getting jacked off under the table in front of the whole damn family and have some real problems, jackass. Hey, what were they like anyway? They looked pretty good, are they real? Are they built for speed or comfort? What’d you do with them? Motorboat? You play the motorboat?

    -You drop it! You stop projecting on me! Why don’t you go enjoy yourself while I go ice my balls and spit up blood

    -I got to get outta here, pronto. I got a stage five clinger. Stage five, virgin, clinger


  21. And let’s be honest
    with each other here, okay?
    Let’s put all the cards on the table.
    She’s fit for a straitjacket.
    This broad’s fucked
    three ways towards the weekend.
    And you wanna know what?
    I dig it! It turns me on!
    It turns me on!
    Because you wanna know
    what the kicker is, Father?
    Maybe I’m a little
    fucking crazy!
    That’s right!
    Maybe Jeremy’s a little nuts.
    Maybe there’s something about me
    that I’m a little cuckoo.

  22. Scott

    “I’m gonna make Wayne Gretzky’s head bleed… for super fan… number 99 over here.” SWINGERS

    “Mikey check it out his legs… little Wayne’s legs are shaking all over…” SWINGERS

  23. Heather

    I hope you flip your bike over and knock your two front teeth out, you selfish son of a bitch!~Wedding Crashers

  24. Amanda

    From Swingers: “I don’t want you to be the guy in the PG-13 movie that everybody is REALLY hoping makes it happen. I want you to be the guy in the rated R movie. The guy you’re not really sure you like yet. You’re a bad man, you’re a bad man.”

  25. EV

    “Did you just let SCREECH in the fucking club?”

  26. You’re gonna get hooked on that thing. I can see it now. Sixteen thousand bags of Cheetos later, you’ll wake up, you’re thirty-five, you’re overweight, you’re crying about your life in front of the soaps. I just did you a favor. You get outside, play around, make some friends, play kick the can, do some athletic stuff, go to school, you’re comfortable enough to play sports, you get a partial scholarship, you got any ethnic in your background, any ethnicity in your background? I bet you do. It’s America, you know what I mean? Find out what it is and put that down on the application for college. Now all the sudden you get a little extra money on the side, Uncle Sam’s none the wiser for it. You take that extra money, you buy a motorcycle with it or something. Be a lady. Maybe meet a guy while you’re at school. And then you’ll get pregnant with child, it works out with the guy, it doesn’t work out with the guy, who cares? You’re blessed to have that kid in your life. You’re going to be athletic, you’re going to be a moderate to lukewarm student, and you’re gonna have a child before you graduate college. And who are you going to have to thank for all that? Not the big guy in the red suit, but your pal Fred.

  27. “You’re so money and you don’t even know it!” - Swingers, 1996

    that’s right people! you’re money! hahah

    sure there’s an awfull lot to choose from, but hell, that’s ’cause he’s so money!

  28. Mario

    Any variation of “money” is probably what penetrated pop culture like nothing else.

    But one of my favorites from Old School, towards the end when Pompeo comes over with a CD rack for Luke, is when he goes:

    “Yeah, that thing is a piece of crap.” (Off Luke’s look) “We stopped selling them six months ago. Lot of complaints.”

    “Lot of complaints” is what puts it over the top, but there are just too many to choose from.

  29. A classic one from Old School:

    “Do I seem like a Happy guy to you Frank? I have a wife, kids,’hi honey,’ always watching, judging, look at the baby look at the baby.”

  30. Julie

    Vince Vaughn is so funny he could say anything and it would be hysterical. Some of his best lines… “Our babys all grown up”~ Swingers and “i dont know what im feeling today”~ Made.
    ~VV is a comedy icon!

  31. Paul

    I’m telling you baby you always double down on 11. … Ladies, don’t you always double down on 11?

  32. Mac

    The proper girl in the hat just eye-f****d the shit out of me.
