This Is Spinal Tap Movie Quotes

Buzz Lines: What's Your Favorite Quote From This Is Spinal Tap?

The biggest names in the music industry gathered at the VMAs on Sunday, and between cross-dressing and baby-bump baring, the performing artists proved they know how to put on a show. It got me thinking about the faux rock stars of This Is Spinal Tap and their hilarious antics and performances throughout the mockumentary. So for this week's movie-quoting challenge, I'm asking you to share some of your favorite lines from the cult film!

  • "Put it up to 11." — Marty DiBergi
  • "The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin.'" — Spinal Tap
  • "None more black." — Nigel Tufnel

My two favorite quotes hands-down are from Nigel, presented here, completely out of context: "Well, I don't know, what're the hours?" "Anyway this is what I sleep in sometimes." Ha! Gets me every time!

David St. Hubbins: I do not, for one, think that the problem was that the band was down. I think that the problem *may* have been, that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being *crushed* by a *dwarf*. Alright? That tended to understate the hugeness of the object. Ian Faith: I really think you're just making much too big a thing out of it. Derek Smalls: Making a big thing out of it would have been a good idea. Nigel Tufnel: It's part of a trilogy, a musical trilogy I'm working on in D minor which is the saddest of all keys, I find. People weep instantly when they hear it, and I don't know why. And of course: Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder? Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.

first of all this is my favorite comedy of all time so every line is gold but here are some more funny ones. "the police said best left...unsolved really" "dozens of people spontaneously com-bust every year it's just not widely reported" "He was the patron saint of quality footwear." "You know, just simple lines intertwining, you know, very much like - I'm really influenced by Mozart and Bach, and it's sort of in between those, really. It's like a Mach piece, really. It's sort of... what is this piece called Like my love pump"
