Like is the New Say, or How I Learned to Love The Quotative Like

And I'm like, "Uh, OK, let's go to the boat!" [laughing] But I did not have an idea of what the boat was so he sent the address of where the boat was parked -- you know it's parked, in like a dock, somewhere in Brooklyn.
And I asked, "OK, how big is the boat?" [laughing]

Brody: You're gonna need a bigger boat.

I did it to impress her in the beginning. Now, she’s like, "Where’s my new song?"

I’ve listened to my CD and I’m like ‘Oh, that’s kind of cool.’ And then I go ‘Oh yeah that’s me!

"She’s like, put some soothing music on," Molly said of Donna, who likes to listen to slower-paced tunes as she works.

He took his green, sharp pointy Warlock bass off, winged it around like Peter Townsend and then it hit me that he was actually gonna throw it at me and I'm like, "Man, I'm gonna die."

"It's gotten so popular back home where I live and it's just like everybody, 'Oh, I'm a cage fighter. I'm a cage fighter.'"

She was called Karate Grandma. I admired her. And she was badder than me! And I'm like, "Oh, I gotta be just as bad!"

"It's funny, because I look at my son and he's going through these various phases and I'm like, 'Oh, yeah, I remember those feelings of frustration and wanting to bite!'"

I would be like "vampires... in Alaska!" And they'd be like (shakes his head) "Mmm-mm." I don't know, nobody got it.

I'm looking at those vampires, and I'm like 'How can that be practical make-up?'

People would make jokes about it, even before we'd go into a raid, like, Oh fucking we're gonna get the wrong house. Cause it would always happen. We always got the wrong house.
- Sgt. Jesus Bocanegra, 25, Fourth Infantry Division (Tikrit)

When her sister shows her photos supposedly of ghosts, Sarah is very skeptical. "They say, Oh, look at this picture!' And I'm like, That's the light reflection,'" she said.

"And you wait so long to win. Every driver out here can tell you how special it is. I started crying, and I'm like, 'Why are you crying?' Because I was so happy. Celebrating.''

There were some images in the room; I kept looking at one and I'm like, you know, if I make it real and edgy, it might be something really interesting.

I don't say a word about my views and these people find me and relate with this music. They just come up to me and I know them. I'm like "Sorry."
A lot of them people are just stuck in their pews, if you know what I mean. They haven't felt a thing for years, and that's, it's almost like a game for me. I'm like "Oh yeah? Here we go. I'm going to make you feel something whether you like it or not."
I drive everyone nuts because I can't stay in one place two seconds, and they're like "Hey Sarah, we have to promote this album" and I'm like "I know," but you have to understand, we were done with this album like six, seven months ago.

"I had shiny blue DM's and I gave them to Oxfam. Obviously they aren't so me at the moment," she says pointing at her retro bright blue high-waisted swing skirt, "and then I was reading Grazia and they said wear DM's... and I'm like 'give me my boots back Oxfam!'

"I was looking at the Web site that shows all the teams, and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, there’s a team in Niagara!’ "

I figured if it was good enough for Steve Buscemi, it was good enough for me. So I actually agreed to it, and they were like "Surely, you should read the script or at least talk to Steven," and I said, "No, I'm doing it." My agent was like, "Why are you hanging out with these people?" and then he watched it and went, "Got it." I'll do interviews and they're like, "Oh, you're actually quite nice" and I'm like, "Yes! I didn't create that."

There were multiple problems, and I'm like, whoa! Where's the pop here? The faux? The high end window treatments?

My agents called me and were like, "You're going to have to play a pop star, but it's a pretty good script," and [at first I was] like, "No, I don't even want to read it."

Then all of a sudden I’m supposedly a comedian and I’m like, "I am?" Who knew?

And one kid was like ‘Oh, so and so has a great story. Wait ‘til you hear this story, it’s so great.’ And then he tells this story and I’m like, ‘Wow, that? That’s a big story for you guys? That’s nothing, let me tell you a story.’
And then I told them my story and their jaws were on the floor because they were like oh my god, I can’t believe you did all that. It’s hard for me to relate to college kids.

"He's like 'so you're from Minnesota,' and I'm like 'yeah,' and he says, 'Minnesooota,' tries to draw it out. Then he says, 'Man, that Fargo is a crazy movie,' and I'm like, 'Well, that's not in Minnesota.' I keep kind of correcting him. It's pretty good."

"I look over and I'm like, 'Gosh, I've got Ken Griffey Jr. out there and he's going to make this play,'" Hamels said. "He did, and he saved my butt."

"I turned to all my roommates, and I'm like 'okay my mom just asked me if she could join Facebook' and they, you know, we all like gave each other a groan," Carol said.

By the time the cops and our boyfriends got there, we were just completely hammered, and we're like, "We're fine! We're fine!"

Girls will sometimes come up and do something gross and I'm like, 'Uurrghh!' Girls shouldn't do that sort of thing. They should leave that stuff to guys."

By calling them names, they're not people anymore. They're just objects ... They were very mean, very mean-spirited to them. A lot of cursing at them. And I'm like, Dude, these people don't understand what you're saying.... They used to say a lot, 'Oh, they'll understand when the gun is in their face.'
- Spc. Michael Harmon, 24, 167th Armor Regiment, Fourth Infantry Division (Al-Rashidiya)

It might sound crazy, but she was like asking me why. You know, Why do I have a bullet in my leg?... I was just like, This is--this is it. This is ridiculous.
- Spc. Michael Harmon, 24, 167th Armor Regiment, Fourth Infantry Division (Al-Rashidiya)

"When you're Indian, and especially my mother's generation, who spent all their time in the kitchen, the last thing they want is their liberal children to do the same - it's like, go out and get a real job. Become a doctor or something."

They say things like Kashmiri chicken with bananas, and I'm like, 'I'm sorry - that doesn't exist in India.'

She’s like ‘This will give me something to live for.’ If there’s anything that will keep her going, I’m all for it.

"She’s like, ‘Honey, you might go. You never know.’ I’m like, ‘Go look at the stat page. Be honest with yourself,’" he said.

They go like, ‘It’s a romantic comedy’ which is like it’s such an amazing -- like the dates that Nora goes on and how they’re portrayed and the detail of that. I think to have like -- you know they’re at the movie theater and they see an old movie and they talk and how the confrontations happen between people.

And it was like I'm looking at all these kids, these black people, and this truck is shooting this water out and I'm like, it just reminded me of seeing images of people getting hosed and falling down and running and fear. So, yeah, all that was in the back of my head. All that was like underneath.

"I was gaining a little bit of weight," she said. "I was like, 'My God!'"
She turned to the ultrasound technician and said, "That's not one baby," McDonald said. "And I'm thinking twins. And I'm like, 'Oh my God! Twins!'
"And she's like, 'No, that's three babies.' And I was like, 'Oh! ... My! ... God!!'"
"I was more like, 'Are you ---- me?!'" McDevitt said, trading a pause for more colorful language.

Does that make sense? Megatron was a gun, and I'm like, "I don't get that," and I did get a lot of flack from fans on the net, like, "Michael Bay, you wrecked my childhood. Michael Bay, you suck."

It freaks studios out because they're like, "That wasn't in the script, what's this, he's wrecking the movie." And I'm like, "Trust me, it's going to be funny," because there's a whole issue of tone in this movie.
