The 20 Best Ever “The Castle” Quotes

The 20 Best Ever “The Castle” Quotes

Posted by Olli Octopus on 0 comments

From iconic films comes iconic quotes. And no film has produced more iconic quotes than The Castle. But there’s no point letting iconic quotes languish away in the cupboard. They need to be released into the public domain as often as possible. Not only have we resurrected the quotes but we’ve suggested how they can be used to your best advantage. And if your family and friends start to complain, tell them, “Suffer in your jocks.” 

  1. “Tell him he’s dreamin.”
    It’s what you say to the missus when your wife says your P-plate driving son wants to borrow your new car.

  2. “This is going straight to the pool room.”
    This is the response you give to any Father’s Day gift. Especially when the kids are little and the gifts are so precious, like handmade soap or a bracelet.

  3. “It’s not a house. It’s a home.”
    This you exclaim when you're fishing for compliments, having cut the grass or cleaned the house and are justifiably proud of the job you’ve done.

  4. “Suffer in your jocks.”
    You scream this out with arms raised above your head after thrashing the family in a game of monopoly. Stuff being a gracious winner.

  5. “How’s the serenity? So much serenity.”
    It’s the perfect phrase to use when your teenage kids are out for the evening and it’s just you, your loved one and the T.V.

  6. “We're going to Bonnie Doon. We’re going to Bonnie Doon.”
    Sing this when you’re heading to Bunnings. But insert Bunnings for Bonnie Doon. The only noise louder will be the groan from your kids in the back seat.

  7. “It’s the culture, Darryl. The place is full of culture.”
    A ripper quote for the museum or art gallery. Particularly when no one else wants to be there.

  8. “Dale dug a hole.”
    Try this one on your husband when he’s planting trees for you in the garden. Then follow up very quickly with, “and would you like a beer love?”

  9. “Dad, he reckons powerlines are a reminder of man’s ability to generate electricity.”
    Hey kids, roll this out any time Dad states the bleeding obvious.

  10. “Dad reckons fishing is 10% brains and 95% muscle, the rest is just good luck.”
    Best used when someone tries to baffle you with facts, figures or logic.

  11. “It’s the constitution. It’s Mabo. It’s justice. It’s law. It’s the vibe.”
    A ripper for when you’re putting your foot down, like when your teenage daughter wants her curfew extended.

  12.  “Steves an ideas man. That’s why Dad calls him the ideas man.”
    Use this on your siblings anytime they come up with a suggestion. Then duck.

  13. “Dad still can’t work out how he got it so cheap. It’s worth almost as much today as when he bought it.”
    Roll this out anytime anyone is bragging about a bargain.

  14. “Tell em to get stuffed.”
    The standard response for when a phone rings at the dinner table.

  15.  “And what Law are you basing this argument on? The Law of bloody common sense!”
    This won’t have any impact at all when trotted out during an argument with your spouse. But give it a try anyway. It may break the tension.

  16. “What do you call this?” “Chicken.”
    Perfect for any time you have takeaway.

  17. “Kicking a goal.”
    Spot on for that moment of self congratulation. You know, when nobody else notices what an awesome job you’ve done.

  18. “We could just chat for hours.”
    Do not use this when the Seventh Day Adventists knock on your door.

  19. “My name is Dale Kerrigan, and this is my story.”
    Best used to precede a big announcement.

  20. “It’s not a house it’s a home, a man’s home is his castle.”
    To be delivered every time you turn into your driveway. You could take a bet on who will get sick of it first. 

At Yellow Octopus were every bit as Aussie as The Castle. And just like the film, we deliver. And on time, every time. So do yourself a favour and find the perfect online gift for family or friends that’ll go, “Straight to the pool room.”
