We Should All Still Be Quoting These Gene Hackman Lines From ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’

Many people spent Thursday morning trying to figure out if the unintentional Gene Hackman death rumors were true, and we were happy to report that they weren’t. Sheesh, that would’ve been rather sad, seeing as how the screen legend turns 85 today. So let’s reverse course and instead celebrate one of his final acting triumphs on his birthday…

“I’m very sorry for your loss. Your mother was a terribly attractive woman.”

“Why are you wearing pajamas, do you live here?”

“Hell of a damn grave. Wish it were mine.”

“That’s the last time you put a knife in me, you hear me?”

“Anybody interested in grabbing a couple burgers and hitting the cemetery?

“You heard me, Coltrane.”

“Can’t someone be a sh*t their whole life and try to repair the damage?”

“I’ve always been considered an asshole for as long as I remember.”

“Let’s shag ass.”
