Favorite Characters, Favorite Lines: E is for Evil...Dr. Evil, That Is


Welcome to the A-to-Z Challenge, peeps!  Participating bloggers have cooked up some special treats for us this month. You won't want to miss out! Thanks to Arlee Bird for creating this challenge!

Don't forget to visit the list and you'll find some new pals. ... #AtoZChallenge  

My themes is Favorite Characters, Favorite Lines and I'm keeping it short and sweet with my daily offerings. Today is E for (Dr.) Evil!

This wacky quasi-scientist comes from the brain of Mike Myers (Wayne's World, SNL). Dr. Evil's only desire is to rule the world, kill Austin Powers and tolerate his new found son, Scott. Ever at his side: Mini-me. The deadpan, oblivious-to-the-current-state-of-the-world schtick just cracks me up. 

E is for Evil!


Dr. Evil: 
When I was 18 I went to evil medical school. At age 25 I took up tap 
dancing. I wanted to be a quadruple threat: an actor, dancer ...



"Our early attempts at a tractor beam went through several 
preparations. Preparations A through G were a complete failure. 
But now, ladies and gentlemen, we finally have a working tractor
 beam, which we  shall call... Preparation H. [Scott snickers] What?"



"Talk to the hand, 'cause the face don't wanna hear it anymore."

"Mini Me, if I ever lost you I don't know what I would do. [pauses] 
I'd probably move on and get another clone but there would be a 15 minute 
period there where I would just be inconsolable."

"There's nothing more pathetic than an aging hipster."

"Boo-frickity-hoo." 


Scott:
"Look, I was wondering if we could work all this out? 
You are, after all, my father."
Dr Evil:
"Scott, you had your chance, okay? I've already had someone created in
 my image. He's evil, he wants to take over the world, and he fits easily
 into most overhead storage bins."
Scott:
"Him? Look at him, he's crazy. He's like a vicious little Chihuahua
 thing. He'll kill me the first chance he gets."
Dr Evil: 
"Probably."


Dr. Evil: 
I like to see girls of that... caliber. 
[pause] 
By "caliber," of course, I refer to both the size of their gun barrels and the high quality of their characters... Two meanings... caliber... it's a homonym... Forget it. 


Dr. Evil: Quid pro-quo, Mr. Powers. 
Austin Powers: Yes, squid pro row. 


See you tomorrow with F!

  1. I I love Dr. Evil and his warped love for The Frau. These films are brilliant.

  2. Fitting into an overhead storage bin is a plus.
    I actually thought the cat was freakier.

  4. I'm beginning to notice a pattern. Cherdo has a thing for the villains. Well, maybe two isn't a pattern. Yet. But, I'm wondering what you have in mind for "F."

  9. Holding the entire world hostage for one million dollars. That's just plain MEAN! Why, helck, that's the entire cost of a 30-second television commercial during the Super Bowl!
