For all of us golfing fans out there Caddyshack is probably a staple of your DVD collection – imagine this goes for a sizeable percentage of the non-golfers too! For those of you not in the know, it’s a seminal comedy flick from the 80’s back when Chevy Chase and Bill Murray were in their absolute prime.

We’re going to give you a rundown of some of the best quotes from Caddyshack and explain to you how you can shoehorn in every single one into your everyday life while absolutely wrecking the heads of anyone close to you.

“Well… we’re waiting.”

We all know the pain of someone taking their sweet time to get around to doing something, so this is the perfect way to remind them to get their posterior into gear. Also works well at boring business meetings where colleagues dance around the point they’re actually trying to make.

“You’ll get nothing and like it.”

Best said to your own kids, or anyone else’s kids that you may happen to be babysitting, when they complain about your Communist Russia style of care that you adopt. Dinner WITHOUT dessert? You absolute monster.

“You buy a hat like this, I bet you get a free bowl of soup.”

Everyone’s friendship group is full of fashion faux pas, especially in the golfing world. It’s always best to play it safe with Nike golf clothing to ensure you’re out of the crosshairs yourself. Be sure to absolutely tear into any friends who try to push the boat out when it comes to what they wear, after all, it’s you who has to be seen with them!

“Don’t sell yourself short, you’re a tremendous slouch.”

A good fall-back compliment whenever your friends are beating themselves up and you literally cannot think of anything else to lift their spirits. Accompany it with a jovial pat on the back, possibly correcting their posture.

“The world needs ditch diggers too.”

I’m sure we all know someone fresh out of university who’s feeling a bit glum about their total lack of prospects, well this is the perfect comment to use in that instance. They might not feel better, but at least you’ll feel smug in yourself at reeling off the perfect comeback.

“Two wrongs don’t make a right, but three rights make a left.”

If you like to present yourself with an air of profound wisdom then look no further than this beauty. It’s also technically correct, which as we all know, is the best kind of correct.

“Thank you very little.”

Ever been stuck on the phone with a call centre for hours and hours, only to receive no tangible solution to the problem you originally called up for when the conversation eventually ends? Please see above.

“A flute with no holes is not a flute. A donut with no hole is a Danish.”

Another philosophical wonder, reel this one off when anyone tells you they don’t feel like they’re achieving what they were put on this earth to do. You’ll achieve nothing but confusing them further, but at least they’ll probably be too polite to call you up on that fact.

“You’re rather attractive for a beautiful girl with a great body.”

If you’ve ever wanted to combine film quotes with chat up lines then this one should suffice. Don’t expect much of a success ratio, though.

“So, I got that going for me… which is nice.”

When your life is absolutely doing you no favours, nothing seems to be going your way and the world seems to be totally against you – some days you find a fiver in your inside jacket pocket. So at least you’ve got that going for you, which is nice.
