Bill Maher Imagines Other Botched Movie Quotes Joe Biden Could Use to Insult People

Like a lot of comedians this week, Bill Maher was greatly amused this week by the bizarre insult Joe Biden aimed at a New Hampshire voter ahead of that state’s primary. So he came up with a few more for Biden to use inspired not just by the insult, but by Biden’s mistaken explanation for it.

On Sunday during an appearance in New Hampshire, a woman in the audience asked Joe Biden about his poor showing in the Iowa caucus fiasco. Biden asked the woman if she had ever attended a caucus and when she said she had, he responded “No you haven’t! You’re a lying, dog-faced pony soldier.”

After what seemed like half the country reacted with a collective “wait, what?” the Biden campaign team explained that the insult was actually a quote from an old John Wayne movie. However, the campaign didn’t specify which movie and no one else was able to identify it either, but with good reason: As it turns out: The line is actually a quote from a Tyrone Powers movie.

So it is that at the mid-point of Friday’s episode of “Real Time,” after playing a clip of the moment, Maher said that Biden “is often quoting movie lines that don’t really exist.” And then he provided some examples. See them below (with pictures):

“Life is like a box of ex-lax,” a reference to Forrest Gump.

“Luke, I am your Daddy-O,” a reference to “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.”

“I love the smell of Ben-Gay in the morning,” a reference to “Apocalypse Now.”

“The first rule of hair club is you do not talk about hair club,” a reference both to Biden’s hair line and to “Fight Club.”

“Keep your friends close and your enemas closer,” a reference to “The Godfather.”

“You talking to me? Well speak up, why are you whispering?” a reference to “Taxi Driver.”

“I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna shop at this Walgreens anymore,” a reference to “Network.”

And finally, “I feel the need, the need to pee,” a reference to “Top Gun.”
