Updated October 13, 2018 130 votes 36 voters 20.6k views8 items

'The Three Stooges' movie quotes feature some of the most memorable lines from this long-awaited comedy film directed by the Farrelly brothers. In 'The Three Stooges,' Moe Howard (Chris Diamantopoulos), Larry Fine ( Sean Hayes) and Curly Howard (Will Sasso) attempt to stumble and bumble their way into saving the orphanage where they grew up. Not surprisingly, this movie is filled with funny quotes, so be sure to vote up your favorites (and vote down those knucklehead lines you just can't stand). Have a favorite 'Three Stooges' movie quote that isn't listed? Add it!

Peter and Bobby Farrelly first began developing their 'Three Stooges' movie project a decade ago. After much work, and a lot of casting rumors (everyone from Jim Carrey to Sean Penn was supposedly attached to the film at one point), 'The Three Stooges' is finally hitting theaters. This is not a biopic: 'The Three Stooges' film is much like the old TV episodes, following the (mis)adventures of Larry, Curly and Moe as they try to save their old orphanage and somehow wind up smack in the middle of a murder plot (and as stars of a reality TV show).

'The Three Stooges' features an all-star cast, including Sofia Vergara, Jane Lynch, Jennifer Hudson, Kate Upton and Larry David and several other celebrity cameos (yes, including the stars of 'The Jersey Shore').

    Larry: "A fire hose! We can lower ourselves down to the ground!"
    Moe: "Okay try it -- it's foolproof!" (Trio jumps from the building with firehoses attached, but they break)

    Larry always has some big ideas, totally infallible ones too. Including this one, which involves a roof, a fire hose and, eventually, pain.

    Larry: "What's it gonna take to save this place?"
    Priest: "A lot of of this..." (rubs fingers together, indicating money)
    Larry: "How many boogers are we talking about?"

    In 'The Three Stooges,' Moe, Curly and Larry are working to try and save the orphanage where they grew up. It's gonna take a lot of boogers cash to make that happen...

    Dot the I's

    Moe: "Mind your P's and Q's."
    Curly: "Don't forget to dot the I's!"
    Moe: "Certainly." (Pokes Curly in the eyes)

    No 'Three Stooges' movie would be complete without multiple eye pokes from Moe. Curly is without question his favorite target of choice, but no one is ever truly safe.

    Moe: "He's got a headache."
    Larry: "No I don't."
    Moe: (Hits Larry in the head with a hammer) "How about now?"
    Larry: "Yeah, it's coming on."

    This is classic 'Three Stooges' physical comedy at it's best, with Moe inflicting pain (this time in the form of a hammer to the noggin).
