Get Him To The Greek Quotes

Friday, July 29 by Rooster Cogburn

Any movie starring actors Russell Brand and Jonah Hill is bound to be filled with its fair share of off-the-wall moments and these "Get Him to the Greek" quotes show that their 2010 comedy does not disappoint. Brand plays a recurring character, rocker Aldous Snow (also seen in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall"), while Hill plays Aaron Green, a down-on-his-luck cub talent scout for a failing agency in Los Angeles. Green is given three days to transport Snow from London to Los Angeles and needless to say, their travels do not unfold in a linear fashion. Five of the more memorable "Get Him to the Greek" movie quotes:

  1. "Don't be a bitch, dude. Let me get my smoke on." Green sacrifices himself for the sake of his job, grabbing grabs Snow's liquor bottle and joint in a desperate bid to kee the rocker from getting drunk and high before his performance. When Snow protests, Green sets him back in his place with this classic "Get Him To The Greek" movie quote. 
  2. "I've got six f*ckin' kids! Do you know how many Air Jordans six black kids wear?" Sergio Roma, Aaron Green's boss, is the head of the failing talent agency. In a brainstorming meeting with his staff, Roma gets only bad ideas and this "Get Him To The Greek" movie quote is his way of telling his team what the stakes are.
  3. "Are yo Paul Krugman? My dad loves your shit." In the green room of the "Today" show where Snow is scheduled to perform, Green runs into the economist and New York Times columnist. This "Get Him To The Greek" movie quote is Green's attempt at high praise.
  4. "Oh, it's a bit of this, a bit of that. It's called a Jeffrey. It's mostly weed, with a bit of opium as well… ground-up E's… heroin… Clorox…" Green, stressed out after a wild encounter with a prostitute, comes to Snow and one of his friends for help. Rather than give him sympathy, they give him a Jeffrey, which they describe as the "Neapolitan of Drugs." This "Get Him To The Greek" movie quote is in response to Green's question about what was in the Jeffrey.
  5. "When the world slips you a Jeffrey, stroke the furry wall." Snow helps Green come down from the high of the Jeffrey in a unique fashion as he describes it in this "Get Him To The Greek" movie quote, by gently rubbing the furry wall.
