I can't believe I stumped you but, to be fair, I thought long and hard for a line...so it is hardly iconic.
I can see the VHS cover in my mind's eye, but I never rented it. It was in the store I worked in at the time!

You should see it. "When you go to the store, please buy a new skillet. I feel squeamish using the one we kill people with." With lines like that, how can you resist???

How the heck did I ever miss that one? Sounds right up my alley!

Did you ever see: Out Cold (1989) - IMDb ? John Lithgow spends most of the movie frozen with a fudgsicle stuck to his head. Hysterical!

I always wondered who decides which category to put the VHS in -- way back when we lived in LA for a short time - the rental store there had "Throw Momma from the Train" in the exercise section.

Oh my! In my store I decided, I was the video manager at the time. When something was mis-categorized, either by my catching it or a customer catching it, I would switch it. Those were fun times, I loved working in the video store.
