There are many great quotes from the British crime drama, The Boondock Saints, and there’s no better way to celebrate the series’ 25th anniversary than with a drink on its birthday. These quotes are not only funny, but also incredibly meaningful. Take a look at these popular quotes from the movie to get a better idea of the kind of humor that’s on display.
The first line in the movie is the best, and it’s often quoted verbatim. Greenly, the bartender of the Saints, is often portrayed as a tree-hugging character who makes everyone feel at home. He makes everyone feel welcome by using phrases like “peach and cake,” and “denial and error.” And, of course, the line “make like a tree and leave” is just as appropriate.
The title line is another classic. The phrase “make like a tree” is a pun on “leaving.” A deciduous tree sheds its leaves and sheds them, so it makes sense. But why say “make like a nut” when you can use “make like a tree”? You’d be misinterpreted if you were aiming for an apple, not a nut.
The second line is the same but in reverse. This time, the man pointing out the door said, “Make like a tree, and leave.” It was a funny bit, and I’m not sure if it was meant to be a pun or a mistranslation. The line is more about the actor’s ability to mimic other people’s actions, but it’s still funny, so I suggest you try it out.
Throughout the movie, a quip about the word tree is used frequently. For instance, a man attempting to order a beer will tell his waitress to make him a tree-shaped drink. But that’s not a proper phrase. The correct one is “make like a forest.” This phrase is a pun on the word leaf. The speaker will point out the door, and the audience will laugh too.”
It’s not just a joke. In the first film, a bartender makes a beer called a “tree.” This is a good joke. The other phrase is “make like a tree.” In the sequel, a bartender will also say “make like a tree.” This is a common saying in the film. It’s a catchy one.
A common phrase for drinking a drink is “make like a tree.” It is a pun on the word leaf. A tree makes a leaf. It makes a drink. In the first film, the bartender says “make like a dog.” In the second, he says “make like a tree”. The second movie has a more complex metaphor. It refers to the cynicism of a tree.
A typical example of a pun is “make like a tree and leave” in the movie Trailer Park Boys. This is an idiomatic way to leave. It is an expression used to express the desire to leave, a tree makes a leaf, and a man “make like a tree and leave” it. But the word “make like a plant” is incorrect. The right variant of the phrase is “make-like a frog.”
A typical version of this phrase is “make like a tree and leave.” This is a humorous pun on leaving. In the trailer park boys movie, the eponymous term for leaving is “peach and cake.” The idiom is also found in a song from the soundtrack. In the third film, the film uses the phrase “make like a tree and leave”.
