5. I THINK HE TOOK HIS WALLET GUY FROM BACK TO THE FUTURE PART 2(1989)
Thomas Wilson is a scene stealing actor. Who could ever forget his performance as Biff Tannen in 'Back To The Future' or Griff Tannen in 'Back To The Future Part 2' or as Buford 'Mad Dog' Tannen in 'Back To The Future part 3.' Even more memorable were his turns as Old Biff and Alternate 1985 Biff, but I digress.
Point is, Wilson can steal the scene from the best of them, but for a brief shining moment I Think He Took His Wallet Guy stole the scene from him. Bravo, I Think He Took His Wallet Guy, bravo.
If you don't remember: after Biff is punched out in the school parking lot, Marty swipes the Sports Almanac from him. With the grace of a cat I Think He Took His Wallet guy springs into action telling all within earshot of the possible wallet theft. I still get teary eyed.
4. TALKING DOG IN SUMMER OF SAM(1999)
I hated this movie, but I do remember the 'Talking Dog'. I don't even know what he said, but I loved him. I wish every lousy movie had a talking dog.
3. GREG IN E.T. THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL (1982)
Elliot's brother Michael had a lot of friends. Maybe not the 'give you a ride to the airport' friends, but at the very least he had the 'play D & D and eat pizza all night' friends. For my money, thems some good friends.
Michael's friends each had their own thing, weather it be trying to grab Michael's Mom's Butt or wearing giant headphones, but my favorite was Greg.
I like Greg because the man is good to have in a argument.
Let me set the scene: Elliot is arguing about the possibility of an alien being in his room, Greg doesn't believe him. Elliot says that Greg is 'immature'. So Greg calls Elliot a 'cintus supremus'. No one to this day knows what that is, but it stings to be called that. Try it sometime. In retaliation, Elliot calls Greg 'zero charisma' then they volley back and forth, neither giving in, until finally Elliot breaks the chain by screaming 'Shut up, Greg!'.
Yes, Greg bested Elliot, and he still got to fly on his bike with E. T.
2. PUNCHED GUY IN MALLRATS (1995)
I love this guy. He excitedly runs up to T.S. in the parking lot and asks him if he broke up with Brandi, and gets a punch in the chops for it.
I know it's a bit of looped dialogue to cover a hastily re-written opening, but it still cracks me up, and that is why Punched Guy is #2 on this list.
1. COSMO FROM BOOGIE NIGHTS (1997)
He likes firecrackers and we like him. I don't know why he likes them or what his relationship with Alfred Molina is, and to be honest, I don't care. I just love the way he lights them firecrackers.
Hail to thee, Cosmo, we salute you!
