Remember Avatar? Of course you remember Avatar, James Cameron’s revolutionary blockbuster/trenchancy metaphor for white imperialism that gave us such amazing settings as Hometree and the Tree of Souls. It changed filmmaking forever. Its plot inspires every single big-budget that’s made today.

And the dialogue. Oh, how good the dialogue was. With the words? You remember Avatar‘s incisive words, words you still quote today. Right?

OK. Literally no one remembers what Avatar was about or who was in Avatar or what anyone said during it. Which is OK, because the only thing Avatar is famous for is costing a quarter of a billion dollars and being an utter shit heap of a movie. That’s fine and all except that, well—well beyond any human’s possibility to comprehend things— they are making four sequels, which will again cost billions of dollars to make, according to reports this weekend.

People are utterly befuddled by it, and one man on Twitter tried to find out if anyone on the social networking behemoth—which has 328 million users—knew an Avatar quote.

To his surprise, lots did. Let’s see what everyone remember from Avatar.

Are any of these ringing a bell? Nope. Is that because you don’t remember Avatar all that well? Probably. Let’s see if a few more jog your memory.

Did you even see James Cameron’s Avatar? I’m starting to think you didn’t. Maybe these will help?

You see what they are doing? They are using other movie quotes, because Avatar was complete trash and the dialogue from it was completely useless and stupid. Here. You want real Avatar quotes? Suit yourself.

One of them is literally “Shut your pie hole.”

Give me the fake quotes any day of the week.
