The "what's arugula? It's a vegetable" line absolutely kills me every time and I can't explain it.

I saw it’s a vegetable and cuz you could melt all this stuff all the time to blanks stares. I’m so glad there is someone that’s got my back. One day we will meet and the world will be right. Thank you

I got your back too. I drop the “melt all this stuff” every time I’m with my wife at the grocery store.

I frequently buy “Rocket” aka Arugula because I love arugula salads. I would have never known what it was had I not asked for it after seeing “My Blue Heaven”, and 30+ years later I still find myself mimicking “it’s a vegetable” every time I buy it.

If you're from metro NYC arugula is commonplace.

TreyRyan3

It’s common in most metro areas now, but in the late 80’s/early 90’s it wasn’t easy to find. To be fair, it the 80’s, salad greens selection was limited.

Americans born after like 1990 or so generally have no conception of the food wasteland that most of America once was. People would drive home from visits to Colorado with cases of Coors, because that was the "good stuff". Coffee was Folgers, or maybe if you were like a fancy New Yorker, Chock Full o' Nuts. In much of the country, you were lucky if you had two options for bread, brown and white. Heirloom tomatoes didn't exist. Apples were sawdust-flavored "red delicious" or granny smith. Greens were lettuce, and lettuce was iceberg.

Arugula definitely didn't exist.

I grew up in a top 10 metropolitan area, and lettuce options were usually iceberg, green leaf, romaine, spinach and green cabbage. Kale was decorative on salad bars only. Red Cabbage and most other greens were seasonal. Even red leaf lettuce was occasional. Apples were Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith and McIntosh. Broccoli, Celery, Carrots, Cauliflower and potatoes were always available fresh, but most others were seasonal, or only available canned or frozen in blocks (flash frozen wasn’t even conceivable.

I remember the first time I saw Napa and Bok Choy outside of an Asian specialty market.

Fun fact: up until 2013, Pizza Hut was the largest buyer of Kale in the US. It was used to cover the ice that was used to keep the salad bar cool.

Are you in Australia? It must be an unwritten law that rocket is served with every meal.

At the end when they’re building a baseball field and laying sod, he walks by and says that line. As if anyone would need to know that.

The way he says this, with the pause and the pursed lips, is brilliant.

I love arugula, and I think about that line a lot.

Me, making a salad, putting some arugula in a bowl: ...
My brain: "It's a ve-ge-ta-ble!"

I prefer the exchange in the bar between Moranis and Martin,

"Im wit chu"

"What do you mean?"

"Im undercover"

"Who made you undercover?"

"I did"

"It doesnt work that way!"

I often use the "Im wit chu" line with good customers when they make a suggestion I agree with.

Throw Johnny Dangerously in as the origin story, or a tie-in with My Cousin Vinny would be fine with me.

I thought Johnny Dangerously was Bruce Wayne's dad, and that's why Keaton made sense for the first Batman. Chip off the ol' block n' whatnot.

Goodfellas and My Blue Heaven are more strongly tied, as they're both based on the story of Henry Hill.

Nicholas Pileggi, who cowrote Goodfellas was married to Nora Ephron who wrote and produced My Blue Heaven.

You know, it's dangerous for you to be here in the frozen food section.

Why is that?

Because you could melt all this stuff
