OK. Now this is bugging me. I can remember seeing this movie on Creature Feature with Bob Wilkins. UGH!

I can't remember the name of the film with any certainty, but I'll take a shot and guess "Track of the Moon Beast". Or am I getting that title from another MST3K?
Well, you're definitely thinking of the right film. The scene you describe is the one I quoted with the "Bobby" line.

But you've got the wrong title. "Track of the Moon Beast" was made almost a decade later.

The one I quoted was made in 1964 and was black & white.

Yes, it was also on MST3K

Yeah, Plan 9 is pretty infamous. I was going to pull some quotes from that movie, but then I thought it would be too easy.

Yeah, I realized my mistake a few minutes ago; I know the right name, but the recollection was prompted by a video on Youtube, so I'll let it go. I didn't go looking for the answer, but it came up anyway, and it doesn't feel fair to take it now. So close!

I appreciate the honesty, but I would probably have to recommend that you run with it anyway. The intensely poor quality of this film just doesn't merit putting that much thought into having to guess it.

Well, all right then, if you insist; unless I'm wrong a second time, I believe the correct name of the film is "The Creeping Terror".

Ding, ding, ding.

You are correct, sir.

You're up.

BTW: Here is a Youtube clip of MST3K's rendition of the "Bobby" scene.

YouTube - MST3K - funniest scene ever!! (from The Creeping Terror)

One of the most hilarious movie monsters I've ever seen, the Terror. Really exquisite piece of work.

Here's something a little more recent, that frankly I'm surprised hasn't come up yet (at least, the thread search turned up nothing). I don't have ready access to the film, so I'm pulling this quote from the IMDB listing, forgive me if it's slightly inaccurate. It should still call to mind the scene and film in question:

X: You might say that we're the next endangered species; human beings.
Y: I think you're right, ma'am. I think you've hit the nail on the head.
X: Jones is my name. I'm in ensurance.


Yes, I spelled it that way on purpose.

Nothing, really? All right, this movie was directed by someone known for his less-than-orthodox storytelling, it was released in the '90s, and was inspired by/an homage to/a remake of a French film from thirty-someodd years earlier.

One more day and I'll pick an easier quote; to make this one less of a puzzle, this is a 1995 movie directed by Terry Gilliam, starring Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt. Deals with flashbacks and time travel? It's a fairly well known movie, I have to imagine a good number of people here have seen it.

Wow, is "12 Monkeys" that old already? I can't believe how time flies. I would never have guessed it had it not been for your final clue.

In a similar vein, here's a quote from a decade earlier.

"Ahhhhhh!...., here we are. Your very own number, on your very own door. And behind that door, your very own office. Congratulations, D Zed stroke oh one 5. Welcome to the team. (walking away) Yes!.. No!... Cancel that!"

-Jon

There we go! Sorry I had to be so blunt with the clue, but "12 Monkeys" it is, based on Chris Marker's 1962 "La Jetée", which makes heavy use of still photo montages to tell its story. Or so I read. I've yet to see it, I'm ashamed to say, despite loving "12 Monkeys" as much as I do.

The quote is the final lines from the film, meant--as I understand it--to sound like the character says "insurance", but as a friend of mine pointed out (which made me feel not-so-smart, since we were both twelve years old at the time), it could be heard as "ensurance", which makes more sense in light of the time travel/apocalypse aspect of the film.

I guess I jumped the gun before Robert confirmed the guess as "12 Monkeys", so I'll re-up my posted quote.

It is from a decade earlier than the aforementioned film, and bears some resemblance in terms of production:

"Ahhhhhh!...., here we are. Your very own number, on your very own door. And behind that door, your very own office. Congratulations, D Zed stroke oh one 5. Welcome to the team. (walking away) Yes!.. No!... Cancel that!"
