Here's a hint: The actor who says that played the role of Hunk Houghton in a different movie.

Hoopfest small talk borrowed from movie

You could try out a line from 1981's “Body Heat.”

“You can stand here next to me if you want, but you'll have to promise not to talk about the heat.”

Or you could go with a line from “Biloxi Blues.”

“It's like Africa hot.”

If Springsteen had been from Spokane

Would any lines in “Born to Run” besides “Sprung from cages on Highway 9” have been different?

And if the movie “The Wild One” had been set in Spokane, when Brando's character responds to the question about what he's rebelling against with his own question — “Whaddya got?” —  what would the answer have been?

Maybe something about well-tended lawns and people wanting you to turn the music down.
