Furf has the highest raw output of quotable quotes, but Moe pulls out a mem-moe-rable gem every once in awhile….
Here are just a few points to ponder...
Furf comments on Morrilton’s chances of beating Vilonia with their “maroon wanna-color-be, with that color they use to imitate other colors:
“NO WAY IN A DEVIL'S HOP, SKIP OR ANYTHING”
It’s not necessarily a quote, but Furf definitely makes a statement when he winds up and cuts loose with his one of a kind
At the 1995 PHS-Bigelow football game, Moe stood in the referee’s huddle and listened to their discussion of a controversial play, then gave his one-word opinion of the call that we all shared….
Furf’s description of the “non-followers of me:”
“THOSE PEOPLE WITH NO LIFE AND NO RETRIBUTION TO GIVE”
During the first Super Bowl series, Moe listened to Furf talk and talk, then raised the bar for intense press conferences by telling Furf when he would smell what the rock is cookin:’
“AFTER I KICK YOUR ---“
Furf was known to record a few strange football scores on the board during the original SuperPicks contests; Here is one of the most notable scores left behind by his “magic pen” on the board:
“42 TO H”
Moe has a knack for summarizing complicated situations; When Kyle Fuller was talking to the coaches about his grades, he said he was worried that his dad might not come pick him up if he found out what his grades were. Two words of advice from Moe:
Moments before a football game at Atkins, Furf felt the pain of seeing a blown state championship trophy that sat in the Atkins trophy case. He was ready for a little payback that night:
“TONIGHT WE'RE GONNA RETRACT THAT TROPHY”
Furf was ready for revenge after the greatest game in SuperSeries history and wanted to play game 3 in the worst possible conditions:
“I HOPE IT'S SLOPPY AS A PIG PEN IN A BACK YARD AT BIGELOW”
Furf is known far and wide by the opposite sex and has had them waiting for him when the bus pulled up. He has known for some time that he is a legend and knows what it means to some of his fans who can hardly believe it when they find themselves in his presence:
“THESE GIRLS ASKED ME IF I WAS WHO I WAS”
In a Moe vs Furf vs Joe Football pick week, it came down to one game. The score went Moe’s way, but Furf wouldn’t take the defeat without calling in to double-check on the score. Reaching for the phone, he declared:
“I'VE GOT TO GET A CONFRONTATION OF THAT SCORE”
Furf’s advice on playing the game when the fans turn against you, a situation he ran into on occasion during the SuperSports era:
“YOU'VE GOT TO OVERLOOK THESE ABSTRACTIONS “
After a loss, three coaches, all wanting to get out of town, asked the same question at different times. “why is this bus still sitting here?”
Without ever mentioning that the question had been asked before, Moe stayed in focus: Moe had the answer all three times:
“THAT BUS IS IN FRONT OF US “
A few more from MOE:
To Furf: LET'S RUMBLE
To Nathan Brand: GET YOUR OWN ---- TOWEL
To everyone: BECAUSE I CAN
To everyone: WHAT TIME IS IT? IT’S MOE-TIME
Some final thoughts from Furf
To someone at practice: YOU WON'T CATCH ME WITH THAT STACK OF DIMES YOU CALL A NECK
To Moe: LIKE TURKEY TRACKS IN THE MUD
To Moe: LIKE THUNDER OUT OF A PEACH IN SEASON
To Moe (but something for everyone to ponder):
THERE'S TWO SIDES TO EVERY CREEK; THE MUDDY SIDE AND THE WATER SIDE
FURF HAS NOW EXPANDED THE RANGE OF HIS QUOTES BY GOING WORLDWIDE…..(WEB, THAT IS….)
HERE ARE SOME QUOTES VIA EMAIL:
“I have incountered a flu like cold”
Furf’s initial response to a story from Philip Carter on Moe & Furf’s experience in Springdale with Butch, some hockey players, some strippers, and some beer:
Someone has injected the vintom of a false story.
These are but a few words of wisdom poured out over the past few years; there are too many to list here….
The quotes, as well as the entire Moe vs Furf Experience, can best be summed up by a quote from Furf in November of 2000:
“The best there is is still here today”
Moe & Furf have now made some selected quotes available worldwide through the use of the internet. Here is a sample email (slightly edited) from them concerning some controversial stories that have been brought out questioning their character…
MOE & FURF STRIKE BACK
Hey how are you. It is me again and since the new news of Philip Carter has hit the waves on our web page I myself have some of my own......
I have incountered a flu like cold
In the history of P.H.S sports this has never been done and I have missed the district tournament. Now it wasn’t something that was planned but happened. Still today I am about 85-90% still down but not out, To me the news is that a new person is here………..
Someone has injected the vintom of a false story.
Now that me and moe have viewed and have talked about this it is to our conclusion that the story of Philip Carter is not true, although it was funny and very amusing.
The story is this:
The year of 1997 we did go to Springdale but it was my first trip and moes 2nd for him but when I got there we got to the rooms for the 2 night trip and left Sunday. We played games on and off for a while and the guys did both of us tried to get us to do the unthinkable - getting the beverages but we declined. Ok from there we traveled with video games and for most of the night we played through the evening till around 11:30 or12:00 and lock down lights out!!
Well It sounds nice but when Saturday night got around there were Hockey players who were there but sorry to say none of us were involved.
Ok next in response…….
moe says that he doesn’t know what he is talking about and he needs to know his role and shut up.
Back to the story not true
Now back to the story
Ok well Butch caught the guys by the pool and it was Carter and others who were caught by Butch........ Now that some of the story is half/and half the rest of the story.
The next morning Butch was up waiting for a team meeting for the day. At breakfast he was talking about the one night in question also Joe Stoute was there as well. Well Butch was telling the story and at that time all who knew were moe and me were so did Butch he made a joke of the situation.
Well it looks like some were upset on the fact that moe and me didn’t go out with the others and partake in their stuff. But when they asked me and moe for the beverages we said no chance you will get it from us but other sources……. They got it from some local college guy who was with the hockey players.
How is it that we are famous and others want to be like us?
They want to be us but no one can come close to 2 legends such as us.
All of this is just a response to Philip Carter from moe and me. It is a good story for the tabloid news stand stuff, but all is just almost to good to be true.
But not …..
I said it is not …..
First let me say this about the message board; it is interesting never the less fun.
I liked the message recording of me to howard
We think Riggs is someone in the Atkins area,
It could be Coach Long an old rival of coach Smith…… Could it be him? Who knows?
We see a Smith-Long series.
For some one sick and recovering at home what a better way to sound off and the both of us respond at this time. Myself could go on for hours but you will find No Dancing Friday at Atkins No, No, No, No……….
And Moe offered to give Long a nice gift soon……..
NOTE FROM PEFCA:
He didn’t ever really come out and say what the gift was; We probably can’t put it here anyway…..
IT NEVER ENDS……
When Moe was asked recently about being suspended from the field after a questionable incident of vandalism, Moe had this to say:
WHO RUNS THIS SHOW?
FURF DESCRIBED THE POSSIBILITY OF AN EXTREME DIVE ON THE FIELD AT THE END OF THE BIGELOW GAME ON THURSDAY NIGHT, STATING THAT IT WILL BE
" THE FINAL EXCLAMATION POINT ON THE COFFIN".
FURF DESCRIBED GIVING THE FINGER TO COACHES FROM BIGELOW IN HIS HEAD, BUT THEN HE HAD TO LET IT OUT. ACCORDING TO HIM,
I PHYSICALLY UNLACED MY ARTHRITIC FINGER
IN THE SPRING OF 2006 IT APPEARED THAT THE 300 MILLION WORD VOCABULARY OF FURF HAD FINALLY RUN DRY OF CLASSIC FURF-ISM’S. HOWEVER, HE ONCE AGAIN UNLEASHED HIS MIGHTY INTELLECT AND DUG DEEP TO SHOW THE SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT WORLD THAT HE STILL IS THE MASTER OF THE QUOTE WITH WHAT MAY BE ONE OF HIS TOP ALL-TIME QUOTES.
IT DOESN’T TAKE A TWO YEAR OLD SCIENTIST TO TEACH A MONKEY HOW TO PISS IN SPACE
DON’T EVER DOUBT, TO QUOTE FURF, THE POWER AND WRATH OF ALMIGHTY FURF
BUT WAIT, THERE'S A FEW MORE FROM MOE:
IN A RECENT CONVERSATION WITH FURF, HIS CELL PHONE DROPPED OUT AT LEAST 7 OR 8 TIMES. WHEN HE FINALLY CALLED THIS REPORTER BACK FROM A LAND LINE, HE WAS HEARD TO SAY THAT HIS CELL PHONE WAS……….GET READY…….
“DROPPING OUT LIKE A TWINKIE BAR AT A ROSIE O’DONNELL CONCERT”
JUST A FEW MINUTES EARLIER, HE TALKED TO JOSH COLE ABOUT THE JR LADY MUSTANGS TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP CELEBRATION IN WHICH HE AND MOE HAD A FEW THINGS TO SAY:
"we gave speeches like we were at a Rosie O'Donnell bar."
JOSH COLE ALSO REPORTS THE FOLLOWING MOE-ISMS UTTERED DURING A RECENT MADDEN FOOTBALL GAME:
Regarding a pass that was in his receivers' hands, and fell incomplete, Moe commented that it was……
"like butter on the toast"
A pass that he overthrew and got upset at his QB when the receiver was……….
"wide open like a sack of groceries"
BUT JUST WHEN YOU THINK THAT'S ABOUT IT, THERE'S ALWAYS A FEW MORE FROM FURF:
"Games are just like eggs; Once you crack them, they’re done."
"There are three things you can always count on: The sun is gonna rise, A new day is gonna start, and you take a dump."
