Kill the Gophers
Sandy: Carl I want you to kill all the gophers on the golf course
Carl Spackler: Correct me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers they'll lock me up and throw away the key.
Sandy: Not golfers, you great fool. Gophers. The *little* *brown*, *furry* *rodents*.
Carl Spackler: We can do that. We don't even need a reason.
Cathie saw this gopher on our deck the other morning. She recognized that it was a gopher from the gopher's shes seen in the movie Caddyshack.
Update: I saw the little fella again and I think he's way too big to be a gopher. I did some research and it looks like he's a groundhog/woodchuck, which I just found out are the same thing. The downside is that there are very few classic movie lines involving woodchucks. Groundhogs on the other hand have whole movies written about them.
