Favorite Movie Geeks

The geek or nerd character in a movie is sometimes the most entertaining one of the film. And I think we all have a bit of nerdyness in us. Me too. I'm a movie geek and a book nerd, but not as stereotypical as in all the film they are portrayed. So I release my innernerd and show you my favorite movie geeks ever.

Geekiest quote: "Did you ever see that "Twilight Zone" where the guy signed a contract and they cut out his tongue and put it in a jar and it wouldn't die, it just grew and pulsated and gave birth to baby tongues? Pretty cool, huh?"

Why are they geeks? Well, the movies is called "Revenge of the Nerds" and it's kinda obvious.
Geekiest quote: "Hi, Gilbert. I'm a nerd too. I just found that out tonight. We have news for the beautiful people. There's a lot more of us than there are of you. I know there's alumni here tonight. When you went to Adams you might've been called a spazz, or a dork, or a geek. Any of you that have ever felt stepped on, left out, picked on, put down, whether you think you're a nerd or not, why don't you just come down here and join us. Okay? Come on."

Milton Waddans in "Office Space"
Played by: Stephen Root
Why is he a geek? He is a meek, fixated collator who constantly mumbles to himself, most notably about his workmates' borrowing his favorite red Swingline stapler and about his plan or threat to set the workplace on fire.

Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" series

Why is she a geek? She thinks studying is fun and she is the only one who doesn't like it when exams get cancelled. She takes more classes than she can hndle and she is the best in class.
