I Couldn't Resist the Movie Meme

After seeing this in both Whiz's and Suz's blogs, I just had to play.

1. Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb (or IMSDb) search functions.
5. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.


1) What do you do when the thing you most wanted, so perfect, just comes? Annette got this one - "The Red Violin." This movie sometimes gets mixed reviews, but I love it...if only because the music is wonderful to stitch by!

2) This whole office is not Feng Shui. All the desks are facing evil. Yay Karen! (It is "Never Been Kissed" -- I saw myself in this movie for such a long time.)

3) Sure as I know anything, I know this - they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people... better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave. Jenn (sewunicorn) gets the point for "Serenity." Oh, Cap'n Tightpants...you can stop by my house any time...

4) And then Jack chopped down what was the world's last beanstalk, adding murder and ecological terrorism to the theft, enticement and trespass charges already mentioned and all the giant's children didn't have a daddy any more. But he got away with it and lived happily ever after without so much as a guilty twinge about what he had done. Which proves that you can be excused just about anything if you're a hero, because no one asks inconvenient questions.

5) I play hockey and I fornicate, 'cause those are the two most fun things to do in cold weather.

6) There's a time when a man needs to fight, and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny is lost... the ship has sailed and only a fool would continue. Truth is... I've always been a fool.

7) All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us? 1 point to Suz for "Life of Brian." Ah, memories of high school, where my Latin teacher had us watch this movie for the Latin grammar lesson...

8) What is this thing? I mean, it serves no useful purpose for there to be a bunch of chompy, crushy things in the middle of a hallway.

9) That's the great thing about plankton. It pretty much keeps to itself.

10) Yeah, um, about that... I've decided to devote my life to Satan instead. Thanks though! "Saved!" -- Lisa in WA knew this one.

11) Thank God for the model trains, you know? If they didn't have the model trains they wouldn't have gotten the idea for the big trains.

12) The closer we are to danger, the farther we are from harm. It's the last thing he'll expect. Wow, a bonus point to bronzemom for not only getting the movie ("LOTR: The Two Towers"), but the characters, too!

13) It doesn't really take a Muse to inspire horny retards to empty their wallets. And another point to Suz for "Dogma."

14) Oh God, I pierced the toast! Teresa knew that was from "The Birdcage".

15) Never fall in love with a woman who sells herself. It always ends bad.

I'm sure there's more, and a couple of those are probably pretty easy for some of you, but they were some of the first ones I thought of (or stumbled upon while skimming my Netflix account - what can I say, I've seen a LOT of movies).

#7 - Life of Brian
#13 - Dogma

(I know a couple of others, too, but I don't want to be greedy :) )

Sewunicorn said...

3 - Serenity

Some others sound familiar but I can't jostle the brain enough at the moment.

Annette said...

#1 - The Red Violin!!!

Granted, this was way too easy since it was the first quote on my recent movie meme LOL! It's a bummer that IMDB doesn't have any more quotes from that movie :(

Karen said...

#2 - Never Been Kissed.

I love that movie!!

Is number 10 Bedazzled?

I *think* #14 is "The Birdcage", with Robin Williams and Nathan Lane. Specifically the part where Robin is trying to teach Nathan how to "be a man" while having breakfast?

Kind regards,
Teresa

#11 is it Beetlejuice?

Bronzemom said...

#12: Pippin to Merry and Treebeard. The Two Towers (Lord of the Rings Trilogy).

Karen said...

Lisa said...

#10 - Saved (I think)

A couple others sound familiar but I can't place them.
