Law School Mommy and The BLS posted this meme on their sites recently. Since I’ve had fun guessing at other people’s favorite quotes, and I love watching movies, I thought I’d go ahead and do my own…
A. Pick 11 of your favorite movies.
B. Then pick one of your favorite quotes from each movie.
C. Post the quotes on your blog.
D. Have commenters guess what the movie is.
E. Place the guesser’s user name directly after the quote.
F. Extra points for knowing the actor or character’s name.
Thanks everyone for playing! If you think you're a real movie buff -- try this.
UPDATE 1: I guess some of my favorites are way too easy, given that John Roberts cleared over half of them within about the first 15 minutes.
UPDATE 2: Law School Virgin picked up on my weakness for chick flicks.
UPDATE 3: Looks like Lance Ito and Namby cleaned house on the rest of them
Score: John Roberts - 14 points. Lily - 2 points. Namby - 3 points. Lance - 15 points.
#1. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next. Guessed by John Roberts: Maximus, Gladiator (Russell Crowe)
#2. The question isn't "what are we going to do," the question is "what aren't we going to do?" Guessed by Namby and Lance (credit to both because Lance did IM me with the answer): Ferris, Ferris Bueller's Day Off (Matthew Broderick).
#3. You were lookin' for that third three, but you forgot that Professor Green folded on
#4. What is it with this chick? She got beer-flavored nipples? Guessed by Lily Graypure: Patrick, 10 Things I Hate About You (Heath Ledger)
#5. Just a dog? Porthos dreams of being a bear, and you want to shatter those dreams by saying he's just a dog? What a horrible candle-snuffing word. That's like saying, "He can't climb that mountain, he's just a man", or "That's not a diamond, it's just a rock." Just. Guessed by Lance Ito: JM Barrie, Finding Neverland (Johnny Depp)
#6. Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe? Guessed by Lance Ito: Bender, The Breakfast Club (Judd Nelson)
#7. I like how wine continues to evolve, like if I opened a bottle of wine today it would taste different than if I'd opened it on any other day, because a bottle of wine is actually alive.…And it tastes so fucking good. Guessed by John Roberts. Assist by Dicta -- denied. Sideways. Lance got the name: Maya (Virginia Madsen)
#8. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM. Guessed by John Roberts: William Wallace, Braveheart (Mel Gibson)
#9. We're at the airport…I already seen the airport. Guessed by Lance Ito: Tourist Guy -- Stephens, Speed (Alan Rink -- he also played Cameron in Ferris Bueller).
#10. The first night's the toughest, no doubt about it. They march you in naked as the day you were born, skin burning and half blind from that delousing shit they throw on you, and when they put you in that cell... and those bars slam home... that's when you know it's for real. A whole life blown away in the blink of an eye. Guessed by John Roberts: Shawshank Redemption. Lance got that Morgan Freeman said it, but he's character's name was Red, not Boyd.
#11. I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to fuckin' amuse you? Guessed by John Roberts: Tommy DeVito, Goodfellas (Joe Pesci)
