Time for a meme game (thanks Gina).

1. Pick five of your favorite movies that many people have seen.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie. Try to get a mix of easy and hard to recognize. And avoid spoilers please. :-)
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. When someone gets one of yours right, go back and italicize it (click HTML GUIDE on the edit form if you need help) and note who was right.
5. After a few days, reveal the answers that nobody guessed right.
6. Once all five of yours are revealed, repeat with quotes 6-10, et cetera.

For this to work, no looking up the answers! No Googling, no searching IMDb, and no looking at each other's profiles on this site or MySpace/LiveJournal/Facebook to see each other's favorite movies. Have fun!

Scott Hardie | January 29, 2009
I'll start us off:

1) "Kane will be a dead man in half an hour and nobody's gonna do anything about it." - Sarah, High Noon

2) "God, I'd give anything for a drink. I'd give my god-damned soul for just a glass of beer." - Samir, The Shining

3) "Can you believe it? We're in the middle of a drought, and the water commissioner drowns. Only in L.A." - Samir, Chinatown

4) "Frank, they're not here for you. Weird Al Yankovic is on the plane." - Samir, The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!

5) "Assimilate this!" - Amy/Samir, Star Trek: First Contact

Amy Austin | January 29, 2009
Hmm... possibly fun --

1) Um... Citizen Kane?

2) Shoot... I'm certain I should know this -- the movie Bedazzled is a re-make of?

3) Um... no.

4) No again.

5) One of the later Star Trek movies... do I have to actually know which one?

2) ?

3) ? again.

4) Chris Walken in Annie Hall -- hilarious that you chose that one... was just discussing it recently!

5) Mmm... is that the movie about Sylvia Plath?

6) Damn... lost again.

Saw it with Ed and thought it was a great movie. Not so great to watch or think of while going through what I've been through for all the time since, though. Horrible for a separation/divorce, in fact... especially if watching the movie together was one of your happy memories with them. More than one tear, I promise.

Sarah Kyle | January 29, 2009
Scott isn't the answer to the first one high noon?? I do believe it was a 1950's or 1960's movie.. I know I am young just watched it many of times with my aunt..

Scott Hardie | January 29, 2009
Samir, #6 is Do the Right Thing, Sam Jackson before he added the L. Great movie, one of my utmost favorites.

You've all done a good job of guessing mine. My new list:

6) "In every class, there's always one joker who thinks that he's smarter than me. In this class, that happens to be you. Isn't it, Mayonnaise?" - Tony, An Officer and a Gentleman

7) "I've been tutoring this boy named Stuart. In the vision, I saw him drown. But that's not the point. In the vision, something was missing." - Steve, The Dead Zone

8) "I think now, looking back, we did not fight the enemy; we fought ourselves. The enemy was in us." - Steve/Amy, Platoon

9) "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve." - Tony, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings

10) "I'm not a smart man... but I know what love is." - Tony/Amy, Forrest Gump

Tony Peters | January 29, 2009
Scott # 6 is officer and a gentleman #9 is Fellowship of the Ring #10 is Forrwst Gump i think


1) We call this piece the Fecalator. One look at it and the target shits him or herself. Try it on Aaron, Dogma

2)Sweet, juicy, soft on your tongue, grainy like a sugary sand that dissolves in your mouth. How's that? CITY OF ANGELS

3)OK, so... so... sometimes I lie. I mean, I'm weird, man. About random stuff too, I don't even know why I do it. It's like... it's like a tick, I mean sometimes I hear myself say something and think, Wow, that wasn't even remotely true. Amy, Garden State

4)Yeah. Um... I had an adrenaline rush. It's very common. You can Google it, Scott, Twilight,

5) It's like seeing someone for the first time, and you look at each other for a few seconds, and there's this kind of recognition like you both know something. Next moment the person's gone, and it's too late to do anything about it. Scott, Out of Sight

Steve West | January 29, 2009
1. Wait a minute. I don't know much about mutinies, but I do know it isn't good form to plan them at the top of your voice. - Beau Geste

2. He won't. I can't explain it... He - he would consider that rude. Samir - The Silence of the Lambs

3. I distrust a man who says "when." If he's got to be careful not to drink too much, it's because he's not to be trusted when he does. Tony - The Maltese Falcon

4. No, I don't feel lucky to be alive! I feel lucky I'm not dead. There's a difference. - Breaking Away

5. I don't know why he saved my life. Maybe in those last moments he loved life more than he ever had before. Not just his life - anybody's life, my life. All he'd wanted were the same answers the rest of us want. Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got? All I could do was sit there and watch him die. Tony - Blade Runner

Steve West | January 29, 2009
Scott, #7 is The Dead Zone, I think and #8 is either Apocalypse Now or Platoon. Let's go with Platoon.

Tony Peters | January 29, 2009
Steve #5 is Blade Runner abnd #3 is Maltese Falcon

Amy Austin | January 29, 2009
Shoot... beaten to An Officer & A Gentleman -- but not to Forrest Gump, I see!

Tony's #3 is Garden State.

Beaten to Blade Runner, too, I see.

I remember hearing a few of the unsolved lines above, but I can't place them in a movie. This is interesting.

11) "I speak. You do not speak. Your job is to just sit there and look innocent." - Primal Fear

12) "If you'd come to me in friendship, then this scum that ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And if by chance an honest man like yourself should make enemies, then they would become my enemies. And then they would fear you." - Steve, The Godfather

13) "Don't you see? We are dying. I longed desperately to escape, to pack my bags and free, but I did not." - Sophie's Choice

14) "Champagne for my real friends, and real pain for my sham friends." - 25th Hour

15) "It's always difficult to keep personal prejudice out of a thing like this. And wherever you run into it, prejudice always obscures the truth. I don't really know what the truth is. I don't suppose anybody will ever really know." - 12 Angry Men

Steve West | January 30, 2009
Scott, #12 The Godfather.

Tony Peters | January 30, 2009
11 and 15 I've heard but can't place but #12 is Godfather

Steve West | January 30, 2009
Scott #15 is on my favs list.

Steve West | January 30, 2009
11. Which one of you nuts has got any guts? - One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

12. You know, there's a million fine looking women in the world, dude. But they don't all bring you lasagna at work. Most of 'em just cheat on you. Aaron - Clerks

13. As long as there's, you know, sex and drugs, I can do without the rock and roll. Samir - This Is Spinal Tap

14. You must be dead, because I don't know how to feel. I can't feel anything anymore. - E.T. - The Extra-terrestrial

15. There's a lotta things about me you don't know anything about, Dottie. Things you wouldn't understand. Things you couldn't understand. Things you shouldn't understand. Amy - PeeWee's Big Adventure (Erik with the assist)

Erik Bates | January 30, 2009
15, I'm going to guess is Big Top Peewee.

I'm a loner Dottie. A rebel.

Amy Austin | January 30, 2009
Damn... beaten again to Princess Bride and PeeWee's Big Adventure. (Well, sort of... Eric gets partial credit, I think ...;-))

I think Scott's #11 is Scent of a Woman, though, if I'm not mistaken...
(edit: ...and apparently, I am.)

Aaron Shurtleff | January 30, 2009
Steve's #12 is Clerks!!

I think Scott's number 11 is one of the Oceans movies, but I'm not sure which. But I'm not sure...

16) "I have something to give you. I don't want it anymore. Thirty hours of pain all at once, all for you." - Amy, The Crow

17) "And then what did he do? Did he train you? Did he rehearse you? Did he tell you exactly what to do, what to say? You were a very apt pupil too, weren't you? You were a very apt pupil! Well, why did you pick on me? Why me?" - Samir, Vertigo

18) "What ain't no country I've ever heard of. They speak English in What?" - Samir, Pulp Fiction

19) "My wife deserves vengance. Doesn't make a difference whether I know about it. Just because there are things I don't remember doesn't make my actions meaningless." - Samir, Memento

20) "I was sheriff of this county when I was twenty-five years old. Hard to believe. My grandfather was a lawman; father too. Me and him was sheriffs at the same time; him up in Plano and me out here. I think he's pretty proud of that. I know I was. Some of the old time sheriffs never even wore a gun. A lotta folks find that hard to believe. Jim Scarborough'd never carry one; that's the younger Jim. Gaston Boykins wouldn't wear one up in Camanche County. I always liked to hear about the oldtimers. Never missed a chance to do so. You can't help but compare yourself against the oldtimers. Can't help but wonder how theyd've operated these times. There was this boy I sent to the 'lectric chair at Huntsville Hill here a while back. My arrest and my testimony. He killt a fourteen-year-old girl. Papers said it was a crime of passion but he told me there wasn't any passion to it. Told me that he'd been planning to kill somebody for about as long as he could remember. Said that if they turned him out he'd do it again. Said he knew he was going to hell. 'Be there in about fifteen minutes.' I don't know what to make of that. I sure don't. The crime you see now, it's hard to even take its measure. It's not that I'm afraid of it. I always knew you had to be willing to die to even do this job. But, I don't want to push my chips forward and go out and meet something I don't understand. A man would have to put his soul at hazard. He'd have to say, 'O.K., I'll be part of this world.'" - Samir, No Country for Old Men

21. Frankly, you're beginning to smell and for a stud in New York, that's a handicap. Samir - Midnight Cowboy

22. You want to know something funny? You actually made me think about the law. I managed to go through three years of law school without doing that. Tony - The Firm

23. Are you coming? See, how it works is, the train moves, not the station. A League Of Their Own

24. Colin's not a blind man as long as he's with me. And he's going with me! The Great Escape

25. I am a dedicated actor, Paula, you know? I am dedicated to my art and my craft, I value what I do. And because of a mentally arthritic director, I am about to play the second greatest role in the history of the English-speaking theater like a fresh double-order of California fruit salad. The Goodbye Girl

26) "You expect me to believe that scantily clad, in the arms of another man, in the middle of the night, inside an elephant you were rehearsing?" - Samir, Moulin Rouge!

27) "You have me at a loss. You know my name but who are you? Just another American who saw too many movies as a child? Another orphan of a bankrupt culture who thinks he's John Wayne? Rambo? Marshal Dillon?" - Steve, Die Hard

28) "The strangeness of this life cannot be measured: in trying to produce my own death, I was elevated to the status of a living hero." - Tony, Dances With Wolves

29) "I admire you as a policeman, particularly your adherence to violence as a necessary adjunct to the job." - Samir, L.A. Confidential

30) "I'm the key figure in an ongoing government charade, the plot to conceal the truth about the existence of extraterrestrials. It's a global conspiracy, actually, with key players in the highest levels of power, that reaches down into the lives of every man, woman, and child on this planet, so, of course, no one believes me." - Tony, The X Files

The Man Who Wasn't There is indeed a great movie. It seems like the Coens are better represented in this discussion than any other filmmakers.

Well, speaking of tore up, I would have inserted "More like Devoured By Wolves..." after Samir's post at February 7 2009, 1:11pm EST!

Jackie, your #8 is from the LOTR trilogy -- I *think* The Return of the King... possibly The Two Towers -- Sam to Frodo, I do know that much.

And your #12 is War of the Worlds, I think.

OK, for 18 I'll go with Crumb. I've never seen it, and I'm not at all familiar with the guy it's about, but the clue seems to point to it being possible...

I'm at least honest about my ignorance...
