The movie quote game

At Emma's suggestion--since I titled my last post with one!

A. Pick 16 of your favorite movies.
B. Then pick one of your favorite quotes from each movie.
C. Post the quotes in your journal.
D. Have those on your friends list try to guess what the movie is. If you google, you suck.
E. Strike out the quote once it has been correctly identified and place the guesser’s username directly after the quote.

Okay, we'll start with that one.

1. "His bathroom is bigger than the Blue Banana." Pretty Woman, Emma Sinclair
2. "Hello? McFly?" Back to the Future, Michele
3. "Boy, I got vision and the rest of the world wears bifocals."
4. "What an infantile idea! What a heartless, wicked, brainless thing to do."
5. "...and then they made me their chief--" Pirates of the Caribbean I, Allison
6. "With all this foil in my hair, I'm picking up HBO."
7. "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." The Princess Bride, Michele
8. "Really? How many corpses have you stabbed?" Gosford Park, Amelia (even thoigh I had to tell her the actual title)
9. "This is your captain speaking. We may experience some turbulence and then...explode." Serenity, Michele
10. "I can keep talking until you strike me dead. Or not. I prefer not." Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Alysia (extra points for knowing he also wrote Serenity!)
11. "That's Ren and Stimpy. They are way existential." Clueless, Allison
12. "If you say 'war' just once more, I'll go in the house and shut the door."
13. "I dazzled him with my...wits." 10 Things I Hate About You, Emma Sinclair
14. "It's like table tennis, only with slightly smaller balls."
15. "Your intrails will become your extrails." A Knight's Tale, Michele
16. "Why can't you wear black shoes, like the other mamas?"

Bonus points if you can tell me which of those quotes were written by the same person. And how many were adapted from books (or plays!). Er, and for anyone who can tell me how to strike out text.

Yep, I went slightly past my orginal target. BUT I do have a range: 12-15k. So that's alright. I just wanted to make the minumum...and now I really hope I don't go over the maximum. I hate cutting.

  1. Ok, K8, I'm going to guess on just a few.

    2) Back to the Future?
    7) The Princess Bride
    9) Serenity
    15) A Knight's Tale

  2. #1 - Pretty Woman
    #13 - 10 Things I hate about you (really a fantastic movie, lol)

    I'm sure I know #10, but it's just on the tip of my brain.

  3. Allison AllyC12:33 am

    Whee! I know a couple ... 5 is Pirates of the Caribbean (go Cap'n Jack!) and 11 is Clueless. Is this how is works? My brain's not functioning right now.

  4. 10 is from Buffy the Vampire Slayer! which would have been written by joss the same as the serenity quote? eh? eh? am i right?

  5. #8, I want to say it's the one with the servants and the one butler dude is the illegitimate son of the master of the house and the head maid, and the maid kills the master so the son only stabs his dead body... what the heck is that movie???

  6. Gosford Park. Kate told me, but said if I commented just the title, it'd be cheating since she told me the name of the movie. However, I described it pretty well, no? I should still get points!
