srah's quotes quiz

I've run out of musicals. Or maybe I haven't. These are quotes from all kinds of music and movies. Identify them or perish.

  1. When he's underwater, does he get wet? Or does the water get him instead?
  2. Maids like me - I'm neat. I like maids - they're neat.
  3. 1: You know carpentry. Can you do anything else? 2: Whacking. I'm hell at whacking.
  4. 1: This sausage is moldy! 2: Shut up and drink your gin.
  5. My friends would think I was a nut, turning water into wine.
  6. We're living in a material world and I am a material girl...or boy.
  7. 1: But why are you wearing these clothes? 2: Because I just went GAY all of a sudden!
  8. The computer has the evidence. No need to abort.
  9. Pretty eyes, pirate smiles.
  10. Just think of it as you're being let go, that your life's going in a different direction, that your body's part of a permanent outplacement.

Aargh! I perish. I know none of them. Except is 6 Madonna? Or was it a trick question?

I know #6, its The Wedding Singer, I never thought of it as a musical, but there are several songs in it.

Richard's 7 favorite musicals will be listed once I start my own blog. Right now I'm trying to get my scripts to talk to my database.

Waiting to hear back from customer support about the password problem

oh, and numbers 3 and 10 i KNOW I've heard, but I can't place them (yet). I perish for not having a clue on the rest of them.

1. "Particle Man" by Some Dude.
2. A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum (I think)
3. Witness (Harrison Ford's greatest moment...besides that one with the Nazis and the other one with the Wookie)
4. Oliver
5. "Solsbury Hill" (if I spelled it right) by Peter Gabriel, right? (Sadly, my first thought on this one was Life of Brian -- an honest mistake)
6. The Wedding Singer
7. Bringing Up Baby (I'd have never thought of this had I not just read an article on Katherin Hepburn)
8. Ah geez, what's the name of this song? "Major Tom?" Don't know the artist...
9. ...not a clue...
10. The Emperor's New Groove! (I finally saw this movie!)

Darn. Justin got all of the ones that I knew.

gravatar richard - August 29, 2003 - 11:22 PM -

you can lead us into battle anytime.

oh, and btw
#9 is "Tiny Dancer" - Elton John

Holy Hell, Justin. Next time they'll be harder.

Some Dude is named They Might Be Giants, by the way.

"Tiny Dancer!" Geez! I KNEW THAT! "Tiny Dancer" is one of my favorite songs of all time and I didn't recognize that line. Yeesh. Now, had you said "Jesus freaks on the streets handin' tickets out for God" I'd have nailed it.

Anyways, I'm better at the movie quotes. I tend to store useless knowledge in this head of mine (give me a pop culture themed crossword puzzle and I will KICK ASS). It's the really useful stuff that I forget. Stuff like...algebra.

I only knew "Particle Man." *sniff*

Major Tom is by David Bowie, FYI. Hmmm. A quiz, maybe I should blatently copy the concept and use it on my page. I'm in need of some blogging material...

gravatar srah - August 30, 2003 - 9:55 AM -

Algebra, ha!

gravatar srah - August 30, 2003 - 10:02 AM -

The Major Tom version I was listening to was the Peter Schilling English one. And Justin, are you a big Tony Danza fan, then?

gravatar Matt - August 30, 2003 - 10:49 AM -

Algebra? USEFUL?!? Gee, who'd a thunk it?

gravatar richard - August 30, 2003 - 2:01 PM -

yesss, I loved that bit on friends.

Wah. I got here too late and everybody's guessed already. Poo. :)

It's not the Life of Brian? Ahh.. damn that's the only one I was even CLOSE to...
