Time for yet another quiz...

... for I am too lazy/boring to make up my own content this week. Here is a meme that I have adopted:

  • Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
  • Go to IMDb (or Wikiquote) and find a quote from each movie. (Or in some cases, just remember them.)
  • Post them here for everyone to guess.
  • Italicize it when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it correctly and the name of the movie.
  • NO GOOGLING/using IMDb/Wikiquote search functions. Anyone caught cheating will be put to death.
  • My sister can offer no more than one guess per hour.
  1. The sun will go on rising and setting whether I fail in Geometry or not. I think I'd rather it didn't go on if I failed. ["Anne of Green Gables" - guessed by Cherri]
  2. I thought she was a sandwich, 'til she went spare on me finger. ["Help!" - guessed by Cherri]
  3. The way he lets those few hairs in the back grow long and combs them up over his head, coming down behind his ears. It's ingenious, really. ["In the Good Old Summertime" - guessed by mommy]
  4. Perhaps you're interested in how a man undresses. ["It Happened One Night" - guessed by sarah]
  5. Whacking. I'm hell at whacking. ["Witness" - guessed by mommy]
  6. My little baby, off to destroy people. ["Mulan" - guessed by Elisabeth]
  7. It's funny. Guys understand nothing about women. It's ridiculous. Each sex off in their own dark corner... While if a guy took an interest in women, he'd be a pig in shit. ["L'Auberge Espagnole" - guessed by alfie]
  8. I am here for a lecture on navigation. Am I in the wrong place? ["Persuasion" - guessed by Beau]
  9. Do you like boats? ["Sliding Doors" - guessed by alfie]
  10. So, you have a twin sister. ["Return of the Jedi" - guessed by J]
  11. I'm nobody's weasel. ["Amélie" - guessed by J]
  12. If they can dye the river green today, why can't they dye it blue the other 364 days of the year? ["The Fugitive" - guessed by sarah]
  13. You're a brave man. Go and break through the lines. And remember, while you're out there risking your life and limb through shot and shell, we'll be in be in here thinking what a sucker you are. ["Duck Soup" - guessed by Cherri]
  14. Seriously, Betty, you know what this meteor could mean to science. If we find it, and it's real, it could mean a lot. It could mean actual advances in the field of science. ["The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra" - guessed by alfie]
  15. We are so lucky to have been raised amongst catalogs. ["Best In Show" - guessed by Bob]

4 is from it happened one night.
12 is from the fugitive

14 is totally Wet Hot American Summer. I suck at quote recognizing, though, so I'm no help on the rest here.

gravatar srah - March 5, 2008 - 2:06 PM -

Not so much.

gravatar Bob - March 5, 2008 - 2:06 PM -

15 Best in Show? Parker Posey.

gravatar Elisabeth - March 5, 2008 - 2:12 PM -

6 is Mulan, although I totally knew 15

gravatar lfar - March 5, 2008 - 2:55 PM -

6 is Mulan (I knew this before I read the person above me I swear!)
10. staarrr wars? the old ones. i guess... now known as number 4?
14. yes WHAS.. i knew that one too! darn it, I need to get here earlier.

You're very close on #10, but no cigar.

What is this Wet Hot American Summer everyone's talking about? I have never seen that movie. I suppose #14 could have stolen the line from WHAS... but #14 is NOT WHAS.

gravatar Cherri - March 5, 2008 - 3:14 PM -

1 is Anne of Green Gables
2 is Help!

gravatar J - March 5, 2008 - 3:16 PM -

10 is Return of the Jedi.
11 is Amelie. (I feel like I'm returning the favor of a gimme answering this one.)

3...I should know 3 but I can't place it.

gravatar Cherri - March 5, 2008 - 3:21 PM -

Oh, and i think 13 is Duck Soup. I'll be deeply ashamed if I'm wrong, as Duck Soup is my favorite Marx Brothers film.

gravatar Beau - March 5, 2008 - 4:36 PM -

#8 is From Persuasion--

gravatar mommy - March 5, 2008 - 9:50 PM -

#3 is In the Good Old Summer Time.
#5 is Witness.

gravatar alfie - March 5, 2008 - 11:29 PM -

#9 is Sliding Doors.

I know other ones, but apparently I can only guess that one.

gravatar alfie - March 6, 2008 - 12:03 AM -

This is my 12 o'clock hour guess. I'm choosing to think of it as 11 o'clock hour, 12 o'clock hour rather than spacing them out by an hour, because I need sleep.

#14 is The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. The movie that made that Hollywood Video guy fall in love with you.

Hint for #7 - it's subtitled.

gravatar alfie - March 6, 2008 - 8:58 AM -

#7 - L'Auberge Espanol?

gravatar srah - March 6, 2008 - 9:46 AM -

Well done. That one was almost more a test of how well you know my standard list of Favorite Movies than how well you know the movie itself, although I did skip over some of my very favorite movies because I couldn't remember any specific lines from Tampopo, for example, and I didn't like the quotes I found online.

Well done, everyone!

Great, now I have to come up with more content. Would you rather see a list of TV Characters I Would Date or a list of My Favorite Fictional Dennises? Because that's all I can think of to blog about right now.

gravatar mommy - March 6, 2008 - 9:48 PM -

How about both!
