Movie Quote Game

4.14.2008

From Moomin Light:

  • Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
  • Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie (or quote them from memory).
  • Post them on your blog for everyone to guess.
  • Fill in the film title once it’s been guessed.

These are the players’ rules:
No Googling or using IMDb search functions (don’t cheat!).
Leave your answer(s) in the comments.

I pick the quotes; you guess without internet aid. I'll post the results as they come in.


1. "I don't want to be worshipped. I want to be loved." - Philadelphia Story (1940), Robb (who was too cool to actually comment)

2. "Where is Rebecca, my Becki-weckio?" - Kiss Me Kate (1953), Moomin Light!

3. "I want rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Methodists."

4. "These are my BREASTS. They're so BIG. I need a BRA to strap them and support because they're so HUGE they need to be hooked and strapped for support." - Superstar (1999), Kristen!

5. "At least you'll never be a vegetable - even artichokes have hearts." - Amelie (2001), Spiro!

6. "You think beautiful girls are going to stay stars forever? I should say not! Any minute now they're going to be out! Finished! Then it'll be my turn!"

7. "I was so lucky getting mono. That was like the best diet ever." - Romy and Michele's High School Reunion (1997), Johanna!

8. "Don't forget, a great impression of simplicity can only be achieved by great agony of body and spirit."

9. "I sacrificed three years for you. How could you love him after only three days?"

10. "When I'm done, you'll look like...What do you call beautiful? A tree. You'll look like a tree."

11. "With Major Lawrence, mercy is a passion. With me, it is merely good manners. You may judge which motive is the more reliable." - Lawrence of Arabia (1962), DF!

12. "God, thy will is hard. But you hold every card. I will drink your cup of poison, nail me to your cross and break me, bleed me, beat me, kill me! Take me now, before I change my mind!" - Jesus Christ Superstar (1973), Moomin Light!

13. "Aren't you ever gonna stop deluding yourself, hmm? Handling Max? Behaving like some ludicrous little underage femme fatale? You're... you're about as fatale as an afterdinner mint!"

14. "Paris? No. Not this city. It's too real and too beautiful to ever let you forget anything." - An American in Paris (1951), Steve Emery!

15. "Just as you are? Not thinner? Not cleverer? Not with slightly bigger breasts or slightly smaller nose?" - Bridget Jones' Diary (2001), Moomin Light!


Man, this is fun. I could go on and on. Aren't we lucky to be living in an age when we can own our favorite movies and watch them whenever want? The same with music. Technology may someday be the end of us, but it sure has its benefits.

Isn't #4 from Superstar?!

Maryann said...

Yes!

Kristen said...

Hahaha, glad I know the boob quote.

Maryann said...

You would. Booo Minnesota!

2. Kiss Me Kate.
12. Jesus Christ Superstar?

and I think your #15 may be from the same movie as mine (grin)?

I'll be interested to find out where the other quotes are from - they sound intriguing!

This is a fun game - I may do it every few months!

Maryann said...

A+! I am very impressed that you got #2--though I'm not surprised considering the musicals fan you are. Thanks again for the idea!

Steve Emery said...

Isn't #14 Gene Kelly's line from An American in Paris?

Spiro said...

i'm pretty sure that #5 from amelie... but if not, then it's from the science of sleep.

as for the rest, i have no idea!

Maryann said...

Yes, that's Gene Kelly and yes that's Amelie! Well done!

DF said...

Though I haven't seen the movie, I'd wager #11 is from Lawrence of Arabia. The rest is anyone's guess. I did the meme, too, via Moomin Light.

#7 is from Romy & Michelles! (for me it was food poisoning...)

Maryann said...

Haha! Yay, Johanna! Boo, tomato pasta.

#8's Mr. Lermontov from the Red Shoes. For some reason the quote that stuck in my head from watching that over and over when I was younger was "The ballroom scene's out. It's been cut." "Yes, but it's still there in my score," Julian says. Oh, and Lermontov telling him, "It is far worse to have to steal than to be stolen from." :)
