A challenge!

1. Pick 16 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.


1. Tyrone, you know how much I love watching you work, but I've got my country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it; I'm swamped.

2. The world changes, we do not, there lies the irony that finally kills us.

3. Lawyers should never marry other lawyers. This is called in-breeding; from which comes idiot children... and more lawyers.

4. But they showed no corrections of any kind. Not one. He had simply written down music already finished in his head. Page after page of it as if he were just taking dictation. And music, finished as no music is ever finished. Displace one note and there would be diminishment. Displace one phrase and the structure would fall.

5. With a prompter in every cellar window whispering comebacks, shy people would have the last laugh.

6. Lose it? I didn't lose it. It's not like, "Whoops! Where'd my job go?" I QUIT. Someone pass me the asparagus.

7. Your fuckin' family's dug into the Southie projects like ticks. Three-decker men at best. You, however, grew up on the North Shore, huh? Well, la-di-fuckin'-da. You were kind of a double kid, I bet, right? Huh? One kid with your old man, one kid with your mother. You're upper-middle class during the weeks, then you're droppin' your "R"s and you're hangin' in the big, bad Southie projects with your daddy, the fuckin' donkey on the weekends. I got that right? [No answer] Yup. You have different accents? You did, didn't you? You little fuckin' snake. You were like different people.

8. You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it's me, I'm a little fucked up maybe, but I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to fuckin' amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?

9. Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

10. A - You got into Harvard Law? B - What, like it's hard?

11. I don't want something I need. I want something I want - something pretty.

12. A - One question about your business, boy, or there's no use going: This girl... how far are you willing to go to save her? B - I'd die for her. A - Oh good. No worries then.

13. She's gone. She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen.

14. A - What makes you think she's a witch? B - Well, she turned me into a newt! A - A newt? B - I got better...

15. Ma chère mademoiselle. It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight. And now, we invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair, as the dining room proudly presents... your dinner.

16. You must be imaginative, strong-hearted. You must try things that may not work, and you must not let anyone define your limits because of where you come from. Your only limit is your soul. What I say is true - anyone can cook... but only the fearless can be great.

Alright I am so playing along...here's my guesses & then I am totally doing this one later when I get back from shopping. We have a lot of the same favorites so I'll have to think up a few different ones. Very curious about the ones I don't know & #7 is killing me that I don't know it off the top. It is so familiar & when I find out what it is I am going to kick myself!

1. Inconceivable!

6. American Beauty (??)

8. Goodfellas

10. Any Cosmo girl would have known.

11. Love Actually

13. I'm holding up my boom box for this movie right now.

14. NEE!

15. Beauty & The Beast

1. Princess Bride
3. Adam's Rib
4. Amadeus
7. The Departed
8. Goodfellas
9. The Godfather
10. Legally Blonde
11. Love Actually
13. Say Anything
14 Monty Python and the Holy Grail
15 Beauty and the Beast

kate said...

1. Princess Bride
2. Some vampire movie or maybe Highlander?
5,6,7 - ?
10.Legally Blonde
11. Love,Actually
12,13. ?
14. Monty Python & the Holy Grail
15. Beauty & the Beast
16. Ratatouille (sp?)
How'd I do?

Bridgete said...

Yay, someone finally got Ratatouille! =)

Okay, that's all the responding I'll let myself do until the rest of you get a chance to look.

Jenn said...

ARGH! The Departed...of course it was! I had to look it up because it was driving me insane lol. Haven't heard of a lot of these, will have to look into them & add to the queue!

Bridgete said...

Alright, the score so far:

Jenn - 1, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14, and 15 all correct.

Mom - 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, and 15 all correct.

Kate - 1, 4, 8, 10, 11, 14, 15, and 16 all correct. And while "some vampire movie" isn't quite the answer we're looking for, you're on the right track.

Still up for grabs:

2, 5 and 12.

Come on now. Ginger? Bree? Any thoughts? =)

Bree said...

2: Interview with a Vampire!

12: It's one of the pirates of the caribbean movies but I can't remember which one...

5 is completely lost on me.

kate said...

2. Interview with the Vampire, I think that was Armand's line?

Bridgete said...

Alright, I'll give Bree "one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies" for 12. It was the 1st one.

And yes, Interview with the Vampire is correct on 2!

Now, as for 5, I thought that one would stump you. Perhaps if you knew that the actual quote was in French?

Anyway, it's Amélie.
