Sweetpea and her friends sprite and randomduck ran this meme over the past couple of days and I LOVE me some movie quotes, so I wanted to try it. Here are the rules:
- Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
- Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
- Post them here for everyone to guess.
- Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
- Looking them up is cheating, please don’t.
Here are my quotes:
- I’m poor, black, I might even be ugly, but dear God, I’m here. I’m here.
What are you looking at? You’re laborers; you should be laboring. That’s what you get for not having an education.(Chris got it – my ALL TIME favorite movie – “Real Genius”) How ’bout a nice greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray?(Sweetpea got it first – it’s “Weird Science”) You can’t scare her, she’s sleeping with Prince Valium tonight.(Shannon nabbed this one – “Beetlejuice”) You know, it says here that by the time the average American is fifty, he has five pounds of undigested red meat in his bowels(Marlene got it – “Beverly Hills Cop”) OK! I’ll talk! In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max’s toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play.(Shannon wins another – “Goonies”) It’s Lieutenant Hurwitz. Severe shell-shock. Thinks he’s Ethel Merman.(Chris takes this one – “Airplane!”)
- God was singing through this little man to all the world, unstoppable, making my defeat more bitter with every passing bar.
Oh, and remember: next Friday… is Hawaiian shirt day. So, you know, if you want to, go ahead and wear a Hawaiian shirt and jeans.(Sweetpea tentatively guessed it right first, and Chris confirmed it…”Office Space”)
- Seven schools in seven states and the only thing different is my locker combination.
Wow! It seems I haven’t seen a decent movie since 1985…
Oh, sheesh… I’ve probably heard you say that pork sandwich quote a thousand times. Is it “Weird Science”?
And I think #9 is “Office Space” but I wouldn’t stake my life to it.
#9 is definitely “Office Space.” #7 is from “Airplane!” And I’m pretty damn sure that #2 is “Real Genius.”
#5 is Beverly Hills Cop
I also feel like I should know the pork sandwich one…but I can’t think of it.
Oh, and it’s so nice to see your name on here, Chris! All the way from the Land of the Rising Sun…
#4 – Beetlejuice
#6 – The Goonies
#10 – DAMMIT! I know that one…it’s on the tip of my tongue! Arrrrrgggg.
I’m noticing that most of the comedies got recognized right away – but my 2 non-comedies have not.
Here’s a hint: #10 is not only from one of my favorite movies, but also from one of my favorite actors (although I have a hard time looking at him these days, since he reminds me of someone I used to know…)
I KNEW IT! I had to cheat and look up #10 because it was driving me insane (before I saw your hint)…I should have gone with my first hunch.
How come no one knows that one? One of my all-time faves.
Alright – here are the remaining answers:
#1 – The Color Purple
#8 – Amadeus
#10 – Heathers
