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:

  1. Pick 10 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. Looking them up is cheating, please don’t.

Here are my quotes:

  1. I’m poor, black, I might even be ugly, but dear God, I’m here. I’m here.
  2. 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”)
  3. How ’bout a nice greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray? (Sweetpea got it first – it’s “Weird Science”)
  4. You can’t scare her, she’s sleeping with Prince Valium tonight.  (Shannon nabbed this one – “Beetlejuice”)
  5. 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”)
  6. 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”)
  7. It’s Lieutenant Hurwitz. Severe shell-shock. Thinks he’s Ethel Merman. (Chris takes this one – “Airplane!”)
  8. God was singing through this little man to all the world, unstoppable, making my defeat more bitter with every passing bar.
  9. 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”)
  10. 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…
