Thursday Thirteen Movie Quotes Meme

There may not be snow where Fat Eric lives, but there is still snow HERE, and that doesn't count. Fat Eric, you're out of the When When contest!
I got this from Roxy last week.

1. Pick 13 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess in the comments.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put in who guessed it and the movie.
5. No Googling or IMDb-ing. That’s cheating and that’s no fun.

Mom says some of these -should- be pretty easy. And DKM, please leave some for other people to guess!

Here they are:

1. You'd be surprised about what you can get, if you ask for it the right way. - Out of Sight - by Diva Kitty Mom

2. American millionaires must be all quite mad. Perhaps it's something they put in the ink when they print the money. ~ How to Steal a Million ~

3. Maybe it's something else. Maybe you can't even describe it. Maybe you only know it when it's gone. Maybe it's like there's a whole piece of you that's missing, too. - Pleasantville - by Tybalt (after a hint)

4. You mean, you'll put down your rock and I'll put down my sword, and we'll try and kill each other like civilized people? - The Princess Bride - by The Meezers

5. I don't know. It's a mystery. - Shakespeare in Love - by Fat Eric

6. Certainty of death. Small chance of success. What are we waiting for? - The Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King - by Ghost

7. I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you. - The Last of the Mohicans - by Roxy

8. It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage. - Raiders of the Lost Ark - by Parker

9. All I did was kiss a girl! - Silverado - by Catherine on Eastlake

10. I always pass on good advice. It is the only sensible thing to do with it. - An Ideal Husband - by Diva Kitty Mom

11. Try not to kill my dogs. - Emma (1996) - by Roxy

12. People don't know how to love. They bite rather than kiss. They slap rather than stroke. Maybe it's because they recognize how easy it is for love to go bad, to become suddenly impossible... unworkable, an exercise of futility. So they avoid it and seek solace in angst, and fear, and aggression, which are always there and readily available. ~ The Upside of Anger ~

13. I can't ask him what he's doing. I'm supposed to tell him what he's doing. I ask him what he's doing and I'm gonna look like an idiot. - The Terminal - by Diva Kitty Mom

Update at 9:00 PM
OK! Great Job Everybody! Time for some hints:

# 2 is from a movie made in the 60's with Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole. It's one of Mom's favorites.

# 12 is from a recent movie with Kevin Costner. It didn't get a lot of "play" but Mom liked it a lot.

# 13 is from a Tom Hanks movie.

None of these actors said the quotes featured. Mom says, "Google at will!"

Update at 11:00 PM:
Mom says next time she won't choose quotes that are so obscure. Good thing. I think it's more fun when everybody recognizes the quotes. Thanks for playing!


I tag Diva Kitty Mom to do this next week, since she's a big movie buff.

Mommy only knows #8 - it's Harrison Ford in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Right???
She's not good at stuff like this!

The Devil Dog said...

#11 is from Emma.
Mom suggested #9, so she can't answer it and #7 is from Last of The Mohicans.

The Meezers said...

ok we think number 4 is from The Princess Bride

Catherine on Eastlake said...

#9 is from Silverado. Kevin Costner says that. :)

Fat Eric said...

Drat, I didn't win on the When When contest!

Great idea with the movie quiz. Mum loves movies. Number 5 is from "Shakespeare in Love".

Ghost said...

I think #6 is from The Lord of the Rings - Return of the King

Monty Q. Kat said...

Dang. MomBean doesn't know any of them. :(

Daisy said...

Gosh, I do not know any of those either. I am very bad at this game.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Those are great movie quotes! :) Some of those are our favourite movies: Raiders, Return of the King, Princess Bride, Shakespeare in Love. Great choices!

Is #3 from Spiderman?

Millie said...

Dragonheart, no, but the same actor spoke those words in a different movie.

Tybalt said...

I knew The Princess Bride quote, but the Meezers got there first!

But . . . after that clue from you for DH . . . is #3 from Toby Maguire in "Pleasantville?" It sounds familiar but I'm not certain.

PB & J said...

Oh darn, we're too late for the ones we knew and the others are tough! This is fun!

DK & The Fluffies said...

#10 - Ideal Husband
#1 - Out of Sight

George and Rupert! Love them both

DK & The Fluffies said...

Based on the clue we'll say 13 is Terminal. I've not seen that one yet.

Millie said...

# 13 -IS- from The Terminal! Very Good DKM!

Camie's Kitties said...

Mom says we wouldn't have gotten any of those. We have only seen a couple of those movies.
