yours and mine -- procrastination rules!


meme time

i stole this meme from VBG, so enjoy.

The rules:

-- Pick 10 (or so) of your favorite movies.
-- Find, remember, or look up a quote from each movie.
-- Post them here for everyone to guess.
-- Strike it out (not really sure yet how i'll mark them, but i'll mark them)
-- NO googling or cheating by doing an online search. Cheaters never prosper.
-- Commenters should share the fun and only guess one movie.

so, here they are, give it a go, and we'll see what happens.

edit: as of right now (3:16 am central time on 4-12-08), all movies not yet identified are getting an extra quote. that includes the two people have said they know but haven't indentified yet.

addendum to edit: so, after 8 days with the second quotes, there's still one movie left. so, what shall i do? give you a third quote. that better do the trick because if i have to hunt down a forth quote, we're having a movie night for sure. so, will it break the tie for the lead, or will someone else get it and keep the tie alive?

1. “Geology is the study of pressure and time. That's all it takes really, pressure, and time. That, and a big god-damned poster.”

“That's where I want to live the rest of my life. A warm place with no memory.”

Danger came back to say that this one is The Shawshank Redemption.

2. “Salsa shark! We're gonna need a bigger boat! Man goes into cage, cage goes into salsa. Shark's in the salsa. Our shark.”

the apathetic one snagged this one from Clerks. and it's a good thing, too. i didn't have a second quote prepared for this one since two people had said they knew it.

3. “I figure fuck it, while I'm at it why not just shoot my buddy, take his job, give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe and join the National Guard? I could be elected president.”

“Look, you're my best friend, so don't take this the wrong way. In twenty years, if you're still livin' here, comin' over to my house to watch the Patriots games, still workin' construction, I'll fuckin' kill you. That's not a threat. Now, that's a fact. I'll fuckin' kill you.”

danger worked out that these are from Good Will Hunting, tying the apathethic one. sorry, bibliophile, that means you're out of the prize running.

4. “That house is not fit to live in. No one's been able to live in it. It doesn't want people.”

the bibliophile picked this one as being from The Changeling. if you don't know what that is, go find it and watch it. it's from like 1980 and has goerge c. scott in it. it's great. i think she only knew it because she knew i loved the movie enough one of them had to be from it.

5. “I felt his presence. He's come for me. He can feel when I'm near. That's why I have to go. As long as I stay, I'm endangering the group and our mission. I have to face him.”

the bass commando recognized this from Return of the Jedi. that is my favorite star wars movie, proving that i really am a girl. in my experience guys prefer empire, while chicks tend to favor jedi.

6. “I insist that all women who have hysterics in my drawing room call me by my Christian name.”

“Sometimes you have to be a high-riding bitch to survive. Sometimes being a bitch is all a woman has to hold onto.”

“Husbands die every day, -------. Why... one is probably dying right now while you're sitting here weeping. They die... and leave their wives their money. I should know, shouldn't I? Sometimes they're driving home from their mistress' apartment and their brakes suddenly fail.”
(note: the dashes replace a name, a very important name, which is why i edited it out)

woo freaking hoo! someone (the bibliophile) finally nailed this one as Dolores Claiborne, even if she can't spell it. so, the tie stands and i gotta figure out how to devide the spoils.

7. “Well, ain't this place a geographical oddity. Two weeks from everywhere!”

VBG knew that this is from 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?

8. “The LePetomane Thru-Way? Now what'll that asshole think of next? Does anybody have a dime? Somebody has to go back and get a shitload of dimes.”

“No, thank you. Fifteen is my limit on schnitzengruben.”

the apathetic one worked out that this is from Blazing Saddles. she's really showing everyone else up.

9. “Hey! Don't say shit like that to me. People can hear you.”

danger recognized this one from 10 Things I Hate About You.

10. "All gay men have track lightin'. And all gay men are named Mark, Rick, or Steve."

the apathetic one pegged this one as Steel Magnolias. not the person i was expecting to get that one, but what the hell.
