Think of 15 of your favorite movies, go to IMDB and find quotes for each. Post the quotes. When someone guesses the movie, add the movie name and the person who got it right. (No fair using IMDB to find the answer.)
This was harder than I imagined it would be.Edit
: I'll be posting the answers tomorrow, but I'm excited that you guys have played along. Here are some hints for the other movies ('cause it's a Friday, and that's just the kind of crazy stuff I'd do). You might not get anything (and, my god, it's Friday!), but I enjoyed the exercise of giving hints.
1.) "You love the boy body and soul."
"Well, of course I do. What did you all think?"Additional hint
: It's right at the end of the movie. The woman met "the boy" in Italy.
2.) "You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons." low_delta
got it: Blazing Saddles
. It's after the new black sheriff, Bart (Cleavon Little), has come to town and decided to greet the town, and, aside from people avoiding him, a sweet old lady says, "Up yours, n****r." Bart is a bit depressed & Jim (Gene Wilder) is consoling him.
3.) "This definitely rates about a 9.0 on my weird-shit-o-meter." anterastilis
got the character right: Jay. Additional hint
: Jay has just seen a "woman" give birth that was unlike anything he'd seen before.
4.) "If science teaches us anything, it teaches us to accept our failures, as well as our successes. With quiet dignity and grace." coconuthead
was right: Young Frankenstein
. Doctor Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) says this after he's tried to bring life to "the monster" (Peter Boyle). Right after this, the doctor freaks out and tries to strangle Boyle on the re-animation table.
5.) "Well, which is it, young feller? You want I should freeze or get down on the ground? Mean to say, if'n I freeze, I can't rightly drop. And if'n I drop, I'm a-gonna be in motion." Raising Arizona
, with answer by coconuthead
. An old feller in the bank (or grange) says that as they're being robbed by Gale & Evelle Snoats (John Goodman & William Forsythe). By the way, I can hear the movie, but also the voice of wi_c, who has often stated that line as one he liked. I should see that dude SOON (and jujupees, and Z & M).
6.) "I'm in pain and I'm wet... and I'm still hysterical!" coconuthead
got it: The Producers
. Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) says this while he's freaking out in the beginning of the movie and Max Bialystok (Zero Mostel) is trying to persuade Leo to intentionally throw a Broadway flop. I just watched that scene again, by the way, to check on the lines, and kept laughing through it all. Oh, Gene. No one has used your genius like Mel Brooks in the late '60s/early 70s.
7.) "You can never go home again, Oatman... but I guess you can shop there."Additional hint
: A man going back for his high school reunion is calling his therapist in a convenience store in his old home town (which is also part of the movie title).
8.) "On any other day, that might seem strange." [which is actually a line that mda & I often say to each other.]Additional hint
: I don't think I can provide any hint that would make any sense to anyone who hasn't seen this goofy movie. Oh! At least you know, it's a goofy movie! Total cheeseball stuff from the late '90s. Aside from just the goofy lines and the top-notch cast, I've never seen a movie at our little theater that elicited such discussion in the bar afterward.
Oh, so with little chance that anyone would get this, I'll tell you that the protagonist says this while a Carmen Ghia is being pulled behind the plane he's on.
9.) "Rescue the damsel in distress, kill the bad guy, save the world."Additional hint
: The protagonist says this to an old (WWI) war hero before they have to go off to fight a supernatural creature.
10.) "He likes the town, paints toy soldiers, and he's gay." Additional hint
: Again: how to I talk about this w/out giving it away? The main character says this about a man in a little local diner, whose story he has heard... multiple times.
11.) "Now, that's a name I've not heard in a long time. A long time."Additional hint
: A man talking about a student that went bad.
12.) "I have a credit card.... Oh, but my father told me specifically
that I could only use it in case of an emergency."Additional hint
: A young woman says this in
an emergency with her friend-antagonist. He replies, "Well, maybe one will come up."
13.) "Never tell me the odds." Star Wars
(THE Star Wars, says the Gen-Xer), picked by low_delta
. Han Solo (Harrison Ford), of course, telling off C3PO. If I asked, mda could tell me what odds C3PO had just given to Han.
14.) "What good is a phone call if you can't speak?"Additional hint
: It takes place in a sterile questioning room, right after the protagonist asks for his phone call, and, right before the speaker gives those lines, gives the man the finger.
15.) "Yes, well, I imagine if it were fear, my eyes would be wider."Additional hint
: A staid doctor says this to a hardened captain of a ship.
