movie meme

I've been seeing a lot of bloggers experiment with this one - it's been fun to see the variety of choices, even when when I haven't seen any of the films in question.

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. GUESSERS: NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.


1) "Oh Abigail, Abigail, I have such a desire to knock heads together!"
-1776 guessed by Harriet

2) "That wasn't the prettiest corner I've ever seen Mr. Liddel, but certainly the bravest." -Chariots of Fire guessed by Jim and yes, you're exactly right, it should be "quarter" not "corner"

3) "I know. You know I know. I know you know I know. We both know Henry knows, and Henry knows we know it. We're a knowlegable family."
-The Lion in Winter Joe, bonus for knowing extra lines!

4) "Did you know she has flowers in her panties?"
-The Gods Must be Crazy guessed by Jeanne (I can't believe that she didn't know #7!)

5) "a little home for two or three or four or more in loveland"

6) "Perhaps Margaret is right. Perhaps piracy is our only option. What exactly is swabbing?"
-Sense and Sensibility Brain Girl - I didn't know you read my blog! I am honored.

7) "I'm a damsel - I'm in distress - I can handle it. Have a nice day!"
- Hercules guessed by Foxy - Drew, we saw this together!!!!

8) "Games? I've seen better organized riots."
-Chariots of Fire also by Jim. OK, I admit it, I couldn't decide which line I liked better so I used them both. Hey, it's my blog and it's a brilliant movie.

9) "Green - no, blue - aaaah!"
Monty Python and the Holy Grail guess by Harriet, some of smartest silly humor ever

10) "one sister has gone with a brother before, but two sisters makes the entire family look ridiculous."
Meet Me in St Louis Harriet, how did you get this one??!

I'm guessing 1 is 1776. And I know that 9 is Monty Python and the Holy Grail (or whatever the actual title is) and #10 is Meet Me in St. Louis, all excellent selections! I've been loving this meme for reminders of movies I haven't seen in a while!

#6! Sense and Sensibility (Hugh Grant = Adorable.)

Joe said...

#3, from the eminently quotable movie which brought you the exchange:

"He's got a knife!"
"Of course he's got a knife. He's always got a knife. We've all got knives. It's 1183 and we're barbarians."

The Lion in Winter.

4. Did you know she has flowers in her panties?
from one of the funniest movies ever, The Gods Must Be Crazy

Jeanne said...

#7 sounded like one I should know, and it bugged me so much I looked it up.

permanentquivive said...

Grrr- I was sure that 5 was Singin' in the Rain, but I looked it up and it wasn't there.

Foxy said...

#7 is from Hercules :D

Jim Wetzel said...

Numbers 2 and 8 are both from "Chariots of Fire." And, by the way, I think #2 is incorrect, in part. Not "the prettiest corner," but "the prettiest quarter" (as in 1/4 mile).

Drewster said...

I am with Jeanne on #7 and I am horribly ashamed I didn't know it right off!

harriet said...

Lemming, I've seen Meet Me In St. Louis about a gazillion times and I have most of the dialogue memorized!

Drewster said...

I KNOW we saw it together. That is why I am so shamefully embarrassed. :<

sumo said...

I'm pretty sure #9 should be, "Blue - no, yel-aaaah!"
