Movie Madness

My friend brave astronaut put up a fun little quiz on his blog. Well, I only think it's fun because I got 'em all--but only because he has a real penchant for Chevy Chase movies. Knowing stupid movie quotes, that's what 13 years in L.A. does to you. Here's what it's done to me. Some of my favorite comedies listed by quote. You can see how you do when I post the answers next week.

1. “I got a meeting with the Bobs in a couple of minutes.”

2. “Boy, oh boy, am I a boy.”

3. "Cromwell will not come till sunset, and her lips grew strangely white... as she breathed the husky whisper, curfew must not a-ring tonight."

4. “Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.”

5. “Say now, wait a minute. Let's get this straightened out right now. If you're nursing any silly notion that I'm interested in you, forget it. You're just a headline to me.”

6. “Round tones, round tones. Now, let me hear you read your line.”
“And I cayn't stan’ 'im.”

7. “This is the Voice of Doom calling. Your days are numbered, to the seventh son of the seventh son.”

8. “Do me a favor, for your own good, put your name in your books right now before they get mixed up and you won't know whose is whose. 'Cause someday, believe it or not, you'll go 15 rounds over who's gonna get this coffee table. This stupid, wagon wheel, Roy Rogers, garage sale COFFEE TABLE.”

9. “Look, I've boned a lot of fat chicks in my time, sure. But, as far back as I can remember, I've never fornicated anybody.”

10. “Nihilists! Fuck me. I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.”

11. "You know, once I was thinking of quitting when I was diagnosed with brain, lung, and testicular cancer all at the same time. But with the love and support of my friends and family, I got back on the bike and won the Tour de France five times in a row. But I'm sure you have a good reason to quit. So what are you dying of that's keeping you from the finals?"
"Right now it feels a little bit like... shame."

12. "If you get tired, pull over!"
"If you get hungry, eat something!"

13. "What is this? A center for ants? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read... if they can't even fit inside the building?"

14. "I'm not even supposed to be here. I'm just 'Crewman Number Six.' I'm expendable. I'm the guy in the episode who dies to prove how serious the situation is. I've gotta get outta here."

15. "It's just like Hamlet said, 'To thine own self be true.'"
"Hamlet didn't say that. "
"I think I remember Hamlet accurately. "
"Well, I remember Mel Gibson accurately, and he didn't say that. That Polonius guy did."

Damn, I'm usually really good with movie quotes, but I only know 1, 8, 13, and 15.

I knew I was really bad at movie quotes, but apparently I'm actually utterly hopeless.

Adrienne said...

I'm usually good with them, too - but, without a little googling, I can only get 10 (which is one of my fave movies EVER), 14 and 8.

Good LORD! I'll have to get back to you . . .

OK, after consulting with Mrs. Brave Astronaut, we have correctly identified 4, 6, 8, 11, and 14.

I googled the rest. Damn, you're good.
