The Movie Meme

Instructions: Look up 15 of your favorite films on IMDb and take a quote from each. List them below. When someone guesses the quote correctly, cross it off the list. Leave a comment with your answers. And NO CHEATING.

1. Whereas what we have here? A bunch of fig-eaters wearing towels on their heads, trying to find reverse in a Soviet tank. This is not a worthy adversary.
vfh (The Big Lebowski)
2. Son, you'd be amazed at the hundreds of satisfied students I've matriculated over the last 50 years! vfh (The Flim Flam Man)

3. There's not a lot of money in revenge. (tata, The Princess Bride)

4. Lord, we cleared this land. We plowed it, sowed it, and harvest it. We cook the harvest. It wouldn't be here and we wouldn't be eating it if we hadn't done it all ourselves. We worked dog-bone hard for every crumb and morsel, but we thank you Lord just the same for the food we're about to eat, amen.
(Blackdog, Shennandoah)
5. Collingwood and the rest. And they'll keep on living as long as the regiment lives. The pay is thirteen dollars a month; their diet: beans and hay. Maybe horsemeat before this campaign is over. Fight over cards or rotgut whiskey, but share the last drop in their canteens. The faces may change... the names... but they're there: they're the regiment... the regular army... now and fifty years from now. They're better men than they used to be. Thursday did that. He made it a command to be proud of.
vfh (Fort Apache)
6. Everything happens to me. Now I'm shot by a child.
(Blackdog, True Grit)
7. I remember every detail. The Germans wore gray, you wore blue.
(Blackdog, Casablanca)
8. Gentlemen, Chicolini here may talk like an idiot, and look like an idiot, but don't let that fool you: he really is an idiot. I implore you, send him back to his father and brothers, who are waiting for him with open arms in the penitentiary. I suggest that we give him ten years in Leavenworth, or eleven years in Twelveworth. (oddjob, Duck Soup)

9. You see that fella in the red sweather over there? His name's Donnie McCoy. Works a few of the protection rackets for Cunnaro when he's waiting for something better to happen. Donnie and I have known each other since we were six. Take a good look at that face, Floyd. Because if he ever finds out I can be beat by one lousy grifter, I'll have to kill him and every other hood who wants to muscle in on my Chicago operation.
vfh (The Sting)
10. Love. You can know all the math in the 'Verse, but take a boat in the air you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells ya she's hurtin' 'fore she keens. Makes her home. Carolyn (Serenity)

11. Scorn and defiance, slight regard, contempt and any thing that may not misbecome the mighty sender, doth he prize you at. Thus says my king.
Carolyn (Henry V either version)

12. Somebody once wrote: "Hell is the impossibility of reason." That's what this place feels like. Hell. vfh (Platoon)

13. No two things on Earth are equal or have an equal chance. Bit a leaf, not a tree. There's many a man worse than me, and some better... But I don't think race or country matters a damn. What matters, Colonel... Is justice. Which is why I'm here. I'll be treated as I deserve, not as my father deserved. I'm Kilrain... And I damn all gentlemen. There is only one aristocracy... And that is right here.
vfh (Gettysburg)
14. A little? And you a writer? Tsk, tsk, tsk. I thought all writers drank to excess and beat their wives. You know, at one time I think I secretly wanted to be a writer.
vfh (Philadelphia Story)
15. He's a disco-dancing, Oscar Wilde reading, Streissand ticket holding friend of Dorothy, know what I'm saying?
(Krista, Clueless)

Have at it troops.

Are you trying to bring out my inner valley girl? It is bad enough that I just got back from a road trip and my accent is back with a vengeance.

I would not have pegged you as a clueless fan :)

Oh man. You picked hard and obscure ones. I have been addicted to watching movies this past winter and I must not have been paying attention although I think #2 is Flim Flam Man.

You're not kidding Liz, this was pretty tough. I bet the Minstrel is smiling though.

Too tough for me to even attempt, but some of the quotes were wonderful picks!

The Princess Bride is one I only watch alone, unless there's a dust cloud outside I can blame for the watery eyes! ;)

The Big Lebowski is rife with worthy quotations. I liked the idea of this post. The Platoon quote is very worthy.
