Who said that?

So a really fun meme seems to be making the rounds. I enjoyed writing this post as much as I've enjoyed playing the game on others' blogs.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie (or get them out of your capacious memory).
3. Post them on your blog for everyone to guess.
4. Bold it when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. Looking them up is cheating, please don’t.

A: How could it take you five minutes to cook your grits when it takes the entire grit-eating world 20 minutes?
B: Um... I'm a fast cook, I guess.
A: [across beside the jury] What? I'm sorry I was over there. Did you just say you were a fast cook? Are we to believe that boiling water soaks into a grit faster in your kitchen than any place on the face of the earth?
B: I don't know.
A: Perhaps the laws of physics cease to exist on your stove. Were these magic grits? Did you buy them from the same guy who sold Jack his beanstalk beans?

MY COUSIN VINNY (Nice going, Melanie M!)

I'd be the worst possible Godfather. I'd probably drop her on her head at her christening. I'd forget all her birthdays until she was 18. Then I'd take her out and get her drunk. And, let's face it, quite possibly try and shag her.

ABOUT A BOY (WifeMomKnitter)


A: Where are you giants from?
B: We're from New York.
C: All hail the New York Giants!

MADAGASCAR (CostumeChick)

A: What was that ruckus?
B: Uh, what ruckus?
A: I was just in my office and I heard a ruckus.
C: Could you describe the ruckus, sir?



A: It's part of a trilogy, a musical trilogy I'm working on in D minor which is the saddest of all keys, I find. People weep instantly when they hear it, and I don't know why.
B: It's very nice.
A: You know, just simple lines intertwining, you know, very much like - I'm really influenced by Mozart and Bach, and it's sort of in between those, really. It's like a Mach piece, really. It's sort of...
B: What do you call this?
A: Well, this piece is called "Lick My Love Pump".

THIS IS SPINAL TAP (also CostumeChick)

A: So what's this big news, then?
B: [excited] We've been given our parts in the nativity play. And I'm the lobster.
A: The lobster?
B: Yeah!
A: In the nativity play?
B: [beaming] Yeah, *first* lobster.
A: There was more than one lobster present at the birth of Jesus?
B: Duh.

LOVE, ACTUALLY (WifeMomKnitter)


Oh, he's very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude.

FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF (CostumeChick is on a roll!)

Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn't we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? 'Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we'd all be put out in K.P.



A: What are these? [holds up a bag with 3 lemons]
B: You asked for lemons. What my baby wants my baby gets.
A: There are 3 lemons. I asked for 12. Baby wanted 12.

THE BREAKUP (KnelleyBelley)


A: Well hell, it ain't square one! Ain't nobody gonna pick up three filthy, unshaved hitch-hikers, and one of them a know-it-all that can't keep his trap shut.
B: Pete, the personal rancor reflected in that remark I don't intend to dignify with comment. But I would like to address your general attitude of hopeless negativism. Consider the lilies of the goddamn field or... hell! Take at look at Delmar here as your paradigm of hope.

O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU? (CostumeChick rocks!)

#3 is Madagascar (I think.)
#5 - This is Spinal Tap
#7 - Ferris Bueller's Day Off
#10 - Oh Brother Where art Thou

I think I may watch too many movies. Or, I have an endless supply of useless knowledge.
