Assignment: 15 Film Quotes – Updated with Answers
via Darkneuro, etc.
Pick 15 favorite movies…
Go to IMDB and find a quote for each movie…
Post the representative quotes (NO google, no searches. Please. Takes away the love)…
Fill in the film title once it’s guessed. (In my case, I am hotlinking the films once they are answered properly.)
For my participant’s benefit, I’ve taken a couple of extra steps. A) I’ve kept them to a single speaker, and avoided dialogues entirely, and B) I have tried to make them fairly quotable and not simple random lines.
Note that a couple of these come from movies that have been re-made. Indicate which version for extra credit. . .
2. “A New Mexico woman was named Final Arbiter of Taste & Justice today, ending God’s lengthy search for someone to straighten this country out. Eileen Harriet Palglace will have final say on every known subject, including who should be put to death, what clothes everyone should wear, what movies suck, and whether bald men who grow ponytails should still get laid.”
3. “Ah. Well… I attended Juilliard… I’m a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I’ve seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT… NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU’RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY… NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I’m qualified?”
4. “He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, 50 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought. I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.”
11. “I picked you for the job, not because I think you’re so darn smart, but because I thought you were a shade less dumb than the rest of the outfit. Guess I was wrong. You’re not smarter, Walter… you’re just a little taller.”
