An Epiphany with film quotes. [Nov. 23rd, 2008|01:07 pm]
randomposting
[mood |sicksick, still]
[music |Football]

1. Pick 20 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them for everyone to guess.
4. Fill in the film title once it's guessed.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.


*****1. This is a simple story... but not an easy one to tell. -- Guessed by: pixxiyestyx ( Life is Beautiful/La Vita Belle)
*****2. I'm sick of sleeping with these insipid Manhattan debutantes. Nothing shocks them anymore. -- Guessed by eclecticposting ( Cruel Intentions)
*****3. When I was young and successful, I was greedy and foolish, and now I'm left with no one. Wrinkled and alone. -- Guessed by: monicarnsg ( Love Actually. :) )
****4. Somewhere out there is a lady who I think will never be a nun. Auf Wiedersehen, darling. -- Guessed by: goob712 ( Sound of Music)
******5. Perhaps Margaret is right. Piracy is our only option. -- Guessed by: maudelynn ( Sense and Sensibility)
*****6. Ah, I thought we might hit this little snag. You seem to be laboring under the delusion that I am going to - what is the phrase? - come quietly. -- Guessed by: cornflkgirl ( Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix)
*****7. There were five curtain calls. I was an actor once, damn it. Now look at me. Look at me! I won't go out there and say that stupid line one more time. -- Guessed by: watergal ( Galaxy Quest)
*****8. You ungrateful little brat! Just look at everything you have. When I was your age, we... lived in a duplex! We didn't even have our own house! Guessed by: eclecticposting (American Beauty)
*** 9. In the spring of 1988, I returned to New Orleans, and as soon as I smelled the air, I knew I was home. It was rich, almost sweet, like the scent of jasmine and roses around our old courtyard. I walked the streets, savoring that long lost perfume. -- Guessed by: uber_squeaky ( Interview With The Vampire)
******10. No, My Lords, this is common sense. ... Which is a most English virtue. -- Guessed by: watergal (Elizabeth)
******11. But some things are not forgivable. Deliberate cruelty is not forgivable! It is the one unforgivable thing, in my opinion, and the one thing of which I have never, never been guilty. -- Guessed by: maudelynn ( A Streetcar Named Desire)
****12. Key members of Parliament. Key. The minds behind every military, diplomatic and covert operation in the galaxy, and you put them in a room with a psychic. -- Guessed by: watergal ( Serenity)
*****13. History is a commentary on the various and continuing incapabilities of men. What is history? History is women following behind with a bucket. -- Guessed by: monicarnsg
*****14. I am sorry. I thought you were planning to stay a while. But perhaps my sense of smell deceives me. -- Guessed by: maudelynn ( Mary Reilly)
*****15. You're a Mormon. Compared to you we all have a drinking problem. -- Guessed by: pixxiyestyx ( Burn After Reading)
*****16. I am altering the deal. Pray I don't alter it any further. -- Guessed by: watergal ( The Empire Strikes Back)
*****17.The Vice President in this case is like the Queen of England. You can't even buy airline tickets without talking to someone like me. Therfore, let me speak to The White House because I can assure you, I'm the one person who can make this all work out. -- Guessed by: silent_despair ( Air Force One)
*******18. You're quite a piece of work Mr Cockroach. We could learn a lesson from you, especially in light of recent events. I have an idea come this time tomorrow I'll be gone, but you'll still be trucking, running little roach errands. --- Guessed by: greenraven ( The Stand.)
*******19. You poor simple fools. Thinking you could defeat me, *me*! The Mistress of All Evil! Well, here's your precious princess! -- Guessed by goob712 ( Sleeping Beauty)
*******20. I could do that. I have some rope up here, but I do not think you would accept my help, since I am only waiting around to kill you. -- Guessed by uber_squeaky ( The Princess Bride)

Have at 'em. :)

(Updated to reflect all of your awesomeness. :) You got them all! That's awesome! Way to go guys.)

And please do these on yours if you're so inclined. They're a blast.

And here is Sweeney Todd's Epiphany set to Legos.

Film version, alas. Not Len Cariou or George Hearn.

*grumble* And I KNOW I know #1! I have the bad feeling there will be some serious self-kicking going on by the end of this.

Number 3- Love Actually- (Billy Mack)

13-History Boys! That's the quote I used! I love Frances de la Tour!

I would have gotten more, but I was too slow and others beat me to S&S, Galaxy Quest and HP&OOP

Re: -

This is what I was thinking too, only I could only come up with "That movie with Harrison Ford as the President on a plane with terrorists"...

It was pretty awesome. I'm waiting for them to release that game. LOL. They just did Indiana Jones, and Batman is either out or coming and my son is addicted to Lego Star Wars.

Lego Sweeney Todd is a video game I could go for. ;)

Seeing Street Car Name Desire reminded me of an incident at a work happy hour the other week...

Bossman ordered a Stella Artois and mock yelled the obligatory, "Stella!" We all just looked blankly at him b/c he does this every. single. time. And I for one was over it the first time. He took our blank stares as misunderstanding and explained that "it's from the 'Simpson's.'" I replied, "Actually, it's from _Street Car Named Desire_." I couldn't help myself.

The irony is that Stella Artois sponsor's movies on Turner Classic Movies.

Oooooh. *groooooooooooan*

Granted I love that Simpsons episode too, but most likely because I knew the source material so well. lol
