Can you guess?

Clare posted this on her blog awhile ago, and it was so much fun I thought that I just might take a stab at it. The only problem was skimping my list down to the ten you were supposed to have. I easily had double that to start off with! *sigh* I guess I'll just have to do this game again...

Here are the rules:

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

*And here are my quotes:

1. I heard what he said, you peroxide kissing bug! I'll pull that blonde hair out by its black roots!

2. I don't have to tell you the story. You all know it. Only two kinds of people are gonna stay on this beach: those that are already dead and those that are gonna die. Now get off your butts. You guys are the Fighting 29th.

3. Randolph, your father's warned you. If you make another bomb, you'll get spanked. ---Bye Bye Birdie, guessed by Meghan

4. Brother, I've seen all kinds of dishonesty in my day, but this little display takes the cake. Y'all come in here with your hearts bleedin' all over the floor about slum kids and injustice; you listen to some fairy tales; suddenly you start gettin' through to some of these old ladies... well, you're not getting through to me, I've had enough! WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU GUYS? You all know he's guilty. He's got to burn! You're letting him slip through our fingers.

5. That's a good idea. Four unidentifiable high school students lost their lives early this morning when their toy rocket exploded. ---October Sky, guessed by Kaila

6. Remember what you told me? "Women is like socks... you gotta change 'em regular."

7. I don't get you. I don't get your act at all, and I don't think you do either. I don't think you know what you're trying to do or how to go about it. I think you're stupid. Real stupid and real lucky. Last night you scraped by, just barely; but a man's dead on account of something you let get started even though you didn't start it.

8. Well, that makes it necessary for me to stop in again. Matthew 5:39. Don't bother looking it up, it's the bit about the other cheek. ---Guys and Dolls, guessed by Mandy

9. But Pop, I've seen things that I know are so wrong. Now how can I go back to school and keep my mind on... on things that are just in books, that-that-that aren't people living? ---On the Waterfront, guessed by Clare

10. Oh... one other thing. If you guys ever have kids and one of them when he's eight years old accidentally sets fire to the living room rug... go easy on him. ---Back to the Future, guessed by Kaila

#5-October Sky!

That's one of my fav lines in the whole movie!

Kaila said...

#10-It's from one of the Back to the Future movies. Love those,too!

#9 is from On the Waterfront, is it not?

#8 sounds so very, very familiar, but I'm having a difficult time placing it!

Oh, c'mon, Clare! You HAVE to know that one! It's one of my very favorite quotes...

Mandy said...

#8 -- is it Guys and Dolls???

I'm going to have to keep thinking. Some of them sound so familiar, especially #7.

Jen said...

my brother is so good with quotes I'm sure he would know them all (he worked as a teenager at a video store) but I'm awful at it! How embarassing I don't know any that are left. Great post

emme said...

Oh, don't feel bad, Jen!☺ Most of the quotes left are from classic movies (some more unknown), so if they aren't your cup of tea, you probably wouldn't have ever heard of them...

Thanks for reading!

Number three is from the original Bye Bye Birdie from 1963 (the better version in my opinion, anyway) Ann Margaret is Kim, Dick Van Dyke is Albert and Janet Leigh is Rosie. Love that movie!!
