Thursday Movie Thirteen

Mom got this meme from Goodboy Norman. She thinks it is really cool. So she decided to do it. Here it goes.

1. Pick 13 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. No Googling or IMDb-ing. That’s cheating and that’s no fun.

Here they are. (Hint: Some of these are from Dad's favorite movies, because mom was having a hard time thinking of movies. Sheesh!)

1) You don't like her. My mother don't like her. She's a dog. And I'm a fat, ugly man. Well, all I know is I had a good time last night. I'm gonna have a good time tonight. If we have enough good times together, I'm gonna get down on my knees. I'm gonna beg that girl to marry me. If we make a party on New Year's, I got a date for that party. You don't like her? That's too bad. Marty by Sandy

2) Better get under cover, Sylvester. There's a storm blowin' up, a whopper. Just speakin' the vernacular of the peasantry The Wizard of Oz by Diva Kitty

3) Well, she turned me into a newt! Monty Python And The Holy Grail by One Eyed Jack

4) I don't know what all this trouble is about, but I'm sure it must be your fault. Star Wars (C3PO to R2D2) By Diva Kitty

5) Stern, if this factory ever produces a shell that can actually be fired, I'll be very unhappy. Schindler's List by Millie

6) This is a dude who, 700 years ago, totally ravaged China, and who, we were told, 2 hours ago, totally ravaged Oshman's Sporting Goods Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure by Millie

7) Oh, what large teeth you have. I mean white sparkly teeth, I know you probably hear this all the time from your food but you must bleach or something, 'cause that's one dazzling smile you got there and do I detect a hint of minty freshness? Shrek by Millie

8) You gonna do somethin'? Or are you just gonna stand there and bleed? Tombstone by Diva Kitty

9) Do you know why the number two hundred is so vitally descriptive to both you and me? It's your weight and my I.Q. Superman(the original) by Diva Kitty

10) I was the East Coast distributor of "involved." I ate it, drank it, and breathed it... Then they killed Martin, Bobby, and they elected Tricky Dick twice, and people like you must think I'm miserable because I'm not involved anymore. Well, I've got news for you. I spent all my misery years ago. I have no more pain for anything. I gave at the office. Field of Dreams by MommyO63

11) I remember when my daddy gave me that gun. He told me that I should never point it at anything in the house; and that he'd rather I'd shoot at tin cans in the backyard. But he said that sooner or later he supposed the temptation to go after birds would be too much, and that I could shoot all the blue jays I wanted - if I could hit 'em; but to remember it was a sin to kill a mockingbird. Well, I reckon because mockingbirds don't do anything but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat people's gardens, don't nest in the corncrib, they don't do one thing but just sing their hearts out for us. To Kill A Mockingbird by Sandy

12)You Americans, you're all the same. Always overdressing for the wrong occasions. Raiders of The Lost Ark, by Nevis

13) How do you explain school to a higher intelligence? ET by Goodboy Norman

Have fun, and remember, no cheating.

(If you are still stuck tomorrow, mom will give hints.)

This has been a lot of fun, start brushing up on your movies, because the next ones are gonna be harder!

Sandy said...

I'm guessing:
1 is from Marty
11 is from To Kill a Mockingbird

The Devil Dog said...

Wow, you guys are good. Mom figured #1 would be real hard.

Mickey's Musings said...

#5 Jason Alexander in the movie
The Man who Saves christmas,I think
Anyway,Mom & I liked that movie :)
I don't remember what his movie name was :o
Purrs Mickey

The Devil Dog said...

Sorry, Mickey. That's not it.

Mickey's Musings said...

We need to watch more movies!!!

Karen Jo said...

I don't know any of the quotes, but I know how to strike out the quotes. Once you are in edit mode, go to Edit HTML and write caret strike caret before the quote and caret /strike caret after the quote. I wrote "caret" because blogger wouldn't let me use the < symbols.

Millie said...

Mom says 3, 5 and 10 are all familiar. Is 5 from Schindler's List?

Would 6 be from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure?

Hmmm... Is 7 from Shrek?

And Mom sent your Mom an email about how to make a strike.

Toffee K. Ripple Fuzzypants & Feline American Angels said...

Darn. Millie got the one that Mom actually knew. Sigh.

Dragonheart, Merlin, Devi, and Chloe said...

Darn, the only one we knew for sure has already been guessed - Raiders of the Lost Ark. That's one of our mom's favourite movies - she's a huge Harrison Ford fan, even though he's old enough to be her father! She's very excited about the upcoming fourth Indiana Jones movie, and our dad is having fun teasing her about the fact that she's drooling over a man Harrison's age. ;)

Poppy Q said...

Number 5 is Schindlers List.

Daisy said...

I do not know any of those! Darn it.

Sandy said...

Roxy--I know Marty because I'm OLD. ;-)

Jack, Persephone, Tenzing and Lancelot said...

Number #3: "I got better" (Monty Python and the Holy Grail!

My daddy's making a nice lady with Great....tracts of land a scale and duck weights! Now my mommy wants one too!

Number #8 seems familiar, but we don't watch a lot of movies.


Monty Q. Kat said...

Drat! Jack got the one I knew!

Anonymous said...

13 Ferris Bueller's Day Off?

Teresa in OKC

Goodboy Norman Featherstone said...

Bill and Ted (#6) is the only one I can figure out!

To strike out, use the tag del in <> at the beginning and then /del in <> at the end of the strikeout. I can't put the del in the <>, or blogger will recognize the syntax and strike it out!

The Devil Dog said...

Wow, this is fun! I am amazed the newt one took so long.
And Millie sure is smart.
Good oing Poppy Q. Too bad Millie beat you too it.


Goodboy Norman Featherstone said...

Is #13 ET?

Anonymous said...

Is #10 The Transporter? I swear that it sounds like a Jason Statham line.....

MommyO63 said...

#10 is Field of Dreams. I don't remember when in the movie it was said, but James Earl Jones is the one who said it. (Terrence Mann)

The Devil Dog said...

Good job MommyO63. If you are ready for a hint or two, let me know and I will give you one or two. hee hee


Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

In the HTML tab, put a <S> at the beginning and </s> at the end and that will strike it out.

DK & The Fluffies said...

#4 Star Wars!
#8 Tombstone
#9 Superman

The Devil Dog said...

Still have #2 folks. And it's a movie that I guarantee everyone has watched. And I mean everyone.


Gemini and Ichiro said...

OH man we are so disappointed we didn't get to guess! We don't know what #2 is though!

Anonymous said...

DKM is a movie & a movie quote junkie.

Anonymous said...

Ok - we'll take a wild guess that #2 is the Wizard of Oz based on your hint.

Sandy said...

I'm guessing #2 is from a Sylvester and Tweety Bird cartoon, but not a clue which one

Anonymous said...

Looks like all but one are already guessed. And I am afraid I have no idea for #2. But it is a really cool T13!!
