I'll Take Movie Quotes for $500, Alex

In an effort to provide you with high quality entertainment as well as intellectual stimulation, we here at the SC Contest Department proudly present:

(Drumroll please)


The following are a list of quotes from movies both old and new, both popular and eh, notsomuch. The first person to correctly identify all the movies will be crowned the winner and be presented with a $5 Starbucks gift card and our sincere wishes to get a life (and possibly a book if I find one I like enough to send it out). If no one correctly names all the movies, then the person with the closest number of correct answers wins. In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by the highly scientific method of eeny-meeny-miney-mo or perhaps me writing your names on pieces of paper and throwing them in the air and whichever lands with the name facing up wins. Or maybe just whichever piece of paper my daughter chooses to eat. (She eats paper. And she now eats dirt. Did I tell you? The child eats dirt. I do not serve dirt. I have never served dirt. I do not know where she got her taste for dirt. But that is another entry.)

Please list your answers with the corresponding numbers, like so:

1. Gone With the Wind
2. Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure

Because otherwise little minds like mine won’t be sure which quote you are referring to and I will get all confused and not award a winner and just take myself to Starbucks for a Mocha Lite Frappuccino and nannynanny on all y’all.

So get ready, get set....NAME THAT MOVIE!

1. Save the neck for me, Clark.

2. Do you guys even watch the show?

3. You’re really cute, but I can’t understand what you’re saying!

4. You cook good rabbit, pilgrim.

5. Hairy legs are your only link to reality.

6. This is pretty much the worst video ever made.

7. Your brain has a thick candy shell.

8. It’s like living with a six year old.

9. A man in a really nice camper wants to put our song on the radio.

10. Don’t they have dogs in Sweden?

11. Not now, Arctic Puffin!

12. I do not know something about cars, I know everything about cars.

13. I'm askin' ya with my brain.

14. You funny joke man!

Good luck, and may the Force be with you.

Crap, Missie! I'm an absolute movie fanatic (read- I have no life) and I don't know most of them!

That is the point, my dear (me laughing maniacally) BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

I will amend the rules to say that your chirrens can play, Robyn, but only if you agree NOT TO HELP THEM IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER AT ALL NOT EVEN ONCE.

It will give them something to do and keep them off the streets.

No.3 is from Finding Nemo (loved that scene) and No.6 is from Napolean Dynamite, and No. 8 is pounding on the doors of realization but I can't name it yet...can I add to my answers if I think of anymore?

P.S.: Good idea, and great obscure qutes!

All I knew is 1. Ah the Griswald I love them.

Yes, you can add to your answers as you think of them.

And just FYI, I was able to find all these info on all these quotes except 2 without much deep searching. The bonus one will be hard because it's from a deleted scene, and the one other one is from a movie released in 1968. Those are the only hints I am giving.

maybe I should preview my comments before posting.

"find all these info on all these"

ugh. need more coffee.

Well! I've earned my name! I don't know any of them except maybe #13 which I think is "My Cousin Vinny". If that quote wasn't in there, it should have been.
I think I read too much. Movies ain't my thing.
Do we get to stump you back? How about
"It's pretty, Sam."

Blogger Missie said...

UGH! I know that one, but can't think of it right off the top of my head. I will get back to you.

3:34 PM  
Blogger Jessica said...

Okay, let's see if I can do this.

2. Galaxy Quest (I quote that all the time)
3. Finding Nemo (I should use that one)
5. Return to Me (yet another quote I use)
6. Napoleon Dynamite (GOSH!)
9. That Thing You Do

Boy, that's it folks.

Good tries, everyone.

Keep guessin'!

Galaxy Quest...duh. how did i miss that one?

1. National Lampoon's Christmas
2. Galaxy Quest
3. Finding Nemo
4. Jeremiah Johnson
5. Return to Me
6. Napoleon Dynamite
7. Tommy Boy
8. Three Amigos
9. That Thing You Do
10. Overboard
11. Elf
12. Couldn't find that one.
13. Bug's Life
14. Sound's familiar, but couldn't find it.

But I cheated. Out the wazoo :-) And for this type of cheating, Yahoo works better than Google (Google ignores quotes, Yahoo doesn't).

Thursday's nearly over, so I figured I could put in my two cents now.

I kinda had to cheat, since I've only seen 4 of these (1, 2, 9, and 10). No "You shot my hair!" or "I'm not a witch, I'm your wife!" or "Russians don't take a dump without a plan, son." or "I love Italian, and so do you." Those 4 I can quote backwards and forwards :)

My daughter never did the dirt thing. Rocks, yes. Dirt, no. Probably because she has a binkie stuffed in her mouth half the time.

Enjoyed the quote hunt. What about a book one?

Wow! It looks like Nessili is in the lead. If anyone can name the two she missed, which are the hardest ones by far, then I will put your name in the running too.

I am a pregnant 14 year old employee of the family suffering from sleep apnea, a heart murmur, and warts on my pupils. Can I still play. The bonus question is a random guess and the other is an educated guess. If I'm not educated can I call it that? Uh, wait I did get throug the 3rd grade, is that educated?

1. National Lampoon's Christmas
2. Galaxy Quest
3. Finding Nemo
4. Jeremiah Johnson
5. Return to Me
6. Napoleon Dynamite
7. Tommy Boy
8. Three Amigos
9. That Thing You Do
10. Overboard
11. Elf
12. My Cousin Vinny

You are such a goober but we love you. You got 12 out of 14.

7:54 PM  
Blogger quirkychild said...

Aah! Just thought of something. No. 14. Is it from shanghai Noon or Shanghai Knights?

And number 12. Is it from Cars?

(I found most of the others on a search, but thought it would be cheating to put them down...)

I am still reeling from the goober comment. Don't ya know, that I am the sensitive type. Tell Rog that it the fishing season is leaving us. We need to fight back.
