Go Ahead, Make My Day!

Just for fun, and maybe to get our minds off, um , all this other unpleasantness...
Here's a movie quote quiz - all but one from movies I have seen within the past oh, 18 months or so.
NO CHEATING!

  1. Are you crazy? The fall will kill you! Wiz
  2. Take your stinking hands off me, you dirty ape! Bee
  3. You mean, you'll put down your rock, and I'll put down my sword, and we'll try to kill each other like civilized people? Bee
  4. What we have here, is a failure to communicate. Bee
  5. You are evil, and must be destroyed. Wiz
  6. I'm trying to use the phone! Jill
  7. First learn stand, then learn fly. Nature's rule, not mine. Bee
  8. You're gonna need a bigger boat. Paul
  9. Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no stinking badges. Paul
  10. Tell them to go out there with all they've got and win just one for the Gipper! Lauren (and Paul, although Lauren gets credit because it's the movie I actually saw.)
  11. They're here! Bee
  12. I wanna be just like you. I figure all I need is a lobotomy and some tights. Paul
  13. Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it. Kristen
  14. Humor. It is a difficult concept. It is not logical. Wiz
  15. Is this a game, or is it real? What's the difference? Wiz
  16. We have so much time and so little to do. Strike that. Reverse it. Paul (sorry Melissa, it was the first one...)
  17. It's our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. Amy
  18. It's good to be heckling again. It's good to be doing anything again. Lauren
  19. This is the most tragical thing that has ever happened to me. NancyFace
  20. Missed it by THAT much! Paul
Ready, go!~
(Rather than scoring every answer, I'm just gonna put the first person to get it by the quote)

Number 13 is from my all time favorite movie: Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I knew that one right away. I recognize several others, but can't quite put the movie and quote together.

Bee said...

Man you have some great tastes in movies! ;o)

A couple of others are familiar but I can't place 'em.

Lauren said...

10. Rudy
18. Muppet Christmas Carole

and is 8. Pirates of the Caribbean?

Paul said...

4) Stripes
8) Jaws
9) The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
10) Knute Rockne: All American (and later Rudy)
11) Poltergeist
12) Breakfast Club
13) Ferris Bueller
15) Matrix
16) Willy Wonka?
20) I assume Get Smart, although I haven't seen it yet.

Melissa said...

The only one I know for sure (that doesn't already have a name next to it) is 16 - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory... Paul said Willy Wonka... which I guess is right too... can we share it? :)

Paul said...

I really, really want to know number one. It's on the tip of my brain.

And since this is a contest, I think I should win number ten. Mine way predates Lauren's. Rudy is actually quoting Knute Rockne (played by Pat O' Brien) in Knute Rockne All-American.

Lauren is clearly cheating.

I'm just saying. She's like that.

Paul said...

AH, but Melissa...

The original movie was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The remake was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The original was one of my favorite movies as a kid.

I'm sounding like a movie snob, right? I'm a bad person.

But Lauren still cheats. It's commonly known.

Amy Peterson said...

17- Harry Potter
But I am not telling if I cheated ; )

Jill said...

6. Pee Wee's big adventure. It's an all time favorite in our house.
12. Blades of glory?
16. Willie Wonka and the Chocolate factory
19. The little rascals?
20. Get Smart. The new movie, and also "The nude bomb" the first Get Smart movie from about 20 years ago.

"Vern" said...

I got like 3 out of 20, but what I really want to know is why in the world would you have seen Pee Wee's Big Adventure in the last 18 months? I'm very concerned.

Heather said...

Wow, looks like I missed out...

JustRandi said...

You guys are doing great! Still 5 to go,though!

JustRandi said...

Now, for extra credit!!

Which is the ONE movie on the list that I haven't seen in the past 18 months.
Hint: it's already been identified.

Kimberly said...

Brilliant post idea...I see I came too late!

Janell said...

All the ones I recognized have already been identified :( I'm so stealing this idea later - it's a great one!

The Wiz said...

No5 - Steel Magnolias.
No14 - Star Trek II - Wrath of Khan. (My brother can quote the entire thing, and often will, for no reason.)
No15 - War Games, I think. They are showing it again and making a sequel, so it would make sense for you to be watching it right about now.
No1 - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid? (I just saw that line on an AFI special, but I've never seen the movie.)

AND....I'm going to guess you haven't see PeeWee lately.

JustRandi said...

Yea! All but one identified. And the really funny thing is that #19 is the FIRST one I would have gotten!

And Pee Wee is not the answer to the bonus round question!

Jill said...

Is # 18 the bonus question?

Bee said...

That was fun!

Nancy Face said...

#19-Anne of Green Gables!

If I'm wrong, it's okay...I only knew two of the others on the list!

Lippy said...

I learned a few things, but the most glaring one is that I really, REALLY need to see more movies.

Or get a better memory. You don't want to know how poorly I did :)

Yvonne said...

Wow--I stink at this--I knew a few, but most of them I couldn't remember. Fun game, though.
