quote this

Because it's Thursday and all, you're going to indulge me and play this little Name That Movie game*. Really, you are.

E-mail me your answers, and for all of you who get at least one movie correct, I'll throw your name into a pot or a shoe or something and send the winner a prize that he/she may or may not want. How's that for motivation?

{Tip: And if you get all of them correct, I will totally know that you cheated and googled the quotes, so at least mess up one, okay?}

Here we go.

1. No, of course I like you. It's because I like you I don't want to be with you. It's a complicated emotion.

I don't want to play the gender card right now. You want to play a card, let's play the "let's not die" card.

I shall call him squishy, and he shall be mine, and he shall be my squishy!

This is not whale. You're speaking like, upset stomach.

Finding Nemo


2. A: Our love fern! You let it die!
B: No, honey, it's just sleeping.

Ooh, call him in the middle of the night and tell him everything you had to eat that day.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days


3. If I had known I was gonna meet the president I would've worn a tie. Look at me, I look like a schliemiel.

Yes, yes. Yes. Without the "oops." Thataway.

John Lennon. Smart man. Shot in the back. Very sad.

Independence Day


4. Oh, look. A golden-throated small-winged warbler. Just one more for exotic bird bingo. I am loving this.

He's doing his own theme music? Big, dumb and tone deaf. I am so glad I was unconscious for all of this.

Let's take a look-see. Hate your hair. Not likely. Yikes. Yikes. Yikes. And, let me guess, you have a great personality.

The Emperor's New Groove


5. You wasted $150,000 on an education you coulda got for a buck fifty in late charges at the public library.

Sometimes I wish I had never met you. Because then I could go to sleep at night not knowing there was someone like you out there.

Every day I come by your house and I pick you up. And we go out. We have a few drinks, and a few laughs, and it's great. But you know what the best part of my day is? For about ten seconds, from when I pull up to the curb and when I get to your door, cause I think, maybe I'll get up there and I'll knock on the door and you won't be there. No goodbye. No see you later. No nothing. You just left. I don't know much, but I know that.

Good Will Hunting


6. I need to talk to you. Every time I call you're either taking a bath, washing your hair or you're out of the country. That was a good one, by the way.

We sit in the visiting section, Kenneth. At our own school.

Can't Buy Me Love


7. Me? I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you.

I carried a watermelon.

Where is my beige iridescent lipstick?

Dirty Dancing


8. I can say without fear of contradiction, that under no circumstances, and at no time has that current administration expended any public monies whatsoever for the purchase of the fluffy flower print toilet paper.

Hey, can somebody please pass the ketchup?

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes


9. No, No, I want to destroy this man's life, career, everything. I want revenge. Now on a sins scale how bad is that? Can I Hail Mary my way out of that?

That's only funny at Camp Birchwood in the tent at three in the morning and it's raining and my leg is the pole. That's the only time that's funny.

Hi, leave a message after the beep. If you want to send me a fax then buy me a fax machine.

Runaway Bride


10. Do we know... Mo?

Like I could tip a cow BY MYSELF!

Look at you, you have a baby! In a bar.

Sweet Home Alabama


11. Oh, that's terrific! It will be nice working with proper villains again.

You have lovely hands. Do you moisturize?

They say taupe is very soothing.

Ocean's Eleven


12. Anybody want a peanut?

I just want you to feel you're doing well. I hate for people to die embarrassed.

That does put a damper on our relationship.

The Princess Bride


13. Oh, really? When I buy a new book, I read the last page first. That way, in case I die before I finish, I know how it ends. That, my friend, is a dark side.

Trust me, she looked weird. Her legs looked heavy. Really, she must be retaining water.

I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts.

When Harry Met Sally

i'm hiding under a rock, or rather under a pile of chenille.. I knew absolutely NONE of these... holding up the big "L" on my forehead!!

Seeker said...

I caved.

I googled.

I couldn't stand it.

Consequently, I disqualify myself.

Excellent choices in memorable movie quotes, though.

Looking forward to seeing who the biggest quote buff is!
