Movie Quote Meme

1. Pick 15 of your favorite movies. (No particular order)
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/using IMDb search or other search functions.
6. Go Ahead, do your know you want to! (Assume this is me tagging everyone who reads this)

These actually represent my top 15 favorite movies:

1. "I remember wrenching the steering wheel to the right and slapping my foot against the brake petal. I wasn't the driver anymore. The bus was like this huge wave about to break over us. Bear Otto, the Lambston kids, the Hamiltons, the Prescotts, the teenaged boys and girls from Bartlett Hill Road, Pete, Suzy, Laura, Rick, Sean Walker, Nicole Burnell, Billy Ansel's twins, Jessica and Mason... all the children of my town."

2. "You promised me that everything was gonna be OK, remember? I fucked that sleaze bag for you, then I put myself through fucking hell for you?"

3. "Up men! And to your posts! And let no man forget today, that you are from Old Virginia!"

4. "That's right. I've killed women and children. I've killed just about everything that walks or crawled at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill, for what you did to Ned."

5. "Silencio."

6. "Dad gave me this. Fifth birthday. He said, 'Childhood's over the moment you know you're gonna die.'"

7. "How do you document real life, when real life's getting more like fiction each day?"

8. "My island!"

9. "Listen, you fuckers, you screwheads. Here is a man who would not take it anymore. A man who stood up against the scum, the cunts, the dogs, the filth, the shit. Here is a man who stood up."

10. "Three thousand years of beautiful tradition, from Moses to Sandy Koufax, you're GODDAMN RIGHT I'M LIVING IN THE FUCKING PAST!"

11. "The only worry you got is dying. And if that happens you won't know about it anyway."

12. "You can't just apologize, Johann. You left your battle station at a critical moment. Also, you disobeyed my command."

13. "If this man should fall, who will lift the flag and carry on?"

14. "You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig."

15. "Now go home and get your fuckin' shinebox."


  1. 1. The Sweet Hereafter

    8. Braveheart

    10. The Big Lebowski

    13. Glory

    14. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

    Damn, I would have thought I'd know more than that.

  2. Good job. I figured that everyone would get The Big Lebowski, but I didn't think anyone would get The Sweet Hereafter.

  3. I can thank Kris for having seen it. -)

  4. Have you seen it yet? If not, you should. Fantastic. Although Emily will disagree with you. We should all get together one day and watch our favorite movies. That would be fun.

  5. Yes... As I said in my previous comment. -)

  6. Man, I'm horrible at movie quotes. I didn't know one.

  7. 1 The Sweet Hereafter
    2 Requiem for a Dream
    3 Gettysburg
    4 Unforgiven
    5 Mulholland Drive
    8 Braveheart
    10 The Big Lebowski
    11 Serenity
    12 Das Boot
    13 Glory

    I know I know more of them but I can't think of what movies they are from and I'm 100% sure about all of my answers.

  8. I meant to say I'm not 100% sure about my answers.

  9. Oh yeah,I was thinking that 11 was Serenity, but I wasn't sure.

    Verification Word: booth

  10. I'll post the answers later this afternoon, so check back around 3 to see if you're right.
