Movie Quote Answers

A little earlier than I said, but I have things to do this afternoon.

Good job to Thomas and Emily for figuring out 10 of the 15 (you each got five). I'm handing out congrats to the first person to correctly guess it. And Emily, you were correct in your answers, with one notable exception:

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." Congrats Thomas: The Sweet Hereafter

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?" Congrats Emily: Requiem for a Dream

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

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." Congrats Emily: Unforgiven

5. "Silencio." Congrats Emily: Mulholland Drive

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

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

8. "My island!" Congrats Thomas: Braveheart

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." Taxi Driver

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

11. "The only worry you got is dying. And if that happens you won't know about it anyway." Platoon. But good guess with Serenity

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

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

14. "You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig." Congrats Thomas: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

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

  1. I knew I had heard all of them before. I can't believe I didn't get the rent one. I was trying so hard to remember which movie that was from. I can't believe I've seen all of those movies. I forget about them sometimes.
