The film quotes game
« on: 08 Aug 2005, 13:05 »

It's been a long while since we had the film quotes game, so I thought I would resurrect it. The rules are very simple, but I strongly recommend following them so things don't get out of hand. They are:

1) A quote from any movie is posted. If the quote is obscure, a hint can be added so other people can get it.

2) The first person who correctly guesses the quote can post a movie quote of his own. Don't post a quote unless you have successfully answered the already submitted quote. (That's how things got out of hand the last time.)

3) Don't answer your own quote, and no more than one quote up and running at a time. (Ditto.)

Here's a sample of how it's supposed to work.

"I picked you for this assignment not only because of your superb fighting ability but also because in the unlikely event you are captured; the Germans would assume from your attire that they had captured a wretched peasant and immediatly send you on your way."

Ooh, ooh, I know! It's A Bridge Too Far. Here's mine:
"I'm going crazy. I'm standing here, solidly, on my own two hands, going crazy."
Hint: Katherine Hepburn.


You have your quote; now get going.

Donnie Darko.

To continue with the theme started by Chupones (and because it's the first one I can think of):

Character 1: "It's better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all."
Character 2: "Try it."

Can't promise it's verbatim, but it's close enough to be guessable.

I think that's from Equilibrium, though I'm not completely certain. I could go watch the scene it's probably from but that'd be cheating, right?

That looks like it might have possibly been a bit tough so, I'm giving you two more quotes from the same movie.

"I hope I give you the shits, you fucking wimp."

"We are now up against live, hostile targets. So, if Little Red Riding Hood should show up with a bazooka and a bad attitude, I expect you to chin the bitch."

Hopefully that will make it a bit easier, so these two and the one above are all from the same movie.

Good luck :)

Ok, so my name is totally Preston, and Empire Records is clearly one of my favorite comedies. That just sort of freaked me out seeing that all in one post.

That's Rowdy Roddy Piper, speaking in They Live.

It could have been a much better movie except they sacrificed a plot that could have made sense for action scenes that don't. For example....

Let's say you got your hands on a crate that someone else has risked his life for. All you find in there are dozens of sunglasses, which makes no sense. So you take one and discard the rest. But when you try on the shades, suddenly, you can see the evil alien overlords and the subliminal messages they have been putting out to control you. Do you....

a) immediately go back and retrieve the crate? Or....
b) Rush into the nearest bank, pull out a big gun, say your stupid line about bubble gum, and go back for the crate only a few days later, only to discover the garbageman has come by?

If you answered (a), chances are you will survive the alien invasion. If you answered (b), there is no hope for you.

The fact that the movie says that violence is the only possible solution shows that this film is emitting a few subliminal messages of its own. I'd be curious to see what They Live would reveal if watched with They Live-type sunglasses.

And now for the next quote in the film quote game. Tthe last time I did a quote, nobody got it for a full week. So this time I'll give you TWO BIG HINTS.

1) You already know I like the film classics.
2) It's famous as the FIRST-EVER line spoken in a film by a certain WELL-KNOWN celebrity.

"Gif me a visky, ginger ale on the side, and don' be stingy, baby."

Ooops, someone else got the answer while I was busy typing. So I'll withdraw my quote and let you guess the corporal one.

Mine was Greta Garbo, In Anna Christie (1930). She had been famous as a silent film star, and when talkies came along, a lot of money was riding on whether people would like her voice. They did.
