screenwriters rule

A movie meme, as sprite lifted from one of her knitting folk.

The rules:

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
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. Looking them up is cheating, please don’t.

My quotes:

  1. “I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I’ve still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission. And I want to help you.” (2001: A Space Odyssey, guessed correctly by Willy)
  2. “Please sir, sir, can I have one to surge me sir, please sir?” (A Hard Day’s Night, correctly guessed by Adam)
  3. “Well, I wouldn’t argue that it wasn’t a no holds barred, adrenaline fueled thrill ride. But, there is no way you can perpetrate that amount of carnage and mayhem and not incur a considerable amount of paperwork.” (Hot Fuzz, correctly guessed by Adam)
  4. “I’m coming. That’s what I’m here for. That’s why you had me, Mama, to save you.”
  5. “I’m what you would call a teleological, existential atheist. I believe that there’s an intelligence to the universe, with the exception of certain parts of New Jersey.” (Sleeper, correctly guessed by Jenn)
  6. “This never happened to the other fellow.” (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, guessed correctly by Willy)
  7. “But you have to admit your cat’s dead! He’s deader than a doornail! That cat is colder than a well digger’s ass! Pretty hard to deny that isn’t it, Mr. Smartypants? Yep. Deceased. El morto. No more Mr. Kittycat.” (Rubin & Ed, correctly guessed by sprite)
  8. “What is the price of one piano compared to the terrible crime that’s been committed here?” (The Pink Panther Strikes Again, correctly guessed by Karen)
  9. “Some parts of my character weren’t what you’d call presidential.” (The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, correctly guessed by Adam)
  10. “We are so lucky. We are so lucky to have been raised amongst catalogs.” (Best In Show, correctly guessed by Willy)

Have fun!
