Has this been done before? Really? Huh.

I had this great idea to do a post where I would list some lines from the movies and you guys would guess which films they were from. Turns out, somebody's already done that! Well damn! Oh, well. I put one together anyway so I could keep you kids marginally entertained some day when I have no time or motivation to post. Apparently that day has come. I hope my list is somewhat less movie-geekish than some of the others, or maybe just less geekish, period. There should be one or two in there that everyone can at least take a stab at, so give it a rip. No cheating!

1. I’m the player to be named later.

2. Shut the fuck up, Donny.

3. The defense department regrets to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid.

4. There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

5. When I was a little boy, my mother used to sing me a song. It went like this: "Life is short, life is shit, and soon it will be over."

6. Hail to the king, baby.

7. 1970 Pontiac Firebird. The car I've always wanted and now I have it. I rule!

8. Sucking all the marrow out of life doesn't mean choking on the bone.

9. You must chill! You must chill!

10. You're gonna eat lightnin' and you're gonna crap thunder!

11. I'm thinkin' of something orange. Something orange. Give up? It's an orange.

12. Hey guys. Oh, Big Gulps huh? All right! Well, see ya later.

13. Son, you got a panty on your head.

14. Greetings Starfighter. You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the Frontier against Xur and the Ko-dan Armada.

#2 The Big Lebowski
#9 Say Anything
#12 Dumb and Dumber- I think?

Man, I sucked at these.

nancypearlwannabe said...

Oh, and #3 might be Top Gun. Maybe.

The Modern Gal said...

7. American Beauty
13. Raising Arizona (one of my favorites)

Noelle said...

Holy crap, I was just going to say what Modern Gal said.

Great, I'm too late AGAIN, and now I don't know any others. When will this meme die?

#6: Army of Darkness
#8: Dead Poets Society
#12: Dumb and Dumber, definitely. we repeated that line all through college.
#14: The Last Starfighter

Chris said...

Hm. I'm disappointed with myself. I'll make some guesses (some good ones, some totally out of my ass):

#2 The Big Lebowski
#8 Ferris Bueller's Day Off (??no idea why??)
#9 Office Space
#11 Tommy Boy (?)
#13 Raising Arizona
#14 Starfighter (I know the movie, but can't recall the title)

surviving myself said...

#2 is Big Lebowksi.

Other than that, I could just steal everyone else's picks from their comments, but I won't.

em said...

People already guessed all the ones I knew.

Allie said...

Yeah, I only would have gotten 2 and 9.

Stefanie said...

Man, I suck at these, apparently.

#8 Dead Poets Society
#9 Say Anything

And that's all I got, unfortunately.

Matt said...

#1 is a Bull Durham I think...I know its a costner flick...

Jacob said...

You know what, several of those are familiar and I know I've seen the movies, but unlike music, I have trouble connecting quotes to the movie. I suck at it, in fact. I actually should have beaten Courtney on Chris's quiz but I completely blanked on Nirvana. I could finish the lyrics to that verse but for some reason couldn't get the voice to come up with the words. The only ones I didn't guess besides that one were the songs I'd never once even heard.

I don't even have that much to go with here. There's not a single quote in that list that I could even put into context, much less identify the title.

Kiala said...

#4 Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

I knew one!

Rachel said...

All I know is that #7 is from American Beauty. I absolutely LOVE that part. I still periodically pump my fist and say, "I rule!" just for the hell of it.

TravelingEm said...

I knew #3 and on my little sheet where I was writing my answers even knew that it was Goose who says it. Along with #6 knowing it was Ash. All hail Bruce Campbell. I think I'm now in love with CK for being the only other one to know it.

Mickey said...

In retrospect, I guess it wasn't so easy. Damnit. Sorry.

Still, pretty good showing.

Courtney said...

I already know all of these, so I'll just say hi to all you Waitress readers. Hi.

Julie said...

I always think of myself as knowing movies fairly well, but one of my friends sent me an email with a bunch of still shots from movies. You got the costumes & background, but the actors were removed. It was really, really hard.
