The movie quote meme

Gacked from just about everyone:

1. Pick 10-20 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Fill in the film title once it's guessed.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.

01) The nicest thing about feeling happy is that you think you'll never be unhappy again.

02) Sometimes I wish I had a pill to make people disappear.

03) This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this. I am not your King.

04) My dear young man, don't take it too hard. Your work is ingenious. It's quality work. And there are simply too many notes, that's all. Just cut a few and it will be perfect. - speakr2customrs, Amadeus

05) You be careful out among the English.

06) I've already wasted my whole life. I want to tell you with my last breath that I have always loved you. I would rather be a ghost, drifting by your side as a condemned soul, than enter heaven without you. Because of your love, I will never be a lonely spirit.

07) Me? I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It's the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they're going to do something incredibly... stupid. - xwingace, Pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black Pearl

08) I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever's in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences... But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much. Just as you are. - river_soul, Bridget Jones's Diary

09) It's SHITE being Scottish! We're the lowest of the low. The scum of the fucking Earth! The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization. Some hate the English. I don't. They're just wankers. We, on the other hand, are COLONIZED by wankers. Can't even find a decent culture to be colonized BY. We're ruled by effete assholes. It's a SHITE state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and ALL the fresh air in the world won't make any fucking difference! - skylar_muc, Trainspotting

10) Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you.

11) When I sit, you sit. When I kneel, you kneel. Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera! - mommanerd, The King and I.

12) We are not the members of a democracy, Father. We are the members of an order.

13) I've never been alone with a man before, even with my dress on. With my dress off, it's MOST unusual.

14) One thing I'll say for him, Jesus is cool. - binsoup, Jesus Christ Superstar

15) Do you not get it, lads? The Irish are the blacks of Europe. And Dubliners are the blacks of Ireland. And the Northside Dubliners are the blacks of Dublin. So say it once, say it loud: I'm black and I'm proud. - speakr2customrs, The Commitments

16) She was so sweet, I could eat her brains like jam! - river_soul, Legend

17) Let me tell you what 'Like a Virgin' is about. It's all about a girl who digs a guy with a big dick. The entire song. It's a metaphor for big dicks. - skylar_muc, Reservoir Dogs

18) Life in a box is better than no life at all, I expect. You'd have a chance, at least. You could lie there thinking, "Well. At least I'm not dead.'

19) A man who tells lies, like me, merely hides the truth. But a man who tells half-lies has forgotten where he put it.

20) You Americans, you're all the same. Always overdressing for the wrong occasions. - elen_ancalima, Raiders of the Lost Ark

20 = Raiders of the Lost Ark

I don't know 9, but now I'm really curious to see what movie that is ...
Feb. 23rd, 2008 10:50 pm (UTC)

Well, obviously I can't tell you what film it is, but I will say this: it's a Scottish film ;-)
Feb. 23rd, 2008 10:59 pm (UTC)
Indeed :-P. I'll keep an eye out to see who guesses it.

It's funny - when you're choosing the quotes they often sound really easy, but if you see them taken out of context they can be quite tricky. I'm almost certain I know no. 7 ... maybe it'll still come to me :-)
Feb. 23rd, 2008 11:23 pm (UTC)
I'm sure you'll go "Of course it was!" when someone gets it.
Feb. 23rd, 2008 11:26 pm (UTC)
AHHHFG! Of course! :-P
Feb. 23rd, 2008 10:52 pm (UTC)
07 is Pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black Pearl.

But that's the only one I can place. Some of the others sound familiar and/or interesting, but I can't place them.

Feb. 23rd, 2008 10:55 pm (UTC)

I'm having the same difficulty over on other people's journals. Some of the quotes ring a bell, but only very distantly.
Feb. 23rd, 2008 11:09 pm (UTC)
I just Googled 14. I really should have know that one, given that at some point I did know about half the thing off by heart. (Not saying exactly what it is, because I didn't fairly guess...)

Feb. 23rd, 2008 11:21 pm (UTC)
Only half? There was a time I could quote it verbatim, from beginning to end -- but then, at our school, we had to sit through it every Easter.
Feb. 23rd, 2008 11:38 pm (UTC)
I never had to sit through it at school. I had to discover what the fuss was all about for myself. I get the impression the film was in some influential circles (I went to a catholic school) rather frowned upon as frivolous, the story better contemplated in its printed form. Though that may also have depended on the priests, of course. I've known the current parish priest to (incorrectly) quote from it or refer to it. But he's a lot more modern than the lot we had fifteen or so years ago.

(I'm not actually all that religious, but I still have occasion to go to church now and then)
Feb. 23rd, 2008 11:48 pm (UTC)
Isn't it funny -- then, I hated it because I was made to watch it so many times. Now, I take it off the shelf to watch it voluntarily quite often (well, once or twice a year, at least)!

8. Bridget Jones's Diary

16. Legend. Before Tom Cruise was crazy.

3 sounds really, really familiar but I can't place it!
Feb. 23rd, 2008 11:11 pm (UTC)
You're right of course, on nos. 8 & 16. As to no. 3, it's from a recent picture. I myself have only just seen it, on dvd.
Feb. 23rd, 2008 11:09 pm (UTC)
04) is 'Amadeus'.

15) is (I think) 'The Commitments'.

Feb. 23rd, 2008 11:11 pm (UTC)
You are absolutely correct on both counts!

9. trainspotting
17. reservoir dogs

this has been all over my flist, and I usually rock the guess the lyric/the quote quizzes, but your quotes have been the hardest to figure out for me by faaaaaaaar. even the ones that have been guessed already I wouldn't have recogised lol(eta: except for bridget jones, haha)

That's right!

11 - The King and I
14 - Jesus Christ Superstar (the musical)

oh wow! both movies from when i was a kid. i used to be able to lipsync through JC.

Feb. 24th, 2008 08:43 am (UTC)
mommanerd just beat you to no. 11, but you got the most difficult one: no. 14 is is a line from Jesus Christ Superstar!

As I said to xwingace earlier, it's a film I was made to watch every Easter in school. I hated it then, but I love it now, and in my mind's eye, Jesus will always look like Ted Neeley.
Feb. 24th, 2008 07:01 pm (UTC)
the numbers i like best are (1) Judas' musical soliloquy at the start of the film (2) Herod's vaudevillesque number, and the (3)high priests' (Caiaphas and Annas) plotting which is why i remember the line you quoted.
Feb. 24th, 2008 09:56 pm (UTC)
Good choices, all...but I believe my favourite bit is where Jesus is alone on the mountain and screams his submission to the will of God, tell Him he'll die, and challenges Him to watch him die.
Feb. 24th, 2008 10:06 am (UTC)
Is 6 Truly, Madly, Deeply?
Feb. 24th, 2008 10:29 am (UTC)
No, sorry, it's not...but I can see why you would think that!
