So Very Quotable

The following movie lines are so quotable that I bet you can identify the movie even though the line has nothing to do with the plot.

Here's how this is going to work: You get 5,000 fake points for every correct answer. If you can get the correct answer without looking it up or asking someone, you get double points. The person with the most fake points is the fake winner! Of course, if you know my favorite movies, you have a bit of an advantage. I'll put the answers up in a couple days--don't spoil it for the rest of us! (If you must prove your superiority in this game, I suppose you could email me your answers, but you would still only get fake points). Feel free to add your favorite quotes in the comments and then I can play too!

1. I want to buy eight hot dogs and eight hot dog buns to go with them. But no one sells eight hot dog buns. They only sell twelve hot dog buns. So I end up paying for four buns I don't need. So I am removing the superfluous buns.

2. Thank yer, ladies and gentlemen.

3. (singing) Harses, harses, harses, harses...

4. M-Maybe it's the power trying to come back on.

5. Matchy green! Matchy, matchy green!

6. Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.

7. Help! Help! I'm being repressed! Did you see him repressing me?

8. (1) I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed? (2)I think you can in Europe.

9. Fresh creamery butter.

10. (1) I know Kung Fu. (2)Show me.

11. I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability.

12. They're not gonna want to buy the whole friggin' ice cream truck when your handing out the popsicles for free!

13. (1) There's something the matter with this yogurt. (2) It's not yogurt, it's mayonnaise.

14. Franch bread, Franch fries, Franch dressing, and to drink, Peru!

15. You're never gonna be Jell-O!

16. I'm sorry I o-ogled you.

17. Nothing says romance like a kidnapped, injured woman!

18. I never told you, but you sound a little like Dr. Seuss when you're drunk.

19. Face it, girls, I'm older and I have more insurance.

20. But I really want a painting!

How sad is it that I only knew two or three of those? I really suck at movie trivia!

I'm not big on movie lines, but if you hadn't put in "I'm older and I have more insurance," I would have had to add it myself. It's one of my all-time favorites--maybe because I'm older and I have more insurance! Mom

I thought I'd do better than I did. Thanks for the trivia, I love stuff like that. Do you want to come to my house and play Scene it? Anyway, here's a few for you.

"Hansel, He's so hot right now."

"Teenagers, you give them an inch, they swim all over you."

"I was just checking the rotary...gerter...umm.. I'm retarded."

"I'm like so totally buggin'"

I got 9 right with no help. So I guess that means I got 90000 fake points. Aren't movie quizzes fun? It gives you such a picture into people's movie watching habits. BTW, "You're never gonna be Jell-O" is one of my favorite movies ever. Love it. Love the bag, love the shoes, love it.

So, shouldn't you get more points if you've never even seen the movie? Given the quotes that I recognize, I'm guessing I've seen less than half of these movies. (Hope I don't have to eat my words when the results are published!) Or maybe we can just get points for correctly identifying whether or not we've seen the movie, even if we don't identify the quote. :)

Then there's the old favorite "220 --221--whatever it takes."

Nielsen Mania said...

I'm surprised the movie with this wasn't among your favorites: "The only reason people are nice to me is because I have more money than God." That's just one of the little nuggets of gold in that movie... :D

Ok, I only got the "Clueless" one and had to look up all of the other quotes you gave me. I've never even seen Steel Magnolias!
