Movie Quote Meme

Saw this interesting/amusing movie meme at Baboon Pirates. Rules:

1) Look up 15 of your favorite movies on IMDB.

2) Take a quote from each and post them for your readership to properly identify.

3) As your movie-savvy readers correctly identify the quotes’ cinematic origins in the comments, strike out the quotes and name the commenter who answered correctly.

4) If the commenter also identifies the name of the speaker (the character or the actor), he or she gets bonus points in the form of a link to his or her site.

I never tag anyone, so if you want to play, feel free. Here we go...

1. I think the end of the world just came for that bag of Fritos I had in my pants pocket.

2. Don't make me take off my sunglasses! (not particularly a favorite movie, but it is a favorite quote of mine)

3. I'm learning to live with a lot of things. Mad Rocket Scientist (Liam Neeson in Darkman)

4. No, I did not. I gave him life! PowerOfBabel (Jeffrey Combs in Re-Animator)

5. He used to bring beautiful women here... eat fine meals, drink fine wine, listen to music... but it always ended with screaming.

6. If you fail, we will be forced to help you destroy yourselves. Mad Rocket Scientist (one of the good aliens in Buckaroo Bonzai)

7. I have something to give you. I don't want it anymore. Thirty hours of pain all at once, all for you. Fighting for Liberty (Brandon Lee in The Crow)

8. I don't want no commies in my car. No Christians either. PowerOfBabel, El Capitan (Harry Dean Stanton in Repo Man)

9. We prefer the term, "connoisseurs." (pronounced con-nos-see-ays--this quote is not in imdb, I quoted it from memory)

10. And if we're not back by the president. El Capitan (Big Trouble in Little China--you can still get a link by naming the character)

11. There's a lot of things about me that you don't know anything about, Dottie. Things you wouldn't understand. Things you couldn't understand. Things you shouldn't understand. Walrilla (Pee Wee in Pee Wee's Big Adventure)

12. It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed...bred for its skills in magic. TechnoCrusader (Napoleon Dynamite in the eponymous movie)

13. Nothing to do but cut and run, huh? What else? What about the old American social custom of self-defense? If the police don't defend us, maybe we ought to do it ourselves. Mad Rocket Scientist (Charles Bronson/Paul Kersey in Death Wish)

14. No hat, no stick, no pipe, not even a pocket handkerchief. How can one survive? PowerOfBabel (Orson Bean in The Hobbit)

15. Gentlemen, please rest your sphincters. Mad Rocket Scientist (Harvey Corman in Blazing Saddles)

Whew! I had a hard time thinking of 15 favorite movies, since I'm not much of a movie-watcher. Although I'm sure later on I'll think of some other movies that would have fit the list better. Some of these should be easy, a few may be well nigh impossible (unless you cheat). Have fun.


  1. 12. Movie/Speaker: Napoleon Dynamite.

    Is 1. Big Trouble? Not sure about that one.

  2. You got #12, but #1 is not Big Trouble in Little China.

  3. Oh, I didn't mean Big Trouble in Little China, I was referring to Big Trouble, a Tim Allen movie written by Dave Barry.

  4. #7 spoken by Brandon Lee in The Crow?

    I'm so doing this one on the blog later. Love this time-wasting stuff!

  5. 11. PeeWee's Big Adventure/PeeWee

    Am I right? Huh? Huh?


  6. Knight: No it wasn't that, either.

  7. #4--Jeffrey Combs as Herbert West in Re-Animator.--It's Bryan.

  8. #14--Orson Bean as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit. It's Bryan.

  9. #8 Harry Dean Stanton as Bud in Repo Man. Bryan again.

  10. #2 - 'They Live' (???)

    #8 - 'Repo Man', but Bryan beat me to it...

    #10 - Big Trouble in Little China

  11. Number 2 is not "They Live," although I can see why you might guess that. That is one of my favorite movies, however. I just didn't think about it. I would have probably used the gum quote: "I came here to kick ass and chew gum, and I'm all out of gum."

  12. You know what Jack Burton always says... what the hell?


  13. 15 - Blazing Saddles (Hedley Lamar/Havey something)

    6 - Buckaroo Banzai (I don't recall the character, but it was one of the good aliens)

    3 - Darkman, spoken by Darkman/Liam Neeson

    Sheesh, does no one wach movies?
