Let's Play...

Its my two week break. I have time to do dumb things, so I stole this from Spiro....

  • Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
  • Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie (or quote them from memory).
  • Post them on your blog for everyone to guess.
  • Fill in the film title once it’s been guessed.
These are the players’ rules:
  • No Googling or using IMDb search functions (don’t cheat!).
  • Leave your answer(s) in the comments.
I pick the quotes; you guess without internet aid. If someone has answered it already, its in bold at the end.

Thank you to everyone that played. I am truly impressed at your movie knowledge !
You guys did so good. I am impressed!


1. “Maggie, when you grow up and are incredibly beautiful and intelligent and possess a certain sweetness that's... that's like a distant promise to the brave, to the worthy, could you please not beat to a pulp every miserable bastard that comes your way simply because you can? Could you not do that?” - One Fine Day (why no one guessed this sooner is shocking to me! George - my "favourite movie...c'mon...haha)

2. “Love is not a feeling….It's an ability” -Dan in Real Life

3. "She was in Spain, people do stupid things when they're in foreign countries"
"Yes, they buy leather jackets for much more than they're worth but they do NOT fall in love with fascist dictators!" - You've Got Mail


4. "Have you no consideration for my poor nerves"
"You mistake me, my dear. I have the utmost respect for your nerves. They've been my constant companion these twenty years" - Pride and Prejudice

5. "Love gives you wings. It makes you fly. I don't even call it love. I call it Geronimo. When you're in love, you'll jump right from the top of the Empire State and you won't care, screaming "Geronimo" the whole way down. I love her so bad, I just... whoa, she wrecks me. I'd die for her" - Conspiracy Theory

6. "Let's go get the shit kicked out of us by love" - Love Actually

7. "We need a witness to our lives. There's a billion people on the planet... I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you're promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things... all of it, all of the time, every day. You're saying 'Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness'." (I don't LOVE this movie, but this is one of the most lovely quotes) - Shall We Dance

8. "You don't have bones of glass. You can take life's knocks. If you let this chance pass, eventually, your heart will become as dry and brittle as my skeleton. So, go get him, for Pete's sake" -Amelie

9. "People say, You must have been the class clown. And I say, No, I wasn't. But I sat next to the class clown, and I studied him." - Waiting for Guffman

10. "You see? That is just like you. You say things like that, and you make it impossible for me to hate you." - When Harry Met Sally

11. "Sitting there, alone in a foreign country, far from my job and everyone I know, a feeling came over me. It was like remembering something I'd never known before or had always been waiting for, but I didn't know what. Maybe it was something I'd forgotten or something I've been missing all my life. All I can say is that I felt, at the same time, joy and sadness. But not too much sadness, because I felt alive. Yes, alive" - Paris Je'Taime

12. "I dunno, he must be a king"
"Why?"
"He hasn't got shit all over him" - Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail

13. "Little did he know. That means there's something he doesn't know, which means there's something you don't know, did you know that?" - Stranger Than Fiction

14. "In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass. That's the kind of person that's worth sticking with." -Juno

15. "Maybe that's all family really is. A group of people who miss the same imaginary place." -Garden State

So now that you have read them, and know what they are, post in the comment box saying which numbers are which movies.

I am interested in the fact that almost half my quotes were about love. I guess I will always be the perpetual English Major Romantic despite my cynicism....

4. pride and prejudice
8. amalie
9. waiting for guffman
10. bridget jones diary?

Spiro said...

ok, so i checked all of them... and i see that I got one wrong... the thing is, is that I JUST watched that film (#10) I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN IT!

also, you can do whatever you want. (you don't have to update it)

and, while you're on break, my life is crazy. school ends for me May 3rd, and I can't imagine having you down here before then. could you come that weekend?

Sharelle said...

as spiro noted, #10 IS NOT Bridget Jones Diary.

It is a Rom-Com though (obviously). you can do it!

Margaret said...

Okay I know we guessed this one last night, but I'm still claiming it because it's the only one I actually knew for sure when I heard it!

12: Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail

So either I'm really bad at movie quotes or we just watch very different movies. Oh well.

Bec Shulba said...

2. into the wild?

man, i want to cheat so i can have more answers.

Sharelle said...

#2 IS NOT "Into the Wild". Haven't even seen it yet.

Sorry Bec, but I am glad you played.

I know, I always just want to cheat too. Thats what google is for!

But don't do it! haha.

Sharelle I think you forgot one of your favourite movie quotes:

"I know you can be overwhelmed, and I know you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?"

"I think you can in Europe"

M-thiess said...

ps. I sent you another great movie quote via facebook

Brenda said...

2 - dan in real life
6 - love actually.

i've never been so proud of myself with my pop culture knowledge.

Sharelle said...

oh, i am so proud of all of you (brenda, shining with that pop culture knowledge, how far you have come! haha)

and everyone else, good work! i am truly proud.

now there are three left. you can do it! someone knows these, i am sure of it.

Alyssa said...

#10 When Harry Met Sally!

#15 is killing me... I totally know it but I can't think of the name. Is it Before Sunrise?

Bec Shulba said...

oops...just stumbled over #15 when looking for MY quotes. shoot...can i say it?

Sharelle said...

No, #15 is NOT "Before Sunrise".

Bec, lets see if anyone can get it first.
