Part of my I'm- avoiding-work ploy: name the movie (from these here lines)
Edited on Sun Jul-20-03 03:29 PM by ForrestGump
1. "It's a way we had over here with living with ourselves. We cut 'em in half with a machine gun and give 'em a Band-Aid. It was a lie. And the more I saw them, the more I hated lies. "

2. "Woof woof woof... That's my other dog imitation."

3. "This is a dude who, 700 years ago, totally ravaged China, and who we were told, two hours ago, totally ravaged Oshman's Sporting Goods."

4. "Nenge? Nenge Mboko? It is me, Lionel Joseph!"

5. "There are two types of people in this world: Those who like Neil Diamond, and those who don't. My ex-wife loves him."

6. "I have vision, and the rest of the world wears bifocals."

7. "I've seen things you've only seen in your nightmares. Things you can't even imagine. Things you can't even see. There are things that hunt you in the night. Then something screams. Then you hear them eating, and you hope to God that you're not dessert. Afraid? You don't even know what afraid is."

8. "It's all set. Noleen and her bayou queens. Just a little something for morale. And let me add, Sergeant, that these women are expecting some, uh, small unit military penetration."

9. "Women need a reason for having sex, men just need a place"

10. "It's the same things your whole life. "Clean up your room!", "Stand up straight!", "Pick up your feet!", "Take it like a man!", "Be nice to your sister!", "Don't mix beer and wine, ever!". Oh yeah, "Don't drive on the railroad track!""

11. "I was a lesbian once at school, but only for about fifteen minutes."

12. "Carmine said one boy - here are two!"

13. "I'd better not stand too close to you, people might think I'm part of the band. I'm joking, of course."

14. "Oh, be in it. The girls go wild over a uniform!"

15. "What does three up and three down mean to you, airman?"

16. "To be or not to be? Not to be."

17. "That man is trained to fight. You on the other hand, seem trained to drink."

18. "I know I-tey food when I hear it! It's all them 'eenie' foods... zucchini... and linguini... and fettuccine. I want some American food, dammit! I want French fries!"

19. "Just a little screw-up. But what the hee? Me got it under contwol. Fuggedaboudid."

20. "Now, how far do you have to move this box car so that the other train doesn't smash it? Quickly Brad, there are thousands of lives at stake... Brad, any answer..."

21. "You're wondering what a place like me is doing in a girl like this."

22. "Honey, what are you doing? These guys don't use doors. "

23. "We really shook the pillars of heaven, didn't we, Wang? "

24. "There's two kinds of people, them goin' somewhere and them goin' nowhere. And that's what's true."

25. "Is this a kissing book?"

26. "I said I didn't have much use for one. Didn't say I didn't know how to use it."

27. "How come these losers never live on the ground floor?"

28. "Well, I've always believed that if done properly, armed robbery doesn't have to be an unpleasant experience."

29. "Her dream had come true. She was a folk singer."

1. Whew! I have only one for sure and one guess...
9. "Women need a reason for having sex, men just need a place"

"When Harry Met Sally?"


21. "You're wondering what a place like me is doing in a girl like this."

Definitely "The Mummy"

The rest, either I've never even seen these films, or I'm senile

2. I don't know a single one, except 7
I remember hearing recently, but can't remember the movie.

Cripes. The others are not familiar at all (though #1 slightly rings a bell - a Vietnam movie, perhaps?)

man, these are hard.

9. Tridim took the only one I knew
25 - The Princess Bride

so I'll guess:

1. Apocolypse Now

13. Some Like it Hot

28. Thelma & Louise

26 sounds familiar, but I can't place it.

16. Tridim did it on purpose! I just know it.
Nop, #27's from a film that came out almost a decade earlier than "Pulp Fiction"

18. Well, I've been doing all right at it so far
But I really, really wanted to use the word 'ploy.' It's a funny word.

Ploy.

19. I only know 11 and 18
Number 11 is Kristin Scott Thomas in "Four Weddings and a Funeral."

Number 18 is Paul Dooley in "Breaking Away."


Enjoyable movies both, and wonderful performances from both actors.

20. Yes you do!
And yes, they were.

I watch both of these films every couple of hours, every day of my life, and I still enjoy them. Great casts, too. Paul Dooley really made "Breaking Away," for example, even though every other actor was superb and the story was great in itself. Classic.

29. Well, let me see..
#19 is definantly from Mickey Blue Eyes - I love Hugh Grant's attempt at speaking mob-english :D

#26 is from Quigley Down Under, with Tom Selleck (never had imagined him in a Western-type movie)

#27 is from Running Scared, another(!) spin-off of the classic white cop + black cop gets together and blow the city up, yet still manages to save the day :)
