Movie Meme

I'm shamelessly stealing this from HP and inviting all of you to play along!

Pick ten of your favorite movies, go to IMDB and find a quote from each, post the quotes, and make people guess.

Here we go!

  1. "It's time to separate the wheat from the chaff, the men from the boys, the awkwardly feminine from the possibly Canadian."
  2. "Okay, I'm pretty sure this isn't what Jesus had in mind when he said, "Help Dean." Look, don't be too harsh. I'm not the first person to ever get the message screwed up. Looking at her, it's like life is too amazing to be this random and meaningless consequence of the universe. There had to be a God... or something out there. "
  3. "What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn't he?"
  4. "They outrageous, them rules. Who live in this cider house? Who grindin' up those apples, pressin' that cider, cleanin' up all this mess? Who just plain live here, just breathin' in that vinegar? Well, someone who don't live here made those rules. Those rules ain't for us. We are supposed to make our own rules. And we do. Every single day."
  5. "I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside."
  6. "I will not hurt or harm you. Just give me back the board, Lance. It was a good board - and I like it. You know how hard it is to find a board you like."
  7. "On the good days, I feel like I get it, like it all makes sense. I can stay in the moment, I don't have to control everything in the future, and I believe everything is gonna work out fine. On the bad days I just want to grab the phone and start dialing numbers. I want to pull my hair and run through the streets screaming. But thanks to the people I've met in these rooms, like Margaret and Jim and Sarah, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna make it through today."
  8. "Anti-wrinkle cream there may be, but anti-fat-bastard cream there is not."
  9. "Every day I come by your house and I pick you up. And we go out. We have a few drinks, and a few laughs, and it's great. But you know what the best part of my day is? For about ten seconds, from when I pull up to the curb and when I get to your door, cause I think, maybe I'll get up there and I'll knock on the door and you won't be there. No goodbye. No see you later. No nothing. You just left. I don't know much, but I know that."
  10. "I'm hearing horses! Parry will be so pleased!"
If you do this at your place, let me know! And if you can help us out over at HP's place, that would be super!

1 - Dodgeball, I LOVE that movie!
5 - Girl, Interrupted
8 - The Full Monty
9 - Good Will Hunting - one of my all time favorites. My favorite quote from that movie is "Do you like apples? Yeah. Well I got her number. How do you liken them apples?"

That's all I got for now!

HP said...

2. Saved (use that one in sermons!)
3. LOTR (its hobbit talk)
4. Cider House Rules (wrote a pastoral pysch paper on that about race and gender)
9 - Good Will Hunting

6. Apocalypse Now --I think that's from Redux, not the regular version.

HP said...

jga is so smart!

Mary Beth said...

He is, in fact, smarter than the next five smartest people I know all put together. And he's obviously a bigger fan of Apocalypse Now than I am, because that is from Redux. Wow.

Sarah said...

3 is LOTR, 9 took me a while but is Good Will Hunting?

Awesome! I didn't know ANY of them! I'm afraid my movies will be too easy.
