Movie Quote Muh-leem

Over at The Mind Wobbles, Hilda posted a fun movie quote muh-leem...and it's interactive so you get to play along!

As a blog mistress, my job was to pick ten of my favourite movies, go to IMDB to find a representative quote from each, post the quotes here, and strike out the quotes when readers guess them correctly.

Here's my list. If you know which movies they're from, write a comment and I'll give you credit. And hey, no cheating by using Google! That wouldn't be any fun. Do this the olde-fashioned way with your brain. No calculators either.

1. You still don't understand what you're dealing with, do you? Perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility. (Anonymous)

2. He does the killing, I do the grave digging. You don't do anything. You're just a cook! (Anonymous)

3. I came into this game for the action, the excitement. Go anywhere, travel light, get in, get out, wherever there's trouble, a man alone. Now they got the whole country sectioned off, you can't make a move without a form. (Anonymous)

4. I am a professional. I have been in this business a long time. Now if I don't want to do a show, it's not because I got stage fright. It's because some creature from beyond doesn't want me to do the show! Now gangway! (Morgan James)

5. Men keep taking advantage of me. I always realize it when it's too late. Look how the Arab world treated me. I sure didn't deserve that. (Morgan James)

6. And to think that in some countries these dogs are eaten. (Anonymous)

7. It's a hard world for little things. (Anonymous)

8. You oughta feel proud that three sailors from the United States Navy got off the ship for one day, and what did they do? Were they thirsty for hard liquor? No. They were thirsty for culture. Were they running after girls? No. They came running to the museum to see your dinosaur. (Anonymous)

9. And what charming underclothes you both have. But here. Put these on. They'll make you feel less... vulnerable. It's not often we receive visitors here, let alone offer them... hospitality. (Anonymous)

10. I looked for you in my closet tonight. (Anonymous)

I tried to pick movies that people have actually seen to, you know, make this fair.

1. Pretty obvious - Alien.
2. Also obvious - Texas Chainsaw Massacre
3. Oh c'mon - Brazil!
4. Ummm- Superbad? Just a guess.
5. No idea.
6. Best In Show - a classic.
7. Night of the Hunter
8. On the Town - really.
9. Rocky Horror Picture Show - you had to know this would be spotted!
10. Blue Velvet - as if anyone wouldn't know

Wow, I sure stumped you on...errr...numbers four and five!

There were some deliberate give-aways there, but I have a feeling you're a better than average quote-spotter.

Well, you've got my curiosity up - but I'll understand if you want to wait to clarify regarding four and five.

Still - "Don't forget about me while I'm gone"

Muffy St. Bernard said...

I'll wait and see if somebody else nabs them by tomorrow. They aren't obscure (though, perhaps, slightly more obscure than the others).

WOW, when I read thru them the only one I knew was #9 and that was already taken. Wow, you're good, these are hard. Mine will be up later but they are super easy. Maybe I should find more obscure quotes...hmmmm....? Somthin ta think 'bout.

Candela: Men keep taking advantage of me. I always realize it when it's too late. Look how the Arab world treated me. I sure didn't deserve that.

quote 4 is from Phantom of the Paradise, a 1974 musical, horror-thriller film written and directed by Brian de Palma. A disfigured rock opera composer seeks revenge against a record producer who has made a deal with the devil.

drama queen

And Morgan James clears the board. If this were "Family Feud," you'd get the money, but since this isn't Family Feud (and there is no money) you and "Anonymous" just get the joy of a job well done.

The "Phantom of the Paradise" quote is my favourite, and I suppose only us drama queens would recognize a "Beef quote."

Scott said...

Phantom of the Paradise? Isn't that the one where the guy's head gets stuck in a record press? Gross.

Muffy St. Bernard said...

That's the one! It's a difficult scene to forget.
