Quotent Quotables

Rob @ 7:23 PM

Those movie/tv quote memes everyone on LJ is doing. Nicked most recently from snowgrouse.

I shall be pleasantly surprised if people get all of these without cheating.

1. Pick 15 of your favourite movies.
2. Find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions

1. "The video arcade is down the street. Here we just sell small rectangular objects. They're called books." The Neverending Story - Matt

2. "Look, a drifter! Let's kill him."

3. "I'm going back and clean the crackers out of my bed. I'm expecting company."

4. "We've got one person online and the workload is enough for, like, ten users." - Hackers - Jenn

5. "I guess that's the way the whole durned human comedy keeps perpetuatin' itself."

6. "At last we meet for the first time for the last time." Spaceballs - Matt

7. "I say the future is ours, if you can count."

8. "He better not have broken those chains again. I'm not going back to the zoo for another set!" The Goonies - Matt

9. "It's just like working in a fish-market. Except you don't have to clean and gut fish all day."

10. "May I have 55 words with you?"

11. "And he pulls out this AT&T cellphone, pulls it out of the shrinkwrap, finger-hacks it, and starts monitoring phone calls going up and down Capitol Hill while an FBI agent is standing at his shoulder, listening to him."

12. "And that spells cash with a capital..." "K!" "You should go back to school." "I hated teaching."

13. "I'm not saying that you don't know what you're talking about, but I don't know what you're talking about."

14. "I really enjoy forgetting. When I first come to a place, I notice all the little details. I notice the way the sky looks. The color of white paper. The way people walk. Doorknobs. Everything. Then I get used to the place and I don't notice those things anymore. So only by forgetting can I see the place again as it really is."

15. "Then I ram my ovipositor down your throat, and lay my eggs in your chest!" Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - Rie

1. Pick 15 of your favourite TV shows.
2. Find a quote from each TV show.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.

5. "Who are you, and how did you get in here?" "I'm a locksmith. And, I'm a locksmith."

6. "I'll just nip off and shoot meself."

7. "Drugs eh? What's the point. They make you forget, make you talk funny, make you see things that aren't there. My old grandma got all of that for free when she had a stroke."

9. "Remember when we said there was no future? Well, this is it."

    I stumbled across your website while looking for the lyrics to "I Am the Very Model of a Gallifreyan Buccaneer" and thought I'd take a peek at what else you've written, saw this, and just couldn't resist answering a couple of the TV show ones. If I'm not mistaken... #1 is Doctor Who and #8 is Torchwood?
