Wanna Play a Game?

I love movies.
I speak movies.
Meaning that most of what I say out loud is lifted from a movie of some sort. Well, from a movie or from "Friends."
So I thought I'd toss some of those oft used quotes your way and see if you can pick what movies they are from. I have also just thrown in a few random quotes from some of my favorite films just because I love them so much.
Hint: I have purposefully excluded any Star Wars or Indiana Jones Movies because, frankly, that's just too obvious.

(This post inspired by friend Sooz at Facts and Circumstances who also inspired Michelle over at Snow Comes Up.)

Here we go! (No Googling!)

1. "Don't say 'stinks,' darling. If absolutely necessary, 'smells' - but only if absolutely necessary."

2. "We got no food, no jobs... our PETS' HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!"

3. "My name... is MUERTE! "

4. "Horses, horses, horses."

5. "Insanity runs in my family... It practically gallops."

6. "Chris I'm begging you, it's really scary here. I've just seen three people shoot up, a bald Chinese lady with no pants on, and there's this old guy outside who wants his bedroom slippers!"

7. "Eunice? That's a person named Eunice?" (That one is for my Pop.)

8. " hopping sir."

9. "Conversation like television set on honeymoon: unnecessary."

And this, this is my favorite movie quote of all time. From a movie that seriously changed my life. It moves me each time I see it and this quote will always be in my mind on the days I need it most. I can't tell you to go see the movie because I don't know that it will have the same effect it had on me. But I don't think it would be a wasted 2 hours if you gave it a try....

10. "Sometimes, when we lose ourselves in fear and despair, in routine and constancy, in hopelessness and tragedy, we can thank God for Bavarian sugar cookies. And, fortunately, when there aren't any cookies, we can still find reassurance in a familiar hand on our skin, or a kind and loving gesture, or subtle encouragement, or a loving embrace, or an offer of comfort, not to mention hospital gurneys and nose plugs, an uneaten Danish, soft-spoken secrets, and Fender Stratocasters, and maybe the occasional piece of fiction. And we must remember that all these things, the nuances, the anomalies, the subtleties, which we assume only accessorize our days, are effective for a much larger and nobler cause. They are here to save our lives."


  1. I am assuming my Pop Culture Rock Star would know a bunch of these however he has to work early tomorrow (waking @ 4:45am) so he is sleeping and will not be back on the thing we call internet till tomorrow evening.

  2. I LOVE Undercover Blues, that is one of my favorite movies.

  3. Okay, I got 2 (classic), 4, 5, 8, 9 and 10. I haven't seen 10 but I've seen that scene. Can't decide whether I want to give it a try or not.

    Nicely done.

  4. I only know that Dumb and Dumber one... what does that say about me???

  5. I know for sure there's a poissson named Eunice! Unsure about a one other, no clue about the rest. I am SO old.

  6. All I know is:
    4. You've Got Mail
    7. What's Up Doc?
    But I'm dying to know what #10 is from!

  7. I believe #10 may be my all-time favorite movie and I'm so glad you love it too. In fact, I think I'll go watch it again. And my other favorite line from it is:

    "...if you pause to think, you'd realize that that answer is inextricably contingent upon the type of life being led... and, of course, the quality of the pancakes." or alternatively,

    "aren't you relieved to know you're not a golem?"
