**EDIT: Well done, everybody! I've moved the as-yet unidentified movies up to the tops of their respective lists for increased visibility. Carry on!**

ganked from eponymous_rose. this is fun! the rules:

1. Pick 10 12 of your favorite movies and 10 of your favorite TV shows.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quotATION 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. Don't cheat, or you'll be put on academic probation, and nobody wants that.

the movies:


A: Sorry [B], I don't have a dime.
B: Didn't ask for a dime. Two dollars.
A: My little brother got his arm stuck in the microwave. So my mom had to take him to the hospital. My grandma dropped acid this morning, and she freaked out. She hijacked a busload of penguins. So it's sort of a family crisis.


A: Who are you? What's your name?
B: Well, usually I'm [B], but I'm not quite myself today.


#1 Clue. Ably ID'd by chatastic

A: Why would he want to kill you in public?
B: I think she meant he threatened, in public, to kill her.

#2 The Last Unicorn. ID'd by scarletsherlock

A: Do not boast, old woman. Your death sits in that cage, and she hears you.
B: Oh, she'll kill me one day or another. But she will remember forever that I caught her, and I held her prisoner. So there's my immortality, eh?

#3: Star Wars, original recipe. ID'd by jamon147

A: Boy, it's lucky you have these compartments.
B: I use them for smuggling. I never thought I'd be smuggling myself in them. This is ridiculous.

#5 Ferris Bueller's Day Off. ID'd by shinguard

A: Hey, [X]. You realize if we played by the rules right now we'd be in gym?

#7 Dogma. ID'd by chatastic

A: Anyone who isn't dead or from another plane of existence would do well to cover their ears right about now.

#8 Grosse Pointe Blank. ID'd by jamon147

A: So, is there a Mrs. Mysterio?
B: No, but I do have a very nice cat.
A: Not the same.
B: Well, you don't know my cat, it's very demanding.
A: It? You don't know if it's a boy or girl?
B: I respect its privacy.

#9 Disney's Sword in the Stone. ID'd by jamon147

A: Sounds like someone's sick. How lovely. I do hope it's serious. Something dreadful.

#10 Bringing Up Baby. ID'd by eponymous_rose

A: Now don't lose your head, [B].
B: My what?
A: Don't lose your head!
B: I've got my head, I've lost my leopard!

#11 Thomas Crown Affair. ID'd by shinguard

A: What was it?
B: Nice little Renoir...
A: Oh... Renoir
A: Nice little copy?
B: We'll never know will we?

#12 Jurassic Park. ID'd by jamon147

A: You're implying that a group composed entirely of female animals will... breed?
B: No, I'm simply saying that life, uh... finds a way.

the shows:


A: Now all we need is the third man.
B: Well, if it isn't Orson Welles, I can't be of any immediate help.


A: [X], you are about as politically correct as a Nuremberg rally.


A: I've got a memory like an elephant... that's lost its memory.


#1 X Files. ID'd by chatastic

A: Your contact, while interesting in the context of science fiction, was, at least in my memory, recounting a poorly veiled synopsis of an episode of Rocky and Bullwinkle.

#2 Avengers. ID'd by eponymous_rose

A: Would you like a drink?
B: Intravenously!

#6 Monty Python's Flying Circus. ID'd by gr33bo

A: Gentlemen, pray silence for the President of the Royal Society for Putting Things on Top of Other Things.

#7 Sports Night. ID'd by shinguard

A: What did you do?
B: I did what I do, [A]. I did what I do.
A: You screwed up your romantic life in front of fifth-graders?

#8 House MD. ID'd by jamon147

A: The healer with his magic powers! I could rub his gentle brow for hours. His manly chest, his stubbled jaw, Everything about him leaves me raw—
B: Psych ward's upstairs.
A: —with joy. Oh, [B] your very name will never leave this girl the same.

#9 Law & Order, original recipe. ID'd by eponymous_rose

A: I got another body coming in. Guy took a javelin to the chest.
B: Why are you still in this line of work?
A: Free javelins.

#10 Sherlock Holmes, Granada Version. ID'd by chatastic

A: I wonder if you'd do me the very great kindness of considering the possibility of waking up?
B: I assume you have a good reason.
A: Are you game for a drive?
B: Certainly. But... Does it have to be this early?
A: I have a little theory I wish to test.
B: Is anyone's life at stake?
A: Certainly not.
B: Would it be possible to test your theory a little later this morning?

I'm a bit afraid that either I've chosen quotations that are either ridiculously easy or are from films/shows that nobody has seen. prove me wrong!

My guesses:

Movies #1 and #5 are on the tip of my brain, but I can't quite get them. So I'll leave them for someone else.

Movie #3 is Luke(?) and Han from Star Wars: A New Hope.

Movie #8 is Debbie and Martin from Grosse Pointe Blank.

Movie #9 is Madam Mim from Disney's The Sword in the Stone. (Nice one.)

Movie #12 is someone (Dr. Sattler?) and Dr. Ian Malcolm from Jurassic Park.

Show #8 is Wilson and House from House.

Movie #7 is Dogma! Huzzah!

Show #10 is TWIST, Granada!Flavor.

Show #1 is... X Files, I think? I think-think?

And Movie #1... Clue? No, that's wrong. Isn't it?

Movie #10 is Bringing Up Baby, I think? It's the only one that comes to mind (for obvious reasons), and the quote's awfully familiar.

Show #2 is totally The Avengers! :D One of my favourite quotes.

I wanna say Law and Order for show #9, because I vaguely remember something of the sort. (You'd think javelins would've stood out in my memory a bit more!)

w00t! check, check, and check again (I love the javelins bit from L&O; I have the sound clip on my iPod). also, I was distressed by the paucity of Avengers quotations on the IMDB board -- there are so many good ones from that show!

I know! That disappointed me terribly. I think I might have to start stealing DVDs from the Emma Peel box set at my parents' place again, and compile my own list. It must be done!

indeed it is—well spotted!

"Thank you, gentlemen. The year has been a good one for the society. This year, our members have put more things on top of other things than ever before. But I should warn you, this is no time for complacency. No, there are still many things, and I cannot emphasize this too strongly, not on top of other things. I myself, on my way here, saw a thing that was not on top of another thing in any way."

just was perusing the movies that weren't answered yet, and #5 is Ferris Bueller's Day Off, right?

#6 and #11 sound so familiar...i want to say #11 is Thomas Crown Affair but i'm probably wrong...
