I Can See Clearly Now



Time for a Movie Meme, to follow the Book Meme! 

This one is interactive...

A.  Pick 11 of your favorite movies.
B.  Then pick one of your favorite quotes from each movie.
C.  Post the quotes in your journal.
D.  Have everyone leave a comment with their guess.
E.  Place the guesser’s user name/name directly after the quote.
F.  Extra points for knowing the actor or character’s name!

Good Luck!!  Don't head straight to the internet to look them up, let's see who can guess some of them first!!

Here are my quotes... and I didn't pick Moonstruck, because you all know how much I love that movie and the quotes in it!  LOL

1.     "Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light."  (Guessed by erarein63, Ray, Dan Akroyd, in 'Ghostbusters')

2.     "There's no way, *no* way that you came from *my* loins. Soon as I get home, first thing I'm gonna do is punch yo mamma in da mouth!"  (Guessed by Psychfun, Buford T. Justice, Sheriff, from 'Smokey and the Bandit')

3.     "Wrong, a long time ago we knew each other for a short period of time; you don't know anything about me. It was easy back then. No one had a cushier berth than we did. It's not surprising our friendship could survive that. It's only out there in the real world that it gets tough." (Guessed by erarein63, Nick Nolte in 'The Big Chill')

4.     "What we do in life echoes in eternity." (Guessed by erarein63, Russell Crowe, as my man Maximus, in 'Gladiator', yum)

5.     "Everything is on its way to somewhere." (Guessed by erarein63, John Travolta, as George, in 'Phenomenon')

6.     Man 1: And remember, this gun is pointed right at your heart. 
     Man 2: That is my least vulnerable spot.

(Guessed by erarein63, Rick (Humphrey Bogart) to Captain Renault, in 'Casablanca')

7.      "The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize." (Guessed by Psychfun, Claree or Olympia Dukakis in 'Steel Magnolias')

8.     "I mean, not many girls in contemporary American society today would give their underwear to help a geek like me." (Guessed by Psychfun, The Geek, Anthony Michael Hall in 'Sixteen Candles')

9.     "Will someone get this big walking carpet out of my way?" (Guessed by Psychfun, Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher in Star Wars {orig.})

10.    "When you grow up, your heart dies." (Guessed by Psychfun, Goth girl, Ally Sheedy in 'The Breakfast Club')

11.     Woman: You're not the man I knew ten years ago. 
       Man: It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.

(Guessed by erarein63, Karen Allen, as Marion, to Harrison Ford, as Indiana Jones, in 'Raiders of the Lost Ark')

WOW!  Two people and every answer is ferreted out!  I thought Paul  would get on here or Dan and rock out a few, but hey, ya snooze... ya lose!  LOL   Thanks for playing with me!

I know that some of you will get a couple of these right away... but I am curious to see how it all goes!

be well,

Congrats to those two... they are very smart. That was a lot of thought for me on a Friday hehehe. This was a great idea though. You should do one every week.
Take care, Chrissie

I'm late ...again!  But I would have only gotten the Steel Magnolias quote right anyway.  (pouting)


cacklinrosie101 said...

ROFL...I've seen all those movies and couldn't remember the lines if my life depended on it.  Hehe...Debbie/psychfun needs a life (only teasing, incredible memory you have.)  I'm jealous.  My son can remember movie scripts almost word for word.  Not me.  I love the movies but couldn't recite a line if I tried.  Well, I was snoozing on this one but would have lost any way.  Hugs to you, Chris

Oops, I guess I was snoozing when you posted this. Fun! --Cin

My favourite line in a movie is the very last line from the movie"Severance", and it is just one word.
