ten for you
posted by soe 8:55 am

I’m serving jury duty today, so I’m offering you another meme, this time a movie-based one I found on Craftylilly’s blog:

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and 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. Looking them up is cheating, please don’t.

  1. “Unusual weather we’re having, ain’t it?”
  2. “God wouldn’t have given you maracas if He didn’t want you to shake ’em.”
  3. “When a German scientist tells you to hold on to your hat, it’s not casual conversation.”
  4. “The prettiest sight in this fine pretty world is the privileged class enjoying its privileges.”
  5. “I don’t like crooks. And if I did like ’em, I wouldn’t like crooks that are stool pigeons. And if I did like crooks that are stool pigeons, I still wouldn’t like you.” Rudi got it!
  6. “High school — those are your prime suffering years. You don’t get better suffering than that.”
  7. “A heart can be broken, but it will keep beating just the same.”
  8. “When I was your age, television was called books.” Catherine got it!
  9. “I was the equivalent of a 98lb weakling! I would go to the beach and people would kick copies of Byron in my face!”
  10. “When what’s left of you gets around to what’s left to be gotten, what’s left to be gotten won’t be worth getting, whatever it is you’ve got left.”

Clearly I won’t be able to share the answers until after I’m done with jury duty. Until then, have fun!

#8 = The Princess Bride! My favorite movie of all time. Hang in there with jury duty!

Oh good grief. Several of these are so familiar…especially no. 1 and no. 4 and no. 8…Can’t think…

I know #10 sounds soooo familiar, but DST is preventing my brain from functioning 100%. Looking forward to the answers, and hoping you’ll be done with jury duty shortly.
