I so enjoyed playing Miss Laurie's quote game several weeks ago that I decided to host one of my own. It's the ninth Quote of the Week (who else loves odd numbers?), so I have here fifteen quotes from various period dramas (yes, the numbers 9 and 15 have nothing do with each other, except that they're both multiples of 3. I'm random that way.) Your job is to guess who said each of these, and in what movie they appear. If you can guess the person correctly, you get one point; if you guess the movie, you get another point. Fifteen questions with a possibility of two points each; I'm no math whiz, but that would mean that the highest score you can get is 30 points. Make sense?
Feel free to leave your answers in a comment. The game will last until next Thursday (the 8th), at which time I'll reveal the winners. I won't publish your comments until then, but I will reply with your scores (so that you can guess again if you missed a few). I've removed characters' names where they are mentioned--that's where you see blanks.
Without further ado...

2) She could talk the hind leg off a mule. Hmm, wouldn't that be a change around here.
3) It seems to me, that if there is a bad taste in your mouth, you spit it out. You don't constantly swallow it back.
4) Why should I break my head about the outside world? Let the outside world break its own head! Well put, no?
5) If you refuse this offer, you will be the most ungrateful, wicked girl, and the angels will weep for you.
