It has been one year, eight months and nine days since we last had a Movie Quote Quiz around these parts, and so if I bring up another one today, no one can accuse me of redundancy. The rules are simple--your job is to guess who said each of these quotes, and in what movie they appear. If you can guess the person (or people) correctly, you get one point for each name; if you guess the movie, you get another point for the title. Four questions also have blanks inserted where names ought to be-- if you can fill in the names for each you'll get an extra three points. (The blank for question #9 corresponds to the name of Character 1, so you won't get extra credit for that one.) That's ten questions with a possibility of two points each for seven and and three points each for five, plus the name blanks; I'm no math whiz, but that would mean that the highest score you can get is 32 points. Make sense?
Please leave your answers in a comment. The game will last until next Saturday (the 17th), at which time I'll reveal the winners. To spare me the trouble of replying to every comment and calculating scores multiple times (in case we get a lot of responses), I'm going to limit guessing to one try per person. So think long and hard before you submit your answers, as you won't get to try again!
Without further ado...
1."You're like an ocean breeze. Not that you smell like fish or anything."
2.Character 1: "Oh! I am not really wicked at all, cousin ______. You mustn't think that I am wicked."
Character 2: "If you are not, then you have certainly have been deceiving us all in a very inexcusable manner. I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and being really good all the time. That would be hypocrisy."
3.Character 1: "You are behaving strangely, not yourself. You did not wish to go to dinner with the _______s. You did not want to take the boys to find frogs in the park."
Character 2: "Some might say that hesitation was a perfectly normal response to both those invitations."
4."I was looking for a draft of noble Norman wine, when down in the cellar I found this infidel. I was going to beat his brains out but I took pity upon his gray hair and converted him then and there."
5."Remember your manners. And don't forget to cross your ankles decently when you sit down. And don't sit in a draft, either. And don't slide down the banisters."
6."Well, the King is well pleased with you. All charges have been dropped. We're still going to hang you of course, but I'll spare the drawing and quartering." [stunned silence] "That was a joke."
7."But, uh, ______... if the little bird cannot see... AND cannot fly... how is he in the sky?"
8.Character 1: "As a matter of interest, will a time come when I read them first?"
Character 2: "You'll enjoy this. She has a real flair for description."
9.Character 1: "Why is it you only feel the thorns in your feet when you stop running?"
Character 2: "Is that some sort of heavy-handed metaphorical advice for me, _____?"
10."And if that doesn't leave me without a stain on my conscience, I don't know what it doesn't leave me without a stain on."
11."I strongly object to the Navy. It brings people of obscure birth into undue distinction and it cuts up a man's youth and vigor most horribly!"
12.Character 1: "You plastered yourself on him!"
Character 2: "It's proper to take a gentleman's arm if it's offered."
