"Far too many quotes for my taste, and none of them about Christine."
~Andre and Firmin, "Notes" (tweaked slightly)
This quiz is made up of twelve familiar (or obscure...) quotes from various movie musicals. I've chosen to use just movie adaptations for this quiz because stage versions can vary as to what's left in and what's cut. To play, just comment with your guesses about a) which movie each quote comes from and b) who says each line. There are twelve movies and eighteen characters to identify (though some films may be repeated, so watch out for duplicates!), and therefore you can earn a maximum of 26 points. (Don't cheat and use IMDb. :D) I've left some blanks where names are used, but you won't get extra points for filling in the blanks because those names are the names of the characters. :D Winners will be announced on Saturday. Have fun!

"Now what call would a woman with that strength in her have to die of influenza? And what become of her new straw hat that should have come to me? [pause] Somebody pinched it. And what I say is: them 'as pinched it, done her in."
"How was India? I'll tell you how India was. I got up this morning and I shot an elephant in my pajamas."
Character 1: She's dancing with a man!
Character 2: I can SEE that she's dancing with a man! ...And I'M going to dance with MY wife!
"As the ship lay anchored in Boston Harbor, a party of the colonists dressed as red Indians boarded the vessel, behaved very rudely, and threw all the tea overboard. This made the tea unsuitable for drinking. Even for Americans."
"How's about some extra on a day so glad? Our little orphan girl, she hasn't done so bad. Raised in a convent, cash to spare-- we want our share."
