Miss Profe said...

I recognize quote #4. It's from the Breakfast Club, one of my all-time faves!

MommyBa said...

They are funny indeed! But how I wish I know the titles where these quotes came from. Some looked familiar but I just can't recall :(

Happy Thursday!

Malcolm said...

Hi mommyba,

Thanks for stopping by. I will provide the movies associated with the quotes in a post tomorrow.

ExPat Mom said...

Well, I only recognize #9, it is from Back to the Future. I guess I didn´t watch a lot of movies back then (I was just a little kid!).

Two Happy Moms said...

Funny but why am I not familiar with them?


Lori said... your list:) Especially #1....

Haley-O said...

That was AWESOME!!!! I recognize so many of them -- but can't seem to place even one of them....

BookMama said...

Well I've seen most of those movies but didn't recognize the quotes. I'm not great with quotes, I guess. (Only in a "selecting them" capacity, not recognizing them, LOL.)

My TT is up - Book Edition (surprised?).

Lisa said...

I've seen about half, but sadly didn't recognize any of them.

Happy thursday anyway! My list is up too.

pjazzypar said...

Great bunch of quotes. I especially remember the ones from 48 Hours, Hairspray, Back to the Future, and She's Gotta Have It.

BeckEye said...

The only ones I couldn't get were #3 and #5. I've never seen those movies.

Malcolm: said...

Beckeye: Wow, 11 out of 13... pretty damn good! I just watched "Hairspray" yesterday and laughed my ass off once again. It had been awhile since I had seen it. If you are a fan of camp and music of the 1960s, it is definitely worth checking out.
