1. Below are quotes from 15 of my favorite movies.
2. Without consulting Google,, or any other search engines, see if you can correctly identify the movies that contained these quotes
3. I'll post the movie titles (along with name of the first person to correctly respond) as they’re correctly identified.
4. Normally I ask that you send your answers to me via email. For this one you can just post your responses in the comments section.

Following each quote is the character who said it, the perfomer who played the role, and the movie title. Also included are the names of the people who correctly identified the quote.

1. When you're slapped you'll take it and like it. Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart), The Maltese Falcon. Answered by Pjazzy

2. He ain't in the box because of the joke played on him. He back-sassed a free man. They got their rules. We ain't got nothin' to do with that.

8. I want all of you to take a good look at this slovenly, sloppy boy - as an example of how NOT to dress. If you look like THIS in the morning, find some other clothes to wear.

Bridget Jones said...

Holy flippin cows Malcolm, this one is tough! I couldn't come up wiht even one..

Malcolm said...

Pjazzy: Damn! You got all 15 movies correctly. The only thing you misidentified was the actor who said quote #2.

Bridget Jones: The thing with movie quote games is that they can be really easy or really hard. Even for movies that we have seen. If the quote doesn't stick out, it's hard as hell to identify the movie.

You know some of these are favorites of mine as well. I can think of a twenty quotes in "Do The Right Thing" that I absolutely love. I am sure you figured I would get #4, 6, 7, 8, 12, 14, and 15. We actually recently spoke of the quote by Bogey in the Maltese Falcon. For some reason I remember the quotes from #2, 9, 10, 11, and 13 for some reason. I actually saw "Clerks" recently or I am sure I would not have known that one. I was most surprised that I was able to recall the quote for "Heathers", but it was too funny, so that's probably why I did.

Actually I almost stumbled on the Robin Harris quote. I could hear him saying it, but at first I could not recall from whom or where it came from.

BeckEye said...

Averting my eyes from the answers in the comments....(and I realize that I don't know very many!)

11. Heathers
13. Animal House

Jay said...

Here are the one's I knew without looking them up:
2. Cool Hand Luke
5. Clerks
7. Airplane
8. Lean on Me
10. Easy Rider
13. Animal House
14. 48 Hours
15. Glengarry Glen Ross

A lot of times I see a movie quote and I know I've seen the movie but can't come up with it. Even if I loved the movie. I also can't remember the character's name a lot of times. Maybe I'm getting old. haha

This was a cool meme though. I might combine it with my weekly poll. My favorite movie quotes and let people vote for the best one. Or something like that. haha

Malcolm said...

Pjazzy: Your knowledge of movie quotes and pop culture in general is fuckin' amazing! I actually put in my copy of "A Soldier's Story" yesterday to find some good quotes from it. As you know, there were a lot from which to choose.

Beckeye: Yup, you got both of those correct. It was hard to decide which one from "Heathers" to pick. One of the other quotes I almost went with was "Did you have a brain tumor for breakfast?"

Jay: 8 out of 15... not bad. I am the same way as you. A lot of times a quote looks familiar, but I can't place it. The same goes for song lyrics too.

Holly Smith said...

Nope. Without looking them up, I didn't even get one correct. The only two I might have possibly guessed were Airplane and Lean on Me. What's up with the no cheating rule??!! Just kidding. LOL

Hey Malcolm,

This might be my favorite quote from "A Soldier Story":

"See, the Black race can't afford you no more. There used to be a time, we'd see someone like you singin', clownin', yassuh-bossin'... and we wouldn't do anything. Folks liked that. You were good. Homey kind of *beep* When they needed somebody to mistreat, call a name or two, they paraded you.Reminded them of the good old days. Not no more. The day of the Geechee is gone, boy. And you're going with it".

Malcolm said...

Pjazzy: That is also probably my fave quote from "A Soldier's Story" as well. I decided not to include it because of the "beep" word.

And another thing, take those goddamned uniforms off like I said!

Malcolm said...

Holly: Movie quotes can be a bitch can't they?! As for the no cheating rule... when you cheat, you are only cheating yourself, lol.
