The Answers, Please

Here are the answers to last week's movie quiz. Some of them you all got, some no one got. At least one was, according to my sister Lulu, "too vague." My apologies for that.

I think I'll do this again some time because it's fun and I haven't even scratched the surface of my all my favorites yet. (Actually #10 & the Bonus aren't my favorite movies but my family quotes them so often I had to have Prince Charming watch them before he married me just so he would know what we were talking about!)

1. Margaret Hale & John Thornton in North and South. Swoon. My actual favorite quote from this movie is right at the end, "You're coming home with me?" Swoon again.

2. Charles Bingley & Fitzwilliam Darcy in the 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice. You knew that would be in this quiz somewhere, right?

3. Rosemary Hume in The Man from Snowy River. This is a quote we used quite often in our home growing up (we had 3 girls until The Bear came along when I was 14). Now in my own family Prince Charming is surrounded by the girls and yours truly. Male company is a pleasant relief.

4. Major Strasser in Casablanca (about Rick Blaine). No one guessed this but it is one of my all time favorite movies.

5. Cosmo Brown in Singin' In The Rain. This movie is, in my mind at least, absolutely perfect in every way. I have the 2 disc DVD set and the 2 disc CD soundtrack set. Both see regular rotation in our house.

6. Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back. My favorite Star Wars movie but, as I said, I love 'em all.

7. Jerry to Lucy in While You Were Sleeping. Another movie that is quoted quite often in our family. I'm not endorsing everything in this movie but it is very cute and unobjectionable for the most part.

8. Mr. Snow to Carrie Pipperedge Snow in Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel. This musical is sad but sweet. The original cast recording has better music but the movie is beautiful.

9. This is the one that Lulu said is too vague and she's probably right. It could be from several different movies, I suppose. But I was thinking of Frodo in The Fellowship of the Ring.

10. This is a comic western called Support Your Local Sheriff. The first quote is by the Marshall (played by James Garner) and the second quote is by Miss Prudy Perkins.

Bonus: Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. My dad is always quoting this. "Don't drive angry." "He might be alright...well, maybe not now."

So how'd you do?

Casablanca and Lord of the Rings. Now why didn't I get those? :) Oh, well. 3 out of 11's okay.
