A Movie Meme

Amy of Untangling Tales had this game going last week. Her movie choices were really hard! I think I knew maybe two or three. Mine will probably not be so difficult, but here goes:

The rules:
1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. I’ll re-post this with all the answers in a week or so.
5. No Googling or IMDb-ing. That’s cheating, and that’s no fun!

Oh yes, if you go back through my archives you can probably figure these out easily but that would be cheating too!

1. Woman: "It offends me that you should speak to me as if it were your duty to rescue my reputation!"
Man: “I spoke to you about my feelings because I love you; I had no thought for your reputation!”

2. Man #1: "I shall never understand why you go through the world determined to be displeased with everything and everyone in it."
Man #2: "And I will never understand why you are always in a rage to approve of everything and everyone that you meet."

3. "Male company will be a pleasant relief in this hothouse of female emotions."

4. "You give him credit for too much cleverness. My impression was that he's just another blundering American."

5. "You have to show a movie at a party. It's a Hollywood law."

6. "You must unlearn what you have learned."

7. "You're born into a family. You do not join them like you do the Marines." (Given as counsel from one character to another)

8. Husband: "You'd think a woman with nine children would have more sense."
Wife: "If I had more sense I wouldn't have had nine children."

9. "I know what I must do, it's just that... I'm afraid to do it."

10. "The way prices are in this town I figure I’m going to go broke about 2:30 this afternoon." Or: "I'm sick and tired of these stupid things that keep happening to me - and somebody better do something about it soon!"

Bonus Movie: "Too early for flapjacks?"

These are a selection from some of my favorite movies and some of my favorite quotes. I can't always use my favorite quotes because then the game would be over and it obviously isn't all my favorite movies because I only listed 11 and I have so many favorites!

Answers here.

#2 - Pride and Prejudice

#7 - While you were sleeping - My mom and I love to watch that movie every time we get together...my favorite part is the dinner scene where they are all talking about different stuff. I've seen it a million times and it still makes me laugh.

Well I don't know all of them, but I know most.....I think

1. North and South
2. Pride and Prejudice
3. Man from Snowy River
5. Singing in the rain
6. Star wars -Yoda
7. While you were sleeping
10. Support your local sheriff (it took me a minute to get this one)
Bonus: Groundhog day

Well, technically #6 is from The Empire Strikes Back but I'll accept Star Wars, too. I love 'em all. :)

I avoided answering this the day you linked because I knew several and wasn't sure how many I should mention. :o)
But then when I came down to it I only *knew* 3,5,6, and 7 (though I guessed 1&2, not having seen them) but Lulu has all those already.

Good lines!

1. North and South. (I really like the accents and Mrs. Thornton. LOL.)
2. Pride and Prejudice! (I love that one, too!)
6. The Empire Strikes Back?

Those are all the ones I could figure out. Kinda obvious I like period movies and sci-fi with swordfighting. LOL.
