Still in Vacation Mode

Kathleen tagged me for a movie quote meme, so let me delay my reentry into the real world a little further...

Here are my rules based on the meme as it appeared on her blog, on Awkward Blogger, and on Moomin Light:

For the blogger (me):
  • List 10 favorite movie quotes or quotes from favorite movies.
  • Post them and ask readers to guess which movie each quote is from.
  • Reveal the film title once it's been guessed.

For readers:
  • NO googling or using IMDb search functions!
  • Leave your answers in the comments.
  • Hint: I won't be using quotes from any of the movies I already used for last week's Grand Rounds (and there's nothing from Lobster Man from Mars, either).

Here goes (hoping the ones I quoted from memory aren't too inaccurate...):

1. My dear chap, I never would have dreamt of depriving you of your moment of triumph. Alas, a moment was all I could spare. (The Scarlet Pimpernel, answered by Beach Bum)

2. George: I hope the damp hasn't killed him.
Innkeeper: The damp?
(Impromptu, answered by Anonymous from 10/20)

3. That boy is your company. And if he wants to eat up that tablecloth, you let him, you hear? (To Kill a Mockingbird, answered by Anonymous from 10/21)

4. Do you mean to tell me that my children have been roaming about Salzburg dressed up in nothing but some old drapes?! (The Sound of Music, answered by Kathleen and Beach Bum)

5. What you mean he don't eat no MEAT? ...It's ok. I make lamb. (My Big Fat Greek Wedding - Kathleen and Beach Bum, ya both got it again.)

6. Oh, he's just like any other man, only more so. (Casablanca, answered by Anonymous from 10/21)

7. Quite a glittering assemblage...Royalty. Nobility. The gentry. And...oh, how quaint. Even the rabble. (The Sleeping Beauty, answered by RAG and Zach's Mom)

8. By the word religion I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the will of God. I have seen too much religion in the eyes of too many murderers. Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves, and goodness. What God desires is here [points to the head] and here [points to the heart]. (Kingdom of Heaven, answered by California PA)

9. No, we don't want any OATmeal! (Moonstruck, answered by Anonymous from 10/20)

10. That cannot be too difficult to understand for someone with the learning to read Plato in Greek. (Lady Jane, answered by Anonymous from 10/20)

Kathleen - I gotta go check out Young Frankenstein now, because that wasn't the movie I had in mind! Now I'm a little worried I've misquoted, 'cause #2 was one of the ones I did from memory...oh well...

And #9 was on YOUR list! I was sure you'd get that one! :)

Shelly said...

is #9 - Mr. Mom?

Anonymous said...

Here's what I know:
#2 Impromtu
#9 Moonstruck
#10 Lady Jane

T. said...

Anonymous, you got it, three for three!

Resident Anesthesiologist Guy (RAG) said...

Sad that I would know, but #7 is from Sleeping Beauty with Mallificent entering the castle - have a 4 year old daughter.

Zach's Mom said...

Oh, Oh! #7 is Sleeping Beauty. Can you tell I have a 4 year old? I really need to get out more!

T. said...

Rag and Zach's Mom - I knew that Maleficent quote even BEFORE I had any four-year-olds!!

Another favorite from Sleeping Beauty was when Prince Philip argues, "This the fourteenth century, Father." Then there's when Maleficent despairs, "They're a disgrace to the forces of evil!" Geek... :)

Hints for the remaining three:

#3 and #6 are from black-and-white films - FAMOUS ones.

#8 is from a period flic (as, I notice, are many of my other what that says about me...)

Anonymous said...

#3 To Kill a Mockingbird

Anonymous said...

#6 Pretty sure that is Casablanca.

8. Kingdom of Heaven
...a moving quote by the character known as... the Hospitaller! (A member of the Knights Hospitallers, of Jerusalem.) Nice choice, wonderful blog!
