The Wednesday Quiz III:1 -- Movie Quotations


The Wednesday Quiz -- Season III -- Quiz 1

Movie Quotations

The Wednesday Quiz is a "closed-book" test of knowledge and intuition; please do not look up answers, ask others for help, or answer as a team.

Questions about the rules and the ~Fabulous Prizes~ are answered here.

---

This week's Quiz brings you 12 great movie quotations. And they aren't just MY idea of great movie quotations! They are from the list of THE 100 great movie quotations compiled by that one group, the American Film Institute or whatever.
For 8 1/3 points apiece, Name the movie in which the quotation was featured!

1. As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again.

2. Badges? We ain't got no badges! We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinking badges!

3. Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac…It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!

4. Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!

5. I am big! It's the pictures that got small.

6. I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

7. Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

8. Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me... Aren't you?

9. Oh, no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was Beauty killed the Beast.

10. What we've got here is a failure to communicate.

11. You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I could've been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.

12. You had me at 'hello.'

For the ones that I recognized at all - I can't remember the movie titles. Like that last one that starred Cuba Gooding, Jr., Renee Zellweger, Tom Cruise, & that cute little boy - where Cuba was an athlete & Tom was an agent... (None of that recall is helping with the title...)

Michael5000 said...

Which makes Chef Phineas the winner of WQIII:1, with a four-way tangle for second among sister jen, Karmasartre, Elaine, and Season 2 Defending Champion Unwise Owl.

Michael5000 said...

Oh, half credit for "Blazing Saddles" on #2.

Owl: Regarding Casablanca, Indeed. When I made my first cut of possible quotations, four of them were from Casablanca.

Emily: Kudos, although no points, for the Cheech and Chong hail mary.

Morgan: OK, you may not have seen too many great movies, but you apparently also haven't seen Caddyshack, Dirty Harry, and Jerry Maguire, so it all comes out in the wash.

Elaine said...

I was recalling the 'badges' thing from 'Blazing Saddles.' I personally thought 'Sierra Madre' was boooooring and duuummb! and never recalled that it had a deathless quote in it...

You didn't like 'Jerry Maguire?'

Michael5000 said...

I know I saw 'Jerry Maguire,' and I remember virtually nothing about 'Jerry Maguire.' I don't remember being especially annoyed by it or anything.
