Olympic Stats and a Movie Meme

I’m about 2/3 toward my bronze medal and I’ve made a start on the silver as well…..  pictures (the ones I can show, at least) will be up this weekend.
For some fun, a movie meme I spotted on Mindy’s blog:
1. Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.
5. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.

1 – What do you do when the thing you most wanted, so perfect, just comes?
2 – What makes a man a man? A friend of mine once wondered. Is it his origins? The way he comes to life? I don’t think so. It’s the choices he makes. Not how he starts things, but how he decides to end them. Hellboy (Cherylann)

3 – You all wanna be looking very intently at your own belly buttons. I see a head start to rise, violence is going to ensue. Probably guessed we mean to be thieving here but what we’re after is not yours. So, let’s have no undue fussingSerenity (Lisa, Jenn & Michelle)
4 – Let your mind start a journey to a strange new world! Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before! Let your soul take you where you long to be! Only then can you belong to me... The Phantom of the Opera (Jenn)
5 – The Duchess dove at the Duke just when the Duke dove at the Doge. Now the Duke ducked, the Doge dodged, and the Duchess didn’t. So the Duke got the Duchess, the Duchess got the Doge, and the Doge got the Duke! The Court Jester (Susan)

6 – My dear girl, don’t flatter yourself. What I did this evening was for Queen and country. You don’t think it gave me any pleasure, do you? Thunderball (Terri)
7 – No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know, for a little bit? I feel like the maid; I just cleaned up this mess! Can we keep it clean for… for ten minutes! The Incredibles (Jenn)
8 –  We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Lisa and Terri)
9 – With enough courage, you can do without a reputation. Gone with the Wind (Susan)
10 – And since I am dead,  I can take off my head to recite Shakespearean quotations!  No animal nor man can scream like I can with the fury of my recitationsNightmare Before Christmas (Jenn, Terri)
11 – I believe in love. Not just getting it, but giving it. I think that if you’re able to love someone, even if they don’t know it, even if they can’t love you back, then it’s worth it. Gosford Park (Debbie)
12 –  They take a sharp, red hot poker, stick it up your nose, scramble things about a bit, and then rip it all out through your nostrils. The Mummy (Susan, Michelle, Katrina)
13 – Angels and Demons can’t cross over onto our plane. So, instead we get what I call half-breeds. The influence peddlers. They can only whisper in our ears. But a single word can give you courage, or turn your favorite pleasure into your worst nightmare. Those with the demon’s touch like those part angel, living alongside us. They call it the balance. I call it hypocritical bullshitConstantine (Lisa)
14 –  You’ve been taken to the cleaners, and you don’t even know your pants are off.
15 – All you need to start an asylum is an empty room and the right kind of people.

**Had comment moderation turned on!  I’ll turn it off for this 🙂

  1. #12 is Evie from “The Mommy”. I love that quote!

    #9 is Rhett Butler in “Gone with the Wind.” I thought #6 was also by Rhett Butler, until I got to the “Queen” part. :lol

  2. #11 is Gosford Park, I can see the person who said it but can’t remember her name. One of the maids.

  3. #3 Serenity
    #8 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
    #13 Constantine

    I love all 3 of these movies. Have them all on DVD and watched them more time than I care to admit.

  4. 3- Serenity
    4 – Phantom of the Opera
    7 – The Incredibles
    10 – Nightmare before Christmas

  5. I’m loving this movie meme running about the ‘nets. It’s so much fun! I’m also realizing how uncultured I am. :o)

    I got Serenity (#3), The Mummy (#12) and #9 GWTW. And I SWEAR I just watched #6, I just can’t think of what it is. I’ve got The Other Boleyn girl stuck in my mind for this.

    Thanks for the fun!

  6. 12 is from the Mummy!

  7. #6 is James Bond 🙂 Thunderball to be exact 🙂

    #8 is Sirius Black 🙂 (I just watched this!)

    Susan, I know you meant “mummy” instead of “mommy” but I got a HUGE giggle out of it 🙂

    #10 is Jack Skellington

  8. This was too much fun! Everyone has already guessed the ones I knew, but this was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Even knowing there had to be a Hellboy quote on there, I still missed it. The ones you have left are from movies I haven’t seen (yes, I looked them up, it was killing me!). Already put this up on my blog. Thanks!

  9. #5 is Danny Kaye from the Court Jester.
