"I Want To Play A Game."

A quote game, actually. And how better to title a quote game than by using a quote? If this game catches on, I'd like to do it often. If not, well... I won't.

So, I'm gonna come straight out and say I'm totally ripping off Fletch at Blog Cabins and his Twelve Tags Tuesdays. Though those aren't quotes, but movie taglines. But let me explain the rules of this game first:

1) I will give 10 movie quotes (nothing too broad like "It's you!" so don't worry there), and you must comment in the comments section on what movies you think the quotes come from.

2) I urge you to please try to avoid using google, imdb, etc. to cheat. Try to go from memory.

3) I will also have a theme, something that each of the movies that the quotes come from have in common. If you get the theme, you get however many bonus points for that game (points increase or decrease depending on the level of difficulty).

Now, that last one is the one where I'm really ripping off Fletch's game. However, he's also made note that he would like to try his hand at a similar game, but can't do his own because, well, he knows all the answers. So here's a game of similar style that I thought all of you might enjoy, as well.

If too many days go by and certain quotes or the theme is/are still unanswered, I'll take it as a stump and the points go to me (unless it's the theme wherein it would put me ahead of somebody else). The person with the most points by the end wins the game. And as the weeks go by (if this catches on), you can either try to take the title or uphold it if you're just that good.

I went incredibly easy this first time to ease everybody into it. So with all of that out of the way, here are this week's quotes!

1) "One gay beer for my gay friend. One normal beer for me because I'm normal."

2) "Frightened? Child, you're talking to a man who's laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom, and chuckled at catastrophe... I was petrified. "

3) "Of course I'm not happy! Look at me, I'm a big fat slob. I've got bigger titties than you do. I've got more chins than a Chinese phone book. I've not seen my willie in two years, which is long enough to declare it legally dead."

4) "I should do something very extroverted and vengeful to you. Honestly, I'm too tired. So, I think I'll transfer you to the undergrowth department, brackens, more shrubs, that sort of thing... with a 19% cut in salary, backdated to the beginning of time."

5) "I wished for a purple elephant, but now I want a pink elephant!"

6) "Well, don't look at me, pal. I just said you were a fair pilot. I didn't know they were looking for somebody to lead this crazy attack. "

7) "Wrong, sir! Wrong! Under section 37B of the contract signed by him, it states quite clearly that all offers shall become null and void if - and you can read it for yourself in this photostatic copy."

8) "I am the greatest swordsman that ever lived. Say, um, can I have some of that water?"

9) "She just moved through me. My God. I felt her. I can smell her. It's her. It's her. Smell my clothes. It's her. She's all over me. It's her. She's on me. It's her. I felt her. It's her. It is. It's... it is... it's my baby. It's my baby. She went through my soul."

10) "There is no good and evil, there is only power, and those too weak to seek it."


1) In Bruges (Alex)
2) The Wizard of Oz (Chris)
3) Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (Fletch)
4) Time Bandits (Me, Stump)
5) Bad Santa (Reel Whore)
6) Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (SteelKane)
7) Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (Chris)
8) Willow (Mikey Filmmaker)
9) Poltergeist (Reel Whore)
10) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone (Joseph)
Theme - Each movie features 'little people' (Mikey Filmmaker)

The theme is worth 2 points (it's super easy). Good luck!


  1. Well, to be fair, it's not like I was the first to come up with such games, but thanks for the credit anyhow.

    And I think I'm pretty good at the themes, but I'd probably be terrible with the actual taglines, and I'm probably not much better with the quotes. We'll see, though...

    On first glance...

    3. The Spy Who Shagged Me

    And that's all I got. Several seem familiar but I can't place them, and several seem unfamiliar.

  2. 2. The Wizard of Oz - Professer Marvel/The Wizard

    7. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - Willy Wonka

    Fun fun. :)


  3. Y'all are doing great so far, guys! I guess some of these are more difficult than I thought. I figured some of these would be picked up immediately.

  6. #5 is Bad Santa. Still scratching my head on the others.

  7. Good ones! So far Chris is winning because he's the only person to have guessed more than one thus far.

    There are 4 left. And any guesses on the theme?

  8. Haha the only thing I'm noticing is the whole lot of W's in titles and such. And that doesn't work for Bad Santa. :P

  9. Chris: Nope! It's something you'll find in each movie.

  10. If it's like a can of soup I'll flip a shit.

  11. haha, no... it's nothing THAT miniscule. It'll be pretty obvious.

  12. The theme is they all feature little people. I think...

  13. Mikey: Correct! Each movie features 'little people' (to be politically correct).

  14. I think #1 is from "In Bruges."

    If I am right, I don't think I would have thought of it without knowing the theme first, so thanks Mikey Filmmaker!

  15. Good one, Alex!

    That sucks, Al... gotta hate simultaneous posting!

  16. Duh-huh! Now that I know the theme is little people #9 is Poltergeist!

  17. Looks like I came in too late for this one. :)

    #10 is from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

  18. About time somebody gets number 10. I thought that'd be one of the easier ones to figure out.

    Good job, Joseph!

    There's just one left!

  19. Alrighty, too much time has gone by. So I went ahead and posted the final answer that nobody was able to figure out (Time Bandits).

    So Mikey Filmmaker wins this first round with 3 points! Good job! :P

  20. I would have never gotten Time Bandits.

    You may have won this time Mikey, but watch your back next round!

  21. Yes! I'm usually horrible at these games, so I'm going to celebrate. I probably will never win again. Haha.
