Whose Line Is It Anyway?

I have this habit. It’s a bad habit. I tend to watch my favourite movies ten times too many and then get hooked on my favourite lines or those lines that really stick out in the movie; it stays with me FOREVER! Actually a lot of what I say in real life is either made up on the spot, or a derivative of something I heard in a movie. So much so, that sometimes I even forget how I derived a phrase from something I’ve long forgotten about.

Throughout the years, I’ve watched thousands of movies, despite being picky about my genres and there have been many words and phrases that I’ve come across…most of which I only remember sporadically, or when faced with a particular situation or scenario that reminds me of or prompts the word or phrase in question.

Now I know that many of you are movie guru’s (or so you proclaim), so I thought I’d throw some lines out there and see if you can guess the movie. The one with the most correct answers will win an all expenses paid trip on the Virgin Galactic departing in 2 years time…destination Star-Trek. Ok maybe not. But I can promise that the winner will have unlimited bragging rights and hold the title of THE HOND (Afrikaans to English translation meaning: The Dawg).

I’m tagging everyone and anyone who’s interested or wants to compete. The rules are that in addition to guessing which movies I’m quoting from, you have to blog your favourites too; those quotes, sayings, phrases and lines that have stuck with you, so that we can all guess which movies they come from too. To spice things up abit, I’m making this quiz MANDATORY for the following people:

SO here we go...

1.) C: There is the embodiment of Love. Your Venus.

W: Oh and how I hate her.

2.) W: So she has a problem with moles. Besides it’s not a mole, it’s a beauty spot.
N: Well I can spot that beauty all the way from Wisconsin.

3.) Hey what did I say? Did you hear what I said? I heard what I said because I was standing there when I said it. I told you, I told you to secure a witness. Not to shoot up a neighbourhood, not to do another dead body. Just get the dope back and do it quietly.

4.) B: You making a movie or something?

T: More like an Ode.
B: To what?
T: Lives of quiet desperation, human existence at its lamest.
B: Oh fascinating. Do you need an assistant?

5.) By the word religion I’ve seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the “will of God”. I’ve seen too much religion in the eyes of too many murderers. Holiness is in right of action, courage and goodness.

6.) S: I just had an apostrophe.

H: You mean an Epiphany.
S: Lighting just struck my head.
H: That must hurt.

7.) Look Mr. M. If you’re edged coz I’m wheezing on your grindage, just chill. Coz, if I had the whole Brady Bunch thing happening at my pad I’d go crying over there. So don’t tax my gig so hard core cruster.

8.) I will slap you man. I will slap the hell out of you. You don’t know who you messing with. They call me snap and pop coz I snap and I will pop your ass. Don’t mess with me man. You better watch your back…even in the shower, even on picnics, you better watch your god damn back. Make a right.

9.) When I was a kid, my father had this dog. It started to get all weak and sickly so he took it to the Vet. The doctor examined it and said that a maggot must have laid eggs in the dogs butt. He said that there was not much that they could do. The baby maggots crawled up and started to grow and eventually they were going to eat the dog alive from the inside out. He said it should be put to sleep because it was an old dog anyway. But my father wouldn’t do it. He took the dog home, put it on the bed and started to reach up into the dog, just picking out the maggots with his fingers one by one. It took him all night but he got every last one. That dog outlived my father. That’s Love Sam.

10.) Well you don’t know me very well do you Creep-ella. I’m the Latina Marilyn Monroe. I got more legs than a bucket of Chicken. ¡QuĂ© tipa pendeja!

11.) A literate burglar? How refreshing.

12.) So. Ok. The Attorney General says there’s too much violence on TV and that should stop. But even if you took out all the violent shows, you could still see the news. So until mankind is peaceful enough not to have violence on the news, theres no point in taking it out of shows that need it for entertainment value. Thank You.

13.) You don’t write, you don’t call. And not once did you invite me to your house for coffee and cake.

14.) Ccccorbin, mmmmines not working. I don’t know what to do. Why I always gotta get the broken one?

15.) I understand. I got a brother, too. My little brother, Perry. We used to be best friends. Now we don't even speak. He thinks I tipped off the cops about the chicken fights in his garage. Can you believe that? My own brother think I'm a snitch. Just because my chicken lost in the semifinals. I didn't even really care. He had to fight a chicken that didn't make his weight. And he still went the distance. He had a lot of heart. And he was delicious.

No cheating. I'll post the answers in the comments box at a later date.
