And the winners are:

I can't do strikethrough, for some reason. Likely because I'm deficient in some way. So, I shall improvise:

1. "I'M NOT SHOUTING! ALL RIGHT, I AM! I'M SHOUTING, I'M SHOUTING, I'M SHOUT..." [Candlestick falls from above and hits him on the head]
JoyB, you get that one. It's from Clue, one of the BEST slapstick/group comedies EVER. Shit; I even forgot to use my favorite line..."Communism is just a red herring!"

2. "How shall we fuck off, O Lord?"
Pod wins. Life of Brian. It changed my little nerdy teenaged life.

3. "She doesn't get eaten by the eels at this time."
JoyB got that one, too. Oh, but Joy is a scofflaw and did not see the "one entry" rule. It is the strap for her. The Princess Bride, of course. Too easy. I should have tried harder. How about "I'm not a witch, I'm your wife!" Would you all have gotten that one? How about "No rhymes now, I mean it!/Anybody want a peanut?"

4. "Don't forget to kill Philip!"
Whaaat? Nobody? It's Shaun of the Dead. Seriously worth adding to your cult array, folks.

5. "No tongues..."
Young Frankenstein. Joy got it, but Karla, I'm giving that one to you. Or Trish. You're my Madeline Kahn.

6. "I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home. They're not much bigger than two meters."
The Man got that one. And the OG. Star Wars, natch.

7. "He's making violent love to me, mother!"
It's a Wonderful Life. Georgianna, I'm going to give it to you; you said "the Christmas movie with Jimmy Stewart." (I'm presuming that your familial holiday traditions don't include gathering around the TV to watch Rope every year. But, what do I know?)

8. "The review for 'Shark Sandwich' was merely a two word review which simply read 'Shit Sandwich.'"
This Is Spinal Tap. JoyB, you are a master. Damn you, JoyB!! (shakes fist)

9. "I had a dream. In fact, it was on the night I met you. In the dream, there was our world, and the world was dark because there weren't any robins and the robins represented love. And for the longest time, there was this darkness. And all of a sudden, thousands of robins were set free and they flew down and brought this blinding light of love. And it seemed that love would make any difference, and it did. So, I guess it means that there is trouble until the robins come."
OK, now, I am not EVEN telling you this one. Sigh. Do I HAVE to bring out the big guns? "Yes, that's a human ear, all right."
"I'll fuck anything that moves!"
"Heineken? Fuck that shit! Pabst! Blue! Ribbon!

10. "YOUR hearse?"
"Y'hearse!"
"Ohhhh! Then you shall take ME home!"
Harold and Maude. A wonderful love story; one of my very favorites, though recently tempered ever so slightly by Bud Cort's paranoid interview with Chris Garcia in our local daily. (Wiley Wiggins' blog gives Cort's rebuttal, though, and it might be true; Cort might be paranoid, but I can in fact imagine that Chris Garcia is a bit of a tool, himself.) Whatever; it's one effing great movie.

And there you have it. Song lyrics next!

I have seen every one of those movies, and recognized not a single quote. It's hell getting old, man.

Ok, the human ear quote gives it away. I haven't seen that movie since college. It's Blue Velvet. I adore Shaun of the Dead and love the "Don't forget to kill Phillip" line.

How could you not get the Star Wars quote?! I knew I'd heard a few of the others - but I'm not good with the quotes.

Damn. Michelle got to the "Blue Velvet" guess before I could.

However, I'm still disappointed that you (and no one else, for that matter) got the Xanadu quote from my movie quote meme thingie. For SHAME!!
