Here are the answers as promised.  I have to say though, the blogging world really let me down this week and hardly anyone responded to the quiz.  Either you were baffled by the quotes or you “didn’t have time to respond” which i won’t accept that excuse because i guarantee my week was much busier then yours and i still took the time to do this…just sayin:

  1. “Show me the money!” – Jerry Maguire (1996)
  2. “Why didn’t you take off all your clothes?  You could’ve stopped 40 cars.” – It happened one night (1934)
  3. “Luca Brazzi sleeps with the fishes.” – The Godfather (1972)
  4. “Oh, you betcha, yah.”  – Fargo (1996)
  5. “You talkin to me? You talkin to me? You talkin to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin… You talkin to me?” – Taxi Driver (1976)
  6. “La-de-dah!” – Annie Hall (1977)
  7. “If anyone orders Merlot, I’m leaving” – Sideways (2004)
  8. “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night!” – All About Eve (1950)
  9. “Uh-oh, 12 minutes to Wapner.” – Rain Man (1988)
  10. “I see dead people.” – The Sixth Sense (1999)

In honor of the oscars…

February 25, 2008 at 12:40 am (Movies)

I’ve been home sick the past few days, but this has allowed me to do some relaxing reading.  I came across this neat quiz in USA Today that i thought would be fun to throw your way, especially since the Oscars are going to be on in, well, 10 minutes!  Below are 10 famous catch-phrases from 10 previous oscar winning films.  Can you guess what movie they are from?  Answers will be posted next Sunday.  I couldn’t get that many, but maybe you can do better?

DISCLAIMER:  This post is by no means trying to steal the thunder of breza’s occasional movie quote posts.

  1. “Show me the money!”
  2. “Why didn’t you take off all your clothes?  You could’ve stopped 40 cars.”
  3. “Luca Brazzi sleeps with the fishes.”
  4. “Oh, you betcha, yah.”
  5. “You talkin to me? You talkin to me? You talkin to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin… You talkin to me?”
  6. “La-de-dah!”
  7. “If anyone orders Merlot, I’m leaving”
  8. “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night!”
  9. “Uh-oh, 12 minutes to Wapner.”
  10. “I see dead people.”

Have fun! Good Luck! Winner gets a milkshake on me…now don’t cheat!
