Your Monday Whimsy: The Movie Quotes Meme

We originally ran this meme a few months ago and figured it was worth bringing back for an encore performance. In short, it is an opportunity for our readers to flex their sizable geek muscles. As you movie savvy individuals correctly identify the quotes' cinematic origins in the comments section below, Rickey will cross them off and give credit where credit is due. And no cheating, you unscrupulous bastards (i.e., Googling). Either you're sufficiently culturally plugged in to know these quotes or you're not. Every up to speed? Good, because no one is going home until all the quotes are properly identified. Here we go:

1) “These, Tom, are the Causeheads. They find a world-threatening issue and stick with it for about a week.” PCU (Smitty)

2) “Oh, I've been to Prague. Well, I haven't ‘been to Prague’ been to Prague, but I know that thing, that, ‘Stop shaving your armpits, read the Unbearable Lightness of Being, date a sculptor, now I know how bad American coffee is' thing...” Kicking and Screaming (Adam)

3) “You're a brave man. Go and break through the lines. And remember, while you're out there risking your life and limb through shot and shell, we'll be in be in here thinking what a sucker you are.” Duck Soup (George)

4) “Somewhere around 25, bizarre becomes immature.” Singles (George)

5) “What, are you crazy? A man in a really nice camper wants to put our song on the radio. Give me a pen. I'm signing, you're signing, we're all signing.” That Thing You Do (Adam)

6) “Hell of a thing, killin' a man. Take away all he's got and all he's ever gonna have.” Unforgiven (Renalfailure)

7) "Would you say I have a plethora of presents Jefe?” The Three Amigos (Renalfailure)

8) “Say what you will about the tenets of National Socialism, at least it's an ethos.” The Big Lebowski (Renafailure)

9) "They cut the power? How could they cut the power? They're ANIMALS man!!!" Aliens (Renalfailure)

10) “You lewd, crude, rude, bag of pre-chewed food dude.” Hook (Statler)

11) “I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life.” Almost Famous (Alex)

12) “This is no time for Schopenhauer. This is important.”

13) "One man is not enough, she's gotta have a convention!" At the Circus (Statler)

14) “It's a trick. Get an axe.” Army of Darkness (Renalfailure)

15) "Good work, get some sleep, I'll most likely kill you in the morning." Princess Bride (Erik)

16) “I didn't invent the rainy day, man. I just own the best umbrella.” Almost Famous (Alex)

17) “In my opinion, all men are islands. And what's more, now's the time to be one. This is an island age.” About a Boy (George)

18) “You're not the anti-Christ. You're only a malcontent who knows how to spell.” Quills (Haley)

19) "The central message of Buddhism is not 'every man for himself'" A Fish Called Wanda (Smitty)

20) "Calling it your job don't make it right, Boss." Cool Hand Luke (Renalfailure) Again. Way to spam the contest and prevent anyone else from partaking in the fun buddy...

There's also one from the movie "Quills" but I'm to ashamed to admit that I know it. I'd like to take this moment to also state that I'm going to pretend that I'm not saying which one out of a desire not to "spam the list."

Sorry, movie quotes were always a round for pub quiz night, and I usually rocked the shit out of that round. That's why my team were three-time Pub Quiz Season Champs. Or as Chase Utley would say PUB QUIZ FUCKING CHAMPIONS!!!

Is the Schopenhauer quote from Meaning of Life?

Rickey Henderson said...

It's actually from an extremely obscure movie called "Antonia" It does sound like Monty Python though, doesn't it?
