Oh, and I'm gonna try that comment screening thing just so everyone gets a fair shot.
Movie #1 Toy Story
-- I've set my laser from stun to kill
-- Oh great. If anyone attacks, we can blink 'em to death
Movie #2 It's a Wonderful Life
-- What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That's a pretty good idea. I'll give you the moon, Mary
Movie #3 The Sound of Music
-- Fraulein, is it to be at every meal, or merely at dinnertime, that you intend on leading us all through this rare and wonderful new world of indigestion?
Movie #4 Juno
-- Did you see that coming?
-- Yea, but I was hoping she was expelled or into hard drugs
-- That was my first instinct too. Or a DUI... anything but this!
Movie #5 The Day After Tomorrow
-- Friedrich Nietzsche? We can't burn that! He's one of the most important thinkers in the 19th century!

-- But he was in love with his sister
-- Uh, excuse me, guys? Yeah, we got a whole section on tax laws down here we can burn
Movie #6 About a Boy
-- I'd be the worst possible Godfather. I'd probably drop her on her head at her christening. I'd forget all her birthdays until she was 18. Then I'd take her out and get her drunk. And, let's face it, quite possibly try and shag her
Movie #7 Hairspray
-- I'm very pleased and scared to be here
Movie #8 Serenity

Movie #9 Finding Nemo
-- Dude? Dude? Focus dude... Dude? Oh, he lives. Dude!

-- Saw the whole thing, dude. First you were all like "whoa", and we were like "whoa", and you were like "whoa..."
-- What are talking about?
-- You, Mini-Man, takin' on the jellies. You've got serious thrill issues, dude. Awesome.
-- Oh, my stomach. Ohhhh...
-- Hey, no hurling on the shell, dude, ok? Just waxed it.
Movie #10 The Truman Show
-- Good morning, and in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening and good night

-- Otherwise entitled, "let's tidy up the nursery"
-- I told you she was tricky
Movie #17 The Devil Wears Prada
