frankly my dear

Another meme!  I know you're excited.  Gacked from... somewhere, can't remember.

1.  Choose 20 of your favourite movies
2.  Post quotes from each movie
3.  Let the fun begin!

Basically the same as the song lyrics meme.  Man, some of these movies had so many good quotes, so hard to choose just one! 

Movie #1:   Stand By Me

-- Mickey is a mouse, Donald is a duck, Pluto is a dog. What's Goofy...?
-- He's a dog, he's definitely a dog...

-- He can't be a dog, he wears a hat and drives a car...

-- Yeah, that is weird. What the hell is Goofy?


Movie #2:  Pride and Prejudice

-- From the first moment I met you, your arrogance and conceit, your selfish disdain for the feelings of others made me realize that you were the last man in the world I could ever be prevailed upon to marry.


Movie #3:  The Princess Bride

-- You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.
-- You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.


Movie #4:  The Goonies
-- Don't you realize? The next time you see sky, it'll be over another town. The next time you take a test, it'll be in some other school. Our parents, they want the best of stuff for us. But right now, they got to do what's right for them. Because it's their time. Their time! Up there! Down here, it's our time. It's our time down here. That's all over the second we ride up
Troy's bucket.


Movie #5:  Brokeback Mountain

-- Anything interesting up there in heaven?
-- I was just sending up a prayer of thanks.
-- For what?
-- For you forgettin' to bring that harmonica. I'm enjoyin' the peace and quiet.


Movie #6:  Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
-- Which of the boys slept in this bed, do you think?
-- Dorcas Galen!
-- What's the matter? Haven't you ever thought of it? That you're sleeping in one of *their* beds?


Movie #7Ever After

-- Forgive me your highness, I did not see you.
-- Your aim would suggest otherwise.


Movie #8Good Will Hunting

-- Look, you're my best friend, so don't take this the wrong way. In twenty years, if you're still livin' here, comin' over to my house to watch the Patriots games, still workin' construction, I'll fuckin' kill you. That's not a threat. Now, that's a fact. I'll fuckin' kill you.


Movie #9LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring

-- It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing. Such a little thing.


Movie #10The Incredibles

-- Weren't you in the news? Some show in, Prayge... Prague?
Milan, darling. Milan. Supermodels. Heh! Nothing super about them... spoiled, stupid little stick figures with poofy lips who think only about themselves. Feh! I used to design for *gods*!


Movie #11The Mummy

-- Look, I... I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O'Connell, but I am proud of what I am.
-- And what is that?
-- I... am a librarian.


Movie #12The Little Mermaid

-- You've got your looks... your pretty face... and don't underestimate the importance of body language.


Movie #13Muriel's Wedding

-- When I lived in Porpoise Spit, I used to sit in my room for hours and listen to ABBA songs. But since I've met you and moved to Sydney, I haven't listened to one Abba song. That's because my life is as good as an Abba song. It's as good as Dancing Queen.


Movie #14:  Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

-- The dog? You are named after the dog?
-- I've got a lot of fond memories of that dog.


Movie #15:  The Rock

-- ‘I'd take pleasure in guttin' you boy. I'd take pleasure in guttin' you... boy’. What is wrong with these people, huh? Mason? Don't you think there's a lot of, uh, a lot of anger flowing around this island? Kind of a pubescent volatility? Don't you think? A lotta angst, a lot of 'I'm sixteen, I'm angry at my father' syndrome? I mean *grow up*! We're stuck on an island with a bunch of violence-for-pleasure-seeking psycophatic marines, SHAME ON THEM!


Movie #16: Singing in the Rain

-- What's wrong with the way I talk? What's the big idea? Am I dumb or something?


Movie #17:  Pirates of the Carribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

-- Put it away, son. It's not worth you getting beat again.
-- You didn't beat me. You ignored the rules of engagement. In a fair fight, I'd kill you.
-- That's not much incentive for me to fight fair, then, is it?


Movie #18:  Footloose

-- I thought only pansies wore neckties.
-- See that? I thought only assholes used the word "pansy".


Movie #19:  Adventures in Babysitting

-- Nobody leaves this place without singing the blues.


Movie #20:  Back to the Future

-- Last night, Darth Vader came down from planet Vulcan and told me that if I didn't take Lorraine out that he'd melt my brain.

PS:  Fan, did I thank you for the DVD?  If not, sorry and thanks!!

Correct!! I tried to pick not-so-famous quotes.

Stand By Me ruled my childhood. River! Kiefer! "Chopper! Sic balls!"

Oh Footloose. The music, the dancing, the teen rebellion. So.Good.

Ever After is so awesome. The only Drew Barrymore movie that I can watch multiple times.

All the ones I for-sure recognized were already guessed (#1, 5, and 13) so I'll take a shot in the dark and guess that #2 is Pride and Prejudice.

Speaking of Stand By Me (my favourite movie during high school, BTW <3333) have you seen this spoof of the trailer? I saw the link in Wil Wheaton's blog, and funnily enough it begins with the same quote that you chose.
May. 25th, 2006 09:36 pm (UTC)
#2 is indeed P&P :D

Awesome spoof. Wow, Gordie did look all creepy in the 2nd half. The "If I could only one food for the rest of my life? That's easy. Pez. Cherry-flavoured Pez" quote was a close second.

#3- The Princess Bride! Inigo Montoya to the mysterious Man in Black (aka The Dread Pirate Roberts aka Wesley) after having recovered from the exertion of climbing the Cliffs of Insanity. My most favourite movie ever--yes, even more than the LOTR movies!
May. 26th, 2006 01:45 am (UTC)
I love your detailed answer!! That whole exchange at the Cliffs of Insanity is one of my favourites -- to Inigo helping Wesley up the cliffs "I've known too many Spaniards" to their talk "Would you happen to have six fingers on your right hand?" to the actual fight "Who are you? I must know" "Get used to disappointment" "*shrugs*" <333
