oh and DKM – her food, crochet, knitting and stuff

Movie Meme… Take two!

We have a couple still unguessed from last week… so I’ve added some clues for those three.

8. “Do you no good to go poking around under rocks, Justin. Some very nasty things live under rocks, especially in foreign gardens” The Constant Gardener ~The Cat Stephens

10. “It was like a message from God: “Honesty doesn’t pay, sucker.” The City of God ~The Cat Stephens

11. “Welcome back Jack, to the house of addiction.” Coupier ~KC

OK – here is the next set D-G. Good luck and no googling ;0)

1. “The man I bought it from explained to me that, when a husband gives it to his wife, they become two halves of the same person. Nothing can separate them… not even death.”  Dead Again ~Carrie Lofty

2. “I don’t think about that much with one shot anymore, Mike.”  Deer Hunter ~Zippy

3. “She’s the queen of the night.”  Diva ~Kelly Cat

4. “So Edward, did you have a productive day?”  Edward Scissorshand ~Roxy

5. “Oh, he was a little guy. Kinda funny lookin’.”  Fargo ~Slick, Shaggy & Scout

6. “There’s that guy from the stereo store. Don’t you think he looks like Richard Gere?”  Fast Times at Ridgemont High ~Captain Jack and Dante

7. “Don’t call me stupid.”  A Fish Called Wanda ~Boots, DeeDee * Dexter

8. “This is Doyle. I’m sittin’ on Frog One.”  The French Connection ~The Meezers

9. “Third prize is you’re fired.”  Glengarry Glen Ross ~The Kelly Cat

10. “I always wanted to meet an American. You are so, so different. Forgive me for staring.”  Gorky Park ~Ghost

11. “Even a poisonous snake isn’t bad. You just have to keep away from the sharp end.”  The Gods Must be Crazy ~Zippy

12. “I don’t know what you’re referring to, but maybe if certain older, wiser people hadn’t acted like such little babies, and gotten so mushy, then everything would be ok… and I think certain older people, like you, and your colleague, shouldn’t be leching after their students, especially when some of them can’t even get their own wives pregnant… and they certainly shouldn’t be making slanderous accusations, especially when certain young, naive peoples’ mothers are paralegal secretaries at the cities biggest law firm, and have won many successful law suits, and if you want to keep questioning me like this, I won’t continue without my attorney present.”  Election ~Spirit & Ezra

13. “Oh, the reason I called… Could you find out who else is in town? I’ve made two spooks and a ghoul already, so if they’ve double-booked the job, and/or they’re going to kill me, I’d like to know. If you could find that out, that’d be great.”  Gross Pointe Blank ~Captain Jack and Dante

Celebrate Poetry Month

I’ll send you a squiggle if you can let me know what movie this poem was used in ;0) no googling!

Congrats Chance! This poem was used in Apocalypse Now.

The Hollow Men – T. S. Eliot

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar
Shape without form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;
Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death’s other Kingdom
Remember us—if at all—not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.

  3. Well, the only Queen of The Night mom know is from The Magic Flute, but that doesn’t start with D-G. #7 is on the tip of mom’s tongue, but she just can’t remember from where. Mom remembers a Doyle in a movie, but again, can’t remember. So Mom says you rock, you are the undisputed movie buff and she concedes her ignorance. How do you want your raspberries.

  4. Is #4 Edward Scissorshand?


    Mom just had a brain burst.

    10-April-2008 at 5:33 am

  5. Guessing that #9 is “Glengarry Glen Ross”. Haven’t seen it, but read about it.

    If #4 isn’t Scissorhands, for some reason it sounds like it belongs in “Office Space”.

  6. HA! We only know #5 is Fargo, because it was made up in our neck of the woods, doncha know?!

    10-April-2008 at 7:51 am

  7. Spirit and Ezra

    We fink #12 is from Election with Reese Witherspoon.

    10-April-2008 at 8:35 am

  8. #8 from last week is from the constant gardener – so we’ll guess #10 from last week is city of god though we haven’t seen it ourselves.

    We know who you’re talking about for #11 from last week, he was in Mom’s favorite movie – Children of Men, but we have no idea what that is from.

    Whitney Houston sang queen of the night in the Bodyguard, but we don’t think that’s who you mean.

  9. Is #6 from Fast Times at Ridgemont High?

    We also guess that #13 is from Gross Pointe Blank! Oh Mommy loves that movie – and John Cusack

    10-April-2008 at 8:54 am

  10. What a fun game. We sure wish we could play. Our Lady doesn’t watch TV and hardly ever goes to the movies – she’s such a loser! Now, if you did song lyrics she’d be good for something. We’re gonna go put the bitey on her now, just because.

  11. Momma is no good at quotes…she doesn’t get to see a lot of movies either…


    10-April-2008 at 9:25 am

  12. We think #7 is from “A Fish Called Wanda”. Love it!!!

    10-April-2008 at 9:46 am

    10-April-2008 at 9:47 am

  14. No, dammit, Dead Again. I was mixing up my Emma Thompson/Kristin Scott Thomas thing again.

    10-April-2008 at 9:48 am

  15. We think #10 is from Gorky Park.

    The unguessed #11 actor from last week is Clive Owen. As for the movie and role, don’t know. (The last Clive Owen film I know is “Children of Men.” Bad movie.)

    He was the BMW driver, and one of the favorites to take over the Bond role. It was thought Clive Owen would bring that “Sean Connery” feel and class back to James Bond. But, of course, the best James Bond will always be Sean Connery.

  17. oh poo. someone already gave our guess to #7

    we think that maybe #8 is from the French Connection?

    10-April-2008 at 9:53 am

  18. We still cannot get even one of these! And we liked Fargo and Glengarry Glen Ross.

    This week’s #10 sounds like it’s from “Letters From Iwo Jima”, the companion film to “Flags of Our Fathers”.
