The Movie Meme

Final Update! And this round in closed. Thanks for playing, everyone! Two no one guessed -- #4 was High Society (the movie musical version of the The Philadelipha Story and Grace Kelly's last film also starring Bing Crosby, a young Frank Sinatra, and Louis Armstrong.) #5 was Proof of Life with Russell Crowe as a ransom/rescue specialist and based on the Vanity Fair story Adventures in the Ransom Trade.

X-tra Rant didn't tag anyone specifically, but this meme was pretty cool so I thought I'd take up the gauntlet. Here's how it works:

A. Pick 11 of your favorite movies.
B. Then pick one of your favorite quotes from each movie.
C. Post the quotes on your blog.
D. Have commenters guess what the movie is.
E. Either strike out the quote once it has been correctly identified or place the guesser’s user name directly after the quote.
F. Extra points for knowing the actor or character’s name.

Movie 1: The Godfather (Anonymous),
"I don't want my brother coming out of that toilet with just his dick in his hands, alright?" Sonny Corleone (James Caan)

Movie 2: The Big Easy (torporific)
"New Orleans is a marvelous place for coincidence."

Movie 3: Mr. and Mrs. Smith (Jason266)
"That's all John, sweetheart."

Movie 4: High Society
"There's a dark horse in this here race and my boy's running a slow third."
"You'll find it under Harvard Classics. Just give Darwin a little nudge. "

Movie 5: Proof of Life
"You and me, we open our own shop. I run New York, you run London. We meet in the Caymans once a month to visit our money!"

Movie 6: Star Wars (original, now called Episode IV) (Anonymous)
"It'll be just like Beggar's Canyon back home!" Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill)

Movie 7: It's a Wonderful Life (Kevin)
"Merry Christmas, movie house! Merry Christmas, Emporium! Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan!" George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart)

Movie 8: On Her Majesty's Secret Service (Curmudgeon)
After a girl drives off leaving him stranded: "This never happened to the other fella." James Bond (George Lazenby)

Movie 9: Goldfinger (Curmudgeon)
"My dear girl, there are some things that just aren't done, such as drinking Dom Perignon '53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. That's just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs! " James Bond (Sean Connery)

Movie 10: True Lies (Joanne gets the movie and Brian D. gets the speaker)
Explaining their screw up to their boss: "It's a scale really, with a perfect mission at one end and a total pooch screw at the other, and we're right about in the middle." (Faisil, the tech guy)
"The guy is a used car salesman! This just keeps getting better and better!....I'm sorry, Harry, I know this is hard for you. But you gotta admit if this was me you'd be laughing your ass off!" Albert Gibson (Tom Arnold)

Movie 11 (also a million great quotes from this movie:) Pulp Fiction (Joanne)
"So he hid it in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass."

"Hey, you, Flock of Seagulls." (Jules)

"Check out the big brain on Brett!" (Jules)

"Garçon means boy." (Waitress)

"Sorry baby but I had to crash that Honda." (Bruce Willis, the boxer)

Oh, I could go on for hours. Go forth and guess. With this meme, I thee tag: Erudite Redneck, Jason at Foursquare 266, Nick at Torpor Indy, Brian at Confessions of an Exhausted Mind, and, hmmm, Lemming.

Is #3 Mr. and Mrs. Smith? Is that the name of that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie flick?
