the Oscar Movie-Quote Quiz
« Reply #15 on: February 23, 2007, 09:16:53 PM »
#19 was a favorite quote of my old friend Lorch from the Schwab days.  He never told me what movie it was from, though contextually I took it to be one of those Mafia reminiscences like Goodfellas or A Bronx Tale.

And I'm stumped on the rest.
“The choir of children sing their song.  They've practiced all year long.  Ding dong.  Ding dong.  Ding dong.”

I knew the correct answers for #25, 19 and 23 before I read the commentary in late posts.  #36 is just a guess based on the fact that you already said it's Woody.

8. "It's a hell of a thing killing a man. You take away all he is and all he's ever going to be." - Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven
10. “Did you know the human head weighs 8 pounds?" - Jonathan Lipickny (sp?) in Jerry Maguire
11. “You’re not gonna say that now! You’re not gonna say *that* NOW!” - Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
14. “It wasn't a miscarriage. It was an abortion.”  - Diane Keaton in Godfather II
18. "Everyone wants to be us." - La Streep in The Devil Wears Prada
19. “Leave the gun. Take the cannoli." - the guy who played Clemenza in The Godfather
20. "What do you want me to do? Dress in drag and do the hula?!"  - Timon (Nathan Lane) in Lion King
23. “In short, to recap it slightly in a clearer version, uh, the words of David Cassidy in fact, uh, while he was still with the Partridge Family, uh, ‘I think I love you’” - Hugh Grant in 4 Weddings...
25. “There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM and ITT and AT&T and Dupont, Dow, Union Carbide and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today”  - Ned Beatty in Network
28. “She needs me. It's not as if she were a maniac, a raving thing. She just goes a little mad sometimes. We all go a little mad sometimes. Haven't you?”  - Tony Perkins in Psycho
31. “I was cured, alright.”  - just a guess, Malcolm McDowell in Clockwork Orange
34. “Most people never have to face the fact that, at the right time and the right place, they're capable of... anything!”  - John Huston in Chinatown
36. "The last time I was inside a woman I was in the Statue of Liberty" - Woody in Crimes & Misdemeanors
40. “Girlie, tough ain't enough.”  - another from Clint, this time Million Dollar Baby
"Music is the Earth, People are the Flowers, and I am the Hose."

Thanks!

In retrospect I can't believe I didn't get the Marilyn Monroe quote from Some Like It Hot.[/i]
