Thursday Thirteen Trivia Challenge! You Know You Want to Try!

Thirteen quotes from movies I love. Can you name any of the movies? Whoever can name the most will respect? my appreciation? bragging rights?

1. I hope it feels so good to be right. There's nothing more exhilarating than pointing out the shortcomings of others, is there?

2. I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that.

3. Tyrone, you know how much I love watching you work. But I've got my country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder, and Guilder to frame for it. I'm swamped.

4. Don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.

5. Hey, how come Andrew gets to get up? If he gets up, we'll all get up, it'll be anarchy.

6. I can't believe I gave my panties to a geek.

King Arthur: Now stand aside, worthy adversary.
Black Knight: 'Tis but a scratch.
King Arthur: A scratch? Your arm's off.
Black Knight: No it isn't.
King Arthur: What's that, then?
Black Knight: [after a pause] I've had worse.
King Arthur: You liar.
Black Knight: Come on ya pansy

8. And five, now this is the most important, Rat. When it comes down to making out, whenever possible, put on side one of Led Zeppelin IV.

9. I'll be taking these Huggies and whatever cash ya got.

10. Don't I know you? I stole the baby from you while you were taking a peepee!

11. Excuse me, I believe you have my stapler...

Barry's Customer: Hi, do you have the song "I Just Called To Say I Love You?" It's for my daughter's birthday.
Barry: Yea we have it.
Barry's Customer: Well, can I have it?
Barry: No, actually, you can't.
Barry's Customer: Why not?
Barry: God. Do you even know your daughter? There's no way she likes that song. Oops, is she in a coma?

13. I'm sorry? Outside? Should I bring my dueling pistols or my sword?

I think I'm right, but, who knows. 1) Clerks. 2) Say Anything (I love Lloyd Dobler) 3) The Princess Bride 4) Napoleon Dynamite 5) Breakfast Club 6) Sixteen Candles 7) Monty Python 8) Fast Times at Ridgemont High 9) Raising Arizona 11) Office Space 12) High Fidelity.

Too bad you live thousands of miles from me, you would make a great movie buddy!!!!

Thanks everyone for playing. So far there have been no wrong guesses.

And piksea apparently has impeccable taste in movies!

Still no guesses on 10 and 13?

11:15 AM  
Blogger Mama! Mama! (Mel) said...

Holycrap. I thought maybe piksea had maybe had some help...then I saw your profile! Nice movie choices.

I love Where the Wild Things Are and we have most of the books by Sandra Boynton.

I must visit your blog more often. :)

Oh oh! I know #11!!! I LOVED Office Space. That's one of the movies I put into the DVD player when I want some background noise and something neaningless to watch while I do something else at the same time, like fold laundry or bake cookies.

My 13 are up.

Okay, without reading the other responses...
3. one of the best movies of all time: The Princess Bride (Also a quite terrific book)
4. Napoleon Dynamite
6. Sixteen Candles. I miss Molly Ringwald.
7. Monty Python and the Knights of the Holy Grail
12. High Fidelity

I know I know some of the others, but I can't place them, or am not sure enough to guess. This was fun! Best one I've seen all week. :-)

By the way, my thirteen are up. Now I'm off to read the others' comments so I can figure out what movies I missed and feel like an idiot for not guessing correctly.

I feel bad, I only knew 2 and am ashamed to tell which 2! My 13 are up also.

Blogger Jane said...

Well, I am a total dope.....I don't know any of these. However, #7 does sound like a Monty Python movie. Either that or Martin Lawrence's movie "Black Knight".

Loved the list. My 13 are up too!
Your blog design is great too!

Blogger Marcia said...

Hmmmm... Since only 10 and 13 are left to guess on... 13 is Bridget Jones' Diary, and... I have no idea about 10!

I came over from Nello's blog. I like you!!
