Meme Scheme Strikes Back: Attack of the Movie Quotes!

Okay, so Mr. Furious has tagged me again(!) with another meme. This one goes to a place that I truly love-- movie quotes. The rules are as follows:

"Look up 15 of your favorite films on IMDb and take a quote from each. List them below. When someone guesses the quote correctly, cross it off the list. Leave a comment with your answers. And NO CHEATING (Googling)."
Oh, and most of these quotes have profanity. Enjoy!:

1) Some motherfuckers are always trying to ice-skate uphill. (Amy V!)
2) There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.
3) I distrust a man who says "when." If he's got to be careful not to drink too much, it's because he's not to be trusted when he does. (Pretty Rickey)
4) All right, Popeye's here! get your hands on your heads, get off the bar, and get on the wall! (Mr. Furious!)
5) Frank, let's face it, who can trust a cop that won't take money? (Mr. F!)
6) My grandfather used to work for your grandfather. Of course the rates have gone up.
7) Your country ain't your blood. Remember that. (Haley!)
8) You killed my father, your ass is mine!
9) The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.
10) You ain't got a license to kill bookies and today I ain't sellin'. So take your flunky and dangle. (Rickey Henderson!)
11) Look out. Muppets. (2266!)
12) I shoulda been a farmer. (Haley)
13) That watch costs more than you car. I made $970,000 last year. How much you make? You see pal, that's who I am, and you're nothing. Nice guy? I don't give a shit. Good father? Fuck you! Go home and play with your kids. You wanna work here - close! You think this is abuse? You think this is abuse, you cocksucker? You can't take this, how can you take the abuse you get on a sit? You don't like it, leave. (Mr. F again!)
14) I'm talking to all those villains in Missouri. And all those villains down there in Cheyenne. And what I'm saying is there ain't no whore's gold. (Mr. Furious, dude you watch a lot of movies)
15) Are you trying to develop a sense of humor or am I going deaf? (Rickey Henderson again!)

Adam said...

Wrong! Try again!

5. American Gangster?

Mr Furious said...

4. FRENCH CONNECTION. I almost had one from that movie myself...

"I tore everything out of this car except the rocker panels"

"The rocker panels? what the hell's that? cmon irv!"

Mr Furious said...

13. GLENNGARY GLENN ROSS "I'm here from Mitch & Murray."

Mr Furious said...

14. UNFORGIVEN

Mr Furious said...

2 is not even close to what I thought it was...

Adam said...

Molly-- good guess. I'll give you a hint- it's a movie that takes place in NYC, and furing the same time in which American Gangster is set, but this movie was made relatively around that time.

And if that hint doesn't work, think underdover police work.

Adam said...

Mr. F, you're on fire!

Yeah, the line for #2 is one of my favorite movie quotes of all-time.

Rickey Henderson said...

Rickey's totally digging those film noir style quotes you picked...

#10: The always wonderful "Miller's Crossing"

#15: Temple of Doom!

Adam said...

Excellent work, Rickey. In fact, film noir is right on the money foir quote #3 (hint, hint)

Rickey Henderson said...

Hm, is it "The Big Sleep"?

Molly said...

5. Darn, it's The Departed, isn't it??

Adam said...

Sorry, Molly for my confusing clue. What I meant to say is that #5 was made around the same time in which AG was set, namely the 1970s.

And Rickey, close but no cigar. Think Peter Lorre.

Rickey Henderson said...

The Maltese Falcon it is!

Haley said...

12 - The Natural?

Adam said...

Rickey- YES!

Haley- DOUBLE YES!!

Haley said...

7 - The godfather II?

Adam said...

Jeez, Haley, you're on fire! Correct!

(You're not cheating, are you?)

Haley said...

Nope, I'm just having a really lucid morning.

I have one every 13 years or so. :)

Green Pilgrim said...

The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.

Scotty - Star Trek 4

Adam said...

Close, Green Pilgrim. Very very very close. Think Mt. Seleya.

Mr Furious said...

5. Serpico.

Adam said...

Correcto, Sr. Furioso!

2266 said...

Could #11 be Dragnet?

Adam said...

Yes! And welcome back!

AmyV said...

OK, I got here late. No. 1: Blade. Wesley Snipes is _such_ a badass.

Adam said...

Alright Amy! Finally, someone got my favorite movie quote right!
