Famous Movie Lines

Discussion in 'Homebound/Bedbound' started by jenniferbtheberge13, Jul 16, 2018.

  1. How about posting some famous (or not so famous) lines from movies. They don't have to be an exact quote, just whatever we can come up with!

    We could also try to guess the actor/actress who said the line.

    Hi Jennifer!

    Some of my favorite lines are:

    1. What we've got here is a failure to communicate.

    2. You had me at hello.

    3. Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.

    4. I coulda been a contender.

    Hi Jennifer

    Welcome to the Board. Lots of nice folks here. If you have any question, just ask.
    Thanks for starting a new game.

    1 I think Strother Martin said it in Cool Hand Luke.

    3 From A Wonderful Life. Don't remember who said it. Jimmy Stewart?

    4 From On the Waterfront; said by Marlon Brando.

    5 There ain't nothing more powerful than the odor of mendacity.

    6 I always think there's a band, Kid.

    7 A boy's best friend is his mother.

    Patti, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof is right. Said by Big Daddy-Burl Ives.

    GB, Psycho is also right. Said by Norman Bates-Anthony Perkins.

    You've both won a Maytag washer filled with a 6 month supply of Campbell's Tomato
    Soup plus a dozen cartons of Pall Mall cigarettes. "When the going gets tough, the
    tough men start puffin'.

    Jennifer, we are waiting for you to jump in. You can't win a pin if you don't jump in.
    Which reminds me of the puffin. Both Duckie and Barry said puffins have a perpetually
    worried look about them. I always thought they looked like they were thinking deep
    thoughts about something or other. How deep is the ocean, maybe.

    Morning, All

    Number 12 is from GWTW as Duckie said. It was Prissy played by Butterfly McQueen. McQueen was later on the Jack Benny program playing Mary's maid.

    11 is from The Wizard of Oz when Professor Marvel is revealed as a fraud. The actor was
    Frank Morgan who played half a dozen roles in the movie.

    10 is from All About Eve; said by Bette Davis as Margo Channing.

    9 is Lauren Bacall to Humphrey Bogart. Not sure which film.

    8 Yup, GB. It's from the John Wayne-Jimmy Stewart film Who Shot Liberty Valance.

    All correct Rock. I think the Bogart/Bacall film was To Have and Have Not. These are some of my favorite films. I like anything with Bette Davis or Humphrey Bogart. Jimmy Stewart is another favorite. GB

    Very nice (or fine), GB. You got seven right and one good guess.

    Yes, 15 is Schwarzenegger. I suspect all his movies are pretty much alike, but this
    one was The Terminator.

    17 was Dr. Frankenstein played by Clive Owen. Easy to remember because Clive
    rhymes with "Alive!" Hard to look up though. There's a current actor with the same name.

    19 is from Steel Magnolias. The line was delivered by Olympia Dukakis. Olympia is a cousin of Michael Dukakis who was Governor of Massachusetts and ran for President against the first Bush.

    Stage door was originally a play written by Edna Ferber and George S. Kaufman. They didn't think much of the movie and referred to it as "Screen Door."

    22. "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse."

    23. "Follow the money."

    24. "I'm the king of the world!"

    25. "What do you think of Sandy, do you think we can let her into the Pink Ladies?"

    Hey, GB

    20 Don't know. Ma Kettle to Pa?
    21 Sounds like a Judy & Mickie movie. Babes on Broadway?

    22 The Godfather
    23 Don't know. Shows up in a lot of crime stories though.

    24 James Cagney in White Heat. Saw that movie when it came out. Totally inappropriate
    for a nine year old.
    25 Grease. Saw that movie when I was 38. About 20 times. Totally inappropriate for my
    age but my seven year old son loved that movie so we saw it over and over. Said by one
    of the Pink Ladies.

    Hope you're having a good day.

    Here are some hints:

    #20. Think Alfred Hitchcock.

    #21. Yep, a lot of Andy Hardy movies. (correct)

    #22. Is the Godfather, among others. (correct)

    #23. Follow the Money was in a lot of movies/tv shows. The one I'm looking for is spoken by a real life person and portrayed in a film about a former politician. (good answer)

    #24. Yep, and also in a movie about a sinking ship! (good answer)

    #25. Right on target. I liked the songs from Grease. (correct)

    Hi Kiddo

    20 Birds and Alfred Hitchcock can only be The Birds. It always struck me funny that
    none of the birds were raptors. Here's a kawinkydink. I am currently reading a book titled Hitchcock and Selznick. They were linked in Hollywood for years.

    According to author Leonard Leff, in the early 30s Hitchcock was clearly the best movie director in England. He wanted to come to Hollywood which had better equipment, better support staff, and more money. But none of the American studios wanted to hire him
    after the men in charge looked at his films which were clearly inferior to their own product. Selznick finally hired him. Sent him off to other studios to work. Charged the other
    studios more than he paid Hitchcock and pocketed the difference.

    Both men had a lot in common beginning with their names. Same number of letters;
    both ended in "CK". And both wanted to be in charge, make lots of money, and win
    acclaim in Hollywood.

    23 Still don't know. Maybe All the President's Men or All the King's Men?
    24 Titanic?
