[livejournal.com profile] qwrrty has inspired me

Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
Post them here for everyone to guess.
Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.

And, obviously, no fair looking them up and then guessing.

These quotes come just about verbatim from IMDb. I've changed them only to remove key characters' names. Ordered alphabetically by quote. I may have removed a few movies from my top ten either for having no quotes on IMDB or just being too darned easy (Big Lebowski, Godfather, Star Wars, etc.) or being used by [livejournal.com profile] qwrrty.

1. He had a mind like Aristotle and a form like mortal sin. [livejournal.com profile] jadiana - Lion in Winter

2. [He] thinks it's the end of civilization: People who are invited at 4 and arrive at 2:30.
Oh God.
Barbarians.

3. He was dead just long enough for the murder rap to blow over. And then he had lunch. [livejournal.com profile] zantony - The Usual Suspects

4. I say give them an opportunity to decorate their own cells with their personal interior decorator. [livejournal.com profile] mr_niggle - Everyone Says I Love You

5. My top schools where I want to apply to are Oxford and the Sorbonne. My safety's Harvard. [livejournal.com profile] zantony - Rushmore

6. Oh, God is testing us.
If He's gonna test us, why doesn't He give us a written?
- [livejournal.com profile] mr_niggle - Love and Death

7. So why the sad face?
Job requirement. Happy piano players work the circus.
[livejournal.com profile] bethlet - Beautiful Girls

8. Tuesday's Wednesday.

9. You've just had a bad day, that's all.
That's a masterpiece of understatement.
[livejournal.com profile] calum - Bringing up Baby

10. A woman is the most fiendish instrument of torture ever devised to bedevil the days of man. [livejournal.com profile] calum - O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Yep!

I'm so pleased someone got Bringing up Baby. When I was 13 I could recite that whole film backwards and forwards.

BTW, the friend who inspired me to do this meme [livejournal.com profile] qwrrty is, I think, part of a circle of friends who amusingly share two friends with you -- [livejournal.com profile] blk and [livejournal.com profile] weegoddess -- neither of whom I know.

1. The Lion in Winter

Yep! It was hard to pick an inobvious quotation.

Impossible!

I'm going to take a wild guess on #2 and say Hannah and her Sisters.

It's a good guess as there are two Woody Allen films here, but nope!

Hint: The movie it's from wasn't actually funny; that was the closest it got to a lighthearted exchange. Also, it was relatively recent (since 2000).

#4 is "Everyone Says I Love You." Unless, I miss my mark.

You do not miss your mark! How is it you did not get #6? Or, for that matter, #8!

OK, then!

Turns out he'd forgotten to write it down.
