Bumped to the top, scroll down for new posts.

Got this one from El Capitan.

Here's the how-to:

1. Look up 15 of your favorite movies on IMDB.
2. Post a quote from each movie for your readership to identify.
3. As readers correctly identify the quotes’ origins in the comments, strike out the quotes and name the commenter who answered correctly.
4. If the commenter also identifies the name of the speaker (the character or the actor), he or she gets bonus points in the form of a link to his or her site. Simple enough?

Got it? Good. Let's do this thing.

1. Honest to goodness it's the absolute ultimate!

Update: SpySistah correctly identified this line as being
spoken by Sandra Dee as Gidget in Gidget.


2. Great balls of fire. Don't bother me anymore, and don't call me sugar.

Update: Anonymous correctly identified this line from Gone With the Wind. Scarlett said it.



3. I don't open beer bottles with my toes, I don't sit around and count what's left of my teeth, hey, I don't even enjoy a good tractor pull.

Update: Amelie correctly identified this line from the Cutting Edge as being spoken by Kate Mosely (Moira Kelly's character).


4. Frankly, I'd rather have a job wiping Saddam Hussein's arse.

Update: Amelie correctly identified this line from Bridget Jones' Diary as being spoken by Bridget (Renee Zellweger).


5. I am no longer astonished at you knowing only *six* accomplished women, Mr Darcy, I rather wonder at your knowing *any*.

Update: El Capitan correctly guessed that this was said by Miss Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice.


6. Flack had ingenuity and the contacts, Kim; That's better than bullets sometimes.

Update: Amelie is on a roll! She correctly identifies this line as being from Cloak & Dagger. Morris said it to Kim.


7. Chuy, hi. I'm Luke Skywalker.

Update: Two Half-points on this one for El Capitan who said "Darnit.... It was that guy from 'Friends' who was in 'The Whole Nine Yards', and he said it to this guy playing Salma Hayek's brother in that film called... called... I give up..." It was Matthew Perry's character Alex in the movie Fools Rush In. However, he actually said it to the character who played her ex-boyfriend.


8. Albuquerque. See I can do it too. Snorkel.

Update: Amelie nails it again! This one is Riley
Poole in National Treasure, spoken to one of the henchmen.


9. Waiter, will you serve the nuts? I mean, will you serve the guests the nuts?

Update: El Capitan correctly guessed that this was Myrna Loy as Nora Charles in The Thin Man.


10. More's the pity. Then your tailors will rule the land, and no one will make the clothes. So much for French fashion, and French politics.

Update: Amelie gets another one! This line is from The Scarlet Pimpernel, spoken by Sir Percy Blakeney.


11. I've hired you to help me start a war. It's a prestigious line of work, with a long and glorious tradition.

Update: El Capitan also correctly guessed this as being a line belonging to Wallace Shawn as Vizzini in The Princess Bride.


12. I'm setting booty traps.

Update: SpySistah correctly identified this as a line spoken by the character "Data" in Goonies.
13. Oh, yeah. Christian Demure. I've got tons of his stuff.


Update: SpySistah gets two half-points for identifying this as "John Travolta's wife in...ooh, this is killing me....that movie with C.Thomas Howell and the anonymous letters!" She is correct, Travolta's real life wife Kelly Preston spoke the line as Deborah Anne Fimple in Secret
Admirer.

14. Madame, if you continue masturbating my driver, you are going to be a murderer.

Update: SpySistah correctly identified this line as being from the movie My Chauffeur. She didn't guess it, but it was spoken by the character McBride - played by Howard Hesseman.


15. We were gonna fight our way through enemy territory. Scale the highest mountain in this goddamned place. Traverse a bridge that was about to collapse. And then if we were lucky, I mean really lucky, we were gonna fight our way through two thousand extremely poisonous snakes.

Have at it! No cheating now...

This just leaves #15. Come on! It is one of my favorite movies!
