the (kinda late) movie meme

I saw this meme on a few folk's blogs, but with my brains being all scrambled and all, time passed by quite a bit before I got off my butt and tried it out here.

Here's what it's all about:

* Pick 15 of your favorite movies
* Go to IMDB (or wherever - if you know it by heart, even better, LoL!) and find a quote from each movie
* Post them on your blog for everyone to guess
* Fill in the movie title once it’s been guessed (and I will also link to the correct guesser's blog - free link love, whoohooo!)

These are your rules:
* No Googling or using IMDB search functions (i.e. Don’t cheat! Please! It's simple enough, really...)
* Leave your answer(s) in the comments (and even if you're not sure, just guess, have fun!)

.... and here they are, in no particular order ...
  1. "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious." (Star Wars - Kim)

  2. "Margaret Thatcher naked on a cold day! Margaret Thatcher naked on a cold day!" (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery - KApgar)

  3. "Ditto." (Ghost - KApgar)

  4. "Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads." (Back to the Future - KApgar)

  5. "Aaarrrggghhh! C*cksucker motherf*cker!" (The 40 Year Old Virgin - Miz UV)

  6. "A: Werewolf?" "B: There." "A: What?" "B: There, wolf; there, castle!" (Young Frankenstein - Eden)

  7. "I *did* knock..." (Nanny McPhee - Kat)

  8. "It's levi-OH-sa, not levio-SAR." (Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone - Eden)

  9. "... and since I am dead / I can take off my head / to recite Shakespearean quotations..." (The Nightmare Before Christmas - Eden)

  10. "He chose... poorly." (Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade - Kim)

  11. "A: Give me any kind of signal." "B: I'll do this: Caw! Caw!" "A: What are you, an infant? We have *these*!" (GALAXY QUEST - Kim)

  12. "A: Fahza, his dad, dad is fahza." "B: Oh, his dad. His *fa-ther* "
    (Austin Powers in Goldmember - KApgar)

  13. "A: This sure doesn't taste like an iced tea." "B: It's from Long Island."
    (Cruel Intentions - Lori)

  14. "Comb the desert!" (SpaceBalls - Kim)

  15. "Slowly, slowly, it's too nice a job to rush!"

QUALIFIER: not all of these movies are my "top 15" ... some I just quote from because that one quote might have been the highlight of the entire movie, y'know? :-) Anyways, have fun with this...

btw, I managed to get one right over at suze's - whoohooo :-)

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?
