Movie Meme

I saw this movie meme today at Baseballs and Bows. It looked like fun, so I thought I would try it.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb (Internet Movie Database) and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess (if you know them all, please don't guess every one).
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. No Googling or IMDb-ing. That's cheating, and that's no fun!
Here are my quotes:

1. It will come to you, this love of the land. There's no gettin' away from it if you're Irish. Gone With the Wind (said by Scarlett's father, guessed by Lynne)

2. The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. You've Got Mail (guessed by Joe)

3. Your girl is lovely, Hubbell. The Way We Were (guessed by Robin)

4. It does not do to dwell on dreams, Harry, and forget to live. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (guessed by Ter)

5. I had a farm in Africa. Out of Africa (guessed by Ter -- her favorite movie of all time:)

6. My friends just call me Ringo - nickname I had as a kid. Right name's Henry. Here's a clue -- 1939. John Wayne. Directed by John Ford. And the movie is . . . ________________??

7. I just have one question: What's with the turtlenecks? I mean it's the middle of summer. Something's Gotta Give (guessed by Gail)

8. Oh, Vermont should be beautiful this time of year, with all that snow. White Christmas (guessed by Robin)

9. Hey there, Mr. Grumpy Gills. When life gets you down do you wanna know what you've gotta do? (Here's another clue -- Next part of the quote: Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.) Finding Nemo (guessed by Bill)


10. I'll never let go, Jack. I promise. Titanic (first guessed by Robin)


Leave your guesses in the comments section. Good luck! (Tip: you may have to think back long and hard on some of these).

Okay - I know quite a few I think, but I'll only guess a couple of them.

1) Far and Away with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman

3) The Way we Were with Robert Redford and Barbara Streisand

8) White Christmas - Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye

10) Titanic - my favorite movie line spoken by Kate Winslet as she PUSHES Jack's (Leonardo DeCaprio) body off the floating headboard!

The only one I know is the last one, from Titanic! lol Shows you how much I remember lines from movies!!! Sheesh!

I so loved seeing some of your Easter decor...I just love that yellow & white sugar and creamer set you found!! I've decorated for Easter as well but I have a hard time thinking SPRING when we still have so much snow on the ground and the temps are staying so cold. As I type this, it's snowing hard again! Sigh! xox

Karen said...

Robin, Good guess on #1, but it's actually another movie. I really liked Far and Away though.

Lynne said...

1 - Gone With the Wind
4 - When Harry Met Sally

Fun meme!

Karen said...

Lynne, GWTW it is for #1. On #6 -- wrong Harry!

Anonymous said...

#5 is Out of Africa -- my favorite movie.

Is number 4 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone?

Well, I figure I've got to guess just one, and it's from a movie I love, so... Number 2 is You've Got Mail with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Great movie!

Stacy at Exceedingly Mundane said...

Ooh, these are fun Karen! I saw this at Lauren's too, and now yours... fun, fun! I just read them out to my hubby and my sister who is here visiting and we had fun guessing them :)

Have a great week!

Oh I know a lot of these but I'm late getting here to play along! I love White Christmas!
#7 is Something's Gotta Give with Jack Nicholson and Dianne Keaton.

Bill said...

I'm going to hazard a guess and say #9 is from Finding Nemo.

Lauren@Baseballs&Bows said...

There's only one left, and I don't know it, but I enjoyed reading your quotes! Thanks for playing along!
