Thursday Thurteen #16

Thirteen Movie Quotes. See if you can guess all 13.

1. "Hasta la vista, baby."

2. "That Vizzini, he can *fuss*."
"Fuss, fuss... I think he like to scream at *us*."
"Probably he means no *harm*."
"He's really very short on *charm*."
"You have a great gift for rhyme."
"Yes, yes, some of the time."
"Enough of that! Fezzik, are there rocks ahead?"
"If there are, we all be dead!"
"No more rhymes now, I mean it!"
"Anybody want a peanut? "

3. "Cause the house always wins. Play long enough, you never change the stakes. The house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big, then you take the house."
"Been practicing this speech, haven't you?"
"Little bit. Did I rush it? Felt I rushed it."
"No, it was good, I liked it."

4. "Y'know, this was supposed to be my weekend off, but noooo. You got me out here draggin' your heavy ass through the burnin' desert with your dreadlocks stickin' out the back of my parachute. You gotta come down here with an attitude, actin' all big and bad... and what the hell is that smell? I could've been at a barbecue!"

5. "If I'm not back in five minutes...just wait longer!"

6. "I tried to take it back, Boss."

7. "My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a 15 year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims, like he invented the question mark. Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy - the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical: summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring, we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent, I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds. Pretty standard, really."

8. "We're now a quarter of an inch tall, and sixty four feet from the house. That's an equivalent of three-point-two miles. That's a long way. Even for a man of science."

9. "Please, what does it always mean, this... this "Junior"?"
"That's his name. [pointing] Henry Jones ...Junior."
"I like "Indiana.""
"We named the *dog* Indiana. "

10. "God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs..."
"Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth..."

11. "Karate come from China, sixteenth century, called te, "hand." Hundred year later, Miyagi ancestor bring to Okinawa, call *kara*-te, "empty hand."
"I thought it came from Buddhist temples and stuff like that."
"You too much TV."

12. "1500 years ago, everybody "knew" that the earth was the center of the universe. 500 years ago, everybody "knew" that the earth was flat. And 15 minutes ago, you "knew" that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you'll "know" tomorrow."

13. "How much for the entire night?"
"Stay here? You couldn't afford it."
"Try me."
"300 dollars."
"Done! Thank you. Now we can relax."

I knew #1 was from Terminator 2, but the rest are just blur to me...

Dane Bramage said...

I knew most of these which is amazing since I don't see a lot of movies any more. If Laughing Muse is correct then I have seen all but two of these. My Thursday Thirteen #34 The 13 Things You Wish You Could Say At Work Edition is up. Stop by if you get a chance.

Christine said...

I can guess no. 1 - The Terminator and no. 7 - Austin Powers. I am at a loss for the others.

Great TT list - thanks for visiting mine.

Christine said...

Is #5 from Rocket Man! Hilarious movie! Great quotes. Princess Bride is always a favorite.
Happy Thursday!

Anonymous said...

Ha! Rocket Man cracks both hubby and me up. :-) I got several of these, but then I saw some of the answers here in the comments, too -- LOL!

Great idea for a TT, and thanks for visiting my blog!

Di said...

Finally at #13 there was one I know. As a matter of fact, I think I can do the whole dialogue of that movie. One of my favorites!!!!

Thanks for the great trip down memory lane (and for #2, which always makes me giggle).
