Movie Meme Thing

A) Post quotes from favorite movies (originally 15 or 16 or 20 or whatever).

B) People respond in the comments with the movie the quote is from.

C) No cheating with the internets, because we'll all know and you don't want to be shunned as a dirty, dirty cheater right?
(Although I don't really care if you cheat. Thems just the rules as pulled from another blog.)

Sue said...

Aw shucks! He took ones I know.
Hmm ...
#5. Gattaca?

3) The reason I'm doing this again is that I just watched Batman w/Adam West n'Burt Ward.

7) That's LIfe of Brian, isn't it?

18) Shot in the dark: Land Before Time?
