A Little Distracting Meme-age

I found an interesting little meme over at Jackies’ blog. Would you believe, this kept me up until almost 2AM on two separate nights? Well, maybe it was something else that kept me up, but the meme took advantage of my insomnia…

The idea is to publish lines from your favorite movies and ask people to guess what the movies are.

The original rule was to list fifteen, but I thought ten was quite enough for one little blog post. Maybe I’ll play again with the next ten on my list sometime in the future.

Well, here they are, in no particular order…and demonstrating that my taste in movies definitely runs to pure entertainment. And OLD. At least tonight…

1.) They think you dress like that because you shaped like that!

2.) Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.

3.) No, you are a hallucination, brought on by alcohol. Russian Vodka, poisoned by Chernobyl.

4.) How do you know you're not just as filthy and sent by him to nick the ring by being filthy when you have lulled us with your filthy eastern ways?

5.) Someday you'll find a man, a good man, and you'll love him, and marry him, and live and die for him. And I'll be hanged if I stand by and watch.

6.) Listen, Lucy, when I told my mother I was getting married to my wife, her intestines exploded. You tell them the truth now, you may as well shoot grandma.

7.) I want you to get married. I want you to have nine children. And if you only spend five minutes a day with each kid, that's forty-five minutes, and I'd at least have time to go out and get a massage or something.

8.) Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?

9.) It'll take me at least a week to dig up all my dolls in the cemetery.

10.) Okay, first of all, it's "creetin". If you're going to threaten me, do it properly. Second of all, you're nuts if you think kidnapping ME is going to help YOU cheat your way to the top.

Guess away! 


  1. Well, I don't know a single one so I'll be waiting to see the solution list.

    I hope you're hanging in there with everything else that's going on that you're not blogging about.  GET SOME SLEEP!!!

  2. Geez- yours are worse than Jackies! I am a old movie watcher but I guess I don't listen very well. Hope that doesn't say something about me! Dannelle

  3. Man, Lisa!

    I consider myself a movie buff, and I don't recognize a single one!

    Good idea though!


  4. I'm a movie buff too and old movies are my favorites.  Damn, you're good, Lisa.  I don't recognize a single one either.  Do tell, please?  P.S.  Thanks for your recent comments, interest and support in my most recent endeavor.  I really appreciate it.  

  5. Day before yesterday I woke up with this idea to do this for different genres of music and I wrote quotes from popular songs, asking my readers to guess the title and the singer. I'm even giving prizes to the winner. I had planned to do movies and literature and different types of music.  One reader said they'd seen this over on someone else's journal but until just this minute I hadn't.  AND the coincidence is that I did 15 also.  Someone said that might be too many but I was in the mood to have fun.  Surprisingly enough I only got one player out of my many readers. ::sigh::  

    Have a good week,
