A Movie Quote Meme With A Doodle Happy Ending

Hi, here's a belated movie quote meme completed on behalf of Mathman.


1. Here are quotes from 15 of my favourite movies.
2. See if you can name the films from whence they were lifted.
3. No googling or IMDBing; I'm trusting you on this.
4. I'll post the film names as they’re correctly identified.

My additional rule:
5. Person(s) with the most correct answers can supply a doodle idea for me to doodle.

The Quotes:

1. "What does Operations care about a bunch of damn books? A book in Dutch. A book out of Venezuela. Mystery stories in Arabic."
Three Days of the Condor [Matty Boy]

2. "Life mocks me even in death!"
An American Werewolf In London [Never Identified!]

3. "Well, I've been to one world fair, a picnic, and a rodeo, and that's the stupidest thing I ever heard come over a set of earphones."
Dr. Strangelove [Matty Boy]

4. "I saved Latin. What did you ever do?"
Rushmore [Cowboy The Cat]

5. "Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."
The Third Man [Becca]

6. "Back home, they put me in jail for what I'm doing. Here, they give me awards. "
Casino [SamuraiFrog]

7. "I heard about Doc, and I know why he did it. Somebody took away his painting privileges."
Escape From Alcatraz [Becca]

8. "Oh, ho ho! You sly dog! You got me monologuing! I can't believe it."
The Incredibles [J.D.]

9. "You're a very attractive man, Ken. You're... smart, you've got wonderful bones, great eyes, and you dress really interestingly."
A Fish Called Wanda [Tim]

10. "Ask him, Edie, how come he's so good at killing people?"
A History Of Violence [J.D.]

11. "You are named after the dog?"
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade [Cowboy The Cat]

12. "Pay strict attention to what I say because I choose my words carefully and I never repeat myself."
Inside Man [J.D.]

13. "What was Raymond doing with his hands?"
The Manchurian Candidate (1962) [SamuraiFrog]

14. "I think my body's getting used to these 36-hour days."
Primer [Never Identified!]

15. "Lisa, whatever female-driven, emotion-based dilemma you may be dealing with right now, you have my sympathy. But for the sake of time and sanity, let's break this down into a little male-driven fact-based logic. One simple phone call saves your dad's life. "
Red Eye [Lonie Polony]


To make this a meme with an amazingly happy ending, I have decided to offer my doodling services for *anyone* that was the first to correctly answer any of the questions.

I await your doodle ideas!


For Lonie Polony: Danny Zucco in Greased Lightning (how about Zucco in front of Greased Lightning? I should have read your request a little more carefully!)

For SamuraiFrog: A walrus typing on a laptop that's starting to explode.

For Tim: Working from home.

For J.D.: John McCain channeling The Hulk breaking a baby lamb in half, with the blood dripping onto a poster for Blade Runner

For Becca: Wonder Woman dancing with Mario (from Mario Brothers)

SamuraiFrog said...

13. The Manchurian Candidate

p0nk said...

i obviously don't get out enough.

#6 looks like something out of Apocalypse Now

Diamond Dave Diggler said...

Crap, I knew I had heard number 10 recently!!!

That was a pretty good film.

dguzman said...

1. Fahrenheit 451?

13. I thought it was Rainman too. Oh well.

Splotchy said...

Matty Boy, yes and yes! I especially commend you on #1.

sf, yes and yes for you as well! I'm not sure if the line in Manchurian Candidate was in the remake as well, but I had the original version in mind. I am guessing you would have gotten more answers if you had happened on this post a little earlier.

Splotchy said...

p0nk, yes, it sure does. I seem to remember a quote about awards from that movie, but can't recall the exact wording.

Gifted Typist said...

people are so damned good at these things,
they must look them up

Lonie Polony said...

Can I request a doodle of Danny Zucco in Greased Lightning? (From Grease, one of my favourite movies)

Thanks, LP

SamuraiFrog said...

Okay, my silly doodle idea, for some reason: a walrus typing on a laptop that's starting to explode.

Timothy Donavan Russell said...

I get a doodle idea? If so, "working from home".

(I hope that it will not be too similar to SamuraiFrog's walrus/laptop exploding.)

Red said...

Wow, I'd only seen a few of those movies, and the only one I got was Indiana... Allow me to offer you one of my favorites, "There are only two things I do really well, sweetheart, and skating is the other one!"

SamuraiFrog said...

It's beautiful!

J.D. said...

Ooh, ooh, me next!

Okay, how about John McCain channeling The Hulk breaking a baby lamb in half, with the blood dripping onto a poster for Blade Runner?


Becca said...

If it's not too late can I request a doodle?

Wonder Woman dancing with Mario (from Mario Brothers)

Lonie Polony said...

Cool, thanks for my doodle! The working from home one made me laugh :)

Becca said...

The doodle is super!!!! I love it thank you so much!
