Trivia Time!

I saw this on my friend Betsy's blog, and figured since I have a lot of downtime right now (more on that later) now would be a good time to share/play this fun game with all of you. The rules are simple:

1. Pick fifteen of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDB and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Fill in the film title once it's guessed.
5. No Googling or using IMDB search functions. THIS MEANS YOU!
6. Leave your answer(s) in the comments.

1. "
We are David and Ruth Laskin. Which one do you want to be? I prefer to be Ruth, but I'm flexible."
Movie: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Solved by: Betsy

"I can't believe you're gonna let a few little letters of the alphabet keep us apart. It is a detail! Just - look, just call me Damon, okay? It'll be like a nickname."
Movie: Only You
Solved by: Betsy

"The only true currency in this bankrupt world... is what you share with someone else when you're uncool."

4. "
But of course! Nothing says "romance" like a kidnapped injured woman! I'm not going anywhere with you!"
Movie: Stardust
Solved by: Betsy

"Do you love him, Loretta? "

"No. "

"Good. When you love them they drive you crazy because they know they can."
Movie: Moonstruck
Solved by: Betsy

"The only way to find out what story you're in is to determine what stories you're not in. Odd as it may seem, I've just ruled out half of Greek literature, seven fairy tales, ten Chinese fables, and determined conclusively that you are not King Hamlet, Scout Finch, Miss Marple, Frankenstein's Monster, or a golem. Hmm? Aren't you relieved to know you're not a golem?"

"Yes. I am relieved to know that I am not a golem. "

"Good. Do you have magical powers?"
Movie: Stranger Than Fiction
Solved by: Betsy

7. "You are the authority on what is not possible, aren't you Irene? They've got you looking for any flaw, that after a while that's all you see. For what it's worth, I'm here to tell you that it is possible. It is possible."

8. "It was sort of sweet actually - I mean, I know she's an actress and all that, so she can deliver a line - but she said that she might be as famous as can be - but also... that she was just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her."
Movie: Notting Hill
Solved by: Betsy

9. "
It's like we're on two different channels now. I'm CNN and she's the Home Shopping Network."

10. "I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all. No... not the artful postures of love, not playful and poetical games of love for the amusement of an evening, but love that... over-throws life. Unbiddable, ungovernable - like a riot in the heart, and nothing to be done, come ruin or rapture. Love - like there has never been in a play."
Movie: Shakespeare In Love
Solved By: Rissa

11. "Ok, I'll go first. I'm here to make new friends. Oh, and for the wine."

12. "Sonora, you have to be extremely careful with your appearance. I mean, having no natural beauty of your own you really need to help yourself."
Movie: Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken
Solved By: Gina and Audrey

13. "I didn't come here to tell you that I can't live without you. I can live without you. I just don't want to."

14. "Tyrone, you know how much I love watching you work, but I've got my country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it; I'm swamped."
Movie: Princess Bride
Solved by: Betsy

15. "Here, picture this... a rustic hunting lodge... my latest kill roasting on the fire... and my little wife, massaging my feet... while the little ones play on the floor with the dogs... we'll have six or seven."
Movie: Beauty and the Beast
Solved by: Elizabeth Wilson
