Movie Quote Madness

Okay, I've seen this at enough different blogs that I now feel compelled to get in on it, too.

The First Five Movie/TV Quotes that come into your head (must be from different movies/shows).

1. "I speeek good Eeeenglish! I luurhn eet frrrom a booook!" - Manuel (Andrew Sachs) in Fawlty Towers ("The Germans" Episode).

2. "For the love of Pete- It's the Witch and Dopey." - Linda Seton (Kate Hepburn) in Holiday.

3. "Few steps back." - Blondie (Clint Eastwood) from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. [Ed. - Updated. Sorry 'bout the earlier character misidentification. Dyslexia's kicking in again.]

4. "He'll rue the day he came up against the Extreme, baby. I'm talking imminent rue-age." Dusty (Philip Seymour Hoffman) from Twister.

5. "So anyway, Beethoven was rather glad when he went deaf." - Second Pepper Pot (Graham Chapman) from Monty Python's Flying Circus, Episode 21, "Beethoven's Mynah Bird".

This is actually very easy, since I use these quotes (and others like them) almost all the time in normal conversation.

Yips! to Sheila.

Whoa, been long enough since I saw Good, Bad and Ugly all the way through that I can't remember which character said that line buuuuut....

I do remember that Angel Eyes=Lee Van Cleef and Blondie=Clint Eastwood.

This is off the topic somewhat, but I was wondering if you happened to catch The Amazing Race last night.
One of the challenges for the contestants was to either lead 2 Llama's up a hill and into their pen or else choose to carry two large baskets through a town, up a longer hill and into to a market. This took place in Peru.

Of course, when I saw the llama's, I instantly thought of this blog! (go figure). Needless to say, it was rather funny watching the couples try to dodge the spitting, hissing llamas who refused to go willingly up the trail or into their pens, stubborn creatures that they are. (please don't take that personally!).

Just thought you'd like to know that the llamas did you proud, and in the end, only 2 or 3 of the couples (I think) were successful at llama herding. The rest of the contestants gave up and resorted to carrying the baskets instead.
I really don't think the llama's cared. :)

1) Kevin Costner (as Elliot Ness, on the whereabouts of Frank Nitty): "He's in the car".

2) From "Out of the Past":

Jane Greer: "I don't want to die, Jeff!"
Bob Mitchum: "Neither do I, baby, but if I have to I'm gonna die last". Best film noire, ever, incidentally.
