I don't really do the meme thing. But I stumbled upon this one (over at The Caffeinated Librarian) and thought it looked like fun. Maybe it will pull a few of my readers out of the shadows. It's interactive! It's fun! You know you want to play!
~Pick 15 of your favorite movies
~Go to IMDB and find a quote from each movie (or quote them from memory because you are that awesome)

~Leave your answer(s) in the comments.
One: Benny and Joon (Shani)
They used to be fat and juicy and now they're twisted. They had their lives stolen. Well, they taste sweet, but really they're just humiliated grapes. I can't say I am a big supporter of the raisin council.
Two: Captain Blood (Rusty)
Nuttall, me lad, there's just one other little thing. Do you think you could find me a good stout piece of timber? About so thick and so long?
Yes, I think so
Then do so and lash it to your spine - it needs stiffening. Courage! We'll join you at midnight
Three: Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (Rusty)
Armed? What do you mean armed? Armed with what?
Err, bad breath, colorful language, feather duster... what do you think they're gonna be armed with? Guns, you tit!
Four: Princess Bride (Hang Time)
You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.
You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.
What do they think I am? Dumb or something? Why, I make more money than - than - than Calvin Coolidge! Put together!
Six: Twelve Monkeys (Rusty)
There's the television. It's all right there - all right there. Look, listen, kneel, pray. Commercials! We're not productive anymore. We don't make things anymore. It's all automated. What are we *for* then? We're consumers, Jim. Yeah. Okay, okay. Buy a lot of stuff, you're a good citizen. But if you don't buy a lot of stuff, if you don't, what are you then, I ask you? What? Mentally *ill*. Fact, Jim, fact - if you don't buy things - toilet paper, new cars, computerized yo-yos, electrically-operated sexual devices, stereo systems with brain-implanted headphones, screwdrivers with miniature built-in radar devices, voice-activated computers...
Seven: Swing Kids (Fyffe)
No one who likes swing can become a Nazi.
Eight: Secretary (Aaron)
One scoop of creamed potatoes. A slice of butter. Four peas. And as much ice cream as you'd like to eat.
Nine: Night of the Hunter (Dad)
Leaning... leaning... safe and secure from all alarms. Leaning... leaning... leaning on the everlasting arms.
Ten: Serenity (Fyffe)
Goin' on a year now I ain't had nothin' twixt my nethers weren't run on batteries!
Eleven: Shaun of the Dead (Rusty)
As Mr. Sloan always says, there is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "I" in meat pie. Anagram of meat is team... I don't know what he was talking about.
Twelve: 5th Element (Fyffe)
Are you classified as human?
Negative, I am a meat popsicle.
Thirteen: Space Balls (Aaron)
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
Fourteen: Fight Club (Hang Time)
I am Jack's inflamed sense of rejection.
Fifteen: Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Fyffe)
And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the Lord did grin. And the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and large chu...
Skip a bit, Brother.
…And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.
Some of these I will be really surprised if people can get them. Some of them seem way too obvious- but those are the ones from movies that I've seen so many times that I can recite the whole damn thing. Oh well, have fun!
P.S. If you comment anonymously because you don't want to create a google account, which is totally allowed, you should leave your name (or some sort of identifying information) at the end of your comment so I can give you credit. I guess that's not really anonymous anymore, is it. But you totally want credit, right? I encourage you to use the Name/URL option if you don't have a google/blogger ID, because that's awesome and makes it easier for me to cyber-stalk you. Just kidding.
