Since Roo and Ban got me motivated....

Think of 15 of your favorite movies, go to IMDB and find quotes for each. Post the quotes. When someone guesses the movie, add the movie name and the person who got it right. (No fair using IMDB to find the answer.) 

There's still a few left, take a crack at them!

1.          C1 My mother always told me that violence doesn't solve anything. 
            C2 Really? I wonder what the city founders of
Hiroshima would have to say about that.
            (Starship Troopers; banantalis )


2.         C1 Vaya con Dios, Castle. Go with God. (The Punisher; leaijrn)
            C2 God's going to sit this one out.


3.         C1 Then - I don't mean to sound ungrateful - but what are you doing hanging around?
            C2 We're here to pick up chicks.
            C1 excuse me?
            C2 We figure an abortion clinic is a good place to meet loose women. Why else would they be there unless they like to  f***? (Dogma; leaijrn)


4.         C1 I know we need the money, but...
             C2 Listen! We're not just doing this for money... We're doing it for a SHIT LOAD of money! 
            C1 Oh, you're right. And when you're right, you're right. And you - you're always right.

            (Spaceballs; banantalis )

5.         C1
Don't you think you're getting a little radical here? 
            C2 What's radical? 
           C1 Blowing a man's head off with a fucking hand grenade is a touch much, don't you          think? 
            C2 You got your way - I got mine. 
           C1 Come on, maybe he doesn't know anything. 
            C2 I don't really care.


6.         C1 Well Your Highness, I must say everything is going just swimmingly. I knew you had it   in you, ha ha!
            C2 I let her go. 
            C1 Yes, yes, splen - You... what? How could you do that?
            C2 I had to. 
           C1 Yes, but, but... but... why? 
           C2 Because... I love her. (Beauty and the Beast; leaijrn)


7.         C1 It's so quiet.
            C2 It's the deep breath before the plunge. 
            C1 I don't want to be in a battle. But waiting on the edge of one I can't escape is even         worse. (Lord of the Rings: Return of the King; leaijrn)


8.         C1 Hey, wait a minute. Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey. Hold it. Now, are we actually gonna go   before a federal judge, and tell  him that some moldy Babylonian God is going to drop in on Central Park West, and start tearing up the city? 
            C2 Sumerian, not Babylonian. 
            C3 Yeah. Big difference. 
            C1 No offense, guys, but I've gotta get my own lawyer.

            (Ghostbusters; banantalis )


9.         C1: Shall we play a game? 
            C2 Oh!
            C3 I think it missed him. 
            C2 Yeah. Weird isn't it? Love to. How about Global Thermonuclear War. 
            C1 Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of chess? 
            C2 Later. Right now lets play Global Thermonuclear War. 
            C1 Fine.

            (Wargames; calentir )

10.        C1: Wait, before we put a message out, do a search on the word clitoris. 
            C2  Hmm OK Found: 8,000,000 pages found with the word clitoris

            (South Park; banantalis )


11.        C1 Our shields are dropping. 
            C2 Then raise them! 
            C1 [pounds fists on console] I can't!
            C2 The override. Where's the override?

            (Star Trek II:The Wrath of Khan; banantalis )

12.        C1 Gunny, I'm afraid of heights. 
            C2 So am
            C1 You are? 
            C2 Jumping out of a perfectly good aircraft is not a natural act. So let's do it right, enjoy     the view. Come on.


13.        C1: (To C2), you will always be my captain and I will never forgot what you have taught me. Especially this last lesson. 
            C2 And what lesson is that? 
            C1: To recognize... when it is time to sheathe your sword... for good.


14.        C1 How long are you gonna be in town? 
            C2 Not very long.
            C1: That's what I said 25 years ago. 
            C2 Really? What happened? 
            C1: I got married to an ugly woman. Don't ever do that. It just takes the energy right out of you. She left me, though. Found somebody even uglier than she was. That's life. Who can explain it?


15.        C1 I have broken the fourth commandment, padre.  (The Mask of Zorro; moongoddess854 )
            C2 You killed somebody? 
            C1: No, that is not the fourth commandment. 
            C2 [pause] Of course not. Tell me, in what way did you break the most sacred of   commandments.
            C1 I dishonored my father. 
            C2: That is not so bad. Maybe your father deserved it. 
            C1: What?

Your home is a

Athletic Gamer's Villa

Your kitchen is actually a GNC franchise, though all you really need are your Power Bars and Red Bulls. There's a pantry with emergency backup caffeinated beverages. You also have some breakfast cereals in there, but you haven't had breakfast since last Spring. Your master bedroom has an on-call masseuse and sports therapist. Your study has current issues of Sports News & Sports Illustrated, marked with a highlighter for better preparing your fantasy sports league. One of your garages houses your Hummer, and others contain your H2, and H3... with room for an H4, if they ever invent one.

Your home also includes a roost for griffons. You've never actually seen a griffon, but you keep the roost ready anyway. Your guests enjoy your home theater with 37 different sports channels. Outside is the moat that protects your home from goblin invaders and extended family.

Below is a snippet of the blueprints:

On any given day...

On any given day, a person gets the chance to do something extraordinary. Whether it is pulling a man out of a car wreck, convincing a friend to go into therapy, or even just listening when someone needed to talk. I have been blessed enough to know when to act, and when to listen, though many say I still talk too much 
A couple weeks ago I graduated from Whitewater, earning two degrees, and achieving summa cum laude as I ended my five years in college. It’s been a whirlwind of a few weeks, to tell the truth I haven’t really had a chance to reflect on it yet until today. I’ve been working during the week, dodging my family when I’m not at work, and spending a lot of time with Nicole either down by me or up at her house. Yet now the time is here to grow up, and to take my first steps into a new world. It is one that I’ve glimpsed at from the safe windows of Fischer Hall 413, it’s one I’ve flirted with the last few summers, and it’s something I never thought I’d get to hold; now it’s here. Life after college.
I started applying for jobs several months ago, knowing that there would be a long period of rejection, tests, and interviews. I know that there is still a lot of that ahead of me, but it’s the here and now that demands my attention.
My parents threw me a wonderful graduation party, it was going to be family and some friends from school, but it wound up mostly family. The weather was gorgeous all day as the thunderstorms danced their way out of our area, we had the grill going, and I had the first beer boiled brat of the year off of our old charcoal grill. Then I noticed how much had changed.
My oldest cousin is turning 18 this year, when the last I looked he was still in grade school. My other cousin is no longer the “pretty in dresses” girl that used to come to holidays but rather the metalhead about to get her driver’s license. My neighbor’s son whom I used to baby sit is about to start high school, and half my friends are about to get married. It’s a shock to say the least when you wake up from a year at school to discover just what you missed while your nose was in the books. I don’t know if it’s the day winding down or the brat/Mountain dew inspired insomnia gripping me but for some reason I felt the urge to write, and so writing I am.
To tell the truth I’m not quite sure where to go from here. I’m in a very strong limbo until I find gainful employment. It doesn’t pay to find an apartment and drastically change my life over until I find where I’m going to be working, but at the same time I know I can’t stay with my parents any longer. This place just isn’t home, and it hasn’t been since I left for Whitewater those three years ago. This is a stopover, a storage unit, and a place to crash for the night, but it is not “home.” I know many people feel this way after returning from college, but for many of them it goes away as they readjust to their lives with their family. Others find fortune enough to get an apartment and skip the readjustment to going back home, but they have the advantage of knowing that come fall, they’ll still be living in that apartment when school resumes. The result is again, they have a “home.” Fischer Hall 413, my home for three glorious years has been passed on to two new tenants for fall.
Don’t get me wrong, my family is wonderful, and caring and giving, but my time here is at an end. My biggest fear is not the unknown, but rather it’s whom I know. I have made a great deal of friends in my time at good old U dub dub, and when on campus it’s pretty easy to stay in touch with many or all of them. Now that I am gone, and presumably going a lot further away from Whitewater than Elkhorn, I wonder how many I will get to stay in touch with. Invariably I will lose some of the people in my net of friends. There are some people I just won’t allow myself to let go of, but how many people will say the same?
I go now into this, this, “Undiscovered Country” with the knowledge I’ve accrued and all the wit of my soul. I know those who walk beside me, in the shadows, in the light, the day and the night. My only regrets are the things I’ve done over my time in school that hurt those closest to me, when I couldn’t see past the next day to further down the road. But as I made all those mistakes I learned a great deal, and paradoxically I learned not to regret them. I am the man I’ve made myself, with many great friends, and hopefully a long and bright future. The only regret I truly lament is all the opportunities I let pass by.

“And in time all things shall pass away,
In time, you may come back someday.
To live once more, or die once more,
But in time, your time will be no more.”

Thank you everyone I’ve met along my path, May our journey’s always parallel, and when they diverge may we reunite.
Forth my friends into the breach, damn the sails and give them hell.

joining the bandwagon

Since I finally got myself an Ipod, I figured I may as well jump on this bandwagon. I'll have to do this again since I left all my good music at school, so this is based on the short selection of what I dug up at home, or remembered to bring home...

so without further ado


1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question even if it doesn't make sense. [title - artist]
