Last Chance: Linked Movie Quote Quiz

I was going to re-post this Friday, but it didn't seem appropriate with all the Terri news. Last chance to guess at the remaining quotes, and maybe the links, before I post the answers tonight.

Same rules: Name the movie, name the actor or character. (Don't sweat the minor characters in a couple of these quotes.)

This time it's a weird kind of list... some older movies, some frankly AWFUL movies that you still probably saw and unfortunately remember.

The Twist: Potato Head got it. All adjacent quotes are linked by common actors; i.e., an actor in #1 is also in #2, and actor in #2 is also in #3. In a couple of cases these Kevin-Bacon-style links are a little obscure; in one case, it's damn near impossible to get. But by and large they're fair.


First five to get the ball rolling, the rest beyond the jump.

1. I want you to be nice until it's time to not be nice

2. All that hate's gonna burn you up, kid.
--It keeps me warm.

3. This is the Cosby decade. America loves black people.

4. Oh I can hold my breath for a long, long time!

5. What does a girl have to do to sleep with you?
-- Try knocking.


6. I won't go schizo, will I?
-- It's a distinct possibility.

7. If I hear any more threats against the Captain's life, or any more rumors about going down to headquarters and assassinating the General, or raping the nurses at the field hospital, I'm going to strangle the guy with my bare hands! Got it?

8. What she needs is a man... to dominate her. A man to make love to her enough to make her love him. (HINT: He's talking about his daughter.)

9. 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. So long Holly.

10. I don't speak Mexican. Let's keep it in English, [name deleted].
--That's all right with me. I'm sure he's just as unpleasant in any language.
(HINT: This is an oldie, and a bit of an obscurity until it was rediscovered as a semi-classic by film buffs. EXTRA HINT: Get Shorty.)

11. What kind of a sick bitch takes the ice cube trays out of the freezer?

12. Come on. Don't make it weird.

13. What do you recommend I do?
-- I recommend you stop being such a faggot.

14. I'm gonna make Gretzky's head bleed for super fan 99 over here.

15. Hey Peter, man, check out channel 9, it's the breast exams.

16. That was definitely worse than "Clash of the Titans."

17. You break my heart. Then again, you break everyone's heart.

18. I'm sorry, son. I got this ringin' in my ears. My doctor says it could be related to my heart palpitations.
-- Really? I poop too much.

19. Well, for the sake of argument, let's say cocky-doody.

20. Wait. Where are you going? I was going to make Espresso.

21. You like my deck? It's a special one. I put an ace in it every time I kill someone.

22. Outstanding. Now all we need is a deck of cards.

23. I still can't figure out what these gloves are for...

24. Now imagine she's white.

25. Don't give me the finger. I'll fucking have you killed.

26. Wow. You know, it says here that by the time the average American is fifty, he has five pounds of undigested red meat in his bowels.
-- Why are you telling me this? What makes you think I have any interest in that at all?
Well, you eat a lot of red meat.

27. Where am I? I am in Boise, Idaho. No, no, no, I am in Anchorage, Alaska. No, I am in Casper, Wyoming, I am in the lobby of a Howard Johnson's and I am wearing a pink carnation.
BONUS POINTS! for character's full legal name, including middle name. Said in the movie, so it's fair.

28. There seems to be some mistake. My name is...
-- Names is for tombstones, baby! Y'all take this honkey out and WASTE HIM! NOW!

29. You are master of all you survey.
-- So I was yesterday. And the day before.

30. Sun-tzu: If your enemy is superior, evade him. If angry, irritate him. If equally matched, fight, and if not split and reevaluate.

31. These were Italian.
-- Now they're practical.

32. Can I get you anything more, doctor? I'm about to retire.
-- Really? You seem so young.

33. May I start by saying how thrilled we are to have you here. We are such fans of your music and all of your records. I'm not speaking of yours personally, but the whole genre of the rock and roll.

34. Let me let you in on a little secret -- they all jump.

35. Sweet love, renew thy force.
-- Don't say shit like that to me. People can hear you.

36. Cuban cigars are illegal.
-- Nobody tells me anything.

37. Well dog my cat.

38. You know, sometimes I even amaze myself. (CLARIFICATION: Okay, Han Solo says something very similar to this to Leia. But I pulled this quote from another movie.)

39. This information cannot leave this room. Ok? It would devastate my reputation as a dude.

40. She thinks you're shit. And deep down, you know she's right.
