Quote time

Because I need something distractionary, but without too much thinking behind it (for me).  Quotes.  First to guess gets a free icon, if they want.  And a free drabble for anyone who can correctly guess the theme that links all these movies together.


1) Character 1: How can I be expected to maintain the character when you belittle me in front of those hooligans?
Character 2: Character? Are we talking about the same man who once declared with total conviction that the late Colonel Howard had been bludgeoned to death with a blunt *excrement*?
Character 1: Is it my fault you have such poor handwriting? - Without a Clue guessed by [info]foodie

2) You're, well, you're a tad off base, sir. That thing looked like The Manson Family Christmas Special! - Scrooged guessed by [info]snapesgirl

3) Character 1: So, I hear you were terrorizing Mr. Morgan's class... again.
Character 2: Expressing my opinion is not a terrorist action.
Character 1: The way you expressed your opinion to Bobby Ridgeway? By the way, his testicle retrieval operation went quite well, in case you're interested.
Character 2: I still maintain that he kicked himself in the balls. - Ten Things I Hate About You guessed by [info]angela_snape

4) I think if you're going to kill somebody, kill them! Don't stand around talking about it! - Van Helsing guessed by [info]zephre

5) Character 1: You're sitting in a room with an all-southern view. Suddenly, a bear walks by the window. What colour is the bear?
Character 2: Red! The bear is red!
Character 1: Why on Earth would the bear be red?
Character 2: The southern sun is very hot. The bear would be terribly burnt!

6) You play when I say play. You breathe when I say breathe! You got that boy? You forget about your parents! They were pretty quick to forget about you! - August Rush guessed by [info]foodie

7) My partner and I witnessed that little torchlight picnic you threw last night, we're gonna put you where your kind always ends up - in a seven by seven foot grey-green metal cage in the fifteenth floor of some hundred-year-old penitentiary, with damp, stinking walls and a wooden plank for a bed. Sure, this city isn't perfect, we need a smut-free life for all of our citizens; cleaner streets, better schools, and good hockey team. But the big difference between you and me, mister, is you made the promise, and I'm going to keep it.

8) Character 1: I don't believe in it anyway.
Character 2: What?
Character 1: England.
Character 2: Just a conspiracy of cartographers, then? - Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead guessed by [info]zephre

9) You're a... you're a complex Freudian hallucination having something to do with my mother and I don't know why you have wings, but you have very lovely legs and you're a very nice tiny person and what am I saying, I don't know who my mother was; I'm an orphan and I've never taken drugs because I missed the sixties, I was an accountant. - Hook guessed by [info]kabal42

10) Character 1: Obvious: 'scuse me, is that your nose or did a bus park on your face? Meteorological: everybody take cover, she's going to blow! Fashionable: you know, you could de-emphasize your nose if you wore something larger, like... Wyoming. Personal: well, here we are, just the three of us. Punctual: all right, Delbman, your nose was on time but YOU were fifteen minutes late! Envious: Ooooh, I wish I were you! Gosh, to be able to smell your own ear! Naughty: uh, pardon me, sir, some of the ladies have asked if you wouldn't mind putting that thing away. Philosophical: you know, it's not the size of a nose that's important, it's what's IN IT that matters. Humorous: laugh and the world laughs with you. Sneeze, and it's goodbye, Seattle! Commercial: hi, I'm Earl Scheib, and I can paint that nose for $39.95! Polite: uh, would you mind not bobbing your head? The, uh, orchestra keeps changing tempo. Melodic: Everybody. He's got...
Everyone: [singing] The whole world in his nose!
Character 1: Sympathetic: aw, what happened? Did your parents lose a bet with God? Complimentary: you must love the little birdies to give them this to perch on. Scientific: Say, does that thing there influence the tides? Obscure: whoa! I'd hate to see the grindstone. Well, think about it. Inquiring: when you stop to smell the flowers, are they afraid? French: saihr, ze pigs have refused to find any more truffles until you leave! Pornographic: finally, a man who can satisfy two women at once! ... Religious: the Lord giveth... and He just kept on giving, didn't He? Disgusting: Say, who mows your nose hair? Paranoid: keep that guy away from my cocaine! Aromatic: it must wonderful to wake up in the morning and smell the coffee... in Brazil. Appreciative: Oooh, how original! Most people just have their teeth capped. [he pauses, pretending to be stumped, while the crowd urges him on] All right. Dirty: your name wouldn't be Dick, would it? - Roxanne guessed by [info]wolfish_cat

11) Watch yourself, _____, he's about to transform into the Indian MC Hammer! - Bride and Prejudice guessed by [info]angela_snape

12) The trouble with free women _______, is they're free to despise us. It's a risk I find unacceptable.

13) Character 1: Nice climate you have here. High oxygen content.
Character 2: I seldom use it myself, sir. It promotes rust. - Forbidden Planet guessed by [info]snapesgirl

14) The Haitians need to come to America. But some people are all, "What about the strain on our resources?" Well it's like when I had this garden party for my father's birthday, right? I put R.S.V.P. 'cause it was a sit-down dinner. But some people came that like did not R.S.V.P. I was like totally buggin'. I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, and squish in extra place settings. But by the end of the day it was, like, the more the merrier. And so if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians. And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty. Thank you very much.

15) You know what they say: some things in life are bad. They can really make you mad. Other things just make you swear and curse. When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble; give a whistle, and this'll help things turn out for the best. - Life of Brian guessed by [info]kabal42

We can never be sure that the opinion we are endeavoring to stifle is a false opinion; and if we were sure, stifling it would be an evil still.  ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

The only valid censorship of ideas is the right of people not to listen.  ~Tommy Smothers

To reject the word is to reject the human search.  ~Max Lerner

If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.  ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.  ~Voltaire

Freedom of speech means that you shall not do something to people either for the views they have, or the views they express, or the words they speak or write. - Hugo L. Black, U.S. Supreme Court Justice 1963

To hear one voice clearly, we must have freedom to hear them all. - Kerry Brock, of the Freedom Forum, 1997

You have not converted a man because you have silenced him. -John Morley

Censorship offends me.  ~Author Unknown

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.  ~Voltaire

Gay rights

"Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?"
-- Ernest Gaines


We would like to know who really believes in gay rights on livejournal. There is no bribe of a miracle or anything like that. If you truly believe in gay rights, then repost this and title the post as "Gay Rights". If you don't believe in gay rights, then just ignore this. Thanks.
