    The Movie Quote Game

    What it says on the tin: to play cite a quote from a well-known film. If anyone gets the source right they get to pick a quote from a film of their choice. Quotes may (should?) be obscure without being impossible (hence why the source sould be a 'well-known' film). Play continues until no-one can get the quote. Then a new game may begin.

    So, to get us started, in which film do a number of characters say:
    "Hand me the keys, you fucking cocksucker."
    _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
    _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

      Correct. Your turn, Lem'.

        Thanks,David!



        Which film does a character say this? :


        Well then, in winter I will live in... Arizona. Actually, I think I will need two wives.

          Well I think I know the answer to this one (I can hear the actor's voice as I read it), but I'll wait to see if anyone else wants a stab at it before this turns into the "Lem 'n' Dave Show". :p

                Ooh, then I had the right actor but completely the wrong film. I would have said:

                And welcome azande - both to Moorcock's Miscellany and to this game.

                  where is this taken from?

                  Character A: You said it was clear!
                  Character B: I said it *looked* clear.
                  Character A: Well, how does it look now?
                  Character B: Looks clear.

                      Okay, how about this one:
                      We're entering savage new times, and we're going to have to be pure and direct and strong if we're going to survive them. Now, you and this cesspool you call a television station and your people who wallow around in it, your viewers who watch you do it, they're rotting us away from the inside.

                        Have I managed to kill this off on my first go? Here is another quote from the same film:
                        The television is the retina of the mind's eye.
