Obscurity Calling


No, that is not a reference to the recent elections.

Used to be, I posted a lot on Live Journal and that was the title of my blog there.

Found a good post there, one worth sharing here. Enjoy!


Got this from here:


– Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
– Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
– Post them here for everyone to guess.
– Strike it out when someone guesses correctly and put who guessed it and the movie.
– NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.

So here’s my take on it. Have fun!

1. “This is glue. Strong stuff.”

2. “Can you help out a fellow American who’s down on his luck?”

3. “Any world that can produce the Taj Mahal, William Shakespeare, and striped toothpaste can’t be all bad.”

4. “Now, sir. We’ll talk, if you like. I’ll tell you right out, I am a man who likes talking to a man who likes to talk.”

5. “I haven’t had so much fun since the day we put glue on Fräulein Josephine’s toothbrush.”

6. “All right, you win. You win. I give. I’ll say it. I’ll say it. I’ll say it. DESTINY! DESTINY! NO ESCAPING THAT FOR ME! DESTINY! DESTINY! NO ESCAPING THAT FOR ME! ”

7. “You ain’t stopping at this hotel, kid. My hotel! The stars at night, I put ’em there. And I know the presidents, all of them. And I go where I damn well please. Even the chairman of the New York Central can’t do it better. My road, kid, and I don’t give lessons and I don’t take partners. Your ass don’t ride this train! ”

8. “Will you look at that! Look how she moves! It’s like Jell-O on springs. Must have some sort of built-in motor or something. I tell you, it’s a whole different sex! ”

9. “Listen here Birdie, it may be a good day for you, but it ain’t for Pa. All the poor man wanted was a new tobacco pouch and instead he won a house he didn’t want and he got a bad sunburn. ”

10. “What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you’d come to me in friendship, then this scum that ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And if by chance an honest man like yourself should make enemies, then they would become my enemies. And then they would fear you.”

11. “There’s many a man alive of no more value than a dead dog.”

12. “Come on, let’s get something to eat. I’m thirsty.”

13. “Anyone who isn’t dead or from another plane of existence would do well to cover their ears right about now. ”

14. “That’s it then. Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas. ”

15. “Ah, white men! Welcome to Hulahulanukanukaakoi-a-a-a-a Island.”
