As I was a student of the theatre, and long since a vigorous cataloguer of obscure and humorous movie references, I often like to engage my friends in a game of Name That Quote. I’ll say a line from a movie, and wait for my friends to id the movie/TV show, the character, and the scene. Well, I’m sitting here trying out some Radiance features and half watching a great movie that I haven’t seen in quite a while. One of the characters uttered a line, a truly classic line, and it was like I was hearing it for the very first time. I laughed very hard.
As a result, I have decided to take my game to the internet. All three of my regular readers will be tough competitors, for sure.
- From time to time, I will post a quote on my blog.
- I will keep the commenting open on the post, and everyone is invited to take a stab at identifying the quote’s origin. I’m looking for movie/show name, name of the character or actor who said it, and the scene/scenario.
- First person to post a comment with the correct answer, will be the first person to post a comment with the correct answer. You can bask in the glory of victory, free of charge.
Admittedly, the web version of this game will be much harder, because you will not benefit from my excellent imitation skills, and thus the subtle benefit of inflection is lost. I will try to emulate it through punctuation. Good luck to you all, and may god bless the united states of america.
OK, ready to play? Here we go:
