Ten Favorite Movie Lines: Name that Film!

There's nothing like sitting down to watch a good movie after a long day of playing with kids, cleaning the house, and fixing meals. Here are some of my all-time favorite movie lines. See if you can identify which movies they come from!

(Yes, you could easily determine by my movie preferences that I have issues. But I love me a good comedy, especially ones from the '80s!)

What are your favorite movie lines?

Don't you realize? The next time you see sky, it'll be over another town. The next time you take a test, it'll be in some other school. Our parents, they want the bestest stuff for us. But right now, they got to do what's right for them. Because it's their time. Their time! Up there! Down here, it's our time. It's our time down here. That's all over the second we ride up Troy's bucket.
Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.
'Bout a nine on the tension scale there, Reub.
Hello Peter, whats happening? Ummm, I'm gonna need you to go ahead come in tomorrow. So if you could be here around 9 that would be great, mmmk... oh oh! and I almost forgot ahh, I'm also gonna need you to go ahead and come in on Sunday too, kay. We ahh lost some people this week and ah, we sorta need to play catch up.
Why are you wearing a suit?
Because of the funeral.
Whose funeral?
A friend. He died. We buried him.
Vincent Van Gogh. Everyone said to him, 'You can't be a great painter; you only have one ear.' And you know what he said, 'I can't hear you.'
Shampoo is better. I go on first and clean the hair. Conditioner is better. I leave the hair silky and smooth. Oh, really, fool? Really. Stop looking at me swan.
I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
You don't frighten us, English pig dogs. Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-called "Arthur King," you and all your silly English K-nig-hts.
Locksley, I'll cut your heart out with a spoon.
Then it begins.

    2. Back to the Future (i have all 3!)

    and then sadly, I didn't know the rest! ;)

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. Wow, I knew 5 of them! I love movies but I'm not up on current ones, so I wasn't sure how many I'd know.

    Fun post :-)

  3. Wow, I only knew three (#2, 9, and 10)! That was fun, though!

  4. Amanda, I don't think it's sad to admit you have all three BTTF movies. Do you have Teen Wolf, too? Because if so, then, that might be a little sad. : )Heather, and Caroline, I'm glad you enjoyed the post.

  5. Great movies. My favorite out of this list is when harry met sally and billy madison. Have a great night!
