Movie Madness Monday 26: Summer's lease hath all too short a date
Well it's Monday, which means it's time for Movie Madness Monday, the movie quote trivia game, and I was thinking: Some people get to go out of town during their break, and go to exotic places like the Caribbean (Mr. Lawrence) or Disney World (NYC Educator) or Oregon (Ms. Teacher) or Babylon (Mike in Texas said he was going to Sumer) or Massachusetts (Ramblin' Educat), which the BeeGees loved so much they even sang about it. Me? I got a puppy.
So how better to celebrate (?) the fact that I will begin to press my nose to the grindstone today than a little bit of Movie Madnes Monday? What would Mondays be without it?
So here's how we play: I post a few juicy quotes from a movie. You respond with a quote of your own from the same movie WITHOUT revealing the name of the movie, so everyone get a chance to play. On Wednesday, I reveal the name of the movie and usually some more trivia about it.
Simple, right? Then let's go!
“I gotta be crazy! I'm on a pilgrimage to see a moose. Praise Marty Moose! Holy Shit!”
“Why aren't we flying? Because getting there is half the fun.”
“Oh, Ellen, the old west was dirty. Everything isn't like home. If everything were like home, there would be no reason for leaving home.”
“I'm going steady, and I French kiss.”
“So? Everybody does that.”
“Yeah, but Daddy says I'm the best at it.”
“I think I broke my nose.”
“I stabbed my brain.”
“I just got my period.”
“You were the one's who sent me the fruit cake for Christmas. It made me so sick.”
“Oh, I'm sorry. We thought you enjoyed fruit cake.”
“You enjoy throwing up every five minutes, Claude?”
“You know, if I wasn't in uniform, I'd split your skull with the butt of this revolver, faster than you could say ‘police brutality.’”
***Thursday Update: This week's ironic choice is
National Lampoon's Vacation!
Chevy Chase! Beverly D'Angelo! Dennis Quaid! And some blonde chick.... who was that woman?
Oh yeah, Christie Brinkley, which anyone would agree is a goddess.
Thanks for playing! Come back next week-- if I survive my first week of school....
