Movie Madness Monday 41: Kurt Russell would have ruined this edition

We are back from a much-deserved Thanksgiving break to take on the forces of darkness and ignorance once again, so let's divert ourselves with a little movie quote trivia.

Here's what you do: I give you some quotes from a movie. You respond in the comment section with a quote or two from your own from the same movie. We do not reveal the name of the movie until Thursday, so everyone can play.

Here you go:


"You must unlearn what you have learned."

"I want my lamp back. I'm gonna need it to get out of this slimy mudhole."

"Let go, please."
"Don't get excited."
"Captain, being held by you isn't quite enough to get me excited."
"Sorry sweetheart. I haven't got time for anything else."

"Never tell me the odds!"

"Would it help if I got out and pushed?"
"It might!"

"How you get so big, eating food of this kind?"

"Come on, admit it. Sometimes you think I'm all right."
"Occasionally...when you aren't acting like a scoundrel."
"Scoundrel? Scoundrel? I like the sound of that."

**** Thursday Update: Let's all stay away from the Dark Side, because
The EMPIRE STRIKES BACK!

Yes, back when the Star Wars movies were more than technological wizardry, but actually involved good scripts and decent acting. What a rip-off to find that, if the six movies are about Darth Vader, he's a whiny little twerp rather than the source of all evil.

Why, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf-herder.

No! Try not. Do . . .or do not. There is no try.

X: I thought you knew this person!
Y: (DISTRESSED GROWLY NOISE)
Z: Well, that was a long time ago. I'm sure he's forgotten about that.

Mr Teacher got it right.

"Ben! Why didn't you tell me...."
