Movie Madness Monday 56: Not Everyone is Van Morrisson edition

Welcome to yet another edition of my movie quote trivia game, where I try to take you down memory lane in an official capacity in a contest to see who has more weird stuff stored in their brains.

Here's the deal: I give you some quotes, you respond in the comments with a quote or two from the same movie. Simple, yet maddening.

So let's launch it:

"I hate Illinois Nazis."

"Are you the police?"
"No, ma'am. We're musicians."

"You see, me and the Lord have an understanding."

"You are such a disappointing pair. I prayed so hard for you. It saddens and hurts me that the two young boys whom I taught to believe in the Ten Commandments have come back to me as two thieves, with filthy mouths and bad attitudes."

"Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration, don't fail us now."

"Bring me four fried chickens and a Coke."

****Weekend Update: If you don't know this, you're just not a Soul Man!


Because--We're on a mission from God.

And may John Belushi rest in peace.

"It's 106 miles to Chicago. We've got a tank full of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses."
"Hit it."

E: "Yep."

When Elwood asks what kind of music they play in this joint, he's told, "Oh, we got both kinds. We got country AND western."
