Movie Madness Monday 130: Beltway edition

Welcome back to my now occasional Movie Madness Monday, the movie quote trivia game. For a while there, I had to take a break, but the past week has inspired me to revisit an old favorite, and I hope you know it and love it like I do. If not, hie ye over to Netflix or whatever.

So we put our quotes from the movie into the comments section.

"Jesus Christ! You're a very handsome man."
"Thank you, Mr. President."
"Just get rid of the grin--you look like a schmuck."

"Sometimes we need our friends...and even our enemies, to feel safe and secure."
"We need them to feel like they can go to bed at night... knowing that President Mitchell is fully in control."
"We need them to feel like.. he's sitting right here...in this chair."
"Wait a minute. Wait! What about the vice-president?"

"She's great. She's really exotic! She's a princess! She's Polynesian - well, half Polynesian, and half American. She's... Amnesian."

"Somewhere, there is a distant light guiding us through this rocky shoal. America isn't what we say here tonight. lt's in the faces and the smiles of a Sunday afternoon. lt's in the gentle kindness of the family kitchen as we gather together when the sun goes down.''

"I'm going to kill him."
"You can't kill a President!"
"He's not a President. He's an ordinary person. I can kill an ordinary person."
"I can kill a hundred ordinary people!"

**** Weekend Update: I would gladly watch Kevin Kline singing show tunes a thousands times over in


Sigourney Weaver really adds to the fun, not to mention Charles Grodin coming back from the horrible Beethoven franchise.

This movie describes common sense taking over the White House. How wonderful an idea that is!

"Hail to the chief
He's the one we all say "Hail" to.
We all say "Hail"
'Cause he keeps himself so clean!
He's got the power,
That's why he's in the shower..."
