View Full Version : Name That Quotation! [Game]

This one has probably come up before, but I didn't see any like this currently running and I'm too tired to research it properly, so here we go...

The rules are simple: Post a quotation from a show/book/movie/whatever that you find memorable (the line has to be memorable; where it comes from need not be). Ideally, it should be unique to that particular series/etc, but it doesn't have to be, so long as it's not something you will see in a million other productions. It DOES, however, need to be completely devoid of context. No dropping hints unless it's been a bunch of posts with nobody taking any (correct) guesses, or upon request. :angel:

ID others' quotations when you can (just the series/franchise name is sufficient, even if it's used multiple times across different iterations - e.g. "Superman" for "Up, up, and awaaaaaay!"), but if you post in here, your comment MUST include a fresh quotation. Most of all, as usual, have fun! :D

============================

I'll start it out.

There are two "z"s in "Hazzard" (otherwise it's just something dangerous). Yep, that's something Cooter routinely said over the CB.

“But here's some advice, boy. Don't put your trust in revolutions. They always come around again. That's why they're called revolutions.”
Was going to say that was from the move "Under Seige", Tommy Lee Jones' character.

I don't know your latest one.

"Lo there do I see my father; Lo there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers; Lo there do I see the line of my people, back to the beginning. Lo, they do call me, they bid me take my place among them, in the halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live forever."

Is it from Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton? Or maybe the movie version, but it had a different title.

Oh God. Did I shut down the game? I'm so sorry.

Here's another, possibly less obscure, one.

“The true secret in being a hero lies in knowing the order of things. The swineherd cannot already be wed to the princess when he embarks on his adventures, nor can the boy knock on the witch's door when she is already away on vacation. The wicked uncle cannot be found out and foiled before he does something wicked. Things must happen when it is time for them to happen. Quests may not simply be abandoned; prophecies may not be left to rot like unpicked fruit; unicorns may go unrescued for a very long time, but not forever. The happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.”

PW, GK -- Yep! It's the Wasted Youth "speech" (there's also a song ML does by the same name, unrelated to it). Technically, it's said/performed by his songwriter, Jim Steinman, but it normally only shows up on Meat Loaf's albums and live shows, so Y'all get credit for that ;)
