Obscure Movie Quote, Part Two

Updated with answers.  Purplish is correct.  Orange is still waiting for friends.  Because orange is the colour of loneliness (ref TBBT).

Hello again!

I have about 17 things that I should be writing (conservative estimate) and probably 26 other things in general that call out to be done, but I'm tired (see other non-written posts for details).  So instead, let's play a game again!

In this game, I post what I consider to be lesser-known quotes from movies.  You list as many as you can in the comments section, but without cheating.  Today we will have some special bonus quotes which are from books.  Ooh, fancy!

1.  "I got gum on my seat.  Gum!"  Speed

2.  "I won't think about that now, I'll think about it tomorrow.  After all, tomorrow is another day!" Gone With the Wind

3.  "I now pronounce you man and wife.  Proceed with the execution." The African Queen

4.  "We were one date away from a Greek tragedy." Soapdish

5.  "There was another Bill.  An evil Bill.  And I killed him." Twister

6.  "Oh, Morgan.  Why did you make me shoot you?  I said I would if you brought those sheep on my land." Montana

7.  "Bad dates." Indian Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark

8.  "Name one thing we're going to need this stupid [expletive deleted] rope for." The Boondock Saints

9.  "Oh Jerry, don't lets ask for the moon.  We've got the stars."  Now Voyager

10.  "Why couldn't it be 'follow the butterflies'"? Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

11.  "Oh, you both have layers...What about cake? Everybody loves cake." Shrek

12.  "There's not a day goes by I don't feel regret. Not because I'm in here, or because you think I should. I look back on the way I was then: a young, stupid kid who committed that terrible crime. I want to talk to him. I want to try and talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are. But I can't. That kid's long gone and this old man is all that's left. I got to live with that." The Shawshank Redemption

13.  [Sung] "And it hurt that my friends never stood downwind." The Lion King

14.  "Whoops. Look at me, your very own Greek statue." My Big Fat Greek Wedding

15.  "I want to reward you with five minutes uninterrupted eye contact." Baby Mama

16.  "Never trust a bunny." Hoodwinked!

17.  "I gave you my mind, blindly." The Phantom of the Opera

18.  --"She told me about the letters."
     --"Letters? What letters?"
     --"The letters. She told me about them.  I know all about the letters.  How do you think I know? She told me.  That's how I found out." The Man Who Knew Too Little

19.  "Listen! Do you smell something?" Ghostbusters

20.  "Do I look like I own tights?" Step Up

21.  "Are you okay? I mean, be a man.  Rub some dirt in it." She's the Man

22.  "And we was like peas and carrots again." Forrest Gump

23.  "I'm not much of a dancer, but this looks like screw in the lightbulb and pat the dog." Bride and Prejudice

24.  [Sung] "Home is behind, the world ahead... And there are many paths to tread. Through shadow, to the edge of night, until the stars are all alight... Mist and shadow, cloud and shade, all shall fade... all... shall... fade... " LOTR: Return of the King

25.  "Do I get my meat?" Must Love Dogs

26.  "I'm Benny, he's the Jets." 27 Dresses

27.  "I know a's funny because the squirrel dies." Up

BONUS:  Obscure Book Quotes

28.  It struck me as pretty ridiculous to be called Mr Darcy and to stand on your own looking snooty at a party.  It's like being called Heathcliff and insisting on spending the entire evening in the garden, shouting "Cathy" and banging your head against a tree. Bridget Jones' Diary

29. A last note from your narrator.  I am haunted by humans. The Book Thief

30.  It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in position of good fortune, must be in want of a wife. Pride and Prejudice.

  8. 10 was boggling me, sorry I got it wrong, it's very obvious now that I read the answer!! I can hear Ron saying it.

  9. (just Ev adding in some that people have missed)

    2. Gone with the Wind
    6 and 7 I'm sure I know...
    14 My Big Fat Greek Wedding
    15 Baby Mama

    Is 9 from State Fair?

    This was fun--I knew LOTS but not all--some I haven't even seen! Tell me, dear, what was 8? I'm sure I know it...

  10. I *should* have known "Must Love Dogs"--goodness knows I've seen it before!n :)

  11. I have had a quote in my head for quite some time and pretty sure it's got to be from some random movie. The quote (if I'm even quoting it right)is what I believe to be spoken by an Asian guy (maybe/maybe not). It seems that he was being bullied like while working as a store clerk or something. Anyway, the quote (as far as how I hear it in my head is, "That's ah for you!" The line may even be repeated by same character a moment later. It's become a silly catch-phrase between me and my friend. Driving me crazier than having a song stuck in my head, though! Anybody got a clue? I'll be astonished and relieved if anybody can actually identify where this is from. Thanks! - Doug
