"I don't want to be a viking."
I'm curious how quick this one will go...
11-15-2005, 09:31 AM
Erik the Viking?
11-15-2005, 10:33 AM
heh... nope. The movie actually has NOTHING to do with vikings... but is one of the most quotable films ever made. I'm not sure how many people on here have seen it.. but I'll start dropping more quotes/hints pretty soon.

ok, another quote.. this one may be a bit paraphrased ( can't remember which room number it was, or how many bottles).. but should sound familar if you've seen the movie.
"The couple in room 212 would like two bottles of champaign and one boy scout uniform."

I know I've heard this one before. Guessing Four Rooms?
11-15-2005, 05:13 PM
nope, here's a third quote:
"I don't want to call a key, I want my car cabs!!"
It's an older film, but a classic. Dead give-a-way quotes come next... I didn't think this movie was THIS obscure.

This has been bugging me all day cause I know I've seen this one before. That second one sounds like Bill Murray, Stripes?
11-16-2005, 07:02 AM
getting closer...as in, it is a comedy.
Here's another somewhat paraphrased quote:
"Oh Michael, Whatever are we going to do? I'm thirty seven and you're only twelve!"

this film is getting a bit stale: here's a givaway quote:
Man1: "I've got something at the striptease. I help the girls dress and undress."
Man2: "Nice job."
Man1: "Twenty francs a week."
Man2: "Not very much."
Man1: "It's all I can afford."

The Tin Drum?
11-17-2005, 08:13 AM
nope. ok someone just cheat and google the quotes already.
this quote is dead.
this one should work:
"What in the name of all that's gracious is a semi-virgin?"
how bout some other clues that might give us a chance of getting it if we haven't seen/remember the film?

alright, it's older, was a commercial flop, and stars 3 VERY famous actors.
of those three main actors-
-One spent a good portion of his life a drunk elitist actor. He's 'the finest man who ever breathed' (another hint). He shows up in movies from time to time today looking generally confused, but preforms well.
-One was considered one of the best comic actors of the 60s. He was probably most famous for his detective comedies though.. He died in the 80s, not too old.
-One turned into a slightly neurotic director/writer/actor combo guy. He wrote and starred in this movie, which I consider far better than any of his 'serious' work. He has a thing for marrying his ex wives adopted children.
well, 2 of those are Woody Allen and Peter Sellers ... lets assume the third is David Niven ...
edit ... actually, just noticed the "wrote and starred" bit. Hmmm. Dunno. And i'm sure David Niven's dead
no, lets assume the first is Peter O'Toole who isn't dead and DOES look confused all the time ...
What's New Pussycat!

DAMN SOOOOOOo close Danr. I consider Casino Royale to be the sisterfilm of this one, in spirit. "the finest man who ever breathed" quote was from that film.
/images/graemlins/smile.gif You got the three actors though. Allen, sellers, and Toole
sellers = dead, toole = confused, allen = writer.

OH you guessed it!!
i didnt see the tail of your second post!
awesome, youre up!
*posted at the same time*
see? Clues are more fun than boring old quotes
11-17-2005, 04:43 PM
Hahahaha, clues can be fun, but it's no longer a quote game persay... it becomes a trivia game.. Interesting, but doesn't keep things moving all the time.
But then again... more quotes don't really keep things moving either...this thread being case in point. Heh.
Anyway, YOU'RE UP!
