10 Favorite Movies to Quote

It’s Ten on Tuesday, and I’m twisting the prompt a tad. We’re supposed to list our 10 favorite movies to quote. I’ve got a list of the quotes. And I’ve got a list of the movies. Match them if you can. Too much trouble to sort it out? I’ll post the match-ups later today in the comments. Too much trouble to come back? Go check out others’ lists. Maybe they’ve made it easier.


1. “You talkin’ to me?”

2. “Go ahead, make my day.”

3. “Badges? We ain't got no badges! We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinking badges!”

4. “I see dead people.”

5. “They’re here.”

6. “I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

7. “May the Force be with you.”

8. “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

9. “I’ll be back.”

10. “Houston, we have a problem.”


A. Apollo 13

B. Network

C. Poltergeist

D. The Sixth Sense

E. Star Wars

F. Sudden Impact

G. Taxi Driver

H. The Terminator

I. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre

J. Wizard of Oz

How clever. Good mix of movies on your list. I'm proud to say that I knew them all except #3, but by process of elimination...

Great list! I use "we don't need no stinkin' ______" (fill in the blank) all the time. :)

Oh, let's go for trying to solve it :).

A: 10
C: 5
D: 4
E: 7
F: 2
G: 1
H: 9

Never seen wizard of Oz though and can't recall ever seeing treasure of sierra madre, network says me something but can't recall whether I've seen it or not.

So let's just guess here, 8 on Oz, 6 on serria and 3 on network. Probably all wrong, but we can always hope :P.

Excellent. I use Houston we have a problem frequently.

The game idea was great. Four stars to you.
Take care,

I use several of these all the time and forgot to even put them in my list! I guess I say them mindlessly....

All the time I'm saying, "We don't need no stinkin' _______!"

That was a fun list-you had good quick quotes. I can't be so precise. I have 1300 dvd's and I am not exagerating. I love everything.

Poltergeist will never get old.
