Another Quotes Game!

   Wow, it's been more than a month since I did a game! Sorry about that! Just a simple quotes quiz for this week. I've done a few of these games before, and I always love playing quotes quizzes so I hope you enjoy this one. I promise I will try not to make them too difficult. :-) Also, most of these quotes I've just gotten from memory, so I apologize if there are a few wee mistakes. If you notice anything I've got wrong, do tell me.
   Alrighty, so to play all you have to do is guess what period drama the quote comes from, and the name of the character(s) who says it. Five points for each correctly guessed period drama and an additional point for each character named. Ready, set, go!

 Quote #1
Character 1: "What time is it?"
Character 2: "This is your 3:00 AM dose."
Character 1: "So, cousin, you're waking me up to give me medicine to help me sleep."
Character 2: "Ah, so now you've taken on the medical profession, as well as everyone else."

Quote #2
Character 1: "I'd forgotten what a good game this is. How long does it go on for?"
Character 2: "Oh, ages."
Character 1: "Oh, goody goody!"

Quote #3
Character 1: "You talk easily of hours, sir. Have you any notion what an hour is to a man who is choking for want of air?"

Quote #4
Character 1: "There's nothing wrong with doctors. We all need doctors."
Character 2: "We all need crossing sweepers and draymen too. It doesn't mean we have to dine with them."

Quote #5
Character 1: "Quittin' time!"
Character 2: "Who says it's quittin' time?"
Character 1: "I says it's quittin' time!"
Character 2: "I's the foreman. I's the one who says when it's quittin' time at           . Quittin' time!"

Quote #6
Character 1: "           , where is your heart?"
Character 2: "What do you know of my heart? What do you know of anything but your own suffering? For weeks,               , I've had this pressing on me, without being at liberty to speak of it to a single creature. And believe me, had I not been sworn to secrecy, I could have produced proof enough of a broken heart, even for you."

Quote #7
Character 1: "When were you last in the West Indies, Mr.                ?"
Character 2: "Sir, I---"
Character 1: "Answer the question, when were you last in the West Indies?"
Character 2: "I regret, sir--"
Character 1: "Never. You were never in the West Indies, that's when you were in the West Indies, Mr.                   ."

Quote #8
Character 1: "All the unmarried women of our set, and believe me, there are many, they sit around all day gossiping and unaccountably bursting into tears. But you have done something. You've written a book. I warn you, I am prepared to like you very much."

Quote #9
Character 1: "Meat, one; vegetables, two; beer, three...what was four? Oh! Pudding! He was four!"

Quote #10
Character 1: "I'm sorry I said anything about it now. I'll try to find a more agreeable piece of news. Old Marjorie at the lodge is dead."

Quote #11
Character 1: "I wish I could tell you how lonely I am. How cold and harsh it is here. Everywhere there is conflict and unkindness. I think God has forsaken this place. I think I've seen hell. It's white-- it's snow white."

Quote #12
Character 1: "Can't be too careful in foreign climes."
Character 2: "It's only Wales."
Character 1: "It's still foreign!"


Have fun! :-)


  1. 1- William Wilberforce and cousin Henry in Amazing Grace.
    2- Violet and Isobel in Downton Abbey. You got that one wrong.
    3- William Dorrit in Little Dorrit.
    4- Edith and Mary in Downton Abbey.
    5- ?
    6- Marianne and Elinor in Sense and Sensibility.
    7- Captain Sawyer and Lt. Buckland in The Mutiny.
    8- Miss Potter?
    9- Mr. Sloppy in Our Mutual Friend.
    10- Persuasion?
    11- Jane Eyre? I don't know.
    12- Mr. Anson and the other guy in The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill but Came Down a Mountain.

  2. Oh good I love these games! Now let's see...
    1) I think it is from Amazing Grace with the William Wilberforce and William Pitt
    2) No idea
    3) Nope
    4) Uh oh I don't seem to be doing well
    5) No...
    6) Sense and Sensibility Marianne and Elinor
    7) No idea
    8) Oh! This quote sounds good! Where is this from?
    9) No idea
    10) haha that sounds interesting too
    11) North and South Margaret Hale
    12) This sounds funny too... I may need to may a list of things to see when the answers come out!

  3. Hmm... I don't know many of these.

    2. From Downton Abbey; character 1 - Dowager(I've never seen it, I just recognize this quote from Pinterest)

    6. S&S '95; Ch 1 - Marianne; Ch 2 - Eleanor

    8. Miss Potter; Millie!! :)

    9. Our Mutual Friend; Sloppy

    10. Wives and Daughters; Lord Cumnor

    11. North and South; Margaret Hale

  4. What fun!

    #5 is from Gone With the Wind, but I have no idea who says it, other than slaves on the plantation, one of whom is the foreman.

    I think #6 is from Sense and Sensibility, said by Elinor and Marianne Dashwood.

    #8 sounds like it's from Miss Potter.

    Several others are familiar, but not enough for me to make a good guess.

  5. Hi! I love you blog, but have never commented before! I am not familiar with about half of the films and things you talk about (mainly Horatio Hornblower- and I can't figure out how to get hold of it either!), I am afraid I will do rather badly at this quiz. However, I will give it a shot!
    #1 Amazing Grace? With Character 1 being William Wilberforce, and I don't know what the other one was called, but Mr Wilberforce was staying with him.
    #2 Downton Abbey. Character 1 is everybody's favourite Lady Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham, and Character 2 is Isobel Crawley.
    #5 Gone With the Wind.Character 1 is a farmhand (a slave, right?), and Character 2 is the Foreman.
    #6 Now, I've probably got this horrifically wrong, but is it 'Sense and Sensibility'? Character 1 is Marianne and Character 2 is Elinor?
    #8 Miss Potter! Oh, how I love Miss Potter! And Character 1 would be Millie Warne!
    And I am afraid that I do not know the others. However, when you reveal the answers I will try to watch them as you seem to have excellent taste in films!
    Thank you very much for putting together this delightful quiz!

  6. OK, sweetie, I had hoped my games would have influenced you to do one as well.
    I'm not good at this, I warn you. But I HAVE to try, of course.
    (Another warning: I'm going to guess a lot.)
    1. Amazing Grace (you just watched that:-)
    2. Hahaha. That's MY quote. Downton Abbey between Violet and Alice, I mean Isobel.
    3. No idea. Probably a movie with Jane Seymour. Let me guess. Scarlett Pimpernel? That's a pure guess.
    4. Another doctor one. Sorry Emma. I do not know.
    5. Another guess... Maybe the Waltons? Or ummm... a Jane Seymour movie...??? SOB.. I am so bad at this.
    6. Ah! I know THIS one. Elinor and Marianne in zzzzzbility. The good one.
    7. Huh?
    Don't know all the rest except for quote 11 which miiiggght be Matthew Crawley???? Or not?????
    Excuse my not knowing stuff.
    Your Alice

  7. This one is tricky! Most of these quotes sound so familiar but I can only place a few.

    1. Matthew & Lady Mary in Downton Abbey, Season 2
    3. Mr. Dorrit, Little Dorrit
    6. Elinor & Marianne in Sense and Sensibility 1995
    8. Miss Warne in Miss Potter?
    9. Sloppy in Our Mutual Friend
    11. Margaret Hale in North & South

    Yeah, just a few. This was fun, looking forward to the answers! :)
