Another quotes game!

    Hello, friends! I have made the executive decision that it is HIGH time we have another game. So! Quotes this time, people. Below are 14 quotes, and your job is to guess which movie each comes from! One point for naming the movie, and another for naming the character who said it. Sound good? Good.


Character 1: "Say it again."
Character 2: "I'm sorry."
Character 1: "No, the part where you said my name."


Character 1: "I disapprove of his very existence. I even considered ending it myself on more than one occasion, but self control got the better of me."


Character 1: "Am I the only one who's embarrassed?"


Character 1: "At present, I am eating muffins because I am unhappy. Besides, I'm particularly fond of muffins."


Character !: "Yes, I love her! I love her with every breath I breathe!"


Character 1: "Beef, yes. Roast beef. It's the Swedish term for beef that is roasted."


Character 1: "What is that, sir?"
Character 2: "I very much fear it is a radish, carved by my spouse into an ornamental form."


Character 1: "I wouldn't want you to examine me."
Character 2: "Why not?"
Character 1: "Because I like you so much."
Character 2: "I wouldn't want to examine you either."
Character 1: "Why not?"
Character 2: "Because I like you so much."


Character 1: "You're the reason why I get up in the morning! You're the reason why Mary Kay is having such a good year! You're the reason why I don't look like some blob from a horror movie!"


Character 1:"That was some mighty fine a-pickin' and a-singing', boys! I tell you what, you all come in here, you sign these here papers, and I'm gonna give you-- ten dollars apiece!"


Character 1: "Do I know you?"
Character 2: "No, but I'm gonna know you!"


Character 1: "The chauffeur's gone, I could always drive the car."
Character 2: "Preferably over the chauffeur."


Character 1: "Only chance at an education that boy's got is listenin' to me talk."
Character 2: "What kind of education is that?"


Character 1: "I think that if you have a bad taste in your mouth, you spit it out-- don't keep constantly swallowing it back."


Answers next Saturday! 


  1. Hello Emma! I thought it would be fun to join in this time, if I may...:). I didn't recognise too many...but here are my answers to the few I do know!

    #1 - 'Ever After'. Character 1, Danielle; character 2, Prince Henry

    #5 - Belle. Character - Mr Davinier...don't know if I spelt that right:)

    Hope you're having a good weekend!
    Lots of love!

  2. 1 Danielle and Prince Henry in Ever After.
    2 Doc Holiday in Wyatt Earp.
    3 Branson in Downton Abbey.
    4 The guy in The Importance of Being Earnest.
    6 Count Olaf in A Series of Unfortunate Events.
    7 Somebody and Captain Brown in Cranford.
    8 Joe Black and the girl in Meet Joe Black.
    10 The radio guy in O Brother Where Art Thou
    12 Sir Richard Carlisle and Lady Mary.
    13 Gus and Woodrow(?) in Lonesome Dove.
    14 Barbara Spooner in Amazing Grace.

  3. Number 4 is from "The Importance of Being Earnest" and said by Algernon Montcreif.

    Number 7 is from "Return to Cranford". The first character is William Buxton and the second is Capt. Brown.

    Number 14 is from "Amazing Grace" and is said by Barbara Spooner.

    Number 1 and several others sound familiar but I cannot place them right now. Challenges like this are so much fun!

  4. Here are my (Peter's) guesses:
    6- Count Olaf, Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events
    9- Mrs. Couch, Fried Green Tomatoes
    10- Lund Wezy, O Brother Where Art Thou
    12- ?, Downton Abbey
    14- Barbara Wilberforce, Amazing Grace
    p.s. Sadie shouldn't be allowed to win

  5. Is #7 from Return to Cranford by any chance? I only saw that once, but the quote somehow seems familiar...

    And is #4 from an adaptation of The Importance of Being Earnest?

  6. #1 Ever After (Henry to Danielle at the end)
    #6 A Series of Unfortunate Events ( Count Olaf to the kids while they're cleaning)
    #9 Fried Green Tomatoes (Evelyn to Idgie)

  7. Shoot. I know hardly any of these;)

    #1: Ever After

    #4: The Importance of Being Earnest

    #5: Belle (THAT. PART. THOUGH.)

    #7: Return to Cranford

    #12: Downton Abbey?

    #14: Amazing Grace

  8. Oh, and your new header is lovely!:D

    1. Oh, and by the way, don't you recognize quote #13? ;-P

    2. Oops, I didn't realize that I'm supposed to guess the characters, too. Here we go again!

      #1: Danielle de Babarac and Henri

      #4: Algernon Moncrieff

      #5: John Davinier <3

      #12: Hmm...I'm gonna guess Mary or Sybil Crawley or the Dowager Countess, and Lord Crawley? (Or is he Lord Grantham? I'm so confused...)

      #13: Oh, it...maybe Secondhand Lions, Hub and Garth, or Lonesome Dove, Woodrow and Gus? That's all I can think of;-P

      (Oh, and since you were so sweet and gave me a second chance on one...I'm pretty sure you know #2 of the current game on my blog. Maybe you should give it another try:-P )

  9. I hardly know ANY of these. :-D Well, okay maybe two or three.
    4 is the Importance of Being Earnest - Algy says it.
    5 - Little Dorrit, John Chivery?
    6 - Horation Hornblower???
    7 - Captain Brown, Return to Cranford
    12 - Downton? - is Violet Crawley one of the characters, talking about Tom? Ha.

    I could guess a few others, but sheesh, I ain't sure. :-/

    Anyway, I'm commenting about your header. Because it's GORGEOUS, and you have to be aware of it. :-)
    By the way, I miss have the comment box in the pop-up thingy. Especially for games. :-P

  10. Beautiful header! Secondhand lions is wonderful:)

    1. Thank you, Faith! I agree, Secondhand Lions is absolutely delightful. It's one of my favorite movies. :-)

    2. Isn't #13 from secondhand lions?

      1- Hub
      2- Garth

  11. So. I have a bit of confessing to do here, Emma. :-) I have been reading your blog a long time (years?) and I must say it's one of my very favourites. Every post you write I just inwardly scream "Yes that is SO me!" and you have such a way with words! I suppose I should tell you something about myself. ;) Well, I'm a leetle younger than yourself, a Christian, Australian, homeschooler, in a family of 8, I am a bookworm, a story and poetry writer, and an extrovert. I also love music - it's a big passion of my family. :) Les Miserables is my favourite musical ever, Phantom of the Opera coming second and Eponine would be my dream role too, so when I read your post I was so thrilled for you! I'm not hugely into western stuff, but my sisters are and I do enjoy it every now and then. Hidalgo is one of my favourites, and I am super keen to watch True Grit sometime soon, thanks to you. :D Also, ARCHIE KENNEDY!! I have seen the Hornblower series, enjoy them but Archie is my favourite, definitely. :D There really is too much to say in one comment, but I will just add that the reason I have never commented before is a pathetic one. :P I only recently found out I could comment without a blog, and I thought your blog was always *ahem* so superior I would feel so weird writing on it. *sheepish grin* So, I will leave you in peace and continue to try my hand at your game - although I don't know a whole lot of them. :)
    #1: Ever After! (That used to be one of my favourite movies - until I saw the recent Cinderella. It's still a nice one, though.) Danielle is Character 1 and Henry is Character 2. :)
    #5: I'm guessing this is John Chivery off Little Dorrit?! I have only watched the movie once (I'm going to again soon!) and I read the book and loved it. It sounds like something he'd say. ;)
    I'm just going to have a complete stab in the dark at #13 just for fun. I'll say Lonesome Dove, but I don't know their names. :P (That's on my to-see list. :D)
    For number #14, I had a horrible time trying to remember. When I first read it, it sounded ghastly familiar and I could not remember where it was from. I thought about it all through today and finally decided I could hear Romola Garai saying it. And then I remembered - Amazing Grace. :D Barbara Spoon says it. My, I haven't seen that movie for ages, but I really like it, so I had better add it to my extremely long list. :P
    This comment is very long, but I suppose you don't mind those kind. ;)

  12. Miss Meg March,

    How nice to meet you! I enjoyed your long comment immensely; I'm so glad you finally got around to introducing yourself! (And don't feel bad-- before I had a blog, I never knew any old person could comment without having some sort of special privileges-- we were all there once. ;-))

    And you're an Archie Kennedy fan too! *squeals* I'm sorry, he's mine. ;-P

    Ever After used to be one of my favorites as well. My sisters just watched it the other night, and I was reminded how much I still like it. I haven't seen the new Cinderella, but I want to!

    Lonesome Dove is my favorite western, so....yeah, watch it! It's epic.

    Thanks for playing my game, and for your comment-- I'm really delighted to know you. :-)


  13. Emma, (by the way, I have the same middle name! :D)
    Thank you for your sweet comment, it really made my day. :-)
    Oh, I hope you can see Cinderella soon - it's scrumptious! I saw it twice at the cinemas and loved every bit of it. :-)
    Well, I really want to watch Lonesome Dove but I can't seem to find it anywhere! :-/ I have looked through YouTube and other places I know but I can't really find it. I don't think my library has it either. >:-/ Do you where I could possibly find it?
    Your welcome, and thanks for the game. I love quote games, but I think you've seen quite a few movies I haven't, although I'm sure it's vice versa. :-)
    Have a nice day!
    ~Miss Meg March

    1. Miss Meg,

      You have the same middle name? Sweet! ;-)

      Hmm. Well, Lonesome Dove is pretty common over here-- most libraries have it, and movie stores. I know the company Critic's Choice has it, not too pricey, so you could probably order it from there if you REALLY want to watch it. (Let me just say, it's totally worth owning, in my opinion.)

      Yeah, I have seen a lot of movies! But I'm sure you've seen ones I haven't, too.


  14. Oh, and pardon me, I just realized I wrote Barbara Spooner's name as if it was a utensil you eat with. :-P Ahem. How embarrassing. (I don't blame you if you laughed when you read it.) Sorry, I had to fix that after I realized. :-P
    ~Miss Meg March

    1. Haha. You know, I didn't even notice it until you corrected yourself. How embarrassing!

  15. Well, I have a few guesses, a very few. Some of these sound so familiar too!

    #1. Ever After, character 1: Danielle, character 2: Prince Henry

    #4. The Importance of Being Earnest, Algernon Moncrief

    #5. Wives & Daughters, character 1: Roger Hamley?

    #7. Return to Cranford, character 1: Jem Hearne?, character 2: Captain Brown

    #12. Downton Abbey, character 1: Lord Grantham?, character 2: Lady Violet

    #14. This one in a real stumper because I can hear a ladies voice saying it and I had two different actresses voices in my head (Rosamund Pike & Keeley Hawes) but now I'm almost sure it is from Amazing Grace, spoken by Romola Garai as Barbara Spooner!

  16. Hello Emma!
    Becca and I have tagged you for an award!

  17. The only one I know off the top of my head is #1...EVER AFTER. I LOVE THAT MOVIE. It is such a good movie. XD "Go...catch a chicken." (rofl) Anyways, Character 1 is Danielle, "Say it again" Character two is Henry, "I'm sorry" and yeah. XD :D This is a cool game!

  18. I have no idea what any of these but #4 are from, but most of them are so highly entertaining (and a couple are teasingly familiar) that I can't wait to see the answers!


I'd love it if you'd drop me a line or two! I always enjoy receiving comments from readers and friends. I ask that you please keep your comments clean and God-honoring, and please don't write anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to read. Also, if you are commenting under anonymous, please do leave your name (or some sort of moniker so that you aren't totally nameless). Thank you so much and have a lovely day!
