1) I'm not even supposed to be here! Dante to everyone, Clerks. Guessed by chickadilly  

2) I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. Harry Burns to Sally Albright, When Harry Met Sally. Guessed by chickadilly  

3)  *Everything*! Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for *you*! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations of me. Isn't that generous? Jareth the Goblin King to Sarah Williams, Labyrinth Guessed by chickadilly  

4) How poignant it will be on that inevitable night, when she shows up on my door in tears and rags! Miserable and lonely, repentant and contrite! Shall I take her in, or hurl her to the wolves? Give her kindness, or the treatment she deserves? Will I take her back, or THROW THE BAGGAGE OUT? Well, I'm a most forgiving man. The sort who never could, ever would, take a position and staunchly never budge. A *most* forgiving man... But, I shall NEVER take her back! If she were crawling on her KNEES! Let her promise to atone, let her shiver, let her moan, I'll slam the door and let the hellcat FREEZE! Marry Freddy! HA! Henry Higgin on the subject of Eliza Doolittle, My Fair Lady. Guessed by sasusc  

5) And don't fall down 'cause you're just going to have to get up again! Lois Lane to Clark Kent/Superman, Superman II: The Donner Cut. guessed by trekkie6  

6) Mmm... Murdered by pirates, heart turned out and eaten, meet Victoria... I can't quite decide which sounds more fun...  Yvaine to Tristan, Stardust. Guessed by chickadilly 

7) Absinthe is the aphrodisiac of the self. The green fairy who lives in the absinthe wants your soul. But you are safe with me. Prince Dracula to Mina Harker, Bram Stoker's Dracula. Guessed by anissa7118and partly guessed by sasusc

8) You know, I used to be in the music business, but now I'm what you might call retired. It's a refined name for bum.

9) A movie! That's your problem! You don't want to be in love. You want to be in love in a movie. Becky to Annie Reed, Sleepless In Seattle Guessed by chickadilly  

10) Death before dishonor. Besides, have you tried running in one of these things? It's a real bitch.

11) Paulie, listen to me ok, because I'm going to say this once and never, ever again. I will never love anyone the way that I love you. Never. You know that, and I know that, and I will die knowing that, ok? But it just can never... it just can never, ever, forever be. Do you understand? It just can never, ever, forever be.

12) That's not dancing. That's kicking her knickers up. And I bet if you asked her to, she'd kick her knickers off.  Shannon Christie, Far and Away. Guessed by bistyboo1974  

13) You will be different, sometimes you'll feel like an outcast, but you'll never be alone. You will make my strength your own. You will see my life through your eyes, as your life will be seen through mine. The son becomes the father and the father becomes the son. Kal-El to Jason, Superman Returns. guessed by quirky_circe   and chickadilly  

14) I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope. 'Red' Redding narrating the ending of The Shawshank Redemption. Guessed by sasusc  

15) In the heat of battle my father wove a tapestry of obscenities that as far as we know is still hanging in space over Lake Michigan. Ralphie, on his father the Furnace Fighter, A Christmas Story (which we will be watching this evening) Guessed by alphielj   and ellalou73

#13 is SR, of course. *loves Kal* that scene made up for a lot of sins, IMHO.
Lois: Jason Sniffleskalalanekent on December 18th, 2007 09:49 am (UTC)
I totally agree. That scene still chokes me up every time I watch it. It just makes you want to hug him and reassure him that he didn't screw up entirely. That that child really is real and that he really is the product of both he and Lois. OMG... *sighs and sniffle*

*high-fives* Awesome work, Tam!
Trekkie6trekkie6 on December 18th, 2007 08:01 am (UTC)
#5 is the Donner Cut, of course.

Now I *could* cheat and look up some of the others but that's no fun. Some did make me laugh though. Interesting choices, you.
Lois: Kal-El Lois Gotchakalalanekent on December 18th, 2007 09:50 am (UTC)
'Cause you knew I had to put one up for it. :D Oh, how I love that scene.

Good job, love!
Loony Loopy Lea Lovegoodchickadilly on December 18th, 2007 08:14 am (UTC)
That icon is awesome.

1.) Clerks
2.) When Harry Met Sally
3.) Labyrinth
4.) I should know this - it sounds very familar ... gah!
9.) Sleepless in Seattle?
13.) Superman Returns

Lois: Superman Lois LOLkalalanekent on December 18th, 2007 09:51 am (UTC)
Lea, you rock out, sweetie! Got all of those right in one fell swoop! Excellent!

8) You know, I used to be in the music business, but now I'm what you might call retired. It's a refined name for bum. Music & Lyrics? Not sure...

13) You will be different, sometimes you'll feel like an outcast, but you'll never be alone. You will make my strength your own. You will see my life through your eyes, as your life will be seen through mine. The son becomes the father and the father becomes the son. Well.. the difficulty in this one lies in trying to guess exactly which maovie you're getting at: STM, SMII or SR?
Lois: Kal-El Defying Destinykalalanekent on December 18th, 2007 09:53 am (UTC)
The first one is waaaay older than that, Maaike. Think old-school and a musical. ;)

And that wording, that exact wording is specific to SR. :D The advanatge to owning copies of all the scripts. *iz dork*

4. My Fair Lady! (How did I forget this movie when I did my meme?)

10. Dracula

14. The Shawshank Redemption

Lois: Clark Lois Caughtkalalanekent on December 18th, 2007 09:54 am (UTC)
Got the other two, Sam, but the guess for #10 was wrong. Look a little closer at the list. I think you'll spot the errror. ;)

I should have checked my Friends pages sooner, but I do know 15..that would be Ralphie in A Christmas Story, and what a great movie that is...
Lois: Superman Lois LOLkalalanekent on December 18th, 2007 08:21 pm (UTC)
That has been the Joos Family Christmas Movie since I was a child. Mom held out for It's A Wonderful Life, but our genetic sense of humor just doesn't mesh well with that one. ;)

15. A Christmas Story! LOVE this movie! OHhhhhhhhhhhhhh Fuuuuuuuuuddddddggggggggeeeeeeee! Except I didn't say fudge. I said the F dash dash dash word! The mother of all swears!
Lois: Kal-El Grinkalalanekent on December 18th, 2007 08:23 pm (UTC)
It was all over - I was dead. What would it be? The guillotine? Hanging? The chair? The rack? The Chinese water torture? Hmmph. Mere child's play compared to what surely awaited me.

Lois: Lois Ace Reporterkalalanekent on December 18th, 2007 08:25 pm (UTC)
I love that movie so much! I can't even remember a scene in it that I don't like. Although Stephen just makes me wanna kick his little English butt every time I see him on screen. It's like my reaction to Cal in Titanic. I think that's the only time I cussed out a character in a theater full of people...and got applause for it.

If no one else gets it, I woulda known # 7 even if you hadn't told me. Ah, movies with grand costumes and one seriously freaky wig on one of our favorite actors.
Lois: Lucy Kala Hugkalalanekent on December 19th, 2007 12:48 am (UTC)
Hey, love. Bored at work or something? All of your presents have been wrapped and I'm simutantaously (sp) trying to upload images and work on 12 Days.
