Coffee and Quotes - Giveaway

I love movies and I love coffee. Well maybe LOVE is too strong of a word. I enjoy movies and I enjoy coffee.

To celebrate 250 lovely followers I am going to do a giveaway. (Bear with me. I have no idea what I am doing here.) I wanted to make one entry contigent upon a movie quiz. But I don't know how to hide your answers from each other.

SO, Just answer the darn quiz for fun, honors style and then leave me a comment telling me you follow and how many quiz questions you answered correctly. I will pick a random number on Tuesday morning as the winner of.........

..........A Starbucks GC - because I enjoy coffee. I enjoy coffee while I blog and so in a way, if you think about it, sometimes it is like chatting with ya'll over a cup of coffee. Except that I can't see you and you can't tell how many times I have gotten up to go to the bathroom. (If you don't live near a Starbucks you can pick something else.)

Here is the quiz part. Please tell me the movie the following lines came from. (These are my family's favorite lines and can be heard as a regular part of our conversations.) Deadline - Midnight Monday, July 5.

(Edit to correct numbering.)
1. "You shut your mouth when you're talking to me."

2. "If he gets up, we'll all get up. It'll be anarchy."

3. "Looks great...little full....lotta sap."

4. "In the morning, I'm making waffles!"

5. "Candlesticks make nice gift. Ok? Let's get two."

6. "Nooooo touchy."

7. "You'll shoot your eye out."

8. "I put in a dollar, I won a car. I put in a dollar, I won a car. I put in a dollar, I won a car."

9. "Why don't you make like a tree, and get out of here?"

10. "Why so serioussss?"

11. "You're killin' me, Smalls!"

Bonus** "Egypt? Easter, Easter Bunny, Easter parade........" (Ok. I don't think ANYONE will get this one and if someone does that person is officially as weird as my little brother.)

Answers are at the bottom of this post.

I really appreciate everyone who has read and/or followed this blog, even those friends and family members who were forced. I also love reading all your smart and funny comments. Thanks you have made my foray into blogging such a blast.

1. Wedding Crashers
2. The Breakfast Club
3. National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
4. Shrek
5. Bull Durham (I don't know why I have 2 #4s.)
6. Emperor's New Groove
7. A Christmas Story
8. National Lampoons Vegas Vacation
9. Back to the Future
10. The Dark Knight
11. The Sandlot
** Bonus - My weird brother has so generously volunteered his copy of this movie as a prize for the first person who correctly identifies the quote. (It's used - just so you know.)

We don't have very sophisticated taste in movies do we? And one last thing, I had asked The Coach and the kids to suggest quotes and now I can't get them to QUIT saying the quotes. Oi vey!


  1. Well I failed at that game. Out of the entire list I've only seen The Emperor's Groove...and I didn't get the quote. :)

  2. i got nothing, but I'm really bad at remembering...well, just about anything. I do follow, and I love Starbucks!

  3. I blog over coffee too I know what your saying. I got 3 right according to your answer guide, but I think I should get 4 right as #4 is said by Donkey in the first shrek movie. I use that line all the time at my house so that's why I know, but perhaps it was first used in Bill Durham (haven't seen that one.) Hope you have a happy 4th.

  4. Thanks Amy! I fixed that numbering problem! And of course you get credit for the correct answer. :)

  5. Well I ended up with three right (#2,#7 & #9). Woke up my daughter and asked her (forgot the rule to never wake a sleeping teen before 10 am)after a few mumbles and groans she knew most of the others. If I win she is expecting a caramel something-or-other coffee.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Wow, I got like 5 of them right!!The Midnight Madness one my husband just told me and he says for me to write. "Harold,There aren't any cookies left!"
    I have never seen that movie but my husband is laughing his butt off so I am guessing it must be funny!

  7. I was afraid to post because that would mean I'd have to admit I knew none of those quotes!!

  8. Well I'm not a movie buff but I did get #7 right only because hubby LOVES that movie and we watch (well, hubby has to have it on at least) the marathon that comes on TBS every Christmas..yes please feel free to pity me..ha! I'm a new follower and can't even remember how I found you (pretty sure from someone's blog)and I'm really enjoying your blog! Happy 4th!

  9. Entering! Because I looooove coffee :) :) And for the record, I only knew the answer to 3 of them!

  10. I got six but should have gotten them all because I've seen and love all of those movies. I blame it on pregnancy brain, lol. I've been a follower for awhile now, your blog always makes me laugh.

  11. I've seen most of those movies but sadly I could only recall #9 off the top of my head : ( I guess I have poor retentions skills, Teach! or maybe I could just use another cup of coffee...
    But I'd continue following you without the coffee!

  12. Ooo...did I make it? It's 11:06pm here on the east coast. I'm gonna be honest....I got 5 of them right. LOL I love all of those movies though! And definitely love Starbucks! YUMMY! Congrats on all your followers too!
