Movie Quote Meme - Courtesy of chebutykin  
I love movies, and anyone who's ever been forced to spend time with me in person knows I love quotes. So I love this idea!

1. Pick 15 of your favorite movies. In fact, ones you like enough to own.
2. List your favorite quotes from those movies.
3. You there, reading: reply and guess which flick you think each quote is from. I'll let you know if you're right and give you credit for being a quote-freak like me. No cheating with google!
4. Entertainment ensues!

(Some of these may be off by a little bit, as I'm mostly going from memory ;))

1. "You can imagine where it goes from here." "He fixes the cable?" (tugrik then feren privately, then chebutykin below)

2. In 1945, on the night of September 21, I died. (melskunk)

3. "Drowning. Now there's a way to go." "I can't swim." "Well you don't have to fucking swim, that's the whole point!" (chebutykin)

4. QANTAS never crashed. (chebutykin)

5. Is he always this funny, or only on days he's wanted for murder? (enveri, screened, then melskunk)

6. Here's to swimmin' with bow-legged women! (feren privately, melskunk below)

7. It's a wonderful defense mechanism. You don't dare kill it. (chebutykin)

8. Oh, I just think I'm gonna barf. ... Well, that passed, now I'm hungry again. (chebutykin)

9. The ball is round. The game lasts 90 minutes. Everything else is just theory. (chebutykin)

10. That's a nice knife. Goodbye, Mr. Burton. (feren privately, then chebutykin)

11. "She just looks like Lana Turner." "She is Lana Turner." (enveri)

12. It's not my fault that Buttle's heart condition didn't show up on Tuttle's file! (feren and enveri privately, then skorzy)

13. "Qualifications?" "Rape, murder, arson and rape!" "You said rape twice." "...I like rape." (melskunk)

14. We called him Mother Superior on account of the length of his habit. (enveri screened, then chebutykin)

15. Put your trust in the Lord; your ass belongs to me. (enveri, screened, then melskunk)

[Edit 7:50pm: Okay, wow. tugrik got #1 almost as soon as I hit submit, and feren got like half of them immediately. Not gonna post those answers yet, since this thing's only been up for a minute ;)]

[Edit 8:03pm: enveri also got about half of them, but I've screened those comments to give others a fair chance to guess without the answers being below. I figure with her and Feren, we pretty much share a video collection, and they get a pretty big advantage ;)]

[Edit 8:24pm: Okay, with a mighty salvo from chebutykin, all movies have been guessed. Don't read the comments if you don't wanna see the answers. I've posted above the first one to get each ;)]

Though to be fair, #15 had a very similar quote in Full Metal Jacket. But I think there it was something like, "Your soul belongs to Jesus; but your ass belongs to The Corps!"

... I was just going to say!

Then #15 must be "Shawshank Redemption", which was my choice #2

A-yep! :)
