Just a few quotes to start your week off right. And, for added fun, I’m not telling you where they’re from… you’ll have to guess!

1. “Hard to get to… that’s a fact!”

2. “Me? I’m dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It’s the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they’re going to do something incredibly… stupid.”

3. “I’ve been asleep for 70 years. I think I’ve had enough rest.”

4. “The horse is too small, the jockey too big, the trainer too old, and I’m too dumb to know the difference.”

5. “If I was gonna shoot you, I’d shoot you in the face. Now go.”

6. ” I wouldn’t care if you lived in the Governor’s mansion. I’d still think you’re weird!”

7. “You build bridges, John. You have to go where the rivers are.”

8. “Faith. Yeah. God’s been real swell to me. I don’t mean no disrespect, preacher, but either he ain’t up there or he don’t like me very much.”

9. “You know what we get to do today, Brooks? We get to play baseball.”

10. “Hey, you know my dad collected ancient coins, from Rome, China, Siam, Persia… somehow they all ended up in a shoe box in New Jersey.”

No. 2 is Jack Sparrow
No. 3 has to be Captain America (but just guessing)
No. 4 is Charles Howard (Sea Biscuit)
No. 6 has to be October Sky
No. 7 is John Patterson’s Wife in Ghost and the Darkness
No. 8 seems like something similar to that Cowboy and Aliens Movie but just guessing
No. 9 must be “Field of Dreams” but can’t recall who Brooks is.
No. 10 just sounds like something Al Giardino or Riley Poole would say, but again just guessing.

No. 1 sounds like something Matthew McConnaughy would say
No. 5 sounds like Mal from Serenity.

How did I do?

1: Serenity
2: Pirates of the Caribbean 1
3: The Avengers… I think?
Okay, so I only know the first three. XD
I’m curious about where 5 and 8 are from. :)
This is a cool idea!

Thanks for this fun Monday morning activity. :D
Some of these will be big guesses… and I don’t remember characters’ names, so I’ll just name the movie!
2. Perhaps Han Solo in a Star Wars movie?
3. Captain America
4. Sea Biscuit
7. Ghost and the Darkness
9. GRANT WALKER to his cousin BROOKS WALKER…. :)
10. National Treasure?


#3 is from The Avengers. What is #2 from?? It sounds SO familiar and I know I’ve seen whichever movie it comes from but I can’t remember! *goes to look it up* Aha! I should watch that again.


I love hearing from you, dear Reader!
