People who quote movies should be boiled in oil.

UPDATED with some correct guesses!

I’ve just seen a movie quote quiz-thing over at Erin’s blog. The idea is simple: you pick 15 movies or so, give a quote from each one (IMDb is good for this), and challenge your readers to identify the movies. As the quotes get identified, I’ll strike through them. I can’t pass this up, now can I? Why, no! So here we go (and just to make it slightly harder, there are no quotes from any Star Wars movie here):

1. We grew up in peacetime!

2. You’re as crazy as your mama! Goes to show it’s in the genes. (JFK, guessed by SamuraiFrog)

3. The only thing that worried me was the actual killing. How does one do that? Hmmm? How does one kill a man? It’s one thing to dream about it; very different when, when you, when you have to do it with your own hands. (Amadeus, guessed by Charlie.

4. Sherif, is there not one thing in your life that is worth losing everything for? (The Wind and the Lion, guessed by SamuraiFrog)

5. I have been known on occasion to howl at the moon.

6. That’s enough, Baron. Turn it off. No one’s impressed with your cheesy light show, okay?

7. If you ever get tired of going steady with somebody that ain’t around, I’m up for grabs. (American Graffiti, guessed by Aaron)

8. We had a nice couple of minutes together. She threatened me, I patronized her. Didn’t have anything to eat, but I thought there was a connection. (The American President, guessed by Charlie)

9. I can’t fight it anymore. I ran away from you once. I can’t do it again. Oh, I don’t know what’s right any longer. You have to think for both of us. For all of us. (Casablanca, guessed by Aaron)

10. “People”? I ain’t “people.” I am a – “a shimmering, glowing star in the cinema firmament.” (Singin’ in the Rain, guessed by Will Duquette)

11. When you first entered the restaurant, I thought you were handsome… and then, of course, you spoke. (As Good As It Gets, guessed by Aaron)

12. I’m not gonna spend the rest of my life working my ass off and getting nowhere just because I followed rules that I had nothing to do with setting up, OK?

13. We didn’t choose this place! We didn’t choose these people! They were invited! (Close Encounters of the Third Kind, guessed by SamuraiFrog)

14. Never take it seriously, you never get hurt. Never get hurt, you can always have fun. And if you ever get lonely, you just go to the record store and visit all your friends.

15. Boy, it sure would be nice if we had some grenades, don’t you think? (Serenity, guessed by Aaron)

There they are. What movies are they from?
