Game: First Line of a Movie

#1 Post by Spikel7l » 20 Jul 2004, 09:08

Ok ... I dont know if anyone will like this game, but my friends and I play it on long road trips.

The idea is to quote the first spoken line of any movie. Whoever guesses it puts up the next one.

A few simple rules:

1) Opening theme songs do not count. The quote must be the first spoken words of any character in the movie.

2) Opening narrations are fair game.

3) The amount of the quote is up to the giver. They can make it as challenging or as easy as they deem. But if no one seems to be getting it, be ready to give a little more to help us along.

4) Exact quotes are not nessesary, but please make them as close as humanly possible.

Hope ya'all find it fun. It got us the whole way from Pittsburgh to New York and back one weekend.

I'll start it off with something easy ...

Say ... any of you boys smitty's? And if not, were you otherwise trained in the metalurgical arts before life sped you o ... THUMP ... SCREEEECH ..... Damn it boys, can't I depend on you for anything?

Opening narration is fair game. So far as they are the first spoken words of the movie. But whatever works for ya'all, as long as yer havin fun playing the game.

Somebody else can take it. I'm leaving soon and won't be on the boards for a few days.

Not the first line, which would be entirely too easy, but the second, which is only kinda easy:
<b>Legendary was the Xanadu where Kubla Kahn decreed his stately pleasure dome</b>

If you wake up at a different time in a different place could you wake up as a different person?

Please people! Mark your spoilers! Jeez! Citizen Kane is one of my favorite movies, but I always fall asleep around hour 5, so I still don't know the ending... or at least I didn't before JG's thoughtless post! :rant:

Didn't see this until just now, but Citizen Kane runs a pretty swifty two hour running time.

It was my lame attempt at a joke. I really enjoyed CK and have seen it all. I didn't want anyone to think my spoiler request was serious so I just... ah nevermind :oops:
