I Luv that Line

A game I liberated from Mo:

The Rules
1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb (Internet Movie Database) and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Indicate when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. No Googling or IMDb-ing. (That would be cheating, and no fun!)

Ready to Play?

1. "What kind of pie?" THE WAY WE WERE

2. "Leave the gun. Take the cannoli." THE GODFATHER

3. "Jean Louise, stand up. Your father's passing." TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

4. "I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name!" BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S

5. "Nine million terrorists and I gotta kill one with feet smaller than my sister!" DIE HARD

6. "
You know, you can say it backwards, which is 'dociousaliexpiisticfagilcalirupes.'" MARY POPPINS

7. "Sometimes nothing can be a really cool hand." COOL HAND LUKE

8. "She's a drag. A well-known drag. We turn the sound down on her and say rude things." A HARD DAY'S NIGHT

9. "Pick me out a winner, Bobby." THE NATURAL

10. "Land is the only thing in the world worth working for, worth fighting for, worth dying for, because it's the only thing that lasts." GONE WITH THE WIND

BONUS QUESTION: One performer uttered two of these lines (in two different movies). Who is it? ROBERT REDFORD (#1 AND #9)

If you choose to play, let me know so I can come visit and see how I do with your quotes.

Not funny. Not funny at all, Gov. Huckabee.

I know Mike Huckabee professes to be a Christian and probably didn't mean this to sound as ugly and evil as it appears. But some things leave wounds so deep you cannot joke about them. Ever. Under any circumstances.

Huckabee jokes about gun aimed at Obama

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Hearing a loud noise and interrupting his speech, Huckabee said: "That was Barack Obama. He just tripped off a chair. He's getting ready to speak and somebody aimed a gun at him and he — he dove for the floor."

In case you were wondering ...

This is what the team in FIRST PLACE TEAM in the NL Central Division calls "home." And as of today, the Cubs have the best "at home" record in the entire MLB.

They deserve a refund!

Yale ripped these two lovely old people off! They sent their eldest son to that school and, even after receiving what's reputed to be a "first-rate" Ivy League education, he graduated without being able to tell these words apart …
