15 out of 20's not bad, and you hit, well, almost all my faves... did I miss the obligatory Blade Runner quote? Or are there just too many to narrow it down to a single one? Saving the goods for the next quiz?


p.s. wake up, time to die

Man, you are good. Of course, had to include that one from A Boy and his Dog... which, after you & Sherril mentioned it, we rented -- and that was a fun movie! Wacky ending, didn't see that coming. And what was up with the clown make-up on the lower-dwellers, or did I just miss something??

Gasp, I only got 6 out of 20. Once I clicked on the link, I recognized the movie, but not all the quotes. Did I ever mention I am not detail oriented?

Who are you calling scruffy looking?

I had to guess on quite a few, but just like Trivial Pursuit, educated guesses usually pay off. And to be honest, I wasn't sure if the "Gods and Monsters" quote was F or BoF!

Sherril, are you actually living in Edmonton? I spent 8 months in Ft. Saskatchewan, working at Dow Chem, and have fond memories of the place. Edmonton, that is, not Ft. Sask!
