The Giveaway!

It is finally here! This giveaway will be a Target giftcard and (count them) TWO scratch-off tickets.
My son was asking when the next contest would be, and I told him some people felt the quizzes took too much time. He suggested the scratch-offs as an incentive. Who knows, you could win big bucks, or you could waste your time as I did making this quiz.

The quiz is MOVIE QUOTES.  If a movie happens to have a sequel, it doesn't matter. Just give the name of the movie, Jaws, not Jaws 2, for example. I am assuming if you are reading this you have internet, so finding these quotes shouldn't be too hard.

Here are the RULES. You know us former educators, we like rules.

1. Email me  your answers. Do not post them here on the blog. I do not have one of those sophisticated blogs that hides your answers.

2. On the blog post the name of your favorite movie. If you don't know how to post, learn. Ha, actually, if you don't want to learn, just email me. I will post it for you. But, this is part of the contest.

3. All correct entries will be put in a hat and one winner will be chosen.

4. Winner will be posted on Wednesday.


1.“Why land is the only thing in the world worth working for, worth fighting for, worth dying for, because its the only thing that last.”
2.“Fifty bucks never killed anybody.”
3.“Nobody leaves this place without singing the blues.”
4.“There will be generations because of what you did.”
5.“Love give me strength.”
6.“Show him how to tie a sheepshank and let him go.”
7.“I want the truth.”
8.“Badges? We don’t need no stinking badges.”
9.“In a world that’s disappearing, I’m afraid.”
10.“And in the end, I realized that I took more than I gave, I was trusted more than I trusted, and I was loved more than I loved.”
11.“Toe Pick”
12.“Simon wrote his own obituary, and he asked me to read it. "Simon B. Wilder bit it on Wednesday."
13.“I hope they remember. I hope Texas remembers.”
14.“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends.”
15.“But I have been a good soldier, Daddy, and you don’t know me.”
16.“ I am your father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate.”
17.“We looked for the good in them and we found it, didn’t we?”
18.“I’m going to make him an offer he won’t refuse.”
19.“That was some of the best flying I’ve seen to date-right up to the part where you got killed.”
20.“With great power comes great responsibility.”


  1. I can't pick ONE favorite movie! It's too hard. I choose Bye Bye Birdie to list here.

  2. Caddyshack or Shawshank Redemption.

  3. I didn't find time today to complete the quiz, but considering how many times I've seen the movie quoted in number 11, I guess it must be my favorite. :)

  4. Star Wars: A New Hope

  5. "Used Cars" hands down! Its got a little bit of everything. Well, everything funny.
