 Those are our five quotes for this week. Let’s go back and see how you did.

Quote one. “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” Well, this well known movie line is from the movie The Princess Bride. This line was said by actor Mandy Patinkin as character Inigo Montoya, a Spanish fencer. Mandy Patinkin has told people this was his favorite movie role. Patinkin attended Juilliard and actor Kelsey Grammer was a classmate of his.

Quote two. “Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads.” This memorable line came from the 1985 movie Back to the Future. In the movie, Dr. Emmett Brown, the inventor of the time machine, says this to Marty McFly. This line occurs at the very end of the film when Doc says he’s going to take Marty to the year 2015. Well, unfortunately, in 2015, we still needed roads. Flying cars were not the thing.

Quote three. “Every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.” Well, this famous quote comes from the 1946 Classic, It’s a Wonderful Life. Little Zuzu Bailey says this to her father at the end of the movie when a bell on the Christmas tree rings. Young Actress Carolyn Grimes play the role of Zuzu Bailey, daughter to Jimmy Stewart’s character, George. Here’s an interesting little fact. The movie was nominated for five Academy Awards. It won a Technical Achievement award at the Oscars for the development of a new method of simulating falling snow on Motion Picture sets. Well, I guess someone had to know how to do it. And we thank the special effects team at RKO for their award winning achievement.

Quote four. “I do wish we could chat longer, but I’m having an old friend for dinner.” Well, I sure wouldn’t want to be the guest of that dinner party because that movie quote comes from the thriller, The Silence of the Lambs. The character Hannibal Lecter, played by Anthony Hopkins says this line to Clarice Starling played by actress Jodie Foster. This movie really cleaned it up at the Academy Awards. It took home five Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay. In the year 2003 the American Film Institute gave the character Hannibal Lecter the honor of being named the greatest villain in American cinema.

And quote five. “I am serious and don’t call me Shirley” Well this line comes from the movie Airplane and it said by Dr. Rumack portrayed by actor Leslie Nielsen. Leslie Nielsen saw a boost in his career after this movie. Actor Leslie Nielsen was born in Canada, and even enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force. After the movie airplane, his roles took a turn towards slapstick comedy. Even in death, Leslie Nielsen left a bit of humor. On his tombstone are the words “Let Er Rip”  a reference to his favorite practical joke, a portable hand-controlled fart machine.
