Movie trivia time!

I have been wanting to do this forever, so here goes! :) Below are quotes from 20 of my favorite movies. It's up to you guys to guess what movie each one comes from. After a few days, I'll come back and put up who guessed correctly! Good luck! Some are quite easy, while others are a little tricky.

P.S. No cheating, through Google or otherwise. :)

1. Character 1: "Do you mind if I ask you a question, frankly? Do you love my daughter?
Character 2: "Any guy that'd fall in love with your daughter ought to have his head examined."
Character 1: "Do you love her?"
Character 2: "A normal human being couldn't live under the same roof with her without going nutty. She's my idea of nothing!"
Character 1: "I asked you a simple question! Do you love her?"
Character 2: "Yes! But don't hold that against me, I'm a little screwy myself!"

2. Character 1: I wasn't sure you were the same. Let's see, the last time we met...
Character 2: Was La Belle Aurore.
Character 1: How nice, you remembered. But of course, that was the day the Germans marched into Paris.
Character 2: Not an easy day to forget.
Character 1: No.
Character 2: I remember every detail. The Germans wore gray, you wore blue.

3. Character 1: I warned you I'd kill her.
Character 2: Well that's great, because, you know what? As soon as my guys hear what you've done...
Character 1: The game will be over, your Queen'll be dead.
Character 2: My King's still You know?
Character 1: Once the Queen is dead, the King is useless.
Character 2: What's that about?
Character 1: I don't know. Maybe he's too depressed to fight. He really loved her, you know.

4. Character 1: He gets a look.
Character 2: He always has that look! It doesn't mean anything emotionally. It has something to do with his...liver.

5. Character 1: Do you know what I fear most?
Character 2: The decline of the aristocracy?
Character 1: Ugly grandchildren.

6. Character 1: Why do people have to grow up and marry, change?
Character 2: Oh, you'd change. If someone ever admitted that they were head over heels for you, you'd be swept off your feet in a moment.
Character 1: I would not, and I defy anyone who would try and make me change.
Character 2: You do?

7. Character 1: Do you have a silk nightgown with rosebuds?
Character 2: I haven't worn a nightgown in years!

8. Character 1: Waiter, will you serve the nuts? I mean, will you serve the guests the nuts?

9. Character 1: Your unfortunate brother once had to put up with my playing for a whole evening.
Character 2: But he says you play so well.
Character 1: Then he has perjured himself most profoundly.
Character 3: No, I said, "played quite well."
Character 1: Oh, "quite well" is not "very well." I'm satisfied.

10. Character 1: You know I love you. I always will, but we can never marry. That's all!

11. Character 1: One of these days I am really...going to let you teach that guy a lesson.

12. Character 1: What do they think I am? Dumb or something? Why, I make more money than...than...than Calvin Coolidge! Put together!

13. Character 1: That guy is either the dumbest, stupidest, most imbecilic idiot in the world, or else he's the grandest thing alive. I can't make him out.

14. Character 1: Dear friend. Are you disappointed?
Character 2: Psychologically, I'm very confused, but personally I feel just wonderful.

15. Character 1: Hey, you remind me of a man.
Character 2: What man?
Character 1: Man with the power.
Character 2: What power?
Character 1: Power of hoodoo.
Character 2: Hoodoo?
Character 1: You do.
Character 2: Do what?
Character 1: Remind me of a man...

16. Character 1: Courage! What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the "ape" in apricot? What have they got that I ain't got?
Other characters: Courage!

17. Character 1: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.
Character 2: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.

18. Character 1: You saved my life, so you owe me something.
Character 2: Oh, it was I who saved your life, so now I owe you something! Hey, look, have you gone crazy?
Character 1: Look, I didn't ask you to save my life, but you did. So now I feel you are responsible for me.
Character 2: Well I don't!
Character 1: Well, what's the good of having a life saved when you can't have any fun with it?

19. Character 1: A woman happily in love, she burns the souffle. A woman unhappily in love, she forgets to turn on the oven.

20. Character 1: Voila! Oh, you look so... so...
Character 2: Stupid.
Character 1: Not quite the word I was looking for, but perhaps a little more off the top.

Until next time,
