And now for something completely different…

So you know those fun little questionnaires that people e-mail to you asking things like "when is your anniversary?" and "if you could survive on any three foods alone, what would they be?"

This is my humble contribution to the genre.

MOVIE QUOTE QUIZ-TIONNAIRE
Fill in the blanks in these movie quotes with words/phrases that describe you. And please note that all references to "you/your" really mean "I/me," at least in the question-answering sense… um… that made no sense, but I think you should be able to figure it out on your own.

  1. “I was born a — — —.” (The
    Jerk)
  2. “Your middle name is —, as in —,
    your birth date’s —, you’re 5′—, you weigh — pounds and your
    social security number is [just kidding!].” (Breakfast Club)
  3. “Your mother was a — and your
    father smelt of —.” (Holy Grail)
  4. “It’s a Zen thing, like how many —
    fit in a —.” (Waiting for Guffman)
  5. “I have a bad feeling about —.”
    (Star Wars)
  6. “This is not a tragedy. A tragedy is
    —, or —.” (Dirty Dancing)
  7. “ My job consists of basically —,
    and, at least once a day, — so I can —while I fantasize about
    —. ” (American Beauty)
  8. “I see — people.” (Sixth Sense)
  9. “Vote for —!” (Napoleon Dynamite)
  10. “What do you mean nothing good? We’ve
    seen everything good. We’ve seen —! We went to —, we saw
    priceless —! We ate —!” (Ferris Bueller)
  11. “Life is —. Anyone who says
    differently is selling something.”(Princess Bride)
  12. “’Blessed are the
    —.’” (Life of Brian)

And here are my answers:

  1. “I was born a small white Californian.” (The
    Jerk)
  2. “Your middle name is Rebecca, as in Sunnybrook Farm,
    your birth date’s June 20, you’re 5′6 (if you stretch your neck), you weigh too damn many pounds and your
    social security number is [just kidding!].” (Breakfast Club)
  3. “Your mother was a teacher and your
    father smelt of err, cigarettes” (Holy Grail)
     
  4. “It’s a Zen thing, like how many angels
    fit in a sock.” (Waiting for Guffman)
  5. “I have a bad feeling about Bill Frist.”
    (Star Wars)
     
  6. “This is not a tragedy. A tragedy is ethnic warfare in Darfur, or bicameral Republican control of Congress.” (Dirty Dancing)
     
  7. “ My job consists of basically screwing around on the computer,
    and, at least once a day, taking a yoga break so I can close my eyes while I fantasize about triumphing over my nemeses. ” (American Beauty)
     
  8. “I see redneck people.” (Sixth Sense)
     
  9. “Vote for Obama!” (Napoleon Dynamite)
     
  10. “What do you mean nothing good? We’ve
    seen everything good. We’ve seen Paris! We went to the Musee d’Orsay, we saw
    priceless Degas paintings! We ate croques-monsieurs!” (Ferris Bueller)
  11. “Life is pain (I can’t improve on the original). Anyone who says
    differently is selling something.”(Princess Bride)
     
  12. “’Blessed are the pot-smokin’ skate punks.‘” (Life of Brian)

And now some tags! Amy, Gwyn, Constance, Wanda, Melissa, Molly… hell, whoever feels like doing it, just LMK and shoot me a trackback. Have fun and feel free to add you own favorite quotes!
