Got 94, and I knew who said the other 6, but I couldn't think of the movie.

Also, the "what a dump" line is in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf."
Level 55
Aug 5, 2015
Yes, that's what I put. Never heard of the film it's supposed to be from.
Level 80

In Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Elizabeth Taylor is quoting Bette Davis from Beyond the Forest.
Level 71

ephiii is correct, but the line is only as famous as it is because of Virginia Woolf

I thought its alive was from Weird Science... hehe..

Anyway, I only got 22, I am so not a movie buff...

Wow... I really haven't even heard of so many of these movies. Still happy with my 51.

I kept trying "Rain Man" for "Who's on first."

Oy ve. They even watch the Abbot and Costello clip in the movie.

Great quiz. Hmm... did pretty well. It's a shame so few people know treasure of the sierre madre, maltese falcon etc. Some terrific films there.

I tried Treasure of Sierra Madre, several times - guess i missed a 'the'?
Level 55

Knew a lot of the quotes but had no idea which films they came from, so got just over half right- quite pleased with that.
Level 59
Jan 12, 2013
Great quiz! Got 95 right the first time - I knew 4 of the others, but just could not think of the title.
Level 14
Jan 22, 2013
Can't think of a Sherlock Holmes movie when he says that, because in the books/novels those exact words are never spoken. Didn't do too bad, couldn't think of Sixth Sense to save my life.
Level 67
Jul 17, 2013
I heard Katherine Hepburn in my head saying "You're my knight in shining armor" but I just couldn't place the movie. I was positive that "Make my Day" was the movie Dirty Harry...learn something new every day.
Level 78
Oct 21, 2014
The line, "Go ahead, Scumbag, make my day," was used in a 1982 film, Vice Squad. The fourth Dirty Harry film, Sudden Impact, (1983) gets the credit.
Level 74
Oct 18, 2013
Only 6% for Marathon Man? Laurence Olivier was brilliantly creepy in that film. Dustin Hoffman was Dustin Hoffman.
Level 32

this quiz reminds me of the great movie ride in hollywood studios orlando
Level 73
Feb 27, 2014
I got 59, and I have never seen the ones I got wrong, so I'm happy with that.
Level 45
May 30, 2014
could we please try to be a little more specific with the James Bond Quotes? Shaken not stirred could be any of the, like 15, bond movies!
Level 60
Jun 6, 2014
It is the first movie that contains the line. Besides, it is the AFI who is deciding this list, per the description at the top.
Level 37
Aug 15, 2014
Love the idea for the quiz but there are a few mistakes. In every James Bond movie he says Bond, James Bond and martini shaken not stirred, not just those two. Furthermore, I think "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" is a more important line in The Shining than "Here's Johnny". Also, the line "What a dump" is very important for the movie Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolfe, I would argue even more important, or at least count both. One more thing is the line "Who's on first" should also be accepted for the movie "Rain Man".
Level 80
Aug 5, 2015
Were any of those other movies on AFI's top 100?
Level 75
Aug 4, 2015
Terminator 2 should be sufficient for T2: Judgment Day.
Level 58
Aug 5, 2015
For "Plastics", did anyone else try Mean Girls first? No? Just me? Okay...
Level 56
Aug 5, 2015
no, me too...
Level 78
Aug 5, 2015
Sorry that no quotes were included from To Kill a Mockingbird or Schindlers List or so many other great movies. I don't understand their criteria for "top 100" but different strokes for different folks I suppose.
Level 68

I can see that if I had watched Casablanca, I would've gotten a MUCH better score on this quiz!
Level 71
Feb 29, 2016
Hell, your entire LIFE would be much better if you watched "Casablanca"! Hop to it, seriously. It's for your own good.
Level 50
Mar 3, 2017
I just entered Casablanca before reading any of the quotes. Then Godfather.
Level 58
Aug 8, 2015
Although it might seem that initializing film titles, like LOTR, is a horrible modern laziness of the Internet Age, you actually open this quiz with the grandmamma of them all, and it should be accepted for the answer. GWTW ! (Saw a reference to it in a 50s Arthur C Clarke story.)
Level 71
Feb 29, 2016
Great quiz idea, Rachel!
Level 34
May 12, 2016
Slightly disappointed at the lack of Tarantino and Wright films, but most of these aren't ones I tend to watch anyway
Level 82
Sep 3, 2016
Got a 68. Never been so happy to get such a mediocre score. Great quiz. I love that it wasn't one slam dunk after another. Nice range in this one. I get bored with so many pathetically easy quizzes. It's also nice to have a quiz where you actually LEARN something from the ones you miss. Good job!
Level 60

The line "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into," is used in many Laurel and Hardy movies, the first being "Double Whoopie" (1929) and "The Laurel-Hardy Mystery" (1929). In 1930, they even had a movie called "Another Fine Mess," the title being based not on the quote -- which is accurately used in the film -- but on newspapers' inaccurate quotes. This page has a list of the various times the line is used: Credit should be given for any of these answers.
Level 50
Mar 3, 2017
The quizmaster made no attempt to 'correct' the AFI's entries.
Level 70
Jul 27, 2018
The AFI only including feature-length movies, so while "another nice mess" was used in all of those shorts you mentioned, Sons of the Desert is the first feature Laurel and Hardy used it in. Similarly, Abbott and Costello had said "Who's on first?" countless times on stage, radio, etc. before, but The Naughty Nineties is the only feature in which they did the routine.
Level 14
May 29, 2017
Watch the movie Corpse Bride. It has the "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." line in it.
Level 82
Jul 16, 2018
Quite a few of these quotes have been in multiple movies. Some.. like.. "I want to be alone," "what a dump," "hello, gorgeous" etc seem downright generic. But maybe the lines in question were delivered in a memorable or original way. Like.. "they're here!" from Poltergeist. I'm sure that phrase has been in thousands of movies. But never uttered in a particularly memorable way as it was in Poltergeist.
Level 66
Aug 25, 2019
Then there's the Bond quotes - "Shaken not stirred" & "Bond. James Bond" - in which they're asking for the first film the line appeared in. Those lines are much more iconic to the franchise and the character rather than when they were first uttered.
Level 43

49. Knew the quotes, couldn't remember the movie. Also, got confused with the specificity required in the "Dirty Harry" and "Godfather" quotes.
Level 75

100 greatest movie quotes of all time? Pffff
Level 82
Jul 16, 2018
The only ones I missed that I had actually seen before were Caddyshack and Dead Poets Society. And maybe Animal Crackers I can't remember if I've seen that or not. I definitely saw Duck Soup. 12th grade Creative Writing teacher was a big Marx Brothers fan.

I Love You 3000 is needed to add.

I find it amusing that only 30% get Soylent Green... when it's right there in the quote.

What about "No, I am your father"
