Movie dialogue quiz #3 - testing your peter and maryness

As usual identify the movies from the dialogue below.
1. "The pus that infects the mucus that cruds up the fungus that feeds on the pond scum."
- comes to rescue in channeling my angst

2. "This is an honorable proposal of marriage at what I consider a most opportune moment. I cant go all my life waiting to catch you between husbands."
- the bolded part is why it registered in my head. I could have given the other dialogue, probably the most famous dialogue of all times but that would just be too easy. such wit is almost impossible to find in the newer films.

3. "These fish have manners! They have manners. Infact, they are coming with me."
- the man again. I remember standing in the ticket line for this movie with L fantasizing that the man would come out shirtless. Apart from the four of us, there were only two more at Devi that day and they were mighty disappointed.

4."I know, I know. We are Your chosen people. But, once in a while, can't You choose someone else?"
- I watched the movie recently with some disinterest due to my disdain for most English musicals and realized why its a classic.

5. "You cant handle the truth"
- easy peasy jappansy, no? My all-time favorite movie with lead man however crazy he is now was so worth all the jollu in the world.


  1. 3. Jerry Maguire! Cameron Crowe is a favorite. No one else writes such great lines.

    4. Not sure but some Nazi type movie? Life is Beautiful? Dont know.

    5. A Few Good Men

  2. Totally lost :( English padam dialogues is "out of syllabus"

  3. Adi: thx, if not for you the quiz would have been a total failure.
    4. nazi? - chosen people -jews:) alright but it is prob. the largest genre of English cinema.
    - fiddler on the roof.
    1. Best friend's wedding
    2. Gone with wind.

    SK: i loled when i read about your sleep after 5 mins into the movie habit:) I cant go to sleep once I start watching a movie even if i am dead tired!

    Kaushik: err... my fault. no "out of syllabus" questions from now on.
