The Answers Are In!

28 August 2010








I'm so excited to be revealing the answers to my Movie Night quotes quiz! (By the way, I'm so sorry this is being posted now instead of yesterday -- my family had guests for dinner last night, and we ended up staying up really late.) Before we begin, here's how this is going to work: underneath each quote and it's answer (who said it, and what movie it is from), there will be the names of those who guessed correctly. Bolded names mean that they guessed the movie AND who said the quote correctly. Also, because I am now revealing the answers, the names have been re-inserted into the quotes, rather then just saying --> [name omitted]. Alright, shall we begin?








#1 "Miss Howard, isn't it?"
    "You know who I am, Gabriel Martin. The last time I saw you I was eleven, and you put ink in my tea."
    "Uh, I believe that was one of my younger brothers, perhaps Samuel or Nathan."
    "It was you. And it turned my teeth black for a month."

--Gabriel Martin and Anne Howard, The Patriot




Movie Lovers Who Guessed Correctly: Jessica, Awel Prince

  5. You must love The Patriot. It's my all-time favorite movie! Anyway, sorry I am just now getting back to you on the interview thing. I wasn’t intentionally trying to ignore you, I was caught up with the whole giveaway process that I didn’t have time to email you, or comment about the interview.
    Please let me know if you still want to do it. Katherine at Observations of Becoming is in line to be the first one interviewed. But, as soon as she is done, I will get you started!

  6. Oh, wow, I can't believe I won it!! :) That's...crazy cool! :) Yeah, this is a whole lot of fun! Can't wait for next time!!! See, I knew I knew that quote about being well dressed, but I've only seen the Patriot once... I'm amazed I guessed the first one correctly even!

    ~Awel P.

    p.s. actually if I ever had a movie quote quiz like this most of my quotes would be from old movies and like no one would be able to guess them because so few people have seen them...not that they're bad quality or anything. Just no one watches a whole lot of black and whites anymore...sorry for a terribly long and random comment, girl! :)
