Who's the characer who said that movie line?

41 posts in this topic

I was thinking about a variation of the Flicks From Just One Thread Line thread in order to pick it up because it seems to have run out it's course.  And with good reason.  In this game we name the character who made the quote from the movie.  I may know most of the movies where those movie lines came, but I probably don't know all the character's who made them, which makes it more interesting.

OK, I'll try the first one.

That would be "Gordon Gekko" (sp?) (Michael Douglas)

Is it OK to give the actor, if you can't remember the character's name?

 

"The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain."  (I guess either of two characters would do here, since one repeats the line after the other.)

Sure, in an effort to keep it moving, the name of the actor will do.  Not sure about you're clue.

It's from the Blues Brothers, but I don't know if it's Jake or Elwood.  I'll go with Jake (Belushi).

That is correct.  Commander of Marine forces at Guantanamo bay.

If you're willing to play, go ahead and pop another one up Seth R.

OK. 

Revenge is a dish that tastes best when it is served cold!

I know of this line because it's one of my favorite movies.  However, I won't expect those here (most here) to know that movie all that well.  But I also know it's been used in a particular movie that many here are very familiar with and it's from a particular genre that many here are quite hip with. I'll accept any character's (or actor's name).

Khan said something very similar in "Star Trek II:  The Wrath of Khan," mentioning that it was a Klingon proverb.

I'm suspect that your exact quote is from a different movie, though.

Don Corleone used my quote in "The Godfather 2".  You're also correct George, It was from Star Trek II but Khan's line was "Kirk ole friend, do you know the Klingon proverb, Revenge is a dish best served cold?". 

But my favorite is John Creasy (Denzel Washington) in Man on Fire, "Revenge is a dish best served cold!"

You're up.
