Lasting Lines

So, I put a little twist on the game this week for a couple of reasons. First, finding the actual last lines of all these good movies isn’t as easy as you may think, and for the next couple of weeks my resources are limited. I’m good, but not so good that I have them all memorized. Second, when we’re talking Oscar season, we’re talking the best movies of all time, and therefore the best dialogue. How could I limit us to the last words uttered? So many good quotes have proved memorable through film history – see if you can guess where these lasting lines originated! Hint: Every quote comes from a film that WON Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

1. “Now, an army is a team – it lives, eats, sleeps, fights as a team. This individuality stuff is a bunch of crap.”

2. “There has to be a mathematical explanation for how bad that tie is.”

3. “Forgive me, Majesty. I am a vulgar man! But I assure you, my music is not.”

4. “Well, I proved once and for all that the limb is mightier than the thumb.”

5. “You want to know what’s wrong with our waterfront? It’s the love of a lousy buck. It’s making love of a buck – the cushy job – more important than the love of man!”

Answers will be posted later on this evening. Happy Friday, Dry Ground Friends!
