FAMOUS MOVIE QUOTES

Thanks, finance. Next up: A college Lit Professor speaks:

 

"You know how it exhausts me to teach books I haven't read!"

 

 

 

Alan Bates speaks this line in "Butley" (1974).

 

But you know, cmvgor, I think you might be making things too easy for our friends. Most of these quotes are readily available on the IMDb.

 

In the past, I (and others) have tried to come up with quotes that do NOT appear in the IMDb's quotes collection. It's more fun to dig and do research, rather than just use an easy source.

 

Cheers,

Dan

True, Dan. I'm aware of both methods, and I use both. Sometimes the easy-to-google is just my way of sharing a favorite line. Either your thread or open thread.

Thanks, finance.

I don't expect this one to be hard; I just like it.

 

"Well, what do you believe in?...Don't laugh, tell me."

 

"Well, I belive the Number Eleven bus will get me to Hammersmith. I do not believe it will be driven by, uh, Father Christmas."

who remembers...

 

" The strangeness of this life cannot be measured: in trying to produce my own death, I was elevated to the status of a living hero."

Okay, assuming that my answer to the last question is correct, here's a new movie quote you can identify for us:

 

 

"Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach. But you already knew that, right?"

 

Who said that, to whom, and in what film?

 

Hint: This film was made within the past 20 years.

 

Cheers,

No, not "Annie Hall" (1977) and not "School of Rock" (2003).

 

Hint: The movie in question is an American film that is a loose remake of an old British film with almost the same title.

 

Once again, the line is:

 

"Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach. But you already knew that, right?"

 

Who said that, to whom, and in what picture?

 

Cheers,

Dan

"School for Scoundrels" (2006) is correct.

 

Who said the line to whom? I think that's a legitimate requirement of this question, because in this quote the usual roles are reversed.

 

Ah, what the hell...? It's the last line in the film. Jon Heder, playing the formerly shy student who becomes brave under the tutelage of his crusty teacher, Billy Bob Thornton, says it to him at the end.

 

Your thread, whoever came up with the right answer.

 

Cheers,

Dan
