I'm batting .300 on this one. I only have answers for the 3rd, the 7th and the 9th lines off the top of my head (and will not write those answers here and spoil the fun for others).

Thanks Liam.

Polecat gave the answer to #7. You can write your answers to #3 and #9 (I'm sure they're right!) and I will start giving hints on the others if no one else chimes in.

Purely from the cuss word I'm guessing #5 is PATTON

Sorry LP that's not it, but you are very close. It is a Male and it is from that decade.

4. "Mother Of God, pray for me"

8. "Assassin! Assassin!"

10. "How do you know?"

Here's a few hints to the other ones not guessed yet.

4. It's a female, the line is spoken on the character's death bed

8. Female, she shouts this at someone she feels betrayed her.

10. Another female. She says this as a sarcastic response to someone just before her death scene.

Is the 5th one Gene Hackman in The French Connection (1971)? Sounds like something a cop would say when he/she still hasn't caught the criminal.

That's it Liam, Hackman as determined Popeye Doyle after the French drug smuggler

10. "How do you know?"

One more clue on this one:

This actress finally won the Oscar for this role after several losses.

Thanks for the quiz, Det. Jim McLeod!  I thought of a few more, if anyone wants to take a stab at them...

 

1. "Ma, I love him awful"

2. "Never mind that, you're rusting my guitar!"

3. "Thank you Arthur, thank you for my children"

4. "I ain't gonna call her anymore--I'll fix your eggs."

5. "Just the two of them now, the babies have all grown up and moved to Los Angeles, or somewhere."

6. "Oh don't worry we'll make it, it's a clear case of predestination--look it up"

7. "Bye Nick"

8. "The way we're swimmin', old girl!"

9. "I was gonna buy you a tie clip or some shavin' lotion or something, but I didn't know what you'd like."

10. "I love you Norm--two more months."

11. "Children? I had thousands of them, thousands of them and all boys."

12. "Honey, I'm sorry--I did the best I could."
