The Game of the Film

Several people on my friends list have done this already, and I figure I might as well jump on the bandwagon.

1. Pick 15 of your favourite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie. [I'm actually going to disregard this and screen comments instead, to avoid the inevitable "I knew that, but someone else beat me to it!" problems that I've experienced myself with some of these. I mean, it's not like it really matters, but I don't think it's fair that people who just happen to read their friends page at the right time get an advantage.] EDIT: It's been a week, so I'm going to go ahead and unscreen the comments. You can still guess the ones that haven't been correctly identified.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions

1. Well, ain't this place a geographical oddity. Two weeks from everywhere! O Brother, Where Art Thou? - secretnthewings, petie_s, and unclemilo
2. I support and oppose many things, but not strongly enough to pick up a pen. Bender's Big Score - petie_s
3. A delicious-looking limestone rock. Mmm! Mmm! Nice bouquet. Must be a real vintage year. The Neverending Story - secretnthewings, punterschlagen, and obsessical
4. Excellent. Now we must Gump the head at the front, and tie Jack's feet together. Return to Oz - slfcllednowhere, secretnthewings, arfies, and yosef
5. I've DONE everything a mother can do: I've locked her in her room, I've beat her with the car aerial. Nothing changes her. It's HARD being a loving mother! Female Trouble - revme
6. Where's the fetus going to gestate? You going to keep it in a box? The Life of Brian - secretnthewings and rockinlibrian
7. SORRY! Sorry after you and your tennis pals torched this guy and now he's after me? In case you havent been keeping score, it's HIS fucking banquet, and I'm the last course.
8. Snozzberries? Whoever heard of a snozzberry? Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - slfcllednowhere, secretnthewings, rockinlibrarian, petie_s, obsessical, unclemilo, colbyucb, yosef, and remve
9. If nobody comes down here and buys a car in the next hour, I'm gonna club this baby seal. That's right! I'm gonna club this seal to make a better deal. You know I'll do it, too, cause I'm crazy. UHF - secretnthewings, petie_s, and revme
10. People are very gullible. They'll believe anything they see in print.
11. You want a Pepsi, pal, you're gonna pay for it. Back to the Future - rockinlibrarian, punterschlagen, obsessical, and unclemilo
12. Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K. Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure - unclemilo and revme
13. The tail I could live with. But the fleas? They're murder. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - secretnthewings, rockinlibrarian, punterschlagen, and yosef
14. What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? A Clockwork Orange - slfcllednowhere, colbyucb, and revme
15. You take a chance getting up in the morning, crossing the street or sticking your face in a fan.

Honestly, I like the lyric game better. While I watch a fair number of movies and really enjoy some of them, I'm just not as into Film as I am into Music. Anyway, go ahead and get guessing. I'll probably post the answers in about a week.
