Forgetful Quote

Have you ever had a day where you go blissfully through it, even signing and dating a form, without ever really noticing what day it is?  That happened to me on Monday. 

Monday, as the rest of you probably realize was the 15th.  Around here, the 15th is usually a pretty big deal.  After dinner was all cleaned up, and the kids were in bed, I went into the kitchen, where Roon was looking ever so sexy wiping off the counter, and  simply said "it's November 15th".  He responded with an "Oh crap."

THEN he suggested I just skip it this month on account of it being the Holiday season and all. 

You know I can't do that!

BUT I also don't want to stress myself out, since I am hosting Christmas for my side of the family this year, and Sissy is turning 8 the day after Christmas, and in our church, that is a BIG deal. 

SO...I came up with a compromise. 
2 movies (1 November, 1 December), 2 winners, but only one prize PACKAGE for me to assemble. 

Many of my readers have already won a Quince Quote package from me, so I thought you all might enjoy a chance to win JUST A MOVIE for once.  Wouldn't you?

Here's how it will work:
2 separate quotes will be given.  You will answer the same questions, or do the same things for each quote.  I will make my spreadsheet (like I always do) for EACH quote. 
I will then use random.org to draw winners, starting with the "November" quote. 
IF the person who wins the November movie has never won before, they will win the PACKAGE.  If they have won before, they will win just the movie. 
Then I will draw for December.  If the package is left, the winner could win the package, provided that they have never won a Quince Quote before.  If they have, I guess I don't have to make another bowl until January...
Regular Quince Quote will resume in January. 
Why only 1 chance for a package?
Because December's movie costs more than I normally spend on the winning movie.  That's why!

Now onto the fun stuff...

NOVEMBER:
"Well, I don't have any flowers, I wouldn't mind seeing the black underwear, but under the circumstances, I don't think we should move in together."

DECEMBER:
"Fra-gee-lay. That must be Italian."

Here are your chances to win:

1 Entry-  Name the movie
1 Entry-  Name the character who said the quote.
1 Entry-  Name actor/actress who played character
1 Entry-  Quote line delivered before or after the quote.
1 Entry-  Quote another line from the movie.  (This is unlimited!  Make me laugh, and get a BONUS entry!)
5 Entries-  Blog aout it!
3 Entries-  Follow me!
3 Entries-  "Like" Symmetry in Motion on Facebook.

You can leave one comment containing all of your guesses for EACH movie if you would like.  I'm going to make my spreadsheet anyway, so we may as well simplify things!  You can also include the info about your followng, blogging, and "like"ing in that same comment as well. 
GOOD LUCK!
Please enter for each movie separately.  I am awesome, but let's not test the limits of my awesomeness, okay?

I'll leave this open until TUESDAY , NOVEMBER 23rd, 11:59 pm.  central time.  I will announce the winner next Wednesday. 

Don't forget to sign up for my 12 Days of Christmas swap!  It's going to be legen- wait for it... DARY!

Debra said...

November- Jack!

Debra said...

November- Bill Pullman. I love that you picked this quote. I just love this movie!

Debra said...

November, line from before- I don't want any flowers from you, I am not wearing black underwear, and I definitely do not want to move in with you, Joe... Jack

Debra said...

November: While You Were Sleeping (I love it!)

Jack said it.
Jack is played by Bill Pullman.
"I thought you were Joe, Jr." "I get that a lot."
"These potatoes are so creamy...Mary mashed 'em." (And, I don't think this counts as a line, but the part where the kid throws the newspaper and falls down on the follow through is my absolute favorite part!)
I'll be blogging it as soon as I'm done commenting here.

Jack

Evelyn @ Hanging by a Silver Lining said...

or Bill Pullman...he used to be one of my faves. Now I look at him and think...eww, he's kind of old.

Sarahie said...

December: It isn't Christmas until I watch this one: A Christmas Story!
The character is the Dad, I don't think he has a name.
The Dad is played by Darren McGavin (I've watched this movie too many times...just kidding. That's not possible.)
Mom replies to him, "I think that says 'Fragile.'"
"Don't anybody move! A fuse is out." "Not a finga!" (I watch the movie for those 2 lines.)
Same as above, I'm on my way to blog about it.
I follow you.
I like you. =)

Evelyn @ Hanging by a Silver Lining said...

I always loved the line "I'll do it! I'm his mother!" when they are trying to figure out just how bad the pencil accident really was.

Evelyn @ Hanging by a Silver Lining said...

I love you but you're a schmutz...or is it a putz??

Evelyn @ Hanging by a Silver Lining said...

"HERE! You can have these back too!" That Bacon girl...Ashley Bartlett Bacon.

Why are the lines I rememember the risque ones??? :S

Evelyn @ Hanging by a Silver Lining said...

Oh and I can't forget!!....

"Cuz it looks like he's leeaaning." Joe Jr.


LOL!!! I quote that one all the time.

Evelyn @ Hanging by a Silver Lining said...

November--"While You Were Sleeping"

(P.S. LOVE this movie!)

November--Jack Callaghan

Nancy said...

November:
While You Were Sleeping
Jack Callaghan
Bill Pullman
"I don't want any flowers from you, I am not wearing black underwear, and I definitely don't want to move in with you Joe.."
"I thought you were Joe Jr." "I get that a lot!"

Here's some of my favs:
"Would you want to see Dustin Hoffman save the Alamo?"
"Go ahead and marry her you one-balled ba***ard."
"Hey Pop! Can I give that bottle of Blue Nun you got from Cousin Ornello to my probation officer?"
Knock on door..."Who is it?" "Joe Jr." "I'm not here." "I know that trick!"

LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!!

November--"Oh! I don't want any flowers from you, I am not wearing black underwear, and I definitely do not want to move in with you, Joe - Jack."

Nancy said...

December:
A Christmas Story
Mr. Parker
Darren McGavin
"That must be Italian." "Uh, I think that says Fragile, dear."

Here's a couple of my favs: (Couldn't choose just one)
"Over the years I got to be quite a connoisseur of soap. My personal preference was for Lux, but I found Palmolive had a nice, piquant after-dinner flavor-heady, but with just a touch of mellow smoothness. Life Buoy, on the other hand...Yecchh!"
"You mundane noodle!"
"My father worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium, a master."

Jen said...

November--Quotes. Here we go:

"I'd say that she gets under your skin as soon as you meet her. She drives you so nuts you don't know whether to hug her or, or just really arm wrestle her. She would go all the way to Europe just to get a stamp in her passport. I don't know if that amounts to insanity, or just being really, really... likable. "

Jack: It was a lot different from hugging. Hugging's very different. Hugging that involves arms and hands; and leaning is whole bodies moving in like this (leans in) Leaning involves wanting... and accepting. Leaning...
Joe Jr.: Hey Luce! Is this guy bothering you?
Lucy: No, no.
Joe Jr.: Are you sure? Because it looks like he's... leaning.

"Can you give me any reason why I shouldn't marry your brother?"

"And what are you, the Happiness Guru, Jack?"

"Talk about it now, he can't kill you in church. "

Emmy said...

Emmy said...

Nov- Another line: "I'd say that she gets under your skin as soon as you meet her. She drives you so nuts you don't know whether to hug her or, or just really arm wrestle her. She would go all the way to Europe just to get a stamp in her passport. I don't know if that amounts to insanity, or just being really, really... likable."

Novemeber:
One of my ALL TIME FAVES! While you were sleeping ♥

the Character speaking is Jack Callaghan responding to Lucy (Sandra Bullock) who said, "Oh! I don't want any flowers from you, I am not wearing black underwear, and I definitely do not want to move in with you, Joe"

Jack was played by Bill Pullam

Other fave quotes of mine:

Jack:Maybe if we angle it a little.
Lucy: I think it's wedged.
Jack: Why don't you step back, I'm gonna try an old trick.
Lucy: What's the trick?
Jack: Push it really hard.
Lucy: Ok, push.
Jack: I did.

Jen said...

Lucy:Okay, um. What do you mean by the leaning thing? You mean because he gave me flowers?
Jack: And then you *leaned*
Lucy: And then I leaned.
Jack: Yeah.
Lucy: Okay, how did I lean when I leaned?
Jack: It was a lot different from hugging. Hugging's very different. Hugging that involves arms and hands; and leaning is whole bodies moving in like this...
Jack: . Leaning involves *wanting*... and *accepting*. *Leaning*...
Joe Jr.: Hey Luce! Is this guy bothering you?
Lucy: No, no.
Joe Jr.: Are you sure? Because it looks like he's *leaning.*

Love it! My husband and I joke about leaning all the time thanks to THIS movie!

Jen said...

Ox Callahan: Jesus Christ, Jack, you're running the business.
Jack: That's something I'd like to talk to you about.
Midge Callaghan: Talk about that later ok?
Mary Callaghan: Talk about it now, he can't kill you in church.

Lucy: I'm not talking about 900 numbers.
Joe Jr.: Who told?

Dec- A Christmas story

Oh and now my disclaimer. I actually have both of these movies already... so I really just want your cute prize package. So if, I don't win Nov and the person that does gets the package and I win December-then I would like to just be an honorary winner and you can pick the movie for someone else. And that way still be qualified to win. So, basically I want the package more than the movies as I already have both :)

Emmy said...

Dec: -Another line: "Deck the halls with brwalls of Holly Fra Ra Ra Ra RA Ra Ra Ra RA"-- not quite sure how to spell that one :)

Emmy said...

Nov- another line "You're born into a family. You do not join them like you do the Marines"

Emmy said...

Oh and I just read your remark about including it all in the same comment :) That would have made it easier, but hey this way it makes you look so much more popular!

Jen said...

Joe Jr.: O.K., Lucy, it's either me or him!
Lucy: Him.
Joe Jr.: You don't have to answer right away.
