Subject: Memorial Day War Movie Quote Quiz - Clues Included - Closed

Written By: Mushroom on 05/28/07 at 12:23 pm

In honor of those that have fallen, here is a quiz from war movies.  See how many movies you can identify from the quotes below:

1.  He's the greatest general since Alvin York!
World War II
MacArthur

2.  Shut up! Shut up and take the pain! Take the pain!
Badfinger-fan - Platoon

3.  This is no democracy Sergant, this is the Marines. They look pretty normal I guess, expectin them to wear war paint.
World War II
loki 13 - Windtalkers

4.  Now, an army is a team - it lives, eats, sleeps, fights as a team. This individuality stuff is a bunch of crap.
World War II
Patton

5.  If in this work we have conveyed to the mind the ravages of war to the end that war may be held in abhorrence, this effort will not have been in vain.
American Civil War
Green Lantern - Birth Of A Nation

6.  That's a lot of hogwash. Don't kid yourself, there'll be Russian generals who will react just as I would - the best defense is a good offense. They see trouble coming up, take my word for it, they'll attack, and they won't give a damn what Marx said.
Cold War
Fail Safe

7.  Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room.
loki 13 - Dr. Strangelove: Or How I learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb

8.  This is the AK-47 assault rifle, the preferred weapon of your enemy; and it makes a distinctive sound when fired at you, so remember it.
loki 13 - Heartbreak Ridge

9.  Well I'm as much agin killin' as ever sir. --- But it was this way Colonel. --- When I started out I felt just like you said, but when I hear them machine guns a goin' and all them fellas are droppin' around me --- I figured them guns was killin' hundreds maybe thousands and there wern't nothin' any body could do, but to stop them guns. And that's what I done.
World War I
RobertK - Sergeant York

10.  I wonder what was going through Custer's mind when he realized that he'd led his men into a slaughter?
loki 13 - We Were Soldiers

11.  Every faction in Africa calls themselves by these noble names - Liberation this, Patriotic that, Democratic Republic of something-or-other... I guess they can't own up to what they usually are: a federation of worse oppressors than the last bunch of oppressors. Often, the most barbaric atrocities occur when both combatants proclaim themselves freedom-fighters.
Cold War
Lord Of War

12.  You know there's not a single horse in the entire country of Vietnam? There's definitely something wrong with that.
RTynanDDS - Full Metal Jacket

13.  Why should I agree to trade one tyrant three thousand miles away for three thousand tyrants one mile away?
American Revolutionary War
The Patriot

14.  Private Owens! Was the sand flea you killed male or female?
Cold War
loki 13  - The D.I.

15.  So long as the Arabs fight tribe against tribe, so long will they be a little people, a silly people - greedy, barbarous, and cruel, as you are.
Belle du Jour - Lawrence Of Arabia

16.  The spirit of mutiny swept the land. A tremendous, mysterious process was taking place in countless hearts: The individual personality became dissolved in the mass, and the mass itself became dissolved in the revolutionary élan.
Pre-World War I
The Battleship Potemkin

Clarification:  Pre-WWI means any time between 1900-1914.  Cold War is everything between 1945 until today that is not part of a major conflict (like Vietnam, Korea, and Gulf War I & II).

Ok, 1 more stab. Is #9 Saving Private Ryan?? Regardless, I'm sure I've seen it, and have a strong feeling the character was a pacifist who was finally provoked ..

Sorry, but have been AFK for a few days, but I have updated the correct answers.

And I really am not sure how to give any more clues without giving away the movies.  Most of these had big stars, or such a plot that it would be immediately obvious who it was about.

That's ok.  And yes, there were a lot of great quotes from that movie.  I simply wanted to pick quotes that were either older, or a little more obscure.

Thanks to everybody that participated.
