Guess That Movie! Week 104

SamuraiFrog filling in for Becca on the quiz yet again. She's been swamped as hell at work, so to make it easier on her, I'm back on the quiz. Hope that's alright.

The Rules:
If you know or think you know an answer leave your guess in the comments section. As people guess I will grey it out and give them credit (using google to find the answers will disqualify you(...I know all and see all...), the person who has the most correct guesses each week will get a fun movie genius award to decorate their blog. Any person who wins 5 weeks (consecutive or non-consecutive) will earn a Movie Master award and must then refrain from guessing for 5 weeks.

1. "Nothin'. There ain't nothin' in room 237. But you ain't got no business goin' in there anyway. So stay out. You understand? Stay out." WIEC?

2. "The important thing is the rhythm. Always have rhythm in your shaking. Now a Manhattan you shake to fox-trot time, a Bronx to two-step time, a dry martini you always shake to waltz time." padraig

3. "Now and then, for no good reason, life will haul off and knock a man flat." padraig

4. "You ever get the feelin'... I don't know, er... when you're in town and someone looks at you all suspicious, like he knows? And then you go out on the pavement and everyone looks like they know too?"

5. "That is the sound of a thousand terrible things headed this way." (The Thesp)

6. "If his brain's ran down, how can he talk?"
"It happens to people all the time, Jack." Nathan

7. "Someday someone's going to have to explain to me the virtue of a proportional response." Jaquandor

8. "Looks like a burnoose..." Jaquandor

9. "I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do..." (Payo)

10. "Leave it to me. In ten days I'll have us at war with them and make it look like their fault!" Steve ( HOORAY! YOU GOT ONE! :)

11. "You must be dead, because I don't know how to feel. I can't feel anything anymore." Jaquandor

12. "I merely chewed in self-defense, but I never swallowed." (Donovan)

13. "Mother Night! Fold your dark arms above me! Protect me, in your black embrace! I sit alone, an impotent exile... whilst this force, this...presence, returns to torment me!" (G Scott)

14. "Are you crazy? A man in a really nice camper wants to put our song on the radio! Gimme a pen, I'm signin'! You're signin'! We're all signin'!" Nathan

15. "I am the Night Rider, I am a fuel-injected suicide machine!" padraig

16. 'If I woke up with my head sewn to the carpet I wouldn't be anymore surprised than I am right now.'

17. "I ambushed him, hit him in the head with a frying pan and put him in the trunk ... so he wouldn't get hurt." (Donovan)

18. "I don't know anyone who could get through the day without two or three juicy rationalizations. They're more important than sex."
"Aw, come on. Nothing's more important than sex."
"Oh yeah? Ever gone a week without a rationalization?" padraig

19. "I've seen The Exorcist about a hundred and sixty-seven times, and it keeps getting funnier every single time I see it!" (MarcOflowa)

20. "What's a pagan?"
